Cutty Sark "Prohibition Edition" Blended Scotch Whisky (750ml)

90 points Whisky Advocate: "The Real McCoy! It's said that during Prohibition Bill McCoy serviced the better speakeasies with proper Cutty Sark; hence the name. If this is a recreation of what they might have been drinking back then, you can see why they kept fighting over it. This is another bold, earthy, smoky blend with oily, industrial notes. There's crabapple, smoke, bitter lemon, grapefruit, and even black currant. It would seem blended whisky is where it's at right now! Great stuff. (DR, Summer 2013)" 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Intended as a salute to Prohibition-era smuggler Captain William McCoy, thi ...Read More »

Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $100) Top Pick!
Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $100)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Soy sauce, olive brine, peat, honey, oloroso Sherry, brewer’s yeast, bread dough, barley malt and cigar smoke in the bouquet. The flavor that magically includes the innate intense peatiness of Islay malts and the masterly employment of oak barrels phase defines “classy Islay.” Concludes sweetly, without sacrificing the tangy, astringent peatiness that is inherent. Gorgeous. *Best Buy*" (6/2006) 94 points Whisky Advocate: "An old classic, but how do the newest bottlings fare? Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture. Deep peat, thick smoke, iodine, brine, charcoal, seaweed, tea (Earl Grey, ...Read More »

Ardbeg "Uigeadail" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $73)

95 points Whisky Advocate: "The marriage works exceptionally well, with the younger whiskies providing the classic Ardbeg intensity many of us have come to expect, while the older whiskies contribute depth, maturity, and complexity. And bottling the whisky at cask-strength without chill-filtration ensures that none of the flavors are stripped out. This is an incredibly complex Islay whisky, with its bonfire smoke, brine, and peppered olive notes balanced by a taming sweetness of vanilla, marshmallow, and toffee. Interwoven notes of candied fruit and sugared almonds round out the pa ...Read More »

2005 Tullibardine "The Murray" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

A classic Tullibardine whisky, "The Murray" is named for Sir William Murray, Scotland's second Marquess of Tullibardine. Murray was part of the Jacobite army and fought in the battle of Sherrifmuir on the hills above the distillery. The Murray is the first cask strength whisky made by the distillery this century! 12 years old and bottled at full cask strength, this first-fill bourbon dram is a dream. It's full of intense tropical aromas, sweet vanilla, malt cookies, and has an incredibly lengthy finish thanks to the 56.3% proof. A limited release of 14,0... Read More »

Balvenie "Doublewood" 12 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Silky and downright succulent, this Scotch is made with two types of oak casks—as the DoubleWood name suggests—but it’s really all about the influence of the ex-Sherry cask. Aromas suggest golden raisins and dried apricots. The silky palate starts out moderately smoky, but glides into a richer, honeyed, nutty profile that finishes with cocoa and clove accents.

Laphroaig 10 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Laphroaig 10 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

This 10 year old malt epitomizes the taste of Islay; rich, smoky and peaty. Known as "the most richly flavored of all Scotch whiskies," Laphroaig is widely considered one of the finest distilleries in the world. That they've held that distinction for two hundred years is nothing short of awe inspiring. Laphroaig continues to maintain an on-site malting operation, which accounts for a small but significant chunk of the barley that they distill. Fermentation is conducted precisely in steel before distillation using a complex seven still system. The spirit ... Read More »

Bruichladdich "Botanist" Gin (750ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "Although the “Botanist” name might suggest a floral gin, instead the flavor profile veers toward herbs and spices. There’s a subtle, herbal scent, with anise flavors up front, backed by coriander seed and cassia bark on the spicy finish. Made by Bruichladdich Distillery, which is renowned for its Scotch, on a pot-still named Ugly Betty. Sold in an attractive, square-shouldered, gift-worthy bottle.

It’s powerful, with a thick, buttery feel and a long finish of lip-smacking spice cake and sea brine notes. (KN)" (12/2015) Whisky Advocate: "Somehow this 12 year old—a mix of sherry and American oak—is overlooked by malt lovers heading straight to the mental world of a’Bunadh.

It’s robust, with a deep amber hue and rich caramel scent. The flavor profile shows toffee, campfire smoke and a mouthwatering butterscotch note on the exhale. It almost reads like a peated Bourbon.

