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!
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!
not much there for me
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.
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.

Most of JR's alternatives are good this one sucks however. It flavor taste like barnyard not like Ashton. Not even close to the real thing. It was like JR said hey let's throw an extra tobacco clippings in a cigar and pass it off as a knock off forget it!
JR ALTERNATIVE ASHTON

I have said before if you unbanded this jr cigar and unbanded the Ashton and hE someone smoke both they would not be able to tell. So if you have a fAvorite cigar Nd Jr has an alternative but it save money and still smoke what you love

Me personally I was not too happy with this smoke. Started of I little bitter then came in I creamy grassy Hey flavor. Draw and construction were good. Remember different strokes for different folk. Give it a try. Might work well with your palate.

Don't let the cheap price fool you. This cigar is as smooth as a Macanudo at a fraction of the price. It lasts well and man is it smooth. I would recommend this to any first timer or any long time cigar aficionado.
Make it the first smoke of the day

These smokes aren't quite an Ashton but they are good for the money. The wrappers are a nice light brown and the smoke is clean with no bite. Nice cigar for the first thing in the morning, but if you smoke it as a second cigar of the day you might be disappointed. You need to smoke this with a clean palate before you smoke something fuller.
As always JR Alt's do it again

I never really had the JR alternatives until I received them in a sample pack. I came across this one from a friend and it's wonderful. Their cigars are always top notch like the cigars they're replicating but for a fraction of the price

This is the most under rated cigars. In a blind fold taste test I would bet you couldn't pick the real McCoy if anything you will pick jr alternative. For the price you can't beat them. These are probably my favorite J.R.Alternatives

Nice smoke For the price I would recommend To all my friends just as good as the real deal I have been buying them for years and will continue to do so Thanks for providing the great people of the world an affordable option so us poor people can pretend we are smoking the real deal
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.

I am not much of a fan of any Ashton's that I've tried, so I was pleasantly surprised when this stick had a great burn a decent transitions between flavor profiles. I received this stick in a trade, but I'd buy more

Once again I have been quite impressed with the JR. Alternatives. It seems like a tough feat to mimic an Ashton cigar, but these are good quality for the money. Perfect to give to someone who wants to try cigars but you don't want to give them one of your finest.

One of the better alternatives. Most have a good draw and construction. They all seem to leave a metallic aftertaste. If your looking for an Ashton, buy an Ashton. If your looking for an Ashton at 70% off. This is what you get

The JR Ashton alternative cigar is an amazing alternative to the Ashton line, which can be pricey. I always keep a bundle of JR Ashton alternatives cigars on standby to hand out to family and friends that enjoy the occasional cigar. Great value and flair
Good every day smoke

Purchased a bundle of these a while back and most of them are still in my humidor, that being said these are great smokes for the money. Full of flavor and a nice even burn. You may get some tobacco particles in your mouth though but hey for the money I like them.
JR Brands are good to go!
Coach on 06/20/15
Here is the deal, you can not go wrong with any of JR alternatives. I religiously by bricks of several different sticks, and have never been disappointed. This particular one is on my regular list. Great construction, flavor is spot on, and the draw is super consistant. I love the JR alts.
Not a good smoke
Perocafe on 06/21/15
I was not impressed with this brand of JRs. The cigar itself came well hydrated and humidified, as part of sampler deal. The smoke is another story. It had a harsh first couple of draws then evened out. Then got harsh again, a little past the halfway point of the cigar. I would not recommend ordering an entire mazo or box of these.

Consistent cigar. JR Alternatives are usually pretty good. For whatever reason I didn't care too much for this one. Felt almost as if there wasn't as much flavor as the other Alternatives I've had. I prefer the H. Upmann Alternative.

A friend of mine gave me one to try and I was skeptical cuz I never smoked a generic. I'd have to say tho that it was a pretty good smoke. Perfect size for lunch break or with a nice cup of coffee. Mild to medium and slight nutty flavor. Reminds me of R&J's.

I really enjoys these as a daily smoke. I have 4 different JR alternatives that I enjoy as my daily smoke. This one has a nice draw, good even burn and consistly good. This is my drive to the office cigar.
Big taste. Low price.

Ever wanted to try the famous Ashton brand cigars but after dusting off your wallet can't afford the steep price tag. Well here's the alternative they smoke just like the Ashton, taste like the Ashton but comes with a JR Price tag.
Nice JR alternative

This is actually not bad at all. It's a true alternative for yard work. The flavor is there and they can be obtained with only a portion of the price. So if smoke is more important to you than looks, don't hesitate to grab it !
