Cuban Fidel Castro birthday cigar world record

 

Fidel Castro has a rather dubious legacy, but we cigar smokers can’t help but be compelled by the legacy of the cigars in his country, and the craft, science, and art that cigar makers in Cuba have.

An interesting tidbit of information:

Castro himself hasn’t smoked since the 1980s. “I haven’t lit up a cigar for several months now,” he said in an interview in late 1985. “I reached the conclusion long ago that the one last sacrifice I must make for (Cuban) public health is to stop smoking. I haven’t really missed it that much.”
