Recommended Posts

HAVANA (AFP) ? Cuba's Jose Castelar on Tuesday finished rolling one large cigar -- at 81.8 meters (268.4 ft), his fifth Guinness world record.

"Cuba is the country where the best tobacco is grown, and as long as Cueto is around, Cuba will have the world's longest cigar," Castelar told reporters, referring to himself by his nickname.

Castelar, 67, had been working on the superstogie since April 25, toiling away about eight hours a day.

His new goal -- another record he could set by topping 100 meters.

Castelar's new record cigar could be smoked but won't be -- it is used for promotional events.

I've had a Cuban cigar, and they are definitely wonderful....but that much is over kill! Still, though, that's pretty cool, considering I wouldn't know how to even roll a regular one, lol!
