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!

Impressed, to say the least!

Just quit smoking a couple months ago, with vaping being the major tool to sticking to it. After seeing the many candy, fruit, cake, rolls, and donut flavors, I wasn't sure I'd find a good, not super sweet, tobacco flavor I could stick with. After reading many reviews, someone mentioned black note, and how they stick to only authentic tobacco flavors. Also limiting the many unnecessary fillers in their e-juice. Keeping it simple, so I had to give them a try. Your not going to read any disappointments here! Lovely site and selection, and let's not ignore the hilarious email you receive once it's shipped out. I pictured the whole thing in my head and seriously want to see this as a commercial for black note! Pretty please, lol! Shipping was warp speed, and packed securely. Overall, great people to deal with. Loved this prelude! Fresh tobacco taste, with a touch of sweetness, but barely there. Light, yet I feel that slight throat hit I liked as a smoker. That legato will be the next one for sure. Wonderful company, thank you for all the effort you put into everything. It's much appreciated : )

Like so many others, I was a smoker for a long time. I have tried many brands looking for any juice that would even resemble the flavor of a cigarette.
I realize that vapor is not going to be the same. It just can't happen. I had some tobacco flavors I would mix that seemed ok. Unfortunately, that company double billed me (which they readily admitted) and it took over a month to get credited. No more business for Vaporfi. I tried the Prelude and was amazed how smooth and tobacco like it is. Yes, it is more expensive, but you get what you pay for and it costs much less than cigarettes, not to mention health benefits.
I will be ordering Black Note as long as the quality and service remain this good.

I liked other products better but still good!

The taste is sweet like dried cherries. The aroma is delightful. The bite is minimal for a Virginia tobacco. I really like this

My first review for italian (and also for international tobacco lovers)

Ho ordinato il box di assaggio per provare tutte le qualità di tabacco. Credo che Black Note abbia una passione enorme in fatto di tabacchi, e questo si traduce in un'attenzione ai dettagli e alle sfumature degna dei migliori produttori al mondo. Il consiglio che do agli appassionati di tabacco è di provare Prelude per il suo sapore semplice ma rotondo in bocca. Il valore di una buona sigaretta elettronica (e l'efficacia nell'essere un'alternativa alle sigaretta) è data da due componenti: il liquido utilizzato e il tank per la vaporizzazione. Consiglio di assaporare il Prelude utilizzando un Nautilus X della casa Aspire con resistenze da 1.8 ohm. Per chi fuma di guancia o vuole provare un leggero tiro di polmone è un prodotto che esalta le qualità del tabacco.
For non italians: Prelude is more than a tobacco liquid, it is a marvellous experience where passion and flavours are mixed with perfect balance.

My favorite

I always go for the tobacco flavored eliquids. For me, vaping is a smoking cessation tool, and so far has been the only thing that works.

Having said that, I have tried many different tobacco flavored eliquids, and this one is, thus far, my favorite.

In my current stock I have brands like Halo, Take 5, Vaporshark and others. While I am a big fan of Take 5's "Rich", Black Note's "Prelude" is perfect for my palate. The quality is simply outstanding.

If it weren't cost-prohibitive, it would be my regular. Unfortunately, the $35/30mL price point will deter me from choosing this as my "regular" brand.

Simply Amazing

Prelude is simply the best e-liquid I have ordered. It has a wonderful flavor and is not over powering or strange tasting like other tobacco liquids. This is as close to a real cigarette as possible in my opinion. Can't wait to order the rest of the ensemble.

Fantastic & Smooth

I was always getting my juice from The Vapor Pro, they went out of business. Very stressful. Thought I would never find anything I would like. After some research I discovered Black Note and then ordered the Notebook to try temp out. After that I decided on Prelude, Legato and Sonata. I love them all and alternate between them all the time. Fantastic company and service but the best are their products. I feel special when it arrives in the mail because Black Note is very special!

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.
