In which your viceroys of vice teach you a basic Paigow strategery, sip some Wild Turkey Master’s Keep Revival, decode bourbon labels, and smoke an Acid Blondie and a Bellas Artes by AJ Fernandez.
In this special one-off bonus show, we share an interview with Mike Bird of MichiGrain Distillery in downtown Lansing, Michigan.
Your viceroys of vice sample a copule of Weller bourbons while chatting about whiskey at 30k feet. Then we discuss the tasty Vato Las Vegas blend cigars before enlightening you about Michigan’s commercial casino landscape.
We address tips for new cigar smokers; blackjack strategy cards; the etiquette of pitch blackjack; Midwinter’s Night Dram blended rye whiskey. A bit of echo here — this is an older recording that we’ve mostly rehabbed.
Recording challenge, per usual — wrong mic selected. D’oh. We cover the Zino Platinum Rocket cigar, drink the Elmer T. Lee bourbon; and chat about the difference between Strip, Downtown, and locals casinos.
A reflection from 360Vegas Vacation VII, plus the Knob Creek 2001 Limited Edition.
We review five different bonded bourbons, plus Jason reviews the Perdomo Estate Selection Vintage Sun Grown and the gurus of gaming talk “group gaming.”
Raise your glencairns in tribute to a quadruple-header: We review four Old Forester bourbons — the Classic 86, the 1870 Original Batch, the 1897 Bottled in Bond and the 1920 Prohibition Style. Then we informally chat about Jason’s observations playing new-to-him carnival games at the casino. We wrap up with a pair of cigar reviews: Tony enjoys the Davidoff Las Vegas while Jason puffed on The T.
In which the viceroys of vice relate last weekend’s excursion to Windsor, Ontario. Highlights include offending celebrities, broiling atop a distillery, “enjoying” a Cuban cigar, lamenting slow restaurant service and venturing to Windsor-area breweries.
We explore one-off casinos, sip the Balvenie 21-year single-malt Scotch, discuss the standards of classifying alcohol and enjoy a pair of cigars — the Isabela Sparkle and the Casa Fernandez Miami Arsenio Oro.
