2016 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points James Suckling: "Terrific intensity of dark berries, almost peppery blackcurrants and violets with attractive and integrated, spicy oak and an earthy edge. The palate has a super powerful and long, linear core with plenty of fruit flesh strapped in tight for a long and thrilling ride into the finish. A blend of 86 per cent cabernet and 14 per cent merlot. Try from 2024." (02/2019) 97 points Wine Spectator: "*2019 Wine Spectator Wine of the Year* This is so vivid as it brims with pastis-soaked plum, blackberry, black currant and blueberry past...

1995 Clynelish 23 Year Old "Signatory Vintage Black Label" K&L Exclusive Single 2nd Fill Sherry Butt #11239 Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Over the years, Signatory has bottled some of K&L's most profound casks. We've been afforded unprecedented access to some of Scotland's rarest malts by our friends in Pitlochry. Often, we fall in love with a cask and are willing to pay a premium to work with Signatory Vintage because their offerings are so superlative. That means they might not be able to offer the same outrageous "value" on paper that our other direct bottlings do, but the premium is always worth it. Under rare circumstances, that paradigm is flipped upside down, they'll offer an unbeli...

2008 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 Dom Pérignon is the first time the estate has released a wine out of order (the 2009 was released before the 2008) but the estate loved the wine so much they felt it warranted additional aging. This is a rich, powerful wine that still shows incredible purity and elegance, with a stacked, concentrated feel on the palate. It’s rare to find such a mix of ripe, pure, concentrated fruit paired with this level of purity, focus, and precision. This is a legendary Dom that surpasses all the great vintages of Dom I have experience...

2008 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 Cristal is a perfect wine, and Champagne simple does not get any better. This incredible wine offers a beautiful perfume of clean, crisp fruits, layers of complexity in its toasted spice and white flowers, and an utterly seamless, yet powerful style on the palate. This is a rich, decadent expression of Cristal yet it’s still crystalline and elegant, with no sensation of weight, and it just glides over the palate. Haut Couture at its finest and this majestic, profound, legendary Cristal can be drunk anytime over the comin...

Littlemill "Old Malt Cask" 29 Year Old K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Littlemill offers a chance to taste history in more ways than one. Once famous for its beautiful and elegant triple-distilled malt, the distillery had been closed since the early '90s, and it tragically will never be reopened, as it burned to the ground in 2004. While extinct distilleries carry a lot of cache, Littlemill has never quite had the same pull or commanded the same prices as names like Brora and Port Ellen. Until recently that is. The original Littlemill stills and the remainder of Littlemill's whisky has settled into the Loch Lomond ownershi...

1979 North British 40 Year Old "Old Particular" Single Refill Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
This year we were more picky than usual in our grain selections. Perhaps the cream of the crop is the 40 year old North British. Though this cask is a bit younger than the 58 year old official distillery bottling released last year, it is still definitely no spring chicken. As single grain whiskey ages past the 20 year mark it often takes on tropical fruit notes, as it progresses even further, rich cream and honey often layer on top. At 40 years old as long as the cask doesn't overwhelm the spirit, this all comes together in a glorious mesh as a sweet an...

1988 Bunnahabhain 30 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Bunnahabhain has been doing its thing since 1881 with just a short shutdown in the early 1980s. The massive distillery was built at a time of booming confidence in the Scotch industry and everything about it reflects that, from the enormous sprawling distillery to the massive stills. Historically destined for blends such as Cutty Sark and Famous Grouse, it's in the modern booming era of Scotch that Bunnahabhain has really come into its own as a single malt. Known today for its unpeated malt on an island famous for peated spirit, Bunna at 30 years old is ...

2005 Laphroaig 13 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Unchillfiltered Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The magical distillery on the south shore of Islay, like all south shore distillers, is quite unlike any other. But Laphroaig has a certain place in the hearts of the hardest core peat lovers. They're the last distiller down there to malt a portion of their barley on site. Their complex system of tiny stills create the most peculiar and enticing peated spirit in the world. The quality and consistency of their casks is second to none. But over the last decade, what was once a staple in the independent bottling repertoire has completely disappeared. Laphro...

