These are the times CSWC 2022 Italy
Aniello Buonincontro 1:42:02
Federico Serilli 1:23:27
Florindo Lauruello 1:20:31

Aniello with great concentration never took his eyes off his cigar, following Federico very attentive to any drafts he protected his cigar throughout the smoke, Florindo had a different approach more relaxed (apparently), almost to seem for him a serene daily smoke.

Congratulations to all participants, champions, and sponsors such as Sonia Campoli of Cuervo y Sobrinos, Sarah Giordano of S.T. Dupont, and then Les Fines Lames, Boveda, Cigar Journal, Ginarte, CaffèAtene and of course Rocky Patel.
