Whisky bar: Museo del Whisky

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * Bars

Museo del Whisky - San Sebastian Museo del Whisky is a bar in the North of Spain with one of the largest collections of whisky (3400 bottles). The bottles above the bar are top pieces worth a lot of money.

Location: Boulevard 5 – 20003 San Sebastián (Spain)
Range: +/- 100 single malts (menu available with descriptions)
Price: € 8 to € 100

What I’ve had: Tomatin 12
Price: € 12 (+/- 5cl)
Glass: tumbler (the glass came filled, no chance to ask for a different one)
Extra: ice and spring water offered separately, different nuts and a free tapa

Pros: very nice decor, nice staff, large range
Cons: menu mentions many (interesting) things that are not available, no adequate glass
