Italy Wins the World Challenge II


23/02/2019

The second edition of the Habanos World Challenge came to a close Friday with a final battle between “Criollitas de La Habana”, made up of Mayli Mostaza and Daylin López de Cuba, and “La Excepción”, consisting of Italian participants Aurelio Tufano y Giulio Amaturo.

The Italian couple turned out the undisputed winner in a duel of knowledge marked by a sold-out crowd. The winning couple of this second edition of the Habanos World Challenge tabbed a grand total of 71 points, while the runner-up team from Cuba ended with a score of 65.25.

The session came to an end with a mixture of Johnnie Walker blended whiskey and the Montecristo Petit Edmundo (ring gauge 52 x 110 mm long), a golden closing to the 21st edition of the Habano Festival, the event that celebrates the world’s best tobacco and premium cigars.
