An attempted knock off of a Starbucks limited edition Smoked Butterscotch Latte, that I have never tasted. This should be fun, I quit drinking coffee on a regular basis long ago, and I don't buy Starbucks, ever! The resulting vape was so good that my husband wanted a bottle of it made immediately. (His version is minus the OoO Cream.)
I believe I went with the safer noob choices of flavors here.
WF Brazilian Coffee was the closest to an espresso coffee that I had in my stash. Paired with VT Caffe Lattte and VT Coffee Milk Froth, the coffee latte itself came out fairly balanced, but I may have gotten the percentages too high.
FLV Smoked Butterscotch was my only choice for the smoked butterscotch flavor, but it needed help with the sweeter part of the butterscotch imo. I know that too much of the FLV SM could be overpoweringly ashy after a few days steep, so I chose to add FW Butterscotch Ripple as butterscotch support and a bridge between the creams.
When the recipe steeped out, and the coffee was still a bit strong, I found it still needed more cream, so I added some OoO Cream Milky Undertone to smooth it all out. I could have very well lowerd my coffee notes, but I like it this way.
Of course, true to me, I sweetened with my fave combo of NN Monk Fruit Extract and NN Stevia. Feel free to sweeten however you chose to.
if you like some coffee with your cream well this is it.
Using FW as a main butterscotch note because it’s a heavy, creamy butterscotch. The addition of FLV smoked butterscotch adds the toasted smoked notes. TFA Irish cream is an old trick of mine used in small amounts to boost and deepen the butterscotch notes. I used FA Capuchino for the main sweet slightly creamy coffee notes and boosted it with a little Dark bean in order to push the coffee through the dense butterscotch notes.
I felt it needs some additional undescriptive cream notes without too much of a heavy vanilla and without adding additional heavy cream notes, so I combined cream fresh and Vanilla Ice cream from FA since both those creams are light and milky. TFa toasted marshmallow is in the mix as the sweetener and to add another layer of toasted notes.
Solub Arome's cafe vanilla cacao as the main coffee base with Vape Train's coffee milk froth to accentuate and add a frothy/whipped note. FLV's Butterscotch and Smoked Butterscotch for obvious reasons with the Nic River Vanilla Bacco. Tobaccos help boost coffee flavors for some reason and the added vanilla note is a nice bonus.
Result is a light coffee with cream with vanilla smoked butterscotch "creamer" effect.
A subtlety spiced full crust apple pie.
An apple pie recipe has been a hit & miss experience for me for quite some time in an eLiquid as I found it's difficult to enjoy often due to my palette being left feeling dry from pastry flavors that seemingly linger. Thankfully in 2019 there are a lot more flavors that are available that can help avoid this.
What I have developed here is a full home baked crusted & delicately spiced apple pie recipe with a lovely splash of thick delicious custard.
However patience is the key to success here, for best results a 2 week steep is a necessity. It vapeable before hand but the spice notes from the FW Dutch apple pie are little to forward and need this time to meld properly with the other flavours. It's worth the wait. This is not a quick over the counter or supermarket apple pie, this is "Home Baked".
FLV Apple Filling - is the awesome cooked apple in this pie with some lovely rich cinnamon notes. This is rare for a Flavorah concentrate to be pushed this high but this one loves to be pushed a little higher in bakeries I find.
FW Dutch Apple PIe - Is an underrated concentrate in my opinion. It offers some rich bakery & cooked apple notes and when used low as I have here it really can give a rich fruity recipe a solid centre to help bridge a profile.
FA Apple Pie - Has slight yet brighter apple notes than the others but it's crust which is dominant is mainly why this is used here. It is a very stable and enjoyable pastry crust to use in most fruity bakery profiles.
WF Croissant - Assists with some flakiness of the crust and adds some lovely contrast to the pastry.
FLV Smoked Butterscotch - for that fresh baked straight from the oven accent to this profile really does well here.
FA Custard Premium - This thick authentic silky custard is the best going around right now in my opinion. It really helps to balance the whole profile here as it covers the pie but doesn't drown those nuances of flavour either. This is the savior to an apple pie recipe profile because it helps to not only make the vape not dry over time but helps fill out the mouthfeel of this very enjoyable vape.
Variation of Sweetness - If you feel this isn't sweet enough DO NOT reach for the supersweet ! Rather go for 0.5% of VTA Golden Syrup. I tried this when testing and it gives the right amount of dark sweetness here if you're a sweet tooth.

IMO this is a very pleasant and enjoyable vape on a single coil RDA at 60W with a SST single coil at 0.2 ohm
@id10t mentioned he wanted a graham cracker butterscotch tobacco. Since LB didn’t do a very good job of it with their concentrate. So I decided to take a stab at it. It is really tasty off the shake but with FLV tobaccos they fade out around 5-7 days then come back around day 10-14. So I would recommend a 10 day steep.
Lets face it, blondes have more fun. This is my take on a blonde s'more. While I don't have any marshmallow flavor in here, the vanilla and smoked butterscotch provide that toasty fluffiness you want. Pair that with the delicious fw butterscotch and fa graham crust and you have a delicious blonde s'more. I know a lot of people prefer fw graham cracker and I was one of them, but fa graham crust provides a cleaner more authentic flavor.
This bunny is crushing ass, slamming scotch and going all in just in time for Easter baby. Now that I have that out of my system, I myself don't enjoy many tobacco recipes but I am digging this one more than most i have tried. It is ever so slightly sweet and nutty with stronger notes of vanilla and caramel. Then all brought together with an earthy authentic tobacco finish. If you fancy yourself a tobacco person or just enjoy tobacco recipes then please mix it up and let me know what you think.

Created using the new FLV Sweet and Smokey Tobacco. This is a sweet tobacco with some ashy notes. I paired it with fLV Tatanka which is a dark sweet cheeing tobacco. Butterscotch is used to make it more desserty, and pairs perfectly with Smoked Butterscotch. To enhance a bit of nuttiness from the tobacco i used Kinako Soy, and this needed a fruit to bring in some sweeter notes, so Fig was used as an accent. Of course FLV Cream is perfect to blend together and smooth any off notes. So take a ride with me and try this delicious tobacco. And if it was meant to be, leave your thoughts. 💜💜💜.
