Top Spirits of 2015

Master's Keep is delicate yet distinctly Wild Turkey. With a smooth and silky introduction that transforms into caramel and vanilla sweetness, and finishes with a satisfying burst of spiciness and oak, it is one of the finest sipping whiskies to ever come from the distillery. It is a golden hue, perhaps lighter than one might expect from a 17 year old whiskey. The color is attributed to the whiskey’s time in the stone warehouses, where the liquid would have less interaction with the barrel’s charred wood thanks to the cooler temperatures within.

Delivered in a distinguished bottle that reflects the craftsmanship and passion that went into the Bourbon itself, Master's Keep is made of the highest quality crystalline glass. The bottle's unparalleled clarity showcases the rich color of the liquid, while the intricately embossed work of art brings the iconic image of the wild turkey to life in a way that you can see and feel in exquisite detail.

"Here’s what’s hard to believe: Jack Daniel’s has never released a barrel strength whiskey. That’s changing, with the release of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Proof, the company’s first-ever cask strength offering. The whiskey isn’t a terribly complicated idea: Take the JD Single Barrel Select and don’t water it down. Single Barrel is a consistent 94 proof, but these are bottled at whatever the cask gives you, ranging from 125 to 140 proof, depending on the bottle you get. The nose offers maple syrup, caramel sauce, and a little barrel char. On the body, it doesn’t drink like something that is 2/3rds alcohol. In fact, it really needs no water at all to be approachable, though less seasoned whiskey drinkers may want to add a splash. The palate is rich with more of that caramel, butterscotch, a touch of cloves and a lengthy, vanilla-fueled finish. Big, bold body — but it’s not overpowering in the slightest. The char isn’t overly evident here, which lets the sweetness really shine. All told, it’s a fantastic whiskey that stands as arguably the best thing ever to come out of the JD empire. Rating: A." -Drinkhacker.com

As a pioneer of whisky blending, Johnnie Walker thrives on innovation and has decided to add flavor and depth to its blends by aging and finishing them in different wood finishes.

The first in a series of wood finishes (each year JW will release a new wood finished blend), JW Select Casks – Rye Cask Finish was developed to appeal to the American palate. By aging the blend in first-fill American Oak casks for 10 years and finishing for three months in American Rye casks (Bulleit), Johnnie Walker has created a taste profile that resembles American Rye whiskies but has the smoothness of Johnnie Walker Scotch.

The single malt at the heart of this blend is Cardhu, a Speyside distillery near Archiestown, Moray, Scotland. The main blend of flavors are derived from the casks in which the blend has been matured. Rye casks elicit flavor notes of pepper and vanilla, while still maintaining the smooth taste of Johnnie Walker Scotch.

Aurora Borealis ("northern lights") is a natural light display in the sky produced when the magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind that the trajectories of charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma, mainly in the form of electrons and protons, precipitate them into the upper atmosphere where there energy is lost. This Crystal Head Aurora bottle was created in celebration of this natural display, with its beauty and mysterious visual properties.

Aurora uses high quality English wheat and pristine water from Newfoundland, Canada to craft an additive-free vodka. The vodka is five times distilled and filtered seven times. Three of the filtrations pass through layers of Herkimer diamonds as a final distinctive touch. Instead of exploring different flavors, Aurora was crafted using a different grain. It offers a drier, bolder and spicier vodka while staying true to the Crystal Head house-style. The bottle, with its delicate and iridescent metallized finish, is Crystal Head's tribute to this natural wonder of the world.

To celebrate their 325 years as distillers (since 1691, 11 generations), the Nolet family has released this special bottling of Ketel One. The copper color of the bottle is a nod to the role copper pot distillation plays in creating Ketel One. The ironwork decoration is inspired by the ironwork above the door to our distillery. 11 coins decorate the sides and back of the bottle. Each represents one of the eleven generations of Nolet family distillers.

The vodka inside is the same Ketel One that has garnered accolades and imbibers over the centuries: top quality vodka. Born of a gentle coal fire under the watchful eye of a Master Distiller, Ketel One is created in limited quantities to preserve its exceptional quality. Only the heart of the distillate, the center of each batch, is considered fine enough to be called Ketel One. The first 100 gallons, and the last, are separated and discarded as being either too harsh or too weak. What remains is consistently the smoothest and most elegant Vodka available. This special technique is time consuming and costly but can only be accomplished by using potstills. The result more than justifies the added care and expense as is readily apparent with the first sampling of Ketel One.

