Camut Calvados Pays d'Auge Réserve de Semainville 25 ans d'âge

This bottling shows warm, baked apple flavors with delicious layers of oak and honey. The finish lasts and lasts, and even at 25 years of age the apple fruit is still intact and quite succulent. There are older Calvados from the estate, but to me this is the apex of fruit and oak with neither side overwhelming the other. This is a true experience and a wonderfully rare treat. John Rankin

Camut Pommeau de Domaine de Semainville Apéritif Normand

Looking for something new to try before or after your dinner? How about a Pommeau? Pommeau is the traditional blend of Calvados and unfermented apple cider that hardly ever makes its way out of Normandy. Very similar to Cognac’s Pineau des Charentes, Pommeau combines the fruity unfermented apple sugars spiked with a touch of aged brandy. In the fall it makes a wonderful apéritif, but for those afraid of sugary pre-dinner drinks, it would be delicious with cheese, and out-of-this-world with deserts featuring apples. Camut makes what is likely the best Calvados in the grand Cru “Pays d’Auge,” so it’s no surprise that their Pommeau is the best we have ever tasted.  John Rankin

Camut NV Calvados Pays d'Auge 12 ans d'âge

At 12 years old, this Calvados shows extremely youthful and vibrant apple, caramel, and sweet cream aromas. These marry well with perfectly integrated spice and oak notes that add depth and intrigue. This is an absolute treat and is a big step up in complexity from the Camut estate's wildly delicious 6-year Calvados. Tim Gagnon

Camut NV Calvados Pays d'Auge 6 ans d'âge

We have a wonderful customer who drinks a fair share of brandy and prefers the six year expression to the more exclusive bottlings--his preference is not unfounded. Camut 6 has delicious, green apple fruit with a hint of vanilla. A touch of oak smoke is there, but fruit is really the focus of this spirit. Six years may not sound like a long time, but trust us, it’s plenty. John Rankin

Capovilla Grappa di Bassano 750ml

Capovilla spirits are truly labors of love. The Bassano bottling consists of pommace from a variety of grapes from Vicenza. The secret to the rich, broad flavors is the rare still that Vittorio Gianni Capovilla uses. Called a bain-marie still, it heats the pommace at low temperatures to maintain the grape flavors and not create the offensive, alcoholic tones that mars many more commercial Grappa productions. We are extremely happy that Jan d'Amore has decided to import these spirits, and strongly recommend that Grappa and Eau-de-vie fans try them. JR

Grappa fans will note the extreme purity and freshness of the spirit and applaud Jan d'Amore for bringing it to the American market. John Rankin

Chateau de Briat 2000 Bas Armagnac Bacco

The 2000 Bacco fully exudes the traditional Château de Briat house style: decadent, yet complex and structured, with a focus on new oak. Again, from the diary of John Rankin: On the nose it is luscious with sweet caramel, the chewy soft kind, and orange zest rising from the glass. On the palate it is rich and silky – very drinkable – with a touch of spice and a sugary milk chocolate finish. With this flavor profile and the château’s affinity for new oak, this would be a fantastic crossover spirit for Bourbon lovers! Tim Gagnon

Cyril Zangs NV Apple Brandy Double Zero

This phenomenal, clear apple brandy is the result of a collaboration between the great cider producer Cyril Zangs and Calvados distiller Jean Roger Groult. Over 30 varieties of apples are first cellared for a few months to concentrate sugars and flavors, and then gently pressed into a cider that ages on it's lees for 10 months. Jean Roger Groult then distills the cider on his tiny direct fire still, making very precise cuts to isolate the heart of the spirit, with a resting time of a few weeks between the first and second distillation to further concentrate and enhance the flavors. There is wonderful texture and weight to this un-aged brandy, with the purity of the apple notes complimented with baking spice, hints of cinnamon, and a savory, umami character of earth and dried foliage. An exceptional and unique spirit from Normandy. Oskar Kostecki

Domaine Boingnères 2001 Bas-Armagnac Folle Blanche

Boingneres is one of the legendary names in Armagnac, and along with Laberdolive produces some of the most complex and beautiful spirits in France. This 2001 vintage is made from 100% Folle Blanche, the rarest of the grapes used in the production of Cognac and Armagnac, lending a beautiful floral note to the spirit. This Armagnac has it all, combining fruit, spice and floral notes in an intense melange of flavor and texture, with density and incredible length. Dried fruit, plum, apricot, dried yellow flowers, baking spice, a hint of leather, dried tea leaves, walnuts, and a touch of balsamic are all present here, creating a spirit that is much greater than the sum of its parts. Bottled at 49% ABV. Oskar Kostecki

Domaine Du Tertre 1997 Calvados

Of the countless wonderful spirits I've had the opportunity to taste this year, Domaine du Tertre Calvados was one of the most memorable. Creating a unique style of Calvados, Tertre is run by by two brothers, Michel and Hubert Havard, and the main focus of production at the estate is apple cider. Their excrutiatingly tiny batches of Calvados are distilled on a travelling single column still with 10 plates, after the apples have been fermented for over 6 months with all indigenous yeast. It is this long fermentation and old school production methods that leads to the intense and rustic style of this Calvados. This is a single es-cognac cask, bottled at a cask strength of 50% abv. Flavors of baked apple, apple peel, dried orange peel, baking spices, nutmeg, mint, dried leaves, and pronounced rancio notes forest floor, mushroom, and balsamic all interweave on the beautifully complex palate. A fresh apple quality emerges on the long, long finish. This is an absolute powerhouse Calvados, and a perfect ending to many a satisfying meal. Oskar Kostecki

