Store with good single malt selection?

Looking for single malt for a father's day gift. My dad "hinted" that he likes one called Cardhu, and a little research has shown that this is hard to find.

Any suggestions on stores in the area (preferably Somerville/Cambridge, but I'm willing to take a little trip) that have good single malt selections?

Thanks so much!!!

  1. I believe Charles Street Liquors has a good selection (they claim 130) - not super-far. - they don't list Cardhu but I'd give them a call.

    1. I know for a fact that Atlas Liquors in Medford on Mystic Avenue has a great single malt collection and I believe I've seen Cardhu there.

      1. Fresh Pond Liquors next to whole foods, very large selection
        Any Marty's location
        Any Blanchards location
        The Nonantum road Martignetti's location has very competitive prices lately.

        1. Not in Cambridge/Somerville but the Wine Gallery on Route 9 in Brookline has an amazing selection.

          1. The Gordon's location on Main Street (not Moody) in Waltham has a very good selection of whisk(e)ys, including single malts.
