Cigar Veteran Benji Menendez Retiring

G. Clay Whittaker, Gregory Mottola
Posted: December 5, 2013

(continued from page 1)

Last year, Cigar Aficionado inducted Menendez into the magazine's Hall of Fame. When asked how he feels about being regarded as an industry legend, Menendez humbly shrugged it off. "You want to know my definition of the word legend?" he said. "A legend is just an exaggeration of the facts."
