today I finally got a package from you or at least from Sugiharta - which was not what I ordered - I ordered 6 cartons of Djarium Blacks ( the Indonesian brand- with clove pieces in the tobacco) and got 3 cartons of the American Brand (Export Quality) I sent $160.00 (6 cartons at $16.35 ea) = 98.10 plus $62.35 for shipping - and got 3 cartons (@ $16.35 ea) = $49.05 Should I send these back - and get what I ordered - or are you willing to make this right? please tell me what I should do at this point - I have been waiting since December for my cigarettes - and these are the same as the ones I can get over the counter here in the USA - which plainly state on the package are harmful to your health and could cause lip cancer - I have been smoking the original brand (with pieces of clove in the tobacco) for over 30 years and in all that time - every chest x-ray I have had taken - the technician always says - "You don't smoke do you...." and I always reply - only a pack a day - to which he says - "You would never know it from your x-rays - " But the last x-ray I had taken - after you started selling this American brand (Export brand) the x-ray tech said - I see you smoke..... so there is something wrong with these American made cigarettes - and that is why I am ordering them off the internet from you - so I can stay healthy and smoke the GOOD cigarettes - not these MADE FOR THE USA brand - which plainly have a picture of someone with cancer of the mouth (a really ugly picture) on each package - I called when I received this package and spoke to someone who hung up on me - so that is the reason I am writing - I am also CC: the head office of Djarium so they know what is going on - Ric Silver 35 Village Lane #2 Groton, CT 06340-4540 860-326-5408

Got my hands on a carton of Djarum Ultra-Menthol and I'm really impressed. Smooth and flavorful, almost like a dessert. Clove crackle and smell, yum. Only drawback is I'm constantly handing them out to the club girls and it's costing me a fortune!

I'm referring to the black clove Djarum cigarettes we get in the U.K , where all cigarettes are very expensive. They taste lovely, rich and aromatic, and are actual cigarettes, not cigars.

Comments:

The most sensational cigar I've ever smoked: cheap, flavorful, and unlike anything I have ever had. Be regressive when you smoke it and let it crackle, don't take it in too fast, and just unwind with it. Only complaint is the smell left on your fingers and clothes is incredibly harsh

They are an "every now and then" CIG. They hurt my throat after a few. Taste is very good for a clove cigarette.

Comments:

Despite the "ban", the Clove cigarette version is still very easy to get if you live in the US and purchase online. I ordered a couple cartons of these (23.95 per carton+$7 for international express shipping.) I've never had a problem even one time customs held them for 5 days before releasing them to be delivered, the package had been opened and put back together. For some reason the place I go to says that customs if you live on the west coast are worse than here in the east. I love the taste, it's the only cigarette I smoke (I only smoke 3-4 a day). The sweetness on your lips is very nice, you can easily taste the cinnamon and other spices baked into the dark black paper. They last a good while, unlike regular cigarettes these can be put out and put into a tube and when you relight, it tastes just as good. You can here the cloves crackle as you smoke, I've NEVER gotten a buzz off these or any other cigarette since the first couple weeks I smoked in high school, I'm in my 20's now so I don't even remember what a cig buzz is like. I'm looking at the pack now and I'm going to write it like it is on the pack... 1,6 MG NIKOTIN 25 MG Tar The current ones (well they were for 2013 and it's 2014 but I still have the "Black auto style" packs.) The indonesian tax stamp is beautiful, incorporating a hologram. These are by far my favorite smokes, I really liked the Djarum Black cigars until I got these, so if you do get some of these you will not want to go back to the cigars. They have a smooth pull and are not harsh at all to me.

i just tried these for the first time today since i've heard so much about them. i guess i'm not a clove cigarette fan, because i didn't like these that much at all. they smell AMAZING but the taste of them definitely isn't for me. they last a really time and they're really strong, so i guess you get what you pay for. they look really nice as well, but they're just not for me.

Comments:

While I've never had the original kretek version of this, I've only smoked the little cigars that are now the only thing sold in the US because of the ban. These are my go to pack when I'm willing to spend the money on them. Very fulfilling if you're looking for that nicotine rush. While not everyone will enjoy the spicy flavor, I absolutely love it, and not only do they taste good the cigarette itself is very sexy with a pure black filter and off black paper. I have noticed that sometimes the crackling can be very inconsistent, where some of the cigarettes will crackle through the whole cigarette some will not even crackle a little. Overall this is my favorite smoke and top of my list.

Comments:

The base version is black – it is intensely rich in all its flavours and in spite of it being so strong and quite powerful in the kretek-department it still begs you for very deep inhalations, long holds and moderate calm exhales. The smoke has creamy characteristics and makes for perfect snap-inhales and it leaves you with a mild, seductive clove-taste on your lips and in your mouth – as well as having a glorious odour – actually that is a kretek-thing and a smell you very quickly learn to appreciate here in Indonesia if you’re among local smokers. It may, however, not be the first clove-cigarette you want to try as it is a bit punchy (though not too much by my taste) in the clove taste.

not bad for cloves i guess, they still burn just as hot as any other of its type, are a little hard to draw through without needing to perform the Valsalva Maneuver on yourself afterwards, and like most cloves will dry out ur throat bad n make u feel a little numb n dizzy after smoking.

These are amazing. A if you don't like a strong taste don't get them. I love the taste they are sweet even when you lips hit the filter. Can probably make one last for a half hour so don't try to get a 3 minute quick one in the freezing cold. My favorite cigar/cig.

I'm a runner but because of raves and college I picked up smoking lol. Cloves are great; I love them. Although one shouldnt smoke a pack a day of them. After a year of being a new smoker, Ive already developed mild problems way too quickly. So be aware and enjoy cloves on occasion because they are enjoyable.

I am reviewing the cigarette version, not that shitty cigar version. I had these back in '09 before flavored ciggies were banned by Obama. They were amazing quality, had an awesome taste, and they burned for what seemed like forever. You just cannot beat a cigarette that crackles as you smoke it. I remember even in 2009, these were FSC free, but also really really expensive no matter where you went. Were they worth the price? Absolutely!!!! I might order some online from Indonesia to experience a real Djarum cigarette.

Reviewing the cigar version of course, seeing as it's 2011. Anyway, these have quite a high clove content and that provides a spicy note compared to the sweet note of the lower clove content Specials. The nicotine hit in these isn't very strong- it's mild at most. A plus as a result of the lower tobacco content is that they never burn my tongue or throat. The tobacco in these is still pretty good- it's so clean and natural tasting. Very earthy and mellow. These are very tasty, and the smoke is very sweet and I've often been told it smells more like a clove incense than a cigar! The worst thing about these is that they take ages to burn, and even though they aren't FSC, they still randomly extinguish theirselves often. Many people argue that cloves aren't an everyday smoke, even moreso now that they are cigarillos, but I still choose cloves as my everyday smokes. I do think these might be a little more extravagant, but once you get hooked on the high quality tobacco in these, it's hard to go back to others!

