Real Stories: Why I decided to Vape - Nick Henney - Part 1
by Nick Henney, Commercial Filmmaker
Verb: to inhale and exhale the vapor produced by an electronic cigarette or similar device.
There are a lot of dates being thrown around these days in the vaping community about when products were introduced into the market, which products should be grandfathered in at the proposed regulation date, and which products should have to meet the FDA strict, and some say draconian regulations. For me living in Fort Wayne, Indiana (the butt of many jokes, but admittedly middle America), I first heard about vaping through a radio ad during my morning commute in 2009. The idea lit my mind on fire. I was then 29 and had been a pack-and-a-half to a two-pack-a-day smoker for over 11 years. Full disclosure, I had smoked cigarettes since the age of 15, (sorry Mom) but didn’t pick up a real habit until I was 18. Admittedly, I loved it. Unlike so many people I knew that constantly lamented the fact that they had ever even started, I loved smoking. I never wanted to quit and simply ignored the toll it was taking on my body. I ignored the way my lungs burned in the morning, the smell that I carried everywhere with me like a signature cologne and the physical limitations it put on me. Running and riding my bike weren’t nearly as cool as smoking. I was even able to overcome two bouts of what my doctor diagnosed as, "Asthmatic Bronchitis" per year, once in the spring and once in the fall. I rationalized this as the side effect of the many factory jobs I had throughout my early 20’s.

There's a firestorm raging in the vaping industry. The FDA's strict and unreasonably expensive regulation requirements are forcing vaping product manufacturers and retailers alike to make a brutal decision. Spend the time, money, and effort to comply with the regulations by August of 2018, hope for an act of Congress to change the predicate date, or eventually prepare to stop conducting business. For many companies, it's not much of a decision. If you don't have the money to get through this process, and there is no change in the predicate date, your business will probably cease to exist legally. We see that as a tragedy on many levels.

It's Summer! Time for BBQ's, cooling off by the pool, and getting together with friends and family to share stories, food, and laughs -- so we've compiled some great summer drink recipes to complement your favorite Taken Three flavors. Kibitzer is a unique and complex flavor consisting of grilled pineapple upside-down cake. Tasting every bit like a traditional pineapple upside-down cake, this blend uses a grilled pineapple note to bring out the sweetness instead of it being tart or sour. You'll taste a pineapple that appears to have been grilled over a wood-burning flame and balances well with a moist yellow cake and caramel-like pineapple reduction. Complement your Kibitzer vaping experience with this grilled pineapple smoothie, but first, let's learn how to grill a pineapple.

Times are changing fast for the vaping industry and, as a result, transparency and brutal honesty are required now more than ever. The people here at Five Pawns think it’s time we grew up as an industry and focused less on the circus of rebellion and more on all of the good we can do collectively if the world had a better sense of what vaping means to ex-smokers. We believe we have to elevate our discourse and behavior to be taken more seriously. The more seriously we are taken, the more people will understand the logic of our position. The more people hear and understand our position, commitment, and passion, the more good we can do together.

Captain of High End Mods Japan, reviewer and Admin of several influential Industry Groups, Kats Ikeda braved through Tokyo rush hour subway mayhem to find me in Shinjuku. This is not a small feat, and if you've ever googled, "Tokyo Subway at Rush Hour" you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. The NYC subway doesn't even compare to the "pack 'em in" mentality in Tokyo. I was honored to be sought out by such an influential figure within our industry. We had been social media pals for quite some time, so it was great to finally meet him in the flesh. Bartosz, of the infamous Gepetto Mods introduced us after suggesting I make the phone call to Kats while in Kyoto. He met me without hesitation in the busiest railway station in the world of all places.

