Barrell Bourbon Batch 028

Barrell Bourbon batch 028

Barrell Bourbon


I wanted to feature Barrell Bourbon’s Batch 028 this week. For anyone who hasn’t sought this out yet, do so now. It comes from a selection of 10 and 11-year-old Bourbon aged in American white oak barrels in Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana. The 108.86 proof cask strength is so smooth it’s hard to put into words.

This batch has an orange hue and on the nose you’ll find hints of dried apricot and maraschino liqeur mingling with woodsy notes and cocoa butter. The palate is ‘fruit in nature’ but you’ll find smokey sea salt and brown butter as well. The finish is a dance of grapefruit peel, lychee, strawberry, and dragonfruit. You’ll want to pick this one up if you can find it!

Skin Care Products Your Face Will Genuinely Thank You For

Probulin Probiotic Skincare Products

Probulin


Growing up, I was fortunate in that I was never stricken by extreme acne while most of my friends struggled with it throughout puberty. Unfortunately, this led me to believe my skin was ‘set it and forget it’ and I didn’t need to use products to maintain healthy skin. This illusion came crashing down after I moved to NYC and was at a PR event with the founder of a skincare line who pulled me aside during dinner to ask me what moisturizer/products I was using because he was concerned they weren’t working. For real, this happened. A fellow married guy pulled me aside at dinner to tell me how dry and uncared for my skin was.

Since then, I’ve gotten serious about skincare and with Probulin’s Probiotic Facial Serum, Probiotic Night Cream, and Probiotic Skin Therapy 5-Pack you can too. For anyone in need of a complete overhaul and new skincare routine, the Probiotic KSin Therapy 5-Pack is the PERFECT place to start. This pack includes Probiotic Facial Cleansing Gel, Probiotic Facial Serum, Probiotic Day Cream, Probiotic Night Cream, and Probiotic Eye Cream. Even better, you’ll save 25% if you set it to auto-order anywhere from every 4 weeks to 2 months. You’ll also receive 25% off your order with the code ‘BROBIBLE’ at checkout!

With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day around the corner, and for everyone reading this who needs a shock to their skincare routine, just hit that ‘shop now’ button below or click right here to shop Probulin’s probiotic skincare essentials. Just don’t forget to include the code ‘BROBIBLE’ for 25% off your order!

Polarized Shades Are Only $35

affordable summer sunglasses for men

huckberry


Today is an excellent day to refresh your sunglasses. These lightweight polarized sunglasses from Huckberry are only $35, they come in multiple colors, and the classic styles will frame your face perfectly without looking out of place. I don’t know about you bros but I plan on spending A LOT of time outdoors this Spring and Summer to make up for last year.

The two styles of shades we’re looking at here are the Huckberry Weekenders and the Cruisers. Each retails for $35 but there’s a higher-end option for $45 which is still like 1/4 of the cost you can get stuck paying if you go down to the mall for sunglasses. In fact, you can buy every style of these awesome sunglasses and still spend less than you might fork over at the mall.

Keeps: FDA-Approved Solution For Hair Loss

keeps hair loss treatment

Keeps


I’ve reached a point where I don’t have to utter the words “Bloody Mary” three times to be terrified of looking into the mirror, as there’s nothing like the fear that comes with knowing you might gaze at your reflection only to discover your receding hairline has started to give LeBron’s a run for his money—and if you’ve ever experienced that feeling, Keeps is here to help you out.

There are a variety of strategies you can harness when it comes to coping with hair loss, like pivoting to the Mr. Clean look or deciding to become a Hat Guy. However, what if I told you that you could get connected with a certified physician from the comfort of your couch and have an FDA-approved hair loss solution shipped to your door for a fraction of the price you’d normally have to drop at a pharmacy?

YETI’s Making Luggage Now

Having conquered the cooler game and the drinkware game, it was only a matter of time until YETI got in the the luggage game.

YETI just launched a brand new line of travel bags, with the Austin-based outdoor lifestyle company calling it “one our most significant launches to date.”

While YETI has been in the travel bag game for a couple years now, the new YETI Crossroads line cements its comeuppance as a major player. The new line features backpacks, duffels, and soft-sided luggage options, available in a variety of sizes and colors.

YETI also announced their first-ever hard-sided luggage offering, the Panga 22 Carry On, which will be available in April. YETI says it will be their first 100% waterproof luggage item.

A distinguishing characteristic of the new Crossroads Collection is each item’s overall toughness. YETI Crossroads bags are engineered to be lightweight, yet super tough, designed for durability, protection, accessibility, and organization.

Janji’s High-Performance Running Shorts

Janji AFO Middle Running Shorts

Janji


Spring has brought warmer weather to many parts of the country. Summer is just around the corner. It’s that season when we can really get outdoors and work up a sweat. And now’s the perfect time to invest in some new running shorts. I wanted to throw this on your radar today because they’re shorts I love and use myself.

Here we are checking out the all-new Janji AFO Middle Running Short – Lined 5″ ($60) which is my latest obsession for running. I just signed up to do another 10K in a few weeks and might consider doing a half marathon this Summer. Why not, right? The thing with these shorts is you only need a pair or two unless you’re planning on running every single day. I space out my runs for proper recovery time so I’ve got one pair I wear on long runs in the Florida heat (it’s 87 here today!! but a cold front is coming tomorrow) and they’re washed and ready to go, fresh as new by my next run.

Waxed Flight Jacket Reengineered For Maximum Breathability

Waxed Flight Jacket breathable for Spring

Waxed jackets are perfect for Spring when they’re done right and buying the wrong one can backfire pretty quickly. With the wrong waxed jacket, you can find yourself protected from the ‘Spring Showers’ but sweating up a storm underneath because all of your body’s moisture is locked in. This is a miserable experience that nobody wants. Thankfully, the re-engineered Waxed Flight Jacket from Flint and Tinder maximizes breathability and will keep you feeling fresh and dry all Spring and into Summer (and Fall). It’s a brilliant re-design on a classic style you guys are going to love.

The new Flint and Tinder Waxed Flight Jacket ($228) is the perfect Spring jacket, I think, primarily because of its versatility. If it happens to be a late cold front you can toss a sweater on underneath and you’re fine. If the temperature is expected to fluctuate 30 degrees that day, you’re fine. If it’s going to rain and be sunny, you’re good to go. It covers all of your bases and it just looks great.

The Luno Car Camping Air Mattress comes in four sizes to fit the size and shape of your SUV and it turns the back into a comfortable bed with durable 300-denier Oxford fabric and dual-sided firmness. It also includes base extenders to work around the footwells and give you an extra 12 inches of space to sleep.

The Luno Car Camping Air Mattress ($279 on Huckberry) inflates in under two minutes with the included electric pump. And then once it’s deflated in the morning it also packs down so small you can tuck it anywhere in the full SUV and it won’t take up space.
