2005 Laphroaig 13 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Cask Strength Single Sherry Butt Islay Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Pre-Arrival)

The magical distillery on the south shore of Islay, like all south shore distillers, is quite unlike any other. But Laphroaig has a certain place in the hearts of the hardest core peat lovers. They're the last distiller down there to malt a portion of their barley on site. Their complex system of tiny stills create the most peculiar and enticing peated spirit in the world. The quality and consistency of their casks is second to none. But over the last decade, what was once a staple in the independent bottling repertoire has completely disappeared. Laphro ...

It's gently smoky and shows some dried cherry fruits too – a gastronomic dream! The palate's smoothly cut with creamy red-cherry-fruit flavors and hints of pink grapefruit.

2005 Hexamer Meddersheimer Altenberg Riesling Spatlese Trocken

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted in January 2018, the 2005 Nahe Riesling Spätlese Trocken Meddersheimer Altenberg has a clear and matured bouquet, with ripe stone fruit and rather green walnut aromas that represent the richness of the 2005 vintage. The attack on the palate is quite fresh and elegant, and the medium to full-bodied wine has good concentration but a somewhat bitter and astringent finish. Its nice salinity and caramel touch make it a good choice for rich fish dishes like codfish. (SR)" (02/2018)

2005 Balblair 13 Year Old "K&L Exclusive" Cask No. 224 Cask Strength Single Cask Highland Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (ships as 1.5L)

The Balblair distillery is still one of the truly unsung heroes of the Highlands. Official record sets the founding in 1790, but illicit distillation was ubiquitous in these far-flung parts of the Highlands long before that. The little distillery just a stone's throw from Glenmorangie, offers some of the prettiest malt in Scotland. The water source, Allt Dearg, has slight peaty character which although not overtly detectable in the whisky serves to add complexity to the already layered malt coming from these small stills in Edderton.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 109 Gran Reserva is old vine, head-pruned Xarello with 10% Chardonnay kept in bottle with the lees for no less than 109 months until it is released, but the 'sur lie' can be much longer—in fact, until you decide to pull the cork, as the bottles are sold without being disgorged. It's therefore cloudy and full of lees (depending on how much you shake the bottle!), which help prevent oxidation in the wine and continue evolving in the bottle.
