Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 08-07-2013

For my palate I'm not sure this single malt can be bested around its price point. It carries heavy smoke without being overpowering - and the complexity on the finish begs to know why you would spend more on lesser scotches. A first love for many scotch drinkers, but don't be surprised if you keep coming back to this bottle after you explore the multitude of offerings on the market around this price-point.

Grand Mayan Ultra Aged Extra Añejo Tequila (750ml)
Review Date: 08-06-2013

This is a very bold spirit and a great example of an expertly crafted tequila in the relatively new "Extra Anejo" category. To qualify as "Extra Anejo" the tequila must spend a minimum of three years in barrel, but with this Grand Mayan the tequila spends 5 years in barrel. As a result, the influence of oak is immediately apparent on the nose, but there are also wonderful notes of caramel and pepper that really come alive on the palete as you slowly savor the long finish. Worth the splurge!
