Supermarket's Own Brand Whisky - Does anyone know if there a

Boys and Girls
Always on the hunt for a bargain, does any one know of any Supermarket own brand bargains? In particular, any Peat Monsters from Islay?

I recently tried the Aldi Islay. Packed a punch. The M'n'S was a bit lack luster.


Come onb people, what do you know ?

I was wondering if anyone had tried Tesco's own stuff as it's all 12 yr old and very cheap.

The blender is Richard Paterson so all their whiskies suddenly look very tempting.

The Tesco Islay (Ardnave)is Bruichladdich (as was their previous Glen Cairn Bottling ), i havn't found a Peat Monster Islay amongst any of the Supermaket bottlings tho the Safeway one is the best of the lot .

Have you had the Ardnave?

I was a big fan of the old Whyte and Mackay version of Bruichladdich. I'm not so big a fan of the current bottling. I wonder how this stuff compares.

Anyone know what the Tesco's Highland and Speyside whiskies consist of?

Ardnave 12 yr (unchilfiltered) from Tesco's is superb! I'm on my fourth glass as we speak.

It has that chewy roast beef taste that I so like in a whisky. It resembles the old Whyte and Mackay Bruichladdich as opposed to the current Murray Mcdavid bottling which I hope is a help to you.

At the price, it's worth anyone's money.
