They're decent cigars, but I had a few that were not very good. As to being close alternatives, most are not. I tried maybe fifteen different ones in the line some years ago, and I can say you'd never mistake the copy for the original in any instance.
My girl Gertie with me at the drive-in 2 months before she died. Missing her!

I think overall it is a pretty tasty cigar at a very reasonable price. I didn't like to give them away, though because in a bundle it seemed as if there was always one or two clinkers. I would hate to give one of those to someone and have them think I was smoking rags. Ha!
