Tequila Tapatio "Excelencia" Anejo Tequila (1L)

The oldest expression from Carlos Camarena's Tapatio brand is finally available stateside. Rich and butterscotchy and with hints of black pepper and citrus. Distilled exclusively from perfectly matured agave at the famous La Altena distillery in Arandas. When they tell you how this stuff was made it just boggles the mind. Distilled in 2000, this is the official SECOND batch of Excelencia. It was filled into the same barrels as the first directly after they were dumped and aged for 4 years before being transferred into glass containers. There it has mello... Read More »

St. George Green Chile Vodka (750ml)

Wine & Spirits: "Lance Winters of St. George Spirits helped reinvent American vodka when he co-created the Hangar One line and its exotic flavors like Buddha’s Hand and Kaffir Lime. Since selling the brand in 2010, he’s been vodka-free until this year. St. George’s new vodkas are less flamboyant and more workman-like, but no less artful. The All Purpose is smooth, robust, and easy going; California Citrus is fragrant with fruits and blossoms, yet remains restrained and modest, and Green Chile is destined to vivify a Bloody Mary or Margarita. All impress not with glitz, b ...Read More »

Dolin Véritable Génépy (Génépi) Des Alpes Liqueur (750ml)

The elusive Génépy (Génépi) from Dolin is a type of liqueur that has long been sought-after, but only recently become available in the US. Its character is derived from the various alpine shrubs of the genus Artemisia. More commonly known as wormwood, Genepi is an iconic alpine botanical associated with the kingdom of Savoy and the regions in France, Switzerland, and Italy that once made up that kingdom. It's been used for centuries to flavor liqueurs, digestifs and various tonics. The flavor profile falls somewhere in between modern absinthe and chartre... Read More »

2013 Fuenteseca Huerta Singular "El Maguey" Blanco Tequila (750ml)

What specifically makes Enrique's single-site expression so incredible? Let's start with the aromatics. From the minute you pop the cork and begin nosing the bottle, sweet smells of incense, roasted agave and tropical fruit inundate the senses. Absent entirely are the aromas of pepper, savory spice or vegetal notes that usually accompany the fruitier tones. It's as hedonistic as unadulterated tequila can smell, in my experience; but the spirit is not without spice on the whole. The first sip builds on those enticing aromas, but a huge dollop of baking sp... Read More »

Douglas Laing's Scallywag 13 Year Old Limited Edition Speyside Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $80) Top Pick!
Douglas Laing's Scallywag 13 Year Old Limited Edition Speyside Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $80)

The Scallywag blended malt has been well received by Scotch lovers and critics alike for its elegance and nuance. It's a blend of the great Speyside distilleries, like Macallan, Mortlach, Glenrothes and many more. Typically a small amount of sherried whisky is included in the blend with the majority coming from refill hogsheads and bourbon barrels. The Limited Edition Scallywag, however, has spent 13 long years entirely in Sherry butts from Jerez. It is indeed what some might term as Sherry forward, yet it wouldn't rank a true bomb thanks to its eminent ... Read More »

Somerset Cider Brandy Co. 10 Year Old Apple Brandy (750ml)

With a farm consisting of over 180 acres of apple orchards, Julian Temperley has been distilling brandy and making cider at Somerset since 1989 when he was granted the UK's first ever cider-distilling license. Cider production in the UK dates back to the Romans, but the West of England in particular has a number PGIs - protected geographical origins - where the orchards are treated like Burgundian vineyards, each with its own particular terroir. Much like a single malt distillery, Somerset uses hogsheads, sherry butts, and port pipes to age its brandies.... Read More »

Berry Bros & Rudd "No. 3" London Dry Gin (750ml)

It's versatile and well suited for making gin and tonics. It comes in a distinctive squared-off bottle with a metal key that's embedded in the dark green glass. (KN)" (4/2013) K&L Notes: Specially bottled for Berry Bros & Rudd in London, this gin was created to exemplify the classic London Dry style.

Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka (750ml)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This potato-based vodka from a small-scale Pennsylvania producer provides a versatile canvas for a wide array of drinks. With its lightly fruity aromas and flavors and a clean finish, it's also lovely neat. (KN)" (11/2012) K&L Notes: This is a small batch vodka made in Pennsylvania from locally grown potatoes by two guys using a copper still. The result is a softer, creamier style of vodka that is milder on the palate than most. This is vodka made by people who really care about quality and precision, and that's obvious at first sip. F.

ArteNOM "Seleccion 1414" Reposado Tequila (750ml)

Destileria El Ranchito has been owned by Feliciano Vivanco since the post-revolutionary period of 1919-1929. They hold 2,000 acres of estate grown agave and distill everything in traditional pot stills. Their fermentation process is what makes them very unique - their yeast and their climate creates a bready banana nut aroma and flavor. This is an incredibly understated reposado that absolutely with a unique and mild-mannered profile. Nutty, bready, with cinnamon bursts and spicy cloves on the palate. One of a kind, and very, very good.

Writer's Tears Pure Pot Still Irish Whiskey (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "Like the Writers Tears reviewed in this issue, this is from an independent company linked to renowned whiskey maker Bernard Walsh. It is described as of a style popular in James Joyce's Dublin (hence the name). Grain whiskey was a no-no at that time, so this uses no grain and is a mix of malt and pot still whiskeys. For its price and strength it is amazing — a big-hearted and full-flavored whiskey with an oily, apple-y pot still heart and cinnamon, nutmeg, and pepper spices.

On the palate, it skews sweeter, with rich caramel and hazelnut flavors and just enough bitterness and baking spice to keep things interesting." (4/2014) K&L Notes: Leave it to the Italians to make a bottle of "bitter" so beautiful and so tasty, too. This is an infusion, made from a secret recipe of aromatic herbs in alcohol, with the addition of a small amount of water and sugar.

(JH, Spring 2017)" Wine Enthusiast: "Made with a blend of straight Bourbons, this whiskey has a mild vanilla and resin scent. On the palate, flavors run to vanilla, cedar and citrus.

Amaro Angeleno (750ml)

Amaro Angeleno is LA's answer to the exploding Amaro scene. The Italian culture of drinking bitter liqueurs is centuries old. Since at least the early 1700s, distillers across Apennine peninsula have carefully guarded their secret recipes, usually traced back to some famous monastery, often promising good health, strong loins, or long life. Using both local and exotic ingredients they created something truly unique to that place. In that image, Amaro Angeleno was created to be a true product of terroir, inspired by those that came before, but distinct fr... Read More »

Fukano K&L Exclusive Single Cask #2827 Japanese Whisky (750ml)

When I first met Fukano-san over some very tasty Korean BBQ, her air of sophistication and elegant demeanor belied her ability to drink the entire crew under the table. While she was rather restrained that evening, but the other distillers regailed me with stories about her prowess. They had great respect for her not only because she was champion of the bar, but also because they knew her distillery is producing some of Kumamoto's finest spirit.

Paranubes Oaxacan Agricole Rum (1L)

Wine & Spirits: "From the misty Mazateca mountains of Oaxaca comes a rum so beautifully expressive of sugar cane that it might just make people forget about agave. Paranubes is made in a high-altitude “cloud forest” about six hours by car from Oaxaca City. Four varieties of cane are harvested in the forested hills, transported out by burro, then driven to the distillery. The fresh-pressed cane juice is fermented naturally in pine vats, then moved to a copper column-still fired by spent cane fiber. The rum is distilled to proof: nothing added or removed.

Smith & Cross Traditional Jamaica Rum Plummer & Wedderburn Pure Pot Still (750ml)

Scented with warm honey notes, the palate shows lots of brown sugar and spice, plus an enticingly untamed, funky finish (the fabled 'hogo'). Since it’s 'Navy Strength,' you might not want to sip it straight up—the producer wisely recommends exploring the profile first in a daiquiri—though it’s smooth and interesting enough if you want to try."

The main flavor components include Hyssop, Angelica, and Lemon Balm, but the other 24+ ingredients and the composition are a closely guarded trade secret.
