Cigar to smokers is just as golf clubs to golfers?Those fine, dark, leafy odors seem to permeate your every pore whenever you step into a cigar store. Although cigar is not good to health, so many people like cigar, when you smoke you are cool.(hi guys,i bought cheap golf clubs,Titleist AP2 Irons just cost $329.99,you may try.)
Do you know how long is the longest cigar in the world?
Wallace and Margarita Reyes have been rolling cigars for many, many years. Wallace is actually a Grand Master cigar roller of which only three exist in the world. He's been rolling cigars since he was 12 when he was taught by his father.
In 2001 Wallace and Margarita had actually rolled a cigar that was 101 feet long and so he was already prepared for the stresses and strains of what lay ahead. But first a brief congratulations of his aforementioned past record.
The Guinness World Record for hand-rolling the longest cigar in the world has been held by individuals or teams in only three places: Cuba, Puerto Rico and the United States. the record Wallace and Margarita aimed to break was held by Cuban Jose Castelar Cairo who in May 2008 in Havana had rolled a cigar 148 ft 11 in long.
To roll the world's longest cigar Wallace and Margarita had purchased around 140 lb of Ecuadorean tobacco which cost approximately $4,500. They had pre-rolled the cigar into sections each measuring roughly 10 ft with a 64 ring gauge and this process had taken 104 hours. The plan was on the day to roll all 18 sections together.
At the appointed hour (which for the Reyes was 4 am on Saturday November 21st 2009) they stepped into a tent which was built to act as a giant humidor and started rolling.
And on it went, minute by minute, hour after hour, the rolling of the longest cigar in the world was a total labor of love for these guys. they actually ended up with a cigar measuring 196 feet 3 3/8 inches!!!
Congratulations to Wallace and Margarita Reyes for setting a new Guinness World Record!!! Ybor City is back in the Guinness World Records book!
