This e-liquid was a thing for me time ago and since then i tried to make a remix as close as possible but playing with coffee concentrates makes you hate mixing.
Now i think i got close enough to share it.
Salted Caramel Machiatto has a top heavy caramel/ Butterscotch note, bright and dark at the same time followed by a butter milky note and a lot of sweetener.. A LOT!! with a subtle coffee note lingering through the vape.
I have been trying a lot of coffee concentrates to find the exact one and finally realised that VTA Hard Crack Toffee is the coffee note in this e-juice and is not an actual coffee concentrate( this shit happens so much).
Coffee is barely noticeable in the original and so in this mix,
add 0.25% at a time to reach your own sweet spot. I personally like it more at 2-2.25% but trying to get close to the original 1.75% is enough.
They call for salted caramel but i get a Butterscotch sour tangyness with some bright Salted Caramel so thats what i did. I think the caramel note is better here than in the original while being a bit thicker and richer( not a bad thing though).
For the Milky Buttery Cream part im pretty sure its just VTA Coffee Milk Froth as its pretty subtle but noticeable and this flavour, with just a touch of it , delivers a nice rich butter creamy feeling.
The sweetness in this juice is nearly offensive for me now.. but back in the day i vaped just commercial juice and didn't think it was that high.
0.75% super sweet it quite spot on for my mix but i think 1% or even higher is used in the original helping that bitter/sour note i get that comes from super sweet.
So adjust to taste but 0.75%-1% is where you get closer to the original.
You can SNV as nothing needs to steep out or feels harsh or rough. I think its pretty tasty but after a week it gets better.
I may tweak some % as steeps a bit more so keep in mind this is not a 100% finished recipe.
Smoked Butterscotch Latte kind of what starbucks makes.
VTA Coffee Milk Froth, Caffe Latte and Hard Crack Toffee each of them have subtle coffee notes; with them three we get that slight coffee note you get in this type of coffees.
Also each of of them add their own qualities, heavy delicious rich cream and caramel.
For the Butterscotch part 3% FW Butterscotch Ripple with 0.5% FLV Smoked Butterscotch and the added dark caramel/coffee notes from VTA's concenrates is all you need.
Now our Smoked Butterscotch blend is ready.
Sweetness in this beverages is quite high so if you like sweet commercial style vapes as well as highly sweetened coffee drinks 0.75% super sweet also works really well, but i think 0.5% is enough.
Concrete River Review - Yeah, it's pretty good? It kind of reminds me of some kind of matcha petit four. That cake base, along with the waxier parts of the eisai and the butteryness of the coffee milk froth.
What's most surprising here is that the coffee funk from the tiramisu and the coffee milk froth aren't really coming through clearly? I think that was the most concerning thing to me, just looking at the recipe.
I'll have to go back and check my notes on the tiramisu, but I think has some coffee in there, and the coffee milk froth has some as well. But the earthier lead-in from the eisai kind of bends around that finish on the coffees into tasting a lot more cohesive than it should.
I wouldn't call it especially "grassy", especially with something like a green tea in the recipe.
Although, I totally admit I eyeballed those percentages a bit, lol. You went full Jarvis with that .62% nonsense.
But yeah, pretty good.
Episode 87 - I saw a coffee drink, so I went for a gingerbread flavored latte. The Biscuit Base, Gingerbread, Gingerbread extra ginger, and Graham Cracker Clear make up the gingerbread flavor part of the latte. I was not aiming to have it be like eating the cookie stuck in the cup, that's just decoration, I was going for the drink itself. So the cookie flavor is not super distinct as a crunchy cookie. I think if I were going to go for that style I would have added FA cookie, some AP, and possibly some TFA Snickerdoodle. Just suggestions if you would like to try it out with this recipe.
The coffee layer consists of the VT Caffe Latte, and coffee milk froth. TO me the milk froth has no coffee notes in, but it's thick, creamy, and nearly buttery, which does help bridge the cookie flavors into the coffee. The Caffe Latte is not super strong, and competing with the creams and rich cookie flavors, it does need to be up at 4%. It was just enough for me to get a good stout coffee note for both me and my husband when we tested it. If you mix this and find it isn't quite strong enough for coffee notes for you, you could easily bump it up by 0.5% until you reach a point that it works for you. I would imagine most average tasters will be satisfied with the coffee level in this recipe. If you're a little sensitive, like I am it could probably be lowered by 0.5%, as when I tried it at 3.5% level I could taste the coffee well enough, but my husband couldn't taste it over the creams.
The FLV Whipped cream hangs out on the top layers of the profile, caught most at the end of the exhale and slight aftertaste of whipped cream.
I didn't find that it needed sweetener. However if you are someone who likes sweetener adding your preferred level to this recipe should yield good results.
This is a delightful recipe for the cool winter days coming up here in the Northern Hemisphere. If you like coffee and gingerbread you'll enjoy this flavor.
Roasted pecan had a nice coffee caramel roasted note that is supported a bit by the coffee milk froth that has a vanilla top note with light cinnamon almond finish mixed for fresh 03 Saturday show
while there is no actual coffee flavor here the roasted pecan does give a slight roasted coffee note that is really pleasant but the combination of the vanilla, cinnamon and almond really shine in this mix Add sweetner to your liking - although the marzipan adds some inherit sweetness
