Ardbeg Ten Years Old is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. Yet it does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance.
Scotch | 750ml
Whisky Advocate 96 PointsPowerful, muscular, well-textured, and invigorating. Even within the realm of Ardbeg, this one stands out. The more aggressive notes of coal tar, damp kiln, anise, and smoked seaweed are supported by an array of fruit (black raspberry, black cherry, plum), dark chocolate, espresso, molasses, bacon fat, kalamata olive, and warming cinnamon on the finish. Quite stunning!
In 2009, Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible named Ardbeg Uigeadail ‘World Whisky of the Year’ – in praise of its “utter silky brilliance” and “complexity on a level only a handful of distilleries in the world can even dream of reaching.” Ardbeg Uigeadail (pronounced ‘Oog-a-dal’) is a special vatting that marries Ardbeg’s traditional deep, smoky notes with luscious, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks. It's non chill-filtered at high strength, which retains maximum flavour and gives more body and added depth. Deepest gold color.Rich and weighty with heady and smoky aromatics, this expression of Ardbeg is both intensely flavoured and perfectly integrated. At full strength, the initial aroma is a beguiling mix of warm Christmas cake, walnut oil and parma violets fused with fresh ocean spice, cedar and pine needles falling from the Christmas tree. A smouldering smoky coal fire and the deep scent of well-oiled leather brings warmth to the scene. The sweetness of treacle toffees and chocolate-coated raisins bring indulgence through the smoke. Full flavoured and rich with a deep mouth-coating texture, the taste is an intriguing balance between sweet, spicy and deep smoky flavours. The flavour is initially sweet as Christmas cake begins to soak into the tongue. A burst of winter spices sets off a smoky-spicy explosion countered by a sumptuous mid-palate of honey glazed smoked food and chewy treacle. Waves of deep smoky tones and rich aromas build up on the palate like a fine Montecristo cigar. Amazingly long and chewy with lingering raisiny, deep mocha tones and rich aromatic smoke into the perfectly integrated finish.
Triple distilled and matured for over twelve years. A Lowland single malt whisky with the tempting aroma of toasted almonds, carmelized toffee and the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste.
Scotch | Scotland | Glasgow | 750ml
This unique Auchentoshan Lowland Single Malt Whisky has been matured in three different cask types. Moving from American Bourbon to Spanish Oloroso Sherry - and finally Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks - Three Wood is a rich, complex whisky with incredible toffee and sherry oak flavours.
The third release of Balblair 1989 is subtly amber in appearance with rose gold highlights. A full bodied malt with aromas of raisin, green apples and hints of banana and lemon. The American oak, ex bourbon casks used in the maturation lend a warm toffee vanilla fragrance. On the palate there are raisins and fruits with rich spiciness leading to a long, complex and ultimately smooth finish.
Golden yellow color. Rich aromas of honeyed figs and dried fruits, caramelized nuts, and toasted muffins follow through on a satiny entry to a fruity-yet-dry medium-full body with excellent interplay and balance. Finishes with a long wave of spicy pistachio nougat, sweet cream, toasted grain and minerals. An elegant, almost feminine whisky with an alluring style.

The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two wood types. Over the period of maturation it is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill European oak sherry cask. Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt. The traditional casks soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavor. Sweet fruit and Oloroso sherry notes on the nose, layered with honey and vanilla. Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavors ~ nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry. Long and warming finish.

Recently voted "Best Islay Whisky of 2011" by the Whisky Advocate, the Bruichladdich 10 has finally reached the American west coast where at last we can revel in its glory. Finally, ten long years after re-opening the distillery, Bruichladdich has reached the finish line - a ten year old malt composed entirely of whisky made after the resurrection. The wait has been worth it. Many of us at K&L feel that Bruichladdich's post-2001 whiskies are some of the best distillates in the world - they've always just been a bit too immature. The quality of the spirit coming off their pot stills is simply jaw-dropping (their Botanist gin is also delicious), and we've been excited to see what it can do after a decade in the barrel. That time is finally here. The malt is ultra smooth, creamy with citrus notes, stone fruits, and the trademark saltiness that makes it an Islay whisky through and through. The price is also right. For a small independently-owned distillery, the boys at Bruichladdich have struggled at times, but they've always landed on their feet. The 10 year is one of the most anticipated whiskies of all time and for about $50, it's one of the best single malt deals we'll see this year. For those lamenting the rising cost of good whisky, make sure you take home the Laddie 10 and savor each drop. This is true handcrafted whisky. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)
Rich and smooth, this is an expression of a unique tradition that has continued unbroken since the Chivas Brothers first introduced the world to the rich, smooth Scotch whisky of Chivas Regal over 500 years ago.

