BLADE AND BOW KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY

Bulleit Rye Whiskey

85 Points - Malt Advocate, May 2011 "No age statement, but it includes 4 to 7 year old whiskeys. The mashbill is 95% rye -- much higher than most standard rye whiskeys out there. It's brisk, vibrant, and loaded with spice (crisp mint, warming cinnamon, cocoa, hint of anise). Fruit -- ripe nectarine, apricot, golden raisin -- drizzled with maple syrup. Dry oak rounds out the finish. Bold enough for cocktails. Mature enough to drink neat (or on the rocks)." -John Hansell

Highland Single Malt Scotch 94 Points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2010 "Great to see French casks that actually complement a whisky - so rare! An exercise in outrageously good sweet-dry balancing" Aroma: Lime and orange rind, sultanas and dates give a rich fruity flavour laced with tantalising spices of coconut and nutmeg. Taste: Ginger, nutmeg and toasted almonds bring a deep, warming taste interwoven with a syrupy lemon meringue and honeycomb middle. Finish: Long and lusciously sweet finish with lemon zest, white chocolate, vanilla and traces of ginger and nutmeg.

Glenmorangie SPIOS Single Malt Scotch 750mL
"The ninth annual release in our acclaimed Private Edition series, Glenmorangie Spìos is the first Glenmorangie ever to be fully matured in American ex-rye whiskey casks. Full-bodied and savoury, its innovative character was inspired by the bygone elegance of America’s golden whiskey era, when American rye whiskey was fêted in the country’s most prestigious saloons. Glenmorangie Spìos (Scots Gaelic for ‘spice’ and pronounced ‘spee-oss’) recalls the spirit’s elegant past, inviting rye’s rare notes of cinnamon and clove to shine through in the Highland Distillery’s uniquely smooth spirit, for a single malt whisky of sophistication and subtle spice." -The Distillery

Highland Single Malt Scotch 94 Points - Jim Murray's Whiskey Bible "[Nose - 24] perhaps the most enigmatic aroma of them all: delicate yet assertive, sweet yet dry, young yet oaky: a malty poem; [Taste - 22] flaky oakiness throughout but there is an impossibly complex toastiness to the barley which seems to suggest the lightest hint of smoke; [Finish - 24] amazingly long for such a light dram, drying from the initial sweetness but flaked almonds amid the oakier, rich cocoa notes; [Overall Balance - 24] remains one of the great single malts, a whiskey of uncompromising aesthetic beauty from the first enigmatic whiff to the last teasing and tantalizing gulp. Complexity at its most complex." - Jim Murray

Good light gold, pale straw color. Fresh, medium-bodied, steely with floral notes and a touch of peat. Light, fresh,slightly smoky with oily creaminess. Sweet finish, with good length." -The Distillery

Glenmorangie 12 Year Old Lasanta Extra Sherry Cask Matured 92 Proof Single Malt Highland Scotch Whisky 750 mL

"Elegant but full bodied this whisky has spent ten years maturing in American white oak ex-bourbon casks before being extra-matured for a further two years in Oloroso and PX Sherry casks from Jerez in Spain. "Lasanta is Gaelic for warmth and passion, a reminder not just of the Spanish provenance of these Oloroso sherry butts, but also a reflection of this expressions lusciously soft texture and deep, enticingly sweet aroma.Non chill-filtered for additional aroma and mouthfeel.." - Glenmorangie Tasting Notes: Aroma: Warm spices mix with smooth chocolate covered raisins, honeycomb and caramel toffee. Taste: Deliciously sweet sherry flavoured sultanas, orange segments, walnuts and butterscotch combine to create complex warm spices. Finish: Long and satisfying finish with spiced orange and chocolate covered hazelnuts.
