50 ‘Things We Want’ This Week: Bourbon, Holiday Gifts, Knives, And More

things we want this week gear guide for men

How are we doing today, gentlemen? With another week of hard work in the books it is now time to treat ourselves to some retail therapy. That’s why I spend hours upon hours each week putting together the ‘Things We Want‘ gear guide for men, so you can buy the best.

This way you have direct access to the hottest gear for men. If you’ve been reading the ‘Things We Want’ for yours then you’ll notice the new look design which is meant to fit more with the style of my daily Everyday Carry Essentials features.

After years of tweaking the format of this weekly gear guide, I’ve found that you bros tend to love the grid-style pictures the best so that’s why I’ve been trying to include more of these days. As always, if you know of a product that you think should be featured in my weekly Gear Guide then feel free to hit me up via email at cass@brobible.com.

Wahl’s Beard Products

Wahl Beard Wash — As a great man once told me, NEVER, EVER use regular old shampoo for your head on your beard. Beards are all about being properly moisturized. Wahl’s beard wash still cleans your beard with a proper lather without the irritants that dry out your beard over time.

Wahl Beard Softener — A truly legendary beard should be feathery soft – both for when you run your own fingers through it in quiet contemplation and for when that special someone snuggles up against it. Wahl’s beard softer keeps your whiskers from turning into thorny bristles. It’s lightly scented and a dollop goes far to keeping things soft. It also helps shape your beard when you run a comb through it.

Wahl Beard Oil — A crucial part of every beardsman’s grooming routine, Wahl’s beard oil is packed with essential oils that keep your beard extra hydrated. Apply a couple drops from the applicator into your hands, rub them together, and enjoy instant shine and softness.

Best of the Best: Single Malt Scotch Whiskey

Best Whiskey of 2019 All Types Bourbon Single Malt Rye Scotch Blends

The Craigellachie is in the heart of Speyside and this expression embodies everything I love about that region’s offerings. The 13-year-old is matured in a mixture of Bourbon and Sherry casks which helps build the full aromatic character and a nose of toffee and fudge.

The Laphroaig 10-year-old is a bottle I tell everyone to purchase. I always keep one on the shelf because to me, Laphroaig is the perfect embodiment of single malt. If that sounds over-the-top it’s because I’ve fallen in love with this spirit throughout the years after constantly being impressed by blind taste tests of this 10-year-old against other single malts.

The Aberfeldy 12-Year-Old is distilled and bottled in the Central Highlands of Scotland. Aberfeldy has won its fair share of gold medals throughout the years and the 12-year-old has notes of honesy, spice, and citrus.

Some Of My Favorite Bourbons

Best Whiskey of 2019 All Types Bourbon Single Malt Rye Scotch Blends

First up here we see the Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon, an expression that was awarded a score of 95 points from Distiller. It is matured in No. 4 “alligator” char American White Oak barrels and has rich notes of vanilla and toffee.

Blanton’s Single Barrel is an expression that was once reserved for visiting dignitaries and it has remained one of the finest bourbons on the planet for generations. The third is the George Dickel ‘Bottled in Bond’, a newer release from that distillery. This 100-proof spirit is affordable ($36). It is a 13-year-old whiskey with an impressive 95 out of 100 score and it was a named a ‘best buy’ by Wine Enthusiast.
