I think it was parenthetically during a recent Vbt that Bird (Scott) observed to Tony that a given whiskey was a good travelling whiskey. He may have meant it semi-humorously (or not), but I liked the observation. It got me thinking: what makes a good travelling whiskey? I would say a whiskey that is good quality and flavorful but not too demanding, as indeed Bird's suggestion (a wheater, perhaps a VW) showed. When trying to relax during travels one wants something soothing and good but not again too exacting - that should be left for studied moments at home.
My ideal travelling whiskey probably is Four Roses Yellow Label.
