Bill returns for Part III of our foray into rum, this time touching on some overproof spirits. Then we wrap up our two-parter about state regulatory reform for the gaming industry. Tony reviews the Hoya de Monterrey Epicure No. 2 — a Cuban puro — then Jason slides into home plate with a Cigar Factory New Orleans Plantation Reserve cigar.
We start with another rum segment with Bill Carney — we enjoy the J. Wray Gold rum, the Smith & Cross traditional Jamaican rum and the Doctor Bird Jamaican rum. Then we review the Arturo Fuente Reserva Don Carlos Eye of the Shark cigar, a gift from the studly Texan, Mr. Chris Moore himself. Then we begin a two-parter about regulatory reform at the state level, within the gaming industry. All that, plus we launch a new 4-by-6 reference card to help you navigate basic strategy and tastings.
