Duke of Perth

Happening upon the stellar single-malt whiskey collection at the Duke of Perth, you’ll find everything as it should be in a Scottish pub: Viewed through a smoky lens, there’s a tight little bar area, a small dining room and an open-air patio out back. Everywhere there are antique Scottish details imported from Perth (co-owner Colin Cameron hails from Broughty Ferry, a town 20 miles away from Perth). But what really catches the eye is the selection of around 80 single malts, including hard-to-find goodies like the Aberlour a’bunadh, a cask-strength selection registering 120-proof (most single malts hover around 80), with a profoundly long finish.
