Disclaimer: Five Pawns Queenside is my favorite ADV. This is a flavor I never get tired of. Typically, I order directly from Five Pawns. However, when I saw CV carried my beloved Queenside, I decided to order from here.
I placed my order on Nov. 6th, 2015, it arrived quickly, but it did take me about a week to 10 days to get around to cracking the bottle open. When I did vape it, I thought something was "off." The flavor wasn't bad, but it didn't taste exactly right either.
Then I checked the bottle: the date on the bottle was 03/01/15. I received a bottle of Queenside that was eight (8) months old. No wonder it didn't taste right.
When I order directly from Five Pawns, the date on the bottle is never more than one month old. Also, a bottle of Queenside never lasts more than a week with me, so I don't know how long a bottle can sit before the flavor begins to degrade, but I'm thinking after eight (8) months there will definitely be some flavor degradation.
Don't get me wrong: I LOVE Craft Vapery. CV has a wonderful selection of all things vaping, great prices, and awesome customer service. However, I will never order Five Pawns from here again--I'll stick with ordering directly.
