California’s signature vapor liquid flows forth from the flavor labs in sunny Irvine, where Five Pawns continues to build a nationwide following for its gourmet E-Juices.

With the company’s name standing as tribute to the five traditional tastes of the culinary world, Five Pawns offers its labors up as tribute to its own esteemed customer.

They are be a bit more pricey than the discount bottles at your local shop.

Their steady stream of new customers and reputation in the vaping community seem to indicate that you get what you pay for.

We’re always looking for new flavors as well as new perspectives on what e liquid can be, and so a taste of the finer things in life with Five Pawns is exactly the kind of thing we do around here.


Signature Series

The signature series from Five Pawns is a celebration of flavor traditions, with each handcrafted juice taking a focus on one of the five basic elements of flavor.

Absolute Pin

This deep and sumptuous vapeFive Pawn Absolute Pin combines the bold spice of cinnamon with smooth Irish cream and caramel flavors, then adds a hit of the legendary liquid known as absinthe.

There’s no actual absinthe in the liquid, so don’t expect hallucinations or an inclination for writing 19th century literature, but the wormwood essence gives it an intoxicating profile all its own.

Bowden’s Mate

The timeless flavors of a gourmet after dinner mint are a hallmark of high class, and this flavor takes the combination to a whole new level.

It brings together rich chocolate flavor with the vibrant sharpness of mint, adding a French Vanilla undertone to make the experience all the more decadent.


Five Pawns GambitPractically everyone loves warm apple pie, and Gambit is Five Pawn’s tribute to the classic American dessert.

The juicy sweetness of apples is joined by a note of fresh baked crust and finished with caramel, French vanilla ice cream, and unsweetened whipped cream to elevate the flavor far beyond the typical kitchen window.


Many late night vapers find the combination of creamy peanut butter and bright banana to be an irresistible combination, but have never experienced it like this.

Grandmaster adds a chord of caramel flavor to the layers of richness to provide depth and balance.


Five Pawn QueensideBest described as mature vintage Creamsicle, Queenside brings a medley of citrus essences together to support the bold blood orange that is the focus of this flavor.

A touch of French vanilla adds the classic creaminess that ensured a box of the frozen confections barely last a week in any American household.

Mixology Edition

The Mixology Edition was Five Pawns’ expansion to the original line of 5 flavors that represent the namesake of the company.

These flavors are created to pay tribute to iconic spirits from around the world.

A limited edition version of the flavor, Castle Long Reserve, is aged in steel barrels and offered on a seasonal basis, so if you like this one stay on the lookout for the next release.

Fifth Rank

With the Brooklyn original known as the Lime Rickey in its’ DNA, Fifth Rank puts a new spin on the cocktail with the addition of sweet champagne to the lime and effervescence characteristic of the drink.

Five Pawns deepens this refreshing flavor with sweet cream, roasted almond and vanilla bean to create yet another new twist on an old favorite.
