DIY E-Liquid Recipe

This recipe is a Work In Progress.

It might be amazing, but it's creator doesn't think it's finished yet.

AKA Folkart's Reserve

I don't normally buy commercial ejuice. However, I broke down and purchased Cuttwood Boss Reserve to try to clone for Remix Month. I had never tried this eliquid, but as commercial juices go, it's pretty good. Cuttwood describes this profile as: Golden Honey Graham Cracker with Roasted Nut Clusters Drenched in Creamy Milk and Layered with Sliced Bananas.
On vaping this for the first time, I got Honey, nut clusters, biscuit, slightly milky and banana cream. So this is how I approached it.
For the Honey and milk I used the obvious, FLV Milk and Honey at 1.5%. This seemed to be predominate top note so I used it at the upper range at 1.5%.
The nut clusters was tricky. I thought at first to use FA Mixed nuts and maybe TPA Peanut Butter. But the more I vaped Boss Reserve, I became convinced it was just simply AP. Acetyl Pyrazine adds a "nut cluster" cereal note to this mix at 1%.
Cuttwood says there is a graham note in their juice but I get more of a INW Biscuit but just a touch(.25%).
The banana note was pretty easy to pick out. TPA Banana Cream at 1.5% was used for this note. Now off the shake, the banana note is stronger than Boss Reserve. Just let it steep for a few days and it settles down to where it needs to be.
The sweetness level of Boss Reserve is on the upper limits of what I like to vape but not as high as most commercial juices I've tried. CAP Super Sweet at .25% seemed to be spot on for this mix.

I hope people will mix this to see how close it is to the original. Enjoy :)

Folkart's Reserve OneShot now available at https://nomnomz.co.uk/

Can be a shake and vape but is best after a 3 day steep.

A good starting point for a base to build on to get more closer to the original version.
User: CygnusY1 Score: 3 Entered: 11 months ago
This is nothing like the original, which definitely has a toasted almond note and so shouldn't be called a Clone. Nevertheless, it's a pretty good interpretation.

Nice juice i mixed 2 versions of this the first i sunbed banana cream for tfa DX banana cream ihe juice was delicious after 10 days steep. I ordered the normal tfa banana cream and mixed it again it was still nice but after steeping the banana was gonei would recommend mixing with the DX version of banana cream to me the banana holds up better. Overall this is a 5 star recipe well done Sir keep them comeing
User: ramblingpariah Score: 5 Entered: about 1 year ago
Really tasty. It's amazing as is, but I definitely want to play around here by amping up the banana, trying to tweak it with custards, etc. Just a great vape that really makes use of FLV Milk & Honey.

I'm fairly new to DIY and I've mixed up a ton of recipes. Most were ok, some were good, but this one is great. It's the first recipe that I made a second, larger bottle of. The balance of creamy, banana-y, and nutty is just wonderful.
User: JColt Score: 5 Entered: over 1 year ago
Just made this up. I liked all ingredients so I made 120 ml. Normally a new recipe I will make 30 ml if I've I liked the ingredients and 10 ml if newer flavors. I vape about 5 ml and it is great. In 3 days I bet I like it even more when banana settles and everything comes together. Low flavor %'s make it so it's not over bearing and easily an adv. Thanks!

Haven't tried the original, but this is one out of five recipies that I always make sure to have a big bottle ready of. I usually do fruits and creams, and this is the perfect "get a break" mix. The AP and Milk & Honey is perfectly balanced to give it an interesting dark nutty sweetness.

Freaking greatness! Never tried the original, but this #remix is badass! Well done @folkart!
User: NikosD Score: 4 Entered: over 1 year ago
Haven't waited yet for it to steep but first thoughts are that it is a little bit under the intensity that I like and that AP is more upfront than what I would like. It is nice overall and I believe that it will improve after a couple of days. Will come back to revise the review then. P.S.: I haven't tried the original
User: RockyHarlow Score: 4 Entered: over 1 year ago
Super solid after a nice long steep. The longer it sits, the better it gets. I tend to pop in LA banana cream more often than TPA but review is based on original. Thanks for sharing Folkart.

I fucking love this mix. I have never tried the original, and honestly never thought I'd be in to a banana vape...But blended with the AP and M&H, this mix has found a permanent spot in my rotation. Well done!

Ive never tried the OG, but this is a very strange and unusual mix, In a good way. Very well balanced and perfectly sweet. my initial thoughts on the AP was "Are you maddd?" but it works very very well. it might not be a favorite for all, but definitely grows on you. AMAZING Flavor for a 4.5% mix, Awesome Recipe Folkart, well done and Thanks!!!

