Angel's Envy

The Angel’s Envy 2020 Cask Strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Port Barrels is finally!!! out and this marks one of the best annual whiskey releases on the calendar.

This marks the first time that Angel’s Envy’s annual Cask Strength release is available in all 50 states but there are only 17,400 bottles available so you’ll need to get motivated to find one!

Now let’s get down to the nitty gritty. This is a 120.4-proof (60.2% ABV) release with a deep/rich amber color. On the nose you’ll get wafting notes of brown sugar, baking spices, oak, vanilla, leather, plum, and apricot. As it coats your mouth you’ll taste salted chocolate, orange peel, and cherry. The finish is said to be pleasant on the back of the tongue which sounds PERFECT for some whiskey and the citrus qualities shine through. Price will vary but it’s retailing for $199 in a lot of places so check it out!

Xbox Series X

Taco Bell Xbox Series X Bundle

Cass Anderson

The big day is almost here. The Xbox Series X will FINALLY be released to the public on November 10th. It’s like we’ve run a full marathon and the finish line is finally in sight. I’ll have a full review on the Xbox Series X within the next few days but if you haven’t pre-ordered yet it’s time to get on that with the ‘shop now’ button below!

At a quick glance, the Xbox Series X comes with a lightning-fast 1TB NVMe SSD which has the power to transform how we game by boosting load time up to 40x in some instances. It offers resolution up to 8K, has an HD Blu-Ray disk drive, a 12 teraflops 1.825GHz (locked) GPU, and a Eight-core 3.8GHz (3.6GHz with SMT) custom AMD 7nm CPU. If that sounds like gibberish to you, know that it can pump out 120FPS at 4K resolution. A lot of games were previously throttled at 30FPS and will now go to 60FPS so on top of all the sick new games that will look surreal your old games will likely look A LOT better as well. Stay tuned for more and hit that ‘shop now’ button below to preorder!

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.

High-Performance Gear From Lululemon

Lululemon Men's Christmas Gift Ideas

We have the License to Train Boxers ($38) which have added Lycra fibers for shape retention and stretch. They are breathable and sweat-wicking which makes them an ideal pair of boxers to travel in or workout in anytime. I had to include the Pace Breaker Short 7″ Linerless ($68) in the Dye Blue/Astro Blue. I’ve got two pairs of these in Black which is pretty boring but they’re still my favorite athletic shorts because I pair them with compression shorts for HIIT or long runs. They’re sweat-wicking, odor-reducing, have a brilliant no-bounce phone pocket that keeps your phone in place in your pocket so it isn’t clanging around as you jog, and they check every box you’re looking for in high-performance shorts.

The Metal Vent Tech SS 2.0 (5 Colors) ($78) is a world-class athletic shirt but you should expect nothing less than that from Lulu. It has spandex blended in for optimal shape retention when sweating, this way the shirt doesn’t change shape on you mid-workout. It has a four-way stretch that moves naturally with your body whether you’re running or lifting and it offers unrestricted mobility. We’ve got Lululemon At Ease Hoodie (2 Colors) ($148) which is a personal favorite of mine. I picked this hoodie up a few months ago and I’ve been wearing it on the couch quite literally every single day since. I have it in this Heathered Ancient Copper colorway but it also comes in a Light Grey style. It has a four-way stretch and a large Kangaroo pouch (with an internal zipper pocket) for tucking your hands or valuables. There’s a hidden ‘media pocket’ for your phone. This is truly the most comfortable and best-fitting hoodie I’ve ever owned so check this one out for sure (and thank me later!).

Worth Every Penny

everyday carry essentials worthwhile

The brand new Huckberry x Timex “Cola” Sport Watch – Limited Edition ($189) just dropped and this is a watch that will sell out very fast because it’s that damn good. This is a classic everyday style you can wear with just about anything in your wardrobe. This design was inspired by the legendary military-inspired designs of the 1970s and 1980s. Starting with a blank canvas, Huckberry drew on those styles from the 70s and 80s and went with a military-inspired ‘crosshair’ dial with polished and faceted 6, 9, and 12 markers. This watch is finished with a woven stainless steel bracelet and a functional aluminum timing bezel, the HB x Timex “Cola” Sport Watch is everything you could want in a watch.