Thanks to our Five Pawns community and fantastic authorized retail partners for the support you provide. 2016 has been a record-breaking year for us so far and we’re grateful you’ve been along for the ride. We want to update you on the incredible milestones we’ve been able to reach thus far with you by our side.
Double Barrel Castle Long Reserve - Edition V -
Your response to our latest CLR edition blew us away. In the first 24 hours it was available online, we shipped 23% more than last year’s edition. We’re thrilled that this masterful blend is being so well received.
As the first and only double barrel liquid, Double Barrel Castle Long Reserve - Edition V - offers a complex flavor profile of toasted coconut, roasted almond, brown sugar, Madagascar vanilla bean, French vanilla, Kentucky bourbon, and two distinct oaks.
Our customers asked and we listened. Our new lifestyle brand Taken Three is about providing a different experience to a broader market. In just the first two weeks of its launch (and pre-sale), Taken Three has opened 30% more retail locations. Look for it near you starting April 2016.
Taken Three showcases delicious, approachable all-day blends at an all day price, like glazed lemon zest sugar cookie, grilled pineapple upside-down cake, and banana Boston cream pie. These blends have higher VG concentrations and are executed without the use of artificial sweeteners.
If you’re just trying out our products, we’re grateful to have you as part of the Five Pawns community. And if you’ve been with us for the long haul, we can’t say thank you enough. Our pledge is to continue creating exceptional vapor liquids with complex and high-quality flavor profiles. We are always looking to evolve as a company, and we want to acknowledge and thank you for your constant support during the journey. 2016 is just getting started, and we can’t wait for you to see what we have in store in the months to come.

As a pioneer in the vapor liquid industry, Five Pawns is committed to the quality of our vapor liquids. Our vision has always been long-term. We founded and built our company on the principle that one day, FDA regulation and approval would be a requirement for our products. We are poised and ready to comply with this standard if and when the time comes.
There is currently no standardized or approved methodology for testing e-liquids. That needs to change. We want to assure our retailers and customers that Five Pawns is 100% dedicated to working to develop a standard methodology by which all e-liquids can be tested and held accountable.Read More

Castle Long Reserve will be available at participating authorized retailers on August 1st, 2014 and may be found online with said retailers. Most stores that will have CLR will be willing to ship nationwide as of that date (many are even taking pre-orders now). Five Pawns lets our retail partners have all the fun while it’s in stock. Therefore, Castle Long Reserve will not be available on fivepawns.com until a bit later in the fall. We will make announcements when it’s available for purchase on our site and thank you for your support.
Castle Long Reserve has been aged and steeped in a treated oak barrel for three weeks. You’ll taste toasted coconut, roasted almond, brown sugar, two different vanillas (Madagascar vanilla bean and French vanilla), Kentucky bourbon, and charred oak.
Liquid extracted from the barrels has been filtered using a proprietary filtration process before bottlingRead More

Five Pawns does something few mixologists in the industry can do. They near-perfectly blend a wide variety of flavors, some that seemingly wouldn’t work well in a mix, in some of the most unique concoctions imaginable. Not only that, but they seem to have the ability to take flavors you wouldn’t normally enjoy and mix them into a mouth-watering and savory vape. While the price of each bottle may deter some, let me tell you, it’s well worth it. When I first started vaping, I was paying $10 for 10ml of something like an RY4, and that was about as complex as it got. There’s nothing wrong with ordering a month’s supply of dirt cheap e-liquid online, so long as it keeps you from smoking. Five Pawns is for the flavor connoisseur, the vaper who’s tried the rest, but is continually looking for the best.Read More

By popular demand, I’ve added a list of all liquids that received “Street Shout Out”. You’ll see it over to the right under the Information section.
Many thanks to Lynn and Bud for searching through my videos and compiling this for me. If I’ve missed any, please let me know.
In the ECC Pt. 2 video, we talked to the folks from Five Pawns and we tried their Castle Long Reserve. It didn’t get a “Street Shout Out” because the Throat Hit (TH) was a little weak. Problem is, I’ve been vaping it. A lot. Like a real lot. Finally last night I put it in my Russian (you know, the one with the new micro coil) and I got a very satisfying throat hit off of it.Read More

The early days of e-cigarettes saw a plethora of flavors hitting the market. Watermelon, Apple, Blueberry, Vanilla and wild flavors like Gummy Bear, or even Waffles and Syrup. While sweet flavors pleased many there was a segment of the vape community that had moved away from the tobacco type flavors yet longed for something different, a taste that grown ups would enjoy.
Five pawns burst on the scene a few months ago with a line up of mature, extraordinary flavors that one user described as better than the finest of fine cigars. A blend of almost savory refined flavors with a touch of sweetness.Read More