These were so disappointing after all the hype I heard. Maybe because these were the little cigar version after the cigarette version was banned. The taste was the big factor in it, it felt like I was smoking popery and not tobacco. I would like to try the cigarette version though, it hopefully will be better.

Absolutely adore Djarum Blacks. The original, that is available in the UK, not the cigarillo kind in the US. The only problem is that I can't smoke them standing up they give me such a hit. Taste amazing, they are slimmer and more tightly packed than most cigs. They're 'petite'. But they last a little bit longer than most cigs because they burn longer. They have a pleasant crackle from the cloves when smoking, and a sweet taste on the filter. A strong, distinctive flavour that hits the spot. Many people are put off by the price, but you can't chainsmoke these all day. They're just too intense, too strong. So they tend to last, and one pack will go a long way, if you're smoking something milder in between. My favorites by far.

Ahh, the world-famous Djarum Black. Unfortunately, I had no interest in clove cigarettes until I heard the news that it was banned in the US (along with all other flavored cigarettes other than menthol, obviously). I always just assumed that these black cigarettes were appealing to goths simply because it matched their wardrobe, not because of the flavor or anything (seriously, cloves???). I'm extremely glad that I decided to give these a try, though. I mean, the color is pretty damn cool in itself, actually. I'm a sucker for cigarettes in hues other than the typical white and brown filter. Now, the taste is... really polarizing, but I bet most people would enjoy it. It tastes exactly how the spice smells when being cooked. It's sweet, spicy, and reminds me of the warm days of Christmas. :D The filter itself is sweet, leaving your lips oh-so lickable. Also, a cool thing about these cigarettes is that it numbs your tongue. Anyway, in terms of strength, these are certainly very strong, though that's more for the throat hit and stuff. I practically get no buzz from these whatsoever, even though the nicotine levels are through the roof (1.6 mg, compared to, say, Marlboro Reds, which have 0.8 mg). Still, more than one of these and I do feel fairly sick afterward, mainly because these things burn extremely slowly. Make sure you have at least 10 minutes to spare. These are meant to be savored! I don't think these will replace my regular smokes, though I do keep a box with me whenever I get in the mood for a clove cigarette. These definitely have a BAMF factor, though they're still not as cool as Luckies... ;]

Excluding the occasional pack of something new to try, these are all I smoke. I love them. Unlike standard cigarettes, I find the scent and taste both quite pleasant. I can see the "juicy fruit" scent connection, but the clove scent is too strong for me to really agree that they smell like chewing gum.

these were the first cigs i ever smoked and i'll never forget that experience. although if the FDA is reading this, these aren't the cigs that got me addicted! since apparently that's the ideology behind the new ban. anyway, i smoked these for the first time in switzerland during a school trip to europe when my friend offered me one. the black paper and wonderful clove aroma was so enticing. if you've ever had juicy fruit gum, that's what these smell like. now multiply that smell by 10 and that's what they taste like :D this cig will always be special to me since it was of course my first. and hopefully (if you can get your hands on some, although the cigars available now are ok too) they will bring wonderful memories to you too. cheers!

After finally getting my hands on the acclaimed Djarum Black, I have to say that my high expectations were very well met. The clove flavor is delicious, and tastes almost like a slightly spicy cinnamon, and the cigarette itself smells like incense, or Christmas. Even the smoke is pleasantly aromatic. This is a very strong cigarette, however, and, in my opinion, should be smoked mostly at social events. It can be overwhelming, especially your first one, as this kretek delivered an extremely relaxing buzz to me; I'm glad I was sitting down at the time! All in all, this is definitely the best cigarette I have ever smoked, and I've tried several different brands. Head on over to your local smoke shop. Who knows? They might still sell them.

If you CAN find them, give 'em a try. They taste great and are nice to have once in a while. I couldn't imagine smoking these all the time, but they are a nice treat. They are shockingly easy on your throat and they taste great. The flavored tip is sweet - also a nice plus. If I had to describe the flavor in one word: cinnamon-y. Very similar to Djarum Splash, but not quite as smooth. Also, they don't leave you smelling like an ash tray. Good smoke.

Ahh these blacks. got hooked on them for about two months. Rare ones, these. strangers in public and in campus occasionally offer to barter 50 cents for one. Pretty funny how I'm paying $12 for a pack of these in Canada when I get them for a buck in my own hometown, Indonesia, where they manufacture them. My mom knows the owner of Djarum. They taste smooth upon inhale but leaves quite a sore throat after 2 sticks or 3. Sweet on the lips. also gives a numbing feel to the tip of the tongue. burns slowly. I have to say i'm not a fan of these anymore. the taste grew boring after a while.

I'm from Indonesia, and djarum sure is popular in my country, but compared to Djarum Super, the blacks are just not good. I smoke these occasionally just to look cool, since the entire cigarette is black. If you're looking for coolness, this one is great, looking for a mild taste, go for sampoerna A mild, and if you're looking for a great flavor, go for Djarum Super.

I've smoked these for quite some time, you don't feel the inhale because the eugonal in them numbs your throat, they have a pleasant taste, and an almost "Juicy fruit" like taste on the filter. I love them to death, however, smoking them in the morning with out eating, can cause you to throw up, and smoking a pack a day can lead you to cough up blood. They are quite strong and have some pretty odd side effects, I shake terribly when I smoke these, and sometimes they'll upset my stomach. They also leave a nice relaxing sleepy feeling once you're done. be careful smoking these, I just had one and while I enjoyed it very much, I also feel a little ill. worth the price, I paid almost 9$ a pack, and for the cigars, they're a little under 5$ in Wisconsin

Expensive, but worth it. These are, to me, the best cigarettes I've ever had. However, smoking them too often can make you sickish to cloves for a while. Also, as of late, the FDA banned flavored cigarettes, which has prompted them to respond by making them thicker and classifying them as cigars. The new ones taste about the same, but the older ones were the tops.

I tried these back in 2000. This brand is as close to menthol as i'll ever go. These are nice once in a blue moon, but reallllly expensive, and they will get you screwed up if you inhale to deeply. I can begin to feel the effects of smoking these after a days worth, so it's not recommended to smoke these all the time. You get all wheezy, your mouth gets all weird and syrupy, and your hands get sticky. I can't remember the last time I bought a pack of these, and I don't think I will ever again. Liqour stores are the only place around this area of MA, that even sells Djarums.

Djarum Black is a clove and tobacco blend cigarette based on the Indonesian kretek. The aroma and taste are both delicious and won't make you smell bad at all and the black filter paper just looks cool as heck, though the flavor is also very light smoke and isn't nearly as potent as a regular tobacco cigarette. This is really a very elegant smoke that you might bring with you to a black tie function, not something you'd chain smoke.