Dudognon 10 Year Old Cognac Grande Champagne 'Reserve'

The Dudognon Reserve is one of the best values in Cognac. Made without additives or coloring, it's a pale gold color with subtle citrus and white fruit aromas. The palate is clean and long with tea, earth, citrus and spice. Far superior to the brand-name VS or VSOP blends and really worth trying. John Rankin

Esperance 1998 Armagnac

Domaine d'Esperance is run by Claire de Montesquiou, who revived her family's centuries old tradition of distilling Armagnac when she purchased the small domaine in the early 1990s. This 1998 vintage single-cask offering is made from Baco 22A, the only hybrid grape allowed in the appellation, and is a rich and textured, though not sacrificing balance or poise. Dried fruit, prune, toffee and spice, with more savory notes of walnut, forest floor and leather intermingle on the dense and complex palate. A wonderful after dinner Armagnac. Oskar Kostecki

Huard 2002 Calvados Le Pertyer Hors d'Age

Our Chambers Street selection of Calvados was distilled in 2002 and was aged in a barrel that previously held cider and Pommeau (cider and Calvados blended together). From the diary of John Rankin: The barrel that we bought has candied apple and toffee cream flavors and is surprisingly juicy and fruit-forward, even with a fair amount of age and alcohol percentage. It shows the influence of Pommeau and cider more than barrel, along with richness and a long finish of exotic citrus and dark-toned flowers. Tim Gagnon

This is a collaboration from PM Spirits and L'Encantada, an independent bottler of great repute specializing in armagnac. Unearthing barrels or demijohns that have often been forgotten, from small producers who may or may not be distilling anymore. This particular vatting is from four casks, including barrels from  1989 and 1987 of 100% Folle Blanche from Lous Pibous. This is a hearty Armagnac, incorporating notes of dried fruit and flowers with a muscular spice character. Hints of rancio interweave with notes of leather and smoke, making this a perfect introduction to French brandy for whiskey lovers. Bottled at 46.8% ABV. Oskar Kostecki

Montreuil NV Calvados du Pays d'Auge Reserve

Montreuil is a collaboration between Calvados importer and guru Charles Neal and Patrice Giard – heir to the bucolic Giard estate in the hamlet of Montreuil. Cows (primarily used for their milk) provide the majority of the farm’s revenue, but the property has made quite a name for itself for their library of aged Calvados still in barrel that will be released under the Giard label. The Montreuil label represents barrels averaging 7 years old that provide rich, apple fruit with a touch of wood vanillin and toffee sweetness. A great value for sipping, but also not too dear to use as a stand-in for American applejack in classic cocktails like a Jack Rose:2 ounces apple brandy or calvados, ¾ ounce lime or lemon juice, and ¾ ounce grenadine; served up.  John Rankin

Neversink Spirits New York Apple Brandy 375ml

This exquisitely clear apple brandy comes in one of the cutest printed packages in the store, but that shouldn’t be the only reason for you to buy it. The fact is that this is one of the most delicious ways to experience New York’s abundant apple crop’s flavors. The apples growing on Neversink’s organic farm were selected for their high acid and high tannic character (not great for eating, but essential to creating delicious ciders and spirits). The mash is then twice distilled which makes for a bright, delicate spirit that truly showcases the quality of the raw ingredients used. In Europe, brandies like this are enjoyed neat after dinner but current cocktail creators are experimenting with all sorts of uses: the most simple being a touch of sugar and a squeeze of citrus for an apple-infused take on a Sour.

Orchard Hill NV Ten66 375 ml

Orchard Hill was started in 2005 by all-around spirits guru, Karl du Hoffman, in the Hudson Valley town of New Hampton, NY. They focus on two products here - cider and pommeau - and we were thrilled to be able to get our hands on the latter. Inspired by the famed Normandy elixir of calvados and non-alcoholic sweet cider, Karl wanted to make a product that was true to the apples of the Hudson Valley yet echoed centuries of pommeau production in France. Aptly named Ten66 after the Norman Invasion of England in the year 1066, this is a blend of 3-10 year-old apple brandy and cider of various vintages from 2005-2012 that have been aged in used French oak barrels from wineries on Long Island (that held Merlot or Chardonnay in their previous life). Apple butter, apple cobbler, caramel, toasted nutmeg, and baked cherry come to mind on the nose which hint at what is found on the palate. It is juicy with deeper notes of caramel and spice. This is delicious served slightly chilled as an aperitif but would be equally good with a cheese course after dinner! Tim Gagnon

Paul Beau NV Cognac Grande Champagne Hors d'Age

Located in the heart of Cognac's premier cru "Grand Champagne," the Beau family has a long history of making exceptional artisan Cognacs. The Beaus use old wooden barrels and a majority of Ugni Blanc to facilitate a clear expression of terroir. This creates an absolutely lovely spirit that has been aged an average of thirty years, well over the requirements to label "Hors d'Age." The perfect after-dinner drink with a balance of dried fruit and very nice minerality. JR

