Product Description

Details

Prelude by Black Note

Plenty of juice makers will sell you a tobacco flavour. The better ones can come up with a pretty convincing replica of Virginia tobacco. Prelude from Black Note eliquid takes things to a completely different level. This top end vape eliquid brings you the unique naturally sweet flavour of Virginia tobacco grown by the foothills of the Italian Alps, in the sandy soils around Verona.

No, they’re not making this up. Black Note use an elaborate process to turn cured tobacco leaves into a pure essence, which then becomes the flavouring for their vape eliquids. Black Note Prelude tastes like Italian-grown Virginia because it’s made from Italian-grown Virginia. The result is a vape ejuice that perfectly captures the light taste of this classic cigarette tobacco, and does it without needing any artificial additives.

Black Note Prelude is mixed with a balanced 50/50 blend of PG and VG, giving perfect flavour delivery as well as dense velvety clouds. It works equally well in tanks or drippers, and you don’t need sub-ohm gear to get the best from it. Nicotine options run from 0 to 18mg/ml.

FANTASTIC!!!Review by Paul
Overall
This is truly a very fine tobacco tasting E Liquid and the BEST I have come across after trying so many different makes...I have been a life long smoker and turned to vaping some time ago but never found a real tobacco tasting liquid until I discovered Vapour UK and their Fantastic Black Note range. There will Definitely be one here that you will love!!!! (Posted on 14/08/2020)
Tried most of Black Note range, this is my favouriteReview by Alexander
Overall
I've tried most of the Black Note range, Prelude is by far my favourite. It has a sweet and smooth natural tobacco flavour.

Sonata comes in close second, a Prelude type flavour which is a little more 'toasted'. It is very enjoyable and my go-to if Prelude is out of stock.

I've tried Forte which is probably third best.

Quartet and Legato (of which I unfortunately have 6 unopened bottles) I find the hardest to smoke. These two flavours taste of a blend of cigarette and cigar tobacco. They are not sweet and are very smoky. Probably best vaped whilst drinking a peaty whisky.

I've discovered that the different nicotine strengths produce different flavours: anything above 3mg has a significant difference in taste, to the point that I was not enjoying the Prelude 9mg I once purchased. The flavour was harsh and bitter. Maybe it was a bad batch, maybe just the impact of the added nicotine. I've never had any issues vaping other brands at 9mg. Anyway, now I only get the 3mg, or 6mg if 3mg is out of stock.

Due to the amount of Black Note liquids I get through, I recently began smoking the V House by Black Note. At first, I found it bland, slightly less sweet and more bitter than Prelude or Sonata, the bitterness coming from the VG or PG juice. But I have since upgraded my tank to a rebuildable using high quality cotton and homemade coils, and I can confirm the flavour really does shine. Not as flavoursome as Prelude or Sonata, but meets my expectations at a lower price.

One last thing to add about the sweetness of these juices: the coils I used to buy would struggle to reach 1,000 puffs before tasting burnt (caramelisation of the sugars). So that quickly became a coil-a-day habit to support Black Note flavours, the main reason for my switch to RTA. Changing just the cotton is far far cheaper than a new coil every day.

Black Note is by far the best tobacco juice out there, I've realistically tried a dozen brands, most tobacco flavours taste artificial or far too much of biscuit.

Black Note IS the best but unfortunately has become a costly habit. So beware: if you are a tobacco flavour lover, once you try Black Note, you will find it difficult to go back to anything else! (Posted on 18/04/2020)
It's all relative......Review by Steve
Overall
Firstly, for me this is the closest juice to an actual cigarette I've ever vaped.
To put that into context, I've been vaping since 2008 and have used many, many different tobacco flavours.
Secondly, as the title suggests, it really is all relative. I've read some of the previous reviews on 'Prelude' that are at complete odds to my thoughts on it. And I understand that. Personal tase and vaping styles differ. Some people will like, some people won't.
All I can say is, as a MTL vaper using a 1.0 ohm coil in a bog standard RTA tank at 15w, there's no juice I've ever tried that's this close to a real cigarette. I'd also put 'Legato' from 'Black Note' in the same bracket. :)

Awesome Review by Brett
Overall
I've been vaping for several years, & a long term smoker before that. This is the absolute closest taste I've found for a tobacco vape. All of the other 'tobacco' flavoured e juice that I've tried feel oily & taste like chemicals. Black Note have hit the nail on the head for their juices. My favourites are Prelude & Sonata. I've used them in box mods as well as pens, at both ohm & sub-ohm. Works great every time. I also make my own e juice, but I still come back for more Black Note constantly. Its now the ONLY e juice that I purchase. (Posted on 24/07/2018)
The smoker's eliquidReview by Dench
Overall
As close to a real cig as you'll get. Lovely stuff. Shame its always out of stock here as I can't find it anywhere else.


