Turin Time Chase challangers in their first experience with CSWC competition

Yesterday evening at the Green Room of the Del Cambio restaurant in Turin, something truly extraordinary happened. It was an event that was one-of-a-kind and had no equal in all past CSWC editions. What was it, you ask? It was a A FIRST AND HISTORICAL CSWC COMPETITION- competition for women only! Aurelio Tufano our CSWC Judge in charge was initiator and on that way he wrote history for CSWC

This is an incredible initiative, and we are thrilled to see more and more women participating. Klaudia Ide, the World Record holder, is an example of how they may truly build and impact CSWC history. With this initiative, the Italian ladies have simply added additional wind to the sails, motivating all ladies to participate in this fantastic CSWC event.- Ivana Vrdoljak, Club Mareva Vice President

Ladies in CSWC slow smoking action

The queen of the competition, Maria Taravella, absolutely dominated by pushing her cigar for an impressive 1 hour and 14 minutes and 20 seconds. But let's not forget about the amazing second place finisher, Barbara Cais, who managed to keep her cigar going for 1 hour and 08 minutes and 40 seconds. And a huge congratulations to Daniela Lopreiato for securing the third place spot with such a short distance from 2nd place with  time of 1 hour and 08 minutes and 12 seconds.


CSWC competition was fun but also focus for newcomers - perfect ash with stady hand


Woman competitors proved that they have great patience - no any penalty minutes was issued


It was great to see Woman Only in CSWC action

This event was truly a groundbreaking initiative from women cigar aficionados from Italy, and it's clear that we can expect to see more of these amazing women-only CSWC competitions in the future. It's so exciting to see women making their mark in the cigar world and pushing the boundaries of what's possible - which was best demonstrate by breaking World Record by Klaudia Ide from Poland. We can't wait to see what's next!
