Why would you buy some crappy seconds when, for a lot less money, you could buy J•R Alternatives instead? All of these cigars are long-filler, handmade firsts rolled at the best factories, sans the fancy boxes and bands. We have them made in humongous quantities and then pass along the savings to smokers. For over a quarter of a century, these have been the very best value in the whole cigar world!
JR ALTERNATIVE TO DOMINICAN MONTECRISTO NO. 2
First off, these are an amazing bargain. I have dabbled in further aging them and found that the taste just like the real deal. That being said, most of us want a cigar we can smoke right away and I have to say that, right out of the bundle, these beautifully constructed figurados displayed a smooth, creamy taste and a surprising amount of complexity. Granted, they aren't as pretty or as well aged as the real Montes but you are still getting a great smoke that can easily compete with many other cigars costing twice as much. This is a great all-day smoke that leaves you with enough cash in your pocket to splurge on a box of the originals for those special occasions.
