David Nicholson 1843 100 Proof Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

I put a few glasses of the David Nicholson 1843 in the hands of my assistants here at K&L and told them it was a sample from a new Weller 107 single barrel that I had just purchased. Their eyes lit up and not one of them assumed the whiskey wasn't what I said it was. In fact, they were downright stoked about the quality. Then I immediately confessed. Alas, it was not Weller 107, but rather a new 100 proof wheated Bourbon from Luxco, the folks behind Rebel Yell and Ezra Brooks. How much would it cost, they asked? A cool $26.99, I replied. The nose is an a... Read More »

Hendrick's Scottish Gin (750ml) Top Pick!
Hendrick's Scottish Gin (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This gin has a fierce following, in part because of its quirky brand personality (see the Monty Python-esque website) and aggressive marketing among bartenders. But it lives up to the hype. Some might expect a more concentrated rosewater-cucumber profile, but it's relatively subtle, with just a hint of cucumber mingling with juniper in the aroma, and white pepper, citrus and floral notes on the lingering finish. (KN)" (4/2012) K&L Notes: This unique, handcrafted gin has been infused with cucumber and rose petals. Very aromatic with a smooth sweet flavor and very long... Read More »

Fukano K&L Exclusive Single Cask #2827 Japanese Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Fukano K&L Exclusive Single Cask #2827 Japanese Whisky (750ml)

When I first met Fukano-san over some very tasty Korean BBQ, her air of sophistication and elegant demeanor belied her ability to drink the entire crew under the table. While she was rather restrained that evening, but the other distillers regailed me with stories about her prowess. They had great respect for her not only because she was champion of the bar, but also because they knew her distillery is producing some of Kumamoto's finest spirit. Fukano-san is the head of one of the Kuma Valley's best producers, famous for a local Shochu called Saiba as w... Read More »

Four Roses 8 Year 9 Month Old "K&L Exclusive OESQ" Single Barrel Cask Strength Bourbon (750ml)

If you're fixin' for some Four Roses going into the holiday season, we've got you covered with two new potent potions that I picked out at the distillery this past September. The single casks from Cox's Creek warehouse are always among the most coveted bottles that we bring in directly, and with allocations on lock down from the distillery, our demand for cask-strength, single-barrel Four Roses has never been higher! The moderately proofed OESQ is a 53.9% ABV specimen for those who enjoy a bit of banana in their bourbon. The nose is a mix of bananas fost... Read More »

Dolin Dry Vermouth de Chambery (375ml)

Made to the same set of recipes since 1821, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry has long been the benchmark for fine French Vermouth. Made with fine wines of the region and botanicals found in the alpine meadows above Chambéry, together they impart a fresh and elegant nose, with a subtle and complex palate. Ideal as an aperitif or in cocktails. In the late 19th century, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry won medals in Paris, London, St. Louis and Philadelphia and in 1932 earned Chambéry France's only Appellation d’ Origine for Vermouth.

Nonino Quintessentia Amaro (750ml)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tawny and bright in the glass, this mellow, bittersweet beauty offers caramel and vanilla, braced by allspice and bitter orange. Although Nonino is best known for its grappas, this amaro, flavored with herbs from the mountains of Friuli, is worth seeking out. Consider it for dessert pairings or an edgy spin on a negroni. (KN)" (4/2014) K&L Notes: From Distillatori Nonino in Italy's Friuli. This amaro is a grape distillate infused with herbs and aged in barrique, the Quinessentia Amaro Nonino shows fragrant mountain herbs. It's delicious as an aperitivo served with a ... Read More »

Nikka Coffey Still Japanese Grain Whisky (750ml)

92 points Whisky Advocate: "Sweet, with subtle, crisp, nutty oak, then comes fudge, ripe banana, and peach. The overall effect is like eating vanilla ice cream with toffee fudge and hazelnut sprinkles. The structure is thick and physical, the palate sweet and quite fat, with light hints of raspberry, fruit salad. A jag of acidity freshens the delivery on the finish. With water there’s more toffee, and it becomes slightly more yielding, with less oak. For me the gold standard of grain. (DB, Fall 2015)" 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The name of this whisky has nothing to do with coffee—rather, it's named for a type ...Read More »

Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva Venezuelan Rum (750ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet offers integrated scents of roasted chestnut, dried tobacco leaf, maple, orange zest, brown sugar, cinnamon and egg cream. The palate entry is curiously medicinal; the midpalate improves as the taste includes bittersweet flavors of old oak, wood resin, molasses and tree sap. Concludes intensely sap- and maple-like."

