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.

1987 Invergordon 31 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)

It's not every day you can buy a 30+ year old whisky for $100 bucks! As grain ages it takes on incredible mellow richness. They're known for being good values, but the market has been pushed up thanks to big age statements in recent years. While we love these old grains, we don't think you should be paying $200-300 for them even with these big age statements. Instead, we've secured some of the best singel grains at the very best prices. Invergordon is a grain distillery situated north of Inverness on the Cormarty Firth.

Mortlach 25 Year Old Gordon & Macphail Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $220) Top Pick!
Mortlach 25 Year Old Gordon & Macphail Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $220)

The magnificent old distillery in Dufftown has garnered quite a following over the years, even without a flagship bottling. So much so that the owners have decided to finally release a distillery bottling. This is not that, which retails for nearly $1000-- it is in fact much more delicious! Old-school rugged Mortlach, from a mixture of refill Hoggies and sherry butts, using the old original distillery label that G&M owns from when they bottled for the previous owners. They're smart so they kept those old trademarks, and now we reap the benefits. A fabulo ...Read More »

Nikka "Taketsuru" Pure Malt Japanese Whisky (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The luxe aroma mixes rich butterscotch and apple sweetness. On the palate, this whisky is light and gentle, interspersing fruit and smoke and finishing with a spark of cinnamon heat. Add a splash of water; recommended for sipping. (KN)" (03/2016) K&L Notes: So you've heard that Japanese whisky is quite popular these days. You're right; it is.

Nikka Coffey Still Japanese Grain Whisky (750ml)

92 points Whisky Advocate: "Sweet, with subtle, crisp, nutty oak, then comes fudge, ripe banana, and peach. The overall effect is like eating vanilla ice cream with toffee fudge and hazelnut sprinkles. The structure is thick and physical, the palate sweet and quite fat, with light hints of raspberry, fruit salad. A jag of acidity freshens the delivery on the finish. With water there’s more toffee, and it becomes slightly more yielding, with less oak. For me the gold standard of grain.

Peppery peat, warm tar, coffee grounds, machine oil, and black pepper on the nose.

The excellent peated expression from the Tobermory distillery is even better when aged for years in high quality casks. Gordon & Macphail's Connoisseur Choice is a vintage expression of the smoky island whisky aged for 18 years in refill sherry hogs head. The salty, intense spirit loves the used sherry and the resulting whisky is one of the finest we've seen from Ledaig under any label.

Sweet on the nose, with honey and vanilla; fleetingly, stewed apricots and peaches, plus a hint of caramel. Intensely focused, sweet tropical fruits on the palate, with barley sugar.

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.

The excellent Balblair Distillery has always been a bit of an underdog. The distillery bottlings are very well regarded but typically hard to get and not totally inexpensive.

In this case the lovely highland distillery was filled into refill american hogsheads more than two decades ago.

2010 Caol Ila 8 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

We didn't say no to a single Caol Ila cask this year. They're too good and too reasonably priced. With the demand for Islay peat as high as it has ever been, the quality of these casks combined with sharp pricing was an absolute no brainer. This Old Particular bottling is charged from a refill hogshead and, as always, bottled with no coloring or chill filtration.

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.

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.

While it was always one of the more available high quality malts on the market, Talisker was almost NEVER bottled by independents. Word was that Diageo prohibited the sale of casks to blenders under that name, but a special few bottlers, like Gordon & Macphail, had access to filling contracts which allowed them to ...Read More »

Helios Distillery "Kura The Whisky" Rum Cask Finished Pure Malt Japanese Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Helios Distillery "Kura The Whisky" Rum Cask Finished Pure Malt Japanese Whisky (750ml)

The Helios Distillery in the city of Nago has become renowned for their exceptional Awamori, the local Okinawan specialty. This is a kind of aged Sochu that has been consumed on the island since the 15th century. While they made their name locally for selling Awamori, Helios was quietly distilling ultra high quality rum and malt whisky. Their flagship whisky, sold under the Kura brand, is one of the most unique and enticing Japanese whiskies we've ever come across. They begin with peat sourced from the mires of Hokkaido. The Japanese peat has a lot of th ...Read More »

Laphroaig 10 Year Old "Batch 010" Original Cask Strength Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Laphroaig 10 Year Old "Batch 010" Original Cask Strength Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

93 points Whisky Advocate: "A turbocharged version of the formidable standard 10 year old, Cask Strength varies in ABV from batch to batch. Tar and antiseptic hit the nose immediately, along with peat smoke, malt, newsprint, and new leather. There’s also lemon, vanilla, and brine. The sinewy palate mirrors the nose, adding charcuterie and cocoa powder. Predictably medicinal and phenolic in the very long finish, with balancing sweet malt. (GS, Fall 2018)" 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Islay's Laphroaig is famed for its intensely peaty profile, and this sin ...Read More »

