Though Scottish whiskeys are generally considered the best, their 200+ label collection includes some Japanese single malts and Welsh blends that might change your mind. Whiskey is available by the glass or bottle and orders ‘on the rocks’ come with ice balls which, the bartender will explain, melt slower than ice cubes. The bar’s decor has an elegant masculinity about it with hardwood floors and leather seating. A live jazz band provides the soundtrack most nights after 8p.