This is a superb example of what Clynelish can produce even at younger age. The balance is sublime and the mouthfeel is perfectly rounded. A great 14 year old Highland malt, quite coastal too.
Nose: Zesty, mandarin, tangerine. Smoky.
Palate: Quite light, great clarity. Orange, soft acidity. Dry oak. Mixed fruits, vanilla, leather.
Finish: Quite long, bitter sweetness developing, spicy oak.
The Fourth Edition of Flaming Heart is a big, smoky malt whisky with rich, concentrated vanilla and spice character that combines Highland single malt whiskies aged on the highest quality, new French oak, with a heavy-peated Islay single malt. And for the first time a small portion of whiskies aged in sherry casks, providing added layers of richness and complexity.
Launched in late 2008 to replace the previous 12 year old, this single malt from the Dalmore distillery is a toasty, coffee-rich dram with beautifully spice notes and a thick mouthfeel. Very rich for a 12 year old.
Nose: A warm coffee house in Seattle; roasting beans, the oily nuttiness in a fine espresso, there are little notes of malt and cereal and butter from the pastry counter with rich orange from the fruit bowl on the counter.
Palate: Notes of Seville marmalade and triple sec with winter spices and fruitcake. Zesty cocoa and milk chocolate.
Finish: Medium, oranges.
Warm, buttery and mellow. Double barrel aging makes Dewar’s 12 Blended Scotch Whisky an even smoother blend with a long, lingering finish.
The White Label stands as the oldest active blend in scotch today. A lemon, white peach and oaky nose is followed by a bit of creaminess in the body, with plums and cinnamon sweetness, concluding on a peppery bite.

A 15 year old matured in American bourbon, Portuguese sherry and virgin oak. The whisky was then married in a Solera vat. This is a great staple 15 year old from the Glenfiddich distillery.
Nose: Sherry, citrus - orange in particular, dry wood. Slight suggestion of smoke?
Palate: Medium, sherry, raisins. Fruitcake, spices, sweetness.
Finish: Candied fruits, raisins, spices, Christmas pudding, oak takes over.
This 18 year old from Glenfiddich's core range was matured in a mix of Oloroso sherry and bourbon casks.
Nose: Loads of fruit. Zesty grapefruit, apples. Dry wood.
Palate: Candied fruits, spicy, toffee, ginger, sherry, syrupy.
Finish: Peels, spices, sherry, sweet ginger, touch of salted toffee.
The 18 Years Old is a single malt Scotch whisky of serious distinction. Once it has spent fifteen years maturing in American white oak casks approximately 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend a further three years maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, we blend them back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavour.
Nectar D'Or is probably a reference to the golden nectar that was previously held in the casks used to finish the whisky. This is a sauternes finished single malt from the Glenmorangie distillery, a fruity, vinous release from the Highland distillery.
The nose is full of dessert wines, a little fruitiness with a good barley sweetness. The palate is quite full with more dessert wine notes, but with cereal notes and barley, a touch of malty spice and berry fruits with good oaky tannins and little herbal notes. The finish is long with a good oaked note and more noble rot.

Malt Advocate 91 Points: John Glaser Four time winner of Whisky Magazine's Innovator of the Year, the Compass Box Whisky Company is renowned for its high quality, award winning spirits. Great King Street was created to revive interest in Blended Scotch Whisky - a style which is usually overlooked due to the large amount of poorly made, inexpensive brands on the market. Glaser is single handedly making blended whisky cool again and owning a bottle of the Great King Street definitely makes you the coolest guy on the block. After a series of esoteric and expensive releases, Compass Box has decided to bring it all back to the people with a blend and how! The journey sets out as we might expect; all sweet vanilla ice cream, stewed pear tart, and peach melba, but then a wave of spice and white pepper provides an unexpected but delightful twist. It’s like Spice Tree meets Hedonism...Spiconism if you like.

