Bruichladdich Flirtation

Postby ppz » Wed Aug 31, 2005 4:45 pm

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know if Bruichladdich Flirtation is available in duty-free airport shops in Europe (primarily UK, Italy and Germany)?

Thanks in advance,

As far as I know - no! It was bottled

You could try LFW or

Thanks, I'll visit RMW.

Still, I wonder if that specialized Whisky shop in Heathrow stocks it... It looked independent enough. I'll check that out next time I'm there.

How is Infinity btw - has anyone tried it? I was considering it today at RMW (which, by the way, did not have Flirtation in stock), but at the end bought something else.

:oops:
Please accept my apologies, ppz - I should have read your post more attentively. Sorry about that. Haven't had an Infinity yet.

I enjoyed Infinity quite a lot. A nice and hot "sherry whisky" but not a monster at that - much more subtle!

Skål!

Flirtation and airport

Postby corbuso » Thu Sep 01, 2005 8:33 am

I haven't seen any flirtation in any airport this year, not even at the whisky world shops. Fliration is of limited release and mostly sold to whisky shops.

Also, a 20 cl flirtation is sold in exclusivity at http://www.whiskyshop.com

The flirtation is quite an atypical whisky, but a good one if you like (very) sweet whiskies. You can drink it as easily as a sirup!

Infinity was an awesome dram, defenitally one of the best Bruichladdies I ever had. Here's a few tasting notes.
