great smoke bad experience

While I enjoyed these cigars I have to say I am not happy with the service I received trying to track them down I waited 6 days to receive tem on a normal 3 day delivery Customer service was not a big help giving me the standard response of "the post office had an issue with delivery " as well as a bit of an attitude. Almost making me think of going to another supplier for my product. After 5 years of on line and store purchases I shouldn't be this angry , but I am

One of JR's Best Alternatives

redacdog on 07/16/15

One of the best cigars offered. Great flavor and taste, I enjoy them to a stub. Only way to make them better is to offer a larger ring. One issue is consistency, average at least three cigars per bundle which are rolled too tightly. I smoke three to four per day, and purchase five to six bundles per month or so.

Fair and Balanced Review

truesource4 on 01/13/18

This cigar is no representation of the cigars of the 90"s but for the price it is very good. I get a strong espresso flavor without being harsh. It burns cool but burns uneven. Not a deal breaker but you need to light the sides that burn unevenly. All in all my favorite alternative. If JR raises the price, I will definitely consider going back to cigarbid.com for a more value conscious choice. Cigars today are really poor compared to the quality of the 90's. None are worth the high prices that they place on them. Too bad for new cigar smokers. They don't know what they missed out on.

Bigger is better

The JR Alternative Hoyo Governor is as good or better than the original Hoyo Governor for flavor. But the Draw, construction and consistency could use a little work. But knowing they do not us the materials, I would rate this cigar a 8. It has been my go to cigar for over ten years. If you want to improve it even more, increase the ring a couple sizes, a 52 would go a long way in making this cigar a 10.

Right for the price.

Nice smoke. A little bitter but has a good taste as you smoke. Good replica of a hoyo but without the cost.

The JR Alternative Maduro-wrapped Hoyo de Monterrey Governor cigar is my everyday, go to cigar. Get a lot of comments about the aroma. Great flavor. But inconsistent size, and wrapper. But a great smoke.
