Djarum Special Filter Little Cigars (12)
Djarum Special Filter Little Cigars (12) are machine-made little cigars, proudly manufactured in Indonesia since 1951. Called 'kretek' by locals (referring to the crackling 'kretek kretek' sound they make when burning), their unique blend of tobacco and clove offers a satisfying, inimitable experience for the adventurous smoker. Djarum little cigars are offered in an array of blends and flavors, but one thing is for sure: you'll never forget your first.
I have tried all the cloves and these are the best! They burn slow can last up to 15min. Much better than any average cig! Great aroma that most people enjoy or don't mind to be around. I have been smoking the Specials for over 10yrs daily and I add an extra filter (that comes with about 10 in a pack) on the end from a local pharmacy store to reduce tar and it fits perfectly! Smooth taste doesn't burn actually numbs and the added filter does not reduce the draw or flavor until it is time to switch. The filter also matches the clove brown tone. All the other clove flavors from Djarum are good, but this is the one I stick with. I think it is an eloquent smoke for the ladies as well.
I used to smoke the Specials 10-11 years ago. Since the new law passed about the filters not being flavored, they are still nice, and do still have a slight sweet taste at the tip.
Even though labeled as cigars, they are quiet smooth and full of flavor, that is...for a cigarette. They last twice as long as traditional cigarettes and boast a unique taste on the tongue as well as the lips. For those adventurous smokers this is one that has to be put on the list.
