A velvety vanilla custard blended with rich caramel and touch of tobacco.
This RY4 custard takes a departure from ‘other’ attempts and let the ingredients do the work. I kept this as simple as I could without complicating the mix with unnessary ‘clutter’. Deceptively simple, mouthwateringly rewarding!
I went for my tried and tested INW custard base which acts as the foundation upon which I balance the star of the show...
Holy Holy Grail RY4 is the undisputed supreme master and beautifully imparts it’s inherent creamy caramel and vanilla with the embracing custard base. The tobacco slowly develops and fully rears its head after about 2 weeks, resulting in oral bliss.
The vanilla notes, present in the custard and Holy Holy Grail, is given a subtle boost by the Holy Vanilla and heightens the sweetness just a tad. Holy Vanilla has slight smoky and earthy notes, which plays beautifully with the Holy Grail and compliments it, seemingly naturally.
Give this baby the 2 weeks it deserves but have a taste after a week if you wish.
** I adjusted the INW Creme Brulee to 1% following further testing and feedback. The Creme Brulee was originally at 3% which overpowered the delicate RY4 notes and made the Holy Holy Grail play second fiddle...
