EDIT: it was the Elephant & Castle.
Only 25 scotches! I've been at bars where I wished that they even had half that number. Of course, how many were blends, Glenlivit, Glenfiddich, and the usual that are found around that area?

have you researched the Rowes Wharf Bar? Only 40 including blends however further research may reveal more bars.
From the website:
Yet, within these wood-detailed walls lays Boston's most extensive selection of fine scotches.
In Scotland, whiskey remains the drink of choice. Be it a celebration or merely a sedentary moment of meditation, whiskey has an almost ubiquitous quality, making it an appropriate drink for all occasions.
Mr. Picky bristles: "lays" instead of "lies"; "whiskey" instead of "whisky"; and an inappropriate and meaningless use of "ubiquitous". The clause "Be it....meditation" has no proper reference; "it" appears to be "whiskey", which is not itself a celebration or a moment. And what the hell does "wood-detailed" mean? These clowns don't know crap.
And if they are indeed correct that their array of 40 blends and malts is the best in Boston, then Brian is SOL. (And I, also.) Alas, Boston is the land of the faux Irish pub; oh, a real Irish barback, and even real Irish staff, to be sure, but a barful of Budchuggers. If you're lucky, a good pint of Guinness and a Bushmills, but forget about a decent dram of malt. If I may steal a page from Admiral, I suggest you drive through the Ted Williams Tunnel to Logan Airport and catch Icelandair to Glasgow.

Rowes Wharf Bar is the first thing I picked off from the Google search result... should I spend more time on a more thorough Google search? Maybe a complete listing of Boston bars specializing in single malts? That might take an hour.
This was meant to be an example of what can be found on Google... not the ultimate choice for a Boston single malt bar
I shouldn't complain--I have it far better, whisky-wise and else, than folks do in a lot of other places. I guess I'm just bemused by the fact that there's no place so provincial as a city that thinks it's the cat's pajamas. Boston can be like that. I love it like I love a brother, but you know when your brother is full of $#!%, don't you?
ummm, maybe I've had to much Uigeadail
Of course, the other reason I didn't post is that there's only been one pub I found that I could really become attached to in my newly adopted home- and that @#$^#* place closed down three weeks after I moved here!
