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."

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!!

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.

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!

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!

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

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!

much more satisfying than your normal standard menthol cigarettes

So happy I ordered! I will stick with you guys forever!

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 .

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

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.
Posted by Unknown 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:)
Posted by Unknown 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 !

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.
Posted by Unknown on 5th May 2014
Super fresh. Packages arrived in a timely manner and I'll definitely be buying from this company again.
Posted by Nick S. 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.
Posted by Luca 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
Posted by Rob on 25th Apr 2014
Ordered these from here since they are no longer available in the US. They arrived very quickly for an overseas order and were packaged very well. Every pack so far has been extremely fresh and taste exactly as I remember from before when you could buy them in the states! Would definitely buy from here again.

awsome, thank you so much :D

I'm a new costumer, and I couldn't be more happy with both Ciggiesworld and with the product I've ordered (djarum black).
This was my first kretek, and it was a fantastic experience, thank you Ciggiesworld
Posted by FL Sunflower on 17th Apr 2014
Everything as described, received in the time frame provided, packaged as described, excellent communication and that first clove from the package is an experience you'll savor. Will definitely be ordering again. Thank you!

I live in Florida, and typically get my order within 8 days from placing it. I have used ciggiesworld for a couple of years now, and have never been disappointed. Product is always packaged great, and I have not had any damaged packages.
Posted by Mike on 21st Mar 2014
I am very happy with this company. They step up and help US residence and provide access to Blacks. This is the best and only one of it's kind. Djarum tried to make it happen with the cigars but nothing touches Black Cigs.
Posted by steve on 4th Feb 2014
Blacks are a smooth snd flavoraful taste of greatness. Im glad i found a website that i am able to order them and that im able to still enjoy them since they have been banned from retail in usa.
Posted by Jack on 20th Jan 2014
When I started buying kreteks, number one on my list were the Djarum Blacks. Everyone told me how great they were and how sad they were that they got banned. Having tried these and a few other cloves, I have to say I'm not the biggest Black fan.
They kind of have a perfume taste to them that I don't notice in other cloves and even though they hurt the lungs chain smoked, I really don't get satisfying drags from them. :/.
In my opinion, if you like the Blacks, LA Lights are a much better alternative. Same sweetened filter, but a better taste. If you like a heavier smoke, I recommend the Djarum Supers. Tasty.
Anyway, nothing against the Blacks, I know some love them, but I wasn't a huge fan. Love ciggiesworld as always.
Posted by nmh on 16th Jan 2014
I will never smoke another cigarette again.
Insofar as I appreciate that smoking is harmful, no one, not least those enforcing restrictive laws involving tobacco, will prevent me from having my one djarum mild a day after work.
Totally mild, beautifully constructed and absolutely delicious. Get into them, you won't regret it!
Posted by Unknown on 12th Jan 2014
Price was good. Item arrived intact and at the end of the estimated shipping date. I'm not a smoker and had only had these once in the past. As far as I can tell, The cigarettes seem to be the same as the ones I bought when they were for sale in the states.
Posted by Garrett on 17th Dec 2013
Nothing more to say beyond the headline. Awesome as always and shipped fast
Posted by Liz on 9th Dec 2013
The shipping was very fast. Ordered on a saturday, arrived in PA by the next friday. Just under 2 wks. Seemed to be stuck in the NY sorting hub for a while. The carton arrived in excellent condition and very discreetly. Cigs were fresh and properly wrapped.
Posted by Jay on 16th Nov 2013
Smooth and tasty. Tried other brands of Djarum and though they too are very satisfying, Djarum Black exceeds all expectations. 5 stars all the way!
Posted by Telutano Herdens on 12th Nov 2013
Arguably the most iconic clove cigarette out there. I prefer other brands, but keep coming back to these on occasion because they just look so good!
