I've made an alternate version of this using ID10-T 's suggestions from his review. Removed the WF pistachio, upped TFA to 3.5% and upped Holy Grail to 7%. Give it a try. It definitely upped the sweetness a bit with more caramel coming through from the Holy Grail. I wont be changing this original recipe though as I worked pretty hard on it and I still think it's great as is. Both versions are worth vaping to me 👍🏻
This came about from 2 things: My love of Charlie Noble's Pistachio RY4 , and my newfound love for Fear's Cardinal
Charlie Noble Pistschio RY4 was my first ADV. I loved it. When I started mixing I was stoked to find DiYorDie had a somewhat close clone of it. His one shot was my first foray into mixing. So this profile holds a special place for me.
Fast forward a couple years and I haven't messed with tobacco's much for some time now. Then do to popular reviews I finally pick up holy holy RY4 and some Flavorah Tobaccos , and try Cardinal. Blown away. Freaking delicious.
So now comes this, not quite a straight up Pistachio Cardinal, and not quite PRY4 with holy holy ry4 subbed. More of an inspired by both greats situation.
I started with just TPA Pistachio but then I found WF Pistachio Cream pairs really nicely with TPA while giving it a bit more of a sweet, slightly creamy vibe so I added that.
I've been wanting a way to use Vanilla Bourbon but it just doesnt fit in most applications but here it pairs nicely with the tobacco and nutty notes
As far as the tobacco, I love the way that Red Burley pairs with and adds more to the tobacco notes of the holy grail ry4
Lastly , I added hazelnut. It helps a tiny bit with the nuttiness but mostly it just adds a nice subtle sweetness to the mix.
