Black Note

Product Description


Sonata by Black Note

If you’re a real tobacco aficionado it can be difficult finding the right vape. There are plenty of juices aimed at recreating the taste of popular cigarettes, but there’s much more to tobacco than that. Help is on its way from California though, in the shape of Sonata from premium eliquid maker Black Note. Sonata brings you the classic taste of Cavendish tobacco, a long-time favourite with pipe smokers.

Black Note specialise in tobacco flavours and they don’t compromise on quality. All their liquids are based on natural extracts obtained from selected tobacco leaves. For Sonata, Black Note begin with dark ripe Virginia tobacco, which is treated to a centuries-old curing process, precisely primed, oak barrel-cured, and steamed to brilliant intensity. This creates natural sugars in the leaf and develops the characteristic sweet, robust taste of a Cavendish blend. Finally the leaves are steeped, before Black Note’s cold extraction process collects the concentrated pure flavour essence.

Black Note Sonata’s base liquid is a 50/50 mix of PG and VG, so it works well in both tanks and drippers and gives great flavour reproduction.

• 1x 10ml bottle or 30ml (3x 10ml bottles)
• Zero nicotine strength is 1x 30ml glass bottle with pipette dripper
• Packaged in a Black Note presentation tube
• 50% PG and 50% VG
• Lab tested, certified free from diacetyl and AP

Very Expensive a bit disappointed Review by Karen
I was really looking forward to this ejuice and experiencing a good natural tobacco flavour! I didn’t get much flavour at all I will try other kinds in this range but this one isn’t for me!! (Posted on 13/06/2018)
Excellent vape juice love it. Review by Adam
5 stars. Highly recommended it. For me it's subtle but unmistakable tobacco flavour that's complimented by an almost honey like sweetness coming from the tobacco or curing process. And a wonderful nutty taste. Nothing is out of place with sonata. It's spot on deliciousness. When I'm vaping it though I can taste the tobacco others in the room cannot smell it which is a huge bonus imo. This is better than any other tobacco vape I have tried. No hesitation in recommending it just remember it's vaping not smoking so won't be like a cigarette. It's a hundred times better than any cigarette and doesn't leave you stinky (Posted on 08/04/2018)
A very pleasant surprise!Review by Michael
First thing to say is that whilst this review pertains to Sonata specifically as it's the one I'm currently using, I would write pretty much the same thing for the whole line, having now sampled them.

I was at first, as I'm sure many who have tried this line have been, rather skeptical of what I was going to find after having given up on anything labelled as a "tobacco" ejuice. But it has to be said, Black Note have absolutely nailed it in what they've tried to achieve here!

Sonata is sweet & nutty with a great tobacco base & even sub-ohmimg 12mg on a 0.4 (Wismec RX Gen 3) at around 48-50 watts it remains incredibly smooth, especially noteworthy given that it's a 50/50 liquid.

Whether you've been searching for a worthy tobacco flavour or just feel like giving one a shot as a change of pace from all the pastries, cakes & fruits then you've found the one you want right here!

And a big thanks to for their exemplary service! (Posted on 14/02/2018)
Most excellent...Review by Beachcomberbean
After fifty years of smoking Old Holborn in vast quantities I have finally gone 16 days without a cigarette thanks to Vapour UK and Black Note. Sonata is definitely my favourite...although Prelude mixed with Quartet is also highly desirable. All the Black Note range are is the service from Vapour UK. Order before 3pm Monday to Friday and you have next day delivery.
I tried eliquid after eliquid...and found that most left a most unpleasant aftertaste and smelt like rancid socks. Black Note is pure and unadulterated quality. Just flavour. Smoke it in a closed room and there is no smell...thanks to the natural ingredients, no chemicals...and no artificial flavourings. Do yourself a huge favour...and try these eliquids if you really want to give up smoking...or if you simply want to vape something that is truly enjoyable and satisfying...
Cheers... (Posted on 12/02/2018)
Best NET Tobacco out thereReview by Tim
This is great. As per the prelude review, i think the flavour really comes sub ohm vaping.

Stronger than prelude but with that nice sweetness, more prevalent when mouth to lung vaping vs direct inhale. Best juice out there, wish it wasnt so pricey :( (Posted on 26/07/2016)
My search is over!Review by Ali
I never normally write reviews (probably because all tobacco flavours previously have tasted of toilet cleaner!) but with Black Note I feel my search for a real tobacco flavour is over!

Although Sonata tastes a little more cigar-like than cigarettes to me, it is still gorgeous, and in a totally different league to any other tobacco e liquids I have tried to date (which have been a lot, and have cost me a small fortune!). I may try the Prelude flavour next as I think that sounds more cigarette-like from the descriptions.

Right from the get-go this product screams quality. The packaging alone is quite beautiful. And the liquid itself is even more so (I was worried it may have been a let down, but it most certainly was not!).

