"Rough Cohiba knockoff"

Review Notes: Unlike any Cohiba I ever had, this stick was part of a sampler. I had a less than stellar experience with another JR Alternative product so my expectations were low. Firm construction with a decent looking wrapper. Burned fairly even with a good draw and didn't need a touch-up. A nice peppery taste with hints of wood. The stick had some kick for its small size. No harshness, just a little rough around the edges. Some humidor time should cure the roughness. This could be a hidden treasure trove of enjoyment with the exceptional price. I'll need to make some room for these and look for an opportunity to add them to my long term storage rotation. This alternative may not be that close to a Cohiba Robusto in flavor, however there's something there worth exploring at the nearly a-buck-a-stick price.

Review Notes: Let me start by saying I am a big fan of JR Alt's but this batch was nearly unsmokeable. I'd be reluctant to try them again...but hey, maybe I just got a bad bundle. The JR Alt to Padron 1964s are Great!

Review Notes: I had to add a few lines about this cigar. Time in the humidor has done nothing but enhance the taste of this very good stick at an amazing buck a piece. Itís never going to make the top tier of cigardom but the more I smoke very good robustos the more I appreciate these guys. They have become one of my favorite gars! Time has added a sweet smoothness to the cigar and the ash is tight and white. JR has made a good product. Give them a shot!

"What a surprise"

Review Notes: I tried a JR Alternative maybe 14 years ago and didnít think much of it. On a whim and because in general I donít like to pay top dollar for good wine or cigarsÖgave this a whirl. The experiment did not disappoint me. It has a smooth peppery taste that I like and is medium bodied. The burn is right on and draw equal to the burn. My favorite sticks tend to have a great aroma. This is not as good as some but for a buck a stick, I ainít gonna complain. If you are looking for a good everyday smoke that wonít put you in the poor house, give this well rounded robusto a try. Note: I have smoked about 25 of these guys and have had a few where the draw was n, less than desirable. Again, for a buck throw the bad ones out and keep on smoking.

Review Notes: I can't imagine a better cigar at this price! It is very flavorful (med-full) and very consistent. Burns even and it has a nice draw. Creamy and a lot of cedar notes. It is build like a premium with a nice cap (unlike Rosa Cuba, Trinidad & CIA or La Habanera!)...I have been buying this brand lately for my every day pleasure and it has not disappointed me! U Can't go wrong with the Cohiba, Hoyo Epicure, JR Ultimate, St. Luis Rey Regios or any other JR Alternative! If you are reading this and have not try them, U R missing out in a wonderful inexpensive smoke! :o)
