Description

Kreteks are cigarettes in which tobacco is blended with cloves and other flavorings.[1] The Marlboro Mix 9 is the strongest Marlboro currently on the market, packing 1.8 milligrams of nicotine and 30 milligrams of tar. That is comparable to other full-strength kreteks on sale in Indonesia, and contains twice as much tar and nicotine as regular Marlboros on sale elsewhere in the world.[1]
Kreteks were invented in the late 19th century to ward off disease and are named for the crackling sound they make when they burn. The "Marlboro Mix 9" Kreteks are a mixture of tobacco, cloves and fruit flavor.[1]

Claims

The eugenol in cloves causes a numbing of the throat in smokers, making harsh tobacco smoke easier to inhale. They are normally sold in packs of 12 and take much longer to smoke than ordinary cigarettes.[1]
