  1. Kings County Straight Bourbon Mini's 200ml
    Kings County Straight Bourbon Mini's 200ml
    Gold Medal - 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition 45% ABV.

    Kings County Bourbon is the same spirit as Kings County's moonshine, here aged for an average of two years in new, American oak charred barrels. The nose offers spicy, cedar, fresh oak and roasted malt notes. Very fine but also complex, there is also the suggestion of pecan, fresh corn and bright cherry. The palate is really spicy and fine; there's real depth of malt and fruit cake notes shot through with higher notes of citrus, fresh vanilla as well as cinnamon and other autumnal spices. The texture is very smooth, a spirit of the quality we normally associate with top notch Cognac, and the finish is spicy, lingering and perfumed. Wonderful stuff that is easily good enough to sip from the flask. Exotic and deep, with flavors of grain, licorice, vanilla and molasses. ERIC ASIMOV, New York Times

  3. Monkey Shoulder Whiskey 700ml
    Monkey Shoulder Whiskey 700ml
    The nose is nice and sweet with sherry, not quite ripe plum, cinnamon sprinkled baked pears (pretentious, I know, but I think that describes it better than pear and cinnamon separately), butterscotch, barley and strawberry. There is also a distinctively Bourbon-esque vanilla note. Very pleasant nose, I would rate it highly amongst blends so far as aroma goes. The palate is surprisingly tangy with a heathery/sweet nutty honey sweetness which is paired with tinned fruit, citrus and mint. Towards the end you’ll also notice some oak notes and orange peel which stay in the finish which is medium-long. The nose is more impressive, but the palate has nothing to be ashamed of. I could see this going really well in a Rob Roy, actually.

  4. Starward Whisky - Two Fold (700ml)
    Starward Whisky - Two Fold (700ml)
    Our vision has always been to create a whisky that is not only world class in quality and craftsmanship but accessible to all, regardless of how you choose to enjoy it.
    Two-Fold is our biggest step in that ambitious direction - a double grain whisky that is entirely matured in our signature Australian red wine barrels. A union of Australia's two most quintessential grains; Wheat and Malted Barley, coming together to create a flavor-forward whisky that is filled with rich complexities driven by the power of two grains. Matured in Melbourne's intensely reactive climate, leading to a beautifully balanced and incredibly versatile sipping whisky. The nose is filled with spiced vanilla and fresh tropical fruit. Whilst the palate is flowing with hints of Fuji apples, roasted pineapple, lightly toasted oak, and a soft tannic finish. STARWARD

  5. Kings Moonshine 375ml
    Kings Moonshine 375ml
    40% ABV. Kings County Distillery's Moonshine (un-aged whiskey) is distilled from 80% New York State organic corn and 20% malted barley, sourced from the UK. The latter represents one of the highest proportions of malted barley on a US whiskey's mash bill. It is double distilled in gooseneck copper pot stills to yield a lower distillation proof, rich in flavor and mouthfeel. The Kings County distillers use very narrow cuts, essentially the heart of the hearts, to draw off a very clean, pure distillate. Nothing at all is added.

    "Absolutely spot on corn whiskey; sweet, clean, berry-fruit, very well made and does exactly what it says on the tin." 92 points, JIm MURRAY'S WHISKEY BIBLE 2017

  6. Kings County Straight Bourbon 375ml
    Kings County Straight Bourbon 375ml

    Kings County Distillery’s Straight Bourbon is made from New York State 80% organic corn and 20% English malted barley, is twice distilled in copper pot stills and then aged in new charred oak barrels. Rich in caramel, vanilla, and holiday spice, this bottle is cited frequently in lists of best non-Kentucky bourbons. Aged for at least two years, this is a precocious whiskey, surprisingly robust for its age.

    “Crisp Demerara sugar; sumptuous texture, aided by melt-in-the-mouth natural caramels; an excellent outpouring of citrus-tinged vanilla; for a year-old bourbon the sugars have accumulated charmingly (89=excellent).” – Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible 2013  “Exotic and deep, with flavors of grain, licorice, vanilla and molasses.”  (#2 Craft Bourbon, 3-Stars) — ERIC ASIMOV, New York Times 2014.  “Top Ten Bourbons” —Time Out New York, 2014

  7. Rittenhouse 100 Bottled in Bond Rye Whiskey (700ml)
    Rittenhouse 100 Bottled in Bond Rye Whiskey (700ml)

    Rittenhouse Rye 100 - Aged 4 years

    Now widely accepted as a bench mark American Rye and outstanding its it class. Rittenhouse is much acclaimed and is enjoying a much deserved comeback throughout the USA with plenty of awards and accolades to its name. A beautiful nose, choc-full with baking spices and crushed red pepper. A touch hot but not the least bit unexpected for this 100 proof bottling. The higher alcohol  makes it the perfect candidate shaken into cocktails or poured over ice just to help break down the heat a little. More to the richer and robust side of US Rye the palate has lashings of clovey/vanilla-bean anglaise, gingerbread, citrus peel, cocoa and spicy, woody notes and an almost creamy, rich palate. Basically just just damn good tasty Rye.