IMO I think it needs an actual nut flavor (some sort of hazelnut or almond would be good, I use PUR Vanilla Nut Brittle) and a little less AP. The version I made with 0.5% AP still gives me a salty fritos vibe underneath the nice creamy banana and biscuit/graham cracker. Beyond that, it's a good mix and I can't stop vaping it!
User: Germ Score: 5 Entered: about 2 years ago
10/10 mix. I made a version subbing VT Banana Custard at the same percent. I highly recommend trying that out if you haven't yet.

I wasn't really a fan of this. So much AP from the Biscuit and actual AP all I could taste was corn chips. I imagine if I tinkered with the percentages I could get something I liked.
User: DavidAnanda Score: 5 Entered: over 2 years ago
I do hate AP. But you have me here vaping your recipe as an addict. I tough AP+INW biscuit was too much, but you got a balance there, not sure how. This is just an awesome, thick, sweet and very real material. If you are thinking about it please go ahead and mix it.
User: Jmill157 Score: 5 Entered: over 2 years ago
Never had the original but I wasn’t paying attention and overshot either the AP or Biscuit (damn I wish I remember because it’s GREAT) so I just steeped it longer (2.5 weeks) and again, it’s great. I’m sure the original is even more balanced. And I’m all about low flavoring ! Fantastic recipe !
User: alexis666 Score: 5 Entered: over 2 years ago
Never tried the original but this is one of my favourite recipes. It's rich and complex but smooth and very addictive. I bought a one shot of it from nomnomz and I can't put it down. I find it hard to identify any one flavour in it, it's that well balanced. An ADV is a strange concept to me because I change juices all the time but this is one that I will happily vape for many days at a time.
User: Katumbas Score: 5 Entered: over 2 years ago
Never tried the original juice but this takes the cup. Full on flavour with just 4 ingredients at low percentages. Excellent recipe Folkart!

User: crumbym Score: 5 Entered: over 2 years ago
I have become addicted to this, more than the original Boss Reserve. I have made about 600ml of this and have another 600ml steeping. I'm running out of TFA Banana Cream, will make a small batch with LA Banana cream. I hope the flavors are close enough until I get more TFA in. This is by FAR my ADV and I have made lots of stuff. The AP I rarely kept on hand but now I had to order 4oz bottle (as well as 4oz of M&H) because I will be making this MANY times over. I wish I could give it 10 stars, best recipe on this site in my opinion.

A nice recipe here. Coming from someone who is not a big fan of banana or nut flavors this is actually really tasty. Some excellent flavor bending here...tastes almost exactly as described off the shake. Just a note from my experience vaping this after a steep of 10 days...this changes from honey nut clusters and graham cracker to rice. Yep. Creamy brown rice with sliced bananas and honey drizzled on top. Not complaining but I thought I should note that. Anyways keep up the good work and I will be mixing this up again someday soon.

How can something this simple, with such a low percentage, be such a masterpiece?! I love this recipe; it manages to taste like so much more than the sum of it's parts, and it satisfies cravings I didn't even know I had. Really, really delicious. Thank you so much for sharing it!

Way to nutty for me. As I can't compare it to the original and generally don't like nutty vapes, I just leave this as a comment without a rating.
User: LimeDrive Score: 5 Entered: almost 3 years ago
Boss Reserve might be the best of the few premium juices I tried before DIY, except the coil-gunking sweetness was as high as the price. This recipe really fixes those two things. I made it with .75% FLV Banana instead of Banana Cream and made one batch with INW Biscuit and one with JF Biscuit. I prefer the INW Biscuit because it is drier and the AP turns it into a nut cluster cereal. I didn't even know AP could be used this high as its own flavor. I remember the real BR tasting like brown sugar, so the Milk & Honey brings that amazing dark sugar flavor with the creaminess to balance it out. The banana tastes like putting banana slices on top of the cereal. You hit the jackpot here!
User: SlashaLO Score: 5 Entered: almost 3 years ago
This, this is amazing. I've had the original, and it is very similar. I much prefer this one though for sure. You can taste every little layer here as well. The biscuit/AP give it that slight crunch. The M&H help blend everything together. This is a great example of a more simple, straightforward mix that creates a layered, and even slightly complex mix.
User: MrBurgundy Score: 5 Entered: almost 3 years ago
Absolutely phenomenal. I’ve never had the original, but this stuff is hard to put down. Off the shake, the Milk & Honey is pretty forward. After a few days it begins to meld into the Banana Cream. Biscuit and AP give it a crunchy, nutty twist that keeps me coming back for more. Each delicate layer is given room to shine. Folkart did a masterful job here. One of the best recipes I’ve had all year. It starts out fantastic and gets better with each passing day. Do yourself a favor and mix this one up. Thanks for sharing, folkart!
