My first abstract profile, it is not really a tobacco and not even tropical. Can appeal to non tobacco lovers, as it is non smokey or leafy, but it is complex, dense and satisfying with a tropical sweetness that makes you smile (quite rightly!).
Sweet Guava is such a staple, but has little to do with an actual guava fruit (which is too pungent and weird). This is a sweet, non descript dense, fruity flavor with a delicious ripe banana note. This note pairs great with the chocolaty additives Red Burley and Connecticut Shade are, Virginia is in the background to smooth out and give a little somewhat.
Like the supposed meaning of Donovan's song, as he put it: "being mellow, laid-back, chilled out." Nothing to do with smoking banana strands or electrical bananas, for that matter.
ED: I enjoy it on a few days steep as I'm accustomed to the initial zing of FLV baccos, but it will balance out in a week, as @Xist kindly points out in the review.
Using @fear 's cardinal base for the tobacco element. Decided to use RY4 Double because i dint want Holy Holy Grail Ry4's caramel note.
Taste great off the shake.
Sippin on some knob smoked bourbon while i vape this. great combo.
Tested at 20 watts in a mtl/rdl setup.
Perique is usually described as a strong, peppery blending tobacco. I’ve done a straight Perique NET, and a few Virginia/Perique NETs, and while I see where the “peppery” description could be applied, it always came across as more of a fermented, dark fruitiness with a bit of a kick. That’s what I was going for here. Not anything that’s going to make you hate your life because it kicks so hard, but enough of a bite to make you notice.
Brandy/Red Dates/Liquid Amber in there to try to get some of that funky dark fruit. Almost like a raisin or prune wine, if that’s something you want to imagine (I think I want to imagine it.)
For the tobaccos I went with Dark for Pipe because it’s got a bit of that fruitiness that’s already got a bit of funk to it, and also adds a good kick. Black for Pipe because it’s required to be in every recipe of mine. Also because it has a dark fruit and hint of pepper-ness to it. It’s all about packing a punch. Red Burley to bring a bit more body and bass notes along with some sort of moist earthiness. Moist is the best kind of earthiness. Mmmm.
So anyway, my goal was to make a better tasting Perique than anything that is currently sold as a single flavor of the same name. Looking at you, FA. Instead of hating yourself for picking up that flavor, just mix yourself up a better Perique. Or... wait for it.... Abetta Perique. God damn I’m clever.
Sweet caramel Cream custard and bold tobacco....I use 12mg nic salts for my pod system... mixing notes just to say I'm not a pro mixer but I have been around vaping and mixing close to 3 years plus. My actual interest in vaping started out in 2010 when I was buying juice from a company called Johnson's creak this reminds me of one of there flavors...
RY '4' Flavorah
This is a RY4 tobacco mix using Flavorah.
The main elements of any RY4 is a tobacco base, caramel, and vanilla.
The tobacco I chose as my base was Virginia, a mild earthy tobacco, and I combined this with Red Burley, a dark, smooth and earthy tobacco. The caramel is created by using both caramel and butterscotch, a delicious combination. To create a bit of sweeter wood smoke type flavor to this combination I use Smoked Butterscotch. Add some Cream to this, and it creates a beautiful smooth texture to this mix. The vanilla I use is Vanilla Bean. This is going to give the perfect vanilla to go with the woodsy tobaccos and caramel layer.
This has steeped for 8 days, and is just delicious.

Trying different vanilla/custard bases, I stumbled into this mix which I find specially suggestive.
The Custard base is smooth and rich, and the tobacco notes are well defined and don't get muddled up.
(INW) Custard takes the reign for me (sorry FA Custard Premium!), (DFS) Holy Vanilla and (INW) Shisha Vanilla back it up.
- for a really intense vanilla (as commercial VCTs, pump (INW) Custard to 2.5%)
(FLV) Native Tobacco and (FLV) Kentucky Blend make a dry, leafy tobacco.
(FA) Black Fire puts some smoke in, without the ash and not being too prominent.
Doesn't need much steep, a few days and rip away!
(Black Sabbath's "Master of Reality" released July 21, 1971: as a tribute to one of the greatest albums of all time, for the name of the first song seemed too relevant to this mix. Sorry, no terpenes in the mix!)
I have really been enjoying Flavorah tobacco flavors. They are not harsh or off as alot of other offerings in this area of flavors
I like this combo of KY and Red Burley here. For tobacco lovers I am sure most would agree it id hard to go wrong with Red Burley and.......
FLV Rose Essence adds a unique sweetness to this mix and realy anything i have used it in.
TPA Vanlla Custard nothing you do not already know it is a creamy light vanilla tyoe of flavor but i didnt want that over the top Cap vanilla that is in CAP V1 Custard
INW Shisha Vanilla...just to add some more mouthfeel as well as additional vanilla flavor. I will add that the vanilla in this mix is still on the mild side and you may prefer more
If you mix this please let me know what you think as together we discover and make each other better mixers
Edit 5/3/20: This was made just as HHG v1 was going out of production. If you have v1, you wont be disappointed in this one.
The theme for mixer's club was Duets. I decided to take my love for Cardinal and try to see if I could get more tobacco out of it. My problem with Cardinal was always that it was just never enough tobacco flavor. So I decided to try it with Brigade 2506 by @ChemicalBurnVictim as like a peanut butter and jelly tobacco blend.
The results were strange. I first just lifted the holy holy grail ry4 and mixed it with BFP and TA CC. That wasn't working so I added back in everything on both recipes until I had a straight mash up of the two. For one tester, I just threw in some Am4a on a whim at 1%. for some reason that mix worked better than the others. The two recipes needed a bridge to pull them together and I'm guessing that the slightly creamy Am4a was able to bridge that gap between the caramelly HHG and the darker brigade flavorings.
Based on feedback from @ID10-T, I experimented with the levels of Am4a to get it right. I sent him some samples to try with Am4a at 0/0.3/0.5/0.7/0.9% His feedback being that the Am4a stood out too prominently at 1.0 and I was inclined to agree. Testing at various levels we both agreed that 0.5/0.7 were indistinguishable.
So, here it is at the 11th hour as Holy Holy Grail Ry4 v1 fades into diy history... Sacrilege (Amped brigade 2506)
- I do like the 0.9 version as well. It leans more to that creamy bacco side than a mash-up and you can try that out too if you like more bacco and dont mind the distraction.
- just want to take a moment to thank the Mixer's club for encouragement and feedback and to ID10-T for helping me to get the levels perfect and trying out some samples to nail it down.
Really wanted a quick SnV desert tobacco. Connecticut Shade's chocolate/coffee notes lend well to blending with the chocolate mint of CdM, and they all work with cinnamon. Added some Australian Chocolate to make the chocolate the predominant non-tobacco flavor, and then the Red Burley and Native tobaccos to make it clear this is a tobacco vape.
Bonus for anyone who thinks they deciphered the acronym. And as always... use PEG or PDO if you're gonna mix at the suggested ratio, I don't need to end up on a Throat Offenders Registry because someone thought I meant they should vape that much PG.
This is just the updated version of my original Holy Pistachio using some recommendations from ID10-t . Wanted to post a separate version so people can mix both versions easier.
