1995 Caperdonich 24 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Unchillfiltered Speyside Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Bottlings from the enigmatic Caperdonich Distillery are extremely rare. It was built in 1897 and named "Glen Grant #2," Caperdonich by J. & J. Grant in the town of Rothes. Only five short years later, the Pattison whisky crisis shuttered the gleaming new distillery. It lay dormant for 60 more years before Glenlivet rebuilt it and resumed production. The name Caperdonich, meaning "secret well," was adopted due to new regulations prohibiting multiple distilleries from sharing the same name. It was purchased again in 1977 by Seagrams, who sold it to Pernod ...

2003 Benrinnes 15 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Benrinnes has become a staple on our shelves for the last several years. This isn't simply because Benrinnes is available, but because the whiskies we taste from this lovely little facility are delicious. And while it's true that it's available relatively frequently, we're picky about which casks come home with us. Benrinnes is unique for several reasons. Firstly, between 1974 and 2007, the distillery conducted an unusual semi-triple pot distillation whereby the feints from the wash still, weaker spirits still, and low wine still are included in the low ...

1995 Allt-a-Bhainne 23 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
A workhorse distillery in Speyside, Allt-a-Bahine was originally built in 1975 to produce a light and fruity malt for Seagram's blending purposes. In 2001 the distillery was acquired by Pernod Ricard and folded into the Chivas portfolio. Mothballed for a time in the early 2000s after the sale, the distillery has been operating at full capacity since 2005 as we've seen everything about Scotch boom. Distilled in 1995 this cask comes from the era when Seagram's was operating at the top of their game as the largest beverage company in the world, shortly befo...

1997 Benriach 21 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Single Rum Barrel Finish Cask Strength Unchillfiltered Speyside Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
We once could bottle wonderful casks of Benriach distillery direct at extremely reasonable prices with no trouble. This unusual distillery has always been a favorite of ours, filled with experiments left over from their corporate past and their adventurous new owners. One of the few Speysides to still boast a malt floor, it was always exciting to see the unusual experiments that were hiding in the old warehouses at Benriach. But at some point in the last five years, the prices climbed into the stratosphere and when the distillery sold to Brown Forman, ou...

91 points Whisky Advocate: "With worm tubs and a fiendishly complex partial-triple distillation, Mortlach has adhered to an old style of making whisky — and older, richer, darker flavors. Big and bold, it is at its best in ex-sherry casks. The nose is meaty (think gravy/beef stock) with fig, raisin, and molasses. In the mouth it’s concentrated, with good grip and a savory sweetness. A cult malt. (DB, Fall 2011)" K&L Notes: The excellent new 16 Year Old bottled by the Mortlach distillery is a truly welcome expression from "The Beast of Dufftown." The 16 ...

Macallan 12 Year Old "Sherry Oak Cask" Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Look for a rich butterscotch scent and a hint of fresh apricot. On the palate, this Sherry-matured single malt layers on concentrated caramel, butterscotch and custard, finishing long and spiced on a hint of orange peel. *Top 100 Spirits 2017* (KN)" (12/2017) K&L Notes: In his book, Kindred Spirits, international whisky authority Paul Pacult describes the Macallan 12 as, "simply the best 12 year old single malt around," and we wholeheartedly agree. The continued use of finest Golden Promise barley and the insistence on sherr...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Had the Dufftown/Speyside Towiemore Distillery not closed in 1931, this is Lost Distillery's take on what the whiskey might taste like today, part of a series. This blended Scotch has a copper penny hue and an aroma that intertwines light peat smoke with baked pear and tea. The palate shows cocoa, peat smoke, cigar wrapper and tea, finishing with clove sparks in a long, warm, smoky and chocolaty finish. *Best Buy* (KN)" (12/2016) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "Built between Keith and Dufftown in 1898, but closed at the start of...

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fresh apple and pear aromas intertwine with a faint butterscotch richness. The silky palate is light, fresh and lively, opening with orchard fruit and fading to hints of violet, honey and smoke, plus white pepper and a ginger tingle. (KN)" (12/2019) K&L Notes: 97 points from Jim Murray! When one of the most influential whisky publications in the world routinely lavishes top accolades on a whisky it is hard to not take notice.

93 points Whisky Advocate: "The yin to Aberlour A’bunadh’s yang, this cask-strength single malt is matured entirely in bourbon casks rather than sherry. The result is a bracingly pure whisky with deceptive simplicity; its flavors are clean and its structure precise, but it’s far from boring. The nose recalls black-and-white cookies, vanilla-frosted yellow cake, and shortbread with caramel topping, along with honeysuckle, jasmine, and coconut cream. Mouth-coating and full, it has flavors of poached pear, malt balls, nougat, lemon curd, toasted coconut, an...

Mellow honey and smooth, nutty flavors taper off into a long fade that shows vanilla, citrus, sweet spices and a hint of cocoa.

GlenAllachie 12 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Back In Stock!
Whisky Advocate: "This expression is described by the distillers as 'the heart of our range.' Matured in virgin oak, Pedro Ximénez, and oloroso casks. Oily on the nose, with ripe banana and a hint of oak. Quite full-bodied and slick on the palate, with vanilla, honey, and almonds. Milk chocolate and lime in the medium-length finish. (GS, Winter 2018)" K&L Notes: The GlenAllachie Distillery was built in 1967 outside of Aberlour.

