    I do not even know where to begin. I am looking to clone the honey berry, russian creme and dark stout flavors. I have smoked them each enough to know how they should taste off memory alone. Where do you start with flavored tobacco off a mild tobacco base? I have only ever made fruit base flavors btw so i really dont know where to start with tobacco flaor like tobacco leaf not pipe tobacco or cigarette alike (im not talking about cheap "blunts")

    Honey berry is basically a mild grape. Russian creme is vodka and coffee liqeur. Dark stout is chocolate and stout beer i guess but i really just taste chocolate mainly but i know the stout edge is needed.

    I use HS Essence Old Captain for a 'pipe tobacco' base, sometimes adding in other tobacco types like FA Latakia, FA Perique Black, or VZ Flue-Cured for a more ashy/cigar flavor, then just add the other flavors like peach, etc.

    The best would be a NET type flavoring from real cigars, but those are expensive.

    I tried once back in 2012 using some Bali Shag soaked in PG...lol, that was not tasty.

    Here a juice i made off the top of my head the other day...it's more peach than cigar, but I enjoy it. :)

    Keep in mind..I'm using a 14mg 25/75 PG/VG nic base here...it's got it's own flavor. ;-)

    I used 1:2 Captain/Peach, then 4 drops each of Ethy Maltol 10% solution to sweeten and Pear to balance. This ratio is more peachy than tobacco, just reverse it if ya want more cigar flavor.

    It's a steeper if you want the tobacco to come through fully, it's a very strong peach. :)
