Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch 7

Postby chanson78 » Fri Jan 11, 2013 9:30 pm

I saw this link earlier about the coming release. Has anyone heard anything else?

When Balvenie releases these "Travel Retail" bottles does anyone have a magic way of getting their hands on them other than to purchase an international ticket?

Does anyone ever pick up some of these that do international travel frequently for resale?

Thanks

I have only heard it is coming. One way is to talk to your friends and relatives that are travelling. Give them a bribe to pick one up for you. :thumbsup:

Found out some more information on the Batch 7.

http://dutyfreemagazine.ca/asia/brand-news/liquor/2013/01/25/william-grant-and-sons-releases-the-balvenie-tun-1401-batch-7-exclusively-in-travel-retail/

Hand-bottled at The Balvenie Distillery in Speyside, The Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch 7 has an ABV of 49.2% and will be available worldwide, from March 2013, exclusively through travel retail outlets at an RRP of £175 (US$276).


Does anyone have any information regarding what airports or duty free ports might be more likely to carry these bottles? I would hate to bug a friend who is going international, and the duty free store not have any.
