Booker’s Bourbon ‘Donohoe Batch’ — First Batch Of 2021
With the first Booker’s Bourbon Batch release of 2021, ‘Donohoe Batch’, I was lucky enough to connect with the man who this batch is named for along with Fred and Freddie Noe to hear the story of how Booker’s Bourbon came to exist on shelves across America. I wrote up the full story on how Booker’s Bourbon came to exist can you can read all about it in that article. In the meantime, the first Booker’s Bourbon batch release is out and here are Master Distiller Fred Noe’s Notes on ‘Donohoe Batch’:
The batch is made up of barrels from two production dates that were aged in six different rackhouse locations. The breakdown of barrel storage for Booker’s ‘Donohoe Batch’ is as follows:
* 16% came from the 2nd floor of 9-story warehouse H
* 8% came from the 6th floor of 9-story warehouse H
* 4% came from the 6th floor of the 7-story warehouse L
* 16% came from the 4th floor of 7-story warehouse X
* 9% came from the 5th floor of 7-story warehouse X
* 47% came from the 5th floor of 7-story warehouse Z
Color: “medium amber that reflects the length of time spent in the white oak barrels
Aroma: “has vanilla and some baking spike that makes you want to experience the tast of this batch
Taste: “full-bodied and opens in the mouth, with a finish that is pleasant and fulfilling especially in these cold months”
This is my favorite batch release in years. The minimum age is 6 years, 11 months, 4 days and it clocks in at 125.3 proof but I found it drank at closer to 105-110 proof because it was so smooth. It’s available now in limited quantities with a suggested price of $89.99 so be on the lookout!

Limited-Edition Danner Logger 917 Boots
If you’re going to spend a decent amount of a world-class pair of boots that you plan on having for years to come then you should be looking for craftsmanship and versatility, the two pillars of this collaboration between Portland-based Danner Boots and Huckberry. The Huckberry x Danner Logger 917 Boots ($230) is second to none, truly.
Every feature and detail of the Danner Logger 917 Boots was carefully considered and the finished product is a pair of boots that’s just at home on the trails and climbing mountains as it is on the streets back in the city. You can wear these with jeans to work or camping and you can stylishly pair them with chinos in the office.
Old Forester — The 117 Series
— Old Forester (@oldforester) March 23, 2021
The Old Forester Distillery announced The 117 Series this week, a new limited expression lineup. The first expression hit shelves on Wednesday and you’ll be able to find the ‘High Angels’ Share’ if you look closely. They’re calling this a “multidimensional” bourbon that’s rich and “layered with dark flavor notes, dried fruits, and unexpected herbaceous qualities” which sounds right up my alley. I have a sample that I’ve been waiting to crack open until today when the clock strikes 5pm.
The High Angels’ Share 117 Series release has a raw garnet color and it will be available for purchase at Old Forester Distilling Co. as well as in limited quantities at select Kentucky retailers with a suggested price of $49.99. One of the things that makes The 117 Series so interesting is it’s directed by Old Forester Master Taster Jackie Zykan and the label will bear her name, marking the first time in Old Forester’s 150-year history that a bottle will feature a woman’s signature. Think about it like this: do you think a brand is going to wait 150 years to do something like this and then not put out one of the most exquisite bourbons ever released at that price point? I have extremely high hopes for this one and you should too!

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.

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.

Jaybird Vista Earthproof Wireless Headphones On Sale
What is up, my dudes? I wrote about these headphones a few weeks ago but I had to put this sale on your radar again today because you can save $31 or 15% on the same wireless headphones I use every single day while I’m out running or on the Peloton. I also travel with these even though it’s been a hot minute since I’ve gone anywhere. There are multiple sizes of the ear inserts, they’re indestructible, and the sound quality is world-class. I’ve had the Jaybird Vista Earthproof Wireless Headphones for about two years now, maybe longer, I can’t really keep track of time with how strange the past year has been, but these are the only wireless earbuds I’ll use.

Camping Air Mattress For Your SUV
The Luno Car Camping Air Mattress comes in four sizes to fit the size and shape of your SUV and it turns the back into a comfortable bed with durable 300-denier Oxford fabric and dual-sided firmness. It also includes base extenders to work around the footwells and give you an extra 12 inches of space to sleep.
An often miserable mistake I make on road trips is not knowing when to stop and driving too long/too late and then suddenly facing my body crashing on me. The Luno Car Camping Air Mattress ($279 on Huckberry) inflates in under two minutes with the included electric pump. And then once it’s deflated in the morning it also packs down so small you can tuck it anywhere in the full SUV and it won’t take up space.
Kick Your Spring Into High Gear
I’ve been loving Mack Weldon’s tees, pants, jackets, and underwear for years. I wanted to turn you gents onto the Mack Weldon Pima V-Neck T-Shirt [$32] which is available in 17 different colors! This insanely soft t-shirt is so nice you can confidently wear it underneath a blazer or you can rock it on its own. The 100% pima cotton is what sets this shirt apart from the best.
You can pair that shirt with the Vuori Ponto Shorts [$74]. I don’t actually own these but I own the Vuori Ponto Pants and whenever anyone asks me what the best joggers are I immediately tell them those because the fabric is on another planet it’s so nice and these shorts are from the same line so I know they’ll live up to the absolute perfection of the pants. They come in five colors, have a four-way stretch, are quick-drying and moisture-wicking, and the same uniquely engineered soft fabric of the pants.

The Draft Top Tool
For only $25, you can pick up The Draft Top tool and completely transform your home bar or your next camping trip. The long and short of it is The Draft Top allows you to turn any aluminum can into a usable (and reusable) cup. This means you can pop the top off of your favorite beer cans anytime and turn them into cups you can keep drinking beer out of anywhere, anytime, or use them as cocktail glasses or water cups.
The best part, for me, is the price. The Draft Top is only $25. At that price, it’s a perfect gift because you’re not spending too much or too little. It’s also unique and thoughtful as a gift option. Beyond that, you can tuck it in your camping bag, truck, or home bar and use it at tailgates, campfires, and parties.
