Dornoch Distillery Redacted (Thompson) Bros 6 Year Old "TB/BSW" Blended Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Top Pick!
The beauty of the Thompson Brothers is that they're willing to take risks. This offering is indeed a risky proposition for a bottler, the very reason the big guys were willing to let it go. On paper it reads like a very expensive blended scotch. But why add an age statement, when a 12-year-old Johnnie Walker is a fraction of the price? The age statement tells the entire story here and our friends at Dornoch care little for artificial labels and quality statements, all they care about is getting damn good whisky into your glass for an incredible price. So...

Dornoch Distillery Redacted (Thompson) Bros 8 Year Old "SRV5" Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Top Pick!
This is the Thompson Brothers foray into the world of blending. It's also proof that they've got some of the absolute best palates in the business. They seem to be getting access to stocks were others struggle and this little vatting of over 8 year old malts is one of the most intriguing and delicious malts on our shelves at any price point. SRV5 refers to Station Road Vat 5, the wooden vessel where this whisky is mingled before bottling. The Dornoch boys bottle in very small batches and the source material is of the highest quality. While the specifics ...

The plan to build a new distillery in this remote place wasn't an obvious one, but founder Anderson "Burr" Bakewell believed the unique feel of this special island could be captured, quite literally, in a bottle. The rare and elusive spirit of the Isle of Harris, which had historically drawn a special type of soul to it, was dwindling. The population slowly diminished, drawn away by modernity and the promise of prosperity on the mainland. Burr Bakewell gathered a group of like-minded individuals, who believed that the Isle still had much to give its pe...

Aberlour 11 Year Old "Hart Brothers Finest Collection" K&L Exclusive Cask Strength First Fill Sherry Butt Unchillfiltered Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) (Previously $100) (Previously $100)
Top Pick!
A rare independently bottled Aberlour, made that much more unusual by its maturation in a first fill sherry butt. The Aberlour distillery sits on the edge of its namesake, a gorgeous little hamlet right at the center of the Speyside region. The distillery seems tiny from the outside, but the malt here packs a punch. Founded in 1879 by James Fleming, it's become a pillar of the Chivas family in the last two decades since the French spirits giant Pernod Ricard purchased the distillery. Outfitted with 4 stills in the early 70s, it can produce nearly 4 milli...

No distillery in Scotland exhibits such a disparity between the quality and complexity of modern bottlings and the few independently bottled expressions. It's almost as if they've systematically sold off their most interesting barrels. Or maybe it's just that this whisky loves to be at full strength. That said, we haven't tasted a single cask of Bowmore in the modern era (post 1995) that wasn't exceptional. And while they're rare and almost always extremely expensive, we occasional get lucky and access one at an altogether reasonable price. There's somet...

This stupendous little Arran is a first for us, peated single barrel Arran! The young distillery was founded in 1995 on the sparsely populated island of Arran that was once a hot bed of illicit malt production. At one time there were upwards of 50 distillers operating in the area. Situated in the tiny town of Lochranza, the peated expression from the Island distiller has always been rare, but going forward stocks will be incredibly limited as they've moved production of peated malt to the second distillery on the island, Lagg. Owned by Isle of Arran dist...

Highland Park 12 Year Old + 50ml of Highland Park 18 Isle of Orkney Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750m+50ml)
Top Pick!
A great package - HP 12 with a 50ml rider of HP 18 all at the regular price of the 12 year! Highland Park, one of only two distilleries in the Orkney Isles, is the world's most northerly whisky distillery. It was founded in 1798 by Magnus Euson. Until it was licensed in 1825, its production was illicit and Euson was assisted in evading the excisemen by a kinsman who was a Kirk elder, and hid the contraband under the pulpit. By the 1880s, Highland Park had an established reputation and at one time both the King of Denmark and the Emperor of Russia declare...

