2005 Caol Ila Cask Strength Gordon & MacPhail Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Previously $100)

This is aged in 100% first fill bourbon barrels. The result is a racy, powerful, in-your-face Islay malt. This is an absolute treat for anyone who loves Islay whisky in the most classic sense. Dense aromas of dried cured ham, sweet oily lemon peel and thick wild honey. Subtle tropical aromatics persist behind the savory citrus nose, coconut, clean smoke and diesel engine.

2005 Guiraud, Sauternes (Elsewhere $75)

97 points James Suckling: "This appears to be the synthesis of the fabulous 2001 and 2003. It shows wonderful aromas of botrytis spice, honey and citrus rind. Lots of fruit with a tropical fruit undertone of mango and papaya on the palate. Intense finish. Too excellent not to drink. " (07/2013) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers lots of botrytis spice, with lemon tart and cooked apple.

2005 Bodegas Puelles Gran Reserva Rioja

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Gran Reserva can also do with some decanting in advance as it has some reductive aromas when first poured after opening. After that it has some notes of hung game, spices, beef blood, iron, tea leaves and peat showing mostly as tertiary aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, with a fine thread of acidity going through its spine that is laced with fine tannins. It is quite easy to drink and quite a good price for a Gran Reserva.

2005 Foursquare Rum Distillery 12 Year Old "Ex-Bourbon Cask" Exceptional Cask Selection Mark VI Single Blended Barbados Rum (750ml)

Here is another ridiculous cask strength rum from the wonderful Foursquare Rum Distillery in Barbados. This is drawn from 12 year old rum aged in ex-bourbon and bottled at full cask strength of 118 proof. The rum is a blend of two distillates, one from the pot stills and a lighter one from the column. The resulting spirit is the perfect balance between the depth and texture of the heavy rums and the freshness and vibrancy of the column. Unadulterated, unapologetic, and unparalleled, the Foursquare Rum Distillery and its opinionated owner Richard Seale ha ...Read More »

2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Gran Reserva Rioja (1.5L)

93 points Wine & Spirits: "The generous umami flavors of this wine bring to mind roast pigeon stuffed with mushrooms—a meaty, rich, succulent flavor that carries a touch of earthy sweetness. The meaty character seems to emanate out of the tannins, which fill out the wine’s supple texture and last, along with the rose-scented fruit. A savory red, to serve with roast game."

2005 d'Armailhac, Pauillac

92 points Decanter: "This is almost the perfect time to drink this wine, although it still needs decanting to bring out the plush strokes of fruit. Aromatically, it majors on cassis, liquorice, cedar and patisserie. This is a lovely wine, a classic Pauillac that is not overly intense and retains a sense of juiciness. Of the three Pauillac estates tasted here, this 2005 is the one to open today.

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "After tasting the 2005 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée two separate times from varying casks and barrels at the domaine, this was my first taste from bottle and I certainly wasn't disappointed. Surprisingly, this doesn't possess the same meaty and burly Pegau aromas but showed a pure, clean and precise character. Bright raspberry, cherry and mineral aromas shows up at first but with air, more earthy, peppery and tar laced aromas show up.

2005 Bruichladdich Peated (Port Charlotte) 12 Year Old "Alexander Murray" Cask Strength Small Batch Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

The exciting new whiskies coming from Alexander Murray are proof that if you work hard enough, great single malt whisky deals are still out there. We can't buy cask strength Bruichladdich for any price on the open market right now and if you do find something it will almost definitely from the old regime and wildly expensive. When we see casks pop up from the period after the reopening in 2001, they're almost always privately owned by people who were smart enough to grab a cask when they were sale for £700 a pop.

2005 Laphroaig 12 Year Old "Alexander Murray" Cask Strength Small Batch Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Alexander Murray has been making some waves recently. They've used their buying power through large volume purchases for many of the country's largest chain retailers to secure stocks of some very special and rare distilleries. While many of my suppliers are unable to offer me cask strength Laphroaig of any age for less than £100+ a bottle, Alexander Murray is putting small batch cask strength malt from Islay's most flavorful distiller into the bottle for a bargin.

Medium to full body, with ultra-fine tannins that feel like fine silk. The finish goes on for minutes. It floats across the palate.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a large 200-acre vineyard, this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a high plateau near the village of Saint-Loubès. A consistently over-achieving wine that is far superior to its humble appellation (Bordeaux Supérieur), the 2005 may be one of the all-time great Reignacs. Inky purple, almost black to the rim, the wine looks like a two-year-old rather than one that’s already hit a decade. Proprietors Yves and Stephanie Vatelot have turned out a superlative effort in this vintage that is ...Read More »

Superb purity, full body, good acidity, and moderate tannin suggest this fleshy, substantial St.-Emilion will be drinkable in 3-4 years, and last for 15 or more."

2005 Margaux, Margaux Top Pick!
2005 Margaux, Margaux

100 points James Suckling: "The nose on this seems more concentrated than the 2000, and the purity of fruit is stunning, with blueberries, raspberries, fresh flowers, and hints of licorice. This is perfect and complete. Full bodied, with notes of forest berries and wild raspberries, this is thick and velvety with perfectly polished tannins. You can really feel the density on this, more than the tannic structure. This is a sleeping beauty that will be utterly captivating when it awakes. Don't touch this until after 2015.

2005 Carbonnieux Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beautiful aromas of white peaches, crushed rocks, candle wax, and lemon rind along with a touch of quince emerge from this medium-bodied, crisp, flavorful effort.
