2008 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 Cristal is a perfect wine, and Champagne simple does not get any better. This incredible wine offers a beautiful perfume of clean, crisp fruits, layers of complexity in its toasted spice and white flowers, and an utterly seamless, yet powerful style on the palate. This is a rich, decadent expression of Cristal yet it’s still crystalline and elegant, with no sensation of weight, and it just glides over the palate. Haut Couture at its finest and this majestic, profound, legendary Cristal can be drunk anytime over the comin ...

2008 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 Dom Pérignon is the first time the estate has released a wine out of order (the 2009 was released before the 2008) but the estate loved the wine so much they felt it warranted additional aging. This is a rich, powerful wine that still shows incredible purity and elegance, with a stacked, concentrated feel on the palate. It’s rare to find such a mix of ripe, pure, concentrated fruit paired with this level of purity, focus, and precision. This is a legendary Dom that surpasses all the great vintages of Dom I have experience ...

2008 Fallet-Dart Vintage Brut Champagne Jeroboam (3L)

Four bottles in one! Perfect for a party. The blend for the vintage 2008 is 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir with aging of 84 months at the minimum. It is certainly one of the most exciting big bottles of vintage Champagne in the store, from a vintage that many in the region consider the best in a generation. -Gary Westby

2008 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

It’s the fine tannins that give it such class, surrounding the fruit, promising long aging. This is a classic for Léoville-Barton. *Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2011* (RV)" (04/2011) 94 points James Suckling: "This was always one of the wines of the vintage with currant, cassis and chocolate aromas and flavors.

2008 Tullibardine 10 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Tullibardine is a small distillery in the village of Blackford, gateway to the Highlands. Its history goes back to the 15th century as a brewery of fine beers. In fact, its first royal charter for beer was established in 1503. Its modern history as a distillery is quite a bit younger, but no less well-received. Founded as a distillery in 1949 by architect William Deelme-Evans, the distillery offers an intimate visiting experience. While the property has changed hands a number of times over the years, it has come to be a family-owned company. The Picard f ...

2008 Mortlach 10 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Mortlach distillery is something of an enigma. Founded in 1823, their famous 2.81 times distillation technique (touted as the reason for the meaty robust flavor) was developed at the turn of the century. The vast majority (circa 95%+) of production is destined for the Johnnie Walker Blenders, where it balances the sweet highland malts and smoky Islays perfectly. One of the few Diageo single malts we've yet to actually visit, the distillery has become an icon for those in the know. For others it's a mouthful - Mort LATCH? No no, Mort LOCK! But there's ...

2008 Mica Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

A second wine from the excellent Buccella winemaking team.The Mica (pronounced mee-kuh) Cabernet is a blend of Cab, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cab Franc lots that don't make it into Buccella's final blend, but that are too good to sell of in bulk. Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak, this is a powerful wine, with lots of spice, black cherry, currant and blackberry fruit, and a velvety mouthfeel. At about half the price of Buccella's Cab, this is a great introduction to the winery's style,

This crazy little Tobermory is exactly what I love about the strange little distillery on the Isle of Mull. It was filled into a used sherry butt in 2008. This distillery sometimes gets a bad rap, in particular because the independently bottled stuff is usually filled into 4th- and 5th-fill cask.
