Billecart-Salmon "Brut Reserve" Champagne
Review Date: 12-6-2013
I've found myself ordering this a lot lately while going out. The Billecart Reserve is an easy, approachable Champagne, with a hint of toast and green apple. When in doubt, a Champagne will go with almost any food at a restaurant (or at home). It can also transition from aperitif to a dinner drink, with just one bottle! Good to have chilled and ready to impress friends, family or your special date...

Ketel One Vodka 750ml
Review Date: 9-15-2013
Arguably one of the best tasting vodka in my humble opinion. Keep a bottle in the feezer and drink it neat. Or better, just make a staight-up martini, shaken or stirred! Yes, everynight is a martini night!!

Bank Note Blended Scotch Whisky 1L
Review Date: 12-30-2012
Fantastic flavor. Fantastic value! Nice vanilla and floral notes. This might be one of the best blended Scotch under twenty bucks I've tasted! Perfect on the rocks. I like it with a twist of lemon, to add a little zest!

Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Réserve Champagne
Review Date: 2-12-2011
This is an offer that you can't refuse: A bottle of Champagne for just twenty-five bucks! Yes for real, this is not a typo. The Blue Label is an easy-going, crowd-pleasing bubbly. If you want to break-out the Champagne at your next party, without breaking your budget, this one is for you! Or just follow my example: Drink Champagne for no reason at all..! Who needs a special occassion?

Old Weller Antique 107 proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
Review Date: 2-12-2011
The Old Weller is becoming my everyday favorite. Sure there are pricier and more complex tasting bourbons, but for under twenty bucks, this is one smooth and easy drinking goodness! For something that is 107 proof, you won't even taste the alcohol. No burning sensations in the back of your throat! Such elegance!

Antech "Brut Nature" Blanquette de Limoux
Review Date: 11-21-2010
"Most of the world credits the invention of sparkling wine to the Champagne region, and to Dom Perignon. The legend, and possible real story, is far more interesting. According to Limoux natives, it was really invented there when Blanquette was created in their backyard. Its existence is documented as far back as the 1500s. When the great dom passed through, he stole the idea, they allege." -Kelby Carr ...This Cremant de Limoux is clean, bright and unassuming. Great to drink as is, or to mix a champagne-cocktail drink! Perfect for the holidays...-GLai

Deligeroy Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé
Review Date: 8-28-2010
This is the ultimate party and wedding Cremant rose of the year. It's easy on the palate, fun to drink and a great value. Nicely balanced acidity with a hint of minerality. There was even a strawberry flavor dancing in the back of my tongue...What's not to like?

Marie Duffau Napoleon Bas Armagnac 750ml

I have been hooked to this Armagnac ever since working for K&L. Without going into details, the flavor is complex, spicy and nutty. A great nightcap on cool evenings! The Marie Duffau Napoleon is also the most affortable Armagnac in our line-up. A must try!
