2006 Highland Park 13 Year Old "Cask Of The Forest" Cask #1994 First Fill European Oak Sherry Butt Single Cask, Cask Strength Isle of Orkney Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $230) (Elsewhere $230)
Top Pick!
This extremely limited 2019 release from Highland Park never made its way to California, until now! Only 580 bottles were produced and we've secured the lion's share for K&L (The rest was only available in New York). The original release featured 3 casks, each cask celebrating the elements that make Highland Park unique. The Cask Of The Forest is a tribute to Highland Park's incredible wood policy and the influence that it has on the whisky. Oak for this cask was sustainably sourced from a forest in the North of Spain before being carefully seasoned with...

1997 Mortlach 24 Year Old "Hart Brothers Finest Collection" K&L Exclusive Cask Strength Single Sherry Butt Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Top Pick!
There isn't much that needs to be said about this. Mortlach meet sherry, sherry Mortlach. Two and a half decades later the marriage is still a perfect one. What's the secret? Listening and mutual respect or raw unbridled attraction? Probably both. There may be no right answer, but no one questions that these two belong together. The Mortlach distillery, known locally as the "Beast of Dufftown," is one of those great distilleries that has never been given proper attention by its owners. The distillery has quietly been a key component in the great Scotch b...

2000 Glen Scotia 18 Year Old "Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseur's Choice" K&L Exclusive Cask #326 Single Refill American Oak Hogshead Nonchillfiltered Cask Strength Campbeltown Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The wonderful Glen Scotia distillery has long been a favorite of Campbeltown lovers. For ages the mostly unknown distillery was not open to the general public and it quietly made excellent, if slightly idiosyncratic malt, to be used in blends and sold occasionally as single malt. The distillery was founded in 1832 and is only one of two historic distilleries in the once important whisky region of Campbeltown to make it through to modern times. It was subject to a management buyout in 1987 and remained in private hands until purchase by the Loch Lomond gr...

The hits never stop from the excellent team in Dornoch. This treble of casks from a famous, undisclosed distillery on the southern coast of Islay represents some of the finest values we've ever come across. Even considering the extreme inflation in prices on old Islay malts, we would have never previously been able to offer casks of this quality from this exceptional traditional distillery at this price. But thanks to the incredible network that the Thompson Brothers have developed we've been able to garner unprecedented access. An exceptional example of...

Kavalan Solist "Moscatel" Cask Strength Single Barrel Taiwanese Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Previously $500) (Previously $500)
Top Pick!
93 points Whisky Advocate: "Rich and intense nose, with paradise cake, honey, dried apple, plum, and crème d’abricot. The mouthfeel is dry, nutty, and fruity, with a silky consistency. The cask strength is more noticeable here, but as it dissipates, there is some late complexity of plum skin and coffee bean with wave after effortless wave of flavor lasting for minutes on end. Finish is hot and nutty, with moist coffee grains. (JM)" (04/2017)
Price: $299.99

94 points Whisky Advocate: "Notably balanced and elegant, the colorful palette of whiskies combines for tremendous depth of flavor. Soft, sweet butterscotch and orange peel meet poached pears and stone fruits. Earthiness appears as dried autumn leaves, coffee, old oak, and tobacco. Among the tangle of spices, tasters identified chili pepper, allspice, cloves, and universally adored its ginger note. Finally, wisps of smoke and sea salt. Overall, it feels generously malty, with the grain whisky lending broad sweetness and supple mouthfeel across the long f...

The hits never end from the excellent team in Dornoch.

We couldn't be prouder to be partnered with the Thompson brothers to bring their incredible hand-selected, independently bottled, single-cask single malts to the US market while we wait for their own spectacular single malts to mature. The brothers have made connections with all the major suppliers of good quality malt throughout Scotland, so while many new independent bottlers are paying high broker premiums for access to interesting stock, the boys up at Dornoch seem to have access at incredibly reasonable prices to solid blue chip stocks. We're not en...

Another wonderful cask of Ledaig, which we acquired at a seemingly outrageous value. The sherried expressions of Ledaig are highly sought-after although their profile range wildly from the extremely unusual to the only slightly strange. This falls toward the slightly less crazy flavor profile although still has plenty of dense umami, gorgeous peat and measured sherry character. The Tobermory distillery on the hard to get to Isle of Mull is one of the least explored. The lovely town of Tobermory is famous for its colorful houses, but the distillery has st...

