For Five Pawns' Castle Long Reserve, normally 30ml costs $37.50. So 60ml for $42.50 is an absolutely insane price.

So Castle Long Reserve is a very high quality, esoteric vape juice. The flavor is absolutely amazing and complex. I'm not a "vape lyfe" snob in any way, just an ex-tobacco fiend who switched to vaping years ago and now really enjoys it. But this juice really is something else. I used to buy one (30ml) bottle once a year and use it exclusively on my dripper, back when I was using one. They steep and age the juice in oak barrels and the juice has amazing flavors/ingredients to begin with.

Yes, $42.50 for 60ml is expensive as is, and most vapers know you can buy 120ml or more of high quality for the same price or even much less still. I always buy from thevaporchef during their sales and get 120ml of Hobbes Blood for $38.50-$41.25 each. It's my daily vape flavor. But Five Pawns is definitely on a different level, usually a waste on sub-ohm all day tanks (unless you're super baller), and usually reserved for special occasions or when really in the mood. At least IMHO.

Castle Long Reserve is usually released seasonally and posted on Five Pawns' website. It's sort of confusing because there's nothing recently posted on their website, and it's showing as a new product on MVS. I've never personally seen 60ml bottles of the Reserve but the picture shows a 60ml bottle with a bottled date of May 4, 2017. I thought maybe this was a listing error but it looks like the real thing.

Shipping is free above $75, otherwise ranges from about $5-$10 depending on shipping method (USPS Priority to NJ was $5.50 with a few other things).

Description:
Castle Long Reserve by Five Pawns
60ml Glass Bottle

What's in this bottle continues to be special. It's been coined, "the liquid of the year" after each limited-production release and we only make it once a year. Castle Long Reserve has been aged and steeped in a treated oak barrel for perfect and robust flavor.

You'll taste toasted coconut, roasted almond, brown sugar, two different vanillas (Madagascar vanilla bean and French-vanilla), Kentucky bourbon and oak.

Ummm....not to TC but why is this a good deal? I've been buying my eliquid from Slim's for a few years now. The premium 60 ml glass bottle of juice---any nicotine strength up to a max of 24---is $14. The Cloud Vape juice is about the same I believe & ditto for signature blends. Not much higher than premium. They have sales a lot.

No I'm not affiliated with Slim's E-Juice in any way & have never even been to their B&M store, just mail order from another state. Excellent customer service, too.

I'm pretty much expecting this thread to get a whole lot of thumbs down and I'm sure the majority either haven't tried Five Pawns, just simply don't like them, or find them to be a waste of money (which I actually partially agree on). Again, I know you can get other high quality juices for much cheaper from a whole lot of places. But then again Five Pawns does tend to put much more attention to detail than other companies though. In fact, ask your local B&M and I'm sure they'll say the same. Again, doesn't mean that they're not freaking expensive AF. The CL Reserve is a very limited produced juice they only make once a year and it is very distinct from its Castle Long counterpart.

I'm just pointing out that $42.50 for 60ml is a really good price for this very particular juice that they only release once a year. I happened to need to buy my stepfather a starter kit for Father's Day and this easily brought my order to $75 so it definitely worked out for me. I get to vape on my guilty pleasure juice for much cheaper than I normally would, this year.

This deal is basically really only good for those people who actually look forward to Castle Long Reserve and are willing to pay the extra money for it. Being that this is SD, I know even posting this it's counter intuitive, perhaps even pointless. But whatever, I posted this anyway in case there's a fellow CLR fan who sees this and gets a nice deal out of it. Smilie

Because this is aged in an oak barrel. Hints of bourbon are what I remember from the last time I've tried it.

Five Pawns has a hype crowd that don't mind paying ~$1 per ml. They have old style pricing for decent liquid.

In the day that real premiums are 20-25 per a 60ml this is ridiculous. Unless you want something that is aged in oak I guess. .

Just for a little perspective... You can (easily) buy a liter of 100mg base for like $50, and a gallon of VG costs under $30 on amazon... Half a bottle of nicotine will mix down to 6mg with just about two gallons of vg/pg. So $25 in nicotine, and $60 in VG/PG will net you about 8000ml of 6mg juice. Add in flavors, and you're looking at maybe $50/gallon. If you're buying this deal, it costs about $2631 per gallon. Think about that the next time you fill up with gas Smilie

I don't mix my own, but I do buy VG and high nic juices, which I cut down. I'm not looking to reinvent the wheel. If you buy in 24mg 30ml bottles, and have an empty 120ml bottle hanging around... Dump the 30ml into the 120, fill the rest with VG and you're down to 6mg. The flavors aren't as intense, but I like that, and I save a ton of money.