NET (naturally extracted tobaccos) are definitely worth the extra money. You can really taste the natural tobacco leaves, and although the Black Note range seems very expensive, you actually get a very large 30ml glass bottle, with pipette, so it works out to be very reasonable, especially taking in to account the sheer quality of the liquid.

I am going to pleasurably make my way through each of the 8 flavours there are available, except maybe the menthol one (though even that is supposed to be lovely with a real mint taste).

And one more thing, with every day that I vape this stuff, it seems to get smoother and tastier, with no steeping at all.

Can I also say a very big thank you to Vapour UK for stocking this delicious e liquid (please don't ever stop!), and also thanks for mega quick delivery (next morning after ordering at 2pm!).

Thank you!

Another keeper!!! Another quality Black Note juiceReview by @m
I see above Paul gets on well with sub-ohm set up and this just shows the quality of this juice. You can see it in the bottle and it screams quality.

I'm using cool-fire 4 (class) low watts set on 10 tonight as I'm writing this. I think It was 11-14w last night, with my old aspire nautilus. For me very good tanks. Flavour gorgeous whatever I'm Vaping. Used Triton 2 for prelude -- gorgeous and defiantly an improved tank. Top fill and they don't leak at all, not like all the reviews I read. It's like anything if your using good kit you've got to get it set up right. I would think they leak if you under tighten them and don't check that your not undoing them when your filling after undoing the top cap.

So in comparison to prelude, Sonata is another amazing Virginia tobacco. Which is my choice of rolling tobacco. It tastes of tobacco. Amazing that! But it tastes of the smell of when you open the pouch and smell that sweet tobacco. Which for me was always a treat to smell and in reality far better than tobacco actually tasted.

It's slightly darker in flavour than the prelude because it has a darker tobacco base, it is very noticeably different but just slightly heavier/darker. Very, very nice indeed. It is quite stunning really in that it is just like smoking a good quality tobacco. A cigarette, a good cigarette, Its a lovely tobacco. Probably better than any cigarette I have smoked. I was a very heavy smoker and I'm using 12mg which I find perfect in all juices at the moment. I would like to drop to 6mg but the throat hit changes and i can't change that yet. I will try 6mg at some point, just not yet.

It has an Immense throat hit, not harsh but strong, tasty, fulfilling and not dry at all. A stunning taste. The more you vape over the days the more the flavour develops. I suppose it's like trying new quality wines. The taste develops and you develop your taste over time and through the bottle.

I think there all pre-steeped as with all real quality juices that are ready to vape from opening. But as in another black note review its dry on the exhale. Which is real to tobacco. The throat hit can be fine tuned with change of wattage and how you pull, speed and strength, as well as its taste. I have had two newbie vapers shocked that it is a smoking experience. One has not returned to his fags yet, the other one was a lighter smoker and is just stuck on sweet vapes. For people who still love tobacco or vape and smoke buy and try. You will be impressed. I am, everyone is, totally.

If your not I will take them of your hands! For me it's perfect for the morning coffee/tea and smoke/vape which was my most enjoyable smoke of the day. Now it is again. It could quite easily be an ADV but as I've got so many good vapes on the go (5) it's hard not to pick up the others to remind me I love other flavour juices as well. All from Tell Dom what u like and he will pull a recommendation out for you. I can't wait to Taste his latest as he has hit each juice bang on up to now.

So these two black note Virginia tobaccos really do provide a smoking vape experience with prelude the lighter Virginia and Sonata the darker, only slightly but noticeably. Black note have won me over. I thought I wanted away from tobacco. Not now I love it again. I won't ever miss fags though. These are fags. Why would I possibly smoke again with these. Worth every penny, easily.

By trying both the prelude and sonata Im definitely going to have to invest in the multipack just so I can taste the whole range. I'm sure I won't be disappointed at all. Thanks black note and (Posted on 09/03/2016)
ExcellentReview by Liam
An extremely high quality E- Liquid. The perfect combination of rich tobacco flavour with a naturally sweet aftertaste. A great juice to try if you've just given up smoking or if you just love tobacco flavour. (Posted on 23/02/2016)
Robust tobacco taste with a sweet aftertasteReview by Paul
Another winner from Black Note in my humble opinion. Really tight tobacco flavour with a sweetish following. Certainly no bitter aftertaste so often found with other e-Juice brands.

I vape on a sub-ohm setup of an Eleaf iStick 100W box with the Uwell Crown tank and 0.5 ohm coil. I've tried literally 10's of different tobacco flavoured liquids trying to find a good sub-ohm combination. I've now found it. Black Note is my brand of choice. I don't have any new 0.25 coils at the moment to test this juice with (currently on order). I'll try it out when they arrive and post a follow up.

Just as a side note. I have only found it difficult to find good tobacco flavours for the sub-ohm setup. Fruits and other flavours taste fine. (Posted on 28/01/2016)
