The Five Pawns brand has enjoyed the undisputed title of one of the best brands in the world producing premium e-liquids. Despite the worldwide vaping market almost daily brings out new and aggressive brands that try to impose themselves within this now crowded scenario, the Five Pawns star continues to shine in the sign of absolute excellence for creativity and above all for the absolute quality of its products. The Castle Long, the Gambit and the Grandmaster are considered absolutely cult e-liquids among the vapers of the whole world, and they will still be for a long time, so when we talk about Five Pawns, we are are sure to be in front of a brand that, after all, it can be considered part of a restricted elite, the world aristocracy of e-liquids.
Our team today decided to take care of Simmetry Six, one of the lesser known products of the Californian manufacturer.

The recent new European regulations regulating the electronic cigarette industry (TPD) also in the packaging of the products have led Five Pawns to set aside, at least for the European market, the elegant glass bottles in favor of 10 ml PET bottles housed inside a cylindrical carton box. The precious graphics that have always distinguished the brand remain unchanged.
Five Pawns describes Simmetry Six as follows:
Sugared rhubarb and strawberries come together to be the shining stars in this complex and well balanced blend.
On the nose a creamy and vanilla bed with a slight hint of cereals, welcomes an intense fragrance of strawberries, made pungent by an alcoholic background that hovers threateningly over the entire composition of the liquid; a sword of Damocles waiting for the decisive proof of vaping … A slight alcoholic background that risks compromising an olfactory perceived otherwise very tasty and refined, able to transfer a general feeling of high quality.
At the vaping the liquid immediately appears endowed with a rather complex aromatic structure. We are faced with a mix of delicately hinted and almost nuanced flavors that, except for a recognizable and pleasant strawberry, struggle to emerge clearly; even the most careful vaper will be in difficulty in identifying the single ingredients of Simmetry Six.
Before devoting ourselves to the aromatic understanding of the blend, let’s take a moment to note that even with this creation (as always when we talk about Five Pawns) the feeling of quality that shines through every puff is very high. The mixture is noble and graceful and it is clear that it is destined for a relaxed tasting vaping. In this sense we explain the choice of the Doggystyle 2k16 set for a range of vaping between 15 and 25 watts.
After some starting puffs, we are ready for in-depth analysis of the liquid. In inhalation, a pleasantly bitterish flavor anticipates the aphrodisiac sweetness of the strawberry and its unmistakable taste. This phase of the puff is rather dry but also very aromatic; the combination between the bitter notes (of rhubarb) and the softness of the strawberry is really well thought out and, thanks to an almost whispered dosage, an elegant delicacy is created. The presence of the rhubarb aroma (an ingredient rarely used in vaping), reveals itself in reality only thanks to the words of the manufacturer, otherwise it would have been difficult to recognize it within the structure of the mix.
In the heart of puff, Symmetry Six acquires greater roundness, new aromatic nuances emerge, very well in harmony with the rhubarb-strawberry combination of top notes. Oats and vague graham notes together with light vanilla hints represent the soft and creamy bed on which the “bittersweet” body of the bouquet rests.
The vape is now gentler, also assisted by a minimum sweetening dose that stamps the final phase of the puff together with the vanilla finish. The aromatic persistence highlights with more incisiveness the delicate and refined veil of vanilla enriched by a slight hint of strawberry fragrance that re-emerges after inspiration. The sensation on the palate at the end of the vaping is pleasantly blurred, although perhaps the presence of a slightly less dry steam along with a pinch of extra creaminess would have elevated it to absolute excellence.
If you are looking for a slow and reflective creamy tasting e-liquid, Symmentry Six can be for you, as long as you keep it away from very airy feeding systems with particularly bold and pushed builds.
Pro: Bouquet refined and refined according to the style and quality typical of the Californian brand.
Cons: Difficult to clearly identify the rhubarb aroma and the creaminess is lower than expected.
