    i found some info on tobacco flavoring. there is a lot of info regarding the chemicals used for flavoring tobacco. here is just an example i found. maybe this is why it is so impossible to recreate the true taste of a traditional cig that we all crave. or at least a lot of us anyhow. i believe with the right mix of Virginia absolute, burley absolute, along with seedmans stuff one could get a good tobacco flavored base. im sure you could then add other flavor combos to that for endless goodnees!!!! here is the link for an interesting read. im no expert just an info freak! hope this helps!

    FLAVOR PRODUCTION
    • FLAVOR COMPLEXITY
    • SOME FLAVORS PRODUCED REQUIRE JUST
    A FEW COMPONENTS WHILE OTHERS MAY
    CONTAIN 20 -30. WHY?
    • VANILLA FLAVOR IS A GOOD EXAMPLE .
    FOR CERTAIN APPLICATIONS, E.G.,
    INEXPENSIVE ICE CREAM, PRODUCERS
    HAVE FOUND THAT A SINGLE FLAVOR
    CHEMICAL - VANILLIN - MAKES A
    SATISFACTORY FLAVOR. BUT TO MAKE A
    HIGH QUALITY VANILLA FLAVOR MAY REQUIRE
    15 - 20 CHEMICALS. IN NATURE, HOWEVER,
    OVER 140 FLAVOR CHEMICALS ARE FOUND IN
    NATURAL VANILLA. THE FLAVORISTS JOB IS
    TO FIND THE IMPORTANT MATERIALS THAT
    PROVIDE THE DESIRED FLAVOR EFFECT AND
    YET USE ONLY THE MINIMUM NUMBER REQUIRED .
    • THERE ARE OVER 1800 FLAVOR MATERIALS ON
    THE GRAS LIST. AND MOST FLAVORS PRODUCED
    IN NATURE CONTAIN HUNDREDS (OR THOUSANDS
    IN THE CASE OF THE TOBACCO LEAF) . WE
    MUST BE THANKFUL THAT THE FLAVORIST CAN
    SELECT MANY LESS TO OBTAIN SIMILAR EFFECTS .
