JR Alternative Nub 460 Connecticut

Dgar on 09/11/15

I purchased a bundle of The JR Alternative Nub 460 Connecticut, they were all excellent. The cigars were very smooth and creamy, with a hint of peppper. The Cigars burned very uniform . I gave a friend several of the cigars, who is a big Nub fan, he really liked the JR Alternative. Wrapper DID NOT TEAR, oe PEEL I would definitely purchase again!

Snubbin' the Nubs

penpainter on 09/03/15

Was buying Nubs, or waiting for a sale to be able to afford them, when I decided to try these alternatives; I do not believe I will be paying the Nub price again!

Not Bad for a Knockoff...

MDJordanSr on 06/10/15

Good cigar. Quite comparable to a Nub for the price. They are dry. Hydrating as I write.

I have found the jr alternative to be as good as the name brand and buy them when I'm in the area. Good stick for a great price.

Don't Buy

Bill on 06/04/15

Cigar is not a Nub, but is okay. This is the first time I've tried these knockoff substitutes and I am not impressed. I would rather pay full price for the true cigar - I can tell a difference. The cigar when lit and smoked (slowly) begin to split and the wrapper peeled!

Dude save your $42 bucks...

KURTSRQ on 09/03/15

It's not a NUB... period. Arrived dry as dust, burned sideways and the wrappers split. Had them sit in my 1000 cigar humidor for 3 months to no avail. Good for cutting the grass with a cold beer.

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!

Good value n flavor, uneven burn.

Lemons1513 on 07/24/15

Not bad for the price. Flavor profile very similar to the original. Did have some uneven burning issues. (At first I thought because I had the first few on the golf course, but even when relaxing, had canoeing issues with almost half the bundle. Suppose that's more likely on a fatty like this, but still a bit disappointing

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.

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

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.

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.
