Tips for Getting the Best Flavor from Your ELiquid

Vaping Tips: Get the Best Flavor from Your E-Liquid

One of the major benefits of switching to vaping is enjoying the multitude of flavors available to you, but what do you do when the flavor just doesn’t seem to come through strongly enough?

There are many possible causes for a muted or unimpressive flavor, but most of them can be solved with either some basic changes or some upgrades to your hardware.

Here are some vaping tips and tricks for maximizing the flavor from your e-liquid:

1) Experiment with Your Settings

If you’re using a variable voltage or variable wattage (VV/VW) device, adjusting your settings is the easiest way to maximize your flavor. Each e-liquid has a “sweet spot” in terms of wattage, but it can vary greatly, so the best advice is to experiment with different options until you find the best flavor. Generally speaking, too high a wattage will have a detrimental effect on the flavor, but setting it too low will notably impact vapor production; it’s all about striking a balance.

2) Clean Your Atomizer

If remnants of the last e-liquid you vaped are gunking up your wick (particularly common with darker-colored flavors), it will detract from the flavor you’re currently vaping. The best advice here (for clearomizers and tanks) is to give you atomizer and wick a clean whenever you change e-liquids, but realistically you probably aren’t going to do that. So it’s more practical to say you should clean your atomizers after a week or so of use. There are plenty of guides online giving step-by-step instructions, but in most cases it’s pretty straightforward: take your atomizer apart and give it a good wash in warm water.

3) Switch to Rebuilding

Every different type of atomizer will produce varying levels of flavor – for example, a bottom-coil clearomizer tends to be better for flavor than a top-coil one – but generally speaking the best flavor tends to come from rebuildable atomizers. This means getting a bit more technical – wrapping your own coils, attaching them to the posts and threading the wick through – but if you’re a true flavor-chaser it’s well worth the effort. The rabbit-hole gets deeper too, with different builds producing different levels of flavor.

4) Use a Cotton Wick

If you’re rebuilding, you pretty much get a free choice of wick, but most vapers opt for cotton because it wicks well, it’s easy to work with, cheap and produces near-unbeatable flavor. Get some 100 percent cotton balls (or any type of cotton product with 100 percent, untreated cotton), boil them in some water (to remove any traces of residue from the manufacturing process) and let them dry out before using. Using cotton also makes it easier to change wick whenever you change flavor. You can even re-wick pre-built coils with cotton to improve the flavor. 

5) Choose Your Device Carefully

Although switching to any rebuildable atomizer will boost your flavor, they aren’t all created equally. One of the factors that can aid with flavor is the positioning of the air-holes: on the Magma – one of the most widely-recommended rebuildables for flavor – the air-holes are positioned directly underneath the coils, in many ways the ideal position for maximum flavor. Other plus-points for flavor are a dome-shaped top cap and a nice deep juice well. Two other widely-recommended rebuildable atomizers for flavor are the Plume Veil and the Freakshow, but if you opt for anything with air-holes in the right place, a dome top cap and deep juice wells you’ll notably improve the flavor you get from your juice. 

6) Shake Before You Vape

Giving your e-liquid a shake before you drip or fill up ensures that all of the ingredients – including the flavorings – have time to mix evenly throughout your e-liquid before you start to vape. Since e-liquid is composed of many different ingredients – with different weights – some will preferentially sink to the bottom, so shaking it ensures you get all of the flavoring alongside the PG, VG and nicotine.

7) Store Your E-Liquid Properly

Improper liquid storage – particularly over the long term – may mean some of the flavorings in the e-liquid end up degrading and ruining the taste of the juice. The best advice is to keep your e-liquid in a cool, dark place (out of reach of children and pets!) to minimize any degradation. Technically it’s better to keep things air-tight, but if you’re steeping this might not be possible, so the best advice is to avoid steeping with the cap off for longer than necessary – give your liquid a taste every few days and if the harsh overtones have rounded off, replace the cap.

8) Change Your Flavors

The nature of how we perceive taste and smell means that e-liquid flavors can become less noticeable if you vape them for a long time. Switching your flavors regularly is the best advice to combat against this: even if it’s your favorite juice, have some time away from it and it’ll be more enjoyable when you go back to it.

9) Maximize the Surface Area of Your Coils

Although – as mentioned earlier – there is a lot to consider in terms of the best types of coil to build for maximum flavor, a simple, catch-all tip is to boost the surface area of your coil where possible. In short, the more of your coil that’s making contact with your wick and juice, the more e-liquid that gets vaporized and the more flavor you get out of each puff. The easiest way to do this is to use a lower-gauge (i.e. fatter) wire and more wraps, but you can also try out twisted coils or even Clapton coils to boost the surface area even more.

10) Reduce Your Airflow

While many vapers up their airflow for bigger clouds, the reason this happens is essentially that you’re mixing air in with your vapor, and this understandably reduces the flavor. Either switch to an atomizer with less airflow or (if you have an adjustable airflow device) reduce the airflow on your atomizer. You’ll lose out on a bit of vapor, but you’ll recoup the losses in improved flavor.

Conclusion – Taste is Subjective

These vaping tips should help you get the most out of your e-liquid flavors, but it’s important to remember that taste is ultimately a subjective experience, and you might find that something different works better for you. The best catch-all advice is to experiment: try out different devices, different wick setups, different settings and different steeping methods (or none at all) and find what works for you. And of course, it could just be that you need to buy a better, more flavorful e-liquid! Find more tips for vaping in our blog!

    Gia, thanks for the great advice. All of it good. I have found the “switching your flavors up” to be very helpful. If I vape a certain flavor for too long, it seems to lose its uniqueness. So I jump over to another flavor for a while. After a season I can come back to it, and it tastes like it should. I haven’t got into rebuilding just yet. Might have to do some research into it, to see what it is all about.

    Thanks again for all the great ideas.

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.
