Greetings from the road, everyone. Last week was one of the lightest we’ve had since starting the blog, but preparing for a 30+ day journey takes a lot out of you. As usual, Rob and I made the most of some pre-travel time to get some great content in the queue, though we’ll be shooting for a couple very exciting partnerships as we travel. I’ve honestly been slammed and needed desperately to decompress last week so I could clear my mind and continue to be inspired. However, rest assured that we’ll be keeping our usual publishing schedule as we travel, including a new series on the YouTube channel that’ll be rolling out next week.

When I went to Milan last fall, I definitely had an agenda and a very specific list of things I’d hoped to acquire. A few shirts from Al Bazar, Cuban cigars, and a topcoat. Having checked off the first two items fairly quickly, I set about looking for my topcoat. Like many who travel to foreign soil, I was searching for something special and unique that you likely wouldn’t see the Average Joe (or even studied aficionado) sporting in the States. Call it a bit of a grown-up menswear hipster complex, if you will.

I’ve always been of the opinion that style encompasses so much more than just clothing. It’s the whole package, which includes a knowledge and appreciation of many different things, one of those being good whiskey. So in that spirit, we’re getting ready to try out something new in the next few weeks – namely, adding a little whiskey tasting series to the YouTube channel. As a matter of fact, we’re shooting the first few episodes today. I’ll be joined by my good friend Chris, and we’ll be sharing our thoughts on some of our favorite whiskies. To help prepare for the new series, let’s take a look at five whiskey terms you should know.
