Quaily is Slipping

FloridaAl on 04/01/15

Limited Edition series used to be perfection itself. However, lately the quality has slipped in the Limitada Alternatives series. 4 or 5 cigars with junk filler in these "Montecristo Edmundo" cigars. Some burn lop-sided with poor draw. Same thing has happened to "Cohiba Behike Laquito #5." I love this series but it's time to get on a quality-control kick, JR.

For Everyday, Can't Be Beat

Very well made, consistent, and tasty - spicy and smooth, semi-sweet finish. For an everyday cigar, it can't be beat.

Big Ring

Big and Beefy on 03/22/15

I like a big ring cigar and considering the price, these are exceptional. They burn even and cool lasting a good 90 minutes. That's as good as it gets!

EdmundoCuban on 06/07/15

Very good cigar, but, to compare these to the MC EDMUNDO is a stretch. You can smoke the real thing till it buns your lips...these are done @ 3/4 burned and... one is almost happy it is.

AJT on 06/11/15

This is a well constructed cigar that is a good daily smoke for the cost. I have added this to my list of favorite cigars I order. I have smoked JR ALTERNATIVE cigars for a number of years and this is one of the better ones that I've used.

JR Limitada - strong and flavorful

Matt BP on 10/10/15

These are a remarkably tasty and full flavored cigar. The construction is good and a LOT of smoke cloud. It actually surprised me with the flavor and strength for an "alternative" cigar. You cannot go wrong on these for only a little over $2.00 per cigar.

Does JR post bad reviews?

Lucky on 07/18/16

I like the flavor of this cigar, but the construction and quality are not good. I can't get a single one to burn properly. Contestant relights, canoeing, etc. To much work to enjoy. Way overpriced when you factor in the quality. I'll look elsewhere next time. P.S. It appears that JR does not post negative reviews. This is my second attempt at reviewing. The first one was the same and not posted.

90+

Roaddog on 12/30/15

These cigars are my new davorite. Who'd of thought a non name brand could blow others out of the water. Big ring, great spicy bold flavor. The price is unbeatable too. Smoke for close to 90 minutes. Long ash nicely made and even burn. Not a beginner cigar because it will bite. Love them.

Not for me.

Pap on 03/24/16

Maybe this is just not the type cigar for me. But this is the worst cigar I have ever smoked. The wrapper tasted terrible before I even lit the cigar, and I had to smoke it outside because I had to spit from the very first draw. Just a terrible taste for me . They also made me a little lightheaded, and I don't inhale. Based on the reviews, however, it must be a personal thing. I ordered these because of the high ratings they had received. I am not new to cigars. I have been smoking them for over 30 years. I tried 5 of them, thinking maybe the first one was a dud. But they were all the same.

Fantastic smoke

Mr.D on 06/08/15

I tried the behike JR alternative and though similar this smoke has a slight edge over the other because it is smoother. The price of these smokes are low considering the quality tobacco they are constructed with. I'm an avid smoker and this is a must have in my humidor. A true cigar smoker can easily appreciate it, try a 5 pack for yourself and you be the judge.

A JR Alternative home run

Cigarsmkr1 on 09/02/15

Consistent construction every time. Quality is superb. Easy draw, burns evenly and flavor is full-bodied but not extremely heavy. Value for a bundle is spot on. You only go right by choosing the JR Alternative Montecristo Edmundo.

I have smoked about 6 out of my bundle so far and not a single one has burned properly. The flavor is good, but constantly having to touch up and relight a cigar takes quite a bit of enjoyment out.

This is my daily go to cigar. I judge others against this and few come close in the price range. I don't have the pallet to describe all the nuances of this cigar, I just know what I like. I have had some problems with burn, draw and construction but not often. I would recommend people give this a try.