93 points Whisky Advocate: "Fresh sea-blown peat on the nose, pine tar, sea salt, seaweed, dried seashells, and a tropical note of lime. Sweeter vanilla scents emerge, along with coconut, light nuttiness, and a hint of coffee. It’s peated but light and floral. The palate is honeyed, with vanilla, spice, dark chocolate, and lemon playing above beautifully integrated charcoal and peat. The mellow peat influence integrates beautifully into flavors that are dynamic, gorgeous, and memorable. *Editor's Choice* (DF, Winter 2021)" K&L Notes: The exceptional new...

Featuring all five malts from the famous whisky producing region, this is a blend that could only happen with Springbank driving the bus. An unmistakable Campbeltown whisky: Initial sweet, softer notes of fruit, honey and butterscotch give way to reveal more complexity, with traditional maritime and spice notes combining with the subtlest touch of peat smoke. Matured in a combination of ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks. Vatted and bottled at Springbank Distillery, Campbeltown.

This lovely Tormore will certainly be the last thing most people consider, but for the lucky ones who take the plunge, it will be undoubtedly be the sleeper of the whisky season. The gorgeoous distillery is such a welcome site after hours on the A95 working your up the River Spey. The striking copper roof and stone balconies makes it one of Scotland's most attractive. It is infact one of Scotland's youngest single malt distillery, the first new distillery built in the 20th century, designed by Alexander Cullen for Long John Ltd, founders of Ben Nevis dis...

A veil of smoke rises through the Scotch (but fades out fast), leaving behind a sweet nutty, vanilla finish. *Top 50 Spirits of 2011* " (12/2011) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "Highland Park 12 Year Old boasts individuality and complexity, thanks in part to the use of Orcadian peat in the distillery floor maltings and the employment of ex-sherry casks for maturation.

The mystical Isle Of Jura offers one of the most isolated regions in Scotland. The 150 square mile island has just a couple hundred residents but boasts a huge population of red deer. Built in 1810 by Archibald Campbell, it fell into disrepair until two of the islands old families rebuilt in the 1960s. The distillery was ultimately purchased by famed blenders Whyte & Mackay after a hostile takeover battle over Invergordon Distillers. Now the distillery produces a modest 2.5 million liters of pure alcohol per year, mostly destined for blends. Very few sin...

The Girvan Distillery is on one of the world's largest alcohol producing facilities in the world. On the southern coast of Ayrshire, just north of the eponymous town, this facility is enormous and has a capacity to produce nearly 115 million liters of pure alcohol per year. It's also the place where Hendrick's is made. The distillery was built in the 1960s during a dispute between owners William Grant & Sons and the largest conglomerate at the time DCL (the predecessor to modern day Diageo). Only 9 months between groundbreaking and first run make the con...

Lagavulin 8 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Look for a straw hue and unmistakably peaty, smoky scent. On the palate, fruity sweetness leads at first, quickly morphing into a billow of pungent peat smoke. Quite drying, and finishes fiery. Water tamps down the alcohol heat and brings more orchard fruit forward. Released in 2016 to honor Alfred Barnard, considered to be the first whiskey writer, as part of the 200th anniversary of Lagavulin. *Top 100 Spirits of 2017* (KN)" (12/2017) Whisky Advocate: "Light in color it may be, but this is no wimp.

Here's a fabulous follow up to the exceptionally good 25 year old unpeated Ardmore that we featured in last year's Whisky Season. This much for typical Ardmore was peated to the usual medium level of around 14 ppm. Of course, this is using highland peat sourced from terrestrial vegetation rather than the Islay peat which is composed of ocean vegetation. Filled into a high-quality 2nd fill ex-bourbon barrel in July of 2009, it was bottled at cask strength of 57% abv without the use of coloring or chillfiltration. The resulting whisky is extremely expressi...

The palate yields full-on hot peat, pipe tobacco, black coffee, licorice, and more chocolate. The finish is long and malty, with sweet smoke. Non-chill filtered.

