That unique taste of GG's paired with its smoothness.... love em to bits and I'm a chainsmoker used to Lights on normal cigarettes. Sweetness on the filter is very present too, but just enough sweetness. I've tried the GG Internationals and found them too extreme for my liking, but these are different. I wouldn't chain smoke these personally, due to the high levels of tar and Nic, but these would be my once in a blue moon Kreteks....

I haven't tried the cig yet, the new package look (Surya Pro) is alright i gues, liked the previous better tho :P. Also they have 1.7 mg of nicotine now.

always loved me some Djarum Supers, Gudang Garan Signature and even a few unfiltered kreteks such as Djarum Coklat, Djarum Clavo, and Djarum 76.
still have plenty of try but that's why there is a drawer of about 12 of them right next to me :)
a good ol' clove cigarette is perfect for the end of the night relaxation swag :)

Sweet and highly enjoyable. Quite slim but burns slowly. Beats any Australian cigarette IMO. I chose untrackable postage and it got to me within 3 weeks from order (Sydney, Australia). Packed very nicely and even came with a few candies which was nice. Would definitely recommend to anyone and would order again from these guys!

This kretek has a very nice sweetness to it. To the addition of the cloves I pick up a nice maple flavor. These are thinner kreteks so they burn quicker but great body and flavor. Re-ordered more of these.

When I saw the pack, I was confused because the pack was short and very thin. The ones shown on the site and in the video were standard sized kreteks.. but these new ones are like slims. However, they are strong and full of flavor.. so in a way they are much better in the smaller format because I dont think I would want to smoke a full size of this potency. They burn slow for their size and pack a real punch. A little on the harsh side but a very unique flavor. I liked them but not sure I would spend the money for them again.. but its possible. Give them a try and make up your own mind. I do think they should update the image and videos to let people know what they will be getting.

I am a regular customer. After having a few issues with deliveries, Ciggiesworld has always took care of me.

These are much better than Djarum Blacks. More clove but yet sweet. I stopped smoking Djarum Blacks after trying these.

I used to smoke Djarum Blacks, but after trying these, I have never went back. Professionals have a more of a clove taste, and are very sweet. Unfortunately the packaging has changed, with cancer related pictures on the front. I guess you could buy a nice cigarette case to hold them if it bothers you. But, I highly recommend based on taste alone.

I been using the Djarum brand first with the Specials since 2008 till I had a hard time finding them in the last year. But discovered Ciggies World and I ordered the Supers and couldn't believe what I been missing. I'll never use the Specials again. But overtime I noticed they were a bit much for me basically for the 32 mg tar mostly.
Then I bought these Gudang Garam Professionals and at first two things shocked me how smaller they were from the Supers and the changing of the packaging which I have to put my own stickers over the photos that are now on them because there just way too graphic. The same photos are also on the Supers too. But these have 25 mg of tar and taste similar and lighter to the Supers but are not as heavy. I'm glad I took a chance and got these. I saw the reviews for the Sampoerna A Mild and and they are even lighter with 15 mg of tar and the reviews are top notch. I will be ordering those next. After my research there doesn't seem to be any left for me that I'll would try. These three are the top notch for me. I have tried other Djarums like the Black ( and even the flavored ones which are hard to find now ) also but were a bit strong.

I'm a 26 yr old AA woman who has been enjoying Clove cigarettes since I was about 19 yrs old. When they banned flavored Ciggs in the US I was devastated. Recently I stumbled upon this website and ordered these (along w/) 2 other brands) At first I thought ciggies world got my order wrong because the packaging on this product is not the same as the photo on this website. So don't be alarmed when you get this product.
The smoke on these kretek ciggs is absolutely intoxicating. Very sweet w/ a thick body. You will definitely get a buzz and enjoyable mouth feel. I will definitely be ordering these again.

They're good kreteks but I had better. After smoking Djarum Super I don't think I can smoke any other kreteks......these are very smooth however and you get pretty good smoke out of them

I have been smoking Cloves for quite some time now and I like these the most. I have tried many different brands and quality. What I like the most about these is that they have a ligther and smoother drag then most cloves out there. Most of all, they taste good. They also leave a pleasant smell in the air as opposed to most cigs out there.

These are 16 count mini kretek cigarettes. Very short filter, tastes great!! Burns slow, lots of body and high quality tobacco. They are definitely higher quality than Djarum blacks (which are good) but these are better. These do have a bubblegum smell to them in the pack. Sweet tipped filter. Wonderful mini kretek. About the same size as a king size
regular cigarette. Will be getting again!!

First off, super fast shipping and any questions I had were answered very fast by CiggiesWorld. The cloves themselves are amazing! I was used to the old Bali Hai cigarettes but these are the best replacement IMHO. I was used to the cigar versions of the Bali but these ones are much much better!

Great product, and I didn't even have to pay duty in Canada!
Posted by Wendy Cooper on 19th May 2015
My order, which never arrived, due to thieves at the Post Office, was handled by this company, by replacing my order. I highly recommend doing business with this company! They honor their word.
Posted by TC on 9th Mar 2015
There's not much more or different, that I can add to what everyone else has already said. These are great, top notch in all ways to evaluate a kretek.
Posted by Unknown on 3rd Mar 2015
I have been smoking clove for 15 years, and hands down this is the best tasting. They are strong, but after smoking these, I cannot go back to Djarum black.
Posted by Nita on 23rd Jan 2015
I really enjoyed these. The smell definitely had a bubble gum scent to it. Very sweet with the perfect taste of clove. I really liked these mainly because the tobacco flavor wasn't so prominent. The fruity flavors and clove really shines through. I would definitely buy these again. I am an old school Djarum Specials enthusiast who switched to cherry Djarum since the ban. I think these and the super give me that Djarum special nostalgia
The shipping was like ordering within the states. I'm in Chicago, Illinois. All hail Ciggiesworld!

