**Copied from "Applewood Butterscotch Tobacco" By johnmakesthings**
Increased the turkish a bit
A smokey Applewood on the inhale, followed by a thick Butterscotch on the exhale, with a dry Turkish blend throughout.
FW Butterscotch Natural 5%: Provides a broad sweetness and contributes to the mouth-feel. Most of the butterscotch flavor is on the exhale. Heavy presence in the aroma. NOTE: This mix uses the "Natural" variant or FW's Butterscotch, which is not as sharp and can be used at a higher percentage without imparting an off-taste.
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl: 0.5% is just enough to bring a spicy complexity.
FA Desert Ship Blend 1.5%: FA's best Turkish blend. Sits nicely in the background and brings a smokiness to the woody profile.
FA Fuji 3%: In many recipe's, 3% will give you a forward apple. Not here; this mix is dark. After a steep, it's just enough to infuse an apple flavor.
FA Oak Wood: At 1% we get a strong woody flavor. Not a lot of complexity, but other flavors blend into it nicely for some depth.
TFA Strawberry Ripe: 1% is just enough to bring some fruity sweetness. 1.5% also works, but at 2% and higher, I swear it begins to mute everything in mix. Could just be me though.
Steep Notes: As a shake and vape, the Fuji is a little "on top" of the mix, instead of within the woody profile. Also, the butterscotch needs a 2-3 days to blend into the overall background.
I suggest a 1 week steep. After that, things will just continue to smooth out. Since tobacco's tend to continually develop over time, the Fuji might mute a little after a month or two. Try adding 1 drop per 10ml to liven it up, if you so desire. Also, color may slightly darken over time.
Other Notes: Developed at 85vg/15pg (max VG), 3mg nic on a Goon with 28GX2/40G 316L Fused Claptons, 0.3 ohms @ 70 watts.
BlameReligion on reddit (not sure if he’s on ATF- I did some lurking, it is @MrZigglesworth) sent me a little sample of Ripe Vapes’ VCT to see if I could help identify the tobacco used in the recipe. Upon opening the bottle, I thought Holy vanilla bomb, Batman. It was obviously a capital V in the name and a tiny T.
But anywho, I gave the thing a try and my first thought was TFA Turkish, but not super strong, and I got a little bit of ashy grass that made me think of FE Tobacco Absolute. As you see, I didn’t change my mind.
I eventually got busy with other projects and kind of forgot about the VCT, but then BlameReligion gave me a little nudge to see where I was at with it, so I filled up a tank and took the real stuff to work with me. It didn’t really go all that great. The Toasted Almond that I’m fairly certain is in there is just a bit too much for me. Kind of tastes like it’s CAP Toasted Almond at like 2.5%. Just a bit too funky. And I reckon they probably use CAP Vanilla Custard V2, which I don’t have and don’t really care to have. Pretty sure the French Vanilla V2 is also in there, and I’ve never had v1, but I like V2 plenty enough to not feel like I’m missing out.
So I know this isn’t a 1:1 clone of the real thing, but I don’t think I’d want a clone of it because it’s just too much Almond for me. Might be ok MTL, but my recipe here works better for the way I prefer to vape.
Absolute bare minimum steep is 5 days or else the Turkish will be just a hair too up front to taste right. Gonna like your life a lot more of you just give it at least 2 weeks though.
Profile: Turkish Tobacco with a nice apple vibe.
A simple tobacco recipe I made for a friend a while ago.
The Bourbon here acts like a bridge between the Apple and the tobacco and at the same time, it gives the Apple a baked sensation.
The combination of apples brings more of a red apple than a green apple. A touch of Ry4 Double to bring some dark caramel notes to the profile.
Give at least a week to steep to calm down the TPA Turkish.
The term clone, invented by J. B. S. Haldane, is derived from the Ancient Greek word κλών klōn, "twig", referring to the process whereby a new plant can be created from a twig.
After tasting Charlie Nobles Tripoli (one of the best commercial juices out there) and trying out https://alltheflavors.com/users/ChemicalBurnVictim Three Cities A tribute to Tripoli, I decided to remix it myself. This is as close as I wish to get to Tripoli. I think it's damn close!
Tripoli is an 80/20 mix
After three months of tinkering with more iterations than I care to count, I’m sending this off to the world.
My Three Cities recipe was made without ever trying the real deal, and after I received a sample from ID10-T, I became slightly obsessed with trying to clone this juice. There is just something about it that makes it pretty obvious to me why it’s a popular juice.
Two things really jumped out at me. One was the satisfyingly dense mouth feel. I started out with RY4 Double and FE Cigar from the get-go, but it wasn’t dense enough. I eventually tried tasting a few drops of the juice to try to find a clue as to what could be in it, and I pretty much only tasted vanilla. Skipping all the vanilla trials, I ended up admitting defeat and used CAP Vanilla Custard. Using enough of that to get the mouth feel right made the taste way too vanilla heavy, so I lowered that down a bit and used some CAP Sugar Cookie. These two ingredients make this absolutely not a 1:1 clone since they contain them diketones, but god damn it they are good.
The other thing that really jumped out at me every time I tasted the real thing was this sweet little tickle on the tip of the tongue. It almost feels like a cooling sensation, but not. Hard to explain. But there’s a few things that I think are coming together here to give that feeling. TFA Toasted Almond, FW Fig, and TFA Turkish. I had to go a lot lower with all three of those than I thought I would have to, but each one lends a little something to that sweet little tickly top note.
I’m not going to say this is the perfect Tripoli recipe, but it’s the best one I can do.
