Delmonico whiskey list is an absolute killer

By itself, Emeril Lagasse’s Delmonico Steakhouse in the Venetian is a tremendous experience, but add in the restaurant’s whiskey collection and you have a never-ending list of reasons to go there again and again.

The steakhouse recently released its sixth edition Book of Whisky, which features nearly—wait for it—600 different whiskeys from eight countries, including Ireland, Scotland, Canada, Japan and the United States. If you’re in any way a whiskey geek, you should be drooling right about now.

The usual suspects are all there, sure—Ardbeg from Scotland, Jameson from Ireland and Evan Williams from America—but it’s the harder-to-find whiskeys that really make this list pop. For instance, the nearly impossible to find Pappy Van Winkle collection is available. Even better, for the amazing price of $200, you can do a flight of the 15-, 20- and 23-year-old bourbons. Try finding that value anywhere else in town!

In addition, Delmonico features the ultra-rare Jack Daniels Sinatra Select, which will soon become unavailable anywhere, according to Brown-Forman master distiller Chris Morris, for the reasonable price of $45 a shot.

If you’re not averse to shelling out major cash for a pour, Delmonico also has 40-year-old Macallan for $240, Johnnie Walker Blue Label, King George V, Limited Edition for $160, and Johnnie Walker Odyssey for $250.

If you’re interested in experiencing this list for yourself, get a reservation by calling 414-3737 or going online. To view the book, click here. Delmonico’s hours are 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5 p.m.-10 p.m. daily, except Fridays and Saturdays, when hours are 5 p.m.-10:30 p.m.
