St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur (750ml)

96-100 points Wine Enthusiast: "The seductive bouquet offers wonderfully floral, fruity, guava- and melon-like fragrances of elderflower, becoming richly pear- and quince-like following aeration time. The palate entry is soft and firm; the midpalate is integrated, harmonious and exquisitely balanced between alcohol level, sweetness, acidity and floral impact. A perfect liqueur. *Classic/Highest Recommendation - Best Buy*" (4/2008) K&L Notes: Double Gold Medal at the 2007 and 2008 San Francisco World Spirits Competition!

Old Overholt Bottled In Bond Straight Rye Whiskey 750ml (Elsewhere $35)

Finally this great old Rye brand is back to its original strength. The famous Old Overholt name has been in existence since 1810. Founded by Henry Overholt, it was his son Abraham who built grand reputation of the Overholt name. Abraham's face adorns the bottle to this day. Rye whiskey reigned supreme in pre-prohibition America and Overholt was always considered one of the best. It was thanks to one of its shareholders and eventual owners, Secretary of the Treasury Andrew Mellon that the distillery was able to acquire a license to continue selling whiske... Read More »

Fernet Branca (750ml)

Wine Spectator: "Although many amari boast a secret formula comprising a multitude of ingredients-Fernet-Branca ($30) contains a total of 27, giving it a licorice, menthol and raisin character - certain flavors are well-trodden. Among them are anise, angelica, marjoram, cinnamon, cinchona, gentian, rosemary, saffron, fennel and cardamom, as well as mint and orange. (JB)" (2/2016) K&L Notes: Fernet Branca is an Italian amaro developed in 1845. The family's secret recipe still has never been disclosed, but what they can tell you is that it is a combination of 27 different herbs picked ... Read More »

A veil of smoke rises through the Scotch (but fades out fast), leaving behind a sweet nutty, vanilla finish." (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 nose is fragrant and floral, with hints of heather and some spice. Smooth and honeyed on the palate, with citrus fruits, malt, ...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 »

Michter's US #1 Small Batch Bourbon (750ml)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet has a dry, grainy aroma which is accented by peppery/spicy scents. The palate entry is surprisingly sweet and corny, considering how dry the aroma is; the midpalate point is deep, corny sweet, sap-like and a bit syrupy. Ends up well and balanced, with a backnote of dried red fruit (raisins, prunes). *Superb/Highly Recommended*" (12/2007) K&L Notes: The Michter's name has been synonymous with great whisky since the 1950s.

Plantation "Stiggin's Fancy" Pineapple Dark Rum (750ml)

Wine & Spirits: "A classic Dickensian dissembler, Reverend Stiggins is a Pickwick Papers character who sermonized about temperance while indulging in constant sips of pineapple rum. His name graces this new rum, a project that Maison Ferrand took on, sparked by a suggestion from spirits writer David Wondrich (the two have collaborated in recent years on a Curaçao).

(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.

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.

Jefferson's "Special Wheated Mashbill" Ocean Voyage #15 Aged at Sea Very Small Batch Straight Bourbon (750ml)

This limited edition Jefferson's Ocean Voyage is the first and only wheated bourbon to be aged at sea and visit five separate continents before being bottled. Jefferson's Bourbon has always been a producer focused on innovation, and the Ocean Voyage program is perhaps their most ambitious yet. They've had incredible success with the very unusual aging regime and this is easily the best we've tried yet.

Made with fine wines of the region and botanicals found in the alpine meadows above Chambéry, together they 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.

This 52.7% ABV stunner packs a healthy dollop of smoke along with tropical fruits and notes of citrus with plenty of length through the finish.

On palate, the entry is intensely grainy, silky and off-dry; the midpalate offers moderate bite plus chewy tastes of cracked wheat and cocoa bean. Aftertaste is dry, cleansing and medium-long."

Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur (750ml) (Previously $32)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet is lovely, balanced, properly astringent, ripe and juicy with scents of cherry stone and cherry juice. The palate entry is decadently sweet and textured with vibrant tastes of cherry compote and cherry preserves at midpalate. The finish is svelte, moderately syrupy and downright delicious. An outstanding liqueur: use it in an Aviation Cocktail." (12/2007)

Laphroaig 10 Year Old Original Cask Strength Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Laphroaig 10 Year Old Original Cask Strength Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Islay's Laphroaig is famed for its intensely peaty profile, and this single-malt Scotch delivers on that reputation. The amber spirit opens with a smoky aroma that's underpinned by vanilla and light floral notes. There's plenty of peat on the palate too, backed by olive brine, espresso and chocolate characteristics. (KN)" (12/2015) Whisky Advocate: "Pungent and medicinal in personality, with gobs of peat, tar, iodine, brine, and seaweed. These are all good things.in case you were wondering. A gentle vanilla sweetness tries to tame this savage beast, but it is no match. One ...Read More »

Suntory Toki Japanese Whisky (750ml)

Wine & Spirits: "*Year's Best Spirits 2016* While it may seem that our world is suddenly awash in Japanese single malts, the fact is that we’re already in a shortage. Last year, as demand continued to build for its limited stocks, Suntory took the age statement off its Hibiki, suggesting less of the precious older stocks were being used. This year, they’ve introduced Toki, a welcome addition to the portfolio. Whereas Hibiki is a burnished, complex sipper, Suntory’s latest release, Toki, is a light, bright, perky spirit with a surprising punch of flavor—apple, citrus and ...Read More »

Old Forester K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #3650 (7th Floor, Warehouse B) Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whisky (750ml)

The final cask from our selection last October at the old factory on the outskirts of Louisville. I've always wondered why Brown-Forman kept this special place all hidden away from the public since it's so close to one of the most important Bourbon capitals and there are no big public distilleries around. I suppose they want push us toward the polished Woodford facility outside Lexington because the Old Forester distillery is anything but polished. The sense of history and authenticity is second to none in the great Bluegrass state. They're also making s... Read More »

Chateau de Pellehaut Reserve Tenareze Armagnac (750ml)

On a beautifully situated property overlooking the town of Montréal-du-Gers, lies the Château de Pellehaut. Purchased by Gaston Béraut shortly after the Second World War, he has slowly developed one of the largest single properties in the region.

Both are intelligent and enthusiastic about their product, and between them have studied enology in Toulouse and apprenticed at Chateau de Tariquet in Eauze, Chateau Beychev... Read More »

Gin Mare Mediterranean Gin (750ml)

Gin Mare is a product we discovered in Scotland, of all places, years ago while searching for single malt. The retailer across the street from our hotel in Edinburgh was featuring the gin in a tasting that evening and we went over to check it out. Distilled in Spain with olives, rosemary, basil, and thyme it's a savory and truly Mediterranean experience. The herbs never overpower the palate, however, as the balance between them is quite delicate and refined. It's definitely an ideal choice for martinis, paired with olives, of course.
