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.

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.

Legato and Quartet!!!

As a smoker of camel light cigarettes for 13 years, I have quit cigarettes all together for 4 months now. I've tried all of Black Notes flavors except the menthol (solo) and I must say these liquids are impressive. Legato and Quartet and by far my favorite. Quartet has (to me) this a burning cedar or campfire flavor. It's better than it sounds and Legato has an ultra light full flavored cigarette taste. These two are the tastes for me. I even mix them sometimes and I'm still impressed. Black note is the real deal.

Enjoy and Get Real

I love this juice!

I got the big bottle of this since it didn't come with the 4 pack sampler. It is awesome! It's peppery and slightly sweet to me. I love all of the different juices, but this one might be my favorite. I just ordered a second bottle.

Smokey, Spicy, Rich

I felt compelled to write a review after trying this extract. I first tried black note starting with forte, because I was under the impression it had a strong flavor. Forte does have a nice flavor, but it was not what I had expected. Quartet filled in the gaps I was looking for with a bold smokey spice and a rich tobacco flavor. This is exactly what I was looking for, and I plan to order more when I need to refill.

For the tough and not-so-sweet :)

I could vape this for the rest of my life and never tire of it. Not for everyone; I love the dry, peppery and spicy taste. No other liquid compares to this. Not sweet, nice and tough with that smokiness but still smooth (at least with my 3mg level). If you're a black coffee kind of person and miss real tobacco taste, this is your heaven in a bottle.

Very Complex

I ordered the notebook and a 30ml of Quartet. The pepper taste was prominent to me. Not overpowering. I could easily see this as I mixer to the 2x 30ml bottles of Forte I just ordered to spice it up from time to time. Thanks Black Note. Nice work.

I thought I was looking for a more rugged taste but found this to not be to my liking. I prefer a blend with sweet and smokey. It is ok just not for me

A must have. You wont be disappointed.

The Quartet was great. It has a great flavor and is definitely one of my absolute favorites. The prelude is another favorite of mine.

Customers that have never tried it, should try it.

The Quartet has a nice taste. It didn't necessarily have a peppery taste as the website said it did but overall I loved it. This product is too expensive

One of a kind

I've written about Quartet before. How delicious, smokey, spicy it is...Today I'd like to write about just how rare it is!!! This is Syrian Latakia not Cypriot. Due to the conflict in Syria it is simply not being produced...nada...nunca...zilch!!! That the good folks at Black Note had the prescience to purchase a batch is nothing short of AMAZING!!! Do yourself a favor and try this rare, one of a kind Latakia e-juice before it's gone.

True Latakia taste

This juice actually tastes and smells like Latakia, it could be a bit stronger, but the fact that this flavor was able to be made into a juice at all is amazing enough.

different strokes for different smokes

I suppose its a matter of taste but I prefer the Sonata For me Quartet was a little to peppery. It is surely a high quality product just not my cup of tea. I still have some left and I will try it again to see if my tase has changed

This is a great vape as all black note products are. I love them and have spent a lot of money buying them. Well worth it. However, I couldn't really tell the difference between this and legato. So I will probably stick to legato since it's cheaper. Not dis-satisfied at all. It is great, but legato is just as great and a little cheaper

Somewhat disappointing. Really looked forward to the prospect of again enjoying Latakia but, it wasn't there. Not worth the premium $ for something that tastes no different than V2 Red. I do like the sense of humor and fast shipping.

Smooth Rich flavor

I read the reviews and took a chance not having sampled Quartet and I am so glad I did, well worth the extra, I enjoy this with Cognac, so bold smooth and creamy. It has become my favorite after dinner vape.

Better than a cigarette

I'm an ex-smoker and only vape BlackNote (Forte and Prelude). Quartet is my new favorite - tastes like a quality turkish blend cigarette. The best ever.

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.
