Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $100)

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* " (06/2006) 94 points Whisky Advocate: "An old classic, but how do the newest bottlings fare? Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture. Deep peat ...

Douglas Laing's "The Gauldrons" Batch #1 Limited Edition Campbeltown Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $65)

Gauldrons means "Bay of Storms," and according to the bottler, this Scotch evokes "the ghosts of the long lost distilleries that once proudly proclaimed Campbeltown Scotland’s Whisky capital. The Gauldrons is a marriage of the finest Campbeltown Malts, bottled in very small batches at 46.2% ABV, and proudly bottled without coloring or chill-filtration. On the nose, detect a dry saltiness with sweet cereal and a late hint of gentle peat smoke. The palate is initially dry (beachy and maritime) warming to crunched sugar, barley, and oak. The warmingly spice ...

Talisker 18 Year Old Isle of Skye Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "First sniffings boast big-hearted aromas of maple sugar and caramel; further aeration stimulates marine notes of seaweed and light brine, but deeper notes of chili pepper, black pepper, honey and vanilla top off the experience. Palate entry is honeyed and full; at midpalate the taste profile inches its way towards the smoke-tobacco-ash-tar side of the flavor scale, but is sweet. Concludes moderately oily and lightly salty.

Ardbeg "Uigeadail" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $73)

94 points Whisky Advocate: "Launched in 2003, Uigeadail remains one of Ardbeg’s core offerings. Matured in a mix of sherry and bourbon barrels and bottled at cask strength. Peppery peat, warm tar, coffee grounds, machine oil, and black pepper on the nose. The palate is complex and rich, offering orange segments sprinkled with sea salt, dark chocolate, malt, and ever-present sweet peat. Nicely balanced. Lengthy in the finish, with smoky caramel.

92 points Whisky Advocate: "This Private Edition expression was made using a strain of yeast found growing on local barley. It was aged for approximately 8 years in mostly second-fill and refill bourbon casks. Barley sugar and honey on the nose, followed by lily of the valley, lavender, and white pepper. Big gingery fruit notes on the palate; fresh-squeezed orange juice, vanilla, and black pepper. The finish is long and attractively earthy. *Editors' Choice* (GS, Summer 2019)" K&L Notes: The tenth expression in the always anticipated Private Edition rel ...

1988 Cambus 29 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $100)

The shuttererd Cambus distillery had a spectacular history in the development of modern whisky and has had an equally important, albeit shorter and more recent, history in K&L's direct import program. At the dawn of the 20th century not everyone was in agreement that grain whisky produced on a Coffey still could actually be considered whisky. The extraordinary quality of Cambus was a key component in establishing that precedent which is a huge part of today's whisky trade. In fact, for many years, Cambus formed a large portion of Johnnie Walker Blue. Unf ...

2007 Benrinnes "Old Particular" 11 Year Old K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $55)

While we take every opportunity we get to buy a blue chip distillery cask at reasonable prices, it's the unsung heroes that I believe make our Scottish single cask program truly compelling. Benrinnes is just such a distillery. One of the many workhorses in Diageo's stable, this Speysider is prized for its massive contribution to the final texture and profile of blends. While we've bottled many older expressions in the past that have showcased the distillery's unique partial triple distillation technique, we thought it time to show off the younger, freshe ...

Drambuie Liqueur (750ml) (Previously $32)

96-100 points Wine Enthusiast: "The nosing passes find layers of aromas of honey, heather, pine needle, thyme and salty single malt Scotch whisky. Entry is thick, gently sweet but balanced by a fierce herbal quality; midpalate focuses on the whisky while the various herbs, spices and honey make merry around their whisky core. One of the best liqueurs available." (05/2008) K&L Notes: The classic Scotch whisky liqueur. Make yourself a rusty nail - one of the easiest and most delicious cocktails on the planet.

1995 Loch Lomond ("All Malt") 22 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $90)

We have two amazing rarities from the reclusive Loch Lomond distillery this year. A unique facility, Loch Lomond makes every type of whisky they need for their blends in house. This means they operate a huge number of stills including multiple column stills and multiple pot stills. They make whisky in damn near every combination from heavily peated single malts to peat free malt and multiple varieties of grain whisky. This 22 year old is technically a single grain, but as grain whisky can be made from any grain, this so happens to be made from malted bar ...

