1987 Strathclyde 30 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 02-11-2019
This bottling of Strathclyde has a lot to offer. In the nose it is light with hints of caramel that one would expect. In the mouth it starts out soft and pretty, but this is just a teaser, because it becomes more concentrated and sweet. A touch of water opens this whiskey up and showcases the juicy richness.

2015 Lilian Ladouys, St-Estèphe
Review Date: 02-11-2019
A recent customer favorite in past vintages, this delicious year should continue this history. The lush 2015 vintage shows its influence with nice deep red fruit flavors that are balanced with subtle earth notes and a crisp finish. Although there is nice fruit, this is not a fruit bomb but a tasty wine that has all of the elements in place. It will go great with hearty foods.

Each Maker's Mark Private Select Barrel is unique . This selection is rich and sweet with vanilla and spice undertones. It has mouth coating flavors but is not too heavy.It should be on the top of the list for anyone looking for a wheated Bourbon.

2010 Caol Ila 8 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 02-07-2019
When I think of Caol Ila distillery it is as a single malt that is a little more subtle and delicate than some of its neighbors on Islay. This Old Particular that was distilled in 2010 is a good example. With out water, the nose is a mixture of fruity malt aromas with a hint of smoke and the mouth is in the same direction.With a touch of water, this single malt it becomes better with the flavors and aromas opening up, becoming more complex and enjoyable. Although there are smoky influences they do not dominate this whiskey but play a secondary role.

2009 Talisker 8 Year Old "Old Particular - K&L Exclusive" Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 02-07-2019
From my experience young Talisker selections are really good. They are lively , expressive and delicious. This Old Particular that was distilled in 2009 is no exception. With out the addition of water the nose is smoke and sea and the mouth is sweet and round.It is the addition of water that makes this product shine. The smoke and sea aromas open up and become more pronounced. The flavors are more open to taste with sweet malt, salt and a kiss of smoke coming through.

Gift Box - Port Dundas 28 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 01-26-2019
This is a focused whiskey,light and on the dry side, with a pretty floral aspect. It is one of the most interesting and best grain whiskeys that I have tasted so far. It is complex and a little water opens it up and makes it more subtle and delicate. But I think that it was best without the addition of water.

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).
