  Largest Production Cigar 
- world record set by Gran Habano Cigars
  Miami, Fl., USA -- Gran Habano Cigars has just released a new cigar in the Corojo #5 line called the “El Gigante”, measuring 18.9 feet long, 3.3 feet wide and 5.2 feet high and it weighs 1,200 pounds, with an official ring gauge of 1920 - which sets the new world record for the Largest Production Cigar.

   The giant cigar – “El Gigante” – was commissioned by the Gran Habano Cigar Co. of Miami and was produced in its GR Tabacalera Unidas factory in Danli, Honduras.

    According to Gran Habano’s George Rico, “We wanted to make the world’s largest production cigar. It’s a way to showcase our brands of cigars.”

    The World's Largest Production Cigar is a true production cigar and can be special ordered by anyone willing to try it. The blend is the same as a Gran Habano Corojo #5. A team of 50 worked on the project for 20 days.

    The Largest Production Cigar in The World reportedly includes more than 11,000 individual tobacco leaves. It weighs a little more than a ton – 2,200 pounds – with the furniture [support].

    It’s so big that it is perched on a custom-made wooden cart, complete with rollers, and protected by a giant wooden covering similar in style to a cigar tube!

   A special team of personnel has been dedicated to making this special cigar for anyone who places an order. All orders must be placed through Gran Habano directly and the suggested MSRP is set at $200,000.

   While this first cigar will go to a museum for display, Gran Habano has created this vitola for smoking! Gran Habano has developed a device that would go on the cap of the cigar.This device will allow 200 people to smoke the cigar simultaneously.

    The Corojo #5 El Gigante will make its debut appearance June 25th at the Famous Smoke Shop Cigar Expo in Easton, PA.

    It will also journey around the country making appearances at official Gran Habano AZTECA events and at the annual International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers (IPCPR) convention.

   Gran Habano Cigars was founded in 1995 by Guillermo Rico and his son George Rico. Using only the best raw materials on earth, Gran Habano begins the growing process with Habano and Corojo seeds which are grown on company-owned farms in Colombia, Panama, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.

   The previous Guiness world record for cigar girth is believed to be 24 inches.     

  The world record for the longest cigar was set by Jose Castelar.
