We love our Amazon Echo devices as much as the millions of other people who own them, but the sound quality plays second fiddle to the impressive tech inside. That’s not an issue any more, because the Sonos One has Amazon Alexa built in. Built on the, as they describe it, “mini-but-mighty blueprints of PLAY:1” the Sonos One is powered by a pair of Class-D amplifiers and custom-built drivers that are tuned specifically for the speaker’s unique acoustic architecture. It also has six custom-designed microphones with smart voice capture and noise cancellation technology so she who shall not be mentioned can hear you regardless of how loud the music is. It wouldn’t be a Sonos product if it wasn’t built to pair with other speakers for multi-room audio, and Sonos One is no different, with the ability to pair multiples for stereo sound, a sub for better base or even your Playbase soundbar for surround sound. Google Assistant and Apple Airplay 2 support is also on the calendar for next year if you’re not a fan of Alexa. The all new Sonos One is up for pre-order now and will be available starting October 24.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
