Working off the first BETA release, the common consensus was that that introduction of the deeper, darker, more "matured" flavor, hindered the great aspects of the original Obsidian. The French Pipe seemed to be the biggest issue, especially after steeping. I needed to find a way to bridge the sweeter cookie notes to the darker tobacco, while keeping that luxurious RY4 finish. After a lot of tweaking, I found that replacing the Butterscotch with Smoked Butterscotch, and French Pipe for Tatanka - provides that case.
I'm curious as to your notes on this and would love any feedback. I still want "darker" undertones, I want smokier flavor, and I may even add some ash. But I think this is a much better improvement over the first BETA.

I'm not sure what this is. . . I started to make like a butterscotch latte, but this turned out a little denser than that. A Coffee Butterscotch creme that you'd find at the center of a chocolate truffle. Maybe similar to some kind of soft caramel.
The SSA Cappuccino Coffee is a great coffee flavor. Well balanced but super dark.
The VT English Toffee and FLV Smoked Butterscotch is dynamite! A rich and layered butterscotch flavor that is strong but blends into this.
The FA Milk and WF Smooth Cappuccino Cream round out everything and helping the coffee and butterscotch flavors to meld together.
A little FW Sweetener to bump everything and help with the creams. I really like this and it really needs a steep. At least 10 days.
I mostly use a 28mm dual coil RDA on a stacked 21700. .3 ohms.

I’m not going to lie to ya’ll.. I didn’t SFT the chocolates. They were Hail Marys and the Lord has once again worked in my life.
What I am getting is the smoked part of the butterscotch on top, the almost dark chocolate right under and then the bright butterscotch/marshmallow on the bottom.
Imagine a fancy box of chocolates that they would share at a Bilderberg meeting that they would enjoy while planning how to replace us all with robots. Clean, thick chocolate. Dense marshmallow. Smoked butterscotch because powerful people like to hurt themselves with scotch. I got everything that I wanted out of this except for the hardness of those chocolates which, I believe, is impossible.
This is sweet and I was going to leave out the sweetener, but I argued with myself enough and I lost. You’re getting sweetener.
NOTE: OOO CARAMEL CREAM IS SSA MILKY CARAMEL FUDGE
FA BUTTERSCOTCH IS SSA BUTTERSCOTCH
Revisited this profile after trying some newer flavours out and feel this is where the origional should of been at.
The butterscotch cream pie by WF acts as like a core to build off bringing a lovely rich flavour, butterscotch SSA is somewhat simular to butterscotch ripple FW but much much better - very rich and decadent. You can leave out the smoked butterscotch but i feel it adds a slightly more authentic vibe to the vape.
Its super creamy butterscotch filling ontop of a beautiful base of cakey buttery biscuit.
Sweeten to taste 👊
This is a lighter tobacco mix with some coffee and a little bit of a dark chocolate floatin around in there. It's a recipe I've wanted to make for a long time, and was for some reason much more successful being limited to just one flavor company. I initially mixed this for a MTL setup, but I know most people mainly use a dripper or higher wattage device, so that's how I developed the profile. I also included the MTL version at the bottom of the description in case that's the way you vape. I personally get a Off The Record Raw Power kind of vibe from this, which I wasn't going for but turned out to be very similar. This one definitely has to steep for about 3 days to let biscotti calm down a little bit. That guy is big mad.
FLV Biscotti: The coffee.
FLV Tatanka: One of my favorite tobaccos from flavorah to use in dessert mixes. It has a light tobacco with a good amount of caramel, its the closest tobacco to an ry4 from them imo.
FLV Red Burley: Just threw some of this in there to boost the tobacco a bit. It also helps out the chocolate/coffee aspect too.
FLV Mocha: Used to boost the coffee/chocolate and add a cream to the mix. The cream more so shows up in a MTL setup.
FLV Smoked Butterscotch: Just to add a bit of butt scotch. When I originally mixed this it wasn't included, but when I tried this in a dripper I felt like it needed it.
FLV Sweetness: My favorite sweetener to use with dessert tobacco mixes now thanks to Developed. It sweetens everything else up without touching the tobacco.
If you wanted some more of a nutty tobacco in here, swap red burley for FLV Oriental Tobacco at the same %, that stuffs delicious. You could also boost the tobaccos as much as you want and the coffee/chocolate will still stay pretty present. I also noticed in the first couple of versions that more sweetener would bring out more chocolate as opposed to coffee.
Biscotti same percentage
Tatanka same percentage
Mocha @ 1%
Sweetness same percentage
Red Burley bumped up to 1.5, unless you want a light tobacco
Take out smoked butterscotch, as it muddles the profile in MTL. It doesn't normally do that imo, but in this recipe I noticed it.
A huge thanks to Developed and Flavorah for hosting this awesome challenge!
