Perique is usually described as a strong, peppery blending tobacco. I’ve done a straight Perique NET, and a few Virginia/Perique NETs, and while I see where the “peppery” description could be applied, it always came across as more of a fermented, dark fruitiness with a bit of a kick. That’s what I was going for here. Not anything that’s going to make you hate your life because it kicks so hard, but enough of a bite to make you notice.
Brandy/Red Dates/Liquid Amber in there to try to get some of that funky dark fruit. Almost like a raisin or prune wine, if that’s something you want to imagine (I think I want to imagine it.)
For the tobaccos I went with Dark for Pipe because it’s got a bit of that fruitiness that’s already got a bit of funk to it, and also adds a good kick. Black for Pipe because it’s required to be in every recipe of mine. Also because it has a dark fruit and hint of pepper-ness to it. It’s all about packing a punch. Red Burley to bring a bit more body and bass notes along with some sort of moist earthiness. Moist is the best kind of earthiness. Mmmm.
So anyway, my goal was to make a better tasting Perique than anything that is currently sold as a single flavor of the same name. Looking at you, FA. Instead of hating yourself for picking up that flavor, just mix yourself up a better Perique. Or... wait for it.... Abetta Perique. God damn I’m clever.
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!

Heavy ,roll your own style, tobacco vape with dark tobacco-spicy -leather-honey notes.needs a good 3week steeping,but can be vaped after 14 days.certainly not a snv mix,inawera's tobaccos are not that kind.i only vape this in mtl device,i don't think it is suitable for rda
king of the road says you move too slow
This was just a winging it type of thing. I got the New York Cheesecake a while back, but never used it. I figured I’d try to do something with it. INW Marzipan is pretty tasty, so in it went. Meringue just because. And Dark for Pipe because it’s got some of those dark fruit notes that goes really well with the Marzipan in my opinion. So this isn’t really supposed to be anything. I wasn’t shooting for a cherry cheesecake pipe or something weird like that. Just picked some flavors that I thought would work well together.
V1 used TPA Vanilla Custard that was a bad idea not pleasant at all. V2 is the current version. FLV Cream works very nicely along side TPA Honeysuckle & Shisha Vanilla. I wanted a strongish vanilla note so i pair INW Shisha Vanilla with INW Vanilla for PIpe. I used INW Gold Ducat for its toasty nutty tobacco (which can taste an awful lot like sun tan lotion if used to high). I used FLV Cured because it generally fits in any tobacco in my opinion.
INW Dark for Pipe: is a darkish tobacco with some subtle honey and chocolate notes
INW Vanilla for Pipe: is a really good vanilla with some mild tobacco notes.
FLV Tatanka: is a dark syrupy tobacco
TPA Toasted Marshmallow: added this for some toasty notes and to thicken the cream
TPA Vanilla Custard: I have had this flavor for awhile but have never used it in a recipe. It seems more like a vanilla pudding rather than a custard. So I started messing around with it and tobaccos and a few tweaks here and there and i came up with this
This is my most recent take on a cactus-pipe tobacco project that I started over a year ago. The general idea was to create a tobacco vape that had cactus flavor. A primary concern was to use the INW Cactus concentrate in a way that tasted good, while still keeping the character of a tobacco vape. Weird, fruity, deep, aromatic, and satisfying, I think I got it.
To quote the storied wordsmith /u/ID10-T: "It's sort of like opening a fresh pack of fancy cigarettes and taking a deep whiff, while drinking a cactus beer."
FLV Native Tobacco--Oh yeah, baby. It took me a while to get around to ordering this, but once I did I knew I would be using it in this. A bit of spice, plenty of body, and just enough sweetness make it click with its prickly dancing partner.
INW Cactus -0.75%-I chose this percentage because I wanted it to be noticed, informing the vape, and lending fruity flavor without making it soggy or turning it into an aloe-tobacco (ew). It works, but it needs some help getting integrated into the profile without soaking it so..
FLV Yakima Hops--I use this here to bind with the Cactus and introduce it to the tobacco in a way that avoids soaking it. The brightness pairs well and it provides bit of a buffer in flavor and mouthfeel with its dry, earthy tones.
INW Dark for Pipe--This is in a support role to the Native Tobacco with the function of filling out the base notes. It is also the reason why the recommended steep time is 4 weeks here. It provides a heavy richness that fills out a bit after steeping and completes the package. I am tempted to try to work Black for Pipe in here instead, but that is only because it is my favorite tobacco ever, if I am being honest. Black for Pipe competes a bit too much elsewhere in the recipe.

I really liked TPA RY4 Double solo when I got it, but it got boring quick. Obviously not enough tobacco, top heavy, and just kind of flat. I was working on another variation with DFS Holy Holy Grail, but that needs to be something else completely. I tried a few existing recipes that were using additional tobacco to bolster RY4Ds, but they were still lacking in my opinion. INW Dark for Pipe was an obvious choice, and is a perfect match with RY4D. I really like this stuff fresh just because of how potent Dark for Pipe is, but after 3 weeks everything has come together and blended wonderfully. If you want an RY4 that has some serious punch this is what you are looking for.
INW Classic for pipe Dark:
This stuff I awesome. Dark, earthy, skunky tobacco with some dark fruit and a little cacao. It's an absolutely perfect match with RY4D, and the cigar / fruit / cacao make this a perfect base for a stanky RY4.
INW Classic for pipe Black:
A legit full bodied, smoky tobacco to add a bit more depth and authenticity to the Dark.
TPA RY4 Double:
Not much that needs to be said about this. A really fantastic RY4, I get loads of smooth caramel, and almost no vanilla or tobacco. Which is great because I really don't like vanilla. This started high, but after a couple variations it ended up at 4%. At first it really stands out, but after some time it comes together with Dark and they blend perfectly.
FA Oak Wood:
This was the perfect way to add a little more body while also adding some wood and a little more sweetness that I wanted but wasn't quite getting after dropping the RY4D to where it is. Also doesn't add any additional gunkyness while bringing a little more authenticity to the tobacco base.
