Malt Messenger Bulletin – Our Year End Inventory Sale Ends Tonight!

I’m sure you won’t mind a little update from our Annual KWM Year-End Inventory Sale, currently still in progress!

You have just 24 hours left, both in-store, and online, to take advantage of the deals.

While a number of things have sold out, there are still some awesome deals, which I have highlighted in the lines below.

I’ve also updated the PDF highlighting the Whiskies Discounted More Than 10%. It is linked below.

In-store shopping is welcome, but if you are planning to do so, be sure to dress for the weather, you may be asked to wait. We continue to welcome just 6 customers in-store at a time. Please be sure to don a mask, and if you’re not feeling well, stay home! Order online!

Demand is high, so please be patient. Please wait until you receive confirmation your order is ready before coming in to pick it up. Plan on giving us at least 4-6 business hours to get it ready.

City-wide delivery is available for a $10 fee but is free for orders over $100. We are expecting a lot of demand for delivery next week though, so please be patient! We are currently booking deliveries well into next week.

One last thing, but it is an important one… we’ve changed the date of the Signatory Vintage & The Single Cask virtual tasting to Friday February 12. One of our beloved alumni, Hunter Sullivan, is back for a while, and we’re pulling him out of retirement to co-host the Signatory Vintage & the SIngle Cask tasting with me. We have an awesome range, more details below.

Happy Hunting!

A FEW OF THE BEST DEALS

There are some phenomenal deals this weekend. For the list of everything discounted by 15-40% see the PDF linked below. But if you’ll indulge us, there are a few highlights we’ve showcased below!

Tomatin Contrast

This is a very interesting two half bottle release from Tomatin Distillery which shows the contrast between ex-bourbon and ex-sherry barrels and their influence on Scotch. The disitllery vatted whiskies from 4 decades, and then further matured it in ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry before bottling at 46%.

Was $210 – SAVE 35% – Now $136.49

Jura Seven Wood

Not content with double wood or triple wood, Jura has gone right to SEVEN WOOD with this bottling. Not just a made up golf club, the Jura Seven Wood Single Malt Scotch comes from the Jura distillery on – get this – the Isle of Jura. The Jura Seven Wood is composed mostly of unpeated Jura Single Malt plus a small portion of peated Jura as well. It is aged in a combination of American Oak ex-Bourbon barrels and SIX different French Oak Barrels. Bottled at 42%.

Was $122 – SAVE 35% – Now $79.29

Port Askaig 100 Proof

Port Askaig is a line of mystery Islay single malts. The whiskies are reputed to come from the Caol Ila distillery. The 100 Proof is a no age statement whisky bottled at 57.1% (100 British Proof). It is named for Islay’s ancient ferry and fishing port on the island’s north-east coast.

Was $80 – SAVE 25% – Now $59.99


Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 14 Year

The Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban recently evolved from a 12 year old, into a 14 Year. Matured initially in ex-Bourbon, the wine is finished in Port casks before bottling at 46%. This whisky is replete with notes of chocolate and orange, which is derived from its time finishing in port casks.

Was $97 – SAVE 25% – Now $72.74

Craigellachie 13 Year

Part of the Last Great Malts series from Bacardi/Dewar’s – this 13-year-old from Craigellachie Distillery is bottled at 46% ABV. This 13yr old along with the rest of the Craigellachie official prime-numbered lineup was introduced in 2014. The whisky was a hit in our 2020 KWM Whisky Calendar, and is very good value at $80/bottle. At 30% off it is a steal!

Was $80 – SAVE 30% – Now $55.99

Compass Box GKS Glasgow KWM Cask

Looking for something both sherried and peaty, this ticks both boxes, and it’s really elegant!

This is our third KWM exclusive Compass Box Blend, and it is one for the peat heads! It is also our second marrying cask from the Great King Street line – this time from the Glasgow Blend – which means it has a bit of sherry cask influence and a dash of peat or more as well! Bottled at 49%, the whisky is the 2018 Glasgow Blend, finished for just under 2 years in a second fill Sherry Butt from the Craigellachie Distillery.

