Good smoke for the money

HRLeno on 08/20/15

This is an exceptionally good smoke for the money. I use this as my daily enjoyment for the last year (since discovering it) and thoroughly enjoy them.

JR cuban alternative

Excellent copy. Draw, Construction , Consistency are top drawer. Flavor could be a little better as it is somewhat lighter than original.

Good chewy smoke.

Tim Winter on 09/24/15

Nice chewy thick feeling to the smoke.... about 6 on the pepper/spice meter. Hints of brown sugar/vanilla. Age will certainly help this batch, like most of the JR Alt's. But man, they are worth getting a couple of bundles and aging at home. Honestly, I am tired of spending $8-$10 for a "treat" cigar and having them taste mediocre.... Occasionally they are worth their price, but I have been burned more often than not. Once you find an Alt blend you like, stock up and reap the benefits. Currently, my fav's are this one and the JR Cuban Alt to Romeo Y Julieta Club King. The Romeo has a bit more kick and lighter body to it.... definitely a different blend.

Got burnt on this smoke

Across410 on 12/23/17

Tried and tried on this smoke. Get lots of tunneling and wrappers coming apart. Also it’s a smoke I have to hit very lightly or it gets bitter, to the point it’s unsmokable. It may just be the bundle I bought, but I’m unwilling to try again Mild flavored cigar with decent taste When burns correctly.

Wow

elbow on 12/14/17

Just ordered these on a whim and a price, wow, first one smoked, all is good Cubano land. Closest thing I have had since my real Cuban many years ago. This daily smoker has just had a change of venue, very impressed. Just a beautiful smoke, try it, you’ll like it....

Buy em, share em, smoke em

Pmisner on 11/29/17

Every body I give one too wants to buy them. A great smoke at a great price point.. lasts exactly as long as my dog walk, so that's a plus.

Excellent Bundle

FaceMan on 11/16/17

Very good smoke for an excellent and more appropriate price. In the bundles, there may be one or two smokes that are not rolled correctly, i.e., a hole in roll, but that can happen in any cigar even pricey ones. Overall, very good smoke and most consistent in flavors and quality.

JR Cuban Alternative La Gloria Cubana Corona

MrRivera on 09/01/17

I reorder this smoke as it is consistently good; once in a while there is a throw-away stogie, but overall, this is a very good quality and enjoyable smoke. The bland is decent, somewhat medium-body, and usually burns well and thus, has a good draw. Very good smoke for the price and not inconsistent as many of the JR Alternate's in which I've had to throw out 2-4 per bundle, but again, not with this blend or stogie.

There are alternatives

Daily Smoker on 05/28/18

Some could be smoked others not. JR has many others Alternatives that are superior to these.

Great bang for the buck.

Sss on 03/16/17

My go to fall back if I dont want to spend a buck or cant find a better deal. No risk, always good smokes. Once in a while one is a tough draw, but killer price. Side by side with the real thing, its not. Otherwise, great deal.

Excellent Consistent Stoogie!

MrRivera on 03/07/18

Excellent overall; the draw is very good as well as the construction. The flavors are good as well; of course, not like a Cubano, but nevertheless, a very good enjoyable quality smoke especially for the price. Draw is key and very good as already mentioned ; the wrap is a nice chocolate color that lacks veinage (thankfully). Further, the cigar is packed well, i.e., not squishy or mushy. Flavors will always vary, because smoking is subjective, but usually hints of cedar, wood, and coffee bean are prevalent. It is excellent to pair with coffee, espresso, or a latte. Bourbons or Cognac are also good with this cigar too.

Dried out on delivery

DBG on 02/21/18

Horrible. Half the cigars were dried out when they arrived. Never order these again.
