Over the weekend in Split, Croatia, Oleg Pedan was crowned the 2019 Cigar Smoking World Champion with a slow smoking time of 3 hours, 26 minutes, and 49 seconds. This is Oleg's second crown, as he also won in 2015.
As well as a number of cigar related events, the new cigar for the 11th upcoming season was revealed by CSWC Founder Marko Bilic.
Rocky Patel Cigars will replace the Macanudo Inspirado Mareva supplied by Scandinavian Tobacco Group as the Principal Cigar Sponsor of CSWC from 2020. Rocky Patel Cigars' European Distributor Kolja Kukuk revealed an image of the cigars in a Facebook post at the event.
After the success of the first Kuala Lumpur Qualifying event in early March this year, Marko Bilic will be back in Kuala Lumpur in 2020. This time he may even bring a few cigar friends along!
The BIG question is, who will challenge Yadie Dayana, Kuala Lumpur's 2019 Qualifying Event Champion as the 2020 Winner?
Stay tuned for more news about CSWC 2020. We will have Rocky Patel Cigars, a grand location, plenty of amazing prizes, but most of all a great night celebrating cigars is guaranteed! We can't wait for 2020!
