Twelve Monkeys Vapor come from Canada and is one of the most established premium e-liquid producers in the world
They aim to provide a premium e-liquid line available at an affordable price, with no compromise on flavor.
The juices are mixed primarily as higher VG with all the flavors carrying a tropical theme. Each juice is properly steeped before release with all the flavors a carefully layered in.
Twelve Monkeys say they aim for ‘Quality’ over ‘Quantity’, but we certainly do have a lot of lines to get through here so let’s see just how good the quality really is.
The Set Up
12 Monkeys say: Matata raised Kanzi and knows a thing or two about delicious fruity vapes. Big, bold grape on the inhale, followed by a smooth, ripe apple exhale. This bright and succulent blend will awaken your taste buds all day, every day.
Our Vibe: The first vape of Matata dazed me with its aromatic and heady fragrance of grape which is then swiftly but gently complemented by red apple notes on the exhale.
There are some slight floral traits to the grape and an underlying soda taste, but no chemical aftertaste like you seem to get from some grape juices.
Matata is absolutely a masterful e-liquid of its kind and in my opinion, easily beats Ruthless grape drank as one of the best grape juices.
12 Monkey Vapor say: The macaques love their fruits, but also their pastries! MacaRaz unites these two with a delicious intricate confection of French macaron, nutty almonds and raspberry filling. Perfect for an exquisite treat on the go!
Our Vibe: MacaRaz is such a well-conceived and unique combo. It has an ever so slight creamy base, with a hint of meringue, and then sweet punchy notes of natural raspberry, which all blend together perfectly.
If that’s not enough, then the almond tones seem to emerge on the exhale and leave a delicious moreish aftertaste. Macaraz definitely evokes the feeling of chomping on an authentic French macaron.
An absolute perfect vape in my opinion.
12 Monkeys say: South of the Congo River, the Bonobos have been carefully perfecting a delectable recipe that is sure to please yogurt lovers! A perfectly balanced, luscious melody of multiple berries rounded off with creamy and tart yogurt.
Our Vibe: This is a sweet juice but not exaggeratedly so, this is mainly due to the yogurt (the main part of the recipe) penetrating through the vape in all its stages, which is only overcome in the tail notes with mild hints of red fruits.
The red fruits are so mixed, that they are quite indistinguishable individually, except perhaps for the natural strawberry flavor.
It is an excellent an realistic strawberry yogurt vape. But maybe Twelve Monkeys played it a little safe with this one as it is less of a creative concoction.
12 Monkeys say: 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!
Our Vibe: Tropika is a fruit blend that just keeps you guessing, as each time I’ve tried it, I seem to get a mix of different tropical fruits come through. Whether at high or low wattages, it’s like vaping a tropical fruit salad.
In fact, I’d say rather than just being a tropical fruit salad; it’s more a blend of velvety exotic fruits. As it contains a creamy base, that of a fresh milk which seems to reduce the harshness and acidity of the fruit and create an almost uniform exotic creamy goodness.
Though this juice may be lacking in its nuances, it certainly makes up for it in palate-pleasing flavor.
12 Monkeys say: This tantalizing recipe incorporates two distinctly different creamy vanillas to elevate the flavor of handpicked, fresh strawberries. Experience the taste of this sophisticated cream that has evolved to become a unique treasure.
Our Vibe: Describing the Congo Cream vape is relatively as simple as its recipe. It is predominantly a creamy custard with a hint of natural fresh strawberries.
The cream custard is a vanilla and is sufficiently rounded and very delicate, it is not a heavy and dense cream, but almost sweet. The rest of the sweetness comes from the mouth-watering strawberries. However, they only partially enrich the cream with high notes.
Although it’s a simple blend if you like your custards, you will love this. An all-day vape for sure.
12 Monkeys say: A Primate with a sweet tooth; Kanzi has a taste for only the best candy flavors. 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.
Our Vibe: This an extremely popular juice and I can tell why. A lot of candy fruit mixes can be quite artificial or too strong in their taste, that’s not the case with Kanzi.
It is a delicate fruity summer blend of strawberries, watermelons, kiwis and perhaps a pinch of lime. The strawberry is the main lead, with the watermelon playing a supporting role and the nuances of kiwi having a bit part of the sweet enhancer.
It’s the perfect partnership of flavors and a fruit lover’s fantasy vape, and unmistakably clear why it’s at the top of many vapers fruit lists.
12 Monkeys say: Tropika’s Caribbean cousin has arrived! Mangabeys is related in concept yet distinctive in flavor. 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!
Our Vibe: There is no doubt that Mango is the main flavor of this juice, it’s ever present throughout all the stages of the vape. But you do get some slight high notes of pineapple, and a trickle of guava come through to round it all off.
Again it is another well-rounded juice by Twelve Monkeys, all mixed together in the perfect balance. It tastes as good as it smells, and with each inhale you are almost transported off to a Caribbean island with its exotic aroma and taste.
12 Monkeys say: 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!!
Our Vibe: O-Rangz is a cereal vape fused with zesty lemons and milk. The lemons bring you in on the inhale with their zingy sharpness, and they are enveloped by wheaty cereal and creamy milk.
However, the cereals are the more timid and remote component of this recipe, which is a good thing because sometimes they can become too sickly.
It’s the beautiful smooth creamy milk on the exhale, that really brings this juice home. It’s like drinking the delicious enriched milk from your bowl of fruit loops.
12 Monkeys say: A TRIBUTE TO A SPECIAL TRIBE MEMBER
Harambae features a tangy citrus unison of grapefruit highlights fused with lemon, lime, blood orange and refreshing guava undertones. The zesty and sharp exhale of this citrus synergy will be the savior to your taste buds when everything else feels dull!
Our Vibe: I get the subtle ever so slightly bitter grapefruit on the inhale which is then infused with the sharpness of the lemon and lime, and the sweetness of the blood orange without either being too overpowering. At higher wattages, the guava undertones come through leaving an almost juicy sweet aftertaste of guava/grapefruit goodness.
An unquestionable ADV for me – It’s not too sweet and is gentle on the coils, with an amazing aftertaste that will see off those sweet cravings for some time.
When it comes to mixing balanced fruity flavors, Twelve Monkeys really are the masters. Nearly every single juice in their line is a complex mix delivered in a subtle and almost understated way.
Even though they use primarily high VG in most of their e-liquids, which is great for pushing out the clouds, the desired flavors still shine through, and there are some absolute winners in the line that are sure to become many vapers all day vapes.
For me personally, the standout juices were Harambae, Macaraz, Matata, and O-Rangz. But to be honest, I could have named almost any of them, and I’d certainly be happy vaping on or recommending any of the Twelve Monkeys lines.
