Emeril Lagasse's Delmonico Steakhouse has always been known for its massive book of nearly 600 whiskeys, and now the newest edition of the legendary Book of Whiskey was released with new varieties from eight countries with 18 flight options.
Beverage manager Max Solano curates the list that includes the entire collection of Pappy van Winkle, Macallan 40-year vintage 1970 and Johnnie Walker Odyssey with new additions Jack Daniels Sinatra Select, Glenfiddich Age of Discovery and Four Roses 125th Anniversary 2013 Limited Edition Small Batch. The menu also features Lagasse's first private selection barrel of Eagle Rare 10-year.
