A good friend who is an admirer of Scots whisky will be in town this weekend, and we're looking for a bar with a good selection. Since I'm usually a wine drinker when out, I'm not up on this subject.
We're looking for suggestions close to the Red Line (as in ~5 minute walk) ONLY between Bethesda and downtown DC. Specific thoughts of places I like but don't know the whisky selection are: Palena, Dino, Tabard Inn. But I'd be grateful for any other thoughts. As those names suggest, someplace comfortable and not loud/crazy preferred.
(PS The Royal Mile Pub sounds fabulous; but we can't go to Wheaton.)
