Not a bad stick for the money

Bill on 06/21/15

Certainly not a bad stick for the price point, but there are better JR Alternatives available. These are rolled well, have a good draw and burn evenly. The only downside is that they lack a bit in the flavor department, but I suppose that is subjective.

Good smoke

I have had Cuban Montecristo #1 many times in the past and this is one of my go to smokes that replicates the #1 perfectly.

Knock-off Monte

A good smoke. Not a Montecristo but well worth the price. Quite well built for an inexpensive cigar.

For the price

12string on 05/23/16

Is it a Montecristo? No! Exactly the same as a Montecristo? No!! But it is a real fine substitute for the price

Yes, I'm a big fan

Luger9 on 04/25/16

I really enjoy the MC No 1 but the price keeps creeping up. I alternate between quitting entirely and puffing MC #1s like a cooling tower on 3-mile island.

Nice cigar

TOM227 on 09/02/15

I really enjoy these cigars. The real thing is much too expensive in Canada, but these are very nice. I travel to the Southern U.S. often & try to stop in to shop

Keep to the real thing

Cptringo on 06/27/15

This was an okay cigar, but once you've had the actual Montecristo it really doesn't come closeAnd all it does is disappoint

Fire it up!

rockcave on 10/06/15

This has been my "Go To" cigar for years. Very consistent in flavor and drool factor. I have compared to MC Number 1 and found little difference. The burn is even. Draw is better with a plug cut vs a notch, but that is expected with any smoke. Never had a runner as you might expect from a cheap cigar.
