Black Cow Vodka (750ml)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made from whey, this newcomer to the U.S. market has an appealing lushness. The aroma and flavor hints at coconut, marshmallow and vanilla, finishing with gentle sweetness and a mild peppery prickle. Producer recommends serving Dirty Martini-style with olive brine and a green olive. (KN)" (4/2017) K&L Notes: What's in a name? Much moo than you might guess. Located on England’s West Dorset coast, Black Cow Vodka produces the world's only "Pure Milk Vodka™" made entirely from the milk of grass-fed grazed cows. Indeed, the sugar in the milk is fermented with a special y... Read More »

Dolin Rouge Vermouth de Chambery (375ml)

Made from a recipe that dates back to 1821, using herbs and botanicals grown in the Alpine meadows of Chambéry, this is as authentic and traditional a Vermouth you can get. Tasting notes from the importer: "Dolin Vermouths are notably lighter, drier and less pungent than their larger commercial counterparts. The particular mixture of plants found near Chambéry give a fresh, restrained and elegant nose, with a subtle, complex bittersweet palate. Even the Blanc and Rouge retain great balance, with the sugar never cloying, and just enough bitterness to whet... Read More »

Rowan's Creek Bourbon (750ml)

Rowan’s Creek bourbon is stored in charred oak barrels and is hand-bottled at 50% alc./vol. (100 proof). This boutique bourbon is still made in small lots, batch-by-batch. Rowan's Creek takes its namesake from the creek that runs directly through the distillery. This creek still carries the best limestone spring water that is essential for making good bourbon.

Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old Highland Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "Along with Cragganmore, this is one of the underrated members of the original Classic Six. Quite why has always slightly baffled me. OK, it isn't smoky, but the nose has a deep, soft, honeyed sweetness: think caramelized fruits, hints of thick cream, and a light touch of fennel and sharp citrus. Thick in the center and very gentle, it's that chunkiness in the middle that is the secret to its beauty. (DB, Summer 2012)" Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* Opening aroma is assertive, dry, with peppery scents of barley husk, grainy oil and cracked wheat wafer; seven more minutes bring ...Read More »

John D. Taylor Velvet Falernum Liqueur (750ml)

Thick and sweet on the palate, but the lime juice acts as the perfect balance for the high-octane liquid sucrose. Scores of applications in cocktails." (6/2006) K&L Notes: Velvet Falernum is a longtime staple item of resorts and bars in Barbados, and today for its use in Tropical, Tiki and Caribbean drinks such as the Rum Swizzle, Mai Tai, Zombie, Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and the Corn n’ Oil.

John E. Fitzgerald "Larceny" Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* This small-batch bourbon uses wheat in place of rye to create a soft, rounded character. The mild crème brulee aroma leads into sasparilla and creamy caramel flavors. At 92 proof, it’s a wonder that the alcohol feels so moderate, but it makes its presence known in the cinnamon-firework finish. Attractive bottle design with clever keyhole label. (KN)" (7/2013) Whisky Advocate: "A new wheated bourbon from Heaven Hill, using wheat instead of rye in the mashbill, resulting in a smooth, easygoing whiskey.

Old Overholt Rye Whiskey 1Liter

Old Overholt is amongst the oldest more-or-less-continuously available distilled products in America. (They've operated for at least 150 years.) When one speaks of rye, others are most likely to think of this product, if they think of anything. Their Straight Rye is readily available at a moderate price. Overholt has a subtle nose with hints of raisin, fruit (orange perhaps), and almond. Overholt's taste is light, with slightly medicinal and bitter hints.

On a beautifully situated property overlooking the town of Montréal-du-Gers, lies the Château de Pellehaut.

Béraut's sons Mathieu and Martin take care of winemaking (the red, white and rose are all big sellers at K&L) and the élevage of Armagnac.

