One night in San Jose

Alexander's Steakhouse in Cupertino is another great restaurant with a Michelin star (Manresa has two).

Good places to buy whiskey in San Jose?

I'm having a hard time finding a store in San Jose (and neighboring vicinities) with a good selection of scotch/whisky. Would also like to help others who are trying to find scotches like Ardbeg, Bowmore and Highland Park at reasonable prices.

The Wine Rack was one place that had what I wanted, but the price they quoted for a bottle of Ardbeg was nowhere near the prices on K & L and Beltramo's websites (trying to avoid a trip up the peninsula).

Saratoga Bottle Shop's price was equally high.

Coach House Wine & Spirits in Cupertino was the closest winner, but still $15 more than Beltramo's.

Also tried Maplewood Market & Liquors but they didn't have what I was looking for.

There have to be other whisky enthusiast-hounds in San Jose who can't get their fix from Costco and Bevmo! Can anyone recommend a good store with competitive prices?
