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.
Jason and Tony enjoy a Cohiba Ciglo No. 6 cigar, fresh from Tony’s vacation to Jamaica. The viceroys of vice talk about selling Caesars. Then we’re joined by our friend Bill, a rum connoisseur and occasional consumer judge, for the first of a multi-part series exploring the wild, wooly world of rum. This week: An Appleton Estates sampler.
Tony’s soon off to the Bahamas, so what better way to celebrate than with a generous splash of Plantation Rum? That sweet amber lubricates Jason’s experience with the Isla del Sol toro cigar. We wrap up with some thoughts about the “good” bets at the craps table, for beginners — and don’t worry, next week, we discuss the bad ones.
We start with a review of the Russell’s Reserve Small Batch 10-year whiskey and the Taildragger amber rum — both gifts from @skyyontherocks — then we pivot to Jason’s experience with the Camacho candela cigar. We wrap it up with some tips for using the casino as your home base for a non-casino trip.
In this well-lubricated episode, Jason and Tony enjoy a taste of the Bumbu rum. Tony shares his experience with the Anastasia Caldwell 1918 cigar, followed by Jason’s review of the Montecristo Reverence bellicoso. We then slide into the third and final segment about casino credit—debt collections and bankruptcy. Plus outtakes and a large amount of loosey-goosey banter. Can’t miss! Happy new year!
We enjoy the tasty Zaya rum, Tony reviews the Tristan Connecticut and Jason reviews the Montecristo Artisan series cigars — then we both offer lauds to the American Gaming Association for recent advocacy wins that benefit casino players.
We drink authentic rum, we smoke a couple cigars and we discuss Vegas!
This week we drink the Flor de Cana 18-year rum, followed by a review of the Leaf by Oscar and the Davidoff Escurio. Finally we wrap up with a discussion of Blackjack conditions for better play.
While we’re out in Vegas, please enjoy this show as we discuss rums, cigars and Las Vegas!
We put a twist on the Cuba Libre, we show you the money, and we each smoke a cigar for reviews.
