    Thanks @Andre! Yes TFA Vanilla Bourbon or INW Shisha Vanilla can do the job although I do not know for sure as I have not tried it.

    I have used TFA Vanilla Bourbon in place of DFS Holy Vanilla before the latter became available locally. And to good enough effect.

    Blackberry & Lime Fool
    Smashed blackberries folded into thick, sweet cream.

    I set out to replicate a traditional fool which is a very simple & delicious dessert which involves folding pureed or stewed fruit into sweet cream or custard.

    FA Vienna cream provides the main, sweet and creamy base bolstered by a smidgen of FLV cream to take it to the next level of uber creamy goodness. A spot of marshmallow to fluff and sweeten things up and we are good to go!

    The simplicity and brilliance of FW Blackberry Is put to the test here and works perfectly to provide a fresh, juicy blackberry flavor. The CAP Lemon Lime compliments and balances the creaminess and fruitiness with finesse.

    Being cream heavy, this baby needs at least 7 days to shine, 10 days best.

    Blackberry & Lime Fool
    2.5% (FW) Blackberry
    1% (FLV) Cream
    1% (CAP) Lemon Lime
    2% (TPA) Marshmallow
    2%(FA) Vienna Cream

    Is this for a 30ml mix or is it higher?

    Sticky Nuts
    Smooth almonds coated with sticky caramel toffee.

    FA Almond is the undisputed king of almonds and sits proudly as the chieftain here. It fulfills the role of nut (duh) but more importantly, it adds a delicious creaminess and in doing so, blends seamlessly with the toffee to create a fabulously thick and creamy toffee.

    FW Hazelnut boosts the nuttiness a tad and assists further with the overall, nutty, creamy feel.

    Caramel Toffee and English toffee has been my go-to caramel/toffee flavour for quite some time now and is just a phenomenal combo. It’s versatility is boundless and this is my maiden voyage by using it with a nut base. It does a splendid job in creating a thick and creamy toffee with zero off notes.

    This baby needs 5 days to come together and will just improve with a longer steep.

    Sticky Nuts
    1.5% (FA) Almond
    1.5% (HS) Caramel Toffee
    1.5% (VT) English Toffee
    0.5% (FW) Hazelnut

    Pleased to find out that sticky nuts are a real thing.

    I am going to break my "rule" of not rushing out to buy new concentrates when a new recipe arrives. This is only because almost all of @Rude Rudi 's recipes have appealed to my particular taste.

    Many thanks.

    I bet that with a few tweaks, this can be morphed into an awesome milkshake/ice cream recipe as well?

    Yesterday I placed my order. 5 minutes later this recipe appeared on ATF. At least the Caramel Toffee was on the list. Already have ideas what to do in the place of English Toffee.

    Cartoffee
    A delectable, rich & smooth caramel & toffee infusion...

    I set out to create a toffee and caramel forward custard infused with slight notes of tobacco. Versions included the FLV Red Burley & Kentucky Blend but it distracted form the main profile, so I omitted them for this version.

    There is not much to say about the undisputed kings of caramel RY4's other than it is just superb as a preambulatory 'tobacco' for novice and veteran mixers alike. Adding delectable, but subtle, caramel infused RY4 note, it lays the foundation masterfully. This work well with V2 at 8%.

    I'm using my go to caramel/toffee combo in HS Caramel Toffee & VT English Toffee. A thick and creamy caramel toffee which adds adds oodles of sweetness & richness with no butyric vibes.

    My faithful custard adds a rich & creamy custard and is fortified with a shot of vanilla, compliments of INW Shisha Vanilla.

    Feel free to add .75 FLV Red Burley to increase the tobacco notes.

    Give this baby 5 days or do to mingle & enjoy!

    Cartoffee
    1.5% (HS) Caramel Toffee
    2% (INW) Custard
    1.5% (VT) English Toffee
    6% (DFS) HOLY HOLY GRAIL RY4
    1% (INW) Shisha Vanilla

    Thank you for the share, Can tell just by looking at it this will become an ADV for me. As soon as I am able to lay my hands on some Nic I am mixing 200ml of this.

    @Rude Rudi I mixed some a while ago and was meaning to ask you about it. My wife and I both experienced it as quite a "dry" feeling vape, the flavour is good but it has almost a chalky feel to it. I also mixed the toffee custard and got much the same effect (although the Cartoffee had much better flavour in general). Keep in mind that a commercial juice led to the mixing of many custard based recipes to find a replacement, so that is pretty much what the reference point has been in terms of mouthfeel. Is there any way to get it to a point where you have that thick, full, creamy mouthfeel? I know everyone always make the joke about commercial juices just loading up on sweetener, but would that have such an effect on the feel of the vape?

    **EDIT** for reference purposes, it was vaped in a Serpent Elevate and an Intake single coil.

    I can almost guarantee @Rude Rudi is using a flavour banger RDA and not a RTA. Most experienced mixers use drippers for accurate reference flavour. I personally use my RDA for testing and my RTA for everyday vaping.

    Using a RDA will increase saturation but its not always the most practical or available solution so the easiest thing would be to add some sweetener. I know Rudi doesn't really like sweetener much (especially CAP Super Sweet) but adding 0.25% for starters and upping from there if needed could make a significant difference.

    Regarding the mouth-feel and saturation of commercial juices, it's safe to assume that the majority of them have at least some sweetener in them. Obviously some tobaccos would be an exception. Enhancers such as sweetener, citric acid, acetyl pyrazine, WS-23, TFA Smooth/FA MTS Vape Wizard and so on can all be the missing touch to a recipe.

    This is where recipe development is a painstaking process. Making something that you're happy with is one thing, making recipes that everyone's happy with is impossible :p

    My advice is to add a dash of sweetener first as that's the most likely thing to remedy the dryness you're referring to...

    Holy grail does tend to give a bit of a dry taste, add between 0.25-0.35% cap super sweet and it will sort it out for you.

    @CJB85
    Yes, I only use RDA's which produce a fuller, more accurate flavour delivery. Yes, I suggest a tad of sweetener to counter the chalkiness as suggested by @takatatak or perhaps a bit of marshmallow/meringue.

    Thanks @Rude Rudi I will give it a shot, one with meringue, one with Marshmallow.
    I have two RDA's and a squonk mod paid for, but alas the lockdown is preventing it from being shipped.
