Excalibur I This is not like the real thing. The flavor is OK but I found it a bit mild. 3 5 1
Excalibur I Excellent replacement for the Hoyo De Monterrey Excalibur #1 Maduro wrapped cigar. 4 5 1
Excalibur I About half way thru my first pack of 20 and still very pleased with this Excalibur Alternative offering. I relax expectations and a (rare) occasional inconsistent burn or draw is acceptable. The Excalibur has been really good--I recommend! 5 5 1
Excalibur I I have been purchasing these cigars for years and have been please overall. BUT the cost has been steadily and steeply on the rise.Very Bad form Altadis/Imperial Brands 4 5 1
Excalibur I This was my 1st alt purchase and have to say I'am impressed. The 1st & 2nd cigars worried me because they unraveled and burned horribly. But the third through the 20th were flawless! Great taste medium body smoke with an excellent burn to the nub. My new cheap stick for sure! 4 5 1
Excalibur I But I absolutely love this cigar. I'm new to JR alternatives this is the 4th blend I have tried. I've been a big fan of all. I'm working my way through to find my daily cheap stick. So far this and the CAO Maduro alt are my top two. You won't be let down on flavor. Out of the 80 cigars from the 4 different alt blends I've tried only 3 sticks were too tight. At the price I can't complain about 3 duds. I will say it is oven that they won't burn even but I care about flavor who cares if it looks pretty. I smoke up to 3 stogies a day can't smoke $15 sticks all the time. You won't regret any blend you try. 4 5 1
Excalibur I Very good cigar for the money. Burns much more evenly and stays lit better than others that I've purchased. 4 5 1
Excalibur I Love em 4 5 1
Excalibur I I have purchased this product several times this last batch was poor in quality. I called customer service for a refund and was told they would send a shipping label rather than a refund. I was on hold for 10 minutes and then did not get satisfaction. I still have not received a refund or the return label. For some reason the construction was poor this time. 1 5 1
Excalibur I These are wonderful when they come from Nicaragua. However when they come from Honduras they are quite terrible. It says Nicaragua is the country of origin on the website but you never know what you're going to get. 2 5 1
Excalibur I I'm not positive but I believe this is what you would call toothy. Anyways good strong smoke for a great price. Showed up a little dry but nothing a few months in my humi won't fix. 4 5 1
Excalibur I As good as the real deal and less expensive! Consistent draw and hardy flavor without any bitterness. I golf and smoke and these hold up well during the round. 4 5 1
Excalibur I Not burning evenly. 3 5 1
Excalibur I Excellent cigar for the dollar compares to alot of higher priced cigars. 4 5 1
Excalibur I Full bodied easy draw great price. What else can one say? Purchased a second bundle. More to follow. 5 5 1
Excalibur I Great Buy . Nice long enjoyable smoke . 4 5 1
Excalibur I Great addition to your humidor for day to day smoke. Generally the JR Alternatives are an excellent value for the price. You have to step up several price points to beat them. 4 5 1
Excalibur I Really a fantastic value for a tasty and well made cigar. Most cigars at several times the price are no better 4 5 1
Excalibur I I have been enjoying these for over 2 years! I’ve got several of my friends hooked on these! 5 5 1
Excalibur I Always a good choice. 5 5 1
Excalibur I Fantastic smoke at a great price. I buy them all the time. 5 5 1
Excalibur I This is a phenomenal cigar. It’s perfectly rolled in a dark wrapper, which gives it a great draw & taste, and also has a good aroma. I’ll continue to buy these due to i’ve Yet to have an issue with them. Thanks JR for offering these! 5 5 1
Excalibur I good cigar 5 5 1
Excalibur I Like the size of the ones I smoke. Good draw and taste, prefer the maduros. 5 5 1
Excalibur I Great Cigar For The Price! 4 5 1
Excalibur I buyng all the time 4 5 1
Excalibur I I fell in love with the Hoyo but not the price as a daily smoke. I love the maduro which is a very rich medium flavor but does not leave your tounge feeling like you dipped it in a pepper shaker. These sticks offer a very close alternative for a fraction of the price and I find the draw more consistent than the real thing (I have had too many bad experiences with the Hoyos.) Withe the alternatives, once in a while I get a really tight draw and one time, got a bundle that was terrible but I buy 1 to 2 bundles a month so that is pretty good in my book. 5 5 1
Excalibur I Great cigar and great price. I order from my house and JR’s delivers! Couldn’t be happier! 5 5 1
