Yellow Cake as the cake note/lady fingers. I wanted to use FW Creamy Sponge cake (Twinkie) or whatever but I couldn't find it. I have heard Mas. Cream from WF needs a long steep so this was made about 3 weeks ago, tested about 2 1/2 weeks in. Not sure if it does anything since I used it low. I used the Mol. coffee for the espresso note as it is a strong coffee and I personally have not liked any of the actual espresso flavors I had tried thus far. Cocoa WF is a nice chocolate so I added a touch of that but the main note is the Irish cream/ cream in general. I used FA because it is my favorite Irish cream, layered with FLV cream and whipped cream. FLV Cream adds a nice bodied cream note without adding any other inherent flavor. FLV whipped cream adds a more vanilla heavy cream note.
Taking inspiration from an absolute wizard, Mr @alfredpudding, I decided to tackle a tobacco recipe that wasn't so much about capturing a specific flavor but instead about capturing a memory or a feeling. This boozy/smokey/chocolaty recipe is meant to capture the feeling, or foster some nostalgia for an evening sitting around a campfire sipping at a bottle of whiskey and maybe toasting a few s'mores.
Not quite so elegant a solution as the 3 piece masterwork that is Cabin, we've kind of got a lot of moving parts here so let's try to break them down.
SC Old Captain - Really the root of the recipe all started here, it's a tobacco alright, but really it's so incredibly chocolaty that I knew where I wanted to go with it the second I tasted it. It's still got a bit of tobacco behind it but pushed higher than the rest to really allow that chocolate to cut through into the final product
FA 7 Leaves Ultimate - It's dry and sorta spicy, almost bringing the smell of the forest or firewood with it.
FLV Red Burley & FLV Cured Tobacco - The tobacco base needed to be emboldened to keep up with the booze and chocolate so bringing in this combo was a suggestion courtesy of @NoWar, and it absolutely works without steamrolling everything else in the mix.
FA Irish Cream - Partially aiding Kentucky Bourbon and partially helping keep the recipe from drying out to the point of being more reminiscent of a desert than a campfire.
TFA Kentucky Bourbon - Booze, but with little focus on the burn and more on the flavor that lingers on your palate.
FA Vanilla Bourbon - Just a touch of vanilla to help the chocolate along.
TFA Toasted Marshmallow - Adding a bit of sweetness but, more importantly, just a hint of smoke to help really hammer the point home.
Profile: Biscuit with Bourbon Cream
When I was a young strapping lad, my favourite biscuit (and still is from time to time) was those with bourbon cream in them as a filling.
So I set sails to create something like it.
The biscuit itself is made using a combo of JF Biscuit as for the base, adding in ooo corn bread for flavor and texture and finalizing the flavor and texture with a notch of AP.
The cream itself I decided on FA Irish Cream backed up by FLV Bourbon and to add some thickness I added TFA Marshmallow and cream.
It's not too overpowering in either the bakery or the booze, but are balanced very well.
Both inhale and exhale gives you both bakery and booze and people say, that it does smell like a biscuit too.
I left it for about 7 days steep, to where I found it exactly as I wanted it, but it might turn better over time.
