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!

Quality Meets Flavor

Prelude is very smooth with a mild sweet taste. No after taste at all. I really like it as an all-day or treat vape. I would definitely recommend it to others as a must try. It is the top tier of RY4 tobacco hybrids.

Authentic flavor

I like menthol, but with all the hype surrounding this brand I feel like I'd miss out if I only tried their menthol. I vaped on this for a couple of days and I've really enjoyed it. The cheap tobacco flavors on the market taste like vaping syrup with how sweet they are but this has subtle sweetness. Not the greatest at making builds so the throat hit varied with the last build being super smooth but overall, with good builds and your preferred strength I think it's money well spent.

My new favorite!

I started with the Black Note Forte, then tried Prelude. Prelude is now my top e-liquid. A great taste, with a nice peppery throat hit. Closest thing to smoking an actual cigarette that you can get.

Best in the Game

I have tried too many liquids to count looking for a real tobacco flavor. And I have finally found it. Then I tried to find an alternative and couldn't! Not even close. So I am back to Black Note full-time. And I couldn't be happier.

Zero time smoking (2 weeks no real smoke (Marlboro Red's) and I don't miss the real thing at all.

Ideal compliment to the new refillable e-cigs

I have previously written that Prelude is an excellent e-liquid and extolled the smoothness and rich tobacco flavor. Now, I have found that the 18% is perfect for replacing the liquid sold with the e-cigarettes that can be refilled. I currently use the e-cig from Boulder called the Rock. The pods are refillable and they have their own liquids to buy. But, when you want a change or yearn for the flavor you are used to with your mod, as I was, just bump up the nicotine level so that you get the same sensation you would vaping at a lower one. Try refilling your refillable e-cig with Black Note at the 18% level (which is about the same as the standard e-cig) and you will find that the experience you have is much more satisfying.

Good, but not my favorite.

This was the first e-juice I tried from Black Note. It was good enough to show me that Black Note has really created something special. But there were a few things I disliked about it. For starters, I found it just a tad too sweet. Not overpowering, but not bold enough for my liking. I'd imagine that if you previously smoked light cigarettes you might love this. It just wasn't really for me. But I've since tried the Prelude and Solo varieties, and can confidently say they're the two best I've ever vaped. I'm sold on Black Note. It's expensive, but well worth it if you enjoy quality e-juice and don't mind spending a bit extra for the best.

I'm an ex-cigarrette non-menthol smoker who went through a dozen brands and flavors of e-liquids before trying Black Note's Prelude blend.

It's hands up the best juice I've used and am sticking with it.

Not an inexpensive e-juice but worth every penny.

Haven't had an urge for a regular cigarette for years now.

Thanks Black Note for blending the tasty Prelude mix.

Prelude continues to amaze me. Always consistently clean and pure smoke juice. The Black Note NET formula is lab tested and free from harmful chemicals. The steeping process ensures a real, and I mean real, tobacco taste. I smoked for 33 years, 6 yrs. Ago switched to vaping 1.6% nicotine, then 1.2, then .06, and now I vape Prelude 0.0% nicotine. Unlike other tobacco flavored juices, Black Note IS REAL TOBACCO!!!!! Trust me, try it, you will Love it, and hopefully Live Longer

Worth every penny

I have tried many tobacco flavors and decided to purchase a couple from Black Note to see what all the hype was about. So glad I did. Though they are a bit pricey, they are well worth the cost. Prelude is a great tobacco flavor. It has a mild smooth, but flavorful taste. I also ordered the Legato, which I also love. Customer service was flawless. Glad I ordered!

My Fav

If your an X smoker and prefer non-sweet liquid Prelude does the job just fine. Sticking to the same juice also saves on coil changes, so keep that in mind. The shipping is super fast, who could ask for more!!!!!!!!

Thank you

My bridge club and I vapor and we are older and don't want bubble gum or cotton candy for vaping. So we found Black Note and we bought the 4 different flavors. For thirteen old women waiting for this shipment was a big deal and we were meeting every night bringing in our tips to try the flavors when they came in. The day our bottles arrived the word went out and we had husbands and friends and our members all in rows to try a flavor. As being the youngest of all at 62, my job was tasked to make sure everyone got the info on which they preferred, then they wanted me to order in my name. I told them they were not in witness protection and they could order their own, we loved all the flavors but Prelude is my personal favorite. We thank you very much for making a fine quality vaping liquid. We won't go anywhere else.

Their products are amazing!!

This eliquid is the closest thing to a real cigarette there is! Also, even though it's a little more expensive than other eliquids, a tank lasts longer due to its makeup and also my coils last longer. It's a must have for me at all times!

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.
