2005 Laphroaig 13 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Unchillfiltered Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
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...

2005 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac
Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "A meaty and decadent Lynch with very ripe currant aromas on the nose. Full body, velvety-textured tannins and a powerful finish. It shows so much structure and fruit yet remains polished and focused." (10/2015) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "There's a relaxed feel to this wine. Cazes's team can dress Lynch-Bages in the black-tie formality of a first growth, but the wine is still lovely-a touch of gaminess makes it friendly rather than ponderous. There's something ethereal about its tannins, like a chocolate truffle melting in the...

2005 d'Yquem, Sauternes
Back In Stock!
Top Pick!
97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This isn’t sweet, but just so wonderfully rich. It’s the concentration of botrytis that makes the wine. The texture is velvet, but with a spicy bite to it. Apricot, honey and marzipan all contribute to a wine that will age over decades. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2009) 97 points Wine Spectator: "This has a deliciously pure feel, with juicy, inviting green plum, ginger, heather, creamed pineapple and Jonagold apple flavors all melded together and gliding through the lengthy finish, which echoes with lilting flowers and drie...

92 points Wine & Spirits: "This vintage emphasizes dark chocolate and French roast coffee scents. Its luscious cherry flavors give a soft, round impression in the middle, then it lightens up a little, needing time for the flavors to extend. The fineness of Langoa is there, and should be more apparent in ten years' time." (10/2008) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Big, ripe, almost exotic, this has developed impressively over the past 18 months. Its tannins are certainly huge, but so is the fruit, warm, rich and enticing. Very powered, it thrusts black curra...

Alexander Murray has recently been making some waves. They've used their buying power through large volume purchases for many of the country's largest chain retailers to secure stocks of some very special and rare distilleries. While many of my suppliers are unable to offer me cask strength Laphroaig of any age for less than £100+ a bottle, Alexander Murray is putting small batch cask strength malt from Islay's most flavorful distiller into the bottle for a bargain. After a little poking and prodding, we were able to secure a special price and offer this...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene is spectacular. Huge honeysuckle, nectarine, and citrus oil notes along with some lemon blossom, crushed rocks, and subtle smoke are all present in this full-bodied wine that is buttressed by sensational acidity. This is a gorgeous wine that should age for at least a decade. This 121-acre estate with 114 producing acres of vineyard all located in Knight’s Valley continues to be at the top of their game and I can’t recommend the wines highly enough." (12/2007) 94 points Stephen...

Finally, the great 2005 Gran Reserva from our favorite Rioja winery has arrived! As is the case with so many other great spots in Spain, Bodega Casa Juan is located opposite the village church, in the beautiful walled pueblo of Laguardia. The winery is a converted flour mill, featuring concrete tanks for fermenting and blending the wine, and barrels that are used for up to seven years. These are traditional Riojas in elaboration and spirit, though the site specificity of their Laguardia and Villabuena vineyards confers a fruit character all its own to th...

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "100% from vines in Aloxe and all domaine fruit. The majority of wines in the range have been expressive and open yet this is tight and backward to the point of reticence yet it is still beautifully elegant with green apple and acacia blossom aromas that merge seamlessly into stunningly rich, full and powerful flavors that possess real drive and punch on the penetrating finish that is chiseled and almost painfully intense. We'll see the final result once it's in bottle but this would appear to have terrific potenti...

2005 Clos St. Martin, St-Emilion
Back In Stock!
97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With a gorgeous nose of super-concentrated black cherry/kirsch liqueur, this wine offers notes of licorice, crushed rock and flowers followed by a full-bodied, powerful, rich finish with a boatload of tannin. This is a long-distance runner and a sensational effort in the vintage. Drink it over the next 25-30 years. 97+ (RP)" (06/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Beautiful crushed berry, spice and raspberry tart character follows through to a full body, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. A pretty w...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot (note that rarely is any Merlot utilized at the historic Napanook Estate in Yountville). The alcohol, by California standards, is a relatively modest 14.1%. Blending the best of French savoir faire with the brilliant fruit purity and ripeness of Napa Valley, Moueix has turned in another tour de force that seems far superior today than it did when it was first released. This is one of the vintage's greatest wines. Dense purple and youthful...

