New WhistlePig FarmStock ‘Beyond Bonded’ Rye and Bourbon
New WhistlePig FarmStock Beyond Bonded Bourbon and Beyond Bonded Rye are back for 2022. These expressions were named ‘FarmStock’ after the grain-to-glass and farm-to-bottle approach taken in Shoreham, Vermont. For these FarmStock releases, WhistlePig used water from their well, and the Rye and Bourbon were aged in Vermont Estate Oak casks from woods surrounding the farm.
The Beyond Bonded name comes from WhistlePig going above and beyond the Bottled-in-Bond standards created by Colonel E.H. Taylor, that revolutionized the American bourbon industry. In addition to meeting the Bottled-in-Bond standards, WhistlePig’s Beyond Bonded also includes:
— 100% WhistlePig Farm whiskey (the product of one distilling season from one distillery)
— Handcrafted in the toughest farming conditions in the country
— Aged in a federally bonded warehouse for at least 4 years and up to 5 years, 2 months, 2 weeks and 2 days
— Single Barrel
— Each bottle presented with 30 unique facts specific to the grain-to-glass journey of its individual barrel
If you are interested in picking up a bottle, just hit that ‘shop now’ button below to visit WhistlePig’s website and learn where you will be able to purchase their FarmStoke Beyond Bonded Bourbon and Rye releases!
Salt Life Has The Best Polarized Sunglasses For Fishing
Salt Life is mostly known for its performance fishing apparel. Everything from the brand’s long-sleeve shirts to its short-sleeve button-ups are lightweight and moisture-wicking. What you might not know is Salt Life also churns out some of the best sunglasses for fishing.
Colors like brown, copper, amber, and blue are ideal for further reducing glare helping you to spot the fish. Match your lenses to the level of sunlight and the color of water and you’re guaranteed to catch more fish, assuming you are using the right equipment.
This isn’t just me blowing smoke, this is how serious fishing works. You put yourself in the best position to catch more fish and you will and that starts with having the right Salt Life fishing sunglasses to actually see what’s underneath the surface.

New Chicken Cock Island Rooster Kentucky Straight Rye
Famous since 1856, Chicken Cock out of Bardstown, Kentucky just dropped their new Island Rooster Kentucky Straight Rye which you can pick up (right now) on ReserveBar by following that ‘shop now’ button below.

The #1 Travel Shorts Of 2022
Honestly, I hate talking about ‘travel shorts’ because it sounds like a phrase that was made up in a marketing room by people who couldn’t figure out how to sell their shorts. Because to me, ‘travel shorts’ have the same characteristics as the shorts I wear every day all Spring and Summer regardless of whether or not travel is involved.
I’m looking for everything that the Proof Nomad Shorts is offering. The two-way stretch Japanese Toray twill breathes great for long trips and they have a water-resistant DWR coating to keep them dry and repel stains and water. They have a covert zip pocket to keep valuables safe, zipped up, and hidden if you are in unknown territory. And the fabric has a perfect handfeel or skinfeel that’s similar to a midweight chino.

This T-Shirt’s Been Field-Tested Across The Planet
Doing laundry is one of my least favorite tasks on the planet. Actually, that’s a lie. I don’t mind throwing my clothes in the washing machine at all. It’s the act of having to fold/hang those clothes and put them away that drives me insane.
That’s why the 72-Hour Merino Tee from Proof is so f’n majestic. It’s been designed so you can wear it under rigorous conditions for 72 hours without the shirt showing any signs of odor, stretch, or wear.
The Proof 72-Hour Merino Tee is back in stock in all colors and it’s now available in two new colorways. It’s made using 16.5 micron Merino wool that’s sourced from New Zealand and has nylon reinforcement throughout. This shirt’s machine washable, can be worn for days, is perfect for traveling and everyday use, and the Merino wool is temperature regulating!