For years, we never saw Aberlour bottled by Indepedents. Considering the current interest in the distillery, it doesn't seem prudent for the current owners to be releasing stocks for others to bottle, but nevertheless we've seen 3-4 barrels of Aberlour pop up on the independent market over the last couple of years. One of the most interesting and exciting parts of enjoying Independently bottled single malts is finding unique expressions of distilleries you know and love. Connecting the familiar with the idiosyncratic nature of each individual barrel is a...

The Glenrothes distillery has become one of Scotland's most prominent and recognizable over the years. They were once famous for relying exclusively on vintage releases. Situated on the Burn of Rothes in the town of the same name, it was founded in 1879. The distillery is just a quick jaunt from the famous Glen Grant and less famous Speyburn Distillery, as well as the notable still manufacturer Forsythe. The distillery had long been a part of the Edrington Group and its predecessors, but in 2010 it was sold to famous wine merchant Berry Bros & Rudd in ex...

2006 Mortlach 15 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Hogshead Cask Strength Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The Mortlach distillery is one of Scotland's very best. Located in the heart of Speyside, this special distillery is very rarely found as a single malt. The little valley at the southern edge of Dufftown has been the location of a licensed distillery since 1823, but was most likely the site of illicit distillation long before that. It was Dufftown's first legal distillery after excise reform and would anchor the town as one of Scotland's most important distilling communities. The spirit was prized from the very beginning and was purchased by John Walker ...

The gorgeous Benriach distillery is one of Speyside's most unique. The distillery, built in 1898, was promptly purchased and shuttered by nearby Longmorn Distillers and remained silent for many decades. It was purchased in 1965 by the Glenlivet Co. and refurbished before being sold to Seagram's in the late '70s. It was always a hub of experimentation and remains filled with crazy expressions and unusual cask fills, with both peated and floor malted versions. It's rather rare to see independently bottled Benriach, but it seems Alistair Hart's relationship...

Nikka Coffey Still Japanese Grain Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
92 points Whisky Advocate: "Sweet, with subtle, crisp, nutty oak, then comes fudge, ripe banana, and peach. The overall effect is like eating vanilla ice cream with toffee fudge and hazelnut sprinkles. The structure is thick and physical, the palate sweet and quite fat, with light hints of raspberry, fruit salad. A jag of acidity freshens the delivery on the finish. With water there’s more toffee, and it becomes slightly more yielding, with less oak. For me the gold standard of grain. (DB, Fall 2015)" 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The name of this whisky ...

Nikka "Yoichi" Japanese Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This elegant single malt from Nikka bears a dark, vibrant gold color, with smoke and caramel aromas. On the palate, look for well-balanced notes of citrus peel, cedar and oak, and a gentle waft of smoke. An astringent sensation on the finish sets the mouth watering, leading to a full-bodied, almost oily texture. Recommended for sipping neat. (KN)" (02/2013) 92 points Whisky Advocate: "Yoichi age statements are gone for now, but if the whisky stays this good, I can live with that. Black earthy peat, smoldering fires, a turned...

2010 Pulteney 10 Year Old "Hart Brothers Finest Collection" K&L Exclusive Cask Strength Single Hogshead Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Top Pick!
The wonderful Pulteney Distillery in the town of Wick is one of the north coast's most well loved. While it remains under the radar to the greater drinking public, the Scotch community has long sung its praises. The distillery is one of the few that still manages to sell the odd cask here and there, but until recently it was relatively unusual to see on the Independent Bottlers lists. We've recently picked up a few casks and very rarely do the malts from this seaside distiller ever let us down. The distillery itself, located on the eastern coast of the n...

Even at this young age, a cask of Longmorn is an real rarity. Arguably the crown jewel of the Chivas portfolio, this wonderful distillery was once rather plentiful on the independent bottlers market. Gordon & Macphail has been the most prolific bottler of this special distillery, owing likely to the fact that they still own the original trademark for the label, but in the last 10 years we've seen very little. Located outside the city of Elgin and a stone's throw from their rival BenRiach, we only see the occasional distillery release stateside. The disti...