Vapour UK Reply

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Dench much appreciated. At the time it was temporarily out of stock but definitely available and in stock for the previous 18 months :) (Posted on 03/04/2018)
This is the one; no more hunting for the best!Review by Kris
Overall
I won't go on about how much I like Prelude and most of the Blacknote range, I think my heading says how I feel.
However I would like to address some of the negative reviews. Of course everyone has their own opinion and taste must be the most subjective out of all our senses! BUT...
1. Sub ohm vaping this, to me, tasted awful - it just destroyed what this supposed to be.
2. If you've been vaping fruits, cakes, sweets, etc and then coming straight to this then , yes, you're going to think this has no taste. That's what I thought when I first tried it, coming from vaping custard and cookies; "what's all the fuss about? Is this it?! I can't taste anything!".
My advice is to stick with it, try not vape those sickly sweet over the top flavours and let your taste buds recover to enjoy a more subtle but also the closest tobacco experience vaping can bring you right now.


Vapour UK reply

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Kris. Extremely helpful for readers out there.
With regards to the artificial versus natural flavours you have certainly explained this perfectly well in our opinion.

Not worth itReview by Schubert
Overall
Absolutely not worth it given the hype it has created for the way the tobacco is naturally processed, it’s a total waste of money. Was looking to buy the best tobacco flavoured liquid as I’m planning to switch from cigarettes to vaping decided to buy the black note prelude based on the numerous reviews even though it’s priced at a premium compared to other juice, totally disappointed. It’s just gives you a very bad throat hit and no tobacco flavour at all, initially thought my coil’s burnt off hence replaced it with a new one but didn’t make any difference. For record using a Vaporesso Swag kit with a GT4 coil at 0.15 ohm. NOT WORTH IT...


Vapour Reply
Sorry to hear you didn't get on well with Prelude and thanks for taking the time to leave a review Schubert.

Black Note does use real leaves cultivated to produce the flavour.

And yes for sure, Black Note is a higher premium price compared with other tobacco eliquid which are made from artificial flavourings, that's true. (10% - 15% more)

Definitely best vaped with a Mouth to Lung coil / tank set up with standard ohm coils rather than Sub-ohm, especially with Black Note being a VG50% liquid.

Prelude is the airiest and lightest flavour - for a tobacco flavour with more depth we would recommend Sonata. (Posted on 03/02/2018)
Best tabacco flavourReview by Kim
Overall
Absolutely this is best tabacco flavour ever.
I used to smoking Marlboro Red 10+ years
And this is best. Nothing to compare with this. Trust me.
One more thing you have to order this website is fantastic customer service.
I wanna say thanks Catherine who take charge in CS online. She is absolutely great.
If you ask something, You'll know soon why am i buy everytime with vapour.co.uk.

waste of moneyReview by Jean
Overall
The worst liquid I have ever bought. It's like vaping water with zero taste, dumbfounded why other reviews rave about the taste, complete waste of money.



Vapour UK Reply

Very sorry to hear that - we want you to be happy with your purchase and will help find out why that is. An email from customer support is on its way, we can help make suggestions to get the best from the Black Note eliquid and your Vape kit.

Black Note and Prelude in particular (being a Virginia Tobacco most commonly used in real cigarettes) is by far the best selling eliquid week in week out. Many customers now prefer and choose Black Note as there regular all day vape. Of course, that's if you're looking for an eliquid as the best next taste to resemble real tobacco after previously smoking cigarettes. The customer reviews here and reviews from trusted experienced independent review websites definitely suggest Black Note is the best Tobacco eliquid flavour currently produced.

