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 recently got back into vaping and have ordered many many flavors ranging on every side of the spectrum you could imagine. They all get old after awhile- so I took a shot at this as I've never tried a tobacco flavored liquid. I'm so impressed. Also the messages inside the box and the one sent to my email when it shipped had me rolling. Shipped at light speed. Over all a fantastic experience.

Straight, Bright, Delicious Tobacco

I love Prelude. It's like Sonata without the cavendish. It's light and bright, semi sweet, but quite full of flavor. It's good to keep some of the dryer flavors such as Legato on board to keep your tastebuds satisfied by swapping as needed. Black Note is in a league of their own in this industry. This is real tobacco flavor. Period. Customer service is also incomparable. They know the power of their product and so do I! If you've been a smoker add Prelude to your lineup and you'll not need a cigarette ever again. Just make sure you have a mod that will put out enough voltage (variable voltage recommended). Under powering this eliquid will provide undesired results and harshness.

smooth and sweet

Much smoother than the tobacco liquid I purchased with my Smok Alien. I've only tried this one from the classical sampler and it is fantastic. I am looking forward to trying the other juices as well.

PRELUDE, for me is a very mild and tame flavor, but yet never fails to satisfy.

Prelude is a mild tobacco which grows on you after a few hours. I keep switching flavors but always want to come back to Prelude. At 12 mg on a 1.8 ohm coil vaping at 12 watts its just perfect. Have tried Sonata which I also like but the lightness of Prelude brings me back to it every few days.

Taste Perfection

I can not give this product enough stars. I have been searching, for what seems like forever, to find an actual e-juice that tastes like tobacco. So many companies claim that their tobacco flavors, tastes like tobacco, but they never do, & if you are anything like me; who loves the taste of their tobacco, nothing gets under your skin more, when you spend the money & it doesn't even come close to tasting anything like tobacco. You will not experience that, when you order e-juice from Black Note. Prelude, is so delicious & smooth tasting, that it is truly taste perfection. I couldn't be more pleased with my order & if I could, I would give this & the other 2 flavors I've tried (Forte & Quartet), more than 5 stars. Well worth the money & true to its description & flavor.

Can't get enough

This is my favorite blend and I bought more prelude. I can and have vaped this stuff for three days straight. It reminds me of Turkish blend pipe tobacco. Extremely satisfying vape. I just can't get enough, I keep reaching for this and leaving my fruity, dessert e-liquids alone.

Bit too sweet for me

Prelude has a terrific flavor, a very good tobacco taste but too sweet for my taste. As a former non-filtered cig smoker I still need a vape that is similar to smoking a cigarette. Prelude reminds me a bit of a sweet pipe tobacco or cigar. I do tend to think that is probably a very popular flavor with a lot of ex-smokers. I have to give it four stars simply because it's not my favorite Black Note flavor. It was definitely worth sampling though!

A smooth transition awaits you.

While this is not the first Black Note e-liquid I tried, it is definitely the one I would suggest to anyone who is looking for a substitute for those icky sticks. Not only is Prelude the closest taste to the majority of tobacco products, it produces an overall smooth experience. No harsh nicotine hit, no aftertaste and the silky smoothness of the best tobacco cigarette you have ever had. Of the Black Note offerings, this would be the best to try first in my opinion. You will want to try the rest after you do.

I have The Ultimate Tobacco E-Juice Sample Box. This is my absolute favorite blend. It taste like Turkish blend pipe tobacco. I used to buy that pipe tobacco when I rolled my own cigarettes.

Best of the best

Prelude is by far the best juice for someone wanting to come off of cigarettes. This is my everyday vape and I would give it 10 stars if I could.

Finest eLiquid yet

I've been vaping exclusively since late summer when I finally quit cigarettes definitively. Since then, I've tried MANY different e-liquids from various companies (which I'll leave unnamed to not prejudice those who need to experiment for themselves) and Prelude is, without exception, my finest experience. I tried it first through a Black Note 8-sampler box, which I went through from top to bottom. It was in the top upper-left slot, so my first taste, and I immediately thought "No wonder these Black Notes get such high praise." I didn't believe it would be the best of the lot -- first toke euphoria -- but by the time I got through one full device of each, and liked them all well enough, remembering Prelude and going back to finish it off was the coda. I've ordered two bottles since, and while I have half- and three-quarter empty bottles of a couple dozen various other blends that I've also purchased over the last months, all the Prelude is almost finished. It's better than all of them and I can't help filling it up. Now I'm only waiting to "get through" the others and just stock up a few gallons of Prelude. Although . . . I just ordered some Quartet, partly because the reviews of it are too compelling. Besides, everything in the sampler box was really good and I believe any one could have become a favorite if Prelude just hadn't been SO full and smooth. I figure maybe only Black Note can beat its own product so now I'm going to find out if Quartet will be the only flavor that I like even better. I read a reviewer here that says he too loves Prelude and "needs" to try Quartet but is "afraid." Live large my man -- it's real likely, to me anyway, that ANY Black Note will be good, and just maybe that Quartet will please four times as much as a Prelude.

Excited for my order

I first tried black note prelude from a friend. I wasn't aware of it until I asked as I could immediately tell the difference between this and the other 'premium' juices I have been vaping since I started about 2 months ago. Used to smoke cigarillos (and cigarettes in the past) and this is the closest, most authentic tobacco taste I experienced to the real thing. My first personal order gets here tomorrow and I am super excited. Pretty sure I will end up ordering another tomorrow while they have their holiday sales going on! I would vape this all the time if it weren't for the high cost. I can justify spending $15 for a 30ml bottle but not $30! (without sales). Either way, it's definitely worth it and overall a great vaping experience.
