Hardly any other ritual is as significant for slowing down time as smoking a cigar. A cigar forgives no hectic and rush. And we all know the result – it not only becomes unpleasant from a sensory perspective; too much haste during smoking fundamentally reduces the pleasure. To create opportunities for retreating, for celebrating the slowness of being is a true luxury in our time that’s characterized by high speed. To further boost this coolness, the Cigar Smoking World Championship was launched in 2010. The slow smoking competition is one of the cigar industry’s most exciting events across the globe. In over 30 countries, passionados collect to meet the challenge – smoke slow and enjoy!
