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!
