I'm looking for the best bars in the city to try a variety of whisk(e)ys- single malts, bourbons, ryes, etc. Any recommendations?

The largest bourbon selection is at Bourbon House. I think they've got 60 or more.

D.B.A. always has a good spirits. Clever, the wine bar at Cork and Bottle, also keeps an interesting selection of spirits, especially bourbon. The owner is a big bourbon fan.

I honestly can't think of a place with a large Scotch selection.

This needs to be remedied. Hint hint, somebody. Don't make me open a Scotch bar instead of going into law... Or, do.

D.B.A. and Delachaise have a decent variety of Scotch. I am not sure about CURE as I am always drinking cocktails (as opposed to straight alcohol) there.
