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)" (3/2016) 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. The palate is more rounded than that very forward nose, with ...Read More »

Smooth Ambler "Big Level" Wheated Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) Top Pick!
Smooth Ambler "Big Level" Wheated Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

Smooth Ambler's Big Level Bourbon is a unique wheated bourbon, meaning after the requisite base of corn (in this case 71%) the next largest contribution to the mashbill is 21% wheat followed by 8% malted barley. It's entirely mashed, distilled, aged, proofed, and bottled at the Smooth Ambler distillery in West Virginia and does not undergo chill filtration. That high portion of corn and wheat makes for - you guessed it - a rather smooth and elegant bourbon! Its relatively young age (5+ years) gives it a jovial, fresh edge. Gentle flavors of caramel, poun... Read More »

Aperol Aperitivo Liqueur (750ml)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Among the canon of Italian spirits, Aperol and the Aperol Spritz cocktail are classics, available at a growing range of America's best bars. The lurid red hue is recognizable from across the room. It's light on every count—in terms of alcohol content, sweetness level and texture. The gentle sweet-bitter profile goes down easy—especially when lightened with bubbles. (KN)" (4/2014) K&L Notes: Aperol's unique flavor and color is achieved through a subtle blend of bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb and an array of herbs and roots--using a secret recipe that has been unchang...

Campari (750ml)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "There’s no mistaking this classic apéritif, from the vibrant melted lipstick-red color to the distinctive signature bitter finish, clean, clear and strong. It’s high, bitter and faintly floral-fruity in scent. Americanos and Negronis wouldn’t be the same without this jewel-like spirit. *Top 50 Spirits of 2011* (KN)" (12/2011) K&L Notes: The classic bar staple is a must have for anyone looking to build the ideal at-home bar. The producer explains the well-guarded secret to Campari's success: "A unique and unmistakable recipe has characterized Campari, the aperitif par... Read More »

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "A stunning limited-edition añejo. The golden color and caramel scent hint at what’s to come: sweet agave flavor, a lingering whisper of smoke and mellow notes of tropical fruit, Sauternes and butterscotch. (KN)" (5/2011) K&L Notes: Cannot be shipped, will call pick up only.

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*" (6/2006) 94 points Whisky Advocate: "An old classic, but how do the newest bottlings fare? Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture.

Eagle Rare 10 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "Ten years of barrel time has created a concentrated caramel scent and palate spiked with sarsaparilla and allspice, finishing spicy and quite hot, with a fleeting orange peel note. Balances with a bit of branchwater, but needs a light touch. *Best Buy* (KN)" (7/2015) K&L Notes: Buffalo Trace was named Distiller of the Year by Whisky Magazine in 2005 and 2007 and by Wine Enthusiast in 2006.

Then it’s pumice, apricot, and marmalade, followed by salt water taffy, cinnamon, and a big burst of nutmeg. A long finish offers a hint of peach pie.

Drinkable solo as an apéritif, or use it as a cocktail-mixing favorite. (KN)" (4/2014) K&L Notes: Carpano's Antica Formula, from the original recipe developed by Antonio Benedetto Carpano in 1786, is a sweet vermouth of the highest quality. This distinctive and powerful aromatized wine should be considered a standard component in any respectable bar. It can be served chilled as an aperitivo, a digestivo or a... Read More »

This golden-orange liquid has a tart apple and citrus scent, with a touch of honeysuckle behind that, and a honeyed flavor with a dry, faintly spiced finish. Light-bodied and drinkable, made even more so with the the addition of lime juice and club soda. Pair with cheese or charcuterie." (2/2011)

St. George "Terroir" Mt. Tam Gin (750ml)

Wine Enthusiast: "One of a trio of new gins from this artisan distiller, this gin's claim to fame is that it was inspired by a hike on Mt. Tam, and the distiller describes it as akin to 'drinking a martini in a pine forest.' Some will find the juniper essence too strong, although it also reads as clean and bracing, and it's laced with a peppery finish. Botanicals include Douglas fir, fennel, bay laurel and sage. A portion of the profits from the gin are donated to support California wilderness. (KN)" (4/2012)

They do a lot of things the old way, while their competition has chosen to move forward with modern accoutrements, 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.

