1984 Caol Ila 34 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
1984 Caol Ila 34 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

No distillery is more representative of the state of the Scotch industry than this bewitching peater on the northern coast of Islay. The excellent shoreside stills have dutifully cranked out unbelievably delicious peated whisky since 1846, but it wasn't until the malt floors were closed and the distillery began buying barley from the Port Ellen maltings that the current house style truly solidified. Caol Ila is known for their 12 Year Old in the US, but a huge majority of the spirit gets blended into the Johnnie Walker line. While the line has become sli ...Read More »

Suntory "Hibiki Japanese Harmony" Japanese Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Suntory "Hibiki Japanese Harmony" Japanese Whisky (750ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The newest blended whisky offering from Hibiki is burnished gold in the glass and has a bold aroma that mixes vanilla, fresh pear and a hint of smoke. The smokiness comes forward at the first sip, wrapping around a core of oak and vanilla custard and finishing long, with a mouthwatering bitter chocolate note. *Best of 2016* (KN)" (03/2016) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "Poised and complex, with typically lifted fruitiness: strawberry ice cream, pineapple, peach, balanced by delicate oak, bamboo shoot-like delicacy, then lemon. ...Read More »

1965 Carsebridge 52 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Closed in 1983, the once prolific stocks of Carsebridge are running low. At one time the large grain distillery in the town of Alloa was one of Scotland's biggest. When the whiskey industry fell on hard times due to massive oversupply, Carsebridge was an early victim and eventually was completely demolished in 1992. Diageo, the outgrowth of DCL, did retain the cooperage for some years, but even that was closed in 2011. It's not everyday that we get to the see the whiskies of yore and have access to them at such reasonable prices. Distilled in 1965 this b ...Read More »

97 points Whisky Advocate: "Magnificently powerful and intense. Caramels, dried peats, elegant cigar smoke, seeds scraped from vanilla beans, brand new pencils, peppercorn, coriander seeds, and star anise make for a deeply satisfying nosing experience. Silky caramels, bountiful fruits of ripe peach, stewed apple, orange pith, and pervasive smoke with elements of burnt tobacco. An abiding finish of smoke, dry spices, and banoffee pie sweetness.

1996 Bowmore 22 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Independent casks of Bowmore are the best. Flat out, there is no other distillery's whisky that offers so much more in single casks than in the modern distillery bottlings. If you have only tasted Bowmore's offical 12, 15, and 18 year old bottlings, while they're perfectly tasty, you owe it to yourself to indulge in the hedonistic magic of pure, unadulterated, Bowmore. While the Morrison era of the distillery beginning in the 1960's is known for some of the most legendary whiskies in history, the glory hasn't come to an end. The purity, intensity, and wi ...Read More »

The Macallan's benchmark excellence is nowhere more evident than in the 18 year old, which is matured for a minimum of 18 years in seasoned sherry casks. Classic Macallan, with aromas and flavors of dried apricots and figs, spice, chocolate and orange zest. Made exclusively in hand-picked sherry oak casks from Jerez, Spain. As alway, the Macallan is bottled with it's natural color. This is the new package but the same old Mac 18!

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 yo ...Read More »

1995 Blair Athol 23 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The exceptional Blair Athol Distillery sits just outside the picturesque town of Pitlochry at the base of the great Cairngorm Mountains. This small stone distillery has provided K&L with several of our most renowned single barrels, namely a few old refill casks from Signatory, which were dark refill sherry butts. This barrel showing up just a few years after those exquisite examples of this low key distillery further proves that sherry and Blair Athol play in perfect harmony. Famous in the U.K. as the home of well regarded Bell's Blend, it has no real no ...Read More »

1980 The Rare Armagnac Collection "Mars" (Domaine de Pouchegu) 38 Year Old K&L Exclusive Vintage Armagnac (750ml)

The Rare Armagnac Collection is a new small-scale bottler seeking to unearth rare and unique Armagnacs from small estates across the region that would otherwise not be available. We're extremely lucky to have stumbled upon them and this first parcel that they acquired from the famous estate in the best part of the Ténarèze. We first visited Domaine Pouchegu in 2013.

