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.

One of the best bargains

DonkeyPunch on 12/10/17

I love 'em! I liked them even better when they were under $30, but these really surprised me. I find them to be a completely enjoyable smoke, with consistency throughout the bundle. I'll be buying more for sure.

Affordable alternative

Wingnut on 04/17/18

The cuban alternative is not a great cigar, but a good cigar that is easy on the budget. Have used them for years and intend to continue.

Good Smokes

AL 1947 on 04/01/18

While these are nothing like a real Cohiba Robusto but nothing else is, they are a pleasant, satisfying, and economical alternative. Easy to like.

Tastes young, these are going to need more time in my humidor to season properly. I expect them to improve.

I would try them again.

V3tek on 06/10/18

I got 5 of these in a sampler pack and these may have been as good as the “alternative” Cuban Monte’s. Pretty good flavor and overall worth ordering again when on sale. I took the labels off and didn’t tell anyone what they were. Just handed them out and everyone liked them. When asked what they were, I just said that they are some smokes I got a deal on. Other than the ash being a little ragged and falling off prematurely, they are not too bad at all. Just don’t smoke them wearing a good shirt. Would be good on a golf course.

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.

Inconsistent

Johnsob on 05/29/18

Like the cigar. Have smoked them for the last few years. However, recently the smoke ...draw and flavor has been inconsistent.

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 what I was expecting, however, Well made.

TheWobbegong on 05/07/18

This cigar has wonderful construction, burns very nicely, has a great robust smell. It is very well made for its price, however, the taste was very odd and slightly unpleasant. I could not pinpoint what I was tasting. I am considering trying other JR Alternatives, but will not order this one again.

Great summer cigar

I am really enjoying this cigar. Perfect for a night on my balcony watching barges on the river go by.