Was $94 – SAVE 25% – Now $70.49

Talisker Port Ruighe

Double matured in port casks, this malt is a toast to the Scottish traders who braved the high seas and were instrumental in the foundation of the port wine trade. Port Ruighe, pronounced ‘Portree’ is the Gaelic spelling of the once-bustling trading port on Skye. The port finish combines Talisker’ s powerful maritime character with succulent sweet notes of rich berry fruits for a superb taste experience.

Was $120 – SAVE 30% – Now $83.99


Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or

This whisky was born from the memory of entering a pastry shop for the very first time. It’s about that first moment of finding your senses deliciously overwhelmed, breathing in the sweet scents and wishing you could take a bite of every creamy, flaky treat you see. In Nectar D’Or you can taste it all. To create it, we take the delicate, fruity spirit of our giraffe-high stills and age it in American oak bourbon casks along with casks that once held Sauternes sweet white wine.

Was $102 – SAVE 25% – Now $76.49

SMOS Caol Ila 8 Year KWM Cask

This may only be 15% off, but it has been one of the most popular whiskies over the first few days of the sale. That might be because this 8 year old sherry cask matured Caol Ila is already such a good deal, at just $85. It is big and bold but also balanced for a young malt tipping the scales at well over 60%. Lots of layers given its youth, with the sherry notes building over time to tame the brash young peat and smoke.

Selected by and bottled exclusively for KWM, this 2011 Sherry Butt (Cask 300161) of Caol Ila was bottled after 8 years at a cask strength of 61.2%.

Was $85 – SAVE 15% – Now $72.24

Our Year End Inventory Sale

It’s that time of year again, the Annual KWM Year-End Inventory Sale is on now!

New Arrivals at K&L California – American Whiskey News

High West “Campfire” American Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $55)  $54.99 View

91 points Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark An oddball that crosses the divide between American whiskey and scotch by literally mixing the two, Campfire combines straight Indiana rye, straight Indiana bourbon, and peated blended malt scotch, marrying them together in heavily toasted French and Hungarian oak wine barrels. The scotch adds hearty, meaty flavors to the dry, spicy, and rich bourbon and rye. This is a robust and beefy whiskey, with smoke reminiscent of Southern barbecue. Earlier releases of this ambitious whiskey didn’t quite hit the mark. Now, it’s right on target. *Top 20 Whiskies of 2017* (AP) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark An unexpectedly wonderful pairing with a sweet chocolate or a sticky caramel dessert, Campfire blends straight rye whiskey, straight Bourbon and blended Scotch. Altogether, it’s big and smoky, with lots of iodine, but doesn’t completely overwhelm, settling into a pleasing mix of toffee and peat. Gift a bottle to a Scotch lover to introduce the joys of American whiskeys. (KN) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

K&L Notes

You read correctly – High West is mixing bourbon, rye, and smoky single malt to make the “Campfire,” a wonderfully balanced mix of three different whiskies. It’s rich, spicy, just a little smoky, and totally drinkable. Some of you out there might be on the fence, thinking you don’t need another oddball in the bar, but this would go down fast at poker night or at any other get-together. It has all of the rich wood and spice of bourbon and rye, with that smokiness of an Islay malt. It’s definitely in the style of an American whiskey rather than a single malt. It has more of a barbecue smoke quality on top of the sweet, wooded flavor to go alongside that high-toned cinnamon note present in whiskies like Laphroaig and LDI rye. Delicious!

Doc Swinson’s 15 Year Old “Rare Release Batch #9” K&L Exclusive Exploratory Cask Series Unchillfiltered Small Batch Cask Strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) $159.99 View

