Smooth and buttery Bourbon Custard with toasted almond and sweet coconut notes.
Could've called it Cotto's Revenge Bourbon Custard Remix as its truely based on all those 2015-16 clones that were running around about that eliquid back in the day.
It was a very smooth custard with the same notes i love from castle long, the toasted almond, coconut and Bourbon.
In this recipe i just changed the coconut and tweaked the precenteges to nowadays DIY Mixing needs.
This mix started out as a bourbon cream and ended up with us pouring some of your granddad’s “special drink” into a McDonald’s chocolate shake (on those rare occasions where their ice cream machine is actually working).
This mix was a collaboration between @Foment_Life and I on the DIY eJuice Discord
The first draft was 3% Bavarian Cream, 2.5% TFA Kentucky Bourbon, .1% FLV Rich Cinnamon, 1% FA Madagascar (Vanilla Classic), 2% VT Chocolate Mousse, and 1.5% TFA Marshmallow (but we both “oopsied” the marshmallow to about 1.8%).
We agreed that it already pretty much tasted like a McDonald’s shake, but wasn’t really what we were going for. We threw around a few ideas, and eventually landed on TFA Toasted Almond at 1.5%. This ended up adding a nice bit of smokiness that really helped sell the bourbon that was lacking a bit. The only problem, and maybe it was because I was dehydrated, but the mix started making my mouth super dry. We decided to let it sit a few days and see if the cream thickens up and helps out with the dryness.
A few people tested it out for us and really seemed to enjoy it, but we still thought it could be improved. We tried it after a few days steep and the cream really helped moisten the mix up. The dryness issue was pretty much eliminated. Really, the only thing that we thought could be improved was the bourbon. Unfortunately, I only had TFA Kentucky Bourbon to work with, but we both agreed that FLV Bourbon would be a good fit after Foment described it as a more woody/smokey bourbon than TFA Kentucky Bourbon. So Foment mixed up the new bottle and thought that was it. I added the FLV Bourbon to my cart, mixed it up, and fell in love.
TFA Marshmallow, TFA Bavarian Cream, and VT Chocolate Mousse make up our chocolate milkshake base.
FA Madagascar (Vanilla Classic) is there to help bolster and add some richness to the chocolate.
TFA Kentucky Bourbon and FLV Bourbon are the secret ingredient.
And last but not least, the FLV Rich Cinnamon and TFA Toasted Almond are there to add some extra smokiness and spice to the booze.
Nothing is going to taste bad if you vape this early, however it does take about 7-10 days to reach its peak.
Originally I wanted to make a coconut custard/pudding but after tinkering around with the recipe I felt the chocolate element turned this into something truly delicious. If your a fan of these 2 flavours I really do recommend you give this one a go,I’m really happy with it thus far. You can S&V this sucker but naturally it will only get better and better. Please rate my recipe and leave a review for the world to see. Happy mixing 😀💙
A Milk and Honey inspired remix... for old times' sake.
It's an overdone profile (graham cracker, banana and some nut flavouring) but I wanted to have another bash at remixing Milk and Honey. This one is more of a M & H inspired juice than a clone but still manages to scratch that itch.
Toasted Almond is the main nut flavour I get from M & H. Not so sure I get peanut butter, which didn't taste right when used. 1% TFA Toasted Almond provides a subtle almond background and a toasted top-note.
To my tastebuds at least, the key to M & H's profile is TFA Bananas Foster. It's creamy with subtle banana, caramel and spice notes. However, it lacks body and can get lost in a mix so was boosted with 1.25% TFA Banana Nut Bread, which adds more body and complex sweetness. This also helps it stand up to CAP Graham.Cracker V2 which would otherwise overpower everything.
1% CAP Graham Cracker 2 accents the recipe with a biscuit texture and adds holiday spice and molasses notes. It's far more complex and nuanced than CAP Graham Cracker 1 which is a plain cinnamon cracker so don't sub it out.
The hardest part in developing this recipe was finding a cream that could blend without interfering with the overall profile. However, a bit of help came from the much maligned yet overlooked, CAP VC 2. It may be unpleasant at higher percentages but at lower percentages it's an amazing blending cream which adds body without interfering with the overall flavour.
Usually M & H remixes contain Marshmallow but there's already plenty of ethyl maltol sweetness coming from the banana ingredients used. Also, whenever I did use marshmallow, it muddled up the profile.
FW Sweetener provides a necessary sucralose boost at 1%
Nice as a S&V but 3 days recommended.
Ok so I mixed this up in the DIY_eJuice discord in collaboration is @Isuamadog. There is a need for a sweet creamy base which where FLV cream comes into play for the creaminess, but to water it down a bit and add more sugar FLV Milk & honey was introduced. Combine this with the sweet rice and you have that silky rice with a touch a touch of pistachio cream topped with toasted almonds. The pistachios play really nicely with the almond. Enjoy!
This is the same recipe I have shared on ELR. It has been a looooooong time since I had the original, but using memory and community input, this is a close clone (and very similar to the One-Shot Django's bounty sold by ECX)
I've subbed the TPA cinnamon spice out for RF Cinnamon Roll – SC @ 1% with good results.
Touching base with an old friend recently, he expressed his long love affair with Castle Long. It was an old profile that I hadn't visited in a very long time. Being who I am I couldn't resist a take on the old versions we've all tried and try to do something a bit bigger and a bit bolder with it.
The Coconut: While I'm fairly positive the original used TPA Coconut Extra, I feel like it goes too quickly to hand lotion without a ridiculously long steep, and it's just less forgiving. TPA Coconut Candy is creamier, sweeter, and frankly just better all around IMO. At 5% it's bold, bright, and doesn't fade behind the wall of other stuff we got going on here.
The Almond: It's two parts here, with TPA Toasted Almond leading the way, with some CAP Cereal 27 to back up the nutty background while also giving a faint bit of grain. The grain texture also serves to boost up the Red Oak in our Bourbon Layer
The Bourbon: TPA Kentucky Bourbon is still the most buildable bourbon on the market to me. At 2.5% it's plenty bold enough to come all the way through, with a little FA Whisky to give a fair bit of peaty bite to the top end. TPA Red Oak helps it hit those woody notes
The finisher: TPA Vanilla Swirl gives us a mild body at 1.5% and a fairly bright vanilla. Along with a healthy splash of TPA Brown Sugar we get a rounded sweetness without too much extra heavy background.
I hope you all enjoy this as much as I enjoyed creating it! Cheers!
