I’m not talking about the ban on clove cigarettes in the US resulting in a change to clove cigars. That’s old news, but lately I’ve been getting these Djarum Black cloves with paper that is not flat black. It’s a lighter shade of black and appears to have specks of some kind in it. The overall taste is not as strong.
Here in Vermont there are only a few places that sell these and all have sold me these same odd looking cloves. Why are these different?
