Great cigar

unknown 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

Stoney on 08/25/15

I really a enjoyed this cigar. Smoked it at a bachelor party with a couple friends. A must have for the price. Consistency and flavor is off the chain. Easy to cut, smoke and enjoy with a glass of scotch. Wasn't impressed with the packaging very much, but everything else was a 10 star. Would buy more of these for sure.

Great smoke

unknown 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.

not much there for me

unknown 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.

alternative Ashton corona

Killinit on 07/29/15

The alternative Ashton corona should be just that. An alternative to whatever else you have. Maybe give it to the friend you don't like too much when you have your buddies over for a smoke. It's not terrible but it certainly wouldn't be my first choice.

Cigar

unknown 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.

Close...

Pretty much the same as the Ashton, firmer draw with a slightly more uneven burn. All around it's a good deal, but not the real thing.

JR Alt Ashton

Crockpot on 06/13/15

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

great burn

unknown 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.

JR Alt

unknown 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

unknown 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.

Value Corona for the money!

Topspin43 on 08/16/15

I'm a fan of any JR Dominican Alternative. Great everyday smoke on a budget. Dunhill, Macanudo and Ashton Alternatives are all very similar Coronas.

good replica

unknown 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
