Old Forester "1920 Prohibition Style" Kentucky Bourbon Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
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. (FM, Winter 2016)" K&L Notes: As one of the few distilleries allowed to remain ... Read More »

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

Balances with a bit of branchwater, but needs a light touch.

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.

(KN)" (9/2014) Wine Spectator: "The dry, spicy, almost austere nose has a promising note of corn, and it delivers on the palate: sweet corn, berries and apricot, a touch of leather and cinnamon, with a bright, spicy finish.

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.

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.

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

2008 Evan Williams Single Barrel Bourbon (750ml)

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 2008 vintage here.

1792 Small Batch Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* The first couple of sniffings detect attractive, dry scents of leather and black pepper; aeration encourages sweeter, woodier aromas to emerge. The palate entry is sap- and pine-like and moderately sweet; at midpalate a flash of cocoa appears, then recedes for additions of sweet oak, vanilla, palm oil and sap. Finishes lean, moderately sweet, grainy/corny and very appealing. Best Buy." (6/2006) K&L Notes: Sazerac's other distillery, the Barton facility in Bardstown, is not nearly as well-known as the Buffalo Trace side of things. Ken Pierce, not Harlan Wh... Read More »

Knob Creek Single Barrel "Reserve" Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

94 points Whisky Advocate: "This new single barrel expression of Knob Creek tastes very similar to the original 'small batch' Knob Creek (when brought down to the same alcohol level). If anything, it’s slightly drier, more elegant, not as heavy on the palate, and more sophisticated — but I am reaching here. The similarity is a good thing, because I really enjoy the original expression. Keeping in mind that no two barrels are exactly alike, your decision to purchase the single barrel might just come down to whether you want to pay a little more for a higher strength version, and whe ...Read More »

Tuthilltown Hudson Baby Bourbon (375ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "Sweet caramel corn on the lips, silky on the swallow." (1/2015) K&L Notes: Tuthilltown Spirits is located along New York Hudson's River and has the distinction of being the first New York distillery to (legally) make bourbon since Prohibition. The Hudson Baby Bourbon is a single-grain bourbon made entirely from New York corn, and it is aged in small American oak barrels that impart vanilla caramel notes and soften the spirit's edges. Mild, this is a great introduction to bourbon, but enjoyable for even the most discerning connoisseur.

Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select Barrel Proof Tennessee Whiskey (750ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "At first, this whiskey is easy to underestimate, since the amber color and mild toffee aroma give little away. But one sip, and it is clear this whiskey means business: Deep vanilla cookie and cigar tobacco flavors unfold to a big, burnt-caramel finish, which washes over the palate like a rolling wave. Manhattan-worthy. (KM)" (3/2011) K&L Notes: Finally, cask strength Jack. Not sure how long this will last, but at least we've got some serious juice coming out of Lynchburg. Critics, even the ones who discount the brand outright, are widely in agreement that this is so... Read More »

Corti Brothers "Good Honest" Whiskey (750ml) (Elsewhere $75)

Finished in Mission del Sol barrels and distilled entirely in 2012, the Corti Brother's newest expression has a mash bill of 70% corn, 25% rye, and 5% malt barley. This release is similar to the first offering from Amador Distillery and the venerated Sacramento retailer, Corti Brothers. This young bourbon spent a good deal of its life in that fabulously oxidized classic Californian sweet wine and the palate shows it. More balanced and well rounded than the older "Exquisite Whiskey" that was released last year. The Mission del Sol barrels originally held ... Read More »
