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...

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...

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...

1991 Cameronbridge 27 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The Cameronbridge Grain Distillery is one of the largest alcohol producing facilities in Scotland. The site has been active since 1824, when the Haig Distillery opened. Just six years later, it would install the first "patent" column still and begin producing grain whisky. This was the beginning of a revolution that made Scotch the world's bestselling whisky. The distillery has produced a significant quantity of the world's Scotch whisky since its expansion in the 1960s. After a third column still was added from the closed Carsebridge distillery in 1984 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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...

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...

Suntory "Hibiki Japanese Harmony" Japanese Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
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. 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. ...

2007 Glenlivet 12 Year Old "Signatory Unchillfiltered Collection" 1st Fill Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
For those who've been paying attention for the last decade or so, you'll know that we've had some pretty incredible success with Signatory. Likely the most requested and reminisced about product from them was a series of heavily sherried Glenlivets we bottled nearly four years ago. Those stupendous casks from this blue chip distillery were really quite rare, and have become legends. But the quality of those incredible offerings and their scarcity resulted in an absolute explosion in their price. What we once stocked for under $100, now were pushing $300....

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...

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...

Four Roses Small Batch Select Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)
Top Pick!
93 points Whisky Advocate: "The limited-edition releases from Four Roses are always top-notch, but this bourbon—a permanently available addition to the lineup—proves itself every bit the equal of its rarer brethren. Made with the distillery’s F yeast strain, among others, it has a perfumed nose, with orange blossom, cedar chest, berries, spearmint, tobacco leaves, sassafras, licorice, and layers of earthy spice. The palate is consistent and deep, with flavors of cherry Coke, cough syrup, orange oil, leathery dark fruit, black pepper, chili flakes, and ch...

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...

Glengoyne 21 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Technically a Highland whiskey, Glengoyne sits on the very southern edge of the region. In fact, their warehouses which sit just across the road from the distillery, are in the Lowlands. Regardless of regional designation Glengoyne has been one of the best whiskies on our shelf for quite sometime. The distilleries 21 year old bottling has by far been the most popular in their lineup, in part because of our extraordinary pricing ($140). When we saw we would be able to offer this cask for just $100 bucks our jaws dropped. Cask strength 21 year old Glengoyn...

Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Gin (1L)

The story of Monkey 47 gin is romantic: in 1951, a British man named Montgomery Collins moved to Germany's Black Forest and opened a guesthouse named "Zum wilden Affen"--the wild monkey. At that time a renowned gin drinker, Collins's taste for the spirit was unknown until renovation work at the country guesthouse led to the discovery of a weighty old wooden box containing a bottle and a letter. The dusty bottle had been labeled and decorated by hand, showing a sketch of a monkey and the words "Max the Monkey--Schwarzwald Dry Gin." The accompanying letter...

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.

The world's first and only vodka distilled from 100% organic medjool dates sourced locally from the Oasis Date Garden in the Coachella Valley. Fermented, distilled and NOT filtered by the Hollywood Distillery in Los Angeles, the resulting spirit is one of the most complex and voluptuous we've ever tasted. Rich and round, it's got absolutely no hard edges, yet is not totally devoid of flavor like most vodka. It's a bold aromatic mixture of ripe stone fruit, hints of mineral and herbs and a subtle creamy texture that makes Oasis Vodka stand out. The Hollyw...

Just when you think you've tasted every type of booze known to man, you discover that there are yet more regionally specific spirits being distilled in places you've never considered. Take Bolivia, for example. In Bolivia they make a pisco-like spirit called Singani, distilled from Muscat of Alexandria grapes grown high in the Andes mountains. Seeing that Muscat is an aromatic varietal, known for its fruity and floral character, the Singani spirit distilled from it takes on many of the perfumes found in the expressive grape. The result is a clean and vib...

They were a huge hit here at K&L many years ago when they were brand new with baby aged whiskey. Today they're better than ever.

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. The island's 200 inhabitants are vastly outnumbered by a massive population of red deer, who keep the islands vegetation from growing beyond the lowest grasses. The infertil...

The nose is just this side of hot and brings parched corn, sawn maple wood, spicy hard candy, and dry spearmint leaf. Bright and spicy on the tongue; more candy and honey, and hints of teaberry and licorice that develop into the finish.

Glen Moray 23 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Glen Moray is a distillery that has historically been a victim of its own success. Long owened by Glenmorangie's ownership group, Macdonald & Muir, Glen Moray served as a malt for the budget conscious consumer. Despite making excellent whisky and being widly consumed, it never really recovered from this association. The good news is that today $100 bucks for anything with a big age statement is firmly in the "budget" category, and this malt over delivers in a big way. It's supremely soft and supple.
