Pleased

I prefer the JR alt Punch Presidents (JRPUPR). However, the last several bundles were somewhat disapointing. They all canoed and tunneled, with slow draw. So, I thought I would divert my choice. I tried these. Much better! Very nice draw, didn't tunnel or canoe . And the price is right. Thank you.

A pleasurable smoke

Trafficman on 08/02/16

Very good cigar for smoking on a daily basis. Good draw with a medium flavor that gives a slightly peppery aftertaste. A bit stronger than rhe Alternative Ashton, but still has good character. It also gives a good 1 1/4 hours of enjoyable pleasure.

No draw

Very disappointed. The flavor was fine but half of the cigars would not draw and were disposed of.

Not as good as the others.

I normally have nothing bad to say about JR Alternatives. I've been smoking cigars for 12 years, and I always have a bundle of JR Alts in one of my humidors. Usually its the Excalibur III or JR Ultimate Toro. These were hard to draw, and as a previous post said, they have a dirt taste. I will continue to buy JR Alts, just not this bundle.

Pass on these...

It's a good thing I purchased this bundle at a clearance price, if not I'd be upset. The draw and burn is good; but the flavor is horrible. It's almost like I'm smoking dirt. These will end up being my give away cigars for the freeloader buds.

Good budget sticks.

Pete on 08/10/17

Worried about the draw problems others had, but mine were fine right out the box. They areally very mild and great for inexpensive daily stick. I will buy again.

JR Alternative H Upmann Colombo ( JRUPCO)

CubanConnoisseur9 on 08/15/16

Cigar has a combination of earth and spice flavors. Great cigar for the price, just slightly difficult on the draw. Cigar

JR Alternative H. Upmann Colombo

AJD on 07/10/16

Not the worst affordable cigar I've purchased from JR, and not the best.No consistancy in the cigar construction. Oe cigar draws smoothly, the next one or two are tough to draw on.
