The Legend Returns

Our second batch is here. Made only for us. No other retailer gets this. Our customer service manager Joel Nicholas still claims that the Camut 15 is the single best spirit he’s ever tasted of any kind. It’s a very big deal. Relationships, baby. Relationships!!!!!!!

Adrien Camut 15 Year Old K&L Exclusive Calvados $115.99 -- The Camut brothers have fully dedicated their lives to making Calvados just as their grandfather did; they believe in their craft and they get a sense of pride from doing it. In sports, there are athletes with raw natural ability and others who succeed through sheer hard work and determination. When you combine both of those elements you get Michael Jordan, or, in the world of fine spirits, you get Camut Calvados. There is no doubt that Camut is the DRC or Château Lafite of the Calvados world--they are the very best, hands down.  Getting them to make us a special 15 year old Calvados, an aged expression they have never bottled before, was not something that came from discussions of money or sales margins. Our exclusive K&L bottling came after a long night of food, drink and brotherhood at their country farm--talk of the Americans storming the beach at Normandy and the special bond between our two countries ever since. This 15 year is the perfect Calvados and showcases exactly what defines greatness in distillation: the elegant essence of apple on the nose, subtle vanilla and wood on the palate and warm cider on the finish. It's impeccable and perfect in every way, quite possibly the best spirit we've ever acquired for K&L. It's a very big deal for our store and those who love Calvados will understand how special this is. The Camuts do not make special blends for people, but they have done so for us. Only 300 bottles available.
