Morrisons have knocked £7 off a selection of their stock. I got a bottle of HP 12 for just over £21. They also have the Glenfiddich Rich Oak (which is very nice) for just under £24. Old Pulteney was around £17.

There was a couple more, but I cant remember which.

Sainsbury's has 20% off all 'branded spirits', which seems to include most, if not all, the malt whiskies. Pretty annoyed to see this meant £6 off 15 yo Dalwinnie, a week after I bought a bottle at full price :evil: I think I will be back for more, however. :wink:

I noticed that yesterday. They had Lagavulin for £32, but I've still got a bottle from when they did the same deal earlier in the year so I didn't bother. I hope this 20% off is going to become a regular of theirs, and that others follow.

I know that feeling. Just bought a Benromach Peat Smoke at £25.28 and noticed that Benromach Organic was the same price. After I bought one at £37 last week :evil:

I guess I just have to buy a couple more at discounted price to make up for that :wink:

It happens. Why don't you just buy a second bottle at the discounted price and drink the other in celebration?

Aberlour 10 - £14.25 at Booths. Worth going for if you're in the North. I'm going to get a couple (disclaimer - I work there, but the offer is real - most should have a big pile of Aberlours just inside the store).

Thanks! That's my Thursday sorted. Off to the Marton branch - or, if necessary, the shiny new Lytham store.

JTW..what is/was the Ardmore like? I've never tried it. My local Co-op is almost outside my front door but had none. No Glenmorangie 10 for 19.99 either.

I think the staff got there first! :evil:

Ah...good. I wondered. :mrgreen:

Just been up to Tesco. The Glenmorangie 10 is on at £20. A penny more than the Co-op and it was in plentiful stock...

Yes, that's the one. I had never heard of it before and the boxes looked a little on the cheap side. Has anybody here tried it?

Laphroaig 10 - £20, Isle of Jura - £19.85, Glenlivet 12 - £20 are just a few of the 25% off promotion ASDA are running. You've probably seen the ads in the newspapers. Available until the 13 December.

ASDA also selling Lagavulin 16 for £30.36 and Balvenie 12 DoubleWood for £20.97.

Just tried the Ardmore and i was slightly disappointed, I'm not an expert but this was a bit ordinary, maybe even raw tasting, given that it is non chilled filtered matured in quarter casks and 46%. It also says peated, and it didn't taste very peaty at all, but I am an Islay fan.

Jesus C57, do you think Sainsburys are offering a meal deal like an Italian pasta main meal, a nice pudding and a bottle of Scotch :shock: I`ll get my coat.
Mind i have to admit i have had scotch with pepperoni pizza before, hell it worked for me. :P

If the shelves are empty at the Co-op it's worth asking if they have stock elsewhere, they fetched an extra one for me from somewhere.

On the subject of ASDA, i've not found any in London so far that have more than about 6 single malts. Their website shows a much larger range. Has anyone seen Talisker 10, Bruichladdich Rocks, Auchentoshan in stores in/around London?

Sainsbury's 12 Year Old Islay Malt Whisky is well worth the current 15.19 price. I've not tried the Highland from same range but that one is in the Observer's Christmas list this year.

The Highland is fin, for me, if I'm in the mood its just what I want but also drops below required level if I'd had something decent before. Maybe a MacDuff.
