Author's comment "The Gudang Garam Surya brand has a slightly different taste to Gudang Garam Professional/International. When you first light up this cigarette, you will notice that the clove taste is rather strong compared to the other Gudang Garam variant. The crackle from the cloves burning in the cigarette is louder too as the cloves in this Gudang Garam are not as finely ground. (You can actually see some of the cloves in the cigarette itself.) About halfway through some of the cigarettes, I got a slightly unpleasent after taste, but maybe that's bad luck. Overall they are good, other than this flavour, I would recommend trying Gudang Garam International even though it's a bit more expensive."

I've been smoking the shit, they where selling in Germany as "Gudang Garam" for years now. Since they are forbidden, I smoke the original Surya again. What a difference in tast!

Full of flavor, burns slow and even.

I was hoping that the flavour is more long lasting. Once you light it, a strong smell fills your smoking appetite then the rest of the smoking experience tastes bland... uhm.

These Kreteks are the best of the best! They are a full flavored clove cigarette with a smooth mellow flavor. The smoking experience is enhanced by a delightful aftertaste.

I absolutely love this cigarette. I wouldn't recommend smoking it more than 4 times a day because of the amount of tar though. In moderation, this cigarette is amazing.

I cant live without these GG. Have been smoking them since 2003.
They delivered to the States fairly quick, and just in time before my own stock ran out.
If travelling, will definitely buy from this site again!

Nice smoke with a nice crackle of kretek, love the strong and full clove flavor.
Great start of the evening with a Kopi tubruk and a GG.

Gudang Garam Surya 16 is pure quality. Rich, full, smooth, and balanced, it has sweetness, spiciness and a flavour that is what I have come to view as the GG flavour. This flavour is present in GG Surya 16, GG Professional and GG Signature Black, presented in different ways and with different accents in each of those cigarettes. GG Surya 16 doesn´t have the very high sweetness of a Signature Black, nor the over-the-top powdered sugar taste of a GG Surya 16 Exclusive, but is still sweet. As soon as I lit my first Surya 16, it was obvious that it is a five-star Gudang Garam. However, the GG flavour doesn´t sit entirely right with me: it is great, but just not the optimum taste for me. GG Surya 16 Exclusive (which doesn´t have that much of the GG taste), Djarum 76 and of course, the one and only Djarum Super, all suit me better. But there is no denying the greatness of this cigarette, and everyone who has ever appreciated a kretek should try Surya 16. If not for Djarum Super and GG Surya 16 Exlusive, this would definitely be the main kretek for me (76 is unfiltered, and so I don´t want that as main). Again, Gudang Garam Surya 16 is a top quality cigarette, and without a doubt, a five-star smoke.

These cloves are amazing! Jeff, the customer service rep for the US, is on top of things. The first shipment that was delivered was incorrect (Marlboro Ice Blasts came instead of the cloves?!). Jeff let me keep those and resent my cloves the next day.

if you are looking for a strong kretek, this one is for you, its like marlboro red of the kretek world. it has some harshness but pretty smooth at the same time. i only wish the smoke had a bit more sweetness. overall a good cigarette.

Excellent rich flavor. Strong but very smooth and tasty. First one of the day gives a good buzz and great to end the day with, long drives, burns for 20mins. Crackles and pops like a firecracker, burned a couple holes in my clothes but I can't stop smoking it. The best cigarettes, must try! Customer service is great too!
Posted by Brett on 14th Apr 2014
Great taste but a little bit harsh. I will buy these again.

The best cigarets on the world!..Perfect Clove flavour.Thanks
Posted by SamKretek on 23rd Oct 2013
As a lover of Kreteks, I think these cigs are on point. Very strong, very potent flavor, and EXTREMELY enjoyable! I always hate to comment on exact flavor since I see it as something subjective to the individual smoker, but one thing that can not be doubted is the Surya 16s status as a true Kretek as far as taste goes. If you're like me and you want a strong smoke at the end of the day, or a strong smoke to get you up and going with your coffee, these work either way. Strong and full clove flavor, fantastic body, and incredible buzz. Not for everybody, but these 100% do it for me!

As mentioned by DTREE, these can be quite harsh on the throat. However, these firm kreteks can be made milder and smoother to draw by simply rolling the ciggie in your hands until the stick becomes softer and less firm.
This is what I would recommend for those trying kreteks for the first time.
Posted by Stefan on 3rd Jun 2013
Many Thanks again for the great cigarette! I am a lucky Customer from Germany! :)
Posted by DTREE on 22nd Mar 2013
I was a little dissapointed with the Suryas, they failed to live up to the juicy fruit like sweetness of the professionals. They had a bitter underlying tobacco taste that the clove failed to suppress. They were much harsher than I thought on the throat and I ended up butting them halfway and smoking the rest later alot of the time. That being said the service and delivery was phenomenal. Had em in my hand within a week. Just jaw droppingly professionalism.

These are definitely my favorite filtered kreteks. They taste so much like unfiltered kreteks that it's remarkable. These have a very similar taste and smell to Merahs, but they are a bit sweeter. The smoke is fairly smooth, and these are very easy to chain smoke. They always seem to give me a pretty intense buzz. They smell incense-like when smoked, like the Merahs. I love these because of how strong the cloves are, and how pure they taste for having a filter. On an unrelated note, I was a little taken back by how large the packs are. These cigs are a bit longer than regular GG filtered cigs.

Ever since I had my first kretek I loved their flavor and aroma. Soon after discovering clove cigarettes (kretek) I found the Gundang Garam Surya. Theese have been my favorite kretek for about 10 years. These simply surpass the rest in flavor, smell, smoothness, looks, and the crackle sound while smoking. These leave the sweet clove taste on your lips and somewhat numb your mouth, just as cloves should. I always especially liked the white paper used (much like Djarum Super). I recommend these to anyone who likes kreteks.

I like your site, and I like the ability to pay with a credit card rather than jump through innumerable hoops to pay.
