Cathay Pacific Asia Miles - for Scotch drinkers
Dec 28, 11, 4:34 am
I have been very happy with my transition from UA to CX. There is one thing, though. I should also say I fly mostly in J. Now, can we encourage CX to provide something a little more adventurous by way of Scotch choices? I have no objections to them that likes Johnny Walker, but in my opinion that stuff ranges from swill to, at the upper reaches, insipid. BA and even UA provide Glenlivet, which is at least an interesting drink, and there are a lot of fun single-malts at the JW Black and Gold price range.

I agree, CX could do a better job to beef up the liquor selection in J, especially with whiskey. Even AA serves Glenlivet, and an actual bourbon (Jim Beam, I miss Makers though), in addition to Canadian Club and a few other choices.

I'm partial to the Islay's so I would recommend the 16yo Lagavulin. At about US$65/750ml it's a very reasonably priced alternative to the, IMHO, much over-hyped JW Blue.
There's also the 30yo Laphroaig; my personal favorite. But at something like $700/bottle (if you can even find it), I'm guessing that CX isn't going to jump on that bandwagon anytime soon.

Laphroaig 10yo would be good enough for me. Or they could be innovative and have a very small but ever-changing selection of single-malts. One can dream.

According to a post in AA Forum AA will only be serving Glenlivet until they run out of current supplies. :(
