A Vanilla Custard Caramel Tobacco recipe that worked out great!
Starting with the vanilla custard base, INW Custard + CAP Vanilla Custard + TPA Vanilla Swirl complement each other to create a staple vanilla custard. Adding TPA French Vanilla Creme and TPA French Vanilla Deluxe on a 1:1 ratio, add both the extra vanilla needed and bring a second layer of delicate creaminess along.
TPA Western is the way to go for the VCT profile, and adding just a little INW US Red Mix makes this recipe different from other VCTs, bringing a different dimension to the leathery american tobacco notes.
Finally, RY4 is added for the needed maltol and also as a bridge to the VT Honeycomb, creating a nice butterscoth note.
Give it at least 6-7 days of steeping to develop!
P.S. INW US Red Mix could be ommited, but if you have it or have easy access to it I really recommend you to give it a try.
Mezcla aromática de las mejores hojas de tabaco Arabica, Virginia y de base el delicioso RY4, el alma de esta receta está inspirada en el apreciado American Luxury, pero aquí se acentúa más la nueva incorporación del potente sabor del tabaco Arabica, acompañado del fragante aroma del tabaco Virginia y dejando en un segundo plano el caramelo, la galleta y el aromático café Arabica.

Total Flavouring: 16%
Steep Time: 4+ Weeks
Pairs well with ales, stouts and dark beers, from complimenting flavours.
RY4 Double (TPA):
One of the sweeter tobacco's flavours with notes of caramel and vanilla. It's slightly earthy, nutty, a tad smokey, and just a great mellow tobacco flavour. Can be a bit dry on the exhale but we can balance that out.
Very spot on butterscotch taste, although it's not very creamy nor is it very sweet. The use of the additional caramel's add to the body and depth of the butterscotch profile. At 3% it's presence is unmistakable.
Brown Sugar (TPA):
Used mainly for it's sweetness but also for it's similar compounds that help boost the existing caramel and butterscotch notes.
Vanilla Custard (CAP):
I have tried using other custards, (FA, TPA, FLV) and although each were good, they just... well aren't CAP's vanilla custard. I have a hard time not resorting to using CAP's v1 but at least I gave it a shot. It's buttery, very rich, creamy, tasty and just works so well here. It's really the body, the backbone of this recipe, but can easily be swapped out for a different custard profile. Although, I don't suggest it.
Acetyl Pirazine (TPA):
Is used to round out the tobacco and increase it's roasted and nutty profile.
Talking with Eric Buss (Squid Vapor LLC), he mentioned a savory custard tobacco, and that got me thinking of a brew. So this is my tribute to him for all he does for the community.
Let this one steep 7 days minimum for the custard to settle into the mix.
(Cap) Vanilla Custard - The main custard note.
(TPA) Pecan - Added for that savory nutty note to compliment and take a little of the sweetness off of the RY4. I initially thought of using (TPA) Pistachio, but I thought that may make the recipe too much like Wayne Walker's Stacio-RY4-U with a hint of pipe tobacco added.
(TPA) RY4 Double - Used here for that caramel tobacco note. I started at 3.25%, but it was too far forward. This version is dialed back to 2% with the (FE) Captain bumped up from 2.25% to 3.5%
(FE) Captain - (Using ECX's description) sweet pipe tobacco flavor with hints of maple and coconut. I needed to round out the tobacco with a nice pipe blend, and I really enjoy FE Captain.
(FE) Tobacco Absolute - Added to "dirty" up the tobacco and round off the edges of the coconut, maple and caramel notes from the Captain and RY4 Double.
Peanut Butter Banana Tobacco
Thought of a Banana RY4 dessert style tobacco so i went trying the classic ry4's, butterscotch and caramel but found TPA's Peanut Butter screaming at my face so here it is.
TPA Peanut Butter Is a great peanut butter with some flaws but here does his job perfectly. Adds a bit of butter to the mix as well as a chocolaty note that goes really well with bananas.
TPA Banana Cream was another obvious choice for me i love it and its so easy to use, has good creaminess at 3% and the banana is exactly were i wanted it.
TPA Ry4 Double ok.. i wanted an ry4 and went with the classic, at 3% adds a bit of tobacco like note with caramel.
FLV Caramel is more of a brown sugar than a caramel at 0.5% helps the caramel from Ry4 to get deeper and adds that brown sugar sweetness to everything.
Finally FLV Red Burley is my favourite flavorah tobacco, and in this case helps giving the recipe a slight tobacco note without having to steep the ry4 for 2-3 weeks, wich was one of my goals for this recipe. Has some nuttiness that plays awsamely well with peanut butter and a slight frutiness that goes nicely with banana, (Red Burley is aswame)
I let it sit for 3 days but after a week or so it gets better.
The more you let it the better it gets.
