LAWS Vegas - Single Malts on the Las Vegas Strip!

This past weekend, the LA Whiskey Society traveled to Nevada for "LAWS Vegas." We stocked a spectacular penthouse suite with 100 whiskies ranging from old favorites to new gems. Suffice it to say that the weekend exceeded expectations... and that's before you include all the whisky! The most popular bottles were non-coincidentally the most legendary: Sprinbank 21 and Talisker 1981, along with LAWS's favorite, Glen Elgin 1985. We also enjoyed the much-anticipated GlenDronach 15 "Revival" as well as a powerful Laphroaig bottled exclusively for PLOWED.

The highlight of the weekend was a paired whisky dinner at the renowned and respected Las Vegas steakhouse, Craftsteak. Not only does this Tom Collicchio restaurant serve the best steaks in Las Vegas -- along with impeccable service -- they've got the biggest whisky selection as well. Currently at about 200 bottles and rising, the collection includes many true rarities as well as a lot of more-affordable, unexpected bottlings (including many independents).  So, LAWS worked with the folks at Craftsteak to create a decadent meal paired with twelve different whiskies (yes, twelve).
