Benji Menendez is considered by many to be one of the leading cigar blenders in the world. His work with General Cigar, particularly on Partagas, has created some of the industry’s most legendary and beloved blends. For this special series, Benji decided to take his talents to Macanudo and create a cigar very different than any other within the brand. The Crü Royale is considerably stronger than the rest of the Macanudo line and features a complex combination of tobaccos. It is rolled with vintage Brazilian, Dominican, and Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos finished with an oily Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that gives it a savory and spicy flavor profile. One of the only Macanudos to be rated in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25, these delicious smokes are available for the lowest price possible right now at Santa Clara Cigars.
