There's a lot of balls in the air right now. We're getting small allocations of all types of limited releases at the moment, little drops of Michter's 10 and 20, scattered mature Nikkas, dollops of Weller 107 and Rock Hill Farms. There are three to six bottle drops of things coming in and out of each retail location right now, but nothing you'll be able to waitlist or get an email about. You've gotta be in the right place at the right time. If you watch the web tomorrow I think you'll see more of these things appear on the K&L site. Just keep checking back in! In the meantime, I managed to secure a reasonable about of this stuff, if Blanton's is your bag.

Blanton's Original Single Barrel Bourbon $49.99 - The nose is very deep and satisfying. The taste has a masterful start with powerful dry vanilla notes in perfect harmony with strong hints of honey and caramel. The long, creamy caramel holds the fort until some late soft peppers arrive to spice things up. The underlying dryness amid the spice and honey really makes for a bourbon that should suit all tastes. "Double Gold Medal" winner at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
