Our Most Stacked Spirits Offer Yet

Hello Collectors,

As we wish farewell to 2022, we wanted to go out on a high note. And while we were surprised by just how high a note the spirits hit this year, it makes sense. This is a red-hot category among collectors right now, and between our market pricing (rather than wishful thinking, as most retailers price by) and our long list of consignors, we’re able to offer some enviable spirits lists. Appropriately, we conclude the year with one more: our most stacked yet. Not everything is listed below, so be sure to click through to the store to see the full list!

Today’s offer is largely Bourbon and Rye, but we’ll start with some rare imports. We’re thrilled to showcase three different special bottlings of Macallan. The first is a 23 Year single cask selection, chosen for K&L by Douglas Laing, which highlights the magic of Macallan’s subtly honeyed single malt flavors with the structure of extended barrel contact and the nuanced complexity of time. Next are two red-hot releases: the Harmony Intense Arabica (inspired by Ethiopian Arabica coffee flavors) and the Sir Peter Blake (a 1967 single malt celebrating the English artist). We also have one of the most collectible whiskeys from Canada in a while: Caribou Crossing. This is an exciting new venture from Sazerac, marking their first single barrel offering from our northern neighbors.

Moving down to Bourbon County, we’ve restocked on the usual suspects: George T. Stagg, E.H. Taylor, Eagle Rare, and Blanton’s. We also have collectible favorites like Stagg Jr., Old Fitzgerald, and Michter’s (10 Year Rye and Toasted Barrel Sour Mash). For wheated Bourbon fans, we have a great little selection from Weller: 12 Year, Full Proof, Antique 107, CYPB, and Special Reserve. There are a few other gems in this list, so take a look. Suffice to say: whiskey lovers will find plenty to love this week.

And, of course, we have plenty of Pappy Van Winkle. We’re thrilled to return with several bottles each of the 10 Year, 12 Year, and 15 Year. For one or two very lucky people, we’ve got a single bottle each of the 20 Year and 23 Year. If you’re a Bourbon fan and never experienced the complexity and singular character of a Van Winkle spirit: carpe diem.
