Cardenal Mendoza Solera Spanish Brandy (750ml)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "No wallflower, this one. The intensity of the bouquet starts right with the pour as waves of prunes and raisins rise from the glass; air contact stirs deeper aromas, most notably orange rind, peppermint and roasted nuts. This rich, heavyweight brandy features layers of flavor, including cocoa, toffee, caramel, cream Sherry and oaky vanilla. Finishes as large and robust as it started." (12/2002) K&L Notes: There is no better way to spend a winter evening than sipping on a nice glass of brandy. Cardinal Mendoza Brandy is produced in Jérez, Spain. Founded in 1781, Cardi...

Ragnaud Sabourin K&L Exclusive Fontevieille #35 Cognac (750ml) Top Pick!
Ragnaud Sabourin K&L Exclusive Fontevieille #35 Cognac (750ml)

The vineyards of Ragnaud-Sabourin stretch far over the hills in Grand Champagne, 33 hectares of Ugni Blanc with a bit of Folle Blanche as far as the eye can see. This estate is known throughout France for having the goods, and we couldn't have been more impressed after visiting the property. Today the estate is run by Annie Sabourin, who is the daughter of the late Marcel Ragnaud, and she makes sure every drop lives up to the property's reputation.

Don Amado Rustico Mezcal (750ml)

Originally established in 1700, the distillery that produces Don Amado is renowned throughout the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca as one of the finest producers of premium mezcal. The distillery uses only estate-grown agave to ensure the plant's high sugar levels, and mixes steam into the agave's smoke roasting to smooth out the mezcal's characteristically smoky flavor. Made from 100% espadin that is double distilled and triple filtered for purity. Very top-end mezcal!

Mezcal Vago Elote Mezcal (750ml)

Mezcal Vago is the business creation of Judah Kuper in conjunction with his in-laws in Oaxaca: a family of distillers that has been making mezcal for generations. Vago marks the first time their products have been available commercially, having previously been consumed solely by friends and family. The Elote is the classic Espadin expression from Judah's father-in-law Aquilino García López macerated with toasted Mexican corn. Like other producers use Pechuga (chicken breast) to add flavor, the toasted corn creates a creamier, softer mouthfeel that is ins... Read More »

1973 Chateau Pellehaut 44 Year Old K&L Exclusive Tenareze Vintage Armagnac (750ml)

While Bas-Armagnac gets all the press, and the Haut-Armagnac gets completely ignored, the Tenareze region of Armagnac is quietly producing some of the best brandies in the world. Much like the Borderies region in Cognac, the Tenareze brandies seem to have more fruit and a bit more life than the more classic Armagnac style. We visited Chateau Pellehaut on our first day in Armagnac last January and were completely overwelmed by the quality of spirit. Using only new or first fill barrels for the beginning years of maturation, the Armagnacs have richness, ... Read More »

Sip straight or mix for the ultimate rum & Coke." (8/2014) K&L Notes: Mount Gay's newest release! A Bourbon barrel aged, spice-filled, Bourbon-esque rum at a super hot price.

Buffalo Trace Wheatley Small Batch Vodka (750ml)

This limited production Vodka from the exceptional Buffalo Trace Distillery is personally supervised by rockstar distiller Harlan Wheatley, who created the special recipe using wheat and several other grains. It's distilled on their unusual hybrid experimental still. The method for production revolves around highlighting the crisp, pure flavors of wheat grain.

Here is a fun one from our friends at the Creative Whisky Company. They made waves last year by bottling a single barrel of Irish Malt at full strength and 13 years of age.

Effen Vodka (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Initial nosing passes reveal a zesty and mildly spicy aroma that's focused on the cereal grain; the bouquet registers on the leaner, drier side of neutral grain spirits and as such is in direct opposition to other creamier, sweeter Dutch vodkas. Palate entry is moderately sweet, almost smoky; at midpalate, a flash of black licorice tempts the taste buds, then recedes, allowing the sweet, nearly smoky/pipe tobacco leaf taste to dominate."

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.

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.

Kilchoman "Machir Bay" Islay Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

It's no secret that we're big fans of Kilchoman distillery here at K&L. Our recent visit to the distillery on Islay really opened our eyes to the incredible job they're doing. Kilchoman is a tiny operation, producing on one still and malting whatever they can inside their humble barn. Because of their small scale, cost of production is higher and prices for their whisky have not been inexpensive.

Darroze Les Grand Assemblages "20 Year Old" Bas-Armagnac (750ml)

Absolutely stunning Armagnac with incredible richness, spice, and balance. I can't say it enough, so I'll say it again: every Bourbon drinker who's out there chasing things like Pappy 20 or BMH 16 should be stocking up on things like this instead. Or maybe I shouldn't say that because the people who actually drink Armagnac regularly will get pissy. In any case, this is a slam dunk spirit. Big wood, lots of spice and vanilla, and a rustic fruit character with seamless execution. My new favorite brandy for the moment. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

Nikka "Yoichi" Japanese Single Malt Whisky (750ml) Back In Stock!
Nikka "Yoichi" Japanese Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Yoichi age statements are gone for now, but if the whisky stays this good, I can live with that. Black earthy peat, smoldering fires, a turned-out pocket of briny seashells, whole lime, lemon twist, sugared orange, ground ginger, and licorice. Silky smooth, with light, fruity sweetness developing into tangy Spangles, kiwi, and lime juice. The smoky peat is the weft woven through the fruit structure’s warp. The finish is insanely long: menthol, peat, and leather. (JM, Winter 2016)" Whisky Advocate: "A compelling nose of black earthy peat, smoldering fires, a turned-out pocke ...Read More »

Rhum Clement VSOP Rum Vieux Agricole Martinique Rum (750ml)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "A muted aroma of brown sugar and milk chocolate with traces of peanut and black pepper. The elegant yet assertive palate entry is firm, peppery, moderately sweet, and cane-like; at midpalate the texture turns silky, semisweet and cocoa-like to the taste, and eminently elegant and sophisticated in style. Finishes sweet, honeyed, medium-bodied, svelte and utterly yummy." (8/2005)

Russell's Reserve Kentucky Single Barrel Rye Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $70) Top Pick!
Russell's Reserve Kentucky Single Barrel Rye Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $70)

Finally, after almost eight years of a serious Kentucky rye shortage, Wild Turkey has given us whiskey fans something to get excited about that we can actually get! Introducing the new Russell's Reserve Single Barrel Rye Whiskey: a 104-proof blast of old-school Kentucky rye flavor, meandering from dill and freshly baked German rye bread, into a sweeter kiss of toasted oak and soft vanilla.

Venus Spirits Batch #2 Barrel Aged Gin (750ml)

Batch two of Sean Venus's tremendous gin uses juniper, cardamom, orange, fennel, coriander, bay leaf, sage, peppercorns, and ages that formula in American oak for a mellow and creamier profile. The orange really gives it a lift. A Negroni is definitely calling my name.
