These will save you money because they are cheaper than other kretek blacks. However they have an extremely weak body (amount of smoke on the exhale). If you are willing to pay a little more then go for the Djarum blacks who's body is very good and the tip is more sweetened than these are. They are a good starter black kretek and alternative to Djarum blacks. Glad I tried them, but will be returning to my favorite kretek blacks and that's the Djarum blacks. You can give these a try by only purchasing one pack. They're still a pretty good little smoke.

To me these are just like Djarum blacks. But much cheaper. So they are a good alternative to the Djarum blacks which I love. But these will save you money. Great flavor and look to them. Slightly sweet tip kreteks. If you've smoke the Djarum blacks then you'll like the Premiex UPS. I'm ordering again. These also don't have any of the horrible cancer pics on the package that some of the other kretek cigs have. So that's a plus as well. Good smoke, I'd highly recommend trying them. You can get a pack just to try out. If you like them then you can order a carton like I did.

This cigarette is extremely similar to my other review of the Neslite Clove cigarettes (by Gudang Garam) The packaging on both of these is the same - Black bock, red writing, open it up - red foil covering some enticing black cigarettes that again, are comparable to a Djarum Black. The flavor was good on these but it had a very weak body, which is most likely enjoyable for smokers who prefer "lights or milds" It was ultimately a good, sweet smoke and ties in with the Neslite cigarette on most aspects.
Flavor - 9/10
Smoothness - 10/10
Body - 4/10
Packaging - 10/10
Would I recommend these to someone? Probably.
Would I buy these again? Probably.
