Setup: Velocity clone; dual twisted 28awg @ .55Ω; cotton wicks; 40 W
Testing: LA Cream Cheese Icing @ 3%; Aged: 2 weeks
Flavor description: Sweet, rich, and thick with a light cream cheese note and hints of wet powdered sugar and cereal milk on the exhale. At 3% standalone, it really pushes more towards frosting than icing. Reminiscent of a jar of Betty Crocker rich and creamy white frosting.
Off-flavors: Alcohol note initially which steeps out eventually. The cheese note may be off putting or sour to some people at higher percentages, although I feel it adds to what the flavor is supposed to be.
Throat hit: 4/10, smooth and dense.
Uses: Great for adding mouthfeel and thickness to cream bases. Also nice for adding a sweet icing/frosting top to your favorite bakeries. May work with yogurt flavors to add a more authentic dairy note too.
Pairings: Creams, cakes, cookies, coffee, cereal, yogurt, preferred fruits.
Notes: This flavor may require a bit longer steep time to develop true potential and evaporate the alcohol out. A pretty useful flavor for many different aspects of a recipe depending on how you use it.