A good introduction to the world of kreteks, but often misjudged for what a kretek tastes like. "Often popularized by teenagers in North American countries who try to look cool by smoking alternative black cigarettes." This misconception leads people to believe that kreteks are inferior to regular smokes. Djarum Blacks are one of the weaker/tasteless kreteks I have smoked. It was my first and I liked it for a bit. After sampling with around 16 or 17 brands, I settled on Gudang Garam Professional. There are plenty of good kreteks out there from Gudang Garam, Sampoerna, Bentoel etc. Don't misjudge Blacks as being the standard of kreteks. They are a wonderful product and getting a good flavour profile takes some work. Think of it like cooking; without a good blend of spices and sweetness, the dish will fail.

These cigs are not too bad but are way too light, it felt like i was smoking air, but on the good side they do taste good and the flavorded filter taste is very nice like black licorice. There a good cigarette for a special occasion but deffinetly not an every day smoke. i'd reccommend these too conosours.

These do taste well enough but don't leave it burning in the ashtray! When you leave a lit one of these laying around in some ashtray, you finally smell that horrible smell that non-smokers are always complaining about. Most smokers are used to the smell of their regular brands. These djarums are just something nasty and awful IMHO.

These taste good, but they gave me no buzz at all. Plus, my chest hurts after I smoke one, and I'm a pack-a-day smoker. They're not worth the money. A full flavored menthol cigarette honestly tastes better in my opinion, and will give you a better buzz, without making your chest hurt and feel like it's going to collapse.

I live in Virginia and buy these cigarettes at 7-11 for $3 exactly for a 20 pack. My boyfriend buys marlboro for $2.76 for a pack of 20, so I don't think these cigarettes are over priced at all. I love the taste and not to mention they come already packed! They don't have the 2000 chemicals in them like regular cigarettes but you still get the same nicotine effect. I enjoy the taste it leaves in my mouth when I'm done smoking. You should just be sure to throw the butts outside or in a concealed trash can because these butts are the worst smelling ones ever!

I switch between these and Camel Crushes. I like strong flavors in my cigs and these do it. I love menthol, but there are days when I just crave a Djarum. They taste so sweet and the aroma is amazing. They burn so slow and make these little crackling noises when you inhale on em. It's amazing. Whenever I smoke them they leave the sweetest taste on my lips. They're a little bit pricy, but man, I swear, I'd pay the price any day for the taste.

Probably the best cigarette I have ever tasted. I must admit, these things have spoiled me, because now everything else I try tastes burnt and ugly in comparison. I can't even smoke regular cigarettes anymore, especially American brands; they're just too harsh, too smelly, and taste like chemicals. The taste of these cigarettes can best be described as faintly sweet, with hints of spicy and fruitiness. The chemical responsible for the smell of cloves, eugenol, has a numbing effect on the tissues of the mouth, throat, and lungs, so the smoke from these cigarettes always goes down smooth without a hint of harshness. The filter of the cigarette is soaked in some kind of very sugary, fruity liquid. Some people don't like this, or find it 'unmanly', but do not listen to them. It is all part of the Kretek experience. There's nothing like taking a big hit and then licking your lips to get the sweet taste on your tongue. The mixture in this cigarette is packed very, very tightly, giving it a very long burning time, around 10-15 minutes, depending on the smoker. Excellent for when you want to have a long, contemplative smoke. I do not feel that these cigarettes are particularly strong as far as nicotine goes. I do not get the sudden rush that I do with other cigarettes, especially unfiltered ones. As I said above, this is a contemplative cigarette that one must enjoy over time. And it will take a little time for the good feelings to come. But that's OK, because the smoke itself is so enjoyable. Around here, they do not cost significantly more than regular cigarettes, so I will say that the price is fair.

To me, these are basically enjoyment cigarettes. It's good to have them at a party or a big social event. Other than that, it's not really worth the money. After a while, the sweetness just gets tiring, and it doesn't even give you a very good buzz. If you're looking for a cigarette just to relax on, maybe with a drink or two, then buy a pack of these.

I have never been much of a fan of the thought of smoking clove cigarettes but i do love the taste of clove and decided to try a pack years ago.I gotta tell ya off the bat...it's a dessert smoke,plain and simple.I found no appropriate time to enjoy this except with a shot of liquer such as Jagermeister(with this it's a nice combination for the tastebuds).I felt childish having a pack of clove cigarettes that taste nothing but sweetness with no tobacco flavor to enjoy and every time you inhale on the cig it goes ' snap crackle and pop' from the burning spices.The 3 little elves from Rice Krispies should endorse this product.

I friend on mine had a pack of these and I bummed one from him. They are decent but I can't say that I could or even would smoke these everyday. They are expensive and rare where I live, only one shop sells them. They sort of feel like a candy cigarette. I mean that it's sweet, even the butt has sugar on it, try licking your lips after the first few hits. The clove smell that is produced is very strong and very different then any other cigarette that I have ever had. Can't really say that it's a good thing. It tends to give me a headache really fast. Overall. Buy them if you're bored. They are a fun thing to try but not buy time and time again.

A friend smokes these. A male friend. Smoke a real cigarette if you're going to smoke at all. Kretek is just as bad as regulars, just less tar. As an alternative, smoke a cigarette and stand over a bowl of potpourri. You'll have the same effect.

currently my favorite smoke. Everything about them is far superior to everything else I have tried. First off, the black packaging is very attractive and gets a lot of attention. They smell amazing, before being lit, and while burning. The smoke is dense and flavorful. They burn for a long time, 12-20 minutes depending on how I'm smoking them. The paper is sweetened, nicely complementing the spicy flavor. When you get done, you feel very satisfied and relaxed, enjoying the numb feeling in your mouth and lungs. Never had a need for a follow up. I'm sure these aren't the perfect cigarette, but they are damn close

I love these. Smoking cloves is the best. These cigarettes are DELICIOUS - even when you're not smoking them because the paper tastes that great. The taste is a bit strong, which is very pleasant, but it gets a 3 for strength because they're the smoothest things ever. Not an everyday cigarette, but they're wonderful nonetheless.

These are odd cigarettes...I feel like it's an insult to even call them cigarettes. They come in an unusual flat, square, mysterious box, and the cigs themselves are completely black and are wrapped in a sugar coated paper. You can't even notice you are inhaling these, they're as smooth as air. What you will notice is the amazing flavor, the pleasant aroma, and that neat crackling sound they make when you take a puff. These clove candy-sticks taste like a nice, spicy pumpkin pie, and have the smells of a cozy bakery. These things don't burn very fast and that's a good thing; it gives you plenty of time to take a break and savor the flavor. The clove smell is pretty strong, even noticeable on an unopened pack. The store clerk I bought these from took a sniff of the pack before he handed it over. The only downside to these is there really isn't much of a buzz Djarum Blacks are a soothing treat to have every once in a while, but I wouldn't have them as my daily smoke because they feel so decadent and they are quite pricey.

