Was in Morrisons today and I saw that Three Barrels Brandy is reduced in price, a 70cl bottle for £10. The 1 Litre bottle was reduced as well but I forgot to make a note of that price but I thought it was a better deal with the 70cl bottle. The 70cl was cleared off the shelves so customers where opening boxes stacked on the floor to grab a bargain.

Somebody asked this week on HUKD if there was any brandy deals,I hope this is nationwide! Brandy and Babycham makes a nice drinky!

VSOP = very special old pale. Hmm but so are a lot of things that don't taste like cognac.

3 Barrels is a wonderful brandy mixed with Coke.
It reminds me of my childhood.
Before supermarkets and corner shops were actually allowed to sell booze my Mum used to buy this for me from the off licence. As a young teen I used to get blasted on this listening to Hendrix, Velvet Underground and the Doors amoungst others on my headphones.
The early 80's weren't completely wasted.8)

I drink a lot of brandy, always with coke and this brandy is no better than any of the budget brandies sold in supermarkets at £13-14 per litre. I honestly do not know what the extra expense is for. You can taste the deliciousness in Martell, Couvoisier, Remy, Hennessy, Asbach etc and if I was richer would certainly buy one of these brands, but there is no improvement in taste when buying Three Barrels rather than supermarket own brands at much less cost.

I will vote hot because it is cheaper than normal but try the supermarket own brands as well.

XO is better than VSOP this brandy is just your average tasting brandy, best with a mixer
If you want a good brandy look for the word "Armagnac" on the label and be prepared to pay £25.00+

There are a number of spirits at £10 at the moment. Limited to 6 bottles of any £10 spirit.

Actually Armagnac is not better than a cognac, it simply refers to the fact that it is a brandy produced from armagnac grapes. Also in a cognac you will find that VSO, VSOP and XO (extra old) are from older barrels than a armagnac and from 2016 all XO cognac will have a minimum storage age of 10 years. You want a really good cognac then XO is standard fair but then you can go higher still with Vieille Réserve and the Hors d'âge not to mention of course the curs where the grape is grown which also defines a brandy.
This passes as a VSOP because it passes the requirements because it is held in the cask for a minimum of 4 years but doesn't make it taste good
If like most people you are wanting a brandy to mix with coke you cant go wrong with this for £10 so for that reason despite fact I wouldnt drink it voted hot

You're right I was being unkind, sorry. With mixers I expect it's great.

VSOP = Very Silly Old Punter, in that it is is legally meaningless and can be put on any bottle of brandy of any quality.
Not a bad price these days, but if you're mixing it you might as well get supermarket's own brand.

I drink brandy neat.
Courvoisier is by far one of the better brandys but for a low cost average alternative then Three Barrels is fine.
Never tried supermarket own label brandy, simply because many of them are not 40% abv. they tend to be 37.5% abv

To be honest I think the old saying "you get what you pay for" should be remembered a £10.00 or so bottle of any brand of brandy is not going to be as good as the more expensive brands, but drunk for less than a tenner cant be bad.

Someone bought me some Remy Martin the other year probably cost them close to £30.00, i didnt like it yuk, mixed it with dandelion and burdock with a splash of lemonade lovely (i must be dead common)
cheers
