World of Whiskies

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

World of Whiskies - HeathrowOn my way back from Southeast Asia, I passed through Heathrow’s new Terminal 5. Considering the amount of high-end shops there, I was eager to see the World of Whiskies branch as I expected something special.

Unfortunately, that was not the case. WOW in itself is still very interesting, but apart from a handful of exclusive bottlings, the range of single malts in Terminal 3 (regular Duty Free) seemed almost the same to me than the specific WOW in T5.

Anyway, if you’re interested in whisky and you’re flying, be sure to check out World of Whiskies

Among the current WOW exclusives are a Jura 30yo, a Glenfiddich 1973, a well-priced Caol Ila 25yo (Douglas Laing Platinum) and an Auchentoshan 1999. I decided to go for the Old Pulteney WK499 Isabella Fortuna (travel retail only). Review coming up shortly.

    OP Isabella Fortuna WK499 is a good choice – I emptied a bottle in a few weeks. Bought another one last week – Aberdeen has two bottles for 50 £ and you can mix with other brands

  • Dirk V.: I think Inge L. does a fantastic job with her whisky flavoured chocolates ;-)

  • SK: 2 years ago I tried the Caol Ila 1982 from Archives. What a fantastic whisky. Since then I always try to stock these Caol Ila from the 80s. Sadly no
