I’m really pleased to be testing out the new Rachael Rabbit e-liquid from Jack Rabbit Vapes.
From the flavour profiles, they sound right up my alley!
Updated 24/04/2019: Added the new Blueberry, Citrus and Pineapple
Those that know me, know that if I was ever stuck on a desert island and only had one type of e-liquid to vape, it would be something fruity, with a cooling kick.
What Can We Expect From Jack Rabbit Vapes Rachael Rabbit Range?
Jack Rabbit Vapes was started by two “vape fanatics” in 2015, originally mixing for friends and family to create multi-layered vapes to their taste.
They’ve had some strong success with their original Jack Rabbit range, combining fruits, deserts and bakery flavours. You can check out our full Jack Rabbit E-Liquid review here.
Now they’re back with a whole new range called Rachael Rabbit.
The descriptions on these are all about the fruits, with each one listing 3 different fruit flavours, as well as a slight cooling kick.
I received all four of the Rachael Rabbit range in 50ml Short fill bottles, so you can add your own nic shot to bring it up to 60ml.
However they also do this range in a Nic Salt 10ml bottle.
Since I’ve had them for a little over a week, I have also run them through my Kayfun Lite to test them out as mouth to lung vapes, and see how my coils fared.
These were all sent to me free of charge for the purpose of this review from Jack Rabbit Vapes (thank you!), but as always, I will report back honestly with what I find.
Remember, taste is subjective, and if I don’t like something, that’s not to say you won’t!
Rachael Rabbit E-Liquid – Lemon, Pear and Raspberry – 0mg 70/30 VG PG
Jack Rabbit Say:
Tangy raspberry with citrus tones from sweet lemon, are complemented with ripe and juicy pear notes. With koolada to round the flavour profile and produce a truly unique e-liquid.
Quite a sweet cloying smell comes from this one, not like fresh fruit at all, quite candied.
So I’m curious to see how it vapes.
On the inhale you’re hit with an absolute blast of raspberry, drowning out all the other flavours.
You definitely need to like a sweet raspberry to enjoy this one!
However it felt pretty authentic, with the feeling you might get a raspberry seed stuck in your teeth at any moment.
(Happily you won’t)
Exhaling gives a chance for the juice to breathe a little, the lemon is more of a lemonade sort of flavour, and the whole effect is rather like drinking a tiny little pink cocktail.
The pear isn’t a terribly pronounced flavour on it’s own, but it balances the raspberry and lemon nicely.
It’s a flavour that you can just about catch on the back of your tongue, and so you go back looking for it again.
Quite a sweet e-liquid, but there’s some complexity that makes it really enjoyable.
Rachael Rabbit E-Liquid – Orange, Mango and Passion Fruit – 0mg 70/30 VG PG
Jack Rabbit Say:
Juicy orange, sweet mango and luscious passion fruit; it ‘s bursting with exotic, tropical goodness! A touch of cool tunes up the flavour to give the ultimate fruity experience.
Opening this up I was immediately getting a lovely exotic cocktail from the aroma.
On the inhale you get a strong orange and mango blend, both flavours are nicely balanced and the mango especially feels juicy and fresh.
The cooling makes it a little less overwhelming than some orange and mango combinations.
Exhaling and the passion fruit comes to the fore.
This is not a flavour that I’ve often vaped, and I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about it.
It’s a little bit on the perfumey side of things, and combined with the cooling it leaves a slightly odd aftertaste.
Not unpleasant, but noticeable.
Overall, it’s a nicely balanced e-liquid, and the more I vaped it, the more I enjoyed it.
When they say it has a touch of cool, I agree that it’s not overpowering at all, it feels like iced tropical drink!
Rachael Rabbit E-Liquid – Pomegranate, Kiwi and Watermelon – 0mg 70/30 VG PG
Jack Rabbit Say:
Exotic kiwi fruit blended with deep, sweet, pomegranate juiciness perfectly balanced with delicate tones of fresh watermelon, with a touch of ice, this flavour is truly special.
Another interesting combination! The smell coming off this is kiwi to the max.
Kiwi is definitely the dominant flavour throughout the vape on this one, though as you inhale you get a little bit of the tartness of the pomegranate.
Again this is nicely balanced by the cooling elements.
Exhaling and the watermelon blends in with that kiwi, rich and luscious!
There’s a really clean finish to this one, with the cooling note just lifting things and getting you ready for more.
I’m not sure I’ve ever vaped kiwi before, but after trying this one, it’s something I’m going to look out for.
Out of all the flavours, this one is definitely something I could see as an all day vape.
Rachael Rabbit E-Liquid – Redcurrant, Grape and Cherry – 0mg 70/30 VG PG
Jack Rabbit Say:
Deep, Juicy Redcurrants complemented with sweet dark grapes and undertones of fresh cherries brings a group of dark forest fruits and a touch of koolada gives a slight cooling effect.
This is the one that I was most worried about!
Grape is one of those flavours that so often goes wrong.
Doing the smell test, I was a little worried that this was going to be a little too artificial, as the smell was quite syrupy.
On the inhale you get the whole medley of red fruits, with cherry being especially pronounced.
It’s a little bit on the sweet side for me this one, though the redcurrant gives it a hint of tartness.
Exhaling and there’s a lot of the grape coming through, the cooling here is probably the most subtle of the four.
But it does just enough to help lift this and stop it getting bogged down in all the rich red fruit flavours.
If I was eating a Black Forest Gateau, this is definitely the vape I would choose to go along with it.
Rich and complex, and none of the artificial taste I was worried about.
Rachael Rabbit E-Liquid – Blueberry, Citrus & Pineapple – 0mg 70/30 VG PG
Jack Rabbit Say:
Juicy ripe Blueberries bursting with flavour, brought to life with a zesty Citrus and a sweet tropical Pineapple; a multi-layered e juice flavour that keeps give through every taste.
We’ve got a new one added to the line up here!
Opening this up the smell is very fruity, but without any particularly dominant note. Pineapple is the most noticeable.
On the inhale you can definitely get the pineapple, but it’s not too overbearing.
The blueberry is surprisingly subtle, but it gives a lovely body to the vape.
With these two flavours I was worried it was going to be too sweet and not something I could vape much.
On the exhale, that worry is blown out of the water!
There’s lots of lovely citrus flavours, it lightens the whole vape and makes it something I would be happy to vape all day (every day!).
It’s a really tasty vape, and a great addition to their range.
Final Review Verdict
I’m a big fan of e-liquid that have a few different flavours in them, and I think this is one of the areas where direct to lung vaping really shines.
All four of these e-liquids manage to create a compelling, fruity narrative.
They really are e-liquids where you get the different notes hitting at different stages of the vape, and I can’t see myself getting bored of them for this reason.
The cooling elements are subtle, and do just right amount to really lift these.
Each one comes across like a perfectly iced cocktail, with the different flavours getting a chance to shine.
If you’re not a fan of koolada, but enjoy fruit flavours, I would say these are definitely still worth a try – they might just change your mind!
Finally I have to give them props for using very little sweetener, although some of the e-liquids taste sweet, I think that’s down to the fruit flavours themselves.
Certainly looking at the state of my coils after a week, there was fairly minimal gunking up.
The range feels like a class act from some great mixologists, confident and assured.
They don’t beat you about the head with the flavours, but allow each one to play out just the right amount.
