2003 Domaine Labet Marcs du Jura 750ml (out of stock)  
Review Date: 11-7-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
I bought the 2001 version of this last year and loved it. This 2002 is just as amazing! It is savory, almost sea-salty in its 'minerality' (of sorts), and silky smooth. It's got lots of rancio nuttiness and lees-influenced flavors. A very full-bodied, classy brandy. Uniquely Jurassic. Excellent.

2009 Patricius Sárga Muskotály (Yellow Muscat) Tokaj (Dry) (out of stock)  
Review Date: 5-23-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
I can't not review this wine. It is has such beautiful floral characteristics. And bone dry. If you're looking for a dinner muscat, this is definitely the one. It translates as "yellow muscat" but it might be the same as muscat ottonel. But in my opinion, it tastes way better than the usual ottonels I've had. Incidentally, I presented this wine at a nerdy organic chemistry class as being monoterpene rich if that means anything to you. Anyway, awesome. I'll buy more. Even my picky wife liked it! Bravo, K&L.

Einstök Icelandic White Ale, Iceland 12oz  
Review Date: 5-23-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
The porter by Einstok is the only better commercial beer I've had recently. BUT, what's to note is that the minerality in this beer is crazy awesome. Apparently something is going right in Iceland because the water is Great in both beers. This white ale and the porter I've tried are superb. This white ale is light and bright and clean. Definitely worth trying. If you're a porter fan, go there too!!!

This beers ROCKS. It is on the smoky side for a porter, but it has a uniquely awesome balance of thick viscous body and minerality that I've never had in a beer before. Amazing.

Pheasant's Tears Chacha Georgian Brandy 375ml (out of stock)  
Review Date: 3-14-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
This stuff is cool. The 'Pheasant's Tears' Georgian wines can be found more readily -- this brandy from them is rare. This brandy has a lot of high notes and a lot of low notes too suggesting early entry and late exit cut points from the still. A very full palate in terms of flavors from the still. The flavors are broad but cohesive. That serves it well. It loses half a grade in my opinion for only being aged 2 years which deprives it of any familiar wood, toffee, or vanilla notes.

Quartz Reef "Methode Traditionelle" Sparkling Wine Brut Central Otago  
Review Date: 2-7-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
This stuff is a STEAL! I first tasted this in a WSET class setting (Diploma level) and we all thought it was $40. Great depth. Moderate autolytic character (toasty, bready notes). What's good is that the fruit really contributes a lot. I thought there would be a run on the store after my class, so I bought 9 bottles. Mine, all mine. MMmm..

Smith & Cross Traditional Jamaica Rum Plummer & Wedderburn Pure Pot Still 750ml  
Review Date: 2-7-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
It's good, but it's so freaking high in alcohol, that the only respectable thing to do with it (for my body) is to mix it into mai tais. For that, it is divine. It makes a great high octane mai tai. This, orgeat, orange curacao, and a fresh lime. MMM! Served neat though, I just can't rate it higher than 3.5.

The best American brandy. Comes off quite dry, if that is your style. Elegant.

2006 Terre da Vino "Essenze" Barolo (out of stock)  
Review Date: 2-7-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Reminds me of Gattinara in the sense that the tannins are cranked up! Total Ballerina in boxing gloves. EXTREMELY good value. If you don't like forward tannins, you won't like this (and then I can buy it all for myself).

Louis Roque Vieille Prune 750ml  
Review Date: 2-7-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
A lot of bright notes, rich plummy medium notes, and few low notes. So, I think the distiller uses early entry and early exit cut points. Just how I like them. It preserves all the bright, pretty fruit though, true, it comes at the cost of some residual high-toned ester notes which some people might not like. I like esters though. Great digestif neat.

Around 10 years old I think. Anyway, it's great neat -- better than maker's, woodford's, or bulleit. Great in bourbon manhattans and old fashioneds too! Bourbons are such good deals and that includes this one. Makes me sick. (Not really.)

This is the most interesting brandy I have ever had. Period. It is the coolest stuff. A little special purpose, as it tastes unique, but amazing nonetheless. Not for cocktails. It has a savory character presumably from savagnin lees/pomace or something....Jura lovers, try it!

A great Armagnac and a great value. True to form and has richer flavor than I expected of a Tenareze. Bravo to Charles Neal for importing this. Armagnac man wins again!

St. George Spirits Single Malt Whiskey 750ml

You know, I swear they use some hops in the wort when they make this. It has a beautiful, herbal note that I've only found elsewhere in Charbay's hopped whiskey. (I realize extremely few producers incorporate hops in whiskey production.) Whether it has hops or not, it is great, dense stuff to be enjoyed neat.

2005 Bunan "Moulin des Costes" Bandol (out of stock)  
Review Date: 2-7-2012

A well priced Bandol. I can't afford Tempier except on rare occasion. This wine delivers the typical Mourvedre characteristics of bold structure and dark, rich, blackberry fruit. I love Bandol. Even went there in 2009. Quite a beautiful place. This wine transports me there. What a great brooding, winter wine.
