Hmm, seems reasonably accessible from MoCo. Appears to even have parking. I feel sketchy carrying a bag full of liquor on the Metro and/or someone will rob me for my delicious spirits.

Yes, give the Highland Park 12 a whirl. 18 is a bit spendy.

Frankly, if you are nervous about riding the metro in broad daylight with a bottle or two of scotch in a bag, the selection of which scotch to buy is the least of your problems. I'm pretty sure you could ride the metro with a $100 bill stapled to your shirt and you'd be fine.

(was not really serious about that)

It's just inconvenient to have to get on the damn Metro to go buy booze.

Fair enough. But on the flipside, you can sample a dram or two at the shop and not have to worry about driving home.

I have to drive just to get to the Metro confused.gif

Lousy suburbs.

They do -- they are in a mall which is part of a medical complex (its weird), so it is gated parking, but they do validate your pass for an hour. There is a DC thread where I extol the virtues of Ace, and talk about all the cool little cubby holes where things hide.

 

Honestly, I spent a few months in DC this summer, and the Metro is great. I even took the Green line which seems to make people shudder. In one month I had business in Philly, DC, and NYC, and the Metro feels the best and safest by FAR, with NYC trailing and SEPTA in Philly way at the bottom of the list.

 

HP12 is great value. Its an excellent all-rounder scotch.

I actually like the Metro a lot, but it's a lot less convenient for shopping than driving around when you live relatively far out like I do.

If Montgomery County didn't only have these filthy county run liquor stores, I wouldn't have this problem. Highland Part 12 is on sale this month though...might have to give that a try. The Corryvreckan is on sale too but $59 vs $37 for the HP12.

$59 for the Corryvreckan is an outstanding price--I'd buy two at that price. $37 for the HP 12 is decent too.

You guys are going to get me in trouble for buying (and probably drinking) too much booze happy.gif

I have like 10 opened bottles in my cabinet. And at least another 24 unopened in the closet. I'm not a heavy drinker, so this stash would last me a very VERY long time. But when I see something I don't have and like (especially at a good price), I can't help myself. Get both, and enjoy. It's gonna be a long, cold winter.

I, and I believe Bacon too, have so much more than that. Doesn't stop us though. haha

Another to add to your list is Springbank 10. Unbeatable for the money. Much better than HP 12 IMO.

That's another one to add to the list for the eventual DC liquor run, not available here.


At least they have an online inventory system now so I can check which things aren't available sarcasm.gif

I think I bought a new bottle of Abunadh last night online. I guess I will find out when it gets delivered. I think I saw some sort of Ardbeg white dog too, did they make that?

The newer batches of AA have been very nice.

I haven't seen any talk of an Ardbeg white dog. The newest release from them is Galileo which is supposedly pretty middling.
