Lapierre Morgon scores 94 - new 2017

2017 M. & C. Lapierre Morgon....$31.99
Some very stony and flinty aromas with graphite. Red and dark plums, too. Smells fresh and very complex already. The palate has great density and a fine, compressed tannin texture, as well as a very focused finish. Spiced black cherries and blackberries, cassis and dark chocolate to close. Short carbonic maceration and juice is racked off during the carbonic process. A captivatingly powerful but focused Morgon. No Côte du Puy due to the hail in 2017. Best from 2020.
Rated 94/100 James Suckling

2015 Bordeaux

2015 Chateau Haut Bergey Pessac Leognan....$28.99

Rated 91/100 The Wine Spectator

2015 Chateau Haut Brisson St. Emilion....$28.99
This is the best Haut-Brisson ever showing ripe dark plums and chocolate on the nose, which is so seductive. The palate is all about the silky tannins and beautiful fruit. Full body, gorgeous fruit and a complex aftertaste. So precise and impressive. Texturally complete. Drink or hold." (2/2018) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The new wood flavors are strong here. They go with a minty character and bright acidity. The wine is dry and concentrated, with a firm core as well as juicy black fruits. It is beginning to balance well.

Rated 92/100 Vinous

2015 Chateau Saintayme Saint Emilion....$21.99
A Denis Durantou wine that is 100% Merlot, located in St-Étienne-de-Lisse. Because Durantou is so attuned to terroir, you get a masterclass here on the effect of limestone. At first this is austere to the point that you are scraping your tongue along a slate wall. I know I am a fan of that style, but wow, this is intense! It showcases stunningly tight tannins, with a freshness that flows right through the bilberry and blackberry fruits.
Rated 94/100 Decanter

Rated 92/100 The Wine Spectator

2015 Chateau Rauzan Segla Margaux...$97.99
The 2015 Rauzan-Segla (Rausan-Segla) is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc and was matured in 65% new and 35% one-year-old barrels for 18 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up a myriad of softly spoken fresh berry, floral and fragrant earth notes, including crushed red and black currants, black raspberries and menthol notes with touches of cigar box, lavender, violets, smoked meats, black truffles and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of very finely grained tannins and seamless freshness, the palate possesses an arresting quiet intensity of many tightly wound, subtle layers, finishing on a lingering mineral note. Very polished and precise, this Rauzan-Ségla is truly a triumph!

Stolen Overproof Rum Limited Edition...$16.99 / 375ml
STOLEN discovered Overproof at a historic, family-run distillery in Jamaica that’s over 250 years old, renowned for making some of the best heavy pot still rums in the world. It is the last of a 6-year aged, pot still rum made using hand harvested sugar cane grown by local farmers. The sugar cane mash is fermented using a proprietary yeast strand that is cultured in outdoor wood vats. The mash ferments for seven days in a selection of the distillery’s 50 different traditional cedar tanks. Utilizing mountain rain water collected by the estate’s own rain water retention system, the rum is distilled using very old, traditional pot stills… the same as those found in Scotland to make high flavor single malt whiskies. The distilled rum is then carefully matured in ex-whiskey barrels.  The result is a distinctively smooth 123 proof dark bronze rum with a flavor and profile that is nothing short of amazing. The nose is not the wet grass one might expect but rather offers a dose of white and black pepper spice married with charred oak and ripe banana. On the palate, there is a hint of charred vanilla along with notes of tangerine, banana, and pear. The rum has medium viscosity and lovely long legs, leaving a luscious light coat in your mouth. This is a very limited release.
When it’s over, it’s over. And out.

New York Times 
Surprise! Southern Comfort Has No Whiskey. But Soon It Will.
By Robert Simonson
May 8, 2017

When the Sazerac Company bought Southern Comfort from the liquor conglomerate Brown-Forman last year, the business motivation was clear.
“If you and I ended on a desert island and there was a bottle of liquor, there’s an even-money chance it would be Southern Comfort,” Mark Brown, the chief executive of Sazerac, said in a phone interview.

Very likely. But it’s also a 50-50 proposition whether any castaway would actually drink it. Southern Comfort has long borne a double-edged reputation as being both famous and infamous.

The blend of spirits and fruit and spice flavorings is a storied brand, with roots that are believed to go back to the 19th century, and it can be found in nearly every bar in America. Yet it is widely regarded as the drink of unwise youths and undiscriminating palates. The last time it was cool may have been when Janis Joplin made a show of swigging it day and night. (The company thanked her for the free advertising by giving her a fur coat.)

Kevin Richards, the new senior marketing director for Southern Comfort, admitted as much, saying that when Sazerac bought it, the brand was “in danger of losing a lot of relevance in the mind of consumers.”

Sazerac hopes to reverse that. A new-and-improved Southern Comfort will hit the shelves in July, with a redesigned label and bottle. Flavored versions like Lime Comfort and Caramel Comfort will be phased out.

