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.

2007 Don Q "Limited Edition" Single Barrel Rum 750ml (Previously $37)

The Puerto Rican rum Don Q has a history stretching back to 1865 but the brand only relaunched in the continental United States in 2006. The 2007 "Limited Edition" is only the second such special offering by the distillery and was aged for 10 years before release. One of the best values we've yet to see in the rum market, Don Q remains the most undervalued player in the Puerto Rican rum market. Distilled by Serralles Destileria in Ponce Puerto Rico, this brand is best selling rum in Puerto Rico. While this is traditional spanish style rum, it doesn't sac ...

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.

Aged for ten long years in toasted brandy puncheons, the oak still takes a backseat to the exceptionally smooth and fruit forward spirit.

There's just no way to describe the feeling of coming across a splendid old cask of Wardhead (trade name for teaspooned Glenfiddich) like this one.

2010 Caol Ila 8 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

We didn't say no to a single Caol Ila cask this year. They're too good and too reasonably priced. With the demand for Islay peat as high as it has ever been, the quality of these casks combined with sharp pricing was an absolute no brainer. This Old Particular bottling is charged from a refill hogshead and, as always, bottled with no coloring or chill filtration. The meaty quality that we see in this year's Sovereign cask of Caol Ila is tamed here and while there is decidedly some richness of peat and decadent phenol components, this is really on the gen ...

Rhum Clement XO Rum From Martinique (750ml)

96-100 points Wine Enthusiast: "Luscious; an intensely toasty bouquet with scents of hemp, charcoal, cigarette, paraffin, charcoal and honey. The toasty core flavor is highlighted at palate entry; the midpalate focuses on the brown sugar, honey, oaky vanilla and holiday spice qualities. Semisweet finish, with tastes of nougat, candied walnut and dark honey." (06/2006)

Michel Couvreur "Peaty Overaged" K&L Exclusive Malt Whisky (750ml)

The chance to work with Michel Couvreur on a special K&L whisky project was something that David and I had been dreaming of for years. We had heard the stories. This crazy Belgian had moved to Burgundy in the '60s, carved out a wine cellar inside a mountain, only to fill it with Scottish single malt whisky instead of Pinot Noir. He set up camp in Beaune, ordered new-make spirit to be delivered by tanker, and drove down to Jerez himself, selecting his own sherry butts to insure only the finest quality casks for his contracted spirit. Unfortunately, Michel ...

1998 Chateau de Vacquié 20 Year Old Unfiltered Haut-Armagnac (750ml)

Easily one of the most picturesque properties in the Gers, Chateau Vacquie has extreme potential thanks to its special terroir and passionate proprietor. There's absolutely nothing typical about Chateau Vacquie or its owner Bruno Compagnon. While the area is not particularly renowned for great brandy, this special domaine has been identified by experts as being of exceptional quality. Most notably Aubert De Villaine, a friend of Bruno's who's personally examined the domaine and declared it be one of the finest in the southwest. Bruno was successful busin ...

Barrell Bourbon "K&L Exclusive" 14 Year Old Cask Strength Single Barrel #E522 Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

Barrell has firmly established themselves as the premier independent bottler of American spirits. It's casks like this one that showcase how they did it. While there is a plethora of aged Tennessee whiskey on the market at the moment, there is certainly an enormous variation in the quality of those casks. Careful selection by Barrell and a subsequent selection by us at K&L has led to this beauty being bottled. At 14 years old it really shows its age in all the best ways. It's dark and spicy without being overly tannic. The sweet brown sugars have caramel ...

Arette Artesanal Blanco Suave Tequila (750ml)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Close your eyes and you might think that’s tomato juice in the glass. It’s clear, but the fragrance is zesty, lemony and yes, fresh tomato-like. On the palate, dried oregano and green pepper come forward, plus a trace of tomato savoriness, and it finishes light, with lively lemon zest. It’s mouthwatering, with moderate alcohol feel. (KN)" (04/2014) K&L Notes: This is such great tequila that it is well worth spending the extra dough. All the bright agave floral notes jump out at you on the nose, and the palate packs a strong ...
