Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

 The Cairdeas for 2014 is a Laphroaig that has been double matured first in “first fill” ex-bourbon casks then in Amontillado hogsheads for one year.


Laphroaig Cairdeas 2014 Tasting Notes

Color: The Amontillado barrels give it a rich burnt orange.

Nose:  Starts off with dusty, gentle cinnamon hints and then distinctive lemon zest.

Taste: This moves into earthy figs and dates before nutty, creamy brazil nuts come to the fore.

Finish: This complex nose then changes with elements of carbolic soap before finally finishing with a lovely lingering salted liquorice note.

New Beer: Rogue, Goose Island, Horny Goat


Rogue Farms Marionberry Braggot
We made this braggot with our own marionberries, hops, barley, and honey. Situated across from 40 acres of Rogue hops, 119 Colonies of bees were carefully kept, fed, and smoked and the honey was uncapped, extracted, filtered and finally infused into a refreshing Marionberry Braggot.

Goose Island The Muddy
Imperial stout. Amplified sweetness with licorice notes.

Horny Goat Oktoberfest
A traditional Munich-Style Oktoberfest, this malty amber lager provides a full-bodied and smooth taste. German Noble hops take a backseat in this “celebration for your mouth.”

New Beer: Boulevard, Mikkeller, De Molen & Anchorage


Boulevard Hibiscus Gose
Our version of an unusual, yet resurgent, beer style. It pays tribute to the pleasantly sour, slightly salty wheat beers that originated in Goslar and became popular in Leipzig, Germany around the late 1800’s. A great introductory sour beer, Hibiscus Gose receives coriander and sea salt during boiling, then we steep dried hibiscus flowers at the end to create a vibrant pink hue (really, though, it’s pink!). The result is a tangy, sweet and sour ale with a refreshing citrus character.

Mikkeller Spontancherry Frederiksdal
Oak aged sour cherry ale.

Mikkeller Jackie Brown
Mikkellers tribute to the foul-mouthed stewardess Jackie Brown from Quentin Tarantino’s movie of the same name. It’s a roasty, chocolaty brown ale with hints of coffee and licorice. Being a Mikkeller brew the malts are inevitably complimented by a great amount of hop bitterness, aroma and flavour.
Ingredients : Water, malt (pale, munich, cara-pils, cara-crystal, brown and chocolate), flaked oats, hops (nugget, simcoe and centennial) and ale yeast.

Mikkeller Monk’s Brew
Monk’s Elixir is a heavy dark Belgian ale inspired by the Trappist monasteries of Rochefort and Westvleteren. The beer style, characterized by its high content of alcohol, distinguishes itself by its dominant yeast character, delicious malt background and balanced hop notes.

De Molen/Anchorage Mud & Funk
Gabe Fletcher (Anchorage Brewing Co.) and Menno Olivier (De Molen) met up in Bodegraven to brew what became Mud & Funk. The beer started off as an Oatmeal Imperial Stout. It was then aged in a mixture of bourbon and wine barrels and a brett culture and allowed to take its time to mature.

4 Hands Barrel Aged Late Harvest Saison


Last Year our friends at 4 Hands brewed a beer called Late Harvest Saison specially for the Kansas City market. Around that time, we gave a barrel of George Dickel 9 Year Single Barrel Tennesee whiskey to our friends at The Big O to age their ginger liqueur. After that use, we gave the barrel to 4 Hands, and they aged a batch of Late Harvest Saison for us. From the label…

Barrel Aged Late Harvest Saison is a special one-off project in collaboration with Josh Eans, Linda Hezel, Holly Hayden, Lukas Liquor, and the Big O. We aged Late Harvest Saison in barrels that originally held Tennessee whiskey and then aged The Big O Ginger Liqueur. The end result is a beautiful aged saison with big ginger notes.

This bottle release is exclusive to Lukas Liquor. We’re limiting it to 4 bottles per person for the first day, and opening it to no limit starting tomorrow.

De Struise Brouwers


beers from Belgium are back!

Struise Pannepot 2013
In the early 1900s, the village of De Panne, close to the French border, was famous for two things — the ‘Pannepots,’ or fishing boats, that could be seen along the coast, and the unique dark ale enjoyed by the local fishermen. Our Old Fisherman’s Ale is a tribute to these hardy sailors and their rich, flavorful brew. Unfiltered. Unpasteurized.

Struise Pannepot Reserva 2010
Our PGR has aged for 24 months on oak barrels and has been bottled for the first time on the 27th of December 2007. The main difference with the Pannepot Reserva is that PGR matured the last ten months on Calvados oak barrels, adding extra complexity to the beer. We dedicate this beer as a tribute to Jeppe & Michael of Ølbutikken in Denmark. Those gentlemen were the first to discover our beers on an International basis back in 2004 and are responsable somehow for our beers being all over the globe since then. As a token of gratitude towards Jeppe & Michael, the first shipment of PGR was scheduled to Ølbutikken so they could be the first to launch its commercialisation.

Struise Black Albert
This Belgian Royal Stout was brewed as a tribute to one of America’s best pubs. Jennifer and Chris Lively who run the place may be proud of Ebenezer’s Pub. Not only do they have 35 beers on draught, most of these are hard to find Supreme Belgian Ales. Above that, they have one of the most extensive bottle-conditioned beer lists through different bottling dates we have ever seen. Not only can you drink almost any Belgian beer, the worlds best brewery’s are represented. A lot of the guests talk about the American Kulminator, yet with that difference that the Belgian inspired food, is simply great. Black Albert was brewed and crafted with a 100% Belgian ingredients. Pours a blacker than black beer with an inch of dark tan head that lingers as it cascades into itself. Nice aroma of bitter-sweet chocolate, fresh torrified coffee beans, barley, candy sugar, complex fruits, and floral hops. At the front, there is spiced baker’s chocolate, fresh mocha, caramel like barley touches, and underlying hints of dried fruits which marries the back of your palate and features a Top, and well integrated but not overbearing hop flavour. The after-taste is well balanced and shows a panorama of extreme sensations like chocolate and coffee bitters, a plum cake richness that covers the palate, and a crisp impression of hop bitters that brings elegance and freshness into this massive brew.

Struise Eliott Brew
Behold the second of’s Worldwide Masters Series! This request edition ale is the crafted alchemy of a party of some of Europe’s finest brewers, Mikkel Bjergsø and Kristian Keller of Mikkeller (Copenhagen, Denmark) and Urbain Coutteau, Carlo Grootaert, Phil Driessens, and Peter Braem of De Struise Brouwers (Woesten-Vleteren, Belgium). Both breweries have attracted considerable international attention for their artful interpretations of traditional ale styles enlived by a rich sense of invention. And both are also very highly esteemed by the international community of beer tasters. We hope you enjoy this unique little treasure.
