Tequila Don Julio Reposado, Double Cask
Tequila Don Julio Reposado, Double Cask is the luxury tequila brand’s first industry-disrupting innovation in years, and it’s good. Do you like tequila? Obviously. Do you enjoy scotch whisky? Well, you’re in for a treat with Double Cask. Tequila Don Julio Reposado, Double Cask is a limited-edition tequila that’s finished for 30 days in the American White Oak barrels used to age Buchanan’s Blended Scotch Whisky. This has created a very distinct flavor profile. Double Cask is a high-end tequila with hints of whisky on the finish.
Master Distiller Enrique de Colsa commented, “I spent three years experimenting with various cask options to perfect the flavor of this variant and I’m proud to introduce it to the U.S. I found that finishing the tequila for one month in casks used in the making of Buchanan’s Blended Scotch Whisky allowed me to create a tequila that perfectly balances the core flavor of Tequila Don Julio as well as the signature flavor of Buchanan’s Blended Scotch Whisky. It’s an incredibly unique flavor profile that is excellent enjoyed responsibly neat or on the rocks.”
Listen up, your home bar simply isn’t complete without a bottle of this exquisite tequila. You can read the full press release below before hopping over to your local bottle shop to pick up the finest tequila release of 2018.
New Mophie Powerstation Battery Collection Exclusively With Lightning Connector
I’m an Apple user with an iPhone and Macbook. You know what annoys me? Having a house full of random ass mini-USB cables and other types of USB cables that *aren’t* for my iPhone. Every time I get a new speaker, or charger, or a pair of headphones I’ve got a new USB cord. If I could simplify my life by ridding it of the clutter and only having the Apple Lightning cable, I would. And that’s precisely the reason I love Mophie’s new line of Powerstation Batteries.
One cable. That’s it. You use the Lightning cable for your iPhone to charge up your battery. This way you don’t need to travel with extra cables. The Powerstation Plus XL line also has the capability to charge up wirelessly just like your new iPhone. As an iPhone user, this is definitely the best and most useful line of Mophie external batteries I’ve come across yet. You can shop the collection exclusively at Mophie.com by following the link below or at Apple.com
The $160 Watch That’ll Make Your Boss Jealous
We love Vincero Watches because they make badass, high-end style timepieces that exude luxury without the outrageous price. We appreciate when a company knows it’s only as good as its product, regardless of the logo or the price tag. The dudes at Vincero know luxury is defined by process and quality, not brand and price. It’s that mindset that drives them to make watches that stunt in the boardroom or the bar, which is exactly what we look for in a luxury timepiece.
Adidas Originals Sobakov Shoes In Two Colorways
The Adidas Sobakov drops tomorrow (technically tonight at 3am) and it’ll be released in two colorways, Black and White. This soccer-inspired sneaker features swerving three stripes and laces which pay homage to the iconic ’00s Adidas Predator Precision. The sculpted outsole is a wavy herringbone pattern and ultimately the defining feature of the Sobakov’s design. They are made with a stretchy knit upper for extreme comfort and a bold sculpted rubber outsole that’s designed to turn heads.
CRKT K270GKP Homefront Tactical Knife
This is one of the sickest knives from CRKT, the Homefront Tactical Knife. It comes in 4 colors but I immediately gravitated towards this colorway. It incorporates CRKT’s innovative “field strip” technology, this technology allows you to field strip your knife for cleaning without needing expensive specialized tools. It’s made with a 1.4116 blade steel with glass reinforced nylon handles and was designed by the infamous Ken Onion.
New Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph Racket
Wilson recently debuted the all-new Pro Staff R& 95 Autograph racket. This new racket includes elegantly classic white accents at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions and introduces the design concept of graphics that can actually enhance performance on the court.
Wilson LABS, the innovation hub at Wilson, used the stark contrast of Classic White on an all-black racket frame to introduce a new level of visual acuity to the racket when it is in motion. The racket’s look is grounded in two classic and contrasting colors, black and white. Refined, minimalistic design elements have been brought to the forefront to fully complete Roger Federer’s ultimate black and white tuxedo look, a look that matches his elegant and timeless personal style.
The inside throat of the new Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph rackets carries a more prominent Roger Federer signature. And the outside throat features a matching Wilson logo in Classic White and the Pro Staff franchise name, which has been laser etched into the racket in silver chrome lettering.

Super Chill Sunglasses Are Built For Running
Summer means the longest days of the of the year and that means more time for getting in cardio outdoors. Running without sunglasses isn’t an option for me, I’d go blind within minutes. That’s where Goodr sunglasses come into play. They’re sunglasses built for runners and designed by runners, and they look like normal sunglasses instead of you’re typical pair of marathoner shades.
Authentic Tortilla Maker Kit
At home, taco night is my favorite night. It’s the night I get to pile on enormous servings without the person behind the counter judging me. I thought that getting a cast-iron platter for my grill to cook fish tacos was bringing my taco game to the next level but I now realize that in order to *REALLY* elevate taco night I’m going to need this authentic Tortilleria Kit from Verve Culture.
Tracksmith’s Hybrid Shorts Are Perfect For Running And Swimming
The problem with running gear and athleisure wear for men are that 99% of the clothing looks like workout gear. In other words, running shorts look like running shorts and not like “just running to the mall and maybe a beer with friends” shorts. Thankfully, Tracksmith understands that men go on runs and then maybe jump in the pool or do other stuff before hitting the shower.
