Author's comment "Djarum Black is a very well known world-wide brand, and you can find them in many different styles and sizes. This Djarum is one of our favourites because of it's distinctive black box. The cigarettes themselves are black too, so if you're trying for a gunfighter image, this might be the smoke for you. The cigarette is heavily flavored with clove...you can even taste it on the paper before you light up. We found the aroma and taste quite pleasant, although a little much for smoking steadily, day in and day out. Rather like an after-dinner liquor...you probably wouldn't want it as a constant diet, but for a once-in-a-while change, it's rather good. The tobacco in the Djarum Black is mostly dark leaf...some of the shreds were nearly black. It is packed very tightly. In fact, we could not compress it at all by tamping. (The first time we've run into that.) It is slightly longer than king size, but also slightly more slender. Be careful when you light up...the combination of the clove and slightly stronger tobacco flavor can give you a bit of a coughing reaction, but if you adjust your inhaling accordingly you will definitely like it. The combination of tightly packed tobacco and smaller drags make this one very slow burning. Make sure you've got a few minutes if you plan to finish it."

  1. Blacks are the BEST!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Nov 2015

    I love ordering from this site because the prices are great and anytime I have questions, someone always gets back to me quickly. Ciggies World has great customer service and I was so happy to finally get my Djarum Blacks since I can't find them anywhere anymore. One Extremely Satisfied customer!!

  2. Stellar 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2015

    This lot is great. Ordered some of these kreteks 2 weeks ago and it arrived today; I'm ecstatic. Having said that, these don't taste the same as the originals from back in the day. They're lovely, mind you, but as someone stated before, not as potent as the old ones. In any case, cheaper than buying an OK regular brand in DC so I'm set for life. Def. try these and this business out!

  3. Dreadful 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Oct 2015

    If you like kreteks im sure you'll love these. However, this was my first time trying them and they just weren't my cup of tea.

  4. Not bad compared to the originals 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Oct 2015

    What I remember when buying these back in the day before they were changed due to US regulations, they were... for lack of better words more "potent" for example the difference between diet soda, and the original. You are buying the diet soda type. Better than nothing right? However, I do not take away that they are the best I found since 2012. I am buying a carton.

  5. Sublime 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Oct 2015

    Today I received my package from ciggiesworld, and let me tell you, these guys are great. There are some scam artists out there, but not ciggiesworld. The finest cloves I have ever tasted arrived in perfect shape. It did take a few weeks, but remember, these fine smokes come from the other side of the globe. Thank you very much, and consider me a regular and loyal customer for life.

  6. Still Just As Amazing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Sep 2015

    I haven't been able to enjoy the Djarum brand since they were banned for distribution in the US (thanks, Obama). After some research I discovered CiggiesWorld.

    Skeptic at first, I decided to give it a chance, and I'm glad I did.

    Delivery takes a while (international), but the package arrived timely enough and completely undamaged.

    The product was just as amazing as I remember. Highly recommend!

  7. excellent! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2015

    other than the really gross pictures they put on the packs now, the Djarum blacks never disappoint. That sweet after taste with each drag plus that incredible clove scent that permeates the air. I can't light one of these up in a club without getting propositioned for one. Too bad my state along with several others are wimping out and not selling these. But in all reality, they're cheaper to order through ciggiesWorld. I was skeptical with an international order but everything went smooth. Thank you!

  8. Best cigs great service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Aug 2015

    I was VERY pleased with my purchase, I want to thank you for your help. The product is fresh and arrived promptly.

  9. missed these so bad 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Aug 2015

    I was so happy when I found these I had craved one for the last 5 years or so
    It was very easy to order and they arrived fairly quickly
    I was worried they might be on the old side but the date on the pack was only two weeks old I have to say they were the freshest I had ever had

  10. A Great Nostalgic Cigarette! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2015

    My first clove cigarette was the Djarum Black, and it was amazing. I was quite displeased when the US banned the sale of flavored cigarettes. Fear not however, for these are NOT those overpriced, lookalike, Djarum Black Cigarillos.. These ARE the legitimate Djarum ciagrettes you wish they still sold! Fast, cheap, and reliable service from Ciggies World!

