I posted something last week about Cuban cigar roller Jose Castelar Cairo, better known as Cueto, and his attempt to roll the world’s longest cigar for the fifth time in a row. We’re happy to announce that according to an article on CubaHeadlines.com, he’s done it—Cueto’s newest creation is a jaw-dropping 81.8 meters long.
67-year-old Cueto applied the same technique on the 81.8-meter-long cigar that he uses for regular ones so that if it were cut into pieces, it would be entirely smokeable. The cigar goes through 12 vaults of the Morro-Cabaña fortresses and is made from leaves from the Pinar del Rio province. Cueto rolled the mammoth cigar because according to him, the “Guinness of the largest habano in the planet should always belong to Cuba.”
Now, imagine if you could get one of these for a party the same way you could get a six-foot sub. Think of it—a stogie this large could provide hours of smoke for hundreds of drunken cigar fiends. I’d fight my way to the front of the line to be the first to get a foot of this enormous stogie, though at 81.8 meters, I probably wouldn’t have to. Anyway, congratulations to Cueto, and I hope that the thing eventually gets smoked!
