Heaven on Earth? You be the judge.
I went out with some trader types in lower Manhattan (Tribeca) to a hard to spot joint called The Brandy Library. Walls filled with every imaginable iteration of every scotch I've tried or wanted to try. Hundreds of bottles line the walls and there are no duplicates -- I asked. I highly recommend a visit if you're in New York City.
I ordered a Laphroaig 15 but too bad they were out AND was informed that it will no longer be produced as the distiller plans to release the 18. So STOCK UP!!! Went with the Laphroaig Cask Strength and ordered a Cragganmore 12 for my new pal Willie. High five Willie for bringing me to this place.
