Helping Men Survive the 4th Week of July
Every week here at The Dignified Devil, we spend a lot of time thinking about how we can help the modern man survive the modern world. This week of course is no different. Today we explore the apps, the tools, the gadgets and the books that will enlighten the modern man as he navigates his way through his week. These are the things that are worth a man’s time, money, attention and space in his Junk Drawer.

Canadian Maple Rye Whisky
By Tap 357
The resurgence of popularity for rye whiskies indicates the ranks of the dignified gentlemen are swelling. A more robust and full-bodied liquor, rye whiskies are worthy of the legacy of bootleggers who kept the tradition alive throughout prohibition. The blended rye whisky used in TAP 357 is produced at the oldest distillery in Western Canada, where it is distilled four times then matured in a combination of new, second- and third-use bourbon barrels. Once properly aged, the whisky is married with pure Canada 1 Light maple syrup and further aged. An outstanding offering at an accessible price point.
