In the city of Clearwater Florida, Juan Panesso reserves for years a store with various kinds of cigars. Rare, expensive, collectible, individually, classic. His involvement with tobacco is alive and well and has many clients, including eccentric and picky ones. An avid cigar collector to be exact, asked Juan to make him the biggest cigar in the world, without, of course, thrift in money.
Juan agreed and behold… The giant cigar is 19 meters long and 3 meters wide, covered in 16.000 tobacco leaves, enough to build 25,000 normal sized cigars and weighs 725 pounds, while the selling price reaches 185,000 dollars, after a good deal made by prospective buyer, downloading the original amount that was 200,000 dollars.
The cigar is called El Gigante, which means giant and it is placed in a special case which is expected to enable the collector to a few days.
