Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $25)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* A good workhorse for all manner of cocktails, this bright amber Bourbon has a butterscotch aroma and oaky, relatively dry flavors that elongate into a rich caramel finish." (7/2013) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "Light bronze color. Thick, mature aromas, with notes of subtle spice (vanilla, mint), toffee, light molasses and leather. Adding a little water revealing notes of teaberry, anise, and dark candied fruit. Pleasantly sweet at first in flavor, with notes of brown sugar and spice (vanilla, mint), becoming dry with enveloping flavors of oak and leather. With a little wate ...Read More »

Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) Top Pick!
Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This uncut, barrel-strength bourbon is bold and flavorful. The caramel aroma is rich and luxe. On the palate, it’s quite tannic and drying, but the flavor shines through, showing toffee, caramel and dried cherry, with a spicy finish of clove, dried fig and date. The alcohol feels remarkably balanced despite the high proof. It needs no adornment: just add a chunk of ice and enjoy. (KN)" (9/2014) 91 points Whisky Advocate: "If Picasso sketched bourbon, it would look like Booker’s, with deep golden and auburn hues. But higher-proof color can deceive. Not here.

Angel's Envy 86 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "A beautiful, mouthwatering newcomer to the whiskey scene. Named for the 'angel’s share,' the portion that evaporates from the barrel during the aging process, this golden amber spirit is finished in Port barrels, which explains those juicy red-fruit notes that slide into the long finish. Look for orange peel, vanilla and roasted nut flavors, too. (KN)" (7/2012) 93 points Whisky Advocate: "Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey finished in a port pipe. This is veteran master distiller Lincoln Henderson’s newest creation, and it's a beauty. Richly textured, silky, and well-rounded, with ri ...Read More »

(KN)" (7/2016) K&L Notes: Named North American Whiskey of the Year at the 2006 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Best Buy of the Year at the 2006 WhiskeyFest.

Old Forester "1920 Prohibition Style" Kentucky Bourbon Whisky (750ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The perfect proof. Rich in color, aroma, and flavor. It begins with powerful caramel, baking spice, chocolate, cherries, cinnamon, and toffee. Then nuance and complexity. Honey, jalapeño, rosemary, crème brûlée, malt, and fruit, from the spicy citrus of grapefruit to prunes and dried apricots. Hard to believe this is over 100 proof, as you never sense the strength challenging you to find what’s next amidst the subtlety. Extremely long finish with cherry, cinnamon, and caramel. Value Pick.

The palate entry is surprisingly sweet and corny, considering how dry the aroma is; the midpalate point is deep, corny sweet, sap-like and a bit syrupy. Ends up well and balanced, with a backnote of dried red fruit (raisins, prunes)." (12/2007) K&L Notes: Four Stars/Highly Recommended F.

Entry is nicely sweet and intensely grainy; the midpalate is the high point as the taste profile expands to include semisweet flavors of caramel corn, toasted marshmallow, dried fruit and chocolate covered cherry. Concludes oaky sweet and chewy." (12/2008) K&L Notes: You know it, you love it; it's ten years old, bottled in bond, single cask, 100 proof, old school Kentucky Bourbon from Heaven Hill.

Mellow, long finish with a touch of herbal and anise notes. (KN)" (10/2010) 91 points Whisky Advocate: "Subtly complex and nicely rounded.

Nuances of crème brûlée, caramel popcorn, maple syrup, and caramelized corn with hints of cola, raspberry, and apple tart.

Old Bardstown Estate Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

95 points from Jim Murray's Whisky Bible. The Old Bardstown Estate is one of KBD's premium offerings and bottled at 101 proof. It's a high corn recipe, so less spice and more round rich flavors than some of KBD's other high-end offerings. For all those missing Black Maple Hill's juice, this might be a solid substitute.

Wild Turkey 101 Rye 1L

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Look for bold vanilla aroma, a drying feel and loads of vanilla, brown sugar and even touches of butterscotch on the exceedingly long finish. It's surprisingly smooth for a 101-proof product, although the alcohol indeed makes its presence known. It stands up well to dilution, which blunts the alcohol edge and coaxes out more vanilla." (7/2015) K&L Notes: The modern classic returns in a new 1L bottle! The Kickin' Chicken is finally back on the shelf!

Jim Beam K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #JB5456 Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

While Beam may have hired Mila Kunis to do its commercials, the distillery won't need to invest much in marketing if it can continue to offer single barrels like this one to key retail accounts.

Woodford Reserve Rye (750ml) (Previously $40)

Whisky Advocate: "Distilled from a relatively low-rye mash of 53% rye, 33% corn, 14% malt; true to Woodford Reserve form, a mingling of whiskeys distilled at Woodford and at Brown-Forman in Louisville. Nose of leather, cinnamon, rye snappiness, and hints of red raspberry. Hot and lean on the palate, spicy/sweet until rye’s bitter layering floats in, making for a dry finish as the oak comes on stronger. Balances drinkable and elegant quite nicely, and it’s real Woodford. (Summer 2015)" K&L Notes: Woodford Reserve's new rye whiskey is not only delicious, it's one of the most interesting...

Jefferson's Reserve Very Old Bourbon (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "The whiskey's formula has been improved, and now consists of a higher percentage of older whiskies (into the high teens) than the original release...Nicely balanced, with candied fruit, blackberry jam, soft vanilla, kettle corn, and a kiss of mint. Pleasant, unpretentious, and uncomplicated. (Vol. 20, #3)" K&L Notes: A medium-weight, small batch, aged bourbon that delivers richness and elegance. Aromas of peaches, vanilla, raisins and butterscotch carry through to the palate, which also shows flavors suggestive of dates, orange and blackberry. Sweet, and warm through... Read More »

Wild Turkey Rare Breed Small Batch Barrel Proof Bourbon (750ml)

Wild Turkey Rare Breed is a high proof marriage of casks that brings more power and spice than some of the other more mellow WT expressions. It's woodier with more of the charred oak influence, but it handles that oak quite well. The finish leans more towards the herbaceous, but if you hang on until the end there's a lovely toffee and caramel note that sings a late swan song. Very fun whiskey that goes down way to easily. 93 pts from the Beverage Testing Institute: "Copper color. Dense aromas of coconut, caramel, cherry, and glued wood with a supple, dr... Read More »
