Scotch - where to buy

Hi all,

Outside of BevMo, Total Wine, and Sportsman's, are there any places in phoenix offering a large selection of scotch (preferably different selection than those above)?

There are quite a few places in the US that stock 300+ bottles (the places above are nowhere near that)...I'm just hoping to find some more unusual stuff.

  1. AZ Wine Co on scottsdale rd just south of thomas has a great Scotch collection. Ask for Robert.

          Ok, so I was pretty disappointed...AZ Wine Co on scottsdale/thomas had about 12 ft of space allocated for Scotch, but at least half of it was empty (no stickers, either). In terms of assortment, they had a handful of bottles that I don't recall seeing at the big box stores, but in exchange they didn't have anywhere near the selection that you find at those places. Looks like maybe at one time they had more, and have scaled it back.

          Any other ideas?

            Well, I know that the shelf-space is tight, so you won't find a huge selection, but it may be worth giving Sun Devil Liquors in Mesa a shot as they do tend to carry some lesser seen brands of various spirits. They aren't cheap, but at least they're local folks and it's always a fun browse (not to mention the very cool wine cellar/bar that also has some wonderful beers on tap).
