    Use Red burley (flv) as your starting point.

    Try play around with some INW Tobacco Kent. It's in the somewhere.

    Just some feedback on my Quest for a VCT clone so far.

    First one i mixed was this Recipe:
    Smooth Famous Tobacco

    FA 7 Leaves Ultimate 2%
    TFA Acetyl Pytazine 0.3%
    INW Biscuit 0.8%
    TFA Ethyl Vanillin 0.2%
    FA Hazelnut 0.5%
    FA Jamaican Rum 1%
    TFA Sweet Cream 1.2%
    TFA Toasted Almond 0.3%
    FA Torrone 0.2%
    TFA Vanilla Swirl 1.8%

    Even at 0.3% the Acetyl Pyrazine over powers the entire juice, i know its still early in the steep, so i hope it settles in a week or 2. The background notes on this recipe is reminiscent of VCT, but very feint. Will do a mix without the Acetyl and will change and up the tobacco to Either Red Burley or Tobacco Absolute 50%.

    The second one i tried (Thanks @lesvaches !!!)
    on smell alone this smells very very very very close to the OG VCT, not going to taste this one till after 3 weeks, will keep you all posted.

    Just a quick update, this morning, or day 3-of-the-ridiculously-long-wait-for-the-steep-to-finish, the Strong smell from the Acytel Pyrazine has diminished quite a lot and the background notes are more prominent to the nose. will test vape in a week.

    I love tobaccos, it's pretty much what I vape everyday and what has kept me off the stinkies. I do enjoy the occasional fruity or bakery or custardy vape, but they just don't give me the satisfaction a good tobacco gives me for daily use.

    That being said - and anyone who mixes tobaccos knows this - DIY tobacco is a deep and dark rabbit hole that is all too easy to get lost in. There are so many different tobaccos to try, both artificial and NETs, and just going by their names / descriptions can be pointless as they will often taste nothing like you've imagined. Some will be raved about by others and taste horrible to you. You might take a chance on a relatively unknown or disliked flavour, and it's actually exactly what you're looking for. And then there's the waiting... for steeping... for weeks... only to find out that your mix did not turn out the way you hoped.

    So when a tobacco mix does come together, and I can vape it for an entire day without getting put off or bored, it really is a joyous occasion for me.

    Golden Nugget

    https://e-liquid-recipes.com/recipe/3234512/Golden Nugget

    FA Glory and FLV Milk & Honey go so well together, dark nuttiness and dark sweetness just works for me
    AP and Hazelnut are there to give the nuttiness a slight boost, Hazelnut adds a hint of creaminess and helps with mouthfeel
    Desert Ship helps add a bit of spice which I love in my tobaccos
    DNB is essential to add a touch of ashiness

    Acetyl Pyrazine 5% (TPA) - 0.5%
    Desert Ship (FA) - 0.5%
    Glory (FA) - 3%
    Hazelnut (FW) - 0.25%
    Milk and Honey (Flavorah) - 1%
    Tobacco, DNB (Dirty Neutral Base) (INAWERA) - 0.5%


    Sodryho

    https://e-liquid-recipes.com/recipe/3234644/Sodryho

    This one came together when I realised my mixes were getting a bit too complicated and I decided to take a step back and go back to basics with one or two flavours to achieve what I was looking for
    Soho is great if you're looking for a caramel tobacco but with a stronger tobacco than RY4s provide (this is one of FA's weakest flavours, so don't let the % scare you)
    Desert Ship adds spice, needs to be a bit stronger here to compete with Soho
    DNB for ashiness

    Desert Ship (FA) - 1.5%
    Soho (FA) - 10%
    Tobacco, DNB (Dirty Neutral Base) (INAWERA) - 0.5%

    Both steeped for a month.

    I have a few more tobaccos that are close to something I'm proud of sharing, hopefully I'll be able to share them soon.

    Let me know if you give them a try!