I consider Djarum Blacks to be the Holy Grail of commercially available cigarettes. The taste is definitely the primary attraction, and the filter's outer paper is flavored to boot. The smoke is extremely smooth, but don't be fooled You'll feel these. They tend to burn for quite awhile in contrast to many other brands (lasting at least 15-20 minutes) due to how tightly they are packed. For this, I think the higher cost is justified, but it all depends on what kind of smoker you really are. These aren't my primary brand, as I consider them to be somewhat of a treat to indulge in when appropriate. Give these a try if you see them, but don't be so quick to chuck your Camels.

I was excited to try these but they definitly wern't what I was expecting. First of all you don't even feel yourself inhaling, maybe some people like this but I just felt like I wasn't even smoking anything. Second of all the taste gets discusting after about half the cigeratte but I felt like I needed to smoke the rest since I paid so much money for them. Plus I don't like how the whole cigarette is black, its just strange. The pack is annoying too its impossible to pack and it jabs ur leg inside your pocket. The good features are that they smell good and the taste is nice in the begining. If you could just lick the tips of these and smoke a normal cigeratte it might be worth it but not for 8 bucks.

these cigs truthfully are quite pleasant, although i could do without their special "sauce." for some reason, the idea of my cigarettes coming paired with a flavored sauce is an absolutely disgusting concept... what if some marlb reds came with a barbeque sauce laced filter (for some reason that sounds awesome.) either way for all intensive purposes i will refer to the "sauce" as flavored tipping. the flavored tipping does have a great flavor, but it does impart an odd numbing sensation onto your lips causing me to constantly lick my lips. the flavor of the cigs is quite nice for a clove cigarette, and i'd venture to say that if you don't enjoy this clove cigarette you should stay away from them in general. the smoke on the blacks is extraordinarily smooth and pleasant. it packs enough of a puch without any harshness on your throat. with that being said... the obviously will burn slower, being a premium cigarette that is comprises of a 60/40 blend of clove to tobacco, and with this slow burning i find myself tiring of the taste and the cigarette in general about halfway through. good cig, nice and sweet in smoke flavor as well as in "sauce" flavor, but quite possibly a bit too much of a good thing.

I've tried smoking regular cigarettes, and the taste always made me want to vomit...and then I discovered Djarum Black. The cloves are really great, they keep the tobacco from becoming overpowering, and actually leave you smelling pretty good if you dislike smelling too much like tobacco smoke, or don't want parents to fin out, haha. The taste is nice and smooth, not too strong or weak either. They're really relaxing and a little bit more elevated in style than your run-of-the-mill cigarette...you're not one of the countless Marlboro smokers... Really great for smoking when you're driving or just want to chill...except they are hard to keep burning unless you keep dragging. Definitely not one for the hardcore smoker...but nice for those of us who like a cigarette a couple of times a week. :)

To me these cigs are a great after dinner dessert. I love the way they make your tongue numb after smoking them. The appearance of the stick just shows how unique and desirable the experience of smoking one is. The flavor is much better than the rest of the djarum blends (especially Splash). If you want a cig to smoke once in a while this is the way to go. However, it can really give you a headache if you smoke too much of these in one day. Packs of these are really expensive.... so let your wallet be warned.

It's definitely a cigarette that sends a message. Some people love the smell, others despise it. But, it is a definite conversation starter. The flavor is absolutely amazing and it's a long lasting smoke that makes that smoke-break at work all the more enjoyable. Granted, the price is a tad bit high, but it is well worth the smoke. The lowest I've found them was $4.12 a pack, and I am more then willing to pay every penny for them.

I like the Blacks, but they are a little too harsh and taste a little uninteresting compared to some of the other Djarum blends. I will buy a pack of these every now and then, but I end up giving too many away, and at how high priced they are, they are not always worth the buy. Cloves are such a nice thing though, and these could be the place to start buying them.

My regular choice, though these can be hard to find in certain places. Tastes more like clove than tobacco, and leaves you smelling like clove as well. That said, I'd still take these over any other cigarrete.

If you enjoy kreteks, this is a more-or-less standard cigarette with a nice taste. However, the black paper makes you look like a freak and smokers that bum these off you sometimes react violently. Others attempt to rob you of more cigarettes, claiming that they'll give you free food at Burger King because they work there and the boss never watches them. Do not believe these thieves. If you're looking for a great kretek, you can't go wrong with blacks; I would even wager to say that if you want to try cloves and you don't enjoy blacks, don't go futher and stick with Camels.

Djarum Blacks seem to be one of those cigarette brands that people either love or hate. I (along with probably half of my friends) love Djarum Blacks (but I'm the only one that smokes them regularly). To put it simply, they are some of the best cigarettes you can buy. Sure, they may be a little more expensive ($5.50-ish where I live) but they're longer than regular cigarettes and last longer. Plus, their quality is top notch. The only drawback is they are very smooth so you'll have to hit them harder than regular cigarettes to get a good buzz.

Used to favor these, because a lot of teens in my area would smoke them (scene/hardcore whatever kids). Liked them for a while. But then i started to feel sick from them. I would never chain one after another, unless I want change my briefs and then puke on the floor. But if you want a cigarette thats weak yet kicks your head and makes you very light headed (and might i add a tongue tingling sensation) then try these.

An ok cigarette. The first couple are yummy, and you start to like the cloves. However, the tobacco is almost unnoticeable. After smoking too many of these, you start to hate the taste. Also, if you smoke too many your throat starts to bleed.

A word of advice: don't attempt to smoke these in under ten minutes; severe headaches will ensue. When I first tried these I heavily enjoyed the flavor that seemed to have a sweet peppermint-esque element to it. However, they become old very fast and will appear to be disgusting. It's best to use heavy moderation with this brand and as a transition from other cigarettes. Also, these are a brand that will make you vastly unpopular with colleagues, especially non-smokers, as you don't smell pleasant and your peers that smoke will view you as a follower of trends.

These are the first tobacco product I ever smoked, so I may be biased- but I must tell, you they ROCK. After these, "regular" (non flavoured/mentholated) cigarettes seem disgusting. They are an extremely rich Kretek with an indulgently sweet "sauce" - Richer but less cinnamon-y than a Djarum Special. If you like Specials, try these. You'll be converted forever. If you like Djarum Supers, don't bother. Blacks are too cool for you.

