2005 Highland Park 12 Year Old "K&L Exclusive" Refill Sherry Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2005 Highland Park 12 Year Old "K&L Exclusive" Refill Sherry Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

After years of begging and pleading, Highland Park has finally agreed to sell us a single cask. These barrels have been popping up around the country over the last year and are already becoming collectable. We were very excited to get full proof HP in ex-sherry hoggies and although it's a refill, it's still dark and full of dense oloroso character. The powerful Orkney distillate does wonders up against sherry and our barrel is no exception. It's unfortunate that this one will probably end up in collections across the world when it's so delicious, so if y ...Read More »

2005 Reignac, Bordeaux Supérieur

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 »

2005 Lascombes, Margaux Top Pick!
2005 Lascombes, Margaux

94 points Wine & Spirits: "A joyous Lascombes, this is the first vintage to hit stride since the US investment firm Colony Capital took over in 2001. It's a meaty wine draped in fragrant tannin, built for long aging. It's also an exuberant wine, in both the bright, red currant-scented fruit and the bristle of the tannin. A playfully complex flavor lasts for minutes, the wine still youthful and fresh four days after it was opened. Margaux chic."

Very spicy and earthy. St. Estephe character. Enjoy or age." (02/2011) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of currant and fresh flowers follow through to a medium-to-full body, with chewy tannins and a slightly woody finish, but the fruit comes through.

Full-bodied and extremely finely textured on the palate, lasting for minutes. A joy to drink now. Get some." (11/2015) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red.

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.

Ripe apple and peach flavors partner with a strongly mineral texture. It needs to age more in bottle, so drink from 2016. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2014) 94 points John Gilman: "The wine delivers superb refinement in its complex bouquet of apple, pain grillé, pear, a touch of hazelnut, complex soil tones and a gently smoky topnote.

Silky and suave in the mouth but with lovely vinosity to leaven the wine's deep sweetness. I love the sugar/acid snap here. Very fresh hints of licorice and exotic ginger. Nicely mouthcoating and lush on the back end, finishing with spreading, ripe tannins and a chocolatey flavor. An excellent performance. Half of these vines date back to 1911.

2005 Baron de Brane, Margaux

Decanter: "A second wine of an excellent Margaux at 12 years old in a great vintage should be on its absolute plateau right now, and while this is fairly evolved, it offers plenty of gentle soft leather and brioche pleasure. There is some sweet brambly fruit with the faintest trace of brett, but overall it's a beautiful wine to enjoy over the next few years. It's crying out for slow-braised lamb.

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Located in the north of Pauillac, between Mouton and Pontet-Canet, this 123-acre estate is also part of G.F.A. Baronne Philippine de Rothschild. The aroma balances meaty fruit and mineral scents, and while the pungent red fruit is always there, the tannins seem to increase their intensity with air. They cover the pure black cherry flavor like a powerful skin, deep and plush with an iron-knuckle punch. The tannins don't go away, but their inner velvet eventually wins out.

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A stunning, profound wine, the 2005 Les Cailloux Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Centenaire, a blend of 80% Grenache and the rest a mix of Mourvèdre and Syrah, delivers spectacular aromatics of kirsch, garrigue, roasted meats, and licorice that soar from the glass. Absurdly perfumed, complex and a touch exotic on the nose, the wine is full bodied on the palate with a seamless, thick, sexy texture, perfect balance and a blockbuster finish that highlights silky tannin and decadent fruit. Surprisingly accessible (especially for the vintage ...Read More »

2005 Clinet, Pomerol

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque ruby/purple 2005 Clinet offers incredibly fragrant aromatics, an opaque ruby/purple color, and a wonderfully sweet nose of flowers, blackberries, licorice, truffle and caramel. Full-bodied, powerful and rich, it is not as nuanced or complex as the top four or five Pomerols, but close. This is a broad, meaty, masculine, super-rich and concentrated wine, with lavish plum, blackcurrants and blackberries. Drink it five years from now, and over the following 30 or more years.

2005 Paul Autard "La Côte Ronde" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Back In Stock!
2005 Paul Autard "La Côte Ronde" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A big, dense wine, the 2005 Domaine Paul Autard Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée La Cote Ronde is loaded with smoked cherries, roasted herbs, melted licorice, spice box, and chocolate aromas and flavors. What starts out as a very modern seeming wine, with obvious oak, morphs into a quite Provencal wine with beautiful spice and hints of garrigue. Full-bodied and powerful on the palate, this has real density and depth though the middle, thick, rich fruit, and a structured finish. Still very youthful, this needs another 2-4 years of cellari ...Read More »

2005 Beaumont, Haut-Médoc (3L)

Wine Spectator: "Soft and velvety, with blackberry, mineral and light mint character on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with a caressing texture. There's lovely balance to this. (JL)" (03/2008) K&L Notes: Maybe the single best example of just how great the value side of 2005 Bordeaux really is. Phenomenal wine. K&L's Barrel Tasting notes - Toasty oak aromas and red fruit flavors. Elegant. Easy drinker. Value? 1/2 * " (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux buyer) Three stars San Francisco Chronicle in their review Red Bordeaux $50 or less: "A bright no ...Read More »

2005 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon T6" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon T6 is 100% Clone 6, came in at 14.7% alcohol, and was aged in 100% new Darnajou barrels. It reveals a different character, with notes of charcoal and espresso roast, white chocolate, new saddle leather and a meaty, dense, full-bodied mouthfeel. This is spectacular and terrific stuff. After the RBS, this is probably the most evolved of these five cuvées, although I kept going back to the CCS, which has a hauntingly perfect bouquet. (RP)" (06/2015) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Combines a ...Read More »

2005 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (1.5L) 1-pack in OWC

96 points James Suckling: "This is very dense and tight right now with firm tannins. Currants with cassis, plums and peach. Full and dense, not giving that much. Powerful and intense and structured. It needs at least another five years." (05/2013) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "There's a relaxed feel to this wine. Cazes's team can dress Lynch-Bages in the black-tie formality of a first growth, but the wine is still lovely-a touch of gaminess makes it friendly rather than ponderous. There's something ethereal about its tannins, like a chocolate truffle melt ...Read More »

2005 Alfred Gratien Brut Vintage Champagne

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Brut Millésime is a blend of 70% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier and spent 12 years in the bottle. This intensely citrus colored blend shows a deep, stunningly fresh and slightly oaky/yeasty bouquet with candied citrus aromas. Very rich and round on the palate, it has intense fruit and a touch too much sweetness for my taste (dosage: eight grams per liter). It is well-structured, fresh and mineral and will benefit from further bottle aging. Disgorged in November 2017. (SR)" (06/2018) 9 ...Read More »
