Corner Creek 10 Year Old Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)
Top Pick!
The enigmatic Corner Creek brand was bottled for years at a famous little family owned distillery in Bardstown. Recently the brand moved production to the Kentucky Artisan Distillery in Crestwood production and relaunched with this new 10 year old expression. The source is a secret, but there's no question that Corner Creek has the connections to find some seriously delicious bourbon and this new expression is leaps and bounds ahead of the previous no-age-stated Corner Creek. They've selected their choicest stocks for this product and bottled them withou...

1995 L'Encantada 24 Year Old "Lous Pibous #146" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Elsewhere $250) (Elsewhere $250)
Top Pick!
The phenomenon that is Lous Pibous is unmatched in modern booze culture. Their rise to prominence in the eyes of the cognoscenti was so precipitous, it could never have been predicted. Truly, a modern legend. It was an overnight success. This tiny estate been anointed as one of the great Gascogne estates. The inherently limited nature of the stocks has created a stir. The golden age of brandy is here and Pibous might be its peak. It might have been lost completely had it not been for the great work of our partners at L'Encantada. We were very lucky to im...

1979 North British 40 Year Old "Old Particular" Single Refill Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
This year we were more picky than usual in our grain selections. Perhaps the cream of the crop is the 40 year old North British. Though this cask is a bit younger than the 58 year old official distillery bottling released last year, it is still definitely no spring chicken. As single grain whisky ages past the 20 year mark, it often takes on tropical fruit notes; as it progresses even further, rich cream and honey often layer on top. At 40 years old, the cask doesn't overwhelm the spirit here. This all comes together in a glorious mesh as a sweet and dec...

2003 Glen Scotia "Malts Festival 2019 Limited Edition" Rum Cask Finish Peated Campbeltown Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $100) (Elsewhere $100)
Top Pick!
93 points Whisky Advocate: "The nose has sweet smoke and more prominent aromas of banana, vanilla, guava, papaya, jasmine, hibiscus, and citrus oil, with some salinity and chalky minerality. The palate is consistent: intense tropical fruit—guava, mango, coconut—plus hazelnut, smoked almonds, milk chocolate, and salty kelp. It finishes with smoked nuts, toasted tobacco, chalky minerality, dry oak, and persistent fruitiness. Lots to unpack here, and it develops beautifully with water—take your time.

1995 Caperdonich 24 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Unchillfiltered Speyside Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Bottlings from the enigmatic Caperdonich Distillery are extremely rare. It was built in 1897 and named "Glen Grant #2," Caperdonich by J. & J. Grant in the town of Rothes. Only five short years later, the Pattison whisky crisis shuttered the gleaming new distillery. It lay dormant for 60 more years before Glenlivet rebuilt it and resumed production. The name Caperdonich, meaning "secret well," was adopted due to new regulations prohibiting multiple distilleries from sharing the same name. It was purchased again in 1977 by Seagrams, who sold it to Pernod ...

The vineyards of Ragnaud-Sabourin stretch far over the hills in Grand Champagne, 33 hectares of Ugni Blanc, with a bit of Folle Blanche, as far as the eye can see.

The story of Monkey 47 gin is romantic: in 1951, a British man named Montgomery Collins moved to Germany's Black Forest and opened a guesthouse named "Zum wilden Affen"--the wild monkey. Now considered a renowned gin drinker, Collins's taste for the spirit was unknown until renovation work at the country guesthouse led to the discovery of a weighty old wooden box containing a bottle and a letter. The dusty bottle had been labeled and decorated by hand, showing a sketch of a monkey and the words "Max the Monkey--Schwarzwald Dry Gin." The accompanying lett...

2005 Laphroaig 13 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Unchillfiltered Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The magical distillery on the south shore of Islay, like all south shore distillers, is quite unlike any other. But Laphroaig has a certain place in the hearts of the hardest core peat lovers. They're the last distiller down there to malt a portion of their barley on site. Their complex system of tiny stills create the most peculiar and enticing peated spirit in the world. The quality and consistency of their casks is second to none. But over the last decade, what was once a staple in the independent bottling repertoire has completely disappeared. Laphro...

1988 L'Encantada 30 Year Old "Domaine Le Frêche #17" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Elsewhere $200) (Elsewhere $200)
Top Pick!
The wonderful and mysterious "Domaine Le Frêche" is becoming, much like Encantada's other famous estate Lous Pibous, quite well regarded. Also like Lous Pibous, Le Frêche is not the name of the domaine itself, but a place holder used by the bottlers. Because of this secrecy there's much speculation regarding the source of the spirit. Unfortunately for those seeking truth there are easily 10+ excellent producers in the little village, so take a guess. The most famous is the incredible Boingniere, whose Armagnacs are extremely sought-after and expensive. I...

