Grown in the sandy alluvial plains at the foot of the Italian Alps, this Virginia tobacco e-juice derives subtle flavors unique to the Verona soils. Once harvested, the tobacco leaves are flue-cured to release their natural sugars and resins, resulting in a light, bright taste and aroma. This flue-cured tobacco process is aimed at delivering a high-quality e-liquid that even a pipe-smoker would enjoy. Using this type of tobacco production, the flavors are designed to be subtle, but bright in flavor and not too complex. Try Black Note’s Prelude today!

I started with a notebook to get acquainted with Blacknote's products and liked Prelude the best. All of the flavors are quite good and I highly recommend a Notebook to all new customers. My overall experience with the company so far has been excellent. Their products are truly premium quality and worth the price. Shipping is very fast, packaging is top notch and I do enjoy the notes of humor throughout the process.

My ADV now that Encore is gone

My most favorite flavor is Encore, but since they've pulled that and I've run out of my backup bottles, I have turned to Prelude for my ADV. Vaping has changed my life in wonderful, fundamental ways and I really do give credit to Black note for this. 3 years ago I tried to quit smoking and change to Vaping and couldn't do it. Then I hadn't found Black note and I don't even know if they were around then. I searched everywhere for that tobacco taste that would allow me to stop craving the typical cigarette taste and feeling of the hit. After 2 months and hundreds of dollars in busted flavors, I gave up. A year ago I tried again and found a fruity flavor I liked (Betty by PinUp Vapes) and although the majority of the time I'd vape, I would still crave the taste and "feel" of a normal cigarette. Then I found Blacknote. I have been able to be cancer stick free now for 6 months. Coincidently 6 months ago was my 1st order at Blacknote. 2 months after that 1st order, we found out we were expecting. We have 2 kids already, but since our youngest was born we tried for a 3rd. We had gotten pregnant and lost each pregnancy right at 12 weeks. My Dr stressed that quitting smoking would greatly increase our chances of carrying to term. Well, this time when we found out, the minute I looked at the test result and seen a positive, I haven't had a cigarette since. Along with other treatments that we haven't tried before and quitting smoking, I truly believe that vaping, and especially Blacknote flavors have allowed us to get to 16 week right now. If it weren't for the awesome flavors here, where you can't get anywhere else, I would still be smoking cigarettes and vaping. But now I am able to give our baby the bet chance we can and it's 75% because of Blacknote. I can't thank them enough. I just wish big tobacco would stop buying off research of vaping because my Dr thinks vaping is WORSE than smoking. If it weren't for the fact that he is the bet high risk baby Dr within 100 miles of me, I would leave. But hopefully the truth about vaping and how it's a much healthier ALTERNATIVE to smoking keeps coming out so Dr's change their mind. Hell, 40 years ago Dr's thought cigarettes didn't cause cancer! Anyway, I can't say enough good things about this company and their flavors and I can't thank them enough for filling the biggest void in the vaping industry to have authentic tobacco flavors! ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

Prelude is my favorite my wife loves the Forte. I can sum up Prelude in several words here's a few. Awesome, The Best E-juice there is, when I vape Prelude it makes my tounge what to jump out of my mouth too Dance and Sing!!! I've vaped several juices and I mean several and Blacknote is hands down the Best E-Juice I've ever had. So anyone reading this should give Blacknote a try, tell your friends about it spread the Blacknote love everywhere because once you go Blacknote you'll never look back.

Best yet!

Ok, so I have tried three flavors, and like them all, but Prelude tops the list in my book. It is just a clear tobacco taste that I can smoke all the time, and satisfies my craving totally. I do notice that since using any of the Blacknote flavors, I do not have gunked up clearomizers anymore either, and they last longer, so for me, that makes up the difference in cost. Must be the way it is made, plus the elimination of all the additives in other brands. I will never go back. For a slight bit more money, I get great tobacco taste, no gunking, and truly enjoy vaping more now. Thanks Blacknote, for a great vaping experience. So glad I decided to try the flavors from you.

My third favorite non-menthol blend behind 1) Legato and 2) Sonata. A little sweeter than those other two, still quite good. I used to prefer Newports, this reminds more of a Marlboro flavor.

Prelude = Pure, Bright, Authentic Tobacco!

If you are/were a smoker at any point, you've got to try this. It is the perfect transition, or the perfect maintenance liquid to keep you from going back to smoking. I can't say enough about this flavor or about BlackNote's line up of flavors. I couldn't quit smoking for good until I found BN because everyone claims they have great tobacco but what they didn't realize is that I and so many others just needed something that really tasted like tobacco, but also performed well in our equipment. Really, truly, get a bottle of Prelude. Even if you don't smoke, I would imagine this being enjoyable for all. All hail, King Prelude!

Simply Fantastic

The flavor is outstanding and bright. I never realized the subtle flavor notes of Virginia Tobacco until I found Prelude. Well done, Black Note.

Honestly, I have tried many tobacco flavors and wasted so much money in the process for flavors that came out to be disgusting. I got the Prelude and I was a Marlboro Lights smoker and I will say WOW!. No other e-liquid will ever come close to the Prelude. (Haven't tried any other flavor yet from Black Note). This is as authentic as it gets. Doesn't give you the strong tobacco smell/flavor to get disgusted from, but you can definitely taste the tobacco (PERFECT BALANCE). This e-liquid does not make me cough like other e-liquids do (I'm new to the vaping world, a couple months or so).

Prelude is the reason I started vaping

When I tried to quit smoking, I did not like any of the eliquids available in the market until I found about Blacknote prelude. A great light tobacco taste.

Prelude 12mg

I'm a pack a day smoker. I got my order yesterday. I must say I'm impressed. Haven't smoked a cigarette all day. Not to mention I'm at work. That has never happened in the 15 years I've smoked.

First things first, I'm vaping with a kanger tech "cupti" my watts are set to 60. It took me a few hours of vaping and not smoking to get use to the flavor. It doesn't taste like a cigarette. It does taste like a light hit of fresh cut tobacco. You'll be able to appreciate the flavor if you do try to smoke a cigarette after vaping this all day. Next the throat hit. Harsh at first but it'll ease up once you figure out what settings works best for you. However, once you are use to the throat hit... it's a great reminder that you're vaping a product that has been steeped with real Tobacco and not something you just ate for breakfast like fruity pebbles.

I was skeptical when I read all the reviews but I figured I'd spend thirty dollars on cigarettes in less than five days anyway,so what the hell.
Best thirty dollars I've spent in a long time!! Thanks black note

smooth and tasty

First purchased the notebook to get a feel for 4 different flavors, Prelude was light and smooth, but Forte was easily my favorite. Followed by Legato. That said I could easily make Prelude my all day vape.

tip top none better

Prelude was the first juice I tried. That was over a year ago, and I have been a black note customer ever since. I had been researching e juices looking for a juice with true tobacco flavor, I came upon a top ten article of tobacco flavored juices and black note was rated no. 1 so I gave it a try and have not looked back. I did try other tobacco flavors by other companies all were cheaper than prelude buy none tasted like tobacco they all had hints of chemical additives none tasted like tobacco! Somewhere along I tried sonata and quartet and I found all to be the highest quality, none better

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.
