Jose started rolling cigars when he was only 14 years old and admits he never thought he’d end up making cigars that are nearly the size of a football field. He first made cigar history in 2001 when he made a 36.22 feet (11.04 meters) long cigar, followed by a 48.75 feet (14.86 meters) one  in 2003, then 66.96 feet (20.41 meters) one in 2005 and a 149 feet (45.38 meters) cigar in 2008. But, Jose dosen’t want to stop. He already has plans for his next project, a cigar measuring exactly 100 meters (328 feet), and as says that as long as he is alive, the longest cigar in the world will always be found in Cuba.
