Lagavulin 16-Year Whisky + Nick Offerman Puzzle

Lagavulin Nick Offerman Puzzle

Cass Anderson


I bet 99.99% of you didn’t know that January 29th is National Puzzle Day. If anyone out there actually knew this then big ups to you. Anyway, I’m throwing down on this Nick Offerman x Lagavulin puzzle for NPD this year because I haven’t actually completed a puzzle in several years and I’m extremely overdue. My spirit of choice will be the 16-year Lagavulin which you can purchase on Drizly and have shipped straight to your doorstep. It’s got a full nose and dry body that hits you with cascading layers of vanilla, tobacco, and sherry spice. It truly is a magnificent spirit.

I interviewed Nick Offerman around this time last year (mid-February) and we discussed how he’d spend his perfect St. Patrick’s Day. You can check out my interview with him here.

Arrrrrrrdbeg!

Arrrrrrrdbeg whiskey

Ardbeg


Ardbeg’s distillery manager Mickey Heads (3x IWC ‘Distillery of the Year’ award winner) is retiring after 13 years of running the distillery and they’re releasing a limited-edition ‘Arrrrrrrdbeg!’ ($179) in his honor. It is matured in ex-rye casks and has a spicy punch that ignites waves of kiwi, melon, smoked toffee, and sourdough biscuits. It wafts notes of banana, pear, rye bread, pastry and sherbert on the notes and is bottled at 51.8% ABV which makes it an ideal after-dinner drink for me.

It’s hitting the market on February 1st and Arrrrrrrdbeg! will be the distillery’s very first whisky wholly matured in ex-rye casks. The bottle’s art depicts distiller Mickey as a salty pirate and was done by Brazilian artist Butcher Billy. This will be exclusively available to Ardbeg Committee members which you can learn about by hitting that ‘shop now’ button below!

The Draft Top Drinking Tool

The Draft Top

The Draft Top


Drinking beer out of a pint glass is great and all but so is drinking straight out of the can. You shouldn’t have to choose one or the other and thanks to this ingenious drinking device you no longer have to choose. Did you know you actually taste more of your beer when you’re able to detect more of the smells when drinking it out of a glass? Of course, you did.

The Draft Top safely turns your beer can into a beer glass. It is a patented bar tool that enables you to safely take the top off your beer cans and smooth over the edge. My favorite part about The Draft Top is it’s only $25. I’d think that a patented device like this would be pricey since there’s no competition and it’s a pretty cool tool but they have it very appropriately priced.

These are featured in ascending order of price. The Wellen Natural Wash Check Shirt ($98) comes in three colors. It’s cut from soft organic cotton that’s washed for softness and a vintage fade. The Flint and Tinder American Made Flannel ($98) comes in six colors. It is made in Los Angeles and this classic American print never goes out of style.

A lot of gentlemen see Barbour and gravitate straight towards their Green Waxed/Field jackets but the Barbour Weldon Wax Jacket ($400) in Waxed Brown looks incredible and can withstand anything you throw at it. Barbour has been making the best waxed field jackets in the world for over 125 years and perfecting their designs and materials along the way.

2021 everyday carry essentials

I’ve been soaking up this 3-part ‘Bourbon Reflection’ IGTV video series from Knob Creek and needed to share it with you gentlemen. If you’re at all stressed and need to get your head right then check it out right now. It focuses on the sacrifice and hard work that it’s taken to get through the recent past and each ‘reflection’ features cameos from 7th Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe. For the whiskey I’ve chosen the Knob Creek 15-Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey ($115+) which you can search for on Drizly to see if it’s available in your area. 15 is the magical year when it comes to whiskey. You knew that already. And this expression (77% Corn, 13% Rye, 10% Malted Barley mashbill) is full of oak on the nose and a palate of tobacco, caramel, raisin, and thick with brown sugar.

Wipebook Pro+ Mini Whiteboard Notebook

Wipebook Pro + wipeable notebook

wipebook


This one’s a game-changer, my dudes. The Wipebook Pro + is something I’ve always needed but didn’t know exactly what it was I needed until I came across this product. It’s essentially a mini whiteboard that’s the size of a notebook. So a portable and reusable whiteboard and the possibilities to use this are endless.

I’d expect the Wipebook Pro + to be an expensive product. On the contrary, it’s only $45 at Huckberry and it has a faux black leather binding. A digital tablet can be a great high-end/expensive option for sketching up ideas and brainstorming sessions but this cannot be topped at the $45 price point.

10 Must-Haves For Guys

2021 upgraded everyday carry gear

It’s hard to overstate how much I’ve worn the Lululemon At Ease Hoodie ($148) in the past year. I love this hoodie as much as anything I’ve ever owned. It strikes a perfect balance between stretch, warmth, and comfort. Lululemon says it was designed ‘to move with you’ and it’s hard to describe that without putting it on but the four-way stretch fabric never holds you back and it just feels great in a range of weather. I wear it from like 40 to 70 degrees out. It also comes in a few different colors to shop from.

The Relwen Windzip Jacket ($258) is an exclusive product you can only purchase at Huckberry. It has a breathable yet robust water-resistant exterior that can be worn in brutal weather. You can layer underneath for extremely cold conditions but the dense 60-gram down-alternative filling will otherwise keep you warm. This price point is a lot but this really is a world-class jacket that can be worn everywhere from Florida to Colorado, and the Alps to Iceland.
