VP Vaping Review: Cheeky Monkey

Cheeky Monkey are a UK company based in Blackburn. They have one range with six flavours and they are a 75VG/25PG mix. They are distributed by UK Vapour Brands.

I was contacted by UK Vapour Brands and they asked me if I would do a review of some of the products they are distributing. They sent out the following for the purpose of review; the iStick Pico 25 by Eleaf (check out my review by clicking here), six juices by Route 66 (review coming soon) and six juices by Cheeky Monkey, which is what I have for you today.


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.

Devices used:

  • Joyetech Cuboid 150W @ 70watts, Geekvape Tsunami 24 with Dual Clapton 0.8ohm coils, wicked with Kendo Cotton
  • Aspire Pegasus 70W @ 40watts, Aspire Triton2 with Clapton 0.5ohm coil
  • Innokin CoolFire plus 70W @ 40watts, Aspire Cleito with 0.4ohm coil

Fun Down Under

Scent: orange with a hint of passion fruit.

Flavour: the first I notice is that it is a little harsh on the inhale. The orange is lovely and fresh with the passion fruit as a back note. For me it comes across a little diluted, like a cordial and water mix. It is still a pleasant vape.

On the inhale I get a fresh orange and the passion fruit follows in under the orange with a little harshness to the throat. On to the exhale and the passion fruit pushes further forward and blends well with the orange. I am left wanting a little more from it. It is still an ADV.

VP Review Rating: 6/10

Smokin’ Aces

Scent: fruity caramel.

Flavour: so the fruity smell I was getting is a fruity tobacco and sits along side a caramel which softens the tobacco. I’m not sure on this combination, I would be more guided towards a nutty tobacco to go the caramel. The vape is not unpleasant but maybe a required taste.

On the inhale I get a fruity tobacco which builds into the inhale. On to the exhale and the caramel comes in to sit along side the tobacco, leaving me with a slightly fruity tobacco and sweet taste on my palate. It is not for me.

VP Review Rating: 5/10

Californian Pink

Scent: lemonade.

Flavour: a good likeness to a pink lemonade, but it tastes a little distant. I’m wanting it to really burst over my taste buds an I’m not getting it.

On the inhale I a nice pink lemonade and then through on to the exhale I’m waiting for it to jump out at me and disappointingly it doesn’t. The flavour is there and I know exactly what it is. I find it very lightly flavoured, but is an ADV.

VP Review Rating: 6/10

Big Melon Twist

Scent: melon.

Flavour: ha ha, it is well documented that I am not a fan of bubblegum, but I have tried a lot and know what is good and what isn’t. So I have a melon bubblegum flavoured juice here and compared to others on the market, this is a really good flavour with good measures, as with the others it is slightly distant.

On the inhale I get a lovely juicy melon which just builds through the inhale. The melon continues on to the exhale and is joined by a back note of bubblegum and they mix together very well. If you like a fruity bubblegum it is worth a try, however it is not for me.

VP Review Rating: 5/10

Pop my Cherry

Scent: cherry.

Flavour: a really lovely cherry, but again it is a little distant, I want these flavours to pop.

On the inhale I get a cherry that becomes sweeter and fuller through the inhale. On to the exhale and once again I’m waiting for that explosion of flavour that doesn’t come. I’m left disappointed, but I can see the potential. An ADV.

VP Review Rating: 6/10

Berry my Nuts

Scent: coconut with a hint of raspberry.

Flavour: I should love this, two of my favourite flavours together. But, on the exhale I get this slightly unpleasant taste momentarily and then this lovely blend of the coconut and raspberry to finish.

On the inhale I don’t really get very much, a hint of raspberry right at the back of the inhale. On to the exhale and I get this (hard to explain) taste of old socks? briefly and then the coconut and raspberry just blossoms to finish. I find that initial unpleasant taste a little off putting.

VP Review Rating: 4/10

So to my conclusion, I find that Cheeky Monkey have brought some flavours that in my opinion need a little work. I really do find that nearly all of the flavours are really good blends, but the are not punchy enough. There is almost like a mask to the flavour in the juice. I don’t know enough about mixing, but it is like the flavours haven’t been taken in well by the rest of the ingredients. I hope that this will be taken as constructive criticism as I really do think the flavours are good and if they could be pushed further into the juice this would be an excellent range of juices.

The samples I received came in unicorn style bottles with child safety caps and tamper rings. They came in tins and they are all TPD/TRPR compliant. They have some great artwork on the labeling all in bright colours which make them stand out. They have a simple website which is clear and easy to navigate.
