Gran Habano Creates World’s Largest Production Cigar

Submitted by Oliver on June 25, 2010 – 5:00 am2 Comments

Miami, Fl., June 21, 2010 –  Gran Habano Cigars has just released a new cigar in the Corojo #5 line called the “El Gigante”. The Corojo #5 El Gigante will go down in history as the largest production cigar that has ever been created by any company. Measuring at just less than 19 ft in length it will have an official ring gauge of 1920.

Using long fillers and staying true to the Corojo #5 blend the El Gigante is intended to be smoked. A device has been designed and implemented that will attach to the end of the cap allowing for up to 200 people to smoke the El Gigante at one time. A full sized band will finish off the cigar making the appearance identical to the other sizes in the line. Everything will be shipped in self-contained wooden tube mimicking the design of the Corojo #5 boxes.

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.  Anyone who places an order will be flown to the factory to oversee and take part in the El Gigante experience.

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.
