Why yes I have actually @Salmiak !! I was in Vietnam last Christmas and did try a few of the indigenous cigarette brands. I have two one left in a packet of 'Gudang Garam' left which are a commercial Indonesian Kertek..
These aren't cigarettes in the western sense, though they do look similar and are filtered; they have a lot of clove in there I'd guess maybe 1/3 or so clove in the mix. The production quality is somewhat lacking. They're very strongly flavoured and sweet; although I'm no stranger to strong smokes (Gitanes are my favourites) these are actually tough to finish in one sitting without putting it down for a bit.
I'm going to have to light one now; will report back in a bit....
Yeah, just smoked 1/2 of one; I'd forgotten that the filter is [presumably] impregnated with some kind of sweet clove oil. Overpoweringly sweet and clove, actually give me a little bit of a headache, there's almost some kind of menthol element to them as well, though I suspect that this is all due to the clove. I've remember why I didn't buy more of these, and still had a couple left, really not my thing.
