Smooth and buttery Bourbon Custard with toasted almond and sweet coconut notes.
Could've called it Cotto's Revenge Bourbon Custard Remix as its truely based on all those 2015-16 clones that were running around about that eliquid back in the day.
It was a very smooth custard with the same notes i love from castle long, the toasted almond, coconut and Bourbon.
In this recipe i just changed the coconut and tweaked the precenteges to nowadays DIY Mixing needs.
In this recipe the idea was to recreate what this image shows.
A sweetened honey milk with a floating toasted almond crunch.
So for the milk base i went the classic route with 2% Bavarian Cream and 1% Vanilla swirl, easy simple yet efective.
To add a honey sweetness vibe Milk & Honey is perfect dark sweetness for this mix.
And to make the Roasty almonds a combination between FA Almond and CAP Cereal 27 did the trick for a crunchy roasted almond.
Sweet Vanilla Cream Tobacco
FLV Cured and FLV Classic cigarette together make an earthy classic cigarette styled tobacco, with the addition of DYFS Holy Vanilla we give the entire blend a sweet malted vanilla cream flavour.
With this three is quite nice but i added 1% FLV Cream to get a luxurious velvelty vanilla cream.
Sweet bourbon cream with
notes of spicy vanilla and toffee.
“Inspired by a Native American name for a white snowshoe rabbit,” Nooku is a new bourbon cream made with only two ingredients — bourbon and real cream.
"Look for a pale cream color and a heavy, milk-like consistency in Nooku's original Bourbon Cream. There's a familiar dairy aroma with light-eggy, rich, and spicy vanilla notes. On the palate, the milkiness of the liqueur prevails, but the more you sip, the easier it is to locate the whiskey flavor and hints of toffee. It has a nice texture, though it does go on the side of creamy with only a slight touch of whiskey heat".
TPA Kentucky Bourbon and TPA VBIC are well known friends, but i didnt want too much ice cream flavour so 2% is enough to add light-egg and vanillla.
The addition on FLV cream turns this to a velvety milky cream, that coats your palate.
VTA Toffe ice Cream adds creamy and buttery toffee notes, while FLV Vanilla bean reinforces the vanilla notes turning them deeper and spicier.
MIX & STEEP :
60/40 is best so it does not get too thick.
Yo can SnV but after 3-5 days it's where it starts to be what is supposed to.. so leave it as much as you need from there it only will get better (+15 days is best)
Chocolate Virgina Tobacco
( All Flavorah Recipe)
This was my go to hand-rolling blend and i think this mix nails the most remarcable notes i remember from back in the day.
Golden virginia is a sweet, smooth blend and i always smelled a dark chocolate note when opening a new bag, thats why we have Chocolate deutsch in the mix also helps smoothing out the finish.
Virginia was an obvious one, this concentrate is pretty one dimensional so here just adds the sweet and bright virginia leafy notes.
The main tobacco of the mix is Cured, as a generic tobacco filling is the best, also plays wonders with Red Burley, both giving each other complexity and some chocolate - nutty nuances.
To add that little extra notes of realism i used Cream and Sweet Cigarette.
Golden Virginia is a super smooth blend, quite sweet with the smoke being dense but yet soft and slightly ashy :
0.8% Cream and 0.2% Sweet cigarette nail this part.
Mix / Steep:
I suggets 70/30 to get an extra smooth vape but 60/40 is also really nice.
You can SnV or either leave it 3-5 days to settle down but as always with FLV Tobaccos after 2 weeks they come back in a really nice and nuanced way.
(All Flavorah recipe)
Kentuky blend is my personal favourite is slightly ashy, woodsy, spicy and with a sweet caramel vibe, here is the main note.
To support it a bit of red burley to keep the earthy tobacco vibe and a touch of virginia to add brightness and sweetnes.
Flv Bourbon adds a nice bourbon sweetness and taste, as well as , a noticeable charred oak, and to make it even more present im using Oak barrel wich gives a cleaner oak top note.
To me FLV Oak Barrel tastes like an old, still wet(altough its quite dry) from storing bourbon, dark wood like taste.
And to smooth out everthing a bit of cream.
Steep Time: You can Snv or either leave it 3-5 days, but after 2 weeks is when flavorah tobaccos come back and bourbon reaches it full potential.
Mix at: 70Vg/30Pg
This ratio is best as 50/50-60/40 are a bit throughty and thin in my opinion.
Also this extra VG adds some sweetness but feel free to choose.
Back to the basic RY4 profile we all loved at a time.
Ry4 Double, Caramel original and Graham Cracker Clear make a sweet dark caramel, vanilla, graham falvour.
Fa Butterscotch makes everything deeper, creamier and blends a bit better the nutty part with the caramel and graham notes.
And finally AP adds nutty qualities as well as more texture to the graham note.
Super sweet is optional but really adds to the caramel/nutty vibe.
Grape Hard Candy Lemonade
Grapey purple syrup served on a bubbly super sweetened lemonade.
Super sugary sweet, purply and fresh.
Super straight forward and simple recipe i wanted to post for halloween. ( yes, purple party drinks remind me of halloween)
Ps: Nothing scares more a vaper than the amount of sweetener in this recipe.
I HATE to make such long recipes but this one needed to be like this.
What i wanted for this profile was a milky creamy taste and chocolate/peanut butter flavour like they have been drenched like a syrup on the glass.
Also some cruchy notes like you're drinking straight from the cup on the image and not from the straw, and as more you vape it, you loose a bit of that crunch and you have the sensation of being drinking now from the straw.
For the cream base i wanted a milky, creamy, thick and rich milkshake so i used a classic mix such as: Fa Cream Fresh, TPA Vanilla swirl and TPA Bavarian Cream but the cream was still a bit soft for what i wanted so i added CAP V1 Vanilla Custard and Boom! The milkshake base worked perfectly.
For the peanut butter part i used TPA Peanut Butter Dx, and FlV peanut butter at just 0.25% as everything higher added too much dry peanut top notes.
FA Cookie gives the crunchy notes and adds to the milkshake base.
Obviously JF Milk Chocolate as the chocolate syrupy flvour that blends with the milk.
At least a week of steep for everything to blend together and from 2-4 weeks and on it only gets better.
