Lagavulin 16-Year Whisky + Nick Offerman Puzzle
I bet 99.99% of you didn’t know that January 29th is National Puzzle Day. If anyone out there actually knew this then big ups to you. Anyway, I’m throwing down on this Nick Offerman x Lagavulin puzzle for NPD this year because I haven’t actually completed a puzzle in several years and I’m extremely overdue. My spirit of choice will be the 16-year Lagavulin which you can purchase on Drizly and have shipped straight to your doorstep. It’s got a full nose and dry body that hits you with cascading layers of vanilla, tobacco, and sherry spice. It truly is a magnificent spirit.
I interviewed Nick Offerman around this time last year (mid-February) and we discussed how he’d spend his perfect St. Patrick’s Day. You can check out my interview with him here .

Who’s ready to do a 30-day challenge ahead of March and get into Spring Break shape with the heal of these GNC supps? I’ve featured three premium supplements froom GNC to help you realize some gains in 2021. First up (on the left) is the UNBREAKABLE PERFORMANCE Amino ($24) which is fueled by GNC Amino.

Ardbeg’s distillery manager Mickey Heads (3x IWC ‘Distillery of the Year’ award winner) is retiring after 13 years of running the distillery and they’re releasing a limited-edition ‘Arrrrrrrdbeg!’ ($179) in his honor. It is matured in ex-rye casks and has a spicy punch that ignites waves of kiwi, melon, smoked toffee, and sourdough biscuits. It wafts notes of banana, pear, rye bread, pastry and sherbert on the notes and is bottled at 51.8% ABV which makes it an ideal after-dinner drink for me. It’s hitting the market on February 1st and Arrrrrrrdbeg! will be the distillery’s very first whisky wholly matured in ex-rye casks. The bottle’s art depicts distiller Mickey as a salty pirate and was done by Brazilian artist Butcher Billy. This will be exclusively available to Ardbeg Committee members which you can learn about by hitting that ‘shop now’ button below!
The Draft Top Drinking Tool
Drinking beer out of a pint glass is great and all but so is drinking straight out of the can. You shouldn’t have to choose one or the other and thanks to this ingenious drinking device you no longer have to choose. Did you know you actually taste more of your beer when you’re able to detect more of the smells when drinking it out of a glass? Of course, you did.
T he Draft Top safely turns your beer can into a beer glass. It is a patented bar tool that enables you to safely take the top off your beer cans and smooth over the edge. My favorite part about The Draft Top is it’s only $25 . I’d think that a patented device like this would be pricey since there’s no competition and it’s a pretty cool tool but they have it very appropriately priced.
2021’s Best Flannel Shirts (So Far)
These are featured in ascending order of price. The Wellen Natural Wash Check Shirt ($98) comes in three colors. It’s cut from soft organic cotton that’s washed for softness and a vintage fade. The Flint and Tinder American Made Flannel ($98) comes in six colors. It is made in Los Angeles and this classic American print never goes out of style. What I love about this arrangement of colors is how it will naturally fit with a lot of your existing jeans/pants/boots/shoes.
The Jack Shirt by Taylor Stitch ($125) comes in four different colors. It is a brushed plaid buttondown that’s ideal for layering and the medium weight fabric will keep you comfy and warm. The Flint and Tinder Crossback Workshirt ($128) comes in three classic colors. It is a looseweave blanket-thick flannel is built for adventures or living every day to the max. You can rock this to work or on a camping trip, around the house or running errands. It’s just a great all-around shirt.
