Any whiskey tips for going through duty free?

I'm off on holiday and seeing a mate that loves single malt whiskey, I don't have a clue about what a good bottle would be  ???

Those duty free shops in airports tend to have major brands, and not any cool niche type stuff, if I recall.

But I don't think you can go wrong with the Glenfidditch or Glenlivit more expensive stuff, maybe you can find something like  Bunnahabhain Darach Ur.......if you see Johnny Walker Blue for 150, that's good, but not single malt.

If I may suggest.If you see a bottle of Blantons Gold bourbon then grab it.it should be around $60-70.
suppose to be fantastic tasting stuff.unfortunately it's not sold here in the states :'(

Haven't tried it.

From a vodka standpoint, since Tito's debuted, is really good, and only 27 bucks for a 1.75, I haven't really been motivated to try anything else.

I'll take a look for it next time though.

Vodka is one I haven't developed a taste for in the same manner as bourbon.

Still haven't found one that is smoother than Goose, especially if it's drank on the rocks with a splash and an olive or something.

But then again, my range is limited.   I don't see your brand anywhere, though.
