I still say advise is a good mix with Apple.......
But dbl apple, needs the bit of sour I reckon
I love Aniseed and Liquorice - but think of Menthol on steroids as far as flavour removal from your tank goes.
I use ViVi Novas (I bought out what vision had left when they were discontinued - cos I hate change) and have one that is dedicated to Pluid clones (eg VK 'Emerald Shot' ).
Glass tanks are no problem - but keep a dedicated atty.
These are all different flavors, similar to each other but with subtle yet important differences.
True liquorice is hard to find these days, much of what is commercially made claiming to be liquorice is actually anise or anise/fennel substitute with perhaps a small amount of liquorice added.
Real liquorice has superior flavor to anise, it is not quite as sharp & is more of a base note than a high note like anise.
They sure are. Liquorice being a legume, fennel and anise being herbaceous, and absinthe, well... being absinthe
Nothing like a real bit of soft liquorice. I'm going to hunt some down on the weekend.
Actually fennel counts as both a herb & as a vegetable & liquorice is derived from the root of the plant, not the "peas".
Liquorice is indeed the sweet sweet root of the legume plant Glycyrrhiza glabra
In culinary terms perhaps fennel is both a herb and a vegetable in purely biological terms there is no such thing as a "vegetable" classification.
Apparently, it is said that "Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder"
I have no direct experience of this, and proposing the experiment has diminished the likelihood of obtaining any.
I remember from my herbology class that liquorice root is about 42 times sweeter than sugar.
Even in an RDA, it can take a couple of washes to get the lingering flavours out! But so worth it!
@laurie9300 and @Aqualung Fuji Apple and some double kiwi for the win!!!
Just cracked open the bottle of Licor 43 I picked up on the weekend. It sure is tasty stuff!!! Thanks of the recommendation.
I toyed with the idea of getting an Absinthe fountain, but the realisation that noone wants to have absinthe parties hit me before I opened my wallet
Awesome Rupert, glad you like it, its really different from most liqs ive tried, and is generally a 'girly' drink in spain but we enjoy a late night 43 every now n again

@Ben I could care less if its girly or manly But three fingers poured over a glass of ice - Golden.
A bit of a necro post this one I'm relatively new to vaping but have been using one of Vagabond vapes juices going by the name of Santorini Sunrise and have found it rather moreish its an Ouzo flavour very tasty if you like that sort of thing !
Nice, Ill check it out.
Lately I have been lazy with mixing liquorice and absinthe flavours, and have gone for my two fav's:
Irish cream and absinthe, and
My Pluid mock up.
Whats your take on Pluid, Rupert?
I tried Absinthe 14% black tea3% and ecto cooler 2%.
Didn't make my favourites list.
Were you thinking Absolute Pin for the other?
My Pluid clone has the absinthe lower than 14%, no tea or ecto. I use a cocktail of fruits in the background
I dont have the recipe on me, so cant scribe it here right now.
Yeah, the irish and absinthe is essentially an Absolute Pin mock up - after a bit of a steep it is really nice, and a big change to bakeries and fruit mixes.
From memory it is IC at approx 10% and Absinthe at approx 2-3% (again no recipe book on hand right now).
oooo Irish Cream and Absinthe ? I must try that out when I get back home.
TFA Irish Cream - 10%
TFA Absinthe - 2%
TFA Caramel - 2%
TFA Bavarian Cream (DX) - 3%
