The real thing!

Just before I gave up the whole thing, I tried Black Note and smiled, thank you so much for such a high quality product, real tobacco with no side effects, I'm in love!

Excellent quality

This e-liquid is a high quality with very nice taste. It is the closest taste to tobacco without all the chemicals.
I like the fact that shipping is very prompt.
Thank you Black Note.

Prelude- I can’t say enough about this absolutely perfect eliquid. Every time I hit this I get a huge grin. Every time. I can hardly keep up with the cornucopia of gobsmacking flavors. Makes me feel like a king. Service with this top shelf company is always hassle-free, too. I can’t get the stars to light up, but needless to say it’s a 5star + product. Thank you Black Note!

Extremely pleased!

I'm trying to remember if this was the flavor that tasted most like a Marlboro. Have tried all of them except the menthol. Hope this is the one. Either legato, or sonata was my other ones I tried. Been using rock.and like it fairly well. Just looking for a strong cigarette replacement. Prelude will be a start to finding the srtongest. After doing a 30min phone interview with your rep I have to say I did expect a little more thanks than a one bottle discount. Still the only product I use every single day in spite of having 41 other brands to chose from.

Great stuff!

Like others, I smoked cigs for 45 years, afraid to even try quitting. I got a really bad cough with my “winter cold” in Jan 2016, and was unable to smoke at all without serious coughing fits. I stopped trying to smoke because it hurt so much. After a few days, the coughing let up, but I really wanted to have a cig. I tried an ecig - wow, so much better than nothing, i tried a few brands until Black Note ended the search for the tobacco flavor I craved. Not 1 puff in 2.5 years! I use Prelude with a small bit of Sonata mixed, and I gradually got down to 0%. Yay me!

Real Deal

50 plus years I smoked cigs and then 2 years ago Californica taxed cigs to the 9$ level! That same day I purchased my first vaping gear and juice! For six or eight months I tried many other vendors products and all fell short of real tobacco flavors! Then I discovered Black Note!
JACKPOT I found the real deal and have been a devoted customer for a year and a half! Tried all flavors and have enjoyed all!

Light and sweet tobacco flavor

This is a nice plain Jane tobacco juice. This is a great starting point before you move on to other flavors to see if you want to explore other flavors.

The best tobacco flavor out there

OMG 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!!!

I quit smoking cigarettes 3 years ago by switching to vaping. Until I found Black Note and most especially Prelude I was constantly changing 'flavors' because I just don't like the fruity, sweet, flavored juice. I also was searching for something as natural as possible. I LOVE Prelude! Forte is an extremely close second. Thank you Black Note!

Closest to actual cigarettes

This brand is very good. I also like Halo's Tribeca, but this one knocks it out of the park with a more natural flavor and added sweetness that is also surprisingly natural as well. I am also hoping I will enjoy the menthol from Black Note .

Great taste

I orders 1 bottle to try, all other real tobacco tasting eliquid are horrible. But this one surprised me. Great liquid just what I needed to get me over smoking ciggys. I ordered another bottle after the first taste great job.

Beautiful Flavor & Vape

This is a smooth, nice vape that gives me the same throat hit as the Marlboro Blacks I smoked. Since I have tried Blacknote vapes 2 years ago, I'll never try anything else. I have & they never compare. So the good news is Blacknote is by far the best vape on the market, but the bad news is they ruined every other flavor out there because nothing else compares. Which I'm OK with. They are by far the best.

Prelude - Overall

First I would like to start by saying that Prelude was not for me. It was a little too light. SO why the 5 start review then. I believe like me this is where most people will start when looking at Black Note so I wanted to give my overall review here rather than somewhere else. The shipping was quick and on time. The packaging in unique and functional while have a "cool" factor. The overall taste while a little light for me I did find another in the line that was beyond perfect. (See my review of Sonata). After using Black Note for a couple weeks a few observations. The best and #1 selling point for me is that there is no artificial aftertaste. I have scoured high and low in the vape market and have not been able to find another tobacco that doesn't have that artificial after taste. Some do a good job but all of them that I have tried have it. I liken it to that taste you get from drinking a diet soda. Black note has no trace of this just very smooth with some natural hints of whichever flavor you get. Truly amazing!!!The other thing I noticed is how the coil and tube stay much cleaner with all my other tobacco’s when you would refill or switch coils there was always this sticky build up that kind of stained everything. With My black Note I have noticed that this kind of buildup and sticky mess is no longer present. As for taste - that's going to be a personal decision. If prelude is not for you try a few of the others I will bet that there is one that hits the right spot for you.

Prelude was my first purchase through Black Note and I couldn't be happier! I've ordered it at least 8 times so far...tempted to try other flavors as well. But I'm a creature of habit so who knows when? One thing I like about Prelude is there is NO funky aftertaste! Overall taste is very clean and bright. I also appreciate the super quick service. I live near Boston and I have consistently received my orders all the way from California within 3 business days of placing my orders...and with free shipping!!! Can't be beat! Thanks Black Note!

The product is great, but......

Recommendation: A lot of people benefit from the reviews of the various e-liquid flavors. They are very informative and make for a good initial guide to those who are getting to know Blacknote products. But the review criteria (products) falls short in one very important way. I suggest you add a review spot for customer service. I have been a loyal Blacknote customer for a few years - I buy nothing else. My loyalty was initially based on the superior products. But this loyalty has been cemented more-so based on superior customer service. I order on-line as I live in the Pacific Northwest. Ordering anything on line carries risks. Mistakes are going to happen, or at times you’ll run into stock problems, with every on-line retailer. It’s just the nature of things. But what separates one company from another is how they respond to problems. While I’ve only run into problems with my orders only a few times, every time this company has responded in an extraordinary and personal way. Responses are quick and highly effective, even if it’s just an inquiry (vs an ordering or delivery problem). So please allow your true colors to shine and add a customer service review criteria. I guarantee this will serve you well. Post-note: Big shout-out to Jamie who helped me through my last minor challenge.

Favorite Pure Juice

Smooth and rich with a great after taste. My 3rd favorite behind Solo and Pop.

When I first found BlackNote this was the first one that I wanted to try..... until I seen Pop. Well long story short I got it and it’s so good. I mean if you enjoy tobacco as I do you will love this. I honestly can say that vaping tobacco has to be the best way to enjoy tobacco the taste is so rich and no after taste or anything it’s just a really good flavor Almost too good because I find myself just vaping it for the taste which consumes more than I should Try this flavor and you won’t be disappointed

What is Naturally Extracted Tobacco E-Liquid?

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.
