After releasing its first limited edition named Phantom Queen during the 2022 PCA Convention & Trade Show, Stolen Throne Cigars decided to debut a blend this year that includes a ligero grown in the Condea region of Nicaragua, a region the company has never used before.

Like last year, Stolen Throne and Rojas Cigars—the latter of whom owns the Rojas Cigar Factory located in Estelí, Nicaragua, where the Yorktown Fleet cigars are being made—are located right next to each other in matching wooden-covered wagons that were hand-made in Nicaragua. The booth seemed to be busy pretty much every time I walked past, which was quite often, since the halfwheel compound is less than 50 feet away.

In addition, Stolen Throne announced it had taken over the distribution of ER Fine Cigars, a brand created by former NFL player Ed Reed produced by Plasencia Cigars.

Yorktown Fleet

This new line’s name was chosen after Stolen Throne recently opened a new headquarters in Yorktown, Va. On October 19, 1781, Gen. Charles Cornwallis of Great Britain surrendered in Yorktown to George Washington and the French Navy. Today, the U.S. Navy operates Naval Weapons Station Yorktown, which provides weapons and ammunition to the Atlantic Fleet.

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
