Taken Three: A Different Direction For Five Pawns
Earlier this week, I dropped by the Five Pawns Tasting Bar to chat with company founder & president Rodney Jerabek about the new Taken Three brand. In a nutshell, Taken Three costs less and has higher VG content than Five Pawns’ Insignia Series e-liquids. In the video above, Jerabek spoke about the inspiration behind Taken Three and described the brand’s flavors in detail. He also spoke about what Five Pawns has been up to lately and teased what’s next for the company.
Everyday Flavors, Lower Prices
As I mentioned in the intro, Jerabek described in detail the three Taken Three flavors in the video above. Two of the flavors have some fun stories behind them. If you want a quick summary, here are the official descriptions.
- Brevity: Banana Boston cream pie
- Isolani: Glazed lemon zest sugar cookie
- Kibitzer: Grilled pineapple upside-down cake
I’ve vaped a bit of all three flavors and they’re pretty what Jerabek described. I found all three to be enjoyable, but certainly not as complex as a Five Pawns Insignia Series e-liquid. That said, I haven’t vaped enough Taken Three to form a meaningful opinion. Stay tuned to Vaping360 for the full review of Five Pawns Taken Three.
China and Beyond
At the time of filming, Jerabek was fresh off a trip from Shenzhen, China. He told me a little about the journey and how the Five Pawns brand does in that country. He also teased that his next project is something in the Five Pawns brand and not the Taken Three line. As a longtime fan of Five Pawns e-liquid, I can’t wait to see what he does next.
For now, I’d love to get your opinions on Taken Three. Any of you vape these flavors yet? If so, what do you think? If not, which Taken Three flavor are you most interested in? Share your feelings (like a Care Bear) in the comments section.
