Sour Notes

Tunneling issues on 07/10/17

Been an avid cigar consumer for decades...Not exactly what I expected. Great bundle for the price, look great but half had tunneling issues. Aside from some with bitter taste, those that burned well had a pretty good taste. Research trends to construction since humidity level was fine and others burned just fine

Nice but inconsistent

Jraike on 06/23/18

Been smoking these for awhile, I love the size an feel of these, but sometimes whole packs are prone to tunneling or other packs are prone to being wrapped too tight and the draw is extremely hard.

Why aren't you buying these?

JB on 06/21/18

I was very nervous to purchase the Limitada Series of Cigars for JR. I made the leap and then worked my way to trying different blends. The Hoyo de Monterey is now my favorite! The gauge and lenght is perfect and can be smoked in about 45 mintues to an hour. A wonderful rich Nicaruaguan tobacco with pepper, nuts and an earthiness. I love the way it stings the end of my tongue right before I light it. I have now, in the last four months, purchased three bundles with more to come as this is now my daily smoke. Thank you JR Cigars.

What happened????

Jpags on 11/21/17

I’ve been smoking these for years and loved them. Over the last year the draw on these cigars have been terrible, I have to use a poker on half the cigars in the bundle. It used to be maybe 1 or 2 tight ones, now it’s always over 10. The cigars that have a good draw taste great, the ones with a tight draw taste awful, it’s a shame, this cigar was as good as any premium cigar out there, I couldn’t wait to sit down and light one up, unfortunately not any more. I have about 2 bundles of these left, when their gone I will not reorder. For over $50.00 a bundle, there’s better choices out there.

Very good

Heywood on 08/06/16

I've tried all the shapes and versions of the Limitada Alts and they are all very good, you just can't go wrong with a purchase of any of them. This particular version has very good balance and is strong but smooth. A very good choice if you want an after-dinner cigar that works well with bourbon. I smoke a lot and it's nice to fine a premium cigar like this at a sensible price.

I tried your own brand for the first time two years ago. Now I have a humidor full of them. One of the smoothest smokes I’ve had. You guys have me hooked!!

Decent smoke

cemptor on 03/04/17

I had never tried these ... surprised as these are good everyday cigars. I find draw and strength a bit inconsistent but not at all bad. I will buy again ...

Not a good even draw and a harsh smoke.

mb2431g on 02/21/17

Not a good even draw and goes out quickly. It becomes very harsh near the end of the smoke . I would not buy this again.

Great Cigar

jpags on 02/09/17

I've been smoking these many years now, and I love them. I'll put them up against any quality cigar I have in my humidor. They are as good as any premium cigar you'll find. In my opinion they taste a lot like the Romeo & Julieta Reserve Maduro. I think the whole line of Edicion Limitada Alternative's are excellent, but these are my favorites. A truly great smoke for the money.

The Edicion Limitada Alternatives are great!

Brucevain on 01/20/19

I think all of the Edicion Limitada Alternatives are absolutely great cigars, including these. Way, way better than many similar strength & flavor cigars around and above this price point. Sure, they aren’t super duper premium, but they’re better than your average everyday cigar by leaps & bounds. Even better if you can find them on sale or in an auction.

Almost great!

Brooklyn terrace smoker on 06/22/16

I really liked the flavor of these cigars, however I had the issue that virtually every cigar's cap came undone and by the end of the cigar, it was much mouth. I'm going back to my Montecristo C knock-off. They have never disappointed.
