All that, plus we launch a new 4-by-6 reference card to help you navigate basic strategy and tastings.

Get an aural shot of antibiotics with the Penicillin Cocktail, a tasty prelude to a brief discussion of the Avo 30-year cigar. We wrap up with an informative discourse about a recent odd memorandum about online gaming courtesy of the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as with some zesty outtakes.
