Same problem, won't stay lit and kind of an uneven burn. Still for $2 a stick not bad.

Meh...

GeorgeThe Fat Cop on 05/31/16

okay - hard to stay lit. Couple were a bit tight. But at these prices can't really complain.

Wouldn't stay lit.

spwalls on 07/05/15

This is a great tasting, full bodied stick that is well constructed. Unfortunately, it would not keep a burn. I would have to constantly draw on it or relight it 4-6 times in a setting.

Knockoff Rocky

Baffler on 05/12/15

Like the length and ring size but did not care for the way this cigar smoked! Of the few I smoked from the bundle most would not stay lit and they either a hard draw or no draw! A little harsh of a taste when they did produce a draw!

Good Lawn work Cigar

TJ Shadwell on 05/13/17

Most JR Duplicates are pretty good, many could pass for a higher-end cigar; this is not one of them. Kind of a hard cigar which, at times creates a tough draw or even the "hole in a straw" draw which you cave your head in to get nothing. When they burn well though, the burn is even & flavorful. Get some for mowing lawn, not surfing the porch.

smooth yet bold flavor, which stays the same from one order to the next.

Jonny P on 03/07/16

These are my yardwork sticks and I mow alot. Need some work in the construction as they often won't stay lit due to dense hard spots.

Ohhhh Rocky...you suck....the draw is terrible. Where is quality control?

Joe Guide on 01/16/18

Has seen better days. Quality control was much better...last year...three years ago? That happens when buyers ...are partying too much and scuzzing too much rum and snioretia's down at the purchuse block buying up large numbers of imperfect second hand cigars to re-sell. IT COMES down to Quality Assurance. JR's buyers will continue as long as the white collar boys in the office don't hold them accountable for Quaility Assurance. Well now...that is always a problem when you hire family to do the traveling and purchacing and if they don't care a damn, that impacts quaility assurance. It is certainly true in economics and in tobacco. Quality construction matters to the consumer, but only if the consumer holds the buyers accountable through honest feed back. Honest feedback is certainly needed amid all the fake news and fake feedback. JR CIGARs has many good brands of cigars...a some quiality individuals that know what they are purchacing . The head shed needs to look closer at the honest reviewers and the quality controlers and re-tool their purchace orders and get some of these cigars back on track.

My everyday cigar

Miker on 02/03/18

I have been smoking this for a couple of years. I have noticed that lately it is inconsistent and hard to stay lit. Will try one more bundle, so let’s hope the quality has improved

A Solid Smoke

bobc007 on 04/03/17

A solid smoke with a real nice finish. For the most part, an easy drawing cigar. It's my everyday cigar! You can't beat the price, either!

Not bad

Dink2494 on 01/28/16

This is my go to for working in the yard or in the garage. It is nice enough to enjoy but not the one that I pick up when I am relaxing with a lot of time to truly enjoy a good smoke. One to give to friends who want to look cool but have no idea what a cigar is.

Great stick at a great price

JDB_StL on 12/23/17

This is a great stick at this price point. I try to make sure to keep these stocked in my humidor. Out of the two bundles I have bought, I only had an issue with one cigar.

Great smoke!!

Cortley on 05/06/18

I decided to give the JR alternative cigars a try and WOW! Every thing I have read that was negative about these smoked were wrong. Draw, flavor, taste, burn, and staying lit was a great. Great every day back porch smoke. I gave it a 4 star and not a 5 due to it being a little over veiny. You can’t beat the price for a bundle. Im not a employee of JR’s so I’m not talking this smoke up. I’m just a good ol country boy who likes a good smoke. I have also been told the Rocky Patel alternative was made in the Rocky Patel factory’s un like all the rest of the JR alternatives. Smoke up to all my cigar family out there.
