As one of the few distilleries allowed to remain operational during Prohibition, Old Forester is celebrating this part of its history with with its Whiskey Row series. According to the distillery: "The 115 proof expression represents a barrel sample that company president Owsley Brown I would have batched at the beginning of Prohibition. The nose is an intense medley of cherry preserves, drippy caramel, dark chocolate, thickened maple syrup and seasoned oak spiciness. Dark caramel coats layers of malt nuttiness and sweet graham cracker all warmed by gree... Read More »

Rittenhouse Bottled in Bond 100 Proof Rye Whiskey (750ml)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Intensely woody aromas and succulent marshmallow, bakery and lanolin scents spring forth. The fat palate entry oozes butter cream, dark caramel, and brown sugar tastes; the midpalate focuses more on the grain aspect as the flavor becomes toasty, fruity and honeyed. Ends honey sweet, decadent and maple-like. An unbelievable bargain." (4/2007) 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.

In some ways, this evokes an ultradry version of an orange liqueur, with juicy orange notes dusted with black pepper, clove, nutmeg and a faint hoppy note."

Basil Hayden's Bourbon (750ml)

Basil Hayden's Bourbon dates back to 1796 when Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. created a new bourbon recipe using a traditional corn base, but adding small grains into his mash. The results showcased the spicy flavors of rye, which complemented the sweetness of corn. Today Basil Hayden's is aged for eight years at a relatively mild 80 proof, and glints like liquid gold in the glass. Its spicy-sweet perfume shows hints of peppermint and black tea and its flavors are spicy, peppery and honeyed, with a light body and a gentle bite. According to Patterson'... Read More »

Heaven Hill's flag ship single barrel remains one of the best values in American whiskey period. Each cask is different, but the general profile for EWSB is all about balance. A strong fruity note and a rich vanilla undertone, balance the rich honey notes and spicy backbone on the palate. This is a medium bodied highly drinkable whiskey with tons of finesse and character. We're on the 2007 vintage here.

2001 Knob Creek "Batch 3" Limited Edition Whiskey (750ml)

In 2001, following years of tough love and training, Booker Noe passed the torch of Knob Creek to his son Fred who carried on the tradition ever since. The 2001 Limited Edition Knob Creek series is a tribute to that transition and the relationship between the father and son distillers. One of three 14 year old batches released by Beam, batch three is not quite as sweet as batch one and not quite of tannic as batch two, ending up somewhere in between with robust oak and plenty of sweetness.

Jefferson's Very Small Batch Bourbon (750ml) (Previously $35)

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 (which I rated 81). 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 delicate, small batch Kentucky bourbon with stone fruit, vanilla and oak notes on the nose. It is smooth and sweet on the palate with a kiss of orange, wood smoke and a mulled berry flavors.

Woodford Reserve Double Oak Bourbon (750ml)

Woodford Reserve's Double Oak is exactly what it sounds like: the classic Woodford Reserve Bourbon put back into new charred oak barrels for a double maturation. Not only are the barrels charred in this case, but they're charred to the blackest possible level (any further and the wood would simply disintegrate). The result is a Bourbon with big richness and tons of new oak flavor. You can even catch that little note of blackened oak spice on the finish.

Old Forester 86 Proof Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whisky (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "0 This tawny Bourbon has a rich, spiced scent reminiscent of fruitcake. On the palate, look for caramel studded with dried cherry, orange peel and clove, finishing quite dry. A great profile for classic cocktails, and not too precious to mix. (KN)" (9/2014)

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...

Four Roses 9 Year 6 Month Old "K&L Exclusive OBSQ" Single Barrel Cask Strength Kentucky Bourbon (750ml) New!
Four Roses 9 Year 6 Month Old "K&L Exclusive OBSQ" Single Barrel Cask Strength Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

Our latest edition of OBSQ encapsulates everything Bourbon drinkers love about higher rye recipes; namely, the combination of richness and peppery spice that act as the yin and yang of a balanced American whiskey. The B in OBSK means we're dealing with a 60% corn, 35% rye Four Roses mashbill (the other 5% the standard malted barley addition), and you can taste every bit of that formula at play. The first sip brings a wave of dark cocoa and polished wood without any of the floral aromas that the Q yeast strain is known to propagate. The nose is more of th... Read More »
