The theme for mixer's club was Duets. I decided to take my love for Cardinal and try to see if I could get more tobacco out of it. My problem with Cardinal was always that it was just never enough tobacco flavor. So I decided to try it with Brigade 2506 by @ChemicalBurnVictim as like a peanut butter and jelly tobacco blend.
The results were strange. I first just lifted the holy holy grail ry4 and mixed it with BFP and TA CC. That wasn't working so I added back in everything on both recipes until I had a straight mash up of the two. For one tester, I just threw in some Am4a on a whim at 1%. for some reason that mix worked better than the others. The two recipes needed a bridge to pull them together and I'm guessing that the slightly creamy Am4a was able to bridge that gap between the caramelly HHG and the darker brigade flavorings.
Based on feedback from @ID10-T, I experimented with the levels of Am4a to get it right. I sent him some samples to try with Am4a at 0/0.3/0.5/0.7/0.9% His feedback being that the Am4a stood out too prominently at 1.0 and I was inclined to agree. Testing at various levels we both agreed that 0.5/0.7 were indistinguishable.
So, here it is at the 11th hour as Holy Holy Grail Ry4 v1 fades into diy history... Sacrilege (Amped brigade 2506)
- I do like the 0.9 version as well. It leans more to that creamy bacco side than a mash-up and you can try that out too if you like more bacco and dont mind the distraction.
- just want to take a moment to thank the Mixer's club for encouragement and feedback and to ID10-T for helping me to get the levels perfect and trying out some samples to nail it down.
This is my attemp to create a cigarrette recipe. Based on reviews on noted I went with M-Style because of it's semi close flavor to malrboro (which is what I used to smoke) and FLV Classic cigarette because it is dirty and ashy. I added Black fire for that smoky flavor and DNB for the ash tray flavor. Vanilla because you do feel a hint of vanilla, small but present on Malrboro, it provides a very very light accent. Fa Bitter Wizard to lower the sweetness from the VG.
When I decided to quit smoking it was because I didn't like the taste, but still appreciated a good cigar. In La Palma (Canary Islands) they grow great leaves!
This is what I tried, and without steeping it is a great Cuban Cigar base, aiming to be amplified with some vanilla, or honey.
Gold for Pipe (INW) bring necessary sweetness, Absolute Cuban Cigar (INW) the basic spice and Absolute Garuda (INW) the leafy part.
Will mess it up with a vanilla base, when I get to one I like (vanillas are playing hard, or I am just too picky!)
Went through 3 versions of this, landing at this one. I like my tobacco vapes pretty strong, so give this one a 2 week steep before you try it. I have mixed dozens of "cuban cigar" recipes and nothing tastes like them like mine does.
If other cuban cigar recipes have you longing for more punch, look no further.
Triple punch of shade, fire, and DNB give it the bitterness needed for tobacco vapes, and the dual cuban flavors give it the richness. AP and BR smooth out the top notes and add some subtle sweetness.
Needs at least a week to really bloom. A few drops of mts vape wizard can help round and blend the flavors if you don't want to cut the sweetness with bitter wizard.
Menthol is very light. Mix at 0.4-0.5% or add 0.5% spearmint for more of a menthol cig flavor
Depending on how sweet your VG is the bitter wizard may need to be increased. Using Essential Depot Palm VG I had to up it to 2% to cut the sweetness enough.
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

Ever since I filtered and mixed up my Mac Baren HH Old Dark Fired NET, I knew that Kentucky was going to hold a special place in my tongue’s heart. One of the things that really jumped out at me was an almost smoky BBQ flavor. It was very familiar.
INW Smooth Leaf tastes pretty spot on, but it’s really tricky to work with. Too little, it’s lost. Too much, it gets a bit too BBQ sauce-ish. It’s very bold and in your face, but also brings this strange mouth feel along with it. When I first tested it and tried playing around with it, I decided pretty quickly it was going to be one of those “never use” flavors. Then I decided to try to make an accurate Kentucky Tobacco, which pretty much forced me in to finding a spot for it.
I threw a little FA Black Fire in there to give it a bit more of a “Fire Cured” vibe. This brought along more top notes than I really wanted, so I tried to tone those down with some INW DNB.
I usually suggest using DNB at whatever percent you’re comfortable with, but in this one it’s less of a condiment and has a bit more of a vital role, so keep it at .5%.
The base here is a combo of FLV Kentucky and FR Woody Tobacco. The Flavor Revolution tobaccos are actually pretty damn good. I used Woody because I wanted it a little earthier and there’s a hint of some smoky wood in there. FLV Kentucky giving a bit of body and punch.
This is one of those recipes that probably not a lot of people will be able to mix up because FR Woody Tobacco is only available at Nicotine River, and they don’t seem to be too popular, and INW Smooth Leaf isn’t sold anywhere that I’ve seen in the US. But I could have made it easy to make, or I could have made it as authentic as I could. I went with the latter.
