Scotch Library at Westin Kierland Resort and Spa
Representing more than half of the operating distilleries in Scotland today, the impressive collection features more than 175 single malts, 30 blends, and a number of “rare” bottles imported from all six whisky regions of Scotland (Speyside, Highland, Islay, Islands, Lowland and Campbeltown).
Assisting guests with selections are Scotch Library Ambassadors, who are experts in the area of single malt and blend whiskies from Scotland. Served in two-ounce pours, the offerings are priced from $10 per serving to $475 per serving. On Friday evenings at 6:00 p.m., the Resort hosts “An Evening of Scotches,” a tasting event featuring three selections of Scotch Whisky, tasting is priced at $55+ per person.
The scotch ambassador, Guy, was very welcoming, informative, and friendly. I went there two evenings and enjoyed his drink recommendations. It was a great experience, and I would definitely go back.
The bartender who served us was the most whisky knowledgeable individual i’ve Ever met. Highly recommend for scotch lovers!
Unfortunately when we arrived 2 minutes after the reservation time things were well underway so we did something else and also cancelled our dining reservation at the property and walked across the street. Ive Often brought customer and friend and would highly recommend this experience if you can get it go work for you as it's very interesting and rewarding. For our group however it didn't work out. I think I may keep it to non customer type interactions in the future however because it's not a situation where I can afford the risk of missing out.
