Average

Burr on 07/29/15

Not bad for the money but a little dry. I thought that the construction was average and draw inconsistent. Flavor was average. All in all a average cigar , but for the budget conscious buyer a good cigar.

A very good value

Tom Bruels on 02/11/17

This was my first purchase of JR Alternatives. I wasn't sure of what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. I think the average cigar smoker would have a hard time telling the difference between this and the CAO Gold. I've only had one so far, but it was well constructed, a nice draw, and had a nice flavor. If this holds true for the rest of the bundle, I'll be trying more of the JR Alternatives. I've smoke more expensive, name-brand cigars that weren't as nice as this.

Good smoke

JoeZ on 09/14/16

This is a great sick for the price. Burn good most have a nice white ash. I've been buying these for years and not too often do I get a bad one. I like them better than the original cao golds.

One of the best

Heywood on 08/06/16

I've been trying various Alts to find the good ones and this is very good. Very well made and smokes perfectly even every time - haven't had a dud in the bundle. Nice sweet tobacco flavor that leaves a pleasant baked-bread type of aftertaste. A really good cigar for the money.

Great stogie!

Wolfie on 11/18/15

I disagree with some of the reviews on this cigar - I think it's one of the best values out there. Consistency on every front, terrific flavor, great burn and draw. This is definitely my go-to cigar for several reasons.

Surprisingly good

Bob W on 03/12/17

Bought these along with Romeo Juliet Bullys. The JR alternatives were fine and construction excellent. My Bullys were not up to standard....wrappers quickly fell apart.

CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR

MChesko on 02/09/16

Not too bad. I love CAO so its tough for me to compair these two. I my opinion CAO is one of the best. But for the money alone.....this can't be beat

DISAPPOINTED - Super Tight Draw

Nedd Mudd on 08/01/17

DISAPPOINTED!!! First one out of the pack and the draw is WAY to tight. It should not be like sucking a super thick milkshake. Seems to be a consistent theme with JR Alternatives. Should have bought quality and not tried to "cheap" route. Lesson learned.

CAO special!

Rocketteman on 06/05/17

Sorry guys but this cigar fell very short of the alternative Monte Christo's I normally buy! Several of these terrible draw & a couple burned very uneven??! Love your products normally but not this one?! Thx, JD