2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac
Top Pick!
100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An amazing wine in every sense, this classic, full-bodied Pauillac is the quintessential Pontet Canet from proprietor Alfred Tesseron, who continues to reduce yields and farms his vineyards biodynamically – a rarity in Bordeaux. Black as a moonless night, the 2009 Pontet Canet offers up notes of incense, graphite, smoke, licorice, creme de cassis and blackberries. A wine of irrefutable purity, laser-like precision, colossal weight and richness, and sensational freshness, this is a tour de force in winemaking tha...

2004 Ardbeg 15 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Single Ex-Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Unchill-filtered Islay Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The wonderful Chieftain's brand from Ian Macleod had been one of our primary sources for several years. They've got a knack for finding special casks. This is the first barrel of Ardbeg we've bottled from the "new" regime and only the second exclusive Ardbeg we've ever managed to extricate from the clutches of this very stingy distiller. Who can blame them for keeping every drop? The Ardbeg brand is still on fire and there's absolutely no reason for them to be selling to brokers or blenders. Yet here we are. Their new release, a 19-year-old version that ...

Bowmore "Old Malt Cask" 21 Year Old K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Bowmore offers one of the most unusual dichotomies in Scotland. They make some of the finest whisky available, they floor malt roughly a quarter of their barley in-house, they have vast stocks of exceptional whisky, yet the core expressions from the distillery always seem a touch lack luster. They're filtered and proofed way back, sure, but the raw materials are so good that you wouldn't expect it present so glaringly. This is where the independent cask market thrives. The freedom to bottle at full proof and without filtration or additives allows for the...

1995 L'Encantada 24 Year Old "Lous Pibous #146" Bas-Armagnac (750ml)
New!
The phenomenon that is Lous Pibous is unmatched in modern booze culture. It's rise to prominence in the eyes of the cognoscenti was so precipitous and furious, it could never have been predicted. Truly, a modern legend. It was an overnight success. This tiny estate been anointed as one of the great Gascogne estates. The inherently limited nature of the stocks has created a fever pitch. The golden age of brandy is here and Pibous might be its peak. It might have been lost completely had it not been for the great work of our partners at L'Encantada. We wer...

Barrell Craft Spirits 15 Year Old Cask Strength Blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)
Top Pick!
Distiller's notes: "This complex 15-year-old bourbon was blended and bottled at peak maturity so you can experience its true flavor. It is a perfect union of grain and barrel, with an old, oaky nose and a deep, honey- maple palate that reveals the lushness of the grain. Appearance: Warm, autumnal resins, blending together from afar. Nose: The central theme is of pie, notably Boston cream and pecan. Armagnac, and fig jam lend a dense, dark fruitiness. Herbal notes constantly pop to the fore and then gently ebb, cycling through spearmint, ginger ale and...

2016 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

99 points James Suckling: "Fantastic aromas that are complex and complete with blackcurrants, blueberries and herbs, such as basil and bay leaf. But always subtle. Full-bodied yet linear and very refined with a very persistent finish. It shows drive and brightness. So refined at the end. Needs at least three to five years to come together. " (02/2019) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Opus One offers up bold, expressive black and blue fruits: warm black plums, black cherries, blackcurrants and wild blueberri...

1995 Caperdonich 24 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Unchill-filtered Speyside Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The enigmatic Caperdonich Distillery is extremely rare. Built in 1897 and named "Glen Grant #2," Caperdonich by J. & J. Grant in the town of Rothes. Only 5 short years later, the Pattison whisky crisis shuttered the gleaming new distillery. It lay dormant for 60 more years before Glenlivet rebuilt it and resumed production. The name Caperdonich, meaning "secret well," was adopted due to new regulation prohibiting multiple distilleries from sharing the same name. It was purchased again in 1977 by Seagrams, who sold it to Pernod Ricard in 2001. Pernod ulti...

2014 Mayacamas Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackcurrant, mushroom, wet earth and bark follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a stone, berry, chili and spice aftertaste. Muscular and chunky. Very serious. Almost no new oak. This shows the Mayacamas DNA. " (01/2018) 96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is savory, fresh and super-inviting, as so many wines are in this vintage, Bright red cherry, iron, smoke, mint, wild flowers and anise all lift from the glass. Medium in body, taut and wonderfully focused, the 2014 is going to reward readers...