As with any eliquid if you're not achieving the desired and expected results it may be the Vape kit is not set up correctly or in some cases It could simply be its not the right taste or flavour for you personally - though we would agree for sure, not tasting anything is quite bizarre and we will help find out why in this case.

Tastes greatReview by Carole
Overall
I've searched for two years for a bonafide tobacco liquid, and believe me black note is it. It certainly is the bees knees. In my opinion black note is the best. (Posted on 21/08/2017)
Its differentReview by Ian
Overall
I bought this because the menthol e-liquid was not available. I want a good quality product and I am sure this is of that quality, but I cant really taste it. Perhaps its because I have been using menthol for many years now. But I will buy the menthol when you have it in stock. (Posted on 16/06/2017)
Lovely vape but with caution Review by Daniel
Overall
This is a very smooth and pleasant vape, seems to me to be an almost creamy tobacco flavour. However it's definitely not for sub-ohming as I have discovered to my cost. I'm not sure if it's the coils I am using but a 0.5 coil seemed to completely burn up after a couple of hours. I think the 50/50 mixture is a bit much for it so I switched to a 1.5 ohm coil and a lower wattage and it was wonderful. (Posted on 07/02/2017)
Best Tobacco I've TriedReview by John
Overall
Nice tobacco flavour, by far best tobacco I've tried but don't think I would re buy. Will try a different black note flavour once I've used this one. (Posted on 09/01/2017)
Quality in a bottleReview by Shagy
Overall
Being a 20 a day roll up man for too many years, found it hard to find any liquid that could match my needs ! Not now this is awesome, as close to a real fag I think you'll get . Totally recommend this product. (Posted on 21/09/2016)
All Day VapeReview by Keith
Overall
Bought this after buying Adagio which is great, but I wanted something that was more cig like, this fills the bill. Its smooth, tastes of tobacco with not chemical aftertaste. You need to put it in a good tank to get the full taste, I first put it in an iSub tank in that it was OK but I then put it in a Smok tank in this you can get the full smooth taste of the tobacco. I think you need to use a good flavour tank to appreciate the liquid. Now it will be like the old days cigs (Prelude) during the day, cigars (Adagio) at night. These liquids are the best I have tasted in four years of vaping and that includes other naturally extracted tobacco. (Posted on 05/08/2016)
Excellent mild tobaccoReview by Tim
Overall
Didnt get the taste at first using a 2.0 ohm isub coil.

However switched to 0.5 ohm and wow! lovely flavour. (Posted on 26/07/2016)
Absolutely to notchReview by Robosmok
Overall
This liquid is as smooth as you like. If there was a vaping tip available that replicated a real fag tip and you closed your eyes and dragged on this juice, you'd never know its not the real thing. Fab (Posted on 21/07/2016)
Outstanding E liquid Review by Sylvain
Overall
I am not a vaping novice. I am vaping now for more than 5 years on Drippers or tanks Squape, hurricane, petri, Origen etc...The problem to find the good material is easy. But the liquid...For many years I try to find a good tobacco flavor, neutral with out any adds. I try the Virginian from House of liquid, good taste, but your coil is dead on the hour. The black note is outstanding, best real tobacco E liquid, real taste of Virginia. I love the Bread of Heaven from Druid's brew, but this one will be my all day. (Posted on 20/07/2016)
My previous review was wrongReview by gary
Overall
After buying an expensive tank and battery, I have to say that this liquid is totally different. Its absolutely fantastic. tastes just like a real cigarette now (Marlboro comes to mind). So in my case I should not have blamed the liquid when it was my cheap device that affected the experience. I hope my revised review helps people to quit smoking for good. (Posted on 15/06/2016)
Tastes Nothing Like Tobacco or Fags etcReview by gary
Overall
Very disappointed that this liquid (PRELUDE) tastes nothing like tobacco / roll ups / cigarettes / fags etc as all the other reviews suggest?. In my opinion there is just no taste to it whatsoever, its just blank vapour taste and nothing else. I also bought the 'FORTE' flavour as at the same time and that's just the same. I have bought far better tasting tobacco e-liquids in the past and for a lot less money. I have to say that this is one of the worst and most expensive tobacco e-liquids that I have ever bought.. Please be aware before buying this product as I would not recommend it whatsoever. (Posted on 14/04/2016)