Benedictine Liqueur (375ml)

This true CLASSIC is a must have for any mixologist or amateur cocktail lover. This special french liquor was released in the 19th century by french industrialist vAlexandre Le Grand and it's actual connection to the Benedictine order is dubious at best, but the recipe is claimed to have been invented in 1510 by french monk Don Bernardo Vincelli. The main flavor components include Hyssop, Angelica, and Lemon Balm, but the other 24+ ingredients and the composition are a closely guarded trade secret.

John J. Bowman Single Barrel Virginia Straight Bourbon (750ml)

Distilled three times on a pot still like an Irish whiskey, Bowman Distillery in Virginia has been quietly churning out elegant Bourbon whiskey for years. Purchased by Sazerac in 2003, the operation has slowly been revamped to accommidate the drinking desires of the entire country, which is why we're finally seeing some Bowman whiskey here on the west coast.

The Collaboration series is the first release of whiskey from Kentucky's soon-to-be star Bardstown Bourbon Company, a project done in "collaboration" with Louisville brandy specialists Copper & Kings. Using 10 year old stocks of Bourbon distilled at MGP in Indiana, BBCo finished each of the whiskies for an additional 18 months in two different types of casks: American brandy and Muscat Mistelle.

Glenmorangie 18 year old Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $140)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The initial whiffs find layers of honey, flowers and light toffee; air contact stimulates aromas of pine needle, caramel, nougat, marzipan, chocolate orange and stewed apple. The palate entry is totally dry then turns bittersweet and pork rind-like; at midpalate tastes of burnt apple crisp, orange zest, fudge and candied nuts appear.

Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Rum Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The end result layers rich, mouth-coating dried apricot, honey and Sherry notes on top of Balvenie's usual caramel and light peat profile. It finishes flavorful, though with a distinct burst of alcohol warmth. (KN)" (12/2015) Whisky Advocate: "A new addition to the permanent Balvenie range. Lovely bright gold color.

Tariquet Bas "Classique" VS Armagnac (750ml)

Perhaps our best deal on brandy of any kind, this is outrageously smooth and supple to the point that I can't imagine anyone truly not enjoying it. The fruit is all handpicked and the Grassa family has been making it in a pot still since 1911. It spends only three years in barrel, which seems impossible when you feel its velvety texture in your mouth. The aromas are very delicate with dried apricots and caramel sifting gently in. The palate is lush with rich barrel flavors of baking spice. The finish has gobs of fruit, to the point that you'd think this ... Read More »

North Shore No. 6 Gin (750ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "This interpretation of a “modern dry gin” is spicy, potent and bright. It has an enticing grapefruit peel aroma. On the palate, alcohol heat leads, but then unfolds to show zingy citrus, anise and coriander. At 90 proof, there's plenty of alcohol presence, but it should stand up nicely to dilution in a long drink like a classic gin-and-tonic or Tom Collins. (KN)" (7/2014) K&L Notes: North Shore's Gin No. 6 is extremely smooth, with a complex balance of citrus, spice and floral notes.

Laphroaig "Lore" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Laphroaig "Lore" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Laphroaig's new Lore expression is a blend of up to 21-year-old bourbon casks, 9-year-old full-term quarter casks (whisky aged from day one), along with a few european oak sherry casks for fun. It stands out from the standard Laphroaig portfolio in a big way. It's richer, darker, more savory, and far more dense. It tastes like you're drinking a very old whisky while simultaneously taking a sip of something much younger. Unlike the bright, medicinal peat that explodes off the bat in the 10 year old, the Lore takes you much deeper into the peat bog with mo... Read More »

Grand Marnier (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Grand Marnier—or “GrandMa,” as some cocktail geeks gleefully shorthand it—remains one of the classics. Although it’s Cognac-based, it’s a versatile match for other spirits, too. The liqueur is extremely aromatic, with lots of sweet and bitter orange notes exploding out of the glass. Look for a warm, honeyed flavor and a nice burst of orange peel and spicy cinnamon and ginger on the long finish. (KN)" (2/2012) K&L Notes: The original.

