The holidays are fast approaching, and it can be daunting to shop for a cigar lover. With a little bit of guidance you can find a gift that will knock their socks off. I highly recommend going to a local shop and taking to an expert face-to-face – it can be difficult, though not impossible, to get custom recommendations from online retailers. A good tobacconist can listen to your questions and concerns and make a recommendation accordingly.
I love the Glencarin glass. There are lots of other whiskey glasses out there, but the Glencarin is undeniably the gold standard. Whenever I try a new whiskey glass I feel like I am cheating on the Glencarin. Other glasses work just fine, but the Glencarin just feels exactly right. There’s even a new bourbon-specific glass that a bunch of Master Distillers came up with through extensive research and design, and while I have yet to try it I will likely always go back to the Glencarin.
The Holiday shopping season is upon us. If you have a Bourbon lover in your life you probably want to get them something special to go along with that bottle of Bourbon. But what do you get for the Bourbon-obsessed that isn’t just another t-shirt? Not to worry, we have you covered. Here’s a list of truly unique gifts for the Bourbon lover in your life. 1. Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented Cigars
These cigars are not dipped in or sprayed with Whiskey.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
