Hi. Wife will be returning to the states in a few days and offered to bring home a bottle or two. If I recall correctly last time there, the American brand whiskeys were priced really well, cheaper than in the states. I assume the same with Bourbon. Not sure about the Scotch options. So, looking for some guidance and/or suggestions of what to advise her. What's a good deal and better to buy from a liquor or department store or Duty Free. And for example, is it worth it buying a bottle of Johnnie Blue?
One advantage of Duty Free I suppose is that she can take it carry-on and not worry about security (not sure if they have the same 3oz carry on rule from Japan). I welcome your thoughts.
