Podcast 426: @KYPeerless Rye Honey Oak & Citrus Manhattan; @CastleAndKey Martini; The Oscar from @OVcigars; Punch Gran Puro Nicaragua; Losing at Winstar; Shiny New Horseshoe Southern Indiana

In our first recording session back from summer vacation, we share snippets of the fun Jason and Tony had in Louisville, KY and that Jason had in Denton, TX. Through which, we sample a Manhattan made with Peerless Rye’s special Honey Oak & Citrus whiskey. We also enjoy a martini made with Castle & Key gin. Jason delighted in The Oscar, hand-picked for him by Oscar Valladares himself at Cigar Frogs in Texas; Tony smoked a Punch Gran Puro Nicaragua. Finally, we share Jason’s gambling woes at the Winstar Casino & Resort in Oklahoma while we marvel in the soon-to-be-finished construction project at the Horseshoe Southern Indiana. So much content, so little time.

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!
