I tried searching for this but didn't find what I wanted. I'm looking for PDX bars with the best whiskey selections. I found a place called Branch that does "flights" of whiskey, or three one ounce shots, you choose the whiskey. Sounds like a good way to go but I'm looking for recommendations.

Josh, welcome to the site.

I recently moved from Portland and never found a good bar with much selection, but was told of one that did. I can't recall the name right now but will check my past messages and get back to you.

I can't find the info I was looking for, but I across a place called Pope House Bourbon Lounge http://www.popehouselounge.com/index.html that has a pretty impressive list of bourbon so I'd try them.

I'm not real familiar with any of the downtown Portland bars, but if you're willing to drive a few miles south, to Tigard, there's John Barleycorn's (14610 S.W. Sequoia Pkwy). It's one of the McMenamins chain, but if you've visited more than one of those you know that there's a lot of variation between branches (i.e., it's not a "cookie cutter" deal like, say, Applebees).

I was there about a year ago and it had a better selection than I'd seen in most Oregon bars.

I just checked their list and here's their current lineup:

(ri) 1 RYE WHISKEY $10
1792 RidGEMONT RESERVE $6.50
BAKERíS $9.50
BASIL HAYDENíS $9.25
BLANTONS $9.25
BOOKERS $11.50
BUFFALO TRACE $6
BULLEIT $5.50
CORNER CREEK RESERVE $5.25
EAGLE RARE $6.50
ELIJAH CRAIG 12 $9.25
GENTLEMAN JACK $6.75
JACK DANIELíS SINGLE BARREL $9.25
JACK DANIELS $5.50
JEFFERSON RESERVE VERY OLD $10
JIM BEAM BLACK $5.50
JIM BEAM $4.75
KNOB CREEK $8
MAKERS MARK $6.50
SAZERAC RYE $7
VAN WINKLEíS FAMILY RESERVE 20 YR $16.75
OLD WELLER 107 $5.25
WILD TURKEY $5.50
WILD TURKEY KENTUCKY SPIRIT $10
WILD TURKEY RUSSELLS RESERVE $6.75
WILD TURKEY RUSSELLS RESERVE RYE $7
WOODFORD RESERVE $7.50

The $16.75 for a glass of PVW 20 is a lot, but there's a local (Corvallis) bar that charges $20.

At Makers Mark in KC.. The PVW20 is 19 for a flight and 39 a glass... The ads always bother me. This is a bar centered around bourbon, but the ads show people sitting around drinking wine...
