    Well it’s that exciting time again where we once again turn our attention to our beloved tobacco and tobacco hybrid e-liquids commonly referred to as Naturally Extracted Tobacco’s (“NETS”) and determine which of those e-liquids are our favorites by having you all vote on your favorite NET in each category. Hence the name the ‘NETty awards’.

    Please note that ECF and its admins are not involved in this poll and does not in anyway sponsor this poll. This poll is run by members for the members for entertainment and informational purposes.

    The purpose of these awards are simple and as follows:

    1. Compile votes on a range of categories of NET’s which can be used by individuals to inform them of the most popular NET’s to guide their decision making when placing orders.


    2. To continue to promote and foster a community of NET lovers, particularly given that the market seems to have moved towards high wattage devices and synthetic juices. We need to ensure we continue to preserve and keep our NET community alive and show new enthusiasts where they can find us!


    3. To educate newcomers to vaping who don’t know where to start with tobacco based liquids. This is important as everyone who turns to vaping inevitably is trying to quit cigarettes, cigars or pipes and are often looking for a suitable replacement that imitates the flavor and sensation of cigarettes to maximize their chances of quitting successfully.


    4. To give recognition and credit to those hard working and beleaguered vendors who make wonderful NET’s and who have persevered through this difficult time of oppressive regulation by the US government that is affecting businesses and morale in the E-liquid industry, and in particularly those who make NET juices. We need to encourage them to stick it out by showing them how much we value their efforts and ingenuity in making such fine NETs. Without them we don’t have a place to buy NET juices.
    I have been vaping NET’s now for over 5 years and have enjoyed voting on previous NETty awards run by Scarf-ace, Jerms and Clnire. So I would like to thank those people who put in their time and effort on previous NETTY Awards.


    So without further ado I present to the vaping public and ECF community, the Fourth instalment of the NETty awards!!! The first was held early 2013 by the lovely Scarf-Ace, and with her permission it was held again. The Second was held early in 2014 by our beloved Jerms, and the third by the wonderful Clnire, in June 2015. I am going to oversee, promote and referee the Fourth awards. Many of the rules and categories are copied from previous NETTY awards but there are some NEW CATEGORIES AND NEW RULES.

    The NETty Awards is a poll for NET vapers to vote for their favorite NETs separated into categories. It is unofficial and meant for fun. Anybody is welcome to vote and participate.

    What is a NET? Scarf's first post from the first NETty and the first post of the Natural Tobacco thread will tell you. They can be found here..

    First NETty Awards - The NETty awards!

    You can read the Second NETty Awards here: The Second NETTy Awards!

    And the last instalment being the third NEtty awards here: The THIRD!! NETty Awards!!!

    The Natural Tobaccos thread is the home and beating heart of all things NET related and can be found here:

    Natural Tobaccos - Part Deux


    Please note that in order for your vote to count, the definition of a NET is as follows:

    A commercially available e-juice (or e-liquid) that is wholly or partly composed of flavor made from the maceration/extraction of tobacco. It can be pipe tobacco, cigar tobacco, cigarette tobacco, chew tobacco and roll your own (RYO) tobacco. This includes any e-juices that are composed of other flavorings included with the macerated tobacco extract. Basically, a NET is any liquid that has any flavor derived from the extraction of tobacco. HOWEVER it does NOT include liquids that get most of their tobacco flavor from tobacco absolute, tobacco extract (which is a concentrated mass produced and quite different to macerated tobacco), or synthetic tobacco flavoring (though, there are voting categories for those synthetic based and absolute based e-juices. Read on).



    PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL FOLLOWING VOTING RULES BEFORE VOTING. THERE ARE SOME NEW RULES SO READ CAREFULLY. THERE ARE ALSO SOME NEW CATEGORIES TO VOTE ON THAT REFLECT CHANGING TIMES IN THE VAPING WORLD AND NET VAPING WORLD!


    First I'll list the rules, and then I'll explain the categories. Next post will be an optional ballot to use.

