Juice Review: Quartet - A Latakia Blend by Black Note

A friend of mine who runs a vapeshop (and webshop) told me yesterday that he was getting some amazing e-liquid. Supposed to be the best tobacco e-juice in the world, he said. Not surprisingly, he was talking about Black Note. He wasn't aware that I had reviewed the Notebook a while ago, but anyway I told him I agreed. Of course I haven't tasted all the tobacco juices in the world but the Black Note range is indeed some of the best ones I have tasted.

So when Black Note contacted me and asked if I wanted to do a review of their new limited edition Quartet I was thrilled. Only problem was that they had my old address so it ended with something like a month or so with painful waiting and checking the mail before it finally arrived. But good things come to those who wait, right?

Quartet - A Latakia Blend
Tested on Hellfire Raptor (0.5 ohm dual coil @ 20-50 watts)
Quartet incorporates the four elements of sun, fire, earth and air to produce a rich, intense smoky-peppery tobacco. The blend embraces the Syrian Latakia process of sun-curing the tobacco, then smoke-curing over controlled fires of Valonia oak, Aleppo pine, Lebanon cedar, Greek juniper and indigenous aromatic herbs. The result is a powerfully distinct symphonic delight for the senses.
This is Black Notes own description of their Quartet. You can even read the full story on how it was developed and made on their web-page, and this isn't your everyday tobacco steep as you can see. The tobacco used to create it has been aged for 8 years (!). I guess this might be one of the reasons that the Quartet limited edition is priced at $39 for 30ml. Pretty expensive juice in other words, so the question is... is it worth it?

The answer, in my opinion is: YES! And I did not accidentally hit caps lock there. The smokiness of the juice is the first thing that hits you when you open the bottle and smell this juice, and it is the key flavour that remains all the time while you vape it. I'm actually having quite a hard time describing all the other flavours in there, cause this juice is pretty complex. It's got some sweetness and you get the feeling there is indeed quite a symphony of different flavours playing in your mouth, herbs, tobacco and different kinds of smoky flavours. As I said, quite hard to describe, so I can only recommend you try it yourself. It is one of the most authentic tobacco juices I have tried so far. Indeed a pretty expensive juice, but it's worth every penny. If you've tried some of the other Black Note juices and liked them, you are definitely going to love this one.

Thanks a lot to Black Note for sending me this juice for review. And please don't hesitate to send me any new creation you come up with... so far they only keep getting better and better. Thanks :)
