Great cigar

on 03/09/15

This is a great JR Alternative. I'm never let down by the flavor of this Ashton Alternative. I get these cigars for all of my poker nights with the guys and is always a crowd pleaser!

Cigar

on 05/05/15

I have had several of these and to me they are just a meh cigar. The construction on all of them were ok but flavors were muted. The draw was great and the tobaccoo was pretty good quality I would suggest these if you need a yardgar or just want something to smoke but if you are truely looking for an ashton replacement they have a ways to go.

JR Alt

on 04/13/15

I've loved all of the JR Alts. Not a bad thing to say about them at all. Good flavor, mild smoke, great burn. Although I don't see very many similarities to the Ashton.

Blown away

on 04/13/15

I was completely shocked with how good this stick was. The flavor, draw and construction was spot on. I simply could not believe the quality that was in this stick. As one of my first alternatives, it sealed the deal for me and made me decide to try more.

amazing smoke for the money!

on 04/15/15

These can be had for very inexpensive and are a phenomenal stick both young and aged. With a smooth creamy flavor, bits of underlying honey sweetness, and a hay undertone, these are an exceptional smoke for the money!

Good smoke

on 04/13/15

These cigars are great for someone looking to get into the premium cigar world, or just people that really enjoy a nice mild cigar. These Ashton alternative cigars are not to aggressive and dont have an exceedingly long burn time so I highly recommend them for most uses.

Great smoke

on 04/16/15

The ashton corona is true to it's name sake, a light, genuinely good smoke. Not for those who like spice.

A good deal

on 04/17/15

A nice smoke at a fair price. Good construction with loose draw. Mild and tasty and a great value. I keep some on hand to share with friends.

not much there for me

on 04/17/15

Cigars arrived and felt kind of dry. Retired one anyways. Burn was not consistent and gaff very little in the flavor profile. Tried one again after being in the humidor for a week and while the burn was consistent, the flavor profile was still lacking.

good replica

on 04/18/15

As most jr alts, it is a good replica with a very good pricetag. A medium bodied value smoke that would be good for a daily

great burn

on 04/16/15

This is a good cigar like all the JR alts. The burn was razor sharp and the flavor was good, just could have had a bit more.
