Value in an every day cigar

justmy2cents on 04/26/15

Good everyday cigar. Good value. I find that the flavor improves dramatically after "purging."

Too strong for me

DaveinSC on 03/09/15

Nicely made, good easy draw. But too harsh and bitter for me, and doesn't really mellow out.

Mr. Blaze on 03/16/15

Good construction, Harsh starting halfway. My biggest disappointment is that I got a pack of 20 and smoke 4 so far and all have had cracking and uneven draw issues. I had them in my humidor for two weeks before trying some I keep my cigars at 65to68 RH and 70 or less degrees. All my other smokes smoked perfect so I know it was the cigars that gave me a probable

Mouse on 05/26/15

"JR Edicion Liitada Alternative to Cuban Cohiba Behike Laguito No. 5", strong, spicy, not at all bitter, even burn, all one could ask for in a $2.50 cigar :-) Must have received a good bundle.

kuzz on 04/25/15

sometimes i would rate this smoke with some of the best, but it seems every other bundl there is a problem, uneven burn,draw, or construction.When its right I would give it a 90 rating all around.

One good, One Bad

RichInTN on 03/11/15

I've smoked only two so far. The first was good, but the second was so bad I put it out after less than five minutes. It makes me wonder what sort of quality control there is regarding what goes into these smokes.

Dissapointment

nitehawk48 on 03/09/15

The bundle I received as a special offer at $29.95 was inferior. They burn unevenly, the wrappers have come loose and they are too loosely rolled. The price was fair for what I got but I would not order this cigar again nor would I recommend them. Judging from other reviews, I must have got one of the bad bundles.

Mac on 03/29/15

A good everyday smoke if you like more full than medium....especially toward the end. Maybe 1 in every 10 burns uneven, takes a little TLC ...still the price is right.

Good for the price

John H on 04/20/15

Okay, it's not a Behike, I've had Behikes and they're great cigars. But his is a good cigar for the money. Yep, it's fairly full bodied, but that's what I like. The flavor is also nice; I don't find it a bitter at all as some note in their reviews. Sorry I can't give a flavor profile like you see in reviews where a cigar is compared various nuts, fruits and sundry other elements found in nature, but I do know when a cigar is harsh, bitter, hot and generally unpleasant. I didn't find any of those things in this cigar and I'm on my second bundle. Is it a 5 out 5? Maybe only for price, but it's easily a 4 for what it is; a full flavored, throw-in-your-golf-bag cigar.

A good all around smoke

Jerome J on 06/11/15

As you will note, I've brought these before and will always keep some on hand. They are a good go to cigar. In some ways better than some name brands. They smoke like a full body cigar with a nice draw, good construction. Not so much in flavor. But all in all a good smoke.

Ralph S. on 09/07/15

Listen to Lew Rothman when he talks cigars!! He was 'spot on' about this cigar. Good as they get for less money and if they sit in your humidor , they just keep getting better. John H. on 4/20/15 was very correct review.just what i wanted to say.

you better buy a bundle

HudsonValleyBradHorn14 on 04/11/15

Strong flavors with a medium to full body, the Behike 5 alternative delivers coffee, creamy, peppery, and balanced flavors with a medium finish of nuts and leather. this cigar is a mid day to evening cigar for most. Letting this cigar sit in humidor to settle is a must, and ages brilliantly 2mo to 5yr is the magic aging ttime, delivering more pepper and sound the younger it is, with the more dessert and sweet notes between 3 and 5 years.

not consistent

kenjoe on 08/14/15

for a long time i thought these a good deal. the bundles would routinely contain 3 or 4 bad sticks but that was o k considering price. recently several bundles have contained nasty, bitter-tasting cigars with too many bad-burning, poorly constructed sticks . i have been a JR customer for many years and will continue so, however i will no longer buy these particular cigars. had i submitted a review only not long ago, it would have been very different in compliment. inconsistent product is not, for me, acceptable. my ratings are based on the bundle as a whole. some sticks remain good, some very good.

Good Every Day Smoke

Warren Miller on 10/27/15

Good every day smoke. I smoke 4-5 cigars daily and this one always makes the list. I also smoke the #4, which seems more consistent, but I like this one when I have the time for a long smoke. Not quite the real Behike #5, but close enough for the price. The past few bundles have had a few poor, inconsistent burning sticks, but overall, a solid cigar.

good but not a cohiba

lorenm2 on 07/31/15

I have had the real behike and the flavour on this is not close. The real one is leather and cream. This one is more cedar and nuts. That being said I love this stick for the price. By its self it has a soft start and by 2 inches in gets quite strong and tasty. Have had 4 out of my bundle I put them in 10 days ago at 75% and they swelled nice and got better every day. Good smoke but not the real deal. Will stay a staple in my collection for some time.

Good Cigar

Greg on 02/25/15

The 5's develop a much better taste as they burn down the body. I like a complex tasting cigar that isn't bitter and these Laguito's are exactly that. As with all bundle cigars, there will be a few in the bunch that aren't perfect. But, for the price they are a very good deal.

These are a big let down

RMyrvold on 07/06/15

I ordered two bundles of these because I like the larger #6 so well and thought these would be just as good but not take an hour to smoke. I was wrong, because these are pain in the butt to try to smoke. They are rolled way to tight to get a draw. You have suck on them until your eyes roll back into your head. Then they start burning very uneven which is also a pain. Maybe I just got a bad lot of these that were made by inexperienced roller. I don't know but will not order again in the near future. Taste wise they are good, but just to hard to smoke.