But, most important, Southern Comfort will get back the one ingredient that many people have long assumed it contained: whiskey.

Once upon a time, Southern Comfort did include whiskey, though the complete formula has always been kept a secret. It was created by Martin W. Heron, purportedly while working at a New Orleans saloon. Over the years, it made hay out of slogans like “None Genuine but Mine” and “the Grand Old Drink of the South.” In 1939, in conjunction with the release of the film “Gone With the Wind,” the company promoted the Scarlett O’Hara cocktail, made of the liqueur, cranberry juice and lime juice.

But by the time Brown-Forman bought the brand in 1979, the kick inside the bottle was provided not by whiskey, but by grain neutral spirit — basically a generic alcohol free of character, not unlike vodka.

“I remember having arguments with bartenders who thought black was blue and swore it had whiskey in it,” Mr. Brown said. “We thought, as part of the overall positioning, we would put whiskey in it. And we have.”

Mr. Brown declined to disclose which whiskeys were being used, but said they were all drawn from Sazerac’s stocks of North American whiskey. In addition to the existing 70-proof and 100-proof versions, the company will introduce an 80-proof Southern Comfort that is considerably more whiskey-forward. Sazerac is also working on other whiskey-focused renditions, including Southern Comfort Rye and Southern Comfort Barrel Select.

Sazerac thinks that the drink’s future depends on consumers’ thinking “whiskey” and not “liqueur” when they buy or order it. “For us, whiskey is the root of the brand and we’re going to embrace that, and not play in that liqueur space,” Mr. Richards said.

Sazerac has even played a subtle mind game in giving the 80-proof version a black label, a color favored by another famous whiskey. “If we’re right between Jack Daniel’s and Jim Beam on the shelf,” Mr. Brown said, “that will be fine with us.”

Title: Whisky Ambassador
Cherish Varley is Remy-Cointreau’s newest brand ambassador, representing Westland and Bruichladdich. Cherish has been in love with these brands from when she first discovered them, having been the whiskey librarian at Untitled Supper club in downtown Chicago for two years. Most recently she is working with whiskey clubs as well as bartenders in helping their education of what single malt can be. She is proud to be presenting today in her home state of Missouri, even though she is a Chicago resident. Cherish firmly believes that the quality of sprits come from the people who make it, their passion for their product, and the quality of people who enjoy it (responsibly).

Bruichladdich Islay Barley Rockside Farm...$59.99
Unpeated Islay Single Malt Scotch

Westland American Oak...$69.99
Opened in 2010, Westland Distillery evokes the traditions of Scottish whisky produced with ingredients exclusively from the Pacific Northwest.
With a base of pale barley malt grown in Washington State, Westland American Single Malt Whiskey is produced from a grain bill comprised of five different roasted and kilned malts. Inspired by the craft-brewing culture of the region, specialty malts are then added to impart notes of chocolate, nuts, cookies, pastries, mocha, caramel and raisins. A Belgian brewer’s yeast further enhances flavor development – creating fruity esters during fermentation. Finally, the whiskey is matured in the finest new American oak casks to round out the flavor profile with hints of vanilla, caramel and coconut. “Every whiskey at Westland Distillery is underscored by our house style – a sweetness and ease on the palate accompanied by a fruity and complex but ultimately grain-focused finish worthy of its place in this new world,” says Matt Hoffman, master distiller at Westland, which produces 1,500 casks of the American Single Malt Whiskey annually.

Westland American Sherry....$69.99
Soft pancakes with maple syrup leads on the nose, closely followed by oatmeal raisin cookies and a selection of stewed yellow and green fruits. The palate adds some grapefruit to the pancake breakfast while the oatmeal raisin cookies begin to share the plate with some gingersnap cookies. With time in the glass, dried mango and star fruit emerge with a touch of kiwi to round things off.

Westland Peated Malt Whisky...$65.99
This peated whiskey is a bottling of two separate New Make spirits brought together after maturation. The first is made from a mash of peated malt, among the smokiest found in the new world. The second, from a mash of 100% Washington grown pale malt. When combined we create a single malt whiskey that encompasses a wide spectrum of peaty and smoky flavors without overwhelming the palate. The peat character is sturdy enough to satisfy the cravings of those looking for a solid dose of smoke, while the pale malt contributes grainy and fruity notes that unify the whiskey. Westland’s Peated Malt is filled into a variety of oak, including 1st-fill ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks, encouraging a controlled and even maturation. The result is a multi-dimensional yet balanced peated single malt whiskey. FLAVOR PROFILE NOTES The nose starts off with crunchy peanut butter, smoldering campfire and honey on a biscuit. The smoke from the campfire leaps out on the initial palate along with pistachio, almond and oloroso sherry. With time, the campfire transitions into smoldering earth and leather on the nose. Over the course of the tasting, the palate moves into dark, earthy herbs and spices. Peat iodine, anise, bing cherry and peanut butter remain on the finish.
