Hot whiskies. Hot Prices. Hot Deals.
Glenmorangie 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky $83.99 (elsewhere $99) - If I had to pick my favorite whisky from the LVMH line up, including all the Ardbeg expressions, I'd easily choose the 18 year old from Glenmorangie. It's the best whisky they make for the price and everybody likes it – beginners, casual sippers, experts, whisky geeks. It's so gentle, supple, rich, and full of flavor. The problem for me at K&L was getting a competitive price. I've got plenty of $100 options that are more exciting to many of our serious whisky fans, but at $83.99, now we're talking! Removing $16 from the price tag makes a world of difference. All of a sudden we're talking serious deal! It's not that the Glenmorangie isn't worth $100, because it is. It's just that it's really worth $83.99. Kyle and I both agree that this is the hottest deal in the store. Soft stone fruit, caramel, creme brulee, vanilla, all the way to the finish. We won't be able to sustain this pricing past this order, so when we sell through we have to raise it back up.
Old Pulteney 17 Year Old Single Malt Whisky $79.99 - If you thought that the "Best Whisky of the Year" Pulteney 21 was great, then you'll really like the 17. David OG, Kyle, and I all scratched our heads when Jim Murray came out with that award because, much like John Lennon famously said about Ringo ("He's not even the best drummer in the Beatles!"), the 21 isn't even the best Old Pulteney whisky, let alone the best in the world. The 17 year is the better option, brimming with dried apricots, sweet cereal grains, and plenty of mouth-smacking goodness. It's simply good, ole' fashioned Scotch for people who like Scotch. It's the clear winner of the bunch and it also happens to be riding its older brother's coattails to higher pricing. We cleaned out every bottle in the state to sustain this fantasic deal as long as possible. Once we sell through the price will take a $15 increase up to around $100 a bottle. I love the OP17 for $80. Will I still love it at $100? Hot whisky can command a hot price. None hotter than ours at the moment!
