1997 Ben Nevis 21 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Back In Stock! Top Pick!
1997 Ben Nevis 21 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Ben Nevis sits just at the base of its namesake, Scotland's highest mountain. A coastal distillery in the Western Highlands, Ben Nevis draws its water from the Allt a'Mhuilinn which originates from two pools, Coire Leis and Coire na'Ciste, which are both sited a good way up the mountain. The distillery was founded in 1825, by the gloriously named 'Long John' MacDonald, for whom the renowned Long John blended Scotch was named. After Long John's death in 1856, ownership was passed down to Donald McDonald, his son. In 1989, the distillery was sold to the Ja ...Read More »

1969 Strathclyde 48 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
1969 Strathclyde 48 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Strathclyde distillery is located in the Gorbals on the south side of the River Clyde opposite Glasgow Green and it’s nice to think that an operation so dependent on steam should be located so close to the park where James Watt was struck with inspiration for his vapour-driven engine. The distillery – on the site of an old cotton mill – was initially built by London distiller Seager Evans in 1927 mainly to supply neutral grain spirit for its gins. In 1936, Seager Evans moved into Scotch with the purchase of the Long John brand. In 1957, like many grain d ...Read More »

2006 Craigellachie 12 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Every year the biggest struggle we have when selecting casks isn't necessarily finding ultra-rare casks. If we're willing to pay for them, the diamonds are there. What's much more difficult to find are the affordable sherried malts from good distilleries. Last year we smashed things up with an absolutely stellar Aultmore. This year we've got a few replacements, one of them being this incredible cask of Craigellachie. While it doesn't have the inky, nearly bitter extraction that the Aultmore had, there might not be a better sherried whisky available for t ...Read More »

2010 Caol Ila 7 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Finished Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

We love it when our friends at Hunter Laing bring us young peaters to try. We've done several of these casks of Caol Ila in the past, but I don't think we've ever come across one as absolutely perfect as this little monster. Now some people will notice the description is quiet unusual, a Sherry Finished Butt. We usually expect these young peaters to get filled in to old hoggies and often stay there until we come across them 5-6 years later. Maybe they would have thrown is into an ex-sherry cask for a year or so to ace'd. Now we've moved into a whole new ...Read More »

1996 Linkwood 21 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

The exceptional Linkwood distillery is another one of the grand old Diageo malts that you wonder why they haven't bothered to make a big deal of. Until you dive deeper into how and why the distillery is so important for making them money on the globally viable blended whisky market. After one taste of this Linkwood it's immediately clear that this is one of the heart malts for the great Johnnie Walker Blends. It kind of reminds me of all the things I love about Johnnie Walker that aren't peaty. Johnnie Walker, in particularly the Johnnie Green, is actual ...Read More »

Ardbeg 22 Year Old "Twenty Something" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Ardbeg distillery has become the darling of the peated whisky world over the last two decade. Things seemed bleak for the distillery in the 1980s. The distillery was basically mothballed from 1981 until 1989. It was only for the strong will and dedication of a small group of dreamers that any whisky was distilled there between 1989 and 1997. That's the year that the distillery was purchased by Glenmorangie and begun the complex process of re-launching the line. By 1998 the distillery was running at full steam. Only a few years later and the Ardbeg cr ...Read More »

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Soy sauce, olive brine, peat, honey, oloroso Sherry, brewer’s yeast, bread dough, barley malt and cigar smoke in the bouquet. The flavor that magically includes the innate intense peatiness of Islay malts and the masterly employment of oak barrels phase defines “classy Islay.” Concludes sweetly, without sacrificing the tangy, astringent peatiness that is inherent.

Compass Box "No Name" Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $140)

In late 2017, Compass Box released this outstanding limited-edition whisky called "No Name," a blend of 75.5% Ardbeg, 10.6% Caol Ila, and 13.4% Clynelish with an additional 0.5% French oak-aged Highland malt for extra flavor. We sold through our allocation in a flash, even with the "one bottle limit per customer" dictate slowing things down in the sales queue.