Doc Swinson’s has become an absolute sensation in the bourbon world. The skeptics have been silenced and countless bourbon lovers have fallen in love with their exceptional exploratory cask 15 year. It would be negligent not to mention that for those paying attention, the first batch of 15 year old (batch #6) has now become a serious collector’s item. Its successors, batches #7 & #8, sold at record speeds and have been received with equal gusto by aficionados and amateurs alike. Amazingly, our friends at Docs have secured this new batch of 15 year. It’s the same exact bourbon as the first three batches. As the supplier for this bourbon is extremely concerned with the preventing its source from being disclosed, the 29 barrels that went into this excellent small batch bourbon were dumped in KY before being trucked in inert containers to Washington for bottling. This batch was slightly larger than the last three at 4200 bottles, an increase of 240 bottles/two barrels. The gorgeous truth about these awesome bourbons is that each batch has its own amazing character built around an amazing core of classic flavors. Expect a richly-textured, mature bourbon character with aromas of leather, baking spice, brandied cherries, chocolate and fresh wintergreen. Perfect balance between sweet and savory on the palate with a long warming finish. Sadly, according to the bottler, this is the last of these 15 years, although they assure us they’re pushing for more. We’re prayin’ they succeed.

Impex Beverages “A Look Back on 2020 as We Look Forward to 2021” – Whisky News

As we embark upon a New Year and a new us, we wanted to follow our tradition of looking back at the year we’ve just left behind and the promise of the year ahead!

2020 was a year of many challenges but from those challenges came some of the best successes.  We learned new ways to interact with each other, found ways to be kinder to ourselves, to our neighbors, and even to strangers.  We forged new relationships at virtual events and had the opportunity to bring people from all over the world into our homes as we learned more about each other and the things we are passionate about.  Most of all we learned how important it was to make the most out of what was important to us.

At ImpEx we saw many blessings come out of 2020. As we grew and added new brands and expressions to our portfolio our team had the pleasure of virtually meeting with many of you to share a dram, some knowledge, great stories, and some laughs.  We came together as an industry and community to support each other and the industry itself.

These carefully curated relationships, events, and efforts helped to pave the way for what turned out to be quite a rewarding year for ImpEx, our brands, our suppliers, our distributors, and our customers.

We thank all of you for your continued support and look forward to seeing each other soon and feeling the energy that comes with in-person events and interactions!

~Sam Filmus, President and CEO
ImpEx Beverages

Kensington Malt Messenger Bulletin by Andrew Ferguson – Even More New Tastings, a Few New Products & Even More Deals! – Whisky News

Malt Messenger Bulletin

Even More New Tastings, a Few New Products & Even More Deals!

We are just over a week out from the annual KWM Year-End Inventory Sale. The shop will be closed on Monday, February 1 so we can count what is left in the store. We hold a sale every year on the weekend before to reduce what needs to be counted… But while the Year-End Inventory Sale is a week away, we have some deals on now!

We added 21 whiskies to the list of Sale Items this morning, with savings of between 20 and 30%. Some highlights include the Tamdhu 15 Year, Aberfeldy 21 Year, Bowmore 18 Year and the Craigellachie 13 Year, which is a steal at $56 (after a 30% discount).

We have also just opened up two new Virtual Whisky Tastings: A Very Belated Ardbeg Day with Bryan Simpson and the Cadenhead Original Collection with Cameron McGeachy. The sample sets for both tastings are poured and ready to go. Bryan will be joining us live from his home in Toronto, while Cameron will be joining us live from Campbeltown, on Scotland’s Kyntire Penninsula.

Connal Mackenzie, Sales Director for Adelphi and the Ardnamurchan Distillery, joined us live for a virtual tasting this past Saturday. I’ve been to the distillery, one of the most remote in Scotland, a few times over the last 5-6 years, and have been eagerly awaiting the first release of whisky. It did not disappoint. We have a bit of the very first whisky release, Ardnamurchan AD 09.20:01, available for sale. Limit 1 bottle per customer.

There are also some new Bourbons from Smooth Ambler, four different single barrels of Old Scout Bourbon. The Barrels have been bottled with proceeds from the sale of each bottle going to one of two charities supporting out of work hospitality workers: The Bartenders Benevolent Fund and the CPBA – or Canadian Professional Bartenders Association.

There are also some new whiskies from the High Coast Distillery in Sweden. We’ve actually had whisky from the distillery before, which used to trade under the name BOX. The BOX whiskies were good, but 500ml bottles and very expensive. The new range is all 700mls, and the prices are a lot better. The whiskies are also getting good reviews, and I can’t wait to try them.

I’ve also left our newest whisky and rum arrivals from Cadenheads, which were in the last Malt Messenger, up for browsing. They are a great value, and I thought they might tempt you to join us for Cameron’s tasting!

