How is Tobacco E-Juice Made?
The process for making naturally extracted tobacco e-liquid is a little more complicated than for most ordinary vapor liquid. Instead of mixing the flavorings and nicotine in with propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG) and then bottling it up to ship out, the best quality tobacco e-liquids “steep” tobacco leaves in the same base ingredients (PG and VG) to draw out the flavor. This process is called “maceration.”
Not all NET e-liquids are the same, though: some mixers use heat-assisted extraction, whereas others use cold maceration. Heat-assisted extractions can be completed much more quickly, but the resulting e-juice loses some of the depth and subtlety in the process.
Cold maceration takes a lot longer – Black Note allows our mixes to macerate for between six and eight weeks before the extraction is ready – but the flavor you get out of the vape juice at the end of the process is much better. The finer details of the multi-tonal flavor of tobacco are preserved in cold maceration: producing nuanced extracts and the best tobacco flavored e-liquid you’ll find on the market.
What is Naturally Extracted Tobacco E-Liquid?
Naturally extracted tobacco e-liquid (NET) is different from most tobacco e-liquid you’ll find on the market. Other tobacco flavored juices are based on combinations of natural and artificial flavors, aiming to replicate the taste of genuine tobacco with the use of ingredients like tobacco absolute. This makes e-juice that may capture some aspects of the complex, multi-tonal taste of tobacco, but most liquids that use this approach fall short of the mark.
NET ejuice is different: the flavor for the vape juice is extracted directly from real tobacco leaves, leading to a complex, nuanced taste that comes closer than most e-liquid can to the genuine flavor of tobacco.
The resulting eliquid tastes like a fresh scoop of high-quality tobacco. It can’t replicate the multitude of chemicals that (only) come from combustion, but the juice cleanly captures the character of tobaccos in a way you’ve never tasted them before.
Why Choose Black Note?
With so many e-juice manufacturers on the market, choosing just one to buy your tobacco eliquid from isn’t easy. But Black Note goes the extra mile for its customers. Not only do we start with the very finest tobaccos from around the world and only use leaves hand-selected for quality in our macerations, every single bottle is crafted with patience, allowing up to two months for our cold maceration process to fully develop the flavors.
We also take special care to ensure our tobacco e-juice is free from chemicals like diacetyl, acetyl propionyl, acrolein, acetoin, acetone ethylene glycol and diethylene glycol, and we provide a lab report showing the results of independent lab testing to prove it. We also don’t use any artificial colors, sweeteners, dyes or other additives in our naturally extracted tobacco e-juices.
This all comes together to produce some of the best tobacco e-liquid on the market. We offer the beautiful, complex flavors you can only get from naturally extracted tobacco vape juice made through cold maceration, but our e-liquid is also free from the sweeteners that gunk up your coils and harmful ingredients like diacetyl that are found in many eliquids.
With Black Note, you get the most authentic-tasting tobacco vape juice on the market and nothing else.
What Makes the Best Tobacco E-Juice?
What makes the best tobacco e-liquid partially comes down to personal preference, but there are two main types to choose from: some add things like caramel, sweeteners and other artificial flavors to the ejuice to mask the authentic taste, whereas others focus on replicating the real taste as closely as possible. Some vapers prefer the first type of tobacco vape liquid, but for smokers just switching to vaping and vapers who love the taste of high-end tobacco, natural flavors make the best tobacco flavored e-juice.
If you’re looking for an ejuice with a natural taste, NET e-liquid is undoubtedly the best approach. Not only does it lead to a more complex vape juice, it also allows the tobacco vaping liquid to capture the unique characteristics of the specific variety of tobacco, from the earthy and complex blends like Burley and Basma through to the sweeter, mellower blends like Virginia and Cavendish. For a top quality e-liquid, you really can’t beat it.

Why Black Note
Exceptional tobacco taste ranks as one of the main reasons to go with Black Note, but it’s certainly not the only one.
No Smell, Just Taste
Our liquids have no smell! That is because we capture tobacco flavors using a 100% natural cold extraction method, excluding any artificial/synthetic flavors that typically produce sharp smell at room temperature.
Our tobacco flavors are naturally extracted from real tobacco leaves.
Our lengthy cold maceration process is the best method of extracting delicate tobacco essences.
Contains Nothing You Can't Pronounce
Our liquids do not contain diacetyl, acetyl propionyl, ethylene glycol, diethylene glycol, acrolein or acetoin.
We specifically crafted a tobacco-only lineup to appeal to adult smokers and vapers - no one else.
No Characterizing Flavor
We intentionally stayed away from flavors considered appealing to minors.
No Artificial Anything
Our liquids do not contain any artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners or chemical additives.
Minimal ``Gunk Factor``
Our liquids are “coil friendly” meaning they don’t degrade replaceable coils as quickly as synthetic liquids.
OUR NINE STEP PROCESS
Fast and Easy Creation Process, NOT! Black Note tobacco vaping liquids aren’t made in a day – or even a year. Each batch of naturally extracted tobacco e-liquid undergoes a nine-step creation process that takes two to three years to complete.
Selecting the tobacco variety
Since it all begins with the seed, Black Note selects only non-GMO tobacco seeds, then takes the time to breed and cross-breed tobacco seeds a year before we even grow the crop to ensure only the healthiest cross-bred tobacco varieties are produced.
Growing the tobacco
True quality not only requires the very best seed selection, but also fertile soil, precise growing conditions, and plenty of attention.
Curing the leaf
Once matured, the leaves are carefully harvested and then gradually cured and dried in specially constructed barns.
Depending on the tobacco variety and characteristic, leaves are further matured and dried using sun-curing, air-curing, flue-curing, or fire-curing. The leaves are constantly supervised to guarantee quality and to ensure that we never hit a sour note in our tobacco flavors.
