Cascade Moon Edition No. 2 Whisky
I’m quite excited to start this year by sharing a world-class whisky with you gentlemen, the Cascade Moon Edition No. 2 Whisky. As the name implies, this is the second release from George A. Dickel & Co’s Cascade Moon Whisky series. This one pays homage to Dickel’s 150-year history of crafting fine whisky in some really interesting ways. You’ll immediately notice the bottle looks different than what you’re used to seeing. The unique sand blasted ceramic bottles are sourced from one of the only makers in the world and the labels are hand printed using a 130-year-old press. But you’re probably interested on what’s inside.
This small-batch blend was sourced from the first barrels of TN Whisky after the Dickel distillery returned from shutdown back in 2003. The small-batch blend sourced less than 20 total barrels with whisky aged at least 16 years. It carries notes of leather, vanilla, and oak. I got some baking spice and orange zest on the back end while I had my wife take a whiff and she found a lot of heavy oak on the nose.
So what’s the catch? Well, it’ll be hard to find. Cascade Moon Edition No. 2 will be available in limited quantities in Tennesse, California, and Texas and will be priced at $249.99 if you can find it. I’ve had a chance to sample this whisky and I’ll say that it really exceeded my expectations. The 90-proof 16+ year old liquid is so smooth that sipping it neat is easy and pleasurable, no rocks needed.

INNOVA Is PERFECT For Car Junkies
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.
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. And with the RepairSolutions2 App and CarScan Mobile 1000, you can quickly navigate any issues with your car from the touch of your mobile phone, making sure it runs smoothly.
6 of 2021’s Best Vests For Men
The Filson Ultralight Vest ($125) which is part of an Alaskan-inspired collection from Filson. This vest can be worn year-round and is filled with 60g PrimaLoft® Gold insulation that offers a supreme warmth-to-weight ratio. The Howler Brothers Merlin Vest ($135) in a ‘Blackout’ colorway has a water-resistant yet breathable shell and it’s filled with thermally efficient Primaloft® Gold insulation. The Alex Mill Reversible Utility Vest in Sherpa ($155) features that shaggy soft sherpa look and feel that every guy needs in his closet. These really are incredible.
As we move up in price we get to the Merino Wool Rittervest by Ritter ($249) which is an adaptable blend of alpaca fleece and merino wool that helps maintain a comfortable body temperature. This vest is made in Peru, has welted hand pockets, interior storage for wallet, keys, pens, phone, and more. This truly is one of the softest vests you can buy in 2021. The last one is the Amundsen Groomer Vest. Amundsen Outdoor Sports was created taking inspiration from Jørgen Amundsen, the first explorer to reach the South Pole in 1911 and he did so wearing Inuit furs. Flash forward to the present day and this is one of the finest luxury vests on the planet. It is stuffed with recycled down with a 750 fill power, the contrasting corduroy at the yoke adds style and protection from heavy wear, the collar’s lined with wool fleece for extra warmth, and a lot more incredible features.

Limited-Edition Coors Banquet Collection
Our good friends at Huckberry kicked off the new year by dropping an extremely limited-edition collection of clothing with Coors Banquet Beer that has me wanting to immediately spend all of those Christmas checks from my aunts and uncles. Don’t hate, those $25 checks add up when you’ve got a huge family.
This awesome throwback collection of Coors Banquet gear includes a trucker jacket, some t-shirts, these corduroy hats I’m in love with, some leather coasters, a cooler, and vintage-style koozies. The designs evoke 60’s and 70’s style Colorado fashion where apparel was made to last forever AND look good. These days it seems like most gear is one or the other.
The Golden Hour Series from Coors x Huckberry launched on Sunday, January 3rd and they’d been working behind the scenes way ahead of the launch with some individuals who embody the ethos of the brands. With The Golden Hour Series, they’ll be telling the stories of individuals ‘who work tirelessly to make adventure more accessible to all’ and it starts with Gregg Boydston, a professional photographer, firefighter, and former wildfire Hotshot.

Q Timex Reissue Digital LCA Watch
The latest vintage-style reissue from Timex is straight-up phenomenal. The Q Timex Reissue Digital LCA is a digital reissue from the late 80s that uses a liquid crystal analog recreated from the original. This watch comes in Gold or Silver and only retails for $149 which is an absolute steal at that price.
I think what stands out the most about this watch is how glaringly 80s it is. You look at this wristwatch and it embodies the style from that time so well. But the Q Timex Reissue Digital LCA comes with a full technological overhaul while staying true to the original’s style and this means you can rock it every day without worrying about it dying on you.
Stylish and Retro Gear
First up in this everyday carry collection is the Q Timex Reissue Digital LCA Watch ($149) which is a glorious digital watch reissued from the late ‘80s. The liquid crystal analog display is recreated from the original model and it features a unique digital/analog display and uses a single-bulb backlight for a truly retro vibe. This really is a throwback watch that you can rock every single day.
