Hampton

Morganprince1980 on 06/27/15

Flavor seems to change from cigar to cigar. Draw is very good and smooth. Burns well and when flavor is good. Will buy in future.

Not to bad

Jstyle13 on 08/02/15

Not a bad smoke for the price. And of course Macanudo is kind of the benchmark for a consistent, quality cigar and JR did a pretty good job recreating that in their Alternative line.

Good Investment

js3 on 07/02/15

These are pretty decent cigars. I am near completing half the bundle and other than a bit of tearing of the wrapper on a couple of them, they have been pleasant and mild. I am planning to leave half the bundle in the humidor to age a bit more to see if the flavor improves with time, since it is so mild, but other than that I have no complaints. I may well come back and order some more of these down the road.

Overrated

Mr. M on 09/02/15

Many other reviews claimed this was a great deal for the price. I've had plenty of cigars in this price range that were far superior. Burn was inconsistent and flavor was very acidic with little character.

Surprised

Pat on 08/11/15

I was reluctant to buy these. But I received these sticks and lit them up and was really surprised. They taste pretty close to the realt mac's. Really good /everyday stick. Also you can give them to people who don't know much about stogies or experienced smokers and they'll enjoy them

No Personality

Mr. M on 09/06/15

While the draw on this was fairly smooth, I found the burn to be very inconsistent. The flavor was harsh. I've had better cigars from JR from the same price. Not even a hint of Macanudo.

Wont be ashamed to share with a friend

Gman on 08/10/15

Good inexpensive everyday cigar. Most cheap cigars border on unsmokeable, this cigar actually has good flavor.

Great savings!

bulletholez on 08/04/16

For the savings it's a great alternative to the real Macanudos! I would definitely recommend if you're looking for something with great taste without the hefty price tag.

Excellent Band for the Buck!

Bob on 10/10/17

Good draw, construction, flavor and consistency. It tastes like 50% Macanudo, but the other 50% is pretty good too. Overall, I would rate it at about 80% as good as a Mac...and at about 30% of the cost, it is an excellent bang for the buck!
