    Nice bar. You could sit there a while from time to time and check stuff out. A shot is cheaper than a bottle - :)

    Yeah, when I go there I usually try out something I've heard about but don't want to drop the money for a whole bottle until I know if I like it.

    and I agree a shot in way cheaper than the bottle.

    I once went to a whiskey bar that specialized in Scotches with a fellow aficionado and dropped $250 on tastes before I knew it... so be careful!

    The place was called Roots and Rye in Santana Row in San Jose. They have over 100 whiskeys available and we tried WAY too many of them. Yes Yellow cab was my ride home. :)

    In the Total Wine and More today, I found an Auchentoshan 18 Year Old 1997 Old Particular. Under $100 so I bought it. Shuld be smooth, mellow and slightly sweet, I will try it tonight.

    The photo is washed out. Although this is a light scotch think of more honey colored rather than yellow. It’s a sweet drop, with notes both floral and clove- very drinkable. Opens up with a little water.

    This cooler weather is bringing back my taste for whiskey. Had a shot of Macallan 12 last night watching Bourdain with 1 cube.

    Probably not as cool here in DFW but the few cool days we’ve had recently gave me the same craving. Liquor store run coming soon.
