The legendary Defender has certainly emerged into the 21st century with more power, refinement, and technology than its rather rudimentary (but still awesome) predecessor. Now, the Defender comes in a plug-in hybrid version that probably has devotees scratching their heads. The new powertrain takes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine coupled with a 105-kilowatt electric motor that’s powered by a 19.2-kilowatt-hour trunk-mounted battery. If you think that sounds weak, think again. Combined horsepower is 398 that’s good for a zero to 60 mph sprint of 5.4 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph. It also happens to get 85.3 mpg on the WLTP combined cycle and an electric-only range of 27 miles. It’s for sale in the European market at about $85K USD, and we might just see it come here, too. Whodathunk you’d see the day when Defender had a cord? We didn’t see it coming.

We don’t know much about math. But we do know that when Keeper’s Heart announced they’d be making an Irish Whiskey + Bourbon bottle, we were intrigued. It’s here, and it is a simply stunning combination. Brian Nation (formerly of Jameson, Redbreast and Midleton whiskeys and now Keeper’s Heart master distiller) teamed up with David Perkins (the founder of High West distillery) to create this smooth, yet complex combo of Irish + Bourbon. It’s truly a marriage made in whiskey heaven. Pick up a bottle today.
