9 LEICA M9 TITANIUM
Leica cameras have always been coveted. But add an
all-titanium model designed by the head of Volkswagen's design
group, and throw in a standard lens also built from solid titanium
and the bar is sky high. The ergonomic yet minimalist styling of
the M9 Titanium is pure Leica, but the refined materials look like

cameras are being created and go on sale this November. $26,500.
It’s aged for 10 years in sherry oak casks; it’s made from 100-per-

decanter; and, there are only 1,000 of them on the market. If the
Dos Lunas Gran Reserve is not the most refined and elegant
tequila out there, we can’t imagine what could top it. $2,500.

Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale was born in the barrels of Ireland’s oldest brewery but thanks to the infusion of brewing expertise from
the Guinness family at Diageo, Kilkenny is poised to be the next
stateside nitrogen explosion. By using beer gas (a mix of nitrogen
and carbon dioxide) Kilkenny retains the same silky smooth texture
Guinness is known for, but with its own red hue and distinct taste.

The difference between their original indoor three-screen simulator
and the new aboutGolf PGA Tour Compact SimSurround is just
10 feet. But it’s an important 10 feet. Because at 15 feet wide by
20 feet long and 10.5 feet high, this simulator now fits easily into
many residential homes. And the Compact SimSurround comes
uploaded with 29 courses and all the software, computer, turf and
screens you need to tee off. $62,000. aboutgolf.com