Ravignan 2008 (Bottled 2018) Bas-Armagnac

We've been thoroughly enamored by the deep, rustic, and intense  Armagnacs of Domaine du Ravignan, and we were very happy to see Charles Neal import a younger vintage from them. I enjoy younger French brandy for its exuberance and primary character. This 2008 shows a beautiful balance of fruit and spice notes, with dried peach, peach skin, dried apricot, apricot jam, lavender, yellow flowers, dried leaves, tea leaves, and salted toffee all showing wonderfully on the nose and palate. The palate is quite intense and vibrant, combining both brightness and depth. Bottled at 50% ABV. Oskar Kostecki

Through the Grapevine Cognac Fine Bois Remi Landier Lot 73

I am astounded by the freshness that this old Cognac carries. A single cask from the outlying appellation of Fin Bois, this was distilled in 1973 by the Landier family from grapes grown in clay-limestone soils. It has a beautiful, lifted aromatic profile, with notes of citrus, tangerine, orange zest, orange marmalade, white flowers, apple, pear, and darker aromas of plum and toffee. There is a hint of rancio and baking spice, and while you can feel the age of the spirit, the roundness it carries on the palate and its phenomenal length, there is also a vibrancy to the fruit character that I've never experienced in a Cognac this old. A truly unique expression. Bottled at 47.8% ABV. Oskar Kostecki

The Chauchet-Voyer family has been farming vineyards and making Cognac in the limestone-rich terroir of Grande Champagne for the past five generations. This spirit comes from a single barrel filled in 1993 and aged for 25 years. Distilled on the lees, this is a powerful and broad-shouldered Cognac, with great density on the palate and notes of baked apples, poached pears, leather, baking spice, apricot marmalade, dried cherries, a hint of forest floor and balsamic. A beautiful expression of the richness that Cognac can deliver without the use of artificial color, added sugar, or boisé. Bottled at 45.9%. Oskar Kostecki

Gin

Cotswolds Dry Gin

A recent arrival to the US market! Named for the rural area outside of London in where the distillery is located, Cotswolds Gin went into production in 2014. Nine botanicals undergo 18-hour maceration in a base distillate of wheat and these include juniper, coriander, bay, fresh citrus peel, and black pepper, among others. It is beautifully aromatic – juniper heavy, with cool overtones of balsam, mint, rosemary, cucumber, and lime – but maintains a classic, dry profile on the palate with added lift seemingly from the fresh citrus peel. Green herbs and black pepper creep in on the finish. Very balanced and long, this makes a killer Martini, and it is also un-chillfiltered so it clouds up when cold! Tim Gagnon

Greenhook Ginsmiths American Dry Gin 750ml

This bottle represents the Gin obsession of Brooklyn native Steven DeAngelo. His distillery is located in the once industrial, now artisanal, north-Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint. Here he uses a still with vacuum technology that allows distillation to occur at a lower temperature. This cooler process results in a gin with surprisingly fresh aromatics and a very bright green coriander note. These flavors are very well expressed in a gin and tonic, but also work well with other herbal spirits like Amaro. John Rankin

High Wire Hat Trick Botanical Gin 750

This is what I would call a new American classic. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but seemingly pays homage to some London Dry gins that we all know and love, while adding a little something extra. The base spirit is distilled from organic corn, and although all the ingredients aren’t listed, they include crushed juniper berries, lavender, fresh lemon, and orange peels with balancing botanicals of licorice root, angelica root, coriander, and cardamom. On the nose it opens incredibly bright with a citrusy, peppery kick. With time, aromas of blossom, celery, and anise come forward. The palate shows wonderful restraint and allows the roots to balance everything out with a warming cinnamon-like spice, a hint of citrus, and a long, woodsy finish. This would work in almost any gin-based cocktail imaginable (I’d prefer a Martini), and is also fantastic sipped neat. Tim Gagnon

Mahon Spanish Gin 1 Liter

Xoriguer gin hails from Mahon on the island of Menorca in Spain and one of only three gins (along with Plymouth Gin and London Dry Gin) to have a geographic designation. Gin has a rich history on Menorca dating back to British occupation during the 18th century and is still made with the same traditional methods. This gin is made in wood-fired pot stills from a base spirit of grape distillate (as opposed to the more common grain-based distillate) and is rested in American oak barrels before bottling. This process gives this spirit decidedly fruity and floral aromatics as well as a softer, citrusy palate. For lovers of gin and tonics, try this for your next experiment! Tim Gagnon

New York Distilling Company Dorothy Parker American Gin 750ml

And now for something completely different… Our friends at New York Distilling under the Brooklyn Queens Expressway are making some of New York’s most delicious gins.  The Dorothy Parker, named for the legendarily sharp-tongued wit of New York’s Algonquin Round Table, boasts decidedly American style with un-traditional botanicals like hibiscus and cinnamon.  Of course we are talking gin here, so there’s a nice dry juniper kick as well.  I think that this makes for a very interesting twist on a gin and tonic.  More adventurous home bartenders may want to use it to give the classic gin cocktails a new angle.  John Rankin

I am completely smitten with this Amaro. The primary ingredient is blood orange from Sicily with the bitter, herbal components taking somewhat of a backseat, and the result is a brighter, more feminine, style of Amaro that is complex and delicious. It is floral, fruit-forward, mineral, and long with red berry fruits and herbs building on the finish. This is simply a fantastic after dinner drink. Tim Gagnon

Disclaimer: This is an Amaro for adventurous drinkers! Beginning with a rich red wine base, the production process involves a 6-month infusion with local flowers, herbs, and roots and the only sweetener used is a local tree sap. This yields an intensely bitter and dark spirit with a piney, earthy finish. I find it to be incredibly compelling and energizing, especially after a gluttonous meal, but it isn’t for the faint of heart! Tim Gagnon

Forthave Spirits Amaro Marseille 375ml

The Forthave Marseille Amaro is truly unique affair. Based on a medieval recipe of four thieves who, as the story goes, traded their secret concoction for clemency. It is at once soft and assertive. Eucalyptus, mint, cinnamon, dried lemon peel, dried tea leaves, and honey dominate the nose, while the palate further reveals star anise, lemon extract, a touch of vanilla, and cloves. Marseille uses raw honey as a sweetener, and similar to something like Amaro dell'Erborista by Varnelli, it gives it a wonderful, soft and lush texture. Perfect as an after dinner digestif.

