Belle Meade Bourbon

750mL

Regular Price $39.99 Special Price $34.99
with Binny's Card

A smooth sipper blended from high rye bourbons. In the ever-growing bourbon selection this has been a consistently excellent bottle. The spicy rye notes are balanced by hints of honey, maple and vanilla and baked cherries. Bottled at 90.4 and non-chillfiltered for a rich, coating mouthfeel.

Caledonia Spirits Barr Hill Gin

750mL

Regular Price $39.99 Special Price $34.99
with Binny's Card

Gin distilled from honey in Vermont. The honey imparts subtle floral aromatics that temper some of the more piney juniper notes and give the gin a rounder and softer mouthfeel. Wonderful with a citrusy tonic and of course at home in a classic Bee’s Knees.

Lot No. 40 Pure Pot Still Canadian Rye Whisky

750mL

Regular Price $39.99 Special Price $34.99
with Binny's Card

This 100% rye is our favorite Canadian export. Full bodied and loaded with decadent butterscotch, caramel and spice notes. It never gets to the over-the-top spice character one might expect from such a rye heavy mashbill. A great whisky to sip on its own or for spicing things up in a classic cocktail. Maybe the best rye whisky on the shelves at this price point.

Kavalan Distillery Select Single Malt Whisky

750mL

Regular Price $49.99 Special Price $39.99
with Binny's Card

The welcoming nose opens with dried apricot, pineapple, fruit cocktail syrup, delicate white pepper, honey and gentle cereal grains. Soft, round and gentle on the palate, waves of tropical fruit and oak spices give depth to the luscious mouthfeel. The fruit parade continues into the finish where a grilled stone fruit note slowly builds. A whisky of this color and density of flavor aged entirely in refill barrels is nothing short of a whiskymaking marvel.

New Riff Distilling Kentucky Straight Bourbon Bottled in Bond

750mL

$39.99

Our favorite new bourbon producer. On the nose, this high rye bourbon exudes lovely notes of baked cherry, baked apple, orange zest, cinnamon, vanilla nougat and clove. The viscous palate is loaded with flavors of caramel sauce, vanilla candy, baked orchard fruits, cinnamon, and oak spice. The finish starts with a big burst of cinnamon and oak that fades slowly into black pepper, vanilla candy, toffee, and baked apple and pear.

El Dorado Special Reserve 15 Year Old Demerara Rum

750mL

Regular Price $49.99 Special Price $44.99
with Binny's Card

15 to 25 year old rums from both column and pot stills, including some of the only working wooden pot stills on the planet. History in a bottle. Sweet citrus, brown sugar syrup and baking spices mingle on the nose. Dried dark fruits and ripe tropical notes surge forward on the palate before a slowly fading finish of honey, molasses and banana. The best deal in rum.

Glenfarclas 12 Year Old

750mL

Regular Price $54.99 Special Price $49.99
with Binny's Card

This underrated Speyside classic hits all the right notes for lovers of sherry barrel aged Scotch whiskies. Rich dried fruits, warm baking spices and notes of leather and honey make this a perfect pair for a medium bodied cigar.

Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style Kentucky Straight Bourbon

750mL

$54.99

A nose full of dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar and vanilla wafts gently from the glass. The palate contains flavors of caramelized and burnt sugar, vanilla and nutmeg creating an interesting and well-balanced flavor profile. The finish is long and surprisingly smooth for a whiskey at 115 proof. Flavors of vanilla, pepper, oak and tree nuts linger on the tongue. This remains the Whiskey Hotline’s top pick for premium bourbon.

New Handpicked Single Barrels from Casa Noble Tequila

With the weather teasing us that it might finally dry out and warm up our thoughts have turned to tequila. A great tequila is about as versatile a spirit as it gets, equally at home in flavorful cocktails or in a rocks glass sipped neat like other finely aged spirits. Of course The Whiskey Hotline prefers our own handpicked single barrels and thankfully we just received a trio of picks from one of our favorite producers, Casa Noble.

Led by 7th generation master distiller Pepe Hermosillo, Casa Noble’s tequilas sit at the intersection of generational expertise, triple distillation and organically grown agaves. The soft citrus and honeyed character of these agaves is elevated and complemented by ripe fruity notes from the triple distillation and gentle spice from time spent aging in French oak casks.

Casa Noble Anejo 5 Year Old Single Barrel #777 Binny's Handpicked

750mL

$89.99

What a nose! Orange and lime zest, a bouquet of tropical fruits, cooked agave, vanilla, pepper, cinnamon and clove and some lingering whiffs of honey. The palate shows soft and round flavors of baked apricot, guava, mango, agave nectar, cinnamon and oak spice all balanced by a rich toffee and vanilla. On the finish, the tropical fruit menagerie slips slowly into honeyed agave, cardamom, and clove. An easy sipper with unexpected complexity that begs to be tasted again.

Casa Noble Reposado Single Barrel #1108 Binny's Handpicked

750mL

$64.99

On the nose, tropical fruits mingle with fresh cut grass, cinnamon, vanilla, toffee, white pepper and oak spice and a round dose of honeyed agave nectar. The fresh tropical fruits lead on the palate with a nice underbelly of vegetal agave, vanilla toffee, and some balancing baking spices. The finish highlights the fruit flavors as sweet vanilla oak slowly builds in the enduring finish. This is exactly what we look for in a great reposado tequila, a balance of youthful fruit and sweet and spicy aged oak notes.

Casa Noble Joven Tequila Single Barrel #1082 Binny's Handpicked

750mL

$59.99

Without a doubt, The Whiskey Hotline’s favorite bottling from Casa Noble. This Joven was aged for 6 weeks in French oak. The nose shows dark cacao and toffee that buttress fresh cooked agave, vanilla lanolin, mango, apricot, lime, and pepper. On the taste, agave and white pepper flavors lead while subtle flavors of tropical fruit creep across the tongue as cardamom and white pepper build. The finish is pleasant and warming with pepper and cinnamon ultimately winning out over beds of fresh cooked agave, tropical fruits, and vanilla bean. Barely a hint of the 102 bottling proof. Magic in a bottle.

Cherries, brown sugar, pepper and vanilla are all layered throughout the robust nose. The soft and round palate brings a touch more sweetness with strong vanilla, caramelized sugars and sweet corn. Cinnamon and clove build gradually giving balance to the sweeter flavors throughout the long finish.