  11. Must try! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jul 2015

    How stylish can a cigarette get? Behold: Djarum Black. From the sleek pack to the black and gold-banded cigarette to the classy contrasting red triangle in the center of the logo, these have got to be the coolest looking smokes on the market. It's not just aesthetics, though; they taste incredible as well. Obviously, these are not your typical cigarette: along with the tobacco, they're packed with cloves inside, resulting in a unique flavor. It's sweet, spicy, cinnamony, licoricey, and all that good stuff. Also, the cloves numb your mouth and throat, which reduces any harsh sensation that cigarettes typically have. The sugary filter paper is a nice touch too. And they burn slowly, so you can really savor the experience. Everything about these cigarettes is just so cool. Indonesia has the tobacco game down pat. Seriously impressed. The American Djarum Black cigarillos don't even come close to the real deal.

  12. Clove is the way to go 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jul 2015

    This is a great tasting smooth taste that is worth a try!

  13. A decadent delight! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2015

    I`ve been a fan of these things for several years now. Rich,stylish,and exotic. Definately for the smoker who likes to celebrate the finer moments in life with moreish treat. To be savoured and appreciated for what they are:)
    Thanks Ciggies World for making these easily available for the world to enjoy!

  14. 100 times better than the US version 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jul 2015

    Compared to the ones sold here in the US these are fantastically smooth and rich!. One of the best kreteks. Definitely worth buying again

  15. These look cool and taste great!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jun 2015

    These are black in color (very cool) slightly sweet tipped and smooth kretek mini cigarettes. Very good tasting, good quality. Djarum is true quality and these are quality and good tasting. Lots of snap, crackle, pop with these kretek cigs. I recommend trying a pack of them for sure. However I've discovered a similar black kretek called UP milds. They are very very similar to Djarum blacks but much cheaper in price. Do yourself a favor and get one pack of Djarum blacks and one pack of UP mild blacks and decide for yourselves. Both are good, but the UP mild blacks are much less money!!

  16. Less than I hoped for 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jun 2015

    My first kretek experience was, as the title states, less than I had expected. My wife used to smoke a pack a day of Djarum Specials so I thought I'd start with the Blacks, and go from there. I'm a very casual smoker, so I was surprised at the lack of, say, "potency". Flavour was rather dull, with a very subtle clove accent. The campfire pop and hiss was an entertaining novelty, and the burn rate was even and not overly long, but if the flavour doesn't make me smile and laugh, I'm not interested in another pack.

    I'd give it 2.5 stars if I could for being a moderately enjoyable smoke.

  17. awesome 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jun 2015

    was very excited to have these smokes again, as the last time i had them was before the U.S. ban. got here in the expected time frame. thanks!

  18. best cigarette ever -uk 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th May 2015

    the best cigarette I have tried to date! the cloves make it extra smooth, and the high nicotine makes you relax.. also the smell is very good and doesn't smelly bad like a normal cigarette. The wait was long, but was worth it in the end. I would definitely recommend them!

  19. Once you go black you cant go back 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Apr 2015

    this is the best of all kretek cigarettes
    nothing less nothing more simply the best

  20. In Canada 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Apr 2015

    I've missed these. Used to buy them in the US on vacation. Shipping was reasonable and the price was amazing.

  21. Fast shipping! so happ 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2015

    ordered from Korea, Seoul. Ever since my American introduced me djarum cigs I've fell in love with them. Can't get these in Korea which sucks so I'll rely on ciggiesworld! Shipping took 7 days, so quick! Thanks a lot!

  24. really good 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Feb 2015

    I though at first that this WEDSITE was a little shady I'm not gonna lie , but I just thought what the hell I'll give it a chance and it did take it while to get to me , but it was worth it I love them .

  25. Pretty bad 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jan 2015

    These were honestly pretty bad, there was a bad paper taste throughout the cigarette. I don't know if they were old or what.

  26. Great Smokes!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jan 2015

    I was hesitant about purchasing cigarettes online but am now glad I did. I received my smokes within 2 weeks, despite it being the busy holiday season. The Djarum Blacks were just as promised, hadn't had one in about 5 years and even better than I remember them. They were packaged neatly and very discreetly. Highly recommend this site to all. Purchase without worry.

  27. Love them! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Dec 2014

    WOW!! Outstanding! Arrived 5 days before New Years.
    Nice & fresh & taste fantastic! You know I'll be back for more + other brands too. Glad I found you guys!

    Thanks & Have a Happy, Prosperous New Year!

  28. Just like the ones I used to get 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2014

    I smoked my first kretek ~8 years ago, in the US. I loved them because they gave me a little bit of a "kick", but I wouldn't smoke more than three or four a day. I later moved to a part of Canada where kreteks aren't sold (and the ones that were in the adjacent province were lousy). Then, the US regulated away the old style Djarum Blacks.

