A Cuban cigar roller, Castelar Cairo, 67, set the new world record for making longest cigar.
Also known as “Cuetro,” he took eight hours to roll the 81.8-meter-long cigar on April 25.
The hand-made cigar beat Cairo’s previous cigar making record.
Cairo began rolling record-breaking stogies since 2001 with the help of a team.
He said “As long as I am alive, the record for the longest cigar has to be in Cuba, the country with the best cigars in the world.”
He added that he learned to roll cigars when he was just 5-years-old.