  9. Mars Iwai Wine Cask Whisky (750ml)
    Mars Iwai Wine Cask Whisky (750ml)

    Limited edition of IWAI Tradition Blended whisky. Aged in red wine (CabernetSauvignon) cask more than one year. On nose, light floral, fruity, hints of orange peel, and chocolate. Rich and fruity flavour with smooth texture, delicate tannin, vanilla, honey, caramel and red wine/oak character. Medium length, spicy followed by aromas of wine casks. It presents with a little red berry over-tone and an extra dimension that it gives a little extra lift and lilt. This is done really well and we often don't love 'wine' expressions but this is on the money. PWS

  10. Michter's US*1 Single Barrel Rye Whiskey (700ml)
    Michter's US*1 Single Barrel Rye Whiskey (700ml)
    A well balanced and solid drinking Rye out of Louisville, Kentucky. Each bottling comes from a single barrel and with the limited production these can be sometimes difficult to get. With not quite the demand in Australia that you see in the USA we are lucky enough to keep these on the shelf for the most part. Michters unusually, fill barrels at a much lower proof then most other bourbons and whiskeys and uses a fairly unique heat cycling warehousing system for their barrels which add more richness, complexity and flavour. A spicy and peppery nose, with hints of mint and fresh cut hay. The medium to rich palate is long, lightly sweet and carries its lovely charry/spicy oak barrel flavours beautifully. PWS

  11. Willett Family Johnny Drum Bourbon Whiskey (700ml)
    Willett Family Johnny Drum Bourbon Whiskey (700ml)
    Plenty of color, and the nose says it ain’t lying. Sharp warehouse oak aroma puts an edge on an authoritative nose of honey, Indian pudding, spicy hard candy, and old-fashioned root beer, the not-too-sugary kind. Fiery and bold on the tongue as oak roars from start to finish, but the sweetness builds sip-by-sip: cornbread, buckwheat honey, King syrup, and a teasy bit of citrus peel. Long finish as the oak dies down. At this price, let’s keep it our secret. LEW BRYSON www.maltadvocate.com

  12. Chichibu Ichiro's Malt & Grain Whisky (700ml)
    Chichibu Ichiro's Malt & Grain Whisky (700ml)
    Ichiro Akuto's most voluminous and accessible Whisky is, as it says on the label, a blend of Malt and Grain Whiskies. While the exact source of the material is not published, we know it's a blend of Japanese distilled material vatted with Whiskies sourced from around the world. In addition to Whisky from his own stocks--including, potentially, Hanyu and Karuizawa, as well as his own Chichibu--the blend contains spirits from Canada, the United States, Ireland and Scotland. The imported Whiskeys are 3-5-years-old, aged in their country of origin before being carefully blended with local Japanese material and matured a further 1-3 years at Chichibu. The Whisky is vatted in 2 x 5,000-litre wooden barrels built by French cooper Taransaud. Non-chill filtered, non-coloured.

  13. Kirin Fuji-Sanroku Signature Blend Whisky (700ml)
    Kirin Fuji-Sanroku Signature Blend Whisky (700ml)
    Gold Medal - World Whisky Awards 2018

    Launched in Japan in 2018 as a premium label replacement of the massively successful Fuji Sanroku Tarujukugenshu 50°. Each casks used in this blend is hand selected by Kirin's Jota Tanaka, the 2017 Icons of Whisky Master Distiller/Master Blender of the Year.

    Nose: Toffee, pineapple, passion fruit, apricot jam.
    Palate: Orange, rye spice, nutmeg, cloves, apricot jam, pineapple, wood shavings, passion fruit.
    Finish: Very well controlled wood. Rye spice, smooth bourbon, passion fruit, pineapple and apricot jam.

    Fuji-Gotemba Distillery’s talent for grain whisky is evident here, with a nose of waxy green leaves, whole peppercorn, and fleeting glimpses of lemon peel, lime zest, and white peach amid the airy, floral top notes. It has a serene, calming quality to it. Spicy pepper, orange peel, mouth-coating vanilla, creamy toffee, and crunchy apple, with a clean finish, like orange flesh laid out on hot stones. 90 points, JONNY MCCORMICk, whiskyadvocate.com
