The pawn shape prompted us initially of the drip tip as did liquid bottles sitting on our tables. The dictionary definition defines a Pawn as 2. (noun) Someone which is manipulated to further another person’s purposes. Five Pawn thought of their liquid much like the “pawn.” It’s fitting that the game of chess (a sophisticated & complex game) uses the pawn.
The pawn moves only forward & is often sacrificed (much like Five Pawn liquid). Five Pawn decided to start with five sophisticated and complex flavors. Additionally, there are five simple tastes known to man; sweet, sour, bitter, salty, & umami (which is described as savory). Five Pawn initial offering has a flavor that satisfies one of each of the five flavors. Hence the name Five Pawns & “It’s your move….”
Everything is made by hand and in tiny batches. As you’ll see on our bottle & packaging labels, all numbers match, & Five Pawn shipments consist of 160 bottles per lot.
Five Pawn invested a lot of time and money in our facility and our flavors. The five offerings were in development for about six months before being released. Five Pawn’re perfectionists and refuse to allow any liquid to leave our facility before it’s perfect. Five Pawn use only natural USP / food grade ingredients and the best premium pharmaceutical grade nicotine.
Five Pawn disclose the distinct flavors for tasting note reasons, but many other ingredients help enhance what you taste. Five Pawn use only the best ingredients sourced both domestically & locally, and all liquid is made in the state of California.
All of Five Pawnblends result in a 50% VG / 50% PG combination & come only in 30ml bottles. Flavors are extracted from base ingredients, & Five Pawn offer each flavor in 0mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, and 24mg nicotine doses.
Five Pawns lineup is Gambit, Castle Long, Grandmaster, which are all terrific, & the two Black Flag variations, which are equally nice. Bowden’s Mate, Queenside, & Symmetry Six, however, are not my appropriate cups of tea.
All Five Pawns liquids are tremendous quality, intensely delicious, & mostly very smooth. They were produced by people who understand a thing or two about how to artfully mix flavors. I daresay that DIY cloners would have a tough time repeating such unique blends.
As to whether Five Pawns e-liquids are deserving their somewhat high price tags, I’ll leave that up to each vaper to choose. Although the local juice market is shifting as new & more compelling hardware makes inroads, & the health interests about Diketones gain traction, along with rising FDA regulations, I think it’s obvious that the people behind Five Pawns are savvy at the market. If anyone can succeed, they can.
