Good for the $

BigD on 08/21/18

I’ve bought 20 of these, all in 5 packs, so far I’d say they are well made & smoke very well but also have inconsistent flavors (some mild, some darker) It’s a good everyday smoke for me & my friends like them as well.

a shame

bpeters on 02/22/19

I have been buying cigars from JR for over 20 years. 18 of which were great. The last 2 years have been going from bad to worse. It seems there is absolute 0 QC for JR alternatives anymore, and worse the price continues to go up. I no longer find JR Cigar a Value.

As close to the Cuban Monte as you can get without spending $300

Ib93 on 09/22/18

Excellent cigar especially for the money. I have had the fortune to smoke Cuban Montes over the years and believe it or not these are very very close. The construction is very good and the draw is great! The flavors of the cigar are almost exact. The main differences are the band and price. For those who are looking for the exact construction and flavor of the Cuban Monte #2 feel free to spend the $300+ it takes to get them or you can buy these at a very reasonable price and have close to the same smoking experience.

JR Alternative Cuban Monte no.2

Outlaw on 02/18/19

This is a beautiful cigar. The wrapper looks like milk chocolate, the construction perfect, the draw superb. Cool and slow burning it’s a pleasure to smoke. Medium bodied and flavorful at great price point I’m sure I’ll buy again

Bitter. Most were very bitter right out of the bundle. Draw was inconsistent and I had to relight many over and and over. Disappointed.

Nice Smoke

Scott on 02/22/19

I have bought these for nearly 6 yrs, with always several bundles at a time. For the most part generally good and a nice smoke. I have compared them to the real Mont #2 Habano, and while a little harsher it is also a lot less expensive. A good one for just having one with friends.

Solid Daily Driver!

Brimstone0323 on 08/26/18

These will have a regular home in my humidor. I can't say that I've ever had the opportunity to smoke some of the high options many of the other reviewers have, but I enjoyed this stick all the way through. Maybe it's not the greatest I've ever had, but a solid daily driver with a great flavor and a nice rich smoke. Far better smoke than I would expect for the price.

Nice smoke for my first try with one

Cubz83 on 08/22/18

Very nice smoke. Today was my first time trying one and I have to say I am impressed. For two dollars per stick you really can’t beat it. I smoke plenty of cigars from these to drew estates and higher dollar smokes and this is a pretty good one. It will be my go to daily for a while. There is also a good one to give to friends and family who are visiting and not break the bank. Good job JR

Great flavor and draw

Bo on 10/08/18

Great value. Flavor and draw very close to the Monticristo it is designed to emulate. I have had a couple that burned unevenly.