La Quintinye Vermouth Extra Dry .375

A delicious vermouth with a base of select white wines from the Southwestern France, Pineau des Charentes Blanc, and 27 different botanicals. A beautiful golden color, it is heady, floral, and intensely aromatic with underlying currents of licorice and anise. It is incredibly dry, but maintains a balance on the palate and it is here that its Pineau des Charentes roots show. This is perfect for sipping or in a more adventurous Martini.  Tim Gagnon

Michelberger Mountain Krauterspirituose 750ml

This is a delicious, bracing, alpine-style aperitif from the heart of Berlin. In order to make this invigorating, herbal cocktail, Michelberger combines lemon peel, juniper, coriander, peppermint, lemon balm, cardamom, fennel, sage, anise seed, orris root, thyme and caraway seed in a solution of beet sugar spirit. This is double distilled in traditional pot stills, and then mellowed in earthenware pots before being bottled. Served ice-cold, this would be a great way to start a dinner or end a night.

Miro Vermouth de Reus Extra Dry 1 L

From the famed vermouth-producing city of Reus, just southwest of Barcelona, Miro is just what I’ve been looking for to make the ultimate Martini. Made from a base wine of Airen and Macabeo with herbs and wormwood sourced from the Pyrenees Mountains, it is exceptionally dry (no sugar added!) and exhibits all of the piquant, herbal, and briny notes of olives. This is no doubt the reason it works so well in a Martini, but there are compelling wormwood-forward notes along with a touch of spice, bracing acidity, and minerality that make it a perfect aperitif. Seriously delicious! Tim Gagnon

Rovero Barolo Chinato 500ml

Chinato – an aromatized and fortified wine usually based on Barolo – has created quite a stir around the store. We’ve always loved Cappellano’s, and tried a few others here and there, but an offer of many vintage Chinatos illuminated the fact that these spirits show quite well when cellared like their mother-wine Barolo. The intense, bitter, quinine bark flavors mellow and become a more harmonious part of the drink. Also, like world class dessert wines, the sugar becomes less “sweet” tasting and shows more rich-bodied character. Which brings us to Rovero’s delicious Barolo Chinato. For under $35 a bottle, I’d highly recommend stashing a couple of these away for a later after-dinner surprise. It may not be the Technicolor, herbal rollercoaster that Cappellano is, but it’s a very fine stand-in at an incredible price. John Rankin

St. Agrestis New York Amaro 750ml

Sommeliers Nicholas Finger and Fairlie McCollough started St. Agrestis in 2014 after a three month trip through Italy solidified their love for traditional, regional Amari. Everything is done in their warehouse in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY from the maceration of organic herbs, roots, and citrus in neutral base spirit to the short-term aging in whiskey barrels (sourced from the Van Brunt distillery in Brooklyn), and the addition of organic cane sugar followed by bottling and labeling. The sugar rounds out the classic bitter components of this Amaro making for an easy going yet complex and balanced digestif that begs to be consumed after dinner this Thanksgiving! Tim Gagnon

Terres Rouges Salers Apéritf La Bounoux 750ml

Salers is a fascinating elixir from the Massif Centrale. The bark of yellow gentian is steeped in alcohol with a secret recipe of other herbs to create an earthy beverage with tons of local character. Yellow gentian grows best at high elevation on volcanic soils, as is the case for gentian grown around the Auvergne and used here. Locally, Salers in enjoyed with ice as an apéritif, but there are many modern cocktail recipes that call for it as well. JR

Varnelli Amaro "Sibilla" 1 Liter

Named after the impressive mountain range in the Southwestern corner of the Marche, this spirit is a must-try for Amaro fans. The flavor profile definitely leans toward the drier, more herbaceous end of the spectrum and will seem quite bitter if you are used to Averna or Montenegro. The botanicals are wood smoked before maceration which adds a degree of complexity seldom found in Amari. Mountain honey is used sparingly to balance the bitter flavors. I have found Sibillia to be a delicious digestive, but also quite delightful at the shore when mixed with tonic and an orange rind. JR

Varnelli Amaro dell'Erborista 1 Liter

This is the most powerful Amaro I have ever tried. To drink it is to experience a brisk and bracing shock of mountain roots and herbs. The flavors are intense enough to make one’s whole mouth tingle, and the experience lasts for several minutes. As a warning, it must be said that this tonic is brutally dry, rich, and smoky. One could tackle a glass neat after dinner, or a splash could go a long way in creating unique cocktails. This tonic is made with botanicals that are smoked prior to maceration, and mountain honey is used (extremely sparingly) as a sweetener. For the adventurous there is nothing else quite like it! JR

