Uitvlugt 20 Year Old Faultline K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Guyana Rum 750ml
Review Date: 07-04-2015
This is one of the most interesting and delicious rums that I have tasted in a long time. At first there are aromas of brown sugar followed by floral and herbal notes that are both pleasurable and inviting. In the mouth, the subtle brown sugar, floral and herbal theme continues, offering a very complex rum. This is a rum to think about.

Don't overlook the great roses from Greece. The Zafeirakis is a delicate style rose. There are beautiful inviting aromas. The body is light and dry with just enough red fruit like flavors to make this wine a perfect pleasure to drink. Great alone, it will go well with lighter foods.

2013 Gerovassiliou Estate White Epanomi

A world class white wine. The Gerovassiliou Epanomi is a blend of two indigenous to Greece grape varitials, Assyrtiko and Malagousia. The Epanomi offers beautiful almost floral aromas, that are textured with soft stone fruit flavors and balanced out with clean crisp acidity. Should be great with fish or fowl.

2009 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 05-09-2015
A serious and complex Brunello that is very enjoyable. Classic cherry like flavors rounded out with hints of earth and minerals made this wine so enticing. This wine is always a favorite in staff tastings. It will go well with hearty foods and is drinkable now. An hour or two of decanting will help open this wine up.

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.

Domaine Jean Bourdy "Galant des Abbesses" Liqueur 750ml
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.
