It's quite smooth and it isn't a bad juice, it's just I was hoping for more. The flavours are balanced but maybe too much, I can't pick them out. Sorry but it didn't meet the hype.

This is a relatively sweet eliquid flavour that has an interesting - and probably an acquired taste to it. I didn't really get the depth of the bourbon out of it that I was looking for, so whilst it was pleasant, I won't be repurchasing this flavour.
It is an expensive eliquid and I'm not confident it was worth the extra pennies. Personally, Puff Daddy by Bord02 had a far richer flavour. I do like the packaging though - it definitely looks the part.
I love the packaging but nothing else. I've tried a few different flavours from this brand but all of them seem to taste weird. I suppose you can vaguely taste the bourbon flavour but nothing else. I won't buy it again.

The description of this juice ticked all my boxes. I've had some disappointing purchases and thought that the high number of positive reviews, and its positioning as a rather 'exclusive' juice made me take the plunge. There is a lot going on here and, to my taste, too much. Everything was too intense and the flavours didn't harmonise into a pleasant experience. I really tried and got through about 2mL but called it quits after that. It was just too harsh and overpowering for me.

I've been vaping Castle Long and/or Castle Long Reserve edition for 4 years now and here are my conclusions on the range:
- Castle Long is far superior to any of the other Five Pawns flavours, which in my opinion aren't even worth trying.
- Castle Long Reserve is an even more accurate and complex impression of the original flavour description.
- Castle Long used to taste more complex, but since a few years ago when they began mass producing and moving away from small batch production, I've found the complexity has been eroded.
- Regardless, this flavour is the absolute best, a morning, midday, evening and night vape. It doesn't burn up your coil instantly (like many sweeter flavours), has savoury notes perfectly balancing off the sweet ones, and delivers a different tasting note with each puff.
If you are looking to buy as a one-off, I would strongly recommend you get the Reserve edition, and then sit back and begin to comprehend how nice e-liquids could be if all manufacturers matured the liquids in barrels.
Five Pawns is to conventional e-liquid brands what the Macallan 1926 single malt is to Lidl own brand whisk(e)y.
Anyone who thinks otherwise has simply not allowed time for their palate to adjust to the range of tasting notes on offer with this liquid.

Of the three Five Pawns juices i've tried this one is most like the description it gives. You can indeed taste the bourbon & the Coconut however they are the main two flavours to come through. Not really my cup of tea but I can see how some people would like it, so definitely an acquired taste. I do think that there are too many flavours going on to be honest but hey, its all subjective.
By FiveThou from Leics.
This is a fantastic liquid. It's such a refined, well-balanced flavour. An imaginative cocktail of flavours that blends together perfectly. Coconut, bourbon and almonds are all present and each captured expertly. It's very rich and has a strong, unmistakeable taste and smell. This is like a rare vintage of vape juices.
Top quality product.
For me this is one of the best e liquids I’ve ever come across. It’s sweet, but not over powering, has many different layers to it and goes perfectly with a coffee. The main thing for me is that the five pawns liquids have that smooth inhale and don’t have any of the chemical type aftertaste. It’s my everyday juice along with Black Flag Risen Enriched.
By Joffre from UK
This is a very generic sweet eliquid. with little distinction between the listed flavours. I was dissapointed in this one, its got a premium price tag (probably due to the fancy packaging) but it's nothing special.
By Snowdoggy from South Yorkshire
I'm sure we all have our favourite, definitive, 'go to' juice and so far, (with none tobacco flavour based juices), this is definitely mine and I have been making my way through the catalogue.
I stumbled upon Castle Long whilst ploughing through many of the other excellent juices available from Vape Club and was using my Arc 5 mtl device back then.
It was SO delicious on my mtl that I decided to buy another 10ml bottle last week to check if it really was as awesome as I thought and have, today, tried it on my Sub ohm device and it is just as awesome.
I'm really not convinced any other juice can ever be as good as this one or ever will be.
1) It totally lives up to its description (Kentucky Bourbon, Coconut, Almond, Brown Sugar, and Vanilla Bean.) which many juices don't. It is exactly what it says on the tin in my opinion.
2) Lovely thick clouds.
3) Smooth as silk. Little or no throat hit at 3mg. Not sure if that's good or bad.
Not cheap but well worth the money.
This will be a regular order for me and I highly recommend.
NB: I have also sampled Symmetry and Black Flag Risen from Five Pawns range and they are also both exceptional juices. I have heard good things and read really good reviews about Bowden's Mate too so I am going to order a bottle of that one next.

