We set the stage for podcasting excellence with a dram of The Sexton Single-Malt Irish Whiskey before segueing into reviews of the Gurkha Cellar Reserve 18-year and Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 cigars. We then explore the meaning of cigar-wrapper colors. Also on deck: A review of the recently expanded Gun Lake Casino, a tribal facility in Allegan County, Michigan.
Two months later, we re-examine the Supreme Court case around PASPA, we sip a delicious Sazerac, Tony smokes a Winston Churchill, and Jason enjoys a Asylum 13 Medulla Oblongata.
The Boyd B-Connected program; the Davidoff 702 Series and Carlos A. Fuente Personal Reserve cigars; a comparison of the Midwinter's Night Dram vs. Angel's Envy Rye; a walk-through of the Top 20 Whiskeys per Cigar Advocate.
In which your viceroys of vice teach you a basic Paigow strategery, sip some Wild Turkey Master's Keep Revival, decode bourbon labels, and smoke an Acid Blondie and a Bellas Artes by AJ Fernandez.
In this special one-off bonus show, we share an interview with Mike Bird of MichiGrain Distillery in downtown Lansing, Michigan.
Your viceroys of vice sample a copule of Weller bourbons while chatting about whiskey at 30k feet. Then we discuss the tasty Vato Las Vegas blend cigars before enlightening you about Michigan's commercial casino landscape.
We address tips for new cigar smokers; blackjack strategy cards; the etiquette of pitch blackjack; Midwinter's Night Dram blended rye whiskey. A bit of echo here -- this is an older recording that we've mostly rehabbed.
Recording challenge, per usual -- wrong mic selected. D'oh. We cover the Zino Platinum Rocket cigar, drink the Elmer T. Lee bourbon; and chat about the difference between Strip, Downtown, and locals casinos.
A reflection from 360Vegas Vacation VII, plus the Knob Creek 2001 Limited Edition.
We review five different bonded bourbons, plus Jason reviews the Perdomo Estate Selection Vintage Sun Grown and the gurus of gaming talk "group gaming."
Raise your glencairns in tribute to a quadruple-header: We review four Old Forester bourbons — the Classic 86, the 1870 Original Batch, the 1897 Bottled in Bond and the 1920 Prohibition Style. Then we informally chat about Jason's observations playing new-to-him carnival games at the casino. We wrap up with a pair of cigar reviews: Tony enjoys the Davidoff Las Vegas while Jason puffed on The T.
In which the viceroys of vice relate last weekend's excursion to Windsor, Ontario. Highlights include offending celebrities, broiling atop a distillery, "enjoying" a Cuban cigar, lamenting slow restaurant service and venturing to Windsor-area breweries.
We explore one-off casinos, sip the Balvenie 21-year single-malt Scotch, discuss the standards of classifying alcohol and enjoy a pair of cigars -- the Isabela Sparkle and the Casa Fernandez Miami Arsenio Oro.
Trip reports are so passé—so instead we regale you with a series of reflections about our recent Las Vegas trip for ZorkFest and 360Vegas Vacation VI. Whilst pontificating, we sip some Blanton's bourbon.
We sip the Spring Bijou cocktail while offering practical springtime guidance for keeping bugs outta yo' drinks. Then, in our cigar segment, Tony revisits the Baccarat 1871 before Jason reviews the MF the Judge -- after which, we talk about beetles, mold and bloom. Finally, Jason and Tony offer a few casino games to try … and a few to avoid.
