A chum offered me a bottle of Bowmore 18yo he got at an airport - travel retail only. £85. It got me thinking perhaps a tasting showcasing such bottles would give drinkers a chance to judge if quality, character and price were of merit (or otherwise). This might be good for folks that don't do much travel and seldom taste the whiskies that are often reported in the media.
Could I ask Whisky Magazine posters to mention any current bottlings that are only available through travel retail shops.
Ideally some of you might be visiting Edinburgh and could source some bottles for me.....
