Bolivar Belicoso Have bought two bundles. Every other cigar is plugged. 1 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso ordered two boxes and they are fantastic. i smoke 80% cubans and 20% nicaraguans. great smoke for my non cuban humidor. 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Smoked this stick until it was ready to burn my fingers. In other words i liked it. Great value will definitely buy again. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso I've been smoking about four bundles per month of this cigar for several years now. Although they are somewhat inconsistent in the manufacturing process what do you expect from a handmade cigar? The only complaint I have is that the price has increased dramatically and the ability to use check-out coupons has disappeared! 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso These have been an excellent cigar over the years...but recently the first outer wrapping has been splitting causing the cigar to semi come apart which leads me to toss it prematurely. Does not occur all the time maybe 2 or 3 times per bundle. Please resolve Otherwise an excellent smoke! 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Awesome try at being a good cigar. All the JR alternatives are good. Great for the wallet 3 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Best ever cigar so good more than box worthy nothing compares ... lol let's be real for a second it's a pretty good smoke but not mind blowing great price good construction 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Doesn't really taste Cuban but it's a nice torpedo that is well worth the price. I prefer Nicaraguan tobacco over Cuban anyway 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso I am ordering my fourth bundle so I must like them. While I have never smoked a real Cuban Bolivar this is a great cigar. Honest tobacco flavor load's of pleasant smelling smoke nice construction! Can't beat it. JR Alternatives are always the best choice for a great budget cigar---or just a good cigar. in general. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso This is my third selection of a JR knock off and have been very pleased all three times. Before lit has a wonderful fragrance. I've had several of the genuine Cuban original of this and this one is a pleasant copy. Highly recommended. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso It's a good cigar 3 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Nice smokes been excited to try these. I don't know how they compare to the real ones but I like the full bodied flavor. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso By far one of the best alternatives I've had. The draw is perfect. The flavor a bit off from habano..and I mean just a bit. The burn is even and excellent. Definitely worth every penny. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Pretty close you almost got it. Almost as good as the real thing some of them were harder to draw than others however awesome for the most part 3 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso I have been disappointed with my first few sticks in this bundle - hard draw and harsh taste. I'll let them soak in my humidor for a couple of months and try again. 1 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso I always liked Bolivar so I tried some of these..JR nailed it! Packed with flavor..great construction and draw..spicy and nutty 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso It's is not a Bolivar. It is good but it is not the same. Lesser quality construction with a looser ash uneven burn and not as smooth of a wrapper. Flavor is close but the Bolivar has more punch to it. For the price it's a great cigar for what it is. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso thos really floored me truely i was thinking a cheap knock off and wow geeat smoke great job jr 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Hand made so the construction is inconsistent but not to a fault. This also contributes to air leaks from occasional small holes in the wrapper. Overall a good cigar with excellent flavor. I must like 'em because I've been smoking them every day for more than five years! 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso I've only had one but will review again after all twenty are gone. Couldn't draw without sticking a toothpick in both ends and then it still was hard to smoke... Trying ice pick on next one. 2 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso I am always impressed with alternatives. They are inexpensive and are truly a great smoke. I buy them often. 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Set your thoughts on an OK smoke. The smoke is good. Draw is average to slightly tight. The build is solid the cigar doesn't come apart and has a consistent feel or firmness throughout. The taste is a little on the bitter to burnt side. I definitely would smoke 2 back to back my mouth would feel like a dogs a** what ever that feels and tastes like. But one is tolerable. If your a premium cigar buff this would be an occasional smoke. If your just starting or want some cigar to give away try a more premium brand first and get your pallette adjusted to quality then this cigar will find its place in the occasional smoke section of your humidor. This thing is forcing me to write more because this is the second JR cigar I've reviewed today. And so both have some similarities that the computer system seems to think I'm not deciphering enough difference between them and I should be creative rather that factually honest about the cigar so I am rambling a bit trying to get the computer to release my review. Hope it helps. 3 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso This is one of my favorite everyday smokes. It's what we expect from a JR Alternative very consistent from one bundle to the next. Nice construction. I have never lost a wrapper on even one of these smokes and the draw is always perfect. Boy--do I hate a hard draw 👿. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso draw is very good construction is a little loose flavor very good consistency good better than some of the more pricey cigars 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso I'm always amazed at how well made JR alternatives are. These Bolivars come pretty close to the original for about half the price! 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso They are my preferred cigar for many years. Been smoking them for a long time and never disappointed. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso They have a tendency to lose their wrap and start to peel. However its not like you are paying $15 a stick. Very good cigar for the money. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Good Alternative to a real Cuban. Great price and excellent service from JR's. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Consistently good. My staple in my humidor. Always pleases good smooth mild earthy taste. Definitely a favorite. 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso One thing I can say about this cigar is that it shows consistent construction - consistently poor. I don't think I've one in the bundle that didn't split and/or unravel. 2 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso These cigars feel look taste and smell good. My box was consistent and all drew well. Very happy especially with the price. You can't go wrong with these. I smoked them concurrently with H Upmann 1844 Reserves and they compared very well quality-wise although not the same. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Is very good I will pack the humidor 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Great smoke full bodied great draw excellent flavor 5 5 1

