This sort of came together as a bit of blind experimentation.
I've been on an unapologetic tobacco kick for a bit now, and I've really been riding Tatanka as an anchor point for myself with those mixes. It's sorta sweet and plays well with others, which had made it extremely forgiving to tie it into recipes.
Red Burley is just such a mutable base that it felt like the "right" place to go to tie in with the tatanka tobacco in an agreeable way.
Connecticut shade is an odd duck to me, there's a ton of depth there, but every time I use it, I feel like I've gotta take a leap of faith with it because the smell totally hides how tasty it can be when used to accent a mix.
With that, the horchata was chosen to help add the cinnamon spice notes and a touch of body in tandem with the magic that is sweet coconut, which was chosen for both the flavor and the density of it. I wanted a bit of weight to the mix along with that sweet coconut flavor.
Finally FLV smooth vanilla acts as something of a bridge between the tobaccos and the coconut-horchata mixture.
I was looking for a tobacco blend that wasn't sweet, but didn't want to go all the way into ashtray territory either. I wanted to capture the deep, rich aroma of a freshly opened pouch of Drum rolling tobacco and add a little smoke to that, and this comes close enough for government work.
FLV Red Burley and FLV Kentucky Blend are the "body" tobaccos and establish a deep "brown" foundation. FLV Oak Barrel dries things out a little bit and accents the woody elements, while FLV Beer Nuts adds just enough saltiness to push things a bit further into dry/savory territory.
INW Tobacco DNB adds ash and smoke, and helps counteract the sweetness of the VG.
OOO Smokey Bacon pushes things further into savory territory and enhances the smoky/ashy notes from INW Tobacco DNB. It adds some of the missing elements I was looking for in dry tobacco profiles.
This recipe sounds a little scary at first blush with INW Tobacco DNB at 1% and the presence of OOO Smokey Bacon, but I promise it doesn't taste like an overflowing pub ashtray seasoned with scorched bacon bits. Instead, it's a very pleasant, dry, savory, smoky tobacco. It's vapable straight from the mixing table, but if you let it sit overnight after mixing, it gets even better.
It's tailored for MTL builds, and my reference build for this recipe is a 1 ohm 26 gauge Kanthal coil, 3mm internal diameter, in a QP Gata RTA, running around 18-20 watts. For additional reference, I mixed this using Liquid Barn's 12mg premixed base, which is 80% VG and 20% PG. After mixing, it comes out around 75ish% VG.
Tobacco's are one of my favorites to mix in DIY and American Patriots is one of my favorite commercial ejuice.
Described as a sweet caramel bourbon full bodied tobacco but I wanted a better version a little more flavor and wetness. Red Burley was a sure choice at 2.5% added some Turkish to the mix added depth and aged bourbon Cream with a hint of caramel works perfectly...
So the name would lead you to believe that this one gives you bad breath...to the contrary it is my way of continuing to release recipes that do not have child inviting names..i mean how many children even know what Halitosis is right? Plus i thought it was funny...Let me know what you all think...THANKS. Here is a link to my video mixing and discussing this recipe.
so RY4 caramel vanilla Tobacco
FLV CREAM AND VANILLA BEAN - Provide the creaminess and the vanilla note
FLV SMOKED BUTTERSCOTCH - useed here to support the caramel and add some more depth to the mix
FLV CARAMEL - used low this one is a smooth caramel if you push this one higher it becomes a kind of homemade caramel that didnt cook long enough..it gets brown sugar grainy notes for me.
FLV RED BURLEY - Well well I love this flavor its tobacco and i get a bit of coco notes as well
While the percentages here seem low because its all Flavorah it IS a FULL FLAVORED Vape after the steep.
I put 10 day steep however i shake and vape it and it changes to something even better around 14 days.
Chocolate Virgina Tobacco
( All Flavorah Recipe)
This was my go to hand-rolling blend and i think this mix nails the most remarcable notes i remember from back in the day.
Golden virginia is a sweet, smooth blend and i always smelled a dark chocolate note when opening a new bag, thats why we have Chocolate deutsch in the mix also helps smoothing out the finish.
Virginia was an obvious one, this concentrate is pretty one dimensional so here just adds the sweet and bright virginia leafy notes.
The main tobacco of the mix is Cured, as a generic tobacco filling is the best, also plays wonders with Red Burley, both giving each other complexity and some chocolate - nutty nuances.
To add that little extra notes of realism i used Cream and Sweet Cigarette.
Golden Virginia is a super smooth blend, quite sweet with the smoke being dense but yet soft and slightly ashy :
0.8% Cream and 0.2% Sweet cigarette nail this part.
Mix / Steep:
I suggets 70/30 to get an extra smooth vape but 60/40 is also really nice.
You can SnV or either leave it 3-5 days to settle down but as always with FLV Tobaccos after 2 weeks they come back in a really nice and nuanced way.
(All Flavorah recipe)
Kentuky blend is my personal favourite is slightly ashy, woodsy, spicy and with a sweet caramel vibe, here is the main note.
To support it a bit of red burley to keep the earthy tobacco vibe and a touch of virginia to add brightness and sweetnes.
Flv Bourbon adds a nice bourbon sweetness and taste, as well as , a noticeable charred oak, and to make it even more present im using Oak barrel wich gives a cleaner oak top note.
To me FLV Oak Barrel tastes like an old, still wet(altough its quite dry) from storing bourbon, dark wood like taste.
And to smooth out everthing a bit of cream.
Steep Time: You can Snv or either leave it 3-5 days, but after 2 weeks is when flavorah tobaccos come back and bourbon reaches it full potential.
Mix at: 70Vg/30Pg
This ratio is best as 50/50-60/40 are a bit throughty and thin in my opinion.
Also this extra VG adds some sweetness but feel free to choose.
