10 Star Cigar

Chris. C on 05/16/15

I must admit that the only reason I purchased these cigars was due to the overwhelming good reviews. I received mine Last week and opened the box and fired one up... 5 star review....Really ! These cigars deserve 10. I can tell you that you will not find a cigar this good at this price point.. I found the cigar a solid Mild-Medium with a very solid flavor. I could pick out a coffee caramel taste with a touch of nutmeg ...Perfect burn and draw. Honestly you could not ask for a better cigar for the price....

Great choice

Richard M on 03/01/15

Long time favorite. Excellent flavor, slightly on the mild side of medium full I'd say. Wish they priced it like when I had my first 25 or 30 years ago but still a great value.

Second Review

Chris.C. on 06/04/15

The only reason I am adding a second review is because I have now ordered 3 boxes of this incredible cigar ( Don't offer people any cause word of mouth spreads quickly on just how good they are lol). The consistency is perfect from box to box and really the other reviews speak for themselves. All I can say again is dollar for dollar it can't be beat... My buddy traded me a 20 dollar stick for one and begged me to trade for another 5. I politely declined and we are talking Cubans here folks . Good Cubans ! They are not cheap here in Canada..

Great Value

Bernie on 11/10/15

I've been smoking cigars for over thirty years. I've been purchasing from JR. most of those years. Have tried about everything. For my particular taste this is the best value I have found. This is now my staple and I couldn't be happier with the quality all the way around. Highly recommend this for anyone. Consistently great😉

Good buy

Paul on 03/17/15

I thought I ordered oscuro wrapper, received naturals. They are a bit too light for my taste. Well made cigar though.

J.R. Ultimate Principales

gokenny on 03/16/15

This isn't the first time I purchased the JR ultimate principals, and it will not be the last. The cigar comes inside a nice cedar wrapper, and once unwrapped looks and feels really good. I like the 54 ring size, if it came in a 56 I would buy that also. Looking at the foot, you can clearly see the fairly even circles of wrapper, filler, and binder. It has a pleasant pre light taste that seamlessly goes to a very nice smoke after lighting. You don't have to wait to star tasting the spicy, smoky flavors in this cigar, and that good taste is maintained throughout, unlike some other cigars which cost a lot more. The draw is just right. The only negative , and I'm almost ashamed to say anything negative, is that the ash doesn't hold as long as some other cigars, but to me that is a really minor point. Like I said, I've had these before, and they are all very pleasing. One other thing, which could be said about all cigars. Be sure they are humidified before you smoke them. This is fast becoming my go to cigar.

Hands down the one u pick every time if available

Double B on 03/16/15

Greatest smoke for the price on this earth. With living in Canada and having access to Cubans, this is the one I prefer. The flavor is consistent and amazing..... I'd put in line with a Monty open eagle.... My opinion

Still good, but not quite what I recall

Natch on 10/15/15

It's been several years since I've smoked a JR Ultimate, they used to be quite a staple of mine. I enjoyed it, but it seemed a bit mild and "flat" compared to what I remember. Still, a good, long smoke overall.

All Time Favorite

West Coast Triker on 01/15/15

Smoked many a cigar and for the quality, price, taste, size and aroma, the J&R Ultimate "Principale" with the cedar wrapper has to be among my all time favorites.

Best cigar made

jmoln on 09/02/15

Overall the best cigar out there - flavor, taste, consistency, construction. If I could only buy one cigar for the rest of my life it would be this one. My only regret is they don't make it in maduro anymore.

Always Consistent

farmer on 02/18/15

This is always a consistent enjoyable smoke. For the money very tough to beat. Not overpowering with a great draw and even burn.

Top notch cigar, seriously

Crose15 on 05/01/16

This is a surprising cigar. I usually go for higher-end types but I got a box of these on one of the JR auctions. These compete with any expensive brand in terms of smoothness and flavor. They look great and taste great. Very very good cigar.

An old standby

polish hammer on 04/07/16

JR Ultimates are my " go to", everyday cigar. Good on the back patio, or on the golf course. Consistent flavor, construction and burn. Prefer the maduro however. A solid smoke for the money

Excellent Value

LarryK on 12/27/15

A friend gave me this JR Ultimate to try. What a nice surprise. Great flavor and perfect burn. Smooth and mild. Draw is on the light side but not a deal breaker. Purchased a couple of 5 packs to add to my humidor.

Good consistent cigars at a great price.

burntongue on 12/11/15

These are consistent well made cigars. They have an easy draw and produce a good amount of smoke. They have a tasty wrapper and are mild to medium to me. For under five bucks a stick, you can't go wrong.

This cigar is great. Excellent quality construction. Great draw. Tastes great from stem to stern. Can't beat the quality for the price. Can't go wrong with this little gem.
