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

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

Capovilla Moscato Fior d'Arancio 375ml

This is a single variety grappa bottling featuring the wonderfully aromatic "Uva Moscota Fior d'Arancio." Vittorio Gianni Capovilla uses his rare bain-marie still to slowly distill and preserve the lively honey and citrus qualities of the grape. 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

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

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

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

Paul Beau NV Cognac Grande Champagne VSOP

Maison Paul Beau was one of the first grape growers to distill and bottle a portion of their harvests instead of selling to the large houses, starting in 1895. Since then they have been making fantastic Cognac from vineyards surrounding the village of Segonzac in the heart of Grande Champagne. Their VSOP is a phenomenal value, the blend containing brandies averaging around 15 years in age. Notes of baked apple, pear, caramel, and baking spice lead to a long and complex finish. A must try!

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

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

Amara Amaro D'Arancia Rossa Blood Orange Liqueur

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

Byrrh, Violet Frères Grand Quinquina 375ml

Pronounced 'Beer', this is a unique tonic with roots in the Languedoc region of south-west France. Local red wine is infused with 10 botanicals, most apparent of which is the bitter quinine bark. Fans of vintage advertising should seach for Byrrh posters and they will be rewarded with over 100 years of signage, including rich Art Nouveau images.  The beverage itself should be enjoyed chilled, on its own or with soda water and a twist; it could also make a good addition to a Negroni or other classic coctails.

Delaware Phoenix Walton Waters Absinthe Superieure

Delaware Phoenix is the passion-driven distillery owned and operated by Cheryl Lins.  She started making the first traditional Absinthes in New York in the town of Walton on a tiny pot still.  The results are superb, and compare favorably with Europe's best.  The "Walton Waters" bottling is distilled with the classic herbs: Grand wormwood, Anise, Florence Fennel, Roman wormwood, Lemon balm, and Lemon Thyme.  The spirits are high proof (136) and should be diluted with three to five parts ice cold water.  JR

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.

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

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.

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

Nux Alpina (Purkhart) Walnut Liqueur 375ml

A longstanding tradition throughout the Alps is the annual production of a rich and aromatic walnut liqueur. Each summer the family picks fresh green walnuts from wild stands of the delicate “Weinsberg” variety near the village of Sankt Peter in der Au. These walnuts steep for months in Weinbrand (a grape brandy) and for the last month with a variety of spices and alpine botanicals. For three generations the Purkhart family has produced this all-natural walnut liqueur from the same family recipe, renowned for its balance and exceptionally smooth finish.

Pernot Sapins Liqueur Traditionnelle (40%) 1 Liter

This newly imported electric green liqueur caught us all by surprise. It’s an herbal apéritif with bitter botanical and fresh mint flavors—think Chartreuse with an added pine-y kick—from the Franche-Comté, a region famous for absinthe production. Sapins’ distinctive evergreen quality comes from the addition of young fir buds to the other macerating components. The spirit is delicious as a digestive, but one could add it to seltzer and ice for a refreshing long drink.  JR

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

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

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

Foursquare 2005 Bourbon Cask 750ml

The 2005 release is very similar to the 2004, though it benefits from an extra year of tropical aging. The 2005 appears slightly spicier and meatier than the 2004, with a bit more smoke, vanilla, baking spice, and dried fruit, both on the nose and palate. Oskar Kostecki

Foursquare Zinfandel Cask Rum 750ml

Nominally the "entry-level" release from Foursquare, there is nothing simple about this rum. The Zinfandel Cask is the answer to 2016's Port Cask finish release: fruit forward and effusive, combining aromas of caramel, dried stone fruit, and baking spices with a hint of brandied cherries and red berry fruit. The palate is light on its feet; this is not a heavy (full-bodied and high ester) rum by any means, but it's nonetheless complex, with a slight salinity that creeps in on the finish. This rum is 11 years-old, and a great introduction to the Foursquare family. Oskar Kostecki

Hamilton Jamaican Pot Still Gold Rum

Ed Hamilton's Jamaica Gold Rum is sourced from the Worthy Park Distillery in the parish of St. Catherine at 1,200 feet in elevation. The estate was founded in 1670 and commercial sugarcane production began in 1720, long before any other distillery on the island. All of the sugarcane is processed on the property which results in molasses that is exceptionally high in sugar content. Fermentation of the molasses take place over three weeks and distillation occurs in copper pot stills resulting in a classic "heavy" rum - the term used for the rich, molasses-based pot still rums of the former English colonies. The only additives are natural sugar-based caramel coloring and water. The nose is a bouquet of earthy, leathery tones balanced by ripe tropical fruits, starchy banana, sweet spice, and a toasted, nutty quality. On the palate it is quite rich with toasted coconut, red apple skin, bright minerality, and more earthiness. This is killer in many classic cocktails, particularly a Daiquiri, and is equally great sipped neat! Tim Gagnon

