A lightly caramelized Apple and Peach combo with sweet ice cream on the side.
I find these 2 peaches combine to give a nice rounded flavour paired with fuji is a really nice profile. There is no caramel flavours in this as none of the ones i have seemed to fit as i didn't want a candy style, just melted sugar in butter, so i went with the butterscotch ripple as i feel this has a caramel flavour at low percentages, plus it helps with the creaminess of the vbic. Apple pie and CDS in low percentages are there just to add a light spice to the fruit. Needing a light alcohol backnote i went with 1 percent kentucky bourbon which for me is just the right amount to give it some warmth ( you may like it a little higher but for me this is perfect )
No sweetener as such, that's what the meringue is for, to give a light sugary sweetness to the fruits.
After a 3 day steep the profile is just what i was aiming for.
Quite a lot of flavours but nothing unusual.
Homemade Vanilla Almonds Cheesecake. This is a recipe that I've been working on for a long time, it started of as an attempt to clone a juice called white lady for a friend but it kind of steered off into it's own direction and now my friend prefers this to the original. Although the Almond is quite high % it is mellowed out nicely with the creams. Perfect with a cup of good coffee.
