We begin with an important programming note about the show. We then sip the Saugatuck Brewing Neapolitan Milk Stout before reviewing the Alec Bradley Gatekeeper and Arturo Fuente Xtra Viejo cigars. We riff about how our cigar preferences have changed, then we share some of the biggest single table-game wins in casino history.
Sip the fiery first-in-a-century bottling of Peerless bourbon. Smoke the Blind Man’s Bluff CT and Cavalier Genève cigars. Learn about heirloom cigar seeds and how to slow-play blackjack. Because you’ve earned it.
In this Cuba-themed show, we enjoy the Edmundo Dantes 15-year and Santiago de Cuba 11-year rums as well as two hand-rolled cigars — all straight from Cuba, and gifts of the wise and generous friend of the show, Roy. We wrap up with a primer about Pai Gow.
We sample two special releases of New Holland’s Dragon’s Milk line of beers — the triple mash and reserve maple oak. Tony doesn’t enjoy a La Palina Mr. Sam while Jason kinda-sorta enjoys a Diesel Whiskey Rwo cigar. We wrap up with a reflection on Vegas casino security in light of an LVPD officer being fired for freezing at Mandalay Bay.
Our annual summer vacation starts with an homage to Cuba, thanks to some Havana Club 7-year rum and a tasty hand-rolled cigar, courtesy of Roy. Jason also had a cigar — an Alec Bradley Project 40 Experimental Series stick. We wrap it up with a review of the Michigan commercial gaming review, courtesy of the American Gaming Association.
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.
Jason and Tony enjoy a Cohiba Ciglo No. 6 cigar, fresh from Tony’s vacation to Jamaica. The viceroys of vice talk about selling Caesars. Then we’re joined by our friend Bill, a rum connoisseur and occasional consumer judge, for the first of a multi-part series exploring the wild, wooly world of rum. This week: An Appleton Estates sampler.
Brave the winter chill with a Montecristo No. 2 cigar, a dram of Jefferson’s Grand Selection Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes Cask Finish bourbon, and an enjoyable chat about the implications of the forthcoming Circa resort casino in downtown Las Vegas.
This is the Agenda for the meet-up with The Bettor Life and The Vice Lounge Online.
Your viceroys of vice bless you with a pre-Christmas podcast featuring some tasty slow-cooker sangria and a conversation about keeping your tier credits if they’re due to expire. On the cigar front, Jason reviews the Hamlet Liberation, while Tony expresses his intense dismay over the Undercrown Sun Grown — which he bills as the worst cigar he’s ever smoked.