I love these smokes, my friend bought a single one and he let me take a few drags off of his and I absolutely loved them. They had a great taste and a good smell, so after you smoke it, you don't even smell like an ashtray. They are quite more expensive then a regular pack of cigarettes if you buy them in packs, but I think they are worth it. I love how they kind of crackle in your throat when you smoke these.

today I finally got a package from you or at least from Sugiharta - which was not what I ordered - I ordered 6 cartons of Djarium Blacks ( the Indonesian brand- with clove pieces in the tobacco) and got 3 cartons of the American Brand (Export Quality) I sent $160.00 (6 cartons at $16.35 ea) = 98.10 plus $62.35 for shipping - and got 3 cartons (@ $16.35 ea) = $49.05 Should I send these back - and get what I ordered - or are you willing to make this right? please tell me what I should do at this point - I have been waiting since December for my cigarettes - and these are the same as the ones I can get over the counter here in the USA - which plainly state on the package are harmful to your health and could cause lip cancer - I have been smoking the original brand (with pieces of clove in the tobacco) for over 30 years and in all that time - every chest x-ray I have had taken - the technician always says - "You don't smoke do you...." and I always reply - only a pack a day - to which he says - "You would never know it from your x-rays - " But the last x-ray I had taken - after you started selling this American brand (Export brand) the x-ray tech said - I see you smoke..... so there is something wrong with these American made cigarettes - and that is why I am ordering them off the internet from you - so I can stay healthy and smoke the GOOD cigarettes - not these MADE FOR THE USA brand - which plainly have a picture of someone with cancer of the mouth (a really ugly picture) on each package - I called when I received this package and spoke to someone who hung up on me - so that is the reason I am writing - I am also CC: the head office of Djarium so they know what is going on - Ric Silver 35 Village Lane #2 Groton, CT 06340-4540 860-326-5408

I'm referring to the black clove Djarum cigarettes we get in the U.K , where all cigarettes are very expensive. They taste lovely, rich and aromatic, and are actual cigarettes, not cigars.

The most sensational cigar I've ever smoked: cheap, flavorful, and unlike anything I have ever had. Be regressive when you smoke it and let it crackle, don't take it in too fast, and just unwind with it. Only complaint is the smell left on your fingers and clothes is incredibly harsh

They are an "every now and then" CIG. They hurt my throat after a few. Taste is very good for a clove cigarette.

Despite the "ban", the Clove cigarette version is still very easy to get if you live in the US and purchase online. I ordered a couple cartons of these (23.95 per carton+$7 for international express shipping.) I've never had a problem even one time customs held them for 5 days before releasing them to be delivered, the package had been opened and put back together. For some reason the place I go to says that customs if you live on the west coast are worse than here in the east. I love the taste, it's the only cigarette I smoke (I only smoke 3-4 a day). The sweetness on your lips is very nice, you can easily taste the cinnamon and other spices baked into the dark black paper. They last a good while, unlike regular cigarettes these can be put out and put into a tube and when you relight, it tastes just as good. You can here the cloves crackle as you smoke, I've NEVER gotten a buzz off these or any other cigarette since the first couple weeks I smoked in high school, I'm in my 20's now so I don't even remember what a cig buzz is like. I'm looking at the pack now and I'm going to write it like it is on the pack... 1,6 MG NIKOTIN 25 MG Tar The current ones (well they were for 2013 and it's 2014 but I still have the "Black auto style" packs.) The indonesian tax stamp is beautiful, incorporating a hologram. These are by far my favorite smokes, I really liked the Djarum Black cigars until I got these, so if you do get some of these you will not want to go back to the cigars. They have a smooth pull and are not harsh at all to me.

i just tried these for the first time today since i've heard so much about them. i guess i'm not a clove cigarette fan, because i didn't like these that much at all. they smell AMAZING but the taste of them definitely isn't for me. they last a really time and they're really strong, so i guess you get what you pay for. they look really nice as well, but they're just not for me.

While I've never had the original kretek version of this, I've only smoked the little cigars that are now the only thing sold in the US because of the ban. These are my go to pack when I'm willing to spend the money on them. Very fulfilling if you're looking for that nicotine rush. While not everyone will enjoy the spicy flavor, I absolutely love it, and not only do they taste good the cigarette itself is very sexy with a pure black filter and off black paper. I have noticed that sometimes the crackling can be very inconsistent, where some of the cigarettes will crackle through the whole cigarette some will not even crackle a little. Overall this is my favorite smoke and top of my list.

The base version is black – it is intensely rich in all its flavours and in spite of it being so strong and quite powerful in the kretek-department it still begs you for very deep inhalations, long holds and moderate calm exhales. The smoke has creamy characteristics and makes for perfect snap-inhales and it leaves you with a mild, seductive clove-taste on your lips and in your mouth – as well as having a glorious odour – actually that is a kretek-thing and a smell you very quickly learn to appreciate here in Indonesia if you’re among local smokers. It may, however, not be the first clove-cigarette you want to try as it is a bit punchy (though not too much by my taste) in the clove taste.

not bad for cloves i guess, they still burn just as hot as any other of its type, are a little hard to draw through without needing to perform the Valsalva Maneuver on yourself afterwards, and like most cloves will dry out ur throat bad n make u feel a little numb n dizzy after smoking.

I'm a runner but because of raves and college I picked up smoking lol. Cloves are great; I love them. Although one shouldnt smoke a pack a day of them. After a year of being a new smoker, Ive already developed mild problems way too quickly. So be aware and enjoy cloves on occasion because they are enjoyable.

I am reviewing the cigarette version, not that shitty cigar version. I had these back in '09 before flavored ciggies were banned by Obama. They were amazing quality, had an awesome taste, and they burned for what seemed like forever. You just cannot beat a cigarette that crackles as you smoke it. I remember even in 2009, these were FSC free, but also really really expensive no matter where you went. Were they worth the price? Absolutely!!!! I might order some online from Indonesia to experience a real Djarum cigarette.

Reviewing the cigar version of course, seeing as it's 2011. Anyway, these have quite a high clove content and that provides a spicy note compared to the sweet note of the lower clove content Specials. The nicotine hit in these isn't very strong- it's mild at most. A plus as a result of the lower tobacco content is that they never burn my tongue or throat. The tobacco in these is still pretty good- it's so clean and natural tasting. Very earthy and mellow. These are very tasty, and the smoke is very sweet and I've often been told it smells more like a clove incense than a cigar! The worst thing about these is that they take ages to burn, and even though they aren't FSC, they still randomly extinguish theirselves often. Many people argue that cloves aren't an everyday smoke, even moreso now that they are cigarillos, but I still choose cloves as my everyday smokes. I do think these might be a little more extravagant, but once you get hooked on the high quality tobacco in these, it's hard to go back to others!

These were so disappointing after all the hype I heard. Maybe because these were the little cigar version after the cigarette version was banned. The taste was the big factor in it, it felt like I was smoking popery and not tobacco. I would like to try the cigarette version though, it hopefully will be better.

Absolutely adore Djarum Blacks. The original, that is available in the UK, not the cigarillo kind in the US. The only problem is that I can't smoke them standing up they give me such a hit. Taste amazing, they are slimmer and more tightly packed than most cigs. They're 'petite'. But they last a little bit longer than most cigs because they burn longer. They have a pleasant crackle from the cloves when smoking, and a sweet taste on the filter. A strong, distinctive flavour that hits the spot. Many people are put off by the price, but you can't chainsmoke these all day. They're just too intense, too strong. So they tend to last, and one pack will go a long way, if you're smoking something milder in between. My favorites by far.

