1997 Hector Macbeth (Glenfiddich) 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

There's just no way to describe the feeling of coming across a splendid old cask of Wardhead (trade name for teaspooned Glenfiddich) like this one. You'd expect with the incredible value that these casks offer we'd see more of this type of whisky on the market, but I think suppliers are scared to work with something labelled as a blended malt whisky even when they know it's actually only blended on paper. This magical cask bottled as "Hector Macbeth" was actually distilled at the famous Glenfiddich distillery in Spring of 1997. It was filled into a used ...

1997 Domaine René Leclerc Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru "Combe Aux Moines"

91-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The medium to dark ruby-colored, the 1997 Gevrey-Chambertin Combe aux Moines reveals spiced corn and candied cherry aromas. On the palate, this waxy, super-rich, powerful, and dense wine is replete with black berries, cherries, as well as licorice-like tones. Well-crafted and admirably long. (PR)" (10/1999)

1997 L'Encantada 20 Year Old "Bellair #36" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Previously $100)

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 négociants. They offered those estates a premium to retain the stocks for bottling as single casks at full strength. Many of these estates had never bottled Armagnac nor had any interested in marketing their precious eau-de-vie. Our friends at L'Encantada realized that the soul of Armagnac exists i ...

1997 Macduff 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The lovely Macduff Distillery - sold locally under the Glen Deveron label - is one of those tragic cases of great malt lost behind the blends. The owners don't spend much time making a fuss of the little distillery, which was built in 1958. Not much of the whisky is sold as malt and mostly it's marketed in France. The distillery located in Banffshire was a crucial element in the popular William Lawson Blend, but recently the owners have revitalized the Glen Deveron brand with a posh new look and some expensive age stated offerings. Despite the great pack ...

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. Benrinnes is one of these unknown Dia ...

1997 Fattoria Paradiso "Saxa Calida" Toscana

The 1997 vintage is one of the most sought after in recent memory for the 'Super Tuscan' category. This winery sits just to the west of the middle of Chianti Classico and has found a niche that certainly challenges their Chianti neighbors. 'Saxa Calida' is Latin for HOT ROCKS and this vineyard is covered with rocks and when the blazing Tuscan sun warms those rocks during the day they hold the heat and radiate it back once the sun goes down. This is a powerful yet supple blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of new French oak. Extraordinary ...

1997 Havens "Reserve" Carneros Merlot

The 1997 Havens Reserve Merlot comes from four vineyards: Beau Terroir, Hyde, Truchard and Falstad. Blended with 10% Cabernet Franc, Mike Havens says "this wine has the potential to stand among our best wines of the 1990's. It's black fruits are complemented by the fine textures of coffee and cocoa powder. Although waiting for some bottle age to show the forward charm of our Napa Valley Merlot, this wine has the stuffing and completeness to offer new pleasure for many years to come."

There is now a 3-5 day cold maceration, indigenous yeasts are employed during fermentation, and new oak casks are used. The excellent 1997 St.-Joseph La Sensonne (from a hillside vineyard behind the village of Mauves) is a more modern-styled wine than was produced in the past. Yields were a meager 24 hectoliters per hectare. Terrific fruit intensity consisting of blackberries and cherries is followed by a wine with licorice, flint, and sm ...

Seriously endowed with fine-grained tannins, it needs some time in the decanter to open up, but when it does the aromatic display of cassis, blackberry, spring flowers and woodsmoke is magical. On the palate this wine is undeniably massive, but its savoury tannins confer a more classical character to the wine than one finds in, say, the super-ripe 2002 or 2007 vintages at this address.
