I've made an alternate version of this using ID10-T 's suggestions from his review. Removed the WF pistachio, upped TFA to 3.5% and upped Holy Grail to 7%. Give it a try. It definitely upped the sweetness a bit with more caramel coming through from the Holy Grail. I wont be changing this original recipe though as I worked pretty hard on it and I still think it's great as is. Both versions are worth vaping to me 👍🏻
This came about from 2 things: My love of Charlie Noble's Pistachio RY4 , and my newfound love for Fear's Cardinal
Charlie Noble Pistschio RY4 was my first ADV. I loved it. When I started mixing I was stoked to find DiYorDie had a somewhat close clone of it. His one shot was my first foray into mixing. So this profile holds a special place for me.
Fast forward a couple years and I haven't messed with tobacco's much for some time now. Then do to popular reviews I finally pick up holy holy RY4 and some Flavorah Tobaccos , and try Cardinal. Blown away. Freaking delicious.
So now comes this, not quite a straight up Pistachio Cardinal, and not quite PRY4 with holy holy ry4 subbed. More of an inspired by both greats situation.
I started with just TPA Pistachio but then I found WF Pistachio Cream pairs really nicely with TPA while giving it a bit more of a sweet, slightly creamy vibe so I added that.
I've been wanting a way to use Vanilla Bourbon but it just doesnt fit in most applications but here it pairs nicely with the tobacco and nutty notes
As far as the tobacco, I love the way that Red Burley pairs with and adds more to the tobacco notes of the holy grail ry4
Lastly , I added hazelnut. It helps a tiny bit with the nuttiness but mostly it just adds a nice subtle sweetness to the mix.
Enjoy this full flavored, heavy "sticky" caramel Pistachio RY4
You MUST use Health Cabin Caramel for this mix. It is the only sticky caramel on the market(imho) currently & is a perfect mate for TFA Double RY4! No ifs, ands, or buts!!!!
TFA Toasted Marshmallow adds a great toasted tobacco' nuance. TFA Red Oak...what can I say? It adds the perfect woody aftertaste that most RY4s lack. No extra vanilla flavoring was needed here, as TFA Double RY4 has that covered! CAP Sugar Cookie adds sweetness, as well as helping the TFA Pistachio with that roasted feel I was looking for.
2 week steep recommended
If you prefer your RY4 sweeter, you can bump up the EM to 0.75-1%

Anise cookie is a traditional sicilian (Italy) cookie. It has a well cooked body, not too sweet, and the refreshing flavor of anise. We use it with red wine for dessert (like Marsala wine). I grove up with this cookie (without wine, of course).
For the cookie, after many trials, I find the perfect combo with an high 2.5% of FA cookie and a 1.5% of JF cookie.
FW pie crust work well to give a brown, hard crust to the cookie.
Golden butter essentially make a wet contrast to the dry biscuit base.
FA Anise is a strong, violent, flavor. So, even if it is the profile of this recipe, you can not use more then 0.75%.
TPA Pistachio at 0.5% is the perfect husband for the marriage with anise in order to give a nutty constituency to the recipe.
One of my favorite desserts growing up has always been that green bowl of fluff. I had no idea what it was actually called until I got older and went in search of the recipe. As soon as I smelled the bottle of TPA-Pistachio it took me back and I knew exactly what I wanted to recreate. I used the TPA-Pistachio along with FLV-Vanilla Pudding to create my pistachio pudding base. Then I used the OOO-Cream Milky Undertone along with the OOO Marshmallow (Vanilla) to add in the whipped topping and marshmallows. Naturally I had to throw in a bit of INW-Pineapple to keep it authentic. I am still going to try one more version with FLV-Pineapple instead of INW and a bit of FW-Butter Pecan. If I like it even more I will come back and update this. This is better after 3 days but the best flavor is before the 2-3 week mark IMO. Some of the nuances start to blend in together if it steeps for too long. Smaller batches would be better for this one.
