Cigar Snob Magazine’s Lechón Challenge

Cigar Snob Magazine's Lechón ChallengeSaturday, November 17, 7pm-10pm – InterContinental Miami, 100 Chopin Plz, Miami

Cigar Snob Magazine’s Lechón Challenge is a pig roasting competition where 5 popular cigar companies will compete to see who roasts the best Cuban-style whole hog using a Caja China. Each team will be roasting hogs on the terrace of the InterContinental Miami overlooking Biscayne Bay and YOU will decide whether A. Fuente, Oliva Cigars, Villiger Cigars, Espinosa Cigars, or AJ Fernandez roasts the best “lechón”! Each team is playing for a charity so in addition to bragging rights, you will decide which company’s chosen charity will get the proceeds. There will be top-shelf wine, spirits, and cocktails along with cigars from the competitors and many others. Help us decide who is the cigar industry’s 2018 Lechón Champion!

All ticket levels will participate in the lechón tastings as well as passed hors d’oeuvres and top-shelf beer, wine, and spirit samples. General Admission guests will receive a Xikar travel humidor containing 20 premium cigars as well as a Xikar Xi cutter and a Xikar torch lighter. VIP guests get all of the above plus access to the Villiger/Gentleman Jack VIP Lounge where they will receive 2 special VIP cigars, additional Lechón Challenge swag and open-bar till close. And because you’re a VIP, we’ll have waitresses bring you your lechón tastings! Companion (non-smoker) tickets are also available.
