Info on Bushmill's new 29-year-old whiskey, a preview of Specialized's new line of utility e-bikes and two powerful portable Marshall Bluetooth speakers.
It's official, the iPod is good and truly dead. Announced in the Apple Newsroom yesterday, the brand is discontinuing the last remaining iPod model: the iPod Touch. This last bastion of iPod tech was originally released in 2019, with tech that basically made it a media-only, tuned-down version of the iPhone 7. Naturally, the iPod series has been on life support for years now, with Apple clearly not introducing or investing in new models that effectively only play music, and consumers (logically) using their iPhones as an all-in-one replacement to carrying around a traditional music-only Apple device. While Apple's 20-year legacy with the iPhone may be coming to a close in 2022, you can still snap up an iPod Touch while supplies last over on Apple webstore. When they're gone, they're gone. Today we're touching on Bushmill's 29 Year Old Pedro Ximenez Cask Whiskey, a preview of Specialized's new line of utility e-bikes and two powerful portable Marshall Bluetooth speakers.

It may be minimalist in design, but the MIT 100 Automatic Inflatable PFD by Mustang Survival packs serious performance in its sleek package. By incorporating Membrane Inflatable Technology (MIT), Mustang Survival has produced a lightweight and flexible front-entry vest fashioned from strong but comfortable nylon fabric that outperforms the competition. When fully inflated, the MIT 100 generates a very impressive 28 lbs of buoyancy, which is enough to float most wearers face-up (and is 1.5x the output of typical foam vests.)
Bushmills 29-Year-Old Pedro Ximenez Cask Single Malt Irish Whiskey has a unique flavor that only time can create. The whiskey was triple distilled in 1992 and aged in hand-selected Bourbon casks for over a decade. Then, in 2004, they took it out and finished it in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks for 17 years. The finished product is a sweet rich flavor with layers of dried fruit, praline, orange peel, and malt vanilla.
Who says you have to wear an argyle sweater vest or a Tiger Woods-signature Nike mockneck to look good on the links? Dockers and Malbon Golf have teamed up to create a suite of course-ready golf gear that blends workwear with pieces that would look right at home in any country clubhouse. As expected, the collection is anchored by Dockers' signature khakis, appearing in both chino pants and chore coats (not to mention a pair of overalls). For more classically golf-ready pieces, fans can also scope out four golf polos and shorts.
Just in case you missed it in our round up of gadgets to keep an eye on from last week, Marshall's dropped two new Bluetooth speakers: the Willen and Emberton II. The smaller Willen is a brand new model for Marshall, and features 15 hours of playback and is powered by a full-range driver and two passive radiators. The Emberton II is (as the name implies) a second generation speaker with one more full-range driver, a third passive radiator and double the battery life of the Willen at 30 hours of playback.
Announced earlier this week, Specialized is launching sub-brand Globe, a line of utility e-bikes that's designed to reduce car dependency while providing a "a commitment to lifetime value and affordability." Details are light at the moment, but the first teaser image — a bike with a massive cargo load of cacti — give us a good indication the bikes are meant to be playful but functional. Stay tuned as more details surface in the coming months.