Laird's 100 Proof Straight Apple Brandy (750ml)

Don't be fooled by the less expensive blended variety. This is the real deal and is 100% aged apple brandy, none of the neutral stuff. Apple Jack is America's Calvados, although you must only have the straight apple brandy to avoid the blends. This is a necessity for anyone creating an authentic bar. And if you don't have what it takes to make a delicious Jack Rose cocktail, or a Calvados Cocktail, then you don't have an authentic bar. Laird's is the Rittenhouse Rye of apple distillates.

Hayman's Old Tom Gin (750ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A relative newcomer to the gin landscape, this is the proper gin to use for a Tom Collins cocktail. It intentionally leans sweet, but it’s balanced with the right amount of alcohol bite, a lightly piny scent, and faint herbal and citrus peel notes. If using this 19th-century style sweetened gin for other cocktails, be sure to hold off on adding sugar.

Domaine Pacory "K&L Exclusive - Reserve" Domfrontais Cask Strength Calvados (750ml)

While we've long worked with Domfrontais distiller Lemorton for our regional Calvados needs, we recently discovered their neighbor in Mantilly: a producer called Pacory. One thing that separates the brandies of the Domfrontais from other AOC Calvados spirits is the heavy use of pears in the recipe. Domfrontais brandies generally have 60% or more pear distillate in the eventual blend, adding an entirely different dynamic to the flavor. We wanted to see if we could find something with a "high-pear" cepage, preferably with a little age. One of the interesti... Read More »

The exceptional Miltonduff distillery, located in the tiny hamlet of the same name, is a rarity on the independent bottler scene due to its importance in the Ballentine's blend. The blenders must have misplaced this cask because none of them need their Miltonduff this old! Legend says that Miltonduff is located in the old mill for the Pluscarden Abbey, which was erected near by in 1236.

Bottled at 62.7% cask strength, this is a punchier, more powerful expression of Bulleit than what we're used to. At over 120 proof, the whiskey really benefits from a few drops of water that help to coax out the softer vanilla and barrel oak flavors lying underneath all that heat. Drink with care!

One Barrel Belize Rum (750ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* The bouquet is basic but pleasing, with sweet molasses scents and some delightful cocoa and tobacco notes. The palate entry is surprisingly bittersweet and nearly dry; the flavor turns tobacco-like, almost smoky, yet appealingly sweet at midpalate. Finishes with simple, no-frills charm." (2/2008) K&L Notes: If you want a rum with pure tropical spirit, this may be it. The One Barrel rum, from the country of Belize, smells like a tropical breeze with its aromas of passion fruit, hibiscus and papaya. On the palate it is smooth and round, with just a hint of m...

ArteNOM "Seleccion 1146" Añejo Tequila (750ml)

Casa Tequileña is owned and operated by Enrique Fonesca, known as El Arquitecto. A fifth-generation grower and master distiller who holds one of the largest plots of agave in the industry, this añejo is made to showcase the oak without overshadowing the agave. The nose is amazing! Again, subdued and needing to be coaxed, but incredible when it finally arrives. Nutty aromas with toasted vanilla, but neither rich nor oaky. Warm baking spices on the palate, which is incredibly lean for an añejo! This is a blend of two- and three-year-old tequilas aged exc... Read More »

Santa Teresa 1796 Ron Antiguo de Solera Rum Venezuela (750ml)

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* The first couple of whiffs pick up toasty notes of caramel, almond butter, cotton candy and very old oak; with aeration, more profound aromas develop including saddle leather, vanilla, Sherry and dark caramel. Palate entry is perfectly balanced and sweet; by midpalate the flavor profile is honeyed, slightly cocoa-like, buttery to the feel and utterly decadent. Finishes long, layered, creamy and dark chocolate bittersweet." (6/2006) K&L Notes: Master of rums and the flagship of the house, Santa Teresa 1796 results from a careful blend of Santa Teresa’s fine... Read More »
