Finally making its way to the shores of the U.S. is an interesting offering from Jameson that should excite Irish whiskey fans and beer fans alike. For Caskmates, Jameson finished the Irish Pot Still Whiskey in casks that once held a stout from Franciscan Well. The result is a familiar Jameson experience with an interesting cocoa and roast coffee finish. And while the whole project could have gone horribly awry, the bittersweet dessert notes are really a nice touch. You should be able to find a bottle of Caskmates in stores now.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