Word of caution: do NOT smoke these while walking around, under any circumstances. I was THIS close to puking my guts out, lol. Still, overall a ridiculously tasty cigarette. The mini-cigars in the States don't hold a candle to the original ones, btw.

Ahh, the world-famous Djarum Black. Unfortunately, I had no interest in clove cigarettes until I heard the news that it was banned in the US (along with all other flavored cigarettes other than menthol, obviously). I always just assumed that these black cigarettes were appealing to goths simply because it matched their wardrobe, not because of the flavor or anything (seriously, cloves???). I'm extremely glad that I decided to give these a try, though. I mean, the color is pretty damn cool in itself, actually. I'm a sucker for cigarettes in hues other than the typical white and brown filter. Now, the taste is... really polarizing, but I bet most people would enjoy it. It tastes exactly how the spice smells when being cooked. It's sweet, spicy, and reminds me of the warm days of Christmas. :D The filter itself is sweet, leaving your lips oh-so lickable. Also, a cool thing about these cigarettes is that it numbs your tongue. Anyway, in terms of strength, these are certainly very strong, though that's more for the throat hit and stuff. I practically get no buzz from these whatsoever, even though the nicotine levels are through the roof (1.6 mg, compared to, say, Marlboro Reds, which have 0.8 mg). Still, more than one of these and I do feel fairly sick afterward, mainly because these things burn extremely slowly. Make sure you have at least 10 minutes to spare. These are meant to be savored! I don't think these will replace my regular smokes, though I do keep a box with me whenever I get in the mood for a clove cigarette. These definitely have a BAMF factor, though they're still not as cool as Luckies... ;]

Excluding the occasional pack of something new to try, these are all I smoke. I love them. Unlike standard cigarettes, I find the scent and taste both quite pleasant. I can see the "juicy fruit" scent connection, but the clove scent is too strong for me to really agree that they smell like chewing gum.

these were the first cigs i ever smoked and i'll never forget that experience. although if the FDA is reading this, these aren't the cigs that got me addicted! since apparently that's the ideology behind the new ban. anyway, i smoked these for the first time in switzerland during a school trip to europe when my friend offered me one. the black paper and wonderful clove aroma was so enticing. if you've ever had juicy fruit gum, that's what these smell like. now multiply that smell by 10 and that's what they taste like :D this cig will always be special to me since it was of course my first. and hopefully (if you can get your hands on some, although the cigars available now are ok too) they will bring wonderful memories to you too. cheers!

After finally getting my hands on the acclaimed Djarum Black, I have to say that my high expectations were very well met. The clove flavor is delicious, and tastes almost like a slightly spicy cinnamon, and the cigarette itself smells like incense, or Christmas. Even the smoke is pleasantly aromatic. This is a very strong cigarette, however, and, in my opinion, should be smoked mostly at social events. It can be overwhelming, especially your first one, as this kretek delivered an extremely relaxing buzz to me; I'm glad I was sitting down at the time! All in all, this is definitely the best cigarette I have ever smoked, and I've tried several different brands. Head on over to your local smoke shop. Who knows? They might still sell them.

If you CAN find them, give 'em a try. They taste great and are nice to have once in a while. I couldn't imagine smoking these all the time, but they are a nice treat. They are shockingly easy on your throat and they taste great. The flavored tip is sweet - also a nice plus. If I had to describe the flavor in one word: cinnamon-y. Very similar to Djarum Splash, but not quite as smooth. Also, they don't leave you smelling like an ash tray. Good smoke.

Ahh these blacks. got hooked on them for about two months. Rare ones, these. strangers in public and in campus occasionally offer to barter 50 cents for one. Pretty funny how I'm paying $12 for a pack of these in Canada when I get them for a buck in my own hometown, Indonesia, where they manufacture them. My mom knows the owner of Djarum. They taste smooth upon inhale but leaves quite a sore throat after 2 sticks or 3. Sweet on the lips. also gives a numbing feel to the tip of the tongue. burns slowly. I have to say i'm not a fan of these anymore. the taste grew boring after a while.

I'm from Indonesia, and djarum sure is popular in my country, but compared to Djarum Super, the blacks are just not good. I smoke these occasionally just to look cool, since the entire cigarette is black. If you're looking for coolness, this one is great, looking for a mild taste, go for sampoerna A mild, and if you're looking for a great flavor, go for Djarum Super.

I've smoked these for quite some time, you don't feel the inhale because the eugonal in them numbs your throat, they have a pleasant taste, and an almost "Juicy fruit" like taste on the filter. I love them to death, however, smoking them in the morning with out eating, can cause you to throw up, and smoking a pack a day can lead you to cough up blood. They are quite strong and have some pretty odd side effects, I shake terribly when I smoke these, and sometimes they'll upset my stomach. They also leave a nice relaxing sleepy feeling once you're done. be careful smoking these, I just had one and while I enjoyed it very much, I also feel a little ill. worth the price, I paid almost 9$ a pack, and for the cigars, they're a little under 5$ in Wisconsin

Expensive, but worth it. These are, to me, the best cigarettes I've ever had. However, smoking them too often can make you sickish to cloves for a while. Also, as of late, the FDA banned flavored cigarettes, which has prompted them to respond by making them thicker and classifying them as cigars. The new ones taste about the same, but the older ones were the tops.

I tried these back in 2000. This brand is as close to menthol as i'll ever go. These are nice once in a blue moon, but reallllly expensive, and they will get you screwed up if you inhale to deeply. I can begin to feel the effects of smoking these after a days worth, so it's not recommended to smoke these all the time. You get all wheezy, your mouth gets all weird and syrupy, and your hands get sticky. I can't remember the last time I bought a pack of these, and I don't think I will ever again. Liqour stores are the only place around this area of MA, that even sells Djarums.

Djarum Black is a clove and tobacco blend cigarette based on the Indonesian kretek. The aroma and taste are both delicious and won't make you smell bad at all and the black filter paper just looks cool as heck, though the flavor is also very light smoke and isn't nearly as potent as a regular tobacco cigarette. This is really a very elegant smoke that you might bring with you to a black tie function, not something you'd chain smoke.

A good introduction to the world of kreteks, but often misjudged for what a kretek tastes like. "Often popularized by teenagers in North American countries who try to look cool by smoking alternative black cigarettes." This misconception leads people to believe that kreteks are inferior to regular smokes. Djarum Blacks are one of the weaker/tasteless kreteks I have smoked. It was my first and I liked it for a bit. After sampling with around 16 or 17 brands, I settled on Gudang Garam Professional. There are plenty of good kreteks out there from Gudang Garam, Sampoerna, Bentoel etc. Don't misjudge Blacks as being the standard of kreteks. They are a wonderful product and getting a good flavour profile takes some work. Think of it like cooking; without a good blend of spices and sweetness, the dish will fail.

