This is my work in progess adv recipe, Toffee coffee cake tobacco.
Trying to get a full bodied tobacco as main note, with toffee on the exhale, and coffee cake after taste. Shooting for a sweet burly tobacco that is not to earthy and dry.
The tobacco doesnt seem to be coming through very well, and the tiramisu seems to not be as strong as Id like. I tried increasing both but it didnt come out to well. Even though rich cin is noted as very potent, I cant really taste it. Id prefer to keep it low percentage, these flavors are pretty dark.
I’d suggest dropping the Red Burley to a max of 0.45% and the Mild Tobacco to 0.65%. It would also be sensible to take the Toffee down a bit to around 0.45 - 0.55%, with the Rich Cinnamon also dropping to 0.08%
I can’t advise on the Aged Burley or Tiramisu: Never used them. Although, I could see Caramel Mocha (VTA) and Toffee Ice Cream (VTA) working with 0.15% Connecticut Shade.
Gotcha, maybe too much is muting it. The Cshade from flv? think i have some of that left, pretty potent stuff. The caramel mocha does come out a bit burnt, guess ill play with it at low %, thanks for the tips. Ive found the stixxmix to be a slow steeper, sort of gives the delayed gratification of a pipe vibe.
Maybe you want to consider up to 0.75% FA Up for the coffee cake. It needs a two weeks steeping but could be a better choice than the Tiramisu.
I haven’t tried it with Tobacco but in other combinations and it gave a nice coffee cake at low percentages.
I concur on the Toffee Ice Cream but personally I wouldn’t even bother with the Mild tobacco (FLV). I don’t have experience with the Aged Burley (Stixx Mixx) but FLV Red Burley is a fav of mine. Cardinal by Fear uses a great combo of Red Burley (FLV) 0.75% paired with Kentucky Blend (FLV) 0.25%. Have you thought of using a black coffee like Brazilian Coffee (SC) (WF) or Espresso (VSO)? Being a coffee lover, those two are always in my rotation. There will be no mistaken the presence of coffee. If you prefer to keep the cinnamon subdued you can get a cake flavor with a touch of cinnamon using Baked Cinnamon Roll (OSDIY). Are you in the states? A couple of those flavors might be hard to get overseas?
ETA: If so, CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl will do at around 2% but you might need to boost the cake with something. Yellow Cake (JF) might do it for you but I’ve never vaped the juice you’re talking about so it’s hard to guess.
I mess a lot around with baccos, you all know that in Italy is a hype, so I mix and do my own extraction, and coffees, well… you know italians.
With that kind of profile from my point of view @SteveTC is right, FA Dark bean paired with a decent cookie, is a lot better then FA Tiramisu, that practically has got no coffee in it, ot just a useless dash. DB has to be kept very low, but it’ll come out in the long run and a lot better.
IMHO Burley is going to get killed by strong flavours like coffees and butterscotch and it defo won’t shine, you’ll have to go with stronger tobaccos, like Kentucky, cigars and the like.
Itt was so funny reading this 3d, coz I’m just helping some friends on cloning a very similar profile, here is the 3d, it’s in italian, but you can see the recipes, and use a translator, it’ll give you some hints.
Instead of the layer Maxx Blend/Black Fire, that it’s there because we are “cloning” the OG, you might go for FLV Red Burley, a fav of mine, but has to balanced correctly, start at .75, can be paired with KY or Sweet Cigarette, if you want it ashy or a great classic… Milk and honey it’ll mellow all the recipe out.
On my recipe I also did a few variations using a Cohiba Siglo II, and Tuscan Reserve by FA,
just to see where it can go with stronger flavors and it kept a good balance.
Sttep, I used my own GC, but expect around 15/20 days to steep, all flavours that need it!!
Na, havent used comercial juice for a few years. Just trying to combine my favorite types of flavors with a tobacco. Usually do tobaccos in the fall season. Testing out a mix based on sudgestion now. Kind of digging this cin danish swirl, added some native flv, with panut butter and jungle flavors biscuit. I think that tiramisu fa was muting everything else.
I remember being disappointed in Tiramisu. I used to use CDS with a Cavendish NET years ago and really liked the combo. Good luck on your mix. Sounds like it’s coming along. Just wondering, have you ever used Cuban Supreme (FA)? Not sure if it would be strong enough for you but it’s got a nice flavor that works well with bakeries and creams.
The C shade is a bit funky to me, not really the sort of tobacco I like. Im sure its a quality flavor that is good for mixing, but I get this weird soysause vibe. Prefer sweeter ones. One of my first juices I bought back in the day was a juice called QUIT Burley, and I never could figure out what they used to make it. Pretty strong sweet earthy taste with a hint of caramel.