2005 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des Ducs"
Back In Stock!
96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "The magnificently pure and airy essence of notably ripe dark pinot fruit, cassis and menthol remains reserved and cool with its exceptionally rich, classy, sweet and vibrant mineral-driven and large-scaled flavors that are shaped by powerful if buried tannins. While magnificently long, this stunning Ducster is completely shut down at present and it would be a vinous crime to open one at this very early point in its development as the '05 is built for the very long haul, indeed 20 years may be too soon. In my view, th...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 La Bienfaisance is a rich, concentrated wine with loads of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit along with some earthiness and subtle background oak. It is medium to full-bodied, ripe, and extremely well-made in a progressive, modern St.-Emilion style. Drink now through 2025. (RP)" (06/2015)

2005 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml)
Back In Stock!
97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Rieussec is a blend of 90% Sémillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle picked between 23 September and 27 October. It has a fabulous bouquet that is mineral-rich and tensile. The palate repeats its performance from last year: focused, tense, laden with botrytis-rich fruit with a crystalline and sorbet-fresh finish that seals the deal. One of the best releases from the estate in recent years. (NM)" (01/2017) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Shows enticing aromas of toffee, cream, dried apricot and caramel....


2005 Lascombes, Margaux
Back In Stock!
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A gorgeous example of Lascombes, the 2005, a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, continues the remarkable turn-around in quality that began five years ago. A stunningly opulent wine with a dense purple color, the 2005 possesses a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, creosote, and graphite, full body, silky but noticeable tannins, a layered mouthfeel, and a stunning, 45+-second finish. This is a brilliant, modern-styled Margaux that should age for 30-3...

100 points James Suckling: "The nose on this seems more concentrated than the 2000, and the purity of fruit is stunning, with blueberries, raspberries, fresh flowers, and hints of licorice. This is perfect and complete. Full bodied, with notes of forest berries and wild raspberries, this is thick and velvety with perfectly polished tannins. You can really feel the density on this, more than the tannic structure. This is a sleeping beauty that will be utterly captivating when it awakes. Don't touch this until after 2015." (11/2010) 99 points Vinous: "Fr...

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, saturated ruby-red. Deep aromas of black fruits, violet, tobacco, licorice, minerals, nuts and earth. Lush, rich and sweet, with an intriguing smoky character and lovely lightness for a wine with so much breadth and volume. Unusually powerful and deep for this bottling; complex and distinctive. In a rather Old World style, with complex soil tones currently dominating primary fruitiness. Finishes broad and dry, with very lush, fine tannins. A superb vintage for this estate. Winemaker Brookman ...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Proprietary Red Wine is a blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, all from the Oak Knoll sector of Napa. Its deep ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by a sweet perfume of mocha, caramelized black cherries and currants, and hints of chocolate as well as espresso. With terrific fruit, medium to full body, supple tannin, and well-integrated acidity and alcohol, it should be drunk over the next 8-10 years. (RP)" (12/2007) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of plum and roasted sage lead to intense, ...

2005 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac
Back In Stock!
95 points James Suckling: "This is an impressive and dynamic 2005 with blackcurrant, sweet-tobacco and raw-meat aromas that follow through to a full body with wonderful fruit complexity and succulent tannins. It’s a joy to drink now, but will continue to improve for decades ahead. One of the best ever." (09/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fine and impressive even in this vintage, Clerc Milon’s 2005 has a dense purple color and a beautifully sweet, creamy blackcurrant nose of cedar wood and flowers. Spicy, earthy, rich, and medium to ful...

98 points Wine Spectator: "Really tight now, but packed with dark fig, currant, espresso, licorice and chocolate notes. Superfleshy but seriously structured, there's layer after layer of sweet spice, fruit and minerality pumping through the finish, with lots of latent depth and power. Far more backward than the 2003 or 2004 on release, but since this red typically puts on weight as it ages, it should be a monster--à la the 1990--when it reaches its peak. Best from 2009 through 2030. *Ranked No. 1 of Top 100 Wines of 2007, Collectibles* (JM)" (12/2007) ...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the least expensive wines produced by Gerard Perse, the 2005 Clos l’Eglise (70% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) exhibits notes of sweet cranberries, jammy black cherries and strawberries, crushed rocks, and flowers. With a dense purple color, medium body, loads of fruit, and a soft, round mouthfeel and finish ... (RP)" (08/2008) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Currant, licorice, mocha and cedar on the nose, with suggestions of superripe fruit. Fat, lush and ch...

