Jack Rabbit Vapes are a UK company based in Oxford. They recently launched at the beginning of this year and they have a ten juice range.
A couple of weeks ago I went to a small expo in Nottingham at the Fusion Vape Lounge. There were quite a few new vendors which I hadn’t met before. One company very much stood out through the thick clouds in the room and that was Jack Rabbit Vapes. Two gents who were very smart in appearance, white shirt, black trousers and waistcoats. The stand also in black and white and with this wonderful rabbit figure standing very tall behind them. I knew as I walked in the room, I need to go and check them out.
After some initial ‘hellos’ to some people I already knew I went over to the stand and introduced myself and was greeted by Josh who came across as a great chap and enthusiastic about his juices, which is always a plus point for me. I also met his colleague, which for the life of me, I cannot remember his name (sorry). I actually spent some time with Josh talking about his vision for their business and trying some of their juices. “Get the juices right, then the business will come” said Josh – I couldn’t agree more.
Josh asked me if I would do a review of their juices and gave me this wonderful sample box with five of their flavours. On the day, the one juice that had stood out for me was the Fruit Twister so I did laugh that I actually don’t have that one for review. I have mentioned many times that trying juices at events can be very different to when you get it home and try it on your own devices, read on and lets see what I think of these juices.
You can buy these direct from www.JackRabbitsVapes.co.uk.
Jack Rabbits are selling there juices slightly different from what is now the norm, but will probably become more of the norm as the TPD regulations come into play.
Let me explain, they are selling juice with no nicotine in, in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml but with enough space in the bottle to add a nicotine shot that will make up the juice to your required nicotine strength. Once you receive your juice and your nicotine shot, put them together, give it a good shake and away you go, simple.
I have noticed that quite a few companies are starting to do this.
So, pricing from their website, all coming with their required nicotine shots are £13.99 for 30ml, £17.99 for 50ml and £31.99 for 100ml, nicotine levels you can get are 0, 3 and 6mg. They are a 70VG/30PG mix.
The review I will be conducting will be a scent test from the open bottle of juice and then a flavour test on the devices listed below.
With no further a do, I’ll get on with the review.
- Aspire Pegasus 70W @ 40watts, Aspire Triton2 with Clapton 0.5ohm coil
- Innokin CoolFire plus 70W @ 40watts, Aspire Cleito with 0.4ohm coil
- Joyetech Cuboid 150W @ 70watts, Geekvape Tsunami 24 with Dual Clapton 0.8ohm coils, wicked with Kendo Cotton
Scent: banoffee pie.
Flavour: I not usually a fan of banana vapes (a great one to start on then), it’s not that I don’t like the flavour, it’s just something I choose not to vape. However I am a dessert fan and have been known to compromise with banana in juice if the rest is good. One of my favourite desserts growing up was in fact a banoffee pie. I use to work in a restaurant as a waiter and they made their own and it was divine. I have tried a couple of companies take on the banoffee pie and well, not been too impressed. Until now, I feel Jack Rabbit have hit the nail on the head, not only does it taste like the wonderful dessert I so adore, but it also tastes homemade – big plus point.
On the inhale I get a swirl of rich thick cream entwined with a soft toffee with hints of banana trying to fight its way through, also not overly prominent a buttery biscuit base. On to the exhale and things switch up a little bit, I get more of the biscuit base coming through with the toffee turning to a butterscotch. The banana is always fighting to come forward, but is held back by the smooth cream leaving me wanting more. An ADV for me.
VP Review Rating: 9/10
Scent: tropical fruits and a hint of coconut.
Flavour: I’m a little confused, I see from the card it suggests a Pina Colada, obviously a recipe is down to interpretation and as long as you stick some basic ingredients you can call it that. For me it doesn’t come across as a Pina Colada. But it does come across as a very pleasurable tropical blend. I feel the papaya knocks the coconut further back and if you were to add a softer mint – fresh or peppermint this would an amazing juice. Look at that, me advising to put mint in a juice. Non menthol/mint fan here.
On the inhale I am hit with a delightful mango and pineapple with the slightest of sharp notes, this is pushed in by a menthol that joins right at the back of the inhale. On to the exhale and there is an abundance of mango, pineapple dancing around the taste buds with the occasional appearance of papaya. There is a distant back note of coconut and the menthol is underlying, like a breeze of wind. If this had a touch more coconut and maybe an addition of another mint this juice would be a high scorer.
VP Review Rating: 6/10
Cinnamon Cookie Custard
Scent: cinnamon, cookies and a hint of custard in the background.
Flavour: I found this a little light to start with and initially thought that maybe the juice needed a little more. But, it doesn’t, in fact I find what they have done here quite clever. Instead of hitting me with an explosion of flavour which becomes to much. The flavour builds and caresses your taste buds. Because of this lighter touch it has created an ADV for me, not something for every now and then. Which would be normally the case with this type of flavoured juice.
On the inhale a perfectly baked cinnamon cookie which comes in on a wave of smooth creamy light custard. This flows on to the exhale leaving me with a slightly cinnamon and creamy palate.
VP Review Rating: 7/10
Scent: fruit loops.
Flavour: fruit loops is an extremely popular juice and is done by many companies. The cereal content in juice can make for a harsh, throat hitting juice. However Jack Rabbit have smoothed out those harsh bits and retained that good fruit loop flavour.
Through the inhale and the exhale a very traditional fruit loop flavour but it is smooth and silky on every inhale. The fruit loops are guided in and out on some very creamy under notes. It’s not my thing, but I do recognise excellence when I see it. If you are a fruit loop lover then this is a must try.
VP Review Rating: 5/10
Cream of Tobacco
Scent: tobacco, hints of bourbon and nutty back notes.
Flavour: oh my, oh my, I’m rather impressed. Sometimes there is an element of when companies are setting up their ranges they feel that they must throw in a tobacco flavour and don’t really think about it to much (I maybe being a little harsh there). Recently I have been looking at a few tobacco lines as they have grabbed my interest.
I think I kind of need to apologise to Jack Rabbit as I set up to try this juice, I think I underestimated what I was about to receive. This juice is outstanding, the combination of flavours and the measurements are pin point accurate for me.
On the inhale through the middle is this soft, smooth tobacco – like a light cigar. Drifting on top is a bourbon that isn’t too sweet and an underlying of roasted almonds in hints. On to the exhale and the almonds push through more and the bourbon dies down a little. The question I’ve been asking, is it an ADV? I’m filled with excitement at the moment so me head is going “yes,YES”. Realistically I think I would find it ideal for when I go out (or in) for a drink – an excellent companion.
VP Review Rating: 9/10
So to my conclusion, I find the Jack Rabbit have brought some excellent, well crafted juices. They all deliver great flavour and produce some excellent vapour. The juice I had were samples and came in glass bottles with child safety caps and pipettes.
I think there is some kind of friendly competition going on between Banoffee Pie and Rio, well I’m in the banoffee camp.
The artwork and branding is amazing, love it. You can tell that everything has been thought about very carefully. The wonderful sample box with the different coloured glass bottles for each flavour. The packaging and labelling all matching and this continues on to the website which is very clear and easy to use. I would like wish Jack Rabbit Vapes all the best and wish them luck on their journey.
I would highly recommend going and checking out Jack Rabbit Vapes.
You can also find them on social media;
