Whisky... help?

First of all could anyone point me in the right direction as to how and what you look for in a decent whisky?

And has anyone seen any good deals about, I guess if I know more I'd have a better chance of finding something.

Many thanks

If it's for a present, why not consider http://www.thefamousgrouse.com
Famous Grouse is one of the best blended whiskys, and online you can personalise the label.
Cost is £17.99 + £4.95 delivery

Thank you :)

If you're looking for a decent whisky then I wouldn't go for a blended whisky like Famous Grouse. Go for a malt, I'd suggest Talisker or Glenmorangie which will cost about £25 for 70cl.

Whisky,of which there are a great many to choose from,can be a matter of personal taste.

I do not drink it myself but my husband who is partial to the odd tot swears by Bushmills.It is an Irish whisky and very,very smooth,you should be able to pick up a 70cl bottle for around £18.

Another friend of mine says that Laphroig is also very good,it is a whisky with a peaty flavour to it.Apparently most blended whiskies(so he tells me) have Laphroig in them,that should cost you around £22.

thank you again :)

The Glenmorangie looks nice, they all taste the same to me so I find it very hard to know if its a decent one or not lol.

I tend to just drink it, make some unsightely facial expression... burn up and repeat :p

If they all taste the same i wouldnt bother going for a "decent" bottle, as said its all about personal taste. If theres no difference to you, you can just go for the cheapest:)

Malt whiskeys are much better than blended ones. A good rule of thumb is the older the whisky the finer it is.

Check out Threshers - they usually top brand whiskey deals on about this time.

One to look out for is the Glenmorangie Burgundy Finish (search Threshers & Tesco - one or the other usually has it below £20). Its finished in old Burgundy wine casks and really adds another level to the flavour.

Good luck
