The best Black Note ejuice

Awesome vape

Prelude is my favorite vape. I have been off cigs and vaping for 5 years. Prelude offers the best tobacco flavor and satisfaction for an ex-smoker. I’ll never go back. Feel well!

Excellent flavor

The flavor is similar to the smell of unburnt tobacco in a light cigarette. Very satisfying vape for an ex-smoker.

Praise Prelude

Prelude is my go to flavor, beautiful tobacco flavor. It is on the light side, like a Marlboro light. I tried Legato which is a tad stronger, but Legato has a Nutty after taste ,which is fine but I don't like nuts. If Prelude could be made a tad stronger to mimic a Marlboro medium or red, that would be sublime. Very happy with Prelude, and the service / shipping. regards..

Great flavor, could be a little stronger though

Prelude has a great taste. It is easily the best tasting juice I've tried so far. At first, I was filling up Juul pods with it, but the drag was quite weak. Through a 0.6ohm vape though, it is much better. I still find it a bit weaker than I would prefer. I was surprised that it wasn't throatier, considering what I had read about it. Still, the flavor is just really good and it is still my favorite juidce.

The Very Best

I have been vaping for 5 years and have tried dozens of tobacco flavors and nothing tasted like real tobacco. Then I tried Black Note!!! This taste like a real cigarette! Prelude is my everyday, all time vape from now on. The search is over! Thanks, Black Note! Can't get stars to work but this is a definite 5!

Boiled Milk

I ordered Prelude and latakia tobacco last week. Latakia is fine tobacco taste and very well balanced.

Prelude is weird. It tastes like boiled milk. I was not expecting this from black note. It could be related to my batch only.

Very good!

I was looking to switch from Juul, but I love their Virginia Tobacco. I tried five non-salt alternatives, but they were all terrible. Prelude turned out to be just the thing. I'm glad I gave it a shot.

No Consistency

I got my 2nd prelude, I must say; it is not the same thing. Inhale smell is really bad. I don't know what happened. I am still working out details with customer care.

Black Note's Prelude is my favorite non-menthol tobacco flavored sauce. After smoking for nearly 3 decades, I find myself missing the taste and the ritual of rolling my own smokes. I have Prelude for that satisfying taste when I get my daily ritual of changing out the wick in my RDA now :) And as always when I order from Black Note, a super speedy delivery. Thanks y'all!

Prelude, very nice.

Prelude was the first flavor that I tried from Black Note. At first I didn't really like it and after a few weeks of it started to grow on me. It does have a nice smooth tobacco taste. Black Note also has GREAT customer service.

This is definitely the best tobacco e-juice I've ever tasted. I've tried many different brands and Black Note Prelude is hands down the best. Excellent smoky tobacco flavor with a hint of sweetness. This is my new number one all day e-juice.

Having 4 flavors is more than enough. I've been vaping for a year, and until I found Black Note it was always on to the next flavor. I started with the Sonata and now I'm vaping Prelude. It has absolutely everything that I want in a juice. I can top other juices off with it to give it a bit of spice, or just fill my tank up.

It is BY FAR the best tobacco liquid I have ever had!

As many others, I tried many other tobacco liquid since probably 8 years now. (started vaping at the age of 19)

The best I´ve got previously was the old "Desert Ship" by Dekang, which afterwards got changed. It also got a different taste after a few days of vaping where you get "used" to it and it numbs down.
Second best was JB or JP, forgot the exact name - from some small german liquid maker.

Everything else I tried, probably 30-40 tobacco liquids till now, was crap.

Now about the BlackNotes tobacco series I have heard a year ago already and it made me very eager to try. Unfortunately, I wasn´t able to find any in Albania - the e-cigarette shop owner had only one bottle for himself.

Finally a month ago, it was the time and he started selling them, and what can I say.

It is BY FAR the best tobacco liquid I have ever had.

The best tobacco flavor!

This is by far the best tobacco flavor I have tasted. I was a former Virginia Slim cigarette smoker and prelude is about as close as it gets to the real thing. Give it a try you won't be disappointed!

Very smooth, light flavor.

The Prelude is very light and smooth, with a touch of sweetness. If you like an ultralight flavor, this one is the ticket. Tasty!

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.