The thing to look for in Talisker, as with all smoky whiskies, is sweetness that gives the requisite balance to the drying effect of smoke. Underneath Talisker’s smoke, which ain't as all-pervading as Lagavulin, is a sweet pear-like quality. When young there are notes of the land: heather, moor, sweet seaweed, and a finish that has a distinctive cracked black pepper hit.

The flavors dry to a spicy midpalate before exiting on a long, concentrated maple-like note. (KN)" (12/2015) Whisky Advocate: "A much-beloved malt in the U.S. Some say it’s because it is easy to pronounce (though having said that, remember it’s ‘OH-bin’ and not ‘O’Bahn’).

Then the Laphroaig signature peat smoke, seaweed, tar, and medicinal notes emerge. Bottling at 48% and without chill-filtering keeps the whisky from being dulled down. A whisky that is very dynamic. Nicely done.

2003 Balvenie 14 Year "Peat Week" Vintage Single Malt Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!

Another cracking smoky whisky from the newly beloved Peat Week series by The Balvenie. For one week every year, The Balvenie Distillery closes normal operations and distills exclusively heavily peated malt. The peat itself is different from the stuff you'd find on Islay because the organic composition differs from region to region. The terrestrial peats of the highland composed of shrubs, heather, and other highland greenery have a lower phenol levels than the bogs of Islay. Balance is made up by guaiacol and non-phenolic smoke elements. The resulting wh... Read More »

Aberlour A'Bunadh "Batch #62" Cask Strength Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Wine Spectator: "Brave the cask-strength heat and be rewarded by a malt that's welcoming and complex. Sherry and cherry dominate at first, but a cereal-granola-honey quality and a licorice note flirt from behind the curtain. The essential candy element returns on the finish." (2/2011) K&L Notes: Pronounced "a-boon-arh," which means "the origin" in Gaelic. Made the way whisky was produced in the 1800s, A'bunadh from Aberlour is not chilled-filtered and is bottled at cask strength. Slowly matured in rare Oloroso sherry butts, this malt is full of rich, smooth, complex flavors.

Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old Highland Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "Along with Cragganmore, this is one of the underrated members of the original Classic Six. Quite why has always slightly baffled me. OK, it isn't smoky, but the nose has a deep, soft, honeyed sweetness: think caramelized fruits, hints of thick cream, and a light touch of fennel and sharp citrus. Thick in the center and very gentle, it's that chunkiness in the middle that is the secret to its beauty. (DB, Summer 2012)" Wine Enthusiast: "Opening aroma is assertive, dry, with peppery scents of barley husk, grainy oil and cracked wheat wafer; seven more minutes bring out a mild ...Read More »

1996 Ledaig 19 year old "Sherry Cask Finish" Isle Of Mull Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Another well aged Sherry finished peated from the Tobermory distillery. These guys have really turned up the quality in the last several years, taking good aged stock and filling them into ultra high-end Sherry barrels to give them that extra little something. For those wanting that peat and Sherry combo there's very little out there in the same range, particularly if you don't want the sappy sweetness added by PX (I'm thinking Lagavulin DE). Yet the Ledaig has a ton of the same dark nuttiness that you'd expect from a fine Oloroso cask and just the right... Read More »

Glenmorangie "Nectar D’Òr" 12 Year Old Extra Matured Range Sauternes Cask Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This 12-year-old single malt was finished in casks that previously held Sauternes, the golden sweet wine of Bordeaux. Smooth and elegant, look for a honey hue and notes of vanilla and lemon cream on the palate, finishing with baking spice and a puff of smoke. Adding water unleashes more creamy vanilla and citrus. (KN)" (12/2017) Whisky Advocate: "Finished (extra-matured, as they are now saying) in Sauternes casks. This expression replaces the Madeira wood finish. Beautiful sweet notes of honeycomb, sultana, apple pie, and white chocolate balanced by peach, coconut, and pine ...Read More »

Lagavulin 8 Year Old Limited Edition Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "Light in color it may be, but this is no wimp. The nose goes straight to the shore with mineral and salt, but it’s also sweet, which allows it to be fresh, lively, yet balanced. The palate delivers some menthol, bay laurel, more brininess, a hint of malt, and Parma violet. Everything remains very breezy, with peat smoke being blown from a kiln into salt-laden air. I prefer it to the 12 year old and the price is fantastic. (Summer 2016, Dave Broom)" K&L Notes: The 200th anniversary bottling of Lagavulin is finally here! A limited edition eight year old single malt whi... Read More »

