Digbys Juices: Dr Jekyll
Following the slight disappointment (for my tastes) of Digbys Hooligan we are taking a look at Dr Jekyll.
Expectations are high from the ‘E-liquid Brand of the Year 2014’ so lets wait no more!
Also, if you want to take a little look behind the scenes, check out this short video from Martyn Parker.
Digbys Say: “If you like subtle flavours then perhaps you should avoid this heavy bodied anise monster, layers of flavour that creep around when used in a tank, unleash the Dr on a dripper and you will be faced with Mr Hyde, a true monster of a juice. A heavy Anise, Wormwood body with citrus high notes and a slightly bitter but creamy mint base.”
E Cig/Tank used in this review: Aspire CF with Aspire Atlantis
The first and most obvious thing here is the colour, it kind of looks like a radioactive juice when it’s sitting in the clearomiser. The good thing is this is not a toxic vape. First impression are that Dr Jekyll is quite a complex flavour.
It initially comes across like the Anise is going to be too overpowering on the inhale but it mellows on the exhale with a mix of citrus and mint.
The aftertaste leaves my tongue tingling as if I have just done a shot of Ouzo. That and my mouth feels like it’s being tricked into thinking I’ve been chewing on a Black jack sweet.
Digbys have done a great job at combining all these flavours and in a tank it works a treat. I have found I can vape this for an hour or so, almost like it’s a palette cleanser before I move back onto other flavours.
Not an all day e-liquid for me but at the same time it is a very good juice. It wouldn’t surprise me if Anise lovers will use this in their all day vaping arsenal.
With a PG/VG mix vapour volume was excellent.
Digbys make all their juices in house in a sealed lab with full air filtration ISO 6 clean room. Their juices are actually made within a Laminar flow cabinet (ISO Level 3, Class 1) which are used by medical/pharmaceutical companies to create a particle free environment.

I had my fingers crossed on Dr Jekyll as I’m a fan of Anise juices and it really didn’t disappoint.
Quite a complex Anise flavour that seems to benefit from the citrus and mint additions. If you are a fan of Anise give this a try!
