Despite his impending retirement, Benjamin “Benji” Menendez is not done, yet. The Partagas Benji Homage 62 will debut in two sizes according to Cigar Aficionado. The cigar, the second line to carry his name, uses a Cuban-seed Connecticut wrapper. The 62 is in reference to the 62 years Menendez has spent in the cigar industry.

In 2009, General Cigar Co. released the Partagas Benji Menendez Master Series.
