Angel's Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Finished in Port Barrels

This Kentucky straight bourbon is aged on the top floors of the rickhouse before spending six months finishing in port barrels. Eight to ten barrels are used for each batch.

Basil Hayden's Dark Rye Whiskey

The special spirit is a blend of Kentucky straight rye whiskey, Canadian rye whisky and California port style wine bottled at 80 proof. Spicy, and deep with just a hint of sweetness.

Blood Oath Pact No. 5 Kentucky Straight Bourbon

A rare blend of well-bred bourbons: an extra-aged 13-year-old bourbon, a rich 11-year-old bourbon, and a 8-year-old bourbon finished in Caribbean Rum casks, sprinkled with notes of brown sugar, leather, vanilla with extra spice.

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.

Elijah Craig Barrel Proof

Notes of rich vanilla, caramel, and butterscotch along with spices of black pepper and cinnamon at the back of the palate are a big reason why this was Whiskey Advocate's 2017 Whiskey of the Year.

Henry McKenna Single Barrel Bottle - in - Bond Bourbon

Henry McKenna is the longest aged Bottled-in-Bond available today, resting in the barrel through 40 Kentucky seasons. Enjoy flavors of smooth oak, sharp spices, and honey sweetness.

High West Yippee Ki - Yay Straight Rye Whiskey

Flavors of bright cinnamon spice, vanilla, star anise, cherry cobbler, dried herbs, undertones of cedar wood finish with spiced red berry jam, black licorice, and muddled spearmint.

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.

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.

Kentucky Owl Confiscated Bourbon

Notes of gardenia, banana bread, toasty sourdough bread crust, and red apple on the nose. The taste is of graham crackers, citrus, toffee, and muted sweet cinnamon spice, balanced with white grape notes, and a hint of cayenne on the finish.

Knob Creek Limited Edition 2001 Batch #4 Bourbon

Aged for 14 years and bottled at 100 proof, this very special whiskey was finished by Fred Booker, celebrating the year he took over the reigns as Master Distiller from his legendary father Noe, using barrels laid down by his father in 2001. The extra aging imparts a bigger, fuller flavor profile with Batch 1 highlighting the sweet vanilla and caramel notes. Truly a rare whiskey!

Nikka Miyagikyo Single Malt Japanese Whisky

Soft and fruity, this whisky is distilled in a pot still heated by indirect steam at a low temperature. Miyagikyo Single Malt has an elegant fruitiness and a distinctive aroma with a strong Sherry cask influence.

Patron Ray's Pick Single Barrel Reposado Tequila

Our staff chose this easy drinking yet complex tequila that was aged in American oak for ten months. Hints of smoke and white pepper mingle with a soft fruit. Less than 200 bottles were produced.

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.

Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey

The One and Only New Orleans Original. Aromas of clove, vanilla, anise and pepper. Subtle notes of candies spices and citrus. The big finish is smooth with hints of licorice.

West Cork Black Reserve Irish Whiskey
