Russell’s Reserve 2003 ‘Vintage’ Series Release

Russell's Reserve 2003 barrel proof Vintage series

Cass Anderson

Russell’s Reserve just blessed the world with their third release in their prestigious ‘Vintage’ series from master distiller Eddie Russell. The Vintage Series pays homage to Eddie’s father, Jimmy Russell, aka The Buddha of Bourbon. Only 3,600 bottles of this limited release will be available at select retailers nationwide so you’ll want to track this down locally if you love Bourbon and make sure you don’t miss out.

The Russell’s Reserve 2003 for a minimum of 16 years inside the RRR distillery’s Tyrone warehouses and this marks the absolute last of Russell’s Reserve 107-barrel-entry-proof whiskey. The flavor profile and characteristics are similar to special Wild Turkey releases from the late 80s and early 90s and Eddie Russell had a bonafide ‘Eureka!’ moment when he first tasted the barrel’s whiskey bursting with spice, fruit, and butterscotch.

As you can see above, Russell’s Reserve 2003 has a rich dark amber color. The aroma is full of sweet baking spices, fully-ripe stonefruits, and butterscotch. Two of my sweet ‘vices’ are caramel and butterscotch and the palate carries balanced flavors of burnt caramel, pepper, leather, and buttery vanilla. The finish is smooth, smokey, and has lingering notes of sweet caramel and vanilla. As I said above, it’s bottled at 107-barrel-proof but it drinks at 89.5-proof which means you can very comfortably enjoy it neat without needing to dilute it. To check for local availability you can follow that ‘shop now’ button below to visit Drizly or you can head to the WildTurkey website for more.

Muckety-Muck Single 24-Year ‘Orphan Barrel’ Whiskey

Muckety Muck Orphan Barrel Whiskey

Orphan Barrel

Orphan Barrel Whiskey Co. is one of the coolest players in the game. Starting back in 2014, they track down, bottle, and share delicious rare whiskeys that have been forgotten by time, whiskeys tucked in the back of rickhouses and distilleries. Their latest release is the Muckety-Muck Single Grain Scotch Whiskey Agest 24 Years (90 proof).

The 24-Year-Old Muckety Muck comes from the now-ghost Port Dundas Distillery which was at one time one of the most respected distilleries in all of Scotland and it was also home to hundreds of iconic pigs. One prize-winning pig was named Muckey-Muck who won medals galore and this exquisite single malt is named in honor of that pig. It carries light toasted oak and a butterscotch vanilla finish. The thing about Orphan Barrel releases is that once they’re gone they are gone forever. This is the only chance to sample this release as the distillery no longer exists and there isn’t another batch on the way. To check availability and see if you can purchase this online you can hit that ‘shop now’ button below to find it on Drizly.

Christopher Cloos x Brady Collection

Tom Brady x Christopher Cloos sunglasses

Christopher Cloos

Thinking back a year I could I simply could not imagine a world where Tom Brady would leave the New England Patriots and come play for my Tampa Bay Buccaneers and relieve me of Jameis Winston’s INTs every Sunday. If you told me that was a possibility I would’ve laughed in your face. But here we are. Me, flipping on my TV on Sundays to root for the G.O.A.T. and his gorgeous Christopher Cloos custom shades.

This collaboration between Brady and Cloos are made with biodegradable frames. Brady wanted to bring his eye for precision to this collection and the two parties came together for these gorgeous shades. There are 16 options in total which you can check out by hitting that ‘shop now’ button below!

Janji Running Gear

Janji

Well, guys, after competing in a ‘virtual’ 10K in August I regret to inform you all that I’m back on my b.s. and am training for another (longer) race next month which means I’ve got running on the mind most of the day. Janji Running Gear is a personal favorite of mine and a brand I think you gentlemen will love if you give it a chance. I’m particularly fond of their half-zip that has a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish to keep the rain away as well as their shorts.

I’ve pulled a few of my favorite pieces from Janji Running for you guys to check out. I’ve got two zip layers, a long sleeve tee, a pair of pants I’ve been wearing every day for a week, and your new favorite running shorts. First up is the Janji Men’s Transit Tech Half Zip ($88) which is a lightweight weather and wind-resistant shell that has the DWR finish, a kangaroo pocket in the middle, blue reflectivity for lowlight conditions, and more.

The Pike Pocket Knife

Pike Pocket Knife Tool for Everyday Carry

James Brand

The Pike is a super limited-edition pocket knife from The James Brand that I needed you gentlemen to know about before it’s gone. Only 300 of the Rosewood Brass model were made and they’ll be gone in no time. In addition to the Rosewood-Brass Pike model, there’s also Black on Black model with a handle made from ‘G10’ which is a high-pressure fiberglass composite. The blacked-out model might actually be my favorite of this new line of Pike Pocket Knives from The James Brand ($120).

The one thing that might trip you up about The Pike pocket knife is the price tag of $120 but this is truly a world-class tool that’s built for superior edge retention and can be used every day and passed down to the next generation.

First up here is the stylish and rugged G-Shock GMWB5000D-1 Watch ($550) and there are only 4 left in stock because it’s flying off the shelves. This is a ‘battle tested’ watch model that’s trusted by athletes, military, and it’s even NASA-space flight certified. It is resistant against electric shock, gravity, low temperatures, vibration, water, and impact and this particular model is a modern update on a classic style. Perhaps the coolest aspect of this watch is how it uses a radio signal to keep time. ‘G-Shock’s Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping technology to provide accurate timekeeping via radio signals from 6 transmitters worldwide’ and the solar panel keeps it juiced up using the sun’s light. Again, there are only 4 of these left in stock so if you’re interested you might want to act fast!

100% Waterproof All-Weather Duckboots

All Weather Duckboot II

Huckberry

It’s Duckboot season and I can say this with complete confidence because I wore my duck boots within the past 24 hours. This year you’re going to get down with the best duckboots around, a new model that was just released by Huckberry.

The All-Weather Duckboot II ($188) laughs in the face of foul weather. Your feet will always stay dry and these boots look damn fine in two different colorways.

The Duckboot is a classic style that offers the durability and versatility of a Range Rover. It’s the rare bot style that you can dress up or down for foul weather and won’t be judged on the style of footwear because it’s a universally accepted boot. Whether you’re camping, hiking, riding, running errands, or headed to work in inclement weather this is the go-to style of the season.

Limited-Edition Surfboard Collab

R Series Almond x Huckberry Surfboards Yusuke Hanai

Huckberry

Almond Surfboards have been hand-shaping custom boards in Costa Mesa, California for years. Their original mission was to shape California originals that ‘would be lasting in quality and function’ and they’ve been perfecting that process ever since and hand-shaping surfboards that can be passed down as heirlooms to the next generation. They’ve now teamed up with Japanese surfer/artist Yusuke Hanai for a retro-inspired Huckberry exclusive and released three different boards, each of which is limited to only 100 boards hand-shaped which means they’ll be gone before the holidays.

The three limited-edition boards include the R-Series 5’4″ ($399), R-Series 6’4″ ($529), and the R-Series 8’0″ ($550). The R-Series surfboards offer ‘no fiberglass, no wax, and no compromise in performance’ and they are 100% recyclable thanks to ‘Almond’s groundbreaking Recycling Loyalty Program and make no trade offs in their ability to rip’. I think what stands out the most about these surfboards beyond the craftsmanship and art is that you can literally rip on them and then hang them up in your man cave on the wall and they’ll look awesome.
