The Gold Leaf Virginia Tobacco does that, It's a smooth, easy flavoursome vape that isn't expensive and I never get tired of it.

This flavour is definitely my favourite one and has been my everyday go-to juice for the last six-seven months. It is slightly more expensive than other brands you can purchase, but worth every penny. Highly recommended, my only regret is not discovering it earlier…" - Ron H

5. Black Note Cigarette

Black Note Cigarette

This American blend contains a mix of Virginia, Burley and Turkish leaf tobacco that’s been fermented and aged in oak barrels.

Customer Rating: 4.67 / 5

"Yeah, the name is very fitting. Strong and probably the closest flavour to a cigarette I have found so far. Unfortunately, I have been off the cancer sticks for some time and the flavour just does not appeal to me. However, will still give it a 5-star rating because they nailed the flavour. This flavour will appeal for people who want to take up vaping but still used to the flavour of a cigarette." - Peter

Staff Rating: 4 / 5

The Cigarette Blend is not for everyone, while most Black Note real tobacco blends are known for their smooth and refined flavour, this Cigarette Blend is certainly not. The reason it makes our top 5 is to show you how good Black Note truly are. They managed to get the true flavour of a cigarette into an e-liquid bottle. And while that "true" taste isn't necessarily what most smokers are looking for after leaving cigarettes behind for those that need that familiar introduction to vaping this one will help with the transition!

Available in:

  • Bottle Size: 30ml
  • PG/VG Ratio: 50%/50%
  • Nicotine Strength: 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg
