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.
Wowza! Lots to go through. We start with some administrative notes about our website redesign and new functionality. Then we review the M-43 N.E. India Pale Ale, a gift from listener Patrick from Grand Rapids. Tony tells a story about why he picked up a Macanudo Gold Label cigar, then Jason offers a review of the H Upmann AJ Fernandez Churchill. We wrap it up with Tony’s report of his annual family Christmas holiday in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada.
Jason and Tony wrap up their four-part “Drinking Whiskey” series with a review of common accessories and cocktails — accompanied by the hard-to-get but oh-so-tasty Old Ripy Batch 1 bourbon. Then Jason reviews the Enclave Churchill, an AJ Fernandez cigar, before diving into tips for using a video poker machine. *Machine* mind you — this isn’t a VP tutorial.
Jason and Tony enjoy the most technically complicated cocktail we’ve ever made — the “banana bread cocktail,” otherwise known as a “King McKong.” Then Jason reviews an AJ Fernandez Enclave cigar, followed by Tony’s review of a Macanudo Mao. Finally, in the context of the Phil Ivey vs. Borgata controversy, we explore one writer’s complaint that casinos are too big to fail.
Another solo show for Tony as he drinks the Jefferson’s Reserve bourbon, smokes an AJ Fernandez Diesel Uncut Ct, and share the illegality of dice sliding!
This week we review the Wynn casino/9th Circuit tip pooling, the Willett Pot Still bourbon and we smoke an AJ Fernandez & Nestor Miranda smoke.
We take a week off from drinking due to Dry January, we smoke the AJ Fernandez New World cigars and we discuss certain online gaming terms for legal clarification.
