This is a strong and creamy Latte with hazelnut and toffee accents. Formerly part of my Twisted Imagination one shot range at ChefsFlavours.co.uk
For me this needs at least 4 weeks to blend together and for the toffee and hazelnut to come out completely, however some have been enjoying this off a shake.
I was sat drinking a Latte made with hazelnut and toffee syrup and found myself thunking this would make a great vape, this is my attempt to re-create that profile
The coffee backbone is made up of OSDIY Lotta Latte, a pleasant and creamy latte on it's own, used here at 2.5% for the robusta coffee and that little bit of cream for a latte, used higher than this it just made the coffee too strong and wiped out all the other flavours. If you can't get OSDIY, VT Caffe Latte should be a decent sub but use at 1%-1.5%
To this 0.25% VT Arabica darkens up the coffee with the strong roasted black arabica beans, this increases the strength of the coffee in the mix without overpowering everything.
Now with the nice strong coffee base notes I needed to make it creamier so 3% VT Hokey Pokey Ice Cream (This tastes identical to VT Toffee Ice Cream so use instead if you can't get hokey pokey) is added, this gives a pleasant, sweet and creamy Ice Cream into the mix as well as the added bonus of adding the toffee, used lower than 3% it doesn't add enough toffee and higher than 3% it makes this more of a coffee flavoured ice cream.
For the hazelnut FW Creamy Hazelnut was the perfect choice at 1.5% this adds a realiatic Hazelnut with a creamy mouthfeel, the creaminess adds into the ice cream and starts to take it away from ice cream and more towards cream.
TFA Vanilla Swirl used at 2% to blend it all together and further steer the Ice Cream to a straight cream while adding more vanilla notes.
I used to really enjoy FW Butterscotch Ripple at 10% Standalone, it was a decent vape however it was a little 'flat' so I decided to come up with a mix that would add some depth and boost those butterscotch notes.
Tested on a Asmodus C4 at 0.3ohms 50w, Profile 1.5 RDA at 0.13 70w, Kensei RTA 0.13 braided at 70w and a Profile Unity RTA 0.16 55w
I really enjoy this off a shake, however the longer this is left the more the Custard comes through, 30 days steep will give you that pleasant rich and thick pudding background with the butterscotch and cheesecake well blended in
The backbone of this recipe is FW Butterscotch ripple at 8% this gives a pleasant butterscotch with a creamy background, to this FLV Butterscotch at 2% adds depth to the butterscotch while also making it more prominant, added at 1% it was still a little too light, 1.5% was a bit better but 2% was perfect and really boosts those buttery butterscotch notes as well as making the FW Butterscotch a little darker.
CAP NY Cheesecake at 2.5% adds depth and thickness to the cream that the FW brings to the table and makes this rich and smooth and pushes this towards a thick pudding dessert
FA Custard Premium added at 4% gives this a strong Vanilla egg custard that further enhances the butter in the butterscotch and adds a lot of depth and makes this more of a rich butterscotch pudding this is the absolute highest I would use the Custard Premium and only against concentrates that could take it without being overpowered.
A simple Humbug candy recipe, these are my wifes favourite sweet, I also recently found out that they are also considered a Christmas treat.
Leave for 24hrs for the Candy Cane to lose it's cloudiness and it's ready to vape, this has become my wifes ADV.
Tested on an Asmodus C4 0.28ohm single flapton at 65w and a Wotofo Profile Unity Mesh RTA at 80w
The main mint is provided by FW Candy Cane at 6.5% this gives a strong Peppermint as well as a hard candy like mouthfeel.
VT Vanilla Cream at just 0.5% is enough to add a little vanilla and some cream that I taste from a Humbug.
Finally FLV Marshmallow Vanilla adds a little more vanilla and works with the FW Candy Cane to enhance the mouthfeel a little more to give a nice thick and full mouthfeel just like a mouthfull of a Humbug as well as a slight 'chew' like the centre of a humbug if you are the type that crunches these up.
This is sweet enough without the Super Sweet for me so if you don't use sweetener in your juices feel free to leave off if you have a sweet tooth add it in at 0.25% to boost the sweetness a little for more of sweet tooth satsifying vape.
Everton Mint version of this coming soon
