Blondies Strawberry Lemonade Ready to Drink Cocktail (750ml)

Blondies is a ready-to-drink cocktail created by Jenny McCarthy, originally intended for her own drinking purposes, but now a full-fledged brand available at K&L in California! Never a true fan of beer or wine, but an enthusiastic drinker noneth-less, Jenny had been honing her home-made recipe for years before finally getting behind the wheel and driving her own vision for the modern market. Her vodka-based Strawberry Lemonade is a 13% ABV libation with no added sugar, and no preservatives, only real fruit and Stevia for those who care about both the ing... Read More »

Hendrick's Scottish Gin (750ml) Top Pick!
Hendrick's Scottish Gin (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This gin has a fierce following, in part because of its quirky brand personality (see the Monty Python-esque website) and aggressive marketing among bartenders. But it lives up to the hype. Some might expect a more concentrated rosewater-cucumber profile, but it's relatively subtle, with just a hint of cucumber mingling with juniper in the aroma, and white pepper, citrus and floral notes on the lingering finish. (KN)" (4/2012) K&L Notes: This unique, handcrafted gin has been infused with cucumber and rose petals. Very aromatic with a smooth sweet flavor and very long... Read More »

Four Roses Yellow Label Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* This mellow Bourbon is scented with vanilla and a hint of stone fruit. On the palate it's light and creamy, with nuanced notes of vanilla, almond and pecan, plus a gentle baking-spice finish. Sip or mix. (KN)" (9/2016) Wine Spectator: "The nose is standard Bourbon: corn, vanilla, with notes of mint and oak dryness. On the palate, there's more corn, vanilla and a bit of cocoa; the mint is more pronounced. The finish shows off the oak. Simple, straightforward, unpretentious."

(KN)" (9/2016) Whisky Advocate: "A soft, delicate bourbon -- especially when compared to its single barrel siblings here. Subtle notes of candied fruit and creamy sweet notes (vanilla, coconut, light toffee, and caramel corn) are nicely interwoven. Some integrated, gently-dried spice dances throughout and lingers on the finish. An easy-to-embrace bourbon with nice balance.

Del Maguey "Vida" Mezcal (750ml) (Previously $39.00)

Wine Enthusiast: "This clear and light-bodied mezcal has a faintly smoky aroma and a mildly peppery flavor. A potent, alcoholic finish fades into black pepper. (KN)" (12/2010) K&L Notes: This entry level bottling called "Vida" allows for all of the purity and beauty that one extracts from Del Maguey's hand-crafted distillations at a more affordable price. The "Vida" is still produced 100% according to the 400 year old local tradition of small-batch distillation and using nothing but the agave heart and water in the mezcal.

Look for bold caramel and spice, accented with fresh pear and ginger, finishing long. *Best Buy* (KN)" (9/2016) Whisky Advocate: "Soft, elegant, and nicely rounded, with honeyed orchard fruit and gentle spice on a bed of vanilla and caramel. Very versatile; a pleasing, unchallenging bourbon to suit most moods and situations. I actually like it better than the new, older 10 year old expression (reviewed in this issue), because it is so beautifully balanced.

This Bourbon offers lots of fruit on the palate--orange, apricot, tropical fruit--that finish long, with caramel and a bracing burnt-orange peel note. (KN)" (9/2014) Wine Spectator: "The dry, spicy, almost austere nose has a promising note of corn, and it delivers on the palate: sweet corn, berries and apricot, a touch of leather and cinnamon, with a bright, spicy finish. A mix of pot-still and column-still whiskeys." (2/2012) K&L Notes: *Double Gold Medal* at the 2013 San Francisco World Sp... Read More »

Dolin Dry Vermouth (750ml)

Made to the same set of recipes since 1821, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry has long been the benchmark for fine French Vermouth. It is made with fine wines of the region and botanicals found in the Alpine meadows above Chambéry, which impart a fresh and elegant nose with a subtle and complex palate. Ideal as an aperitif or in cocktails. In the late 19th century, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry won medals in Paris, London, St. Louis and Philadelphia and in 1932 earned Chambéry France's only Appellation d'Origine for Vermouth.

Michter's US #1 Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Crazy-sweet aroma, full of caramel, vanilla and a slight floral touch. The bite comes first (and lingers awhile), followed by vanilla, caramel, coconut flavors. It mellows considerably with ice, and becomes quite likeable, drinkable and mild. (KN)" (11/2010) K&L Notes: The Michter's name has been synonymous with great whisky since the 1950s. That famous whisky is no longer distilled at the famous Schaefferstown Distillery in PA, but the legacy lives on.

The aromas are restrained, but on the palate look for mild agave sweetness backed by lemon zest, ginger and white pepper sparks, plus a candied lemon-peel note on the gentle exit. (KN)" (5/2014) K&L Notes: Very rarely does a product like this come to our attention without a sneer or a snicker. But when "The Cloons" writes his name on something, you better show it some respect.

Cocchi Aperitivo Americano (750ml)

This is the original Americano, a low-alcohol, wine-based aperitif from the Asti region of Piedmont intended to be consumed before eating to enliven the palate while whetting the appetite. It has been produced in Asti since 1891 and is still made according to the original recipe, which is essentially white wine aromatized with many herbs and spices. All the ingredients are natural, with no artificial additives or coloring of any kind. It is produced in limited quantities and matured for a year before being released for sale.

