Mfos on 06/17/15

Like most JR alternatives a pretty good value. Realistically, these are not going to be mistaken for the real thing but for the money they are very good.

JR Cuban Alternative to the Bolivar Belicoso Cigar Review

JR Cuban Alternative to the Bolivar Belicoso Cigar on 06/05/15

Very Good Cigar at a Fantastic price. These value-priced long filler cigars have excellent construction, smooth draw, very good quality, delicious flavor, and great consistency you would expect from the JR Alternatives brand. I'm on my second order and will continue to enjoy this terrific cigar.

JR Cuban

Well worth a try in my book. While not exactly what I would call a Cuban, for the price the next best thing.

Don't bother

Rod on 02/06/16

One thing I can say about this cigar is that it shows consistent construction - consistently poor. I don't think I've one in the bundle that didn't split and/or unravel.

The JR Alternatives Are Superb

Rich - A Honky Tonk Hero on 05/16/16

I can buy $20 cigars but why? Two or three times a year, I fill my humidor with these wonderful discoveries among the JR brands. I continually order the JR Cuban Alternatives, like the Bolivar Belicoso or Montecristo, because they are delivered quickly, arrive fresh, and each time without fail, have a consistent and delicious taste and aroma seasoned cigar smokers will find very enjoyable. At sunset, two fingers of JD, or an after dinner Baileys & coffee in one hand while watching another uniquely beautiful southern Utah sunset, and a rich JR cigar softly burning in the other. . . . I wonder what the rest of the world is up to? Thanks JR Cigars. Rich - A Honky Tonk Hero

Cuban plus

Jmarino on 09/24/15

Stands up as one of the best Cuban alternatives. If you enjoy the monteceisto #2, this cigar won't let you down.

The knockoff

SteveMcGrath on 06/28/15

The JR Cuban alternative cigars have the usual consistency issues that most of the JR knockoff brands have.

Only one every so often

Sensoro on 07/21/16

Set your thoughts on an OK smoke. The smoke is good. Draw is average to slightly tight. The build is solid the cigar doesn't come apart and has a consistent feel or firmness throughout. The taste is a little on the bitter to burnt side. I definitely would smoke 2 back to back my mouth would feel like a dogs a** what ever that feels and tastes like. But one is tolerable. If your a premium cigar buff this would be an occasional smoke. If your just starting or want some cigar to give away try a more premium brand first and get your pallette adjusted to quality then this cigar will find its place in the occasional smoke section of your humidor. This thing is forcing me to write more because this is the second JR cigar I've reviewed today. And so both have some similarities that the computer system seems to think I'm not deciphering enough difference between them and I should be creative rather that factually honest about the cigar so I am rambling a bit trying to get the computer to release my review. Hope it helps.

I'm always amazed at how well made JR alternatives are. These Bolivars come pretty close to the original, for about half the price!

Very good for the cost

cjim on 03/26/16

They have a tendency to lose their wrap and start to peel. However, its not like you are paying $15 a stick. Very good cigar for the money.

No Brainer

Old Smoky on 06/13/16

This is one of my favorite everyday smokes. It's what we expect from a JR Alternative, very consistent from one bundle to the next. Nice construction. I have never lost a wrapper on even one of these smokes and the draw is always perfect. Boy--do I hate a hard draw 👿.

Love the JR Bolivar Belicoso Alternative

California Pilot on 01/30/16

These cigars feel, look, taste and smell good. My box was consistent and all drew well. Very happy especially with the price. You can't go wrong with these. I smoked them concurrently with H Upmann 1844 Reserves and they compared very well quality-wise, although not the same.