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Soy sauce, olive brine, peat, honey, oloroso Sherry, brewer’s yeast, bread dough, barley malt and cigar smoke in the bouquet. The flavor that magically includes the innate intense peatiness of Islay malts and the masterly employment of oak barrels phase defines “classy Islay.” Concludes sweetly, without sacrificing the tangy, astringent peatiness that is inherent. Gorgeous. *Best Buy* " (06/2006) 94 points Whisky Advocate: "An old classic, but how do the newest bottlings fare? Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture. Deep peat ...Read More »

1995 Springbank 22 Year Old "Hunter Laing Old & Rare" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

There's no question that Springbank is my favorite distillery. There are so many reason's why I love Springbank, but the most important one is the most obvious - it tastes amazing. Now qualify that with the fact that the Springbank distillery is literally the only distillery making authentic single malt the way they would have 100 years ago. Modern Scotch distillers want you to believe that the changes they've made over the last 50 years are designed to make their distilleries better, which is 100% true if you own the distillery.

1996 Ardmore 21 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Usually when we're offered old peated malt, it comes with some expected sticker shock. We've had great opportunities in previously offering some older peated stocks, in particular from Old Particular via the Bowmore Distillery. And while those whiskies are relatively affordable compared to other Islays on the market, they are by no means overtly undervalued. They're fairly priced, but still a stark premium above a regular Highlander. Right now, if we want to buy 12 year old Laphroaig in a private barrel we're paying upwards of £100 a bottle before import ...Read More »

1995 Craigellachie 22 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

We've been absolutely obsessed with Craigellachie this season. Few distillers offer as much value as this understated and underappreciated distillery. Situated just across the River Spey from the region's most famous sherried single malt, Craigellachie has been dutifully chugging away without much fanfare for more than a century. If you pull off the A95 on the way to Dufftown, just moments before the turn off for the Highlander Inn, you'll pass right by the big signs for John Dewar & Sons.

2006 Craigellachie 12 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Every year the biggest struggle we have when selecting casks isn't necessarily finding ultra-rare casks. If we're willing to pay for them, the diamonds are there. What's much more difficult to find are the affordable sherried malts from good distilleries. Last year we smashed things up with an absolutely stellar Aultmore. This year we've got a few replacements, one of them being this incredible cask of Craigellachie. While it doesn't have the inky, nearly bitter extraction that the Aultmore had, there might not be a better sherried whisky available for t ...Read More »

Part of Diageo's line of eight single malt whiskies to commemorate the eighth and final season of HBO's hit television series Game of Thrones that is based on the novel of the same name, and the A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels, by George R.R. Martin. House Stark is located in the northern part of Westeros, and is known for its cold temperatures. Dalwhinnie is one of the highest-altitude distilleries in Scotland and resembles Winterfell in its remote and frigid location.

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 ...Read More »

Whistle Pig 14 Year Old The Boss Hog 5th Edition "The Spirit of Mauve" Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml - 1 bottle limit, ships as 1.5L)

The makers of this 100% Rye whiskey put it simply: "The name says it all. This is our biggest, most profound whiskey for the Boss Hog in all of us." The fifth release of the Boss Hog whiskey is named in honor of the company's celebrity pig Mauve. The oinker had an "undying" fondness and appetite for apples so the whiskey aged in Calvados casks for 13 years and delivers "a unique blend of sweet and spiced flavors with a fine balance between American power and French sophistication."

After a rocky history of on again off again production, Glenturret, one of Scotland's smallest distilleries, settled into the portfolio of The Edrington Group - owner's of The Macallan and Highland Park, among others. With this change in ownership so too came a change in the destiny of Glenturret as a single malt. In 2002 Edrington transformed the distillery into The Famous Grouse Experience.

1982 Cambus 35 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Cambus distillery is easily one of the best grains out there. The large facility just to the north of the River Forth has been converted to a cooperage and connects to Diageo's the massive Blackgrange warehousing facility. That's why it's so tragic that Diageo mothballed the distillery in 1993. Its right around 30 years of age that Cambus begins to take on a complexity that made the great old blends (like Johnnie Blue) so well loved across the world. This is absolutely decadent stuff.

We love it when our friends at Hunter Laing bring us young peaters to try. We've done several of these casks of Caol Ila in the past, but I don't think we've ever come across one as absolutely perfect as this little monster. Now some people will notice the description is quiet unusual, a Sherry Finished Butt. We usually expect these young peaters to get filled in to old hoggies and often stay there until we come across them 5-6 years later.