Mortlach 20 Year Old "Cowie's Blue Seal" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (ships like a 1.5L bottle due to shape)

Whisky Advocate: "Named in honor of the family that owned Mortlach for many years, this was matured in sherry wood, like its 16 year old sibling. Milk chocolate, nuts, and coffee on the nose, with developing meaty aromas. Soft and slightly waxy on the palate, with almonds, apricots, and allspice. Milk chocolate and spicy orange in the finish.

Macallan "Rare Cask 2019 Release Batch No 1" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Macallan's new Rare Cask uses handpicked first-fill sherry casks from the top 1% of barrels currently aging at the distillery. The result is a richer, darker, more chocolaty version of Macallan with a thicker profile and a complex palate of raisins, sultana, orange peel, and ginger. With the current market craze for first-fill sherry whisky, à la Aberlour, A'Bunadh and Glendronach, the Rare Cask represents an aggressive and more modern approach from the typically conservative Macallan. This is a bold, chewy, full-bodied single malt that showcases the dee...

As reported in The Spirits Business: "The Macallan Edition No.5 is described as a 'homage to the diversity and complexity of natural colour.'

It follows the launch of four previous expressions in the Edition range, which 'explores the unique elements' of The Macallan. … Pantone Color Institute created an exclusive colour for The Macallan Edition No.5 – an 'intricate combination' of red and blue."

91 points Whisky Advocate: "Aromas of newsprint, damp foliage, and wood spice dominate on the nose. Confident, almost fizzy sherry notes on the full palate, with sultanas, figs, and fruit spices. It becomes progressively more citric. The lengthy finish produces dark chocolate dipped in chili sauce. A sherry-soaked dram. (GS, Fall 2019)" K&L Notes: This is the fourth edition of Tamdhu's Batch Strength single malt.

The Whisky Archives independent bottler grew out of one of the internet age's most unique phenomenon. In 2007 Menno Bijmolt created an online database to catalog and document his collection.

Whisky Advocate: "A new small-batch addition to the Aberlour line-up, Casg Annamh (Gaelic for ‘rare cask’) has been matured in European and American oak oloroso sherry casks. Rich, buttery caramel aromas, grilled pineapple, and ginger. The palate is smooth, and yields spicy vanilla, tangerines, and cloves. Lots of black pepper and licorice in the relatively long finish. Less complex than the distillery’s A’bunadh. (GS, Winter 2018)" K&L Notes: The newest release from Aberlour, Casg Annamh, or "rare cask" in Gaelic, is an expression of balance that remai...

Glenfarclas is special for more than its stunning location. One of the last family distilleries in Scotland, it is owned by the Grants, who have been involved in its operations since at least 1865.

From the producer: "Being in the Laich O’Moray the distillery benefits from the regions milder climate as it is afforded protection from the Cairngorm and Monadhliath Mountains. The distilleries geographic location and also sitting in a hollow below the water table, means that the warehousing has the perfect conditions to allow for the Angels to take more of a share of our whisky than they will of others. We use ex bourbon barrels sourced from North America to mature Glen Moray and these produce a whisky with rich and spicy characteristics. These casks ...

Whisky Advocate: "The youngest of the 2018 Mortlach trio, this is named after the distillery’s famous small spirit still. Maturation has taken place in sherry and bourbon casks. Baked apricots and ginger on the nose, with black pepper, lots of milk chocolate, and an herbal note. The palate is mildly savory, with more milk chocolate, vanilla, orchard fruits, and cinnamon. Lingering chocolate ginger in the finish. (GS, winter 2018)" K&L Notes: Finally, a proper distillery bottling of Mortlach. Named for the unusually small 6th still that helps creates Mor...

(GS, Spring 2019)" K&L Notes: 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.

Clan Denny proudly holds specialist, rare and aged single malt and single grain Scotch whiskies. Bottled as the distiller intended, without coloring or chill filtration, affording the whisky a rich, oily quality. A Douglas Laing bottling of 10 year old single malt from the Craigellachie distillery, released as part of the Clan Denny series. Only 382 bottles were made. "Craigellachie" and "Clan Denny" sound kind of similar, so we hope that influenced the decision to release this whisky under this bottling range.

Craigellachie 13 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

90 points Whisky Advocate: "Light amber. The initial impression is one of bulk. There are heavy florals — think lilies and stewed white fruit, and just-overripe banana — but this is given a mysterious extra heft by an underpinning of a light meatiness, accompanied by a tiny lift of (good) sulfur. The palate is, unsurprisingly, thick and creamy with huge fruit that fills the mouth. A highly physical, old-style Speyside dram with classic distillery character. A statement whisky that is a must-try. (DB, Winter 2014)" K&L Notes: Finally, the new release fro...

From the bottler: "Aultmore have been producing whisky in the Speyside region since the late 1800s, and their expressions impress us on a regular basis. However, despite their hundred-year-long history, there's hasn't really been a big, juicy story about Aultmore for us to turn into a label. So, what happened instead was we made the label be a shark going toe-to-toe with a velociraptor (or should that be fin-to-weird-scaly-claw?) on a cargo ship. We reckon we made a pretty good choice."