Finally, don’t forget to stay tuned for the Year-End Inventory Sale announcement, in about a week’s time.

As always, please let me know if you have any comments, questions or requests. In the event of a discrepancy in price, the Point of Sale at KWM will be taken as correct.

Sincerely,

Andrew Ferguson

INTRODUCING: THE ARDNAMURCHAN SINGLE MALT – AD 19.20.01

Of the dozens of new distilleries in Scotland, one of the ones I’m most excited about is Ardnamurchan. This western Highland Distillery is one of the most remote in Scotland, but the drive, not one for the faint of heart, is one of my favourites in Scotland. The setting is spectacular, located on the remote and rugged Ardnamurchan Peninsula. I’ve made the pilgrimage there at least twice, possibly three times, it is hard to be sure.

The driving force behind the distillery, is Managing Director Alex Bruce. Alex is better known for the Adelphi Selection independent bottlings. The Ardnamurchan Distillery and Adelphi Selection brands are owned by parent company Adelphi. Jim Swan consulted on the project, and while Alex didn’t want to produce the archetypal “Jim Swan” spirit, Alex did opt for longer fermentations and slow distillations.

Building started in 2013, with the distillery and its warehouses carved into the hillside. It is a miracle they managed to get all their equipment down the single track road. The first spirit trickled off the stills in 2014, and it was the following year that I paid my first visit. I was impressed with the distillery, and also the spirit coming off the stills. The distillery’s releases of Ardnamurchan Spirit over the last few years did not disappoint.

Six years and change on from the first distillation, the distillery has 10,000 casks maturing, and the first release of proper Ardnamurchan Single Malt Scotch Whisky is here. We don’t have a lot, so we are limiting sales to 1 per person. The distillery produces both peated and unpeated spirit, and the first release is a 50/50 marriage of these styles. We sampled it on Saturday, during our Ardnamurchan Virtual Tasting with Connal Mackenzie. It was a hit.

Ardnamurchan Single Malt AD/09.02.01 (Release 01) – 46.8% – 65% Ex Bourbon cask / 35% Sherry cask – 50/50 Split Peated & Unpeated – Producer Tasting Note: “Honeycomb, waxy peel, oyster shells, brine, strawberries with black pepper and bonfire embers.” – $105+gst Limit 1 per Customer

86pts Whisky Fun: Summary — Full Tasting note on our website: “Did anybody ever try to smoke gingerbread? The aftertaste is more on a classic citron/brine/smoke combo. Comments: this impressive young baby improves a lot with oxygen. Let them breathe! Can’t wait to try these when them too are eleven.

SGP:655 – 86 points.

SINGLE BARREL BOURBONS IN SUPPORT OF BARTENDERS

Sovereign Wine & Spirits, the Canadian importer for Smooth Ambler and Old Scout Bourbons, have selected four different single barrels of Old Scout, $5 from each of these four bottlings benefitting two different charities: the Bartender’s Benevolent Fund and the CPBA – or Canadian Professional Bartenders Association.

KWM will also donate $5/bottle sold between now and the end of March to the respective charities!

1. Old Scout Bourbon BBF1 – 56.4% – 5 Year – $98.99

2. Old Scout Bourbon BBF2 – 58.4% – 5 Year – $98.99

3. Old Scout Bourbon CFBA#1 – 58.1% – 5 Year – $98.99

4. Old Scout Bourbon CFBA#2 – 57.3% – 5 Year – $98.99

INTRODUCING: HIGH COAST WHISKY

We’ve actually seen these whiskies before, under the brand name BOX. They were good, if a little pricey given they were 500mls and rather young. Rebranded High Coast, the distillery opened in 2010 in 19th Century buildings. One of the most northerly distilleries in the World, the artic circle passes through the distillery.The distillery has a long fermentation, 72-96 hours, leading to a fruitier profile. It also has some of the coldest cooling water in the world, ranging from 2-6C. The distillery uses both peated and unpeated malt. The following 4 releases have just arrived, and will begin trickling in to the store this week:

