JUNK

Not the best

qeco on 03/27/17

Just ok. Not the best for the money. I'll stay with the Baccarat for my everyday smoke, it's a much better value and a very superior cigar (in comparison)

Ashton Alternative

I did not like the Ashton Churchill Alternative at all. I will never order it again. The Alternative Punch Gran Cru and the Alternative Cubana Churchill are outstanding and I will stay with them.

Good smoke

Good cigarette but last 2 bundles were hard to get a good draw. Had to constantly relight. Price has been going up, might to rethink reordering

"Loaded" Cigar!

Pat S. on 06/22/17

Not happy with these cigars. Burned wet as soon as I got them so I know it's not my humidor. Constantly relighting them. Ash holds ok but flares out at the end, as if someone put a "load" in the cigar!

Just ok

jamesdale on 08/31/17

A pretty good cigar for the price. But uneven ash, it hours out occasionally and can be hard to light. A few in the bundle taste sharp and bitter. Others are fine.

Not bad, but not great

wahl72 on 05/15/17

Tight draw, it was only about half way through the stick that it was no longer an effort to smoke it. It did taste similar to Ashton

Wrap and draw inconsistent

Joe m on 04/21/17

Still getting cigars that are wrapped so tight, I can't get a smooth draw. When they do draw right, very nice smoke.

Terrible Quality Control

PathNole on 03/26/17

This cigar had been consistently inconsistent. The last batch was truly terrible - the draw was awful and every cigar I tried from the bundle wentt out numerous times' I never finished a single cigar. I will never order this cigar again.

JRASCH WAS TRASH

OlTime Smokr on 03/26/17

Been smoking these for years. Lately const. is iffy. last bundle, none would stay lit. Filler was powdery like floor sweepings. Whole bundle was trash. C'mon JR, you can do better.

Good smoke when not wrapped too tight.

Joe m on 03/19/17

Good smoke most of the time. The wrap is inconsistent where many of the cigars are wrapped so tight, I can't get a smooth draw.

nice for the price

propel on 12/26/16

when you first light this cigar very harsh taste then after 4 draws goes to a nice mild taste very good draw good working cigar and doing stuff around the house but if you want to sit back and relax with a nice glass of wine you need to buy the real deal
