I.W. Harper Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

I.W. Harper Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey...$32.99
A good story gets better with each telling, and the legend of I.W. HARPER is no exception. Finally, after nearly 20 years, the I.W. HARPER brand is returning home with two new, exceptional I.W. HARPER bourbons. Beginning with a subtle nose, I.W. HARPER Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey leaves traces of caramel and vanilla on entry before melting into velvety bursts of wood and spice. The finish is sweet and pleasant with subtle fruit notes.
ABV: 82 proof, 41% ABV

1980s...I.W. Harper is no longer available in the U.S.
Back at home the bourbon market is declining, but luckily for I.W. HARPER it’s quickly expanding across the globe, especially in Japan. In response to bourbon's surging popularity in this market, United Distillers decides to slowly cease its I.W. HARPER distribution in the U.S. and shift focus overseas. And thus, I.W. HARPER bourbon bids America farewell and embarks on its next chapter.

Peanut Butter Whiskey

Peanut Butter Whiskey

Screwball Peanut Butter Whiskey...$26.99
Born in quirky Ocean Beach, California, Skrewball was created by a husband and wife duo, Brittany and Steven Yeng. Steven was a bartender and foodie who owned high volume restaurants. Brittany was an attorney who also had a Master’s in Chemistry. They were both
successful, but they never saw each other. When they saw his peanut butter whiskey cocktail out-selling any other spirit (and with a baby on the way), they decided to bottle their own peanut butter whiskey. But, it was much harder than they had thought. No wonder there is nothing like it in the market! After tons of experimentation, they ended up creating something even better than the original cocktail.  Why Peanut Butter? Steven is a Cambodian refugee and polio survivor. When he came to America, he was given baskets full of non-perishables including peanut butter. He fell in love with it. To him, it is the taste of America.

Macallan Rare Cask 2019 Release Batch No. 1

Macallan Rare Cask 2019 Release Batch No. 1...$249.99
Rare Cask's rich mahogany-red whisky showcases two of The Macallan’s greatest and most defining strengths - sherry seasoned oak casks and natural color.
Rare Cask combines knowledge, skill, passion, commitment and creativity to create a remarkable whisky worthy of its name.
Crafted to showcase complexity and depth, Rare Cask is drawn from the broadest spectrum of casks used in maturation on The Macallan Estate. Hand-picked by our whisky making team, the combination of sherry seasoned American and European oak casks - a high proportion of them first fill - deliver an exquisite and unmistakably woody whisky with a rich hue.
Incomparable access to the most extensive range of cooperages in Spain gives us some of the finest and scarcest casks to choose from to create Rare Cask, which results in a diversity in the finished whisky unlike other Macallan expression. It is the role of the whisky making team to get to know each and every cask in detail, from how it interacts with the spirit to the spectrum of colours it imparts. This relationship between cask and craftsman, spirit and skill, ultimately give us Rare Cask.
