2009 Poggiarellino Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 04-20-2015
This is one of my favorite direct imports from Italy. At this price this is a chance to taste a wonderful Brunello and see how special they are. Bright dry cherry flavors with a hint of earth round out this wine. It is drinkable now but would be best if decanted an hour or two before consuming. The 2009 Poggiarellino Brunello will be a great pairing with meat or pasta.

Westland Sherry Wood Single Malt Whisky 750ml

A tasty West Coast single malt that is easy to drink and enjoy. The sherry aging adds some richness, making this version of Westland single malt a juicy and round spirit. A delectable delight to have straight or with some ice.

1995 Craigellachie 18 Year Old Hepburn's Choice K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml
Review Date: 04-06-2015
For fans of sherry-aged single malts the Craigellachie 18 is an absolute bargain. It is mouth-filling, with rich and round flavors. In my tasting notes I wrote "Wow." For fans of Macallan 18 who want to branch out and try a similar yet different whisky.

Domaine Jean Bourdy "Galant des Abbesses" Liqueur 750ml (1 bottle limit)
Review Date: 04-06-2015
This delightful liqueur has pretty and inviting aromas with hints of fruits and spice. In the mouth there is a subtle marriage of fruit flavors with integrated spice. It is not too heavy and nor too sweet. There is a long and clean finish. The Galant Des Abbesses opens up and changes with some time in the glass. The producer suggests having it with chocolate and I think that it would be great with anything that has whipped cream.

Review Date: 04-01-2015
An inviting noise that is expressive, floral and malty. In the mouth this Miltonduff is pure, round and refreshing. Michael Jackson, the great whiskey writer, used to describe single malts sometimes as restorative, and I think that that is what this single malt is.

Faultline K&L Exclusive St. Lucia Rum 750ml
Review Date: 03-16-2015
This rum has a lot to offer. It shows that rum is not one dimensional, and how individual and different rums can be. The Faultline St. Lucia has floral and herbal aromas that are very interesting. In the mouth it is spicy, with a nice vanilla finish. Most important is that this rum tastes very good.

2010 Terre da Vino "La Luna e I Falò" Barbera d'Asti Superiore
Review Date: 02-06-2015
I am surprised that this wine is only $14.99, because it offers so much. There are nice, deep, dark red fruit flavors and a full body that is balanced and perfect to pair with red meats or other hearty dishes. The Terre Da Vino is ready to drink now. While it drinks well just after it is opened, decanting will open it up further.

2012 Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico
Review Date: 02-06-2015
The Rocca Di Montegrossi Chianti has wonderful expressive fruit and a nice juicy body. It has bright cherry-like flavors and is balanced with enough acid to make the wine enjoyable and great with food. Not Old World Chianti of thirty years ago, but not a New World, fruit-focused wine, either.

2011 Zind Humbrecht Pinot Blanc
Review Date: 01-27-2015
This is a wonderful wine that if it had to be described in one word, I would use "balanced." There is a nice balance between the soft and inviting aromatics, the texture and fruit flavors in the mouth, and the lively, crisp finish. The Zind Humbrecht Pinot Blanc is a dry wine that will go well alone or with food.
