Suntory "Hibiki Japanese Harmony" Japanese Whisky (750ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The newest blended whisky offering from Hibiki is burnished gold in the glass and has a bold aroma that mixes vanilla, fresh pear and a hint of smoke.

2010 Launois "Spécial Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (750ml - ships as 1.5L)

Without a doubt, this is one of the best Champagnes we carry at any price. Made from two plots of 65-year-old vines, one in the grand cru of Oger called "Chenys" and one in Mesnil called "Derriere Maison," this is among the ultimate expressions of Chardonnay that we have to offer. The wine shows the richness of the 2010 harvest perfectly with great ripeness but balanced by the scintillating acidity of the pure belemnita chalk. Add in the richness and complexity from old massal-selected, Grand Cru, mid-slope sites and you have a must-buy for any Champagne ...

It is hard to beat the Grand Cru of Verzenay for pure class when it comes to Pinot Noir Champagne.

The Isle of Jura is one of those incredible malts that we almost never see in the wild. Partly that's because they just don't make that much whisky.

Isle of Jura has its following, but the little distillery on the sparsely populated island to the north of Islay isn't a household name by any means.

97 points Vinous: "The 2009 Guiraud is one of the gems of Sauternes this vintage, one of the finest offerings in recent years. It has a wonderful, beautifully delineated bouquet with expressive scents of wild honey, orange pith, Seville orange marmalade and just a hint of pineapple. The palate is beautifully defined with pure botrytised fruit, supremely well balanced with a vivacious, ginger and white pepper tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. Outstanding. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. (NM)" (03/2019) 96 points James S ...

2016 Chappellet "Signature" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I was able to taste three wines from Chappellet. Starting with the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature, it sports a vivid purple color as well as a stunningly pure bouquet of crème de cassis, vanilla oak, spice box, and graphite. Deep, full-bodied, with incredible purity of fruit, this beauty has no hard edges, offering beautiful overall balance and a great finish. As with most 2016s, it has a certain accessibility and upfront charm, but it will be even better with short-term cellaring and keep for two decades. This beauty is worthy ...

2004 Fettercairn 14 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The tumultuous ownership history of Fettercairn has been in part responsible for the lack of brand recognition. While it has long been bottled as a single malt, it has never gained much notoriarty that way and the bulk of its stocks end up in blends, most recently for Whyte and Mackay. An interesting production set up, particularly from 1995 to 2009 when they used stainless steel condensers, has lent itself to a nutty and heavy style to the malt. Fortunately for K&L drinkers, this 14 year old whisky has taken that natural style and matured into a oily, r ...

Helios Distillery "Kura The Whisky" Rum Cask Finished Pure Malt Japanese Whisky (750ml)

The Helios Distillery in the city of Nago has become renowned for their exceptional Awamori, the local Okinawan specialty. This is a kind of aged Sochu that has been consumed on the island since the 15th century.

Their flagship whisky, sold under the Kura brand, is one of the most unique and enticing Japanese whiskies we've ever come across. They begin with peat sourced from the mires of Hokkaido. The Japanese peat has a lot of th ...

2016 Emidio Pepe Trebbiano d'Abruzzo

92 points Vinous: "Bright medium-dark yellow. Aromas of apple, pear, lime and apple cider on the rich nose. Then dense, bright and juicy, featuring suave pomaceous orchard fruit flavors and a hint of gingery zing on the clean finish. Lovely, refreshing but also very concentrated white that is increasingly less funky and macerated than past vintages of Trebbiano d’Abruzzo from Emidio Pepe. (ID)" (09/2018) K&L Notes: *Natural Wine*

2013 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino

97 points Vinous: "Luminous red. High-pitched aromas of sour red cherry, raspberry, rose, stainless steel, white pepper and minerals. Dense and silky in texture but displays great juiciness, clarity and floral lift; the lively but harmonious acidity really lifts and frames the bright red and mineral flavors. Totally saturates the palate and yet comes off as virtually weightless. This hauntingly beautiful wine showcases everything Brunello can be when made from an ultra-competent producer farming Sangiovese vines that grow in what is a real grand cru sect ...
