Partnering up with Rocky Patel, The Cigar smoking World Championship (CSWC) will be taking place in Split, Croatia this year in September.
“The Cigar Smoking World Championship is certainly an international competition in the slow smoking of cigars but at the same time it is much more than just a competition. It is the perfect tool to wake up so many emotion in every cigar enthusiast through the medium of friendly competition.” said Marko Billic, the organizer and creator of the global event.
This collaboration will result in a new cigar being made exclusively for this competition and to also be sold post event. The Cigar Smoking World Championship cigar will come in 3 vitolas; Mareva (corona) 5 ⅛ x 42, robusto 5 x 50, and a toro 6 x 52. The robusto and toro sizes will come in twenty count boxes while the Mareva (the official size for the competition) comes in a ten count box.
“I wanted to blend and produce a special competition cigar that can be enjoyed by everyone across the world for years to come.” said Rocky Patel
Qualifying events will take place in over thirty countries where the winner from each country will appear at the grand finale in Croatia. Countries and cultures will come together at this global event to witness who will become the cigar smoking world champion.
