Macallan Rare Cask Highland Single Malt Scotch WhiskyColor: Mahogany. Nose: Opulent, yet soft and slightly meandering, picture an orchestra setting up: quiet vanilla with deep notes, already in tune; raisin bold and booming, though only in spells; chocolate a star performer, but not a standout; a sweet ensemble of apple, lemon and orange, beautifully balanced with a spicy quartet of root ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Then oak conducts, mature and elegant, with patience only time delivers. Palate: The spicy quartet leads, loud and full, unwavering in their performance. Raisin dares to temper - and succeeds!! - but oak takes control; timeless, polished, rich and resonating. Vanilla and chocolate compliment each other in the background Finish: Light citrus zest, yet full and warming.

Finish: A long, lingering finish carries the theme of the wood, spice and toffee right through to the end.
Jameson Rarest Vintage ReserveNose: A real full-bodied aroma. Initially sweet with ripe fruit notes of melon, bananas and dark fleshy plums. The unmistakable pot still spicy character combines to give hints of treacle, cinnamon and liquorice. Taste: A mouthful of flavours. Mellow sweetness and toasted wood are complemented by fruit richness characteristic of the port casks. A touch of creamy dairy fudge and dark chocolate add to the complexity. Finish: A tantalizingly long finish which covers the spectrum from the sweetness of fruit, through the spices to the unmistakable note of barley, where it all began.
Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2013Caymus Special Selection is the flagship wine of the Wagner family and is comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage. This wine is not produced in difficult years. Caymus prides itself on producing wines that are as approachable in youth as well at maturity. Aromas and flavors which can only be achieved through "hang time" - a technique which chances the loss of crop if early winter sets in. Leaving the fruit to "hang" on the vine unusually long develops suppleness, increases color, and matures the tannins of the grapes. The wines are abundant in textural tannins yet soft as velvet. Crop thinning, allowing measured sunlight to reach the vine's fruit zone, and waiting for increased ripeness are all part of our viticultural practices. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide array of aromas and flavors including cocoa, cassis and vanilla.

Joseph Phelps Insignia 2010The 2010 Insignia has an incredibly inky hue with layers of perfumed plum, dark berries, bergamot, mocha and graphite aromas followed by hints of spice box.

Masi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Mazzano 2007Look: Opaque ruby red with burnished reflections. Nose: Powerful aromas of cherries preserved in spirit and plums.

Good with red meat, game, quails, and gutsy dishes. Excellent with mature cheeses such as parmesan and pecorino.
W&J Graham's Vintage Port 1994A classic growing season produced grapes in quite superb condition. It soon became apparent during the vintage that the wines would be exceptional. This initial assessment has been borne out by their development in bottle; the wines showing Graham's characteristic richness, depth or flavour and concentration. Huge ageing potential. A classic.
W&J Graham's Vintage Port 2011The Symington family is pleased to announce their decision to declare 2011 as a Vintage year. This is only the third Vintage Port declaration for all the Symingtons' Port companies since 2000. The 2011 Vintage Ports are of an exceptional quality and are expected to age superbly over the coming decades. The weather is the decisive factor in creating outstanding wines in the Douro and the strong winter rains in late 2010 were crucial. April and May 2011 were unusually warm and, combined with some rainfall, resulted in a reduction in the overall production of the region. The 2011 Vintage Ports have an exceptional depth of colour and concentration, rarely seen in the Douro and with marked minerality from the schistous Douro soil. The palate has superb balance, with a powerful and rich bitter-chocolate taste, in hand with wild berry fruit, supported by well-structured and schist-edged tannins that will give these wines the traditional longevity for which the great Vintage Ports are so famous.

High West Distillery Son of BouryeJackalopes! Also called antelabbits, these are an antlered species of rabbit, a cross between a jackrabbit and an antelope. It is rumored that pockets of jackalope populations continue to persist in the American West, its native home. When cowboys gather by their campfires to sing at night, jackalopes are frequently heard singing back, mimicking the voices. When chased, the jackalope will use its vocal abilities to elude capture. For instance, when chased by people it will call out phrases such as, "There he goes, over there," in order to throw pursuers off its track. Legend suggests the best way to catch a jackalope is to lure it with whiskey, which they are particularly fond of. Once intoxicated, the animal becomes slower and easier to hunt. That's why High West created the original Bourye. Now, the legend continues with Son of Bourye, also a blend of straight Bourbon and rye whiskies, sure to attract even the most finicky of jackalopes. The bourbon (mashbill: 75% corn, 20% rye, 5% barley malt) is a minimum of 5 years old. The rye (mashbill: 95% rye, 5% barley malt) is a minimum of 3 years old. Please see HighWest.com for specific details by batch # of the whiskeys in this bottle (we like adjusting things somewhat every now and then according to our mood). By the way…Son of Bourye is best enjoyed around a campfire while looking at the Milky Way. Important! Jackalopes will attack if cornered or provoked. To avoid injury, quickly fall to the ground, remain calm and still, while humming the Roy Rogers song, "Happy Trails to You." If there are multiple Jackalopes, they will begin singing in the round with you. Make your escape after the second verse!

Ransom Old Tom GinRansom Old Tom gin begins with a whiskey wort or mash which is the first distillation (wort is the liquid that is ex- tracted from the mashing process of whiskey production as the mash slowly turns starches into sugars). A second distillate of neutral grain spirits is then infused with classic botanicals of juniper, orange peel, lemon peel, coriander seed, angelica root and cardamom pods. These two spirits join together in a single batch and are distilled for a second time, infusing their character to create a magnificent Old Tom gin that is then aged for several months in oak barrel. After a short period of barrel aging the gin is packaged and bottled and shows off its beautiful light onion skin hue in a clear apothecary style glass bottle.