The attention to making the finest tequila possible starts in the agave fields. The plants grow in a healthy environment and are not harvested until each is over-ripe. A fully ripe agave will have a higher sugar content and acidity than those harvested earlier. This is the foundation for Ocho's concentrated, complex flavor profiles. When the agave reaches maturity, after 7 to 10 years of growth, the ‘jimadores’ (harvesters), along with their tool called ‘coa’ (sharp cutter), are responsible for cutting the leaves in order to get the heart of the plant or ‘piña’ (pineapple) and take it to the distillery for processing and producing tequila. Tequila Ocho values using traditional methods which keep the production process as natural and artisanal as possible. For that reason, only brick ovens are used. Slow cooking helps to obtain agave juice with plenty of sweetness. The ‘piñas’ are cooked (around 80-85 degrees Celsius) for 48 hours and sit in the oven for an additional 24 hours for cooling. The juice that results from the first 8 hours cooking is removed and discarded since it can contain bitterness. (Total 72 hours in oven). The cooked Agave is transferred from the ovens to the mill, where the agave is squeezed to separate the juices from the fibers. The juices are mixed with mineral rich water that comes forth from a natural spring at the distillery. Fermentation takes place in small (3,000 liter capacity) wooden vats made of pine. Proprietary, indigenous, natural yeast is used. The open vats allow airborne yeast and bacteria to freely mix with the must. Fermentation lasts between 4-5 days (96-120 hours), depending on the weather. The double distillation process is performed first in a stainless steel pot still of 3,500 liter capacity and then in a copper pot still of 300 liter capacity. This is done slowly at a low temperature allowing a generous cut of heads and tails to remain in the distillate. It is in these heads and tails where much of the flavor resides. The copper material of the second still imparts a special mouth feel and flavor to the tequila. Tequila Ocho ages in 200 liter American Oak barrels, previously used for ageing American Whiskey. Tequila Ocho uses barrels of many previous fillings -which have become ‘neutralized’- for the minimum time allowed by law to retain as much agave essence as possible. Tequila Ocho is not chill filtered to retain maximum flavor. The labeling is done by hand, with the same care and attention that is evidenced in every other step along the way. This is another example of the personal dedication to creating a tequila in which the human element is most important.

ArteNOM Selección de 1146 Tequila Añejo is produced by master distiller Enrique Fonseca at Casa Tequileña (elevation: 4,600 feet). Fonseca is a fifth-generation master distiller, and is celebrated for owning one of the largest agave plantations in the Los Altos region. His tequila is distilled twice, first through stainless steel pot stills and then again through copper-pot stills. Sixty percent of Selección ArteNOM 1146 Tequila Añejo was matured for two years in French oak, while the remainder was matured in French oak for three years. Then, the tequilas were expertly married together and aged for an additional year in used American white oak casks. By layering American oak on a French oak base, Fonseca "achieves a comfortable, familiar finish with unparalleled, underlying complexity," says Lustig. Selección ArteNOM 1146 Tequila Añejo has notes of toasted almonds and creamy vanilla, which are followed by layers of dried fruit and baking spices. The long, earthy finish is complemented by hints of vanilla, caramel and oak.

Named for the originator of world's largest rum brand, Don Facundo Bacardi Masso, the Facundo Rum Collection was born of last year's cele­bration of the 150th anniversary of the family-owned company. Facundo L. Bacardi, the current chairman, as well as the great-great grandson and namesake of the founder, took a hands-on role, and says, "We got together [at the celebration] and reflected that it was time to release some rums that family members have been enjoying for years." An alternate motive behind this sharing was to raise the image of what rum can be, he adds. "We have the rums that can compete with any Cognac and Scotch." - Jack Bettridge

Exquisito, blended from rums of seven, nine and 23 years old, is then finished in Sherry casks for about a month while the rums marry. As well as contributing an array of fruits—nectarine, pear and grape—the Sherry finish recalls the Bacardi family's Spanish heritage. Much of the carefully designed packaging of the collection is also inspired by brand and family history, including its time in Cuba.

Plantation 20th Anniversary Extra Old Barbados Rum represents the magnum opus of Gabriel's efforts to source the finest Caribbean rum and nurture it to fruition.

The Barbados rum is distilled from sugar cane, which is harvested and then crushed immediately in order to minimize the deterioration of the raw sugar. After the cane has been crushed, the remaining juice is fermented and then distilled through a combination of pot and column stills. While the column still produces a lighter, more sweet rum, the pot still produces a heavier and more vicious spirit.
