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.
