Want to meet Jason and Tony (who wouldn’t, right?) or need an excuse to get out of the house for a premium cigar and a fine adult beverage? Well, then, join our monthly get-togethers!
Join us on an über-exciting voyage of podcasting excellence as the VLO boys record remotely from Grand River Cigar in Grand Rapids, Mich. Jason and Tony are joined by Jon and Dan of the Cigars and Scotch podcast, with special guest appearances by Robin Day of Grand River Cigar (co-owner) and Rick Reinstein (sidekick extraordinaire and honorary VLO intern). The free-wheelin’ conversation includes reviews of the Caol Ila 12-year single malt Scotch whisky, the Alec Bradley Prensado (Gordo) and various stories that will warm the cockles of your shriveled souls. Can’t miss!
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.
Last Thursday, West Michigan’s best smoke shop — Grand River Cigar — hosted its first-ever event, a marketing promo by the good folks at Xikar.
