2) Try The Singleton of Dufftown 21 Year Old and 25 Year Old

Using a combination of American and European oak casks, The Singleton of Dufftown that originates from the Speyside region is sweet and rounded in nature. To create The Singleton of Dufftown 21 Year Old, only one of 20,000 casks of The Singleton maturing whisky stock is chosen. You’ll get a hint of burnt orange, treacle toffee, boiled fruit sweets, and berry fruits.

With the additional four years of maturation, The Singleton of Dufftown 25 Year Old has a light orange gold colour and a stronger tropical fruit scent on the nose. Both variants of the single malt whiskies contain ABV (alcohol by volume) of 43 per cent.

5) Watch Nike’s film You Can’t Stop Us

Debuting to coincide with the return of the National Basketball Association (NBA), this is the third film in Nike’s campaign of the same name. Narrated by Megan Rapinoe, over 4,000 pieces of footage were researched during development (with 72 final sequences selected) and the result—a montage underscoring commonalities shared by athletes everywhere.

The split screen series details 36 duos of athletes while portraying the kinetic movement of one sport to another. In the film, 53 athletes are featured including LeBron James, Naomi Osaka, Eliud Kipchoge, Caster Semenya, Cristiano Ronaldo, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Serena Williams, Colin Kaepernick, and Kylian Mbappé.
