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 Ardmore 21 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
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 Tobermory 22 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Sherry Butt 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 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 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 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac Top Pick!
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 »

Dense, sweet and wonderfully rich; a lovely combination of palate-caressing chocolatey fruit and firm underlying structure. Finishes with excellent grip and great palate-saturating sweetness. Another outstanding 1996 Medoc wine in the making.

1996 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 1996 Haut Bailly is a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc. 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 »

Fat with sweet fruit; lush and voluminous for the vintage. Finishes with big but very even tannins that spread out on the palate. (ST)" (05/1999) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Licorice, blackberry, mineral and cedar on the nose. Full-bodied, chewy texture, with lots of tannins, but finishes a little short and dry.

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 Ledaig 19 year old "Sherry Cask Finish" Isle Of Mull Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Another well aged Sherry finished peated from the Tobermory distillery. These guys have really turned up the quality in the last several years, taking good aged stock and filling them into ultra high-end Sherry barrels to give them that extra little something. For those wanting that peat and Sherry combo there's very little out there in the same range, particularly if you don't want the sappy sweetness added by PX (I'm thinking Lagavulin DE). Yet the Ledaig has a ton of the same dark nuttiness that you'd expect from a fine Oloroso cask and just the right ...Read More »

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.

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-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.

1996 Lafon-Rochet, St-Estèphe

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the sleepers of the 1996 vintage, Lafon-Rochet has turned out an atypically powerful, rich, and concentrated wine bursting with black currant fruit. 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. This wine remains one of the finest values from the luxury-priced 1996 vintage, and is well-worth purchasing by readers who are willing to invest 5-6 years of patience; it should keep for tw ...Read More »

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 »

The wine offers up a deep, pure and breathtaking bouquet of cassis, black cherries, grilled meats, a wonderfully complex potpourri of fresh herb tones that even show an exotic touch of mint, a wonderfully pure and classic expression of Chambertin soil and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and flawlessly balanced, with a great core of fruit, superb transparency, moderate tannins and absolutely perfect focus and balance on the very, very long and refined finish.

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.

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)

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis "Les Clos" Grand Cru ((94-96RP), 96ST, 95WS, 94BH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revealing powerful and expansive aromas of liquid minerals, spices, and cloves, the massive, oily, and full-bodied Chablis Les Clos is a he-man of a wine. Its complex and layered core is tightly packed with minerals, juniper berries, citrus fruit and apples. This extraordinary Chablis offers superb definition and delineation as well as an exemplary finish. As it finishes its elevage in Dauvissat's cellar I would not be surprised if this elegant monster becomes even better than when I tasted it in November, 1997. (PR)" (02/1998)

1996 Alain Hudelot-Noëllat Clos Vougeot Grand Cru
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 Alain Hudelot-Noëllat Clos Vougeot Grand Cru (93JG). John Gilman: "I am a very big fan of the Clos Vougeot at Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat, which I find consistently to be one of the best examples in the Côte d’Or. The 1996 is a lovely example of the vintage that hails from the plus and buffered camp, with a lovely core of pure fruit fully carrying the structure of the vintage. The bouquet is deep, complex and quite sappy in its blend of plums, black cherries, woodsmoke, a touch of venison, coffee, a great base of soil and a stylish framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and impressively pure on the attack, with a fine core, ripe tannins and a long, focused and tangy finish. This is certainly approachable today, but in terms of complexity, it is still a tad on the primary side and a few more years of bottle age should be rewarded with even greater aromatic and flavor complexity. A lovely 1996. (Drink between 2016-2050)" (9/2011)

1996 Domaine Faiveley Corton Grand Cru "Clos des Cortons Faiveley"
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Domaine Faiveley Corton Grand Cru "Clos des Cortons Faiveley" (94ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby color. Multidimensional aromas of violet, coffee, dried rose, clove, rare steak and seductive oak. Huge and tactile; really implodes in the mouth today. Extremely deep and lush, with the sheer sweetness to buffer its considerable acids and tannins. Oaky. Finishes extremely long, with very fine, tooth-coating tannins. With aeration, some of the baby fat melted away, and the wine's powerful structure was manifest. Headspinning, old-style Burgundy, and very impressive. One to buy and cellar. (ST)" (03/1999)
