The great liquor stores? And agricole rum?

Thi N. | Jan 30, 2009 11:33 AM

Where are the great liquor stores of Los Angeles and surrounds? Good selections of oddball things, at good prices?

I currently favor Wine House, but I could use more options.

I'm currently a little obsessed with the New American Vodka wonderment (especially Charbay), reasonable brandies, and getting back to my roots: namely, bourbon.

(By my roots, I don't mean my ethnic, Vietnamese roots (I guess I'd have to drink expensive name-brand whiskey mixed with cobra blood and venom for that), but my drinking roots: namely, that glorious year after college where I had a little money and a taste for bourbon.)

So good places with oddball selection: hard to find small-batch stuff. Especially places that, like the Wine House, go for not just the super-expensive scotches and cognacs, but stock the neat-o bargains - like all the Californian and Oregonian brandies, and single-barrel bourbons.

Also: does anybody know a good place that sells Martinique agricole rum around here?
