The CSWC in Spain

The Spanish qualification round of the Cigar Smoking World Championship 2022 was held at the private casino club in the city of Puente Genil about an hour north of Malaga. Half of the participants were out within the first half hour, but there was still some excitement in the end. Accompanied by a live flamenco singer and guitarist, of course, the competition turned into a close race between José Maria Padillo och Pepe Ximenez.  

“Since Pepe received penalty minutes for losing his ash after 20 minutes, the winner of CSWC Spain 2022 was Jose Maria Padillo, with 1 hour 8 minutes and 20 seconds,” organizer Jan Vistisen says.

  3. Carlos Barrett 00:26:10
  4. Enrique Sanchez 00:26:10

Nachdem Simon Lundh 2005 sein Ingenieursdiplom in Vermessungstechnik erwarb, entschied er sich für eine journalistische Laufbahn. Er entdeckte die Welt der Zigarren während er für eine nichtstaatliche Organisation in Estelí, Nicaragua, arbeitete und verdient seinen Lebensunterhalt nun größtenteils mit Artikeln über Zigarren, Metal Music und Tattoos sowie Reiseberichten.
