Great juice

I've tried to stop smoking many times only to find the ejuice I've tried has either had a chemical taste or sweet flavor that made my stomach hurt. I've found thank goodness Blacknote which to my surprise has zero chemical taste no sweet taste. It's like smoking mar reds without the horrible smell of an ashtray and after 30ish tobacco kinds I've found juice that hits like a cig, taste better and much cleaner taste. I wish I'd found them sooner. I can't thank Blacknote enough or explain how much it taste like a red but only better. I've had prelude which is great and sonata again great. If your wondering if it will work or worried it will taste like sh***y others then I urge you just try it and you will drop cigs for good. I smoked 25yrs and again can't thank Blacknote enough. I'll give their others a try but prelude and sonata will be hard to match but being such high quality I won't be shocked if all are good. Please please to all smokers just try the small sample. I in no way work for or trying to sell the product. It sells it's self. I'd give it a 10 if I could and hope to see bigger bottles in the future. Thanks to all here for what you've did for myself and family. Customer for life

Perfectly light but tasty

One of my standards. Great flavor but light and brighter than some of my other favorites from Black Note - makes a prefect morning vape.

Imagine that

Imagine a fresh unopened pack of cigarettes. Now imagine yourself removing the plastic wrapper and tilting back the box lid to remove the foil and inhale the aroma prior to taking out that first analog - Prelude replicates that experience over and over again with fresh batches, never having to burn anything to ruin that experience. Savor it : )

(I would like to see a higher pg ratio in all options as I prefer it over vg - that might increase the throat hit so to speak)

I decided to try Prelude, this might be my favorite Blacknote product. Full earthy flavor, that is as close to actual cigarette as can be. I will be buying this again

Love it!

Prelude was my first order after reading all many good things about it. I loved the fact that the process is totally natural and that the tobacco grows in Italy where I am from, a little pride in that ;) and I love music!
After finding the right setup with my device I fell in love with it, the tobacco flavor is smooth and very pleasant, it has a very mild throat hit and it's hard to stop because it tastes so good!
Now I am trying Sonata and I find it a little stronger than Prelude, I think it is even closer to the cigarette taste although I don't feel any throat hit. I cannot wait to try the others, I think I will keep switching between these two for now, they are simply excellent.
Another note, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous, the customer service is fantastic and the shipping is incredibly fast! Yes, you pay for it because it's not cheap but you get a 10 star product and treatment.

Prelude was the one flavor that made me quit analogs!

What can I say...Balck Note Prelude was the one flavor that gave me the chance to quit analogs after 40+ years of smoking.

I got into vaping back in '08 with the first pen style e-cigs...and since then I have tried to find the perfect tobacco flavor at no avail and I could not ever last on e-cigs alone. Then about a month ago I got a new sub-ohm mod and really focused on finding the right tobacco flavor that will give me the chance to quit analogs for good. After watching a Youtube review on Black Note flavors, I thought I give Prelude, Solo and Legato a try.

OMG these flavors are all amazing and the closest to real american, and EU tobacco flavor....with no chemical smell or taste. Solo was more like a dessert type menthol analog...that I loved to have after a good dinner. Mixing Prelude with Solo (1:1 or 2:1) creates a tobbaco taste with a hint of sweetness and coolness.

Black Note e-liquids are top quality and worth every penny. Shipping was fast and customer support excellent. Actually there was a mistake on my 3rd order and not only the took care of it immediately but they also provided me with a sample gift of their discontinued and really rare "Cadenza" Greek Basma tobacco flavor. This gesture and Cadenza's flavor...turned me into a Black Note customer for life.

I am not writing this review to get just the reward have to know that I grew up in Greece actually hand- picking Greek Basma, Kentucky and Virginia tobacco leaves while at my grandpa's farm during the summers at age 14-17...and going through the whole process of stringing and air drying the tobacco leaves...while getting a heavy black glue-like residue of nic on my hands for days. So I know exactly how these smell and taste...and I guess that's why I may have always been addicted to nic...for most of my life.

If you hand-picked harvested air-dried tobacco at their true form before MFG processing and smoke them...each of these tobacco varieties would taste exactly as the Black Note varieties... and that's what has made me a loyal customer. The bonus to all this is the fact that I quit analogs for the first time in my life!

Do not make the mistake I made and waste you money on any other tobacco flavor e-liquid that you going to trush. Black Note is the real deal.

I am new to vaping, but Prelude is the best tobacco vape I have had.

I just can't see what the hype is about. Its good but I've had better tobacco juices. Its definitely not worth 30 dollars and I've had both prelude and quartet. I'm putting a five star so they don't block the review but its more like a four for the juice and a three for the price.

Super Service!

Been vaping since 2013 after 35 years of 2 packs a day. Strictly tobacco flavors, no fruity or sweet juice for me. Finally after searching and trying many tobacco flavored juices (many of them NET) I have found it. Black Note is my brand. Sonata and Prelude being my favorite. Hats off to Black Note for excellent service! Ordered Friday and received on Monday, which was a pleasant surprise! Live in S.C. so i wasn't expecting till Wednesday (3 business days) Thank you, Black Note for your commitment to your customers. Truly Professionals! ✌

Best juice hands down. Taste is complex. Light and smooth in the beginning with a full savory tobacco taste after you exhale. It's only Prelude and Solo for me.

As Ex-Smoker I can say this is the closest tobacco flavor to the real thing. I tried almost every tobacco flavor in the market, nothing come close to this PRELUDE.

Thanks Black Note!!!

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.
