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.
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.

Banana cigar with a hint of vanilla. What's in a while I get sick of Sweet bakery in custard Vapes. Tank or two of this clears my palate right back with the sweet stuff. This is in my opinion is a really good cigar vape. With fresh banana and a small hint of vanilla he might just forget your vaping a tobacco.
Profile: Jammy Dark Berries and Tobacco
Preface: "I do not like tobaccos" is what I told myself for the longest time. I'm still not convinced I do like them. But Cabin, even though it's not a true tobacco, changed my mind. It's got me wanting to play with tobaccos a bit more. Finally, after like 3 or 4 separate orders I was able to get my hands on FLV Jammy Berry. When I got it and smelled it, I was instantly reminded of those Backwoods Berry Cigars. Ya know, those cheap ass gas station ones that come in a pack of like 5 and look like shitty blunts? Yeah those. Thus this idea was born, not exactly a Berry Cigar, but just a quick and simple Berry Tobacco.
FLV Jammy Berry - The star of the show. It's doing all of the leg work here, bringing the blend of dark berries building a main note.
FA Blackcurrant - Mainly just here to back up the Jammy Berry add a bit more depth and jammyness.
FLV Virginia - Sweet leafy sorta tobacconess. I pushed this up to 4% because the Jammy Berry and Blackcurrant are a somewhat powerful duo and it worked out wonderfully. Virginia falls blissfully to the tail end of the mix to wrap it all up.
I haven't had a bottle last me more than a week, but within that week, nothing silly has happened. Shake it. Vape it. Enjoy it!
There ain't a whole lot of crazy complexity or fancyness going on here. Just a simple and delicious Berry Tobacco for even the tobacco haters. As the always lovely @mlNikon would say...." ***ing mix it up!"
Dark, rich and rewarding tobacco . This ons is not for feint-hearted.
LB tobacco/Flv Conneticut shade - dark and morbid with deep fermented tones and accents of cloves and cardemon. In fact, it is so depressing it makes Norilsk seem like Disney land in spring.
We then drape the tobacco base in a macabre blanket of flv cured and minora blades while whimsically whisling to the tune of "Dress rehearsal rags" by Leonard Cohen.
Flv virginia - the sweet golden virginia provides the last sliver of hope that helps you cling on to your mortal coil.
FA black pepper - to burn your tongue, if you dare lick your wounds.
Its is a fantastically dark and rich tobacco profile with deep aromatic tones and a lingering tobacco aftertaste... Oh and it hits like a ton of bricks.
In a slightly intoxicated state on night, I figured a strawberry cigarette was a good idea.
When I woke up the next morning, I realized it WAS a good idea. This is a simple mix that somehow has loads of complexity. Notes below.
FLV Kentucky Blend/FLV Virginia Tobacco - After months of testing different tobaccos to create IPA Smoke, I realized that these two work really well together to create a pseudo-cigarette profile. The Kentucky Blend is earthy, dark, dirty, and deep. It has smokey notes in it, some subtle sweetness, but overall, it's just a delicious dark pipe tobacco that really gives some "ash" on the back end after a few days of steeping. Virginia Tobacco, is light and dry. It has more of that light cigarette tobacco feel to it. There's some bitterness that plays really nicely with the sweetness of Kentucky Blend. In this mix, using Virginia Tobacco at a higher percentage helps fight the overt sweetness we get from the strawberry and brown sugar. Back in college, I made a friend that rolled his own cigarettes using a blend of cherry pipe tobacco with some full bodied cigarette tobacco. I fell in love with those smokes. To me, the mix of FLV Kentucky Blend with FLV Virginia Tobacco is almost a perfect emulation of those cigarettes I used to bum from him.
INW Shisha Strawberry/TPA Brown Sugar - When working with profiles like tobaccos, custards, ice creams, etc, I've found that INW Shisha Strawberry works incredibly well. I typically rock the FA Strawberry/CAP Sweet Strawberry combination when I'm creating full fruit profiles. But in this mix, using that combination was pretty disgusting. Which isn't too surprising. Who wants a candied strawberry profile with a dirty cigarette? Probably no one. Or maybe a fucking coward. Who knows. But with INW Shisha Strawberry, we get a nice blend of a deep, slightly overripe, authentic strawberry with a touch of sweetness. I've read before that mixing INW Shisha Strawberry with things like caramel and dark sugar doesn't really work. While that may be true for typical application, we can see that this is not your standard strawberry recipe. In this, the addition of TPA Brown Sugar not only amplifies the nuances within the tobaccos, but also nearly exaggerates the overripe sweetness of the strawberry.
Shake and vape is definitely good, but after 3 days, the strawberries and tobaccos blend together into something special. Before the steep, the two stay fairly separate, but after a few days, they meld together and we get, truly, a strawberry cigarette.
This is a weird profile, I admit. It's strange, not an ADV by any stretch of the imagination. However, I find myself constantly wanting it for a few hits. It's really odd, really tasty, and a good way for ya boy to start off 2019.
EDIT: OK, anything below is out the window. It's gone through so many changes since I posted this that the profile has nothing to do with where I began or was striving for. HOWEVER, it came out to be a really tasty vape so that's why I'm leaving it up.
Was trying to emulate my favorite pipe tobacco I used to roll into cigarettes back in the day. It kind of took a turn when the profile matched, but the experience was just meh. Added some depth with the fruit and it rounded out nicely but nowhere close to what I was going for. Incredibly smooth.
This is one of those, that if you don't have all the flavors, you can probably mix and match, but if you're getting sick of the same fruit/desert mixes, winter is rolling around and you need a change, go for the Nic Riv splurge and get em all. You need these in your pantry anyways.
This my first 1-2-3 recipe. The Virginia Tobacco is a sweet, leafy flavor. I used TPA Pear and FLV Apple Filling to bend it into something else entirely. I wouldn't really say this qualifies as a tobacco recipe. It's more of a rustic and light autumnal fruit mix with a hint of cinnamon. The steeping part is up to you. It works as a shake and vape recipe, but FLV tobaccos are known to get better at the two week mark.
I derive from the sun, utilizing its energies. I'm here to communicate not just illuminate. (last sentence of a poem by Zoe Ann Grimwood, UK)
Solar Flare, a tobacco vape based on cookies and tobacco, gently embraced by a smooth Vanilla Bourbon cream from FA
FLV Virginian tobacco, a less harsh, earthy tobacco flavor, a perfect tobacco flavor to be molded with the spices and soft cookie aromas from the FLV Sweet dough and FLV Sun Cookie. FA Vanilla Bourbon blends the whole mix by adding a creamy layer and depth to this wonderful juice.
It needs 3 weeks (or longer) to steep before it gets a sudden flash of increased brightness :-)