Ragproper Flasks Leather and Silicone


With the holidays on our doorstep, it’s time to start thinking about ways to make it through this peculiar year with our sanity intact. For me, that will involve staying hydrated thanks to a trusty flask of my favorite brown spirit. I’m inviting you gentlemen to join me in living The Flask Life with these leather and silicone flasks from Ragproper. They’re perfect for you or you can pick one up and toss it in a stocking as a gift to a relative.

There are four to choose from, two are 100ml and two are 240ml. Two are silicon and two are leather (two are black and two are brown). So basically you can find the configuration of color + materials that you’re looking for and roll with that.

Interval Shorts From Ten Thousand Apparel

Ten Thousand Interval Shorts

Ten Thousand

I was recently turned onto Ten Thousand shorts. For a while now, I’ve worked out in Bird Dogs but it’s not even the slightest bit of an exaggeration to say these Ten Thousand shorts are exponentially better than what I’ve been wearing and I’m now 100% on board with these going forward. These shorts have a supportive but comfortable fit with the liner and a silky smooth body feel on the skin.

Ten Thousand has several styles but we’re looking at The Interval Short today which is ideal for HIIT, AMRAPS, and Metcons. I’ve been loving the Interval Short for Cycling + HIIT exercise. This short has an internal liner that keeps everything in place but you can also order them without the liner if you’d prefer.

The mission of Ten Thousand was to distill athletic apparel down to its core by employing committed athletes to create apparel for fellow athletes. These short are made from the lightest four-way stretch material around and they’ve been exhaustively field tested (by athletes, for athletes).


The New Age Of Hosting With Basil Hayden’s

Basil Hayden's New Age of Hosting

Cass Anderson

I was fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of the future of hosting with Basil Hayden’s this week. With everyone at home and unable to visit distilleries the shift in hosting has moved to our kitchens. That’s where Basil Hayden’s has swooped in with this incredible virtual option.

I was very impressed with what they rolled out. It was done through this website where you can RSVP for the events on 11/9, 11/12, 11/16, and 11/19 and participate in those for free. They use Vimeo for the live stream and there’s a box where people can ask the experts questions which the experts can see in real-time and respond to but it’s really a one-way portal other than that, not like Zoom where you’re both looking at each other the entire time. Check out my bundt cakes and my cocktails:

The Mastering Mixology experience will be held on 11/9 and hosted by the Cocktail Bandits based out of Charleston. On 11/12, Beehive’s Pat Ford will be hosting the Curating Cheese Plates & Whiskey Pairings experience. On 11/16, Baked NYC’s Matt Lewis will take you through the ‘Decadent Desserts’ experience where you can make those Bundt cakes above, and Hom Sweet Hom’s Lauren Hom will host the Hand Lettering experience on 11/19. You can RSVP to all of those (and participate for free) by clicking that button below!


The Kaikyo Distillery Whiskey and Gin

Kaikyo Distillery gin and whiskey

Kaikyo Distillery

I’ve been curious about the ins and outs of Japanese Whiskey for a few years, ever since I mistakenly ordered a $120 pour of whiskey at one of my favorite bars (The Brandy Library) when I meant to order a $25 pour. And I was lucky enough to do a guided virtual tasting with Japanese Whisky featuring Master Distiller and Blender Kimio Yonezawa of the Kaikyo Distillery last Friday which was made even more awesome by the fact that I was drinking at a normal time on a Friday night but he and his crew were tasting whiskey at 8 in the morning in Japan. That’s dedication to the craft right there.

We tasted two whiskeys and made a cocktail with the 135 East Hyogo Japanese Gin which instantly became my new favorite gin and I’m not exaggerating in the least bit when I say I’ve mixed that Gin at least 4 times since last week. The Hatozaki Japanese Whiskey is a blend of Malt Whiskey (at least 40%) and Grain Whiskey. What struck me the most of this whiskey was the light color. They don’t use any artificial coloring and the finished product is so light it almost struck me as an Irish Whiskey in the bottle but on the tongue I got coconut, almond, and a smooth sweet finish. The Hatozaki Small Batch Japanese Whiskey ($65) is a must-buy for anyone out there right now looking for holiday gifts for whiskey lovers. This is 100% malt whiskey aged in Mizunara, Sherry, and Bourbon oak barrels. The finished liquid has a borderline creamy vanilla character to it with some barrel char on the end. You can follow any of those links below to find these bottles on Drizly!
