Our annual summer vacation starts with an homage to Cuba, thanks to some Havana Club 7-year rum and a tasty hand-rolled cigar, courtesy of Roy. Jason also had a cigar — an Alec Bradley Project 40 Experimental Series stick. We wrap it up with a review of the Michigan commercial gaming review, courtesy of the American Gaming Association.
You think the title of this show is long? Just you wait to see how we stretch our closing script. This is the first time ever, in VLO history, we actually let the entire audio track of our bumper music run all the way through, becuase it needed to run all the way through. Yikes. Anyway, in this exciting, totally rad podcast, we sip the Old Forester 1910 Old Fine Whisky — a gift from A Fanboy! — then dive into a pair of cigars. Jason sampled the Montecristo Pilotico Pepe Mendez while Tony herfed the A. Flores 1975 Serie Privada Capa Habano SP52. Say that five times fast! We wrap with a brief foray into the minutiae of video poker and blackjack basic strategy that the cards — even our glorious card — won’t tell you. Can’t miss!
Get ready to ruuuuumble. In this corner, the beleaguered Crescent Creek bourbon. In the other corner, Jason buys a box of cigars and a new humidor. In the other other corner, Tony smokes a Macanudo Inspirado. In the other other other corner, your gurus of gambling discuss Jason’s conservative craps betting strategery. Plus outtakes! It’s like Christmas at the end of June.
Jason force-feeds Tony a pair of martinis — one made with Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice gin and the other with Roku Gin from the Suntory distillery in Japan. Turns out, he liked one and hated one. Then, we talk about good conduct regarding cigars, alcohol and smartphones while you’re at the casino.
We start with the Jim Beam Distiller’s Masterpiece before settling into the Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Edición de Aniversario cigar. We wrap up with chatter about pending legislation in Illinois that would significantly upend that state’s gaming environment.
In which, we reflect on our experiences at 360Vegas Vacation VIII in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada.
In this well-lubricated show, we review the New Holland Dragon’s Milk White stout beer (yay!) and the Gurkha Cellar Reserve 18-year Hedonism cigar (boo!). Then, your gurus of gaming explore the 1980s-era case of negligence by the El Dorado casino. Plus, a two-minute blooper reel.
In this marathon voyage into auditory brilliance, Jason and Tony enjoy a sampler pack of the Redbreast (Irish) whiskey before sharing a few milestone innovations in whiskey technology. We then relate the tale of Ken Uston and blackjack card counting, from the perspective of the New Jersey Supreme Court. We wrap up with a pair of stogie reviews — the Nestor Miranda 75th Anniversary, and the Partagas Serie E No. 2 Cuban puro.
A bit about a bottle. An infinity bottle, that is. Sometimes called a solera bottle.
