Surprisingly good

Bob W on 03/12/17

Bought these along with Romeo Juliet Bullys. The JR alternatives were fine and construction excellent. My Bullys were not up to standard....wrappers quickly fell apart.

Good burn for the buck

Andrew on 05/29/18

I keep the humidity up a bit in my humidor to smoke these JR Alternative cigars. The draw seems to be better for me that way. Over all a good cheap alternative to name brand cigars that gives consistent flavor and burn throughout for a much cheaper price.

The JR Alt. CAO Gold Robusto

BLT2652 on 04/19/18

I have read other reviews about this cigar in reference to its inconsistant draw, dry wrapper, bad flavor, etc. I would have to strongly disagree. My experience with this cigar is just the opposite. I find its flavor and draw to be comparable to other more expensive cigars in the same category. It has a great flavor and I would highly recomend it.

Big day

Big daddy on 01/05/18

This is my favorite cigar, after a long day of work sitting down with one and a glass of bourbon is the best way to finish a day. Away burns even and good favor

A very good value

Tom Bruels on 02/11/17

This was my first purchase of JR Alternatives. I wasn't sure of what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. I think the average cigar smoker would have a hard time telling the difference between this and the CAO Gold. I've only had one so far, but it was well constructed, a nice draw, and had a nice flavor. If this holds true for the rest of the bundle, I'll be trying more of the JR Alternatives. I've smoke more expensive, name-brand cigars that weren't as nice as this.

Good smoke

JoeZ on 09/14/16

This is a great sick for the price. Burn good most have a nice white ash. I've been buying these for years and not too often do I get a bad one. I like them better than the original cao golds.

One of the best

Heywood on 08/06/16

I've been trying various Alts to find the good ones and this is very good. Very well made and smokes perfectly even every time - haven't had a dud in the bundle. Nice sweet tobacco flavor that leaves a pleasant baked-bread type of aftertaste. A really good cigar for the money.

CAO special!

Rocketteman on 06/05/17

Sorry guys but this cigar fell very short of the alternative Monte Christo's I normally buy! Several of these terrible draw & a couple burned very uneven??! Love your products normally but not this one?! Thx, JD

DISAPPOINTED - Super Tight Draw

Nedd Mudd on 08/01/17

DISAPPOINTED!!! First one out of the pack and the draw is WAY to tight. It should not be like sucking a super thick milkshake. Seems to be a consistent theme with JR Alternatives. Should have bought quality and not tried to "cheap" route. Lesson learned.
