Jack Daniel’s 2020 Single Barrel Special Release Barrel Proof Rye

Jack Daniel’s 2020 Single Barrel Special Release Barrel Proof Rye

Jack Daniel's

The 2020 Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Special Release is out and this year’s expression is a Barrel Proof Rye that just hit shelves between 125-140 proof. I’ve sipped a sample of this (just a dram, not an actual bottle) and the cask strength character shines through but it doesn’t overpower itself like some barrelproof whiskeys out there.

This Single Barrel Special Release has a mashbill of 70% rye, 12% malt, and 18% corn and it features the distillery’s newest grain bill since Prohibition, let that sink in. It has notes of toasted fruit, raisins, and rich caramel with a deep copper color and a little rye pepper on the finish. This release is priced at $65 but it’s available in extremely limited amounts, only 200 barrels, so that price is certain to skyrocket on the secondary market.


Cole Haan x Hasan Minhaj GrandPrø Rally Court Sneaker

Cole Haan x Hasan Minjah Grand Pro Sneakers

Cole Haan

The Cole Haan x Hasan Minhaj GrandPrø Rally Court Sneaker was just released today and I was fortunate enough to cop a pair for myself. This is a limited-edition custom collaboration between Cole Haan and comedian/actor Hasan Minhaj.

There are two styles of this sneaker, the one featured here is the Optic White-Molten Lava colorway. It has an Ortholite footbed for breathability and cushioning, a rubberized EVA outsole that was engineered to last, an inner leather heel lining, and it’s incredibly lightweight. If you’re in an office or on your feet a lot this is a perfect high-end sneaker that both looks great and will prevent your feet from getting sore.


Faherty Brand Fall and Winter Layers

Holiday Gift Ideas For Men 2020

The Faherty Brand Reversible Belmar Shirt ($148) was engineered to be perfectly reversible and two shirts in one. You cannot beat that. The doublecloth fabric has an airy homespun texture and it’s woven from organic cotton that’s buttery soft and light. This shirt comes in a few different styles but this one caught my eye.

Next is the Cashmere Blend Waffle Quarter Button ($348) which will likely be the single best sweater you ever purchase whether it’s for you or someone else. Don’t get distracted by the price, you get what you pay for, and this is one of the finest sweaters made. It’s a 70% Wool and 30% Cashmere blend that’s true to size and it’s made with waffle stitching to lock in warmth. This is a CEO sweater, a sweater for someone who just got a promotion or a raise. It’s truly excellent.


Dr. Martens 1460 Boots

No matter what decade you grew up in, there’s a good chance you recognize Dr. Martens 1460 Boots, as the look has been timeless ever since the first pair was released 60 years ago. From the grunge scene in New York to the hip nightlife of Los Angeles and beyond, the boots have stood the test of time — and anyone who’s ever owned a pair has a unique journey of their own.

Even with premium leather, the Dr. Martens 1460 Boots have a waterproof option, the 1460 Men’s Waterproof Lace Up Boots, meaning they don’t sacrifice substance for their classic style. The result is a durable boot that takes you pretty much anywhere, which is why, year after year, these are among the best boots for men.

Need something for your favorite pair of jeans or chinos? The Dr. Martens 1460 Boots are there for you. Looking for a work boot for your in-home workshop? The comfort and flexibility of the 1460 Boots have you covered. With a variety of different colors and styles, you can choose the pair that best fits your personality.


Tervis Tumblers Are A Truly Perfect Gift

holiday gift ideas Tervis Tumbler

Listen, I might be biased when it comes to Tervis Tumbler because I grew up in Sarasota, Florida and as a kid we took a field trip to the nearby Tervis factory. And Tervis Tumblers are quite literally a way of life here in Florida. You can walk into any home in this part of the country and find some Tervis Tumblers in the cabinets. A home isn’t a home without Tervis.

So why not refresh your Tervis Tumbler collection or gift someone some Tervis Tumblers this Christmas? My go-to engagement gift for people in my life is a customized Tervis with a picture of the couple along with their names and the date they got engaged. People love that personal touch. They’ve got everything from Baby Yoda to every team in the four major sports and I’m falling for their ‘Southern Touch’ collection. Whatever you’re looking for in a tumbler, they’ve got it and you can’t beat their prices compared to other double-walled vacuum-sealed tumblers on the market.


USA Palm Reversible Sherpas

USA Palm sherpas and flannels

These reversible shaggy sherpas are here to give you unmatched comfort on a Fall or Winter day. It’s like wrapping yourself in 50% cloud and 50% blanket. You cannot beat these.

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 Christmas shopping for someone else this year?

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.

10 Daily Essentials To Check Out

best everyday carry essentials

I recently branched out from my old sunglasses and check out these Kaenon Redding Polarized Sunglasses ($209) and I’m incredibly glad I did because I’ve been blown away both by the quality of the lenses and how light the sunglasses are overall. Maybe I got too used to my old fishing shades and didn’t notice the weight of them on my face but when I first put on Kaenon sunglasses I was shocked by how light they were. These shades come in six different colors with a minimal, clean, and classic design. You’re going to love those Kaenon SR-91® Polarized Lenses.

Innova car scan

The technology in cars these days is virtually unrecognizable from when I got my first Ford Mustang back in high school. Truly, we’re living in the future with features like auto-pilot available in certain cars. But we’re still being held back by a lack of transparency between that ‘check engine’ light on our dashboard and diagnosing an actual problem. That’s where INNOVA comes into play. Imagine being able to figure out the problem on the spot without the help of a mechanic. With INNOVA’s RepairSolutions2 App and their CarScan Mobile 1000, you now live in that world.

Ideal for a holiday gift this year, INNOVA is a leading supplier of test equipment and diagnostic reporting for car drivers, helping millions of people identify issues before they get too big — or too expensive.
