Duvel Barrel Aged Irish Whiskey Barrel Edition Batch No. 7
Great news from the cellars of our brewery... the seventh batch of Duvel Barrel Aged is ready! Duvel Barrel Aged, the Irish Whiskey edition, is a unique strong tasting beer, brewed with respect for the authentic taste of Duvel but with a surprising Irish twist: smoky notes of oak, vanilla and a hint of peat.
By ageing the original Duvel in oak Irish Whiskey barrels, the speciality beer acquired smoky notes of oak and vanilla, and a beautiful copper colour.

2021 John Duval Entity Shiraz
2021 John Duval Entity Shiraz....$29.98
A big and rich wine but it shows freshness and energy underneath the juicy and rather thick fruit with plush tannins. Some chewiness, too. Needs two or three years to soften. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
Rated 94/100 James Suckling
2021 Tatomer Sanford and Benedict Pinot Noir
2021 Tatomer Sanford and Benedict Pinot Noir...$59.99
Both gleeful and thoughtful, this single-vineyard expression pops on the nose with juicy aromas of raspberry, rosewater, watermelon gummy and wet cement. The palate carries the red fruit forward with strawberry and candied rose flavors, as cinnamon adds nuance and an elegant acidity rides long into the flavorful finish.
Rated 96/100 The Wine Enthusiast
Kentucky Owl Mardi Gras XO Cask Limited Edition
Kentucky Owl Mardi Gras XO Cask Limited Edition...$449.99
"The Kentucky Owl Mardi Gras XO Cask Limited Edition is an extremely small release created thanks to Stoli Group's diverse portfolio. Beginning with a Kentucky Owl 11-year-old Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey, the product was then finished for over one year in Bayou Rum XO Casks. Created in celebration of the spirit of Mardi Gras and the pride of Louisiana, the rare Bayou XO Casks create a unique whiskey. The Mardi Gras edition is bottled at 102.8 proof (51.4% ABV) with a suggested retail price of $500.
As barrels rolled in from Kentucky one muggy, misty March morning, Bayou Rum Master Blender Reiniel Vicente Diaz thought to himself, "there's a lot of good times rolling around in these barrels." The thought was reminiscent of the Mardi Gras mantra, "laissez les bons temps rouler" — let the good times roll — and in that moment the flash of inspiration came to pour this beautiful rich rye liquor into 38 very special, freshly emptied, Bayou Rum XO Mardi Gras ultra-premium rum casks.
Diaz knew the humidity of the unique Louisiana climate worked wonders on his own Bayou rum and was curious how it would shape the rich Kentucky rye. He knew filling the barrels in March would give the whiskey a good long, hot, humid summer to extract lots of lovely flavor, and he was patient enough to wait a further year and another sizzling summer before allowing the rest of the world enjoy this unique expression.
On the nose, Kentucky Owl® Mardi Gras XO Cask Limited Edition greets drinkers with robust toasted rye bread notes, smothered in farm fresh sweet butter, with hints of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. The mouthfeel begins with a robust, flavorful Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey, followed by a flurry of sweet butter whipped with allspice. The finish is smooth, with the sweet softness of butter and allspice giving way to a long and warming nutmeg coda.
These are the latest Kentucky Owl® releases under Rhea, who previously served as Four Roses Distillery's chief operating officer, where his responsibilities included quality control, maturation, evaluation and product blending. He was inducted into the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame in 2016 and served as chair of the Kentucky Distillers' Association board of directors. Rhea also blended award-winning Kentucky Owl® The Wiseman Straight Bourbon (San Francisco World Spirits Double Gold) and Kentucky Owl® The Wiseman Straight Rye (San Francisco World Spirits Gold), as well as collaborated with Irish & Japanese master blenders to create 2 new international collaborations, Kentucky Owl® St. Patrick's and Takumi Editions.
Stoli® Group, the leading global ultra-premium spirits and wine company, purchased Kentucky Owl® in 2017. Originally founded by C.M. Dedman in 1879, the Kentucky Owl® Bardstown distillery went dark during the Prohibition era and remained dormant until a descendant revived the brand in 2014. Since then, the company's small batch releases have sold out quickly and received rave reviews." - psnewswire

Peerless Bourbon Small Batch...$24.99 / 200ml
Peerless Bourbon Small Batch...$69.99 / 750ml
Peerless Kentucky Straight Bourbon upholds the promise of producing top-notch spirits from the historic distillery. Unlike rye, which features more hay and pepper, Peerless® Bourbon is rooted in fruits, florals, and oaks. The nose features citrus, cedar, and honeysuckle as well as a nice balance of spicy oak. The first sip is that of caramel and toasted oak before a multitude of notes from around the flavor wheel show up on the palate. The finish showcases an enduring duel between sweet and spicy notes as citrus, florals, and sweet oak tussle with dry cocoa, cinnamon, and spicy oak. The result is an amazing whiskey - fascinating for everyone from beginners to connoisseurs.
Every drop of Peerless Whiskey is honestly crafted, never sourced. Never chill-filtered.
Strictly sweet mash. Barrel proof. No water added. Made in the USA.

Off Color Brewing Stoutling Light Stout & Coffee Dino S'mores
Stoutling offers all the character of a classic Irish style dry stout with less alcohol (3.17% ABV) and calories (100 per 12 oz serving). Notes of red velvet sweetness, cocoa nibs, and dark toast transition into a drying finish. Mellow bitterness from hops rather than roasted malt provide the balance to keep this sessionable beer intriguing.
Based on the Irish style dry stout, Stoutling is not only lower in alcohol. Stoutling uses no sparge brewing which reduces tannins and softens the mouthfeel, avoiding the drying effect of a high level of grain tannins.
Pale, Flaked Barley, Crystal, Amber, Chocolate, Black, and Roasted Barley, and Magnum Hops
Off Color Coffee Dino S'mores Imperial Stout...$5.49 / 16oz can
Chocolate mousse, marshmallow creme, and rich, dark malts meld with bright notes of raspberry and a undercurrent of blueberry jam from this years addition of a natural process, fruit forward Costa Rican coffee sourced and lovingly roasted by Sump Coffee out of St Louis, MO. A long, slow extraction using a Kyoto drip method accentuates the vivacious fruits, sugary body, and floral character of this phenomenal small batch lot without over extracting acidity. 9.5 % alc/vol
DinoS’mores combines the brash, American interpretation of Russian Imperial Stouts with bold accents and round flavors with Scandinavian brewing techniques placing a greater emphasis on dark roasted malts and drier body to accentuate bitterness. The amalgam of these two trans-Atlantic approaches results in a very modern and deceptively rich, complex stout.
