Review Notes: A decent cigar this size for a buck is a good value. A rather light shade of brown with a slight hint of green, sort of a cross between a claro and a Colorado color. A few thin veins here and there. A good roll and draw, especially for a bargain priced dollar cigar. Burn is slightly uneven at points, but not enough to cause problems. Nice and smooth, mild to medium body. Started off with some rather strong "classic Nicaraguan flavors," coffee and nuts and chocolate. Then about 2 inches into the burn, developed some very nice complex leather, and the Nicaraguan flavors went into the undertone traits. Approaching the mid-way burn point, still tastes good, the tobacco flavor is starting to kick in. Still has a big leathery overtone. Still has a nice and smooth, medium body. Now approaching 2/3 point, leather's still there, and some tangy espresso. Still a nice smooth body. I have already gotten well over a dollars worth, anything I smoke further than 3/4 is just a bonus. Some final thoughts ... it's not a Padron. There are a few inconsistancies here and there, but for a buck per stick (bundle price,) you can't go wrong. There are also some specials run on these JR Alts occasionally. Good for bargain hunters, or someone like me that smokes lots of cigars. They help me maintain some semblance of a cigar budget. I can smoke an occasional cheapie that isn't a total piece of dog doo. I would really like to score 7 1/2 each for flavor and experience, but since that option is not available, I will split the difference and score the flavor 7 and experience at 8, because it was a nice smooth body. A very fine value.
