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.
