Booker’s Bourbon ‘Blue Knights Batch’ — The 2nd Batch Of 2017
Booker’s Bourbon just released their second batch of the year, the Blue Knights Batch. This exquisite bourbon pays homage to the Blue Knights, a motorcycle club founded by active and retired law enforcement officers. I cracked open a bottle of the Blue Knights Batch from Bookers on National Bourbon Day earlier this week and I can tell you bros that this is exquisite, and it might be my favorite release from Booker’s yet.
Booker’s Blue Knights Batch has been aged 6 years, 3 months and 6 days. It clocks in at 127.4 proof. There are notes of wood and vanilla on the nose due to aging in White Oak barrels. The suggested retail price of the Booker’s ‘Blue Knights Batch’ is $69.99-$74.99, and it’s well worth it. This is the second of four batches that will be released this year by 7th Generation Master Distiller Booker Noe, Jim Beam’s grandson.

Vintage Hollywood-Style $83 Million Private Jet
This absolutely gorgeous private jet is selling for $83 million, and from nose to tail, it invokes the majesty and wonder of classic Hollywood. Over on Business Insider (link below) they have an entire photo set of this crazy plane built by Brazilian aviation company Embraer. The ‘Hollywood Airship’ is supposed to invoke 1930’s Hollywood, and it most certainly does that. Follow that link below for more photographs!
I recently picked up the Mophie wireless charging case + base and have been testing it out all week. My old leather iPhone case got wet and fell apart, so I knew it was time for an upgrade. The Mophie Charge Force case + base allows you to wireless charge your phone on the go. It acts similar to an external battery in the sense that you fully charge up the base (or leave it plugged in so it’s always fully charged). The base itself is about the size of an Altoids container. The case and base are magnetized, so when you place the Charge Force case on the base it begins to charge, and it works remarkably well. I cannot sing the praises enough here, so I figured I’d pass along news of this genius invention to you bros. For more info and to purchase your own today you can follow the link below (case + base sold separately).
