Longest Cigar in the World!

On May 3rd, four times Guinness World Records holder and renowned Cigar roller Senor Jose Castelar Cairo (a.k.a. Cueto) entered again the GWR with his latest accomplishment of an 81.80 meters (262 ft) long Cuban Cigar!!

The cigar took 7 days to complete and was done in the Morro-Cabana Historic Park in Havana, Cuba. With over 50 years of experiences under his belt as a cigar roller, Cueto says the world record for the longest cigar should always belong to Cuba, the home to habanos, the finest premium cigars on the face of the earth.

Cueto holds the GWR for a first cigar that measured 36 feet long in 2001. Later in 2003 he came up with a 50-foot-long cigar, a 65-footer in 2005, and 147-footer in 2008.

I'll leave you with some of the video footage of the rolling and measuring... enjoy!