Varnelli L'Anice Secco Speciale 1 Liter 46%

In Italy Varnelli is eponymous with this delicious Anise liqueur. Locally, Varnelli is splashed over espresso. The bottle says secco, but there is a touch of sweetness to the spirit that tempers the intensity of the anise flavor. This stuff makes your average Sambuca look like overly sugary candy water. There is a secret proprietary method for distilling the aniseed that remarkably preserves the anise’s medicinal quality and depth of flavor. The spirit is not bitter, but is still reported by the distillery to aid with digestion. JR

War & Rust Quinquina Aperitif Wine 500ml

A beautiful American aromatized wine in the style of Italian Chinato, I've been a huge fan of this quinquina for a while, and it's had a place at my Thanksgiving table for a number of years now. Oskar KosteckiA little from the wine-maker: Originally I took Barolo Chinato for inspiration, and cinchona bark remains one of the main ingredients, but in both recipe and method, it has become something different than chinato. To make it, I arrest fermentation by adding brandy when there is still sugar in the must. This makes for a slightly different sweetness level each harvest, so I always have to adjust the the bittering agents, which gets me tinkering with the other ingredients, so the recipe changes a bit every year. I use about 20 different herbs, barks, roots and botanicals including: cinchona bark, gentian, wormwood, anise, myrrh, Virginia juniper, rose petal, chamomile, and ginger root.I started it while working in Sonoma County, so it was originally made from Pinot Noir, and I made a half barrel for the first batch. It has followed me around in my day jobs, so these days there is a lot of Cabernet Franc, but there's Tannat, there's Petit Verdot, there's even Petit Manseng. I leave in the stems, as their flavor seems to work with the whole. It now has more than enough Virginia fruit that I could legally label it Virginia, but since there are over 20 herbs and botanicals, I don't bother with a place name. It is a pseudo-solera in that I have a mother batch, bottle some of it, make more at the next harvest, and then add it to the mother. It has wine going back to 2007. I don't filter it. If it ferments in the bottle one day, maybe I will change that, but I'm pretty sure that would take something away. Ben Jordan

El Dorado 5 year Guyana Rum Demerara

This is a great rum for cocktails and casual sipping. The Demerara molasses gives a bit of extra body to a very fairly priced bottle. I’d recommend using this for a delightful winter-time Daiquiri. The 5 years spent in Bourbon barrels gives a kiss of coconut and vanilla, but doesn’t leave the rum tasting tannic or overly oaky. John Rankin

Habitation Velier Forsyths WP 502 57% (PRE - Arrives Fri. Oct 12

A very aromatic white molasses-based rum, distilled on the Forsyth double-retort pot still at Worthy Park distillery. By isolating particular yeast strains and implementing an incredibly long (3 weeks!) fermentation, this particular mark of Worthy Park is incredibly effusive, clocking in at very high congener (a chemical constituent which gives aromas) level. Rich and quite oily on the palate, this rum shows beautiful aromas of citrus fruit, lime zest, banana, vanilla, and a hint of the classic Jamaican petrol funk. Great on its own, I can't wait to see what it does in a daiquiri. Oh my, the very idea has chills running down my spine. Oskar Kostecki

Habitation Velier Foursquare 2013 64% (PRE - Arrives Fri. Oct 12

Richard Seale of Foursquare Distillery on Barbados is a master of blending pot and column distillates, and indeed all rums produced under the official Foursquare label are such combinations. Finding the right balance between the two has been done with great skill and care, and in the past few years Foursquare has emerged as one of the leading rum brands in the world (we're obviously talking quality here, not quantity). But here we have a different animal: the only commercial example I have ever seen of a 100% pot-distilled Foursquare. Wow is this intense. Aged for two years in Cognac cask and bottled at a whopping 64%, this is a brawny rum, full of character and flavor. Notes of leather, baking spice, raisin, dried apricot, baked apple, and vanilla are all present, along with a meaty and rich mouthfeel. If you've enjoyed the official Foursquare offerings, this will be right up your alley; a step further down the rabbit-hole. Oskar Kostecki

Habitation Velier Last Ward 2009 64% (PRE - Arrives Fri. Oct 12

Back in 2014 I went to a blending seminar for Mount Gay. We were presented with various marks of rum, both from column stills and pot stills, and asked to approximate the blend for the new Mount Gay Black Barrel, which was just released in the US market. It was my first time tasting the difference between pot and column still rum and I was astounded. The depth of flavor and exuberance extracted by the pot still was amazing, and the column still distillate was, by comparison, muted, lacking discernible flavor, and quite boring. I proceeded to construct a blend of mostly pot still Mount Gay (all I really wanted to drink), adding a tiny bit of the column still distillate, and duly failed the assignment. I was dismayed to learn that the "proper" blend should have been the other way around, mostly dull column-distilled rum, and a small proportion of pot still to give some flavor. I'm very happy I finally have the chance to drink some pure pot-distilled Mount Gay!

