Not again

Bil on 01/29/18

Got these and they were hard. put 'em in the humidor for 2-3 weeks before trying one. It was dry, the taste was good - if you could keep it lit. It burned unevenly, leaving a long sideways ash, as if it had burned faster down one side than the other. The end would feather out if you left it in the ashtray and stepped away for 5-10 minutes and you always have to relight it. It was very consistent, too - all the cigars in the bundle were made by 1st year students.

Poor quality but cheap enough

Ed on 04/23/18

The product is inconsistent. Poor construction on over 1/2 the package. Draw as hard and burned uneven on 60%. Wrapper kept peeling on 40%. Hard to keep lit. But given the cost I can live with it.

YOU DON'T EVEN GET WHAT YOU PAID FOR

bontis on 11/29/18

Terrible quality. They are low priced but even at the price they are they aren't worth it. Chunks fall off and burn holes in clothing. JR should offer a rebate for crap.

Good AND bad.

bontis on 11/01/18

Satisfactory for a $2.50 cigar. Only problem is with bait & switch by JR. They offered a 15% discount for "BIRTHDAY" which I entered but never received at the final checkout.

Terrible Cigar

roberthugo48 on 12/08/18

I would never buy them again. No comparison to JR Alternative to Partagas #10. Taste is way below what I would call decent. Almost impossible to keep lit. The only reason I bought them was my normal buy cited above was out of stock. But never again.

smoking for 18 months

BeachPete on 06/14/18

Good daily smoke for the money but sometimes I get a bundle that is hard to draw or to dry. I buy enough that if they are to dry a few weeks in the humidor and good to go.

Didn’t like them.

V3tek on 06/10/18

I got 5 of these in a sampler pack and they were the second worst of the bunch. Could hav just rolled up some paper and smoked it.

Well Made, Flavor OK.

foursaunders@cox.net on 05/29/18

Better than bundled cigars from most places. Very mild. Depth of flavor is lacking. I layer these in my humidor between sheets of paper towels soaked in Bourbon and let them set for 1 month at least. Keep adding bourbon!

You get what you pay for

Braytwostory on 10/28/18

3 out of 5 these were poorly rolled. Inconsistent tobacco, very few were the same. A little disappointing but you get what you pay for. Cheap deal equals cheap cigars. Second cigar fell apart. 3 total out of the 20 disintegrated. I love Churchill's in general. These definitely did not measure up to Churchill's I've had of other brand's.

Not Even Close!

Mike T on 05/08/18

Not Sure if I got a bad batch or what but there are bad. Very hard to even smoke. I don't think I'd take them again if they were free.

Wrapped too tight

Joe M on 05/07/18

The cigar roll is inconsistent. At least half of the bundle are wrapped so tight, I can't get a good draw. When I do get a good one, the flavor and experience are good.

JR Ashton Churchill

JRASCH on 08/07/18

Can not keep lit between draws. Subpar taste. Hard draw even after cutting in two. Absolutely unsmokeable.
