Spirits Web Auction Closing Soon

Every once in a while, K&L's Spirits Department reaches deep into the vault to offer some very special bottles on the website's auction platform. Now unlike wine, we are prohibited from auctioning consignments of spirits from private individuals, which makes it all that much more difficult for us to find stuff to put on the block. Nonetheless, we've got a few gems that we've managed to hold back. Only a few hours left on these lots, so if you see something you want get at it before the hammer comes down.

1999, Karuizawa K&L Exclusive Single Cask (2 bottles)

The 1999 Single Cask ExclusiveThese cask represent one of our first great finds after taking the reins of the spirits department. This ultra powerful youngish offering and the far older sister cask we acquired from the legendary distillery after it closed will most likely be the last two casks we'll ever see state side.

2011 Thomas H Handy Rye

2011, Thomas H Handy Sazerac Rye

With everybody and literally their mother (I've spoken to several mums looking for the perfect gift for Jr) crapping their pants to find Jim Murray's Whiskey of the year, 2013 Yamazaki Sherry, here's a an opportunity to actually buy something that once held that title. Here it is 2013's WHISKEY OF THE YEAR - but since it's 2014 probably not as good any more, right?

Paul Marie Et Fils Devant La Porte 58 Year Old Cask Strength Single Barrel

Paul Marie Et Fils Devan La Porte Single Cask

This one is for Nicki P-Dubs, the myth and the man. Devant La Porte is the Cognac that started it all for our favorite Frenchman and it remains the best single cask cognac I've yet to encounter. Just an outrageous amount of depth and power, but somehow belies the massive alcohol content. The Chef d'Oeuvre on the opening shot! Thank you for this Mr. Palazzi. Can't wait for the next one.

Auction ends Nov 10th, 7pm PST.

PC5-PC10 plus some auxiliary goodies

Port Charlotte Tasting Lot

I'm actually shock and a little sad that this massive collection has absolutely ZERO bids right now. It's a magnificent collection of the first 6 releases of the very special (and perhaps defunct?) cask strength version of Bruichladdich's heavily peated whisky. In addition you have a few fun extras to round out what could be one of the best Port Charlotte tastings in history. Tailor made, just a mere click away. If no one takes it, we'll just split it up and get $1K+ for the PC5 by itself on the shelf. PC6-9 are already commanding upwards of $400 on the secondary market. Someone needs to jump on this before it's too late.

Auction ends Nov 10th, 7pm PST.
