This is a true cigar experience, with its dark and ashy smoke, and a dry brown leaf taste, not your commercial vanilla Cigar E-juice, but its sweet (without sweetener) and savoury.
Fa Black Fire + INW Dirty neutral base Give the perfect black ashy smoke, they are used high as they lose a bit of strength as it steeps.
FLV Connecticut Shade+ Flavorah Cured make our Cigar wrapper, body and filling with brown leafy notes and a light smoke ring.
FA Oak Wood adds woody notes and some dry mouthfeel and aftertaste finished by INW TA Cuban Cigar Which adds more smoky dryness and some actual cigar flavour.
VTA Cigar Leaf Serves as the base and background notes, wrapping everything together, adding light caramel sweetness and subtle cigar leafy notes.
The more you let it steep the smoother it gets.
It needs around 7 days to smooth out and let dnb and Black fire to settle down.
60/40 is the highest ratio of VG i recomend or it feels strange, 50/50 is best.
A small tribute to ChemicalBurnVictim's Brigade 2506.
Having adapted the Brigade little TFA Western to make it less forward and pipe-y, making it the Western Brigade, this is the other way around.
Using my favourite INW Dark (more leathery/aromatic than Black) and INW Garuda (leafy cigar).
TFA Western brings a "nasty" cigarette-like leathery note that blends together with the smoky pair of INW DNB and FA Black Fire.
For MTL/POD would up by 50% the 3 tobaccos.
A smooth, full bodied spiced tobacco. Perfect for a late night by the fireplace. Maybe you’ll have some whisky, maybe you won’t. You probably should.

A caramel apple pie pipe tobacco. Has a nice kick to it. The kind of tobacco recipe that is well suited for sitting on porch in late September to unwind from the day.

Made for a pod system (the Innokin EQS pod system, to be exact). I wanted something woody and smoky with a heavy-handed pour of vanilla. The Ylang Ylang edges the vanillas in a spicy, floral direction, which meshes well with the Red Oak and sandalwood of Wood Spice. Black Fire adds the char. Vanilla Ruyan, also, helps bring this into the realm of a smoked vanilla essence. Butterscotch is there as deeper note underneath and to bring a level of richness to the table. Even with other devices charged and filled, I keep reaching back for this. It's a welcome change of pace. It's not really like anything else, it just is what it is . . . smoky, woody vanilla
Sure, sounds like a delicious food, but damnit we don't have any good bacon flavors in the flavoring market. So in an effort to add a hint of what might taste like bacon to a maple frosted donut, I added FA oak wood and FA Black Fire to add that smokey wood note to it. It works for a hint of bacon, more like donuts deep friend in bacon grease, rather than slices of bacon on it, but that was as close as I could get it. It does need a 2 to 3 week steep. It's not a shake and vape for me.
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!)
Took my favourite INW tobaccos (the pair) and FLV ones (another pair) and mixed them, resulting in a surprinsingly balanced smooth real tobacco/cigar.
INW Classic for pipe Dark - gives bold character
INW Tobacco Absolute Garuda - adds the smooth cigar leaf
FLV Native - one of the greatest
INW Shisha Vanilla - adds smoothness, but hardly stands out
FA Black Fire - great smoke touch
Was going to use it as a base, but my pal says its great as it is. Enjoy!
