I am a happy, happy man! The liquor stores I have been frequenting in Tucson have a limited whisky selection and what they have is a bit overpriced. The Beverage House on Broadway has maybe 25 Scotch single malt expressions and just a handful of Irish whiskies–just the common labels. I suppose I could stay busy enough with this selection, but I like to wander and experiment with the smaller labels. So last Friday, on the way home from the boys’ football game, I saw the Total Wine & More store and thought, “It’s big enough. I wonder what “More” means?” So I popped in and immediately fell in love. In addition to a wonderfully helpful staff, they stock at least 50 Scotch single malts (probably more), about 20 Irish expressions, and more American whiskies than I’ve ever seen. I didn’t have time to explore, but the Glenmorangie 10 Year Old was $10 cheaper than I can get it on base.
This store is definitely a keeper. Check them out on the web. With locations in Tucson (Oracle and Wetmore) and throughout the Phoenix area, it is definitely worth checking out for you Arizona wine and spirit lovers!
