Null

The original vitola of the Benji Menendez Partagas Master Series is slated to return to retail shelves this spring along with a new vitola, according to a source familiar with the pending announcement.

The 6 x 46 Majestuoso vitola debuted in 2009 to critical acclaim, as Menendez combined a Cameroon wrapper with Dominican filler and binder to produce an incredibly flavorful cigar that came with an MSRP of just under $10.

There is also a new Prominentes size slated to be added to the Benji Menendez Partagas Master Series. While the specific measurements have not been released, the traditional Prominentes size is 7 5/8 x 49.

The Benji Menendez Partagas Master Series recently added a 6 x 54 Toro called the LX that began shipping in November. It is a limited release with production capped at 5,000 boxes, each containing 18 cigars. That cigar has an MSRP of $10.75 per cigar and $193.50 per box. The LX blend consists of a Cameroon wrapper over a Connecticut Havana-seed binder with a filler blend of Dominican Piloto Cubano and Nicaraguan tobacco, including some from Ometepe. The name signifies Menendez’s 60 years in the industry, as LX is 60 in Roman numerals.

As with the original release, the Majestuosos and Prominentes vitolas of the Partagas Benji Menendez Master Series are being made at General Cigar Dominicana in Santiago. The release date is currently schedule for April and May.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
