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!

My favorite so far...

Amazing quality, and flavor. 12mg @ 17 watts. Nextasis atomizer set up with SS mesh, and wire .7 ohms. None of the cotton set-up's that I've tried this liquid in comes close to the vape experience the mesh provides. It's a must try, Enjoy!

2nd to None

This is the best tobacco flavored juice on the market. It is a bit pricier than other brands, but the quality is top shelf.

Hats off to all of you at Black Note!

Prelude is my forever juice, because I get just the right flavor without funky residue, but I must comment on the fantastic shipping service when ordering from Black Note. You guys are so awesome. I sometimes wait too long before I order, but because I know I can count on your shipping times, I have never run completely out of my ejuice. Superb products, flavors, and shipping too! Very much worth the price difference. Hats off to all of you at Black Note for jobs well done!

Prelude rocks! This reminds me of when I was kid and my uncle grew tobacco and cured it the tobacco barn. Of course we smoked it back then and this taste reminds me of that. A light sweetness and a pure tobacco taste, my fav so far. Try it, it might not be your favorite, but you will surely like it.

Definitely the One

I was skeptic at first but when I tried it for the first time I thought it was the best liquid tobacco flavor I have tried to date.

Still the best!

Two 30ml bottles in, as well as the 10ml from the sampler pack, & it's safe to say this is still my favorite. I'll definitely get more in the future.

Great After Not Smoking (Analogs) For A While

I quit smoking (2 months on the patch and 3 weeks with nothing) and after a while, I began to crave the sensation of inhaling and exhaling, not necessarily the nicotine but just the act of smoking. That's when a friend recommended vaping.
If you come from the world of cigarettes, then most juices out there are simply way. too. sweet. It's like a candy factory exploded in your mouth and that's simply not for me. In terms of taste, Prelude is a great deviation from the mass produced norm. It's still on the sweeter side but it's much softer and pleasant, while containing a nice, subtle hint of tobacco. Being a smoker of many years, I can't taste the tobacco as much as wife, who thought the tobacco taste was much stronger while still enjoying the flavor overall.
So, if you are looking for something that's really strong on the tobacco end, then this is probably not for you. But, if you are looking for something more mild and can be easily vaped throughout the day, while not get tired of the flavor, then Prelude is a fantastic choice.

My Favorite E-Liquid By Far

I've tried many e-liquids. I've tried every black note flavor (excluding solo because I don't care for menthol), and prelude is still my all time favorite. It provides the absolute bar-none best tobacco taste I've ever found. The slight sweetness that comes with the tobacco is perfectly balanced without being overwhelming. I used to smoke camels, and that's probably why I like the hint of sweetness so much. This is the highest caliber of tobacco e-liquids, and I end up ordering a 30mL bottle every month because no other e-liquid provides such quality as Prelude.

Light and Subtle

The flavor of this juice is like a light cigarette. It is very subtle.
However, if you're looking for a great juice to go with your coffee, this is that juice! Coffee supercharges this stuff! The flavor just explodes!

Great flavor!!

Great juice!!! Nice light throat hit (for me). Love the smell. Not chemical at all. This is only tobacco flavored juice I've tried but don't see a need to try others.

Just bought another bottle of this plus Solo as I used to be a menthol smoker.

Highly recommend!

Very light

I ordered the sample pack / notebook so I could try the flavors. This is very light and smooth similar to an American Spirit yellow pack. If you are looking to substitute a cigarette with something similar in taste, Black Note is for you.

Being a former menthol smoker, I was a bit hesitant to try Prelude. The people at Black Note are really on to something here. I was absolutely blown away by the amazing flavor, just a tad of sweetness! Loving the Prelude better than the Solo surprisingly. Placing my second order of Prelude right now. Standing ovation! Well done guys, Well done!

I have looked all over the place trying to find that perfect Tobacco taste. Prelude is it. It is smooth and extremely satisfying. I got so sick and tired of every Tobacco vape being too sweet. This just hits the spot. Although I do wish they still made it in 2.4 nic strength, the 1.8 satisfies and my lungs feel better vaping black note than they did with other juices. Thank you black note!!

Great Product

Great product from company with great customer service. I have made half-dozen purchases and am a satisfied customer.

The best!

Although I haven't tried the quartet yet, Prelude is my favorite of all the rest. I can easily say this is the best e-juice I have ever had, and probably the best ever made! And it's one of the last ones I tried, in a sampler (which will tell you what reading descriptions and reviews will get you - everyone's taste is different, but Black note definitely has yours). 5 Stars for knocking it out of the park with Prelude!

Excellent Choice

As the description says, light, bright and a little sweet. You can't go wrong with this one, and it mixes well with the others. While a bit light for my tastes (think Marlboro light as a distant comparison) it's still one of my favorites. Natural tobacco taste with no tar or harsh chemicals.

Very delicate flavor

This was the first flavor I tried that hook me up with blacknote. Compared to my favorite (legato) this is definitely much less bold and more of a delicate flavor. It would be great as an all day vape, and I might get a bottle every now and then. The company get A++++ for service, shipping and responsivity of customer service.

I was literally speechless when I took the first draw. I exhaled and just whispered "Wow." I repeated that at least ten times. Indescribable. I've been eyeing this company for some time now but had my skepticism. I am no longer a skeptic, but a believer. Truly amazing. I will be adventuring into the other flavors of decadency that Black Note has to offer. Well done, Black Note! Spectacular!

Great! My First Black Note Bottle and By Far The Best Eliquid I Have Ever Had.

Great! My First Black Note Bottle and By Far The Best Eliquid I Have Ever Had. I only like tobacco flavored liquids and I have been through all of them now. Black note is, without question, the best of the best. This blend is great for every day vaping. If you were a smoker, and smoked Marlboros, you were smoking Virginia Tobacco, this flavor. This flavor quenches any urges you may have for cigarette but is soooo much better at the same time. Great throat hit, lot of vapor, works great in sub-ohm and regular rigs. I have several devices. Two of my favorite are not the highest priced ones I have, the V2 Pro Series 3 and 7. If you put this liquid in a pro series 3 with subohm you would swear they were created for each other!! It is the best eliquid in all my device, whether it be a device put together buying all the best components to make one device or a V2 Pro 7. But for some reason, even the big vaping rigs do not hit as well as pro series 3 with it. This is important because the pro series 3 is only $50, which means this juice responds at least as well, if not better, to what most people are using making a great option for anyone with any device.

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.
