I've been playing with this recipe for about 6 months, and I've finally got it tasting like I envisioned. It becomes a rather luxurious vape after a minimum 3 week steep. After that, it really showcases the rich taste of INW for pipe flavors. If you're a tobacco head, plan on making double what you're already considering, as you'll notice it goes quick,
If you don't have the original version of INW Gold Ducat, Gold for Pipe is a decent sub, however if you have something smokier and less sweet, give it a try at the same percentage.
So, I wanted this to be tobacco forward, and I ended up bringing the Black for Pipe a LOT from where I originally had it. The for pipe combo here really sets the tone of the mix. I also had originally used Gold for Pipe, but decided Ducat made it a little smokier and dirtier. Gold for Pipe was almost too sweet for the tobacco profile I wanted. FA Oakwood added another level of depth to the already dark and rich tobacco with it's subtle woodsy notes.
The custard part had always been CAP VC, but no matter the percentage, it just needed something else. That's where CAP Butter Cream came in. It was neutral tasting enough, and gave the custard base a bit more volume.
Fruit Loops with a twist of dragon fruit in a bed of thick milky cream.
I played around with a bunch of different creams and custards before landing on 2% FA Fresh Cream here. It provides a nice dense mouth feel and a sweet milky base for the cereal to sit in. After a couple weeks, the fruit and cereal flavors still hold strong, making for a nice sweet cereal vape.
Give it a few days for the fruitiness to calm down, after that it just gets thicker. The fruit is fairly intense here, feel free to back it down if preferred, but at these percentages, it really makes for a nice ADV with full flavor every time, even through a steep.
ONLY FOR THE OLDER VERSION OF INW GOLD DUCAT!
INW is changing their formulation for Gold Ducat. Shame. I've had this one locked up for a while longer than I should have.
The FA Caramel and TFA Brown Sugar are just added little bonuses for this recipe. Leave them out if you prefer and enjoy a solid pipe tobacco taste with notes of honey and syrup. Steep time based on your preference. To me, its OK overnight, but it does get better after a week, two weeks, and so on.

Tobacco heads love it. Tobacco haters say "Wow, that's tasty!"
A delicate balance with just enough sweetness to keep you dripping until the bottle's gone.
All Flavour Art, no substitutes.
FA 7 Leaves Ultimate serves as the tobacco base with slightly dry woodsy tobacco notes and hints of licorice, molasses, and spice. I had to really push this percentage to bring out the sweeter spice notes.
FA Desert Ship provides a touch of sweetness and adds depth to the tobacco base, almost fooling you into thinking you're vaping fresh moist pipe tobacco.
FA Fuji we all know about the wonderful FA Fuji. At 1 %, it adds a nice apple back note to the tobacco without taking over the mix.
FA Blackcurrant compliments the FA Fuji, brightening up the apple taste and adding some depth. If this was a a commercial juice, I think this ingredient would be tough to figure out. At 0.75%, you can't really tell it's there, but you would know you're missing something if it were to be left out.
Interesting and somewhat mysterious blend of dark red berries and a thick, sweet cream. Notes, comments, and flogging available here
