We start by sipping the Old Granddad bottled-in-bond bourbon. Mixed reviews. On a cigar front, Tony smoked the Timeless Sterling whilst Jason puffed the FSG by Drew Estate. On the “more you know” front, we share some facts and myths around HR 1854 (a bill about the FDA’s regulation of premium hand-rolled cigars) as well as explore relative comp offers between video poker and slot players.
We review the Hudson Baby Bourbon Whiskey and the Ernesto Connecticut and East India Co. Havana Blend cigars — as well as offer a recap of the DC Circuit’s smack-down of the FDA over cigar labeling regulations.
Jason shares the high-level damage of the FDA’s newly announced cigar regulations, but Duane from Oklahoma swoops in with a call to review the Oliva Serie O. After the review, Jason gives the Tincup Colorado whiskey a spin to lubricate the discussion about the ongoing legal woes for the daily fantasy sports industry.
Jason and Tony debate the relative merits of saving up for one or two annual destination casino trips, versus more frequent local casino trips. After that, your Czars of Cigars review the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s proposed rules governing the regulation of premium cigars. Then we “whine” about a pair of white wines we didn’t really enjoy.
