Went to Park Avenue Liquors


Yahoo! I was in NYC earlier in the week and had achance to go to Park Avenue Liqours. I have to thank everyone here who recommended it.
This place was great. Here in Florida there is no place like it. Park Ave was loaded with all kinds of stuff-I felt like I had died and gone to malt heaven.
I picked up a 12 year old Rosebank and a 19 year old cask strength Port Ellen. Man, that was fun.

I've never been to Park Ave Liquors so I have no idea how good it is. However, I do live in FL and up until recently I would have said that there are few if any liquor stores that have even a reasonable selection of SMS. That is, until recently. I live in the Ft Myers area (southwest FL) and finally a liquor store open recently that has a good (albeit, not great) selection of SMS and a great selection of Wine as well. Also the owners also seem very interested in doing all they can to accommodate. I was looking or Ardbeg Uigeadail and asked about it. The owners took all appropriate information and in two days called me to say it would be there in 2 days if I wanted it. I've tried having someone order it for mew many times before with other liquor stores in the area and have never received a call back. In this case I picked it up two days later as promised. On top of that they have a very good selection of SMS on their shelves. The name of the store is Liquor Store at Fiddlesticks, 13650 Fiddlesticks Blvd, Ft Myers, FL. If you're in the area, give it a try. I think you'll like what you see.

The only place I've ever found a better whisky store was on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh..

Treasure the bottle, and make it last, it won't be around for ever. I rate it joint third with Laphroaig behind Lagavulin (which I love for its superb dryness) and Ardbeg in Islay malts.
The distillery was owned by the people who make Lagavulin and Caol Ila. I too have a bottle of 19yo Port Ellen, distilled in 1982 under the McGibbon Provenance label. It was matured in a full Sherry wood cask. It is a treat yet to come after I finished off my old Gordon & MacPhail 40% Port Ellen from the 70's.

There have been a couple official Port Ellen releases in recent years (I've seen three so far but a fourth is due). They're not cheap at 100 Pounds a bottle but if your budget will handle that I recommend the series 2, it seemed to have a more rounded body, holding the peat smoke longer and not souring at all.
