2000 Chateau de la Grangerie 18 Year Old "Cask #67" K&L Exclusive Armagnac (750ml)
Review Date: 03-13-2020
The genius and beauty of vintage Armagnac shows in the different tastes of the 1999 Grangerie and the 2000.The 2000 is classic (see the review for the 1999 for the contrast) with a beautiful floral nose. In the mouth it is rich and round with subtle stone fruit flavors. The 2000 is pretty and easy and should please any Armagnac drinker.

In just a few words, the Corner Creek 10 is expressive, pronounced, and delicious. It is rich and round, with concentrated cherry, apple, and caramel flavors. If one adds some water, creamy and sweet notes come through. It is good with and without water and should please any bourbon drinker.

Rey Campero Tepextate + Pulquero K&L Exclusive Single Batch Lot#D5001-TP Mezcal (750ml)
Review Date: 02-07-2020
One of the things that I like about mezcals is that there is such a variety of flavors and styles. This single batch from the excellent producer Rey Campero is an excellent addition to the world of mezcals. It is lively and offers something different each time it is tasted. The nose is complex with light smoke and then a layer of savory and floral aromas. In the mouth it is soft , full, round and very complex, with flavors of smoke, savory, citrus and a kiss of sweet.There are a lot of excellent Mezcals to choose from and this should be at the top of any ones list.

1998 Glenburgie 21 Year Old "Old Particular" Single Refill Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 01-06-2020
This is a great single malt and is a super value for a 21 year old single malt. In the nose it is like sweet honey with a touch of bees wax. In the mouth these sweet honey notes continue in a full bodied and rich treat. Secondary flavors of spice and savory add complexity and make this a wonderful drinking experience. I think that this selection tastes best with a small splash of water.

2018 Chehalem "INOX" Willamette Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 11-11-2019
This wine show cases the wonderful Chardonnay fruit of Willamette valley in Oregon. It is not aged in oak barrels and this allows the fruit to show its character and flavors. The Inox is round and pretty with focus and energy. It has bright fruit but is clean and has a nice crisp finish. This will compliment both fish and fowl dishes but is easy enough to drink alone.

Both of the single barrel offerings that are now in stock are unique and very good. Tasting them side by side shows why the single barrel bottlings are so interesting.

2015 Guido Rivella "Fausoni" Barbaresco
Review Date: 09-17-2019
This is from one of my favorite producers who is working with the nebbiolo grape. He seems to bring out the best that this grape and region have to offer. It is classic with inviting and expressive aromas that lead to a full bodied wine.It is complex with fruit, earth, acid and tannins all coming together to make a delicious wine. It is on the young side but will open up with a few hours of decanting. This will go well with hearty foods.
