Suntory "Hibiki Japanese Harmony" Japanese Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
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 »

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 »

1988 Port Dundas 28 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Closed by Diageo in 2009, Port Dundas was formerly a grain distillery that operated in North Glasgow, providing the base whiskies for White Horse and Johnnie Walker. Over the years we have bottled a number of wonderful old grain casks for reasonable prices, and today is no exception. This 28 year old beauty is a candyland of excitement. It has flashes of sweet stonefruit and strawberry preserve. The palate jumps from toasted, candied coconut to vanilla shortbread and then back to honey granola and cinnamon sugar toast. There is a glazed nutty finish and ... Read More »

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. But, 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 o... Read More »

Glendronach 12 Year Old Distillery Bottling Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aged in former American whiskey casks, then finished in barrels that previously held PX and oloroso sherries, this single malt balances sweetness, spice and oak. Caramel and vanilla aromas are echoed on the velvety palate, plus cocoa and espresso, finishing with clove, cinnamon and a hint of lemon peel. (KN)" (12/2017) Whisky Advocate: "Nicely sherried. Rich, with maple syrup, honey-drenched citrus, sultana, and a good dried oak spice finish for balance. Well done for a 12 year old, and definite competition for Macallan of the same age.

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. This is Aberlour at a crucial point in its growth: you’ve lost the maltiness of the 10 year old, but there’s none of the heavy toffee and licorice of a’Bunadh o ...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.

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’).

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.

Nikka Coffey Still Japanese Grain Whisky (750ml)

92 points Whisky Advocate: "Sweet, with subtle, crisp, nutty oak, then comes fudge, ripe banana, and peach. The overall effect is like eating vanilla ice cream with toffee fudge and hazelnut sprinkles. The structure is thick and physical, the palate sweet and quite fat, with light hints of raspberry, fruit salad. A jag of acidity freshens the delivery on the finish. With water there’s more toffee, and it becomes slightly more yielding, with less oak. For me the gold standard of grain.

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 »

Kilchoman 9 Year Old 100% Islay Barley K&L Exclusive Cask #549 Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

When Kilchoman opened in 2005 it was the first new distillery on Islay in 124 years. Their founder, Anthony Wills, had a special approach in mind for a new kind of distillery. He wanted to create something with purpose and intention. His dream was to engage with the entire process of whisky making. He bought a farm and opened a distillery, making whisky in the same way it was always made: grow your own barley, malt it yourself, make your own whisky, age and bottle it on site, and deliver a product that shows an incredible sense of place, quality, and the...

Invergordon is a grain distillery situated north of Inverness on the Cormarty Firth. They've specialized in production of grain whisky for blends, but like so many things in whisky, with a little time comes greatness. We've snagged this cask of 26 year old grain whisky to showcase just how complex single grain can be on its own.

The nose is all tinned peach, tropical fruit juice, and baked banana, with a surprising green celery note, coconut, and sherbet. The palate is silky, with some chocolate, biscuity oak, and orange blossom honey. Water brings those green notes forward to add freshness to the peach cobbler sweetness. The grain revolution builds.

Douglas Laing's Scallywag 13 Year Old Limited Edition Speyside Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $60) Top Pick!
Douglas Laing's Scallywag 13 Year Old Limited Edition Speyside Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $60)

The Scallywag blended malt has been well received by Scotch lovers and critics alike for its elegance and nuance. It's a blend of the great Speyside distilleries, like Macallan, Mortlach, Glenrothes and many more. Typically a small amount of sherried whisky is included in the blend with the majority coming from refill hogsheads and bourbon barrels. The Limited Edition Scallywag, however, has spent 13 long years entirely in Sherry butts from Jerez. It is indeed what some might term as Sherry forward, yet it wouldn't rank as a true bomb thanks to its emine... 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.

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.

There's just a hint of phenolic action on the finish with a lovely coating of sweet grains and soft vanilla. Well done!

1997 Bowmore 20 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
1997 Bowmore 20 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Another classic 20 year old Bowmore beauty from our friends at Old Particular has landed to make 2018 another banner year for our whisky import program. This 52.7% ABV stunner packs a healthy dollop of smoke along with tropical fruits and notes of citrus with plenty of length through the finish. The peat isn't nearly as pronounced in this expression as it was in the previous edition, so fans of Talisker or other mildly peated malts might want to take a look at this one. The finish is sweetly smoked with a coastal sea air element, notes of vanilla, and lo... Read More »

Balvenie 21 Year Old "Port Wood" Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A port cask finish gives this Scotch a copper penny hue. The aroma suggests baked apple, while the palate has a chewy, concentrated vanilla-oak profile, leading to walnut, leather and espresso. The rounded finish sings with sherry and spice. Adding water coaxes out baked apple sweetness and dials back the oak. (KN)" (12/2017) 91 points Whisky Advocate: "This is the ultimate PortWood expression from Balvenie and has been finished in 30 year old port pipes. A more vibrant and textured Travel Retail variant is non-chill filtered and bottled at 47.6%. Soft, red grape notes, vanilla, and ...Read More »

