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, with 50 years of experience, recalls with satisfaction the knowledge he got on his way through prestigious cigar factories like La Corona, Partagas and Briones Montoto, the producer of the Romeo and Julieta and Cohiba brands, among others. He also remembers those who revealed to him some secrets in this art, and mentions cigar-roller Eddy Garcia, who taught him to make twisted cigars.

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!
