Very Close

I have been an Ashton original fan for many years. I am tired of the Ashton price increases resulting in an almost $9 price for the 898. The JR alternative was pretty close.

Good alternative

Jack on 12/24/15

Good value, good cigar. I've been smoking these for years. Since I can't afford $$$ for daily cigars, these are a good choice.

Good smoke

Lars on 05/02/16

Good cigars and a good price. I like the flavor, but the draw has been inconsistent. One cigar will be fantastic, the next I might not get any draw. They are way more good than bad though. I'd buy them again.

Good Deal

Barry on 06/17/17

This is a very good mild cigar. It smokes like the original Ashton for a small fraction of the Ashton price.

VERY WELL-MADE CIGAR

Rob on 10/26/16

Easy draw; burns evenly; good flavor. I've been smoking these for over a year and find the quality to be consistent. Great cigar for the price.

Not even close to an Alternative

Chuck on 08/08/17

This was the most awful smoke I have purchased. Not at all smooth and leave a terrible aftertaste in your mouth. Doesn't come within any range of the Ashton 898's. If you like a strong harsh cigar this is it. In my opinion a waste of money for cigars to just take up space in my humidor. Never again.
