Starward vitalis

Man of Many’s Most Wanted – October 2022

The holidays are right around the corner and we’ve put together a little wish list, better known as Man of Many’s Most Wanted. As the title would suggest, it rounds up some of our most-desired product releases from this month or the months to come. If anyone out there is feeling extra generous, we certainly wouldn’t stop you from picking up one of the following items on our behalf, like say a vintage-themed Casio watch or Sony’s latest filmmaking camera. ‘Tis the season, right? Okay, okay, we’re not really expecting anyone out there to buy us a gift this year. After all, your loyal readership is a reward unto itself. Here we go.

1. Starward Vitalis

In Partnership with Starward

Nose: Chewy toffee gives way to raisins and chocolate-coated pineapples.
Palate: Met with rich dried fruits, ripe red currants and hints of lightly toasted coffee beans.
Finish: Starward’s quintessential tropical notes provide a delicate balance of fruit and oak, while leaving a long creamy finish.

It’s no real surprise that Starward Vitalis is sitting at the top of our list for this month. When Starward founder and self-proclaimed ‘chief bottle rinser’ David Vitale adds his surname – and seal of approval on a limited number of whiskies – there’s room for celebration. Starward has spent the last 15 years making one outstanding whisky after another and if that isn’t a milestone worth celebrating, we don’t know what is.

So what is ‘Vitalis’? It’s a combination of the brand’s best, starting life as red wine moves to apera (representing Solera), then tawny, bourbon, and finally rum. Although the brand has never released a rum-finished whisky,  single malt whisky this finish serves as a nod to the bountiful ingredients on offer in Australia, while acting as a hint to the endless possibilities the future holds.

Now for the important part, how on earth do you get your hands on Starward Vitalis? As bottles of the whisky will only be available in limited quantities, not everyone will be able to get their hands on this piece of history. If you want to be in the running, you can sign up for the ballot at the Starward website via the link below, with registrations opening from the 6th of October with the ballot drawn on November 4. For those who miss out, select bottles will become available at fine spirit retailers around the world from November 2022, so keep your eyes peeled.

2. LELO DOT

In Partnership with LELO

We hand-picked the LELO DOT clitoral pinpoint vibrator and clitoral stimulater because it was created with the sole of introducing partners to a new and powerful stimulus, one that keeps on giving and is impossible to resist. It’s designed for those desperate to push their sexual boundaries and pursue a different path toward pleasure whether you’re talking about exhilarating solo or unintrusive couple play.

The secret in the LELO DOT clitoral pinpoint vibrator and clitoral stimulater is its technology, whereby concentrating its power on one small pleasure point, the vibrator allows you to control the intensity and build-up toward orgasm with unseen precision by shifting the angle of the application and using its soft and bendable tip. It also takes advantage of the brand trademarked ‘Infinite Loop’ technology, inspired by the infinity symbol, that combines a unique elliptical motion
with the soft bendable tip to offer unmatched stimulation with absolute precision across the clitoris and any external erogenous zone.

Explore your infinite pleasure with LELO DOT clitoral pinpoint vibrator and clitoral stimulater that’s available now via the link below.

4. Kith x BMW i4 M50

And now for something slightly less affordable, by which we mean “not in our wildest dreams will we ever own one.” It re-teams automaker BMW with Kith founder Ronnie Fieg. This time around, Fieg set his visionary sights on the electric i4 M50 to spectacular results. Each vehicle is finished in the exclusive colour of Kith Vitality Green, with a caramel interior and signature Kith branding. The most talked-about ride of the range is a reimagined 1972 BMW 1602 Elektro, which harkens back to an electric predecessor and gives off all kinds of luxurious vintage vibes. Only seven models will be produced (we told you we’d never own one) and they’ll be available through auction.

6. Reese’s Big Cups with Cereal

Our sweet tooth beckons for the latest mash-up from candy-maker Reese’s. It squeezes crunchy bites of the brand’s Puffs Cereal into their milk chocolate peanut butter cups to generate a unique blend of texture and flavour. We’re wiping the drool from our mouths at the very thought of this lip-smacking sensation and its crunchy, creamy goodness. It’s scheduled to drop in November, i.e. after Halloween. Bold move, Reese’s, but we’ll pick some up anyway. Yum.

8. Ducati Multistrada V4 Rally

We’re feeling the wind in our hair just looking at the latest Multistrada motorcycle from Italy-based Ducati. What began with the first-generation model in 2003 continues to evolve and the V4 Rally is here to prove it. Features include new and improved Skyhook DSS EVO suspension, a larger 7.9-gallon tank, a skid plate, and a redesigned front end with daytime lamps and LED headlights. Both the driver seat and passenger seat are more ergonomic than previous iterations as well. Running on a 1,158cc V4 Granturismo engine and bolstered by all kinds of safety tech, this ride is every bit as awesome as it appears.

9. Daniel Arsham 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster

Three years in the making, the third collaboration between Porsche and American sculptor Daniel Arsham has finally been revealed. It completely reimagines a Porsche 356 by way of a Japanese influence, hence its nickname of “356 Bonsai.” Arsham began by stripping a 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster down to the metal and then building it out with an eye toward the ancient tradition of wabi-sabi, which cultivates beauty through imperfection. The resulting work of art is a fully functional car with a purposefully worn-down appearance. Fashion designers Motofumi ‘Poggy’ Kogi and Yutaka Fujihara were brought in to help with the interior, a colourful tapestry of Japanese fabrics and textiles. We wanty.

10. Sony FX30

It’s never been easier to make a professional-looking film than it is at this very moment, thanks in part to Sony’s latest camera. Dubbed the FX30, it joins their ongoing Cinema Line and costs significantly less than its popular predecessor (the FX3). Ultra-compact and capable of lens-swapping, its primary function is as a trusty B camera for supplemental footage. Expect a Super 35 sensor with 20.1MP for 4K cinematic output along with several shooting modes, amongst other things.
