During IPCPR, Jerry and I discovered that, with our press passes, we could walk past security and enter the trade show floor before the official opening. We took full advantage of this, scoping out the floor and making a plan of attack for the day. One of the first things to grab our attention was a nineteen-foot long cigar in the Gran Habano booth.
After taking various photos and video, we made plans to swing by later in the show and talk to George Rico about it. In addition to learning about the worlds largest production cigar, we also learned a bit about the Azteca, which is the latest release from Gran Habano.

OK, this thing is FREAKIN’ HUGE. I got to walk around it at IPCPR and it certainly makes a statement. I really felt the need to climb up on it and ride it like Slim Pickens in Dr Strangelove. For the life of me I cant figure our how the “smokable” thing would actually work — how would you ever get a draw on this thing?
