2016 Raul Perez La Vizcaína "La Poulosa" Bierzo
Review Date: 04-15-2019
This is an excellent red wine because it has a lot to offer. I tasted it when it had first been opened and after it has been open for a while. Both times if offered nice red fruit flavors that were enhanced with savory and subtle notes. The nose was bright and inviting with both tastings. The main difference with the extra air time was that this wine got a velvet mouth feel.This wine will go great with pork or similar dishes.

1997 Macduff 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 04-12-2019
This is the first time that I have had the chance to taste a single malt from this distillery. I am glad that I got to have this chance, because this is a very good single malt whisky. With one or two drops of water the nose opens up and is powerful and expressive, with aromas of wax, honey, and wood spice. In the mouth the honey, wax and spice notes continue with a creamy mouthfeel.

2017 Domaine Weinbach Pinot Blanc Réserve Alsace
Review Date: 04-12-2019
This is a very elegant and subtle Pinot Blanc. There are pretty honey and floral aromas. In the mouth there is a beautiful soft and round moth feel. It is dry, interesting and a joy to drink. It is great alone but will go well with lighter foods. I liked it and think that it lived up to the reputation for high quality that Domaine Weinbach has.

Review Date: 04-08-2019
This is medium bodied lovely blend from Chateau de L'Ou has nice dark fruit flavors that are easy and delicious, but dry and balanced. My first thought when I tried this wine was that this wine is elegant and complex. While it is a pleasure to drink alone, it will go well with lamb or pork dishes.

1998 Chateau de Vacquié 20 Year Old Unfiltered Haut-Armagnac (750ml)
Review Date: 03-29-2019
This quality Armagnac is pure and clean and a real drinking pleasure. The nose is expressive, sweet, floral and rich. In the mouth it is delicate but full bodied with round fruit flavors. It is mouth-coating and bigger and richer than the Vacquie 1991. I think that this should please any brandy drinker.

This should please any brandy lover.

1988 Fitte et Laterrade 30 Year Old "Domaine Le Chaou" Bas-Armagnac (750ml)
Review Date: 03-29-2019
This Armagnac is imported by Charles Neal which means that it is unique, interesting and of high quality. The nose is dark and earthy with a layer of floral and fruit.In the mouth it has a nice rich dark fruit aspect that accompanies earth and mineral notes. I added 2 to 3 drops of water and it really opened up making it softer, richer and the flavors more accessible. The two vintages of Laterrade we now have in stock are different from each other, with the 1988 being the most rich.

This Armagnac is imported by Charles Neal which means that it is unique, interesting and of high quality. The nose is interesting with dark earthy and mushroom aromas. In the mouth it is full bodied and rich with rustic earth and dark fruit flavors. I first tasted it without water but then added about 2 drops of water which opens this Armagnac up, expanding the flavor profile and adding a creamy element to the mouth feel.

Review Date: 03-29-2019
This single malt is 55.6% abv but is easy to drink out of the bottle. But it is still better with a little water because the water opens the Balbair up and gives it a creamy mouth feel.

This selection of Bruichladdich is lively and tasty. In the nose there are hints of beeswax and complex sweet aromas. In the mouth it is soft and creamy, rich and round.

I love the name of this wine and I respect the work that this winery does. This is a delicious wine that delivers on its own merits. It has a wonderful velvety mouth feel and lush red and dark fruit flavors. It is balanced, and not a jammy fruit bomb, it is dry and fruity.

Glenmorangie "Allta" Private Edition Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 03-14-2019
This is a delicious single malt that should appeal to many people. In the nose, there are honey and wax aromas.

This is a wonderful dry Riesling. It has nice, soft fruit, balanced with a hint of minerals and a clean finish. Pure and medium-bodied, it goes down very easy. It will go great foods like roasted chicken and pork but is very delicious alone.

This bottling of Strathclyde has a lot to offer. In the nose it is light with hints of caramel that one would expect.

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.

Review Date: 02-08-2019
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. Barrel 906 tasted much better after a touch of water, which opened it up and made it lively and delicious.

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.

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).

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.

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: 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.
