A good smoke!

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

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.

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).

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.
My Favorite JR Cuban Alernative

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.
