    I was here in 2015. Loud music as hell. Expensive as hell. But decent selection.

    Not cheap but priceless!


    1. You do not travel to Iceland to buy cheap liquor.

         Brennivín  tastes cheap but it is still rather  

         expensive. 

    2. Neither you visit Iceland to spend an arm and a leg to  have a glas of decent malt.


    3. Besides all the beauties of the Icelandic nature, the hearty food (lamb, foal, puffin, whale, Hákarl = fermented shark, Súrir hrútspungar  = sour ram's Testicles,   Svið  = sheep's head, Kútmagar = Fish stomach,  Slátur = Blood Pudding)…) and the friendliness of the Icelanders, …


    ... it is just great to have a whisk(e)ybar in Iceland. 

    Sometimes you do not care for the money and just want to have a good malt with friends.

    Living in Norway, I am more or less used to ridiculous alcohol prices. However, the situation on Iceland is completely insane: an ordinary dram of Single Malt costs about 2,000 ISK (17 EUR)! Yes, I really wanted to visit an Icelandic whisky bar, but I somehow changed my mind when I saw the prices on the blackboard of Dillon Whiskey Bar.

    It's certainly not a bad location: the atmosphere was relaxed and the staff professional. Their selection of malts appeared decent at first glance and they also offered a range of Flóki malts from Eimverk distillery. However, I didn't want to spend a little fortune on an average dram, so I decided to leave Dillon's after a few minutes to rather have a burger in the restaurant below.
