I appreciate all the thinking you’ve done on the subject.
Since i finish writing this post i’m reading everything i find avalible about flavors. I’m actually familiar with tobacco , at least real tobacco , i’m talking about the real plant. I grew up in a small ranch full of tobacco plantation. What i’m trying to get now is this fantastic world of tobacco flavours that i’ve never imagined was so complex. I see you’ve put some thoughts on the recipe , so did i. I agree with you about the carolina tobacco being sub with “the right” virginia flavor. It’s well understood that the recipe is going for a mild sweet tobacco taste ( at least that’s what i thought ). But i’ve found the recipe that the screenshot was taken , and for my deception , it’s a clone recipe , an attempt to reproduce famous tobacco e liquid. One i’m not real keen about.
But nothing is lost here , this exercise has being amazingly good for my knowledge improving.
One thing about the recipe and you have mention this as well, is the kentucky ratio in the recipe. I was trying to figure out whats the odds you’ve mention , usually kentucky ( not the real extract ) is described as bit spicy , mild and may or may not have sweet notes, with some brands even a tiny choco after taste is related. I hope i’m not being naive here but the nicvape version is very well reviewd for it’s real mild light tobacco taste , with no additional aromas. And now that i know what was the final goal with the recipe, that mainly is to replicate the famous liquid version of the light stink sticks ( the light version of the horse one ), i might have some findings:
This recipe is not about the nutty thing on the tobaccos , since carolina and kentucky version from nicvape are very peculiar. Kentucky from nicvape is very different from other brands, i’m not saying it’s better or worse as i gave never tried it . What i did was reading throught hundreds of reviews to find that the nicvape kentucky is very unique, very tobacco taste with no overpowered sweet or nutty aromas even at 8-12% and also that if combined with the carolina tobacco , it could result in the taste that a lot of fresh ex smokers are looking for when they start vaping. Is this case the emulated taste that i’ve mentioned above. One more addition to your thoughts and i fully agree with you is that caroline could be sub with a flue cured virginia from other brand, pretty sure the author was chasing that virginia feels that the horse brand uses in its protuct.
All the smooth and rounding flavors he uses , i need more study as i’m not familiar with them , i know their role in a recipe but only in theory.
And finally to conclude i wont give up on doing this , i have already ordered dozen of flavors , from flv , inw and fa ( the only brands available in my country ), and i will start batching this up next week , after the steeping time i will have more useful notes to share. I will do my best to give back the way i can all the respect and friendship i’ve received since day one here. I will work my ass off to make myself useful to the comunity.
About Nets - the thing i vape the most nowadays , we do have a net brand in my country , they are good , as far as they can get being the only net vendors here and having the rush to attend a huge number of orders. Things are done faster than they should be , they are good indeed.
But about nets i would be more eligible to talk about at the end of the year when my extracts will be ready to filter and steep.
GD i spend all my crunch and grunge english on this post …i’m tired of thinking…jesus…
Ps - i’m doing a few changes on the original recipe , i loved the description of the aged bourbon cream from real flavor, but of course it’s not available in my country. So i will have to emulate this one too.
I’m thinking for the aged barrel thing , an oak mixed with and a non sweet nut ( inawera ) flavor should be the starting point , for the bourbon i have 3 in mind : flv bourbon , tfa kentucky bourbon and FA whiskey ( or a mix of then ) for the cream i’m thinking about bavarian cream , i don’t want too much flufyness and bavarian cream i undertand is not a fluffy cream favor ( any other suggestion for the cream , is very welcome )
