CSWC Armenia

As been common the last few years there are several new countries on the Cigar Smoking World Championship circuit and Armenia was the first one out. First time judge Emil Frangyan was in charge of the tournament and founder Marko Bilic was pleased with the debut.

“We’re overjoyed by the great expertise demonstrated by Armenian smokers,” he says. “The winning time was excellent and we can’t wait to see the Armenian champion in person at the grand finale.”

David Ter Gulanyan was the man of the hour when he managed to become the first ever Armenian champion. He finished at 1 hour 52 minutes and 24 seconds, way ahead of Bagrat Dilanyan and Edvard Baghdasaryan in second and third place.
