1999 Finest Orkney (Highland Park) 18 Year Old "John Milroy" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
1999 Finest Orkney (Highland Park) 18 Year Old "John Milroy" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Highland Park distillery has always been a favorite of aficionados. It's risen to international prominence over the last several years thanks to a strong marketing push from their owners, the Edrington Group. Their move toward highlighting the Orkney's Viking history has brought about plethora of unique "limited" offerings and special editions. While many have been very good, the general theme is fewer age statements and higher prices. But, something has happened over couple of years. An unbelievable amount of "no name" Orkney casks have popped up at ...Read More »

1995 Blair Athol 23 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
1995 Blair Athol 23 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The exceptional Blair Athol Distillery sits just outside the picturesque town of Pitlochry at the base of the great Cairngorm Mountains. This small stone distillery has provided K&L with several of our most renowned single barrels, namely a few old refill casks from Signatory, which were dark refill sherry butts. This barrel showing up just a few years after those exquisite examples of this low key distillery further proves that sherry and Blair Athol play in perfect harmony. Famous in the U.K. as the home of well regarded Bell's Blend, it has no real no ...Read More »

2006 Croftengea 12 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

This oddball little malt is the first Croftengea (pronounced “Croft-N-Gay”) we’ve ever seen. The heavily peated malt from the reclusive Loch Lomand distillery is easily the best thing they make. A stupendous Highland peater that definitely has some of the more woodsy earthy smoke as well as hints of briny kippers and sea spray. A gorgeous pointed citrus quality and warming fresh bread note round out this powerful yet elegant peater and solidifies it as one of the most affordable and interesting malts we’ve ever sold this year. Similar bottles from other ...Read More »

2009 Talisker 8 Year Old "Old Particular - K&L Exclusive" Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2009 Talisker 8 Year Old "Old Particular - K&L Exclusive" Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Talisker has sort of this mythical quality in the pantheon of great malts. The majestic distillery on the banks of Loch Harport has long been a staple of any good Scotch selection thanks to its inclusion in the original "Classic Malt" line-up. While it was always one of the more available high quality malts on the market, Talisker was almost NEVER bottled by independents. Word was that Diageo prohibited the sale of casks to blenders under that name, but a special few bottlers, like Gordon & Macphail, had access to filling contracts which allowed them to ...Read More »

1984 Caol Ila 34 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

No distillery is more representative of the state of the Scotch industry than this bewitching peater on the northern coast of Islay. The excellent shoreside stills have dutifully cranked out unbelievably delicious peated whisky since 1846, but it wasn't until the malt floors were closed and the distillery began buying barley from the Port Ellen maltings that the current house style truly solidified. Caol Ila is known for their 12 Year Old in the US, but a huge majority of the spirit gets blended into the Johnnie Walker line. While the line has become sli ...Read More »

1995 Springbank 22 Year Old "Hunter Laing Old & Rare" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

There's no question that Springbank is my favorite distillery. There are so many reason's why I love Springbank, but the most important one is the most obvious - it tastes amazing. Now qualify that with the fact that the Springbank distillery is literally the only distillery making authentic single malt the way they would have 100 years ago. Modern Scotch distillers want you to believe that the changes they've made over the last 50 years are designed to make their distilleries better, which is 100% true if you own the distillery.

2010 Caol Ila 7 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Finished Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

We love it when our friends at Hunter Laing bring us young peaters to try. We've done several of these casks of Caol Ila in the past, but I don't think we've ever come across one as absolutely perfect as this little monster. Now some people will notice the description is quiet unusual, a Sherry Finished Butt. We usually expect these young peaters to get filled in to old hoggies and often stay there until we come across them 5-6 years later. Maybe they would have thrown is into an ex-sherry cask for a year or so to ace'd. Now we've moved into a whole new ...Read More »

1998 Tamdhu 20 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single First Fill Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The excellent Tamdhu distillery is one we've worked with previously, but the spirit itself doesn't make it to the open market too often. The distillery, near the village of Knockando, has wide onion-shaped stills. Couple that with classic wooden washbacks and you've got one of the most reliable malts on the market. Part of why we don't see more of this excellent spirit on the open market is that the blenders do value the quality and consistency so highly. Since Tamdhu's purchase by Ian Macleod (owners of the Chiefton's Brand) in 2011, their revamped dist ...Read More »

