Djarum Special 5

Ok, I have been a clove smoker for over 20 years. I am actually doing a side by side comparison tonight and have to say that the blacks are much more milder than the special. For my taste, I prefer the special. I smoke cloves for the buzz and the blacks are just too mild for me. I suspect the blacks have less clove and more tobacco which is NOT what I am personally looking for.

These are my favorite Djarum product. The quality of the cloves and the tobacco is very high and the burn is excellent. The taste is much less clovey than that of a Black and it has just the right amount of spice. The buzz is not as good as that of a tobacco only  cigarette, but these are meant to be smoked for the taste and the feeling of calmness. A 4/5.

Everyone prefers Blacks over these but i dont. I personally think these last longer and are smoother. I dont know what people are talking about when they say these dont have the sweet taste on the filter because they do. I recommend these to everyone.

I've smoked various Djarums and these are the least i liked. I mostly smoke Blacks. These have tasteless filters and smoke. I hate to say it but conventional smokes taste better. But Djarums are still the best there is. Blacks, Super, Splash are the best in my opinion.

I generally smoke Blacks, but today when I went to buy a pack they were out, so I ended up getting a pack of the Specials. Believe me, I won't be making that mistake again. The taste and aroma aren't nearly as nice as the Blacks. Not to mention the brown paper isn't as appealing, though it does do a better job at hiding the pinholes in the filter.

These remind me a lot of my favorites - Sampoerna Xtras. I prefer them over Blacks. Blacks tend to dry my throat out way too much.

Djarum Special 4

First off, let me start by saying that these cigarettes smell wonderful. Just opening the box you are greeted with a very sweet and almost candy-like scent. These are a pretty good smoke. They burn a long time, definitely have a distinct look (they are wrapped in a maroon type paper), and have a great taste. Also, they tend to not leave my cigarette hand smelling too bad afterwards. That being said, they do tend to burn your throat a bit if you take too big a drag. But by taking big drags you are able to achieve a bit of buzz, so it's up to you really. While I can't say I recommend these as an everyday smoke (they are a bit expensive and exotic) they are great to have every once in a while. They give you an awesome sense of euphoria. Definitely worth checking out at least.

I think they're good, but not as good as the Black. I got lightheaded with these, and the only thing it doesn't have compared to the Djarum Blacks is the sweet filter paper, but that's ok. I also want to try the Djarum Super, haven't found any yet.

They were ok, don't get me wrong. However they did not compare to the Blacks in terms of looks, taste or buzz. They look silly and the taste is not nearly as great as its onyx counterpart. *I was alternating between these and Newports and gobbed up blood.
