My friends the Morrisons over at A.D. Rattray have really outdone themselves with this, their fantastic Bank Note Blended Scotch for $19.99 a liter!!! Now, granted, some of the high-browed single malt drinkers out there might not even flinch about something like this, but trust me, anyone interested in pouring a whisky on the rocks is going to have a new house bottle--forever. At this price and for whisky this drinkable, I can't see anyone coming close to touching the Bank Note. The sherry influence is there, soft vanilla and all that, and the grain come... Read More »
95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 50 Spirits of 2011* A honey-colored whisky with a spicy, smoky fragrance. The first sip is surprisingly sweet and honeyed, then the smoke gently creeps in like fog at dawn, softly surrounding the edges of the tongue." (9/2011) K&L Notes: Johnnie Walker Blue Label is crafted from the finest and rarest casks in the producer's extensive stocks to exemplify the art of blended whiskies. A whisky of power, smoothness, and signature smokiness is the result. Influences from across Scotland are layered in the profile, with the smokiness of the west and the rich, sweet w... Read More »
Special order items are not in stock and are dependent upon quantity available from distribution. All special orders are final and non-refundable. Originally known as Extra Special Old Highland Whisky, Johnnie Walker Red label is a favorite, everyday whisky. Spicy and smoky, this is a robust Scotch whisky best as a long drink.
91 points Whisky Advocate: "After a series of esoteric and expensive releases, Compass Box has decided to bring it all back to the people with a blend - and how! The journey sets out as we might expect; all sweet vanilla ice cream, stewed pear tart, and peach melba, but then a wave of spice and white pepper provides an unexpected but delightful twist. It’s like Spice Tree meets Hedonism... Spiconism if you like. (Vol. 20, #3)" K&L Notes: The illustrious John Glaser does it again with this exceptional little blend. This guy is single handedly making blended whisky cool again and owning a bottle ... Read More »
Not Chill filtered, natural color. Full, rich and smoky on the palate, with notes of baking spices and sherry wine notes. A recipe made from a very high proportion of Highland and Islay single malts, combined with Lowland single grain whisky. Matured in a combination of Sherry oak, American oak and French oak casks.
93 points Whisky Advocate: "Recognizably Spice Tree, but it’s richer, more dapper, traveling in style, and wearing better shoes. Peanut brittle, toasted coconut, and pale, light sherry. Honeyed palate with caramelized sugar, red apple, and red berry fruit before the gingersnaps and clove bite. It revs up with another spicy blast for the finish. A tasty fifth Tenth Anniversary bottling from Compass Box; just don’t let yesterday take up too much of today. (JM, Spring 2017)" K&L Notes: This is a blend of 60% aged malt whisky from the Clynelish distillery, 20% aged malt whisky from the Dailuaine di... Read More »
Compass Box's Hedonism is an unusual style of 100% blended grain Scotch whisky. They only produce it once a year. This year's batch (code H29MMIX) comprises just 14 carefully-selected, first-fill American oak casks. The whisky derives depth and complexity from 29-year-old Carsebridge, while 18-year-old Cambus and 14-year-old Cameronbridge provide a sweet, fruit structure. Hedonism's signature finish is long and full of vanilla cream, toffee and a touch of coconut. As an aperitif, serve with a small amount of chilled water. Late in the evening, serve nea... Read More »
Whisky Advocate: "What a surprise! Really thick and malty for a blend (there’s a high malt content here for sure), and also nicely mature for 8 years old. Great balance too, with the island aggressiveness tamed by a rich, malty elegance. Delicious honey, toasted oak, firm peat, dark chocolate, and glazed citrus meld nicely with the malt, leading to a honeyed, lightly-peppered finish. Very enjoyable. (JH, Fall 2009)" K&L Notes: The Isle of Skye is perhaps the best deal on whisky in the entire store, a perfectly balanced, blended malt that is sure to appeal to even the most strict singl...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 50 Spirits of 2011* A top choice for those who prefer a lighter whisky style. The pale straw color and gentle vanilla and fresh pear aromas hint at what’s to come. On the palate, expect a flash of sweetness, finishing with caramel and a faint veil of smoke. Mouthwatering." (9/2011) Whisky Advocate: "Gold color. Floral aromas balanced with a gentle vanilla sweetness, and soft fruit. Soft, rounded body. The palate delivers what the aroma promises in a very clean and balanced way. Pleasing finish. (JH, Fall 2002)"
Producer notes: "Johnnie Walker Platinum Label was inspired by the tradition of giving private blends to a close circle of family and friends by John Walker & Sons. Blended from Scotch Whiskies that have matured for at least 18 years, it combines sophisticated and contemporary tastes with classic Johnnie Walker flavors. When you want to make a special occasion truly exceptional, Johnnie Walker Platinum Label 18 Year Old is the discerning choice."

Blended together and then aged for additional months in oak casks, this new, more mature blend of Isle of Skye is far superior to its 8-years-aged counterpart. While the 8-year has a classic grain component, the 12-year smooths all of that greenness out with more supple wood, rounding out the palate and really bringing the Talisker smoke to the forefront. For less than $40, this is one of the hottest deals we have in Scotch. It's meant to be drunk on the rocks, but you could have a great time sipping this one. Supple vanilla, smoky peat, and a long, smoo... Read More »
This is a dynamite new release from Cutty Sark, a 100 proof blend that brings the punch and offers serious value for the dollar (I wonder where they got that idea? Cough...Faultline....cough). Made entirely of Macallan, Highland Park, Glenrothes, and North British, it's a clear winner. For less than $30, it's a hot deal.
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* This unusual whiskey was built like a Bourbon—made with 100% corn and aged in ex-Bourbon casks for an average of five years—but sips like a mellow Canadian whiskey. It's supersoft, with lots of vanilla and sweet maple, plus a gentle, drying finish of allspice and clove. A surprising, rounded black cherry note suggests Manhattans in this whiskey's future. (KN)" (3/2016) Whisky Advocate: "South Africa may be home to an increasingly impressive wine industry — and a noted brandy producer — but the country is also home to two whisky distilleries.

93 points Whisky Advocate: "There has been an excellent streak of Islay blended malts recently, and here is another worthy contender from the Spencerfield Spirit Company. This one offers the sizzle of bacon fat, thick clods of peat, cocoa, and breezy smoke. The rounded palate has sweet satsuma, spice, generous malty notes, and burnt caramel. The wafting smoke builds until it engulfs the back of the palate. You will be wanting one of these. (JM, Spring 2017)" K&L Notes: This spirit is the product of all peated single malts from Islay and has no additions of grain whisky.

Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet features round, fruity fragrances supplemented by hints of light toffee and marzipan; Entry is full-bodied and oaky; midpalate features a seductively sensuous and satiny texture plus evolved flavors of caramel, maple, fudge and chocolate-covered orange peel. Finish is like chocolate-covered peanuts and honey." (3/2009) K&L Notes: Special Order Only! Special order items are not in stock and are dependent upon quantity available from distribution.
