I've only recently discovered Milroy's of Soho, despite it being the oldest whisky shop in London, and am rapidly making up for lost time, having visited this place twice over the span of 10 days. The shop itself is a must-visit for whisky connoisseurs (or even just someone who likes whisky) as it stocks ~250 whiskies from Scotland and around the world (including Japan, Taiwan and South...more
