The CSWC in Macedonia

There were no surprises when the North Macedonian qualification round of the Cigar Slow Smoking World Championships was held at the Hilton Hotel in Skopje. The current holder of the north Macedonian record, Saso Dukoski, demonstrated why he is one of the favorites, winning the title for the third time. With a smoking time of 1 hour, 57 minutes and 1 second he’s now ranked first on the current top 20 list of the 2022 season.

“The Skopje cigar club La Navidad once again proved they are one of the best in the game,” CSWC president, Marko Bilic, says. “They brought the CSWC qualifier to Skopje’s prestigious Hilton hotel and gathered the country’s top cigar smokers.”
