I've been delving into tobacco's. So far I have no idea what I'm doing. But, one thing I do know pretty well is desserts. So I figured I would start with the most non intrusive tobacco I could think of. RY4. I eye Holy Grail RY4 by DIYFS every time I re-up on Holy Vanilla or see mentions of Cardinal, and I finally bit the bullet a few weeks ago. Here is my first tobacco recipe that I can say is super tasty.
Holy Grail RY4 as I'm sure most of you know, is thick and creamy. Delicious sweet tones of caramel and vanilla really serve as the backbone for this recipe. It has a touch of tobacco that peaks out every now and again that plays well with others. I was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed this concentrate, I can see it serving as a main caramel note with out much fuss in tons of other recipes. I will definitely be keeping this stocked!
This combo has never steered me wrong. I first saw it used in Leche de Coco. FA Coconut is a nice creamy coconut, much like the meaty part of the fruit, that serves as an accent to our main coconut note. This stuff is super tasty and finds it's way into a lot of my recipes when I want a little nuance and added creaminess. FLV Sweet Coconut is hands down my favorite coconut flavoring. It's an amazing start to any recipe where you want a milky and smooth coconut taste. It almost gives off a coconut candy vibe, but really meshes well with caramel to add some silkiness and vibrance. Coconuts and caramel are a match made in heaven.
Body time. I think I use FW Graham Cracker too much. It's my favorite GC for sure. It's crunchy and buttery. It has some honey. It tastes cookie-like, and after a nice long steep it has some coconut tones. Seemed like a no brainer.
I wanted to keep this recipe simple. It ended up being far more complex taste wise than I anticipated.
It's like a graham cracker dipped in milky, coconut infused caramel. Sometimes I get the tobacco. Sometimes not. Either way it's staying in my rotation, a definite winner in my book. Enjoy!
After feedback and testing I have changed FW Graham Cracker from 2% to 3%.