Mount Gay is the oldest commercial rum distillery in the world, and has been in operation since at least 1703. Since the early 1900s it has been owned by the Ward family, though the commercial rights to Mount Gay rum have been owned by Remy Cointreau since 1989. The last owner-distiller at Mount Gay, Frank Ward, passed away a few years ago, and this bottle has been named as a tribute to him. It is an incredible distillate, exploding with flavors of dried fruit, figs, apricots, baking spices, caramel and cocoa. Fruit-forward and quite lush, it drinks incredibly well at the full proof of 64% ABV. A beauty. Oskar Kostecki

Habitation Velier Worthy Park 2007 59% (PRE - Arrives Fri. Oct 12

The 2007 Worthy Park takes everything the 2005 has and magnifies it. Rich and full-bodied, this is a tremendous rum, almost overloading the senses. Waves of leather, vanilla, caramel, petrol, banana, overripe pineapple, and apricot wash over the nose and palate. Bottled at 59%, you might want to reach for a small ice cube, but at the same time, diluting any of the flavors of this powerhouse would be such a shame. Oskar Kostecki

Velier Caroni 2000 Trinidad Rum 55%

A very special bottling of vintage rum from Caroni, the now-legendary Trinidadian distillery that closed its doors in 2002. This is sourced from the cache bought up by Luca Gargano and Velier in 2004, and has continued aging in Trinidad under tropical conditions. Most long-aged rum available on the market these days is sourced from warehouses in Northern Europe, where it undergoes a much gentler maturation, at a rate of evaporation that is around 1 to 2 percent per year. This 17-year-old rum, spending its entire life aging in the heat and humidity of the Caribbean, experiences a loss of about 80% before it is bottled, resulting in one of the most deep and complex rums I've ever had the pleasure to taste. Notes of wood spice, cedar, mahogany, pipe tobacco, dried flowers, potpourri, dried stone fruit, grilled peaches, the scent of old houses, engine oil, and a slight rancio, varnishy quality are all interwoven on the nose and palate. The finish is long and satisfying. This rum drinks fantastically at the high proof. Oskar Kostecki

Velier Clairin Sajous Sugarcane Rum Haiti 54.3%

Michal Sajous makes this wonderful clairin in the small town of Saint-Michel de L'Attalaye, situated on a plateau surrounded by mountains, about a hundred kilometers north from Port-au-Prince. He grows several different varieties of cane, with the Cristalline being used for this particular bottling. Fermented in stainless steel with all indigenous yeast, this a beautifully mineral expression of fresh-pressed sugarcane juice rum, more effusive and intense than anything I've had from Martinique or Guadaloupe, but still carrying a similar flavor profile. Perfumes of dried flowers, tropical fruit, and the hallmark green grassiness is supported by the more herbal and dense aromas of tea tree oil and eucalyptus. There is an undercurrent of salinity, and the pronounced acidity keeps this fresh and lifted. Drink this neat or make the most phenomenal Ti' Punch. Oskar Kostecki

Velier Clairin Vaval Sugarcane Rum Haiti 48.8%

Fritz Vaval makes this completely unique clairin in the village of Cavaillon, on the southern coast of Haiti. The distillery Arawaks was founded after the war by Fritz's father, and today they have 20 hectares of a variety of sugarcane called Madame Meuze, farmed without the use of any fertilizers or chemicals. Fermentation takes up to 5 days and is done using only indigenous yeast. Vaval uses a home-made pot still that is steam powered (using a repurposed locomotive engine) by burning bagasse, the leftover pulp once the cane is crushed. The Vaval clairin is, for me, the most singular of the three. The more typical grassy and green notes of sugarcane juice mingle more the more esoteric prescence of anise, cinnamon, lemongrass and citrus peel. Oskar Kostecki

Wigle Landlocked Spiced (like spiced rum) 750

In the not too distant past, spiced rum was a spirit to avoid at all costs. Producers took an already sweet product (rum,) added artificial vanilla and citrus flavors, cinnamon, and then even more sugar to create a beverage made to appeal to the sweet tooth of an undergraduate student. We now have choices of spiced rum that are actually delicious and actually spicy. Wigle’s entry starts with a distillate of buckwheat honey – a tribute to the local grain known for its earthy, woodsy flavor. Next, a slew of ingredients are infused into spirit. Wigle uses vanilla bean, roasted orange peel, cocoa nibs, and cinnamon for a drink that is aromatically very complex, and downright spicy. This peppery kick makes the spirit an ideal partner for ginger beer, or a feisty member of a punch bowl. John Rankin

Duncan Taylor Octave Series Aultmore 2008 (7 Years-Old) Single Malt Scotch Whisky Chambers St. Malt #1

The Aultmore distillery in Keith has a long and somewhat complicated history, as many distilleries in Scotland do. It originally opened in 1895 powered by water wheel (which was quickly retired and replaced with a steam engine that was in use for 70+ years, save for maintenance, during which time the water wheel would be brought back into use) under the control of Alexander Edward, who was also the owner of the Benrinnes distillery. By 1899 it was under new ownership, went bankrupt in that year, and reopened again in 1904 only to close yet again during World War I due to barley shortages. By the late 1920s it was operating at full capacity. It changed hands multiple times, but aside from a brief closure due to expansion in the late 1960s, operation continues to this day. Though they do release an eponymous bottling in small quantities, the majority of the whisky is destined for blended malts. This is a shame, since it is among the most classic Speyside single malts I have tried.

This Chambers Street Exclusive was aged in 600L sherry casks before being moved into sherry-refill octave casks for 9 months. Delicate, airy aromas of grapefruit zest and warm hazelnut are backed by more decadent notes of peach cobbler, fresh cut grass, and brown sugar. It has nice weight on the palate and is decidedly fruit-forward with underlying spice, honey, chocolate, and toffee notes. There is almost a nutty, briny note as well with a wisp of smoke that sneaks in on the finish. A very traditional dram, and one that you won’t see again.

