Quartet incorporates the four elements of sun, fire, earth and air to produce a rich, intense smoky-peppery tobacco. The blend embraces the Syrian Latakia process of sun-curing the tobacco, then smoke-curing over controlled fires of Valonia oak, Aleppo pine, Lebanon cedar, Greek juniper and indigenous aromatic herbs. The result is a powerfully distinct symphonic delight for the senses.
Read more about Quartet

Sun, fire, earth and air are the four key components in the creation of Quartet, a tobacco blend brought to life using the rare Syrian Latakia process. The flavorfully spicy blend produces a symphony of perceptions, with a tango of smoky-peppery taste and aroma.

The process of creating authentic Syrian Latakia tobacco is rare within itself, and we did one better by acquiring a one-of-a-kind lot of Syrian Latakia tobacco that had been patiently and perfectly aged for a full eight years.

We are proud to offer our tobacco aficionados a numbered limited edition of Quartet, featuring this scarce and sensational tobacco, for the collection and enjoyment of true connoisseurs.

Bull’s-Eye

Hitting our Syrian Latakia target

In our perpetual search for perfection, we began visiting tobacco specialists around the world to explore their private and intimate collections of rare tobacco. One Italian specialist had an astonishing collection, giving us a chance to taste a diversity of tobacco types from a variety of origins.

Each tobacco blend enchanted us in its own way – until we met the Syrian Latakia. Once the specialist bid us to take a taste of the eight-years-aged Syrian Latakia, we were finally enlightened as to what true enchantment tasted like.

Fully captivated by the experience, we were able to appraise and decided to purchase at any cost this small, unique and precious lot. And it’s now available to you, for only as long as quantities last.

Finding a Syrian Latakia blend that has been patiently aged for nearly a decade is one of our most notable moments in the history of Black Note. And anyone aware of the painstaking effort involved in each step of the Syrian Latakia process will understand why.

Here Comes the Sun

First step in Latakia process

The first step in the Syrian Latakia production process is the sun-curing of the tobacco in tightly- sealed barns. Here the sun’s vibrant rays reduce the tobacco leaves’ moisture content while enhancing the tobacco’s natural flavor.

Fueling the Fire

Second step in Latakia process

The next step is to smoke-cure the tobacco over controlled fires of Valonia oak, Aleppo pine, Lebanon cedar, Greek juniper and indigenous aromatic herbs. The Mediterranean woody plants and native herbs produce a dark, smoky leaf with an intense yet delicate taste and aroma.

Down to Earth

Foundation of growth

Earth plays a role in the Syrian Latakia process by providing the foundation and nutrients required for the tobacco and native foliage to grow. Soft rains and humid soil in the milder Mediterranean seasons produce the ideal environment for indigenous plant life to flourish.

Air Apparent

Delivering the notes

Air’s part in the process is to deliver the aromatic notes during the smoke-curing process. Oxygen fuels the crackling flames that produce the powerful smoke that caresses and infuses the tobacco leaves with their unmistakable Syrian Latakia aroma and taste.

Accidental Discovery

Stored in smoky homes

The Syrian Latakia process was most likely discovered by accident when small farmers were forced to store unsold tobacco in their fire-heated homes. The stored tobacco ended up taking on the flavor and aroma of the smoke, yet the product was initially shunned.

Savvy manufacturers knew pipe tobacco was already being produced using fire-curing methods, tobacco that was quite costly. They decided to try the smoke-cured tobacco coming out of Syria’s Port of Latakia. The Syrian Latakia name was born, as was a market for the sun-cured and smoke-cured tobacco.

Make Mine Rare

Scarcity of Syrian Latakia

The rarity of Syrian Latakia tobacco comes from the Syrian government’s ban on using wood to dry or smoke crops issued after World War II. A scarcity of wood throughout the region led many farmers to move to Cyprus, where they found a more abundant supply of evergreen bushes to cure their tobacco. It is important to note that our Quartet blend is composed of 100% pre-conflict Syrian Latakia.

Although Syrian Latakia is cured with heavier smoke, the tobacco is smoother, cooler and has a more delicate tobacco aroma. Latakia from Cyprus is cured with lighter smoke, yet produces a hotter and stronger taste and aroma.

Work of Genius

Retaining a treasured method

Just as Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 is considered a work of genius, we believe our ninth blend of Quartet using the Syrian Latakia method has a similar status. The savory, smoked note combined with the natural etheric oils from the tobacco produce a refined cool, smooth taste with a melodic peppery burst that can make your senses sing.

Extended Process, Limited Edition

One-of-a-kind opportunity

Just as it would be impossible to recreate the glory of any of Beethoven’s unique symphonies, it would be a real challenge to find another lot of Syrian Latakia that is as precious as the one we currently have available. Some say perfection is impossible to find, but we disagree. We believe we found it with the rare lot of Syrian Latakia that serves as the basis of our limited edition of Quartet.

