    Default Flavor West Recipes

    New to mixing and was wanting to start a post for Flavor West Recipes. I've seen these for other flavor companies and wanted to get one going for Flavor West. Please feel free to post your recipes and help a newbie to mixing out. Thank You in advance for your contribution.

    FW Ande's Mint
    10% Double Dutch Chocolate
    5% Creme de Menthe

    FW's Candy Cane is the single flavor closest to Halo's Kringle's Curse. Add tiny bit of Creme de Menthe and tinier bit of TFA's Koolada, and it stands up to a side-by-side vape comparison.

    I like several FW flavors as simple, single flavors at 15%. Salted Caramel and Swedish Fish are both outstanding.

    Yes, FW's Salted Caramel is flavorful. It not hugely different than their Caramel Candy flavoring. I find it a tad less sweet, and personally, I don't taste salt. I use those two flavors almost interchangeably, both at about 15%.

    I was also disappointed in that Butter Toffee. Just blah. I still haven't found any toffee I really like.

    I either love or hate FW's flavors. Love Tres Leches (light cake flavor, very milky, super for cake recipes), Butter Pecan (YUM, and it's strong), and many others...but I can't even be in the same room with Yellow Cake, uuuurgh, and Chai Tea should be called "mouthful of spice rack". lol - I know many would disagree.

    FW Yogurt 7%
    Koolada to taste but tastes great without it.

    Let steep a week.

    Default Lime cream dream

    Lime 7%
    EXTREME Ice 8%
    Cream 5%

    I use 80/20 vg/pg, works well with 50/50 as well.

    This is an older favorite of mine, right during my extreme ice obsession. Still a goodie enjoy!

    I've had no luck with the YCBatter and gave up long ago! That being said... FW has many delicious decadent flavors.
    I think that among the carmels the dbl dutch choc and cinn bun are heavenly mixed with the Vanilla ice cream.
    I am starting to use more TFA but i'm still a FW fan.

    Since nobody has added to this thread in a while, a couple more:

    ROOTBEER FLOAT
    12% FW Root Beer
    2-3% FW Wintergreen
    (without the wintergreen, the root beer flavor is a bit flat)

    MALIBU-COLADA
    15% FW Pina Colada
    0-3% FW Jamaican Rum (or 1% FlavourArt Rum to better match a Malibu flavor)
    1 drop Koolada per 2-3ml of finished liquid
    The Pina Colada flavor is excellent, even without Rum

    Mojito and Double Apple are two of FW's best flavors. Mojito is sharp lime with a bit of spearmint. Double Apple is a surprisingly good flavor all by itself, nice balance of sweet and tart. 12-15% flavoring is recommended.
