Jim-Murray-Best-Whiskey-in-the-World

If you don’t know Jim Murray, you don’t know whiskey. The man behind the uber-influential Whisky Bible selects his favorite bottle every year, and every year it leads to a feeding frenzy at local bottle shops. Well, sharks, get ready, because here’s Murray’s pick for this year’s best whisky. Colonel E.H. Taylor is a small-batch bourbon release from Buffalo Trace and it’s packed with caramel corn sweetness, butterscotch notes, and an aftertaste reminiscent of tobacco and spice. It’s a bourbon that moves beyond just sweet heat. Murray says, “Nothing could match the astonishing beauty of its surprisingly delicate weight and complexity combined. It was though time stood still in the tasting room; I just knew…” That’s high praise from a man with a golden palate. Unfortunately, finding a bottle is easier said than done, as it sold out at most establishments shortly after its release.

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
