The Cigar Smoking World Championship returns to Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia’s Trinidad Cigar Company brings the Cigar Smoking World Championship (CSWC) Kuala Lumpur qualification event to Chime, Sheraton Petaling Jaya, on Saturday 15 August. The Malaysian qualifying event will be the first live qualifying event since March. Due to travel restrictions founder Marko Bilic is unable to attend, however Samuel Spurr, Cigar Journal’s Asia-Pacific Editor will host and judge the competition.

“It is fantastic that Kuala Lumpur can host the first live qualifying event since March this year and this shows how the event inspires people to participate. I would love to be there, but will be watching online and saying hello,” said Marko Bilic. “It will be great to get Malaysian’s feedback on the Rocky Patel competition cigar.”
