Every time remix month comes about, I like to go after that elusive eliquid that had previously escaped me. After numerous attempts from the community to get a Duchess remix, I finally feel like this is worth releasing to the public. This is a few years in the making and I like to give credit to Method aka Mr. Hardwick for laying the foundation and getting us to this point.
In Duchess Reserve the thing that always had me baffled was the cookie aspect, I lowered the butter pecan to .25%, and it’s critical to not overpour because it can take over fast! And added in some graham cracker to round out the cookie notes.
Also the cakey aspect, I feel like the cake batter dip combined with tres leches covers that pretty well, and adds some sweetness, cake batter dip may have just been the missing link. I went back and forth with TFA vanilla custard, FW, and Cap VC, to me the Cap version was closer to the original in every aspect. Looking back to the time this eliquid came out, I could easily see them exclusively using FW and just getting the Cap Vanilla Custard from a vendor and buying that one concentrate in bulk. At that time, Cap VC was king and still is to this day. Especially after a good steep.
With that being said I do need to move on from this chase, and I’m happy to do so now since I really do think we’re damn close. Here I present my final version of the Duchess Reserve for #remixmonth.
Here's my attempt at a Boosted remix. This is a recipe I've been chasing for atleast 3 years now and while it's still not exact, I do feel this is the closest recipe out to the original. After going out and getting a few bottles I actually feel they may have changed the formula, I remember the original being really buttery and creamy. But non the less it's still a great recipe.
Another simple 3 ingredient recipe, (all TFA) here is my simple Peanut Butter Cheesecake recipe. I like to make this with 1% FLV PB and 1% LA Cream Cheese Icing added but it's still a great recipe as is, and a great recipe for those who don't like to add in a bunch of flavors. Feel free to add sweetener to taste. Just to be clear this is a shake and vape recipe. In my opinion, peanut butter dies and kind of taste bland after a steep. So again this is formulated as a shake and vape only, and is best right away.
I've been playing around with FLV cookie dough for a little bit, and after Wayne released Obsidian it definitely inspired me. FLV cookie dough is a little weird to work with, at first I really didn't like it. It almost has an RY4 taste to it right away as weird as that sounds, to me atleast. But I can see why Wayne went that route. With some supporting flavors and of course a little time it does come out pretty tasty! I don't add any sweetener here, and it probably would benefit from some, so add .5% super sweet if you want. FLV Cookie Dough, and FLV Frosting are a little harsh right away, so I do like to add a little more VG. This is my spin off from Obsidian, here I present MrColdOnes Creamy Cookie Dough!
This is one recipe that I always keep a 120 in stock. A creamy, thick raspberry cheesecake! My favorite cheesecake recipe to date! I love the way LA cream cheese icing blends into the Cap NY cheesecake and it's something I've been adding to a lot of my cheesecake recipes. It really makes the ny cheesecake stand out against the raspberry combo. I use INW Raspberry and TFA Raspberry sweet together in a lot of my raspberry recipes, and the apple pie to make the raspberrys pop and add some depth to the overall cheesecake crust. FLV cream is now my favorite cream to use, so I went with this instead of Cap VC. You can add the sweetener of your choice, but I think it's sweet enough as it is.
This is one of my favorite custard recipes I've been making for a while now. I've made a few changes and figured I'd put it out there. The FW Blueberry, FLV Blueberry Muffin, FA Blilberry, and INW raspberry combo make a very sweet, and almost realistic blueberry. I sometimes use FA Fuji in place of the INW Raspberry, but I like my blueberrys a little darker with a custard. Speaking of custard I use the good ol Cap V1 VC as my go to custard, along with TFA cheesecake graham crust to provide that depth. And of couse I had to add in the combo of FLV Cream and INW Shisha Vanilla, made famous from the recipe "Longing" to finish of the cream base. Being the custard fan I am, I could vape this and Coop34's Raspberry Custard forever and probably not get sick of it. Let sit for a good 7 days, as with any custard it gets better with time. Hope you all enjoy!
This recipe originally came about during my quest to create the Mexican candy Pelon Pelo Rico into a vape. Living in the Southwest Pelon is a staple at every convenient store and it only made sense to recreate it. While this recipe is not exactly Pelon, it is something similar, almost like taking all of the Mexican candies on the shelf and mixing them into a bowl. (Make sure not to over pour the FLV heat, too much and it can really take over and be un vapeable, for me at least, I do like 1 or 2 drops in a 30 ml.) Here I bring you the candy of Mexico!
An easy three ingredient spot on vanilla powdered donut recipe. I used to mix this up with Cap Glazed Donut, but since FA Zeppola came out it has definitely been my go to for a donut base. This recipe could be tinkered and made more complex, but it's delicious as is and showcases just how good of a flavor Zeppola is.
