I was just going to mention this. I picked up a bottle this morning.

I also got a bottle of 18 year old Glen Marnoch at Aldi yesterday for the same price. I'd never heard of it before, but tried a drop last night, and it was very pleasant. Certainly worth the price.

£30 was the 'reduced to clear' price as of Monday. After that's gone, it's gone for good at Booths.

The Caoran Reserve at £29 a bottle (as it is in Asda) is over priced as there are far better whiskys out there.

For £20 its very drinkable and to be honest im enjoying very much.

Imho.

Ive not done a tasting note (yet) but reading your notes willie i totally agree with this part

'you are looking for something to drink and not pay too much attention to then its pretty enjoyable'

youve hit the nail on the head there , hence no notes yet :D

The only specials I've seen on whiskeys here in Ireland recently have been Powers gold Label for €20 in Dunnes which is 6quid off and Bushmills original/white for about €23 which is only about €2.50 off :(. They also had/have Tullamore Dew for a score.


I heard Glasgow Airport has two bottles of Tyconnell Single Malt for £30 but don't know if they've anything on the cask finishes.


I wish I lived closer to Newry :p
Hate the way we get fleeced on booze here. I emailed O'Briens asking would there be any specials around the bank holiday weekend but nada.

Although not an offer yet but my local Sainsburys have started to sell Glenrothes Select Reserve at £29.99, which seems a good price for the bottle.
