2007 Unnamed Speyside (Macallan) 12 Year Old "Signatory Unchillfiltered Collection" 2nd Fill Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

As you might have noticed the market for Macallan has gone absolutely bonkers. We can't get old Macallan on the shelf for under $2000 and young Macallan is completely unavailable. In fact, over the years we've only bottled one other young Macallan and it was likewise not named. But this is the first and only sherried Macallan we've ever had the honor to put our mark on. I have no clue why the distillery is divesting stocks, especially those aged in ex-sherry (even refill). We hear grumblings that the distillery needs cashflow for the extremely expensive ...

2007 Don Q "Limited Edition" Single Barrel Rum 750ml (Previously $37)

The Puerto Rican rum Don Q has a history stretching back to 1865 but the brand only relaunched in the continental United States in 2006. The 2007 "Limited Edition" is only the second such special offering by the distillery and was aged for 10 years before release. One of the best values we've yet to see in the rum market, Don Q remains the most undervalued player in the Puerto Rican rum market. Distilled by Serralles Destileria in Ponce Puerto Rico, this brand is best selling rum in Puerto Rico. While this is traditional spanish style rum, it doesn't sac ...

The incredibly diverse producers of Armagnac across Gascogne have previously not had many options if and when they chose to commercialize their stocks.

2014 Bunnahabhain Staoisha Heavily Peated 4 Year Old "Signatory Unchillfiltered Collection" Dechar/Rechar Cask Strength Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Bunnahabhain distillery is located at the far northern edge of the island of Islay and was built in 1881.

It deftly balances classic vanilla notes with an assertive dose of spice, hints of leather, and a mild medicinal note that lingers on the finish. It's a welcome addition to Kentucky bourbon."

1997 Ledaig 21 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Cask Strength Single Sherry Butt Island Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Pre-Arrival)

The odd and wonderful Tobermory distillery is one of Scotland's most picturesque and divisive. Only the Jura Distillery has more disperate opinions of their products. But something that almost every peat lover can agree on is the fact that the distiller's peated line, Ledaig, is an absolute dream. And it's remained in relative obscurity until recently. We've had a good deal of independents offer us Ledaig over the years, but it's almost always young stocks in very quiet hogsheads.

The magical distillery on the south shore of Islay, like all south shore distillers, is quite unlike any other. But Laphroaig has a certain place in the hearts of the hardest core peat lovers. They're the last distiller down there to malt a portion of their barley on site. Their complex system of tiny stills create the most peculiar and enticing peated spirit in the world. The quality and consistency of their casks is second to none. But over the last decade, what was once a staple in the independent bottling repertoire has completely disappeared. Laphro ...

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. At that time 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 letter ...

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 ...

1996 Auchroisk 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Let's get the hardest part out of the way: It's pronounced "Ah-thrusk." This non-peated nutty and spicy malt is the result of hot and fast whisky making. A quick mash of the malt, a short fermentation period, and a rapid boil in the wash still leave this whisky heavy and rich. A style that makes it a cult favorite for drinkers and blender's alike. Located just south of the Burn of Mulben and east of the River Spey, Auchroisk was originally built to supply J&B with malt for their famous blend.

Bernheim Original Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey 750ml (ships as 1.5L) (Previously $30)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Initial scents are floral and wheat cracker-like; aeration adds deeper, mildly sweet aromas of sap, fresh vanilla bean and light honey. Palate entry is finely balanced with wood, moderately sweet grain and acidity; by midpalate the alcohol warms the throat with off-dry flavors of charred oak, light toffee and sap. Finishes elegant and warm. A true sipping whiskey." (12/2005) K&L Notes: Heaven Hill's father and son Master Distillers team of Parker and Craig Beam developed the wheat formula for this whiskey using a minimum ...

Ocho Plata Tequila (750ml) (Previously $64)

Ocho's tequilas are made by Carlos Camarena, a third-generation Tequilero, and Tequila Ambassador Tomas Estes. And each vintage -- yes, these are vintage designated tequilas -- comes from a single estate with its own mesoclimate, making them the most terroir-driven tequilas on the market. The NOM 1474 or Tequilera Los Alambiques actually represents the very same facility where the famous Tapatio and El Tesoro are made, the famous La Altena Distillery. This collaboration seeks to distill the purest form of agave to highlight the distinct flavor difference ...

Talisker 10 Year Old Isle of Skye Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

90 points Whisky Advocate: "Another that should need no introduction. The thing to look for in Talisker, as with all smoky whiskies, is sweetness that gives the requisite balance to the drying effect of smoke. Underneath Talisker’s smoke, which ain't as all-pervading as Lagavulin, is a sweet pear-like quality. When young there are notes of the land: heather, moor, sweet seaweed, and a finish that has a distinctive cracked black pepper hit. (DB, Summer 2012)" Wine Enthusiast: "The piquant nose offers immediate and stunning notes of sea salt, peat reek an ...

Michel Couvreur "Cap a Pie" Whisky (750ml)

This unusual expression from our dear friends in Bouze-les-Beaune is a slight departure from their usual sherry driven malts. This blend of sherry aged malt whisky and whisky barrel (hogshead) aged grain is similar to their popular "Unique Whisky," but with a higher proportion of malt aged in medium humid conditions. The result is something awesomely round, but unparalleled freshness. The little blend dubbed, "Head to Foot" really has it all. The complete package for anyone looking for an easy drinker that doesn't leave you wishing for more. Rich malt fl ...

The 86 Co. Cana Brava 3 Year Old Panama White Rum (750ml) (Previously $25)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This bartender-owned brand has created a light, nearly neutral rum perfect for mixing into Papa Dobles and other cocktails. Though barrel--aged for three years and blended with older rums, the appearance is nearly clear, with just a faint golden tinge. Relatively neutral on the nose and palate, this rum almost reads like vodka, with pleasant marshmallow, ginger and lime zest notes on the clean finish. (KN)" (08/2013) K&L Notes: We are sad to see the 86 Company go, but we're glad to help them move through the last of their pr ...
