Johnnie Walker Blue Blended Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $180)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Featured as a blend of Johnnie Walker's rarest whiskies, this Scotch billows with sweet cigar smoke from the very first sip. Underneath that, look for vanilla, oak and dry cocoa, finishing dry and spicy with cigar wrapper, allspice and clove, plus a mouthwatering saline note. (KN)" (12/2014) K&L Notes: Johnnie Walker Blue Label is crafted from the finest and rarest casks in the producer's extensive stocks to exemplify the art of blended whiskies. A whisky of power, smoothness, and signature smokiness is the result. Influences from across Scotland are layered in the p... Read More »

Espolón Silver Tequila (750ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "The mild aroma hints at green bell peppers; the flavor also has a distinct vegetal note, mixing bell and jalapeño peppers along with agave. Finishes long, with white pepper and ginger sparks. (KN)" (11/2014) K&L Notes: Espolón tequila is finally back in the U.S. with a fantastic new package and a new unbelievable price. The label is an ultra-cool "Dia de los Muertos" style mural, which immediately catches the eye. The price tag is more than reasonable, so that's two for two. If you actually get around to tasting it, then you're going to experience the ultimate trifec... Read More »

Carpano Punt e Mes Vermouth (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This aroma of this sweet vermouth suggests dark berries and savory spices. The first sip is sweet, rich and plummy, with flickers of juicy orange. The long finish is shored up with baking spice and dried thyme. Recommended for cocktails." (4/2014) K&L Notes: Punt e Mes is an Italian vermouth which is dark brown in color and has a bitter flavor. "Punt e mes" literally means "point and a half" in Piedmontese and owes its name to a sudden raise of the stock market (naturally, of a point and a half) which greatly benefited the Carpano distilleries, which then created the...

Glendronach 12 Year Old Distillery Bottling Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "Nicely sherried. Rich, with maple syrup, honey-drenched citrus, sultana, and a good dried oak spice finish for balance. Well done for a 12 year old, and definite competition for Macallan of the same age. (Vol. 19, #2)" K&L Notes: Glendronach was one of our favorite distilleries on our recent trip to Scotland and this 12 year is the best whisky that no one is drinking. Soft, supple, rich, and complex, and finished in PX sherry butts for a kiss of sweetness. This is my new house whisky and I can't recommend it highly enough.

High West Double Rye Whiskey (750ml)

90 points Whisky Advocate: "A blend of two straight whiskeys: a very young 2 year old high rye content whiskey and a 16 year old rye whiskey with a lower rye content. Perhaps the spiciest American whiskey I have ever tasted, yet at the same time, quite tame and mellow. Complex notes of mint, clove, cinnamon, licorice root, pine nuts, and dark chocolate, with a surprising dose of gin botanicals throughout. A soft underbelly of caramel, sweet corn, and soothing vanilla provides an interesting counterpoint. Very easy-drinking, too (hard to believe it’s 46%). Intriguing, and a must-try ...Read More »

The deep amber color prepares the nose for what promises to be an exciting ride. Aromas of ginger, plums, cinnamon, fresh-baked cornbread, and fresh-squeezed cherries.

(7/2011) K&L Notes: We love promoting high quality products made here in the USA. Blue Ice Vodka is 100% Potato Vodka grown and distilled in Rigby, Idaho, which is about 200 miles east of Sun Valley. It is hand-crafted from Idaho's famed Russet Burbank potatoes and water sourced from the melting of the Rocky Mountain snowcaps. This produces a rich, mellow flavor with a hint of sweetness.

Wine & Spirits: "Here’s an unusual one: a single malt whiskey made in the Sandhills of Nebraska. While it’s barely two years old, it’s already showing a depth more common in much older spirits, with sweet woodsy scents, poached pear flavors and butterscotch notes rounded out with a toasty brown-butter-like richness.

Pernod (750ml)

Pernod's distinctive flavor comes from the distillation of star anise with a number of aromatic herbs and plants.

Now absinthe free, this legendary product has become one of the best-known digestifs available today.

The amber spirit opens with a smoky aroma that's underpinned by vanilla and light floral notes. There's plenty of peat on the palate too, backed by olive brine, espresso and chocolate characteristics.

Tequila Tapatio Blanco (1L)

"Tapatio" is a word that refers to a man from Jalisco, the Tequila-producing state in Mexico. In this case, it refers to Don Felipe Camarena, who opened the La Alteña distillery in 1937 where his grandchildren now make Tapatio tequila. The family has roots of making tequila that reach back to the 1800s, but the family's destillery was destroyed during the Mexican Revolution. The blanco is wonderfully vibrant with plenty of spice and a clean finish. Wonderful for sipping or for a killer margarita.

Beefeater London Dry Gin (750ml)

At 47% abv it reads a little hot, but it's ideal for drinks with a bit of dilution, like a classic Gin & Tonic. (KN)" (9/2016) K&L Notes: *Gold* 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Chartreuse Yellow (375ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The nosing passes pick up smells of aniseed, cardamom, licorice, hay, white pepper, floral/viny scents along with coriander, sage, and thyme. The palate entry is sweet, floral, peppery, and viny; the midpalate features fennel, rosemary, allspice, and bark. Ends up herbal sweet." (2/2007) K&L Notes: A softer sweeter version of the green. Always a pleasure mixed up or even on the rocks.

Lucano Amaro (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Deep purple-brown in the glass, the aroma mixes jammy cherry and raspberry with eucalyptus. The palate walks the line between lightly sweet and lightly bitter, mingling herbaceous root beer notes with faint but refreshing mint and a mildly bitter edge. Recommended as a digestif or for cocktail mixing (i.e. Negroni-style drinks). (KN)" (4/2016) K&L Notes: This traditional Amaro from the far-flung Basilicata region is made in the most traditional manner.
