In a slightly intoxicated state on night, I figured a strawberry cigarette was a good idea.
When I woke up the next morning, I realized it WAS a good idea. This is a simple mix that somehow has loads of complexity. Notes below.
FLV Kentucky Blend/FLV Virginia Tobacco - After months of testing different tobaccos to create IPA Smoke, I realized that these two work really well together to create a pseudo-cigarette profile. The Kentucky Blend is earthy, dark, dirty, and deep. It has smokey notes in it, some subtle sweetness, but overall, it's just a delicious dark pipe tobacco that really gives some "ash" on the back end after a few days of steeping. Virginia Tobacco, is light and dry. It has more of that light cigarette tobacco feel to it. There's some bitterness that plays really nicely with the sweetness of Kentucky Blend. In this mix, using Virginia Tobacco at a higher percentage helps fight the overt sweetness we get from the strawberry and brown sugar. Back in college, I made a friend that rolled his own cigarettes using a blend of cherry pipe tobacco with some full bodied cigarette tobacco. I fell in love with those smokes. To me, the mix of FLV Kentucky Blend with FLV Virginia Tobacco is almost a perfect emulation of those cigarettes I used to bum from him.
INW Shisha Strawberry/TPA Brown Sugar - When working with profiles like tobaccos, custards, ice creams, etc, I've found that INW Shisha Strawberry works incredibly well. I typically rock the FA Strawberry/CAP Sweet Strawberry combination when I'm creating full fruit profiles. But in this mix, using that combination was pretty disgusting. Which isn't too surprising. Who wants a candied strawberry profile with a dirty cigarette? Probably no one. Or maybe a fucking coward. Who knows. But with INW Shisha Strawberry, we get a nice blend of a deep, slightly overripe, authentic strawberry with a touch of sweetness. I've read before that mixing INW Shisha Strawberry with things like caramel and dark sugar doesn't really work. While that may be true for typical application, we can see that this is not your standard strawberry recipe. In this, the addition of TPA Brown Sugar not only amplifies the nuances within the tobaccos, but also nearly exaggerates the overripe sweetness of the strawberry.
Shake and vape is definitely good, but after 3 days, the strawberries and tobaccos blend together into something special. Before the steep, the two stay fairly separate, but after a few days, they meld together and we get, truly, a strawberry cigarette.
This is a weird profile, I admit. It's strange, not an ADV by any stretch of the imagination. However, I find myself constantly wanting it for a few hits. It's really odd, really tasty, and a good way for ya boy to start off 2019.
Go donate and happy celebrations to everyone !
The oatmeal bar is based on TFA Oatmeal Cookie and INW Biscuit.
The richness of the bakery comes from TFA Brown Sugar, FA Maple Syrup and CAP Golden Butter.
The Cranberry is built around FLV Cranberry and CAP Grapefruit for the red and vibrant fruit, FA Blackcurrant for the jam texture and darkness of baked fruit.
And FLV Sweet Coconut you ask? It's a very neat trick to smooth out too sharp edges and round a recipe.
I wanted a nice warm, subtly spiced apple cider. I could drink those little cider packets by the gallon during the winter. I find that most "jug" cider has a metallic taste so I usually prefer the packets unless I open up the wallet for the really good pressed cider.
Hangsen Apple Mix is my new favorite concentrate for apple cider mixes. It's a little artificial so I add some crisp authentic apple with FA Fuji. The liquid amber turns them both a little more towards cooked and adds some depth and warmth.
TFA Brown Sugar is here to mingle with the inherent darkness in Liquid Amber and turn it a bit sweet and slightly caramelized.
The obvious choice for cinnamon is the king, FLV Rich Cinnamon. I use it super low here so it doesn't take over the mix and just accents it.
The Apple Mix, Fuji and Rich Cinnamon together can go a bit in the dry direction so I'm boosting the juiciness with FA Pear. It also adds just a little depth to the apple.
