Over the past few months, I've really come to appreciate a new vitola of cigar, the petit corona. So, when Luxury Cigar Club sent me the Stolen Throne Call to Arms Sumatra, a cigar that, at a 6 x 46 ring gauge is a classic petit corona, I was quite excited.
Before even punching the end, the Call to Arms smelled delicious. The Sumatra wrapper was wonderfully aromatic. The cold draw was almost perfect with a punch and offered up flavors of wood, perhaps oak or pine.
After torching the end, the Stolen Throne Call to Arms Sumatra offered up flavors of leather and spice that are reminiscent of the Stolen Throne Crook of the Crown. On the retrohale, I can taste little whiffs of powdered sugar.
Brand: Stolen Throne
Line: Call to Arms
Size: 6 x 46
Price: $10.50 – Luxury Cigar Club
Wrapper: Unknown Sumatra
Smoke Time: 73 minutes
Through the middle of the cigar, the heat from the Sumatra was intense, but not peppery. The Call to Arms' construction was essentially perfect with a great draw and a burn that was almost razor-sharp.
The Call to Arms has a kick! Wow, after enjoying the cigar for about 75 minutes, the Stolen Throne Call to Arms Sumatra Corona started to give me the hiccups. Perhaps it was the nicotine, perhaps it was the spiciness, but whatever it was tickled something in my throat.
Regarding the Call to Arms' flavors, I didn't love them. They were very bold and spicy, a little too much for me. However, the draw was perfect, the burn was perfect, and the overall construction of the cigar was incredible.
While the Call to Arms was a little too spicy for me, if you're into bolder, spicier sticks, you'll definitely want to give this one a try (if you can find one). Because this cigar delivers in just about every area that counts, the Stolen Throne Call to Arms Sumatra Corona earns a CigarScore 5.
