About Black Note
In the 21st century, saxophone has become synonymous with all things cool: jazz, sensuality, richness and complexity. Its creator, Adolphe Sax, an acoustical craftsman endured many hardships, even survived assassination attempts from the instrument-making competitors of his time. A short time after its creation, saxophone had traveled all over the world. Music was irreversibly changed. The new era of electronic musical instruments and synthesizers has witnessed numerous failed attempts at recreating the richness, complexity, overtones and undertones emitted from a finely crafted saxophone in the hands of a master instrumentalist. Similarly, the new age of laboratory made artificial e-liquid flavors and synthetic additives has failed to imitate the rich flavor notes of real tobacco leaves, their aromatic subtleties, their harmony, their very essence. Whether you are seeking to delight your ears or your taste buds, we believe what is natural is invariably superior to anything artificial, that people choose authenticity over imitation. Patiently crafted and cold extracted in small batches using distinct blends of real tobacco leaves, with no artificial flavors, colors, dyes or chemical additives, Black Note is Naturally Extracted Tobacco Vapor Liquid at its finest. Praised for its quality, admired for its originality, and credited with changing the face of vaping culture, Black Note is the manifestation of our love for N.E.T. Vapor Liquid making. Our Mission In a perfect world, no one would smoke. But can we make smoking cigarettes a thing of the past? Perhaps. At Black Note, that is in its purest essence our mission: To help create a smoke free world by providing the most authentic and enjoyable alternative to smoking cigarettes. That is why, we decided not just to make a better e-liquid, but to challenge the status quo by creating a vapor liquid that is remarkably different in every way.

My Rating: â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜…
I`m not a smoker, but I enjoy using the electronic cigarettes and vaping - crazy right?! Great stress reliever without all the dangerous chemicals of cigarettes. I should note I also only smoke the 0% nicotine (even though the lowest in these is 0.3% I still tried it out) and generally go for the flavored stuff. So that`s just a little background on my `smoking habits` and what I like. Black Note sent me their Notebook collection, which is a harmonious collection, composed of eight notes (8 different flavors in small bottles - all 8 are the ones you will find on their product page) as well as 2 full sized liquid vapors: Adagio and Prelude. Since I have all the flavors, here`s a description from the site of each (which is better than me trying to describe them all!): 1) Prelude: Grown in the sandy alluvial plains at the foot of the Italian Alps, Preludeâ€™s Virginia tobacco derives subtle flavors unique to the Verona soils. Once harvested, the leaves are flue-cured to release their natural sugars and resins, resulting in a light, bright taste and aroma. 2) Sonata: Originating in the 17th century, Cavendish uses a unique process of cutting and curing designed to bring out the natural sweetness of the tobacco leaf. Sonata uses only fire-cured dark Virginia tobacco, steamed and cured under pressure to allow the rich, robust flavors to fully develop. 3) Adagio: Adagio offers the uniquely sweet, mildly spicy, aromatic flavor of Havana tobacco, complemented by rich, smoky undertones to create a flavor thatâ€™s recognized around the globe. Grown for centuries in Cubaâ€™s moist, tropical climate, Havana is regarded as one of the worldâ€™s most flavorful tobaccos. 4) Legato: Planted on the sun-drenched slopes of Tuscany, Italian Kentucky tobacco has an American name and an Italian heart. Flue-cured to release the tobacco`s natural resins for a rich-bodied vaping experience, Legato offers a mildly nutty and aromatic flavor with a finish that`s both earthy and smooth. 5) Forte: Cultivated in the fertile volcanic soils around Naples, our burley is ripened by the warm Italian sun before being shade dried and light-air cured. Offering a subtle, slightly sweet flavor, Forte offers the full-bodied flavor and rich vaping experience typical of burley tobacco. 6) Solo: Solo begins with a fine, ultra-smooth Virginia tobacco to provide a rich, flavorful base, then incorporates a layer of natural menthol oils derived through a special extraction process. The result is a refreshing mint flavor without any harsh bite for a bright, cool vaping experience. 7) Cadenza: Sun-cured, highly aromatic and mildly spicy, basma tobacco is considered by some tobacco experts to be the finest aromatic tobacco in the world. Grown exclusively in the mountainous area of Northeastern Greece known as Xanthi, basma has earned a reputation as the â€œking of tobaccos.â€ 8) Bravura: Air-cured and naturally fermented, Bravura begins with the smooth, rich undertones of the finest red burley, using a centuries-old process to achieve deep, earthy notes with a subtle hints of fruit. The result is a complex, full-bodied vaping experience reminiscent of the world`s premium tobaccos. What I love about this company is the `classy` feel to it. Most are just regular old vaping and e-cig stores - but this one just has a nice quality feel to it, which goes hand and hand with their quality products. I like that they stick with their `music` type theme throughout by the way they name their products. Their liquids do not contain any artificial flavors, colors, dyes or chemical additives. So what you are tasting is the natural flavoring which is a huge plus. Being someone who is used to the sweet and flavored stuff this was a bit different for me, but much to my surprise I enjoyed the flavors - or should I say am enjoying the flavors. The quality of the liquids are unlike others I have tried. My husband used to be a smoker several years ago so I let him give it a try to get his thoughts and he thought it was a good quality too - so both non-smoker and ex-smoker enjoy these to give some perspective. Overall this was a great experience with a quality product. Whether you`re looking for a cigarette alternative or trying to quit, finding the right product is step one. If you`re not sure which flavor to try I highly recommend "The Notebook" package like I received to try all their flavors before purchasing the larger ones.
