WhistlePig’s Boss Hog: The Greatest Rye Ever Made

I was recently lucky enough to have been sent a bottle of Boss Hog from WhistlePig, and could not have better things to say about this Rye.

As I have written before, WhistlePig is a newer distillery based out of Vermont. Their current products include the WhistlePig 100/100 Rye (100% rye, 100 proof), and the Boss Hog. The Boss Hog is available in limited batches, is hand numbered with cask number and ABV. Continue reading “WhistlePig’s Boss Hog: The Greatest Rye Ever Made” »

The Deanston Virgin Oak Scotch Whisky Review

This is one of the most interesting bottles of whiskey I have reviewed, for a number of reasons.

As an owner of a whisky blog, I sometimes get sent bottles from the marketing legs of a distillery. I was sent this bottle along with a beautiful hand-written card, and as a result I was inspired to try it immediately (twist my arm!) and write up my review. Only it didn’t exactly work out that way. I had my first dram, but after I had no idea what I wanted to say about it. I decided to give it a couple of days, and a couple more glasses to decide how I really felt about it, but then the holidays happened.

A Simple Guide to Giving the Perfect Speech

Despite being one of the most common fears in the world, writing and presenting a perfect speech is far easier than you may believe.

I take every opportunity I have to give a speech. After giving the best speech of the night, you get to feel like a super-star. Everyone in the room makes a point to come up to you and tell you how much they enjoyed your words, it’s one of the greatest ego boosts you can ever get. Not only that, it’s an opportunity to set the tone, and make the night memorable. Nothing will make your best friend’s fiance love you more than by gracing her wedding with a perfect speech.

The best part: it’s not nearly as difficult to do as people may think. Continue reading “A Simple Guide to Giving the Perfect Speech” »

A guide for having consistently great sex

When most people talk about good sex (or blog about it), they all seem to completely ignore one of the most important parts of it: how to maintain consistently great sex. How to always have great sex, even after having been together for years.

I had never really thought to write about it until a client of mine asked me for advice on how to keep his sex life great. We have all had good sex, and we have all had bad sex. But the worst thing that can happen is when you find someone with whom you have great sex, only for it to eventually grow dull. If you are a man it is your job to work your ass off to make sure this never happens. Continue reading “A guide for having consistently great sex” »

The Complete Buyers Guide to Vapes and E-Cigs

By the time you finish reading this article you will know everything you need to know about vapes (e-cigs) to get exactly what you need and be an authority for all your friends.

Vapes are quickly becoming big business, and not just with smokers looking for a healthier option. Even non-smokers are joining in because it’s fun and delicious. Just think of a vape as a portable hookah, and to steal the slogan from one of the better juice makers: it’s a hobby, not a habit.

Approaching the scene can be a little daunting: there are dozens of brands, options, and all of them using words and numbers which mean nothing to the average person. Most people have no idea where to get started, and end up with something sub-par as a result. I’m here to tell you that it’s actually quite simple, once someone breaks it down for you.

For the majority of us, our teenage years were spent in the pursuit of trying to be, think, and act cool. Unfortunately, a lot of the decisions we made are holding us back in our adult life.

The hardest part about shedding these boyish thoughts is identifying them in the first place. You have lived with these ideas, preferences, and preconceptions for so long they just feel normal, they feel right. The problem is when you made these choices, you were a naive child. You had no idea what you were doing in life, and were in no place to be making decisions for an adult man. Continue reading “How to be a Man: Stop Thinking like a Boy” »

Dominance and Devotion: How to Run a Relationship

Relationships don’t drive themselves, someone has to wear the pants and make sure things run smoothly and keep moving forward.

To be clear, it doesn’t matter who is wearing the pants in a relationship, just as long as they wear them well. There is no advantage to ‘the man’ always being the one in charge, but as a man it is your responsibility to make sure someone is behind the wheel. If your relationship is without a driver, it’s your job to step up and take control.

The first thing you need to understand to wear pants well, is what you need, and what you want, from your relationship. Continue reading “Dominance and Devotion: How to Run a Relationship” »

The Art of the First Date

The only thing worse than not being able to approach, meet, and set up a date with a cute girl, is getting that far and then dropping the ball.

A bad date for any reason is an uncomfortable, costly, waste of time. It can leave a sour taste in your mouth, and even affect your confidence and self image.
