NOT RECOMMENDED!!! Overall, this store has the highest prices I've seen anyplace. There were a few interesting high-end bottles, but you can get them all online for $100 cheaper. And the $325 price on A.H. Hirsh 16 Year is just robbery. I've heard that the distributor is charging a lot for this latest release, but on top of that they've marked it up more than anyone else. And again, go online and save yourself $225.
I'll add that one of the main guys there is a complete dick. On the few times I've stopped in to browse, he's always gruff and irritable. Finally, on one visit I want to buy something -- a bottle that I know generally retails for about $600. Here's what happens:
I say, "Oooh, what's the price for that Ardbeg Provenance?" It was in their glass case, so you couldn't see.
Mr. Grumpy looks me up-and-down, and says, "Seven-hundred."
So I ask to see it -- and what do you know? The price tag on it reads $650.00
Apparently, I qualified for the I Do Not Like You Price Increase.
Or perhaps it was some sort of other discrimination I haven't heard of. Either way, these guys go in the "YOU SUCK" category along with Almor Wine & Spirits for acting like unprofessional jerks.
