Last month, Cuban native Jose Castelar set out to break his own record for the world's largest cigar.

Castelar began the project at the end of April and, with the help of assistants, finished the super-cigar on Tuesday.

Naturally, he called in British diplomats to measure the cigar for the Guinness World Records. The official measurement: 268 feet long - not bad, especially considering that his previous record-breaking cigar measured in at 148 feet.

Stick that in your cigar and smoke it.
