Sadly, Sampoerna 234 Magnum Blue was a disappointment for me. The tar/nic values above (2.3 mg nic and 33 mg tar) are wrong. The correct values are 1.0 mg nic and 18 mg tar. It is also a slim, which I don´t like, and I think the paper is slightly thicker, maybe to give stability. In taste and smoking experience, it is very much like Dji Sam Soe Magnum Filter, but toned down and muted in the important areas. Still sweet, still smokey, still that fairly unique (when writing this, I have tried fifteen different kreteks, and DSS MF certainly has its own identity) spice/kretek/marshmallowy smooth richness, but lessened considerably. This is a good, tasty cigarette, but at the same time, DSS MF does what this does, and three times richer, fuller and more satisfying. I would choose smoking half a DSS MF, putting it out, and smoking the other half later, over smoking one of these.
I´ll point out once more that slims in general just don´t work very well for me, although Premiex Coffee and Premiex Green Tea were pleasant surprises. It may be that you like slims over regular or thick cigarettes, and in that case I would recommend these. They will probably be very impressive to someone who has yet to try a kretek. A quality smoke then, but pointless for me.
