Fine Spirits & Cigar Weekend 2016 took place in Tallinn on 10-12 June, 2016 Organisers thank all the cooperation partners and guests for the successful weekend!
The Tallinn Fine Spirits & Cigar Weekend has developed into one of the Nordic region’s major events for cigar fans, a time when entrepreneurial people can come together to spend a celebratory and atmospheric weekend with good company, excellent cigars and fine spirits. Excitement was certainly added by the slow cigar smoking competition, which also serves as a qualifying tournament for the Cigar Smoking World Championship, and which was also held here at the glass hall of Tallinn Song Festival Grounds. This year, the venue of the Tallinn Fine Spirits and Cigar Weekend was moved a little bit closer to the sea. To be more open and forward-looking is one of the goals and, hopefully, this great event will continue to grow in the next years to become even greater.
Mr. Kirill Grigorjev from the Riga Cigar Club was honoured for promoting the cigar culture in the region.
The honorary jury led by the chief judge Mrs Ivana Vrdoljak, the Vice-President of Club Mareva (Croatia), announced the following winners:
I place ULYANA GLAZUNOVA, Russia II place ANNA SHAPIRO, Russia III place TAINA HAAPAMÄKI, Finland
I place OLEG PEDAN, Russia II place ALEXANDER SHAGAI, Russia III place SERGEI GALEVSKI, Russia
The competition prizes were presented at the Vana Tallinn and Macanudo gala dinner, which was attended by guests from 12 different countries, including Nicaragua, Malta, Cuba and Turkey. In addition, two special awards were given out in the competition: the most stylish smoking pose award went to SILVER RANDALU from Estonia, and the most elegant gentleman prize was awarded to PEKKA PALANDER from Finland.
