Eagle Rare 10 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "Ten years of barrel time has created a concentrated caramel scent and palate spiked with sarsaparilla and allspice, finishing spicy and quite hot, with a fleeting orange peel note. Balances with a bit of branchwater, but needs a light touch. *Best Buy* (KN)" (7/2015) K&L Notes: Buffalo Trace was named Distiller of the Year by Whisky Magazine in 2005 and 2007 and by Wine Enthusiast in 2006.

Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $25)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A good workhorse for all manner of cocktails, this bright amber Bourbon has a butterscotch aroma and oaky, relatively dry flavors that elongate into a rich caramel finish. *Best Buy* (KN)" (7/2013) Whisky Advocate: "Effervescent, tingly mouthfeel, but the flavor begins after the initial warmth, with hints of caramel apple, pumpkin pie, apricot, and a slight hint of caramel popcorn. Then it’s pumice, apricot, and marmalade, followed by salt water taffy, cinnamon, and a big burst of nutmeg. A long finish offers a hint of peach pie.

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.

St George Breaking & Entering American Whiskey (750ml) New!
St George Breaking & Entering American Whiskey (750ml)

Our dear friends at St George have offended again! B&E always joked that St George had "stolen" the whisky from distillers back east for their in house blend. The B&E had been a staple of the whisky shelf here until the last drops were emptied in 2014-15. Since then we've always wondered if that special distillery in Alameda would ever score a haul like that again. They've finally done, but this time it's an inside job. They could have simply flipped those casks into bottle and made plenty of fine Bourbon or Rye whiskey under the old label. The distille... Read More »

Whisky Advocate: "The original Maker’s Mark, tried and true, and the same since the 1950s. The nose is consistent with a flare on the floral, toffee and caramel, roasted almonds, and loads of vanilla. Just when you think you’ve tasted this a million times, it offers candied fruit and pie crust with the final touches of praline and a hint of pecan shell.

Named for the 'angel’s share,' the portion that evaporates from the barrel during the aging process, this golden amber spirit is finished in Port barrels, which explains those juicy red-fruit notes that slide into the long finish.

Maker's Mark "Warrior's Edition" Bourbon (750ml)

Maker’s Mark is probably the best known wheater around. If you’re not familiar with that term, a wheater is a bourbon that’s made with wheat instead of rye in the mash bill which gives it a sweeter taste than most traditional bourbons that use rye (along with corn and malt). Legend has it that when the original owner of Maker’s Mark, T. William “Bill” Samuels Sr., was trying to come up with the mash bill for his bourbon he had 7 options he was considering. Since bourbon takes a minimum of 2 years to age he opted for making a loaf of bread with each of hi... Read More »

The scotch adds hearty, meaty flavors to the dry, spicy, and rich bourbon and rye. This is a robust and beefy whiskey, with smoke reminiscent of Southern barbecue. Earlier releases of this ambitious whiskey didn’t quite hit the mark. Now, it’s right on target. *Top 20 Whiskies of ...Read More »

Woodinville Straight 100% Rye Whiskey (750ml )

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a 100% rye whiskey made with Washington state grain. Look for a tawny hue and distinctly fruity scent layered with a wash of vanilla. The bracing, lean palate shows plenty of vanilla and caramel up front plus a hint of espresso, sparked with fiery cayenne and hot cinnamon on the drying fade. A splash of water coaxes out a pleasing nuttiness and tones down the spicy heat. (KN)" (11/2018) K&L Notes: Woodinville is a Washington State whiskey company established in 2010. They heard the message loud and clear about what people wanted in craft whiskey: no short cut... Read More »

Masterson's 10 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $80)

Another independently-bottled Canadian 10 year old rye, a la the Jefferson's and the Whistlepig. This one from 35 Maple St. bottlers is much richer than the Jefferson's, but more rye like than the Whistlepig. Nice, supple flavors of vanilla and molasses combine with rye grain spice and subtle herbal notes. This makes a nice sipping rye and is thoroughly enjoyable.

Noah's Mill Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "From the folks at Willett distillery, Noah’s Mill has less than 20 barrels in a batch and will include 15 year old barrels in the dump. The deep amber color prepares the nose for what promises to be an exciting ride. Aromas of ginger, plums, cinnamon, fresh-baked cornbread, and fresh-squeezed cherries. The warm palate packs caramel, nutmeg, and vanilla with lovely cinnamon on the finish. Sourced whiskey. (FM, Spring 2016)" Wine Spectator: "A fiery oak nose eventually yields sweet corn, herbal grass notes and light vanilla. Laser-intense flavors of mint, rye and eau-de-vie- ...Read More »

John E. Fitzgerald "Larceny" Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This small-batch bourbon uses wheat in place of rye to create a soft, rounded character. The mild crème brulee aroma leads into sasparilla and creamy caramel flavors. At 92 proof, it’s a wonder that the alcohol feels so moderate, but it makes its presence known in the cinnamon-firework finish. Attractive bottle design with clever keyhole label. *Best Buy* (KN)" (7/2013) Whisky Advocate: "A new wheated bourbon from Heaven Hill, using wheat instead of rye in the mashbill, resulting in a smooth, easygoing whiskey. Layers of sweetness (creamy vanilla, maple syrup, marzipan) com ...Read More »

High West "American Prairie" Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "Finished 2 years in Quady Black Muscat barrels. Deep amber, ruby hues. Richly sweet, with raspberry preserve, pipe tobacco, dark chocolate, prune, honeysuckle, vanilla, and black tea. Dry leather finish cuts through the sweetness. Unique and peculiar. (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. Adding water brings out distinct cinnamon and peach notes, before fading into vanilla. (KN)" (7/2015) K&L Notes: High West is dedicated to preserving and prom... Read More »

Old Forester Signature 100 Proof Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whisky (750ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 50 Spirits 2013 & Best Buy* This luxurious Bourbon shows layered and dense flavors that run to the darker and drier side: cocoa, espresso, clove and allspice, all wrapped in beautiful caramel and butterscotch aromatics. At 100 proof, the alcohol deservedly feels intense, so best to temper this with a bit of branch-water or ice. (KN)" (7/2013)

David Nicholson Reserve 100 Proof Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

The Nicholson Reserve Kentucky Bourbon is a classic corn/rye mashbill Bourbon also at 100 proof. Basically, if you liked our 100 proof Faultline release from a few years back, this is like a baby version for a $12 discount. There are some great herbaceous accents, lots of pepper from the rye, and a gush of savory notes on the finish, but again the texture is the real star. The nose is brimming with toasted wood and the 50% ABV really dials up all that oak from front to back. The Nicholson Reserve at $32.99 is like the perfect middleground between the sta...

Maker's 46 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $35)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Finished in the barrel with specially seared oak staves, this Bourbon is a new classic. In the glass, it sports a bright maple color, and lively, spicy aromas and flavors of oaky vanilla and tropical fruit touched with clove, ginger and allspice. (KN)" (7/2013) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "This is original 'red wax' Maker's Mark that received additional aging in barrels containing internal 'seared' French oak staves. The original Maker's Mark, being a wheated bourbon (instead of rye, which is typically used), is rather mellow and easy-to-drink. The French oak staves in '46' add firm, ...Read More »
