The Scotch Bible

There is not a better selection of single malt Scotch Whisky or Irish Whisky anywhere in Minnesota than we have at Merlins Rest Pub.  We’ve looked around and we are quite sure. In fact, we competitively have the largest selection in the Midwest, with 310 different expressions of single malt Scotch and 99 expressions of Irish Whiskey. 

Single Malt Scotch and Irish Whiskey BibleThey’ve all been summarized and cataloged in our famed Whisk(e)y Bibles of great legends and songs.  There is nothing quite like it to be found anywhere else!

This tremendous fountain of information is carefully organized to provide the maximum sipping pleasure for the Whisky connoisseur and novice alike.  It’s the centerpiece of our Single Malt Scotch Whisky tasting experience the first Thursday of every month, which the true aficionado should simply never miss.

Our complete list of our Single Malt Scotch and Irish Whisky as well as Irish Blended Whiskey is too comprehensive to list online, and is subject to change when we (sadly) run dry on some of the more exotic additions, but we have listed below several  joyous selections from each region to tempt your taste buds!

The Whisky Bible – Stop in and ask for it at Merlins Rest and be prepared to be enlightened and delighted! We just released the 15th edition in November 2016!
