A bright tropical blend of Cherimoya, Guanabana, Mango, and Cherries in a delicate whipped cream.

INW Mango: I started originally with FLV Mango but found it to stand out too much and take on a syrupy tone when combined with the others. At 2% the mango is straightforward and present, with a mild "green" note freshly mixed. This helps create a strong tropical base for the Guanabana and Cherimoya flavors to work their magic.

FLV Guanabana: My first attempts used this much higher, but I found it to also take on a sort of syrupy texture when I used it too high, so over a few revisions I dialed it back to 1.5%. At this percentage, in conjunction with Cheriymoya, we get a nice authentic Soursop that's both tangy and bright.

INW Cherimoya: This stuff is potent as hell, but authentic. Freshly mixed it'll overpower the Guanabana but after a steep they blend well to create a singular Soursop flavor. It has a bit of a peel flavor to it that I feel adds to the authenticity without overtly affecting the final profile.

INW Cherries: Anything less than 2% and you can't taste them in this mix at all. Initially I feared this would cause some unwanted medicinal flavors, but I found that when combined with other strong bodied flavors they did exactly the opposite. A bright, but not overpowering cherry note to sweeten the final mix. Initially I used a few strawberry variations in the place of this, but found the INW Cherries to do a much better job at sweetening the mix while adding a little more tartness to the final profile.

CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream: All original versions of this contained FA Whipped Cream, but as it's been discontinued I reformulated to use CAP. This final touch adds a light, but sweet cream base to smooth over some of the green/tart notes while creating a nice sweet finish that doesn't take away from the authenticity of the fruits or add a granulated sugar type flavor. At 2.5% it's perceptibly present, but not overly so.


Recipe Notes

The target of this mix is to reach a delicious fruit vape that is also sweet. In order to really stand out in this initial mix round, I went after the most difficult fruit I could think to create and still be complete with only three ingredients. Originally I was thinking of a perfect mango and I know how to get it but really to do it right it takes 4 ingredients. Then Cherry came to mind. I feel it gets a bad rap because there are so many trash cherries out there. Sippin on some syrupppp. Fruit. It needed to be something difficult. I worked through a mango, but eventually set on an Inawera only mix. Then from there I wanted to showcase the INW Cherries as a star that it is. A real delicious cherry flavor with other spiced notes and a sweetness that helped due to the 3 flavor limit. The back notes of Raspberry and Two Apples are showcase amazing Inawera flavorings. The percentage had to be super low to work with these damn strong flavors. Most recommended pure INW mixes at 5 but I feel the cherries can hang higher than previously attempted USA public recipes. Why these 3? They are by far some of the most intriguing flavors I have encountered and they are so easy to mess up. Harshness and perfume are both fears of over-mixing these ingredients and I feel I have danced the limit of these while keeping the total flavouring on these sound. This mix is good day one, AMAZING day 3.

So in the end here were my personal limitations for this mix:
1. Inawera Only
2. No Sweeteners or EM etc.
3. No Easy Fruits
4. Cherry - A very hard flavor to mix well
5. Hitting a real ideal inw total mix that is neither harsh or too perfumey

Flavor Selection

INW Cherries: This is my star. For multiple reasons I selected this cherry. It is sweet. It still holds a real cherry note, it just doesnt work in the same zone as other cherry flavors. It ranks only second to my favorite cherry, Cherries in Liquor which is the most amazing add in for any fruits. So its just an awesome cherry hands down. 3.25% is awesome gives enough sweet to finish while keeping a nice sharp cherry note as the lead.

INW Raspberry: The real king of Raspberries of our 5 brand options. This is by far the most complex, floral, and intriguring raspberry. It is a killer good and killer strong flavor. Where most won't go out of the 1% limit, in some instances it actually can blend in better above that. I kept it under control and somehow these three just work together in such a great way perfume issues never appeared which helped things.

INW Two Apples: Why this vs. Fuji? It is a more motts apple flavor to me, and hangs in there with a different fruit note that stands out among the strong raspberry and cherry notes. This is kept lowest just because it is harsh above 2% and really just is enough at lower to give it a better note. If Fuji flavor and Two Apples flavor were compared id prefer an apple that tastes like two apples so I went with that over say the Anton Apple which was also an option. Still feel Two Apples was best choice for finishing the mix.

Final Thoughts: Thanks for taking the time to mix this. I hope that you enjoy the flavors of it. 60mls into it myself and enjoying it personally as an adv.
