Bourbon Whiskey & Irish Cream ft. Foment Life [ Noted: ep. 138 ]



DIY Flavoring Notes

Irish Creams:

LA Irish Cream:

NOT SAFE TO VAPE! Not water soluble. Tastes awful- sawdust and old fryer grease.

(7.09)

 

HS Irish Cream:

Not Irish cream. Like butter on an old piece of white chocolate. Very thick, heavy, buttery cream with little vanilla. Chalky. Slight sourness on the end.

(8.45)

 

CAP Irish Cream:

Not authentic. No whiskey or alcohol bite. Fluffy vanilla cream with waxy chocolate. A little chalky.

(10.57)

 

TFA Irish Cream:

Pretty good. When steeped with the lid off similar to their Kentucky Bourbon with their Bavarian Cream. If not steeped without lid has very strong alcohol note.

Tested at 3%

(12.55)

 

FLV Irish Cream:

Tasty but not authentic. Coffee most prominent note- dark roast. Coffee, chocolate milk with marshmallow. No booze. Really creamy. Complex for a SF. Good saturation.

Use around 1-2%.

(15.36)

 

FA Irish Cream:

Pretty good. Fairly authentic. Woody, boozy, whiskey type top notes. Soft, sweet cream base with a little vanilla- thick but a little dry. Touch of coffee and/or slightly bitter dark chocolate note.

Use under 3%- gets harsh and chalky. 1.5% full flavoured after steeping.

(19.03)

 

 

Miscellaneous:

German Flavours Whiskey:

Whiskey is bad. Whiskey with enough ethyl maltol that it actually tastes like cotton candy. Chemical off note.

(22.14)

 

INW Whiskey:

Main note is slightly rancid butter. Non alcoholic whiskey flavouring. No alcoholic bite.

(24.57)

 

INW Irish Coffee:

Also has strong butter note, although less prominent than INW Whiskey and less rancid. Non alcoholic whiskey flavouring, really sweet, no booze. No coffee. Thin.

(26.24)

 

FW Whiskey:

Pretty authentic whiskey but tastes like dry dog food in the base.

(27.55)

 

FW Fireball:

Similar whiskey note to their Whiskey. Really sweet, candied version of a Red Hot. No heat. (31.07)

 

FA Whiskey:

Does taste like whiskey. But a little mossy. Decent booze note but could be stronger. Earthiness that’s a bit too strong. Prominent fruity sweetness- apple juice and cherry?

(32.30)

 

 

Bourbons:

OOO Bourbon Whiskey:

Has all the elements of a good bourbon- warm, boozy, sweet, smokey. But also extremely waxy.

(35.03)

 

MB JD Whiskey:

No booziness. Odd meaty off note on top- like ground beef. Pretty sweet whiskey flavour. Top heavy, finishes weak.

Tested at 3%. Steeped for 5-6 days.

(35.56)

 

WF Bourbon:

Lacks smokiness of bourbon. More Irish or Canadian whiskey. Really smooth. Almost creamy mouthfeel. Very sweet. Oddly thick for a liquer. Very pleasant. No real alcohol bite, but bit of warmth.

Use around 2%. 3% strange wood off note & astringent.

(40.41)

 

 

Top Flavours of Each Category:

VT Scotch Whiskey:

Really cheap scotch. Overly mossy. Not as smokey or toasty as it should be. Good alcoholic kick. Not too sweet. Not very warm, almost cool.

(44.38)

 

PUR Tobacco Bourbon:

Doesn’t taste like tobacco or bourbon. Molasses or dark brown sugar with something like peanut butter with a little oak behind it. Really nice as a SF.

(46.55)

 

VT Irish Cream:

Authentic Irish cream. Actually boozy. Fairly thick, sweet cream. Very similar to FA Irish Cream, but slightly better. Slight coffee note on the finish.

(48.26)

 

VT Bourbon:

Quite thin and top heavy. Oak note, but not charred. Sweetness is a touch fruity. But has a really great alcohol bite. Great for giving other flavours realistic booziness.

(51.14)

 

FLV Bourbon:

Lacks some sweetness of bourbon and booziness, although has some bite. Great charred, oak barrel flavour. Has some body and depth. Not unwelcome chocolate note.

(53.10)

 

TFA Kentucky Bourbon:

Very versatile. Can use to warm a mix up, cook fruits, as a bourbon/ whiskey. Not very authentic, but makes it versatile. Authentic sweetness. A little boozy. Like bourbon that has been cooked.  (56.25)

 

INW Godfather:

INW says it’s a whiskey and Ameretto. Pretty good. More of a brandy. Nice booziness. Cherry/ almond note and sweetness that leans towards an Ameretto.
