Good smoke ... GREAT PRICE

A real nice smoke at an incredible price. You don't always need name brand bands to enjoy a good cigar. I recommend them.

JR does it again.

Antonio on 02/24/16

Smooth smoke. Great draw. Even burn. Great taste. A quality cigar overall. Nicely done. I am very pleased. Just like a Mac. And I am a Mac loyalist.

Macanudo Vintage 1

Not quite a real Macanudo but close enough considering the price difference. A nice long smoke with an even burn.

Very good quality, great price, best match to original

AWA - Nashville on 02/11/16

Probably my favorite JR Alternative. Consistent cigar with nice flavor. Closest match I have found of the alternative to the real brand. Cigar quality and price makes it a no brainer v. buying the real Macanudo.

JR Alternative Vintage 1

Jibeam on 09/10/17

Got a bundle of these...thought good for the price. Recently got 2nd bundle...ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE!! So green they won't even burn, taste like pasture grass. Never ever again. I think a "Dutchmaster" would be better.

Not so good

Rudy on 08/19/17

Used to be a great go to cigar. Lately most of the bundles have been very tight and borderline bitter. This in addition to the shipment tracker no longer working is really starting to show the downward turn of jr. I buy 4 bundles a month, so this is a reviw based on several weeks of cigars. Customer service really doesnt want to be bothered with complaints. Such a shame and decline.

Easing off

Grob on 08/14/17

Since previous review, have enjoyed three with fine flavor, decent draw and acceptable ash and wrapper. Had considered JR's storage and filler length problematic, but now downgrade only consistency. Seems luck of the draw.

Worst experience from alternative.

Grob on 08/05/17

Tried on strength of reviews, and disappointed. Flavor was fine, but ash was wild and short, one canoed and two simply unwrapped as being smoked.