    Was talking to some friends about how we all used to enjoy Djarum products when we were younger. Looked around and found CiggiesWorld. Order arrived in 11 days from the other side of the world. Great product, just like I remembered.

    Highly recommend using these guys, I will be in the future!

  29. Ciggies World handles everything just perfectly. 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2014

    My first review, and my first kretek.

    Ciggies World handles everything flawlessly. I live in Sweden, and I simply place my order, pay my money, and after 8-10 days or so, I have my Indonesian cigarettes. They come in a solid, protective, multi-layered packing, and arrive in mint condition. E-mails are answered, no hidden costs... I can´t praise CW enough.

    As for the Djarum Blacks, they were sadly a disappointment for me. Smell gorgeous unlit, very sweet, clovey and sort of spice cakey. They certainly look very stylish, and crackle satisfyingly, too. They a last a lot longer than ordinary cigarettes, very nice.

    The main problem is a heavy note of certain aspects of woodsmoke that appears repeatedly when smoking them. This is not a pleasant hint of smoke in the air, coming from a cottage in winter time, either, but the components that make you want to breath out and get rid of them. The expected spiciness is there, but seemingly aiming more for intensity than quality. The cigarette paper is thicker than usual, not good. The filter tip is very sweet, but it tastes like artificial sweetener to me. These cigarettes feel unbalanced, like they have no room for subtle aromas, only competing flavours. My opinion is obviously in the minority here, and I do recommend that you try them; they have an overall taste that is their own, and most people seem to really like them.

    Again, I can´t praise CW enough. They handle everything admirably.

  30. Prompt service from a professional company 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jul 2014

    The company as a whole provides great service and responds to all your emails in a timely professional manner.
    As for the Djarum Blacks… if you've never tried one, I'm definitely not going to spoil the experience for you. I will say, Every time I've smoked one in public, I gain new friends and meet new people. I ordered more cartons and will continue to do so to go along with my collection.

  31. Great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2014

    This is the first kretek I tried, enjoy the burning sounds and aromatic taste. Go down smooth and refreshing. But the nicotine and tar level is a bit high to me, going to try the "healthier" djarum mild. I probably will buy this again as the black colour really cool!!!! And gonna enjoy them in some special moment spending with fd:)

  32. Perfect strike 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st May 2014

    Packaging : paquet trés classe / cigarettes trés fines et plus longues que des classiques / couleur noire

    Odeur : peu sucré, assez épicé

    Gout : filtre un peu sucré / dosage parfait tabac-girofle avec un certain côté épicé / pas de côté "euphorisant"

    Fumée : un peu sucrée / légère

    Durée : une dizaine de 10 minutes

    Elles sont parfaites pour être fumée de manière régulière. Trés légère, une sérieuse concurrente au Sampoerna A-Mild !

    Ciggiesworld : réponses au mail, envoie en France rapide (<1 mois), avec suivi, sécurisé, et discret (pas de douanes). Le TOP !

  33. try it to believe it. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th May 2014

    This is a fantastic cigarette. If you enjoy smoking, and enjoy sitting back relaxing this is the cigarette for you. The all black sophisticated look of this cigarette is very appealing and very enjoyable. I love the taste and aroma of this cigarette. It's a totally unique cigarette and a totally unique flavour.

    As a regular Dunhill smoker, I really enjoyed the change that the Djarum Black brings. I would recommend this cigarette to any smoker looking for something to enjoy on his or her day off, or simply as a regular buy for a smoker.

    You have to try it.

    Thank you CiggiesWorld for this wonderful Kretek product. I will definitely be buying more of this product. That 3 carton discount looks very appealing.

  34. Awesome! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th May 2014

    Super fresh. Packages arrived in a timely manner and I'll definitely be buying from this company again.

  35. Not bad, but not what I was expecting... 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd May 2014

    First off, let me just say that I had only ordered a single pack of Djarum Blacks, but that they arrived rather quickly and discreetly packaged.

    As to the kreteks themselves, I used to smoke Djarum Blacks quite a bit before their sale was banned in the United States, and they were excellent, but the ones I received didn't quite taste or smoke like what I used to purchase locally. Don't get me wrong, they were still a good smoke, but my friend and I couldn't shake that they seemed to pale in comparison to their pre-ban counterparts.

    Bottom line, though, they were good and I will be planning on ordering more the next time around.

  36. very good 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2014

    very good cigarette, full of flavour but mild at the same time, recommended for every smoker. would meet all tastes, strong and light
