Suntory Hakushu 12 Year Old Japanese Peated Single Malt Whisky (limit 1) (750ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This golden, silky single malt mingles vanilla and honey with fresh apple and pear aromas. These notes are echoed on the palate alongside a wave of peat smoke. Add a splash of water to offset the modest but persistent alcohol heat and further coax out the fruity-smoky flavors. (KN)" (12/2015) Wine Spectator: "This Suntory distillery is located in a mountain forest in the southern Japanese alps. The whisky has cool, mint/basil, bamboo, kiwi and green melon aromas with the faintest hint of smoke." (10/2014) Whisky Advocate: ...

Ardbeg "Drum" Limited Edition Islay Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

The wonderful Limited Edition Ardbeg gives us a reason to celebrate the impending arrival of summer when they're released on Ardbeg Day - June 1st. The Limited Edition bottling is one of the most anticipated offerings every year and this year's "Ardbeg Drum" has taken the line to a whole new level. Matured in ex-bourbon oak for presumably 10 years before being transferred entirely to ex-rum casks sourced from somewhere in the "Americas," the Ardbeg Drum is a totally new expression of the unique flavors of Islay's Ultimate Malt. Instead of the typical fre ...

The smokiness comes forward at the first sip, wrapping around a core of oak and vanilla custard and finishing long, with a mouthwatering bitter chocolate note. *Best of 2016* (KN)" (03/2016) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "Poised and complex, with typically lifted fruitiness: strawberry ice cream, pineapple, peach, balanced by delicate oak, bamboo shoot-like delicacy, then lemon. ...

Springbank 22 Year Old "Sovereign Wax Top" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Pre-Arrival)

We had an exceptional cask of Springbank last year that sold out after almost no effort on our part. We only received 78 bottles from that cask because it had supposedly been split with another market. As it turns out, we might have found the rest of that cask. The supplier is unable to confirm if this is the rest of the cask that we didn't get last year or if in fact it is a sister cask. Again we've only been allocated a tiny amount (108 bottles) and the proof is slightly lower by one tenth of one percent. If it is indeed the same juice, it certainly is ...

Laphroaig 20 Year Old "Sovereign Wax Top" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Pre-Arrival)

It has been a but since we've had a single cask of Laphroaig and even longer since we've had one this old. From Laing's excellent late 90s stock, we lucked out to be able to acquire this bottling at 2017 prices. Right now in Scotland, we're unable to buy Laphroaig older than 15 years for less than £200 a bottle ex-warehouse. That translates to more than $400+ on a retail shelf in most markets. Our close friends and partners at Signatory just sold out a 20 year single cask of Laphroaig for upwards of $700. But, a good bit of luck and some even better tim ...

1994 Miltonduff 24 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

The strikingly underappreciated Miltonduff distillery is unique in so many ways. Built on the site of an old mill for the Pluscarden Abbey, the distillery's old stone buildings hide one of Speyside's most delicious malts. Originally a Priory founded by King Alexander II in 1230, the area became renowned for illicit distillation. Originally licensed in 1824, the name "Milton" was taken from a still that operated on the property. The Duff family owned the lands surrounding the abbey, hence the name Miltonduff. The malt became an important component of the ...

To say there has been a renaissance in interest in the unusually special distillery in the town of Brora would be an understatement. While the owners seem to be uninterested in further expanding the distillery's repertoire beyond the standard offerings, the rest of the world is crying out for more Clynelish.

This small stone distillery has provided K&L with several of our most renowned single barrels, namely a few old refill casks from Signatory, which were dark refill sherry butts.

2006 Isle of Jura 12 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

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. But it does seem that the owners, Whyte & Mackay, don't let go of the stuff very often. 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.

We can wax poetic about the magnificence of the unsung distillery hidden off the road in between Craigellachie and Keith. But this bottling is simply a value proposition.

Auchroisk is not a really well known distillery, but our customers have been treated to some rather lovely versions over the years.

Talisker has sort of this mythical quality in the pantheon of great malts. The majestic distillery on the banks of Loch Harport has long been a staple of any good Scotch selection thanks to its inclusion in the original "Classic Malt" line-up. While it was always one of the more available high quality malts on the market, Talisker was almost NEVER bottled by independents.

