Sixty-five-year-old Jose Castelar smoked his own 2005 record of a 20.41-meter-long (67-foot-long) 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 10-kilometer (six-mile) 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.