Macallan "Rare Cask" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $300)

Macallan's new Rare Cask uses handpicked first-fill sherry casks from the top 1% of barrels currently aging at the distillery. The result is a richer, darker, more chocolaty version of Macallan with a thicker profile and a complex palate of raisins, sultana, orange peel, and ginger. With the current market craze for first-fill sherry whisky, à la Aberlour, A'Bunadh and Glendronach, the Rare Cask represents an aggressive and more modern approach from the typically conservative Macallan. This is a bold, chewy, full-bodied single malt that showcases the dee ...Read More »

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.

We've made it a point this year to buy as much young Caol Ila as possible! Not only is the distillery cranking out some of the finest peated malt anywhere on Islay, but it's taste extremely delicious even at a very young age. When Signatory showed us this exceptional cask, we knew it would be a struggle to get it to the states at a price that makes sense. Luckily, the new local representation for the brand are old friends and they were able to work out a deal to bring this exceptional cask into stock at a relatively reasonable rate.

Goddamn I love Clynelish. I kind of just want to say the word over and over. Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! It makes even better if you say it with me. The distillery was built in 1967 on the same site as the original of the same name. Due to malt shortages on Islay, the first distillery was fired back up in 1969 and produced some heavily peated malt that's now legendary, but the new distillery developed its own character and continues to produce some of the very finest malt Scotland has to offer.

Macallan 25 Year Old "Distillery Bottling" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Wine Spectator: "An intense candy treat of a whisky that announces itself with rose petal, honey and hard candy on the nose. On the palate this cycles through a number of candied notes-fruity for the most part, with cherry character, but including butterscotch and a slight pine forest flavor. The long finish serves as another tour of the palate, with a nutty element. Sherry casks. (Jack Bettridge, Owen Dugan)" (02/2011) K&L Notes: Extremely limited! Macallan's 25-year-old sherry casks are a modern classic.

Over the years we have bottled a number of wonderful old grain casks for reasonable prices, and today is no exception. This 28 year old beauty is a candyland of excitement. It has flashes of sweet stonefruit and strawberry preserve. The palate jumps from toasted, candied coconut to vanilla shortbread and then back to honey granola and cinnamon sugar toast.

And bottling the whisky at cask-strength without chill-filtration ensures that none of the flavors are stripped out. This is an incredibly complex Islay whisky, with its bonfire smoke, brine, and peppered olive notes balanced by a taming sweetness of vanilla, marshmallow, and toffee.

He wanted to create something with purpose and intention. His dream was to engage with the entire process of whisky making.

The Mortlach distillery is something of an enigma.

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "A collaboration to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Chicago whiskey bar Delilah’s, this burnished- gold whiskey has a fresh apples-and pear aroma softened by a hint of butterscotch. The light, smooth palate unfolds toasty oak, vanilla, fresh pear, hints of gingery spice and a faint whiff of smoke— amazingly, every sip is different, right into the elongated finish. Limited edition, 8,520 bottles available worldwide; new to U.S. starting June 2018." (12/2018) K&L Notes: Happy 25th Anniversary, Delilah’s! From John Glaser: "B ...Read More »

2005 Tullibardine "The Murray" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

A classic Tullibardine whisky, "The Murray" is named for Sir William Murray, Scotland's second Marquess of Tullibardine.

The Murray is the first cask strength whisky made by the distillery this century! 12 years old and bottled at full cask strength, this first-fill bourbon dram is a dream.

Balvenie 17 Year Old Doublewood Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This sherry cask-finished Scotch offers creamy vanilla and crème brûlée, plus a mouthwatering citrus astringency on the midpalate and baking spice finish. Adding water pulls it all together, blending together lemon cream, almond and a gently spiced exhale. (KN)" (12/2017) Whisky Advocate: "A limited edition bottling to commemorate the great David Stewart’s 50th year in the business and, as befits this quiet man, here’s a release that rewards just sitting and listening. This gives more of a nod to Cognac than Speyside; someth ...Read More »

Laphroaig 10 Year Old "Batch 010" 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)

Caol Ila 12 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A seductive brininess and waves of oily peat-reek greet the olfactory sense. The palate entry finds a surprisingly buttery-creamy leaning along with the peat-reek; at midpalate the flavor becomes concentrated, oily, malty sweet, and only moderately peaty. Ends on a sweet malty note. Builds from stage to stage, each phase being better than the last. *Best Buy* " (06/2006) Wine Spectator: "The first flush is fruity, with cherry and ripe berries, and then the smoke wafts in." (03/2017) Whisky Advocate: "Funny to think how rec ...Read More »

Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Rum Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "After regular maturation, this Scotch is “extra matured” in former rum casks. The end result layers rich, mouth-coating dried apricot, honey and Sherry notes on top of Balvenie's usual caramel and light peat profile. It finishes flavorful, though with a distinct burst of alcohol warmth. (KN)" (12/2015) Whisky Advocate: "A new addition to the permanent Balvenie range. Lovely bright gold color. Layers of sweetness (the characteristic Balvenie honey, along with vanilla fudge, nougat, and rich toffee) peppered with dried spice a ...Read More »

Glendronach 12 Year Old Distillery Bottling Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aged in former American whiskey casks, then finished in barrels that previously held PX and oloroso sherries, this single malt balances sweetness, spice and oak. Caramel and vanilla aromas are echoed on the velvety palate, plus cocoa and espresso, finishing with clove, cinnamon and a hint of lemon peel. (KN)" (12/2017) Whisky Advocate: "Nicely sherried. Rich, with maple syrup, honey-drenched citrus, sultana, and a good dried oak spice finish for balance. Well done for a 12 year old, and definite competition for Macallan of t ...Read More »

2003 Balvenie 14 Year "Peat Week" Vintage Single Malt Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2003 Balvenie 14 Year "Peat Week" Vintage Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Another cracking smoky whisky from the newly beloved Peat Week series by The Balvenie. For one week every year, The Balvenie Distillery closes normal operations and distills exclusively heavily peated malt. The peat itself is different from the stuff you'd find on Islay because the organic composition differs from region to region. The terrestrial peats of the highland composed of shrubs, heather, and other highland greenery have a lower phenol levels than the bogs of Islay. Balance is made up by guaiacol and non-phenolic smoke elements. The resulting wh ...Read More »

Laphroaig "Quarter Cask" Islay Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Previously $55) Top Pick!
Laphroaig "Quarter Cask" Islay Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Previously $55)

91 points Whisky Advocate: "The whisky begins sweet and creamy, with notes of vanilla, honey, and ripe malt (reminiscent of a malting floor). Then the Laphroaig signature peat smoke, seaweed, tar, and medicinal notes emerge. Bottling at 48% and without chill-filtering keeps the whisky from being dulled down. A whisky that is very dynamic. Nicely done. (Vol. 15, #2)" Wine Enthusiast: "Bold and overwhelmingly smoky, this golden single malt was matured twice, first in large casks and then transferred to smaller “quarter casks,” for more contact with the ba ...Read More »

Springbank 12 Year Old Cask Strength Campbeltown Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

This most recent batch of Springbank's fan favorite 12 year old cask strength is right in line with what the distillery does best: hints of amontillado sherry on the nose with savory almond notes and accents of caramelized fruit. The richness and the viscosity of the malt make this a standout on the shelf. While Springbank's whisky always demands a premium price, it's easy to see why people are willing to pay it. That faint whisper of smoke on the finish with the phenolic, oily finale is absolutely delicious.

Glenmorangie "Astar" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Glenmorangie "Astar" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

94 points Whisky Advocate: " Glenmorangie Astar returns after a five-year absence. Astar is matured in custom toasted casks made from slow-growing trees on north-facing slopes in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. The barrels harbor bourbon for four years before heading to Glenmorangie. That level of provenance doesn’t come cheap, which is why the original Astar was discontinued in 2012, just four years after its acclaimed appearance. The exquisite Glenmorangie aromas and flavors—floral, with rose hips and orange blossom—are dialed up to new levels of inte ...Read More »

Port Charlotte 10 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The first permanent release of Port Charlotte 10 Year. Apparently, they've got enough whisky to keep this going awhile. We certainly hope so 'cause it's just fabulous. It replaces the multi-vintage Scottish Barley they've sold for years. The new, distinctive green glass bottle distinguishes the Port Charlotte label from the unpeated Bruichladdich line and wonderfully captures the raw power and awesome complexity of the special smoky whisky from west bank of Loch Indaal. As with the previous offerings, the 10 year is 100% Scottish barley grown in the Inve ...Read More »
