Things We Want This Week: Single Malt, Knives, Grilling Equipment And More! (Gifts Bros Actually Want)
In this week’s ‘Things We Want’ gear guide for bros we’ve got all sorts of awesome goodies, including but not limited to: tactical gear, cigar humidors, booze accessories, grooming advice, single malt, and more. As I try to do each week, this edition of the ‘Things We Want — A Gear Guide For Bros’ covers the entire spectrum of gear for bros who like to get out into the world, get their boots a little dirty, and see what’s happening down by the water.
Also, 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 dot com. And for those of you looking to have us test out products to be featured here you can contact me via that email for our mailing address.
I recently got my hands on a bottle of the Laphroaig Lore, a 96-proof single malt that evokes visions of ‘bonfires on the beach’ with every sip. I’m not usually the type of person to get sappy over a spirit, but this is easily one of the best tasting single malts I’ve had in years. It’s not cheap though, a 750ml bottle will set you back $124.99, but it’s WELL WORTH IT. Here are the tasting notes:
COLOR: Deep mahogany
NOSE: Rich and smoky with seaside minerals and a hint of ash and bitter chocolate drops. Vanilla follows with oily unroasted chestnuts and a hint of fudge with a malty sweetness. A drop of water adds a clotted cream note with fruit appearing in the form of unripe citrus in a flan glaze
TASTE: Richly peaty with a spicy chili bite
FINISH: Short, dry finish and a long, sweet aftertaste
PROOF:96 (ABV: 48%)

Go ahead and let everyone know where you stand in this year’s election by picking up a pair of The Reagans, The Kennedys, or The Washingtons from Rufus & Royce. With these shorts you’re getting 240 years of patriotism packed into one magnificent pair of thigh warmers, though they won’t be doing too much warming with the 8-inch inseam (anything longer than 8-inches is just not right). This company is just a couple of bros trying to connect with their audience, and I think they’ve succeeded in that goal with their immaculate line of shorts and hats. Check ’em out by following the link below!
I featured this item yesterday in my 2016 Father’s Day Gift Guide and wanted to bring it back to the attention of you bros, because this is one badass little traveling humidor.

This is a blade that I’m pretty stoked to share with all of you bros because it’s one that I’ve owned, used, and trusted for quite some time. The Baghdad Box Cutter is first and foremost a knife, but on a day to day basis this multi-use blade will come in handy in all sorts of tasks. It’s the PERFECT size for an EDC (everyday carry) blade, and if you’re the type of bro who likes to carry a belt sheath then you can do that with this blade because it’s not a folding knife. Now let’s check out the goods:

Our very own Chris Illuminati covered this handy little gadget earlier in the week and he spoke so effusively about it I had to get one for myself. Here’s what Chris had to say:
The patented steak thermometer uses an innovative three-light system to tell you when a steak is prepared just how you like it.
Simply turn on the thermometer with the activator, then insert into your steak. SteakChamp flashes different colors to let you know when your steak is about to be cooked medium rare, medium, or medium well. Then, when it starts to flash in double-time, the steak is ready to be removed from the heat. Boom. No more guesswork, no need to read the temperature on a meat thermometer, no more raw or charred meat.

You know one thing I love so much about the BroBible audience is that I don’t have to explain/justify how great Yeti products are, and how they’re worth the money. If you go over to one of the other male focused websites you’re going to find some cheap asses who think that the Yeti Tumblers are too expensive, and not worth the money. Those people are idiots. These are some of the finest products every made and they make drinking a goddamn pleasure. If you don’t own one yet you need to rectify that right now.

This might appear to be a bit out of place on this list because it’s something you see on the regular when shopping, but I recently started using the Dove Men Sculpting Paste and I have to admit that they’ve made me a believer. I was a skeptic at first, because when I find a product I like it’s hard to get me to switch, and that’s how I’ve been for years with my previous paste, but I have to say that I’m a huge fan of this new offering from Dove Men. Here are the details on this new product from Dove Men:
