    Review

    This is much more British in flavour than the Flavour Art custard. It’s more eggy and has less of the citrusy vanilla edge. It is also weak – I went up to 17.5% to get a decent flavour and added 5% EM – It also needed some sweetener – 2.5%. I would probably take this up to 20% or more before I was satisfied. I bought this from Nicvapes when getting a half litre of base – it was possible to add some concentrates whilst having no effect on the postal costs.

    In conclusion? I am looking forwards to trying the Capella alternative, which comes with some reputation.

    Value

    It’s weak. In terms of VFM this is no where near that of most Inawera flavours and some from FA. But at £2.17 it’s a lot cheaper than paying £3.75 from some UK retailers or £2.50 for 7.4 ml. It’s going to cost 44p to mix this at 20% compared to the FA custard which cost 27p at 10%. So VFM is far from brilliant.

    Use as a mixing ingredient

    A bit expensive. I think I’d be inclined to try something else.

    Tried this last week at 15% and it was awful. Tasted acrid and soapy. Not for me.

    I've tried a few custards. I've gone for twisted vanilla custard, can feel found at chefs vapour. Mixed at 20% 70/30 and its lovley after just a week but 4 weeks and it's just right.
