Tony’s back from Atlantic City! In this show, we start with a listener call and a listener email, then we sip Dow’s ruby and tawny ports. From there, Tony shares his disappointing experience with a Rocky Patel Sungrown Maduro cigar while Jason riffs about the Kristoff Habano Churchill. We wrap up with a legal-beagle segment about a U.S. Supreme Court cast around legalizing sports betting in New Jersey. Plus outtakes!
Has TITO (ticket-in/ticket-out) started to yield to embedded chips in players cards? Your gurus of gambling investigate. Then they discuss the purchase of cigars from private sellers — and then, they enjoy the Warre Optima 10 tawny port.
Join Jason and Tony as they speculate about a potential Midwest property sell-off by Caesar’s Entertainment. Then Jason shares his perspective on four recent cigars he’s enjoyed: the Davidoff Double R, the Padron Serie 1926, the Gurkha Cellar Reserve and the Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Dark Corojo. We wrap it up with a sad anecdote about a bottle of expensive port with a decomposing cork, and how you can fix similar problems.
… the problem wasn’t with my removal technique. The problem was that the cork itself had long since started to disintegrate.
For those moments where a quick-but-decent libation is preferable to wasting time and effort mixing a cocktail, we recommend keeping a decanter or three on hand.
