Cuban eyes world record with 268-foot cigar
HAVANA (AP) - May 4, 2011 (WPVI) -- Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. But one Cuban man is hoping that a 268-foot super-stogie he rolled is something more: a world record.J
ose Castelar and his assistants started working on it at the end of April and finished Tuesday.
British diplomats were on hand to measure the cigar. It has yet to be verified by Guinness World Records.
Castelar already holds the Guinness mark for a 148-foot cigar he rolled in 2008.
