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-EyeHitting 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 SunFirst 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 FireSecond 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 EarthFoundation 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 ApparentDelivering 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 DiscoveryStored 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 RareScarcity 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 GeniusRetaining 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 EditionOne-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.
The Creme de la Creme
For me, this is the Rolls-Royce Phantom Serenity of e-liquids. Not a daily driver, but when I want to chill, this is it. Nothing else even comes close. This flavor is what vaping was created for. Tobacco smoking of the future, perfected.
Bought the instrumenthol and received a sample of Quartet. This is the taste I am looking for. Will get some 30ml's to re-stock. Well done !!!
A darker and stronger taste
I finally got around to trying the 10oz sample of Quartet that Black Note so graciously sent me with my Prelude order. The Quartet has a richer and stronger taste than the Prelude. I LOVED it! I never thought I would stray from my Prelude but I will definitely be ordering the Quartet on my next order!
Smokey and strong ! I love this 'cigar like' flavor with a glass of Merlot , after a good meal . I think this one will be my liquid to step down from 12 mg to 6 mg . Thank y'all so much for the surprise bottle of this in my last few orders, it has grown on me ! At first it was a bit strong & I mixed a few drops of this blackberry flavor that was way too much & together they reminded me of a blackberry Swisher Sweet ... LOL ... Honestly , this Quartet is way better than a Swisher Sweet .
Rich and Smoky
I've been a faithful vaper of Solo for a bit before I tried this, and I wanted to give this a try for a change. I have to say this is another winner for me. It's peppery and smoky and rather like a cigar or pipe tobacco than a cigarette. (Be careful with your nicotine percentage as this can be a bit strong at higher levels.) Bit more fancy than I was vaping, and I love that. Well done, Blacknote!
Perfectly balanced taste
This is my favorite Black Note e-liquid. It is the perfect blend of tobacco flavors!
My favorite vape bar.none. Clean and flavorful.
Excellent Latakia flavor
This is my first ever e-juice. I like it, I just had to adjust to a slight sweet taste. I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys latakia tobacco.
Quartet kicks it!
I've been a regular customer for a while having tasted just about all of them before settling on a few which now, I've been repeat ordering. The last time they included a small bottle of Quartet gratis. I love all the flavors I've tried at Black Note. They truly have helped me quit smoking. I love the taste of tobacco so I expect to be vaping Black Note quite a while. No doubt the line is higher-end e-juice and the one I currently adore the most is indeed Quartet. It seems the perfect vape for me, an ex smoker. It just truly tastes the most like a real cigarette...and a pleasurable one at that!
Quartet bold great
Great new flavor for me! Received sample with regular order and also combined with Solo! Great taste. Thank you!
This is most certainly a Quartet.
Smooth yet smoky. Complex and peppery. This is what I would consider a treat. This is an after dinner vape either with Colombian coffee or a VSOP congac. I choose to pair it with Patron as the complex flavors of both enhance each other. This is not my all day vape. That would be Sonata or Legato. But this should definitely be in your repertoire of Black Note e-liquids. I was sent a sample of this with an order and I will be ordering a 30ml bottle of this. Let me just say that Black Note has the best customer service. Keep up the good work.
I like the peppery taste, but
I could have had a new favorite flavor. I really like the boldness of this juice, with it's peppery flavor, but the finish had a weird burnt taste to me. I though maybe my coil was fried, but when I change out me juice it was fine. Forte is still my favorite.
I received a sample of Quartet along with my usual order and I was really impresses with the flavor. One of my favorites.
Amazing tobacco ejuice!
This one is really special. Stands out from the other Black Note`s juices ( which are all excellent by the way) with its robust tobacco smoked woody taste. Bring this one out on special occasions. Occasions who are happening more and more frequently i must say :)
Absolutely beautiful. If the gods smoke, then this must be it!
Tried a some other Black Note tobacco's but this is my absolute favorite. So complex, herbs, smokiness, tobacco and no sweetness at all. Which I hate. Just ordered some more bottles to steep and smoke. Fantastic. Now try some with less nicotine.
Quartet is absolutely delicious! I can't get enough of it. Thanks a million. Best ejuice I have ever tried.
Quartet is out of this world delicious!!!! Can not get enough of it. I go to bed thinking about it and wake up thinking about it. It is that good. Thanks a million!!!!!
Best Vape I've ever tried
A Friend gave me a 30 ML bottle of Latakia Tobacco Blend to try. I must say I was a bit hesitant but after the first few minutes I was hooked. I must admit it is the "Best" E Juice out there. I'm hooked on the smoothness and smoky blend. For me Black Note is #1
This is my first review of black note products. I've been vaping now for 8 months. I only am interested in tobacco flavors, I. guess because I was a heavy smoker for thirty years. When I quit smoking, I set out on a journey to find the the absolute best tobacco flavored e juice on the market. When I heard of black note being top rated, I naturally had to give you guys a try, and thank God I did. I started out with your notebook of sample flavors, and I fell in love with Legato. But after reading about Quartet I had to try it next and I honestly felt like I hit the lottery. My journey has finally ended. Quartet is my new all day vape.
Great With After Dinner Coffee
One of my favorites. Big, strong and honest flavor. No artificial aftertaste. Vapes well in my TC tank at low temps. Goes easy on my equipment so that offsets the extra cost for me.
