If you're looking for classic Cuban taste without landing yourself in the slammer, then we suggest the J·R Cuban Alternative line. Save a few bucks while getting some good smokes that are handmade with top-quality long-filler tobaccos, and available in so many styles. These cigars will help you fill your humidor without emptying your bank account... or giving you a criminal record. Try them; you won't be disappointed.

JR CUBAN ALTERNATIVE TO RAMON ALLONES NO. 1

Steve Nathan, Training Manager

Ramon Allones is one of my favorite Cuban cigars... so how does the J·R Alternative compare? Well, honestly, you can tell the difference. But if you want to avoid being detained by customs, this is a pretty damn good Cuban-style cigar. They're beautifully constructed and have an earthy Havana-style flavor. The dark ligero filler tobaccos add a nice spicy kick that most full-bodied-cigar lovers have come to appreciate. If we didn't set the goal so high by using the word "Cuban", you would be quite pleased with this densely packed and very flavorful smoke. I have smoked many other Cuban Alternatives and they are all top-quality, full-bodied smokes that really nail it with Cuban characteristics. And with all the money you'll save by smoking these, you'll have enough cash left over to pay the hefty customs fine if you're caught trying to smuggle in the real ones!

Today is Saturday. Yesterday, I received my box of COHIBA BEHIKE LAGUITO NO. 6. Ive been an aspiring cigar man since 2008. Perhaps the best cigar Ive had was an authentic Cohiba Habana Cuba. In my humidor I have Romeo Y Julietta, Avo Yuvezian, and a few other well known/respected brands. So, it was a gamble for me when I ordered this alternative. So, here I sit early on a Saturday morning on my back brick porch. Birds singing, sun rising and my favorite cup of piping hot French Roast coffee. As I unwrap the cigar Im pleased at its girth and length, realizing Ill be here for at least 45 minutes or more. As I cut this beast there was nothing sloppy about it. Just a nice surgical and clean cut. I hold it several inches away from my 5 jet torch and get the tip fire red - like a cherry, then take one puff with the flame. A full draw and mouth full of wonderful smoke. It doesnt bite, it doesnt offend. It is a very pleasant compliment to my coffee and I sit back to enjoy a fabulous cigar. When I think ahead to my favorite cigar moments, and this is one, I cant wait to treat myself and others to this wonderful smoke while playing golf. This is a great cigar - and I guess the secret is out..