Bolivar Belicoso For the money it is about a 3.75 on star scale 3 5 1

Bolivar Belicoso Well to be honest I have only smoked one of the original versions but from what I can remember it was pretty much the same 3 5 1

Bolivar Belicoso Fine cigar for the price. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Delicious! Tastes like the real thing! Very smooth and full of flavor. Definitely recommend these over the more costly Bolivars. 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso The JR Cuban alternative cigars have the usual consistency issues that most of the JR knockoff brands have. 2 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Good all around smoke that I feel is very underrated and is just as smooth and tasty as some monte cristo cigars 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Well worth a try in my book. While not exactly what I would call a Cuban for the price the next best thing. 3 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Like most JR alternatives a pretty good value. Realistically these are not going to be mistaken for the real thing but for the money they are very good. 3 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Creamy smooth with some nice spice good construction perfect draw they burn a bit fast not all that packed with tobacco these are a flavorful quick smoke worth the money 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso these cigars have a nice bold spicy taste the construction is very good they are quick burning cigars kind of loosely pack but very flavor full worth every penny 3 5 1

Bolivar Belicoso Great daily smoke 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso I, have found putting these in the humidor for about 2 weeks before smoking helps improve the 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso This is a good medium body cigar. No complex tastes, just a nice satisfying med cigar. Like all cigars best enjoyed while smoked slowly and with time to enjoy. Also this cigar can be reli with little bitterness. So for the price, an excellent value. 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Like the tapered end 4 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Very good cigar and customer service. 5 5 1

Bolivar Belicoso quality of construction has not been perfect in the past, but recently It is pretty poor. 2 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso I love these cigars. 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso I have had the good fortune to.have smoked the original Cuban Bolivar Belicoso...to be totally honest with you I can NOT tell any difference between these... JR's alternative has an amazing flavor..great draw..wonderful texture and finish..and the strength of the Cuban is there..IT IS A FAN-DAMN-TASTIC smoke ! 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso These have been my daily cigar for several years. Consistency of construction is not their strong point, but these ARE handmade cigars and they are made by many different individuals. Mostly a good, smooth draw, always good flavor and mostly well constructed. 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Did not receive my V cutter in last shipment. Please replace! 3 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Draw too hard 5 5 1
Bolivar Belicoso Usually 6 or 7 cigars are plugged or partially plugged. I can sometimes cut the cigar in half and make it salvageable but seems to be a lot of work so I usually just dump it and get another. I’ve been smoking these for years and really enjoy them but the constant plugging is getting old. JR Cigars needs a better quality assurance program. 2 5 1

Bolivar Belicoso The shape is great. I have a tendency to chew the end up. The shape after cutting off the sharp point pretty well dictates that you have to treat it gently. 5 5 1
