My husband loves single malt, particularly the Islay ones. He is working in town in the Embassy Row area. Can anyone recommend a liquor store with a particular good scotch selection? I am sure DH would be more than willing to cab anywhere but closer to his area would be preferred.

Thanks everyone.

        I think that BY FAR the best selection of single malts is at Wine Specialist on M Street.

        For example, when I wanted to get my husband a bottle of Ardbeg Supernova for his birthday last August, they were the only store in the tri-state area that had received any bottles from the distributor.

          That would be interesting. My sister-in-law found a bottle of Supernova for DH for Christmas. He was so happy about that.

          Thanks to everyone else for your suggestions. I'll get DH to go check them out.