    Rules/voting procedures:

    1. NO RIGGING, SOLICITATION or PERSUASION OF VOTES by spamming individuals (usually by vendors). The last NETty awards was mired in controversy and the results were corrupted due to one opportunistic vendor sending out an email to their subscribers instructing them to vote on their line of juices in the NETty awards and even recommending what juice to vote on. IN THIS NETty awards a vote that is the result of any collusion of votes or THE SOLICITATION OF VOTES by a commercial vendor, or any individual, whether known by fact, or suspected, will be disqualified. This sounds harsh but it’s necessary. Our hard working Clnire who ran the last NETty awards had to deal with such rigging of votes and the outcome was a denigration of the spirit and enthusiasm of the awards and eventual outcome of votes. We are trying to guide people in the right direction with future buying decisions. This is not a vehicle for advertising for opportunistic vendors or their supporters.

    Any disqualifications based on solicitation or collusion of votes will be announced in the posts section of this NETty awards. I will be driven by public feedback so if anyone objects to a decision please let me know IN THE POSTING SECTION firstly, but may message me if they want to discuss something they feel is sensitive or delicate and wish to remain anonymous.

    2. Some vendors have shut shop for various reasons. As a vote for a vendor who have ceased trading can be of no use to any future buying decisions, any vote for a vendor that has ceased business will not be counted. I am aware of one major NET vendor who has ceased trading and that is MYVAPEJUICE.

    However, to give recognition to the efforts of those wonderful vendors who’s juices we have enjoyed over the years who are no longer trading, I will create a new category called ‘FAVORITES FROM VENDORS NOT CURRENTLY TRADING’.

    3. Only genuine NETS including hybrid NETS will be counted in the NET categories. You can put your favorite synthetic NET, or tobacco-in-name-only juices in the special categories at the end of the ballot. Use your discretion and judgment to determine if a juice is a NET and what category it falls into. It's your vote and your choice. While I reserve the right to not count votes for juices that are not NET’s in NET categories on the ballot, I will not penalize votes for putting genuine NET’s in the wrong category. (Ie, if you vote for a cigar NET in the pipe category thinking it is a pipe NET, the vote will stand. After all, maybe that NET plays like the type of tobacco in the category you selected). Though, it might be helpful for the observant consumer relying on the outcome of the NETty awards if you have a brief check of the characteristics of your voted juice if you are unsure, to try to maximize recording votes accurately in categories.

    4. All votes on all categories other than ‘special categories’ must be for commercially available NETs. It can’t be your own home made NET whether or not you are distributing it to friends and the vaping community. In this NETty awards we will have some new categories for Do-It-Yourself NETS to reflect growing trends of individuals making their own NETs! See the voting categories below.


    5. The voting ballot in the next post can be copied & pasted to fill it out. Using the ballot is OPTIONAL, filling all categories and selections is also not mandatory. If not using ballot, please make intended category clear.

    6. You can vote for the same NET in multiple categories, but only once per category.

    7. For each category you can list as many juices as you like but only the top three votes will count. Place these in order of preference, 1st being top favorite. When I count votes, 1st will get three points, 2nd will get two points, and 3rd will get one vote.

    8. You can vote in all categories, some categories, or just one category. You can list one, two, or three separate juices in each category. If you only list one juice it will get the full 3 points.

    9. You can only vote once, and can NOT separate your votes into more than one post. For ease of counting all votes must be in one post. If you vote more than once I will only count only the first post. HOWEVER You can go back and amend your votes as often as you like until the deadline (stated below). This will provide you with the opportunity to further refine your votes as more recollection of your favorite juices comes to you, which can happen a lot when people start reading the votes of others.

    10. You MAY list your reasons and descriptions in your ballot. All other chat is also allowed BUT PLEASE, only on topic and relevant discussion. If there are a lot of posts I will be wading through hundreds at the deadline just to count the votes.

    11. Voting will end Friday, January 6, 2017 at 11:59 pm eastern time in the USA. Yes you get a whole month to vote and amend your votes! The reason for this is simple. With Christmas just around the corner I don’t want to release the results right on or around Christmas. Most people will be on holidays or, if they are Christian, they will be celebrating Christmas with family and friends making the Christmas period a non-peak time for discussion forums. So you have a whole month! There is no need to rush this right? I will be counting the votes on the weekend of January 7-8 and will release them hopefully on that weekend!

