Redemption Whiskey Barrel Proof Selections

Redemption Whiskey Barrel Proof Selections

Cass Anderson

I was lucky enough to get my hands on Redemption Whiskey’s latest 9 and 10-Year-Old Barrel Proof Selections and dudes, run don’t walk to pick these up. This has been a particularly good year for Rye Whiskey releases and their Barrel Proof Rye ($99) exceeded my expectations by far. It’s a 95% Rye / 5% Malted Barley expression that clocks in at 116.2 proof and is aged for 10 years. My first thought when tasting this expression was the sweet balance of banana and caramel in Banana’s Fosters dessert.

The Redemption Barrel Proof High Rye Bourbon has a ‘spicy rye backbone’ of 60% corn, 36% rye, and 4% malted barley. This expression is also aged 10 years and clocks in at 114.4 proof with a dark gold color and an aroma of rich vanilla. On the tongue, you’ll find strong notes of toffee and honey.

The third bottle is the Redemption Barrel Proof Bourbon which is a blend of 75% Corn, 21% Rye, and 4% Malted Barley which is aged for 9 years and comes together at 105.7 proof. I sipped this one straight out of the bottle without ice or water and it was a perfect Turkey Day appetizer with an aroma of Madagascan Vanilla Bean, Coffee, and Caramel. It has a little smokey bacon on the tongue with a smooth finish.

Just head on over to their website to find out where you can track down each of these award-winning whiskeys for yourself!

NVIDIA is a household name if you’re a PC gamer. With that said, maybe you are Christmas shopping for someone else this year?

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.

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.

Ideal for a holiday gift this year, 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.

TRUFF’s New Black Truffle-Infused Pasta Sauces

TRUFF pasta sauce

TRUFF just debuted two pasta sauces, a Black Truffle Pomodoro Sauce and a Black Truffle Arrabiatta Sauce. If you’re reading this article then it’s likely because you love truffles or you’re buying a gift for someone who loves truffles and I’m here to tell you these TRUFF Pasta Sauces are the REAL DEAL.

The thing about fresh truffles is they are hard to find, very rare, and thus quite expensive. I bought some fresh black and white truffles for Christmas (two years ago) from a friend who imports them into Charleston and distributes to restaurants and it was the most I’d spent on Christmas in my life. That’s why TRUFF Pasta Sauce is such a damn good value. You can get a 2-pack of the Black Truffle Pomodoro, Black Truffle Arrabbiata, or a 2-Pack Combo for just $29.99.

Philips Hue Play Light Bar

Philips Hue Play Light Bars

Cass Anderson

So, here’s where we’re at: I’m now a Philips Hue stan and I’m having trouble remembering what my TV life was like before I got the Play Light Bar Double Pack. I’ve known about Philips Hue for years but hadn’t tested the waters yet. My home theater came with strip lighting already installed. But then I got the Play Light Bar Double Pack and became an instant believer in how awesome this is.

For starters, it was incredibly easy to install. I was up and running within minutes. The idea of controlling lights on an app didn’t appeal to me much until I realized how extensive the functionality was. As I was scrolling through Hue Labs on the app I found a setting that syncs up my TV’s lights with my team’s colors on game day. Then there was a Halloween setting that made the lights bounce around all spooky-like. You can set schedules so the lights gradually and softly come up in the morning as you wake up and come on in the evenings. They have A TON of smart home lighting but I’ve started with these and I legitimately plan on buying these for my family this Christmas because I’m so impressed. Just give it a look for yourself and you’ll soon come to see the light as well.


Dr. Martens 1460 Boots

No matter what decade you grew up in, there’s a good chance you recognize Dr. Martens 1460 Boots, as the look has been timeless ever since the first pair was released 60 years ago. From the grunge scene in New York to the hip nightlife of Los Angeles and beyond, the boots have stood the test of time — and anyone who’s ever owned a pair has a unique journey of their own.

Even with premium leather, the Dr. Martens 1460 Boots have a waterproof option, the 1460 Men’s Waterproof Lace Up Boots, meaning they don’t sacrifice substance for their classic style. The result is a durable boot that takes you pretty much anywhere, which is why, year after year, these are among the best boots for men.

Need something for your favorite pair of jeans or chinos? The Dr. Martens 1460 Boots are there for you. Looking for a work boot for your in-home workshop? The comfort and flexibility of the 1460 Boots have you covered. With a variety of different colors and styles, you can choose the pair that best fits your personality.
