This e-liquid was a thing for me time ago and since then i tried to make a remix as close as possible but playing with coffee concentrates makes you hate mixing.
Now i think i got close enough to share it.
Salted Caramel Machiatto has a top heavy caramel/ Butterscotch note, bright and dark at the same time followed by a butter milky note and a lot of sweetener.. A LOT!! with a subtle coffee note lingering through the vape.
I have been trying a lot of coffee concentrates to find the exact one and finally realised that VTA Hard Crack Toffee is the coffee note in this e-juice and is not an actual coffee concentrate( this shit happens so much).
Coffee is barely noticeable in the original and so in this mix,
add 0.25% at a time to reach your own sweet spot. I personally like it more at 2-2.25% but trying to get close to the original 1.75% is enough.
They call for salted caramel but i get a Butterscotch sour tangyness with some bright Salted Caramel so thats what i did. I think the caramel note is better here than in the original while being a bit thicker and richer( not a bad thing though).
For the Milky Buttery Cream part im pretty sure its just VTA Coffee Milk Froth as its pretty subtle but noticeable and this flavour, with just a touch of it , delivers a nice rich butter creamy feeling.
The sweetness in this juice is nearly offensive for me now.. but back in the day i vaped just commercial juice and didn't think it was that high.
0.75% super sweet it quite spot on for my mix but i think 1% or even higher is used in the original helping that bitter/sour note i get that comes from super sweet.
So adjust to taste but 0.75%-1% is where you get closer to the original.
You can SNV as nothing needs to steep out or feels harsh or rough. I think its pretty tasty but after a week it gets better.
I may tweak some % as steeps a bit more so keep in mind this is not a 100% finished recipe.
I watch noted the other day @Alfredpudding mentioned that VTA Boysenberry was a straight on blue raspberry i had to try it out and F*ck man that was the missing link.
Lb Blue Raspberry is great but feels thin even at 8% but by adding 1.5-3% VTA Boysenberry you add more syrup without adding more water.
Wf Sour blue raspberry candy adds more blue raspberry flavour with candy texture while its a bit darker than LB's its really good.
1% Flv Berry blend is mainly to reinforce that berry background.
Add sweetener as desired i think it does better with 0.5% SS and 1% sweet candy, but it also goes really well with 0.75% Ss and no Sweet candy.
Ws-23 is optional i usually use it on my fruity mixes.
Stixx Mixx Dark fire = KENTUCKY VIRGINIAN as it isnt on ATF.
Vanilla milk and caramel with a hint of actual Kentucky flue cured tobacco leaf. This award-winning flavor can be best described as the King of Tobacco. A caramel vape-uccino with subtle tobacco on the exhale.
If you haven't got the DIYFS Holy Grail and Vanilla V1s you should do well with V2s, although it wouldnt have the same complexity it will still be pretty tasty and sure will be creamier.( mind that some % tweaking might be needed due to flavour muting and intesity of the concentrates)
I can't remeber the sweetness on the original Django but 0.25% super sweet or a low amount of other sweeteners will make the flavour more sarurated and full so it wont hurt feel free to adjust.
This ejuice has so much story behind .. Long story short,
TPD, Changed the eliquid flavour, NETs.
So if you enjoyed the original Django this is a Tribute to that eliquid trying to emulate every aspect we all enjoyed from it and sure you will enjoy now.
I have to give a special mention to @horizonism on ELR for all the effort put to recreate the original Django over the years,
hope you will enjoy this one.
•Capellas Vanilla Custard V1: im using v1 instead of v2 mostly for the steep time( pretty sure v2 was in the original mix), v2 needs over 4 weeks to get rid of the butiryc acid note. If you want to avoid DAAP use v2.( be ready to let it sit at least for a month)
•Stixx Mixx Kentucky Virginian:
This is not in the original mix but is the closest i could find and it resembles quite well the kentucky tobacco used in Django with dark woody notes.