Macallan "Double Cask" 12 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

90 points Whisky Advocate: "Two oaks are better than one in this single malt, which marries whiskies matured in sherry-seasoned casks of both American and European oak. The sherry imparts aromas of raisins, figs, hazelnuts, blanched almonds, candied orange peel, and leather. A backbone of vanilla sweetness on the palate supports layers of ginger and white pepper, dark chocolate, leather, raisins, toasted hazelnuts, and orange oil. This Macallan joins the core line between the Sherry Oak and Fine Oak ranges. Warming and rich without being syrupy, it doubles up on accessibility with ...Read More »

2008 Tobermory 8 Year Old "John Milroy - K&L Exclusive" Single Refill Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

This crazy little Tobermory is exactly what I love about the strange little distillery on the Isle of Mull. It was filled into a used sherry butt in 2008. This distillery sometimes gets a bad rap, in particular because the independently bottled stuff is usually filled into 4th and 5th fill cask. The slightly feinty style of the malt really needs some higher quality oak to be softened enough to release its complexity, but once it does it can be an absolute treat. There's no question that Tobermory has the potential to provide incredible depth and enjoymen... Read More »

Macallan 18 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Speyside single malt is matured in Sherry oak casks from Jerez, Spain, for a minimum of 18 years. The amber spirit has a big, warm caramel flavor, finishing with a touch of sweet honey, bitter chocolate and espresso on the lingering finish. Viscous, creamy mouthfeel. (KN)" (12/2011) 91 points Whisky Advocate: "Macallan's 18 year old expression is, for me, the highlight of its regular sherried range. Deep amber in color. The nose is rich and heavily fruited: fruit cake, mulberry, a little moist gingerbread, the bloody depths of molasses. On the palate, dried fruits — more figgy t ...Read More »

Laphroaig "Triple Wood" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

94 points Whisky Advocate: "Laphroaig’s owners are intent on ensuring a big peaty engine for any new release, but this is a monster by anyone’s standards. It’s essentially Quarter Cask finished in oloroso sherry casks, so in addition to the intense charcoal smoke attack there are rich fruity notes; blackcurrant and berries. It’s an evening barbecue whisky. Grill that fish until it’s blackened and crispy, drizzle on lemon, and as the smoke rears up in protest, sip this. Big, moody, broody, fruity, and rich: what’s not to love? (JH, Fall 2010)" K&L Notes: A limited release that was supposedly for... Read More »

Glengoyne 21 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $169)

The Glengoyne 21 is one of the biggest deals in the world of Scotch, from a splendid distillery in the lower Highlands. Aged in Oloroso sherry casks, this 21-year production from a high-quality distillery could easily go for twice this price. Expect rich dark fruit and nutty sherry notes. Without a doubt one of the finest values in Scotch available today.

Ardmore Legacy Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

In 2010, the Whisky Advocate called Ardmore the "rising star in the world of single malt," and went on to explain: "Until four years ago it was little known in its own right, its main purpose being as a key malt in Teacher’s. Then Ardmore Traditional was released, and it’s been winning over drinkers ever since." (09/2010) Today, Ardmore is one of the largest distilleries in Scotland, and continues to earn accolades for its fine offerings.

Glenlivet 12 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $37)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Vibrant gold with orange highlights, fruity scent of apples and pears plus a whiff of vanilla. Soft, velvety feel. This is a pleasant and drinkable Scotch, but the flavors are relatively muted. It mixes well with other flavors, making it a good contender for cocktails. Good value. (KN)" (12/2011) Whisky Advocate: "As with the ‘Fiddich (reviewed in this issue), here’s a malt where an improved wood policy has brought a dram to life and added complexity. The Glenlivet has always been about lightness, but the trick is to have sufficient solid base to allow its flower to blossom ...Read More »

1995 Glen Keith 21 Year Old "John Milroy - K&L Exclusive" Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

This wonderful cask of Glen Keith was selected by our friend Doug McIvor for its exceptional balance and character. The distillery in Keith has been rare in modern times due to its closure from 2000 until 2013. While it served as a partner to neighboring Strathisla as one of the component malts in the Chivas Blend, it was also the site of much experimentation and some unusual production techniques. There they developed unique yeast strains and alternative ways of peating whisky--namely the use of extremely peaty water to ferment the mash. Keith has long ... Read More »
