Aged in cold weather for 16 years in newly charred American oak barrels, Lock Stock & Barrel's Straight Rye Whiskey will be a standout in any home bar collection. The aromatic flavor includes notes of roasted acorns, sour grass, wild cherries, stewed blackberry, dried pear, and sassafras.
One of the best soundtracks of all time, I'd blindly gift this Bob Dylan record to just about anyone. Splurge for tickets to Desert Trip (aka Dad-chella) or just furbish his vinyl collection with rarities.
