Good cigars for the price

Great smoke for an everyday cigar ! I buy them all the time. If you want a cigar that has good taste, construction and price this is the one for you. For the price you can't go wrong. Buy a bundle

Nice golf cigar, which I feel comfortable giving to a partner. Another value hit by JR.

JRs answer to Hoyo's.

Tidbit824 on 06/09/15

JrRs has found a gold mine in their alternative cigars. The JR Governor is the answer to the problem: a good smoke at a great price. I first tried the JR Governor while in North Carolina. I stopped at the store and purchased the JR alternative to the HOYO Governor. What a find---- this cigar was fresh, light easily, stays lit and tastes very similar to the Hoyo. I have since purchased 2 more bundles of this good cigar. This is gonna be my everyday smoke. So, if u like Hoyo's you will definitely the JR alternative. What's not to like: an everyday cigar that tastes like a Hoyo at a much better price.

Not a bad smoke....burns unevenly at times....good taste for 3/4 of cigar then often tastes hot & bitter at the end.
