Cigar Slow Smoking World Championship | Oslo

On Saturday May 6, the first qualification round of the Cigar Slow Smoking World Championship took place in Oslo, Norway. The winner Rolf Broch chose to end his cigar at 1 hour and 32 minutes as the competition was already over. The battle between second and third place was a lot closer, though. Knut Are Hole kept his cigar alive just about a minute longer than Tormod Skaraas.

“Overall it was a good competition with fair play and a down-to-earth attitude and atmosphere”, André Veiby at Augusto Cigars says. “And there were times when the smoke lay quite thick. Since our lounge is a rather small cellar, ventilation had to be set to a minimum, making the judge cough and tear up a bit.”
