The Rocky Patel World Championship 2021 cigar is a cigar with a special purpose, and it’s also an excellent 90-point smoke on top of that.
RP blended this one up for official use at the Cigar Smoking World Championship in 2021. Multi-time winner Russian Oleg Pedan has thus far become the competition’s leading man, but each year many try to out smoke him if they can. The CSWC was founded by Marko Bilic, the owner of Cigar Club Mareva, now located in Split, Croatia (and expanding).
The goal of the competition is to get your Rocky Patel World Championship cigar lit and then smoke it as slowly as you can without it going out. Whoever is the slowest is the winner, and this year’s prizes include a real treasure trove of treats. Grand final prizes for the overall winner include humidors and accessories, a 24k gold champion’s lighter, a mega-yacht experience, a golden cigar knife, a world champion ring, and more. It’s quite the haul if you can take the tiniest puffs of them all.
Qualification events happen all over the world throughout the year, and the winners participate in La Grand Final in Split. You can learn more at cswcworld.com. If you want, you can take your stab at joining the competition annually. At the very least, you’re guaranteed to get some good cigars in your hands.
For those who want to enjoy the delicious championship blend that Rocky Patel created for the occasion, you can order it here and see how long you can make it last right in your own backyard. It’s a tasty and rich blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan long-filler tobacco, as well as a Nicaraguan binder and a Mexican wrapper. It’s quite zesty with notes of cayenne pepper, earth, and wood, which is perfect for a smoke you don’t want to take big draws on.
The competition record for drawing out a single cigar to the band is usually sitting somewhere close to four hours! If you want to take a run at the big prize, this is your chance. And if not, this World Championship cigar from Rocky Patel is a spectacular smoke in its own right.
