Masterson’s 10 Year Straight Barley Whiskey

New Release to Lukas Liquor Superstore

Masterson’s 10 Year-Old

Straight Barley Whiskey

“Limited Edition”

Masterson's 10 Year Straight Barley Whiskey 

Like the key ingredient in this whiskey, Bat Masterson was made of the West. A buffalo hunter, U.S. Marshal, gambler and newspaperman, Masterson was a man of refined character who would’ve loved the pleasing complexity of this whiskey.

The Whiskey

Masterson’s Barley is crafted with choice Canadian barley and mineral-rich glacial water, and it’s double distilled, helping to preserve the barley’s full flavor. The whiskey is then aged in white oak casks for 10 years to mellow and refine.

Aroma & Flavor

On the nose, you’ll discover a sweet sensation with hints of woody must, along with earth and oak. The taste is distinctly smooth, light and summery, featuring a fruit aftertaste that bursts in the mouth without being too powerful.

Hands down one of the most unique whiskey’s I have come across lately. A very complex bouquet of caramel, toffee and creamy malt with a perfectly matched taste. There is a lot of exploring to do with this fun new whiskey. This will become a highly sought-after limited edition release that’s for sure, so act fast.

Angels Envy KSBW Lukas Liquor Edition

 

“From the Cellars of Lincoln Henderson”

Back this past September I had the honor of meeting with Angel’s Envy “Guardian of Whiskey”, Mark Boweaks and having him help assist us in creating our very own blend of Angels Envy KSBW. Unfortunately on that very day it was announced that Angel’s Envy founder and Bourbon Legend, Lincoln Henderson had just passed away at the age of 75. The mood was sad and yet reflective upon the loss of someone like Lincoln. For a long while, Mark had shared with me many stories and accomplishments that Lincoln had done over the years. Some I knew of, others I did not but in the end I realized how special Angel’s Envy was to Lincoln and his family.  He will be missed, but always remembered.

“The Art of Blending”

& Why I Love My Job

Mark had brought to us three different barrel samples that we would use to create this unique blend. Sample A was extremely bright and shimmering with rye and honey. Sample B was more balanced with vanilla, a sturdy oakiness adding depth and balance to the whiskey. Sample C was absolutely amazing all around with complex rich chocolate notes all throughout the bouquet and flavor. We automatically knew that Sample C would be the building block upon this blend.

After familiarizing ourselves with the barrel samples, Mark went about showing me the process of how Angel’s Envy is blended. We took each barrel sample and added different increments into a beaker, nosed and tasted each one. During this process we kept a journal of the exact amounts being added and subtracted per each newly created blend.  All together we created over 15 different blends and narrowed it down to a final 3, then down to the one that is now here in the store.

Angel’s Envy “Lukas Liquor Edition” Barrel Increments

Barrel Sample A 21% (shimmering, honeyed-rye)

Barrel Sample B 22% (balanced with oak)

Barrel Sample C 57% (big, complex chocolate)

Angels Envy Barrel Head

The entire process took almost two hours and was well worth the time spent. The passion and quality that Mark and the people at Angel’s Envy have offered Lukas and now our amazing customers is something to behold. Over the years I have selected many different “single barrels” but never a blended whiskey. I and Lukas Liquor Superstore are proud to offer this new hand-selected whiskey for our customers and know that you will enjoy it as much as we did creating it specifically for you.

Final Tasting Notes

Nose: Soft, yet asserting bouquet. Complex  array of dark baked fruits covered in chocolate. Vanilla wood-sugar and honey. Hints of spiced orange and banana. With a splash of water the aromas open up an even larger canopy of fruitiness. Clove sprinkled bananas.

Taste: Creamy mouth-feel. Beautiful marriage of chocolate, vanilla and rye. The added depth of chocolate is everywhere. The rye grain brings up the back end with a juicy spiced honey, then changing over to more chocolate. With a little added water the entire whiskey shifts gears and opens up to reveal an excellent balance of fruity notes and spiced chocolate covered bananas.

Finish: Warm, silky and lingering. The chocolate notes fade with a playful spiciness of the rye grain. Perfect for an after dinner whiskey.

Mega thanks to the late Lincoln Henderson and Mark Boweak of Angel’s Envy for their help in making this blended whiskey happen and we owe the world to our outstanding Lukas Liquor Superstore customers who make these special barrels become a reality. Without your support and business, none of this would be possible.

Lukas Liquor Superstore’s Angel’s Envy Special Blend yielded approximately 360 bottles so we have more than enough to go around.

Balvenie TUN 1401 Batch #9

SOLD OUT

New Limited & Rare Release at Lukas Liquor Superstore

Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch #9

Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Balvenie TUN 1401 Batch #9 

Inspired by and produced in one of the oldest warehouses at our distillery, Batch 9 is a skillful marriage of some of the rarest treasures from Warehouse 24. It represents an unrepeatable selection of spirits sourced from eleven traditional whisky casks and three sherry butts, whose ages span a number of decades, and which have all been hand-selected by David Stewart. The whisky rested for several months in Tun 1401 – one of the distillery’s unique marrying vessels – to create a single malt that is greater than the sum of its already precious parts.

 

Tasting Notes

Nose: An intricate blend of elegant oak, dark fruits and marmalade.

Taste: Opulent sherried fruitiness and mature oak tannins balanced with hints of honey and dark chocolate.

Finish: A spicy outburst which lingers on the rich, syrupy finish.

This expression has been exclusively crafted for the U.S. market, and follows the hugely successful Batch 3 and Batch 6, the only other Tun 1401 expressions released in the United States.

Due to the extreme rarity of this whisky, bottles will only be available in store, on a first come, first serve basis. Lukas Liquor Superstore will NOT take phone call, fax or email reservations under any circumstances.
