Palate: Very malty, creamy delivery which offers up a palate redolent of berry fruit, juicy toasted barley, cloves and butterscotch. A hint of manuka honey, hot-buttered-toast and dried apricot develop.

Finish: Medium length, with clove-studded oranges, creamy vanilla and peppermint.

Nikka Whisky Distillers Japan

Nikka Whisky
Taketsuru Pure Malt 12yr
Made from the blending of the two distilleries of Yoichi and Miyagikyo, this whisky was the pride of its creator Mastaka Taketsuru, founder of Nikka and father of Japanese whisky.

About the Distillery- YOICHI:

The Yoichi Distillery is located 50 kilometers west of Sapporo on the island of Hokkaido. It combines tradition with an aesthetic that only the Japanese can achieve.
Yoichi has an underground water source that is filtered through peat; the best water there is for whisky production. It has its own kiln topped with traditional pagoda-shaped chimneys. The pot stills are still heated by naked flame, a traditional method that has been abandoned by most of the Scottish distilleries.
The Yoichi distillery is located just one kilometer from the sea contributing to the complex character of this whisky, with its salty and slightly medicinal notes.

About the Distillery- MIYAGIKYO:

Miyagikyo is located on the island of Honshu, two hours by high-speed train to the northeast of Tokyo. Built in the foothills of the Miyagi prefecture, at the heart of a region famous for its waterfalls and many hot springs, the distillery is a true haven of peace. This site was chosen for its pure air and high humidity levels, ideal for ageing in barrels. The environment is similar to that of the Cairngorms region in the heart of Scotland. Miyagikyo, using large stills, produces a spirit
that is rich and fruity with elegant aromas.

Nose: Floral and balanced, with notes of plum jam, cut herbs, rhubarb pie, vanilla ice cream and cold coffee.

Palate: Sweet and oily, apple cider, cinnamon sticks, buttery toffee, almond, salty butter, custard.

Finish: Good length, creamy, notes of digestive biscuit and rhubarb crumble.
$65.95  750ml.

Yoichi Single Malt 15yr

Plymouth Gin Navy Strength 114 Proof
When gunpowder goes bang the ’proof’ of the alcohol strength is at least 100 proof (114 US proof) or 57% alcohol by volume. The gunpowder was used as the test for ’proving’ there was the expected level of alcohol in the clear liquid. Plymouth Gin Navy Strength first went to sea in 1793 with the Royal Navy. The Royal Navy Supply Offices ’Pussers’ needed to check what they were buying was what they had ordered. The Pussers would use gunpowder.

Some New Whiskies

Sheep Dip Amoroso Oloroso 1999 Whiskey
 Sheep Dip Oloroso Sherry Cask, a blended malt by master blender Richard Paterson, spent the first three years of its life in Bourbon Hogsheads in Scotland, then, like an East End gangster, took an extended holiday to Spain where it spent 9 years in Oloroso Sherry butts. The vastly different climate has had an amazing effect on the spirit, creating a concentrated, sweet blend that's oh so tasty.
Nose: Vanilla, caramel, butter, popcorn (like really sweet popcorn), caramelized sugar, icing sugar, almonds, cherries and tangerines.
Palate: Still got that vanilla cream coming through. Apples, marzipan and tangerines.
Finish: Slight peppery note comes in after the huge amounts of sweetness

Larceny Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
It is actually the story of the Old Fitzgerald brand, made famous by the late Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle Sr., that forms the historical basis for Larceny Bourbon. According to industry lore, John E. Fitzgerald had founded his distillery in Frankfort , KY shortly after the Civil War ended, making his Bourbon available only to steamship lines, rail lines and private clubs. This story was furthered by S.C Herbst, who owned the “Old Fitz” brand from the 1880’s through Prohibition, and “Pappy” Van Winkle, who purchased the brand during Prohibition and made it his signature label. However, it was revealed by Pappy’s granddaughter, Sally Van Winkle Campbell, in her 1999 book But Always Fine Bourbon—Pappy Van Winkle and the Story of Old Fitzgerald, that in fact John E. Fitzgerald was not a famous distiller at all. He was in reality a treasury agent who used his keys to the warehouses to pilfer Bourbon from the finest barrels. His discerning palate led those barrels to which he chose to help himself being referred to as “Fitzgerald barrels”.
Now Heaven Hill has launched Larceny, whose tagline—“A taste made famous by an infamous act”—sets history straight.
Aroma: Fresh bread and toffoo, with a note of butterscotch
Taste: Buttery caramel and honeyed notes, with a rich mouthfeel
Finish: Long, Gently sweet and savory

Laphroaig Cairdeas

Cairdeas means frienship in Gaelic,
Distinctively pale in color.  This annual limited-edition release is finally available in the U.S. Youthful, vibrant, and thumping, with the sea flowing through its veins. Coal tar, peat smoke, brine, seaweed, bright fruit (pear, tangerine) and soft vanilla all compete for attention.

Nose: Buttery and soft, with just a wisp of smoked kippers. There's only the slightest hint of the carbolic notes you find in the ten year old expression. It's a heavy butterscotch sweetness that runs the show, with a hefty portion of salted caramel.

Palate: Rounded and smooth, the butter spreads itself, melts and reveals Laproaig's signature smoky heart. It's pungent but not overpowering, a cushion of smoke rather than an enveloping cloud. But this is a big mouth-filling whisky; it just does it with finesse. That sweetness from the nose is heavily pronounced, and tastes remarkably like the crumbly fudge you find all over Islay.

Finish: Sweet, long and comforting.
$64.95  750ml.

Taste: vanilla, honey, toffee with some nice fruit, blueberries and black cherries. Chai spices - nutmeg, cinnamon and orange zest. Salty caramels. Tobacco. Gentle smoke!

Tapatio Tequila

After 75 years of distilling in Arandas and sales across Mexico, the venerable Tapatio Tequila has arrived in the US. 

YES - it's the same Tequila Tapatio you met & loved in Mexico!

Distiller Carlos Camarena has developed cult like status with Tequila lovers with the quality and integrity of his hard to obtain Tapatio brand. It stands alone with its pure classic flavor profile of 100% Blue Agave Tequila from the highlands. 

Why is it so loved? Tapatio sets the bar for the old authentic flavor that is disappearing in modern Tequilas. Respected author, Robert Plotkin, of Bar Media and a respected Tequila writer, wrote: “Wow, Tapatio...I'm already salivating”. 

The Camarena Family distills 100% estate grown blue agaves. Many know the family distillery through El Tesoro and other custom Tequilas. Charbay’s father and son team distilled their Tequila there. That’s the friendship that brought Tapatio to America. 

True Tequila aficionados and star bartenders make the trek to Camarena’s La Altena Distillery in Arandas as a right of passage into the old Tequila world. Enlightened by Tapatio’s intriguing flavor profile, many tried to find a way to get it in the US. It took the friendship & trust of two distilling families to make it happen.
