This is the place to sample whiskies. We reserved a tasting session and it was well worth the time and price. Our host was the owner and he was very entertaining and informative. A great pub atmosphere.

A bar in City Centre where you run into locals and travelers alike. Bartenders very knowledgeable about whiskey, and they love helping you find something you like. Very friendly crowd. Did not try any food.

So, these guys really know their whisky (and there's 700 to choose from) but better than that they're very helpful, friendly even when it came to us having to leave to go elsewhere... unsurprisingly the locals (and newbies) are all helpful and friendly too, good...More
