Twelve Monkeys E-Liquid

Twelve Monkeys E-Liquid is produced in Canada, and is conceived as a premium e-liquid line available at an affordable price, with no compromise on flavour. They say themselves that they strive to hit the right balance between high quality flavour and base ingredients, whilst using an artisanal production process, but whilst still keeping the cost affordable.

The juices are mixed within a clean room environment in a Canadian laboratory, whereby flavours are carefully layered in, with a tropical theme to them, and they are all pre-steeped for 14 days before being bottled and subsequently going on sale, so they are ready to vape as soon as you crack open the bottle.

Each of the juices contains a minimum of 70VG, however the mix ratio differs per juice and is specifically tailored to the flavour. They are available in 30ml and 100ml bottle sizes, and in nicotine strengths of 0mg, 3mg and 6mg.

Let's see what wild ride Twelve Monkeys takes us on!

Vape Club

Kanzi

A Primate with a sweet tooth; Kanzi has a taste for only the best candy flavours. This fusion of strawberries, watermelon and a hint of kiwi is sure to please the most disconcerting candy connoisseur. Kanzi is a mouthwatering candy concoction that is sure to salivate any palate. Perfect accompaniment to Kanzi while winning a game of Pac-Man.

Kanzi is blended with an 80VG/20PG mix ratio which accentuates the blend of candied fruits perfectly. Many candied fruit blends can taste too artificial or too strong and sharp, however Kanzi has it spot on with it’s high VG mix ratio. It’s a fruit lover's dream, with a fantastic blend of strawberry and watermelon on the inhale and a kiwi that lingers on the tongue on the exhale, that leaves your mouth watering!

Mangabeys

Tropika’s Caribbean cousin has arrived! Mangabeys is related in concept yet distinctive in flavour. Mangabeys will transport you to the sunny carefree shores of the Caribbean islands. This bright and fresh blend of Pineapple, Guava and Mango is accented by a myriad of Caribbean fruits and is the perfect companion for a day basking in the warm tropical sun. Let Mangabeys’ Caribbean specific fruits give you a taste of the island lifestyle!

With an 80/20 mix ratio, Mangabeys is a tropical blend reminiscent of the Rubicon juice drinks you can pick up from your local shop, a refreshing sunny vape featuring a mix of delicious mango and guava with pineapple in the background holding it all together. Mangabeys is the first juice I’ve tried containing pineapple that really nails that flavour for me, and combined with guava and mango, close your eyes Mangabeys will transport you off to a Caribbean island where you could be sipping on a blend of the real thing!

Tropika

Inspired by their primal cousins to the south, Twelve Monkeys has crafted a perfect balance of exotic tropical fruits combined carefully to result in one of the most palate pleasing juice blends known to man. This pleasing, but not overpowering concoction of tropical fruits is the perfect complement for any daydreaming, beach vacationing aficionado. Sit back and give your taste buds an exotic vacation while they attempt to identify what the fruits are!

Premier Ecigs

Another one for the fruit lover, Tropika is the perfect vape to compliment not only Mangabeys, but Kanzi too. It’s a fruit blend that keeps you guessing, as it seems to offer something different each time. The actual blend is a closely guarded secret but I primarily pick up pineapple and mango, with citrus notes as well, and when vaping at over 50w, watermelon seems to come into play too. It’s a 90VG blend but it definitely packs a full bodied flavour punch, it’s one of the most strongest and sweetest of the Twelve Monkeys flavour range. If you like your juices to keep you guessing, Tropika will be the one for you!

Congo Custard

Deep within the luscious forests of the Congo evolved our take on the popular Strawberry Custard. By carefully layering each ingredient, this tantalizing recipe also incorporates two distinctly different vanillas to elevate the flavour of handpicked, fresh strawberries. Experience the taste of this sophisticated custard that has evolved to become a unique treasure.

I do love my custard, and even more so when it has a mix ratio of 70VG/30PG. Thankfully, Congo Custard boasts this mix ratio, and it also boasts outstanding creamy strawberry custard flavouring too! The Strawberry is more of the fresh strawberry flavour variety, rather than artificial candied strawberry, and this combined with a hint of vanilla bean and mouth wateringly creamy custard, is reminiscent of fresh strawberries dunked in custard, and an all day vape for many for sure! Congo Custard is an outstanding custard that I rate right up there with the very best I have tried, it’s an outstanding vape.

O-RangZ

Tired of foraging for food during the drowsy morning dew, Twelve Monkeys developed the perfect breakfast to ease the morning blues. A careful marriage of lemony fruits accented by wheaty cereal and finished with creamy milk. The perfect vape to start off your day AND vape all day. O-RangZ brings back memories of our most beloved cereal from childhood. Twelve Monkeys Vapor Co. still recommends a healthy, nutritional breakfast. Not to be used as a meal replacement!!

There are many cereal vapes around these days, all based around the lemony Fruit Loop taste, and O-Rangz is one of the most well balanced to date. Featuring an 80VG/20PG mix ratio, O-Rangz features a smooth balance of zesty lemon on the inhale with a wheaty background, and beautifully smooth creamy milk on the exhale, that seems to linger around your mouth for a long time. O-Rangz is definitely the juice to give your day a kick start, at any time of the day!

Conclusion

Twelve Monkeys may well be a high VG juice line, but they certainly don't compromise on flavour, with flavour profiles here that appeal to both fruit and dessert lovers alike. You don't need to vape these at high power to get the very best out of them, these juices have been bursting with great flavour for me at wattage from 20-100W! Though the more power you use, the more you will get out of these delicious juices. I've been impressed with just how packed with flavour these juices are, and they make for beautifully flavourful vapes that can be enjoyed all day.

High VG means big clouds and these juices definitely don't disappoint there, with massive vapour production, and the high VG mix adds a lovely smoothness to these delicious flavour blends. If you're looking for juice that's full of flavour and can throw out the clouds too, Twelve Monkeys is a range you are sure to enjoy!
