1997 Benrinnes 20 Year Old "Signatory"  K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
1997 Benrinnes 20 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

For people who have been following us for a while, you'll remember this special whisky. We've purchased several of these and the 1995 version that's now completely gone. It was always neck and neck with the wonderful 1995 Imperials, which is now 3 times the old price in the warehouse. I was extremely concerned that Signatory would raise the price of this exceptional whisky to unobtainable levels, but after tasting it again from a particularly good cask I knew we had to have this special whisky and keep it reasonable. Benrinnes is one of these unknown Dia ...Read More »

1997 L'Encantada 20 Year Old "Bellair #36" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) Top Pick!
1997 L'Encantada 20 Year Old "Bellair #36" Bas-Armagnac (750ml)

Independent bottler L'Encantada understands what Armagnac lovers want because that's exactly what they are. This group of Armagnac loving friends realized that some of the region's small estates were throwing away legendary eau-de-vie to blends made by the big négociants. They offered those estates a premium to retain the stocks for bottling as single casks at full strength. Many of these estates had never bottled Armagnac nor had any interested in marketing their precious eau-de-vie. Our friends at L'Encantada realized that the soul of Armagnac exists i ...Read More »

1997 Hector Macbeth (Glenfiddich) 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" Single Barrel Cask Strength Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) New!
1997 Hector Macbeth (Glenfiddich) 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" Single Barrel Cask Strength Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

There's just no way to describe the feeling of coming across a splended old cask of Wardhead (trade name for teaspooned Glenfiddich) like this one. You'd expect with the incredible value that these casks offer we'd see more of this type of whisky on the market, but I think suppliers are scared to work with something labelled as a blended malt whisky even when they know it's actually only blended on paper. This magical cask bottled as "Hector Macbeth" was actually distilled at the famous Glenfiddich distillery in Spring of 1997. It was filled into a used ...Read More »

1997 Macduff 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The lovely Macduff Distillery -sold locally under the Glen Deveron label- is one of those tragic cases of great malt lost behind the blends. The owners don't spend much time making a fuss of the little distillery, which was built in 1958. Not much of the whisky is sold as malt and mostly it's marketed in France. The distillery located in Banffshire was a crucial element in the popular William Lawson Blend, but recently the owners have revitalized the Glen Deveron brand with a posh new look and some expensive age stated offerings. Despite the great packag ...Read More »

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This cuvee of 41,832 bottles possesses a Bordeaux-like austerity, as well as abundant quantities of sweet cassis, cedar, and spice notes in the complex bouquet. The dark ruby color is followed by a dense, concentrated wine with an emphasis on elegance and symmetry as opposed to power and flamboyance. The finish is quite tannic.

Enormously full and ripe, layered and textured with a richness which is almost indescribable, it truly has it all, the rose petals, tar, and licorice of the nose, the succulent density of the flavors, the endless finish which rises to a crescendo of sensual authority.

The bouquet is deep, pure and shows lovely secondary layers of complexity in its mélange of honey, fresh apricot, oranges, crème brulée, soil tones and a gentle framing of buttery oak.

1997 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux

"Malescot has long enjoyed a very favorable reputation, particularly for long lived, traditionally made, firmly styled wines...The well placed vineyards (some of them adjacent to those of Chateau Margaux) now tend to produce medium weight wine that can be compelling because of its combination of elegance and authoritative flavors."

1997 Darroze Domaine au Martin Bas Armagnac (750ml)

This small estate outside of Hontanx produces extremely high quality Baco. The nose is ultra rich and decadent. Some dense fruit but bold fresh and dried spices and roasted coffee and toffee flavors. The front is the balance between the mellow and rich, moving toward the roasted dark flavors and a very long spicy finish.

1997 Gaja "Sperss" Nebbiolo Langhe

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A virtually perfect effort is the 1997 Sperss (30,000 bottles), which represents the essence of truffles, earth, and black cherries in its striking aromatics and multidimensional, opulent, full-bodied palate. The acidity seems low because of the huge glycerin levels and prodigious concentration of fruit, but I suspect it is normal in the scheme of oenological measurement. This profound wine requires 3-4 years of cellaring, and should age well for 30-35 years. (RP)" (06/2001) 95-97 points Stephen Tanzer's Intern ...Read More »

I have already wolfed down two bottles of the 1997 Impostor McCoy (529 cases) with equally voracious friends. A thick, juicy, massive Syrah, it gushes copious quantities of licorice-infused blackberry fruit offering smoke, coffee, and meaty notes. The wine is mouth-filling, teeth-staining, and loaded.