    Best Synthetic/non-NET tobacco: can include liquids made with synthetic or lab-made tobacco flavoring. Can also include Tobacco-absolute liquids. Anything goes here so long as it either tastes like it has tobacco in it, or is called a tobacco juice.

    Have fun with this people! Please observe the rules to make counting easier and to keep the NETty awards real and accurate reflections of the market preferences but mostly, just have fun and use it as a celebration of this wonderful smoking cessation tool we have in the electronic cigarette!

    I love Jack Knife but don't know which category it belongs to. Mild smokey flavor without too much of that grassy note that comes from many tobaccos.

    I have not purchased any retail NETs in years since I make my own.

    Best Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Tobacco for maceration/extraction.

    1. American Spirit RYO Organic
    2. American Spirit RYO Perique
    3. Hearth and Home Louisiana Red


    Best Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Pipe Tobacco leaf for maceration/extraction.

    1. Hearth and Home Louisiana Red
    2. Missouri Meershaum Country Gentleman
    3. Milan Tobacco Honey Smoke

    I love a good Perique, don't care for Latakia. The American Spirit Organic is more like a cigarette than the others.

    I know Naturally-Extracted-Tobaccos has a Spirit line, Big Spirit and others, that I believe are extracted American Spirit tobaccos, but since I haven't had them in years, I don't feel I can really vote for them.

    Glad you are doing this Anthony! Hopefully it can help NET lovers find some new NETs to try.

    The Butterfly Ballot in Florida has got nothing on the O.P. :lol: but thanks for getting a NET ballot going.
    The best Vendor NET - Legend by Heather's Heavenly Vapes.
    HHV Shadow, Dragon's Fire and Temptation are also quite good, as was Mavrodaphne from the now defunct MyVapeJuice.

    My favorite extraction - Decatur Black Cherry.
    Peter Stokkebye's 84 Turkish and Home & Hearth Louisiana Red are also good blends for extracting.

    Whatever category these selections belong in is OK by me. Hopefully someone might find their next great flavor in this thread.

    Though I have tried dozens of NETs, I always come back to the basics, and like single varietals, often mixing them. Though I've tried nets from Goodejuice, HHV, and others, I prefer those from Naturally Extracted Tobacco.

    We've had a good start to the fourth NETty awards people! Some great responses already and it's good to see mixture of new and old NETs making people's top three.

    Please make your responses as clear as possible as I may not be able to count in an invalid response. You have to the deadline to amend any responses as I won't be counting votes until after the deadline! Make your vote count people. Trump and Clinton have nothing on this vote !

    Just so you know; the category 'favorite NETs from vendor not currently trading' is a category to select your favourite juice that is from a vendor no longer trading and not the vendor itself.

    Also, the category 'best juice ever' can be NET or non-NET! It can be from 2006 or 2016. Anything goes in this category !

    First a disclaimer; I'm an avid extractor and have been manufacturing NETs and hybrid-NETs for years, I buy very few retail NETs these days so my opinions are somewhat... dated :rolleyes:. Some of my old favorites are no longer available (like NETs from MVJ :(, RBFS, and the old steam distilled aromatics from Ahlusion) so I've excluded those that I know are unavailable. As per the rules I've excluded TA based juice however I've included NETs from HHV which I believe are still produced using a Supercritical CO2 extraction process that yields a potent essential oil similar to TA (although better tasting IMHO).

    Thanks Anthony for your work here.
    I'm working through my favorites.
    In the mean time: what are some of the abbreviations of vendor names above? HoL, GeJ, W2V?

    Hey all,

    Some individuals prefer to use acronyms to refer to cendors for the sake of efficiency and that is perfectly okay. For your reference I provide a list below of what the acronyms stand for.

    W2V - Want2vape
    NET.com - Naturally Extracted Tobaccos.com
    HHV - Heathers Heavenly Vapes
    HOL - House of Liquids
    GEJ - Goodejuice
    MOV - Mountain Oak Vapors
    MVJ - My Vape Juice
    TPR - The Plume Room

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for the couple of clarifications. The HoL and W2V and GEJ are new to me. More to explore.

    I'm glad a DIY category was added to this year's NETty awards. The way things are shaping up on the legislative front (FDA application costs) I'm concerned retail NETs may be notably absent in the post 2018 marketplace.
