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.

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
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
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