MOISTENING, STRIPPING & SORTING
Once the leaves have been fully cured, they must be moistened. Cured leaves are fragile and delicate, so they must be conditioned in moistening chambers to protect against breakage during handling. Once moistened, the leaves are stripped and sorted into grades based on quality, color and size. We only select the top 50% of all leaves for the next step in our process.
CONDITIONING & AGING
Next, we condition and age our leaves to enhance their flavor. This involves completely drying the leaves by air once more, and then adding a uniform amount of moisture. Once we’ve achieved the optimal moisture level, the tobacco is aged for an extended period, which allows it to develop a full range of flavor and aroma notes.
A single instrument played solo can be quite beautiful, but only by combining many different instruments can true musical splendor be appreciated. We believe that tobacco is no different. We carefully select leaves from different growing areas as well as climate zones and stalk positions. These are mixed to create unique blends, each carrying its own flavor notes and personality. And if you are curious as to how we prepare each blend, well, that is a family secret matured with generations of experience.
Before we can create the liquid harmony that is Black Note, we must extract the essence of each blend. We accomplish this through a natural tobacco maceration process. It begins with six to eight weeks of steeping to create the most delicate tobacco flavor, resulting in a softer, more nuanced extract that more closely preserves the signature flavor notes of each of our blends. Cold extraction protects against bitterness and harshness, and delivers a smooth vape with no harsh throat hit. Once the extraction process is complete, all that’s left is the pure flavor of unadulterated, top-quality tobacco.
Once we’ve extracted the delicate essence of each blend, we micro-filter it to remove any and all impurities, leaving behind the purest liquid on the market that’s free of contaminants and debris. Our state-of-the-art laboratory, where the maceration, extraction, micro-filtration, mixing and quality control is done, is supervised by in-house expert chemists to ensure the highest quality and purity standards. We believe in delivering the finest e-juice flavors available, with no artificial flavors, colors, , sweeteners, dyes or chemical additives.
BOTTLING & PACKAGING
At Black Note, we believe that good things come to those who are patient. That is why we run our machines slower, never sacrificing quality for quantity. We also believe in protecting the quality of the finished product once it leaves our hands – our exceptional packaging is the perfect complement to the flavor notes contained within each bottle. We use pure glass bottles to ensure no off-notes are imparted to the liquid, and then we encase each bottle in a secondary package to protect against light exposure and physical damage. Our entire bottling and packaging is completed in the United States.
What Would Happen if No One Smoked? If no one smoked, the Black Note dream would have indeed come true. Check out the video of what our dream would mean for the tobacco industry – and the world.
Just like a Marlboro
I have quit smoking for about 3 months and I smoked for 39 years. and the Marlboro man was my best friend. I have tried a lot of liquid and still wanted a cigarette,till I tried black note Quartet. It was strong at first, I even feel like a high,like I use to when I didn't have a cigarette for a long time if I was in hospital. I find what I been looking for 3 months, it is the real tobacco liquid. if you like a strong cigarettes,then you will like Quartet. It is worth every penny.
Light & Lovely
4 years ago I quit smoking with a e-cig company I found online. I liked their "light" tobacco e-juice and never searched for anything else. All was well till they recently shut down without warning. My search was on to find a comparable e-juice. I was in a bit of a panic when everything I tried was harsh or had a horrible chemical aftertaste. I figured I would never find anything with a light taste that was enjoyable. Luckily, someone recommended Black Note. I went with Prelude because of what I read about it. I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. Well, it was more than comparable to my discontinued e-juice, it was by far a better vape. What a lovely light tobacco taste! So glad to have found you Black Note, this new happy customer will be ordering more Prelude!
I am by no means an expert on vaping but this I will say. This company is health conscious with quality perfectionism that is unsurpassed by its competitors. If you are a smoker trying to switch don’t hesitate to purchase the notebook. If you are a vapor of any type of juice and worry about what your vaping then the same advice applies. If you compare BN to other juice in quality and flavor then everyone else is a high school marching band and BN is the NY Philharmonic Orchestra. You will not regret buying the ticket regardless the price. Thank you Black Note for taking the time to provide your customers with best quality product on the market. 5 STAR all the way.
Best I’ve ever had
Received my purchase on the 3rd day. Was so happy. Quick delivery. I can’t say which one I like the most lol. Maybe the Latakia. I’ve been smoking for 30 plus years and have been wanting to quit. Every liquid I would try just wouldn’t give me that tobacco taste I wanted and needed. Tasted gross lol Thank you so very much for a great product and the end of my searching. Will be a returning customer here!!!
This is the best tobacco flavor out there hands down. I've tried others and as a former smoker this is the only one that has actually tasted like a cigarette without all the nasty chemicals. My only concern is I wish there was an option for a larger bottle. I'm having to order a bottle a week almost. I'm so glad I tried black note!!!
The Very Best
I have been vaping for 5 years and have tried dozens of tobacco flavors and nothing tasted like real tobacco. Then I tried Black Note!!! This taste like a real cigarette! Prelude is my everyday, all time vape from now on. The search is over! Thanks, Black Note! Can't get stars to work but this is a definite 5!
Quality You Can Trust
As a self described aficionado of many consumables I began a hunt for the highest quality vaping liquid I could find. This is it. I’ve been wanting to quit smoking for awhile now, I need a liquid, or juice as the industry calls, that most closely resembles the flavor of tobacco. This is it. Sonata was my first, and only so far, but I yearn to try all Black Note has to offer. Thank you from all of us you help quit combustibles!
Black Note was born to create a line of naturally extracted tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like tobacco, and the company history stretches back for six generations of tobacconist. Our journey to create the most authentic-tasting tobacco e-liquid on earth started when we realized none of the “tobacco” e-liquids on the market actually tasted like tobacco.
