2005 Bodegas Puelles Gran Reserva Rioja

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Gran Reserva can also do with some decanting in advance as it has some reductive aromas when first poured after opening. After that it has some notes of hung game, spices, beef blood, iron, tea leaves and peat showing mostly as tertiary aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, with a fine thread of acidity going through its spine that is laced with fine tannins. It is quite easy to drink and quite a good price for a Gran Reserva.

2005 Balblair 13 Year Old "K&L Exclusive" Cask No. 224 Cask Strength Single Cask Highland Single Malt Whisky 750ml (ships as 1.5L)

The Balblair distillery is still one of the truly unsung heroes of the Highlands. Official record sets the founding in 1790, but illicit distillation was ubiquitous in these far-flung parts of the Highlands long before that. The little distillery just a stone's throw from Glenmorangie, offers some of the prettiest malt in Scotland. The water source, Allt Dearg, has slight peaty character which although not overtly detectable in the whisky serves to add complexity to the already layered malt coming from these small stills in Edderton. When the brand appro ...

2005 Bruichladdich Peated (Port Charlotte) 12 Year Old "Alexander Murray" Cask Strength Small Batch Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

The exciting new whiskies coming from Alexander Murray are proof that if you work hard enough, great single malt whisky deals are still out there. We can't buy cask strength Bruichladdich for any price on the open market right now and if you do find something it will almost definitely from the old regime and wildly expensive. When we see casks pop up from the period after the reopening in 2001, they're almost always privately owned by people who were smart enough to grab a cask when they were sale for £700 a pop. Those are basically unavailable to normal ...

Alexander Murray has been making some waves recently. They've used their buying power through large volume purchases for many of the country's largest chain retailers to secure stocks of some very special and rare distilleries.

The attack on the palate is quite fresh and elegant, and the medium to full-bodied wine has good concentration but a somewhat bitter and astringent finish.