1. High Coast ÄLV – 46% – 6 Years – ex-Bourbon – Unpeated – Producer Description: “Älv is the Swedish word for River. Outside our front door runs the beautiful river Ångermanälven, the heart of the High Coast region and essential to our distillery. We are able to make such elegant whisky thanks to the naturally cold, crystal clear water sourced from the river. Älv — a well-balanced soft single malt with vanilla tones. Älv is our most elegant whisky.” – Producer Tasting Note: “Aroma: Vanilla, Coconut, Sponge cake. Palate: Sweet vanilla, Mature pear, Apple. Finish: Long sweet vanilla notes.” – $96

2. High Coast BERG – 50% – PX Sherry Casks – Producer Description: “BERG – is a sherry matured whisky which has the same natural colour as the Nordingrå granite which can be seen protruding the dramatic landscape of the High Coast. The casks have previously held the flavoursome Pedro Ximénez sherry.” – Producer Tasting Note: “Aroma: Sultanas, gooseberry, honey, dark chocolate. Palate: Long and fruity with a spicy aftertaste. Finish: Rich dates and balanced honeyed sweetness.” – $105

3. High Coast Hav – 48% – 5 Years – Bourbon, Sweedish Oak & Hungarian Oak – 76,82% unpeated whisky and 23,18% of peated whisky – Producer Description: “Hav is the Swedish word for Sea. In the majestic landscape of a world heritage site, High Coast Distillery sits where the beautiful river Ångermanälven merges into the sea. Here, the river is just about to reach the coast and slowly disappear out into the world, just like our single malt whisky. The message Hav brings to the world is an expression of oak, with a touch of spice and a little northern hardiness.” – Producer Tasting Note: “Aroma: Fruity, Spicy, Cloves, Light Peat Reek, Nutmeg. Palate: Well balanced, Fruity, Spicy, Peat aroma. Finish: Oak, Cloves, Vanilla.” – $96

·     High Coast Timmer – 48% – 6 Years – Producer Description: “Peated single malt whisky matured in first fill Bourbon barrels. Timmer is our peated whisky, our humble tribute to the men and women who once lived and worked here. Those who risked their lives fighting icy cold waters as they steered the heavy logs downstream and kept warm by burning fires under the pale moon light.” – Producer Tasting Note: “Aroma: Peat, Vanilla. Palate: Campfire smoke, Rich Vanillia Sweetness. Finish: Citrus, Ash.” – $96

NEW WHISKIES FROM CADENHEAD

Cadenhead has put a pin in the Small Batch range and instead put out what they are calling the Original Collection at 46%. Our understanding is this was to stretch the amount of stock they could supplier retailers like us with. Here’s what’s coming!

New Whisky Magazine Issue Out Soon! – Whisky Magazine News

News on your new issue!

The latest edition of Whisky Magazine, issue #172, publishes this week, and is currently winging its way to your doorstep.

Our cover story brings together the best of British, with the story of Islay’s Bowmore whisky and the beloved Aston Martin coming together to create something truly unique. Chris White examines how the newest Black Bowmore came to be, and the circumstances surrounding this iconic partnership. While some may be surprised by an ancient Islay distillery and a luxury motor company joining forces, Chris explains how it might not be all that off-piste. One thing’s for sure: It seems the concept of ‘luxury whisky’ is changing once more…

We hope you enjoy this issue!

Glenkinchie 1990 20 Year Old at The Whisky Exchange – Scotch Whisky News

AVAILABLE NOW – SAVE £75

Scotland’s Lowland region has been – and, indeed, still is – home to some of the whisky world’s best-loved drams and distilleries, including Rosebank and, more recently, the much-lauded Daftmill. It’s also the home to Glenkinchie – an underappreciated distillery, too-often overlooked in favour of its arguably more famous neighbours.

This 20-year-old, bottled as part of Diageo’s Special Releases and matured in American-oak casks, is packed with a perfect sunny-day’s-worth of soft floral and green, grassy notes, backed up by sweet summer fruits, plenty of punchy spice and clean vanilla flavours.

A crisp and clean dram, this 1990-vintage is both a great example of the famed Lowland style of single malts, and an excellent way to explore a distillery which is something of a hidden gem – all for a rather good price.
