Whisky shop in Leiden/amsterdam

Postby corbuso » Wed Apr 19, 2006 8:38 am

I will be next week in Leiden and Amsterdam and would like to buy some bottles there. Do you know any good shops in these cities?
Thank you

If you have time to go to Haarlem (about 15 min by train from Amsterdam) I recommend Melgers Drankenhandel. They have a good selection of whiskies.

If you go by plane, and land on Schipol, I can recomend to have a look at the Whiskey-shop at the airport. I have seen far worse.

I have still regrets that I bought only three bottles last time I was there...

Johannes from maltmaniacs has mentioned

Ton Overmars, Hoofddorpplein, Amsterdam ( http://www.tonovermars.nl/whisky.html )

Menno Boorsma, Ferdinand Bolstraat, Amsterdam

favourably in his "liquid logs".

But have no personal experience, sorry.

Cheers

Thank you for the info. Tonovermars has effectively a large selection of whisky and I have been in touched with Cadenhead Amsterdam last winter.
I was just wondering if you know additional shops worth visiting.
I remembered of a whisky shop last year which had some old springbank ceramic decanter and some Macallan 15yo (old one) for sale. Do you know by any chance similar shops?
