Whisky Season is Here

If you ordered a bottle of the Kilchoman K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky on pre-order, we’ll be getting those organized and ready as soon as we can.  We're a bit behind at the moment, but our warehouse guys are working hard to get you your booze!  As soon as pre-arrival orders have been processed the whisky will be available on the shelf for purchase.  Hooray!

We tasted it earlier this morning and every single K&L employee in the Redwood City store has agreed: it’s amazing.  Kilchoman is the real deal and this is just more tangible proof.  No more pre-orders now that the bottles have arrived, so the price will now be $109.99.  Anyone who ordered one of these is going to be seriously stoked!  Anyone who wants one now can get one next week!  There’s a distinct lack of peated, sherry-aged whisky right now, so hopefully this scratches that itch.

In the meantime, if you’re just so excited about Kilchoman and you’re going to burst if you don’t get something new this instant, check out the new Kilchoman 100% Islay 2nd Edition Single Malt Whisky for $86.99Aged entirely in Bourbon casks, this whisky is light, lean, peppery, and full of citrus, much like a mezcal or blanco tequila.  I can’t wait for you all to taste the sherry-aged version of this when our cask arrives later this winter.  It’s soaking up all that richness as we speak.

Also wanted to make sure that everyone noticed the new calendar on the right-side margin of the page.  The tastings will be updated there from now on, so you don’t have to wait for the blog update.  Tonight is Aberlour and Scapa in Redwood City, while SF will host Bryan Davis from the Lost Distillery and his new smoky single malts.

Just a quick post today.  Cask one is here!  We’re pumped.  Get ready for more.
