    My wife got this for me last year. It was great and they have several types of whiskeys, some are single malt. They bring you a list and you can pick 3. I thought they were just shots, but it is regular drinks. Needles to say after 3 drinks within 20 minutes I was feeling good.

    Have a great time.

    We did this reward when they did 4 drinks. I wish we would have taken a picture of the "menu" but I remember they had each broken down into categories and you could select any 4 you wanted. The bartender suggested to get 4 from the same type as they would pair better.

    Best I can do is show the pic of the 4 we all chose. :thumbsup:

    Shock. You are correct it was 4 drinks. I think I only wanted 3. It was about 8 months ago so it's hard to remember. Getting old, I guess.

    I have done it twice and will do it again this coming trip. Best reward these days. I've also had the same bartender each time, who is a great guy to hang out with.

    I know nothing about whiskey, but the bartender was very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions we had. Hopefully you get him or one that is as knowledgeable :thumbsup:

    I did this a couple years ago. ..i didn't think to take a photo, but at that time, all the options were ones that I'd tried in the past and were quite common (with the exception of the made-specially-for-monte-carlo one). The American flight was that monte carlo one, regular maker's, jack (possibly gentleman's jack ), and something else. If you think in terms of "what common bottle could i buy at the store for about the price of maker's? " you're on the right track. That being said, free whisky is free whisky! I very much enjoyed it. Threw the guy a 5 or 10 dollar tip and very much enjoyed the 30 minutes or so i spent relaxing at the bar.

    I know nothing about whiskey but let the bartender pick- I loved the Oban 14 and the Templteon Rye was my 2nd fav, I also had Bulliet Bourbon which I expected to like more than I did but it wasn't bad, and I had single barrel JD which was my least favorite of the group
