If youve tried blue note in the past, which im sure most veteren mixer have then you know how great it is.
Regardless the blueberry is nice but lacking so ive bumped it up with an awesome combo to compliment it. The tres leches (i love with blueberries anyway) plays to the creaminess of bluenote whilst the cheesecake plays to the creaminess too it also lifts some those slight bakery notes and adds body/ thickness.
This is a competitor for my blueberry cream cake as my favourite blueberry vape.
so where to begin, a ry4 cookie custard - VRC im very impressed with i get custard with faint tobacco notes which play nicely with ry4 double.
Lucky shot was hard to get ahold of for me but what a great flavour, it brings caramel and creams in the mix and some great bakery notes which literally blend with everything in this recipe perfectly
The blackcurrant is the main fruit in the mix lifted by harvest berry as i find it blackberry forward with sweet jammy notes then deepend by saskatoon berries.
VC2 is a great custard here as it has great mouth feel and remains fairly light much like Flv VC. After a good steep i havnt come across another custard thats like Flv's but i ephasise the steeping with it but it does stay fairly light still. So we still need some richness and thickness for the custard - enter caps french vanilla - adds depth and thickness to the custards but not as much as if id say used all caps VC.
Not very sharp on its own and fairly mild but sharp blackcurrant is a great flavour, used inw's to just push it up slightly with cranberry/ hibiscus to add tartness/ sharpness and some authentic tang.
The cheesecake is the back bone to the blackcurrant top notes and keeps it grounded some what. I get everything i need from yes we cheese cake at 3% with a little graham help from caps and using NYCC to really fill it out.
butter cream is the main body here, its slightly soft, sweet and buttery - real nice cookie flavour. Boosted with biscuit and some extra sweetness from the cookie dough and yellow cake fills in some extra body.
Devon cream needs no introduction as a decadent cream pushed further with HS FVIC & whipped cream.
Creme caramel as the primary flavour here, its soft and creamy with great caramel notes and using butter toffee with fa caramel to push those forward.
Using inw custardnto help play on those pudding notes/ mouthfeel whilst custard premium and sweet cream bring in more custard notes and vanilla swirl brings that extra vanilla in.
Now i know the raspberry is higher than normal but... with creams it works very well. The higher % allows it to stand up to longer steep times and the cream dialnit down slightly but what you get is a very authentic fresh tart raspberry.
Caps VBIC makes the main body of the cream whilst sweet cream add body and sweetness then cream fresh & milk keep bring it back to a normal fresh cream flavour.
Heavy sweet raspberry like syrup mixed into a decedant vanilla custard.
Used WF VC due to it simularities with Caps VC with the exception on this doesnt carry some those spicier notes Caps does but other than that this is just as good imo. Still wanted some of that Caps vanilla goodness and FV brings that in well at this %. Used FA NYCC because its slightly softer and not quite as sour as Caps and this also has a slightly fruity maybe strawberry back notes (although its light).
Shisha Raspberry has plenty of punching power in this mix and paired with a little Jammy Berry its sticky heaven, steeping with change the raspberries however - the longer you leave this to steep the more those creams will tame the raspberry into velvety goodness
