Heavens Doors x Redbreast The Master Blenders’ Edition

Heaven's Door Redbreast Masters Blenders Edition

I had the good fortune of doing a virtual tasting this week with Heaven’s Door master blender Ryan Perry and Billy Leighton of Redbreast Irish Whiskey. Ryan and Billy shared their new Heavens Doors x Redbreast The Master Blenders’ Edition with me. This is the first-ever collaboration for these brands and it’s truly astounding.

To give you an idea of how good this whiskey is, they submitted it in an unmarked bottle to the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and it’s already been awarded a Double Gold medal in a blind taste test. The judges tasted it and immediately demanded answers, that’s how good it is.

The whiskey itself is 10-Year Aged Heaven’s Door Bourbon that is finished in Redbreast’s world-renowned Single Pot Still Casks for 15 months. The flavors come together in pursuit of flavor perfectioin. I have lots of notes from the tasting and will have a longer review coming in the near future but I wanted to put this on your radar because you can try and pre-order a bottle by hitting that ‘shop now’ button below and heading over to ReserveBar.

Blue Run 13.5-Year-Old Single Barrel Cask Strength Bourbon

Blue Run 13.5-Year-Old Single Barrel Cask Strength Bourbon

BroBible


I’ve written about Blue Run spirits in the past year and will likely continue to for the rest of my life because they continue to bottle perfection. I got my hands on this sample for tasting and the new 13.5-Year-Old Single Barrel is a bursting cornucopia of flavor. It’s already won Double Gold in San Francisco too!

One really cool aspect of this release is that it’s actually multiple releases at once. The release includes ten separate limited-edition bottlings from ten different barrels and somewhere between 104 to 150 bottles will be available from each barrel so it will be hard to find! It sold out quick upon announcement but you can still find it around if you look really hard.

I can’t really do much in the way of explaining tasting notes here because it’s ten releases in one and I’ve only tried one. But drop by their website and you’ll find a full rundown of each bottling.

Best Waterproof Bags Of The Year

Fishing season is upon us and it’s time to pick up one of the best waterproof bags of the year. These dry bags are crucial to a well-rounded collection of fishing gear because they keep everything protected.

As is the case with any fishing trip, you will want to pick your waterproof bag based on your needs. Certain factors to consider will be price, materials, size, and whether you plan on carrying it or stuffing it in a boat or kayak.

That image above is interactive. You can click on each dry bag to learn more about it. Or follow the links below!

Stix Golf Clubs

While the big-name brands out there have the top of the market saturated for the more experienced players and those that just have to get their hands on the newest clubs each year, Stix has the market cornered for the casual golfer that wants aesthetically pleasing, better quality clubs that won’t break the bank.

You could spend countless hours online just searching for the driver you want to purchase, and more often than not, the casual golfer is going to gravitate toward the most expensive one on the market because a higher price point has to mean it’s the best option for every player, even for someone that may not even play 10 rounds per year. That same mindset would likely ring true for every other club in the bag, this is where the beauty of Stix Golf truly shines.