The exceptional Westland distillery is easily considered one of the United States top Single Malt distilleries. That's something that's hard to believe considering they only opened their doors in 2010 just 8 short years ago. But what Westland did right was commit. They committed to making the very best American Single Malt that they possibly could. They took what Scotland had perfected centuries earlier and instead of upending the tradition like so many craft distillers, they improved and adapted it to make this uniquely Scottish whisky distinctly Pacifi ...Read More »

1995 Loch Lomond ("All Malt") 22 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)

We have two amazing rarities from the reclusive Loch Lomond distillery this year. A unique facility, Loch Lomond makes every type of whisky they need for their blends in house. This means they operate a huge number of stills, multiple column stills and multiple pot stills. They make whisky in damn near every combination from heavily peated single malts to peat free malt and multiple varieties of grain whisky. This 22 year old is technically a single grain, but as grain whisky can be made from any grain, this so happens to be made from malted barley. Thin ...Read More »

1997 Hector Macbeth (Glenfiddich) 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

There's just no way to describe the feeling of coming across a splendid old cask of Wardhead (trade name for teaspooned Glenfiddich) like this one. You'd expect with the incredible value that these casks offer we'd see more of this type of whisky on the market, but I think suppliers are scared to work with something labelled as a blended malt whisky even when they know it's actually only blended on paper. This magical cask bottled as "Hector Macbeth" was actually distilled at the famous Glenfiddich distillery in Spring of 1997. It was filled into a used ...Read More »

1994 Miltonduff 24 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

The strikingly underappreciated Miltonduff distillery is unique in so many ways. Built on the site of an old mill for the Pluscarden Abbey, the distillery's old stone buildings hide one of Speyside's most delicious malts. Originally a Priory founded by King Alexander II in 1230, the area became renowned for illicit distillation. Originally licensed in 1824, the name, Milton, was taken from a still that operated on the property. The Duff family owned the lands surrounding the abbey, hence the name Miltonduff.

2006 Isle of Jura 12 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Isle of Jura is one of those incredible malts that we almost never see in the wild. Partly that's because they just don't make that much whisky. But it does seem that the owners, Whyte & Mackay, don't let go of the stuff very often. Isle of Jura has its following, but the little distillery on the sparsely populated island to the north of Islay isn't a household name by any means. The island's 200 inhabitants are vastly outnumbered by a massive population of red deer, who keep the islands vegetation from growing beyond the lowest grasses. The infertil ...Read More »

1996 Tobermory 22 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

There is only one distillery on the Isle of Mull and while it has a history dating back to the late 1700s, for much of that history, the distillery has been closed. Fortunately for us, in the 1990s the distillery was opened again after its most recent 11 year closure, and has gone back to producing classic island malts. With its small production of less than 1 million liters per year the distillery makes two very different malts today. Tobermory is the namesake malt of the distillery and is generally, although confusingly, not always unpeated. Ledaig is ...Read More »

Garnheath was the grain side of a short-lived but very large malt and grain whisky production complex in Airdrie and only operated for 22 years. Opened in 1964, Garnheath was one of the most efficient and promising distilleries in the Lowlands. It was situated in the old Moffat paper mill and produced the grain for Scotch Inver House Rare Blended Whisky. Unfortunately for lovers of fine grain whisky, Garnheath closed its doors to production in 1986 deep in a hole of debt.

Talisker 10 Year Old Isle of Skye Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

90 points Whisky Advocate: "Another that should need no introduction. 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.

While we take every opportunity we get to buy a blue chip distillery cask at reasonable prices, it's the unsung heroes that I believe make our Scottish single cask program truly compelling. Benrinnes is just such a distillery. One of the many workhorses in Diageo's stable, this Speysider is prized for its massive contribution to the final texture and profile of blends.