1998 Tamdhu 20 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single First Fill Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The excellent Tamdhu distillery is one we've worked with previously, but the spirit itself doesn't make it to the open market too often. The distillery, near the village of Knockando, has wide onion-shaped stills. Couple that with classic wooden washbacks and you've got one of the most reliable malts on the market. Part of why we don't see more of this excellent spirit on the open market is that the blenders do value the quality and consistency so highly.

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 negociants. They offered those estates a premium to retain the stocks for bottling as single casks at full strength.

The exceptional Linkwood distillery is another one of the grand old Diageo malts that you wonder why they haven't bothered to make a big deal of. Until you dive deeper into how and why the distillery is so important for making them money on the globally viable blended whisky market.

At that time a renowned gin drinker, Collins's taste for the spirit was unknown until renovation work at the country guesthouse led to the discovery of a weighty old wooden box containing a bottle and a letter.

The Ardbeg distillery has become the darling of the peated whisky world over the last two decade. Things seemed bleak for the distillery in the 1980s.

The unusual Domaine Le Parre is the first producer in Tenarèze to be uncovered by the crew at L'Encantada. This is a beautiful little estate situated on a plateau, which boasts boulbène soils and was planted to mostly Baco with a small percentage of Ugni Blanc. The domaine stopped cultivating vines in 1995 and was famous for having a giant barrel fashioned from an old train car.

The Rare Armagnac Collection is a new small scale bottler seeking to unearth rare and unique armagnacs from small estates across the region that would otherwise not be available. We're extremely lucky to have stumbled upon them and this first parcel that they acquired from the famous estate in the best part of the Ténarèze. We first visited Domaine Pouchegu in 2013. There Pierre Laporte was matter of fact about what made his Armagnacs so good. Lots of care in the vines, good amount of sable fauve in the soils, highering the best distiller and a commitmen ...Read More »

Part of Diageo's line of eight single malt whiskies to commemorate the eighth and final season of HBO's hit television series Game of Thrones that is based on the novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R.R.

Oban 14 Year Old West Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Oban 14 Year Old West Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Look for pleasant sweetness and spice up front, as the nose offers a complex mix of oak, maple sugar, fresh apple, clove, black pepper and cinnamon. The flavors dry to a spicy midpalate before exiting on a long, concentrated maple-like note. (KN)" (12/2015) Whisky Advocate: "A much-beloved malt in the U.S. Some say it’s because it is easy to pronounce (though having said that, remember it’s ‘OH-bin’ and not ‘O’Bahn’). I’d prefer to think its popularity is because there is something about the fresh cleanliness of the nose, it ...Read More »

Westland K&L Exclusive "#2479" Single PX Sherry Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Westland K&L Exclusive "#2479" Single PX Sherry Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

The exceptional Westland distillery is easily considered one of the United States top Single Malt distilleries. That's something that's hard to believe considering they only opened their doors in 2010 just 8 short years ago. But what Westland did right was commit. They committed to making the very best American Single Malt that they possibly could. They took what Scotland had perfected centuries earlier and instead of upending the tradition like so many craft distillers, they improved and adapted it to make this uniquely Scottish whisky distinctly Pacifi ...Read More »

Ardbeg "Uigeadail" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $73)

95 points Whisky Advocate: "The marriage works exceptionally well, with the younger whiskies providing the classic Ardbeg intensity many of us have come to expect, while the older whiskies contribute depth, maturity, and complexity. And bottling the whisky at cask-strength without chill-filtration ensures that none of the flavors are stripped out. This is an incredibly complex Islay whisky, with its bonfire smoke, brine, and peppered olive notes balanced by a taming sweetness of vanilla, marshmallow, and toffee. Interwoven notes of candied fruit and suga ...Read More »

2009 Caol Ila 8 Year Old "Signatory" Single Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

We've made it a point this year to buy as much young Caol Ila as possible! Not only is the distillery cranking out some of the finest peated malt anywhere on Islay, but it's taste extremely delicious even at a very young age. When Signatory showed us this exceptional cask, we knew it would be a struggle to get it to the states at a price that makes sense. Luckily, the new local representation for the brand are old friends and they were able to work out a deal to bring this exceptional cask into stock at a relatively reasonable rate. Of course these Signa ...Read More »

