My mate travels to the US on a semi-regular basis, mainly Las Vegas, and found his favourite all time juice.
We can get it imported in the UK but it is absolutely extortionate.
I have searched the Internet but cannot find a clone. Is anybody aware of one? Not only am I trying to get it for my mate, I’m dying to try it myself since he’s going on about it that much!!!
I’m not aware of any direct clones, but if you’re looking to give it a go yourself, I would start by looking at some of the
recipes here, and see if any of them look like they’d fit the flavor profile you’re looking for. I’d especially look at any of the ones by @Josephine_van_Rijn or @Kinnikinnick as they have a lot of experience with tobaccos. Good luck!
Thanks JoJo. I’ll give them a look. I’m new to DIY and am really keen to understand how flavour profiles work with each other. I’d far rather do it myself than just follow a recipe.
Is there anywhere I can read about flavour profiles and trying to understand mixing with them? Things like recognising what types of flavours are being used in a juice I am using.
I am an avid Scotch whisky collector (and drinker) and love building flavour profiles of new whisky and I’m hoping I will enjoy the same thing with juices.
So many you won’t know what to do with yourself!

Getting Started in DIY Guides
So many times we get a newbie request to help rescue a wayward recipe. Most of the time the problem boils down to vendors flavor choice and usage percentage. We are hoping this proactive approach will give the newbies a resource to make better flavor purchases and the ability to see usage percentages and how others pair the flavors in recipes. We also hope the newbies take advantage of this resource and try some of these popular flavors instead of depending on one vendor for all their flavor nee…
Flavor Pairing is a very essential part of cooking, mixed drinks, and now Ejuice blending. In our forum here I have seen mention here and there of favor pairing but no topic on the subject. I think the time is right for such a topic. Let me start with a favor that is often left out when seeing info on flavor pairing, BUTTERSCOTCH.
Butterscotch pairs well with as follows
Dark Chocolate, Banana, Brown Sugar, Cranberry, Cherry, Vanilla, Cookies, Nuts, Coffee, Caramel, Whipped Cream, Whiskey, N…
There’s some great advice in this thread:
Been mixing as often as I can and I still can't manage to make anything besides things I copy from others recipes, it's a tough life learning to mix with ADD. I've got enough flavors to choke a horse and just can't keep it together on one idea long enough to make it get any where and when I go back it seems to get worse. I'd share my flavor list but I can't remember how at the moment. Going to try and pick one thing and just mess around with it, tried with cheesecake but man I ended up way out …
And this post:
Lots of good advice here. The way I have been coming up with my latest recipes is I think of something I want to make. Let’s come up with something on the fly… How about a Strawberry and Banana type dessert… What’s in it? Strawberries, Bananas, Cake, or Cookie, or what have you. Whipped cream, ice cream. I will start with the fruit… I have lots of Strawberry flavors to play with in
My Stash. Flavorah Strawberry sounds good. And is one I have never used. So let’s research it. Click i…

@DarthVapor recommends a copy of The Flavor Bible.
Hope that will at least get you started.

I really appreciate you taking the time.