Rhum J.M. Martinique V.S.O.P. Rhum 750ml

Because of Martinique’s history with France, bottles of rhum will often feature some of the same nomenclature that is used to denote age on Cognac labels. Here we have a V.S.O.P., which stands for “very special old pale,” a phrase used in the Cognac trade to highlight aged brandies for British merchants. Some extra oak aging tempers the spirit’s initial herbaceousness with flavors of clove, cinnamon, and smoke. This is extremely complex, round and easy to drink. Treat it as a fine brandy or whisky and enjoy it in a snifter after dinner. John Rankin

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 Casimir Sugarcane Rum Haiti 48.3%

The Casimir clairin is a peculiar beast. This bottle is a shapeshifter; at times incredibly effusive and fruit forward, return to it a week later and it's dark, spicy, and full of mushroom and umami notes, almost reminiscent of furikake, Japanese rice seasoning. The Casimir distillery is in the village of Barraderres, only 25km from Cavaillon, but it's a three hour drive into the jungle. There, surrounded by lime, mango and banana trees, Mr. Faubert Casimir farms two types of cane, Hawaii red and Hawaii white, both low-yielding, but extremely fragrant varieties. Fermentation takes place in large mango wood vats, and, in the tradition of the area, Casimir occasionally adds citronella leaves, cinnamon, ginger, and other herbs and spices to the fermenting cuvee. This is a dense and complex clairin, and one to be savored over a period of time. 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

Eigashima Shuzo Akashi Sherry Cask Single Malt Japanese Whisky

From Eigashima Shuzo's White Oak facility. This is a true sherry monster, aged in ex-Pedro Ximenez and finished in Oloroso casks, creating a thick and viscous mouthfeel and an extremely rich palate. Notes of dried friut and leather dominate, with orange rind, baking spice, and a slight balsamic quality. Eigashima Shuzo produces a miniscule amount of whisky, and this is by far their rarest release. Quite a treat. Oskar Kostecki

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

Kilchoman Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisk Machir Bay

Kilchoman is the first new distillery on the famed island of Islay for 124 years. The concept is a "farm distillery" that houses every aspect of the production, from growing the grain to bottling the barrels. The results are fantastic with soft peat and salty citrus flavors. This bottle is a vatting of three, four and five year old whiskies, with meticulous barrel selection giving the scotch a more mature profile than one may think.  JR

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

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

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

Rezpiral NV Ensamble Berta Vasquez

An ensamble, or blend of several different agave species all co-roasted, co-fermented, and co-distilled, is a historic style with a long tradition. With different species taking various length of time to mature, making an ensamble was a mezcaleros way of pulling from the available bounty of the land and creating a special, oftentimes unique batch. These are some of our favorite styles of mezcal, carrying great complexity. This is a blend of Espadin, Tepeztate, Tobala, and various Karwinskiis, and explodes on the palate with notes of tropical fruit, melon, roasted pineapple, evergreen,  resin, violets, hot stones and remarkable salinity.

Rezpiral NV Espadin Capon Aureliano Hernandez

This mezcal is one of the most intriguing bottlings I have tasted. Aureliano Hernandez crafts this in the village of San Balthazar Guelevila using Espadin grown at altitudes of over 1500 meters. He allows the plants to reach full maturity and shoot up a quijote, a flowering stalk which grows from the piña and signals that the agave is ready to reproduce. At this point Aureliano cuts off the quijote and allows the Espadin to further mature, trapping all the sugars that were meant to go into its reproductive cycle in the piña. When he harvests at around twelve years of age, the agave is incredibly ripe, producing notes of raw honey, burnt sugar, and brown butter, with a rich and viscous mouthfeel. Absolutely stunning.

This batch of Tepeztate is deep and intense, showing signs of evergreen, herbs, pepper, resin, dried flowers, and green papaya. Very complex with a long finish. A little over 100 liters made!

Rezpiral NV Tobaziche Berta Vasquez

Tobaziche is part of the Karwinskii family of agave, and is characterized by a long piña (heart of the agave) and long leaves that shoot out high off the ground. For me, Karwinskii agave almost always exhibit a higher toned, more floral character, and tend to have more pronounced acidity as well. Berta's 2017 batch of Tobaziche is an interplay of red and green chiles, dried violets, orange and grapefruit flesh, orange rind, mango, and hot stones.  Balanced and complex, with a long clean finish - this is a mezcal to savor.

Wigle Pittsburgh Organic Chambers St Rye 375mL

The words of Mark Twain still ring true in 2017: "Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough." Our seasonal single cask collaboration with Wigle from Pittsburgh is finally here! Wigle makes a wonderfully spicy and earthy rye whiskey, and this year's expression is no different. Gingerbread and candied orange dominate the nose, while the warming palate of this nearly cask-strength whiskey leads to more savory notes of nutmeg, clove, cedar and white pepper. This is perfect for sipping neat, but I wouldn't hesitate letting it loose in a Sazerac! Oskar Kostecki
