What We're Drinking

2000 Labégorce, Margaux $39.99

A great value in Bordeaux! This bottle is mature enough to drink now, but has time in hand if you want to keep it in the cellar for the future. We love it for its laid back elegance and classic balance. A must try for your next nice steak dinner.

How to Buy Single Malt Casks: A Practical Guide

There are two places to find whisky in Scotland for exclusive K&L bottlings: straight from the distillery or from the warehouse of an independent bottler. With so much demand on the stock of distilleries from the recent surge in popularity for single malt, their supplies are buttened up tighter than Dolly Parton's corset. They don't have enough Scotch for themselves let alone for the likes of us. There are a few exceptions in the folks we have built good relationships with (people who have grown to like a roaming band of loud Americans knocking on their door asking for hooch), but for the most part it is all about finding whisky from the independent bottlers who have been buying casks from all over Scotland for the past few decades.

Higher Dosage in Champagne Cocktails #2: Moet Ice Imperial "Final Word"

Moet Ice was created to drink on the rocks.

On Friday I posted a piece on using the Moet & Chandon "Nectar Imperial" Rosé Champagne ($59.99) in French 75’s. I was very happy with the results of using a higher dosage Champagne and dropping the amount of simple syrup in the recipe, and promised myself that I would continue experimenting. Last night I decided to try a completely new cocktail, based on the green colored and festive Final Word. This time I used the Moet & Chandon "Ice Imperial" Champagne ($56.99), which Moet developed to be served on Ice.
