"Tropical Melon with a Coconut Exhale"
Sounds strange but it has a cult following. And for good reason. Creamy, buttery coconut with a clean melon flavor. It breaks up the monotony of your ADV of Strawberries and Dragonfruit on top of being refreshing and unique.
Good as a Shake & Vape but gets better after a short steep.
Updates and Revisions:
Coconut (TPA) 1.5% to Coconut (FA) 1%
I can't believe I didn't think of this before. Duh.
Coconut Candy (TPA) lowered to 1%
To better compliment FA Coconut.
Introducing Honeydew II (TPA) at 2%
Lowered Butter Cream (CAP) from 1.5% to 1%.
This should be a supporting flavor and I feel this change reflects that.
Omitted Almond (FA).
As much as I wanted to continue to keep FA Almond in this mix, there was not much of a difference. Feel free to continue adding it to your own mixes, but at .5%, it seemed unnecessary.
3/21/18 BIG UPDATE:
Almond (FA) 1.5% to .5%
Coconut (FA) to Coconut Candy (TPA)
VBIC 3% to 4%
Toasted Marshmallow (TPA)
Went back to A/AP VBIC. After testing, I have concluded that Diketones are delicious and in small quantities, I have had no problems. Ordering Sweet Coconut (FLV) and will continue to test.
Changed Golden Butter (CAP) to Butter Cream (CAP). The Butter Cream lends a bit of sweetness and still brings that buttery note I wanted.
Lowered the Honeydew (TPA) by 1%. I feel that 3% still brings that overall melon tone, but perhaps without nose raping you.
Changed Toasted Almond (TFA) to Almond (FA). I feel like the sweetness of Flavour Art's Almond will really shine in this recipe.
Changed Butter to Golden Butter to reflect Capella's decision to change the name.
I have reworked the recipe to replace VBIC with A/AP free VBIC. I don't expect a noticeable taste difference.
I've taken out the Cantaloupe and reworked the other percentages.
Side note: I've seen my recipe re-posted on other sites and re-posted here. I'm glad you guys like it!
I steeped for 3 weeks and it was quite close. I reduced the Cantaloupe and upped the Honeydew. I really feel like I'd miss the Cantaloupe if it wasn't there, so I'm trying a reduced batch before I consider omitting it all together.
