The Hype
Stolen Throne cigars debuted in 2019 to great fanfare of cigar enthusiasts. The Yorktown Fleet is now their fourth regular production cigar, and was introduced during the 2023 PCA Convention & Trade Show. Like the other Stolen Throne cigars, the Yorktown Fleet is made at the Rojas Cigar Factory in EstelĂ­, Nicaragua.  The name was chosen after Stolen Throne recently opened a new headquarters in Yorktown, Va. According to their website: "The Yorktown Fleet, a cigar built from history and adventure. Carefully hand-rolled to transport you back to a time when smoking was rebellious and a true embodiment of cool."

The Reviewers:
Kerry has preselected and drafted three reviewers, and two (2) spots are open for volunteers. Initially, volunteers should be Veteran status or higher. This review will be due by February 25, so please take into account your schedule and only volunteer if you are prepared to turn it in on time. If you are interested, please indicate so in the forum below and Kerry will make the final selection:
1.  Cfickter
2.  05Venturer
3.  arrow34
4.  headfirst
5.  Adwinistrator

Note: A reviewer who posts their review late will receive neutral feedback. A reviewer who does not post at all will receive negative feedback. There are always exceptions to the rule and a reasonable excuse for tardiness or a no show will be respected and thus not counted against the reviewer. Our sponsoring members and our administrators make the choice of who is to participate in any particular Geek Critique and can be better informed of their choices with this initiative in place.

Thanks again to Kman for providing the cigar. And thank you to the reviewers.

Arrived safe and sound, now for a little nap.  Thank you for the kind hitchhikers as well.  I actually have wanted to try one of those for a while now and they're no longer available.
