Barrell Bourbon Batch #27
I recently got my hands on these exquisite bottles of Barrell Bourbon, their most recent Barrell Bourbon Batch #27 and the Barrell Dovetail. I’ll cover the Dovetail at some point next week but today I wanted to discuss how spectacular the Barrell Bourbon Batch #27 is. This is a blended cask strength bourbon that’s listed at 5-years-old but the oldest bourbon in the blend is 15-years-od. It clocks in at 115.7 proof but has the smoothness of a bourbon 10 to 15 points below that number. The bourbons in this blend come from Kentucky, Tennessee, and Indiana and it has a suggested retail price of $88. You can look for it here on Drizly or on the Barrell Bourbon website.
Batch #27 comes from 5, 6, 8, 9, 13, and 15-year-old barrels. The 5-year-old barrel is a spice-heavy bourbon from Tennesse, the 6-year-old is a fruit-laden barrel from Indiana. The 9-year-old is a high rye addition for spice and the 13 and 15-year-old barrels pack in strong wood depth. The other 5 and the 8-year-old wheated bourbon barrel brings in a new level of complexity by smoothing out the blend. It has strong notes of coffee, pie, red fruit, apricot, grapes, and more on the nose. The palate is syrupy rich with hints of cherry and caramel. The finish is where you’ll find some of the oak and baking spices. This is a bourbon that I’d happily pay 1.5 to 2x the sticker tag for because it’s that good and one that could be a perfect Father’s Day gift this year.
Altra Lone Peak 5 Trail Running Shoe
It might not seem like it yet, but the weather is on the verge of turning and trail running season is nearly upon us. I recently picked these up and as someone with wide feet these are a godsend. They’re built wider than most to give you feet to move and the responsive Altra EGO™ foam midsole has more cushioning than I could’ve ever imagined. Seriously, I almost felt like my foot was sinking down a fraction of an inch when I first started jogging in them but my feet feel better than ever.
The grippy MaxTrac™ outsole is built to last approximately 500 kilometers (310 miles) of rugged use on the trails. They hold up on wet conditions and slippery surfaces just as well as dry and flat ground. The men’s shoes come in six different colorways for you to choose from and you can hit that ‘shop now’ button below to pick these up on Amazon.
Gear For Enjoying Life More Each Day
First up today is the Blue Run 13-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey [$169] which I just sampled last weekend and it is truly divine. This 13-year-old bourbon is the brainchild of Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Famer and former Four Roses master distiller Jim Rutledge who teamed up with Facebook’s first director-level employee and a Nike veteran to combine bourbon expertise with impeccable design.
I’ll be 100% honest, given the names attached I slightly expected this to not blow me away but this Blue Run 13-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is one of the best bourbons I’ve sampled in the past calendar year. It was almost as if I was holding back from taking sips because I wanted it to last forever. This 113-proof bourbon carries notes of vanilla and roasted nuts and has a smooth palate of dried fruit, brown butter, and intense baking spices. What struck me the most about this is how the high 113-proof was as smooth as a bourbon that’s 90-95 proof. It didn’t viciously attack my tastebuds like some barrel proof bourbons and instead was a truly enjoyable tasting experience from start to finish. So go check it out!

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 in the market for a new laptop for someone else this year or just looking to upgrade?
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. Check ’em out at that ‘shop now’ button below!
Ready-To-Go Cocktail Mixers
Making skilled and flavorful cocktails can take a long time and require an inordinate amount of work. Pleasing your guests with the best drinks around feels nice but spending 15 minutes making everyone drinks while you’re not drinking can also be pretty lame. But there’s a shortcut. You can pick up Gent’s Original Cocktail Mixes which are delicious ready-to-go cocktail mixes so all you’ll need to do is add the booze and garnish. These Gent’s Original Cocktail Mixes ($12) go way beyond what you’re used to finding on the shelves. I’ve included four options for you guys to pick from.

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 you 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!).

Rugged Customizable Up To 25% OFF Today
It’s kind of funny to me that there is this backpack brand out there with such a cult following but avid outdoorsmen and nature photographers swear by these WANDRD backpacks. What sets WANDRD backpacks apart from the competition is how customizable they are. This is the primary reason nature photographers are so attracted to these backpacks because they can reconfigure them in a ton of different ways to hold all of their gear and likewise it’s what makes them so popular with hikers, campers, rangers, and guides.
Another MASSIVE selling point of these bags is they’re ‘damn near bombproof’ in construction. You can pretty much drop it off the side of a cliff and know that it will be intact when you make it back down the mountain. They are currently running a sale on Huckberry where you can save up to 25% for a limited time on their daypack ($175, usually $219), 31-liter PRVKE ($153, usually $204), and the HEXAD Access Duffel – 45L bag ($220, usually $259).
