My initial mix up of this week's recipe turned out poorly so I had to remix it without getting the benefit of a few weeks of steeping like the first version got. This has been steeping now for 8 days, and has turned out lovely and was actually pretty good off the shake, though the creamy flavors have started to shine through now that it has had a bit of steep time. I would say this needs about 2 weeks steeping, maybe 3 to be fully stabilized, but if you're a mix and shake vaper this will work, but maybe mix up a big bottle or a second batch to allow one to steep as well.
The ice cream layer in this recipe is made up of Delosi's Vanilla Cream and FA Vienna Cream. These creams are actually DAAP free, so I did have to use a few other ingredients to DAAP it up a bit for you DAAP lovers. The FLV Cream adds a bit of Diacetyl, and the WF Caramel Butter definitely has some level of DAAP in it that adds to the overall thickness of the ice cream flavor. The Caramel is meant to be mixed into the ice cream, as it is a caramel ice cream so there shouldn't be much in the way of separation in these layers, but should be blended all into one.
Aged Bourbon Cream is the drizzle that tops this ice cream, as I thought it would be something a bit different and contrasting to the caramel notes. And instead of adding yet another cream to add to the whipped cream layer, I just kind of ignored the whipped cream as I felt it would get lost in the ice cream notes. I used FA Nut Mix over the other types of nuts because I know this flavor gives a good slight nut note when used at a low percentage and it wouldn't overpower the other flavors making it a nut ice cream rather than just a topping. Since I had poor results trying to get a toffee pecan type of note in the first attempt, I just settled for a hint of nut to go in there.
Normally,i only buy some snv's from time to time,created by mixers i respect, only to support the diy community.This project was a request from a friend and i just couldn't refuse.Butterscotch reserve by Glas vapor,is a typical RY4 mix,nothing really innovative,it was created for people that enjoy RY4 mixes.The only difference is that they added a honey and alcohol layer,which makes it a little difficult to identify the exact vanilla and caramel flavours.I believe that honey flavour is tobacco based so i went with tpa's Black Honey.The bourbon accent is not really heavy,it is hidden in the background,so i preffered Aged bourbon cream by RF,for the alcohol accent and also for the nice blend it does with other creams.French vanilla is softer and milder than custards and it blends well with tobaccos.RY4double was the obvious flavour for the main tobacco.My first attempt was with tpa's caramel original,but i feel that fw's butterscotch suits much better
Supersweet is optional,i vape it without it,but the original uses it,so mix according to your taste
This is a Maple Bourbon Custard
For the Maple Bourbon I used some FA Maple Syrup, RF Bourbon Cream & FA Vanilla Bourbon.
For the custard I layered/threw together a bunch of different creams. The main ones are the INW Custard & OOO Vanilla Custard Cheesecake. The OOO Creme Brulee is used for some toasted sweetness & I added a drop of FA Torrone to thicken the cream up some more.
PLEASE RATE & REVIEW IF YOU MIX
I got the inspiration for this recipe from a truckstop coffee currently being offered. I have never bought the coffee but it sounded good so I went for it. No need to worry about the boosy note in this recipe as the bourbon is very light after the steep and blends nicely with the butter pecan and and coffee. This needs 5-7 days to steep. I get butter pecan/caramel/cream on the inhale that transitions smoothly to a creamy coffee on the exhale.
SM Italian Roast.... Stixx Mixx concentrates are ready to use presteeped flavors. I find this to be a medium roast black coffee...not bitter just a very clean coffee flavor. I prefer this concentrate between 5-6% but i believe you could take it higher without any off notes...just stronger more in your face coffee.
RF Aged Bourbon Cream.....While this does have a distinct bourbon note after the steep is becomes subdued somewhat by the cream and caramel that emerges.. This flavor needs around five days to steep although it can be shake and vape if you don't mind the bourbon.
OOO Butter Pecan Ice Cream....light butter pecan with a lot of cream...at this percentage i get no off notes in it at all but i find the Pecan note light.
FW Butter Pecan...not much i can add about this flavor...its good...feel free to substitute OOO Butter Pecan if that is you prefered flavor.
FA Vanilla Bourbon....Enough said...LOL
Cream and cookies by flavorah is a nice oreo flavor,with hints of chocolate and cream,but lacks of texture and body.So,i used biscuit base from vta to enhance the bakery side and added the two vanilla creams to improve the texture.Aged bourbon cream by rf,compliments the creams adds body to the mix and also a slight taste of alcohol.The mix needs 10 days steeping,mostly because of vta's biscuit base.
