Ooofff I had so much fun creating this one!
I’m a weirdo that enjoys a complex tobacco tobacco with hints of sweet notes and layers.
The following combinations created my cigarrillo
Max blend for the darker tobacco notes
Desert Ship has spicy notes and has a dryer yellow tobacco note
DK Tab brings a nutty aspect with sweet tobacco notes
Clove is a my separator and dances around all the other flavors
Out of all the bourbons out there I picked aged bourbon cream because it serves dual purpose it brings bourbon to the party while emulsifying the tobaccos and blending really nicely with the Honeybee I used for the touch of honey note. Sweet Fig is that surprise flavor I placed smack in the middle of this mix that makes vaping this tobacco quite a unique experience because in this mix it almost taste like a plumb note.
To round out the recipe I finished it off with sweet and smokey tobacco it does exactly what is expected adds a smokey sweet finish.
This semi sweet slightly a medium body lightly spiced tobacco blended dry raw almond notes wrapped in a nice leathery tobacco leaf. The coconut, kinako soy and vanilla add a nice creamy smooth note to the mix that rounds everything out and keeps it from being overly dry.
Optional additive: To make this mix slightly ashy you can add a tiny amount of FA black fire but careful with Black Fire because it can easily overwhelm a recipe. 1 drop per 15ML is enough for my taste. I use blackfire in recipes the same way I use sweetener it’s an additive.
Optional Additives: To reduce the sweetness in this recipe you can use 0.5% bitter wizard
I never found a coffee / tobacco recipe I liked. They all were just a mess, either not enough coffee or not enough tobacco or just off in general. I found Connecticut Shade and knew it had to be the one. This is good S&V, gets even better after a couple weeks, but I'll say 10 days would be fine.
This is a really interesting flavor to me. A slightly spiced, wet, and earthy tobacco, with a little cacao and bourbon. There is also some coffee here, and it meshes perfectly with dark bean. It's a little top heavy, but other stuff helps with that.
Red Burley / Kentucky Blend:
A perfect combo to give a little more tobacco, round out the Shade, and dry things out a bit.
Not much to say. I started with this at .4, but it seemed to fade into / blend into the Shade too much, so I bumped it up. Nice bit of coffee without that awful burned popcorn.
This is the bridge between the Shade and everything else. Shade can really take over a mix, and is hard to get into the middle. Bourbon does this really well, and adds a little warmth and bourbon for you boozehounds putting liquor in your coffee.
I like this stuff as an accent. Hell I even like it more as a main note. Here it adds just a little to the shades spices, and makes the bourbon not so bourbon-y. I know a lot of people don't like it, leave it out if you want, but it's quite nice here.
