This is a strong and creamy Latte with hazelnut and toffee accents. Formerly part of my Twisted Imagination one shot range at ChefsFlavours.co.uk
For me this needs at least 4 weeks to blend together and for the toffee and hazelnut to come out completely, however some have been enjoying this off a shake.
I was sat drinking a Latte made with hazelnut and toffee syrup and found myself thunking this would make a great vape, this is my attempt to re-create that profile
The coffee backbone is made up of OSDIY Lotta Latte, a pleasant and creamy latte on it's own, used here at 2.5% for the robusta coffee and that little bit of cream for a latte, used higher than this it just made the coffee too strong and wiped out all the other flavours. If you can't get OSDIY, VT Caffe Latte should be a decent sub but use at 1%-1.5%
To this 0.25% VT Arabica darkens up the coffee with the strong roasted black arabica beans, this increases the strength of the coffee in the mix without overpowering everything.
Now with the nice strong coffee base notes I needed to make it creamier so 3% VT Hokey Pokey Ice Cream (This tastes identical to VT Toffee Ice Cream so use instead if you can't get hokey pokey) is added, this gives a pleasant, sweet and creamy Ice Cream into the mix as well as the added bonus of adding the toffee, used lower than 3% it doesn't add enough toffee and higher than 3% it makes this more of a coffee flavoured ice cream.
For the hazelnut FW Creamy Hazelnut was the perfect choice at 1.5% this adds a realiatic Hazelnut with a creamy mouthfeel, the creaminess adds into the ice cream and starts to take it away from ice cream and more towards cream.
TFA Vanilla Swirl used at 2% to blend it all together and further steer the Ice Cream to a straight cream while adding more vanilla notes.
This is a creamy caramel boozie milkshake similar to the cocktail called a mudslide. This is a really well balanced mix with sweet creamy vanilla caramel on the inhale and some of the Irish cream and scotch coming out on the back end. This mix starts to come together at 5 days and really is developed at about 10 - days as the Irish cream and ice cream develop
The base for this mix is hokey pokey ice cream ( re - labeled as toffee ice cream)
The sweet cream adds a buttery creamy chocolate caramel note through the cream base. The VT milkshake base when used low adds a slight malted note that is needed in this mix. The hokey pokey ice cream provides a really thick vanilla ice cream that adds a darker sweet toffee note to contrast the lighter caramel note
Honey comb provides some texture and toffee/ chocolate notes to the mix as a topping
Irish cream and Scotch whiskey combine to create a baileys type of boozie note to the mix, that come out on the back of the the exhale . The Irish cream on its own does not provide a boozie note as much as I thought for a VT flavor but it is a pretty spot on Irish cream, with a noticeable chocolate note it is actually similar to the VT devon cream.. The Scotch whiskey is a SPOT on whiskey that unlike some of the other VT flavors can be used low and still provide the boozie scotch note
