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.

Any chance of a tasting note to go with your very worthy opinion?

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.

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)
