Don't understand

Jim Kelly on 07/07/17

I'm beginning to think all jr cigars are the same the last batch was hard burn, uneven burn, loudsy wrapper. I'm appreciative of jr customer service when returned. Thank you

JR Alternative to Montecristo #2

twilkin650 on 07/28/17

I've only smoked a few non-Cuban Montecristos, and they were expensive cigars at around $300 per box. The JR Alernative #2's were bought during the recent $5 off sale so, they were in the $50 dollar a box range with shipping. The Alternative #2s were pretty well constructed cigars that I would rate as mild, rather than medium, and I agree with many reviewers here that they were good for the money spent. They are definitely not $300 dollar a box cigars, but neither are they the bottom of the barrel no-name cigars with the flavor of paper. I think that I will try to find a similar size pyramid with a little more complexity, but I certainly don't feel cheated given the money that I spent.

not Monte Christo #2 alternatives????

dmccurdy418@gmail.com on 08/10/17

Have purchased this alternative many times...do not think I got them this time... they are a square shaped cigar, don't taste the same and they are square. Too bad, have always enjoyed them.

I'm a big fan of the alternatives.

BkinAnnArbor on 07/22/17

I like the No 2. I even did a youtube vid on it. They r a really good cigar. They may not last as long as some but the generally taste fine burn fine and I'm pretty happy with em. I'm amazed that people complain when u consider the price.

I like this cigar

Beller on 07/18/17

I like this cigar. I can't honestly compare it to the Montecristo, not being very familiar with that cigar, but this cigar stands on its own. Good solid construction, burns even throughout, draws well, and strikes, for me, the perfect place between mild and strong. Can't be beat for the price.

Montecristo alternative

SteveM on 10/10/17

The lot I received are almost Maduro. That said, I smoked one immediately when I received them instead of letting them season in the humidor. I was very happy with the stick. Nice medium body cigar that tasted quite nice for about the first 2/3rds of the stick. Construction was excellent. No cracking (must have been in a good spot in JRs humidor) tight wrap, excellent consistent burn with light gray ash throughout the length. The draw was no problem. For a little over $2 for the stick, it's five star. Compared to ALL cigars I'd give it about 3.9 (just shy of 4 stars). A super value! Will help my stash of Montecristo Whites last longer!

Smooth and ralxing

Wolfy on 07/14/17

I only had a few of these cigars from the bundle, but the draw and smoothness will make your knees buckle. I've tried 3-4 other JR Alternatives, and this is by far my favorite. So far each cigar has burned even and no problems with the wrapper coming away from the cigar, Well worth the price.

Great Value

Cigar Store Indian on 06/27/17

I've sampled many cigars looking for a daily smoke. Ultimately landed on this smoke 3 years ago and have never left it. Cant find a better cigar for the money...tough to find one for double the money.
