Product Description


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 eliquid brings you the unique 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 liquids. Black Note Prelude tastes like Italian-grown Virginia because it’s made from Italian-grown Virginia. The result is a juice 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.

• 1x 10ml bottle or 30ml (3x 10ml bottles)
• Zero nicotine strength is 1x 30ml bottle
• 50% PG and 50% VG – refined taste and dense vapour
• Lab tested and certified free from diacetyl and AP
• Made in Italy
• Child proof cap

Awesome Review by Brett
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
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.

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
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.

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
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...

Sorry to hear you didn't get on well with Prelude and thanks for taking the time to leave a review - its certainly rare someone wouldn't get on with Black Note in paritcular Predlude as the reviews state. 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)

waste of moneyReview by Jean
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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)
Hits all the notesReview by JT
Lovely vape. Shame about the 50/50 ratio. Would like it to be more VG. This is a perfect vape for those wanting a realistic smoke taste for weak moments - nights out drinking for example. (Posted on 31/03/2016)
It's a fag in a bottle!!!Review by @m
Wow. This is the real fag flavour I have chased since 2008. All above reviews spot on. Iain and Lew hit the nail on the head. If your after a pure lighter real tobacco vape. It's here.

Prelude--- takes about ten puffs to adjust after sweet vapes or tobacco+flavour mixes (manabush) then it hits you. This is a fag. A lovely fag. I liked rolled lighter Virginia tobaccos and this is it. Well done black note, well done Nothing, absolutely nothing is as close as this. If you have just booted the smokes or are still chasing the fag. Pay up and enjoy. Worth every penny! (Posted on 05/03/2016)
ExcellentReview by Liam
An extremely high quality E- Liquid. I love the aftertaste I get from this it's a bit like the smell you get when you open a fresh pack of cigarettes. This is a great liquid to try if you've recently given up smoking or if you just love tobacco flavour. (Posted on 23/02/2016)
