Author’s review ” Out of them all Gudang Garams, the Gudang Garam Merah is the best. Solid, hand rolled non-filtered smokes that last about 20mins and have a numbing effect due to the cloves. The scent is way better than any of the kreteks I’ve smoken.”

    These smell delicious, spicy and fruity. A top smelling kretek for sure. Smoke great but can be strong. After taste is bleh like a cigarette which loses a star from me. Regular cig smokers wouldn’t notice I think. I prefer the 76s and dji sam soe so this one is #3 for me.

    I remember the Gudang Garam brand when it was available in my area of the U.S. back in the late 90’s. It was my favorite clove cigarette back then. Tried these, and they have that same GG scent I was looking for. I think I’ll try another GG type next time, but the Merah’s have the flavor I was looking for.

    Goes great with my morning coffee! Has a good hit, not as strong as Dji Sam Soe but certainly stronger than Djarum Blacks or regular clove cigarettes. I usually smoke Sampoerna Milds and smoke unfiltered cloves for those long relaxing afternoons. Well-balanced flavor, not too fruity like the 76. I agree with another reviewer about the cigarette aftertaste in your mouth close to the end. But surprisingly, my hands didn’t have that strong cigarette smell afterwards.

    Not as numbing as the Dji Sam Soe again but still more than the regular kretek. The sweet taste on the paper is very mild. Good for special smokes, you better be a hardcore nicotine addict to smoke these often and regularly. I think it’s hard to compare these to the 76 since the flavor is very different, I’d say even unique since it’s had to name one that comes close. But if you even remotely like kreteks, this is a good one to try. You won’t be disappointed.

    Note about ordering:
    Shipping was faster than I expected. Order was shipped with a tracking number 4 days after I placed it and arrived 10 days after it was shipped. Please add more unfiltered kreteks to your site!!! Thanks!

    I mostly smoke filtered milds and regular strength cigarettes, but of the three unfiltered I’ve tried dji sam soe, Djarum 76 and these Merahs..I liked these the best. Surprisingly smooth and easy. Quite tasty. Yep they do last a long time.

    To me, the second best Kretek. Unfortunately, this time they were a bit dry, but not so the first time I got them.

  7. Adam

    These had a good strong flavor. I liked these quite a bit. I have not developed much of a palate for kreteks, so I am unable to describe much nuance. But these are recommended.