The rich, vibrant flavor profile offers complex notes backed by a balanced bitter undertone. Enjoy neat or mixed in numerous classic cocktails. To celebrate its 120th anniversary, the House of Cocchi has resumed production of its original recipe for Vermouth di Torino, first offered in 1891.

High West "American Prairie" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

There are times when flavor alone means everything and that was certainly the case while choosing this single barrel of High West "American Prairie," a blend of straight bourbons from MGP in Indiana and what's long been rumored to be Four Roses (whether that's still the case in the new Constellation era, I don't know). What I do know, however, is that about two years ago an empty barrel of the High West "Rendezvous" rye was filled with a finished batch of "American Prairie" and it was allowed to sit for an additional year and a half, marrying the flavors...

Daniel Bouju "K&L Exclusive" Cognac Fines Saveurs (750ml)

Francois Bouju is the man running the show these days at Bouju Cognac. He's incredibly nice, knows a lot about distillation, taught us a great deal about the region and its wines, and impressed us beyond any expectation we had going in to our appointment. His vines are planted in the best soils: rich limestone which helps to preserve acidity in the fruit, and he is a stickler for detail. The reason the Grand Champagne region makes what is considered the best Cognac is because the soil creates grapes that are fully ripe with high acidity levels and low al... Read More »

Ferrand Dry Orange Curacao (750ml) Top Pick!
Ferrand Dry Orange Curacao (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "New to the U.S. market in 2012, this 'dry' Curaçao is intriguing and should work well as a sophisticated sweetener alongside bitter-edged spirits and darker, biting spirits like rye whiskey. While not precisely dry, this golden liqueur has its vanilla sweetness tempered by a wash of bitter orange. The scent is rich and agave-like, with a touch of mezcal-like funkiness. (KN)" (2/2012) K&L Notes: Designed by renowned cocktailian David Wondrich, this is perhaps the finest orange liqueur available for mixing. Try it in a Sidecar or Corpse Reviver for spectacular results.

Cimarron Reposado Tequila (1L) (Elsewhere $32)

From the distillery of Enrique Fonseca, the man behind the legendary K&L Fuenteseca, comes this value-priced label of liter-sized tequila that seems almost too good to be true. I'm willing to bet we'll have a problem selling the Cimarron selections, rather than the ridiculous success we should experience, simply because people will wonder why it's so cheap?

Amaro Angeleno (750ml) Back In Stock!
Amaro Angeleno (750ml)

Amaro Angeleno is LA's answer to the exploding Amaro scene. The Italian culture of drinking bitter liqueurs is centuries old. Since at least the early 1700s, distillers across Apennine peninsula have carefully guarded their secret recipes, usually traced back to some famous monastery, often promising good health, strong loins, or long life. Using both local and exotic ingredients they created something truly unique to that place. In that image, Amaro Angeleno was created to be a true product of terroir, inspired by those that came before, but distinct fr... Read More »

This limited edition gem is redefining the Stolen brand as well as the Jamaican rum in general.

Stolen Rum sourced these 5000 bottles from the exceptional Hampden Estate and it represents the essence of Jamaican Rum's potential.

The palate entry is soft and firm; the midpalate is integrated, harmonious and exquisitely balanced between alcohol level, sweetness, acidity and floral impact. A perfect liqueur."

On the palate, it's full-bodied, with bitter orange peel and stone fruit flavors, with lingering vanilla and oak. The alcohol feels relatively balanced, but it creeps up on you. This needs dilution, so use it in punches as intended and you'll be fine. (KN)" (12/2013) K&L Notes: *94 Points, Highly Recommended* from the 2012 Ultimate Spirit Challenge.

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Silky and downright succulent, this Scotch is made with two types of oak casks—as the DoubleWood name suggests—but it’s really all about the influence of the ex-Sherry cask. Aromas suggest golden raisins and dried apricots. The silky palate starts out moderately smoky, but glides into a richer, honeyed, nutty profile that finishes with cocoa and clove accents.

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.

A fifth-generation grower and master distiller who holds one of the largest plots of agave in the industry, this añejo is made to showcase the oak without overshadowing the agave.
