April Whisky Bundle: A Trio From Springbank Distillery

It’s time for another whisky bundle to add to your growing collection of amazing gold liquid at your home bar. This month Kyle and I put together a fun little ditty from the region of Campbeltown. Tucked away in the South West Corner of Scotland, Campbeltown used to be home to as many as 34 distilleries. Now there are only two left, and they produce some very exciting whiskies indeed. The whiskies in this month’s bundle all come from one distillery; two are homages to closed distilleries, and the other is one of our all-time favorite daily drams. These three bottles would normally retail together for $226.97, but purchased as a bundle, we’re offering them for just $190. Without further ado, our April Whisky Bundle of Joy, featuring Springbank Distillery.

Hazelburn 12

A nod to the past, and a shuttered distillery, Hazelburn is triple-distilled single malt scotch whisky, made in the same style in which it was made back in the mid-1920s, before the distillery was closed by owners Mackie & Co., who just happened to also own Springbank at the time. At the time, it was the largest distillery in the region. The first thing you notice out of the glass is light, sweet spice influenced from a sherry cask, perhaps a touch of stone fruit marmalade. It hits the mid-palate immediately, with mild baking spices that fall down the sides of your palate nicely. Long fruity finish and overall pleasant dram.

Springbank 10

As the entry whisky to the Springbank line, this is nothing short of delicious. This lightly-peated whisky offers notes of pears and fall orchard fruit. Vanilla follows through due to the maturing in the bourbon cask. On the palate the baking spices continue to show through in force: Cinnamon, vanilla, clove, and oak are the stars here. The tingle of the spice fades into a long finish with a lingering sweetness. This is one of our all-time favorite whiskies.

Longrow Heavily Peated

Each year the good folks at Springbank produce Longrow whisky, as well as the previous two mentioned. And Longrow always stands tall with the other releases. This offering is the peatiest of the whiskies from this distillery. The nose is all smoke and vanilla, accompanied by marshmallows roasted over a campfire. The palate is creamy and smoky with a slight touch of iodine–in a good way of course. The peat holds tight through the finish as it lingers until every last ember of that campfire burns out.

I hope you enjoy these whiskies as much as we do.

Keep you eyes open for next months Bundle of Joy coming from a far off continent.

This Thursday, from 12-3pm, Wingtip founder Ami Arad will hold court on the sidewalk outside of Wingtip for one of his famous “Any Reasonable Offer Will Do” sales. The odds and ends that didn’t sell during the fall season will be available for a song, a reasonable song, that is.

Ami suggests that if you aren’t versed in the art of haggling, you check out the tutorial below before the sale.

Bi-Annual Risk / Reward Sale On Now

Our bi-annual Risk/Reward Sale is brimming with fresh spring and summer apparel at 38% Off.

The sale event raises the discount by one percentage point each day, meaning that seasonal apparel will be 39% Off tomorrow, 40% the day after, and so forth. This sale tests a customer’s capacity for risk–do you buy the shirt at 38% Off? Or wait until it hits 50? The rewards increase–lower priced merch–but the risk that your choice of color or size has been sold out, increases in tandem.

As we creep up toward 65% or even 70% Off, there will be very little left in the way of sizing and color options. At that point the sale will simply disappear–and the risk will have outweighed the reward. So don’t miss out with 38% OFF NOW.

This season, sale items include clothing from Peter Millar (50+ items), Bills Khakis (25+ items), Agave Denim (15 items), Wingtip (5+ items), and Dunhill (10+ items).

And don’t forget: You can now accrue points good for store credit on sale merchandise you buy (although points cannot be redeemed for sale merchandise). Read all about the very generous Wingtip Rewards program that earns you 10% back in store credit for qualifying purchases. Enroll at the first step of Checkout.

Ike Behar CEO Shirts

CEO’s come cheaper than you think

Ike Behar CEO fabrics

Given the news and recent economic trends, you’d be forgiven for associating all CEO’s with astronomical dollar figures. The exception: our overstock of Ike Behar CEO shirts, which are now 50% off.

In Ike Behar’s parlance, CEO stands for custom express original. These are made-to-order dress shirts, crafted from bolts of fabric that we have in our store (that’s a photos of our collection). You get to choose the collar size, sleeve length, collar style, cuffs, and whether you’d like a pocket. The shirts are made in Florida, and will now set you back only $122.50 apiece, instead of the usual $245. You can find out more by clicking here.

Please note: because we’re offering such a deal, we cannot accept requests for specific colors or styles. If you order one of these shirts, we’ll give you a random selection from our remaining stock.

 

Why is Stuff 27% Off Today?

Today is Day 3 of our "Risk/Reward Sale" which means seasonal items are now marked down 27%. Why 27%?

Every year, after the holidays, we begin a SALE to clear out Fall’s merchandise before Spring starts arriving. Every few weeks, the discount would increase but there would be less to choose from. This year, we’re doing things a little different with a SALE we’re going to refer to as the Risk/Reward Sale.

The "Reward" part is the transparent increase in the discount each day of 1%. The markdown started at 25% on Monday, increased to 26% yesterday, and
now 27% today. You can probably guess where it will be tomorrow.

Why would anyone buy today when it will be cheaper tomorrow or next week or the week after that? Well, that’s the "Risk" part. There are others out there that find 26% off a Peter Millar cashmere sweater or Bills Khakis corduroys to be a great deal, and in most cases, we only have 1 item left in any size & color combination. So if you wait for greater savings, you’ll surely be browsing a smaller selection.

And don’t forget: you can now accrue points good for store credit on sale merchandise you buy (although points cannot be redeemed for sale merchandise). Read all about the very generous Frequent Flyer program we launched last month that earns you 10% back in store credit for qualifying purchases. Enroll at the first step of Checkout.
