almond caramel cream.
wf vanilla ruyan custard- this flavor is a workhorse. i honestly prefer it solo around 6-7%, but it pairs great with ry4s and other creams. it's primarily a vanilla, secondarily a texture/mouthfeel booster- it reminds me of what inw's creme brulee would be if it didn't get weird over 0.5%- it's got such a full body to it. oddly- it's nothing like cap's VC1, largely because it's vapable immediately and doesn't seem to change much with a steep. this is the base flavor in this recipe because it's a solid body foundation but it doesn't bully the top notes.
inw custard- what can i say about this flavor that hasn't already been said. it's great, again doesn't require much steeping, and provides lovely body. helps fill out the ruyan custard here and helps the vanilla not be so dominant.
jf's ry4- probably the best ry4 out there. less steeping, more depth of flavor. mostly a warm caramel note.
(top notes) inw's marzipan & fa's almond- this combo is sweet almond bliss. that twangy cherry note from the marzipan fades after 12-24 hours, hence the teensy steep time. they mesh effortlessly with the custards and caramel ry4- it's a delightful combo.
side note/how's it vape, mahfucka?: this juice is super similar to those standard ry4/custard/nut combo recipes we all love: dillinger's dairy, pistachio ry4, gentleman's custard- if that profile is appealing to you, you'll love this one. the difference here is that this recipe is ready to vape almost immediately. i'm not yanking yer chain. honestly most of the wonder flavors i've tried have that in common, their inclusion in a recipe, or even just solo; they are damn near shake & vapable. i'm not unaware of the discourse re: their potential sugar content, or whatever- i just don't care. shrug
fig's all grown up! fig smokes cigarettes with his friends and stays up too late! fig didn't finish college because he started working in the service industry and just partied all the time instead of going to classes! fig ends up working in an office cubicle surrounded by people he hates who he's sure make more money than he does! fig questions his own existence and writes sad poetry! fig doesn't sleep well anymore!
so. this is a fig tobacco that's got a nice roastyness to it and a sweet mouthfeel. flv's cured tobacco is really great, it boosts the soho and adds depth. soho is clearly a favorite of mine, it has a caramelly, better-than-ry4 vibe to it, and meshes really well with other tobaccos. cap's fig is dark and sweet and has a stone fruit/dark berry note that pairs beautifully with tobacco- it's a lovely, earthy combo. if you like tobaccos, you'll like this. this is my V2 and i feel like it's mostly done. if i change anything it might be to boost the nuttyness in some way but i'm unsure if it's even necessary- this is great as it is.
this is my go to juice, and it's delicious. it's my 3rd and final version.
the butter pecan is definitely the base note. it's buttery. it's nutty. what more can you want. fw has this flavor on lock for sure. i put it in a lot of stuff, but it's best when it's the star. contrary to popular belief it does NOT need 5 million years steep time. 3 days, it's great. after 7 days that's about the best it'll ever get. i've worked with 3 different batches of this recipe over the course of 6 weeks, and vaped it almost daily, i'm confident.
i used both tpa and cap vbic because sometimes tpa's gives me weird off notes over 2%, but i like it's vanilla more than caps. i've tried it with all of either one and it was fine, really quite good- even with all tfa the butter pecan tends to cover over the off notes for me- but this version is the best in my opinion. bavarian cream is meant to give a little more body, and i've used both jf and fw's, and i prefer jf's. the holy vanilla boosts the ice cream, as does the butterscotch ripple. i'll thank kocanada for that trick. butt rip goes in almost all my ice cream recipes now thanks to him.
the soho inclusion is hard for me to explain or even describe- soho is sweet and feels like heavy caramel to me. it's like a better, rounder ry4 to me, and maybe that's weird or wrong, but i love it. it has a light tobacco touch, that to me is reminiscent of fresh pack of camels- not current camels- camels about 12 years ago. is it just me or did they use to smell and taste a lot better? anyway like i said, this recipe reaches it's peak after 7 days but it's vapable and damn enjoyable at 3.
edit one thing i forgot to include, because i never included it in my percentages, is 2-3 drops Acetyl Pyrazine per 30 ml. it's crucial to the nutty aspect. an option add in is 2 drops CAP Super Sweet- that's up to you.
sweet home, alabama- we sure do love some blue bell ice cream down here and butter pecan is my favorite. we are also 4% higher in smokers than the national median here. what can i say, it's a struggle living in the bible belt. enjoy, yall!
I really love this recipe and feel proud of it. This is a coffee tobacco vape that's delicate and doesn't beat you over the head with it's pungency. INW's Cappucino Tobacco is best in smaller amounts, it's a strong sweet coffee that has rich roasted coffee bean/fancy ass cafe vibe to it- it's got a teensy bit of creaminess to it on it's own but not much, and isn't super nutty. The throat hit is a 3- 4 out of 10 and can be a bit dry solo.
Paired with fresh cream/Bavarian Cream it gets a better mouthfeel and overall coffee flavor is improved- just like your normal cup of coffee, really. Unless you're a black coffee person, in which case...sigh.
Holy vanilla is an accent; it's strong to me, in a good way. Again, not trying to bash your head in with anything here. Balance and subtlety seem to be a lost art in almost everything these days, but that's what I'm aiming for.
The Soho is meant as an accent to the CT because both are fairly weak on the tobacco spectrum- Soho is even sweeter than RY4 and has roastyness to it, but again, not super nutty. It acts as a caramel flavored creamer to your fancy ass coffee. Great with breakfast, of course. Enjoy!
