In the tradition of "The Really Big RY4 Roundup" which I adore and am devoted to, I would like to hear ECFers' thoughts on cheesecake.
What's your favourite cheesecake E-liquid flavour?
What makes a good cheesecake?
Do you prefer your cheesecake tangy or creamy? Is that sour tanginess necessary to achieve the gestalt of cheesecake?
Crust: yea, nay or optional?
Toppings: tell us the best ones you've tried, and noble experiments that just flopped.
What are the best fruits to pair with cheesecake?
I want to know it all. No detail should be considered too arcane to contribute.
In my five months of vaping I have come across some stellar cheesecake juices. Some of my repeat purchases include:
Ms T's Bakery Butterscotch Caramel Cheesecake
TastyVapor's customizable cheesecake blends. These can be combined with any two flavours. Some of the combinations I have loved are: Hazelnut+Maple+Cheesecake, Butterscotch+Pecan+Cheesecake, French Vanilla+Orange+Cheesecake, and Butter Rum+Pumpkin Spice+Cheesecake. (I also tried Almond+Peach+Cheesecake, but it turned out a bit too amaretto-ish for me. Will ask TV to go light on the almond next time.)
..........'s Butterscotch Caramel Cheesecake
I think the ideal cheesecake should be a balanced blend of sour tanginess and creamy sweetness. Crust notes are nice and always appreciated, but lack of them does not disqualify a good cheesecake.
As you can see above, I quite like sweet caramel/butterscotch blends. I've not had much luck with most fruit blends...I have tried blueberry cheesecake blends from various excellent vendors that just tasted artificial and wrong. I am open to having my horizons expanded
In trying to replicate the above blends myself, I have discovered that Perfumer's Apprentice cheesecake flavour is just too sour/dairy in any but the most infinitesimal amounts. I added a few drops to a liquid I was creating and gagged at the rotten-milkiness of it. Once I get over the trauma I will try to find the correct ratio for future experimentation. Lorann Cheesecake is much more forgiving but I'm still working on the right mixture.
I want to try DeejStuff's cheesecakes which have received much praise, and I have a 15ml bottle of Highbrow incoming. I also asked for a sample with my Copper Creek order, and I am excited about that.
Now it's your turn. Talk to me about cheesecake
