A good smoke

over48 on 06/09/15

I have purchased 2 bundles and have been satisfied for the most part. The wrappers are inconsistent and split on about a third of the cigars when smoked. Some are made very tight.

A Great Imitation of La Gloria's

Curley574 on 07/17/15

La Gloria's are one of my top shelf cigars. The consistency of the aroma is identical in the JR imitations.

A Cigar to enjoy

jackhumma on 08/18/15

The draw was easy and the flavor was enjoyable. I am very particular about ribs in the Cigar construction and this Cigar was smooth without ribs. From beginning to end the flavor was consistent and the burn was even to the end of the cigar.

Some good, some bad

Old timer on 05/15/15

Some bundles are good, and others are too tight. I end up using a bamboo skewer to loosen them up. When they are good, they are *very* good.

Good everyday smoke

jas904 on 06/25/15

This is my everyday smoke and have been for a few years. Two bundles last me about a month. I'm a full-bodied smoker and these are good. Are these great, no, but for $2 a piece they are good. I splurge on an Ashton VSG, which is my favorite. But again for everyday smoking I've yet to be disappointed.

Solid budget cigar

jdnfan on 06/14/15

A solid inexpensive cigar. Nice mild flavor and good draw. I've had some construction issues, but at this price that's to be expected.

Good cigar

Iceman on 01/30/16

This is my everyday smoke. MOST are very good, but there are the ones that are impossible to draw, burn unevenly and split. Seldom all at one time.

Very Good Smoke

RJP on 08/23/15

This is my first bundle of the JR Alternative to La Gloria Cubana Churchill. I had only one cigar from the bundle where the rapper begin to unwind towards the very end. Otherwise the smoke was very good flavor as well.

No longer the same

El Mano on 08/27/15

I have purchased this cigar consistently for the past three years. The quality of this budget cigar has changed significantly over the past two months. The fill and wrap is excessive, making the draw impossible. The content of the fill contains heavy branches, reducing the structure, flavor and consistency of the cigar shipments to a below average cigar. I certainly hope that JR changes its suppler and corrects this problem -- but for now, I'm staying away from this cigar.

Getting to be a pain

Old timer on 01/04/16

My last order was for 6 bundles, and I'm on my last bundle. That's 5 bundles in less than 2 weeks! I prefer a "V" cut and most have not drawn well. Using a 'guillotine' cutter some were OK, if I cut off 1/2 to 1 inch. Many needed a bamboo skewer to loosen them up. I've even had to throw 5-6 out of each bundle because no matter I did, they did not draw. OK if you want to chew, but I want to smoke. I usually smoke 5-6 cigars a day, so this is getting to be a waste of money!!

Good value, but not a great cigar

More4Me on 06/11/15

Good value, but not a great cigar. Draw is inconsistent and they often fall apart, but I keep buying them. 😯. May be time for something new.

seconds

TJD on 11/06/15

This last order was much better than the Consuegra #14. Why did the wrapper have that those were seconds? They tasted like a dry corn cob. The latest ones are great.

Las Cabrias wrapper

14tricker on 05/23/15

Only tried these because the last few boxes of Las Cabrilas Balboas have fallen apart ( wrapper ). I noticed the Las Cabrias have added a second band to solve the problem. Bad quality control !

A great alternative

RandyM on 06/14/15

You can't beat this cigar for value and flavor. When you're on the golf course, why spend the big bucks for a premium cigar when you will get the same satisfaction from this JR cigar.

I have chosen these for several years now. I enjoy the way this cigar smokes. At this price, it's a valuable choice.

Mainstay purchase

Drowen on 03/11/16

I've been buying this stoggies for probably a decade. Not only is each cigar consistent in construction, flavor and draw, but so is the consistency between cigars and bundles.

Not Impressed - Yet

DonC on 06/07/16

These may improve with time in my humidor, but right out of the bundle they are hot, bitter, and taste lousy, like moldy leaves. Nice construction and good draw. If this is anywhere near what a real La Gloria tastes like, I'll never buy one.
