I was so pleased by these--especially for the price--that I almost didn't post this for fear I might contribute to you running out. but i felt guilty because I just trashed the montecristos that came with them.

Have recently seen some really unreliable quality control from some name brands (even Macanudo and Monte Cristo), with some batches having a third to a half so tight it's like trying to smoke a dowel. These Ashton alternatives, however, are consistently good.
You can't beat this smoke

I keep trying but I can't beat this smoke. Used to smoke Ashton half corona but I now like this better and for a lot less money. They are currently sold out so I am trying another Ashton knock off and hoping it is as good. JR. great job!!
Worth The Money and Then Some

I have to admit that for a very moderate price this is an excellent cigar. If you are looking for something to smoke that wont send you to the poor house but has a relatively good taste, you cant miss with this smoke. I found the draw to be very good which is one of my main concerns. It's no Ashton but neither is the price. You won't be disappointed.
Go To Cigar

This is my go to cigar when I'm working around the farm or out in the boat fishing. I've been smoking these for over 5 years and I've never gotten a bad batch. The draw is good and they burn evenly all the way to the band.
Cut the Grass

This is the smoke to cut grass and to smoke while fishing... If it falls in the water or drops into the grass, it is not a big loss.... It is good enough while doing something but not one to sit down and analyze the stars or drink an adult beverage...
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.
A good JR Alternative

I was really excited to try these based on the strong feedback. However, I found them harsh and the wrapper had an acid taste. They smoked well and had average flavor. Overall, I prefer most of the other JR Alternatives to this one.

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
