Not bad at all!!

dat cigar dude on 10/07/15

Bought these about a week ago. Shipping was fast, was a little skeptical after some of the reviews but took a chance any way. In comparison to nub sure it isn't exact, but it is a damn good alternative! Burns a little fast, but not a deal breaker, flavor a tad off, but not bad. Overall I'm pleased, will definitely be buying these as my every day cigar going forward!

Great for the price.

Reverendme on 11/29/16

I have bought this bundle several times. It is a nice and mellow smoke. Like the Nub, it smokes for an amazingly long time for such a short stick. The flavor is very comparable to the Nub, the construction is close, but no cigar. :-) I highly recommend this cigar for the price. As a matter of fact, I'm going to buy another bundle now.

Give these a try if you like Nub conneticut

paul s on 01/08/16

I bought a real nub locally before I tried the JR version and I am happy I did. I did not have any wrapper problems and the taste and burn of my first 4 have proved well worth the order. Going to try the Hemingway's from JR next., too. I am not a cigar snob, not rich, but I am smoking well with these.

don't buy Poorly made

Nj567 on 12/31/15

This is a good cigar but very poorly made. They are dry and split the wrappers on half the cigars. This is the last purchase of them You lose half to splitting

Nub Subs a good alternative

Camera41 on 11/21/15

I tried this JR Alternative Connecticut Nub after having been a regular Nub smoker and found these to be a very good substitute for the originals. They draw well and burn evenly. The taste is slightly off from the originals, but acceptable, especially at the great price. I have been through 5 so far and have NOT experienced any tears or falling apart of the wrappers as some previous reviews indicated. I will order again and also try the maduro version.

M-F go to smoke

Mc2 on 04/30/16

Good daily smoke. Mild on the tongue, even burn, and won't take an entire evening to work through. Great for an after work with a drink smoke. Definitely my M-F go to.

Nice but not worth the cost.

Bernie on 03/25/16

Enjoyed these a lot. Great taste, good draw. I don't think they are worth the $40 though.

Love them!!

JunkMan on 03/13/16

I love the JR alternates. Maybe not exactly the same but so close you can hardly tell the difference. Definitely worth every penny.

Good nub

Puffin on 03/12/16

These are pretty close to the real thing, but the price point is much better. Not dry and burned well through and through. I am a big fan.

Nun is a Nub

The kid JimmyV on 07/03/17

I have gone from a non smoker to enjoying 2 sticks a day in the last year. To me these Alt Nubs were every bit as enjoyable as the authentic.

NUB Alternative

ptwisdale on 05/31/17

Great little smoke. Extremely smooth and mild and great when you want a change from full, darker cigars. Being economical is a great plus!

Second to Nub

Derek3112 on 03/29/16

I love this cigar. A close second to the Nub. Smooth smoke on the lesser $ side
