Cass Anderson

Booker’s Bourbon has released a new batch, Tommy’s Batch, and it pays homage to Tommy Crume. Tommy worked alongside the founding distiller of Booker’s Bourbon, Booker Noe, for many years. And this special new batch is a testament to the dedication and hard work that goes into making a perfect bourbon. Tommy’s retired now, but this 128.5 proof bourbon has been aged 6 years, 4 months, and 6 days to perfection. Do yourself a favor and go taste this IMMEDIATELY. For details on tasting notes you can follow that link below!


The All-New Sonos Playbase

sonos playbase things we want

I’m in the market for some Sonos, so I’ll categorize this under ‘things I want but cannot afford at the moment’ because $699 seems steep for a single speaker base for your TV when I’m not fully ready to commit to the entire sytem…yet. For years we’ve had Sonos in the BroBible office and I’ve loved it. But I work from home these days and am mulling the idea of setting up 3 or 4 rooms in the house with Sonos speakers. The all new Sonos Playbase comes very highly recommended. I checked around with a few friends who have Sonos in their homes and they rave about their systems, one about this Playbase in particular. So I think I’m going to officially add this badass speaker system to my 2017 Wishlist.

— Two-in-one. Full-theater sound for your TV. Streams music, too.
— Low profile design that practically disappears. Sound you just can’t miss.
— Securely supports TVs up to 77 lbs (35 kg).
