    I never thought I would say this, but.....

    I smoked a $1.75 cigar today that truly blew my mind! I've been smoking now now for about 15 years and have come to appreciate a good medium-full bodied stick that, as of lately, cost anywhere from $6-$10! These were my everyday smokes and let me tell you, it gets expensive quick! A buddy of mine at our B&M brought me a stick today and said to try it. I knew the price going in and figured, okay, I'll smoke this dog rocket just to please him.

    Well, I have to say that this cigar was outstanding! It was well constructed, had a great draw, and burned perfectly. The taste was just what I was looking for in a daily smoke. Needless to say, I am buying a couple of bundles of these bad boys! And I can only imagine what a couple of months rest would do to these. So if you're looking for a low priced daily smoke, I definitely recommend JR CUBAN ALTERNATIVES LA GLORIA CUBANA CORONA CIGAR: JRCigars.com

    What a smoke!

    It's it great to find a cheap alternative! Glad you found one that you enjoy and doesn't bust the bank.

    Yup. JR Alternatives are awesome. I remember getting them 10 years ago.

    I have noted that by declaring my likes of certain inexpensive cigars, the curiosity causes a run on the brand and an increase in the cost.

    That said, I am off to buy some JR Alternatives!
    I don't always drink beer,,,

    In that case I'll tell everyone how much I like El Productor and White owl so that while they're buying those I'll be free to finally get my hands on some No.9s!

    When I traveled to NJ frequently I'd always stop at the JR in Parsippany and would always walk out with a couple bundles of their altrenatives. Very decent smokes for low price.

    JR Alternatives are great buys and excellent cigars. It does take some experimentation to find what fits your palate but when you do = it's a home run. Just know that every Alternative is not going to be a hit but don't let that discourage you. They are inexpensive enough to experiment with till you find your "go to".

    PS - my fav so far is the JR CC Alternative Monte #2. Nothing like the real deal but a great golf course cigar!

    I ain't ! I'm just a little large for my size!
