I've gone through over 6 completely different concentrate constellations tackling this flavour profile. This is what I've narrowed it down to, at least given the flavours I have in my arsenal. I am craving Yig with a nice cold beer so badly and have renewed motivation to get this dialed.
The Blackcurrant element:
FA Blackcurrant is the star of the currants in my opinion. It's extremely close to the one if not the same one used in Yig. On its own it's a bit dry...
In comes FA Pazzo RE aka King, this is one of my favourite flavours from the newer FA lineup. It's the blackcurrant/raspberry gummy candy with some sugar coating. It adds some body to the currant note, I want it to almost be syrupy and this seems to go in the right direction.
The Cookie element:
On to the Oatmeal Cookie aspect. I unfortunately only own one "Oatmeal" flavour and that is TPA Oatmeal Cookie. I have not had much success using this flavour initially but through much research. Reading any notes I could on this flavour it's getting easier. It's a flavour that needs help, a lot of it. It does however contain that certain something I presume required to imitate Yig.
To balance it out and shake off some of the Oatmeal Cookie off notes I've added FA Meringue to mellow it out, bring some air and sweetness into the mix. I've also added CAP Golden Butter because every cookie/custard can't stand without it. INW Biscuit also gives it that buttery goodness as well as some vanilla cookie body. Last but not least some FW Butterscotch Ripple, mainly because the first time I mixed it up to test solo it had so many notes that got me reminiscing of Yig. I think it will also add that caramelized note that is the best part of a oatmeal cookie, those crunchy caramelized edges.
I never got too much custard when vaping Yig so I decided on something lighter like TPA Vanilla Swirl along with some sweetener of your choosing and that's what I've got thus far.
I mixed this variation up a week ago and smell test is a big positive. It smells like yig to me, possibly have to go up a little with the currants but on the knuckle test the currants come through very well. I think it just needs more time steeping.
Any criticism and or input would be greatly appreciated. Now that Namberjuice has closed their doors I have this burning desire to get this right finally and would appreciate any help.
One love and keep on vaping!

This is DMC's final released version of Boba's Bounty. While the first mix was there but not quit what I was looking for. I feel it was missing some sweetness and overall bakery profile from the OG Boba's In v1. I still seemed to get to much of the leather from the Arabian tobacco after a few days of steep. It was still in the middle where I wanted it but it was still playing to much of a dominate rule. Dropping it down to .15% seems to do the trick just giving that accent I need but by doing this the raisin profile was there but still needed a lift. Trying different types of bakeries starting with Capellas sugar cookie seemed to get the job done but was lacking the sweetness and raisin. It works but had limitations maybe even causing some muting or over taking the mix it was okay but I felt we can do better. So off to graham cracker. It was a no go for us. The graham cracker for me at least was not playing nice and seemed to clash and cause overall muting and overtaking the whole profile. Then Blackmamba reminded me of the oatmeal granola notes that I seem to pick up from the og profile. Milk and honey? for me yes but still seems to fall short. Pushing milk and honey? Well if you have worked with it you know it can be a dominate one that likes to be the star when pushed and that's not what we want. So Tpa oatmeal cookie hmmm... Wait did he say oatmeal. YES! YES! and YES!!! This one was is weird I know!!! Starting at suggested 1.5% from mamba I knew it was going to be to high but what the hay.. So yeah 1.5% was to high and had to much of the oatmeal profile and was distracting the tobacco notes. It had that sweetness, bakery and tricking your palate into to thinking there is raisin in there while overall boosting the raisin notes from the Arabian. Now don't get me wrong 1.5% is a pleasant vape but it was boba's oatmeal instead of bounty. Playing with percentages knocking it down to 0.5% balanced it self out tying the whole recipe together giving you a pretty accurate profile of boba"s. Granted Clones are not 100% dead on but we feel if you are a boba's fan this will sure fill that void. Enjoy!!!!! https://youtu.be/BVmnajUXIso
Razzleberry, Boysenberry for the fruity aspect
Oatmeal cookie,Cheesecake Graham Crust for the bakery bottom

TFA Bavarian Cream to emulsify the fruit and push it into the cream

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.
Peanut butter sugar cookie with oatey notes.
The peanut butters play well with the cookie butter which darkens and deepens that note into the cookie base made of the oatmeal cookie and sugar cookie. the A.P. adds some more texture and the whipped marshmallow lends sweetness and pillow to the overall mix.
I never got on board the cereal hype train, I mixed plenty of top recipes, but they just weren't to my taste. I ordered Capella Blueberry Cinnamon Crumble simply out of interest. It turns out it was very pleasing to my palate, and hopefully yours. I went into overdrive thinking of cereal and grain combinations to add to it. I prefer yogurt with my oats/muesli, so feel free to remove the yogurts and creams and use your favorite milk base instead.
As a shake and vape it's pleasant, but the longer you can wait, the more it deepens. the blueberry's are always a back note, but they linger on the palate nicely. This combination of creams and yogurts are perfect for me in this mix. Enjoy!