When you hear the name "Gudang Garam," what do you think about?
To some, nothing. Others, maybe some foreign dish? But to the elite, Gudang Garam is the King of Kreteks, the sweet, clove, spice and tobacco filled cigarettes that the cool kids, hipsters and sophisticated smoke.
And the best of them would have to be the Professionals.
The Professionals are the golden standard of kreteks. And no, I'm not calling them standard. Not befitting of the name at all. But what I mean is, THESE are what kreteks should taste like.
When you open the pack, your nose is immediately greeted by a wonderful potpourri of spices, lead on by the king of spices, clove. The filter is coated with a bold flavor of sweet spice, akin to a Juicy Fruit, but more pronounced. And when lit up, the rich tobaccos, cloves and spices combine into the most haunting flavor ever possible. But to be simple, it is sweet, bold, refined, pure.
And if you enjoy blowing rings, the thick, blue-ish smoke will be more than enough for you.
If you must smoke a kretek, smoke a Professional.

Highly enjoyable. Sweet, crackling Kretek. I highly recommend over Djarum if you want a longer lasting experience.
Posted by Unknown on 2nd Nov 2014
Love these cigs!!Their sweetness just delivers a pleasurable smoke every time.None better.
Posted by Selectivity on 1st Sep 2014
This cigarette has strong flavours. A slightly harsh tobacco without a lot of nuances, with a bit of the old, pleasant 1990s Marlboro "catch in the throat". The kretek flavour is simple but very bold, and also not like the kretek flavour of any other cigarette I have tried so far. Nice crackling and a sweetened filter paper top it off. This cigarette is yet another wholly unique kretek.
GG Professional is no longer than a regular cigarette, and is just a tiny bit slimmer. This means that it doesn´t last quite a long as the bigger kreteks, though much longer than Marlboros, etc.
Reading the other reviews, I almost think that the GG Profs were redesigned just before I ordered mine, but everyone´s taste is different. Again, I don´t know any other kretek quite like this one. It wasn´t perfect for me, but still very interesting, very good and I really enjoyed trying it out. You should try it too, it may well be a five-star cigarette for you.
Ciggies World are of course perfect. Speed, efficiency, solid packaging and reliability is what you get with them - probably the best online company.

I am so glad to be able to get these again! These are my absolute favorite Kretek ever! So fruity and smooth and the sauce leaves your lips tasting heavenly.

Packaging : paquet classique / cigarettes de taille classique / couleur classique
Odeur : trés sucrée (malabar ou barbe à papa)
Gout : filtre trés sucré laissant un goût agréable sur les lèvres / dosage parfait tabac-girofle / léger côté "euphorisant"
Fumée : sucrée / pas vraiment tabac / moyennement épaisse
Durée : une dizaine de 10 minutes
Elles sont parfaites pour une soirée.
Ciggiesworld : réponses au mail, envoie en France rapide (<1 mois), avec suivi, sécurisé, et discret (pas de douanes). Le TOP !

This does not taste pungent but a little like juicy fruit gum. Would have easily given 5 if it could fit regular filter tips, it was that good.
Posted by Lawrence on 11th Mar 2014
Upon opening, there is a unique fresh aroma of cloves, chocolate and orange essence. The filter is sweet and firm. The first draw one notices the fullness of flavor without burn to the tongue; extraordinarily smooth. For a full-flavor, regular clove, this may be the best there is.

i live in Sydney, Aus.
Service was great! They emailed me about how many ciggs I'll be charged for, warned me about possible charges etc. helped me a lot figuring out how many I can actually buy!
Packing was top notch. I thought the ciggs got crushed but it was just the TWO boxes they packed my ciggs in that were squished and the ciggs were in perfect condition!
The Cig: If you like Sampoerna Mild, this one is a more stronger version of it, stronger in the sense that the aroma and taste of it is not the tobacco.
Posted by Alan Chapman on 11th Feb 2014
I have purchased these, and received a prompt shipment (Only hold up was at Australian Customs.
I have ordered before and had no problems, thoroughly recommend using this supplier ! I even emailed a question, and receibed a prompt reply regarding my order, very professional.
Posted by Crapnell Gates on 9th Jan 2014
A truly glorious smoke. I ordered several different Kreteks and these were my favorite. All of them were great and arrived in perfect condition, but these truly put the American cloves to shame. I smoked the American Djarum Bali Hais and Specials for awhile, these Professionals are the genuine article and put the american versions to absolute shame. Thanks Ciggiesworld, very happy to have found you guys.
Posted by Rachmaninov on 18th Sep 2013
Great kretek! Opening the pack, it smells like confectionery, or banana flavoured ice cream. The draw is smooth and the body is fantastic. Much better that a-milds which have too much tobacco taste.
Thanks ciggiesworld for another smooth and pleasant transaction!
Posted by Hebi on 21st May 2013
This kretek cigarette taste is really something else. I got to say it doesnt taste like tobacco nor clove at all, it taste more like banana flavor baby food in very draw, im not kidding around. its not my kind of cigarette but its still a good cigarette believe it.
Posted by DTREE on 9th Aug 2012
The cigs decent strength and have unique somewhat fruity taste kinda like juicy fruit gum. Very subtle tobacco taste and smell which suprised me unlike a-milds tht u can smoke indoors with no cig odor atall. Pretty solid and long burning- but if you want pure clove flavor like djarum it might not be for you.
Posted by Saville on 8th Apr 2012
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.
Posted by Kashmir on 8th Apr 2012
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 Gudangs, they burn sloooooowwwwwwwly for your smoking pleasure. Oh yeah, they will f^$% you up too. Excellent cigs.