1988 Port Dundas 28 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Closed by Diageo in 2009, Port Dundas was formerly a grain distillery that operated in North Glasgow, providing the base whiskies for White Horse and Johnnie Walker. Over the years we have bottled a number of wonderful old grain casks for reasonable prices, and today is no exception. This 28 year old beauty is a candyland of excitement. It has flashes of sweet stonefruit and strawberry preserve. The palate jumps from toasted, candied coconut to vanilla shortbread and then back to honey granola and cinnamon sugar toast. There is a glazed nutty finish and ... Read More »

(KN)" (7/2016) K&L Notes: Named North American Whiskey of the Year at the 2006 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Best Buy of the Year at the 2006 WhiskeyFest. Rye was the first Colonial American whiskey, and was the most popular spirit in the US for more than a century until it fell out of favor.

St. George NOLA Coffee Liqueur (750ml)

Wine & Spirits: "Not as unusual, but certainly noteworthy, is the St. George NOLA Coffee Liqueur. Based on the New Orleans–style chicory coffee, the lightly sweet and spiritous brew combines cold-steeped Ethiopian Yirgacheffe beans with vanilla and cane sugar. Pure roast-coffee flavor dominates, with hints of cherry and a smoky essence from the chicory. There are just enough floral vanilla tones to keep it from getting heavy.

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. But, 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.

Splash in ginger ale for a highball and sip all night long. *Best Buy* (KN)" (7/2015) Whisky Advocate: "Interesting that the label says “Artfully Aged,” yet there’s no actual age statement. Lively nose, good rye snap and spice, a bit of mint and oaky edge. Not hot, well-behaved on the tongue, and happily gives back everything taken on the nose. Sweet, spicy, ...Read More »

Made from the same set of recipes since 1821, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry has long been the benchmark for fine French vermouth. It is made with fine wines of the region and botanicals found in the Alpine meadows above Chambéry, which impart a fresh and elegant nose with a subtle and complex palate. Ideal as an aperitif or in cocktails. In the late 19th century, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry won medals in Paris, London, St. Louis and Philadelphia and in 1932 earned Chambéry France's only Appellation d'Origine for Vermouth.

Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Gin (1L)

The story of Monkey 47 gin is romantic: in 1951, a British man named Montgomery Collins moved to Germany's Black Forest and opened a guesthouse named "Zum wilden Affen"--the wild monkey. Now considered 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 dusty bottle had been labeled and decorated by hand, showing a sketch of a monkey and the words "Max the Monkey--Schwarzwald Dry Gin." The accompanying lett... Read More »

Caramel and vanilla aromas are echoed on the velvety palate, plus cocoa and espresso, finishing with clove, cinnamon and a hint of lemon peel. (KN)" (12/2017) Whisky Advocate: "Nicely sherried.

What we see in the U.S. of Cognac is a dark and supple sipping spirit, but what we don't always understand is that almost all of these brandies have been artificially sweetened & colored.

Named for the 'angel’s share,' the portion that evaporates from the barrel during the aging process, this golden amber spirit is finished in Port barrels, which explains those juicy red-fruit notes that slide into the long finish. Look for orange peel, vanilla and roasted nut flavors, too. (KN)" (7/2012) 93 points Whisky Advocate: "Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey finished in a port pipe.

And bottling the whisky at cask-strength without chill-filtration ensures that none of the flavors are stripped out.

While not precisely dry, this golden liqueur has its vanilla sweetness tempered by a wash of bitter orange. The scent is rich and agave-like, with a touch of mezcal-like funkiness.

Knob Creek 9 Year Old K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #6756A Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

Another outrageous single cask from Knob Creek. Everytime we get samples from them I'm down right shocked by the age and complexity of these whiskies. This particular cask was distilled on November 20th 2004 and bottled sometime in the last 3-4 months. That makes it at least 13 years old. The only thing more astonishing than the fact that we can sell nearly cask strength 13 year old bourbon for $50 is that Jim Beam doesn't have a plan for any of these old stocks except I guess to sell them to us.

