1996 Bowmore 22 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 12-17-2018
This is one of the best Bowmore bottlings that I have tasted in a long time. There are medium smoke aromas that expressive and almost pretty. In the mouth it is very complex with smoke, malt and savory flavors working together in harmony.

2007 Benrinnes 11 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 12-17-2018
Benrinnes makes solid and tasty single malts. This bottling continues this history. The nose is bright with honey and wax aromas. In the mouth it is lively with honey notes. It is mouth coating and there a hint of sweetness. There is a long sweet finish. A touch of water opens this selection up and makes it more pleasurable.

This cask aged very well. The positive aspects of long aging are apparent. It is lively and delicious. The nose has aromas of salt and smoke that work well together. In the mouth it is soft and concentrated with a creamy mouthfeel. The smoke and salt and a sense of place come through. It is enjoyable without water but a splash of water opens this selection up.

1995 Loch Lomond ("All Malt") 22 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 12-13-2018
This is a light and pretty single malt. In the nose there are subtle notes of floral and honey that work well in harmony. This continues in the mouth producing a very enjoyable whiskey. Although not exactly as light as some of the Japanese whiskeys, the Loch Lomond is on the light side and would be a perfect alternative to a Japanese whiskey for some one who wants an older whiskey. ( Most Japanese whiskeys in stock as I write this have no age statement).

The dark color of this selection provides a hint of what is to come. This Glenturret 12 is rich and round with deep flavors that show sherry barrel influence.

1995 Craigellachie 22 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 12-10-2018
This single malt bottling is a real value. Other single malts that offer this style of whiskey can easily cost much more. It is full bodied and rich with juicy and deep flavors. There is an influence from the sherry barrel aging but it does not dominate and helps give flavor and balance to this offering. There is a nice long finish and it opens up with a splash of water.

2006 Balmenach 11 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 12-10-2018
This is from a distillery that we don't get to see often as a single malt bottling. In many ways it is a very pretty whiskey. The nose is really nice with sweet honey and spice aromas. In the mouth the sweetness continues but is balanced out with a pleasant dry finish. With water it opens up and becomes more complex with honey nuances and a dry finish.

1994 Miltonduff 24 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 12-10-2018
We don't get to see a lot of Miltonduff which is ashamed. It offers a wonderful flavor prospective to the single malt selection at K&L. The nose has bright nice pear fruit like aromas that have wax and honey undertones. In the mouth the entry is sweet, followed with concentrated flavors that have dried fruit nuances. There is a long finish. I thought the Miltonduff 24 was enjoyable with and without an addition of water.

Review Date: 12-01-2018
Another hidden treasure from the world of single malts. The nose has honey and wax aromas but comes across clean and fresh. In the mouth the entry is sweet with pure and delicate flavors. With water, the nose really opens up with floral notes coming up and in the mouth dry flavors balanced out the flavor profile. There are no smoke aromas or flavors. A fantastic bargain for single malt lovers.

Elijah Craig K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #5181798 Bourbon 750ml (ships as a 1.5L)
Review Date: 11-29-2018
I think that Elijah Craig Bourbons are delicious, interesting and fun. It is always nice to see a single barrel selection because they have the positive elements of regular Elijah Craig but are a little different. This barrel has a beautiful sweet bourbon nose. In the mouth it is rich and full with a nice caramel notes. It is slightly more intense that the regular bottling (which is itself an excellent Bourbon).

2013 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 11-26-2018
Baricci is one of my favorite Brunello producers. They have a long and exceptional track record for producing high quality wine. The 2013 Baricci Brunello continues this tradition. I offers bright red fruits that are rounded out with earth and dusty flavors. It is drinking very well now and will go best with food.

Review Date: 11-16-2018
From what I have tasted so far,the single malt casks that the team from K&L purchased this year in Scotland are not only high quality and tasty but also offer a broad range of flavors and styles. The Hector Macbeth is a lighter single malt with a nose that is sweet with a subtle savory note. In the mouth it is soft and light and just rolls on the tongue with delicate malt and honey flavors. In addition, there is nice concentration to balance out this package out.

1987 L'Encantada 30 Year Old "Del Cassou #14" Bas-Armagnac (750ml)
Review Date: 11-08-2018
The single estate Armagnacs from L'Encantada are unique and interesting. Each one has its own individual personality . The 1987 Del Cassou has a nice nose of warm dried fruits. In the mouth the dark fruit flavors are pretty and round with a hearty undertone. There is a hint of spice and there is a long mouth coasting finish. With just a little water, maybe one or two drops , the Armagnac opens up and is more expressive. It is softer in the mouth with a creamy aspect to it.

2015 Sesta di Sopra Rosso di Montalcino
Review Date: 11-05-2018
I think that Sesta Di Sopra is one of the best producers of Rosso Di Montalcino and Brunello Di Montalcino that K&L offers. The wines are always delicious , serious and structured. The 2015 Rosso is no exception. There is a lot of wine in the bottle ,especially at this price. It is a medium to full bodied wine with layers of complex red fruits and earth, all balanced out.

Review Date: 09-07-2018
Single barrel cask strength grain whiskeys have been very popular at K&L. This selection of Invergordon is a good reason why. It is soft , mature and mellow.

Without water, in the mouth it is reserved again, but really opens up with some water becoming creamy with subtle soft spice. Interesting and easy the Invergordon is worth taking a look at.

Inverroche Amber Gin (750ml)
Review Date: 09-03-2018
When I first saw that K&L had a new gin I thought that there was not need to offer a new one because so many good ones are already in inventory. I was wrong, the Inverroche gins are all both tasty and interesting and add new taste experiences. The Amber is unique and delicious. The nose has subtle and delicate juniper notes that sit on top up a rich and almost burnt honey like aromas. In the the mouth it is full and creamy with a rich honey like and nut like flavors but it is not sweet. It will taste good alone on with tonic water.