A Diageo blending workhorse, Inchgower is a principal component (along with Blair Athol) of the Bell’s blend, which we sadly don’t see here in the United States. Due to a cloudy wort and a slightly unusual middle cut that runs from 70% all the way down to 55% in the spirits run, Inchgower tends towards the fuller spicier side of things and away from the high-toned fruits found early in the spirits run. Couple that with 22 years in a refill sherry butt and we’ve got a decadent spicy whisky on our hands with the mellowness of long aging. A wonderful combin...

2009 Talisker 11 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Hogshead Cask Strength Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

What can we say about these exceptional Talisker stocks except that we simply wish we could get more. The special distillery on Skye was once completely off limits for independent bottlers. We bottled the first IB Talisker we'd seen in decades back in 2014, a young 5 year old that was unbelievable good. Now more than a half decade later, those same stocks are incredibly still available and significantly more mature. This gorgeous Talisker exemplifies everything we love about the magical distillery. Truly born of the sea, the character of Talisker is dist...

It is devilishly hard to start a single malt distilley. It takes both courage and conviciton to enter a business that requires years to produce a decent product, let alone a great one. If you're able to make a 3+ year old whisky that tastes phenomenal - you're likely to have nothing but continued success as you age. This is just what we have here - a stunning example of American Single Malt - perhaps the best currerntly available. A distinctly Scottish feel with a Virginian twist - the climate in Virignia has markedly more intense seasonal shifts than Sc...

Teaninich just celebrated 200 years in business, and they've come a long way since their early days as the first legal distillery built in the north Highlands. It was also the first to have electricity and a telephone before the turn of the century, and they've been a leader in innovation ever since. 2013 marked the entry of Diageo and a massive investment; six new copper was stills and six spirit stills nearly doubling production.

1997 Strathisla 24 Year Old "Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseur's Choice" K&L Exclusive Cask #47793 Single Refill Hogshead Nonchillfiltered Cask Strength Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
This picturesque distillery has long been a critical component to the Chivas Regal profile. While the distillery is widely used in blends, it's rarely bottled as a single malt. It can be a bit of a tricky malt to work with, but when a cask is in its prime - it's sublime. The oldest licensed distillery in Scotland, Strathisla has been making whisky since 1786 - a year before the US Constitution was signed. While it was a famous malt in the early part of the 20th century, it's been all but absent the market for decades. The exception, as with so many top n...

Kirin Fuji Japanese Single Grain Whisky (750ml)

Produced by the Japanese brewing giant, Kirin, in the Fuji Gotemba distillery situated on the Southeastern side of Mt. Fuji, this single grain whisky is Kirin's entry into the US Whisky market. The distillery houses an unusual still setup. They have pot stills in addition to a column/doubler setup similar to what you'd see in Kentucky allowing them to produce a wide range of styles in one facility. By having multiple types of distillate at their disposal, the facility can produce a complex single grain. The end result is a grain whisky that offers a wide...

Glentauchers has a long history as an integral component in many famous blends. First created to supply malt for Buchanans it developed into a key part of Teachers, and finally today it’s a workhorse for Ballantines. The sad result is we rarely have a chance to appreciate the malt on its own. This 10 year wine cask finished example is pleasantly fruity with floral and honey top notes and a lovely red fruit basket complexity from the cask. A superb daily drinker for those who appreciate having something fun and different around.

2009 Ledaig 12 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Hogshead Cask Strength Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The wild peated malt from the Tobermory distillery has slowly but surely gathered a serious following over the years. Ledaig (pronounced lay-chick) is one of Scotland's most idiosyncratic spirits. Often there's a desire to compare it to its smoke island sisters on Islay to the south, but the whisky truly has its own character and isn't easily compared to any other distillers out there. Located on the picturesque and farflung Isle of Mull, the tiny town of Tobermory is famous for its colorful houses. The whisky distillery there was founded in 1798 making ...

Top Pick!
The excellent distillery that's garnering so much hype these days was unheard of just a few years ago. While the distillery is focused mainly on the heavy sherry offerings, this exciting first fill ex-bourbon cask is a window into the unique character of this special distillery. Opened relatively late in 1967 just outside of the town of Aberlour, it's in very good company geographically. Directly to the north is the wonderful Aberlour distillery and to the west Dailuaine. Due south you'll find Benrinnes and a bit further GlenFarclas. Finding an expressio...

