Aberlour "A'Bunadh" Cask Strength Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Aberlour "A'Bunadh" Cask Strength Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

96-100 points Wine Enthusiast: "Intriguing and challenging bouquet of aromas of roasted nuts, old leather, black pepper, old oak and dried fruit. Palate entry is aggressive in spirit, but sweet and pruny; midpalate is drier and features tastes of leather and grain. Aftertaste teems with oak resin, hard cheese (meaning, rancio), candied nuts, candied fruit and dark honey. Add mineral water." (12/2009) Whisky Advocate: "Very sweet, with thick hard toffee, stewing dates and figs, molasses, and rum raisin ice cream, before some dark chocolate, dried mint, and orange peel. The palate is a different beast. It i ...Read More »

Hendrick's Scottish Gin (750ml) Top Pick!
Hendrick's Scottish Gin (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This gin has a fierce following, in part because of its quirky brand personality (see the Monty Python-esque website) and aggressive marketing among bartenders. But it lives up to the hype. Some might expect a more concentrated rosewater-cucumber profile, but it's relatively subtle, with just a hint of cucumber mingling with juniper in the aroma, and white pepper, citrus and floral notes on the lingering finish. (KN)" (4/2012) K&L Notes: This unique, handcrafted gin has been infused with cucumber and rose petals. Very aromatic with a smooth sweet flavor and very long... Read More »

Enmore 25 Year Old "Golden Devil" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Guyana Rum (750ml) New!
Enmore 25 Year Old "Golden Devil" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Guyana Rum (750ml)

Enmore was once the home of El Dorado's famed wooden coffey still, but the distillery was closed in 1993 and all of the equipment was eventually moved to DDL's main Diamond site where all the former Guyana distilleries are now consolidated. This single barrel edition, distilled in 1992, represents one of the last runs at the former site and for serious rum fans these lost distillates are as collectable as can be. This particular rum, however, comes not from the wooden coffey still at Enmore, but rather a single pot still, potentially the wooden pot moved... Read More »

Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This uncut, barrel-strength bourbon is bold and flavorful. The caramel aroma is rich and luxe. On the palate, it’s quite tannic and drying, but the flavor shines through, showing toffee, caramel and dried cherry, with a spicy finish of clove, dried fig and date. The alcohol feels remarkably balanced despite the high proof. It needs no adornment: just add a chunk of ice and enjoy. (KN)" (9/2014) 91 points Whisky Advocate: "If Picasso sketched bourbon, it would look like Booker’s, with deep golden and auburn hues. But higher-proof color can deceive. Not here.

Michter's US #1 Small Batch Bourbon (750ml) Top Pick!
Michter's US #1 Small Batch Bourbon (750ml)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet has a dry, grainy aroma which is accented by peppery/spicy scents. The palate entry is surprisingly sweet and corny, considering how dry the aroma is; the midpalate point is deep, corny sweet, sap-like and a bit syrupy. Ends up well and balanced, with a backnote of dried red fruit (raisins, prunes). *Superb/Highly Recommended*" (12/2007) K&L Notes: The Michter's name has been synonymous with great whisky since the 1950s. While the famous whiskey is no longer distilled at the famous Schaefferstown Distillery in Pennsylvania, the legacy lives on. Current ow... Read More »

Cocchi Vermouth di Torino (750ml)

Produced in the historic Asti region outside of Torino, this Moscato-based vermouth is a true Vermouth di Torino - one of the only two protected geographical indications of origin for vermouth. The rich, vibrant flavor profile offers complex notes backed by a balanced bitter undertone. Enjoy neat or mixed in numerous classic cocktails. To celebrate its 120th anniversary, the House of Cocchi has resumed production of its original recipe for Vermouth di Torino, first offered in 1891.

Daniel Bouju "K&L Exclusive" Cognac Fines Saveurs (750ml) Top Pick!
Daniel Bouju "K&L Exclusive" Cognac Fines Saveurs (750ml)

Francois Bouju is the man running the show these days at Bouju Cognac. He's incredibly nice, knows a lot about distillation, taught us a great deal about the region and its wines, and impressed us beyond any expectation we had going in to our appointment. His vines are planted in the best soils: rich limestone which helps to preserve acidity in the fruit, and he is a stickler for detail. The reason the Grand Champagne region makes what is considered the best Cognac is because the soil creates grapes that are fully ripe with high acidity levels and low al... Read More »

High West "American Prairie" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

There are times when flavor alone means everything and that was certainly the case while choosing this single barrel of High West "American Prairie," a blend of straight bourbons from MGP in Indiana and what's long been rumored to be Four Roses (whether that's still the case in the new Constellation era, I don't know). What I do know, however, is that about two years ago an empty barrel of the High West "Rendezvous" rye was filled with a finished batch of "American Prairie" and it was allowed to sit for an additional year and a half, marrying the flavors...

