Whisky bar: Hesperia Madrid

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * Bars

Hesperia Scotch BarThe Hesperia Madrid is one of the best known high quality 5* hotels in Madrid. Their Scotch Bar is quite a cosy place, though a little old-fashioned.

Location: Paseo de la Castellana 57 – 28046 Madrid (Spain)
Range: +/- 50 single malts (menu available without descriptions, but lots of whiskies are mentioned in the wrong region, and lots of spelling mistakes)
Price: € 12,50 to € 42

What I’ve had: Glengoyne 17
Price: € 15 (+/- 6cl)
Glass: tumbler (eventually changed for a cognac glass)
Extra: poured at the table, ice offered separately, different nuts

Pros: generous portions, professional staff, excellent cocktails as well
Cons: no clients on a Saturday evening, expensive, menu full of mistakes