Little Book 2018 Release "Batch #2 - Noe Simple Task" Blended Straight Whiskey (750ml)

Distiller's notes: "The road to Noe Simple Task started when I visited our Canadian distilleries in early 2017. I enjoy travelling to different places in the world to see how they distill their spirits. There, I was able to taste some great Canadian whisky straight out of the barrel. I was really drawn to the fruit and floral notes they achieve. I wanted to know more. Later in the year I went back for a deeper dive to learn all about their process. And taste some more great whisky. This was a step outside my comfort zone. The rules and laws for making wh ...Read More »

1994 Miltonduff 24 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

The strikingly underappreciated Miltonduff distillery is unique in so many ways. Built in on the site of an old mill for the Pluscarden Abbey the distillery's old stone buildings hide one of the Speysides most delicious malts. Originally a Priory founded by King Alexander II in 1230, the area became renowned for illicit distillation. Originally licensed in 1824, the name, Milton, was taken from an illicit still that operated on the property. The Duff family owned the lands surrounding the abbey hence the name Miltonduff. The malt became an important comp ...Read More »

Another stupendous cask from our friends in Lawrenceburg. The very special whiskies coming out of Four roses today are some of Kentucky's very best. They do allot of things the old way, while their competition has chosen to move forward with modern accoutrement, Four Roses continues to insist on old practices that set the product apart from the pack. First there is the proper souring step, yeast cultivated each week there by offering depth of character unsurpassed by other modern distillers. Cypress fermenters, slow low distillation, and a lower than sta ...Read More »

Tequila Tapatio "Excelencia" Extra Anejo Tequila (1L)

The oldest expression from Carlos Camarena's Tapatio brand is finally available stateside. Rich and butterscotchy and with hints of black pepper and citrus. Distilled exclusively from perfectly matured agave at the famous La Altena distillery in Arandas. When they tell you how this stuff was made it just boggles the mind. Distilled in 2000, this is the official SECOND batch of Excelencia. It was filled into the same barrels as the first directly after they were dumped and aged for 4 years before being transferred into glass containers. There it has mello ...Read More »

Daniel Bouju "K&L Exclusive" Cognac Fines Saveurs (750ml) Top Pick!
Daniel Bouju "K&L Exclusive" Cognac Fines Saveurs (750ml)

Francois Bouju is the man running the show these days at Bouju Cognac. He's incredibly nice, has an encyclopedic knowledge of distillation, taught us a great deal about the region and its spirits, and far exceeded the lofty expectations we had of him going in to our appointment. His vines are planted in rich limestone soils, which helps to preserve acidity in the fruit, and he is a stickler for detail. The reason the Grand Champagne region makes what is considered the best Cognac is because the soil creates grapes that are fully ripe with high acidity le ...Read More »

What started as a private brand for an exclusive resort in Los Cabos has turned into K&L's best selling tequila of the last two years. Codigo has recently expanded the options available for single barrel bottling and we had to jump on an exclusive cask of their Rosa tequila. Codigo works with some of the very top properties in Napa to secure top notch wine barrels for aging their precious tequila. The majority of these barrels receive a light charring before being filled with agave spirit, but for their Rosa Codigo leaves the barrels uncharred and lets t ...Read More »

2008 Clynelish 10 Year Old Signatory 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Goddamn I love Clynelish. I kind of just want to say the word over and over. Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! It makes even better if you say it with me. The distillery was built in 1967 on the same site as the original of the same name. Due to malt shortages on Islay, the first distillery was fired back up in 1969 and produced some heavily peated malt that's now legendary, but the new distillery developed its own character and continues to produce some of the very finest malt Scotland has to offer. There's something about this weird little place o ...Read More »

Glengoyne 21 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $169)

Whisky Advocate: "While younger Glengoyne whiskies are enjoyable but often fairly straight-forward in flavor, the older expressions develop nicely in depth. Regardless of age, there’s always a creamy maltiness as the foundation of the whisky. For this expression, notes of honey, cookie dough, dry spice notes (vanilla, cinnamon) and soft fruit (citrus, apple) round out the palate. This whisky is clean, polished, and very drinkable. A new addition to the Glengoyne line, and very welcome. (JH, Spring 2005)" K&L Notes: The Glengoyne 21 is one of the biggest ...Read More »
