Recipe Notes

Creamy, rich butterscotch inhale, followed by a buttery, smooth vanilla custard exhale, with notes of tobacco, maple and brown sugar.

Pairs well with ales, stouts and dark beers, from complimenting sweet, earthy, and savoury flavours.

Notes:

RY4 Double (TPA): One of the sweeter tobacco's flavours with notes of caramel and vanilla. It's slightly earthy, nutty, a tad smokey, and just a great mellow tobacco flavour. Can be a bit dry on the exhale but we can balance that out.

Butterscotch (FLV): Very spot on butterscotch taste, although it's not very creamy nor is it very sweet. The use of the additional caramel's add to the body and depth of the butterscotch profile. At 3% it's presence is unmistakable.

Brown Sugar (TPA): Used mainly for it's sweetness but also for it's similar compounds that help boost the existing caramel and butterscotch notes.

Vanilla Custard (CAP): I have tried using other custards, (FA, TPA, FLV) and although each were good, they just... well aren't CAP's vanilla custard. I have a hard time not resorting to using CAP's v1 but at least I gave it a shot. It's buttery, very rich, creamy, tasty and just works so well here. It's really the body, the backbone of this recipe, but can easily be swapped out for a different custard profile. Although, I don't suggest it.

Acetyl Pirazine (TPA): Is used to round out the tobacco and increase it's roasted and nutty profile.

Optional: Sweetener

Sorry ahead of time but this one does require a steep. Mix it up, shake it up, put it in that special place and forget about it. I promise it'll be well worth the wait. This is not intended to be an everyday vape as this recipe does contain mostly concerning flavours. Enjoy it on special occasions or once and a while. I have been aging 2 batches, 1 to test at monthly intervals and the other has yet to be opened. So far 6+ months and this vape is just incredible.