It's no secret that we're big fans of Kilchoman distillery here at K&L. Our visit to the distillery on Islay really opened our eyes to the incredible job they're doing. Kilchoman is a tiny operation, producing on one still and malting whatever they can inside their humble barn. Due to their small scale, the cost of production is higher and prices for their whisky have not been inexpensive. Kilchoman's hands-on style and attention to detail make a world of difference. Every release has been better than the last, albeit extremely limited in supply. All tha...

Dalmore is one of those malts that will forever be controversial. They've made a name for themselves selling old sherry barrels at astronomical prices, but we rarely see the malt bottled as single barrel or at cask strength. When we do come across the odd independent bottling, it's almost always in second or third fill barrels destined otherwise for some big-name blend and while those can be lovely whiskies, they simply don't capture the essence of The Dalmore like you might expect. That is, of course, because the brand has become synonymous with sherry ...

Matured in a combination of re-charred red wine casks, Oloroso Sherry butts and Bourbon barrels, just a few drops of water were added post marrying to create the new core range offering from Kilchoman. It's bottled a gorgeous 114 proof without coloring or chillfiltraiton. The result is a colossal dram combining the natural peat smoke and citrus character of Kilchoman with dark fruits, rich spices and salted caramel sweetness from the high quality hand selected casks.
Price: $74.99

90 points Whisky Advocate: "Another that should need no introduction. The thing to look for in Talisker, as with all smoky whiskies, is sweetness that gives the requisite balance to the drying effect of smoke. Underneath Talisker’s smoke, which ain't as all-pervading as Lagavulin, is a sweet pear-like quality. When young there are notes of the land: heather, moor, sweet seaweed, and a finish that has a distinctive cracked black pepper hit. (DB, Summer 2012)" Wine Enthusiast: "The piquant nose offers immediate and stunning notes of sea salt, peat reek an...

It’s robust, with a deep amber hue and rich caramel scent. The flavor profile shows toffee, campfire smoke and a mouthwatering butterscotch note on the exhale. It almost reads like a peated bourbon.

God bless Andrew Symington and Iain Henderson for what they have helped to create at Scotland's smallest distillery. It is also the closest to the working 19th century farm distilleries that used to be found all over central Perthshire. Just imagine, huge external worm tubs that condense the vapors from the stills and the last open-wort cooler left in Scotland. Well worth a visit to see all this Victorian equipment in action! This 10 Year Old is fruity-sweet and smoky on the nose with a light marzipan taste that comes through smooth on the long finish. S...

Price: $69.99

90 points Whisky Advocate: "Light amber. The initial impression is one of bulk. There are heavy florals — think lilies and stewed white fruit, and just-overripe banana — but this is given a mysterious extra heft by an underpinning of a light meatiness, accompanied by a tiny lift of (good) sulfur. The palate is, unsurprisingly, thick and creamy with huge fruit that fills the mouth. A highly physical, old-style Speyside dram with classic distillery character. A statement whisky that is a must-try. (DB, Winter 2014)" K&L Notes: Finally, the new release fro...

93 points Whisky Advocate: "Ardbeg doles out occasional limited releases for their avid fans, but for nearly a decade the core range consisted of just three whiskies: 10 year old, Uigeadail, and Corryvreckan. The addition of An Oa, matured in a combination of virgin oak, Pedro Ximénez sherry, and bourbon barrels, and married in a French oak ‘gathering vat’ prior to bottling, marks a reason to celebrate. An Oa is a more approachable Ardbeg. It lacks some of the typical oiliness, but flavor and complexity abound with hot peat, black tea, and peppery cloves...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Silky and downright succulent, this Scotch is made with two types of oak casks—as the DoubleWood name suggests—but it’s really all about the influence of the ex-Sherry cask.

Whisky Advocate: "Diageo has introduced this new no age statement variant of Talisker single malt. The name reflects the distiller’s aspiration to enhance the maritime notes in this expression. Refill and rejuvenated casks have both contributed to its maturation. The nose is youthful but rounded, with brine, burning wood embers, vanilla, and honey. Sweet and spicy on the palate, with cranberries and black currants, while peat smoke is always present, plus black pepper. The finish lingers, with walnuts and fruity peat.
