What to store in your pri­vate locker:

La­gavulin Is­lay sin­gle-malt Scotch whisky, 16 years old at Bar Jack­a­lope If you can snag a bot­tle of the 21-year-old, you’d bet­ter lock it away. But the 16-year-old will do just fine, and it hap­pens to be on the menu at Bar Jack­a­lope. $86 Blanton’s The Orig­i­nal Sin­gle Bar­rel Ken­tucky Straight Bour­bon Whiskey at Bar Jack­a­lope The beau­ti­ful bot­tle is rea­son enough to covet this bour­bon. But then you open it, and those first hints of caramel, cin­na­mon and vanilla will have you swoon­ing. $100

Nikka Cof­fey grain whiskey at Steak & Whisky This is not the in­ex­pen­sive stuff used to round out a blend — it’s soft and light, with a honey nose and trop­i­cal fruit fin­ish. Try it with soda to re­ally bring out the fruit and mint fla­vors. $70
