    Amazing contribution, thanks for sharing. I vape tobacco's all day and, like you, I find them to be the ultimate satisfaction.

    Kudos on the use of Hazelnut (FW) and Milk & Honey (FLV), Unfortunately Desert Ship (FA) tastes like burnt green peppers to me, so not my favourite flavour to use. I hope to share a bunch of my recipes here soon.

    Just out of curiosty, Have you tried some of the Inawera, Flavorah and Hangsen tobacco's?

    Ah man, I love Desert Ship, for me it tastes like a wonderful combination of foreign spices.

    I have tried INW Black for Pipe, this is probably my favourite tobacco of all. Dark, smokey, ashy, with the slightest hint of wild blueberries to create some background interest. Pairs amazingly with custards or berries. I tried their Arabic and Flue Cured tobacco which tasted like nothing to me. You must get their DNB concentrate if you don't already have it, this changed my tobacco mixing life!

    Flavourah - these are strange ones - they tasted great for a week or so then disappeared, so I chucked them. After doing some research, apparently they do fade and then come back again so I need to give them another chance sometime:

    Red Burley - the best of their lot, dark and dry and earthy, not sweet or spicy, I'll be trying this one out again
    Kentucky Blend - brighter than Red Burley and a bit spicy, will also be trying this again
    Lovage (additive) - great for adding moistness and earthiness to a mix, works well with darker tobaccos IMO
    Native - I don't even remember what this tasted like

    Hangsen - I think I got a bad batch or I completely messed up the percentages, because they all tasted the same to me. Mostly tasteless with something which might be loosely defined as tobacco-tasting in the background:

    Eastern
    Cuba
    Gold and Silver
    Indian
    Bold

    If you like Black for Pipe, you should try Dark Tobacco, also by Inawera. This will be right up your street.

    Our tastes obviously differ as I have DNB but don't use it as it's really not my cup of tea.

    My favourite Flavorah Tobacco's are Cured, Kentucky Blend, Native and Red Burley. Native is dark with a bit of a cigar type flavour to it and yes, they do seem to have a boomerang effect on the steep, give them two weeks.

    The Hangsen tobacco's that I have tried are pretty good but you need to use them at a pretty high percentage. I like their Deluxe Tobacco, Indian Tobacco and Magic Mix to name a few. You really need to use these around 5% and up for them to start standing out.

    I look forward to seeing your future mixes. Keep it up!

    @GSM500 and all the other tobacco heads - I've been thinking about creating a cinnamon tobacco using FLV Rich Cinnamon. I want it to be fairly dry and earthy. Which tobacco do you all think would pair well with a cinnamon? And what else would you add for some background interest? I'm thinking a bit of cookie / biscuit, maybe coconut...

    Would like to hear your thoughts!

    I made a sweet tobacco recipe sometime ago. You can try Tabs which I feel is best as an MTL. I do have a DL version of the recipe too.

    I saw that but it looks a bit too sweet for me, not a fan of RY4. Also don't have any of those tobaccos. Or the cream or the coconut or the vanilla. :facepalm:

    But I think I can use it as a guideline, I'm quite enjoying Stixx Mixx Kentucky Virginian so I'm thinking of this:

    SM Kentucky Virginian - 4%
    FLV Rich Cinnamon - 0.25%
    FA Coconut - 1% (also helps with mouthfeel)
    INW DNB - 0.5%

    I already have like 30 testers of other mixes waiting for me and here I am busy creating another - I love/hate DIY.

    I tasted an amazing commercial tobacco juice about 5 years ago called Vanilla Sky Tobacco by Hurricane Vapor, which I've been trying without luck to replicate since then. I never did find a tobacco concentrate that came close until recently - TFA Western. I adore the leathery dryness of this tobacco and the taste that seems to linger forever on my buds after a drag.

    This recipe is inspired by that juice from 5 years ago.

    Coco Jane

    https://e-liquid-recipes.com/recipe/3241823/Coco+Jane

    Acetyl Pyrazine 5% (TPA) - 0.5%
    Holy Vanilla (DIYFS) - 0.75%
    Coconut (FA) - 0.75%
    Sweet Coconut (FLV) - 1%
    Tobacco, DNB (Dirty Neutral Base) (INW) - 0.5%
    Western (TPA) - 3.5%

    Steeped for a month.

    The coconuts and vanilla are subtle and are there to support the tobacco with a lightly creamy base and some fluff. The sweet coconut provides sweetness on the exhale. I like my Western very strong so you may want to start it off at 2.5-3%.

    A light & smooth tobacco kissed with vanilla & caramel.

    This is a deceptively simple analogue killer, designed to provide a tobacco sub to new converts & veterans alike.

    SM A+ Blend is a superbly blended, medium bodied blend of familiar tobaccos which most ex smokers will be able to relate to. This is the perfect transitional tobacco vape = "light, smooth, slightly sweet & nutty" and sure to satisfy any bacco lover. The first drag reminds one of the full aromas which fills the nostrils upon opening a new pack of analogues = fresh, sweet and slightly nutty tobacco...

    HS Caramel toffee adds a splendid sweet and creamy caramel without distraction & enhances the innate natural sweetness of the tobacco blend.
    A touch of Shisha Vanilla completes our masterpiece by masterfully doing what it does best = provide the best possible vanilla flavor...

    Give this baby 7 days to reach its potential and enjoy!

    A+B
    6% (SM) A+ Blend
    1.5% (HS) Caramel Toffee
    1.5% (INW) Shisha Vanilla

    Still need to get my hands on the A+ Blend, but that percentage at that price :facepalm:

    Which other SMs have you tried and would say are worth the price?

    I love their Dark Fire (Latakia) and it's taken over my number 1 spot from INW Black for Pipe, and it can be used at low percentages which make it easier to forget about the price I paid!

    SM Black Cavendish on the other hand - tastes good and authentic but so weak even at 6-8% that I can't justify rebuying it at that price.

    Unfortunately I have not tried the Vgods Cubano.
    Is it in anyway similar to Twisp Cubano?

    I’ll have to grab a bottle to confirm.

    I saw @Christos complimenting a juice and mentioning you, is that a diy recipe or a commercial juice?

    The juice that @Christos mentioned is an upcoming commercial release. A couple of others may join it.

    The Cubano by Twisp is a strong Aniseed type Tobacco.

    @Halfdaft Customs, this is the one - I posted somewhere else about it as well. Excellent tobacco by the master - hoping that it will hit the shelves soon
