Also, which are available at Heathrow's World of Whiskies?
But in answer the the question I would go for QC or the Longrow 14, or maybe the springbank - infact don't ask me!
Anyway, It seems it's on Terminals 1 & 3 according to these websites.

If they follow these forums at all, they may begin to question the efficacy of their advertising.
Laphroaig QC is spectacularly good, and Ardbeg Uigedail is an interesting expression of Ardbeg, as well as being rare & unusual.
After considerable deliberation, I voted for Longrow 14. It's a delicious drop, rich, full of peat, beautifully smooth and oily, and it's also a rare whisky.
Was a bit suprised that by the comment of Admiral on behalf of the Longrow, I never had the feeling this is hard to get, but then again its different here then it is in Australia or the US for example. Still quality like, i'd go for the Uigeadail.
Longrow certainly isn't available in Australia, so it is rare from that point of view, but I was thinking mainly of the fact that Longrow is produced for such a short period each year.
(Out of interest, does anyone know what length of time Longrow is produced for? A week? A fortnight? Anybody?)
The ratio is 70% Springbank, 20% Longrow and 10% Hazelburn. That would suggest that Hazelburn is made only once a year. The others twice a year.
Hazelburn malt is dried purely over hot air for 36 hours and triple distilled. Longrow is dried for 36 hours over peat fire and double distilled. Springbank is dried for 6 hours over peat and then for 30 hours using hot air. And it's 2½ times distilled (double and triple distilled spirit is mixed)
After they have reopened the Glengyle distillery, they also prepare the malt at Springbank for this. I don't know the details on the proces. They might have to do this in between making the above mentioned maltings.
