Suntory Hakushu 12 Year Old Japanese Peated Single Malt Whisky (limit 12) (750ml) Back In Stock!
Suntory Hakushu 12 Year Old Japanese Peated Single Malt Whisky (limit 12) (750ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This golden, silky single malt mingles vanilla and honey with fresh apple and pear aromas. These notes are echoed on the palate alongside a wave of peat smoke. Add a splash of water to offset the modest but persistent alcohol heat and further coax out the fruity-smoky flavors. (KN)" (12/2015) Whisky Advocate: "Although only two years older, this expression of Hakushu — the first to be launched in the U.S. — shows a fleshier side to the distillery’s wares. While it has retained the freshness of the 10 year old, it shows more pineapple and grapefruit on the nose, with a littl ...Read More »

Suntory "Hibiki Japanese Harmony" Japanese Whisky (750ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The newest blended whisky offering from Hibiki is burnished gold in the glass and has a bold aroma that mixes vanilla, fresh pear and a hint of smoke. The smokiness comes forward at the first sip, wrapping around a core of oak and vanilla custard and finishing long, with a mouthwatering bitter chocolate note. *Best of 2016* (KN)" (3/2016) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "Poised and complex, with typically lifted fruitiness: strawberry ice cream, pineapple, peach, balanced by delicate oak, bamboo shoot-like delicacy, then lemon. The palate is more rounded than that very forward nose, with ...Read More »

Ardbeg "Grooves" Limited Edition Islay Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

91 points Whisky Advocate: "The 2018 Ardbeg Day limited-edition bottling includes a proportion of spirit matured in red wine casks which have been heavily charred, leaving deep grooves in the surface of the oak. Fragrant soft smoke, warm leather, and salty red berries on the nose; background charcuterie. The palate offers red berry fruits, vanilla, dense peat smoke, brine, and asphalt. Beach bonfires and black pepper in the sweet finish.

The Singleton of Glendullan 15 Year Old Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Previously $55)

The lovely and easy drinking Singleton of Glendullan is always a favorite with the staff. It's easy drinking and well aged and with a price like this it won't stick around for very long. The Singleton brand is a bit of an enigma. Owners Diageo use malt from different distilleries in different markets under the Singleton name. Other markets see Singleton of Dufftown or Glen Ord and typically it's a pretty highend brand. So when we're able to offer it at this exceptional price we don't hold back. Grab as much as you can now because price reductions like t... Read More »

Aperol Aperitivo Liqueur (750ml)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Among the canon of Italian spirits, Aperol and the Aperol Spritz cocktail are classics, available at a growing range of America's best bars. The lurid red hue is recognizable from across the room. It's light on every count—in terms of alcohol content, sweetness level and texture. The gentle sweet-bitter profile goes down easy—especially when lightened with bubbles. (KN)" (4/2014) K&L Notes: Aperol's unique flavor and color is achieved through a subtle blend of bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb and an array of herbs and roots--using a secret recipe that has been unchang...

(7/2013) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "Light bronze color. Thick, mature aromas, with notes of subtle spice (vanilla, mint), toffee, light molasses and leather.

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, Lapsang Souchong), and the aromas of a summer barbeque. Vanilla and light caramel soften the intensity, while subtle citrus fruit teases. Powerful, yet polished and seamless.

It’s high, bitter and faintly floral-fruity in scent. Americanos and Negronis wouldn’t be the same without this jewel-like spirit. *Top 50 Spirits of 2011* (KN)" (12/2011) K&L Notes: The classic bar staple is a must have for anyone looking to build the ideal at-home bar.

Jefferson's "Special Wheated Mashbill" Ocean Voyage #15 Aged at Sea Very Small Batch Straight Bourbon (750ml)

This limited edition Jefferson's Ocean Voyage is the first and only wheated bourbon to be aged at sea and visit five separate continents before being bottled. Jefferson's Bourbon has always been a producer focused on innovation, and the Ocean Voyage program is perhaps their most ambitious yet. They've had incredible success with the very unusual aging regime and this is easily the best we've tried yet. Something about the soft sweetness of the wheated mashbill and the tangy saline of the ocean influence work absolute wonders. This is one of the most exci... Read More »

Their focus at Ketel One is quality, tradition and personal commitment to their customers.

Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Gin (1L) Top Pick!
Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Gin (1L)

The story of Monkey 47 gin is romantic: in 1951, a British man named Montgomery Collins moved to Germany's Black Forest and opened a guesthouse named "Zum wilden Affen"--the wild monkey. Now considered a renowned gin drinker, Collins's taste for the spirit was unknown until renovation work at the country guesthouse led to the discovery of a weighty old wooden box containing a bottle and a letter. The dusty bottle had been labeled and decorated by hand, showing a sketch of a monkey and the words "Max the Monkey--Schwarzwald Dry Gin." The accompanying lett... Read More »

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

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) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "One of the few remaining age-stated bourbons. Henry McKenna’s color is beautiful.