Benriach is quickly becoming one of the most attractive names in Scotch. They've won some huge awards, particularly for their slightly smoky 12 Year Old expression designed by the illustrious Rachel Barrie. Rachel is extremely adept at developing products that offer nuance and complexity, while not compromising on flavor. What we don't see much out of most distilleries these days are LOUD whiskies - ones that step up and shout at you. And while we don't always want to be screamed at, it's impossible to deny the thrilling feeling of getting packed into a ...

Amrut 6 Year Old "K&L Exclusive" Ex-Oloroso Sherry Butt #3890 Unpeated Indian Barley Indian Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The award winning Amrut Distillery has been producing spirits in Bangalore since the 1940s, but it wasn't until 2004 that the Amrut Single Malt was properly launched. The main plant where Amrut is made was built in 1987 and eschews the use of automation and computerization in favor of hands on work. Production is very similar to Scottish single malt, save for the extreme climatic differences. The increased heat and humidity mean extremely fast maturation and high angel's share. For all that we love about the wonderful Amrut malts, our one complaint has b...

Lost Lantern 2022 Single Cask #10: St. George Spirits American Single Malt Whiskey (750ml)
New!
Single cask, cask strength single malt from St. George?!? We had to do a double take. This won't stick around long and supplies are extremely limited. Despite our best efforts we coudln't buy the entire cask from Lost Lantern. Fresh, floral, almost tropical. At 106.7 it's a big pour that goes down easy. It's also almost certainly going to be a collector's item that gets stashed away in the most exclusive booze bunkers.

Whisky Advocate: "Hugely floral and perfumed on the nose, with rose petals, violet candies, and dried orange peel. This is the Gewürztraminer of American single malts—sweet lychee, laced with sachet aromas that explode as if opening Grandma’s dresser drawer. The palate is more tropical; dried pineapple, canned peach syrup, and spice. This could be polarizing, but it’s utterly captivating and worth a try.

The wonderful "urban" Glen Garioch is one of Scotland's oldest. Founded in 1797, it sits in the heart of the Scottish breadbasket, the fertile lands in the relatively temperate eastern highlands producing the vast majority of Scotland's barley crop. While the warrant to distill was official in '97, they were likely making whisky here many many decades before that. The stupendous and underrated distillery is in the heart of a residential neighborhood in the small town of Oldmeldrum and has become one of our very favorites. It gets little attention in the ...

Nikka "Miyagikyo" Japanese Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Nikka's Miyagikyo distillery is back on the market with a fantastic new offering that doesn't disclose the age, but has no problem disclosing serious flavor. The sherry integration of the whisky is utterly marvelous. It's clearly marked by classic notes of fudge, fruitcake, and toffee, but all three profiles are so harmonious and fluid that it's difficult to hold on to them for more than a second. Nikka's whiskies are always delicate and feminine in style, and this malt is no different. The beauty is what stuns you, rather than the power or the concentra...

Tomatin is a fascinating distillery with a unique history and many incarnations, from starting as a bulk blender and supplier to eventually shifting to a steadfast focus on quality single malt production. From the early 1900s through the mid '70s, Tomatin grew continuously. They added stills multiple times as demand for their product increased exponentially. By 1975, they were the largest single malt production facility in Scotland. Sadly, due to market forces, they never operated at their full capacity. By the mid '80s, the massive bust in the market fo...

The strikingly underappreciated Miltonduff distillery is unique in so many ways. Built on the site of an old mill for the Pluscarden Abbey, the distillery's old stone buildings hide one of Speyside's most delicious malts. Originally a Priory founded by King Alexander II in 1230, the area became renowned for illicit distillation. Originally licensed in 1824, the name "Milton" was taken from a still that operated on the property. The Duff family owned the lands surrounding the abbey, hence the name Miltonduff.

Few things in the whiskey world are as exciting as a new addition to the Compass Box core lineup.

The always impressive Highland Park is one of Scotland's most reliable malts. The often awarded distillery is a favorite of many, yet has remained slightly in the shadows.