I like a little orange zest simmered with my warm spiced apple cider. It brightens up the apples and accents the cinnamon really well. I chose FW Tangerine because it's a subtle sweet tangerine that doesn't bully other flavors. It does the job of brightening this mix without being obvious.
This is good shake and vape but give it an overnight steep to get really saturated flavor.
Note! To be able to save recipe , i had to choose a different type and vendor for alcohol.
This recipe is originally used with Bolsjehuset Rom. OOO Bourbon Whiskey is not what i use , but might be subbed and maby at a different %
After trying to get a good irish cream with mixed results , i figured i make something new.
To simulate drinking coffee trough cream , i used Cap Vanilla Custard V2 , and TPA Bavarian Cream.
Since the original used brown sugar , my choice was TPA brown sugar(the only one i had).
FA Capouccino at 1.2% leaves the coffee at a softer spot , without hiding the cream and alcohol.
This is my first recipe , so show mercy :)
Also i am still working on it with other creams , so i will update when/if it changes to the better.
Also i airsteep abit because alcohol.
Ahoy! 'tis me latest collaborative project, 'n I had th' pleasure o' workin' wit' a true gentleman 'n a scholar t' get it nailed down. Cap'n Burgundy 'n I 'ave been tryin' out numerous concepts, from th' enigma o' FA Breakfast Cereals t' th' cereal destroyin' FW Hazelnut. Thar were some moments o' pure joy, 'n some moments o' sheer terror (lookin' at ye Fizzy Sherbet). Let's walk th' plank.
FLV Cream 'n OOO Cream/Milky Undertones make up th' cream base fer th' cereal, 'n aye that's all ye needs. FLV Cream be easily one o' me fav'rit flavors, 'tis an awesome cream that I still can nah describe. OOO Cream/Milky Undertones adds some, ye guessed it, milky undertones t' th' vape without bullyin' th' cereal too much. Movin' onto th' yellow, mouth-destroyin' loot pieces. FA Cookie adds some separation from th' cream base 'n all-around great texture t' th' cereal. Cereal 27 be wha' makes up th' yellow puffed corn bits, 'n gives a general "cereal" quality. Brown Sugar was Cap'n Burgundy's trick, hijacked from Breakfast Bowls #1. It adds some dark sweetness 'n makes th' Captain Crunch mighty tasty.
Now 'tis me time t' shine. When we started this adventure, I was in charge o' findin' a TPA Crunchy Berry Soap substitute. In th' words o' th' cap'n hisself, "I bloodhounded it, 'n when ye try it ye'll say, 'That Alfred sure knows wha' he's doin' wit' his schnozz.'" Forest Fruit be th' answer t' th' crunch berry pieces, 'n wit' some brightenin' from Strawberry (ripe) 'n Super Sweet, it beats TPA Crunchy Berry Cereal by nigh-on half a league.
The cooler months have FINALLY arrived! It's bakery season!! A day off from real life work has afforded me the opportunity to drop this beauty. This is my rendition of a Crock Pot Butterscotch Apple Pudding Crisp, a favorite of mine at family holiday get togethers.
FLV Apple Filling This ingredient provides a solid cinnamon with a light apple jelly texture.
FA Fuji Used to boost the lack of apple brought to the party with FLV's Apple Filling.
FLV Vanilla Pudding Accurate implementation of vanilla pudding, if but a little light in the thick department. Needs a little help in the vanilla department but it's very creamy after a good steep,
INW Custard Included in the final version to tie in the egg to the bread and slightly enhance the vanilla note and creamy body.
FW Butterscotch Ripple Just a dash to contribute to the rich profile and overall sweetness.
WF Deep Fried Pastry Dough Just a dash of breadiness to help with the "crumb" note.
TPA Brown Sugar An important element to the real life recipe, I felt it's inclusion would benefit this mix. Turns out, I was right. It adds a richness to the profile.
Steep Time: Important to note, this recipe is a steeper. Emulsification is going to be your friend with this mix.
