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.

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.

Inconsistent

Jmkm000 on 08/16/18

As the costs have increased the quality and consistency seem to have slipped quite a bit. My recent experience with the bundles are about 50/50. at current pricing that’s just unacceptable. That said... when they are good, they are very good... but, when there’re bad (bad draw, twigs & branches, burns like a forest fire, hot...hot...hot!

Still A Good Cigar for the $$

Hot Corner on 07/13/18

I have been buying this cigar for 20 years. Its my "go to" smoke. I have notice the consistency/quality has declined recently though. I seem to be getting more "duds" per bundle. Either too tight or too loose. However, it is a great tasting smoke at a good price. The flavor is awfully close to the MC#2. Great daily smoke or golf cigar. I will continue to be a buyer until something better comes along.

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.

Made me think about quitting cigars

Roger A. on 08/12/18

Holes in the wrapper on several, and they all (so far) have almost instantly split. By the time I get it to light, it looks like it exploded. I hate to waste anything so I've resorted to wrapping them in a old big label with painters tape to keep it together for a few minutes. I wouldn't put my name on these.

Long White Ash

Hatchetman1314 on 07/17/18

Like VMG I am always skeptical of Cuban Monte #2 comparisons. I'm not going to make that comparison, because I had the exact same experience as VMG. Here's what makes JR's comparible to the Cuban, it is Med-Full, wrapped tight with a silky smooth wrapper, and it holds a long white ash up to 3". But you ain't gonna find no Cuban #2 5-pack for $11.40 USD.
