A fine, moderately priced cigar

dfmarshall on 02/11/16

I haven't had a genuine Dunhill in a very long time, so I can't give a direct comparison. That said, these are some of the best JR Alternatives I've smoked. The roll and draw are a little on the tight side, but that's OK since I despise a loose, under filled cigar. The wrappers may or may not be Connecticut shade, but they do have the correct golden type tan, not the uneven light brown sometimes encountered on inexpensive "natural" cigars. They are mild-medium without tasting thin or grassy like some name brand mild cigars. One of these and a good cup of coffee is an excellent pairing. I almost hate to be too positive about them for fear of causing a run on the supply. But since these aren't following the sewer pipe ring gauge trend that's hot right now I'm probably safe. :-)

Love all the alternatives

Very nice. Great draw for a skinny cigar. Consistently good.

Very Good, Considering

JR's Samana is a very attractive alternative cigar, somewhat inconsistent in construction and draw, but when it's good, it's very good, a smooth, creamy smoke with a steady burn and rich flavor.

Not so great

So far I'm not very happy out of 5 cigars I've thrown 3 out because the draw was so bad even after trying to poke them with a draw poker. The two that I smoke I enjoyed them
