The magical world of Whiskey and Scotch
There is a land on an island, somewhere on the other side of the Atlantic pond, inhabited by gold-hoarding leprechauns and blond long-haired ferries. It is a land of grass and rock, castles and rain.
Yes, you guessed right, it is the mythical land of Scotland. I haven never been there, so I am not sure it really exists. Have you ever visited it? If you haven't, how can you be sure it exists?
But I have tried the magical elixir coming out of Scotland: scotch. I won't say I am a "connoisseur" because I am too poor to be one. But I am slowly entering the sub-culture of whiskeys and scotch.
It's been a long road for me, someone who comes originally from Easter-Europe. In our magical lands, hard liquors are almost exclusively "clear alcohols", like the legendary vodka or the thousands of variants and flavors of home-made brandy.
Making the switch to "dark alcohols" is a learning curve for me. If you're like me, and your starting to discover the magical leprechaun populated world of whiskeys, then I can suggest a few places in Montreal where you can meet these fantastical creatures (and reduce the amount of 20$ bills in your wallet).
L'Ile Noire (1649 St-Denis)
Whisky Café (5800 St-Laurent)
Stogies Cigar Lounge (2015 Crescent)
Obviously, there are many other bars and clubs in Montreal where you can enjoy some quality whiskey time. This is where we're going to end it, and let you do the discovering from there on.
