Jose Castelar is looking to break his own world record for the longest hand rolled cigar in the world with his latest massive attempt.
The legendary cigar roller who unsurprisingly hails from Cuba set out on the 1st August to beat his 2011 record where he hand rolled a cigar that measure a whopping 264 feet and is hoping that his new cigar will be finished by August 12th.
At 67 years old Jose Castelar or ‘Cueto’ is considered to be the Lionel Messi of cigar rolling and has held the record since 2001 after beating rivals from America, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. The only time the record has been broken since 2001 is well… by himself!
These massive smokes from ‘Cueto’ are rolled to meet the standards of figurative cigars with tobacco from San Luis and San Juan y Martinez in the Pinar del Rio province in western which is considered by many to be home to some of the finest tobacco in the world.
Watch ‘Cueto’ in action in the video below.
