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.
This is the Agenda for the meet-up with The Bettor Life and The Vice Lounge Online.
We sip a cranberry bourbon cocktail and we discuss value bourbons and the cost of a bottle. We also review the My Father La Opulencia (Tony’s turn!) and the Drew Estates Kentucky Fire Cured cigars. We wrap up with a list of reasons why the bartender at the video poker bar hates you.
We review the Coppercraft Distillery straight bourbon whiskey, which Jason fixes with the artisanal Jason’s Fire Extinguisher No. 1 cocktail. Then Jason smokes the Rocky Patel Aged, Limited & Rare as a lead-in to refreshing your memory about cigar shapes. We wrap up with a discussion about picking casino games based on house advantage.
Your viceroys of vice sample a copule of Weller bourbons while chatting about whiskey at 30k feet. Then we discuss the tasty Vato Las Vegas blend cigars before enlightening you about Michigan’s commercial casino landscape.
We review five different bonded bourbons, plus Jason reviews the Perdomo Estate Selection Vintage Sun Grown and the gurus of gaming talk “group gaming.”
Raise your glencairns in tribute to a quadruple-header: We review four Old Forester bourbons — the Classic 86, the 1870 Original Batch, the 1897 Bottled in Bond and the 1920 Prohibition Style. Then we informally chat about Jason’s observations playing new-to-him carnival games at the casino. We wrap up with a pair of cigar reviews: Tony enjoys the Davidoff Las Vegas while Jason puffed on The T.
In this brief solo show, Jason assumes full command whilst Tony galavants in Atlantic City. As such, you’ve been treated to a review of the new Rocky Patel Vintage 2006 San Andreas Toro. We’ve dropped in a long-ago-recorded segment about the MB Roland bourbon, a gift from Alastair. And then Jason invites you to get off his lawn with casino-game apps on your smartphone or tablet.
Merry Christmas! In this episode, Taylor & Tara talk bourbons with us before Tony shares the SELF-NAMED “thin mint martony” cocktail. Then we review a pair of cigars — the Crowned Head Luminosa and the Futuro — before pontificating about millennials and casinos.
We review the Herman Marshall Texas Bourbon — a lovely listener gift! — then roll into reviews of La Aurora Connecticut and Montecristo Epic cigars. We touch on 10 points of cigar etiquette for new smokers (a riff from Cigar Aficionado) then explore casino banking regulations courtesy of FINCEN.
