We are going ape over Twelve Monkeys new e-liquid - Harambae!
12 Monkeys are a High VG Gourmet e-liquid producer from Canada and have won numerous awards over the years, they have also been near the top of our best e-liquids fruit category for some time.
We had the pleasure of catching up with Michael at Twelve Monkeys and the opportunity to try out one of their latest editions ‘Harambae’ before general release.
Twelve Monkeys have always been great at naming their line, and it seems our ape-loving friends have aptly named their new juice in tribute to one of their own – a 17-year-old, 400-pound Gorilla from Cincinnati Zoo that sadly had to be shot.
We are super excited to try this one out and hope it’s a fitting tribute from the Twelve Monkeys crew; let’s see if it can push them closer to that top spot.
Let’s taste that juice
The Set Up
As Harambae is high VG liquid, I vaped it on both the Hellvape Dead Rabbit RDA at 0.15 Ohm and the Wotofo Serpent SMM RTA at 0.6 Ohm. Both with SS316 wire sitting on top the VooPoo Drag.
Harambae – 80% VG
12 Monkey’s 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!
As mentioned above this is a high VG juice, so I was expecting it to be a little lacking on the punchy side – boy was I wrong! I’m not quite sure how they’ve managed it, but the balance is just right without being too sweet or too bland.
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. As I increased the wattage, I was getting more of the same but with the guava undertones coming through and an almost juicy sweet aftertaste of guava/grapefruit goodness on the exhale.
This is definitely a great fruit vape at any level, but being an 80VG juice, it really finds it’s groove up at the higher wattages with more of the fruitiness coming through in absolute tons of vapor.
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.
As one of the most established premium e-liquid producers on the market Twelve Monkeys have always stated that they put ‘quality over quantity.’ So much so that their e-liquid range stocks can sometimes run low as no batch is released until it’s properly steeped – that quality shows through.
If you’re a fan of Twelve Monkeys juice you are going to love this new edition; if you haven’t tried them before but enjoy fruity vapes what are you waiting for? #wicksoutforharambae
Either way, it’s another great addition to an already impressive line – Twelve Monkeys really should be swinging from the trees as they are establishing themselves as the kings of the fruit vapes.
