In for review are a handful of E-liquids from the Jac Vapour Blend 22 range.

‘Making better products is every product designers goal but making products that change people’s lives for the better, is better’.

That’s a quote from Andy Logan, head of products at Jac Vapour. I don’t think anyone can argue with that statement and Andy can back up those words with the vast array of E-liquid, vape kits and accessories they have on offer.

In fact, the Jac Vapour S17 vape pen was hailed by GQ magazine as one of their top 10 coolest things in the world.

How cool is that?

To say this Edinburgh based manufacturer have experience in the vaping industry would be an understatement. They’ve been hard at it from 2010 onwards, constantly striving to change smokers into vapers.

As well as producing flavour concentrates, short fills, D.I.Y e-liquids and nicotine shots, Jac Vapour have a solid list of flavours in their Premium, Standard and Jac Original ranges to name but a few. They have regularly appeared on our best Tobacco and best menthol lists.

Today we’re taking a look at the new JAC Vapour Blend 22 range.

What Can We Expect From The Blend 22 Range by Jac Vapour?

The Jac Vapour Blend 22 vape juice range is comprised of Fruit, Menthol and Tobacco flavours. They’re all available in 10ml TPD compliant bottles with child safety caps included.

Only available as a 50VG/50PG juice ratio, they’re going to be ideal for a majority of devices. However, they do come in 6mg, 12mg and 18mg freebase nicotine strengths so you’ll still need to match the power and type of your device accordingly.

6mg is suggested for current smokers on 10 cigs a day, 12mg for those smoking a pack a day and 18mg is ideal for heavy smokers.

The label rolling process on the bottles looks a little uneven for those with an eagle eye but it’s certainly nothing to cry about. They also have a water repellent, tacky feel so they should stay in place if dropped in water.

Peeling the outer label away reveals a list of instructions on how to fill a tank with the e-liquid along with a list of possible side effects.

The nicotine warning is large and clear but reading the nicotine and juice ratios may be awkward for those visually impaired. That’s especially the case with Lemon Sherbet.

JacVapour have kept it simple and straightforward. After all, there’s not really a great deal of space to work with when it comes to 10ml bottles.

Today I’ll Mostly Be Vaping On..

I used the Uwell Caliburn G2 Pod Kit to test the range of e-liquids. It’s a great kit to use with 50VG/50PG juice ratios and brings out plenty of flavour.

The UN2 0.8ohm G Coil was used and airflow was set to my preferred restrictive direct lung vape.

Blend 22 Tobacco

Jac Vapour Blend 22 TobaccoJac Vapour Says:

A beautifully balanced tobacco, giving a mild flavour, with a slightly sweet aftertaste to offset the smokiness of the tobacco flavouring.

I Say:

For A Tobacco inspired profile, Blend 22 packs a lot of flavour in. There’s nothing subtle about this one – it’s an ‘in your face’ vape!

There are a lot of nutty back notes floating around and the tones and texture are on point.

It’s not a sweet leaf Tobacco, either. It carries a much drier experience on the exhale yet is still a highly authentic blend.

Blend 22 lends itself more to the flavour generally associated with a cigar. It’s quite rich and earthy tasting. In among the nutty back notes there’s a woodiness that tends to linger the longest, sitting on the palate.

I can still pick out some sweetness but it’s very much at the back end of the exhale. I prefer more of it in my Tobacco e-liquids, personally.

If you like your cigars, Blend 22 will be one to try out. There’s plenty of tone, texture and richness on offer.

Golden Rolling Tobacco

Jac Vapour Golden Rolling TobaccoJac Vapour Says:

The perfect tobacco for those who love rolling tobacco. A Virginia blend that offers the same taste profile you crave.

I Say:

Now that’s more like it! Golden Rolling Tobacco is very authentic for flavour output. These Virginian Tobacco leaves are excellent, creating a musky smell on the palate. The flavour holds up well and contains a few creamy notes towards the end of the exhale.

It’s also laced with sweetness to attenuate the flavour. This is your classic Tobacco experience complete with musty, earthy notes that linger around the taste buds.

Although the sweetness is there, Golden Rolling Tobacco is still quite a dry vape. It’s one of those flavours that will have you reaching for a drink within minutes of vaping.

That’s not to take anything away from the creation. It’s highly authentic and carries more than enough Tobacco blending to keep my interest levels peaked.

Sherbet Lemon

Jac Vapour Lemon SherbetJac Vapour Says:

Just as you remember the boiled sweets, sweet lemon shell with a fizzy sherbet centre. Tastes of lemon throughout, delicious.

I Say:

I knew what I was getting with Sherbet Lemon when I took a whiff of the bottle nozzle! The aroma is quite strong – quite Lemon..

Plenty of sweetness from the Lemon gets pulled in on the inhale and joins forces with a boiled sweet on the way out.

This version of the well known tooth breaker doesn’t contain as much sharpness as I’d hoped for. It’s still very good but just lacking that extra sparkle and clarity.

The citrus content is on point but I definitely can’t pick out any fizz from the Sherbet which is a bit of a shame. This version carries more bitterness on the back notes.

Without that Sherbet, it’s a bit on the flat side. It’s ok but doesn’t represent what’s written in the description. At least not for me..

Sour Blue Slush

Jac Vapour Sour Blue SlushJac Vapour Says:

Packed full of sour blue raspberry flavour, just like the slushies you crave on a hot summers day.

