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

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.

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.

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

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.

Popeye00701701 on 06/08/15

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

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!

Ashton Corona

smokeymedic on 06/14/15

Ashton's are some of the best mild cigars, so for JR to try and copy it is a bold endeavor, and while I wouldn't say they nailed it...it's a very enjoyable Ashton-like cigar without the Ashton price point.

Richburris66 on 06/30/15

Make it the first smoke of the day

Steveb on 06/19/15

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.

AN OK Cigar, but No Great Woof

PathNole on 08/04/15

This mild-medium 2nd cousin of the world famous Ashton Corona, made from the droppings, err..., clippings of such behemoths as the Macanudo, Montecristo, and Excalibur, has been my go-to smoke when I'm craving a 30-minute quickie. In the past, JR has kept up their end of the bargain, but, in the last few months, the consistency and draw has plummeted, while the flavor is marred by obvious maltreatment (either dried out and reconstituted, or just plain bad). I have been ordering less from this company because of a deteriorating quality and customer service.

You will Love JR alternative Cigars

Lefty6pack on 08/21/15

All of the JR alternatives are fantastic cigars. I find the consistency of the JR alternatives to be equal to the name brand cigars. If you need the label to feel good about the cigar you are buying buy the name brand. If you want the same quality cigar for less by a JR alternative of your favorite cigar.

Gummie Bear on 04/05/16

A mild, good inexpensive smoke. Draws well but tends to burn inconsistently. A little spice but not real strong. Some variation in construction from one cigar to another cigar.... Price has been climbing on these the past few years since they are Dominican...too bad since they were a good bargain at closer to a buck each rather than almost $2 each...

Heywood on 02/27/16

I honesty don't know how any experienced cigar smoker would not like this cigar. It's a very good example of a D.R. claro. It has a pungent peppery profile that's stronger than a Don Dieogo corona, or a Mac. I was surprised by it's strength and unique character but thoroughly like it. Very much a winner and well worth the money. Tastes like a cigar in the $10 range. Don't hesitate to buy this one.

I am always hesitant about smoking knock off cigars. However the JR Alternative selection cigars that I have tried throughout the years have all been excellent.This one in particular is a fine tasting well made cigar. It has a mellow to medium profile that bursts with flavor. The cigar draws nicely and has a cool even burn. For the difference in price be sure to try the JR Alternative version of the Ashton.

This Ashton corona cigar is a great choice! Toting this stick to any social gathering will turn anyone into the center of attention. No man, woman, or child can resist the oaky notes drifting off of your Ashton corona. As the slow burn snakes its way through the tobacco it will continually release more complex flavored and aromas leaving your mouth feeling alive and any nostril in the near vicinity intrigued. I can not recommend this cigar enough, enjoy!

Classic

Foxeyloxy on 09/13/15

Although I wouldn’t call it “ugly” the Superior does not look the best, as it has a few flaws in its appearance. The wrapper is rough, with plenty of veins and a few green spots. The bunch is normal, but inconsistent, with some looser spots on both ends of the cigar. The triple car is rounded and sloppy, but there is plenty of floral aromas present on the foot of the cigar. The prelight draw is also loose.

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.

An Inexpensive Alternative for the Ashton Corona

PathNole on 06/08/16

This 5.5 x 42 JR Alt purports to be "...close in size, flavor, and strength to those big-name brands." One out of three isn't too bad - it is the same size. Flavor-wise, The JR Alt Ashton is inconsistent within the same bundle or between bundles. The burn ranges from clean and symmetrical, to absolutely atrocious! And the wrapper - that's another story. "spontaneous unraveling" is sometimes the rule. Flavor-wise, there is a subtle pepper finish, but many sticks taste harsh from the beginning, and always as the cigar burns down. Despite these occasional flaws, the JR Alt AC is an inexpensive alternative to paying outrageous prices at the neighborhood cigar shop for a shriveled up cigar from their humidor.

priced right end of discussion

as with all of the JR alternative I love the cigars. I really love the price. They never disappoint considering the price you can't go wrong.

Great job JR

Great job by JR for this alternative. Mild and light smoke, but still flavorful tobacco just like Ashton. Great Corona!

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 !

jr alternative to ashton

I think these are the actual thing. I can't tell the difference. Its like they just stole them from the ashton factory

Good clone

This replicated Ashton Corona by JR was well thought out. Smooth, mild and impossible not to like. A bundle of these Alternatives are in my future.

Good duplicate

DY on 09/02/15

I thought it would be hard to replicate any major company's cigar, but once again this alternative cigar impressed me. Carried the smooth light tobacco flavor Ashton is great for. Love these.

A good match

DGY on 09/02/15

Love trying JR Alternative cigars and I love Ashtons. The result? A spot on match. I'm happy they reproduced this cigar. Smooth taste that's light and no harshness. Keep them coming.

Spot on

A friend of mine picked up a bundle of these and gave me one (Knowing I'm a big Ashton fan). Well duplicated! A tasty mild cigar that can actually make a run with Ashton. Cheers JR.

Close to the real thing

Poot on 09/02/15

I'm a fan of Ashton so I picked up a single of this cigar with one of my orders. Glad I did. Pretty close duplicate to one of Ashton's mild smokes. Zero issues from light up to finish.

Not the best

Colt luck on 09/01/15

The jr alternative was ok. Flavor was more tobacco than anything. I think it could've been better.

cool

Fiveo on 09/01/15

This held very well. The filler and wrapper did not fall apart and was solid throughout. Produced since aroma and I just felt cool holding it

Good value for $$

jedwardsandonwards on 09/01/15

Really very similar to an Ashton! Without the band it is hard to even notice a difference with the others in my humidor, amazing price point and flavor is almost identical

good smoke

jmigli on 05/24/16

it's a good cigar, it has a nice flavor, can't beat the price. Keep in mind it's not an ashton so don't kid yourself , but it's an excellent cigar for the money

Review

Chip on 04/15/16

The cigar is to tightly wrapped so the draw causes to pull hard on the cigar. Because of this it tends to burn hot and have a bitter taste The product is consistent in this fashion. For the money it is a value but don't expect it to be of the quality of a real Ashton

armyman202001 on 08/31/15

Great for the price can't beat this smoke for the low coin. I really enjoyed this smoke and did not expect it to be as good as it was.

Good try...JR

amaro5211 on 08/31/15

This was a good attempt at an Ashton from JR. It smoked well but the flavor was just not there. This cigar was 1 dimensional and never gave an adventure, just a plain boring ride.

Meh...

Lucky on 08/08/15

Didn't taste much like what it was imitating, but for the price it's a solid smoke. No where near Ashton quality construction.
