Long term deal because it's always available around this price

still a good price for a 10 year old whiskey.
Good deal for the moment and it's a ten year old, it seems these are getting harder to get hold of at this price as all the distilleries produce more inferior, non-age statement whisky to put on sale in the supermarkets for £20 ish

I'd rather have a good NAS whisky than this inferior age-stated whisky

As much as I hate the move to NAS whiskey I agree that this is only selling itself based on it's age, there are much better blended and NAS options at this price.

Cold because it's always this price!

Hot, because I like it and it's reasonably priced. I'm a relatively inexperienced whiskey drinker, Can you guys share the whisky you would recommend over this, so I can also try them...Cheers

Personally, I've found that cheaper whiskies tend to be a bit one-dimensional, but the base Chivas Regal and Monkey Shoulder are regularly at this price and are a lot smoother than the Aberlour 10. Once you get above £30 things get a bit more interesting and I would highly recommend the Bunnahabhain 12 (non-peated Islay), a bit more money and I'd go for the Clynelish 14 which is a very delicate, floral whiskey which grows in the glass. But ultimately you will develop your own preferences.
Thanks Rob. I'll take a look...I tend to prefer a fiery whiskey, rather than a smoother one. Jamesons etc don't cut the mustard for me. .

Without trying to sound like a snob, Scotch is 'whisky' and Irish like Jamesons is 'Whiskey'.
If you like the peaty/smokey stuff then the whisky from islay is for you. Laphroaig, Laguvulin or non islay ones like Talisker and Highland Park are a good start.
I'd also add Isle of Jura to the recommended list, they have a clear indication of the flavour profile on the side of the box (rather than the usual marketing BS), with a good range of whiskies to choose from.
Oh, and if you like something with a bit of a kick, then the Aberlour A'bunagh has a bit of a kick, and I have never read a bad review of it.
All very interesting guys, thanks for the info. Looks like there are a few for me to try.

Actually I bought my wife a cheap bottle the other day because she likes it with a mixer, £12, from Morrisons. Called 'Label 5', not a bad drink at all for the money.
If you mix single malt, then we will find you! ;-)
Label 5 at £12 is not bad and really £12-£13 is all you should be paying if you're adding a mixer. At this price avoid the big name scotch blends and hit Aldi or Lidl for Highland Black or Queen Margot 8 year old blends. Lidl also have Glen Orchy 5 year old blended malt which is very smooth with coke, ginger ale etc. at about the same price. Although they are great mixers you could also offer any of these neat to a guest without bringing shame on your home, something I wouldn't be as confident of with Grants, Bells, Red Label etc.

For good value single malts look out for supermarket reductions on Glenmorangie Original, Highland Park or Old Pulteney 12 year olds. Expect to pay £25-£28 on offer.

Once you've tried a few standard expressions and have a sense of what you like you can then experiment with some of the more interesting bottlings that are invariably more expensive.
