Cuban cigar roller going for a new Guinness world record

Cuban cigar-roller Jose Castelar Cairo (Cueto), already famous for his four Guinness World Record length cigars (11,04 m, 14,80 m, 20,41 m, and 45,38 m Habanos), will be shooting for a new world record this Monday, April 25th. In the Morro- Cabaña Park in Havana, Cueto will set out to roll a 70 meter-long cigar.

Cueto has over 50 years of experience rolling cigars for well known brand names like Cohiba, La Corona, Briones Montoto, and others. His previous Guinness World Record cigars are on display at the fortress of San Carlos de la Cabaña in La Triada. Cueto is planning to exhibit his cigars at the 31st International Tourism Fair (FITCuba 2011) this May 2nd-7th.

This past year Cueto was nominated to receive the prestigious Premio Habano. Cigar enthusiasts everywhere will surely wish him luck in pursuing his next Guinness World Record!

  1. Oh, good! I was hoping it might be something like that… seen too many Guinness-Record photos of these things; I think they bring cigars into disrepute.

  2. In fact it’s not a waste. I read that he is rolling it in a way that it can be cut (after he’s finished of course) in many smaller cigars that can be smoked 🙂

  3. What a waste of space, time and tobacco.

  4. Yeah, but can you smoke one that long?!?!?!!