1997 Ledaig 21 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Unchill-filtered Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The odd and wonderful Tobermory distillery is one of Scotland's most picturesque and divisive. Only the Jura Distillery has more disperate opinions of their products. But something that almost every peat lover can agree on is the fact that the distiller's peated line, Ledaig, is an absolute dream. And it's remained in relative obscurity until recently. We've had a good deal of independents offer us Ledaig over the years, but it's almost always young stocks in very quiet hogsheads. That's simply because the mark is only produced a few weeks out of the yea...

98 points Vinous: "The 1977 Taylor's Vintage Port is initially tight and conservative on the nose: strawberry, baked cherry, tobacco and wild hedgerow notes emerging but remaining tight-lipped. This needs a good decant! The palate is endowed with depth and concentration, very well balanced with an attractive crispness. Perhaps you could argue that it is a "linear" and more "correct" Taylor's compared to the 1970 and lacks some charm. But there is immense complexity here so it is more a case of a Port demanding a very long maturation in bottle. Tasted in ...

95 points James Suckling: "A wine with beautiful strawberry and chocolate with hints of pie crust. It's full-bodied with super integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Needs at least four to five years to really come together but so wonderful. Not the amazing 2009 but clearly outstanding." (11/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gorgeous, flowery, classic Margaux once again, the 2010 Malescot St.-Exupery continues to show virtually no toasty oak, given the impeccable balance and full-bodied, full-throttle style it possesses. Black raspbe...

Opus One "Overture" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Top Pick!
In the tradition of many great Bordeaux estates, Opus One produces a fine second wine called Overture. Overture reflects the winemaker's artistry by showcasing the talent of blending five traditional Bordeaux grape varieties and capturing terroir characteristics of the same variety grown in different soils. Overture's additional blending aspect - that of marrying multiple vintages - yields a softer, rounder expression of their estate that may be enjoyed upon release.

The wonderful Dornoch Distillery sits hidden on the main drag in the tiny town of Dornoch. Behind the majestic Dornoch Castle Hotel and its famous whisky bar sits one of Scotland's tiniest and most exciting distilleries. Founded by brother Simon and Phil, the distillery is completely contained in one tiny stone shed. While the brothers might not have the resources and capital of many of Scotland's new distilleries, they do have an incredible vision and the unwaivering support of the Single Malt loving community. In that little shed a truly unique experim...

Krug "Grande Cuvée" 167 Ème Édition Brut Champagne

Some bread dough, but subtle and vivid. Very tight and focused. Racy and direct. Bright edition. Very fine textured. Youngest wine in the blend is 2011. " (07/2019) 96 points John Gilman: "The new release of Krug Grande Cuvée '167eme Édition' is stellar. The wine is from the base year of 2011 and utterly transcends that vintage, but, of course, it includes nearly two hun...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Graham is another great port house, producing one of the deepest-colored and sweetest styles of vintage port. Along with Taylor and Fonseca, Graham has probably been the most consistent producer of great port in the post- World War II era. Their tawnys are quite good rather than exceptional, but their vintage ports are truly sublime and sumptuous. (RP)" (01/1989) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This was never a great Graham, but it's outstanding quality nonetheless. Medium ruby-red. Aromas of milk chocolate, plum, m...

The palate has a very composed feel. Seamless and quite silky texture with effortless length and flow. Very fluid and composed. Very late, warming almond flavors. This is very long and smooth with a velvety finish. Super long pinot weight. Resolved and drinkable, but will age so well."

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From an ungrafted Pinot Noir vineyard planted in 1973 (on sandy soils) and picked on September 25th at 11.2 potential alcohol, the 2012 Extra Brut Blanc de Noirs Premier Cru les Francs de Pied offers very clear, fresh, precise and delicate fruit on the nose. Fermented 100% in used oak barrels, this is a pure, highly finessed, very elegant and terribly salty Pinot Noir with a very long, complex yet pure, tensioned and very long finish. This is well structured and persistent. (SR)" (08/2018)

Fine, delicate and subtle, this lightly wooded grand cru takes your breath away with its focus, poise, and its thrilling length. Drinking Window 2024-2035. (TA)" (07/2018) 97 points John Gilman: "There was just a touch of frost damage in the domaine’s holdings in les Preuses in 2017, so the yields here were down by ten percent.

