Just got back (to the USA) from the UK and was surprised at the whisky prices in the UK. Mostly we were up in the North Yorkshire Dales where stores are small and scattered. None the less, we were buying Laphroig 70 cl bottles for about 19 pounds (about 34 bucks) at local food stores.
That's way cheaper than we usually pay here in NC.
Better, it was a bit cheaper than at the "duty-free"
shops at Gatwick.
P.S. Wot's the deal with the "duty-free" shops? You
pay the same price in them as you pay in the "taxable"
shops in the same airport. I know we used to get a
break on prices. Wot gives?
