JOHN B. ANGEL’S ENVY RYE WHISKEY Wine Enthusiast Rated 94 This honey-hued rye has a remarkable aroma, melding cookie dough, hazelnut and marzipan. The same luscious flavors show up on the palate, rich and sweet, leading into a confected finish of Nutella sprinkled with nutmeg and cinnamon. The sugar-and-spice effect is due to 18 months finishing time in casks that first held Cognac, then Caribbean rum. $82.98 $94.99 AUTUMN NUEVEUNO REPOSADO TEQUILA This organic artesenal “rested” tequila is an intense golden color. With golden hues, it is bright and luminous with a powerful body. Aromas include dried fruits, walnuts, preserved cherries, apricot kernels, vanilla, caramel, cooked agave, floral aromas like violets, and spices such as nutmeg. On first impression it confirms all its olfactory promise, leaving vanilla, caramel, fruits, and spices. It is silky, sweet, and slightly astringent. The finish is very long-lasting. $62.98 $73.99 Distilled in Scotland's tallest stills, it is aged first in bourbon casks for smooth, fruity notes. Then this single malt whisky is finished in ruby port casks to create chocolate boldness and velvety depth. The Quinta Ruban offers a nose of rose scented Turkish delight, honeysuckle, tangerines, and dark chocolate. A soft, velvety texture leads to tastes of berries and nutmeg entwined with mint chocolate and Seville orange. The finish is bold and deep. $64.98 $75.99 COLIN GLENMORANGIE QUINTA RUBAN 14-YEAR-OLD SCOTCH WHISKEY

Zacapa XO is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks and pairs beautifully with dark chocolate and desserts. $89.98 $114.99 Spirit Competition #IWSC in August 2019 and BEST CONTEMPORARY GIN for the #WorldGinAwards in January 2020 , both in England. $26.98 $31.99 ROBERT BUENOS AIRES GIN This is a product of exquisite aromatic complexity.
