1996 Bowmore 22 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
1996 Bowmore 22 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Independent casks of Bowmore are the best. Flat out, there is no other distillery's whisky that offers so much more in single casks than in the modern distillery bottlings. If you have only tasted Bowmore's offical 12, 15, and 18 year old bottlings, while they're perfectly tasty, you owe it to yourself to indulge in the hedonistic magic of pure, unadulterated, Bowmore. While the Morrison era of the distillery beginning in the 1960's is known for some of the most legendary whiskies in history, the glory hasn't come to an end. The purity, intensity, and wi ...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 »

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

Usually when we're offered old peated malt, it comes with some expected sticker shock. We've had great opportunities in previously offering some older peated stocks, in particular from Old Particular via the Bowmore Distillery. And while those whiskies are relatively affordable compared to other Islays on the market, they are by no means overtly undervalued. They're fairly priced, but still a stark premium above a regular Highlander. Right now, if we want to buy 12 year old Laphroaig in a private barrel we're paying upwards of £100 a bottle before import ...Read More »

1996 Auchroisk 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Let's get the hardest part out of the way - It's pronounced "Ah-thrusk." This non-peated nutty and spicy malt is the result of hot and fast whisky making. A quick mash of the malt, a short fermentation period, and a rapid boil in the wash still leave this whisky heavy and rich. A style that makes it a cult favorite for drinkers and blender's alike. Located just south of the Burn of Mulben and east of the River Spey, Auchroisk was originally built to supply J&B with malt for their famous blend. There have been distillery bottlings since 1986, but it is mo ...Read More »

1996 Tobermory 22 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

There is only one distillery on the Isle of Mull and while it has a history dating back to the late 1700's, for much of that history, the distillery has been closed. Fortunately for us, in the 1990s the distillery was opened again after its most recent 11 year closure, and has gone back to producing classic island malts. With its small production of less than 1 million liters per year the distillery makes two very different malts today. Tobermory is the namesake malt of the distillery and is generally, although confusingly, not always unpeated. Ledaig, i ...Read More »

1996 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Pichon-Longueville Baron has a deep garnet core with some bricking on the rim. The nose is fragrant and generous with more red fruit than black, cedar and tobacco, fine definition, perhaps a little rustic in keeping with the winemaking at the time, but certainly giving lots of pleasure. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin -- a cohesive Pauillac with plenty of depth and fine balance. The acidity lends this plenty of freshness and it does not shortchange you with plenty of tarry, cedary fruit. Y ...Read More »

1996 Haut-Bages Libéral, Pauillac

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at Farr's horizontal. A dense, surly, blackberry/liquorice tinged nose. A lot of new oak yet to be resolved. Dates and raisin. A very high extraction on the toasty palate. Blackberry, kirsch, liquroice. Quite decadent, but good purity and definition. Certainly well-made. Cherry-tinged finish. Good length.

1996 Guiraud, Sauternes

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "For sure, the 1996 has a more composed bouquet than the 1995 with marmalade, Clementine and touches of brown sugar and chlorine emerging from the almost Barsac-like aromatic profile. The palate has a waxy texture, touches of spice and marmalade that segue into a tense, bitter lemon and bitter orange finish. Comparing the 1996 with recent vintages, it just fall short in terms of the complexity and nuance, but it remains a pleasurable Sauternes, albeit one outshone by the succeeding vintage. Drink now-2020. Tasted April 2013 ...Read More »

1996 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Lafite-Rothschild was remarkably deep in color considering that it is now 20 years in age. The bouquet is classic Pauillac with pencil shavings and sous-bois infusing the black fruit, masculine and a little aloof, yet focused and very well delineated. The palate is very well balanced with crisp blackberry and boysenberry fruit, spicier than I recollect, a crescendo of flavors so that it seems understated at first but fans out with a sense of confidence towards the finish. I think this still has more to g ...Read More »

1996 Dal Forno Romano Amarone della Valpolicella

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dal Forno's virtually perfect 1996 is undoubtedly the finest Amarone I have ever tasted. Its inky black/purple color is accompanied by extraordinarily pure, graphite-infused, blackberry, plum, mineral, licorice, and espresso flavors. Despite its monumental intensity and richness, this wine is not heavy, somehow managing to conceal its 17.5% alcohol! As compelling an Italian wine as I have ever tasted, it should prove to be unbelievably long-lived. (RP)" (10/2001) 97 points James Suckling: "Amarone might not be ...Read More »

Hard not to drink now, but leave it alone. (JS, Web Only-2007)" 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 1996 Latour is a wine that continues to perplex.

It has an attractive bouquet with blackcurrant pastilles, briary, a touch of gravel and dried orange peel. As I commented a few years ago, this is a 1996 that is not as immediate as others, but seems to find its voice with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a soy-tinged opening. This is well balanced and quite rounded in the mouth, quite masculine and perhaps having dispensed with some of the f ...Read More »

The opaque purple color gives way to a medium to full-bodied, tannic, backward wine with terrific purity, a sweet, concentrated mid-palate, and a long, blockbuster finish.