I Say:

You’ll get sweet lips as you inhale on this one! Sour Blue Slush does what it says in the description. It’s packed full of sweetness and the Raspberry isn’t too sour, although sour properties are still on show.

There’s nothing in the way of Coolada to speak of and I’m quite happy because this version allows the full succulence of the Raspberry to escape. I’m not distracted by an icy cold inhale.

If it’s in there it just leaves the slightest of tickles on the lips.

Raspberry is the mainstay of the profile and manages to avoid the usual powdery texture often associated with the fruit. It wraps itself up in the sweeter notes to great effect, making Sour Blue Slush a tasty vape treat.

It’s cram packed full of flavour and is indeed a very worthy summer accompaniment.

Spearmint

Jac Vapour SpearmintJac Vapour Says:

Spearmint is a sweet, minty flavour, giving a rounded, delicate mint flavour, without the cooling aftertaste of menthol.

I Say:

Spearmint provides a nice, smooth inhale with plenty of sweetness around the edges. This is your classic chewy Spearmint and there’s plenty of flavour during the exhale.

It’s a very clean and refreshing taste, delivering constantly with every vape.

You tend to know what you’re getting with a simple, single flavour profile like this. The Caliburn G2 pod kit brings out the best there is to offer and Spearmint definitely delivers the goods.

The sweetness factor is bob on. Not too much yet never underplayed. It’s balanced very well with the mint. I’m glad Jac Vapour have omitted any cooling agent because Spearmint already tastes fresh enough.

It doesn’t bring anything new to the table but still likely to be popular among new vapers for it’s accessibility.

Stars & Stripes Tobacco

Jac Vapour Stars and Stripes Tobacco

Jac Vapour Says:

A toasted American tobacco flavour, giving you a rich experience.

I Say:

This is a very sweet leaf tobacco and one that I very much like. It’s rich in tone and very aromatic.

The inhale is silky smooth and provides a few oaky back notes before unleashing a multitude of sweet tobacco leaves on the exhale.

To me, it’s very much like a hand rolled Virginian tobacco complete with its salty and sour taste. They help to lift the flavour alongside one or two peppery notes.

Stars And Stripes Tobacco is about as authentic as it can get for this e-liquid category because it’s crammed with smoky flavour. It’s even happy to leave it after taste behind for added enjoyment.

I would highly recommend this one to the new vaper, struggling to rid themselves of the dreaded fags.

True Menthol

Jac Vapour True MentholJac Vapour Says:

A fresh, cooling sensation, perfect for users who like a true menthol experience. If you like menthol, you’ll definitely like this.

I Say:

True Menthol has a minty aroma when smelling the bottle nozzle so what’s it like to vape?

Well it provides a massive wake up call to the rear of the throat! It builds up quite intensely during the inhale and that sharp Menthol really does leave its mark.

It cuts in heavily during the inhale, the way you would expect Menthol to do and that icy cold sensation is omnipresent after as well as during the vape.

The mint I mentioned at the beginning is definitely in there which helps to boost the overall flavour appeal. You don’t tend to find much with a straight Menthol vape.

Yes, True Menthol is exactly what you’re getting here. It’s cooling, refreshing and quite invigorating as a vaping experience.

I would go as far to suggest it’s one of the better Menthol flavours out there because it hits harder than Mike Tyson yet still delivers enough flavour to keep it interesting.

Highly recommended to any vaper that used to crave Menthol cigarettes. Since they’re no longer available True Mint is the ideal replacement.

Union Jack Tobacco

Jac Vapour Union Jack TobaccoJac Vapour Says:

Smooth undertone and balanced mellow tobacco notes, to give a rounded experience.

I Say:

A mustiness builds during the inhale with Union Jack Tobacco and it loiters on the palate for the duration of the vape. Just when I thought Stars And Stripes Tobacco was going to be my favourite, this one comes along.

Why does it beat it? These tobacco leaves have an added depth and richness to them. There are less of the woody, oaky notes and more of the herbs and spices – I like that, I like that a lot!

As a consequence the exhale isn’t as dry. Yes it’s still somewhat on the salty side but it combines well with a perfect level of sweetness infused into those leaves.

There are a few earthy back notes thrown in but they’re no where near to the level found in some Tobacco profiles.

I’ll find myself coming back to this again and again. No doubt the newer vaper will too.

Final Review verdict

Overall I’m very impressed with the four Tobacco based e-liquids. That’s because the flavours were bright and poppy and each one carried distinct characteristics. They were either woody, earthy, nutty, creamy or sweet. Each one brought something different to the vape.

True Menthol was exactly what it says on the bottle and the raspberry content found in Sour Blue Slush was different from the run of the mill. Spearmint was very well replicated by Jac Vapour and my only niggle was the flatness of Sherbet Lemon.

The flavours were consistent over every vape and overall they matched their descriptions.

Vapour production was better than expected for a 50VG/50PG ratio but then I was direct lung vaping, albeit very restrictive.

I think the Jac Vapour 22 range is perfectly set up for the new vaper. Someone looking to replicate the smoky experience of a cigarette or starting out with simple yet effective single flavour e-liquids.

Great work from Jac Vapour!

jac-vapour-blend-22-vape-juice-reviewJac Vapour return with their new Blend 22 range of e-liquids. These eight are highly suited to the new vaper coming off the cigs and split evenly between simple single flavours. This is the audience I would highly recommend them to. There's even an intense Menthol to keep those cravings at bay. Great work from Jac Vapour!
