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 »

Old Potrero "K&L Exclusive Barrel #9" Single Malt Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml) Top Pick!
Old Potrero "K&L Exclusive Barrel #9" Single Malt Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml)

Old Potrero has finally begun a formal single cask program and we were so excited we bought 2! Barrel #9 is a sophisticated well balanced number. At 61.57% alcohol it shows the more nuanced side of 100% rye malt. Both barrels were double distilled in traditional copper pot stills on 8/1/2012 and bottled exclusively for K&L on 7/27/2018, just 4 days short of their 6th birthdays.

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 »

Whistle Pig 14 Year Old The Boss Hog 5th Edition "The Spirit of Mauve" Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml - 1 bottle limit, ships as 1.5L) Top Pick!
Whistle Pig 14 Year Old The Boss Hog 5th Edition "The Spirit of Mauve" Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml - 1 bottle limit, ships as 1.5L)

The makers of this 100% Rye whiskey put it simply: "The name says it all. This is our biggest, most profound whiskey for the Boss Hog in all of us." The fifth release of the Boss Hog whiskey is named in honor of the company's celebrity pig Mauve. The oinker had an "undying" fondness and appetite for apples so the whiskey aged in Calvados casks for 13 years and delivers "a unique blend of sweet and spiced flavors with a fine balance between American power and French sophistication."

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.

The Hampden Distillery is easily the world's most important and historical rum distillery still in operation. The Estate is redefining the meaning of terroir when it comes to rum. Located in the lush tropical northwestern Trewlawny Parish, the Hampden Estate has been cultivating and process cane since at least the middle of the 18th century. Not long after commercial sugar production started, distillation followed. The Hampden Estate produced rum in more or less the same way for the next 250 years, surviving on bulk sales to blenders in Europe. The power ...Read More »

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 negociants. They offered those estates a premium to retain the stocks for bottling as single casks at full strength.

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!

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich, fruity and enticing, this sweet vermouth is warmed with notes of fig and dried cherries, and just faint hints of spiced gingerbread and bitter orange peel.

(KN)" (04/2014) K&L Notes: Carpano's Antica Formula, from the original recipe developed by Antonio Benedetto Carpano in 1786, is a sweet vermouth of the highest quality.

Missed the release of A Midwinter Night's Dram? Have no fear, your port finished High West opportunity knocks.

Highland Park 18 Year Old Isle of Orkney Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

94 points Whisky Advocate: "Introduced to the Highland Park portfolio in 1997. Gentle peat, soft toffee, floral notes, and honey on the beautifully fragrant nose. Superbly balanced on the velvety palate, with brittle toffee, stewed fruits, peat, honey, and a hint of coffee. Smoke and more toffee mingle in the long, elegant finish. (Vol. 21, #1)" 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Scotch is a big boy—look for assertive, brawny flavors and alcohol burn. However, it still has nuance. Aging in Sherry oak casks draws out a dark amber cast and rich caramel, hon ...Read More »

Johnnie Walker Blue Blended Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $180)

97 points Whisky Advocate: "Magnificently powerful and intense. Caramels, dried peats, elegant cigar smoke, seeds scraped from vanilla beans, brand new pencils, peppercorn, coriander seeds, and star anise make for a deeply satisfying nosing experience. Silky caramels, bountiful fruits of ripe peach, stewed apple, orange pith, and pervasive smoke with elements of burnt tobacco. An abiding finish of smoke, dry spices, and banoffee pie sweetness.

2007 Habitation Velier "Worthy Park - WPL" Jamaica Pure Single Rum (750ml)

The wonderful Worthy Park distillery in Saint Catherine Parish is maybe one of Jamaica's newest distillery, but the history and quality of the operation is second to none. Habitation Velier has acquired several small-batch vintages from the special distillery, all aged on site. This particular offering is from their "light" spirit, implying lower esters. That does not preclude it from being extremely powerful and complex. After 10 years of aging at the estate they've lost over 64% of the initial volume. On paper this rum is extremely similar to the 2005, ...Read More »

Rittenhouse Bottled in Bond 100 Proof Rye Whiskey (750ml)

1990 L'Encantada 27 Year Old "Domaine le Parre #18" Tenarèze Armagnac (750ml)

The unusual Domaine Le Parre is the first producer in Tenarèze to be uncovered by the crew at L'Encantada. This is a beautiful little estate situated on a plateau, which boasts boulbène soils and was planted to mostly Baco with a small percentage of Ugni Blanc. The domaine stopped cultivating vines in 1995 and was famous for having a giant barrel fashioned from an old train car. While the domaine's eau-de-vie were top notch, the heavier clay soils resulted in eau-de-vie that need extra time to truly become expressive, but after about 20 years, it's clear ...Read More »

Balvenie "Doublewood" 12 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Balvenie "Doublewood" 12 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Silky and downright succulent, this Scotch is made with two types of oak casks—as the DoubleWood name suggests—but it’s really all about the influence of the ex-Sherry cask. Aromas suggest golden raisins and dried apricots. The silky palate starts out moderately smoky, but glides into a richer, honeyed, nutty profile that finishes with cocoa and clove accents. (KN)" (12/2015) K&L Notes: For shipping orders these ship as a bottle only, no gift box or packaging will be included.

Balvenie 21 Year Old "Port Wood" Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A port cask finish gives this Scotch a copper penny hue. The aroma suggests baked apple, while the palate has a chewy, concentrated vanilla-oak profile, leading to walnut, leather and espresso. The rounded finish sings with sherry and spice. Adding water coaxes out baked apple sweetness and dials back the oak.
