We’re equal opportunity imbibers when it comes to bourbon. But if you forced us to pick a desert island distillery it would almost certainly be Buffalo Trace because of the variety of delicious juices that they produce. One of those previously mentioned delicious options is Eagle Rare. Even though it’s not 10-year age stated anymore, even the basic Eagle is one of the best bourbons under $50 on the market. This is that bourbon but better. This is Double Eagle Very Rare, an ultra-rate, 20-year bourbon packed with hints of vanilla, toasted oak and caramel, while still being incredibly balanced. You can’t age a bourbon until it’s almost old enough to drink itself without making it feel special, so Buffalo Trace spared no expense in the presentation department. Double Eagle Very Rare comes in what can only be described as the supercar of whiskey packaging–a luxurious crystal decanter with double crystal eagles (one inside and one as the stopper) that’s housed in a presentation box with sliding doors that trigger top and bottom spotlights when opened. With only 299 bottles produced, expect this bottle to be incredibly difficult to find–even if you have the $2k to pick it up for retail.


In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
