Butterscotch is a sweet treat that much like other flavours, has seen somewhat of a resurgence in recent years as it comes back into modern sweet treat thinking. Made primarily of brown sugar and butter, it can also be made in recipes using cream, corn syrup, vanilla and even salt. Butterscotch as a range of different uses in the sweet world from hard candy style using sugar to mixed with other desserts for flavouring or even topping. Similar to toffee, the difference here is that butterscotch is melted to its soft crack state to achieve it rather than the hard crack used for toffee. Originating back in the 1800s, it has since become a popular sweet for generations and now in its multi use form, has become a rather different sweet flavouring due to the different notes that it contains.
Butterscotch fishing concentrates are fantastic for their mix of strong sweet flavour with a combination of different undertones to make it stand out from the rest. They can be strong in the sweet aspect but carry a whole host of other notes depending on how you used the recipe. Aroma wise, butterscotch is a nice strong sweet smell with the distinct butterscotch scent adding in different notes underneath. As it is such a strong and distinctive flavour, it is great when making fishing bait such as boilies, pop ups, groundbait additives or as part of a spod mix. If you want something a little different as part of your fishing bait, butterscotch could be a great choice to make.
