Potocki Polish Rye Vodka (750ml)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet is subtle and alluring, with distant notes of buttered popcorn and escarole broth; aeration stimulates aromas of peanut butter, rye toast and damp cobblestone. Silky palate entry is slightly sweet, concentrated and grainy; at midpalate, the flavor turns drier, lightly spiced and almost fruity (as in dried fruit). Aftertaste is long and spicy. Well crafted and quality driven." (6/2004) K&L Notes: Made from 100% Polish rye, the Potocki vodka might be the best vodka we carry. It's the cleanest, most pure form of vodka I've ever had the chance to taste and I ... Read More »

Casa Dragones Blanco Tequila (750ml) (Previously $65) Top Pick!
Casa Dragones Blanco Tequila (750ml) (Previously $65)

The magnificent Casa Dragones has been blowing it up in the high-end tequila market. They've finally made their exquisite low-land tequila available to the masses. This surprisingly approachable blanco has all the finesse and structure of the Joven, but without the sweet vanilla and spice oak. Those shows tons of apple and pear, with slight whiffs of the minerally vegetable that we expect from a lowland. On the palate it's clean and bright with lovely sweet fruit and only a slight cracked pepper quality. Ultimately, a fine follow up to a very difficult t... Read More »

Tanqueray "Bloomsbury" Limited Edition Gin (1L)

The newest incarnation of Tanqueray's limited edition gin series is here, a la the Malacca and Old Tom in recent years. The Bloomsbury is an homage to Charles Waugh Tanqueray, the son of founder Charles Tanqueray, and his recipe for gin dating back to the 1880s, when the distillery was located in Bloomsbury, London. Using a heavy juniper berry formula, along with coriander, angelica, winter savoury and cassia bark, the result is a delicately fragrant spirit with a lovely balance of flavor. The juniper is front and center giving the Bloomsbury a classic L... Read More »

Glengoyne 21 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $169)

The Glengoyne 21 year is one of the biggest deals in the world of Scotch, from a splendid distillery in the lower Highlands. Aged in Oloroso sherry casks, this 21 year production is normally sold for at least $170. But we have a crazy deal with the distributor to get the price way, way down. We'll have this price until current stocks run out, so get it while the gettin' is good. (David Othenin-Girard, K&L Spirits buyer)

Plymouth Navy Strength English Gin (750ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "While regular-strength Plymouth is relatively neutral and cocktail friendly, this higher-octane gin, also made in England, shows loads of citrus, floral and juniper-pine notes. (KN)" (5/2015) K&L Notes: 94 points Ultimate Spirit Challenge 2015: "Excellent, Highly Recommended. Tasting Notes: Beautifully grainy and crisp with scents of pine needle, orange blossom, a dried herb melange, juniper, and dried flowers.

Redbreast "Lustau Edition" Sherry Finished Irish Whiskey (750ml)

93 points Whisky Advocate: "The 120 year old sherry house Lustau originally operated as an almacenista, but now produces a broad portfolio of wine styles in Jerez. The nose is intensely fragrant, bursting with fat dates and squidgy prunes, red apple and Battenburg cake. It’s fruity, yet bone dry, with oak, walnut, and spices.

2009 Talisker 6 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" Single Sherry Barrel Single Malt Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2009 Talisker 6 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" Single Sherry Barrel Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Of the few young Talisker casks we're been able to procure over the years, this one tastes the most like what we expect from the Skye producer. It's loaded with equal parts salt, smoke, fruit, and sweet malt character with a spray of sea water on the finish, reminiscent of the rugged island terrain. Finding independent editions of Talisker is not an easy task in this market, so we're keen to jump on any opportunity that arises, but when the cask itself is a refill sherry hogshead rather than just a standard oak cask, our enthusiasm rises even further.

Lustau Vermut de Jerez (750ml)

The wonderful Vermut de Jerez from Lustau is the result of two great Spanish beverage houses coming together to create something superfluously good. Lustau, the storied producer of Sherry and The Caballero Family who have specialized in liquors since 1830. The result is an enchanting mixture of Jerez' great wine and classic Vermouth herbs and botanicals. The rich dark fruit and zippy structure of the wine blends perfectly with the bitters herbs like wormwood and gentian, while the aromatic depth of the coriander, angelica and orange peel round out the pa...

Destileria El Ranchito has been owned by Feliciano Vivanco since the post-revolutionary period of 1919-1929. They hold 2,000 acres of estate grown agave and distill everything in traditional pot stills. Their fermentation process is what makes them very unique - their yeast and their climate creates a bready banana nut aroma and flavor. This is an incredibly understated reposado that absolutely with a unique and mild-mannered profile. Nutty, bready, with cinnamon bursts and spicy cloves on the palate.