Chambers Street Malt #1: Aultmore Octave #Q1244. Distilled in 2008, bottled in 2016 aged 7 years-old at 104.4 proof after 9 months in octave cask. 81 bottles produced. Tim Gagnon

Duncan Taylor Octave Series Glen Moray 2009 (7 Years-Old) Single Malt Scotch Whisky Chambers St. Malt #2

Glen Moray is a distillery in Elgin, on the banks of the River Lossie, about a thirty-minute drive northwest of the Aultmore distillery. Originally owned by Robert Thorne & Sons (the owners of Aberlour at the time) and called the West Brewery, it opened in 1895 before adding two stills and rebranding as a distillery in 1897. A fire at the Aberlour distillery in the early 1900s all but halted production at Glen Moray as they focused their attention to rehabilitating the destroyed facility. It closed in 1910, and lay dormant until the late 1920s when it was purchased by the owners of the Glenmorangie family, and has been distilling ever since.

Our Chambers Street bottling shows the other side of Speyside with a fuller, sweeter profile. Think peanut brittle, caramel, granola, maple cream, and dried flower petals on the nose, with a decadent mouthfeel and flavors reminiscent of honey roasted walnuts, treacle, and brown spice. The finish picks up some of the piquant notes from the sherry octave that it was finished in, resulting in a slightly sweet, intoxicatingly long, and complex finish.

Chambers Street Malt #2: Glen Moray Octave #Q1207. Distilled in 2009, bottled in 2016 aged 7 years-old at 111.2 proof after 9 months in octave cask. 98 bottles produced. Tim Gagnon

Glengyle Distillery Kilkerran 12 Year Single Malt Whisky Campbeltown Non-Chill Filtered

Glengyle Distillery was first operational between 1873 and 1925. After it shuttered it was turned into a rifle range, and though there were a few attempts to reopen, none were successful until the year 2000, when it was bought by Mr. Hedley Wright, owner of Springbank and patron of Campbeltown. Using all Scottish barley and floor-malting at Springbank, Kilkerran shares many similarities with its neighbor, though is slightly lighter in body and less idiosyncratic, most likely due to the brand new stills that were installed upon reopening. Aged in both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry cask, this is the first 12 year age statement released and is well worth seeking out. A whiff of peat leads to a palate of toffee, butterscotch, citrus peel and a slight salinity. Out of the dozens of bottles in my whiskey cabinet, I find myself reaching for this one with frequency. We are expecting many great bottlings from this new/old distillery from Campbeltown. Oskar Kostecki

Springbank 10 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky Campbeltown 750ml

From the peninsula of Campbeltown comes the historic Springbank. Campbeltown once was the thriving center of Scottish distillation, now Springbank is one of the few left. A truly artisanal operation that employs their own floor maltings. Springbank uses a light peating for a smoky island character. The malt is actually distilled two and a half times, so there is a lightness that, when combined with the rugged terrain, creates a complex scotch that is very unique. Most of the malt was raised in Bourbon barrels for a pure, dry expression. (46% ABV) JR

Tequila

Tapatio Reposado 1L

Tapatio Reposado is how aged tequila should be. The notes of spice and pepper coming from oak aging integrate wonderfully with the natural sweetness and tropical fruit quality of the Blue Weber agave. As you take more time with this tequila, it reveals hints of caramel, cacao, toasted coconut and floral perfume. A grassy undertone leads to a crisp and mineral finish. Great as a sipper, this finds a perfect home in cocktails,from Margaritas and Palomas to a Tequila Old-Fashioned. Oskar Kostecki

Derrumbes Selmiana San Luis Potosi 44.16%

Produced from the wild agave Selmiana in the high altitude Central Mexican Plateau in the state of San Luis Potosi, this is a beautiful foil to traditional Oaxacan mezcal. The agave is not roasted, but cooked (similar to Tequila) resulting in a spirit that is not smokey, but instead bursts on the palate with a crazy array of flavors. Herbal and mineral tones weave their way through a bright citrus and  floral character. There's a slight sourness, a funk that I associate with cheese rind, and noticeable acidity, which is quite shocking for a distillate. The wilder side of mezcal. What I also notice with my bottle of Selmiana is that it changes quite remarkably once open. When I first popped the cork, it felt slightly muted and withdrawn, but within 20 minutes all the exuberance I remembered from previous bottles was there again. It is fascinating watching the bottle change and evolve over a period of weeks. Oskar Kostecki

Mescal Tosba Pechuga Oaxaca

Tosba's Pechuga is a beautiful example of the category. A bit reticent at first, it really needs a few days open to truly spread its wings. The pechuga is triple distilled with pineapple, wild plums, bananas, apples, rice, and turkey breast suspended in the still on the third run. This celebratory style of mezcal is extremely complex, with tropical fruit notes coupling with the more savory nuances extracted from the rice and meat, and also hints of raw cocoa, thyme, and almonds. Due to the suspended fruits and turkey breast, this mezcal is rich and mouth-coating on the palate, with a very long finish. Oskar Kostecki

Mezcal Real Minero Minero Barril 750ml

Barril is usually one of my favorite agave species used in the distillation of mezcal, and this example from Real Minero is no different. Tremendously expressive, this shows notes of papaya, guava, pineapple, purple flowers, apple, pear drop, candied orange, earth, and saline minerality. This is a very joyful and generous mezcal, with incredible complexity. Oskar Kostecki