Excalibur I This a good cigar at a good price. I prefer the maduro which has a robust taste. 4 5 1
Excalibur I I have enjoyed these a lot. 5 5 1
Excalibur I Always a great smoke. The Excalibur #1 is an all-time favorite, and the JR Alternative is a very good copy for less than ⅓ of the price. 5 5 1
Excalibur I Dollar for dollar one helluva smoke Good draw good burn The Jr Alternative cigars are a great buy 5 5 1
Excalibur I Nice cigar for the price can be strong at times but over all a nice smoke. 4 5 1
Excalibur I Hard to beat at any price 4 5 1
Excalibur I I've been smoking these four years and absolutely love them 4 5 1
Excalibur I good every day smoke 4 5 1
Excalibur I A great smoke on the golf course. Can't beat the price! 4 5 1
Excalibur I so so 1 5 5 1
Excalibur I Horrible always stale save your money 1 5 1
Excalibur I Overall this is a good smoke. Some burned unevenly but you get what you pay for. The construction was better than average. I would say however that this does NOT remind me of an Excalibur. It was extremely heavy and on the bitter side which surprised me because Excalibur is not that way and because other reviews say it is a mild smoke. So while I like the stick the bundle I received is heavy enough to give a long-time cigar smoker who likes heavy cigars a little bit of a buzz. That hasn't happened in a very long time. 3 5 1
Excalibur I These cigars are tasty and smooth. I'm no connoisseur but they are well constructed seem to have overtones of sweet and burn smoothly and consistently. I did give them some time in the humi (about 2 weeks) which seemed to help. 4 5 1
Excalibur I I agree with other reviews...very bitter. Love other JR Alts but won't buy this one again. 2 5 1
Excalibur I This order was very inconsistent. Too many stove pipes. Too many re lights. So far not that great 3 5 1
Excalibur I But I absolutely love this cigar. I'm new to JR alternatives this is the 4th blend I have tried. I've been a big fan of all. I'm working my way through to find my daily cheap stick. So far this and the CAO Maduro alt are my top two. You won't be let down on flavor. Out of the 80 cigars from the 4 different alt blends I've tried only 3 sticks were too tight.

I smoke up to 3 stogies a day can't smoke $15 sticks all the time. You won't regret any blend you try. 4 5 1
Excalibur I Very good cigar for the money. Burns much more evenly and stays lit better than others that I've purchased. 4 5 1
Excalibur I These were very disappointing to me. About half the batch drew poorly. Flavor was strong. 3 5 1
Excalibur I Love genuine EXCALIBUR. These were good. Not great but good. 4 stars. Will buy again 4 5 1
Excalibur I For me this cigar was on the mild side. However it would last me 1.5 to 2 hours to smoke. A great time killer. A few of the cigars did taste kind of green to me. Still a great buy for what it is. 4 5 1
Excalibur I This is by far my favorite golf cigar. Been buying the Alt version for years. Great value 5 5 1
Excalibur I Not burning evenly. 3 5 1
Excalibur I The cigars are great. Every order they're great. Very consistent flavornever bitter or dry. Definitely one of my favorites. 5 5 1
Excalibur I The JR Alternative Excalibur I is a tremendous value as well as a good cigar. Unlike some bargain brands from other vendors it's well constructed and tastes great. It burns smooth and evenly from beginning to end and you can't beat the price! I highly recommend it 4 5 1
Excalibur I No real flavor, disappointed in the taste 3 5 1
Excalibur I An excellent smoke at a great price 5 5 1
Excalibur I This is a good smoke all around. The draw is smooth and even burn. Good price. 4 5 1
Excalibur I Great taste and construction. I have switched to these for my everyday smokes. 4 5 1
Excalibur I Not a bad cigar for the price. Pretty good draw, burns evenly. 4 5 1
Excalibur I not so good this time 5 5 1
Excalibur I I have purchased these cigars for years. Are they as good as Excalibur? No Are they excellent for half the price? Yes 4 5 1
Excalibur I I love my JR Cigar order. It’s always correct and on time. Plus the JR Cigar brand is Great!!! 5 5 1
Excalibur I I love these cigars. They have a nice dark flavor that goes very well with my coffee. Just by way of comparison I also purchased the spring sampler pack. I like these sticks better because they have more flavor than the name brand sticks in that collection. These sticks last a good long time too so I find myself grabbing one of these when I have several different choices to make; that in itself tells me a lot about these cigars. The only reason I don't give this batch a 5 star review (which is rare for me) is because they are making me work just a bit to hard on the draw to completely enjoy the stick. 4 5 1
