I really like layered vape recipes and I try to create at least 1 a month with this being the recipe for the my month.. This is my rendition of something I had seen when I first started to D.I.Y. and I have struggled with in the beginning and I think I have the right amount of everything for the correct tastes so what better then the best of 2 worlds.. Banana Nut Bread with Strawberry Cheesecake combined into one hell of a vape.. Slight coconut hint with the right cream and vanilla.
*Optional... substitute CAP Graham Cracker for 1% VT Honeycomb
Sweet tobacco with a hint of banana. Good shake and vape.
A tribute to Lazarus Vintage Journey. “Rolled in cognac and glazed with buttermilk, this warm and sweet flavor is reserved for only the most exclusive cigars of the world. Master Chef Bruce has emboldened the essence of this flavor into a stately and smooth aromatic flavor that amazes and inspires all who taste the wealth of the Journey experience.” There’s no mention of banana there, but from reviews I gather that there is a bit of banana in there.
I have not tried the original, but created this based off of the description and reviews, and it ended up being pretty delicious. Not so much a tobacco flavor, but it’s good.
A note on FE Cigar and TFA RY4 Double: this is a really good combo. A few commercial juices I have tried taste like they are using this combo. The Cigar seems to fix up the RY4 Double and make it really pop. There’s a few RY4 recipes I’ve been playing with lately that I’m using this combo in, and it’s really good. The ratio used here is around where I like to keep them.
INW Brandy has been discontinued, but FA Brandy works just the same.
Inspired by Fear's Cardinal (a cardinal is a Prince of the Church) crossed with Bigglesworth's Prairie/Grizzly Vapes' Nanner Bear (prairie = the Great Plains). Throw in a little FLV Tatanka Tobacco (tatanka is a Lakota, a Great Plains Native American tribe, word referring to the buffalo) mixed with some creamy, custard, and we have The Prince of the Great Plains.
The Cardinal inspiration - DFS Holy Grail RY4 (4%) and FLV Red Burley (0.5%). The original Cardinal (https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/24962#cardinal_by_fear . . . which is outstanding) was 8% Holy Grail RY4 and 0.75% Red Burley with 0.25% FLV Kentucky Blend. I cut the Holy Grail in half to make room for DK Tobacco from Prairie . . . lowered Red Burley to 0.5% and switched Kentucky Blend out with Tatanka (bumping the percentage up to 0.5%) Tatanka really adds to the nutty, caramel vibe, which steers this even father away from a tobacco and more towards a dessert.
The Prairie/Nanner Bear inspiration - /u/project_twenty5oh1's Nanner Bear clone, which became Prairie (see edit below) was a revelation when I first tried it. So earthy and different from most of the other commercial juices I'd tried (with the exception of Grizzly's Nanner Bear). I subbed out TFA Peanut Butter in favor of TFA Toasted Almond (1%) for the nutty aspect of Prairie. I kept TFA Banana Cream and Banana Nut Bread but dropped them to 1% each (as opposed to the original percentages 5 and 3, respectively). The flavor that really sets Prairie (and I assume Nanner Bear not knowing the recipe) apart is TFA DK Tobacco Base. It's odd and earthy but not necessarily what I think of when I think of tobacco. However, it is delicious nonetheless and necessary, in my opinion. I dropped it from 6% to 3% to make room for the Holy Grail RY4.
Because this is a dessert, I wanted to wrap it all up with a custard. I went with CC Devon Cream (1%) and INW Custard (1.5%) to smooth out the base of the custard. The TFA Banana Cream also plays nice with the custards/creams. INW Custard is an instantly vapable custard, but I'm intersted to see how/if this changes with a steep.
With that being said, I mixed up a 10mL tester of this at 60vg40pg and have plowed through about half of the bottle dripping it in my Hadaly clone . . . so it is definitely a SNV. It checks all of the boxes I was hoping for: a creamy, nutty caramel custard with notes of banana and the earthiness of tobacco floating around in it. When I finish this bottle, I plan on throwing some FA Polar Blast at it and, possibly, a drop or two of Axiom's Icicles to complete that ode to Bigglesworth/Grizzly Vapes. I think it will play well with the caramel aspect based on how much I loved BDY's K2, a Canadian juice that was a caramel-vanilla tobacco with a kiss of icy menthol. I'll also mix up a larger batch of this recipe by itself and see how it steeps, as this tester will not see tomorrow. I will update when I figure it all out.

Quick and simple Banana Nut bread Covered in peanut butter.
Banana Nut Bread Is the main profile and using a little bit of vanilla cupcake helps to fluff it up
Banana cream accentuates the banana flavor and adding creaminess to the peanut butter
GCC helps to sweeten up the recipe a bit without providing the cookie feeling.
CDS gives it a nice twist from regular banana nut bread
