Tony regales us with tales of the legal aspects of the Steve Wynn/Joe Francis defamation drama, then he briefly recounts two bad cigar experiences before Jason and Tony dive into a few things that your local cigar shop may allow — but which you shouldn’t do.
Join us on an über-exciting voyage of podcasting excellence as the VLO boys record remotely from Grand River Cigar in Grand Rapids, Mich. Jason and Tony are joined by Jon and Dan of the Cigars and Scotch podcast, with special guest appearances by Robin Day of Grand River Cigar (co-owner) and Rick Reinstein (sidekick extraordinaire and honorary VLO intern). The free-wheelin’ conversation includes reviews of the Caol Ila 12-year single malt Scotch whisky, the Alec Bradley Prensado (Gordo) and various stories that will warm the cockles of your shriveled souls. Can’t miss!