These do taste well enough but don't leave it burning in the ashtray! When you leave a lit one of these laying around in some ashtray, you finally smell that horrible smell that non-smokers are always complaining about. Most smokers are used to the smell of their regular brands. These djarums are just something nasty and awful IMHO.

I live in Virginia and buy these cigarettes at 7-11 for $3 exactly for a 20 pack. My boyfriend buys marlboro for $2.76 for a pack of 20, so I don't think these cigarettes are over priced at all. I love the taste and not to mention they come already packed! They don't have the 2000 chemicals in them like regular cigarettes but you still get the same nicotine effect. I enjoy the taste it leaves in my mouth when I'm done smoking. You should just be sure to throw the butts outside or in a concealed trash can because these butts are the worst smelling ones ever!

I switch between these and Camel Crushes. I like strong flavors in my cigs and these do it. I love menthol, but there are days when I just crave a Djarum. They taste so sweet and the aroma is amazing. They burn so slow and make these little crackling noises when you inhale on em. It's amazing. Whenever I smoke them they leave the sweetest taste on my lips. They're a little bit pricy, but man, I swear, I'd pay the price any day for the taste.

Probably the best cigarette I have ever tasted. I must admit, these things have spoiled me, because now everything else I try tastes burnt and ugly in comparison. I can't even smoke regular cigarettes anymore, especially American brands; they're just too harsh, too smelly, and taste like chemicals. The taste of these cigarettes can best be described as faintly sweet, with hints of spicy and fruitiness. The chemical responsible for the smell of cloves, eugenol, has a numbing effect on the tissues of the mouth, throat, and lungs, so the smoke from these cigarettes always goes down smooth without a hint of harshness. The filter of the cigarette is soaked in some kind of very sugary, fruity liquid. Some people don't like this, or find it 'unmanly', but do not listen to them. It is all part of the Kretek experience. There's nothing like taking a big hit and then licking your lips to get the sweet taste on your tongue. The mixture in this cigarette is packed very, very tightly, giving it a very long burning time, around 10-15 minutes, depending on the smoker. Excellent for when you want to have a long, contemplative smoke. I do not feel that these cigarettes are particularly strong as far as nicotine goes. I do not get the sudden rush that I do with other cigarettes, especially unfiltered ones. As I said above, this is a contemplative cigarette that one must enjoy over time. And it will take a little time for the good feelings to come. But that's OK, because the smoke itself is so enjoyable. Around here, they do not cost significantly more than regular cigarettes, so I will say that the price is fair.

To me, these are basically enjoyment cigarettes. It's good to have them at a party or a big social event. Other than that, it's not really worth the money. After a while, the sweetness just gets tiring, and it doesn't even give you a very good buzz. If you're looking for a cigarette just to relax on, maybe with a drink or two, then buy a pack of these.

I have never been much of a fan of the thought of smoking clove cigarettes but i do love the taste of clove and decided to try a pack years ago.I gotta tell ya off the bat...it's a dessert smoke,plain and simple.I found no appropriate time to enjoy this except with a shot of liquer such as Jagermeister(with this it's a nice combination for the tastebuds).I felt childish having a pack of clove cigarettes that taste nothing but sweetness with no tobacco flavor to enjoy and every time you inhale on the cig it goes ' snap crackle and pop' from the burning spices.The 3 little elves from Rice Krispies should endorse this product.

I friend on mine had a pack of these and I bummed one from him. They are decent but I can't say that I could or even would smoke these everyday. They are expensive and rare where I live, only one shop sells them. They sort of feel like a candy cigarette. I mean that it's sweet, even the butt has sugar on it, try licking your lips after the first few hits. The clove smell that is produced is very strong and very different then any other cigarette that I have ever had. Can't really say that it's a good thing. It tends to give me a headache really fast. Overall. Buy them if you're bored. They are a fun thing to try but not buy time and time again.

currently my favorite smoke. Everything about them is far superior to everything else I have tried. First off, the black packaging is very attractive and gets a lot of attention. They smell amazing, before being lit, and while burning. The smoke is dense and flavorful. They burn for a long time, 12-20 minutes depending on how I'm smoking them. The paper is sweetened, nicely complementing the spicy flavor. When you get done, you feel very satisfied and relaxed, enjoying the numb feeling in your mouth and lungs. Never had a need for a follow up. I'm sure these aren't the perfect cigarette, but they are damn close

I love these. Smoking cloves is the best. These cigarettes are DELICIOUS - even when you're not smoking them because the paper tastes that great. The taste is a bit strong, which is very pleasant, but it gets a 3 for strength because they're the smoothest things ever. Not an everyday cigarette, but they're wonderful nonetheless.

These are odd cigarettes...I feel like it's an insult to even call them cigarettes. They come in an unusual flat, square, mysterious box, and the cigs themselves are completely black and are wrapped in a sugar coated paper. You can't even notice you are inhaling these, they're as smooth as air. What you will notice is the amazing flavor, the pleasant aroma, and that neat crackling sound they make when you take a puff. These clove candy-sticks taste like a nice, spicy pumpkin pie, and have the smells of a cozy bakery. These things don't burn very fast and that's a good thing; it gives you plenty of time to take a break and savor the flavor. The clove smell is pretty strong, even noticeable on an unopened pack. The store clerk I bought these from took a sniff of the pack before he handed it over. The only downside to these is there really isn't much of a buzz Djarum Blacks are a soothing treat to have every once in a while, but I wouldn't have them as my daily smoke because they feel so decadent and they are quite pricey.

I consider Djarum Blacks to be the Holy Grail of commercially available cigarettes. The taste is definitely the primary attraction, and the filter's outer paper is flavored to boot. The smoke is extremely smooth, but don't be fooled You'll feel these. They tend to burn for quite awhile in contrast to many other brands (lasting at least 15-20 minutes) due to how tightly they are packed. For this, I think the higher cost is justified, but it all depends on what kind of smoker you really are. These aren't my primary brand, as I consider them to be somewhat of a treat to indulge in when appropriate. Give these a try if you see them, but don't be so quick to chuck your Camels.

