    The substantial selection of whiskies made me curious, so I decided to visit The Jefferson during a recent stay in Auckland. Hidden at the end of an underground passage, music was booming loudly when I entered the location. A huge selection of more than 500 whiskies was available at the bar, but unfortunately, they didn’t have a menu to browse through all the bottles. The bartender claimed to have it all in his head, but he struggled to find the bottles I was looking for. I had to show him where to find them, while he was convinced they were out of stock.

    Yes, there were some very nice malts available, but all shockingly expensive! I ordered a Springbank 11yo Local Barley which the bartender served in an awkward tumbler-like glass. It was altogether impossible to nose from this glass. Rather disappointing for a bar with this selection!

    Sitting there was not overly cosy and the music kept annoying me, so I left The Jefferson after roughly 20 minutes without to consider ordering a second dram. I was more or less disappointed and suggest you do not waste your time with this bar.
