This recipe is a Work In Progress.

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

Listening to Pavement's Cream of Gold off the album Terror Twilight when I started thinking about this recipe: . . . for real, listen to some Pavement (aside from Sonic Youth, the only band I never got to see that I would kill to see).

This recipe is an homage to the DIYorDie Discord. From the well-deserved love for Fear's Cardinal to daily (he thought, to himself, hourly . . . tongue-in-cheek) discussion of burl wood by JJ'S_WHOLESALE, the Discord is a place where newcomers (like myself) can rub elbows with the heavy hitters of DIY. A place where someone who just placed their first order for concentrates can get advice from mavens like Kopel, ID10-T, JennJarvis, mlNikon, ConcreteRiver, etc (I really could go on at length naming mixers that frequent the Discord). It's an important tool for mixers of any level, in my opinion.

This is, to me, all things golden. It's a smooth, rich, oaky RY4 . . . creamy dollops of butterscotch and caramel drenched tobacco dripping on fresh, glowing coils.

Oak Milk brings a caramel milk to the, already, rich caramel of Holy Holy Grail RY4. These are further enhanced by the buttery creaminess of Butterscotch Ripple paired with FLV's Butterscotch. Vanilla Ruyan blends into the mix . . . a, hinted-at, smoked vanilla custard. Red Oak brings a woodsy, casked touch. The tobacco is an equally-weighted marriage of Red Burley and Native Tobacco. Cream of Gold is dessert tobacco to the core.

Mixed at a 60vg/40pg mix and aged for 3 days . . . I enjoyed it SNV, and even more aged a few days. I feel like this is ready to be released (or it could be the slight drunkenness of an educator that recently received news of another snow day).