92 points Wine Spectator: "There's such beauty to this, with mineral, currant, black licorice and berry on the nose. Full-bodied, with supervelvety tannins and a long, long finish. The best Pibran in a long time. (JS)" (03/2008) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage in many a year, the 2005 Pibran is once again a very successful wine. Dense opaque purple, with loads of crème de cassis fruit, licorice and incense, the wine is medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, and should hit full maturity in about 3-4 years and last at...



96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "After tasting the 2005 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée two separate times from varying casks and barrels at the domaine, this was my first taste from bottle and I certainly wasn't disappointed. Surprisingly, this doesn't possess the same meaty and burly Pegau aromas but showed a pure, clean and precise character. Bright raspberry, cherry and mineral aromas shows up at first but with air, more earthy, peppery and tar laced aromas show up. The palate is awesome with beautiful balance, tension and texture that lea...

96 points James Suckling: "A meaty and decadent Lynch with very ripe currant aromas on the nose. Full body, velvety-textured tannins and a powerful finish. It shows so much structure and fruit yet remains polished and focused. " (11/2015) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "There's a relaxed feel to this wine.

96 points Decanter: "A long, cool growing season, with harvest from the end of September to the end of October, delivered fantastic flavour development. More Bordeaux-like than most in the tasting, it was highly aromatic, with a lush cassis, violet and graphite nose, and intense flavours of dark plum cherry fruit, cocoa, and notes of espresso. It’s expressive right now, yet the powerful tannins say it’s got years to go. One for collectors. Drinking Window 2018 - 2035 (EM)" (06/2018) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is still ri...

2005 Reignac, Bordeaux Supérieur
Back In Stock!
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a large 200-acre vineyard, this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a high plateau near the village of Saint-Loubès. A consistently over-achieving wine that is far superior to its humble appellation (Bordeaux Supérieur), the 2005 may be one of the all-time great Reignacs. Inky purple, almost black to the rim, the wine looks like a two-year-old rather than one that’s already hit a decade. Proprietors Yves and Stephanie Vatelot have turned out a superlative effort in this vintage that is ...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-brick colored, the 2005 Ancient Way Vineyard Summer's Vineyard gives up stewed tea, tobacco and tilled earth scents over a core of plum preserves, mincemeat pie, cherry cordial and chocolate box plus touches of truffles and smoky bacon. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has compelling earthy accents and a good long finish. (LPB)" (12/2018) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Deeply pitched dark fruit preserve aromas show a superripe, decadent character, w...

2005 Pavie, St-Emilion
Top Pick!
100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Even more flamboyant and sexy than the 2000, the 2005 Pavie has everything you could ever want from a wine. Deep, inky purple-colored, an awesome perfume of cassis, blackberries, toasty oak, graphite, and incredible minerality, full body, sweet tannin, and a blockbuster finish all make for an extraordinary Saint-Emilion. It’s still a baby but offers incredible pleasure today. It’s going to last for another 3-4 decades." (08/2018) 100 points James Suckling: "This is monumental. Just a baby with a fresh and intense mouthfeel and ...


92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This château, which is often under the radar (production is only 5,500-6,000 cases), has fashioned a terrific, inky/blue/purple-hued 2005 with a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers, creme de cassis, pain grille, and blueberries. Powerful and concentrated with full-bodied richness, stunning purity, and a tannic, 40+-second finish, this beauty requires patience. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030+. (RP)" (04/2008) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Offers loads of toasty oak and very ripe fruit, with hints of coffee and tob...

2005 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (1.5L)
Back In Stock!
98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, from a cool limestone terroir on the plateau, the 2005 Château Pavie Macquin is extraordinary juice, and the finest vintage of this cuvee I’ve ever tasted. Sporting a saturated purple color as well as an off the hook bouquet of crème de cassis, blackberries, smoked earth, chocolate, and Asian spices, with a sensational sense of minerality developing with time in the glass. Deep, full-bodied, massively concentrated, and multi-dimensional, it’s just now at the ear...

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-red. Smoky black raspberry, mocha, tobacco, earth and brown spices on the nose, along with a saline hint. Sweet, concentrated and serious, with an attractive sugar/acid balance to the flavors of dark berries and chocolate. Firmly structured and quite impressive for a second wine. (ST)" (05/2008) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2005 Altagracia (91% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot) reveals a spicy, mineral-laden, black fruit...