I was excited to try these but they definitly wern't what I was expecting. First of all you don't even feel yourself inhaling, maybe some people like this but I just felt like I wasn't even smoking anything. Second of all the taste gets discusting after about half the cigeratte but I felt like I needed to smoke the rest since I paid so much money for them. Plus I don't like how the whole cigarette is black, its just strange. The pack is annoying too its impossible to pack and it jabs ur leg inside your pocket. The good features are that they smell good and the taste is nice in the begining. If you could just lick the tips of these and smoke a normal cigeratte it might be worth it but not for 8 bucks.

these cigs truthfully are quite pleasant, although i could do without their special "sauce." for some reason, the idea of my cigarettes coming paired with a flavored sauce is an absolutely disgusting concept... what if some marlb reds came with a barbeque sauce laced filter (for some reason that sounds awesome.) either way for all intensive purposes i will refer to the "sauce" as flavored tipping. the flavored tipping does have a great flavor, but it does impart an odd numbing sensation onto your lips causing me to constantly lick my lips. the flavor of the cigs is quite nice for a clove cigarette, and i'd venture to say that if you don't enjoy this clove cigarette you should stay away from them in general. the smoke on the blacks is extraordinarily smooth and pleasant. it packs enough of a puch without any harshness on your throat. with that being said... the obviously will burn slower, being a premium cigarette that is comprises of a 60/40 blend of clove to tobacco, and with this slow burning i find myself tiring of the taste and the cigarette in general about halfway through. good cig, nice and sweet in smoke flavor as well as in "sauce" flavor, but quite possibly a bit too much of a good thing.

I've tried smoking regular cigarettes, and the taste always made me want to vomit...and then I discovered Djarum Black. The cloves are really great, they keep the tobacco from becoming overpowering, and actually leave you smelling pretty good if you dislike smelling too much like tobacco smoke, or don't want parents to fin out, haha. The taste is nice and smooth, not too strong or weak either. They're really relaxing and a little bit more elevated in style than your run-of-the-mill cigarette...you're not one of the countless Marlboro smokers... Really great for smoking when you're driving or just want to chill...except they are hard to keep burning unless you keep dragging. Definitely not one for the hardcore smoker...but nice for those of us who like a cigarette a couple of times a week. :)

To me these cigs are a great after dinner dessert. I love the way they make your tongue numb after smoking them. The appearance of the stick just shows how unique and desirable the experience of smoking one is. The flavor is much better than the rest of the djarum blends (especially Splash). If you want a cig to smoke once in a while this is the way to go. However, it can really give you a headache if you smoke too much of these in one day. Packs of these are really expensive.... so let your wallet be warned.

i love these. they burn a little too slowly for my taste, but i love the way they look, and the taste on your lips after smoking one is like no other. they're very unique (probably because of the Asian tobacco, not corporate virginia s**t). a great cig for when you're feeling relaxed at night...

It's definitely a cigarette that sends a message. Some people love the smell, others despise it. But, it is a definite conversation starter. The flavor is absolutely amazing and it's a long lasting smoke that makes that smoke-break at work all the more enjoyable. Granted, the price is a tad bit high, but it is well worth the smoke. The lowest I've found them was $4.12 a pack, and I am more then willing to pay every penny for them.

I have to agree with the guy below. I like these cigs, I like them a lot. However, I think I would get sick of them fast if I started to smoke them consistently.

I like the Blacks, but they are a little too harsh and taste a little uninteresting compared to some of the other Djarum blends. I will buy a pack of these every now and then, but I end up giving too many away, and at how high priced they are, they are not always worth the buy. Cloves are such a nice thing though, and these could be the place to start buying them.

My regular choice, though these can be hard to find in certain places. Tastes more like clove than tobacco, and leaves you smelling like clove as well. That said, I'd still take these over any other cigarrete.

This cig sets the standard for clove smokes. I smoke them on a regular basis and normally wouldn't think of buying anything else unless it was illegal. They have a great taste and, like all Djarums, they burn sloooooowwwwwwwly for your smoking pleasure. Oh yeah, they will fuck you up too. Excellent cigs.

If you enjoy kreteks, this is a more-or-less standard cigarette with a nice taste. However, the black paper makes you look like a freak and smokers that bum these off you sometimes react violently. Others attempt to rob you of more cigarettes, claiming that they'll give you free food at Burger King because they work there and the boss never watches them. Do not believe these thieves. If you're looking for a great kretek, you can't go wrong with blacks; I would even wager to say that if you want to try cloves and you don't enjoy blacks, don't go futher and stick with Camels.

Djarum Blacks seem to be one of those cigarette brands that people either love or hate. I (along with probably half of my friends) love Djarum Blacks (but I'm the only one that smokes them regularly). To put it simply, they are some of the best cigarettes you can buy. Sure, they may be a little more expensive ($5.50-ish where I live) but they're longer than regular cigarettes and last longer. Plus, their quality is top notch. The only drawback is they are very smooth so you'll have to hit them harder than regular cigarettes to get a good buzz.

These things are too strong. I will never buy another pack of them. They can be nice, if you smoke normal cigs regularly and burn one Black every couple of days. They should sell these in 5-packs or singles.

My friend is into the exotic cigarette thing, and he always smokes some with me. Most seem to be overhyped, but these are pretty unique in their taste and are worth a try. Didn't really find them to be to strong, but satisfying no the less.

These were the first cigarettes I tried and I liked them quite immediately. It is easy on the throat, and fun to smoke.

Used to favor these, because a lot of teens in my area would smoke them (scene/hardcore whatever kids). Liked them for a while. But then i started to feel sick from them. I would never chain one after another, unless I want change my briefs and then puke on the floor. But if you want a cigarette thats weak yet kicks your head and makes you very light headed (and might i add a tongue tingling sensation) then try these.

An ok cigarette. The first couple are yummy, and you start to like the cloves. However, the tobacco is almost unnoticeable. After smoking too many of these, you start to hate the taste. Also, if you smoke too many your throat starts to bleed.

A word of advice: don't attempt to smoke these in under ten minutes; severe headaches will ensue. When I first tried these I heavily enjoyed the flavor that seemed to have a sweet peppermint-esque element to it. However, they become old very fast and will appear to be disgusting. It's best to use heavy moderation with this brand and as a transition from other cigarettes. Also, these are a brand that will make you vastly unpopular with colleagues, especially non-smokers, as you don't smell pleasant and your peers that smoke will view you as a follower of trends.

These are the first tobacco product I ever smoked, so I may be biased- but I must tell, you they ROCK. After these, "regular" (non flavoured/mentholated) cigarettes seem disgusting. They are an extremely rich Kretek with an indulgently sweet "sauce" - Richer but less cinnamon-y than a Djarum Special. If you like Specials, try these. You'll be converted forever. If you like Djarum Supers, don't bother. Blacks are too cool for you.

Distinctive is an understatement when describing these, with a thick hazy smoke it's unlike anything else I've ever tried. Very pleasant, I'm suprised these aren't more widely avaible by now.

I love these smokes, my friend bought a single one and he let me take a few drags off of his and I absolutely loved them. They had a great taste and a good smell, so after you smoke it, you don't even smell like an ashtray. They are quite more expensive then a regular pack of cigarettes if you buy them in packs, but I think they are worth it. I love how they kind of crackle in your throat when you smoke these.

Sister brought a pack of these back from her vacation. I've never seen a cigarette like these. Black labeled, sweet, and hits like a truck. I can only imagine these cost a penny or two more than malboro's.
