Woodford Reserve Double Oaked 

This flavorful bourbon whiskey is sure to delight the senses and warm you from the inside out. As you draw in your glass for a sip, warm scents of caramel and toasted oak greet the nose. On the tongue, you’ll experience flavors of vanilla, dark caramel, fruit, and spices. This smooth sip promises a long and creamy finish with lingering hints of honeyed apple. 

 

Hugel Alsace Gentil 2018

The elegant color of this white blend looks lovely on a holiday table, and its rich flavor profile is sure to leave dinner guests feeling merry and bright with each sip. Dry on the palate and expressively aromatic, this wine promises fresh floral and fruity scents and a refreshing, balanced mouthfeel. With the body of Pinot Gris and the sophistication of Riesling, you simply can’t go wrong with this bottle.

 

Glenmorangie Nectar d’Or Sauternes 

This pure, smooth spirit is matured in fine casks. On the nose, you’ll experience aromas of lemon tart and fresh vanilla pods followed by the fragrance of dates, ginger, coconut, and a hint of toasted oak. On the palate, you’ll taste silken layers of crème caramel, gingerbread, toasted almonds, meringue, and honeycomb. With a sweet and mellow finish, this scotch promises lingering traces of ginger and nutmeg. 

 

Red Schooner Voyage 9 Red 

This Malbec, made from Argentinian grapes, is produced in California’s Napa Valley at Caymus Vineyards. The “Caymus style” promises wines that are dense, dark, powerful, and supple, and this varietal is no exception. Offering scents of ripe plums and cherries, this wine features flavors of French oak and soft tannins. Luxuriate in each sip as this wine’s lush softness washes over your palate.
