This is a lot of wine for the money. It is bright and fresh with energy and focus. There are some nice dried citrus and savory notes, with a clean crisp finish that makes one want to reach for another glass.It is low in alcohol (11.5 ABV) and very easy to drink . Great alone, it will go well with light foods.

NETA Bicuishe Mezcal (750ml)
Review Date: 08-18-2019
This is very interesting and delicious. The nose in absolutely fantastic with a touch of smoke and bright floral and tropical fruit notes. The bouquet is layered and is very inviting. In the mouth the floral and fruit theme continues. By fruit, I mean, bright fruit flavors but not fruity or sweet. There are also savory notes, helping make this a very complex spirit. There is long finish.

Old Potrero "K&L Exclusive Barrel #12" 63.33% Single Malt Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml)
Review Date: 08-12-2019
Both of the single barrel offerings that are now in stock are unique and very good. Tasting them side by side shows why the single barrel bottlings are so interesting. Barrel #12 is elegant and a little lighter in body than barrel #13.Subtle spice and savory notes are present,wrapped up together with a pleasant sweetness. A splash of water gives it a creamy mouth feel. Barrel #12 can be enjoy with or without the addition of water.

Old Potrero "K&L Exclusive Barrel #13" 63.21% Single Malt Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml)
Review Date: 08-12-2019
It is very nice to be able to taste individual and unique single barrels of Old Potrero. Of the two offerings that are now in stock , they area both different from each other and very good. The barrel #13 is concentrated and rich, just layered with flavors and complexity. With a splash of water a hint of spice comes through. I think that one could drink this with or without water depending on what tastes one is looking for.

This delicious wine was one of the hits for me at a recent staff tasting.

Bardstown Bourbon Company - Fusion Bourbon (750ml)
Review Date: 06-29-2019
This is a delicious bourbon. The nose is sweet and light with a hint of vanilla. It is soft and easy to drink with layers of flavors. One of the most interesting and fun things about this whiskey is that on the side of the bottle is a list of the different whiskeys used to make this bourbon. Both purchased and Bardstown Distilleries own whiskeys are blended together and listed along with the mash bill . A great effort both in taste and in providing information about the product.

Douglas Laing's "The Gauldrons" Batch #1 Limited Edition Campbeltown Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 06-13-2019
Another great blend of single malts from the people at Douglas Laing. When master blenders like the Laings combine different single malts it brings out the best and most interesting flavors that the single malts have to offer. The Gauldrons is a very successful example of this. The nose is interesting and mysterious, with sweet notes and a hint of salt. In the mouth it is creamy, oily and complex with a sweet finish that has light smoke notes.

This delicious rum has a beautiful light color. In the mouth it was very soft and drinkable. It will go well in some cocktails but drinking it straight is an excellent option. It is pure and clean with layers of flavor. I did not pick up a lot of funk from the Hampden but nuance and expressive flavors . The rums from these two distilleries work well together.

Russell's Reserve Single Barrel "#17-927" (Rick House H, Floor 4, Row 21, Level 2) K&L Exclusive Kentucky Straight Bourbon (750ml)
Review Date: 05-16-2019
I tasted this at the same time as barrel #399. Both barrels are very different. Barrel #399 is classic and rich and barrel #927 is a more delicate bourbon. It is a lighter color and is pretty, subtle and complex. A touch of water opens it up and gives it a creamy mouth feel. If you are looking for a bourbon that is a little different this is a good one to try.

Review Date: 05-16-2019
One of the best things about working with spirits is to get the chance to taste single barrel products side by side. I tasted the Russell's barrel #339 at the same time as the barrel #927. They were both very different and delicious. The barrel #399 is a lusty and classic bourbon, rich and round packed full of brown sugar flavors. A touch of water opens it up. Barrel #927 is delicate and subtle.

Four Roses Small Batch Select Bourbon (750ml)

This is a blend of six and seven year old bourbons. For fans of Four Roses it is a must try, and for those who don't already know Four Roses bourbons, it is a chance to see how good this distillery is. The nose is all sweet and brown sugar like. In the mouth it is complex with a nice richness that is on the dry side. It opens up with a little water and becomes a little softer.

The Old Forester single barrel selections are exceptional values. This barrel 4093 is no exception.

This is a fantastic dry Riesling. There is a lot going on with this wine, and it showed as it developed in the glass. The nose has light subtle floral notes.

A high quality extra anejo. There is a lot going on in this bottle.The nose has some butter scotch and citrus. In the mouth savory citrus notes with round and rich juicy flavors from the extra aging help make this one of the best extra anejos that I have tasted. There is no sugar added to this product and there is a long finish.

2016 Raul Perez La Vizcaína "La Poulosa" Bierzo
Review Date: 04-15-2019
This is an excellent red wine because it has a lot to offer. I tasted it when it had first been opened and after it has been open for a while. Both times if offered nice red fruit flavors that were enhanced with savory and subtle notes. The nose was bright and inviting with both tastings. The main difference with the extra air time was that this wine got a velvet mouth feel.This wine will go great with pork or similar dishes.

This is the first time that I have had the chance to taste a single malt from this distillery. I am glad that I got to have this chance, because this is a very good single malt whisky. With one or two drops of water the nose opens up and is powerful and expressive, with aromas of wax, honey, and wood spice. In the mouth the honey, wax and spice notes continue with a creamy mouthfeel.

1998 Chateau de Vacquié 20 Year Old Unfiltered Haut-Armagnac (750ml)
Review Date: 03-29-2019
This quality Armagnac is pure and clean and a real drinking pleasure. The nose is expressive, sweet, floral and rich. In the mouth it is delicate but full bodied with round fruit flavors. It is mouth-coating and bigger and richer than the Vacquie 1991. I think that this should please any brandy drinker.

1988 Fitte et Laterrade 30 Year Old "Domaine Le Chaou" Bas-Armagnac (750ml)
Review Date: 03-29-2019
This Armagnac is imported by Charles Neal which means that it is unique, interesting and of high quality. The nose is dark and earthy with a layer of floral and fruit.In the mouth it has a nice rich dark fruit aspect that accompanies earth and mineral notes. I added 2 to 3 drops of water and it really opened up making it softer, richer and the flavors more accessible. The two vintages of Laterrade we now have in stock are different from each other, with the 1988 being the most rich.

Review Date: 03-29-2019
This single malt is 55.6% abv but is easy to drink out of the bottle. But it is still better with a little water because the water opens the Balbair up and gives it a creamy mouth feel. The nose is interesting and complex, with sweet floral and a touch of vanilla and honey notes. In the mouth it is malty and round. It is not heavy and has a beautiful balance.
