Not really a question. More of a moan.
I can't get "Cardhu Single Malt 12 year old" anywhere near me. It's not in any of the supermarkets, off-licences, etc. It is available 50 miles way in London, but for £30 a bottle.
Last week, I went to a smallish town in North Crete. Cardhu was in pretty much every supermarket, at around £16-£17 a bottle.
Now, I know that our duty rate here in England is £5.68 per bottle. But, offset against that, transport from Scotland to England must be much less than to a Greek Island!
So, why do they get all this malt and we get none?