Cimarron Reposado Tequila (1L) (Elsewhere $32)

From the distillery of Enrique Fonseca, the man behind the legendary K&L Fuenteseca, comes this value-priced label of liter-sized tequila that seems almost too good to be true. I'm willing to bet we'll have a problem selling the Cimarron selections, rather than the ridiculous success we should experience, simply because people will wonder why it's so cheap? Don't let the price tag sway you, however -- this is clean, fresh, easy-drinking tequila made from 100% agave that is definitely up to Enrique's high standards.

Singani "63" Bolivian Muscat Brandy (750ml)

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. South America is generally rum country, but 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 exp... Read More »

Aberlour 12 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

It’s powerful, with a thick, buttery feel and a long finish of lip-smacking spice cake and sea brine notes. (KN)" (12/2015) Whisky Advocate: "Somehow this 12 year old—a mix of sherry and American oak—is overlooked by malt lovers heading straight to the mental world of a’Bunadh. This is Aberlour at a crucial point in its growth: you’ve lost the maltiness of the 10 year old, but there’s none of the heavy toffee and licorice of a’Bunadh o ...Read More »

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.

This needs dilution, so use it in punches as intended and you'll be fine. *Best Buy* (KN)" (12/2013) K&L Notes: 94 points, "Highly Recommended," from the 2012 Ultimate Spirit Challenge.

2005 Chateau de la Grangerie 11 Year Old K&L Exclusive Armagnac (750ml)

Chateau de la Grangerie is a property that was built in the 17th century right next to an old monastery. The church and the housing for its servants was actually built in the 11th and 12th centuries and since the Armagnac is aged inside that facility, it might be the only spirit at K&L matured on hallowed grounds. Like many Tenereze producers, Grangerie distills only ugni blanc for its brandies. However, the sandy and gravel-rich soils are much more like the terrain found in the Bas-Armagnac. They fill about ten barrels a year; two of which are used for ... Read More »

That they've held that distinction for two hundred years is nothing short of awe inspiring.

The chance to work with Michel Couvreur on a special K&L whisky project was something that David and I had been dreaming of for years. We had heard the stories. This crazy Belgian had moved to Burgundy in the '60s, carved out a wine cellar inside a mountain, only to fill it with Scottish single malt whisky instead of Pinot Noir. He set up camp in Beaune, ordered new-make spirit to be delivered by tanker, and drove down to Jerez himself, selecting his own sherry butts to insure only the finest quality casks for his contracted spirit.

Unabashedly juniper-driven, the riveting No. 3 gets its name from the historic home of Berry Bros at No. 3 St. James Street in London, where they've bee... Read More »

Springbank 10 Year Old Campbeltown Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Smells of dried figs, sultanas, lime marmalade, sea breeze, green olive, lemon grass, malted milk and unsweetened coconut. The taste profile asserts itself in the forms of light caramel, paraffin and almond paste; at midpalate the spirit becomes more evident as the off-dry, malty, moderately salty flavor warms the tongue and throat. Concludes gracefully and elegantly, with a mild rush of heat and smoke." (6/2006) Whisky Advocate: "Thick barley and viscous, with ever-present brine and berried fruit throughout. Underlying notes of waxy fruit (no doubt from some sherry cask ag ...Read More »

Auchentoshan "Bartender's Malt - Edition 1" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Auchentoshan named this whisky the "Bartender's Malt" because it was designed and blended by a team of twelve different bartenders from all over the world who helped to select the barrels. Here's the really compelling part: they used single malt whisky from the 1970s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, and current decade in the blend, from ex-Bourbon, ex-Sherry, ex-wine, and even German oak barrels! I've said it before and I'll say it again: innovative blends like this are what's going to drive the business moving forward, in my opinion, especially in a market where singl... Read More »

Kaiyo Mizunara Oak Japanese Whisky (750ml)

Kaiyo is a negotiant bottler started by a drinks group led by former Asahi employee Mr. Watanabe who was able to purchase "teaspooned" malt whisky barrels from an unnamed Japanese whisky supplier via his connections in the industry ("teaspooning" is when a distiller adds a teaspoon of another whisky into the barrel before selling it, thus preventing the purchaser from claiming it as a single malt from that distillery). The whiskies are purchased as teaspooned new make (unaged distillates) and then put into Japanese Mizunara oak barrels from Ariake, consi... Read More »

1997 Hector Macbeth 20 Year Old "K&L Exclusive - Sovereign" Single Barrel Cask Strength Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

In order to understand the secret contained inside this very special Sovereign bottle, you have to understand a bit about how the Scotch industry works and what teaspooning means. There’s a long history of barrel trading and brokering between blenders and distilleries in Scotland, and some producers are very protective of their name brand. As you’ve likely noticed, we’ve been able to secure single cask selections from top names like Bowmore, Caol Ila, and Highland Park over the years, and those distilleries allow us to use the name, but others take more ...

Basil Hayden's Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Complex and balanced, this go-to Bourbon features vanilla aromatics with a touch of fresh apple. On the palate, it's light at first, showing vanilla and honey, and winds into deeper, rounded notes of cocoa and hazelnut. Splash in ginger ale for a highball and sip all night long. *Best Buy* (KN)" (7/2015) Whisky Advocate: "Interesting that the label says “Artfully Aged,” yet there’s no actual age statement. Lively nose, good rye snap and spice, a bit of mint and oaky edge. Not hot, well-behaved on the tongue, and happily gives back everything taken on the nose. Sweet, spicy, ...Read More »
