INCONSISTENT DRAW

cmarcush on 03/10/17

Have smoked for many years. An enjoyable cigar. Biggest complaint is the inconsistent draw. Up to 60% in each bundle are so tightly packed that I have to let them dry for weeks before being able to enjoy. Most recent bundle had 6-8 with holes punched in them, making them impossible to smoke without a finger over the hole(s).

Aweful

Bethesda Ray on 12/03/15

I recently developed a taste for Cuban style cigars, but they're hard to come by and expensive! I saw these in the JR store in Washington DC and couldn't pass up the price and opportunity to get Cuban flavor for a bargain price. I should have known better. The only word to describe the flavor is "harsh". So much so that any other flavors that may have been present could not come through. On the positive side, the cigars are well made, draw reasonably well and were consistent between the 4 I smoked. I took the rest of the bundle into work and put them in the break room for others to take.

A good smoke!

M.r Bob on 03/18/17

I found these to be a good consistent smoke for everyday. Not too strong, and a good flavor profile. Having not had a Cuban Smoke since 1958, I can't say whether they taste like their counterparts or not. But as I said, They are a very good smoke.

My Commuting Cigar

Joe on 04/07/16

I have been smoking these for a long time as a cheap alternative to Montecristo No. 3's. They are more than adequate, but the quality is uneven at times in terms of draw and the wrapper flaking. Not as flavorful or enjoyable as a real Monte, but it does the trick on my commute home.

My Favorite JR Cuban Alernative

R. A. Kobus on 01/13/16

I have smoked two bundles of these, and although I didn't find it resembled teh actual Cuban version, I really liked them - a lot! A full strength cigar, I am about to order my third bundle.

Great smoke

Glen1tx on 08/07/17

Very well constructed even burning and stays lit. I smoke these down to the nub. Great value for the money. I haven't tried the regular Montecristo but these won't let you down.

Some of these in my bundle were over humidified... But after dry boxing for a couple of days they are dead on

Spotty Draw

Puffer on 10/17/15

Excellent cigar, but draw was hard on more than half of them. I often have this problem with these cigars. Sometimes they are perfect, sometimes not so much.

Wrapper flakes

mac on 06/03/15

This is one of my favorites but the wrapper flakes to much. This tends to be a big problem with the alternatives.
