Four Roses Small Batch Select

Four Roses Small Batch Select

Four Roses


Four Roses Small Batch Select Bourbon is a non-chill filtered bourbon that clocks in at a perfect 104-proof. It carries tasting notes of raspberries, cloves, and nutmeg on the nose with a smooth finish of lingering spearmint and cinnamon. You’ll find hints of vanilla, light oak, apricot, and berries on the tongue. It was also named one of the Top 20 Whiskeys of the Year (#3 overall) by Whiskey Advocate.

The Four Roses Small Batch Select Bourbon mixes six recipes, each aged a minimum of 6 years. This expression launched in select states across America in 2019 but has moved into new markets (online as well) in 2020 and you can find this across America now. 100% check this one out.

Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700

Bose


Futuristic noise cancellation is maybe the 700s most impressive feature. You can personalize your environment with 11 levels of noise cancellation. As you increase the noise cancellation from 1 to 11, you incrementally minimize the most invasive work from home distractions—like the dishwasher, or Jim cutting his grass for the third time this week, or my roommate blabbing about something or another.

Janji Running Gear For Men

Janji Running Gear

Janji


I’ve taken my running to the next level lately. Years ago, I was running 3-5 miles a day, five days a week. Then I tore my meniscus (again) and went the better part of the last decade without running regularly and have been hitting the Peloton hard. Now I’m cycling in about 3 runs a week and I’ve been absolutely loving Janji Running gear lately. I have this hat, singlet, and these shorts. The hat is quick-drying and has a DWR finish to keep the sweat out of my eyes.

The singlet is a game-changer for me because it’s so hot outside in Florida I’ve been able to stop myself from overheating with the freedom this provides without sleeves. Sure, this is something a serious running would wear and not often someone like myself but I cannot recommend this enough for Summer running. The shorts are spectacular as well. They are liner-less which means you can go ‘guerilla-style’ out there and let it all hang out while running or you can wear compression shorts like I do sometimes. The stretch fabric gives you a full range of motion and these are also DWR coated so they dry quickly.

YETI Trail Head Camp Chair

YETI Trail Head Camp Chair

YETI / Huckberry


Like all of YETI’s products, the Trail Head Camp Chair is absurdly tough, like tough and rugged to the point that someone like me might never fully take advantage of how incredible this chair is (holds up to 500 pounds!). But that certainly won’t stop me from buying it. After all, we all work hard, why shouldn’t we have the best? This will make an extremely good Father’s Day (or birthday) present since it’s something every guy will love but most guys won’t think to buy for themselves.

Features include:

  • Flexgrid fabric conforms to your natural curvature and won’t sag or stretch over time
  • Packaway folding frame with lightweight construction makes it easy to pack and go in the included dual-strap carry bag
  • Includes one cup holder than can be placed on either side of the chair
  • Tensioner technology in the back and arms locks the chair into place when open to optimize comfort
  • Extra-wide Groundgrip™ feet for stability even on uneven terrain
  • UV-resistant materials that hold up to the sun

Summer Grilling Essentials

Here we’ve got the Meater+ Wireless Meat Thermometer which is a grilling tool I’ve used since the day it was released, and one I’ve featured here on BroBible in the past because I stand by how incredible the Meater+ is. Seriously, I rarely run my smoker without using the Meater+ because it helps me achieve a perfect temperature every time. the built-in Bluetooth repeater in the charger extends the range of the Meater+ to a whopping 165-feet. There are no wires whatsoever and you an monitor everything on the Meater smartphone app to make sure you never overcook your meat. If you treat yourself to something new today is should be the Meater+ Wireless Meat Thermometer.

High-Carbon German Steel Steak Knives

Steak Knives Set Schmidt Brothers

Schmidt Brothers


I’m absolutely not advocating that you spend a small fortune on steak knives because that isn’t necessary, but this 4-piece Steak Knife Set from Schmidt Brothers is worth every penny at only $119 for a set that’s built to last for generations.

This set of 4 Steak Knives from Schmidt Brothers comes in two styles (of handle) for you to choose from, Zebra Wood which is the more traditional-looking wood option and Bonded Ash which is the gorgeous darker/black wooden handles. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with either at only $119 because these are world-class knives.

Dog Essentials From Chewy

Chewy's Treats and Dog Food

Chewy's


I have a 9-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog who is as healthy as can be. This breed has a reputation for their short lifespan compared to other dogs and I have no proof that anything I’ve fed my dog over the years or the ways I’ve raised my dog has led to the long and happy life but I thought I’d throw two staples of my dog’s life on your radar here. The first item is Greenies Teenie Dental Dog Treats. The size of these treats varies depending on the size of your dog but if you have a dog then I cannot recommend these enough. They’re great for your dog’s teeth.

The other item here is Earthborn Holistic Great Plains Feast Grain-Free Natural Dry Dog Food which I’ve been feeding my dog for the past year or so. I like to switch up the food about every two years. Everyone has their own preference with this but I see big spikes fo energy and positive mood changes when I mix things up. This food is a blend of Bison protein, egg protein, and nutrient-rich veggies such as peas, apples, blueberries, carrots, spinach and cranberries. If you’re looking to mix it up with a new dog food I can say this one has been fantastic for my dog. You can also set up auto-ship by following that ‘shop now’ link below to ensure you never run out.

In this instance, that’s referring to pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory, and appetite-regulating properties. Check it out!

On the bottom row, we’ve got the Honey Oil CBD Capsules 25mg 10 Pack which are one of the best CBD Sleep treatments you can find anywhere and they’re absolutely delicious.

YETI Roadie 24 Hard Cooler

YETI Roadie 24 Hard Cooler

YETI


I’m consistently blown away by how season after season, YETI Coolers improves their best-in-class coolers. The all-new YETI Roadie 24 Hard Cooler fits a niche that is very much needed in my daily life. It’s the perfect cooler for tossing in the truck/car and on the boat where it can double as a seat. It is also the perfect height for using as a seat while tailgating, camping, or drinking in the driveway with the neighbors like I’ve been doing for the past few weeks.

The new YETI Roadie 24 Hard Cooler is now 10% lighter, holds 20% more ice/beer/drinks, and has 30% better thermal retention than its predecessor. This also comes in a great sweet spot in terms of price ($199 on YETI’s website) and comes in Navy, White, Desert Tan, and a clean looking Charcoal. Dare I say this is the only thing dad wants for Father’s Day this year? It can sit next to him in the passenger’s seat of the car (or backseat), on the floor of the golf cart, or anywhere else dad wants to crush ice-cold beers while keeping a sandwich cold. Dads love YETIs and you can scoop this one by following that ‘shop now’ button below.