Distilled in late 2004 and filled into and ex-bourbon barrel, the whisky was bottled at the end of last year without any dilution or filtration of any kind. Old Pulteney, despite wining nurmerous accolades, remains one of Scotland's great unsung heros in the Highlands. Built in 1826, it was not easily accesible until much later.

Sure the owners put out a passable 16 year offering that could cost you more than $140 a bottle, but they don't seem to make much of an attempt to sell it to anyone.

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.

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.

1988 Cambus 29 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $100)

The shuttererd Cambus distillery had a spectacular history in the development of modern whisky and has had an equally important, albeit shorter and more recent, history in K&L's direct import program. At the dawn of the 20th century not everyone was in agreement that grain whisky produced on a Coffey still could actually be considered whisky. The extraordinary quality of Cambus was a key component in establishing that precedent which is a huge part of today's whisky trade. In fact, for many years, Cambus formed a large portion of Johnnie Walker Blue. Unf ...

Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $100)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Soy sauce, olive brine, peat, honey, oloroso Sherry, brewer’s yeast, bread dough, barley malt and cigar smoke in the bouquet. The flavor that magically includes the innate intense peatiness of Islay malts and the masterly employment of oak barrels phase defines “classy Islay.” Concludes sweetly, without sacrificing the tangy, astringent peatiness that is inherent. Gorgeous. *Best Buy* " (06/2006) 94 points Whisky Advocate: "An old classic, but how do the newest bottlings fare? Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture. Deep peat ...

1997 Benrinnes 20 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

For people who have been following us for a while, you'll remember this special whisky. We've purchased several of these and the 1995 version that's now completely gone. It was always neck and neck with the wonderful 1995 Imperials, which is now 3 times the old price in the warehouse. I was extremely concerned that Signatory would raise the price of this exceptional whisky to unobtainable levels, but after tasting it again from a particularly good cask I knew we had to have this special whisky and keep it reasonable. Benrinnes is one of these unknown Dia ...

1995 Loch Lomond ("All Malt") 22 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $90)

We have two amazing rarities from the reclusive Loch Lomond distillery this year. A unique facility, Loch Lomond makes every type of whisky they need for their blends in house. This means they operate a huge number of stills including multiple column stills and multiple pot stills. They make whisky in damn near every combination from heavily peated single malts to peat free malt and multiple varieties of grain whisky. This 22 year old is technically a single grain, but as grain whisky can be made from any grain, this so happens to be made from malted bar ...

Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch #6 Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Here is the new batch of Balvenie's well received NAS small production vatting: nine casks--seven traditional whisky cask (perhaps they mean hoggies?) and two sherry butts--from various vintages, all finished in the Tun 1401, a traditional marrying vessel. Some are close to 30 years old. This limited release will not be around for long. The distillery describes it as "fragrant and fruity with barley sugar sweetness and soft vanilla. The liquid is sweet at the start, followed by a luscious explosion of tangy citrus and gentle spices. Notes of honey combin ...

Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch #5 Single Malt Whisky

From The Distiller: "The Balvenie Tun 1401, Batch 5 is a marriage of barrels from the distillery’s Warehouse 24. Bottled in 2012, this is a vatting of five ex-bourbon casks in four ex-sherry butts, whose ages span a number of decades, and which have all been hand-selected by Malt Master David Stewart. The whisky was rested for several months in Tun 1401 – The Balvenie’s traditional oak marrying vessel. Released exclusively for the European market."

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 ...

Kujira Ryukyu 20 Year Old "Bourbon Cask" Japanese Whisky (750ml)

Founded in 1952, Kumesen Syuzo produces a distilled spirit known as Awamori that is made entirely with rice and is unique to the Okinawa islands of Japan. Typically aged for just a few years and consumed at lower proof, the distillery began experimenting with high proof aging in ex-bourbon casks in 1989. The result are stocks of extremely old single grain whisky. The age and the american oak set this whisy apart from most of the other rice whiskies on the market because both create a depth and complexity that are not present in the younger products. Stil ...
