Kentucky Best Bourbon 4 year Old

Kentucky Best 4 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey...$10.99
4 year old Wheated Bourbon from Lux Row.
80 proof

Balcones Texas Whisky

Balcones Baby Blue Corn Whisky...$33.99
The first Texas whisky on the market since Prohibition, Baby Blue is crafted from roasted heirloom blue corn. This rich and oily maize adds new sophistication to the corn whisky tradition while keeping the freshness and verve of classic American distilling. Intentionally youthful, Baby Blue captures the essence of this prized corn with a round nuttiness, roasted overtones and refined complexity. The mouthfeel is viscous with a soft finish. A true Texas original that we are delighted to share with the world.
Roasted heirloom blue corn is the pride of this Texas whiskey. The maize is unctuous, and it adds weight to the mouthfeel, which broadens and disperses across the mouth. Flavors and aromas of walnut—along with a slight nut tannin quality—tangle with peach and Anjou pear notes. At 96 proof, there’s still a soft touch to the palate and nose, perhaps a touch of black pepper to ramp up the sweeter tones of toffee oak and brown sugar
Rated 95/100 Tasting Panel

Balcones Texas Pot Still Bourbon...$25.99
Big flavors have always been the cornerstone of our prized Texas Whiskies, and Texas Pot Still Bourbon is no exception. Made grain-to-glass using a traditional pot still distillation ensures a rich and viscous spirit that stands up to aging in new charred oak without losing its essence. Each dram is full of character and body, with an aromatic entry and soft finish, for an approachable yet memorable experience.
Honeycrisp apples, toasted oak, kettle corn, graham cracker, oiled glove
honey, sweet cream, candied pecans, sandalwood and leather
soft and sweet, drying and tannic fade with lingering spice

Balcones Texas Rye 100 Proof...$33.99
Our 100% Rye Mashbill began with Elbon Rye from Northwest Texas accompanied by crystal, chocolate and roasted rye. Driven by constant curiosity, we distilled our Rye in our copper pot stills, bringing new subtlety and perspective to our approach
soft charred oak, black tea and cracked pepper open up to fruit and chocolate covered cherries
creamy buttery toffee, building to peppery spice notes with hints of coffee and nuts
peanut butter and dark chocolate
A luscious, lovely rye that’s fresh and spicy; aromatic, silky, and toasty with long, memorable flavors of spice and caramel. Deep, balanced, and long.

Domaine Faiveley Re-Fill

With the 25% tariffs imposed last October Burgundy prices have been steadily increasing making an already expensive region even more so. Thankfully our good friends at Frederick Wildman have us covered with a fantastic selection of Domaine Faiveley wines that were already stateside before the tariffs took effect.

2017 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Blanc Clos Rochettes...$29.99
From a stony parcel adjacent to Faiveley's Framboisière, the 2017 Mercurey Blanc Clos Rochette is showing very well indeed, wafting from the glass with scents of citrus oil, spring blossom, nutmeg and pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a delicately textural attack, excellent cut and concentration and a chalky finish. It will be well worth seeking out.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate

2017 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Framboisiere 1er Cru...$39.99
Tightly wound, yet dense, with flavors of cherry, currant, sandalwood, olive and sweet spices, this is intense and persistent on the lingering aftertaste. Finely wrought and balanced. Best from 2021 through 2033
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator

2017 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Clos Myglands 1er Cru...$51.99

Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator

2017 Domaine Faiveley Beaune Clos d'Ecu 1er Cru...$59.99
Though generous, this is also lively and solid, with cherry, currant, spice and herbal flavors riding a vibrant structure. Dense tannins suggest that this needs time. Sapid finish
Rated 93/100 The Wine Enthusiast
Rated 93/100 James Suckling

2016 Domaine Faiveley Chambolle Musigny...$89.99

Laroche Chablis

2018 Domaine Laroche Chablis St Martin....$31.99
The 2018 Chablis Saint Martin is a soft, pretty wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Apricot, hazelnut, tangerine peel, dried flowers, mint and lightly honeyed notes all grace this airy, lilting Chablis from Laroche.
Rated 90/100 Tim Akin Decanter Magazine

A worthy follow up to the fantastic 2016 the 2017 Valderiz Ribera del Duero is another stunner

2017 Valderiz Ribera Del Duero...$33.99

Ardbeg Wee Beastie 5 Year Single Malt Scotch

Ardbeg Wee Beastie 5 Year Single Malt Scotch...$39.99
Compare to $52.99 at Total Wine and More in KY (not listed on STL website)
Ardbeg Wee Beastie is the latest permanent expression to join the Distillery’s Ultimate Range. At just five years old, Wee Beastie is a feisty young creature with a formidable taste.


Our whisky creators set out to make the rawest, smokiest Ardbeg ever. The result is Ardbeg Wee Beastie and this tongue-tingling, beautifully smoky dram is the youngest Ardbeg we’ve ever made.

On the snout, intense aromas of cracked blacked pepper mingle with sappy pine resin and a sharp tang of smoke. Suddenly, an explosive mouthfeel bursts forth with chocolate, creosote and tar. Savoury meats sink into the palate before the long salty mouthcoating finish slinks away… revealing the inner beast of this Islay icon.

Young and intensely smoky, this is a dram untamed by age. Matured in ex-bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks, Wee Beastie is perfect for enjoying neat or as the mouth-watering main ingredient in a powerfully smoky cocktail.

Non chill-filtered at 47.4%.