Not my kind of flavour , a bit like cardboard.
By Minimumist from Switzerland
I was a bit reticent to buy this at first, suspecting it would be too chemical. To my surprise, flavors were actually interesting, a nice, sweet blend that's neither too mellow nor too overpowering. This could be a regular go-to juice.
By Giddy from Suffolk
I would highly recommend this liquid if you are seeking a coconut flavour. If however you are wanting Kentucky Bourbon, you would be wasting your time and money with this.
By Mac from The Netherlands
I tried this for the 1st time and I have to say it is brilliant. When opening the bottle the smell was great and despite the first few draws being sorta weird tasting it has become one of my new favs. Will buy again.
By Nick from Switzerland
To be fair, this e-liquid is certainly everything it says in the description. Very complex profile, though at times the coconut and almond feel somewhat too overpowering on the inhale. There's a hint of whiskey on the exhale, but, rather unfortunately, it seems to get a bit overshadowed by the vanilla aftertaste. However, there is something in this liquid that irritates me (not quite sure what), and so I won't be ordering it anymore personally.. I would recommend it nonetheless, in spite of the fact that I have some reservations as set out above.
By G from Sofia
This is by far my favorite juice of all time. Complex flavor as usual with 5 pawns but the thing that wins me is the amazing touch the hazelnut adds. The whole combination while in flavor terms nothing like smoking really reminds me of the day when I was and the sensation of the flavor from it.
Say what you want for 5 pawns but any 5 pawns flavor compared to even the best cheaper flavors out there VGOD flavors, Wick Boulevard and other popular mainstream ones...the difference is they just feel dull to the flavor profile of 5 pawns. So many flavors mix with 5 pawns juice that it kinda makes it hard to get tired of the flavor you like from them. Although, I will admit I dislike most of their flavors :-). For example, Black Flag Risen Enriched, great reviews all around, but I can't say I vape it with much joy, although the complexity of it does give me a certain sense of satisfaction.
Thing is with 5 Pawns, I think most people will find one or two of their flavors to be what they want and what they like. I have also noticed different people sense different things from their flavor. For example from Gambit I taste the apple once on every 200 puffs and other people swear they feel it all the time.
All in all, if I could afford it I would vape Castle Long all day long.
By Jim from Devon
Five Pawns make my fave ADV- Bowden's Mate, so it was only fair that I try a few more of their products starting with this...
It's got a whole lot of flavours I like; coconut, almond, brown sugar and vanilla bean. With a bit of bourbon thrown in for good measure (!)
I'm not 100% sure that I can make our brown sugar or almond, but I do get the other three flavours. It's a good liquid, and something different to the overtly sweet vapes I usually go for. Give it a go, their stuff is always top quality.
By Britannia Standard from Suffolk
Beautiful product , beautiful packaging , not so keen on the price tag ..
Upon trying this liquid for the first time, I was expecting a strong concentrated vanilla taste,, I was soo wrong this liquid if beautiful especially at Christmas time. The super smooth and luxurious taste With big punches of flavour the instant hit of almond which tastes more like hazelnut for an added surprise. I do feel that this is like, A Coffee and almond cake with Ferro Roche on top . On its own without food or drink it is a savoury foodie delight . I have previously seen a comment in previous reviews on this product stating it goes with coffee.
Upon vaping this brilliant liquid with a cafe Nero latte it takes my mind back to a Paris coffee shop , nice memory seeing as I'm in sunny Suffolk and it was raining at the time
brilliant product but not such brilliant price ..
By Frenchnes from London
i actually bought the Castle Long RESERVE, which i can't find on the website now.
Product is good, i really appreciate it with a coffee, or a beer... But i can't smoke it all day long. it's a bit "too much". Price of course is not justified but that's marketing for you. And it looks nice indeed...
By Samski from Wales
Disappointed tbh coconut is really overpowering and doesn't let the other flavours come through couldn't taste anything else but nut and coconut no bourbon or vanilla whatsoever.. 3/10 for the presentation of the liquid is great.. 10/10 for delivery!!
