For the first tasting (31.08.17):1 ticket left - but there will inevitably be cancellations if anyone wants to go on the 'reserve' list. PLEASE commit to attending if you said your going, pretty please.

There will be the newly released Old Perth 12yo 43.9% single cask of Highland Park and Macallan married at birth and sherry cask matured.

So only 1 dram to be finalised.

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.

So.

Could I ask Forum 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.....

Cheers
