2006 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux
Review Date: 03-09-2011
Modern, Clean, ripe, vibrant and pleasurable. Youthful, but very open. Nose: Floral, spice, ripe red fruit. Palate: Coffee, mole, earth, not overtly oaky. Great length.

Maraska Maraschino Liqueur (750ml)
Review Date: 07-05-2009
This is a great little product coming out of Croatia that several in-the-know mixologists insist on having. Specifically, it posseses a touch more sweetness than its Italian counterpart, Luxardo (also extremely delicious), so you can afford to leave out some sugar in your Aviation or other Maraschino cocktail.

Rowan's Creek Bourbon (750ml)
Review Date: 08-22-2008
Incredibly balanced, its zesty aromatics feature some surprising honeysuckle and jasmine notes. The mouthfeel is supple but not thick; there’s also a subdued sweetness with just a touch of pepper and no detectable heat. Attractively packaged and reasonably priced, something this good can’t last forever.

Lillet Blanc (750ml)
Review Date: 07-18-2008
This white wine-based aperitif was created in 1887 in Bordeaux and originally had a high quinine content (presumably to treat malaria). Quinine is synthesized from the Kina-Kina tree, hence the drink’s original name: Kina Lillet. The original recipe was made famous by Ian Fleming in Casino Royal as a key component in the infamous “James Bond Martini.” This blend of fruit liqueurs and fortified wine was originally marketed as a tonic of great medicinal quality. These days there’s a new, friendlier Lillet with less quinine and it still lends itself to making cocktails, like the famous Edith’s Fizz.

St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur (750ml)
Review Date: 06-18-2008
A first-of-its-kind elderflower liqueur. Wild alpine blossoms are hand-harvested and macerated. Then, through a proprietary fermentation/distillation process the delicate aromatics are released from this wonderful gem, which has a supple but never syrupy texture.

Domaine de Canton Ginger & Cognac Liqueur (750ml)
Review Date: 06-18-2008
Popular with the French since colonial times, this Ginger Cognac Liqueur melds the subtle heat of baby Vietnamese ginger root with the depth of flavor of Grand Champagne Cognac. The addition of spices, honey, and Tunisian ginseng make for a magnificently complex handmade elixir without preservatives or colorants.
