Image source: http://www.coolthings.com/jbl-pulse-led-speaker/

The JBL Pulse was one of the most awaited portable speakers of the year because it promised to be different from the vast variety of speakers that already exist in the market.

JBL Pulse introduced itself as not just any other portable Bluetooth audio device but as a mesmerizing display of LEDs that made your music experience much more alive than it has ever been.

The volume and audio quality of the Pulse are great enough to turn any room into a party with the lights adding to the mood. Even if all you need is a day of relaxation with music, Pulse will not disappoint you.

The Pulse is designed in a cylindrical shape, about 6 inches long and approximately 3 inches in diameter. Its design and size makes it easy to carry around with a style factor that cannot be ignored.

The LED display and speakers almost cover the entire device with the exception of a single vertical strip that holds the Micro USB charging point and an AUX port to connect another audio source directly. The charger for the speakers comes with a detachable USB cable that allows you to charge the device from your laptop if needed. The battery capacity of the speakers is 10 hours without the light and 5 hours with the light show.

The speaker area is covered by a firm metal mesh that is sleek enough to let the LED lights shine through and at the same time protect the internal components of the device. The main buttons of the device, such as Power, Volume, Bluetooth sync and LED controls are found at the lower end of the speakers.

Coming to the main attraction factor of the speakers, the LED lights; the Pulse has 5 different modes of light shows which you can select according to your preference. Two of the light modes work on real time, where they move according to the music being played. The LED lights have two equalizer themes, one that involves multiple bars of lights that move up and down the grid, the other is a single wide bar that spreads across the grid. The Pulse also allows users to choose their own colours for the light show.

The device also has a motion sensing mechanism where the orientation of the light changes according to the way the speakers are kept, vertical or horizontal.

A Royal Affair

793396_2_9999_med_v1_m56577569854986169

Image source: http://goo.gl/5oY4Hv

Royal Salute is a prestigious luxury Scotch Whisky brand manufactured by Chivas Brothers under the ownership of the French company Pernod Ricard. This rich blend is produced at the Strathisla distillery at Keith in Speyside, Scotland.

he first bottles of Royal Salute were produced on June 2, 1953, as a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II on the day of her coronation. Since then, the Whisky has represented itself in three different glazes, each denoting the precious stones of the Imperial State Crown – rubies, sapphires and emeralds.

Considering the history that Royal Salute shares with the Queen, it was no surprise that Chivas decided to launch ‘The Diamond Tribute’ by Royal Salute on the occasion of Queen Elizabeth II’s 62-round royal gun salute for the 60th anniversary of her coronation ceremony.  The Diamond Tribute was introduced at the Tower of London on June 4, 2013, and served at the reception in Her Majesty’s palace.

Marking the coronation anniversary of the Queen with the Diamond Tribute seemed to do justice, as this blend represents royalty in all its glory. Made by blending the most precious of aged Whiskies, this Chivas creation truly captures the rareness and exquisiteness that a diamond represents, making it the perfect royal affair. The whiskies in this blend come from a locked vault in the Royal Salute Strathisla distillery, where they are stored in guarded casks for a minimum period of 21 years.

Colin Scott, the master blender for Royal Salute, describes this Whisky as having “immeasurable depth, with rich aromas of peaches and sweet poached pears, complemented by a sensation of sherry, and a wonderful spicy liquorice tang. It has a long, sweet and luscious warmth to finish”.

The Royal Salute Diamond Tribute, according to Chivas CEO Christian Porta, is a luxury Whisky that is blended using a “combination of age and craftsmanship that gives it finesse and a rich complexity”.

If you are serious about your Whisky and love a touch of the royal life, then the Royal Salute Diamond Tribute awaits you.

The Diamond Tribute is available at the Bengaluru Duty Free store as well as its online store, at http://goo.gl/V7zqbq. Enjoy the exclusive offer of a free trolley bag with the purchase of a 70cls Royal Salute Diamond Tribute, only at Bengaluru Duty Free.