1995 John McCrae 22 Year Old "K&L Exclusive - Sovereign" Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

In order to understand the secret contained inside this very special Sovereign bottle, you have to understand a bit about how the Scotch industry works and what "teaspooning" means. There’s a long history of barrel trading and brokering between blenders and distilleries in Scotland, and some producers are very protective of their name brand. As you’ve likely noticed, we’ve been able to secure single-cask selections from top names like Bowmore, Caol Ila, and Highland Park over the years, and those distilleries allow us to use the name, but others take mor...

It has a light touch, from the citrus scent to the sweet flavor that finishes with a bouquet of rose petals, violets and honeysuckle. One of a trio of new gins from this small-batch distiller.

David Nicholson 1843 100 Proof Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

I put a few glasses of the David Nicholson 1843 in the hands of my assistants here at K&L and told them it was a sample from a new Weller 107 single barrel that I had just purchased. Their eyes lit up and not one of them assumed the whiskey wasn't what I said it was. In fact, they were downright stoked about the quality. Then I immediately confessed. Alas, it was not Weller 107, but rather a new 100 proof wheated Bourbon from Luxco, the folks behind Rebel Yell and Ezra Brooks. How much would it cost, they asked? A cool $26.99, I replied.

Fukano K&L Exclusive Single Cask #2827 Japanese Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Fukano K&L Exclusive Single Cask #2827 Japanese Whisky (750ml)

When I first met Fukano-san over some very tasty Korean BBQ, her air of sophistication and elegant demeanor belied her ability to drink the entire crew under the table. While she was rather restrained that evening, but the other distillers regailed me with stories about her prowess. They had great respect for her not only because she was champion of the bar, but also because they knew her distillery is producing some of Kumamoto's finest spirit. Fukano-san is the head of one of the Kuma Valley's best producers, famous for a local Shochu called Saiba as w... Read More »

Pierre Ferrand "1840 Formula" 90 Proof Cognac (750ml)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This pours a bright amber color, with restrained but beautiful aromas of white flowers, orange, peach and honey. On the palate, it's full-bodied, with bitter orange peel and stone fruit flavors, with lingering vanilla and oak. The alcohol feels relatively balanced, but it creeps up on you. This needs dilution, so use it in punches as intended and you'll be fine. (KN)" (12/2013) K&L Notes: *94 Points, Highly Recommended* from the 2012 Ultimate Spirit Challenge.

Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva Venezuelan Rum (750ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet offers integrated scents of roasted chestnut, dried tobacco leaf, maple, orange zest, brown sugar, cinnamon and egg cream. The palate entry is curiously medicinal; the midpalate improves as the taste includes bittersweet flavors of old oak, wood resin, molasses and tree sap. Concludes intensely sap- and maple-like."

Dolin Dry Vermouth de Chambery (375ml)

Made to the same set of recipes since 1821, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry has long been the benchmark for fine French Vermouth. Made with fine wines of the region and botanicals found in the alpine meadows above Chambéry, together they impart a fresh and elegant nose, with a subtle and complex palate. Ideal as an aperitif or in cocktails. In the late 19th century, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry won medals in Paris, London, St. Louis and Philadelphia and in 1932 earned Chambéry France's only Appellation d’ Origine for Vermouth.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) (ships in a magnum box) (Elsewhere $30)

This Bourbon offers lots of fruit on the palate--orange, apricot, tropical fruit--that finish long, with caramel and a bracing burnt-orange peel note. (KN)" (9/2014) Wine Spectator: "The dry, spicy, almost austere nose has a promising note of corn, and it delivers on the palate: sweet corn, berries and apricot, a touch of leather and cinnamon, with a bright, spicy finish. A mix of pot-still and column-still whiskeys." (2/2012) K&L Notes: *Double Gold Medal* at the 2013 San Francisco World Sp... Read More »

Balvenie "Doublewood" 12 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Silky and downright succulent, this Scotch is made with two types of oak casks—as the DoubleWood name suggests—but it’s really all about the influence of the ex-Sherry cask. Aromas suggest golden raisins and dried apricots. The silky palate starts out moderately smoky, but glides into a richer, honeyed, nutty profile that finishes with cocoa and clove accents.

Auchentoshan "Bartender's Malt - Edition 1" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) New!
Auchentoshan "Bartender's Malt - Edition 1" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Auchentoshan named this whisky the "Bartender's Malt" because it was designed and blended by a team of twelve different bartenders from all over the world who helped to select the barrels. Here's the really compelling part: they used single malt whisky from the 1970s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, and current decade in the blend, from ex-Bourbon, ex-Sherry, ex-wine, and even German oak barrels! I've said it before and I'll say it again: innovative blends like this are what's going to drive the business moving forward, in my opinion, especially in a market where singl... Read More »

The more aggressive notes of coal tar, damp kiln, anise, and smoked seaweed are supported by an array of fruit (black raspberry, black cherry, plum), dark chocolate, espresso, molasses, bacon fat, kalamata olive, and warming cinnamon on the finish.

