My second review for Italians (and also for international tobacco lovers)

Il consiglio che do agli appassionati di tabacco è di provare Forte per il suo sapore deciso e aromatico. Chi ha fumato il sigaro per anni saprà apprezzare le note torbate di sottofondo (Forte è perfetto in accompagnamento al whiskey o dopo il caffè). Ora, come nell'impostazione data al Prelude, do la mia personale visione sull'abbinamento alla sigaretta elettronica: il valore di una buona sigaretta elettronica (e l'efficacia nell'essere un'alternativa alle sigaretta) è data da due componenti: il liquido utilizzato e il tank per la vaporizzazione. Consiglio di assaporare il Prelude utilizzando un Nautilus X della casa Aspire con resistenze da 1.8 ohm. Per chi fuma di guancia o vuole provare un leggero tiro di polmone è un prodotto che esalta le qualità del tabacco.
For non italians: Forte is more than a tobacco liquid, it is a marvellous experience where passion and flavours are mixed with perfect balance. Take your time, try Forte at home with a whiskey and a good book; it will make your day.

Straight up Burley

Straightforward burley flavors: wheat, parchment, tiny hint of cocoa. I detect little if any Virginias

Best Tobacco flavor I've tried

For the last few years I've vaped nothing but tobacco flavors. Most of the ones I've tried were pretty bad and nothing like a cigarette. Forte from Black Note is hands down the best, most authentic taste I've found yet. I just ordered a sampler pack from Black note to try to other ones.

Very Impressed

This is one of 4 I purchased in a set and am definitely putting this one top of the list.
I have tried many liquids from various places and to date this one is the best. Super smooth with great after taste.
Would I recommend? Absolutely!
Also I am really impressed at how quick I received my purchase. Coming from overseas to Australia you guys will now be the only supplier I purchase from.
Thank you :-)

Nice smoky texture

Forte is defined to me at least, as one of the more 'smokey' flavors offered. A step below legato, but not nearly as heavy - yet tasted great just like they all do. My favorite is Sonata, which I'm currently waiting on.
But with each flavor, you get to find the one you really want. In fact, try out the box kits to find your fav!

Top liquid

As ever Forte is one of the best there is, I get this shipped at a lot of expense to Ireland as no other liquid is as good and I only vape tobacco liquid.

Light flavor but still pretty darn good

I wanted to try something different than the usual Quartet. While I think that Quartet has a richer flavor than Forte, I still think Forte is a quality product. While Quartet is like a full flavored cigarette, Forte is like a lighter cigarette. Will definitely buy this product again in the future.

Just try it

I love these flavors. I try to mix it up but Forte is one of favorites. If you're on the fence just try it and you be disappointed.

Smooth, sweet

Forte is the first black note product I've tried. It has a smooth consistency with a complex and sweet aftertaste. It reminds me of Al Capone cigarellos. The depth of flavor is great, but I found it to be a bit weak for my personal tastes. I would gladly pay a few extra dollars for a more concentrated extract.

I started vaping about 5 years after I quit smoking. I was so glad when I read a web review on Black Note. I've finally found the top shelf of e-juice. I don't like the fruity flavors, I like tobacco flavor, and so far the Legato and Forte are the closet I have found to real tobacco flavor.

I'm Sold.

Tried all varieties but Solo. I ordered the notebook and a 30ml of Quartet. Forte is likely my favorite, but all very good and distinct. Not one that I wouldn't order again. Smoked cigarettes for 15 years and have quit for about 5 years now. Vaping was a big reason why I was able to quit. Was always on the search for a good tobacco brand e-juice and here it is!! Ordering a 30ml of Forte now! Thanks Black Note.

This is the best vape juice I have ever had!! I was so frustrated with all the sweet , syrupy, "tobacco " flavors out there ! I am a long long long time smoker. I love to smoke but know I need to quit so I can watch my grandchild grow. Now that I have found Black Note products i am confident i will achieve my goal. I just ordered my second bottle of forte. The customer service and quick deliver is amazing !! I can't wait to try some other flavors in the future. Thank you Black Note for making a fantastic tasting vape juice for all of us smokers trying to quit !!

What is E-Juice?

E-juice, also known as e-liquid or vaping liquid, is the liquid that’s placed in the vaping device and subsequently atomized into vapor. When you go to buy e-juice, you’ll notice it contains a mix of several ingredients. These typically include vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), some type of flavoring, and nicotine.

VG and PG form the base of the e-liquid. VG is a component used in food and personal care products; its role in e-liquid is to create a thick, dense vapor. PG is another popular solvent used in a variety of everyday items. It carries the e-liquid flavor, provides the “throat hit,” and enhances the vaping liquid’s ability to soak into wicks or cartomizer materials.

Nicotine is an optional ingredient, often available in different levels. E-juice also contains some type of flavoring.

Black Note leads the pack of tobacco vaping liquid by using only natural flavoring – extract from real tobacco leaves to produce real tobacco taste. When you go to buy e-juice from other companies, you may find any number of chemicals used to create synthetic flavors that include fake strawberry, manufactured vanilla, and even man-made tobacco flavors.

If your aim when you buy e-liquid is to experience the subtle nuances, genuine flair and authentic taste of real tobacco, then you’ll be on the mark if you buy e-juice from the Black Note lineup.

Best E-Juice

When you’re going to buy e-liquid, it’s only natural you’ll want the best e-liquid. But what, exactly, does it “best e-juice” mean? We’ll tell you.

For starters, you’ll want an e-juice that doesn’t contain all kinds of strange chemicals and concoctions that you can’t even pronounce. True, even the best e-liquid will contain vegetable glycerin (VG) and proplene glycol (PG), which serve as the base of e-juice, but you don’t necessarily need a host of other chemical compounds.

The best e-juice will stick to natural ingredients, like real tobacco extract, rather than rely on synthetic flavorings, colorings and other additives. Diacetyl is one of those synthetic ingredients that has gotten a pretty bad rap, although its use is not all that uncommon for producing sweet e juice flavors.

Definitely read the ingredient list before you buy e-juice to ensure you recognize what’s on it. Better yet, see if the e-juice company offers a lab report to confirm what’s actually inside the e-liquid.

In addition to having as few chemical ingredients as possible, the best e-juice will have an amazing taste. For those who enjoy authenticity over imitation, the most amazing taste is the most natural taste, especially when it comes to tobacco. Since Black Note uses real extract from tobacco leaves, we not only avoid all those weird chemical flavorings, but we also produce the most authentic experience: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like tobacco.

Best E-Liquid on the Market

Anyone looking for the best e-liquid on the market need look no further than Black Note. Black Note tobacco vaping liquid ranks as the best e-juice across the board in every category, starting with the taste.

Black Note’s main claim to fame is producing a tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. That because we use real tobacco extract, not chemicals, to create the best e-juice tobacco flavor. Using extract from real tobacco leaves retains tobacco’s nuances and flavor notes, giving you the most authentic and multi-faceted tobacco experience.

In addition to being the best e-juice for tobacco taste, Black Note also has the best e-liquid manufacturing process. We spent years researching and testing various production methods, and finally landed on one that we believe is absolutely perfect.

It starts with growing carefully selected tobacco seeds, followed by an equally precise of steps that include an extensive natural extraction process. Even our bottling and packaging is done with the utmost care, using recycled and recyclable packaging materials to ensure our products are as earth-friendly as they are vapor-friendly.

One more category where Black Note ranks as the best e-liquid is with the value. Every order comes with free domestic shipping, one-to-three day domestic shipping guarantee, and a 90-day, money-back satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not happy for any reason, or don’t agree we’re the best e-juice on the market, send it back on us and we’ll refund your money.

Vape Juice Ingredients

Vape juice ingredients can be pretty straightforward – or not. At the very least, most vape juice contains propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and some type of flavoring. Nicotine has largely become an optional ingredient that can be included at varying levels or left out altogether.

Vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) are usually the two main ingredients that make up the base of most vape juice.

VG is a plant-based substance with the ability to produce a dense, thick vapor. PG is an additive found in many food items and certain medicines. It carries the flavoring, provides the “throat hit” and enhances the vape juice’s ability to soak into the wicking materials.

Nicotine levels can vary, as can ingredients that make up the flavorings. The components that make up vape juice flavoring are where ingredients can get rather complicated.

Vape juice that relies on artificial flavorings can contain any number of extraneous chemicals and other additives, whatever it takes to recreate the flavor the ecig juice is going for.

Black Note uses only natural flavorings: extract from real tobacco leaves. That keeps our ingredient list incredibly simple, backed by a lab report to prove it. You won’t find any strange chemical concoctions used to produce our tobacco flavor, just real tobacco extract that delivers a real tobacco experience.

What is the Best Flavor for Ecig Juice?

From strawberry shortcake to banana rum, ecig juice comes in tons of flavors. While folks can debate and discuss all the fruity, sweet or food-like flavors all day long, the best flavor for e-cig liquid is straight-up tobacco.

Why? Vaping was originally created as an alternative for traditional cigarettes, mainly for those who enjoy the taste of tobacco. And when you can find an e-cig liquid that is able to recreate tobacco’s full-bodied yet delicate flavor notes and nuances, but without the harmful chemicals found in cigarettes, then you’ve found the best ecig juice.

Recreating tobacco’s complex flavor isn’t easy, especially when it’s attempted with artificial ingredients. That’s why Black Note sticks to the real thing, extracting the essence of real tobacco leaves to flavor our vaping liquid. Not only does this avoid the harmful chemicals in cigarettes, but it also eliminates the flavoring chemicals found in many ecig juices. The end result is real tobacco taste, an authentic tobacco experience and the best flavor for ecig juice you can find.

Notice also we said the best e-cig flavor was straight-up tobacco, not plain old tobacco. Black Note’s real tobacco vaping liquid happens to come in a variety of different blends, from the light and airy to the peppery and robust. Not all tobacco is created equal, and different blends capture the specialized subtleties that make each tobacco unique.

Best Sweet Tobacco E-Juice

When it comes to sweet tobacco e-juice, your options can be broken down into two categories.

The first category contains tobacco e-juice that overlays the tobacco flavor with artificial chocolate, caramel, vanilla, fruity or other dessert-like flavorings. We wouldn’t classify any such flavors as the best tobacco e liquid, simply because they typically use chemicals and other artificial ingredients to create the tobacco taste, the sweet taste, or both.

The second category of sweet tobacco e-juice is where you’ll find the best tobacco e-liquid, sweet or otherwise. This category contains vaping liquid created using only natural flavorings, which is exactly where Black Note fits in. Instead of concocting flavors using synthetic ingredients, Black Note uses an extensive extraction process that slowly and deliberately extracts the tobacco essence from real tobacco leaves.

The result is the best tobacco e-juice: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. And if you’re going for the best sweet tobacco e liquid, we have a few tobacco blends that offer varying levels of sweetness.

Prelude is our sweetest tobacco e-liquid, containing golden Virginia tobacco. Made from fire-cured dark Virginia tobacco, Sonata is our Cavendish blend with a mildly sweet and nutty flavor. Solo is our menthol blend, giving you a semi-sweet minty taste created from natural menthol crystals extract from dried mint leaves.

For the best tobacco e-liquid that’s naturally sweet and remarkably delicious, Black Note is at your service.