1% is pretty low for a NET concentrate but OG Django wasn't really a full tobacco vape and it will be very present in the vape.
Mix & Steep:
The original Django was a 60VG/40PG but this mix will also do well in 70VG/30PG.
I Suggest at least a week of steep but its better after 10-15 days.
Best results after 20-30 days.
What happens when you mix some of the best in their kind?
Tasty SNV Berry Juice!
I like my fruit mixes with Ws-23 so forget this part or adjust to your likings as well as the sweetener.
0.5% CAP super sweet is all you need but feel free to add more if you want to, it only will get more towards commercial e-juice.
Frangelico is a Hazelnut Liqueur with sweet bright notes of vanilla and hazelnut, and deep warm cocoa and coffee undertones. The texture Is on the side on creamy and rich but not thick.
Descriptionof the Liqueur:
Pronounced but delicate hazelnut.
Flavour with hints of vanilla and dark chocolate.
Smooth long finish, with fragrant back-note.
The richness of Frangelico is rooted in its origins. Made from the aromatic Tonda Gentile hazelnuts found in the Italian region of Piedmont, they are combined with coffee, cocoa and vanilla distillate and extracts for a sweet yet balanced golden elixir.
Welcome to the 70's.
A hazy purple funk all dressed up in a kaleidoscope of bell bottoms, bandanas, and tie-dye. A time when psychedelic, glam and heavy metal rock blasted from mega speakers at fairgrounds, stadiums and garages.
Can you dig it? The take a good long pull of Monster Ultra Violet. Crisp and refreshing, with a sweet and tart pixie dust flavor powered with our Monster Energy Blend.
To make the purple juice i used TPA Grape Juice and MB Queen Grapes while they are pretty similar, i think using both they make a fuller purple juice.
VTA Grape Juice for the bottom flavour and tart pixie stick notes
Is perfect also has a bubble gum flavour that sells the Energy drink profile perfectly in combination with FLV Pink Guava wich adds the grapefruit tart notes and that overall fake fruity vibe monster drinks have.
This type of drinks are really sweet and served chilled so 0.75% Super Sweet and 2% Ws23 fit perfectly as cooling and sweetness balance each other but feel free to adjust the cooling.
Smoked Butterscotch Latte kind of what starbucks makes.
VTA Coffee Milk Froth, Caffe Latte and Hard Crack Toffee each of them have subtle coffee notes; with them three we get that slight coffee note you get in this type of coffees.
Also each of of them add their own qualities, heavy delicious rich cream and caramel.
For the Butterscotch part 3% FW Butterscotch Ripple with 0.5% FLV Smoked Butterscotch and the added dark caramel/coffee notes from VTA's concenrates is all you need.
Now our Smoked Butterscotch blend is ready.
Sweetness in this beverages is quite high so if you like sweet commercial style vapes as well as highly sweetened coffee drinks 0.75% super sweet also works really well, but i think 0.5% is enough.
Walnut Ice Cream with caramel drizzle.
First the name, this is a Holy Nuts ice Cream beacuse i'm using the (Holy) Trinity of Vanilla ice cream (wich is awsame) and Nuts is for Fa Nut mix as is a generic nut flavour leading more towards a walnut flavour than other nuts. I think that using this combined you get a pretty nice upfront "walnut" ice cream.
The caramel drizzle is made by FW Butterscotch Ripple and WF Caramel Butter wich together add a nice drizzle of caramel on top this Holy Nuts Cream.
Sweet candy peach smokeless tobacco, kinda dipping tobacco style.
Flv Peach at 4% is full on candy style peach all over the vape.
To make the dark chewy molasses taste i used FLV Lovage , Caramel and Cured to add a sweet deep, earthy and wet tobacco.
This is helped out with Virginia for the sweet leafy taste and Tatanka wich at 4% makes the whole tobacco sweeter, wet and helps with the brown sugary molasses.
Added a touch of FLV Sweetness as i like it sweet but you can omit this.
