Very Good Cigar

BMDFM on 03/18/15

A friend of mine from work gave me one of these to try and I liked it enough to pick up a bundle. I find them to be a bit harsh upon first lighting up but that quickly disappears and it turns into a very enjoyable smoke. I have never had the real deal to compare this with but for the cost, I will continue to have some of these of hand. Also, I had a few I set aside to see how they were after some time passed and I found them to just keep getting better and better. Highly recommended!

Great Smoke for Price

Socks on 04/07/15

I have purchased these cigars in three separate orders (and plan to continue to purchase more in the future). In the Montecristo Edmundo, the JR Edicion Limitada Alternative is an excellent cigar for the price. It has nothing overly complex in flavor, but it is consistently a smooth and tasty. It also has reasonably consistent construction and burns sharply with a proper light. These are a great go to option for a casual cigar smoker, or if you are on a budget.

Mike M on 03/18/15

Of the two I've tried, other than a very hard draw and nearly fireproof, there not much else I can say. I really expected better considering the positive reviews.

Scotty90293 on 10/14/15

Everyone's tastes are different but after smoking my 5 Pack I found theses to be very much to my liking. I've been looking for a good daily smoke for as inexpensive of a price as possible and these are it for now.

Excellent

Mr. D on 12/14/14

The smoke and wrapper is so consistent, the cigar is smooth all the way through. They are well rolled cigars that came ready to smoke straight from the box. Honestly, I purchase smokes from many different cigar websites, but none can match this price for what is a premium smoke.

NOT REALLY

These smokes burn unevenly WHEN you can get them lit! They have an inconsistent and often difficult draw. I know they are inexpensive but I expect much better from a JR poduct

memgim on 09/30/15

This is a great cigar. It's marketed as a Montecristo Alternative. I'm pretty sure you can take the band off and pass it as a Montecristo. It's that good! I'm a big fan of JR for the quality of service and selection. This is a very high quality cigar.

I would say these are similar to the Cohiba Behikes but I prefer the Cohibas more for some reason. They seem to burn better & the flavor is more consistent. I probably won't buy these again.

Notes of cocoa, dark chocolate, and some cream. JR Alternative or not, this is a superior cigar, the value is just a bonus. Was gifted a 5 pack, and I immediately bought a bundle of 20. Well done JR Cigars, very well done.

TimBush on 07/04/15

This just blew me away--I've been a JR guy since 1994, and having smoked a LOT of JR Alts, this one is by far the most flavorful, well-constructed, and enjoyable sticks that I've ever had from this venerable brand. Really--gonna buy some more.

A High Quality Economical Smoke

Pretty damn good

Bernie on 03/04/16

Loved this smoke, but will only buy if they are $9.99 not the $11+ price. As for the cigar itself, after smoking 20 of these I have found that the flavor is fantastic if you enjoy a full taste. If you enjoy a lighter stick, don't buy these. They are put together pretty good as I had two of the twenty crack at the cap when using a punch, I cut them after the breakage, and smoked away! The draw was always the same with a good amount of smoke and for the most part burned evenly among all 20. I would recommend these overall and will share with my friends.

Not as good as I would have liked

Mastdog on 02/01/16

I purchased this cigar for the price and size. Sadly I got what I paid for. The cigar starts off very harsh, for at least the first half an inch it makes your mouth taste real bad. Then about 60% through it becomes very hard to smoke. Going out often, and then getting a real burnt taste. Not happy at all and would not suggest these to others.

Can't beat it for the price

dancinbear on 04/08/16

I like this cigar. For the money it is hard to beat. I always keep a few on hand. It is a little strong for the first cigar of the day but it goes very good with a single malt Scotch or small batch bourbon. Good taste, good draw, doesn't fall apart or get too hot close to the end. As with all cigars I buy, unless they ship with a little humipak, I let them sit in the humidor for 1-2 weeks, depending on how inpatient I get to smoke it.

Nèwoldschool on 01/07/16

Just finished one of these. I'm just a regular guy had a rough day. Let me just say they are delicious. Never mind the inexpensive price, because they're so good you could mistake them for a big name brand. Draw was smooth, retrohale was cool and smooth. Kept the ash on for an 1 1/2". Nice white ash too. Didn't come apart at all. Rolled very well. Same taste throughout. Try them

Heywood on 11/14/15

You're going to find some construction, burn issues with these but the flavor and cost easily make up for those. This is a classy, sweet smoking, rich cigar that could pass for a $10 stick. Don't hesitate to buy these and give them a try.

Dennis on 11/10/15

Amazing. Let these bad boys sit for 2wks before I busted into them. I'm impressed. I haven't had the chance to burn the actual edmundo so I can't. However this smoke is great for the price. Will for sure buy again and looking forward to trying some of the others. Would love for JR to offer 5packs in the other jr alts. Thanks guys for a great smoke.

JR Edicion Limitada Alternative Montecristo Edmundo 5-Pack · 5.25 × 54

Jason on 09/27/15

As I have never had the real deal I must admit I loved this cigar as much as some higher dollar sticks. Draw is tight and the burn is slow, but they keep lit. The flavor is not as bold as I thought but still nice. Definitely going to re-order a 5 pack to keep on hand for the golf course.