Excalibur I I have smoked this as well as the real thing and am very satisfied with this cigar. Every now and then one will not taste as well as the rest but for what ya get you will not go wrong. Will definitely continue to buy. 4 5 1
Excalibur I This is a great Smoke especially for the price, I normally smoke the real ones/name brand. The price you pay for these are awesome and the draw, burn us amazing. I will continue to buy these. 5 5 1
Excalibur I Quality Cigars for the money. Smooth mild flavor. Been buying these ever since i became a member. Try them , you'll see. 5 5 1
Excalibur I would be 4 stars but the price keeps raising. 3 5 1
Excalibur I Wasn’t overly impressed. The cigar matched the price. Didn’t live up to my expectations. I’m used to smoking better cigars. 2 5 1
Excalibur I Great 5 5 1
Excalibur I This is one of the sticks I try to always keep in my humi. It has a consistent flavor, which to me is leather and dark. The body is also medium to medium full. It pairs well with a dark coffee or wheat beer but then again those are my go to drinks. I don’t think tired be disappointed having one of these as an everyday stress reliever. 4 5 1
Excalibur I Good cigar but you keep raising the price 4 5 1
Excalibur I Well made. Excellent taste and draw 5 5 1
Excalibur I Just purchased these...I've smoked two and both have been very good. Construction is excellent and the burn even all the way around. It's a pretty long smoke, so plan accordingly! It's not a $15 cigar for just under $3....but it's a really decent cigar. I'll be buying again. 5 5 1
Excalibur I My husband loves them 5 5 1
Excalibur I This has been my smoke for several years but recently it's become unavailable. I had to move to another one and now it's also gone. Now I find all my cigars are either sold out or back ordered. 1 5 1
Excalibur I Rich flavor without bite. Burns evenly and the length allows for a nice, cool smoke. Firmly wrapped, but not hard or dry. 5 5 1
Excalibur I Great 5 5 1
Excalibur I About as close to a Maduro #1 as you can get. Nice draw and good flavor makes it one of my favorites. 4 5 1
Excalibur I I have a good selection of cigars in my coolador and humidor and some are very good and respected brands. But I find myself reaching for the JR alt. Excalibur I very frequently. I like the quality and flavor. 5 5 1
Excalibur I Always one of my favs. Consistent and great quality for the price 5 5 1
Excalibur I Love these while playing a round of golf. Good stout flavor, draw consistency fair. Can last the full 18 holes. 4 5 1
Excalibur I the cost is reasonable, well constructed. Flavor is very good. 5 5 1
Excalibur I I have purchased these cigars for years and I’m noticing that while they are still very tasty, the burn quality hasn’t been as good as of late. I’m getting a fair amount of canoeing on some of the cigars and the number of cigars that burn and draw perfectly are getting more scarce. Maybe that’s what is to be expected from a three dollar cigar in but perhaps better attention can be placed on the bill quality. 4 5 1
Excalibur I Very good 5 5 1
Excalibur I its a basic smoke , not great but not bad either IO wish had a little more flavor 3 5 1
Excalibur I Good cigar for the price 4 5 1
Excalibur I Good price uneven burn 4 5 1

Excalibur I Solid value 5 5 1
Excalibur I Extremely smooth draw. Very enjoyable. 5 5 1
Excalibur I Well built , good burn , not bad at all for an inexpensive cigar ! 4 5 1
Excalibur I These are my "everyday" sticks. The blending is very close to the real thing at less than half the cost. Every once in a while I get one that burns fast, or tastes different....heck, could be my palate on those occasions. I recommend these to all my buds who smoke cigars. Its a way to enjoy a good smoke on a daily basis without the wife getting cranky because your "vice" budget has gotten out of whack! 4 5 1
Excalibur I An enjoyable smoke for a fair price 4 5 1
Excalibur I Great cigar fotr the price. 5 5 1
Excalibur I Long, smooth smoke as good as the original it’s imitating. Luscious maduro flavors 4 5 1
Excalibur I Sometimes these cigars start begining half way up the cigar...meaning I can't enjoy the whole cigar. 4 5 1
Excalibur I Excellent cigar for the price. Like the Maduro wrapper and the fillers are great quality. 5 5 1
Excalibur I OK cigar. Nothing to write about except the absolute gouging on price. This cigar has over doubled in price in the last 5 years. JR used to be a reputable company with a quality cigar at fair prices. That my friends is gone. 3 5 1
