Heaven’s Door Bootleg Series Vol. II
Heaven’s Door Spirits has released Heaven’s Door Bootleg Series Vol. II which is part of Bob Dylan’s exceptional collection of American whiskeys. I’d had a sample of this sitting on my home bar for a few weeks but only just had the chance to taste it last night and GOODNESS GRACIOUS did I love this. I got strong notes of cinnamon, banana, spice, and maple syrup and I think I know why…this 15-year-old cask strength Straight Bourbon is finished in 30-year-old Jamaican Pot Still Rum Casks and takes on some of those finishing qualities of a world-class rum.
The Bootleg Series Vol. 1 was a truly special 26-year-old whiskey that was finished in Japanese Mizunara oak casks and I thought it would be impossible to top but I found myself enjoying the Vol. II as much as any cask strength whiskey I’ve had this year. The catch is there are only 3,000 bottles available/for sale and they retail for $499 but you get what you pay for. Here’s what Heaven’s Door Master Blender Ryan Perry has to say about this expression:
After nearly two years of experimentation with different blends and barrel finishes, we have created an incredible whiskey for the Bootleg Series Vol II” Perry said. “I was intrigued by the idea of using Jamaican pot still rum casks to imbue the 15-year-old cask strength whiskey with a soft, round and lasting finish that is distinctive and complex.” After nearly a year in the rum barrels, the whiskey yielded “hints of maple syrup on the nose, notes of toasted coconut, holiday spice, and toasted oak on the finish,”
Each bottle comes in a handmade ceramic bottle that features Bob Dylan’s painting ‘Sunset, Monument Valley.‘ So you’re getting a world-class whiskey inside of an actual piece of Bob Dylan’s art. That’s hard to top. If there’s a Bob Dylan fan in your life then you might want to seriously consider purchasing this bottle before they’re gone.

Living It Up
I wanted to put this really cool opportunity from Baker’s on your radar today, the Baker’s Single Barrel Journey. As you already know, every bottle of Baker’s is now a single barrel expression. TO get in on this action you go to the ‘Baker’s Single Barrel Journey‘ landing page and put in the Barrel ID form the neck tag of your Baker’s Bourbon and you’ll be able to discover the journey of your whiskey from start to finish in a way that’s never been available until now.
You can see specifically where it was aged on the property, learn about the distinctive characteristics which made your bottle unique, and you can go ‘behind the barrel’ for a limited time and get a picture of YOU (yes, you) posting with Baker Beam in front of the rackhouse where your bottle came from and an exclusive tasting with Freddie Noe. Since everyone can’t visit the distillery this year they’ve found this incredibly immersive and unique way to humanize each bottle with the story behind it. They were kind enough to send me a preview of this experience and I had to share it with you gentlemen because it’s pretty darn cool and it will make an awesome holiday gift to yourself or someone in your life.

Philips Hue Play Light Bar
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.
Essentials For Your Holiday Wish List
The Lock Pick Training Kit ($30) which is just a fun tool that I think every guy should have. Lock picking isn’t a skill that’s required to get through life but it will certainly save you in a bind if you ever lock yourself out of simple locks and this $30 kit teaches some valuable skills. This makes for a great stocking stuffer too.

YETI Cocktail Cups For Christmas
I’ve been riding the YETI Rambler Lowball Mug train for a while now. I’ll primarily fill it up with some Bourbon when I leave the house for afternoon golf which doesn’t happen nearly as often lately as it used to but man, these YETI Ramblers are a great way to save some $$$ on the course and make use of the great whiskey I’ve got at home.
I wanted to put the 10oz YETI Rambler Wine Tumbler ($25) and 10oz Rambler Lowball Mug ($20) on everyone’s radar as we approach the holidays because they make for relatively inexpensive gifts that everyone in your life will appreciate AND they’re just as great in Winter as they are in Summer. The double-walled insulation means these tumblers keep your cold drinks ice cold and warm drinks hot. Likewise, they protect your hands. It’s already cold out there and you don’t want to be holding a frigid cup that’ll instantly drop your wine to 32F, the ramblers do a great job at insulating your spirits.

I recently branched out from my old sunglasses and check out these Kaenon Redding Polarized Sunglasses ($209) and I’m incredibly glad I did because I’ve been blown away both by the quality of the lenses and how light the sunglasses are overall. Maybe I got too used to my old fishing shades and didn’t notice the weight of them on my face but when I first put on Kaenon sunglasses I was shocked by how light they were. These shades come in six different colors with a minimal, clean, and classic design. You’re going to love those Kaenon SR-91® Polarized Lenses.

Life is funny sometimes.

This is exactly what I was looking for, 100% CBD pre-rolled joints I can chill out with.