Layers of big flavor, deep richness and smoke, layers of honey and fruit and an incredibly smooth finish. a mellow, rounded nose, with a dry smokiness mixed with raisin sweetness.
The whisky begins sweet and creamy, with notes of vanilla, honey, and ripe malt (reminiscent of a malting floor). Then the Laphroaig signature peat smoke, seaweed, tar, and medicinal notes emerge. Bottling at 48% and without chill-filtering keeps the whisky from being dulled down. A whisky that is very dynamic.
Triple maturation in 3 types of cask. The first maturation is in American oak, ex-bourbon barrels. Then transfer into small 19th century style Quarter Casks for a second maturation. The final maturation is in specially selected, large European oak, Oloroso sherry casks. The initial flavour is quite sweet with a gentle mixture of sweet raisins and creamy apricots with just a trace of the dry peat smoke at the back, the smoother nutty flavours combine all these flavours into one smooth, syrupy whole. With a touch of water the peat smoke comes to the fore and masks the gentler fruitier notes. Even with the maturation being carried out in 1st fill bourbons, quarter casks and sherry butts, the intense bonfire ash smell of the earthy peat cannot be masked. Powerful yet with a creamy consistency. Mouth filling and extremely long but balanced by the sweet smooth caramel taste.
Simply the best 12 Year Old single malt around. The secret of The Macallan lies in defiant adherence to traditional methods and ingredients. The continued use of finest Golden Promise barley and the insistence on sherry oak casks from Jerez, Spain are just two of the pre-requisites for perfection.

Deep amber in color. It has clearly picked up some color from its time in the port casks. The nose has some extraordinary spice and depth with cinnamon, clove, and oak. There are very subtle cherry and vanilla notes underneath the spice that makes this bourbon amazingly inviting. The entry is packed with flavor that balances spice, sweet and heat with cinnamon, oak, vanilla, and cherry notes all coming together perfectly. Things build evenly from the entry to the mid palate with a superb balance of grain, wood, and fruit flavors. The finish is fairly long with the heat transforming to a nice cool mouthfeel and the sweet cherry and spice lingering on. This is the kind of whiskey that gets better and better as you drink through it, and it's very difficult to drink just one glass.

Hand bottled after 7 years of aging. It is deeply mellow and richly flavorful with a medium bodied taste. Smooth flavors of vanilla and caramel.
Distillery Notes: "Basil Hayden's is unequalled in that it utilizes twice as much rye in it as the other bourbons in the Collection. Enriched by a hint of peppermint, it impresses with notes of pepper balanced by slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish. Aged eight years at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden's has a broad appeal and is equally enjoyable alone or in cocktails such as a Juicy Basil and Basil Bubbly."

One of the few uncut, unfiltered Bourbons. Dilute with mineral water at two parts whiskey to one part water. Iced tea color. Potent, heady, spirity bouquet leaps from the glass in fiery, sweet, tangy notes; inhale in small doses. On the palate, Booker’s offers high-flying flavors of wood, smoke and wine at entry; midpalate is sweet and corny. Memorable finish has tastes of fruit and nuts. A swashbuckling Bourbon that requires a whip and a chair. Wine Enthusiast 90-95 Points

E.H. Taylor Small Batch Straight Kentucky Bourbon is a small batch, Bottled-In-Bond, 100 proof bourbon whiskey aged in Taylor’s warehouse. Taylor built his iconic brick warehouse for barrel aging in 1881 and the Warehouse is still in use today. After seven years on the sixth floor, his namesake bourbon whiskey tastes of caramel corn sweetness, mingled with butterscotch and licorice. The aftertaste is a soft mouth-feel that turns into subtle spices of pepper and tobacco.

Distillery Notes: "Marrying, or mingling, multiple Bourbon flavors is an art in itself. Four original and limited Bourbons have been expertly selected by our Master Distiller at the peak of maturation to create a perfectly balanced small batch Bourbon that rewards you with a mellow symphony of rich, spicy flavors along with sweet, fruity aromas and hints of sweet oak and caramel. Finishes soft, smooth and pleasantly long. Best enjoyed straight up, on the rocks, or with a splash. 90 proof."

