1988 Cambus 29 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
1988 Cambus 29 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The shuttererd Cambus distillery had a spectacular history in the development of modern whisky and has had an equally important, albeit shorter and more recent, history in K&L's direct import program. At the dawn of the 20th century not everyone was in agreement that grain whisky produced on a Coffey still could actually be considered whisky. The extraordinary quality of Cambus was a key component in establishing that precedent which is a huge part of today's whisky trade. In fact, for many years, Cambus formed a large portion of Johnnie Walker Blue. Unf ...Read More »

1988 North British 30 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
1988 North British 30 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)

A co-op of sorts, the North British distillery was founded in Edinburgh in 1885 by a group of gentlemen looking to break into the grain whisky business. At the time there was a virtual monopoly on grain production controlled by a company called DCL. North British found great success and has grown its production over the years due to the tremendous quality and quantity of their primarily maize or wheat distillate. The knock on effects of this enormous production are incredibly inexpensive, yet quite well aged stocks of premium grain whisky on the blending ...Read More »

1988 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac Top Pick!
1988 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac

93 points James Suckling: "There's licorice here along with mint, some lead pencil and flowers. It's full and round displaying wonderful vanilla and plum flavors. Very silky and refined yet dense and caressing. A beauty, though it does turn a little dry, always revealing its wood." (11/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Very pretty aromas of vanilla, tobacco, berry and chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied, with soft tannins and a berry, chocolate finish. Not very dense. This pales compared with the other top Pauillacs. I never thought this was a perfect win ...Read More »

1988 Latour, Pauillac (1.5L)

96 points Wine Spectator: "So minty, with loads of subtle ripe fruit and eucalyptus undertones. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a long, long finish. Caresses every inch of the palate. It's the quality of the tannins that's impressive here. What a great and beautiful wine. Should improve for many years to come. (JS, Web Only-2009)" 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is perhaps the best First Growth from this vintage. At 20-years of age, this has a delightful, cedar-infused nose with dark berry fruits, a touch of scorched earth, tar an ...Read More »

1988 Rieussec, Sauternes (1.5L)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted in Sauternes with Charles Chevalier, the 1988 Rieussec is a vintage that Chevalier himself claimed to be his favorite. I can understand why. It has an unerringly youthful bouquet with vibrant citrus fruit, wild honey, mandarin and mineral scents, a bouquet that seems to have electricity flowing through it. The same can be said for the palate that is full of tension and vigor, almost clinical in terms of focus with alluring viscosity and wonderful length. This bowled me over with its charm and breeding.

(JS, Web Only-2009)" 91 points Vinous: "The 1988 Pichon Baron is a wine that I have tasted four or five times before although not since 2011. Deep in colour, it has a tightly wound bouquet with blackberry, wild hedgerow and cedar, touches of tobacco coming through, maybe just a hint of greenness although nothing to get concerned about. The palate is medium-bodie ...Read More »

1988 Gaja Barbaresco (1.5L) (lightly bin soiled, nicked label/capsule)

Jancis Robinson: "Increasing brick at the rim though the colour is quite dense and smudgy throughout. Intense notes of black olive and cooked tomato and the sweetness of meat long cooked. Fine and dry and yet still has a real uprightness of structure. With time it just becomes more perfumed and again that tea aroma comes back. Quite a bit of grip in the tannin and acid at the end but its long. Less elegant on the finish than 1994. Later: develops aromas of sweet dark toffee.

1988 Margaux, Margaux

95 points Wine Spectator: "This has both sinew and flesh, with taut dried red currant, blackberry and plum skin notes that are forced to expand outward as the core of black tea, charcoal, plum paste and dark humus fills in quickly behind them. The charcoal-tinged grip carries the finish, with more bass than treble at first, but there's perfume here as well. Seriously long and the most overlooked of the truly great vintages here. Drink now through 2025. (JM, Web Only—2014)" 93 points James Suckling: "Mineral and blueberry skin and flowers on the nose. It ...Read More »

