Author's review "These hand rolled unfiltered kreteks are amazing. Even without filter the drag is so smooth and the taste is sweet and very tasty. The good thing about these hand rolled kreteks is that they don't use additives as oppose to the western cigarettes. But they have way more tar compared to other kreteks due to the non filter factor. So far this is the most exotic unfiltered kretek cigarettes I ever taste in my life, this brand is a local legend in Indonesia. it's sweet clove aroma and fine blended tobacco has made this kretek popular among the east indies residents including the Dutch since the 1970s."

This is a very, very good unfiltered kretek, and like my headline says, it has one main weakness; it is running around in the Djarum 76 zone. It is unwise to do that.
Djarum Coklat has a nice, clean and not overbearing honeyish sweetness to it. The tobacco notes get room to play in, with the more muted but still prominent spices, compared to the 76. Coklat is well balanced and very satisfying. I can´t, however, get away from the fact that all the flavours and nuances in this cigarette are present in the 76. They are stronger in the 76 too, and it also manages to have spices not present at all in the Coklat, while being even more balanced and complete.
If you find the 76 to be too rich, Djarum Coklat could very well be perfect cigarette for you. I wouldn´t buy this again, since it is a restrained, simplified version of the 76, in my opinion. It doesn´t offer anything different either, like a Wismilak Green, a Djarum Clavo or even a Bentoel Sejati does. Djarum Coklat is really a five-star unfiltered kretek; it just gets outdone by the 76, for me. Try it, though, it is a great smoke indeed.
And Ciggies World is a great webshop indeed; everything runs smoothly. Great packaging of the goods, easy payment, reliability, you name it - oh yes, and speed and efficiency.

I've been smoking for quite some time now, and I would have to say these cigarettes are the best I've had yet. Despite their heavy doses of nicotine and tar, they go down smooth and taste great.

These are the first unfiltered cloves I have tried, and I love them! My first order from ciggiesworld included these, a pack of Djarum Clavos, and a pack of the Dji Sam Soe 234 fatsal 5s. Out of the three, I enjoy these cigs the most (Dji Sam Soes 2nd, Clavos didnt make the cut in my opinion). Dont get me wrong, I wouldn't consider them "mild" by any stretch of the imagination, the right adjective to describe them would have to be smooth. They were consistently tightly packed and lasted me about 15 minutes when I took frequent drags and even longer when I took fewer drags. These are my ideal Kretek- they last long, taste strongly of cloves but have a good mix of tobacco as well, so theyre not overpowering, and they go well with a cup of black coffee. Djarum really hit it for me this time- and thank you Ciggiesworld.com for giving me the opportunity to try these! They might very well become my regular smokes!

Construction was consistent; like all kreteks the Coklats were packed very densely, had the conical shape iconic of non-filtered kreteks, and had a long burn time.
Wrapper had a good simple aesthetic; a wide yellow band with "Djarum" written on it and a gramophone needle below it on the paper.
Packs came triple-wrapped with an outer plastic shell, inner paper box, and cellophane around the kreteks themselves. 5 Stars for effort in maintaining freshness.
I found the flavor to be wanting. Not as strong as the Djarum 76s nor as complex. Not as smooth as the Bentoel Sejatis. Eugenol effect not very strong. I did find them to be almost too sweet and had a hard time getting through the entire pack.
If you've had the 76s and liked them and want to try the Coklats I think a comparison will leave you disappointed.

These were really just as disappointing as the extras. Oddly, these have a little more flavor than the Extras, but still not very prominent. Unfiltered, fairly thick and they don't taper nearly at all. The smoke is pretty smooth, but it's very much like a regular cigarette. They have the aroma and taste of the 76s- that unique potpourri-like note, except way less assertive. They are a little sweet, and have quite a eugenol effect even though the cloves are largely undetectable in flavor. The packaging is strange- plastic wrapped cigarettes in a soft pack wrapped in plastic. Not my kind of thing, I gave the rest to a friend.

I tried Djarum Coklats and was simply blown away with their taste and strength. The cigarette is packed very tightly and i treat more of a cigar so i only smoke 3-4 of these a day. It burns very slowly and produces a thick, dense, very sweet smoke that is silky smooth to inhale. The smoke produced by these goes down so smoothly it is hard to believe they have as much nicotine content as they do, so don't drag too hard. Remember, they are unfiltered and do pack a punch. The cigarette also takes quite a bit of suction to withdraw smoke from, similar to a cigarillo. These cigarettes produce a fragrant smoke almost unheard of to a traditional all-tobacoo cigarette smoker, therefore they do not stink up rooms/vehicles because the smoke actually smells very good to most people.
I advise strongly against making this your "work cigarette" as they burned a consistent 20 minutes for me. They cannot in my oppinion be chain smoked at all. They do not seem to be FSC (verified by leaving a butt to burn away, it was all ash in a couple minutes). Overall very fragrant, long burning, and delicious cigarettes that should be smoked after work and/or on weekends, with at least 20 minutes of time foresight to finish one.

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 quite strong for me to really agree that they smell like chewing gum.
