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

94 points Whisky Advocate: "An old classic, but how do the newest bottlings fare? Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture. Deep peat, thick smoke, iodine, brine, charcoal, seaweed, tea (Earl Grey, Lapsang Souchong), and the aromas of a summer barbeque. Vanilla and light caramel soften the intensity, while subtle citrus fruit teases. Powerful, yet polished and seamless. After all these years, this whisky is still one of the finest standard-issue peaty, smoky whiskies! (Vol. 20, #3)" 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* Soy sauce, olive brine, peat, honey, oloroso Sherry, brewer’s yeast, bread dough, barley malt and ...Read More »

2002 Balvenie 14 Year "Peat Week" Vintage Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

This limited edition Balvenie is the result of one single vintages production distilled entirely in the year 2002. David Stewart and Ian Millar began experimenting with peated whisky years ago and in order to avoid tainting the standard Balvenie spirit they allocated an entire week exclusively to peated whisky production. Each year the distillery produced a tiny amount of these peated whiskies, so each bottling is by it naturally very limited. This particular bottling, the first available stateside, is not chill filtered and aged exclusively in American ... Read More »

Ardbeg "An Oa" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) New!
Ardbeg "An Oa" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

From the distillery: a welcome new addition to the Ultimate range. Ardbeg An Oa is singularly rounded, due in no small part to time spent in our newly established bespoke oak Gathering Vat where whiskies from several cask types - including; sweet Pedro Ximenez; spicy virgin charred oak; and intense ex-bourbon casks, amongst others - familiarise themselves with each other. The result is a dram with smoky power, mellowed by a delectable, smooth sweetness. Hallmark Ardbeg peat, dark chocolate and aniseed are wrapped in smooth, silky butterscotch, black pepp...

Ardbeg "Uigeadail" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $73)

95 points Whisky Advocate: "The marriage works exceptionally well, with the younger whiskies providing the classic Ardbeg intensity many of us have come to expect, while the older whiskies contribute depth, maturity, and complexity. And bottling the whisky at cask-strength without chill-filtration ensures that none of the flavors are stripped out. This is an incredibly complex Islay whisky, with its bonfire smoke, brine, and peppered olive notes balanced by a taming sweetness of vanilla, marshmallow, and toffee. Interwoven notes of candied fruit and sugared almonds round out the pa ...Read More »

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. (KN)" (3/2016) 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.

1991 North British 25 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Grain Whisky (750ml)

Just outside of Edinburgh sits the North British grain distillery, a facility that uses unmalted grains like corn and wheat and distills them on a column still to produce grain whisky--one of the more misunderstood personalities of the whisky universe. Most of you have had grain whisky before, you've just had it in conjunction with single malt whisky in expressions like Johnnie Walker or Chivas. Grain whisky is what's ultimately combined with single malt whisky to create "blended" whisky (hence the name). What hasn't been clear to most drinkers until rat... Read More »

Laphroaig "Quarter Cask" Islay Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Previously $55)

91 points Whisky Advocate: "The whisky begins sweet and creamy, with notes of vanilla, honey, and ripe malt (reminiscent of a malting floor). Then the Laphroaig signature peat smoke, seaweed, tar, and medicinal notes emerge. Bottling at 48% and without chill-filtering keeps the whisky from being dulled down. A whisky that is very dynamic. Nicely done. (Vol. 15, #2)" Wine Enthusiast: "Bold and overwhelmingly smoky, this golden single malt was matured twice, first in large casks and then transferred to smaller “quarter casks,” for more contact with the barrel wood.

It’s powerful, with a thick, buttery feel and a long finish of lip-smacking spice cake and sea brine notes. (KN)" (12/2015) Whisky Advocate: "Somehow this 12 year old—a mix of sherry and American oak—is overlooked by malt lovers heading straight to the mental world of a’Bunadh.

Over the last four years we've completely fallen in love with Benrinnes distillery, one of Diageo's Johnnie Walker satellites that rarely sees the light of day as a single malt release. There's something inherently joyful about the whisky from Benrinnes; there's a freshness and a vibrancy that sings from the glass no matter the age, proof, or type of cask that it's been aged in.

Whisky Advocate: "A much-beloved malt in the U.S. Some say it’s because it is easy to pronounce (though having said that, remember it’s ‘OH-bin’ and not ‘O’Bahn’). I’d prefer to think its popularity is because there is something about the fresh cleanliness of the nose, its orange oils, chocolate, and zesty-zingy and yes, occasionally salty spiciness that is instantly appealing.

Those interested in truly learning what the term "refill hogshead" refers to will get exhibit A with this new 10 year old Bunnahabhain release. Clearly the vessel had been used a number of times before it was filled with cask strength whisky from Islay, offering little in terms of richness and weight. That's OK, however, because Islay whiskies carry so much character on their own that often little oak is needed to showcase what is already a quality malt from Bunnahabhain. At 55.2%, this is the quintessential rocks whisky, brimming with sweet grains, cris... Read More »

This is a pleasant and drinkable Scotch, but the flavors are relatively muted. It mixes well with other flavors, making it a good contender for cocktails. Good value. (KN)" (12/2011) Whisky Advocate: "As with the ‘Fiddich (reviewed in this issue), here’s a malt where an improved wood policy has brought a dram to life and added complexity.

The palate delivers some menthol, bay laurel, more brininess, a hint of malt, and Parma violet. Everything remains very breezy, with peat smoke being blown from a kiln into salt-laden air.

