By Whisk(e)yLovers... ForWhisk(e)yLovers
Happy Whisk(e)y Wednesday, WhiskeyLover...one day late!

If you are a serious Scotch Whisky aficionado, then you probably know who Dr. Bill Lumsden is. If you don't know who he is, then read up here, now...the man is the pentultimate creative artist when it comes to whisky making, and a living legend. No one manipulates the impact wood has on aging whisky better or as elegantly as Dr. Lumsden, and to drink his spirts is truly to be drinking the nectar of the Gods.

And so this week we sent our man Nicki The Neck on a mission: Get us a spectacular Single Malt from Glenmorangie that isn't available anywhere else...and I mean ANYWHERE. As always The Neck scored...HUGE, with an extra-special limited release whisky from the distillery:


We have only six (6!) bottles available...and once they are gone, they are gone for good. So if you want one, make haste.

And for those of you who need a little inspiration* for what do to with those hands when you aren't drinking...
* If this somehow offends you, please don't email me, just hit the unsubscribe link at the bottom of this email.

Wait...isnt a "quartet"...oh, never mind!

And dont forget about our Independent Distillers Essentials mixed cases. with $25 flat rate shipping on all cases.
As always, and with the utmost sincerity, I hope everyone is safe, and healthy!

I wish you the best of spirits,

Nikka Coffey Malt
Japanese Whisky
The originality of this 100% malted barley expression lies in its unique distillation method. However it is not categorized as “malt whisky” but as “grain whisky” since it is not distilled in a pot still.

Malted barley is distilled in a “Coffey still”, a traditional continuous still which is normally used to produce grain whisky. This unique production method results in extraordinary flavors and texture.

Color: Dark amber.

Palate: Vanilla, chocolate, nutmeg.

Finish: Creamy, lingering, sweet, malty.
Jefferson's Ocean Aged
Wheated Bourbon, Voyage 19

Jefferson's Ocean Aged Wheated Bourbon aged at Sea, Voyage 19 is unique among all other voyages. The bourbon barreled for this voyage uses wheat as its small grain instead of typical rye.

Tasting Notes:

Color: Warm Bronze

Aroma: The aroma is bright with notes of toffee and Cracker-Jacks.

Booker’s Bourbon Batch 2020-01 "Granny’s Batch"
Granny's Batch is the first batch of Booker's Bourbon released in 2020. It is named after Margaret Beam, the youngest child of Jim Beam and the mother of Booker Noe.

The Kentucky straight bourbon is aged for 6 years, 4 months, and 21 days with the barrels selected by Fred Noe. The bourbon is uncut and unfiltered, and bottled at 126.4 proof. There is plenty of vanilla and spice notes and finishes with the taste of clean wood.

Despite its strength, we think it’s most compelling neat — yes, it’s a strong drink but why not taste bourbon in its purest form?

But, please, don’t turn it hand sanitizer, as some people are suggesting you do with alcohol in these crazy times. This is truly meant for sipping and savoring.

As is true with all Booker's limited edition releases, once it gone...so
