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.

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

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.

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.
