Author’s comment “The Gudang Garam Surya brand has a slightly different taste to Gudang Garam Professional/International. When you first light up this cigarette, you will notice that the clove taste is rather strong compared to the other Gudang Garam variant. The crackle from the cloves burning in the cigarette is louder too as the cloves in this Gudang Garam are not as finely ground. (You can actually see some of the cloves in the cigarette itself.) About halfway through some of the cigarettes, I got a slightly unpleasent after taste, but maybe that’s bad luck. Overall they are good, other than this flavour, I would recommend trying Gudang Garam International even though it’s a bit more expensive.”
Surya exclusive are very good cigarettes as are all the surya brands! However due to the idiotic and incompetent Australian government and their stupid plain packaging laws, I can’t get the only decent quality cigarettes that I smoke here! With their import duty tax on goods, their hidden taxes and then their gst on top of that, they truly are criminal bastards!
First of all let me tell you, the shipment was awesome. BIG THANKS, 15 days from the day I placed the order and the package was here in Portugal.(with regular mail option)
Secondly, the product, it is really cool but I gave 4 starts as it was a little bit too sweet for me.
Gudang Garam Surya Exclusive’s were, frankly, a bit of a let down. It feels like GG were trying too hard to make a Djarum Super-like product with this one, and the results are not necessarily bad, but just a bit weird for my personal taste.
Taste and preference differ from person to person, so give it a try and decide for yourself. I didn’t find them particularly strong, despite the 1.8mg Nicotine/30mg Tar label, however, these cigarettes have that unique kretek flavour and characteristics (strong body, spicy flavour, loud crackle when puffed,) making this a cigarette you should definitely try.
For someone who grew up smoking GG Surya 16’s (which are uniquely strong, flavoursome GG smokes), I now prefer GG Professional’s, GG Surya 16’s, and Djarum Super’s. GG Surya Exclusive, in my opinion, doesn’t quite have that familiar flavour of the unique GG taste present in GG Professionals and Surya 16’s, which is why it doesn’t do the job for me. Give it a try though if you want, and decide for yourself!
Also, big shoutout to Jeffrey from CiggiesWorld, who was kind enough to accommodate me and my shipping requirements during a troubled time a few weeks back. Forever grateful to you Sir! Keep up the excellent work!
These are very literally sweet. While the taste may not be as complex as a super… Its way smoother and has a really good unique taste. Might in fact be the sweetest all around that ive ever tried. I couldnt make up my mind about these at first but after smoking a couple im definitely loving them. Most kreteks or any cigs with a sweet or dipped filter you lick ur lips a couple times and then its gone but for some reason these stay sweet even smoked down to the end. Maybe the filter is made of candy or pure sugar, idk ill write another review after I try to eat a filter. Seriously though if you like a sweet full flavor kretek and havent tried these you are cheating yourself.
Ciggiesworld is cheating me out of all my money by selling all these great things been a customer for about two plus years… i got my favorites i try to get with every order and then i got so many i want to try. Because of that ive made 5 big orders past two months!!! Arg… thanks for reeling in this compulsive buyer!!!

Nice and strong with a great flavor! These are great – they have that classic Gudang Garam flavor turned up to 11.

Somewhat sweeter than their regular counterparts, but still too harsh for most people I shared them with. I would purchase the Djarum Super over these.
Spencer B. –
I just like it stronger but these are a great medium flavor if that is your taste.
Anthony Seneck –
These are good wish I could give it more of a 3.5 or 3.75 star but don’t want to put it at 4 stars. Its a good smoke just im not sure if it was just my pack or because of the size of the cloves but when smoking these I noticed the clove flavor wasn’t as big as I was expecting probably the least out of the GG’S I’ve tried (Surya, professional, Surya exclusive, international and the unfiltered king-size premium). The original Surya seems to have more of the clove flavor and taste than the exclusive still worth a try.