Gray Whale Gin (750ml)

This new uniquely Californian gin is the brain child of Chef and Culinary TV Personality Marsh Mohktari. He set out to make a one of a kind London Dry style gin that exhibited the wonderful bounties of the great State of California. Using the majestic Gray Whale and its migratory path along the 800+ miles of California coast as a symbol for the diversity of ingredients foraged and farmed from local sources, they capture the essence of both our great state and what drinking gin is all about, having fun! But Marsh isn't just about having a good time. He's ... Read More »

Cointreau (750ml) Ships as 1.5L

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A classic, can’t-go-wrong workhorse spirit that provides a versatile option for a wide range of cocktails. This clear liqueur has a bright, true orange scent with a hint of bitter orange on the aroma. The flavor mix is of candied orange slices and lightly bitter orange peel. The finish is warm and clean. Good balance. (KN)" (2/2012) K&L Notes: A must-have classic.

Willett Family Estate 4 Year Old Cask Strength Kentucky Rye Whiskey (750ml)

The flagship, own-distilled rye from Willett Family is truly hand-crafted by our good friends outside of Bardstown. The batches are tiny and have become extremely limited releases. Each batch is bottled at cask strength without chill filtration. Here are tasting notes from Bill Thomas of the Jack Rose Dining Saloon from a recent batch: "The barrels that went into this small batch combined to make an amazing drinker. Nose: Beautiful layering of brandied cherry over a mildly tart cherry. It opens up with time and is reminiscent of cutting into your dessert... Read More »

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. (DB, Fall 2015)" 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The name of this whisky has nothing to do with coffee—rather, it's named for a type ...Read More »

Henry McKenna 10 Year Old Bottled in Bond Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) (Elsewhere $32) Top Pick!
Henry McKenna 10 Year Old Bottled in Bond Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) (Elsewhere $32)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet features smells of new car leather, breakfast cereal, cornmeal, pepper and hemp. Entry is nicely sweet and intensely grainy; the midpalate is the high point as the taste profile expands to include semisweet flavors of caramel corn, toasted marshmallow, dried fruit and chocolate covered cherry. Concludes oaky sweet and chewy. *Superb, Highly Rated*" (12/2008) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "One of the few remaining age-stated bourbons. Henry McKenna’s color is beautiful. You can hold it up in sunset light and just enjoy the russet and amber hues reflecting. Sweetness, savory, ...Read More »

Belle Meade "Batch #6" Cask Strength Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

The new expression from Belle Meade is a seven barrel small batch release aged from 7-11 years old. The high rye content and the solid 115 proof make for a big spicy bold flavored bourbon and the tiny batches allow Belle Meade to tailor each batch to heighten both character and complexity. Turns out that this little operation in Tennessee continues to have some good stocks of great Indiana Bourbon in their warehouses and while we wait for their proper Tennessee Sour Mash to mature, we're more than happy to enjoy this fabulous offering. Since they're no l... 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.

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 »

Cimarron Reposado Tequila (1L) (Elsewhere $32)

From the distillery of Enrique Fonseca, the man behind the legendary K&L Fuenteseca, comes this value-priced label of liter-sized tequila that seems almost too good to be true. I'm willing to bet we'll have a problem selling the Cimarron selections, rather than the ridiculous success we should experience, simply because people will wonder why it's so cheap? Don't let the price tag sway you, however -- this is clean, fresh, easy-drinking tequila made from 100% agave that is definitely up to Enrique's high standards. The reposado is mellow and soft on the ... Read More »

Because Giffard liqueurs are truly designed specifically for use in cocktails, the aromatic profile is the most important aspect of this product.

Laphroaig 10 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Laphroaig 10 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

This 10 year old malt epitomizes the taste of Islay; rich, smoky and peaty. Known as "the most richly flavored of all Scotch whiskies," Laphroaig is widely considered one of the finest distilleries in the world. That they've held that distinction for two hundred years is nothing short of awe inspiring. Laphroaig continues to maintain an on-site malting operation, which accounts for a small but significant chunk of the barley that they distill. Fermentation is conducted precisely in steel before distillation using a complex seven still system. The spirit ... Read More »