Although there is noticeable bricking on the rim, there is plenty of freshness on the nose, quite floral with crushed strawberry, cranberry leaf and a touch of tomato vine, which after ten minutes turns into black truffle (typical trait in Pomerol). There is good vigor here for a 20-year-old Pomerol. The palate is medium-bodied and here you could argue that it is more advanced than the aromatics. Yes, ...Read More »

Now at 20 years, it has evolved into an absolutely stunning Saint Julien, clearly one of the best wines from the estate this decade. The bouquet is beautifully defined with intense black cherries, cedar, mint and a touch of oyster shell that seems to gain intensity in the glass. The palate is seamless from start to finish, extraordinarily pure, the 70% new oak totally assimilated of course, impressive weight and power allied with genuine finesse and tension towards the silky smooth finish.

Notes of crushed rocks, honeysuckle, lemon oil, orange marmalade, and white pear provide a stunning aromatic display as well as palate impression. Great acidity and huge flavor intensity backed up by vibrant acidity make this an exquisite Champagne. It should drink well for 20-25 years, possibly longer. Readers should remember that the 1971 Dom Perignon Rose is still drinking exquisitely. I recently had the 1969 and 1970 Dom Perignons (from magnum), and both were drinking brilliantly.

94 points Robert Parker: "This wine (15.9% alcohol) emerges from a head-pruned vineyard near Calistoga planted in 1933. It offers up smoky, roasted herb, prune, blackberry and raspberry scents with a touch of caramel. In the mouth, it is a substantial, full-bodied, super-concentrated, layered Zinfandel with beautifully integrated acidity, alcohol, and tannin. Already stunning, it promises to last for 7-8 years."

1996 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 93ST, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses a black/blue/purple color, and a texture of unctuosity and thickness. Greatness is suggested by a wonderfully sweet mid-section, gorgeous purity, and this humongous wine's overall symmetry. It also possesses sumptuous layers of concentration, remarkably sweet tannin, low acidity, and a 40+ second finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2040. (RP)" (01/2000)

1996 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1996 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (90WS). Wine Spectator: "Attractive creamy, toasty oak up-front, with supple currant and black cherry folding in beneath. Though it remains complex on the finish, it comes up shy in depth and added dimensions compared with previous vintages. Grapes are from the sources normally used for the Special Selection, which was not made in '96." (01/2000)

1996 Turley "Black Sears" Howell Mountain Zinfandel

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This deep ruby/purple-colored wine (planted high on Howell Mountain) reveals a sweet nose of black raspberries, truffles, smoke, and spice. This full-bodied wine is rich in glycerin and extract, with beautifully integrated alcohol (about 15%). (RP)" (07/1998) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Marked by distinctive spice, mint and pepper flavors built around a core of plum and blackberry. Finishes with a long, lingering aftertaste and remarkably plush, polished tannins. (JL) " (07/1998)

1996 Domaine René Engel Clos Vougeot Grand Cru
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Domaine René Engel Clos Vougeot Grand Cru ((90-93RP), 91BH, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This medium-to-dark ruby-colored wine was outstanding. Profound aromas of deeply ripe red cherries, blueberries, and blackberries steeped in hoisin sauce are followed by a medium-to-full-bodied, beautifully ripened, and silky-textured core of black fruits, beef blood, porcini mushrooms, and hints of earth. This wine's outstanding finish reveals loads of supple tannins complemented by blackberry flavors... Philippe Engel, the fun-loving and highly-talented director of this estate, crafted superb 1996s, but what else is new? This estate can be consistently depended upon to produce first-rate wine.

1996 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe
Bid on this bottle of 1996 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (98DC, 94RP, 94ST). Decanter: "This has to be one of the wines of the vintage. More deft and cedary than the bigger boned 1986 vintage (also tasted), this is light delicate and elegant. Again, ink and spice on the nose, with stunning cedar and blackcurrant fruit with a touch of undergrowth, graphite and cigar box. Beautifully fresh with sublime melting tannins. (JS)" (11/2015)

1996 Dunn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Dunn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94RP, 91ST, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque blue/purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa boasts an exceptional nose of creme de cassis, minerals, and spice. It takes at least a decade for wines such as this to begin to reveal more identity and vintage character. The cassis/blackberry liqueur-like fruit are present, as are mouth-searing levels of tannin and impressive extract. This blockbuster should be at its peak between 2010-2040. (RP)" (01/2000)

1996 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94ST, 92RP, 91WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Explosive, somewhat feral, highly aromatic nose of cassis, roast coffee, game, smoky oak and chocolate; shows a very strong torrefaction aspect. Lush, rich and deep; has a pliancy and degree of early personality I find in only the very best young California cabernets. Subtle notes of chocolate and tobacco contribute to the wine appeal. Finishes fairly tannic but very long. Distinctly more layered than the '95. (ST)" (11/1999)
