Cigar smoking world championship
From September 1 to 3 Split hotel Park will host the eighth cigar smoking world championship, organized by the local Mareva cigar club. The hedonist three day tobacco fest – last year’s fourth most important event of its kind according to the influential Cigar Journal – will be sponsored by, among others, Swiss watchmaker Cuervo y Sobrinos. The watchmaker, celebrating 135 years this year, will debut their anniversary model at the event. Part of the event will be the launch of the first cigar inspired by the city itself: Spalato by Bespoke cigars, blended in the Dominican Republic by Mareva president, Mr. Marko Bilić.
The tobacco festival will begin with a gourmet dinner in the hotel, prepared by finest Croatian chefs, combining delicious courses with selected domestic wines by wineries Matošević, Iločki podrumi and Boškinac. Throughout the festival guests will be served Havana Rum, Mumm, Chivas and Jacobs Creek by Pernod Ricard.