An 8-year-old bourbon that sets the standard by which all other bourbons are measured. Frankfort, leaving surveyor's benchmarks as guides for the settlers that followed. The bourbon made at the distillery that originated there sets its own Benchmark by which all others are measured.Pale amber with an olive cast. Aromas of buttery caramelized grains and nuts follow through on a soft, brisk entry to a dryish medium body with husky grain, honey buttercream, subtle dried fruit, and nutshell notes. Finishes with warming, peppery spice, prune, and caramel wrapper fade.
On the nose, Rock Hill Farms Single Barrel Bourbon boasts incredibly complex, layered notes of dried fruit, toasted walnut, marzipan and vanilla, complemented by hints of mint, cocoa and black pepper. The palate is bold, yet beautifully balanced, offering a zesty, fruit-forward entry which blends with flavors of dark chocolate, candied orange, almond, coffee, tobacco and caramel. The long, smooth finish offers a proper measure of oak dryness, contrasted by notes of sweet vanilla and caramel.
Rowan's Creek Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey is named for the distillery's limestone-filtered water source. This bourbon is distilled, aged, and bottled in small batches, and each bottle is hand-numbered with its batch number. At a full 100.1 proof, this is assertive stuff, yet it is still delightfully sippable. Slightly lighter than Noah's Mill, it displays caramel, dried fig, smoke, cedar, leather, white fruit, and dried flower notes on the nose and palate. Complex and intriguing, this is a special whiskey for any occasion.

Cognac and Armagnac
Cognac & Armagnac | France | Bas-Armagnac | 750ml
The youngest of the brandies in this typical Bas-Armagnac blend was aged in oak barrels, in our cellars, for at least 7 years. A beautiful shade of amber. A strong prune bouquet with a wealth of concentrated aromas, the suggestion of freshly baked bread and a touch of toast and gingerbread. Aeration reveals superb aromas of baking bread, rancio and candied fruit. So smooth and well-rounded on the palate that there is only the flavour of fine oaky vanilla.

A boisterous 12 year old Bas Armagnac blended and bottled by the incomparable Darroze as part of their Grands Assemblages range. Hints of liquorice and cinnamon here, this really blossoms after a minute or two breathing in the glass.
Francis Darroze has been described as the Pope of Bas Armagnacs and is widely recognised as the top producer in the region. Darroze owns no vineyard, instead works with small growers ageing the spirits in his own cellars. The end product is totally authentic, each bottle is hand drawn and bottled from its original aging cask. Francis refuses to blend casks from the same Domaine or same vintage feeling that this would diminish each cask's individual charm and integrity. Darroze also refuses to add water to his brandies (a common and legitimate practice in both Armagnac and Cognac). Each cask is carefully monitored and tasted regularly to adequately judge its maturation and evolution. The results speak for themselves. This is why the Bas-Armagnacs of Darroze are served in the world's best restaurants and sold in the finest stores.
The most complex and evolved Gaube we have tasted, showing finesse as opposed to raw power. Rich, round and complex with a beautiful Oloroso Sherry character. Soft and lovely finish showing hints of roasted nuts and toffee. (Bacco grapes dominant)
A delicate blend of the two finest Cognac areas : Petite Champagne and Grande Champagne. This XO COGNAC has reached perfect maturity after 15 years spent in oak casks. Deep ambercolor with a hint of vanilla, flowers, honey and hazel-nuts. The complex, well-balanced bouquet gradually reveals.
Premier Cru from the best Grande Champagne vineyards. Aged 25 years. It is very rare and precious Cognac of unrivaled subtlety and elegance. Rich, full bodied Cognac. Deep, warm with layers of old wood roasted nuts. Exceptionally smooth, rich and harmonious with flavors of wood and nuts and a long finish with expansive, complex aromatics.
For the first time in the history of Louis XIII, cellar master Pierrette Trichet has decided to present one cask as a special edition to be enjoyed by true connoisseurs of the French-made Remy Martin cognac.The first edition comprises of limited numbered black crystal decanters each designated ‘43.8′ for the alcoholic strength that is the distinguishing mark of the cask. Through a combination of factors such as climate and humidity during its aging, the cask has developed an extra strength of 43.8 instead of 40 degrees alcohol.The craftsmen of French-house Baccarat have created a fresh version of the iconic Louis XIII decanter, whose shape was inspired by an ancient metal flask that was found in the mid 19th Century on the site of a 16th Century battleground. Handcrafted in black crystal, more than 50 operations are necessary to make a Louis XIII decanter, all of which must be executed by a team of some 20 master craftsmen working together before the glass cools. The neck of the decanter is dressed in palladium.The decanter is presented in a "coffret" forged in metal. Mirrors and internal lighting aim to display the lustre of the black crystal, and the neck of the decanter is secured by a metal clasp that is designed to present the black crystal stopper like a precious jewel. The “coffret” is embellished with a quatrefoil design inspired by the royal fleur-de-lys of France, aiming to offer a contemporary rendition of a traditional motif that celebrates the historic roots of Louis XIII.Louis XIII Rare Cask is described as a "supremely rare" limited-edition Cognac, drawn from a single cask; only 786 black crystal decanters were produced.
