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 105 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! 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!

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 is subject to change when we (sadly) run dry on some of the more exotic additions. If you are coming to Merlins Rest for a specific expression, please call ahead to ensure that we currently have it in stock. (612)216-2419.
