    Can I assume therefore that DNB has no taste of its own, just an ashy texture? Ash to me has no taste.

    It has a flavor. What it is I can't really describe. Burnt ash? I don't think it is very good by itself.

    More like dried up hay, I'd almost say it adds a little crisp/crackle to flavors. I use it a lot in my extracts, and with milder flavors.

    No, Old Havana is nothing like Cuban or any other cigar, it tastes a bit as licorice to me with maybe other spices. if you don't have it then keep it that way lol.

    I understand what the grassy or hay taste is but I having trouble with ashy. To me its the dirt taste that associates with those 4 bucks for 100ml Chinese tobacco juices. To me its earthy to dirt.
    The highway and desertship have the grassy taste IMO

    it is something even many tobacco flavor vapers dislike and others love. Some compare to dirty ash try, to me it adds some kick that benefits some flavors. You really would need to try and see if you love or hate it.

    I'm not to fond of licorice flavor in my juice. It seems that there are a few that I have that have that note.

    The DNB smells like tar to me when I take a sniff out of the bottle. Whatever that is worth.:2c:

    The best description I've herd (Because I said it:)) is it's like licking the bottom of a dirty ash tray. If you were ever a smoker you would likely remember that after taste you had in your mouth after taking that last puff and putting the cigarette out. Well that's the taste of DNB. It's the ingredient that makes a true american cigarette vape real.

    Smell a dirty ashtray and imagine how that would taste, That's DNB.

    I know you all are wondering "How can something so horrible sounding have a place in vaping" But it actually is very popular for those trying to produce that real cigarette taste. DNB is a key ingredient in accomplishing this. I use it myself quite often. Many of you think it's a flavor but I look at it more as an additive or enhancer. In other words you would not want to use it as your base tobacco ingredient. Lets say your using a tobacco to create that marlb red taste and it taste more like pipe tobacco or it's close but missing that dirty dry throat hit that the famous red has. DNB is the additive that adds that.

    If you still have some 7Leaves mixture that you haven't touched for a while, It'd be interesting to know what you think of it now.

    DNB even has little floaties in it that look like cigarette ash {at least mine does} -It would not surprise me if we found out that it was made from scraping out those cigarette disposal receptacles, LOL........... :vapor: I swear by DNB and put it in every tobacco recipe I make. :p

    I have western and Type-M, both of which have that horrible licking an ash try taste but I been wondering how they would go in a tobacco mixture at low percentages. So far I tried them as the main flavor and to me, they are horrible but a hint of them in a recipe might add the certain pizzazz that some are looking for.

    It is one of those aquired taste type vapes so it's just something that needs some experimentation to determine where it fits into your vaping arsonal..

    I was going to order some DNB and am glad they was out of stock at Bullcity now. I smoked Marlboro Reds and lights for decades and that flavor of western and Type M which is the licking an ashtray flavor is nothing like a Marlboro to me. With that said I am going to experiment with a drop or two to 15ml batches and see if it adds an enhancement, or ruins the mix. Treat it like a Tobacco Absolute and who knows, it might end up being the tobacco vape I been searching for. If it taste nasty at first then see what a 30 day steep does for it.
    I mixed up four 15ml batches tonight of tobacco flavor. The main tobacco flavors was as follows. Capella's Smooth, Mild, True and Inawara Arabica.

    Tobacco Flavor %10
    Hangsen Flue Cured %2
    Rustica TA %2
    Sweet Cream %2

    To the smooth mixture I added 1 drop from a baby pippete of FA Western. Now to let them steep for a bit and give them a try.

    DNB does not taste or smell at all like western cowboy or M-type. DNB is a good additive that can't be judged by its smell. That family of M-Type, Wester, DK and others all share a very strong smell, being the worst (or the best), M-type. there is no comparison with DNB, DNB is just great!
