    Re: So I bought a few cigars...

    Just finished smoking the Padron 1964 Anniversary Exclusivo maduro. I was definitely hesitant about this one due to the bad experience I had with the Padron 2000 maduro. But while the 1964 Anniversary maduro was definitely more full-bodied than the natural, it was still excellent. Lots of silky dark chocolate and just very smooth. Between the two I think I probably prefer the natural over the maduro. But I'm not nearly as adverse to the maduro's now as I was before. I wish I could afford to buy a box of the 1964 Anniversary Exclusivo naturals! But at nearly $300 I think I'll have to pass. This cigar hobby is far more expensive than the bourbons!

    Do you guys have any other recommendations since I like the Padron 1964 Anniversary?

    The Padron 1964 Anniversary is a good cigar, especially in maduro IMO.

    Try Arturo Fuente. Things like the Hemingway line you will probably like (except perhaps for the price), place but some like his 858 is decently priced and more in the medium area that you seem to prefer.

    La Gloria Cubana Wavells may fit your tastes as well, and but you may wish to steer clear of the Series R as they may be a bit more earthy and powerful than you would care for at this point.

    Finally, the you would probably like Mayorga as well, but you will be hard pressed to find them anywhere but JR Cigars.

    The 64 Padron is my favorite cigar, but at $12+ a stick can only be for special occasions. If you like them, try the '90 and '92 vintage Rocky Patels, they have a similar flavor profile and are a good bit cheaper.

    May not be much help since I mainly choose maduro, but Trinidad TTT have been pretty nice for a good price point. And as mentioned before, the Hemingway line is very good to from Arturo Fuente. Alec Bradley Tempus has made quite an impression on me tonight.

    Just smoked the Rocky Patel Decade. In my limited cigar knowledge/experience I thought it was pretty good. The draw was a little tight but overall I would probably buy it again. Looking forward to trying the Fifteenth Anniversary and hopefully a few others that have been mentioned here.

    I just smoked a Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur limited edition. It was a Presidente (that's the size up from Churchill right?). It burned very evenly throughout its entire length. It wasn't an overly strong cigar, but it the quality of construction made it even more enjoyable than it otherwise would have been.

    Went to a local tobacco shop today. Walked out with a Brick House and a Cain Daytona on the recommendation of the guy working there.
