What a nice surprise

jake607 on 05/21/15

Got to admit I was quite pleased. I wanted something shorter than the sticks I have been getting and thought I could stand to go with a fuller flavor. Glad I made that call! Construction was a little loose as was the draw but it was consistent throughout the smoke. Good interpretation of the La Glorias at a much better price. I will do this again.

This will be my daily!

riggs8402 on 01/21/16

JR Alternatives never cease to surprise me. All that I have tried have been really great sticks. This one is no exception, probably the best of them JR Alternatives I had, to date. Straight out of the bundle, these had a robust explosive flavor. They needed to aging in the humidor at all, but the longer they sit the more I know I will always have a bundle of these for a good daily smoke!

The BEST

Randy from Avenel on 07/30/16

Could not be happier. Great construction and the flavor is out of this world. Gave one to a friend who tends to be a little critical. HE LOVED IT!!!!! Ordering my second bundle. Incredible value.

Fair stick

Pete on 01/21/16

This alternative to the real stick falls short, flavor is so-so, very inconsistent from smoke to smoke. The material used seem subpar, brown substance is found from wrapper on my fingers, almost like a fake spray to make the wrapper look maduro. Burn is uneven on each stick I've burned. Having said all that, it's an alternative that wouldn't be bad if I had never had the real thing, of coarse minus the issues I noted. Great cheap stick for a new cigar smoker, not for those whose palettes are distinguished. I'll pay the price next time for the real McCoy.

Tasty Treat

Zeit Geist on 06/04/16

This is an excellent smoke. I have it when I have only 40 minutes and want a clean, sweet finish. A great value and it tasty!

Love Them

RCFairing on 12/28/15

Everything you could want in a short smoke. I keep them in my humidor in my shop and use them for an excuse to take a break.

Nise Short Smoke

RCFairing on 12/23/15

Nice short smoke that stays together well, burns well, holds a decent ash, and has a great flavor. Definitely worth the price. I will order this one again.
