Lovely juice. I baulked at first to get it due to the price but it's worth every penny. Nice rich flavour with great depth, nothing artificial tasting. Have just ordered another bottle and will try the shortfill soon.
By Gingerguy85 from Shetland
Definitely taste the chocolate and the mint (win win) didn't pick up in the vanilla much. But as a treat in the evenings it's well worth the money

I don't really do juice reviews, but at this price I felt a strong need to.
This juice is revolting, I have tried it in several different tanks and each of them report back the same.
This juice tastes like mint and a very nasty horrible mint at that, no dark chocolate, no vanilla, I do get an cooling sensation on exhale, but that's it!
I've had better vapes from the market than this.
Its disgusting..in flavour and price.
By RSH from UK
Rich dark chocolate mixed with French vanilla and perfectly balanced with peppermint, to make a thoroughly decadent treat well worth the price, and one of my absolute favourites.
By Joshkrz from Leeds
Really nice balenced flavour. The mint is the primary flavour here with hints of chocolate / caramel but nothing is overpowering. It's pretty expensive but the quality of the liquid is evident.

This juice has really become one of my favourite ADVs! Absolutely chocolatey minty treat with strong vanilla notes. It's really strong but smooth flavour wise, but anyone who likes minty juices should love this.
By FiveThou from Leics.
This is an excellent adv. A great balance of indulgent and refreshing. It's very satisfying, and never gets old.
Didn't think much of it at first, but it quickly grew on me. It's become my standard go-to for menthol/mint juices.
By Rachel from Leeds
A strong mint flavour mixed with dark chocolate and some hints of vanilla and a mild sugary aftertaste. If you like dark chocolate with strong mint flavour you will love this.

After reading some of the 5 star reviews I thought I would give this flavour a go. I love choc mint so was excited to receive this vape. On inhale it has a strong mint flavour with a hint of chocolate on exhale. I personally can’t tast the vanilla but that’s only my opinion. I have found the mint is a bit overpowering and takes over from the chocolate exhale. It would be nice if it was more balanced. I think it’s more suited for vapers that like mint flavours. However, don’t get me wrong the chocolate is there, it’s smooth and authentic to taste just overpowered by the mint! I can’t vape this all day as it becomes a bit sickly for me but it’s ok for a change up! I think it will just come down to personal taste. Comes in lovely packaging but a bit overpriced. I think it comes down to personal preference. Authentic flavours just overpowered by the mint!
By Gman from London
On Lower temperatures around 14 you can taste a bit of vanilla and sometimes on Excel you can taste a bit of chocolate but overall it is a mint orientated flavour. Personally I didn't like it too much but I think it's more than two personal preference, I like more of a balance. The product itself is solid in quality strong flavour and comes in one of the best packaging I have seen in a 10 ml bottle.
For me this is not an all day vape but it is quite refreshing and I might use it to mix with other flavours. If you like Strong Mints I would recommend this. It Does have a slight mint chocolate ice cream feel to it
By JoJoeBat from Carmarthenshire
One of my favourites. Smooth on the inhale with a nice minty kick to finish. Love this juice .
By Marta from España
Buscaba un líquido que supiera parecido a los bombones after eight, pues sí, pero suave, demasiado suave. No destaca la menta ni el chocolate, están equilibrados. Lo bueno es que puedes vapear todo el día que no empalaga. Pero quien busque un sabor mas dulce y fuerte, este, para mí, no lo es. Seguiré buscando, probaré uno que es edición especial de Navidad, igual se acerca más al after eight.
By Toby from Bristol
I tend to stick to menthol berry flavours but have this a shot. The chocolate isn’t overpowering but it’s definitely there. There is a nice menthol hit with a hint of vanilla at the end. Pretty sure I’d get bored of it for an adv but nice for a change up.
By Graeme4635 from Scotland
Usually a big fan of the Five Pawns range, especially Gambit and Black Flag. Had big expectations when ordering Bowdens Mate, but was left somewhat underwhelmed.
The mint flavour is definitely there but it is lacking a chocolate taste on the exhale. In summary it is just too bland to warrant the premium price tag that goes with it.
Don't get me wrong, it definitely "vape-able" but there are plenty other mild mint flavours out there that will do the job at a fraction of the cost.
By Ketty from Suffolk Coast
A really smooth juice the chocolate and mint are spot on. A bit more than I would like to pay but sometimes you need a treat.
I'm so glad I decided to try this. It costs a little more than I would usually pay for my liquids, but it's so worth the extra expense. The taste is beautiful, the balance between the chocolate and mint is spot on, neither flavours are too over powering. I love it and will be buying it again.
Boden's Mate is top quality e-juice and tastes fantastic. Works well in 6mg nic for me and I've not smoked since last year so worth every penny. Mixed 1ml Boden's Mate with Risen Enriched 1ml (in a 2ml tank) is superb and highly recommended. A wallet basher sure but better than spending it on actual tobacco any day of the week. Next day delivery from Vape Club. All good and feeling healthier for it.
By Giddy from Suffolk
Wow really nice vape, refreshing mint and velvety chocolate with a hint of vanilla on the exhale. Very smooth all day vape not too sweet not too minty.
By Jim from Devon
So, a relatively new vaper, I've been looking for the perfect e liquid that just was perfect from first drag. I've bought over 20 different liquids over the past few weeks and yet to find a single one that's really properly made me sit up and notice. Well, this is it.
Mint and choc flavours are predominant, with the barest hint of vanilla. But I could use this all day long. I'll be getting more, many more.
By Theastram from Blackpool, UK
I'm not a mint or menthol Vaper as it's just not my thing, least I thought that before buying this. This is premium juice, it is very minty/menthol but it's actually decent and I've had many, many worse juices that are not mint/menthol. Give it a go, you may really enjoy it.
