Made for a pod system (the Innokin EQS pod system, to be exact). I wanted something woody and smoky with a heavy-handed pour of vanilla. The Ylang Ylang edges the vanillas in a spicy, floral direction, which meshes well with the Red Oak and sandalwood of Wood Spice. Black Fire adds the char. Vanilla Ruyan, also, helps bring this into the realm of a smoked vanilla essence. Butterscotch is there as deeper note underneath and to bring a level of richness to the table. Even with other devices charged and filled, I keep reaching back for this. It's a welcome change of pace. It's not really like anything else, it just is what it is . . . smoky, woody vanilla
Had to take a break from testing/mixing FA Tobaccos . . . so, I made this. A banana/coconut pudding RY4. The bones of this are the beautiful duo of coconuts in hashslingingslashur's Leche de Coco with 2 fantastic bananas (TFA Banana Nut Bread and Solub Arome's Banana Flambe), FA Bavarian Cream, and the underrated JF Cookie v2 making up the pudding. 2 RYs (JF RY4 Double and WF Vanilla Ruyan) along with FLV Smoked Butterscotch making up the RY4. Enjoy!
The recipe for my Chefs Flavours one shot. Sorry I've been a bit late releasing these! As per the link: https://chefsflavours.co.uk/karl-custard-30ml-shyndo/ this is pistachio with aromatic ruyan custard and a spicy vanilla brown sugar finish. Basically my own loveletter to the pistachio ry4 profile just done a little differently. Using such a large amount of tpa pistachio on top of brown sugar can be quite sharp. Usually you would use your typical ry4 to force mute this a bit but WF vanilla Ruyan Custard lacks the "ethyl maltol mixing everything together" quality. So we use heaps of vanilla swirl to calm down the sharp edges and fill out the volume a bit. The star to me is actually the WF vanilla ruyan custard in that it's the only ry4 I've had that has such a distinctive "layer" to it. It stands out on its own and in its own place in the vape where something like tpa ry4 double would just BE the whole vape in combination with whatever flavors you use.
An RY4 mix I've been working with folded into Alfred Pudding's Cheesecake layer. I keep coming back to this, and it doesn't get old. Tasty as hell off the shake and only gets better given time. For me, this reaches ADV status . . . from pairing it with coffee in the morning, to accompanying a sip of whiskey at night, and everything in between.
This is a sweet, robust RY4 tobacco slathered in vanilla-laced caramel backed up by the velvet-smooth cream of cheesecake . . . I'm in my happy place.
Listening to this amazing Deftones Mix throughout concept, creation, and testing. The colors/visuals at about the 4min 15sec mark is what sparked the idea.
So, I didn't have everything for MaxSavage's Golden Boy, but it sounded delicious. Therefore, I mixed his idea with my Long Gone Lonesome Blues (minus the blueberries and lemon), adding what I had that was "all things golden." Thus, Stay Gold, Ponyboy was born . . . I thought I would share. I've been vaping it all week on the ride to and from work and felt like it was ready to share . . . not to mention, after a long week, I've had a few and have been listening to Dinosuar Jr's You're Living All Over Me and Sonic Youth's Sister on repeat . . . 1987 was a truly a golden year for music. I'm feeling my oats.
This is a dessert tobacco . . . a creamy, golden dessert tobacco.
