Recipe Notes

It's a Cigar, with vanilla and a hint of Mango.

The goal here was to make a vanilla mango cigar that did not smack of "bottom of the display blunts" I wanted a solid mid-grade Caribbean type tobacco note. I think I did well, let me know your thoughts :)

Flavorah has done a superb job with their tobacco concentrates. IMO they raised the bar for tobacco concentrates and blurred the lines between NETs and imitations bringing a level of realism to the ersatz that boggles the mind.

FLV Cured - I have many times mentioned that this flavor is a "Generic cigarish tobacco" It is a really good base that is easy to bend into cigar or pipe. It does not lend well to cigarette outside of some fringe ROY bulks. Anyways here it is used as a base to build a cigar from.

FLV Connecticut Shade - If you have heard me talk about FLV much you have heard me say that this is a really good cigar wrapper leaf flavor. It has some really cool "offnotes" hints of coffee, chocolate, maybe a little spice(anise). It is a great building block for a cigar. Used here to lend a little more complexity to the profile. But mainly to bring hints of Caribbean tobacco to the table.

FLV Kentucky Blend - An interesting one. Another generic tobacco with hint of ash and a hint of smoke. Great for a cigarette type and also to lend a "smoking" to any tobacco blend.

FLV Virginia - A specific sweet virginia feel concentrate with the spicy "tongue bite" notes that accompany many Virginias. Used here to boost sweet and cut some of the dark from Kentucky Blend. But also for it's spicy notes to blend with the "mid-grade cigar" profile.

FLV Mango - Because Mango all the things, all the time. Used low here in relation to the strength of the profile. I just want a mango note to pop out here and there. This will change according to your airflow and power.

INW Sisha Vanilla - Because Vanilla all the things all the time. And also because FLV does not have a straight vanilla. I am using this specific vanilla for it's three characteristics and it's ability to stay present against a strong profile. It brings of course vanilla, a cream note to help lend a little more body and finally adds some more sweet without being cloying.

I shake and vape this, to be perfectly honest I have not had a bottle last over two weeks. It does change a little bit, tobacco gets more nuanced, vanilla comes forward a little more and the mango keeps playing in the background.

Edit: I have since mixed multiple large batches of this to experience it on the long steep. IS GOOD! It stays a mid-grade cigarish tobacco with hints of vanilla and mango. :) This mix is also really good without the Mango! If you are a deep steeper or sensitive to the way INW Shisha Vanilla keeps getting stronKer, cut it by 25% to 50%. I personally dont have an issue with it but some people do.
