YETI M30 Hopper

This might be YETI’s best soft cooler yet! They ditched the zipper in favor of magnets and we LOVE it. This is a little spendy, but it is one of the nicest coolers we’ve ever stuffed with beer. The magentic closure is fantastic, the outer shell is super durable and best of all… it keep your beverages cold for the long haul.

This is by far the best laser rangefinder on the market right now. Delivering accurate yardages at any distance it what it does best. If you’re looking for a rangefinder that is USGA legal when you need it (tournaments) and ready to read slope for tricky up-hill or down hill shots… the PRO XE has got it all. One of my favorite features of this rangefinder is the STRONG magnetic pad on the right side of the device, which allow you to attach it to the golf cart securely throughout a round of golf. It’s a pretty pricey, but if you’re looking for the ultimate holiday gift for the guy or gal that is in love with the sport of golf. You won’t find anything better.

Bulleit Bourbon

1504156_10152154467981023_675623720_o-1Speaking of staying warm… Bulleit Bourbon bourbon offers a taste of creamy vanilla, pickling spices, and buttery pralines. We were concerned that the high rye content was going to be overpowering but instead added a subtle taste that was very well appreciated. What we found with Bulleit is really no need to mix it with anything as the unique recipe offers a taste that will make a a traditional cocktail taste than you are used to with a traditional bourbon. We really enjoyed this on the rocks with a splash of orange bitters which helped extenuate the light toffee flavor and bring out the spices a bit more. Bulleit is aged for at least 6 years and a recipe that has evolved over 175 years, you are getting a quality, mature tasting bourbon that any bourbon drinker will enjoy. We have found this to this to be a go-to drink on our shelf when we are the mood for a good sipping bourbon.If you’re already a Bulleit fan and want to try something new, we suggest trying the 10yr or the Rye, both are fantastic alterations on the original.
