SEA area scotch (or sake) flights?

Anyone have any reco's for a SEA area scotch or sake flight? I've always found flights of wine to be the best way to try a range of wines, but I only rarely see the similar for scotch or sake. I know there's got to be something around here (outside of the Scotch festival a few months back)....

  1. Sake Nomi in Pioneer square (retail and sake bar) does flights

    1. If I remember right, The Brooklyn Seafood, Steak & Oyster House downtown does a sampler of scotches, accompanied by several different varieties of raw oysters.

      1. The Bookstore Bar (enter through the Alexis Hotel on 1st and Madison) always has flights of single malts. The food's undistinguished, but it's a fine place for whisky.

          They have quite a selection of single malts at Brouwer's in Fremont but they do not advertise flights, at least they didn't last time I had a scotch there which was >6 months ago.

          I am curious, when trying flights of scotch what size portion do you get of each? Is just ordering several choices neat much more to drink?

            If the "flight" is like the one with tequila at the Brooklyn, they serve and price it as one item.. Seems like there's 1/2 shot of 4 different liquors in the flight.

        2. I miss Hopscotch (where "Smith's" is currently situated)! A group of friends would meet there, and given our favorite bartender, we'd have several shots selected for sampling amongst us. That's where we were introduced to the Glenrothes.....

          I've seen the sampler at Library, wasn't real taken by the selected malts in the sampler, but for the newbie, or those who enjoy the particular selected malts, it would be a good way to go.
