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

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "A versatile must-have for mixing cocktails, look for pleasing vanilla, maple and a hint of dried cherry. The finish is long and drying, with plenty of baking spice notes. (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. Rye was the first Colonial American whiskey, and was the most popular spirit in the US for more than a century until it fell out of favor. Made in a classic Pennsylvania style at the Heaven Hill distillery in Kentucky, this has been ... Read More »

Eagle Rare 10 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "Ten years of barrel time has created a concentrated caramel scent and palate spiked with sarsaparilla and allspice, finishing spicy and quite hot, with a fleeting orange peel note. Balances with a bit of branchwater, but needs a light touch. *Best Buy* (KN)" (7/2015) K&L Notes: Buffalo Trace was named Distiller of the Year by Whisky Magazine in 2005 and 2007 and by Wine Enthusiast in 2006.

Russell's Reserve "K&L Exclusive" Single Barrel #376 Kentucky Bourbon (750ml) (Previously $65)

We rummaged through the warehouses with both Jimmy and Eddy Russell to dig out this single barrel of Wild Turkey, cask #376, and instantly pulled the trigger once we tasted it. The bourbon has a round and mouthcoating texture, combined with loads of spice and oak char. Originally filled in November of 2008, we bottled this baby right around its ninth birthday, about the time Jimmy Russell believes these Wild Turkey whiskeys show their best. Emptied at 113.7 proof, everything about this whiskey showcases the textbook and trademark characteristics of the d... Read More »

Then it’s pumice, apricot, and marmalade, followed by salt water taffy, cinnamon, and a big burst of nutmeg. A long finish offers a hint of peach pie.

Woodinville Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

And most importantly...they waited. Patiently biding their time, they opted to only release whiskey in Washington State so they slowly build their stocks and bring a truly quality product to market in the 5-6 year old range. Rig...

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.

Noah's Mill Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "From the folks at Willett distillery, Noah’s Mill has less than 20 barrels in a batch and will include 15 year old barrels in the dump. The deep amber color prepares the nose for what promises to be an exciting ride. Aromas of ginger, plums, cinnamon, fresh-baked cornbread, and fresh-squeezed cherries. The warm palate packs caramel, nutmeg, and vanilla with lovely cinnamon on the finish. Sourced whiskey. (FM, Spring 2016)" Wine Spectator: "A fiery oak nose eventually yields sweet corn, herbal grass notes and light vanilla. Laser-intense flavors of mint, rye and eau-de-vie- ...Read More »

Russell's Reserve "Small Batch" 6 Year Old Rye 90 Proof (750ml) (3 bottle limit per customer)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The warm and fruity scent is reminiscent of fresh apples drizzled with caramel. On the palate, spicy cinnamon leads, softening to caramel midpalate and finishing with sizzling cinnamon, clove and cayenne pepper. Adjusted with water, a saline note emerges, creating a pleasing salted caramel-like sipper. (KN)" (7/2015) Whisky Advocate: "Incredibly smooth for a rye whiskey (almost too smooth), but still with plenty of character to make the journey very entertaining. Notes of evergreen, almonds, and bright fruit lie on a bed of caramel, honeyed vanilla, and banana bread. Linger ...Read More »

Pikesville Straight Kentucky Rye (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Look for a rich caramel-maple aroma and spice-forward flavor profile, showing allspice and clove, with a layer of vanilla underneath. Dilution tames this rye to show more vanilla, accented with dry touches of oak, leather and cocoa. Aged at least six years. Sip or mix. (KN)" (7/2016) K&L Notes: First produced in Maryland in the 1890s, this brand moved to Kentucky after Prohibition and is now operated by Heaven Hill, honored as "Distillery of the Year" and "at the spearhead of the rye resurgence" by Whisky Advocate in 2011. Tasting notes from the producer: "Dusty coc... Read More »

Wathen’s Private Barrel #59 "K&L Exclusive" Single Barrel Straight Kentucky Bourbon (750ml) Top Pick!
Wathen’s Private Barrel #59 "K&L Exclusive" Single Barrel Straight Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

Here's another stupendous cask from our friends at Wathen's. If you don't already know, Wathen's (bottled by father and son team Charles & Sam Medley) is one of the country's most well respected non-distillery producers. We refer to them as non-distillery producer rather than non-distiller producer because of course Charles Medley is one of Kentucky's most well respected distillers. He had decades of experience running the old Owensboro plant, before moving toward contract production. That means he's got a special relationship with his contracted produce... Read More »

Rowan's Creek takes its namesake from the creek that runs directly through the distillery. This creek still carries the best limestone spring water that is essential for making good bourbon.

Lost Republic Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

One of the more interesting and intriguing independent bottlings of bourbon since Black Maple Hill went out of production, Lost Republic whiskey is made of three different bourbons from three different states: Indiana, Tennessee and California. Matt Weese and his team in Healdsburg are contracting spirits and aging the barrels separately in their Napa warehouse, using them to create a fruity, grainy and gritty style of American whiskey. The fruity, young whiskey aromas are potent on the nose, but the woody, vanilla notes balance out the youth on the pala... Read More »

George Dickel "K&L Exclusive" 9 Year Old Single Barrel #L8040K1007 Tennessee Whiskey (750ml) Top Pick!
George Dickel "K&L Exclusive" 9 Year Old Single Barrel #L8040K1007 Tennessee Whiskey (750ml)

When you talk to passionate bourbon drinkers today, most of them are looking for the rich, sweet, boldly flavored, high-proof editions that seem to have completely evaporated from today's market. Part of the reason the Van Winkle expressions (and the Weller bourbons by default) became so beloved, besides the pull of pop culture, has to do with their sweeter profile due to the lack of rye grain in the mash bill as a balance. While not technically categorized as bourbon (Dickel goes by Tennessee whiskey even though it qualifies as such), the distillery's h... Read More »
