I bought the Nadurra myself but I know Aberlour 15 Sherry wood is also popular at the taxfree shops (1 litre) - and it's very good.

Hi Ash,

in Hamburg you´ll find Ardbeg 10, Laphi 10, Glenlivet 12, Balvenie 15 Single Cask and serveral Distillers Editions, may some more, to affordable prices, so drop in and have a look. I sometimes take a Laga DE, should be about 63 €/litre. Glenlivet Nadurra ?? May be, I don´t know.
Have a nice trip ;-)

I'm assuming the cask-strength Nadurra is still unavailable in the UK--of course that is what you'll be looking for in the duty-free shops. Must disagree with richard, it's splendid stuff.

If you are on the Hamburg side, it may be that you can purchase at the duty free coming in and on the way out as well (just in case you want to deliver some whisky to the guests you are visiting!)...its that way in several of the larger German airports anyway.

To be prepared for whats at the shop, just go to this site:

http://www.duty-free.de/TV/HAM

Choose "Spiritousen" and from there, choose your poison. A current favorite of mine is the Balvenie Founders Reserve @ €30.50 for 1 Liter...cant beat that with a stick

Dunno how the Manchester airport is but I have been fairly disappointed by the Hamburg duty-free. Normal run-of-the-mill stuff.
