A Camel Turkish Jade inspired mix, intended for a short-steep & MTL vape (Kayfun Prime for me specifically).
When you need a nice bacco vape quick, hangsen and FLV seem to be the ones to go for. I was considering HS Arabic but didn't want the fruity notes so much as just a camel-ish tobacco blend.
Opted for HS Turkish combined with a bit of FLV Oriental for a decently dynamic, leafy/spicy base to build around. FLV CC is bringing some of that ash note and adding a touch of a burley note to liven up the tobacco mix. A dash of menthol arctic and ws-23 for that nice mentholated effect. S'camel is simply an additive that brings some Ethyl Maltol and Acetyl Pyrazine here to subtly sweeten, soften, and add a touch of nutty/graininess to the recipe.
One of my DIY goals was to create a decent Camel recipe, and I think this one is pretty damn good.
I was inspired by Astur’s recipe El Camello. It looked really good so I mixed it up, and it made me really appreciate INW S’Camel (which is also sold as Dromedary and Pyramid.)
I started reading a bunch of reviews for Camel Unfiltereds, and decided to up the nuttiness and earthiness of the S’Camel with some HS No 5 and FLV Red Burley. The No 5 gives it a toasted nutty flavor like a good Burley Blend aught to have. The Red Burley brings a bit of that dark, earthy tobacco. No 5 and Red Burley make a real nice couple in my opinion.
Then I had to get that sweet, spicy Turkish tobacco to make it a Camel. Tobacco Absolute Oriental (also from the El Camello recipe) was an obvious first choice. Brings some authentic tobacco taste with it. HS Desert Ship was in some earlier versions, but I tried to take it somewhere else for a little bit, but eventually came back around to it. It’s kind of a hard flavor to describe, but it’s good. It’s sort of dry and has some spice to it, but someone with a more refined palette and larger vocabulary would have to expand further than that. Definitely way better than FA Desert Ship. So if the FA version has scared you away from trying it, fear not. They are different.
DNB just doin’ DNB things.
It’s quite good after just a few days, but is ideal after 2 weeks. I’ll meet that half way and say 10 days.