2006 Isle of Jura 12 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2006 Isle of Jura 12 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Isle of Jura is one of those incredible malts that we almost never see in the wild. Partly that's because they just don't make that much whisky. But it does seem that the owners, Whyte & Mackay, don't let go of the stuff very often. Isle of Jura has its following, but the little distillery on the sparsely populated island to the north of Islay isn't a household name by any means. The island's 200 inhabitants are vastly outnumbered by a massive population of red deer, who keep the islands vegetation from growing beyond the lowest grasses. The infertil ...Read More »

1996 Tobermory 22 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
1996 Tobermory 22 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

There is only one distillery on the Isle of Mull and while it has a history dating back to the late 1700s, for much of that history, the distillery has been closed. Fortunately for us, in the 1990s the distillery was opened again after its most recent 11 year closure, and has gone back to producing classic island malts. With its small production of less than 1 million liters per year the distillery makes two very different malts today. Tobermory is the namesake malt of the distillery and is generally, although confusingly, not always unpeated. Ledaig is ...Read More »

Ardbeg 10 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $50)

93 points Whisky Advocate: "Straw-gold color. On the nose, sweet toffee, citrus notes, seaweed, and spice complement a powerful peat smoke infusion. In body, it is thick and oily. On the palate, a somewhat sweet maltiness up front is run over by a powerful peat smoke locomotive. Again, the whisky is enriched with citrus and pear notes, spice, and seaweed. The finish is powerful, long, and warming. The smoke lingers for minutes, if not hours. Style: Islay single malt Scotch whisky … .

White Oak Distillery Akashi Grain Whisky (750ml)

Located in the town of Akashi, near the famed city of Kobe in Japan, White Oak distillery has been in operation since 1919, although very few Americans are familiar with the whisky. Owned by Eigashima, it is actually the oldest operating distillery in Japan, having received its license four years before Yamazaki produced any whisky, despite the fact that it would be another forty years before they actually used it. The non-age statement (NAS) grain whisky is light and fruity with a classic malty profile and a round, supple finish.

2010 Ben Nevis 7 Year Old "Signatory" 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

We've had an incredible history with Signatory and their exceptional managing director Des McCagherty. He's been an incredible resource for questions about the industry and consistently offered us exceptional stocks from their vast warehouses of top tier malt. Signatory has done a great job in the last few years of building stocks despite the incredible limits imposed on independent bottlers by distillers who covet their stocks like never before and refuse to release them in bulk as was once the norm. In order to acquire stocks you either need to pay top ...Read More »

2008 Mortlach 10 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
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 ...Read More »

Highland Park 12 Year Old Isle of Orkney Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Elegant, light and pretty. This amber spirit has a light, briny vanilla scent and a silky feel. A veil of smoke rises through the Scotch (but fades out fast), leaving behind a sweet nutty, vanilla finish. *Top 50 Spirits of 2011* " (12/2011) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "Highland Park 12 Year Old boasts individuality and complexity, thanks in part to the use of Orcadian peat in the distillery floor maltings and the employment of ex-sherry casks for maturation. The nose is fragrant and floral, with hints of heather and some spi ...Read More »

Oban 18 Year Old "Limited Edition" West Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

91 points Whisky Advocate: "Drier, less toffee and fruit, more dried spice and oak when compared to the standard Oban 14 year old. A beautiful combination of rich, nutty toffee balanced by polished oak, salt, pepper, seaweed, distant smoke, and dried fruit. Somewhat oily in texture. Wonderful depth, too! An improvement on what is already the biggest-selling Diageo single malt scotch in the U.S. Very exciting and dynamic. (JH)" (12/2008) K&L Notes: Always tough to find--this is a limited-edition bottling for the U.S. only. As the distillery states: "onl ...Read More »

Lagavulin 8 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "Light in color it may be, but this is no wimp. The nose goes straight to the shore with mineral and salt, but it’s also sweet, which allows it to be fresh, lively, yet balanced. The palate delivers some menthol, bay laurel, more brininess, a hint of malt, and Parma violet. Everything remains very breezy, with peat smoke being blown from a kiln into salt-laden air. I prefer it to the 12 year old and the price is fantastic. (Summer 2016, Dave Broom)" K&L Notes: The new regular release from Lagavulin whisky that packs all the peat, smoke, ...Read More »
