Rare Bourbons and Whiskeys

1.5oz Neat

Blanton's Single-Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

The Single-Barrel Bourbon that started it all! An incredibly rare treat from the Buffalo Trace distillery. A big dollop of vanilla cream, toasted corn, and sweet spices await you, bottled at a smooth 93 Proof.

Calumet Farm Kentucky Bourbon

From the farm which raised horses that have won eight Kentucky Derbies! Glowing with butterscotch and soft oak, Calumet’s harmonious perfection of wood and caramel is admirably balanced with complex flavors of light brown sugar and soft white pepper.

Connemara Peated Single Malt Irish Whiskey

An incredibly unique Irish whiskey, the palate offers up flavors reminiscent of a forest fire, with the creosote flavor continuing as well as a slightly medicinal note balanced with soft caramels and sticky buns.

E.H. Taylor Single-Barrel Bottled in Bond Rye Whiskey

Bottled at 100 Proof. From the Buffalo Trace distillery, dried fruit, black pepper, and touch of fresh dill, flavors both sweet and savory with a terrific balance of dark spices and subtle caramel overtones.

Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon

The Whiskey Advocate's 2017 Whiskey of the Year! A whopping 133.4 proof, incredibly rich, with subtle spice, and sweet oak. Hit this big boy with a touch of water and enjoy.

Glenlivet "Founder's Reserve" Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Named in honor of the distillery's founder, George Smith. It's classic Glenlivet, with a creamy and fruity character bolstered by the use of first-fill American oak to mature some of the whisky.

Green Spot Pot Still Irish Whiskey

Produced at the Midleton Distillery. 25% aged in sherry casks, with the remainder being aged in ex bourbon casks. The name is derived from the dab of paint used to identify the barrels by age, which in the Green Spot's case is seven to eight years.

Iwai Tradition Japanese Whisky

This malt-driven spirit is truly a reflection of contemporary Japanese whisky. Incredibly balanced, soft and layered. A blend of sherry, bourbon and wine casks with delicate hints of peat make for a harmonious whisky.

J. Rieger & Co. Kansas City Whiskey

An amazing blend of Bourbon and Rye aged between seven and eleven years old, with a small amount of 15-year-old Oloroso Sherry added. Arguably the greatest craft spirit our staff has tasted in the last year. Incredibly soft with notes of caramel, sweet smoke, and subtle earthy and nutty flavors, bottled at 92 Proof.

Jack Daniel's Ray's Pick Single Barrel Select Tennessee Whiskey

A rich and robust single barrel pick chosen by Ray's staff. This smooth sipper is all vanilla and peanut brittle with a special dollop of sweet oak!

Kaiyo Mizunara Oak Aged Japanese Whisky

Kaiyo is a blended malt whisky aged in rare Mizunara oak barrels, it takes up to eight trees to make a single barrel. Yielding an unbelievably gentle and soft whisky.

Knob Creek Limited Edition 2001 Batch #1 Bourbon

Complex oak and char notes with subtle vanilla and warm spice, this limited-edition from Batch #1 was released in late 2016, and is higher in sweet notes, vanilla and caramel than the later limited-edition Knob Creek 2001 batches that follow. Truly a rare whiskey!

Maker's Mark Ray's Pick Private Select Single Barel Bourbon

Our staff added a special combination of French and American oak staves to this single barrel of Bourbon at the distillery, the finished Bourbon is bursting with mocha and vanilla flavors, with a gentle long finish that goes down easy for being a robust 110 proof. Less than 200 bottles were produced.

Old Ripy Kentucky Straight Bourbon

A blend of eight to twelve year old Kentucky Bourbons, only released to eleven states. In the glass, Old Ripy has a light amber coloring. The nose is sweet with orange cream and vanilla. It also has quite a nutty side, surprisingly so. An oaky note rounds out the scent.

Redemption 10 Year Old Barrel Proof Rye Whiskey

This limited Redemption release shows off how rye whiskey can age gracefully, and remain rich, concentrated and intense at the same time. This beauty clocks in at a strong 116.2 proof.

Russell’s Reserve 6-Year-Old Rye

One of the most under-rated rye whiskeys in America. Tons of cinnamon spice, rich smoky grain flavors, and a beautiful sweet-charged oak finish. Master distillers Jimmy and Eddie Russell have over 90 years of experience between them, and it shows in this balanced rye from hand-selected barrels.

Suntory Toki Blended Japanese Whisky

A soft and mellow introduction to Japanese whisky. Flavors of apricot, toasted grains and lemongrass.

West Cork Black Reserve Irish Whiskey

A limited release of only 400 cases. Finished in double-charred Bourbon casks, with flavors of pleasant malt and deep woodiness.

Soft for being 93 Proof, with flavors of hazelnuts, toffee, caramel and spice, combined with light notes of citrus peel, wood and vanilla. The dark-sweet and nutty character reminiscent of candied nuts and peanut brittle is experienced with every sip.
