An unidentified buyer who is totally not compensating for anything has purchased a gigantic cigar for $185,000.
The Gran Habano #5 El Gigante measures an astounding 19 feet long by 3 feet wide, according to FCN. The super-stogie is wrapped in 16,000 wrapper leaves and weighs approximately 1,600 pounds. That’s the equivalent of 25,000 regular smokes.
The cigar sold for $15,000 below the recommended price to a private collector who lives outside the United States, the Tampa Tribune reports.
The cigar comes with its own 900-pound wooden carrying case.