1976 L'Encantada 43 Year Old "Domaine Le Sablé #12" Bas-Armagnac (750ml)
New!
This wonderful cask of ultra mature Armagnac is proof that we're still in an absurd state with regards to the price of old brandy from Gascogne. This rare product comes from a domaine that only produced 3 vintages - 1973, 1974 and 1976. We were lucky to acquire a cask of 1974 before they completely sold out and have worked hard to keep in Encantada's good graces. We were overjoyed to have been offered this exceptional barrel at more or less the same price as the one we sold previously. Sablé was a very traditional production using itinerant distillers an...

2006 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart" Brut Champagne

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Created in 1964 as a tribute to the house’s founder, the youngest release is the 2006 Millésime Brut Cuvée Nicolas François, a blend of 60% Pinot Noir from premier and grand crus from the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne and 40% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. Almost entirely fermented in stainless steel (only 5% was vinified in oak barrels) and aged for 11 years on the lees, this is a beautifully ripe and rich yet pure champagne with ripe fruit flavors intermixed with chalky notes and bri...

A workhorse distillery in Speyside, Allt-a-Bahine was originally built in 1975 to produce a light and fruity malt for Seagram's blending purposes. In 2001 the distillery was aquired by Pernod Ricard and folded into the Chivas portfolio. Mothballed for a time in the early 2000's after the sale, the distillery has been operating at full capacity since 2005 as we've seen everything about Scotch boom.

1974 Invergordon 45 Year Old "Old Particular" Single Refill Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The single malt explosion of the last decade has created more interest in Scotch whisky than ever before. Along with the resulting throngs of devoted malt lovers, an unheralded category has begun to make inroads with connoisseurs and collectors alike. Single Grain whisky is the other side of Scotch, the hidden side. Normally relegated, the unmentionable filler for the great blends, when it was first created in the mid-19th century, it was extremely controversial. But the very thing that makes grain whisky so profitable for blenders also makes it so extre...

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Closing in on its 25th birthday, this wine has gone a little insane in the bottle. Drink it just after opening and you’ll think it’s a bit of a refined old lady, rich, toasty and oaky, but starting to fray at the edges, the weave of its light tannins and firm acidity a little loose. The wine comes back together with several hours of air, however, and gains freshness over the course of a day, transforming into a wild, vivid beauty in its prime, the acidity and tannins merged into a vibrant salted caramel flavor with subtle flora...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Roederer's 2002 Cristal is a fabulous wine! Originally released in 2009, it was re-released in March this year—and was sold out in a very short time. The Cristal I tasted at Roederer in May 2018 was disgorged in 2010, after seven years sur lie. Its amazing richness and concentration makes it a forerunner of the 2015 and follows the 1999. Only two times—2002 and 2015—the fruit from all 42 plots reserved for Cristal was used for the Cristal. "I couldn't do any better blend than the one assembling all the 42 plots,"...

2014 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
Top Pick!
96 points Decanter: "Notes of black cherry, cassis, graphite, incense, spice and rich soil preface an authoritative, intense wine with a lovely chassis of fine but firm tannins, underpinned by vibrant acidity: quintessential Dunn Howell Mountain. Under Mike Dunn's thoughtful stewardship, the family's wines have become more refined; largely thanks to more carefully chosen barrels. But while this wine may be less forbidding in its youth than the vintages of the 1990s, let it sleep for a decade to reveal its potential complexity. (WK)" (05/2017) 96 points...

The home of Ballantine's - the world's second largest whisky seller. Nearly every precious drop of Glenburgie stays 'in the familly.'

On the northern edge of Speyside, Glenburgie has a long history with multiple ownership interests like so many famous Scottish distilleries.

Also like Lous Pibous, Le Freche is not the name of the Domaine itself, but a place holder used by the bottlers. Because of this secrecy there's much speculation regarding the source of the spirit. Unfortunately for those seeking truth there are easily 10+ excellent producers in the little village, so take a guess.

Sharing many characteristics with Speyside's Auchroisk, the Highland's Blair Athol is another Diageo workhorse distillery. Sitting just outside the town of Pitlochry, Blair Athol sees a hot and fast production process which lends a singed and nutty base note to the whisky.
