good daily

Tad on 06/25/15

Good daily out in the yard. Put together well with a decent medium body to it. Gets a bite at the end but overall a decent rig

Needs fixing

cigarc47 on 06/19/17

something has changed. Used to be a decent little smoke NOW won't stay lit, crumbles on relighting and burns holes in shirts & pants. What changed?

Good knock off

Grower1 on 08/04/16

Good cigar, not a Monty, but not bad. The 50 ring gives it a less beefy feel than the 52 ring of the Monty, ash not quite as solid, but other than that a pretty good cigar for the money.

Great quick smoke

Acme on 11/13/15

Great choice to keep around for unexpected down time. Good flavor, consistent draw, when you don' have time to sit and really relax, this is a great little cigar. Great with a cup of coffee in the shade when you have to kill time.

Not up to par

Cigarsandrolex on 07/03/17

I have liked some of the JR alternatives in the past but these are not up to par. Flavor is ok, draw is ok, but the constitution is very flaky. You can't go more than an inch without needing to ash it.

jr alternativr Montecristo Robusto

rm sacramento on 11/19/15

A tasty stick at a fair price though I have no clue what an authentic Montecristo tastes like, but am certain it costs much more. What I don't know can't hurt me, for if I did try an authentic Montecristo, I'd want to smoke them a lot . I like this JR Alternative . It's a great budget buy.

JR Alternative Montecristo

Dobie on 06/30/17

Poorly and loosely wrapped with a bitter aftertaste. With all the positive reviews, I thought this would be an enjoyable smoke. If this is an alternative to a real Montecristo, then Montecristos quality would have to be horrible (which is not the case). Hope I can give them away without being embarrassed. Will not purchase again nor any other "alternative" cigars.
