Chicken Cock Whiskey — Bourbon and Rye
Just like many folks whose interest is piqued by Chicken Cock Whiskey, it was the name and the bottling that caught my attention first. Seriously, how are you not going to stop and take notice of a whiskey when it’s named ‘Chicken Cock’ and has that cool honeycomb detailing on the bottle. Then I sought to find out what’s underneath the cork and sampled both the Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Bourbon and Rye Whiskeys. Both the Kentucky Straight Bourbon ($60) and the Kentucky Straight Rye ($70) clock in at 90-proof which really is a sweet spot for me. I love a good piping hot high ABV barrel-proof release as much as anyone but when the clock strikes 5 o’clock the first pour I go to is something smooth that doesn’t need water.
The Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Rye is a medium copper with brown sugar on the nose and a cornucopia of peach, cedar, black tea, and heat on the palate. The Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a mixture of two mashbills (78% corn, 12% rye, 10% malted barley and 74% corn, 18% rye, 8% malted barley) aged at least two years. On the nose you’ll find layers of cake, sticky banana, and on the tongue you’ll get waves smooth caramel, and some rye spice. I enjoyed both of these but if I had to choose one, I’d gravitate towards the Rye but that might be because I’m hooked on rye lately.

A Hangover Remedy To Believe In
I’ve tried Hungover AF a couple of times since then, and while it might not be the instantaneous cure-all I look forward to more than flying cars, hoverboards that actually hover, and every other invention people in the past predicted would exist by now, nothing else has come close to delivering the results I’ve been seeking for far too long.
In the end, the best way to cure a hangover is to drink in a responsible manner that prevents you from getting one in the first place. Sadly, I don’t see myself developing that kind of self-control any time soon, and if you’re in the same boat, I could not give Hungover AF a more ringing endorsement.
Get Back In Shape With The Help Of New Gear
I’ve been absolutely loving the Janji Runterra Active Tee [$48]. I picked it up about two weeks ago in this same color and have worn it a few times, the fabric feels amazing. It’s a high-performance shirt built for running or chilling out and it’s constructed from a blend of 75% supima® cotton and 25% 37.5® polyester. Janji’s commitment to sustainable materials and responsible manufacturing come together in this fast-drying and thermo-regulating high-tech shirt you’re going to love.
You can pair that shirt with the all-new Janji Transit Tech Shorts – Linerless 6″ [$74]. These all-purpose shorts come in three colorways (Iron, Ranger, and Thunderhead) and the shell is a blend of 88% polyester and 12% spandex. I scooped these shorts when I got that shirt above and I’m almost embarrassed to admit how often I’ve been wearing the shorts. I’m hooked. They are treated with a durable water repellent (DWR) finish to shed light rain, built from a two-way fabric that’s designed to move naturally with your body, and the double-weave interior facing design prevents the fabric from sticking to sweaty skin while you hit the trails or go for a run. I’ve mostly been wearing them around the house but they really are built to tackle everything.

NVIDIA GeForce’s Newest Gaming Laptops
We are living in the Golden Age of Gaming and we can thank NVIDIA GeForce‘s latest tech for getting us there. NVIDIA powers the world’s fastest gaming laptops but you know this if you’re into gaming. NVIDIA is a household name if you’re a PC gamer. With that said, maybe you are in the market for a new laptop for someone else this year or just looking to upgrade?
I’m not saying you have to buy one of these laptops powered by the award-winning NVIDIA GeForce GPUs in order to have a great PC gaming experience but I’m also not-not saying that. I just think that anyone out there who enjoys gaming, and that’s just about everyone who’s taken enough time to find the games they like (there’s something for everyone), would benefit from these best-in-class NVIDIA gaming laptops.

Unique Items For Enjoying Life More
I wanted to kick it off with one of the most interesting whiskeys to come across my palate in years, Coalition Whiskey’s 100% Rye Kentucky Straight Whiskey [$89] that is finished in Sauternes barrels. The first thing that caught my attention about this release wasn’t even the whiskey, it’s the iconic Art Deco bottles that look like the crystal decanters I remember at my grandma’s house as a kid. I’m a sucker for appearances and while the bottle caught my attention it’s what’s under the cork that really blew me away.
Coalition Whiskey is a new company founded by the former Russian Standard USA CEO, the owner of the Kentucky Artisan Distillery, and a 20+ year veteran wine maker. These three industry experts came together to produce an out of this world line of 100% Rye Whiskey finished in Bordeaux wine barrels. There are three expressions in total but the one featured here is finished in Sauternes Barriques. It has a deep amber color and it’s booming with apricot, vanilla, and caramel on the nose. The smooth palate offers up perfectly layered hints of toffee, dried fruit, and almond. If you are looking for a whiskey unlike anything else you’ll drink this year then I implore you to check out Coalition Whiskey’s portfolio.

Powerade is the proud official sports drink of NCAA March Madness and this year they’ve launched ‘POWER in Numbers’ which will see bottles labeled 0-99 rolled out at stores nationwide so athletes from every walk of life can drink Powerade and Powerade Zero with their jersey number on the bottle. They sent me a preview bottle, I dig it, but they also sent this muscle massager that I literally haven’t put down for days. I legitimately don’t remember what life was like before I got this Hypervolt GO. So be fully prepared for me too talk about this product for years because I’m hooked.

Flint And Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Hudson Jacket
For the Flannel-Lined Waxed Hudson Jacket, Flint and Tinder updated the classic style with a modern fit and introduced the soft and cozy flannel lining. This rugged jacket design has been a go-to choice of hunters for over a century but this style has since made its way into everyday life and we’re all better off for it. BroBible readers can use the promo code ‘hudson35‘ at checkout for 35% off of this jacket’s price.
Vintage-Style Performance Jorts
erformance Jorts’ seems a bit redundant because every pair of jorts on the planet will enable you to run fast and jump higher like the P.F. Flyers from The Sandlot. They’re basically wearable steroids. Pure distilled denim Vitamin S. That’s how I see it. But these jorts from Ripton and Co. are amazing and I wanted to put the two pairs on your radar today so you can cop them before the weather changes.
Classic EDC Gear
This classic and iconic Barbour Korrin Quilt Jacket [$280] is always in style. Barbour’s been in business for over 125 years and puttin gout the best British countryside fashions in the game.

Distraction-Free ‘Light’ Smartphone
I’ve been aware that I spend too much time on my smartphone for years but I became painfully aware of it about a year ago when suddenly my left pinky started hurting all the time and I realized it’s because of how I was holding my phone all the time. I’ve tried to scale back the time I spend looking at my phone but we’re all guilty of Doom Scrolling. For anyone out there looking to make a change in this behavior, there’s good news thanks to the Light Phone II – Distraction-Free Cell Phone (on sale for $299).
The Light Phone II – Distraction-Free Cell Phone ($299, usually $350) initially raised over $3.5 MILLION on Indiegogo and the finished product really is amazing. It’s a slimmed-down smartphone that comes with a universal SIM card you can use at your carrier (Verizon, T-Mobile, etc). What exactly does ‘slimmed-down smartphone’ even mean? Well, it focuses on the necessities.
