Good place to buy scotch in DC?
Where in the DC area can one find a good place to buy scotch? I am in Virginia and the selection at the ABC stores is decent but boring. I'd like to try one from some place unique.
I've heard that there are some good one's from Japan? And "Amrut" from India is supposed to be very good as well. Anyone know where I can get either?
Ace Beverage (http://acebevdc.com/) on New Mexico Avenue near American has a great selection, and a really knowledgeable staff. You can call ahead to see what they have in, and they can even do special orders sometimes.
But I'd argue that while some of the other countries produce some "interesting" drinks, the best whisky is still made only in Scotland.
