Exceptional.

GregC on 06/24/15

This is a fantastic cigar. Over the past twenty years I have tried to find a tried so many "value" cigars for a daily smoker and results always varied. Now I am extremely pleased with all of the JR Alternitives. This cigar pairs very well with hazelnut coffee in the morning and also pairs well with Glenlivet 15 year French oak scotch after a good grilled meal. These age and marry well in a seasoned humidor. Construction, draw and flavors are beyond expetations for the price.

Great alternative

Gardog44 on 05/24/15

My favorite cigar has always been the Montecristo #2. The JR alternative is a great cigar considering that it's several bucks cheaper than the Montecristo.

Good one.

Pezgallo on 05/29/15

A great way to try new cigars is to throw out a few bids at the auction. That is how I got these Monte alternatives. Very good cigar. Some flavors here you rarely get for this price. Don't believe me? Take the wrapper off and let an old guy smoke it. He will tell you it is damn good. Anybody under 30 will like it until you tell them what it is. Never tell them what it is. They can't handle it.

Good buy

JR'S alternatives are always a good buy. You get the almost same smoke as the name brand but at a fraction of the price.

Share with your friends

Flex on 07/25/15

One of the best "share with your friends" sticks on the list. Perfect for the short smoke after dinner on the patio by the pool listening to some good tunes

JR Alternative Cuban

rjonsutton on 08/02/15

JR Alternative Cuban nice and mild. Occasional wrapper came loose. Easy to light and stayed lit. Burned relatively evenly. These paired well with cinnamon flavored bourbon.

No.2 Review

Stevek11 on 06/12/15

I've smoked probably over a hundred of these cigars and I really enjoy them. Every now and then one may burn uneven but otherwise, they hold up well and taste really good

Flavor and Draw OK, Just to light for me

Dallas Mike on 05/15/15

Good smoke and flavor. I feel the wrapper was a little thin and light for my taste. Several unraveled upon lighting.

Great for the price

Jimelvis on 05/28/15

Any negative things I might say have to be weighed with the great price. I get an inconsistent burn on about 1 out of 4 of the Mont #2. Sometimes with holes burning through well in to the middle of the cigar. I continue to buy them because I can deal with the problems for that price

Price Busters

Don Julio on 07/25/15

the more you smoke the more you need this cigar. If you are like me, you enjoy a fine cabin cigar. Unfortunately that cigar comes with a hearty price tag, when you can get it. This cigar is not a cabin cigar, but for the price, I can justify smoking a lot of them and not have to worry about filing for bankruptcy. The are above average for the price.

Smooooth smoke.

rsiii on 07/09/15

Such a smooth smoke, burns well, and flavors similar to the Cuban Monte 2. A little soft in construction, but very flavorful cigar with no harshness whatsoever. A new cigar in my daily rotation.

Was a very nice cigar for a very good deal! Torpedos are my favorite and to have this option is just incredible. Good flavor and slow burn.

Not bad but not a wish list item

Ben S. on 07/09/15

Average cigar. Great for the price and perfect for a golf outing. Has decent flavor and smokes well. Lacks depth and needs a better finish. This is a good beginner cigar and for the right price. Guess i may have expected to much.

Close, but not quite there

Msatz99 on 07/05/15

A pleasant smoke, but I wouldnt call it a number 2 alternative. The wrapper on this particular cigar had a number of holes in it. Looks like a beetle got into this one. It wasn't enough to hurt the draw, but there was some smoke escaping. Overall a good choice for the budget smoker and a good choice to pack up the humidor with a smoke for your friends who never bring their own.
