Re: Whisky

Online shopping: http://www.schubiweine.ch/wein_detai...lend-shop.html

Offline shopping:
Jelmoli Zurich: http://www.jelmoli.ch/gourmet/weine_spirituosen.asp or Globus Zurich: http://www.globus.ch/de/delicatessa/...kte/index.html should have in stock or at least be able to order them

I've not seen any Johnny Walker in supermarkets here but if you want to drink a decent whisky you can buy Glenmorangie 10 year old at Denner for CHF40 - good price that and it's a nice drop of stuff too

Re: Whisky

you will get the blue label in Jelmoli ..... bahnofstrasse. The basement of Jelmoli has quite a good collection of scotch.
Its costs 250 chf.

FWIW, Jelmoli is OK, but no better than Globus at Belle Vue. The Globus just off Bahnhofstrasse has a better selection. But the one at Glatt Zentrum is better still.

There is also an excellent whisky shop in Niederdorf called Glen Fahrn.

Horgen: http://www.eddies.ch/

There's also one in the Niederdorf, but the miserable sod didn't like the look of my Indian friend, and followed us round the shop the whole time, which I found somewhat offputting, so I'm not going to recommend it.

Would that have been Glen Fahrn?

Re: Whisky

I may be able to oblige - i have a couple of bottles fully sealed in their presentation boxes. Let me know if you are interested. I'm in Zurich and happy to take a 30% discount to local prices.

Could have been.... I'm not entirely sure... it's on the main drag, though, but I can't remember how far up it is, or which end, Oberdorf or Niederdorf.

Sorry!
