It begins with Kentucky Rye, providing a firm base of spicy rye, rich oak, dried fruit and subtle molasses undertones to build on. Canadian Rye from our award-winning Alberta Distillery is skillfully layered in. This unique rye provides depth to the notes of dried fruit and a more viscous mouth feel than a traditional rye. It's then finished with a touch of California Port blended in directly to add complementary juicy, ripe fruit without muddying the existing wood notes. The end result is a whiskey full in flavor and still delicately nuanced. Basil Hayden's Dark Rye is always perfect sipped on the rocks as well as in a Boulevardier.

David Nicholson Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon WhiskeyIn 1843 a grocer by the name of David Nicholson started distilling his original bourbon recipe in the private back room of his St. Louis general store on North 6th Street. Unbeknownst to its forefather, a legacy was born. Half a century his recipe had been passed down for generations. Eventually, the legendary Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle and W.L. Weller handcrafted Nicholson’s iconic “43” bourbon at the Stitzel distillery. The Van Winkles owned the brand until 2000 when it was acquired by Luxco. Still possessing the outstanding character for which it earned its original popularity in 1843, the David Nicholson legacy lives on unchanged, unfettered, and unmatched. This extra-aged-ryed bourbon has a full-bodied flavor and a distinct, spicy taste.

WhistlePig Double Malt Straight Rye Whiskey 18 year oldDave Pickerell built WhistlePig in pursuit of crafting the world's finest and most interesting Rye Whiskeys. After years of devotion to patient aging and innovative blending, we've turned our attention to experiments with grain - in particular, the bygone practice of malting rye. Before industrial catalysts were introduced to increase efficiency, farmer distillers would malt a small portion of their rye harvest in order to access the grain's starch content and set off the fermentation process. Floral, earthy flavors imparted by malted rye would add nuance to the bold, peppery spice character of classic rye whiskey. To harness these flavors for our oldest expression of WhistlePig yet, we selected a whiskey distilled from 79% rye, 15% malted rye, and 6% malted barley. These grains form a harmony that spans the flavor spectrum, at once soft and floral, rich and savory, and full of spice. Its complexity is only heightened after 18 years in the barrel. Sweet and aromatic, with toasted oak, berries, and nutmeg nose. Elegant and spicy, mildly fruity, and pleasantly floral. Vanilla and oak notes appear with time. Wonderfully long, clean, and spicy finish.

Yellowstone Limited Edition Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 2019Limestone Branch Distilling Co. has impressed with its limited release bourbons over the past three years. Over this time they’ve reused, and more interestingly, re-charred the same barrels each year to finish their bourbon for their limited releases. Surprisingly, this didn’t create a miss-mash of convoluted flavors but instead created a warm and potent-tasting whiskey that were some of my favorite finished whiskeys each year they were released. In 2019, they took a different approach, and according to the company, poached some of their best 9 and 12-year-old barrels to create this year’s blend. This is a straightforward blend that presents its flavors well, is easy-drinking, but also might not necessarily blow you away. It definitely leans on the darker, heavier side of the flavor wheel with its oak, chocolate, and spice. Thankfully there are veins of sweetness throughout that provide a sudden and welcomed contrast. In any other year, this year’s Yellowstone Limited Edition would probably make more of a splash. It just comes at a time when many other blends have been hitting it out of the park (Little Book Chapter 3, Lux Row Double Barrel, and Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch). Still, that doesn’t diminish what this release does well. It delivers a nicely constructed, and gentle overall intensity bourbon that makes it a really nice sipper. Nose : Cherry, vanilla custard, oak, and light orange citrus. Warming and pleasant, with a gentle intensity. Palate : Oak, dark chocolate, burnt caramel, dark sweet fruit, and leather. It has a soft delivery with a thin mouthfeel and tastes less than its stated proof. Finish : Spice, oak, vanilla, and cinnamon. Medium length finish that is slightly dry with a slow ramp-up of heat.
Corner Creek Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 10 year oldThe enigmatic Corner Creek brand was bottled for years at a famous little family-owned distillery in Bardstown. Recently the brand moved production to the Kentucky Artisan Distillery in Crestwood production and relaunched with this new 10-year-old expression. The source is a secret, but there's no question that Corner Creek has the connections to find some seriously delicious bourbon and this new expression is leaps and bounds ahead of the previous no-age-stated Corner Creek. They've selected their choicest stocks for this product and bottled them without chill-filtration. Even at 88 proof, this bourbon exhibits great richness and texture, wonderful depth, and a believable balance. This is the sort of bourbon that appeals to the most novice drinker (due to its approachable character) but will be interesting enough to satisfy even the most jaded bourbon nut. Please note that due to the lack of filtration you'll notice some haziness in the whiskey. This is completely normal and means your bourbon is packed with flavor. K&L is the only store in California selling this exceptional offering.
Sazerac Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey 7 year old
New Riff Distilling Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Bottled in BondThe Bottled in Bond Act of 1897 represented a watershed moment for American whiskey. For the first time, a group of Kentucky whiskey makers stood up for the quality of Bourbon, demanded an end to spurious blending and rectifying practices, and required legal protections for the best of the best. In fact, compared to international regulations governing the quality of other great aged spirits such as Scotch and Cognac, we find that America’s Bottled in Bond Act, now going on 120 years old, is no less than the highest quality standard of any country in the world. Rather than reserve Bottled In Bond for special or limited releases, it is the signature of all of our whiskey. Aside from barrel proof single barrel bottlings, ALL New Riff whiskey will be Bottled in Bond. Yet the highest quality standard in the world is not high enough for us: we are taking the standard one step further by dispensing with chill filtration to ensure that not a single molecule of flavor is sacrificed for cosmetic appearances. We are firmly grounded in Kentucky’s revered Bourbon legacy, but this is our riff. A new riff on arguably America’s greatest whiskey tradition: Bottled in Bond Without Chill Filtration.
