The Flavourist goes on to discover the Black Note productions. A US brand (California) that has long been on the world stage as a specialized manufacturer of N.E.T.. Of this type of tobacco extraction we have already had the opportunity to speak in The Flavorist, indicating also what are the substantial differences compared to the italian productions.

Today we review Legato, an extract of Tuscan flue-cured Kentucky. Let me overlook some aspects of product packaging, as this is identical to other Black Note products on the same line as already reviewed on The Flavourist. Find out by using the “search” field on our site. I just want to point out that the product is “tpd Ready” and … particularly eye-catching.
Description of the manufacturer:
Enjoy the earthy and nutty flavor of real Italian Kentucky tobacco, flue-cured to release the plant’s natural resins. This American tobacco blend is grown in Tuscany and features an undeniably earthy flair. Avail.
The olfactory test provides very light perceptive ideas. A lot of concentration and isolation is needed to perceive the lightness of these soft tones of tobacco. But the Kentucky fragrance, albeit weak, is pleasantly distinct.
After a first dripping tasting I decided to try a Bellus set in dualcoil. Maybe a risky choice? The first mouthful confirms the “aromatic versatility” of this excellent extraction (N.E.T.) and the choice of a tank atomizer (even in dualcoil) remakes me immediately with a soft and elegant tasting. Maybe a better result than a dripping atom. It’s enough to limit the spatiality and take care not to exaggerate with the power. Indulge in a slow vape and deep breaths, leaving emeregere mineral notes, acidic and earthy of this Kentucky extracted from Black Note. Bonded is particularly soft and its taste is not particularly intense.
I admit that in my expectations as a reviewer, just to speak of Kentucky (also Italian), I imagine a full-bodied cigar with deep, enchanting notes. Tied up approaches instead to a Kentucky blend, composed of various parts of this plant, from the perceived, lovable and soft. A very light and pleasant fumigation from which emerge, in addition to plant acidic notes, slight hints in assonance with hazelnut. The perceived is slightly creamy and just this aspect contributes to ingesting the whip. The aromatic persistence is not very intense, but is fueled by an inevitable compulsivity from which I feel involved in the search for aroma. At the initial stages of the mouthful, the sour glitter is accompanied by a nice earthy pizzicor that ticks us into tasting to the body fragrance inherent in the variety of Kentucky tobacco. By exhaling slowly it will be easier to appreciate the assonance with hazelnut.
Legato’s aromatic cleansing reveals the great Black Note extraction invoice. The “flue-cured” character is light and this makes the market slice to which these Black Note extracts are dedicated. Even after a few ml of a mild sweat, a mild “dough” harmonizes the pleasant terrestrial veils worthy of this tobacco. This refined character, however, leaves us a little dissatisfied.
Pro: Elegant, flue-cured Kentucky for a wide audience.
Cons: Perhaps disappointing for the most experienced, for lovers of strong estracts where the tobacco expression shows raw and uncompromising.
