Interesting and unique flavor

This has a more robust taste to it than prelude (the only other one i've tried so far) but also has some sweetness to it, but it's not necessarily defined by it. Others have said this is smooth and light, i'm inclined to agree. The flavorings are subtle and at my settings produce a warm hit. I only have the 3% blend so the throat hit isn't nearly like real tobacco but the flavor is reminiscent of sweet cigarillos the like of the AL-Capone cigarillos. It might be my set-up, but i rate this 4 stars because of it's subtly; you have to focus on the flavor to detect it rather than it being up front and powerful That might be what make others rate it 5 stars though.

WOW, Found my most prized vape!

Been vaping, stopped smoking finally after 30 years. Found Black Note after exhausting searches on the net for a great tobacco like vape that lived up to its name. Forte is now my perfect 'go-to' e-liquid. I am one happy 'vapor'.

Very happy

Fantastic stuff as expected. The delivery time absolutely blew me away...5 days from order to delivery in New Zealand. Never had that before and I order a lot from overseas. Very impressed with the product and the service !!!

Smooth and Tasty

This e-liquid is so smooth. It is a light but flavorful vape, and I recommend it to people who want good flavor without a harsh or overpowering taste.

There Can Be Only One!

After extensive research I decided to try vaping and quit smoking. Every inquiry for a "real tasting" e-juice resulted in "...Blacknote products stand alone, nothing else comes close." So I ordered a mod and an Asripre Nautilus, and some Blacknote Sonata. Your dedication to customer service is excellent. My first order got here quickly, California to Northern Michigan in 2 days... WOW! Set my system up, filled the tank and I haven't had a cigarette, not even a puff, since April 14, 2017. To say that I'm pleased with your company and your products is a gross understatement.
My impression of the two Liquids that I've tried so far:
Sonata - A great first choice to "test the water". Subtle, light, a hint of sweetness, but not quite robust enough for a 40 year "Hump" smoker. I knew I was on the right track, so I opted for Forte on my next order.
Forte - Bingo! A somewhat "dryer", more robust tobacco flavor. Just what I had hoped for.
I strongly recommend your product to everybody that asks me about real tobacco flavored E-juice with missionary zeal, well done Blacknote, well done indeed.

This is an excellent flavor. It reminds me of when I used to smoke with a similar flavor. Great effort.

New number one for me

I was bummed when Black Note discontinued my favorite, Cadenza, so it was back to the drawing board. I've tried all Black Note creations, and have now settled on Forte as my all-day vape. I find it to be the most flavorful of all current Black Note offerings, full-bodied and deep. Great by itself, but I generally mix in about 20% Quartet, which is in a class by itself. As a former pipe smoker, partial to English blends, the Latakia of Quartet I associate with good cognac and single-malt scotches. It can be a bit overwhelming by itself during the day, though. Forte is fine by itself, but adding a touch of Quartet is the finishing touch. Should I call it Fortet? Or Quarte? I just call it good. By the way, I recently tried some other NETs from different makers to compare them side-by-side with Black Note, hoping to save a few bucks. They were not in the same league. You get what you pay for, I guess. If you enjoy a rich, full tobacco flavor, try Forte. If something milder fits your palate, some of the other Black Note flavors might be more to your liking.

Fantastic flavor!

This e-liquid tastes great on it's own, much better than any other tobacco e-liquid I've tried. On it's own it's just a bit too strong for me so I tried mixing it with caRnY4 from G2 Vapor and it's an amazing combo, 2 parts black note, 1 part caRnY4. Would highly recommend!

My Go To Liquid

I have to admit, when it was available Adagio was my favorite. sadly it is gone. This is now my daily choice. Each month I like it more, and miss Adagio less. I sometimes add add a bit of Quartet for oomph. All in all, if Black Note did not exist I just wouldn't vape. Wonderful product, great service.

I quit smoking and started vaping 5 years ago. I was a hardcore smoker. I smoked two packs of cigarettes a day. I loved smoking and never wanted to stop. My doctor told me if I didn't quit, I would soon be walking around with an oxygen tank. Had it not been for e-cigarettes and tobacco flavored e-liquid, I never would have stopped. Black note has been the company with the most "authentic" tasting tobacco e-liquid I have ever used and I think I must have tried them all. At first, I would order the notebook because I didn't know which one to try. After testing the four e-liquids, I decided that I liked Forte the best. All the e-juices are made of high quality. Their shipping is extremely fast and free. Mine usually takes only three days to get here. And the packaging is totally cute. It would be fantastic if Black note could reduce their prices slightly, but like the old saying goes, "you get what you pay for" and that is so true. I would definitely try Black note if you are looking for high quality tobacco flavored e-liquid. So glad I found your website!!

My all day!

I have been torn between Prelude and Legato as my all day vape so I take both but hit Legato most. The fresh taste on a temperature controlled mod with organic cotton really makes this liquid shine. I used to smoke and have gone through gallons of juice trying to find that fresh tobacco taste. This does it for me. Just wish I had found it 4 years ago.

Finally somebody got it right..... My former juice is no longer for sale so I've been searching and searching for anything even halfway close and Forte is totally it. An all day vape smooth yet strong tasty and not overbearing. It's perfect absolutely perfect and I'm very picky. I found my first juice by accident and vaped it for 4years before I got cut off Forte is a perfect match. Thank you blacknote for saving me from returning to cigarettes, I'd be lost without you

Feels close to real tobacco.

One of the nicest flavors in the Black Note portfolio. Not too strong, not too sweet, so it is a very good balance. I find Black Note e-liquids better then their chemical counterparts. The hit on the throat is nicer and so is the overall feeling after vaping, as in the chemical e-liquids many times leave a weird feeling
in my lungs after long vaping sessions. They also more effective in keeping me away from cigarettes, as their taste resembles cigarettes more closely ( this is still not the same as cigarette smoke, as there is no burning process, but I find the taste quite similar to cigars).
In my opinion, in order to avoid all the chemicals found in the standard e-liquids, the exposure to the small extra toxicity levels due to the pure tobacco extraction process is definitely worth it. I would recommend Black note to everyone trying to quit smoking.

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.
