Djarum 76 Filter Gold.
Djarum 76 is a hand-rolled, filtered cigarette whose recipe for success remains unchanged from its initial launch more than 25 years ago. Djarum 76 is comprised almost entirely of tobacco from the Temanggung area in the highlands of Java, which produce some of the best tobaccos in Indonesia and the world. To this the barest minimum of natural enhancement is added, preserving and bringing out the natural fragrance of the tobacco.
Djarum 76 Filter is the result of a secret, sacred recipe with a history stretching back over 120 years. Made of mature tobacco, top grade Srintil tobacco and a variety of traditional Indonesian spices.
Upon introduction in 1976, Djarum 76 rapidly gained a loyal following throughout Java, Bali, Borneo and Sumatra, particularly East and Central Java and Bali. This classic product continues to enjoy strong sales today, testimony to its enduring taste.
32 mg tar and 1.8 mg nicotine.
12 Kretek Filter. Made by Djarum Kudus, Indonesia.
These were pleasant enough, but the flavor wasn’t strong enough for my taste. A subtle and surprising undertone of cotton candy flavor on these. Smooth airy and very easy to smoke. You could feel the Nicotine and the box states 1.8 mg. Perhaps a nice smoke for someone looking light flavor and a bit stronger nicotine punch.
Ok so first of all, these are 12 to a pack not 16 like the size per pack states. They also contain 1.8 MG of nicotine not 1.6, and concurrently have more tar as well but I’m not sure. But wow are these a kretek. They pack a massive punch and are so smooth.. the flavor is great, very spicy and numbing. I like how they are more of a regular size cigarette compared to most kreteks which are quite slim. The filter is dipped and has a great taste.. these kreteks leave quite a nicotine buzz! these aren’t a kretek i would smoke everyday due to how potent and strong they are, but they are very enjoyable. Probably the spiciest and stronger kretek I’ve ever smoked. its important to note however that they also have a nice sweetness and most of all are extremely smooth. for how strong these are, they are the smoothest cigarette I’ve ever smoked.
Very smooth sweet Kretek. Not a mini, they are a full size kretek. They will not fit in a king size cigarette case, only a 100’s case. Slightly sweet tip very smooth yet powerful taste. Really enjoy them. There are many mini kretek’s out there, this is not one of them. It’s more like a 100 cigarette which I really like. Slow burning, numbing and great flavor! Only 12 per pack due to the size. Yes I’ll be ordering again. Great kretek smoke!!

As a kretek lover, the ’76 is of great balanced flavor. Great sweet to clove & tobacco ratio. Like most from this side of the pond, X-Tra’s were my love, the ’76 is different, but just as sweet, delivering a great blast of clove finely minced, along with the unmistakable Javanese tobacco.
To me the 76 filter gold is like gudang garam signature blacks big brother. Slightly bigger, with more flavor. While its a bit strong to be an all day. Its not harsh and is really good while not being too sweet. Ive yet to try the 76 unfiltered but should be receiving it soon. Ive tried over a dozen different types on this site by now and have yet to find one i dont like but this is definitely one ill remember to buy again.
Compared to the other kreteks I’ve tried (Gudang Guram Internationals, Djarum Super, Djarum Black) the Djarum Gold 76 filters are notably less sweet, with no sweetened filter and a dryer, slightly bitter citrus like aftertaste. Though I enjoy a sweet kretek, these are a great alternative if you’re looking for something less sweet, but which still has that deep, flavorsome quality clove taste.
I have loved the Unfiltered 76s for a long time and this is the first time I have been able to order the filtered. They are and amazing kretek, very smooth with the best clove flavour available. Highly recommend to anyone who loves kreteks!

Smell is incredible as with all clove cigarettes, these were very smooth going down, Would be 5 stars if the cloves were a little bit stronger but overall a very solid smoke

So smooth, sweet.. A true pleasurable experience.
A bit strong in flavor, I got a bit sick of them half way trough but good for die hard clove fans.
These are quite tasty, always enjoy one of these with a coffee.
These are my new personal favourite! They are the most flavourful of all the stronger (filtered) kretek I have tasted yet!

Not quite what I was expecting as I’ve tried the orginial 76 unfiltered and find them to be sweeter and more fruity than these filtered 76 golds. Not to say its a bad smoke but if you are looking for that 76 fruity richness these have about ⅔ or ¾of that. All and all still an enjoyable little smoke. Glad these had a good bit of that ever so loving clove flavor and crackling the whole time.
These kreteks (76’s) are unbelievably tasty !
