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.


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.

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.

*Regarding ALL Blends*

This company is the best. I've searched for 8 years... for a true substitute for cigarettes. This is it. All unique in their flavor profiles. All have a true flavor and feel, and the quality is just so important to the overall experience. Black Note is the only company I'll purchase eliquid from, ever. Nobody else knows what the heck they're doing when they claim "tobacco" flavors. I've been so frustrated for so long with these people and wasted soooo much money based on false, fake advertising for "tobacco" flavored eliquids. I had just about given up when I found this product on another company's website which shall remain nameless, but I am grateful for them having these BN products. If you've never had Black Note- any flavor - you won't believe how real this stuff is. This is the only tobacco eliquid that exists on the planet.

liked very well

I have smoked on and off and then started dipping snuff being I worked offshore and smoking was not as easy of a way for me to get my nicotine. Dipping is such a nasty habit so I started vaping. I started out with the 5 bottle sample pack then ordered a 30 ml. of Quartet. Have never experienced such a truly wonderful taste sensation without all the fruity cover up flavors added to all other vape juice I have tried. Very satisfying WHOLE flavor package. Thanks BLACK NOTE for making a vape juice that I feel safe using due to the lack of ALL the added chemicals to other vapes that I have tried.

a better value!

The first time I reviewed quartet I noticed a funny taste . I was not sure if it was the juice or my device, well it was the device. Since then I`ve been using it on a regular basis and noticed that it burns slower than other juices justifying the slightly higher price. The 39.00 price has been reduced to 35.00 making it more attractive.

This is a robust, authentic, and unique blend. It's amazing how BlackNote achieves the flavor of this liquid. The flavor is very rich and smoky. Quite distinct from the other flavors. If you're reserved about the price differencd, don't be. It's priced higher because it costs them more to make. You will know where you're extra $5 went as soon as you get your first rip of Quartet- The deep, rich flavor. Do yourself a favor and try this stuff because although I can't say it's the best (all Blacknote flavors are amazing) it's something you will crave and want to keep a stash of! Kudos to BN!

Best Ever

Quartet is in a class all by itself. I am hooked. Expensive but worth every penny. Love it. Try it and I promise you that you will not be disappointed. Thank you Black Note!!!!

Pure, but not my favorite

Quartet definitely has a smoky and spicy flavor, and also is probably the most robust Black Note flavor I've tried. I really like it as a change up to my preferred Forte and Legato, but Quartet is not an all day vape for me.

Tastes like you are smoking a beautiful lowland whiskey!!

I have been a smoker for 16 years and due to the obvious health risks and in Australia the high cost of a packet I decided it was time to quit. I have tried every different way to quit before, however I love the taste of cigarettes so when reviewing online I was told Black Note was the only way to go. I certainly was not disappointed!! Quartet is a delicious blend of tobacco and the flavour suits my style perfectly. It really does make me feel like I am drinking a whiskey like Lagavulin with a smokey, smooth oak flavour. It may be a bit much for someone looking for a simple tobacco taste, but for those after a little more this is a definite choice. The price may be more than Black Note's other selections, but it is worth it.

Very Happy to see the price drop on Quartet, Thank you BN!!

Since the very first time I tried Black Notes' Notebook e-juices, I have not vaped another e-juice.
Quartet is my favorite, I used to vape it only as a treat because of the $10 price difference compared to Sonata (my second favorite).
I was mixing Quartet & Sonata to make my Quartet last longer and still get the real tobacco flavor, and as a real treat I filled my tank with 100% Quartet, especially when putting a new coil in.
But, since the price has been recently lowered, it will be all I will purchase.
I use an Aspire Nautilus tank because the Black Note juice flavor is perfect. I have tried it in my UDCT\1.5ohm cartomizer and it is equally as good but allot more work in the priming aspect and there is a 3.5ml juice waste when the carto goes bad.
I puff on my Nautilus all day long and I usually get a full week from one coil, sometimes even 8 or 9 days. That fact is a true testimony of the quality of BN e-juices!! No impurities to muck up your coils!! I used to go through the same coils every 2 or 3 days with all other e-juices.
Thank you Black Note!!

Another winner!

I've been vaping Quartet the past few days and it is a terrific contrast to my daily juice which is Forte. Quartet is smooth and very much like the tobacco I used to smoke. I love the smoky "note", subtle but enough there to remind me of roll your own cigs. Once again BN you've come up with a great juice! Thanks!

Rethink It

Ok, right up front, not my favorite flavor. Simply a bit too "distinctive" as a stand alone for me. But... I keep buying it, just not too often. I use (maybe 20%) it to add a bit of punch to the milder flavors like Sonata or Prelude. So if you have tried it, and shied away, give that a whirl. You may find yourself ordering again... just not too often.

Throughout the trying year of 2016, I found myself in a few challenging situations that brought about that old desire to light up again.. and even after vaping for two years and finally finding blacknote, I never thought that after 25 years I would ever touch a cigarette again.. but as in life, we all fall back into bad habits from time to time, and I did go back to smoking for a couple of weeks... With much regret.. But then, I noticed a new blend, Quartet which I couldn't believe could ever top my fave; Legato,... As I've been vaping this for more then a week, I couldn't even imagine any good reason to ever touch a cigarette again, it is so deep, and rich and complex,... All of the beauty of what tobacco has to offer, without the price of what one would have to pay with their health.... Today, all I do is vape. Without regret!

Tobacco leaf taste

This quartet tastes as real tobacco leaves, I do not mean cigarette taste, that makes you to feel like you roll your own cigarette and take the first puff, this is the taste who likes raw tobacco leaves taste, incredible flavor, this can beat who rolls his own cigarette instead of buying a pack of cigarette

Amazingly robust

I received a sample of this juice and was blown away. Tastes just like an authentic cigar! so robust!

Quartet is the best ever, by far!

Quartet is, by far, the closest thing to analog!!
For the first time ever (and I have tried many, many juices) I'd rather use my e-cig over analog cigs.
It may seem costly until you try it for a week or so.
Can't say enough about how good Quartet is.... Just purchase it!!

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.