Mezcal Tosba Espadin Oaxaca

The plots for Tosba's Espadin are scattered throughout the valley, ranging in altitude from 1100m close to the village of Lachiroig to about 600m around the palenque. The growing conditions and maturation times vary greatly. Lower down the mountain, due to the more tropical conditions,the Espadin can mature in as little as 6-7 years, while  the plots at higher elevations take up to 11 years. At the moment Edgar is co-fermenting and co-distilling plants taken from all the different parcels, but on my visit we talked about the future possibility of separating the Espadin according to terroir. Though currently we are in love with this new release. Higher proof than the earlier batches, it still retains its hallmark vivacity and acidity. The nose is all crushed rock and tropical fruit (banana!), with a faint whiff of aged Parmesan.  The palate shows notes of guava and watermelon bubblegum, with a floral element reminiscent of hibiscus. There is a hint of thyme and cardamom, along with a smoky, charcoal note. Viva Mezcal Tosba, this is sensational Espadin! Oskar Kostecki

Mezcal Tosba Tobala Oaxaca

Mezcal Tosba's Tobala is a wonderful explosion of perfume and flavor. A mélange of floral notes and tropical fruit is backed up a long, lingering evergreen finish. It also carries the hallmark viscosity and brightness of Tosba distillates. Tobala is often revered as the most special of the wild agave, and though we don't necessarily always throw our cap in that ring, without a doubt this bottling is quite extraordinary. Edgar and Elisandro are committed to making Tobala a sustainable crop in Lachiroig, and to that effect have planted tens of thousands of new plants in the past few years, all at varying altitudes.

Rezpiral NV Barril Simeone y Apolonio

Barril is a subspecies of Karwinskii agave which grows wild at high elevations, and often takes up to fifteen years to mature. This batch from Simeone y Apolonio Ramirez is very effusive and perfumed, characterized by violets, jasmine, fig, a mineral slate character, a hint of umami and an undercurrent of salinity. Only 133 bottles made! Oskar Kostecki

Couvreur, Michel Overaged Malt Whisky over 12 years old

Before he passed away in 2013, Michel Couvreur was undoubtedly one of the most interesting and inventive of independent whiskey bottlers. Along with experimental cask regimes that included everything from ex-Calvados to ex-Jura Vin Jaune barrels, Mr. Couvreur was a specialist of the sherry cask, travelling extensively throughout Andalucia sourcing the very best butts to age his purchased Scotch. The Overaged 12 Year is a perfect example of that, a heavily sherried malt with an approachable price-point. Chewy and viscous on the palate due to its complete lack of filtration, it has notes of raisins, sultana, fruit cake, dried candied fruit, and leather. Perfect for a cold Christmas evening.

High Wire Distilling New Southern Revival 4-Grain Bourbon 750

Made from a four-grain mash bill of heirloom white corn, Red Winter Wheat, malted barley, and Carolina Gold Rice from the famed Anson Mills in Columbia, South Carolina, this is uniquely southern Bourbon. It spends eighteen months in barrel and yields a spirit that is happily grain-forward (when you use such high-quality grain, why wouldn’t you want it to be?), with secondary aromas of malted milk chocolate, baked apricot, and sweet spice. The palate is smooth, yet earthy and spicy, with fruit returning on the finish along with apple butter and nutmeg. This is a delicious experience for all whiskey lovers. Tim Gagnon

High Wire Distilling New Southern Revival 4-Grain Madeira-Finished Bourbon 750

Much like the Barrel-Rested Gin, this Madeira cask-finished Bourbon is an interesting experiment on the effects of different barrels on distilled spirits. It is the exact same whiskey as the Four-Grain Bourbon but aged in Madeira barrels for six additional months. On the nose, that unmistakable grain character is still there, but there is more lift with high-toned, vivid red berry fruit, wildflower honey, and a touch of rancio right on its heels. It is also a bit brighter on the palate with more fruit and a touch of sea minerals. Cereal grains and honey linger on the tongue allowing the whiskey to come full circle for a wonderfully complete Bourbon. This is simply delicious! Tim Gagnon

West Cork The Pogues Irish Whiskey 750 ml

One of our favorite blended Irish whiskeys, this bottling comes from the small, independent  West Cork Distillery, and is indeed inspired by the legendary folk-punk band. A blend of 10 year old single malt aged in ex-bourbon casks and 5 year grain whiskey aged in sherry cask. Triple distilled in the classic Irish style, this is light and floral with soft grain notes and a hint of dried fruit and baking spice. Oskar Kostecki

Wigle Pittsburgh Organic Chambers St Rye 375mL

This year's single-cask of Wigle rye is an absolute powerhouse! Put into a 53 gallon, Char Level 3 barrel on March 6th, 2014 at 125 proof (the maximum allowed under law) and emptied on October 11th, 2018, this whiskey spent 4.5 years aging in Wigle's Pittsburgh warehouse, more than double our previous releases.  It was distilled from 95% rye and 5% malted barley, sourced from local farms undergoing organic certification. With a little wider cuts taken, this whiskey is rich and ebullient both on the nose and palate, with notes of rye spice, baking spices, vanilla, caramel, dried apricots, grilled peaches, burnt orange peel, dried cherries, cherry pit, spun sugar, perfumed cedar, and a slightly earthy, mossy quality. Incredibly complex and with a beautiful rich texture, this drinks really well at the 55% abv, but a few drops of water really help bring out some of the fruitier notes, a whiff of honey, and a delicate floral note. This rye has a very long and lingering finish, and is a wonderful way to round off an evening. Oskar Kostecki
