Virgil Kaine ‘ Ashcat’
Blended Bourbon Whiskey

This limited edition strikes a balanced blend between the sweetness of a 5 year old wheated bourbon, the spice of High-Rye bourbon plus the tannins derived from sherry casks. This is all just a fancy way of saying they have created a great tasting bourbon. Savor this one. When it’s gone, it’s gone.
NOSE: Cane sugar & sherry
TASTE: Butterscotch, orange peel & dried figs
FINISH: Smooth & long
PRICE = $76/btl

 Stop by the store for our tasting with Virgil Kaine Bourbon on Friday, January 27th from 3-6pm


Usquaebach: An Ard Ri Cask Strength

Usquaebach’s first new release in nearly 25 years is here: Usquaebach An Ard Ri Cask Strength, a blended malt composed of more than 20 single malts (no grain whisky), each aged 10 to 21 years, packaged in a blue glass version of its traditional flagon decanter. This limited release is made with casks from Master Blender Stewart H. Laing’s personal collection. He selected from a range of Highlands whiskies, including Inchgower, Benrinnes, Craigellachie, Glengoyne, Dailuaine, Blair Athol, and Auchroisk. At 57.1% ABV, the finished product is a powerfully complex and structured, yet harmoniously smooth cask strength blend. The nose has notes of roasted carrots, anise, pipe tobacco, and leather. The palate shows a bit more sweetness, including some molasses notes, burnt bread, coffee grounds, and a touch of torched citrus peel. The finish is modest and drying, coaxing out a bit of prune alongside notes of dried herbs. PRICE = $210/btl


Loch Lomond: Single Grain Whisky

This addition to the Loch Lomond line-up is an elegant and full bodied Single Grain with a satisfying smoothness – making it exceptionally easy to drink. This is one Single Grain Scotch Whisky with a distinctive background character of soft fruits and creamy vanilla with a hint of peat smoke. Perfect anytime over ice or with a hint of water. PRICE = $35/btl


Ichiro’s Malt & Grain

A lovely blended whisky from Japan, created by Ichiro Akuto (founder of the Chichibu distillery), the Japanese whisky extraordinaire. This particular gem is made with both malt and grain whisky from Japan as well as (possibly) some whisky from as many as 8 other distilleries too – The label describes it as “a worldwide blended whisky’.

Nose: Peach and dried apricot, sweet butterscotch, vanilla cream, citrus zest, synthetic bananas and gooey malt.
Palate: Toffee first and foremost, with notes of barley malt, gingerbread, tropical fruits, honeyed pipe tobacco leaves, black pepper, roasted chestnut and freshly cut hay.
Finish: Medium length with vanilla and dried tropical fruit.
PRICE = $140/btl
