Butterscotch

I’ve just recently gotten back into DIY. I started DIY in 2015, went by the top 30 ratings. Prices dropped on ejuice so I started buying. Now I’m at retirement and coming back.
Wow!!! So many new flavors.
Butterscotch. I’ve been buying Blackbox’s White Gold. It’s a butterscotch similar to Werthers candy.
I got FW butterscotch, FW butterscotch ripple, flav butterscotch, FA BS. Also have as many caramels. ( don’t look in my flavor stash, I don’t list them)
How do you put the cream with it? I’ve tried. Come short. Need a heavy cream. I’ve tried my vape wizard, it helps, and sweet cream. Thought of sweet cream, Bavarian cream, cream fresh. I can’t stand vanilla custard, so please don’t suggest that one. Help!!!

I use a lot of FW & FW ripple. For my taste, I use Vanilla Ice Cream (LB) & Whipped Cream (FW).

Two great suggestions there. VIC (LB) is a great vanilla cream at low percentages, .5-1%, and above that it is, IMO, the best ice cream out there.

Cream Fresh (FA) is another good one, Van Pudding (FLV) will work well too.

I agree, I use them too. I’ve just recently started using the FLV Van. Pudding, need to reorder it already.

I actually have vanilla pudding by flavorah. I might give it a go! Everyone’s taste is different. I get a peppery kinda taste with vanilla bean ice cream. Wish I didn’t. Thank you for the info

Wonder if I would get the same peppery taste with LB ice cream? Is it way different from Capella?

(FW)Caramel Candy combined with the (FW) butterscotch ripple and then a combo of (FA)Vienna Cream and any dulce de leche is a possibility for Werther’s echte. Add a dash of vanillin if you want it thicker.

There’s many other combinations but I would go by this:

Every butterscotch needs a supportive caramel.
Every caramel needs a supportive butterscotch
Both need a neutral or enhancing cream.
Creams that have hints of the same nuances/“texture” can bring out nuances, can be more helpful and get more realistic results.

No pepper from LB VIC. It’s great stuff.

LB Ice Cream is totally different than CAP Vanilla Bean. More rich, Creamier and no Pepper taste to me.

You sure it was CAP and not TPA?
I get plenty pepper from TPA, never had it from CAP

The caramel I have puts a dark flavor that isn’t pleasing to me. Even mere drops.
I did try to make as your directions. Perhaps a good steep. I’m impatient with steeping. Always try juice before I put up, but then I usually forget about.

It was CAP, if it matters I got super burned out on vanilla custard by CAP too. Hard to find recipes without cap custard or strawberries. Lol

you get the pepper note fron Capella ?? hmmm i get it from the TPA at ANY percentages , but i could use the LB up to 3.75pct without detecting any of the pepper note after 3.75 the pepper comes in , but the Cap and LB are very different

I would argue a butter rum flavoring is essential for creating a butterscotch profile. If of course the flavor you seek is more the butterscotch (lifesaver) candy and not a “chewy” soft butterscotch (in which case i agree with using FW caramel candy as an additive) A good readily available Butter rum is Loranns version but careful it is strong! Start low around 0.17-0.25% , 0.5% if you have time and patience to off gas the alcohol/volatiles. My first choice for a butter rum would be from a relatively little known brand called Olive Nation. Butter rum olive nation is truer to my tastes and sits in a mix better. 4-5% would be my recommendation in a mix. Hope this helps you sort out your white whale :wink:

I’ll add butter rum LA and vbic LB in next order. I’m pleased with results I got with butterscotch, butterscotch ripple cream fresh sweet cream and sweetner. I also added some dulce de leche and vanilla pudding (flav), it seems Vape-able. Still needs backbone, maybe needing to steep. Lord I hate to steeping. Patience.
Butter Rum might be the ticket. (As I take a vape) yes.
Does anyone else vape as you mix?
I’ll have my dripper, mix, take a few drags, add more of ingredient I think lacks. Get it to my liking. Have noticed if I like it before a steep it’ll be that much better later.

Olive nation? Gotta look that one up. Order stuff through Bull city. Hate paying more for shipping than actual product. Do they have anything else that is decent?

I believe they have free shipping over 50$ and offer monthly discounts if you sign up. I am in Canada though so i always pay shipping and just order enough to split the cost up. Yes they have several very good flavors. Butter rum, Caramel, French Vanilla, malt, pineapple, blood orange , peach and blueberry are all very good. Keep in mind these are extracts and many are PG free (alcohol based) Usage is mostly between 3-5%

With white gold butterscotch, I believe there is no avoidance of vanilla custard. Yep had to buy again. Trying hard to distinguished the nuances. ( is that a word?) I taste it in there, slight but present.