Excellent Flavor

Finally glad to find a liquid that tastes like real tobacco. I have been using Solo for a little while and wanted to try a more tobacco flavored liquid. Quartet surpassed my expectations. Very nice smokey flavor. Also it pairs well with Solo for a menthol smoke flavor.

Best brew for me so far..........

I tried the Quartet as soon as it became available, having vaped Forte for about 6 months.I keep a small amount of Forte on hand, even mix the two from time to time to change things up, BUT.....Quartet is my new mainstay due to it's robust flavor profile, stronger taste and drier finish. This is not a sugary mix, and most resembles a real tobacco experience. Perfect if you are weaning from cigs or cigars.
On another subject, for the only time, there was a mistake on a recent order which was made right without hassle or delay.
Thank you for the professional, customer focused experience.

Bold Tobacco With Some Spice

I received a sampler of the Quartet a while back. It's bold like forte, but with a but of a peppery tobacco taste, and a smoky finish. Great new flavor.

Very nicely made

This eliquid if great when mixed with solo!!! It's great otherwise, though a little to peppery for me to use as an all day every day blend without mixing it. However, if you like this type of blend for an all day liquid, there is no better producer of it. Of course, when it comes to tobacco flavors there is no better producer of anything than Blacknote.

Less PG please

Hello BN,

First off, I Love the e-juice your company manufactures… It is amazing!!!

But, PG messes with my skin around my mouth and nose. I am forced to vape another company’s e-juice because of the irradiation encountered on my lips, above my mustache, and nose.
For some reason PG irritates my skin surrounding my mouth making BN juices unusable for a week or two.
I always look forward to being able to vaping BN but I can’t because ½ my face feels like it is on fire. I’m not 100% sure, but I do believe it is the PG.
Before I found BN I only vaped VG juice because of the “burn”.

I really wish you would consider a 75/25% blend, or even better yet, a 100% VG e-juice, I would adjust my hardware accordingly.
Please consider my suggestion.

No one tops your e-juice, but I can’t vape it all the time (even though I want to).

Please Help!!!!

Matt

Special Reserve

If Lagavulin is a campfire in a glass, then Quartet is a campfire in a MOD. This is top shelf e-liquid that deserves a spot for special occasions that require a bit more complexity. Mix with Solo for an even more complex offering.

One word... Quality!

I've tried many different brands of Tobacco but after trying Blacknote the difference in quality is obvious. There's Black Note and there's everything else.

Quartet is very flavorful and very authentic tasting. I only vape Quartet certain times of the day, relaxing/unwinding... when I want to treat myself

Can't vape anything else!!

I am hooked!!
I Love all BN juices, but Quartet is by far, the best!
Noting comes closer to an analog cigarette with out all the carcinogens
Flavor is amazing, NO OTHER JUICE COMPARES!!
It may cost a little more, but there is no other juice to compare it to.
By far, the best!.

This is my wife's favorite from Black Note. She bounces back and forth between this and Legato, but Quartet is her favorite. Says it has a very deep and dark flavor.

Quartet

I can appreciate the blend and the flavouring, and it definitely would have an appeal to vapers searching for a distinct, intense, bold flavour. Not a flavour for me, personally, but I can see this as a great option for vapers wanting these flavour characteristics.

Always a treat! Always phenomenal service!!

In earlier posts I stated that I was having difficulties surrounding flavor in my sub-ohms, but I finally got it right!!
Quartet flavor has always been perfect in the Nautilus tank but I was looking for a fuller hit.
I'm now using a 75 watt sub-ohm with an Aspire Milo using TC (temperature control) with a .5 oHm coil set at 205 degrees and the flavor is perfect, just like in a non-sub-ohm.
I'm down to .3% in Quartet and am very satisfied.
When I tell my co-workers that I'm spending $35 for 30ml's of e-juice they think I'm crazy, but they also agree that BN juices are the best tobacco e-juice ever but most of them use fruttie, fruit loops, and bakery flavored e-juices which I don't like.... I want a cigarette replacement and Quartet hits it on the mark for me.
Thank you BN!!!
Thanks for the price drop on Quartet!!.

Always a treat!!!!

Forgot the holiday, so shipping was a day later and I ran out so I was forced to try my old juice. There is no way I can vape anything other than BN now.
Sure, there are allot of less expensive alternatives out there, but, if you want to compare "apple to apples" you can't.... BN is the only apple!!!

Above and beyond all expectations

Tried to quit smoking and take up vaping a couple times and failed, the sweet/fruity juices were fine but didn't address my cravings. I decided to try out Black Note to see if it was something that could replicate the taste and throat hit of a cigarette, so I ordered a 30ml bottle of Quartet at 12mg.

I have now used it for 48 hours and I can't even remember where I put the pack of cigarettes and I don't seem to care. The flavor is pretty much how you can imagine it be by the description - on the inhale I get a very smooth, yet smokey campfire like flavor with the full body throat hit that I'm used to. The exhale then turns into a rich pepper/wood finish. Perfect for anyone who is trying to lay off the cigarettes and replicate the taste and sensation that the desert and fruit flavors can't match.

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.
