This is a revision of a recipe I made on a Youtube video. I increased percentages for better flavor on the steep. This recipe is good on the shake but really comes into it's own on a week or longer steep. It is also big batch approved, I am vaping some that is months old.
A tried and tested tobacco pairing.
FA Maple Syrup for the Maple backed up by CAP Caramel for added richness.
A tobacco modeled after a flavored Syrian Cigar I once had.
The spicy edge from Native and Turkish start this off. Turkish to bring in the Eastern influence, Native to darken it up more and lend a more cigarish edge to the mix.
Turkish and Native can both get a bit dark, but also are not super complex on their own which is where Connecticut Shade comes in. It brightens while adding depth with it's naunced notes.
This is a spiced Cigar, and how can you have spiced without spice. I wanted a woodsy tone thus the Wood Spice, Pumpkin Spice is a great blend for a lot of reasons, used here for all those reasons :) FLV Clove, because, well, if you have not you should.
Toasted Coconut, Mixed Nuts, Sweet Brown Sugar, Toffee Undertones
A remix, with tobacco added.
This is the basic description of the commercial juice this is inspired by. I went on a business trip and did not take enough juice for the entire week. I wound up checking for a B&M but the only things near the hotel in that part of upstate NY sold their own house juices so I picked the one that looked more professional. This juice of theirs was the only one that resonated with me so I did their special for the day of 3x30 for 30$ From the minute I tasted it to the end of the third bottle all I could think was DAMMIT THIS NEEDS TOBACCO.
I went about this a bit different from my normal approach which is to get my tobacco profile and build on it. I went with an established profile, got as close to it as I wanted to adjusting for my tastes and added the tobacco. This is a darker rich profile, I wanted to keep in that vain keeping it rich and dark. I do not know that this is ADV material. But it is really good for me, I have been vaping this in the evenings.
I was working on a different profile for the upcoming "remix month" and happened to have FLV Mango and Peach on the desk next to the bottles of flavorings I was working with. Thought it would be an interesting combo. I am not going to break the flavors down here, read this as not even pretending to have a goal in mind with this, I thought it would be interesting and good, and it is ;)
I have only done two versions of this one just as is and one with .3% Super Sweet. I really like both versions. This version is a bit more interesting in that as you change your wattage, airflow different aspects of it will shine through. The version with super sweet seems to be a bit more in your face but more linear losing a bit of it's complexity.
Have a mix, have a vape, enjoy
I am starting to get in the mood for some fall vapes. Having said that time for the truth.... The inspiration for this mix came from accidentally mixing some of my Prapple Bacco into a squonk bottle almost half full of @rageisalotofwork https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/23772#sadlad_toast_crunch_by_rageisalotofwork
This is to me a fall vape, it evokes some of the fondest memories of mine with my father and uncles, shotguns, flannel, pheasants and food. This is NOT a tobacco vape, it is a woodsy dessert ensemble that changes a bit to more desert or more woodsy and even a good tobacco hint depending on wattage and airflow.
It got me thinking for a combo of the two, while that accidental mix was really good I felt the abundance of bottom of the bowl thickened sweet milk was too much for the tobacco.
FLV Red Burley and Turkish for the tobacco note in Prapple.
FLV Granny Smith and Toffee for the combo that I loved there.
From Rage's Sadlad we have the bakery cinnamon components leaving out the cereal (for now)
I added FLV Cream in to give the entire recipe some cohesiveness and bring everything together limiting to 1% to keep it from going creamy again.
I have done several versions of this over a few weeks. I keep coming back to my original idea of the modified mix of the two recipes. Raising the tobaccos to get them to break through more made the mix too heavy, lowering the desert profile made the mix weirdly watery.
A nuanced, almost complex super simple aromatic pipe tobacco.
(I suck at 3rd person ego stoking)
Inspired by the Aromatic Tobacco episode of NOTED our Hero woke early the next day (5amFML) sat down with his morning cupa coffee and an atomizer full of God's own Cardinal... He began pondering the aromas from the night before, doing some quick foggy headed math he knocked together a simple banger.
INW Black Cherry for Pipe
INW Vanilla for Pipe
It's Cherry Vanilla Pipe Tobacco, needs no notes, just mix it, vape it, enjoy it, modify it.
Disclaimer. I literally knocked this together before work. It is fantastic on the shake, it will deepen a bit and develop some more complexity over time should you choose to steep it.
Every since I did the cantaloupe peach tea for the DIYorDIE mixathon I wanted to play around with the peach and cantaloupe pairing more. To me it was really close to an heirloom melon by the name of Charentais. The Charentais is a a really rich, sweet, thick and slightly floral cantaloupe-ish melon. Anyways, I wanted a Cantaloupe forward vape that wasn't just a boring melon. This has some nuance and is really close to my target.
Up front, I have been through a few iterations of this since the mixathon. The only thing missing from my testing is TFA Honeysuckle. It is good with it in it, it is good without the cactus, it is good without the cactus with honeysuckle. I used honeysuckle at 1.5% and at 2%. This is the funky odd version I cant seem to stop vaping. It does work without the WS-23, I have been enjoying it quite a bit lately, Above 0.5% the WS-23 becomes too distracting to me but other people might enjoy it higher.
CAP Cantaloupe - Seriously good cantaloupe, only flaw is the slight to heavy leaning towards candy depending on usage.
INW Cactus - Just enough to pull the melon back towards fruit instead of candy, the little extra juiciness does not hurt the profile.
FA Pear - For some juice and as well to lean even further towards fruit.
INW Peach and JF Honey Peach - This pairing brings some more flesh and thickness into the mix as well as bringing a slightly floral edge to the mix.
INW Custard - An easy button for mouthfeel, texture, body, thickness, etc, etc, etc, Also useful in many other applications. Used here to thicken and add that almost custardy thick note that a really ripe cantaloupe or charentais will have.
This does need the 2 days for the cactus to die down and the custard to find it's place.
Fun Food Fact - Diacetyl is present in really ripe Cantaloupe. It is mostly produced through fermentation, a good many fruits/melons/berries start fermenting the second they ripen.
Creamy, rich, complex, complete vanilla ice cream that mimics several types of ice cream and even frozen custard at different percentages.
This is a very strong Coconut flavor that can go from crisp cream modifier to heavy coconut to WAX very quickly. Best used under 1% for blends can take over at 2%
NOT A FLAVORING. This is not Pear, it is NOT a flavor. This has a ton of Butyric in it and playing main stage or solo that is what you are going to taste. What this flavor does and does an amazing job at is providing texture. It is the texture of really ripe pears or soft apples, it can be the texture of mangos, melons, etc. It also does a really good job of texturizing sorbet/slush/smoothie type recipes. I would recommend keeping this under 1% in recipes and even at that it will need to be a flavorful recipe to work at 1% Around .5% is golden for me.