And bottling the whisky at cask-strength without chill-filtration ensures that none of the flavors are stripped out.

Ends up well and balanced, with a backnote of dried red fruit (raisins, prunes). *Superb/Highly Recommended*" (12/2007) K&L Notes: The Michter's name has been synonymous with great whisky since the 1950s. While the famous whiskey is no longer distilled at the famous Schaefferstown Distillery in Pennsylvania, the legacy lives on. Current ow... Read More »

Oban 14 Year Old West Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Oban 14 Year Old West Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

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’). I’d prefer to think its popularity is because there is something about the fresh cleanliness of the nose, its orange oils, chocolate, and zesty-zingy and yes, occasionally salty spiciness that is instantly appealing. (DB, Summer 2012)" Wine Enthusiast: "The early aroma is a combination of malt, wood and sea breeze; the later bouquet is a deliciously harmonious, even creamy marriage of maritime atmosphere and malted barley. Palate ...Read More »

Smooth Ambler "Old Scout" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #10108 American Whiskey (750ml)

Our first single barrel of the 107 proof American Whiskey iteration of Old Scout has arrived. Spicy and bold on the palate with rich vanilla on the finish, the extra proof and concentration of the individual cask stands out immensely from the standard Smooth Ambler edition, making this barrel a lovely little anomaly. Fans of youthful, yet robust higher proof Bourbons will definitely want to try a bottle.

Grey Goose Vodka (750ml) Top Pick!
Grey Goose Vodka (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Crystal-clear and pure. Nose is unabashedly smoky in the first nosings; aeration smoothes it out as fetching aromas of mint, harvested grain and grain husk assert themselves. On palate, the entry is intensely grainy, silky and off-dry; the midpalate offers moderate bite plus chewy tastes of cracked wheat and cocoa bean. Aftertaste is dry, cleansing and medium-long." (7/2006) K&L Notes: The famed French vodka for your favorite cocktail. Made in a copper pot still from a fine blend of French wheat and water from the Gensac Springs in Cognac.

Michter's US #1 Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Crazy-sweet aroma, full of caramel, vanilla and a slight floral touch. The bite comes first (and lingers awhile), followed by vanilla, caramel, coconut flavors. It mellows considerably with ice, and becomes quite likeable, drinkable and mild. (KN)" (11/2010) K&L Notes: The Michter's name has been synonymous with great whisky since the 1950s. That famous whisky is no longer distilled at the famous Schaefferstown Distillery in PA, but the legacy lives on. Current owners Chatham Imports bottles under this historic name and have been doing so since the 1990s! One of the ... Read More »

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. (KN)" (4/2012) K&L Notes: What happens when you take one of the great single malt distillers of all time, put him in a room with an old Scottish pot still and have him make... Read More »

Basil Hayden's Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Complex and balanced, this go-to Bourbon features vanilla aromatics with a touch of fresh apple. On the palate, it's light at first, showing vanilla and honey, and winds into deeper, rounded notes of cocoa and hazelnut. Splash in ginger ale for a highball and sip all night long. *Best Buy* (KN)" (7/2015) Whisky Advocate: "Interesting that the label says “Artfully Aged,” yet there’s no actual age statement. Lively nose, good rye snap and spice, a bit of mint and oaky edge. Not hot, well-behaved on the tongue, and happily gives back everything taken on the nose. Sweet, spicy, ...Read More »

Fernet Branca (750ml)

Wine Spectator: "Although many amari boast a secret formula comprising a multitude of ingredients-Fernet-Branca ($30) contains a total of 27, giving it a licorice, menthol and raisin character - certain flavors are well-trodden. Among them are anise, angelica, marjoram, cinnamon, cinchona, gentian, rosemary, saffron, fennel and cardamom, as well as mint and orange. (JB)" (2/2016) K&L Notes: Fernet Branca is an Italian amaro developed in 1845.

Four Roses "Single Barrel" 100 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* This complex whiskey has a bold caramel aroma and, at 100 proof, an unsurprising hit of alcohol heat. Balanced with a bit of water, the caramel palate shows zesty orange peel, espresso, maple and clove. The long finish is bracing and drying, with leather and oak, plus flickers of citrus and spice. (KN)" (9/2016) 92 points Whisky Advocate: "A fuller-bodied, sweeter encounter than Barrel #55-6F reviewed below. More rounded and even-keeled throughout, too! Chewy toffee, rummy molasses, and nougat, with underlying notes of dark, berried fruit, accentuating spice, and supple l ...Read More »
