Here is a little info about a few of the scotches....

Old Pulteney 17 Year Old Single Malt Scotch...$105.99
Our 17-year-old predominantly features ex-bourbon maturation, with the addition of spirit that has been wholly matured in Spanish wood ex-sherry casks, predominantly Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso. This adds a subtle depth and complexity to the whisky, making for an outstanding after-dinner drink.
Old Pulteney 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch....$159.99
As with the 17 Years Old, with this expression we marry together Old Pulteney matured in ex-bourbon casks with spirit from ex-Oloroso sherry casks. We mostly use second fill American oak, plus some Spanish oak first fill. However, there is a higher proportion of ex-Oloroso sherry cask compared to the 17 Years Old.
Old Pulteney 21 Year Old has been voted 2012 World Whisky of the Year by the prestigious "Jim Murray's Whisky Bible." Scoring a record-equalling 97.5 points out of 100, it is only the third time that a single malt has ever won the prestigious award, and we are just the second Scottish distillery to do so.

Royal Brackla 12 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky...$44.99
Royal Brackla 12 Years Old, 40% ABV
Salute a superior Scotch: almonds, vine fruits, opulent spices; steeped in sherried richness. Ennobled nectar, fit for a king.

Royal Brackla 16 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky...$99.99
Royal Brackla 16 Years Old, 40% ABV
A royal flush of flavour: vanilla, soft caramel, ripe apricots; replete with sherry tones. Hold court with a monarch of the glens.

Is there anyway you can get a tasting ( beer, spirits, wine) on a Friday night or Saturday? Or do Wednesday more practical for people? I figured it is to have events durning the week when people normally may not come to the store. Just curious. I love all the free and paid tasting you put together.

We mostly do free ones on Friday and Saturdays. We do a free beer tasting every Friday from 4-6 and usually have a spirit or two open also.
Saturdays from 11-3 we do free wine tastings every week along with a spirit or two.
We usually do the more formal ones during the week with the thinking that people already have busy weekends with dinner plans on Fridays and Saturdays. For spirit tastings most of the time many do not bring their significant other and have trouble coming to events on the weekend for that reason.
When we do our giant open house events we usually do them on the weekend though.