1996 Auchroisk 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Let's get the hardest part out of the way - It's pronounced "Ah-thrusk." This non-peated nutty and spicy malt is the result of hot and fast whisky making. A quick mash of the malt, a short fermentation period, and a rapid boil in the wash still leave this whisky heavy and rich. A style that makes it a cult favorite for drinkers and blender's alike. Located just south of the Burn of Mulben and east of the River Spey, Auchroisk was originally built to supply J&B with malt for their famous blend.

The tumultuous ownership history of Fettercairn has been in part responsible for the lack of brand recognition.

Helios Distillery "Kura The Whisky" Rum Cask Finished Pure Malt Japanese Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Helios Distillery "Kura The Whisky" Rum Cask Finished Pure Malt Japanese Whisky (750ml)

The Helios Distillery in the city of Nago has become renowned for their exceptional Awamori, the local Okinawan specialty. This is a kind of aged Sochu that has been consumed on the island since the 15th century. While they made their name locally for selling Awamori, Helios was quietly distilling ultra high quality rum and malt whisky. Their flagship whisky, sold under the Kura brand, is one of the most unique and enticing Japanese whiskies we've ever come across. They begin with peat sourced from the mires of Hokkaido. The Japanese peat has a lot of th ...Read More »

1997 Macduff 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
1997 Macduff 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The lovely Macduff Distillery -sold locally under the Glen Deveron label- is one of those tragic cases of great malt lost behind the blends. The owners don't spend much time making a fuss of the little distillery, which was built in 1958. Not much of the whisky is sold as malt and mostly it's marketed in France. The distillery located in Banffshire was a crucial element in the popular William Lawson Blend, but recently the owners have revitalized the Glen Deveron brand with a posh new look and some expensive age stated offerings. Despite the great packag ...Read More »

1988 North British 30 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
1988 North British 30 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)

A co-op of sorts, the North British distillery was founded in Edinburgh in 1885 by a group of gentlemen looking to break into the grain whisky business. At the time there was a virtual monopoly on grain production controlled by a company called DCL. North British found great success and has grown its production over the years due to the tremendous quality and quantity of their primarily maize or wheat distillate. The knock on effects of this enormous production are incredibly inexpensive, yet quite well aged stocks of premium grain whisky on the blending ...Read More »

Nikka "Miyagikyo" Japanese Single Malt Whisky (750ml) Back In Stock!
Nikka "Miyagikyo" Japanese Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Nikka's Miyagikyo distillery is back on the market with a fantastic new offering that doesn't disclose the age, but has no problem disclosing serious flavor. The sherry integration of the whisky is utterly marvelous. It's clearly marked by classic notes of fudge, fruitcake, and toffee, but all three profiles are so harmonious and fluid that it's difficult to hold on to them for more than a second. Nikka's whiskies are always delicate and feminine in style, and this malt is no different. The beauty is what stuns you, rather than the power or the concentra ...Read More »

2010 Ben Nevis 7 Year Old "Signatory" 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2010 Ben Nevis 7 Year Old "Signatory" 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

We've had an incredible history with Signatory and their exceptional managing director Des McCagherty. He's been an incredible resource for questions about the industry and consistently offered us exceptional stocks from their vast warehouses of top tier malt. Signatory has done a great job in the last few years of building stocks despite the incredible limits imposed on independent bottlers by distillers who covet their stocks like never before and refuse to release them in bulk as was once the norm. In order to acquire stocks you either need to pay top ...Read More »

Kaiyo Mizunara Oak Japanese Whisky (750ml)

Kaiyo is a negotiant bottler started by a drinks group led by former Asahi employee Mr. Watanabe. He was able to purchase "teaspooned" malt whisky barrels from an unnamed Japanese whisky supplier via his connections in the industry ("teaspooning" is when a distiller adds a teaspoon of another whisky into the barrel before selling it, thus preventing the purchaser from claiming it as a single malt from that distillery). The whiskies are purchased as teaspooned new make (unaged distillates) and then put into Japanese Mizunara oak barrels from Ariake, consi ...Read More »