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.

Clearly the vessel had been used a number of times before it was filled with cask strength whisky from Islay, offering little in terms of richness and weight.

Lively nose, good rye snap and spice, a bit of mint and oaky edge. Not hot, well-behaved on the tongue, and happily gives back everything taken on the nose. Sweet, spicy, ...Read More »

Highland Park 12 Year Old Isle of Orkney Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 50 Spirits, 2011* Elegant, light and pretty. This amber spirit has a light, briny vanilla scent and a silky feel. A veil of smoke rises through the Scotch (but fades out fast), leaving behind a sweet nutty, vanilla finish." (12/2011) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "Highland Park 12 Year Old boasts individuality and complexity, thanks in part to the use of Orcadian peat in the distillery floor maltings and the employment of ex-sherry casks for maturation. The nose is fragrant and floral, with hints of heather and some spice. Smooth and honeyed on the palate, with citrus fruits, malt, ...Read More »

Amaro Montenegro Di Bologna (750ml)

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of the lightest and gentlest amari, this amber spirit delicately mixes sarsaparilla-like herbal notes and honey sweetness with just the right bitter edge. Mix it into cocktails—mixologists love this amaro—or sip it as a delightful digestif." (4/2014) K&L Notes: Amaro Montenegro is an Italian bitter herbal liqueur first concocted in 1885. The marvelous and unique combination of ingredients from all over the world process make Amaro Montenegro the classic product that D'Annunzio called "liqueur of the virtues".

Amara Sicilian Amaro d'Arancia Rossa (750ml)

The Amara Amaro d'Arancia Rossa is easily the best amaro we have in stock, bringing new life to a category that was just beginning to get a bit saturated. Made in Sicily from blood oranges grown near the volcanic slopes of Mt. Etna, it's a citrus-dominated liqueur with only a slight bitterness that marries well with hints of baking spice. The finish is like the purest expression of citrus peel I've ever tasted in a spirit, giving the Amara a versatility that is simply off the charts. You can sip it after dinner as a digestivo, add soda water to make a sp... Read More »

Tequila Fortaleza is produced entirely within the walls of their estate, using centuries old traditional methods which, although are very labor intensive, create a tequila which is unequaled in taste and smoothness.

Casamigos Blanco Tequila (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Co-owned by actor George Clooney and nightlife impresario Rande Gerber, this blanco is smooth and light. The aromas are restrained, but on the palate look for mild agave sweetness backed by lemon zest, ginger and white pepper sparks, plus a candied lemon-peel note on the gentle exit. (KN)" (5/2014) K&L Notes: Very rarely does a product like this come to our attention without a sneer or a snicker. But when "The Cloons" writes his name on something, you better show it some respect. So, with that tiny amount of atypical goodwill attached, we raised a glass of this new t... Read More »

Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon (750ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This skillfully blended Bourbon has a gentle vanilla fragrance and plenty of vanilla, pecan pie, maple sugar, oak and lemon-peel flavor. (KN)" (9/2016) Whisky Advocate: "A soft, delicate bourbon -- especially when compared to its single barrel siblings here. Subtle notes of candied fruit and creamy sweet notes (vanilla, coconut, light toffee, and caramel corn) are nicely interwoven. Some integrated, gently-dried spice dances throughout and lingers on the finish. An easy-to-embrace bourbon with nice balance. (Vol. 16, #4)" K&L Notes: Named American Whiskey Distiller of the Year 2010, 201... Read More »

Noah's Mill Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "From the folks at Willett distillery, Noah’s Mill has less than 20 barrels in a batch and will include 15 year old barrels in the dump. 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. The warm palate packs caramel, nutmeg, and vanilla with lovely cinnamon on the finish. Sourced whiskey. (FM, Spring 2016)" Wine Spectator: "A fiery oak nose eventually yields sweet corn, herbal grass notes and light vanilla. Laser-intense flavors of mint, rye and eau-de-vie- ...Read More »

Four Roses Yellow Label Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* This mellow Bourbon is scented with vanilla and a hint of stone fruit. On the palate it's light and creamy, with nuanced notes of vanilla, almond and pecan, plus a gentle baking-spice finish. Sip or mix. (KN)" (9/2016) Wine Spectator: "The nose is standard Bourbon: corn, vanilla, with notes of mint and oak dryness. On the palate, there's more corn, vanilla and a bit of cocoa; the mint is more pronounced. The finish shows off the oak. Simple, straightforward, unpretentious."