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Attention wine lovers: this fab bottling with the cowboy label is made with a blend of straight rye whiskies finished in two wine casks, formerly holding vermouth and Syrah. The result is a deep ruddy amber hue and a strikingly concentrated flavor profile. Look for warming layers of caramel, toffee and espresso, drying to leather, zingy orange peel and spice.

Mathilde Blackcurrant/Cassis (375ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "Dark purple, nearly opaque, with a wine-like scent. Warm and rich, this black currant spirit coats the tongue and palate with big, grape-berry flavors. It’s best lightened with bubbly, as in a Kir royale." K&L Notes: There may be no better aperitif for an outdoor spring meal than a glass of dry rosé. Then again, we would not sniff at a chilled Kir, either. Made with any ol' simple white wine (Aligoté is the traditional choice, but a Mâcon or Pinot Blanc work just fine) and the addition of a healthy dash of Crème di Cassis, a Kir is refreshing, palate awakening and th...

Almond fudge and a hint of espresso add intrigue, while dry wood spice on the finish underpins the whisky’s characteristic sweetness. Contemplative and complex.

Leopold Bros. Aperitivo (750ml)

If you're a Campari fan, but have never been able to find something outside of the Italian legend that scratches that same itch, then this might be the one thing that finally captivates you. The Leopold brothers have gone back to the drawing board and created an all natural version of the bitter aperitivo that uses real cochineal (like Campari used to) to color the liquid and brings a much bolder, more bitter flavor. It mixes like a DREAM into a Negroni and works wonders in an Americano. If you think you've got the Negroni cocktail mastered, think again.... Read More »

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.

Then they add more peels, spices, botanicals, etc. A small amount of sugar is used to balance the bitter and stabilize the color. This is the Franco-phonic answer to Amaro and it is so so good. Truly a special treat for anyone smart en... Read More »

Ancho Reyes Ancho Chile Liqueur (750ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Though it's made with ancho chiles, this liqueur is modest on the spice scale. Caramel-y brown in the glass, look for a lightly herbaceous aroma similar to root beer and rounded flavors that mix caramel and cocoa with raisin and cinnamon heat, with a faint smokiness on the finish. Particularly harmonious mixed in cocktails with brown spirits like whiskey. (KN)" (2/2016) Wine & Spirits: "Made in the Barrio del Artista in Puebla, Mexico, since 1927, Ancho Reyes is a spicy ancho chile–based liqueur that actually tastes like real peppers. The peppers set fi re to your mouth, b ...Read More »

West Cork 12 Year Old "Port Cask Finish" Limited Edition Single Malt Irish Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $60)

The West Cork distillery started as a pet project by John O’ Connell, Denis McCarthy and Ger McCarthy in 2003 in Union Hall, West Cork. In 2013 after much expansion WCD moved to a larger distillery in Skibbereen, West Cork where it now resides. It now operates as only one of the few independent distilleries in Ireland. A trio of limited 12 year old releases has just trickled into the U.S. and we've been told this will be it as far as inventory until late in 2018.

Laphroaig "Quarter Cask" Islay Single Malt Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Laphroaig "Quarter Cask" Islay Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

91 points Whisky Advocate: "The whisky begins sweet and creamy, with notes of vanilla, honey, and ripe malt (reminiscent of a malting floor). Then the Laphroaig signature peat smoke, seaweed, tar, and medicinal notes emerge. Bottling at 48% and without chill-filtering keeps the whisky from being dulled down. A whisky that is very dynamic. Nicely done. (Vol. 15, #2)" Wine Enthusiast: "Bold and overwhelmingly smoky, this golden single malt was matured twice, first in large casks and then transferred to smaller “quarter casks,” for more contact with the barrel wood. Look for plenty of peat smoke on the n ...Read More »

Dudognon "Reserve" Cognac (750ml)

Wine Spectator: "Cognac Dudognon Réserve Grande Champagne reflects the very core of Grande Champagne's potential in its silky, layered glory." (12/2014) K&L Notes: The Dudognon family has produced Cognac in the small town of Lignieres-Sonneville since 1776. This region is the heart of the famed Grande Champagne of Cognac. Spirits from this premier cru are especially renowned for their tremendous length. While many Cognacs are laden with permitted additives (sugar, boisé, caramel), the only additive used in Dudognon Cognacs is water: because of this, their color is fairly light, their...
