Quality of these cigars have gone way down

bishopt on 04/17/18

the quality of these cigars have gone way down, while the price gradually increases up. This was my go to cigar. I will be looking for another brand and not getting these any more:( They switched tobaccos and wrappers for these cigars.

very happy with this purchase, excellent cigars, exceptional value. The first one I smoked was perfect, no issues at all. great draw, good smoke, mild to medium taste, almost a medium strength. these are premium long filler, burned 2 inches before ashing. could not be more stoked with my first purchase ever from JR

This use to be my best cigar

bishopt on 01/29/18

I am not sure if I got 2 bad batches or the quality of this cigar is declining. The price keeps rising while the quality has been declining. The last 2 batches over the last 4 months have been terrible. The leaf has been coming off, taste, construction and draw has been terrible, I hope I just got a couple of batches in my last 2 orders. This is my go to cigar.

No Backbone

This cigar was so mild, it was almost without character. I can’t say I was blown away. Not BAD, but either did it give any reason to linger over it. I will not likely order this again.

Cigar is okay but the last few batches have been hard to keep lit. I know it's not my humidor because I'm not having any issues with my other cigars. They seem to be wrapped a little tighter.

Codeit on 06/19/18

No where near the flavor of a Monticristo. Worst JR Alternative I've ever bought.

Not worth the time to light.

V3tek on 06/10/18

Got some in a sampler pack. Al wrappers split after being lit less than 5 minutes. Tasted horrible any way. Fortunately, the others in the sampler were good.

LR Monticristo

Some cigars, maybe 10 percent, don't draw properly, sometimes difficult, sometimes tunneling, sometimes ski slope. Most do smoke well.

Great value

druss300 on 03/25/18

It's a great everyday cigar. I would class it as mild, rather than medium. A wonderful value.

WHAT HAPPENED?

wengak on 02/21/18

I am not sure if I simply received a "bad batch" or if the quality is declining for this cigar that I have always considered as a "go to.".The construction of the cigar is very good (i.e. consistent & even burn). I characterize the most recent blend flavor as "moderately harsh." Heretofore, it was always most mild & pleasurable.

Montecristo DR No. 2 JR Alternative

Dave L on 02/14/18

Bought a bundle a while ago and JR offered on special so I bought again. Still have about 6 of the bundle left and out of those smoked most were very difficult to keep lit and the draw was poor

Bad Cigar

Nick on 02/13/18

Cigar does not hold a burn at all, had to consistently relight. Burns spicy and no flavor. Taste like burning leaves essentially.

Good smoke, but no real Montecristo

Osnofla D'Cuban on 05/24/18

Can't go wrong with the price. Great value. Bought these after watching one of Nick's videos. Good smoke.

Looking for an alternative to JR alternatives

Nyarch on 05/17/18

Not as good as last time purchased. The cigars were so loose they burned way to fast to enjoy. Not much flavor either. Hopefullly it was a flook as I usually enjoy the alternatives.
