Marlboro Kreteks/Marlboro Mix 9
From Tobacco Products
Kreteks are cigarettes in which tobacco is blended with cloves and other flavorings.
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.
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.
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.