2008 Mortlach 10 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2008 Mortlach 10 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Mortlach distillery is something of an enigma. Founded in 1823, their famous 2.81 times distillation technique (touted as the reason for the meaty robust flavor) was developed at the turn of the century. The vast majority (circa 95%+) of production is destined for the Johnnie Walker Blenders, where it balances the sweet highland malts and smoky Islays perfectly. One of the few Diageo single malts we've yet to actually visit, the distillery has become an icon for those in the know. For others it's a mouthful - Mort LATCH? No no, Mort LOCK! But there's ...Read More »

1996 Linkwood 21 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

The exceptional Linkwood distillery is another one of the grand old Diageo malts that you wonder why they haven't bothered to make a big deal of. Until you dive deeper into how and why the distillery is so important for making them money on the globally viable blended whisky market. After one taste of this Linkwood it's immediately clear that this is one of the heart malts for the great Johnnie Walker Blends. It kind of reminds me of all the things I love about Johnnie Walker that aren't peaty. Johnnie Walker, in particularly the Johnnie Green, is actual ...Read More »

Mortlach 25 Year Old Gordon & Macphail Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $220)

The magnificent old distillery in Dufftown has garnered quite a following over the years, even without a flagship bottling. So much so that the owners have decided to finally release a distillery bottling. This is not that, which retails for nearly $1000-- it is in fact much more delicious! Old-school rugged Mortlach, from a mixture of refill Hoggies and sherry butts, using the old original distillery label that G&M owns from when they bottled for the previous owners. They're smart so they kept those old trademarks, and now we reap the benefits. A fabulo ...Read More »

Kavalan Concertmaster Taiwanese Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

90 points Whisky Advocate: "An effusive offering of dark fruits: cranberry, blueberry, and black currant. This is a beautiful marriage of the spirit and the port cask finishing, showing applesauce, aged oak, macaroons, and dry aromatic spices. Black currant holds sway on the tongue, yielding to caramel, ground ginger, a second burst of juicy blueberry, with a hot finish evoking strips of dried tropical fruit and flashes of ground pepper. Rewarding and flavorsome. (JM, Summer 2018)" K&L Notes: After so much time spent merely reading about the great singl ...Read More »

2008 Clynelish 10 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Goddamn I love Clynelish. I kind of just want to say the word over and over. Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! It makes even better if you say it with me. The distillery was built in 1967 on the same site as the original of the same name. Due to malt shortages on Islay, the first distillery was fired back up in 1969 and produced some heavily peated malt that's now legendary, but the new distillery developed its own character and continues to produce some of the very finest malt Scotland has to offer. There's something about this weird little place o ...Read More »

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* " (06/2006) 94 points Whisky Advocate: "An old classic, but how do the newest bottlings fare? Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture. Deep peat ...Read More »

Douglas Laing's Rock Oyster Sherry Limited Edition Island Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Here is the excellent Rock Oyster Blended Malt that we've loved so much with additional aging in high quality sherry butts from Jerez. The standard Rock Oyster takes our favorite Island malts, none of which cannot be named, from distilleries you know and love, blends them together thoughtfully and offers them at a very attractive price. That wonderful whisky highlights those special malts created Scotland's Island distilleries (think Jura, Islay, Skye, Arran and Orkney). Very little go together better than salty maritime malt and sherry, so our friends a ...Read More »

2010 Caol Ila 8 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

We didn't say no to a single Caol Ila cask this year. They're too good and too reasonably priced. With the demand for Islay peat as high as it has ever been, the quality of these casks combined with sharp pricing was an absolute no brainer. This Old Particular bottling is charged from a refill hogshead and as always, bottled with no coloring or chill filtration. The meaty quality that we see in this years Sovereign cask of Caol Ila is tamed here and while there is decidedly some richness of peat and decadent phenol components, this is really on the gentl ...Read More »

Macallan Classic Cut "2018 Limited Edition" Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

This limited edition Macallan harkens back to an older and much lauded regular release, The Macallan Cask Strength. Adopting the royal crimson colored label - a color made famous by its predecessor - is a warning of the impending intensity of this exceptional Highland Single malt whisky. The Macallan Classic Cut is aged exclusively in sherry seasoned oak from Jerez and bottled without the addition of any water prior to bottling. This preserves the extraordinary character of this most exalted of Highland malts. The higher proof adds texture and depth, hig ...Read More »
