Wind & Throttle

LADIES!

You’re gonna wanna check out our friend Jennifer and her Chicago-based boutique Wind & Throttle. She recently dreamed up some exclusive designs and color ways that you’re going to love.

Like this Nomad muscle tank…

Or this More Throttle More Thrills tee in black and white…

Or the classic Vivos Voco tee in burgundy…

Forged

There’s a time when it all comes together—what you long for and what you fear—and as tentative as you may feel, you’re driven to continue. At that point, the need to forge ahead is the only option, and your direction is defined despite yourself.

Whiskey Review: Old Dominick Huling Station Bourbon

I’ll be up front with you: I love this bourbon.

I’m having a glass as I type.

IMG_E7968%25255B1%25255D.jpg

On a whim, I recently popped into a local wine and spirits shop that I had never been in before (you know, the kind that just says “Wine & Spirits” on the storefront), and decided to let Doug recommend a bottle of something nice. I had never met Doug, but it was apparent early in our conversation that—on top of being a knowledgeable dude when it comes to whiskey—we have very similar taste.

He took to my ask for something bold, complex, unique, but without annoying heat, and introduced me to Huling Station Bourbon from Old Dominick, out of Memphis, Tennessee.

Ladies and gentlemen, this might be the best $40 bourbon I’ve ever had.

In their own words, “Huling Station is an homage to the whiskeys of 1866 Memphis, with a high-rye mash bill reminiscent of those offered by Domenico Canale in his heyday.”

I’m drinking neat…

Appearance: The color is a brilliant copper, with hints of cherry in certain lighting.

Nose: The allure of warm caramel and toasted vanilla ran up my nostrils during the first smell, with the addition of browned butter as I drew in my second long sniff.

Palate: With a sort of masculine elegance, this 100 proof bourbon pulls in beautifully. The underlying caramel and vanilla are enveloped by a balanced spice with a bit of cherry and other dark fruits knocking on the door.

Bottom Line: Buy this bourbon. (And no, they didn’t pay me or even send me a free bottle to write that.) If you can’t find it at your local shop, ask for it. If your local shop doesn’t bring it in, move to Tennessee. It’s that simple, y’all.

Cheers, friends.

You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.

I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.