This 10 year old malt epitomizes the taste of Islay; rich, smoky and peaty. Known as "the most richly flavored of all Scotch whiskies," Laphroaig is widely considered one of the finest distilleries in the world. That they've held that distinction for two hundred years is nothing short of awe inspiring. Laphroaig continues to maintain an on-site malting operation, which accounts for a small but significant chunk of the barley that they distill.

Ends on a sweet malty note. Builds from stage to stage, each phase being better than the last. *Best Buy*" (6/2006) Whisky Advocate: "Funny to think how recently Caol Ila was an Islay giant that was kept pretty much under wraps by its owner.

Underneath Talisker’s smoke, which ain't as all-pervading as Lagavulin, is a sweet pear-like quality.

It finishes flavorful, though with a distinct burst of alcohol warmth. (KN)" (12/2015) Whisky Advocate: "A new addition to the permanent Balvenie range. Lovely bright gold color. Layers of sweetness (the characteristic Balvenie honey, along with vanilla fudge, nougat, and rich toffee) peppered with dried spice and a hint of tropical fruit (papaya, guava, tanger ...Read More »

Laphroaig 10 Year Old Original Cask Strength Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Islay's Laphroaig is famed for its intensely peaty profile, and this single-malt Scotch delivers on that reputation. The amber spirit opens with a smoky aroma that's underpinned by vanilla and light floral notes. There's plenty of peat on the palate too, backed by olive brine, espresso and chocolate characteristics. (KN)" (12/2015) Whisky Advocate: "Pungent and medicinal in personality, with gobs of peat, tar, iodine, brine, and seaweed. These are all good things.in case you were wondering. A gentle vanilla sweetness tries to tame this savage beast, but it is no match. One ...Read More »

Macallan "Double Cask" 12 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

90 points Whisky Advocate: "This straddles the existing Sherry Oak and Fine Oak ranges by being a mix of spirit matured in both European and American oak sherry casks. Earthy sherry and old leather on the nose, with toffee, polished oak, and cherry blossom. Medium to full-bodied, with sherry, orange, cocoa, nutty vanilla, and developing wood spices on the honeyed palate. The finish is creamy, with insistent spices, cocoa, and tangy oak. (GS, Spring 2017)" K&L Notes: Macallan's latest release is a 12-year-old "double cask" malt, meaning the whisky spent time in both sherry-seasoned new American ... Read More »

Highland Park 12 Year Old Isle of Orkney Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 50 Spirits, 2011* Elegant, light and pretty. This amber spirit has a light, briny vanilla scent and a silky feel. A veil of smoke rises through the Scotch (but fades out fast), leaving behind a sweet nutty, vanilla finish." (12/2011) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "Highland Park 12 Year Old boasts individuality and complexity, thanks in part to the use of Orcadian peat in the distillery floor maltings and the employment of ex-sherry casks for maturation. The nose is fragrant and floral, with hints of heather and some spice. Smooth and honeyed on the palate, with citrus fruits, malt, ...Read More »

Glendronach 12 Year Old Distillery Bottling Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "Nicely sherried. Rich, with maple syrup, honey-drenched citrus, sultana, and a good dried oak spice finish for balance. Well done for a 12 year old, and definite competition for Macallan of the same age. (Vol. 19, #2)" K&L Notes: Glendronach was one of our favorite distilleries on our recent trip to Scotland and this 12 year is the best whisky that no one is drinking. Soft, supple, rich, and complex, and finished in PX sherry butts for a kiss of sweetness. This is my new house whisky and I can't recommend it highly enough. It's not going to blow your mind, it's just ... Read More »

Cragganmore 12 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* The succulent aroma develops with aeration in the sweet forms of barley, cream, light caramel, and a trace of tropical fruit. Palate entry is round, borderline plump, breakfast-cereal sweet, and honeyed; at midpalate, there's a slightly oily peat smoke. Sweetly concludes with the focus on the malt." (6/2006) Whisky Advocate: "This oft-overlooked Speysider has been frustratingly variable in the past, but now seems to have hit greater consistency. Worm tubs and weird stills combine to give a complex malt, but one that needs help from oak to blossom fully. There are ...Read More »

Glenmorangie 18 year old Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $140)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The initial whiffs find layers of honey, flowers and light toffee; air contact stimulates aromas of pine needle, caramel, nougat, marzipan, chocolate orange and stewed apple. The palate entry is totally dry then turns bittersweet and pork rind-like; at midpalate tastes of burnt apple crisp, orange zest, fudge and candied nuts appear. Finishes as grandly and stately as it began." (6/2006) Whisky Advocate: "43% abv. When compared to the 10 year old, this one's richer, with darker fruit and more caramelized sweet notes, paired with accentuated dried wood spice, while the 10 ye ...Read More »

Macallan 18 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Speyside single malt is matured in Sherry oak casks from Jerez, Spain, for a minimum of 18 years. The amber spirit has a big, warm caramel flavor, finishing with a touch of sweet honey, bitter chocolate and espresso on the lingering finish. Viscous, creamy mouthfeel. (KN)" (12/2011) 91 points Whisky Advocate: "Macallan's 18 year old expression is, for me, the highlight of its regular sherried range. Deep amber in color. The nose is rich and heavily fruited: fruit cake, mulberry, a little moist gingerbread, the bloody depths of molasses. On the palate, dried fruits — more figgy t ...Read More »
