Description: Cavendish is a type of tobacco resulting from a specific process, usually using Virginia tobacco. Dark, ripe Virginia tobacco leaves are steam-treated and oak-barrel cured, producing a tobacco with a brilliant intensity and rich taste.

History: Several different stories surround the origin of Cavendish, but all of them involve tobacco that was being transported on the ship of Sir Thomas Cavendish in 1585.

One tale says Cavendish infused his personal supply of tobacco with dark rum to prevent it from drying out and getting moldy. He then rolled the wet leaves together, binding them tightly with sail canvas and twine. Much to his surprise, the flavor improved.

The tobacco smoked sweeter, was mellower and had an aromatic fragrance. The process of using double fermentation to create Cavendish tobacco was born.

Another tale says Cavendish was created by accident, when several massive barrels of fire-cured Virginia tobacco got wet while on the ship of Lord Cavendish. When the tobacco shipment arrived after spending weeks in the hot summer weather, the tobacco was black. But it had an absolutely enticing aroma.

Although he was reimbursed for the damage by the insurance company, Lord Cavendish was also able to sell the black tobacco because of its captivating aroma. The tobacco had turned black and highly aromatic due to over-fermentation, which occurred when the water began decomposing the tobacco’s natural sugar without allowing mold to take over. The process has since been reproduced on all types of tobacco to create Cavendish tobacco.

Note: The process only works with fresh water; tobacco dampened by salt water is a total loss.

    WOW !!! WOW !!! WOW!!! WOW !!!

    For many of us vaping became a way to quit smoking, but for me it was so much more. I am disabled and home all day and vaping was a great way to stay busy and enjoy my day. I have been vaping for about two years and my favorite e-juices are the tobacco flavors One day while messing around on the computer I came across a new e-juice company, The interesting thing was it was an e-juice company that sold only tobacco juices. Well I decided to try one. It was called Sonata and right from the first drag I new it was something very special. The inhale was crisp and slightly nutty with a great throat hit to follow. On the exhale it was warm and tasty and left you wanting more. By the time I called it a day I had gone through over half of the 30mg bottle. When I find something I really enjoy I like to share with others. This juice really knocked my socks off. I must tell you in two years I had never come across a juice that I like this much. I have tried many other N.E.T. flavors (naturally extracted tobaccos) and for the most part they were harsh and hard to vape, but not this juice. When I first came across it, it seemed a little on the pricey side at $33.00 and I had to think about. I hate to admit it but in the past juices with fancy adds, great labels and wonderful descriptions usually fell short, but I took a chance, so if you are a vaper who enjoys a smooth, tasty tobacco flavor or even if you don’t you must try Sonata by Blacknote. The only question left is what flavor I will try next and remember “its not bragging if its true.”

    Really nice stuff. Beautiful packaging. Ordered on Monday at 5PM – Delivered to my house on the East Coast by noon on Wednesday! Its immediately apparent that this is a high quality product. Wonderful natural flavor, and clean vapor. I was looking for a “natural” tasting juice that was free of chemicals (i.e. artificial flavorings) and childish gimmicks. I was so excited a see a new product that claimed these qualities, and I can confirm they hit the mark. I would love to see a PG free offering in the future.

    Great E liquid

    I ordered from CT on a Wednesday, and had this juice on Friday!!!!! Outstanding presentation. Comes in a nice box, the 30 ml bottle also comes in a nice tube to keep light out of the bottle. They also gave me a free sample of another flavor from their lineup!!!!!!! The juice itself to me feels and taste like my favorite cigar from rocky patel. RIch flavor of tobacco, yet with a natural sweetness. However this juice is so so smooth. It is hands down the best tobacco juice I have ever vaped in my 3+ years of vaping. Try their juices, you will certainly not be disappointed. For all you drippers and rebuilders like me, another 3-4 weeks and they will offer 0.03 mg. Whats not to love?

    Itza Spicy Meata Balla!!!

    The Sonata starts with a mellow sweetness, with a smooth and light tobacco flavor, that quickly segues into in a major throat hit. The Spice definitely takes center stage here. It hits me hard with a crescendo, then fades into a tingle, like a fine Kentucky Bourbon. If I chain vape, I even get that feeling of lingering warmth in the back of my throat. While not my favorite in terms of flavor (so far it’s the Adagio), this is nonetheless another virtuoso performance in the Black Note lineup.

    Sonata 12mg / Nautilus Mini New BVC Coil

    An American-style cigarette blend that has a full-bodied throat hit. (This one took me a few minutes to figure out the complexity of this juice.*) I get the tobacco with nuances of smoked walnuts, toasted brown rice, and savory oolong-tea notes on the exhale. This would be ideal for the Asian Palate, If you enjoyed the 555 tobacco before, this one will grab you.

    Awesome stuff

    So my favorite juice which i will not name, was discontinued. Im not one to branch out but I was forced to, let me tell you I was severely disappointed in what was out there. I wasted 100s of dollars only to be let down time and again and I was on the verge of quitting. Then i found a review of black note e juices and ordered a bottle of sonata. Shipping was great, 2 days from ordering and my box arrived. Ive only been vaping on it for about an hour now and I must confess, this is the best stuff I’ve ever had. Tastes just like tobacco, with some other nuances mixed in I cant quite pick out. A little spicy, some very mild sweetness, reminds me of a fine mild cigar which is what i like. They sent a sample of the Forte which is a little sweeter with a nutty kind of flavor thats also very good. I would recommend this juice to anyone that likes tobacco flavors, you won’t be let down.

    Cavendish Goes Sophisticated

    Much different flavor profile than other Cavendish liquids I’ve tried. This is more refined and sophisticated. There is some slight sweetness, but I also get popcorn or fresh, dry wood on the nasal exhale. Tried on a Derringer recently and it is just excellent. Run part of the exhale through your nose to really pick up all the flavor elements.

    This one really reminded me of an American cigarette, but better because it had a spicy sweet undertone. I could see this being very popular with a person who is trying to find the cigarette substitute. So far, it’s my favorite but I haven’t tried the prelude yet. Like all the other flavor you can feel and taste the quality with this gape. Vaping a .5 on an Atlantis 2 at 30 watts. Enjoy, I can’t imagine anybody not loving this one!

    The King of pipe tobaccos. very true to taste and when mixed with Forte you’ve got captn black, sir walter raleigh, black & mild or whatever other type of smooth aromatic pipe blend you can think of.

    At last I got the European, i.e natural and fresh tobacco taste. If only US ingredients could be as good as that one. I had a bad experience vaping liquids tasting like a bitter medication or a metal until I found Black Note. It feels like I switched from a junk food to a well cooked one. Sonata is made of a true robust tobacco for those who smoked regular cigarettes before. Keep working on making current and new N.E.T. liquids. Great job Black Note !!!
