A visit to Tesco today revealed that they have lowered the price of Laphroaig 10yo a further 46p to £21.04.
So I bought another bottle. :iwbrnt:

Waitrose now have there usual excellent Christmas offers on now (A'Bunadh 24.99, laph 10 20.99 etc, etc) but this year with some surprises like Laga 16 with 15% off at 33.99. Don't think I've seen Laga on offer for a long long time.

Aberlour 10, half price at Booths (from £26.99 to £13.49) from tomorrow. No problem finding it in store, as there should be a big display of it as you walk in. Though once it's gone, there probably won't be any for quite a while, judging by the amounts I saw on the allocation list.

They had a similar offer last year on that, and it is very good. I may have to take them up on it again. Thanks.

Unfortunately our local Booth's only stocks Glenlivet 12, Glenmo Original, Glenfiddich 12 and Old Pulteney 12.

But thanks, I'll have a look anyway.

Which Booths is it you go to again? I can check how many it's been sent (I'm pretty sure every branch got some whether they stock it or not)

It's the Normoss branch.

No Aberlour when I went, but Old Pulteney going for £15. And Bowmore Legend on the shelves at £11.49.

Ah, Normoss. Teeny tiny store. Bad luck. Still, you can always ask them to get you a bottle or two (anything can be sent to another store within one day). Or you can go to Haven Road store in Lytham where they probably have plenty. Half price Aberlour only lasts until Wednesday, though.

Marks & Sparks doing Deanston 12yo 46.3% unfiltered no artificial colour for £20.99. Rare to see any brands sold in M&S. We sell this for £30.30.

They used Deanston as house malt in special gift box last year.

Had a look at Waitrose today, and was spoilt for choice. They have some excellent offers on. I ended up with the Aberlour 16yo for £23.99. They also had the A'Bunadh, batches 27 and 28 which I might have to go back for soon.

It's not the 46.3% UCF in M&S - just the 40% one which is exclusive to M&S AFAIK, shame really.

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.


I had to pick up another bottle of this today, as my previous one has nearly all gone.

I've got a fair old selection in at home at the moment, but I am really enjoying this one. A great everyday whisky at a brilliant price.

I think he is saying that it is in the Co-op and that the particular store he went in was a Somerfield but has been rebranded a Co-op (the Co-operative Group bought Somerfield a while ago and are rebranding them one at a time rather than on mass).

The M&S in Livingstone has the 46.3% Deanston. They did the 40% last year in a wooden box.

Only 15 £ for an Old Pulteney? :shock:
I paid 35 Euro's in July for such a bottle in the (only) local whisky shop. I knew it was an expensive one but this is just too much.