1988 Dunn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points John Gilman: "Randy Dunn’s 1988 Napa bottling of Cabernet is starting to drink very well indeed and is impressively complex and soil-driven in personality. The deep and very pure nose wafts from the glass in a blend of cassis, black cherries, dried eucalyptus, lovely minerality and a topnote of cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very complex, with a fine core, superb focus and grip and outstanding length and grip on the long and classy finish. There is still a bit of backend tannin here, but the wine is now entering it ...Read More »

1988 Guiraud, Sauternes (375ml)

(JS, Web-2009)" 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The Guiraud 1988 offers the most pleasurable aromatics of the 1980s with a lifted perfumed nose of lanolin, beeswax, brown sugar and quince that all vie for attention. There is a pleasant adhesive scent and fine delineation. The palate is fresh in the mo ...Read More »

Opulent and beautiful. (JS, Web Only-2009)" 92 points Vinous: "The 1988 Léoville Barton has a lovely nose of brambly black fruit, melted tar, tobacco leaf and undergrowth, very traditional in style but after three decades, remaining fresher and more vibrant than many of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied and possesses more fruit and greater density than the Langoa-Barton. ...Read More »

Finishes with loads of ripe fruits, tobacco and cedar. Big and juicy wine. Give it a couple of years still. (JS, Web-2009)" 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ex-cellar bottle tasted blind at the Lynch Bages vertical. There are more red fruits on the nose of the ’88 Lynch Bages rather than black: raspberry, cedar, black tea and a touch of earth. Very good definition. Th ...Read More »

1988 Darroze Domaine de Lagoue 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.

1988 Domaine Faiveley Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru
Bid on this bottle of 1988 Domaine Faiveley Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Faiveley made a stunning Clos Vougeot in 1988, which is oozing with the smell of red currants and toasty oak. In the mouth, it is pure velvet, jammy, berry fruit, and has a long, heady, alcoholic finish. It is a big wine by the standards of 1988, and while I did not see a great deal of tannin in it, the wine's sheer size suggests it will last for up to a decade. (RP)" (12/1989)

1988 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des Ducs"
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1988 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des Ducs" (90JG). John Gilman: "Speaking of atypical Clos des Ducs, the 1988 seems about as far removed from a classic Ducster as I have ever tasted. Stylistically, it reminds me more of a successful 1983, rather than a 1988. And yet, despite its idiosyncratic nature, this is a wine of admirable depth, complexity and (even) style. The bouquet offers up some scents recognizable as Clos des Ducs: cherry fruit, coffee, herb tones and sous bois, as well as some very uncharacteristic notes of cassis and cigar ash. Reportedly the d’Angervilles experimented with a much higher degree of toast on their barrels in 1988, which seems to have permanently marred the wine with this 'ashen' quality. On the palate the wine is deep, admirably concentrated and very well-balanced, with fine delineation, and excellent grip and tang on the long finish. The 1988 is still a few years away from primetime drinking, but it is reso

1988 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne
Bid on this bottle of 1988 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne (98VN, 94RP, 93WS). Vinous: "One of the two or three most moving wines in this vertical, the 1988 Cristal is eternal. Deep and vertical, with Gothic spires of soaring aromatic, flavor and structural intensity, the 1988 has it all. At thirty years of age, the 1988 is fresh, vibrant and incredibly powerful. Lemon peel, white flower, chalk and almonds are all given an extra kick of vibrancy from the bright acids and underlying energy of the vintage. Even after three decades, the 1988 remains searing, classically austere and beautifully focused, with tremendous pedigree and stunning balance. The 1988 is a rare Cristal where the Chardonnay, at 48% of the blend, is on the higher side. 'When I joined Roederer in 1989, we were blending the 1988s,' Lécaillon explains. 'They were such hard wines to work with because the acidities were so high. My teeth suffered. I thought ‘am I going to have to deal with this for the rest of my l

1988 La Lagune, Haut Medoc (Very High Shoulder)

From the WineCellarInsider.com: "Chateau La Lagune produces a refined, feminine style of wine that offers aromatic complexity and elegant textures. Even though the chateau is located in the Haut Medoc appellation, the wine could easily be confused with a Margaux wine in blind tastings. Most vintages do not require years before the wine matures. 2005 was the first vintage since 1990 that brought attention back to the property for its beautiful style of Bordeaux wine and a contender for the top wine of the Haut Medoc appellation.
