Everyone knows that, if you happen to be traveling internationally, you need to check out the Duty Free for tobacco, cologne, chocolate and liquor because you can probably find a sweet deal on a volume purchase. But there are also some exclusive spirits that can only be purchased at “travel retail” locations. The latest Duty Free release is this Ballantine’s 21 Year Old Signature Oak Edition that pays tribute to the cask maturation pioneer George Ballantine, who founded the company. The European oak that the single malt whiskies are aged in prior to blending is said to enhance the flavor notes and the personality of the whisky. Ballantine’s even hooked up with Korean woodworking artist Lee Sam Woong to produce a sculpture that pays homage to the wood that makes whisky great.
If you don’t have a cigar cutter on hand when you want to light up a cigar you need to get all MacGyver with it. And since a cigar cutter isn’t part of the average everyday carry collection, this can happen often. Instead of adding another item to your already packed pockets consider having your knife pull double duty. The Cigar Cutter Pocket Knife packs a cigar cutter right in the handle. Pair that with the long-lasting AUS-8 stainless blade and you have a tool that will assist in small chores and in enjoying a cigar when you’re done with them.
