Cuban Cigar Roller Enters Guinness Book of World Records with 81.80-meter-long Habano


The Cuban cigar roller worked for nearly a week in one of the halls of the Morro-Cabaña recreational compound, thus putting just another feather in his Guinness hat.

Before this new mark, Cueto had walked into the record books with his first 11.04-meter-long Habano back in 2011. Then he added a second of 14.86 meters in 2003, a third of 20.41 meters in 2005 and more recently a 45.38 cigar in 2008, all of them properly certified by the Guinness House.

A cigar roller with 50 years of experience under his belt, Cueto believes the Guinness World Record of the longest habano should always belong to Cuba, the home of the globe’s finest premium cigars.

Mr. Cueto, who works at the La Triada habano store at the Morro-Cabaña Compound, shows his former record-holding cigars in his own workplace.

During the 13th Habano Festival in February, Mr. Cueto was nominated for the Habano Award in the Communication category.
