" world of whisky"

Postby JimHall » Mon Feb 28, 2005 12:02 pm

I have found that the "world of whisky" at both Heathrow airport and Stansted Airport are actually quite expensive. I think that most people believe that they are getting good duty free prices. But that is not the case I fear.
The shops have a great selection and are well laid out.
They do not produce a price list which I think shows their unwillingness for customers to compare prices.
Has anyone found the same problem ?

They're good on deals for things like Macallan CS. Apart from that I have found them to be fairly reasonable as compared to other specialist shops.

I would shop Heathrow's WOW only for these two reasons:

1. To find something unusual, not readily available elsewhere.

2. To fill out my allotment on the trip home.

Since I generally have far too many bottles already from Loch Fyne, G&M, and the Whisky Shop, #2 never applies. But it's fun to look. And I always try to shop on arrival, just in case there's something I feel I must make room for on departure.
