A Cuban cigar roller broke his fourth world record on Wednesday, creating a 43.38m stogie that doubled his previous best.

Sixty five year old Jose Castelar smoked his own 2005 record of a 20.41m cigar, and vowed to continue to roll record-breaking creations.

“I’m going to continue until I do one that is the length of the Malecon,” he said, referring to Havana’s famous 10km seafront promenade.

Castelar - who has rolled for a Saudi prince, among others - received a Guinness World Record for his troubles.

Decked out in a traditional white guayabera, Castelar explained he learned to make cigars when he was 14 years old.

But the athletic looking sexagenarian said he limits himself to smoking one cigar a day.

If he is smoking this 140’ cigar, I would hope it’s only one Cuban cigar per day grin
