Hmmmmm

I wasn't impressed with this bundle. The strength is closer to full than medium. The draw was tough and required frequent lighting. Not for me.

Not the cigar for me

Dutch52 on 06/04/15

I was hoping for more. I've had Ashtons, and these don't come close in my opinion. I've smoked cigars since I was fifteen. I've always smoked the inexpensive ones, but wanted to try the premium cigars now that I'm in retirement. So I've been trying different ones hoping to find a cigar I like and can afford. I thought JR alternatives would be the way to go, but not with these cigars I just purchased. The draw was so poor on the one I tried today I had to throw it away. I've had worse cigars that cost more, but I wouldn't buy these again. Still looking for a good cigar I can afford.

JR Alt. - Ashton 40

The 50 ring gauge might be off a gauge or two. It seems thinner than 50 ga, but overall a pretty good smoke. If it were a 54 ga. I would buy again. I give it a 6.8 out of 10.

JR Alternatives are ROUGH!

I've ordered cigars from you guys for years. Always enjoyed the smokes. However, I didn't enjoy the JR Ultimate's i ordered at all. After smoking two of them, they were very harsh and bitter, not sure a tobacco was put in these. I've never asked this of JR before but could i return these Alternatives?
