    No idea. Where exactly are you going to be in Scotland? Balblair near Tain does a distillery hand fill that is usually very high quality. Edrarour in Pitlochry also does good stuff and is the brand hub for Signatory Vintage which are a good value indie bottler who have tons of interesting single cask picks. Either way as long as you don't go to fricking Macallan or Glenfiddich you'll probably be fine, especially if you buy an indie bottling from a respected bottler.

      I was gonna start in one of the two big cities, go up north possibly even to Dunnet Head/Thurso for sightseeing, hiking, photos, all that. on my way back down I was thinking of going through Inverness, Aberdeen, Dundee, etc which is the area I planned to get a bottle from.
      I'm not a hipster or too big of a whiskyhead but a smaller distillery sounds a bit cooler and just feels more authentic lol. That Tain place you mentioned looks interesting
      Whats wrong with Macallan or Glenfiddich? just so I know what to avoid

        You kind of answered your own question.

        >a smaller distillery sounds a bit cooler and just feels more authentic lol.
        You're obviously not going to get this experience from Macallan or Glenfiddich, given that they are big major distilleries. I like their whisky, but I'm sure you can easily find them anywhere in the world.

          ha that is what I was basically thinking of, I wanted some good stuff you could only find in Scotland

          I went to some distilleries last year, here's what I remember:
          > Oban
          OK tour, their wiskies are mid-tier imo.
          > Talisker
          Super commercial. Only did the tasting session, their whole range is pretty solid. My fav is the Port Ruighe.
          > Dalwhinnie
          Good tour. Did a nice tasting with chocolate/whisky pairings. My personal fav is the winter's gold.
          > Tomatin
          Only went inside for the bar. The waitress was awesome and kept offering free drinks. Tomatin 18 is top tier.
          > Blair Athol
          Nice little distillery. Their range is very limited, the 12 y.o. with sherry finish was okay.

          Forgot to add: you can legally take 1 litre of whisky back to Germany if I remember correctly. This does not include the tax free shops in the airport, there you can buy as much as you want.

          I forgot tours were a thing, I just wanted a bottle but now I'll tour a place too, also thanks for the info on the 1 litre bottle
          are those all highlands distilleries?

            Doesn't exist, mate. Scots drink Famous Grouse, which is just a blend. Single Malts are overwhelming for export.

              Some of us drink single malts. Grouse is for auld fellas with wee dogs

              Got a bottle of Arran on the go, pretty good

            All are highland distilleries, except for Talisker which is an island distillerie. Also try to go for two 0.5 litre bottles instead of a single 1 litre, so you don't have to settle down for only 1 whisky. The airport on the other hand has interesting whiskies as well, such as travel retail exclusives.

    What kind of whisky do you enjoy? Turfed, more floral notes?... I love Lagavulin. But it's probably not hard to find in Germany. And I do prefer stronger malts from Islay.

    There'll be some on sale in the Duty Free so bringing it back wouldn't be that hard.