2004 Fettercairn 14 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $60)

The tumultuous ownership history of Fettercairn has been in part responsible for the lack of brand recognition. While it has long been bottled as a single malt, it has never gained much notoriety that way and the bulk of its stocks end up in blends, most recently for Whyte and Mackay. An interesting production set up, particularly from 1995 to 2009 when they used stainless steel condensers, has lent itself to a nutty and heavy style to the malt. Fortunately for K&L drinkers, this 14 year old whisky has taken that natural style and matured into a oily, ri ...

Ardbeg "Corryvreckan" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $82)

96 points Whisky Advocate: "Powerful, 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.

2008 Tullibardine 10 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $50)

Tullibardine is a small distillery in the village of Blackford, gateway to the Highlands. Its history goes back to the 15th century as a brewery of fine beers. In fact, its first royal charter for beer was established in 1503. Its modern history as a distillery is quite a bit younger, but no less well-received. Founded as a distillery in 1949 by architect William Deelme-Evans, the distillery offers an intimate visiting experience. While the property has changed hands a number of times over the years, it has come to be a family-owned company. The Picard f ...

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

The palate yields full-on hot peat, pipe tobacco, black coffee, licorice, and more chocolate. The finish is long and malty, with sweet smoke. Non-chill filtered.

2010 Glen Garioch 8 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $50)

This property in Oldmeldrum has a reasonable, albeit disputed, claim to being the oldest legal producer of whisky in Scotland. It officially dates back to 1797 and traditionally it has been a quite heavily peated malt. In the 1990s, under the ownership of Beam Suntory, after a period of closure, Glen Garioch reopened and started producing the unpeated whiskey they're known for today. Even without the peat, Glen Garioch managed to retain lots of richness and its distinct waxy tallow and spice. This 8 year shows just a smidge of faint smoke, a beautiful sa ...

Linkwood 21 Year Old Gordon & Macphail Speyside Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $170)

The excellent 21 Year Old Linkwood is about as close to a distillery bottling of this special malt. G&M have great contracts with many of the rare blenders workhorses and their wood selection is second to none. That's why these excellent expressions command upwards of $170. We're very lucky to take advantage of some closeout pricing as Gordon & Macphail change distributors.

The Balmenach Distillery is one of Speyside's oldest. Originally licensed to James McGregor in 1824, it was likely running illicitly for years before. The distillery sits hidden behind Lethendry Hill on the banks of the river Spey outside the town of Cromdale. The distillery changed hands many times over the last two centuries and was mothballed on occasion as well. In 1997, the distillery was sold to current owners, Inver House, who also sell the Balblair, Old Pultney, Knockdhu, and Speyburn whiskies. All of those brands have taken center stage over the ...

1995 Glen Keith 21 Year Old "John Milroy" K&L Exclusive" Single Barrel Cask Strength Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $110)

This wonderful cask of Glen Keith was selected by our friend Doug McIvor for its exceptional balance and character. The distillery in Keith has been rare in modern times due to its closure from 2000 until 2013. While it served as a partner to neighboring Strathisla as one of the component malts in the Chivas Blend, it was also the site of much experimentation and some unusual production techniques. There they developed unique yeast strains and alternative ways of peating whisky--namely the use of extremely peaty water to ferment the mash. Keith has long ...

Compass Box Oak Cross Blended Malt Whisky (750ml) (Previously $55)

Whisky Advocate: "A blend of three different single malts. Its name derives from the fact that the whisky is aged in American oak bodies with French Oak heads (a cross of both oaks). There’s no age statement, but the whiskies are all older than ten years. This is a gentle, subtly complex, somewhat lithe, easy drinking whisky (and with less oak spice than its predecessor, The Spice Tree). People think whisky is an after-dinner drink, but I think this would make a great aperitif because of its delicate dry spice notes and light body. I’m picking up evenly- ...