2005 Nicolas Potel Clos de la Roche Grand Cru
Back In Stock!
95-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Potel’s 2005 Clos de la Roche smells sweetly of cherry liqueur, blond tobacco, honey and iris. If this were a white wine if would be a nobly sweet one. Explosively intense in the mouth, with sappy, sweet cherry, quarry dust, tobacco, pungent flowers, citrus zest, and gradually emerging hints of game, it finishes with almost indelible sweetness and complexity. (DS)" (06/2007) 91-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red. Explosive, perfumed nose offers kirsch, licorice and faded flo...

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark red. Intensely floral aromas of spicy strawberry and raspberry underpinned by zesty minerality. Cinnamon-accented red berry flavors show excellent precision and thrust, with no excess fat. Finishes on a sexy note of Asian spices, with wonderful length. (ST)" (05/2007)


2005 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the world’s great wines and profound expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon, is the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select. This wine spends more than 30 months in 100% new oak, and, year in year out, has been one of the most singular and profound examples of Cabernet Sauvignon in the world. It seems Shafer began to ratchet up performance during the 1990s, and the first decade of the 21st century has provided a treasure trove of either perfect or nearly perfect wines, including the 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007...

97 points James Suckling: "This appears to be the synthesis of the fabulous 2001 and 2003. It shows wonderful aromas of botrytis spice, honey and citrus rind. Lots of fruit with a tropical fruit undertone of mango and papaya on the palate. Intense finish. Too excellent not to drink. " (07/2013) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers lots of botrytis spice, with lemon tart and cooked apple. Full-bodied, with loads of cream and vanilla and an intense tropical fruit and honey aftertaste. Long and viscous, with a layered and beautiful spicy finish. Hard not t...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005 Pontet Canet is a bruiser that’s still not anywhere near primetime. Blackcurrants, scorched earth, graphite, and saddle leather all emerge from this concentrated, powerful, structured 2005 that has an incredible amount of fruit, yet no shortage of ripe tannin, extract, and length. It needs another 4-5 years (or more) to hit maturity, but it’s an incredible wine that’s going to reward patience. 97+" (02/2018) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Pontet-Canet vertical in London, the 2005 Château Pontet-...

This rum from independent bottler Mezan was distilled at Guyana's famous Diamond distillery in 2005. Herbaceous with note of spice and citrus.
Price: $54.99

97 points Wine & Spirits: "Phil Steinschriber has yet to begin replanting Gravelly Meadow, which is the youngest of the original plantings at Diamond Creek (1972). Closest to the break in the hills that brings cool Pacific air across Diamond Mountain, this is also the coolest of the three sites. Aromatically, this 2005 has a lot in common with the wine from the north-facing Red Rock Terrace. The fruit grows increasingly wild, untamed and energized as it takes on air, red cherry and strawberry with the fatness of petit verdot (as in St-Julien, a tiny port...

94 points Wine Spectator: "This has really nice drive, with a racy beam of raspberry and linzer torte pushing through the sweet mocha-tinged structure up front, while pushed by a mouthwatering minerality on the back end. There's a lovely raspberry and black pepper encore on the finish. Drink now through 2025. (JM)" (04/2008) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Smoky raspberry and licorice aromas, with a complex array of garrigue, fresh flowers and spices building with air. Vibrant cherry and dark berry flavors are youthful...

Connoisseurs Guide: "There is no question but that age is beginning to show here, yet if no longer an especially fruity wine, this version is shot through with exotic spice, hints of dried herbs and undisguised oak, and it delivers considerable complexity nonetheless." (02/2011)
Price: $69.99


99 points James Suckling: "The purity of fruit to this is fascinating with plums, currants and other dark fruits. Then there is another layer of spices and chocolate. So much cassis. Full and very layered with chewy polished tannins and a long, long finish. Just starting to open. Changes all the time. Still needs a year or two but gorgeous to drink already.

2005 Domaine Faiveley Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru

95-97 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "As aromatically complex as the Clos des Cortons is, the Clos de Bèze goes it one better with a dazzling array of spice, earth, mineral, fruit and subtle floral aromas that change every few seconds but continue onto the elegant, pure, transparent and vibrant flavors that possess superb power and striking depth of material on the unbelievably long finish. This is also quite firmly structured but completely balanced and the flavors are the perfect example of the term power without weight. A monument in the making but...

Medina Vineyard Chardonnay shows lovely fruit that is complemented by subtle floral notes. Flavors of pear and lemon are expressive upon entry and build with layers of sweet, toasty oak that expands into a nice, creamy texture. The natural crisp acidity adds liveliness to the palate and enhances the fruit flavors, which carry through to a long, persistent finish.