Balvenie 17 Year Old Doublewood Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This sherry cask-finished Scotch offers creamy vanilla and crème brûlée, plus a mouthwatering citrus astringency on the midpalate and baking spice finish. Adding water pulls it all together, blending together lemon cream, almond and a gently spiced exhale. (KN)" (12/2017) Whisky Advocate: "A limited edition bottling to commemorate the great David Stewart’s 50th year in the business and, as befits this quiet man, here’s a release that rewards just sitting and listening. This gives more of a nod to Cognac than Speyside; something to do with the dried apricot, orange blossom, ...Read More »

Glengoyne 15 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Aged in both hogshead and sherry casks, the Glengoyne 15 year old is currently one of the best deals in single malt whisky at K&L with its creamy, unctuous texture and malty, sweetly-spiced finish. The chewiness of the sherry cask-aged portion shows through and adds richness to what is a lovely stone fruit character in the whisky itself. For those who love Glenmorangie 10 year or Glenlivet 12, but would like additional weight with finesse, this is the perfect step up.

Glenmorangie 12 Year Old "Quinta Ruban" Extra Matured Range Port Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "While 'extra finished' for two years in ruby Port casks, the impact on the spirit is minimal, imparting a rose-gold hue and a shadow of red berry flavor. Though it lacks the 'wow factor' of the Nectar d’Or, it’s still quite good: Expect a warm, fruity scent with a hint of cedar and a smooth caramel-honey flavor with baking spices on the finish." (12/2011) Whisky Advocate: "Finished in port casks. Like the Nectar D’or above, this expression adds lushness, body, and a sweet complexity (but with darker fruit and spice than the Nectar D’or) while still allowing Glenmorangie’s c ...Read More »

Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Sherry Barrel Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Sherry Barrel Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

91 points Whisky Advocate: "One of the finest Balvenie 15 year olds that I’ve tasted. The flavors are clean, well defined, confident, and beautifully balanced. Full malty foundation (with some ripe barley thrown in). Soft, creamy vanilla, honeycomb, bright fruit (orange, nectarine, lemon peel, hints of pineapple), with emerging dried vanilla, coconut, oak resin, and subtle anise. Polished oak finish. It doesn’t have the depth that the classic older Balvenies have shown in the past, but what it does have, it has in spades. Quite splendid!"

Ardbeg "An Oa" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Ardbeg "An Oa" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

93 points Whisky Advocate: "Ardbeg doles out occasional limited releases for their avid fans, but for nearly a decade the core range consisted of just three whiskies: 10 year old, Uigeadail, and Corryvreckan. The addition of An Oa, matured in a combination of virgin oak, Pedro Ximénez sherry, and bourbon barrels, and married in a French oak ‘gathering vat’ prior to bottling, marks a reason to celebrate. An Oa is a more approachable Ardbeg. It lacks some of the typical oiliness, but flavor and complexity abound with hot peat, black tea, and peppery cloves. Die-hard Ardbeg fans shoul ...Read More »

Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "The new version, at a higher proof and not chill-filtered. That helped--especially on the palate--with greater texture and more well-defined flavors. But the flavors are essentially the same: nutty, toffee, light molasses, vanilla fudge, with delicate fruit (citrus, dark berries) and a hint of brine. Very comforting. Extra points for versatility--this whisky will accommodate many moods and situations. (JH, Spring 2011)" Wine Spectator: "A refreshing malt, notable for its transition from a slightly austere nose of olive oil, seaweed and a whiff of peat to a glamorous palate ...Read More »

Shinshu Mars Iwai Japanese Whisky (750ml)

The Mars distillery is very well regarded in Japan and is easily considered the "super third" after the famous Suntory and Nikka distilleries. They don't focus exclusively on traditional single malt and are prone to experiment. They only produce whisky in the winter months so production is very small. This one is produced on the traditional pot stills at Shinshu Mars which was hand crafted in the 1950s. It is an usual blend of 65% corn, 10% Rye, and 25% non peated malt. The fat wide stills produce a very weighty and complex spirit. Mars always delivers a... Read More »

Glenmorangie "Astar" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Glenmorangie "Astar" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

94 points Whisky Advocate: "Glenmorangie Astar returns after a five-year absence. Astar is matured in custom toasted casks made from slow-growing trees on north-facing slopes in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. The barrels harbor bourbon for four years before heading to Glenmorangie. That level of provenance doesn’t come cheap, which is why the original Astar was discontinued in 2012, just four years after its acclaimed appearance. The exquisite Glenmorangie aromas and flavors—floral, with rose hips and orange blossom—are dialed up to new levels of intensity, while the voluptuous a ...Read More »
