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.
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.
