Cut Spike Nebraska Single Malt Whiskey (750ml)

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. Distiller Mike Cunningham makes it with 100 percent malted barley that is fermented at Cut Spike’s sister company and brewery Lucky Bucket. I imagine this whiskey will get even better in the coming years, as the distillery develops older stocks, but even now ...Read More »

Gosling's Black Seal Bermuda Rum (750ml)

*Gold Medal - 2007 San Francisco World Spirits Competition* Gosling Brothers Ltd. imported its first barrels of Caribbean rum into Bermuda in 1860. Numerous different blends were tried until one was formulated and deemed ideal. The result was a well-aged, extremely dark rum, which the firm dubbed "Old-Rum". For over 50 years the rum was sold only by draught, with local patrons bring in their own bottles to be filled. The rum continued to be sold exclusively out of the barrel until the First World War, when the company began filling champagne bottles re... Read More »

Springbank 10 Year Old Campbeltown Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Smells of dried figs, sultanas, lime marmalade, sea breeze, green olive, lemon grass, malted milk and unsweetened coconut. The taste profile asserts itself in the forms of light caramel, paraffin and almond paste; at midpalate the spirit becomes more evident as the off-dry, malty, moderately salty flavor warms the tongue and throat. Concludes gracefully and elegantly, with a mild rush of heat and smoke." (6/2006) Whisky Advocate: "Thick barley and viscous, with ever-present brine and berried fruit throughout. Underlying notes of waxy fruit (no doubt from some sherry cask ag ...Read More »

Marolo "Milla" Chamomile Liqueur (375ml)

Paolo Marolo is widely regarded as one of the best Grappa producers in the world. He is credited for being a leading innovator in Alba, the heartland of Grappa production, and for departing from the tradition of working with a continuous still (used for efficiency in mass production), choosing instead to work with a bain-marie discontinuous still. This alembic requires fresh pomaces and distills very small quantities much more slowly, but ultimately captures the yields a Grappa that is infinitely more pure, complex, and invigorating, with many dimensions...

Averna Amaro Siciliano (750ml)

On the palate, it's a wash of espresso, hazelnut and cola, with a pleasantly fleeting sweet-ness followed by a long, herbal finish. (KN)" (4/2014) K&L Notes: An hour or so has passed since your last spoon full of smashed yams, your concluding hunk of brioche stuffing, your final, fateful bite of tryptophan-laden turkey, and yet you cannot pull yourself from the table. You are full, beyond full. Never fear, Averna is here! Leave it to the Sicilians to come up with the ultimate in stomach soothing digestive... Read More »

Raymond Ragnaud Pineau des Charentes

One of the most overlooked spirits in the world is France's light and slightly-sweet aperitif - Pineau des Charantes. Made from sweetened grape must and a bit of young Cognac, the Raymond Ragnaud is perhaps the best expression of the style we carry. Imported directly for K&L by Charles Neal, the Ragnaud is best served slightly chilled either before a meal or after. A great substitute for sherry or port when the months turn warmer and you want something more refreshing.

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.

The palate entry is bittersweet, intensely herbal and earthy but refreshingly orange citrusy; the tasty midpalate is marked by heightened sweetness and a more mineral-like core flavor. Finish is savory and bittersweet." (12/2006) K&L Notes: According to a highly trusted source, this is the closest available substitute for the old incarnation of Amer Picon.

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.

White Oak Distillery Akashi Grain Whisky (750ml)

Located in the town of Akashi, near the famed city of Kobe in Japan, White Oak distillery has been in operation since 1919; although very few Americans are familiar with the whisky. Owned by Eigashima, it is actually the oldest operating distillery in Japan, having received its license four years before Yamazaki produced any whisky, despite the fact that it would be another forty years before they actually used it. The non-age statement (NAS) grain whisky is light and fruity with a classic malty profile and a round, supple finish.

Fukano 12 Year Old Single Cask Japanese Whisky (750ml)

Fukano's first rice whisky with an age statement is another impressive addition to a line-up that has been a big success thus far at K&L. Full of oak flavor and plenty of vanilla from the extended time in wood, this doesn't have the sweetness or the extra heft that some of Fukano sherry matured editions have exhibited, but the balance is much more in line with what one would expect from a classic malt whisky. It's another fun and curious look into the future of rice spirits from Japan.

Wild Turkey does things a bit different than most of the other industrial distillers in Kentucky. They're committed to certain quality standards that other distillers have deemed inefficient to continue in the modern whiskey era. Even with the newly constructed distillery, where the Russell's (Jimmy, Eddie, and Bruce) produce the most efficient and consistent whiskey they possible can, they refuse to give up certain practices that they believe to be crucial to the character and quality of the special Wild Turkey legacy.

Prized for its ability to highlight spices, citrus and chocolate, the spirit, which was traded by the Dutch East India Company, was especially popular in the heyday of the "Punch"--between the late 17th and 19th centuries.

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "While 'extra finished' for two years in ruby Port casks, the impact on the spirit is minimal, imparting a rose-gold hue and a shadow of red berry flavor. Though it lacks the 'wow factor' of the Nectar d’Or, it’s still quite good: Expect a warm, fruity scent with a hint of cedar and a smooth caramel-honey flavor with baking spices on the finish." (12/2011) Whisky Advocate: "Finished in port casks. Like the Nectar D’or above, this expression adds lushness, body, and a sweet complexity (but with darker fruit and spice than the Nectar D’or) while still allowing Glenmorangie’s c ...Read More »

Beefeater London Dry Gin (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* Setting the benchmark for London dry-style gins, look for a fresh, clean scent and flavors of lemon peel and juniper, accented by white pepper, ginger, cayenne and coriander before fading to zingy lemon and a mildly sweet exit. 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. From the Beverage Testing Institute: "93 points--*Exceptional and a Best Buy*-- Vibrant aromas of citrus custard pastry, juniper and citrus blo... Read More »

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.

Brennivin Icelandic Aquavit (1L)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Nuanced and palate-cleansing, look for a mild, savory scent and bracing notes of dill, fennel seed and pine, plus a brisk, zingy finish that suggests caraway-seeded rye bread. Pair this refreshing sip with herring or other savory bites. (KN)" (11/2016) K&L Notes: Brennivin is Iceland's most classic tipple. The stark black label and intense flavor have given rise to the nickname "Black Death," but the traditional Icelandic "schnapps" is all about celebrating life! Distilled from grain and flavored with caraway, it does not have any sugar added after distillation and t... Read More »
