“Best whisky bar in Scotland!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

Very large whisky selection and very knowledgable and friendly staff. After recommending a couple great single malts, bartender gave us a list of his recommendations for pubs in Glasgow and Edinburgh, which all turned out to be great places. If you're in Glasgow and like a good whisky, this place is a must!

“Scotch is the name of this pub....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

If your looking for a new Scotch to drink, you've come to the right place. In the central business district, this place has more whisky choices that any other in Glasgow. It's a tiny place, with a very knowledgable staff. As with all of Glasgow, the staff is a very friendly bunch. They'll go out of their way to help you with a selection of your tastes. They have small selection of food but the main attraction here is the whisky inventory. My wife particularly liked the barman in the kilt that went up the latter constantly to retrieve whisky selections for the patrons! Fun atmosphere, a most see while in Glasgow.

“Whisky galore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Drink whisky? Then you must go here. Fantastic traditional pub with a huge selection of Scotch Whisky's. The staff are all very passionate and knowledgeable when it comes to the Scottish national drink. I simply have never seen such an impressive collection and you will struggle to find a dram that is not behind that bar. They serve beer as well...apparently!

“Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

This place has the best selection of whisky I have ever seen. The staff ask you what style of whisky you like and then offer you a selection to try. You are not rushed, nothing is too much trouble. We also found the patron chatty and friendly. A really great atmosphere.
