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.

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.

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.

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.
