A new cigar for a new decade of champions, Rocky Patel is now officially the new supplier for the Cigar Smoking World Championships, with their Mareva cigar now available to buy online.


What is the Cigar Smoking World Championship?

As the name suggests, the Cigar Smoking World Championship seeks to find the world’s best at the art of cigar smoking. Unlike many competitions though, the fastest certainly does not win when it comes to the Cigar Smoking World Championship.

Instead, the focus is on who can draw out the cigar smoking experience for the longest, without needing to relight their stogie. Competitors aim to puff on their cigar for the most amount of time, taking the process slowly. Slow and steady really does win the race when it comes to the Cigar Smoking World Championship.

While most of this year’s qualifying events have already been cancelled during the ongoing COVID-19 situation, many cigar lovers have been taking their time at home to practice smoking with the official tournament cigar – the Rocky Patel Cigar Smoking World Championship Mareva Cigar.


Rocky Patel Releases New Cigars for Championship

To make the competition fair, every participant uses the exact same type of cigar when competing. This year, the supplier has changed to Rocky Patel, who have produced a line of cigars under the title of ‘Cigar Smoking World Championship’.


Mareva is Used for the Championship

The official size for the competition is the Mareva. Last year’s champion, Olef Pedan from Russia, managed to keep his Mareva cigar burning for 3 hours and 26 minutes! Prior to Rocky Patel, the brand Macanudo was responsible for providing the Championship with cigars.

While Macanudo, the previous supplier, used cigars that already existed in their brand’s line, Rocky Patel has created a new line of cigars to be used for the occasion. While the line includes three cigars, the only one to actually be used at the events is the Mareva.

The Rocky Patel Championship cigars include:

  • Mareva (5 1/8 inches by 42 ring gauge)
  • Robusto (5 inches by 50 ring gauge)
  • Toro (6 inches by 52 ring gauge)

The cigars in this line will be made using a blend of tobaccos – a Mexican San Andres wrapper, containing a Nicaraguan binder and filled with tobacco from Honduras and Nicaragua.


If you want to practice for future Cigar Smoking World Championship events, or just want to puff on this cigar for fun, then you can get your hands on the Rocky Patel Cigar Smoking World Championship Mareva Cigar at Havana House!
