Where, oh where, does your bankroll go when you’re on a gambling vacation? Jason and Tony tell you! Then Tony shares his love/hate experience with the Macanudo Gold Label and Jason gives some props to a Cohiba. Down the hatch we go after that, taste-testing the Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban single-malt Scotch — and learning what just a hunk of ice can do for an alcoholic.
Jason and Tony begin by dissecting the reader votes for the 2014 Trippie awards sponsored by VegasTripping. Then — chucking themselves under the bus — the Czars of Cigars relate their recent epic fail and offer tips about how you can avoid getting caught without any cigar-related documentation. Finally, Jason takes Tony on a brief tour of Scotland by means of Scapa 16, Glenmorangie Nectar d’Or and Johnnie Walker Swing. And, of course — Tony’s social shout-outs.
After revisiting basic strategy and card counting, thanks to a call from Ted, Jason and Tony review the Davidoff Nicaragua toro then embark upon a taste comparison of two high-quality Highlands malts — The Dalmore King Alexander III and Glenmorangie Ealanta.
In this action-packed podcast, the Viceroys of Vice cover a cigar and Scotch dinner at The Borgata (Atlantic City) this Friday, courtesy of Dan from New Jersey; Stephen’s trip review from the 360 Vegas Vacation; lighting a cigar properly with a butane torch; using kitty litter to control your humidor’s humidity; the Glenmorangie Ealanta 19-year single-malt Scotch whisky; and several social-media shout-outs.
Jason and Tony discuss the politics of opening casinos to augment state/local budgets (with an eye toward a major referendum in Michigan this Movember). Then Jason shares the tale of cigar-related fun at a recent Xicar event at Grand River Cigar in Grand Rapids, Mich., before relaying Tony’s “still very newbie” comparative reaction to samples of Glenmorangie Nectar d’Or, Oban 15 and Glenrothes Select Reserve.
