Where in or around the West Village can I find....

Talisker 18-year old Scotch by the bottle and raw beef marrow bones? (They don't need to be from the same place. :)

I plan to give Florence Meat Market a call tomorrow to ask about the latter, but this is the starting point for research. Any tried and true sources or good leads?

I'm worried the Talisker could be difficult to find, so if you know of a source NOT in the WV area, please let me know.

Thanks in advance!

  1. I'd call Astor Wines or Park Ave Liquors about the Talisker, especially if you're set on the 18yr. Astor's site doesn't show that they have it, but they don't always put everything on their shelves online. Park Ave's site says they have it but no idea how accurate that is--it may be out of stock.

    For beef marrow bones, I've seen them for sale at Dickson's at Chelsea Market, but not always.

      High five, Kathryn. Great leads.

      I didn't have much time when I was at Astor recently, so maybe I missed it, but I didn't see the Talisker there. I'll call to make sure, though.

    2. For anyone else who's wondering... Warehouse Wine and Spirits has bottles of Talisker 10 and 25 year, and a three 200ml-bottle box of 10, NV and 18 (for a great price, incidentally). I couldn't get through to anyone at Astor to ask whether they have Talisker 18, but when I eventually make it there, I'll look and try to report back.

      Florence Meat Market carries beef marrow bones all the time, they say. And Dickson's does often have them, as well.