In recent history, Tamdhu has occupied a front and center seat in Edrington's blends such as The Famous Grouse and Cutty Sark. The distillery has been owned by Ian Macleod since Edrington divested in 2011 and they've revamped the entire core lineup. While their work has been exceptional on the distillery's core bottlings, it's very difficult to beat the enjoyability of well aged Tamdhu at cask strength offered by our single cask program. It's been a long time since anything the Edrington group has ever touched was 80 bucks and anywhere near 19 years old ...

Founded in 2014 by Ken Lewis and owned by one family, New Riff is led by a team of corporate refugees ranging from craft beer to politics and more. New Riff crafts a range of whiskeys: bourbon, rye, malted rye, a host of specialty recipes, and "Kentucky Wild Gin."

Bunnahabhain has been doing its thing since 1881 with just a short shutdown in the early 1980s. The massive distillery was built at a time of booming confidence in the Scotch industry and everything about it reflects that, from the enormous sprawling distillery to the massive stills. Historically destined for blends such as Cutty Sark and Famous Grouse, it's in the modern booming era of Scotch that Bunnahabhain has really come into its own as a single malt. Known today for its unpeated malt on an island famous for peated spirit, Bunna at 30 years old is ...

Just when you think you've tasted every type of booze known to man, you discover that there are yet more regionally specific spirits being distilled in places you've never considered. Take Bolivia, for example. In Bolivia they make a pisco-like spirit called Singani, distilled from Muscat of Alexandria grapes grown high in the Andes mountains. Seeing that Muscat is an aromatic varietal, known for its fruity and floral character, the Singani spirit distilled from it takes on many of the perfumes found in the expressive grape. The result is a clean and vib...

1974 Invergordon 45 Year Old "Old Particular" Single Refill Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The single malt explosion of the last decade has created more interest in Scotch whisky than ever before. Along with the resulting throngs of devoted malt lovers, an unheralded category has begun to make inroads with connoisseurs and collectors alike. Single Grain whisky is the other side of Scotch, the hidden side. Normally relegated, the unmentionable filler for the great blends, when it was first created in the mid-19th century, it was extremely controversial. But the very thing that makes grain whisky so profitable for blenders also makes it so extre...

Glen Moray is a distillery that has historically been a victim of its own success. Long owened by Glenmorangie's ownership group, Macdonald & Muir, Glen Moray served as a malt for the budget conscious consumer. Despite making excellent whisky and being widly consumed, it never really recovered from this association. The good news is that today $100 bucks for anything with a big age statement is firmly in the "budget" category, and this malt over delivers in a big way. It's supremely soft and supple. Fruity, round, heavy with vanilla, honey and pretty flo...

New Riff Bottled-In-Bond Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml)

92 points Whisky Advocate: "New Riff’s first whiskey releases were all bottled in bond from the start—a bold move for a brand new distillery. This rye proves it was the right decision. Complex and compelling, it shows maturity while retaining liveliness and verve. Grassy and herbal on the nose, it also has orange, cedar, sassafras, rose petals, and syrupy blackberries. The medium-weight palate balances clove, cedar oil, orange, berries, bubble gum, and cinnamon, which melt into an herbaceous, nutty, chocolate-rich finish. The patient drinker is rewarded,...

Sazerac's other distillery, the Barton facility in Bardstown is not nearly as well-known as the Buffalo Trace side of things. Ken Pierce, not Harlan Wheatley, is distilling over in Bardstown, making a high-rye bourbon called 1792 Ridgemont, a softer, smoother, yet more peppery version of bourbon than what we're used to from BT. Lots of tasty oak integration and a wonderful mix of spice and richness make this another feather in the cap of the United States' top bourbon producer. The cask strength edition is a powerhouse of a bourbon with bold rye spice an...

Made from the same set of recipes since 1821, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry has long been the benchmark for fine French Vermouth. Botanicals found in the Alpine meadows above Chambéry are added to a base wine made from regional grapes to aromatize it, imparting fresh, herbal qualities to the nose and complex flavors to palate. It is then fortified. The Rouge is ideal as an aperitif or in for a wide range of uses in cocktails.

Wine & Spirits: "Here’s an unusual one: a single malt whiskey made in the Sandhills of Nebraska.
