    How long can you save extracts ?
    PG Maceration, then twice filtered, stored brown glass bottles in cool, dark place (closet shelf). But some of this stuff is a year old. Beginning to wonder if I extracted to many flavors at once ....

    I mixed a PG extract of over 2 years just few months ago. It was better than fresh.
    As of today never lost anything letting my extract aged.

    I'm finishing up some that's two years old. No change or diminishment.

    Just ordered from 4Noggins.

    McClelland Bulk: 2010: CLASSIC VIRGINIA
    Amount: 2oz.

    McClelland Bulk: PER: PERIQUE

    Amount: 2oz.

    Blending Tobacco: TURKISH IZMIR

    Amount: 4oz.

    McClelland Bulk: 2010: CLASSIC VIRGINIA

    Amount: 1oz.

    Gawith Hoggarth Bulk: DARK BIRD'S EYE

    Amount: 1oz.

    Gawith Hoggarth Bulk: TOP BLACK CHERRY
    Amount: 1oz. (Wild hair purchase)

    I'm getting more into random blending. Blending already mixed together in the squonk bottle. The Dark Birdseye is really smooth and flavorful after about a year. Good before that but now more mature.

    Have you tried Decatur Black Cherry (assuming it's still available) ? Next time your "wild hair" wants to try a cherry tobacco, it is exceptional. Everyone I have given it to loves it.

    Yep, that's the one.
    Just easing into the evening, jammin' to some classic rock and mixing some sweet and mellow NETs. 100ml each of the following ;
    Decatur Black Cherry - Pipes and Cigars
    Save on Peter Stokkebye 84 Turkish pipe tobacco here at P&C! - Pipes and Cigars
    Scotty's Bulk Blends - Honey & Chocolate - Pipes and Cigars
    McClelland M96 Mellow Apple Pipe Tobacco - Pipes and Cigars
    Save Big on Sutliff Molto Dolce tobacco here at Pipes and Cigars!
    Save on the best selling Scotty's Trout Stream tobacco here at P&C! - Pipes and Cigars
    If you like strong, stout tobaccos these do not qualify. More along the line of the type of "Champagne Tobacco" that HHV sells, only a lot less expensive when made at home.

    Molto Dolce is outstanding. I can only take it in small doses because i can't do sweet like I used to.

    I've been adding a tiny bit of either Izmir or John Cotton Smyrna to the PS 84 Turkish to give it a little top kick.

    Nothing like that here. But I do Have some Stoved Virginia and some Virginia Spice on hand, maybe I'll add a few drops in a 10ml test just to see if it adds a little more to 84 Turkish.

    Nothing too revelatory, just an update on some ongoing trials, working through myriad selections in the large stash of cellared (aged 15 years!) tobaccos from my pipe smoking days. 7 half-pint jars, heat assisted in PGA. Lately I've been letting them sit some additional weeks after heat processing before filtering and reducing.

    Peter Stokkebye:
    #1 Natural Cavevdish
    #400 Luxury Navy Flake
    McClelland:
    No. 2035 Dark Navy Flake
    No. 5105 Stoved Virginia
    Frog Morton on the Town
    Gawith, Hoggarth & Co:
    Rum Flake
    Admiral's Choice:
    Gold Burley

    I finally ventured into Ipswich, my nearest big town with a shop promising to be a mecca for pipe tobacco.
    What a let down.
    About 30 pipe tobacco varieties most of which were the same stuff sold in the tobacco kiosks in any supermarket .
    Came away with Dunhill Navy Rolls.
    Don't know if any of you have tried this.
    The Dunhill Nightcap was my kind of thing . Needless to say they hadn't got that.
    I like to support b&m stores but if they can't try harder I'm going to vote with my feet.
    Had a poke around a few vape stores while I was playing the city slicker , man what a sorry sad experience that was .
    Same old same old.
    Got a great little vape store in a tiny little place called Saxmundham.
    Knowledgeable guys a warm welcome a large range of open juices for you to help yourself to. Somewhere you can have a coffee sit in comfort. Yeah good place .
    I won't name it as I'm not sure that's ok.
    I'll let you know in a few weeks how I like the Navy rolls. The guys on Tobacco review say nice things.
    Keep those wicks clean.

    Has anyone tried the cloud collection, of vape liquids, from the Juice Mafia? If so, how would you rate them? Thanks!

    Sorry @checkum but I haven't bought any retail juice in a very long time. When I first started extracting I used to periodically buy retail NETs from various vendors to compare against my home made NETs. I stopped doing that once I was satisfied my NETs were as good or better.

    Back when I enjoyed hybrid NETs I occasionally bought retail synthetics including "Boba's Bounty", "Caramel Wild Wood", "ACB", "Frenilla", "Tripoli" and "Pistachio RY-4". I'd add NET to them making them NET hybrids. Good stuff but I eventually learned to just mix my own using concentrated flavorings. Unfortunately, I lost interest in hybrids some time ago and now prefer straight NETs.

    I still have a square bottles of River Bottom Fog Sauce "Porch Rocker" and "Count Caramel" from early 2014, how many people remember those days? Like MVJ (MyVapeJuice.com), RBFS has long since closed its doors. Back in their day both made the cleanest NETs around, a little on the weak/mild side but they were still tasty. I spent a lot of time figuring out what tobacco was used to make "Porch Rocker" but after all that effort I soon discovered better tobacco blends and never looked back. Sampling new tobaccos a dozen or so at a time inspired this thread. Fun times and lots of good memories. ;)

    I am still wondering why River Bottom Fog Sauce decided to fold. They seemed to have a pretty good following... Good stuff of yesteryear.

    On looking at German manufacturer take on Kohlhase & Kopp pipe 66 a classic Danish aromatic as having Creme de cassis casing, Thought i give intense unsweetened blackcurrant from Cupcake-world a try with pipe net's,
    Finding so so tricky to get %s off casing right, Im as low as 0.25% still to dominant, 0.25% is ok with Canadian Virginia tobacco as being very sweet net,s, All in all adding a aromatic is dam and blast tricky.

    Easing into some Home & Hearth Virginia Spice that I actually mixed back in July. Don't remember why I put it down back then, but I am enjoying it now. It's a VaPer, with the emphasis on a sweet Virginia and just a touch or Perique. After aging it is mild, mildly sweet and quite enjoyable to me.

    H&H Virginia Spice was an early favorite, originally recommended by an old extractor (johni) who exited the forum long ago. Like the Perique, there's just enough cigar leaf in it to enhance/support the Virginia tobacco which remains the star of the show even after aging.

    Porch Rocker was good but I lived for St James Parish, unadulterated Perique :)
