JR Strikes silver

Bapakgila on 08/08/17

Like "WAL" regarding his "Cohiba Robusto" review, I was pleasantly surprised considering the price and size. As a long term cigar smoker, I too have stuck with favorite cigars over the span of 20 plus years and have to admit, I just might switch by daily routine up by mixing it up with these cigars. Joya de Nicaragua and San Lotano have been by go to cigars outside of my favorite lounge cigars but like WAL, I was taken back by the scent of the in-lite cigar, the ever changing scents/tastes from floral to cedar and yes a hint of coffee and vanilla which is the way I like to start my morning. I beg of everyone to listen to WAL regarding his review, I agree 100% of everything he stated. I am leaving a couple of my go-to cigars behind and replacing them with this one.

Gonna explore more Jr Alternatives

Steve on 04/24/17

I'm new to Jr Alternatives though I've been smoking cigars for years. These are great little sticks that are exceptionally well made and constructed. They burn slowly and the ones I have smokes so far keep quite a sharp burn line. They taste quite good and are simply as good as or better than many of the other smokes I've tried over the years. It will be fun now that I've tried these to explore many of the nice offerings in Jr's Alternative Line.

Jr Cuban alternative cohiba robusto

Smokalatte on 07/10/17

this has a good pull on the draw which makes the smoke nice and dense.the construction is great burns like it should no hot spots or flavor decrease.the flavor definitely hits the spot though for a great morning smoke has a slight peppery Hit with a bit of cream on the retro hale from the Honduran.and Nicaraguan nutty taste on the tip of the tongue and on the back its smooth and creamed from a Dominican tobacco but a great cigar all and all. Just remember every cigar has its own Identity.appreciate it

Not close

John m on 04/24/17

Very different flavor than the real thing it's not smooth or light. It's a much heavier than the Cuban counterpart and rough after taste.

JR's Cohiba Robusto is solid.

Ag Kepanis on 08/28/17

A smooth smoke that burns evenly and provides an enjoyable hour. The draw is consistent. Construction is solid.

One of the best

Frenrut on 03/10/17

This has become my "go to" Jr alternative. Very consistent, good flavor. Draw always perfect with a solid ash. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a reasonably priced daily smoke.

Great smoke

Andrew on 01/08/17

This is an awesome smoke. Almost on par with the real ones that I pay over $20 a cigar for outside of the US. The burn is a little off but at these prices who really cares.

After Further Review

Lynn on 11/07/16

I initially reviewed this cigar two months ago. The thing was dry and flaking. Glad to say that after a one month sleep in the humidor, all is well. And the flavor remains good!

Super Smoke

Somoken Joe on 10/05/16

It has an excellent draw. I have always looked for good draw cigars and this is a perfect combination of taste and consistent burn. For those of us who love Cohibas but cant afford to get them-this is a perfect alternative

A substandard initial experience.

Lynn on 09/01/16

This was my first order from JR cigars. I certainly hope this is not indicative of all future orders. Although the flavor is very good, the cigars are extremely dry. When I cut into the first one it crumbled. About 15 minutes into the smoke it was falling apart. The second was a bit better. The third, the same as the first. You can't enjoy the flavor if the dog gone thing is falling apart.

Enjoyable cigar

Ross on 07/10/16

Smooth draw, dark wrapper, slow burn, nice solid white ash. I taste a leathery, peppery smoke. To be enjoyed at leisure following a meal. Perfect match with a dark roast coffee.
