Faultline Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) Top Pick!
Faultline Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

We've been doing gin and single malt for years, and now rum, so why not throw our hat in the bourbon pool? One of the obstacles that kept us from making a Faultline bourbon earlier was availability: the current demand has made the extra barrel a thing of the past. One of the only distilleries that would sell us a cask for a private label was the old LDI distillery in Indiana, but with the already overcrowded LDI market (Bulleit Rye, Templeton Rye, High West, etc) we didn't think our product would be different enough, or of the quality we desired, for the...

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

Buffalo Trace was named Distiller of the Year by Whisky Magazine in 2005 and 2007 and by the Wine Enthusiast in 2006. Paul Pacult of the The Spirit Journal gave it four stars and said: "Easily one of the most tactile yet assertive and expressive bourbons I've tasted in the last two years; fasten your seatbelts." Honey-colored, with aromas of toasted wheat bread and hints of tobacco, opening up to almond butter, melon and lanolin. On the palate it is oily and toasty with flavors of cereal grains and oak.

Wathen’s Private Barrel K&L Wine/Chestnut Club Single Barrel Straight Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

While the proliferation of "new" bourbon brands continues, prescious few of these can actually claim a history in Kentucky distillation. The Medley Family is a real exception to the rule for a "non-distiller producer". With centuries of family history in the business and Charles Medley's decades of hands on experience at the Owensboro Distillery in northwestern Kentucky, Medley brands stand as a unique example of an old school contract distillery starkly different from the bulk brands on the market today. The Medleys are distilling royalty in Daviess Cou... Read More »

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, the 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 spirit 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... Read More »

Butterscotch candy flavors, so strong I almost hear cellophane unwrapping, are echoed by some oak, caramel and vanilla. Smooth, not too much alcohol fire. Mellow, long finish with a touch of herbal and anise notes" (10/2010) K&L Notes: Coming from the great master distiller Parker Beam, the Elijah Craig bourbon has to be one of the best value Bourbons on the market!

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 »

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.

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)

2001 Knob Creek "Batch 2" 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 two is full of wood and oak, more tannic on the palate and drier on the finish.
