1996 Tobermory 22 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

There is only one distillery on the Isle of Mull and while it has a history dating back to the late 1700s, for much of that history, the distillery has been closed. Fortunately for us, in the 1990s the distillery was opened again after its most recent 11 year closure, and has gone back to producing classic island malts. With its small production of less than 1 million liters per year the distillery makes two very different malts today. Tobermory is the namesake malt of the distillery and is generally, although confusingly, not always unpeated. Ledaig is ...

1996 Auchroisk 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Let's get the hardest part out of the way - It's pronounced "Ah-thrusk." This non-peated nutty and spicy malt is the result of hot and fast whisky making. A quick mash of the malt, a short fermentation period, and a rapid boil in the wash still leave this whisky heavy and rich. A style that makes it a cult favorite for drinkers and blender's alike. Located just south of the Burn of Mulben and east of the River Spey, Auchroisk was originally built to supply J&B with malt for their famous blend. There have been distillery bottlings since 1986, but it is mo ...

1996 Joël Taluau Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Vieilles Vignes

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Impressively saturated ruby-red color. Complex aromas of black raspberry, kirsch, Valrhona chocolate, smoke and gunflint. Tactile and quite concentrated; really dense with extract. Ripe acidity gives the deep flavors lovely clarity. A real fruit essence: the wine somewhat chewy tannins and alcohol are hidden by fruit. (ST)" (12/1998) K&L Notes: Joël Taluau is a fabulous grower in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil known for making some of the purest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the Loire, unmarred by the ...

1996 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac

Jancis Robinson: "Quite dark crimson. Savoury, evolved, rather toasty nose. Round and mild and easy to like. (JR)" (02/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very good example of this under-achieving estate, the 1996's saturated dark ruby/plum color is accompanied by textbook aromas of black currants, smoky new oak, minerals, and tobacco. Well-made, with moderate tannin, excellent purity, and a medium-bodied, ripe, melted asphalt-flavored finish, this seductive Lynch-Moussas should drink well at a young age.

1996 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Representing the essence of Zinfandel, this wine boasts a dark saturated purple color, mind boggling fruit extract and concentration levels, compelling harmony and overall balance, particularly for a wine of such massive size, and a whoppingly long finish. The dominate characteristics are its blackberry/black raspberry/cherry liqueur-like flavors, voluptuous texture, and seamless integration of wood, alcohol, and acidity. I am not a great believer in the capability of Zinfandels to age, but this wine, although ac ...

1996 Dom Pérignon "P2" Brut Champagne

97 points Decanter: "1996 remains one of the most unusual and controversial Champagne vintages thanks to a rare combination of high sugars and acidities. This was caused by sustained north-east winds which dried out the berries, concentrating the juice. At the same time, excellent acidity levels were retained in the grapes. However, not every house’s '96 has gone the distance and some are now well and truly dead. Fortunately, this isn’t one of them - Geoffroy took the risky decision to wait until late in the day to pick and this has clearly paid dividend ...

The nose is stout and correct, wonderful precision here with blackberry, blueberry, tobacco, cedar-wood and a touch of cassis. Very sleek and appealing. The palate is medium-bodied with beautiful balance, very fine tannins and that sense of symmetry and focus that top Californian Cabernets can deliver. Superb weight and precision on the finish.

Hard not to drink now, but leave it alone. (JS, Web-2007)" 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 1996 Latour is a wine that continues to perplex. I just think that given the vintage, the team would have made a far superior wine nowadays. That said, it is still a very fine Pauillac. Here, it conveyed a sen ...

A major mouthful of suave, generous, but sharply defined fruit; thoroughly ripe, sweet dark berry, chocolate and game flavors coat the entire palate.

A blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache, and aged 18 months in small barrels, of which 45% were new, it is a superb, explosively rich, opaque purple-colored wine with a knock-out nose of blackberry liqueur intermixed with floral notes, toast, anise, and dried herbs.

It offers everything you desire from this First Growth.

Powerful and thick, it's not graceful now but certainly impressive. Best from 2001 through 2007."

It has an attractive bouquet with blackcurrant pastilles, briary, a touch of gravel and dried orange peel. As I commented a few years ago, this is a 1996 that is not as immediate as others, but seems to find its voice with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a soy-tinged opening. This is well balanced and quite rounded in the mouth, quite masculine and perhaps having dispensed with some of the f ...

The bouquet is deep and classic, as it jumps from the glass in a mélange of black cherries, dark berries, Cuban tobacco, incipient notes of the black truffles to come, and a fine base of Graves earth.
