They have;

Highland Single Malt

12 years old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. An outstanding example of Highland malt whisky making. The taste is mellow & subtle. Floral, fruity notes on the nose complement the wonderful vanilla edge leading to a creamy full taste and a glowing, spicy aftertaste. An imaginary line, running from the river Clyde estuary near Greenock on the west coast of Scotland to the river Tay in Dundee on the east coast, defined the Highland region. The Highland region is north of the imaginary line. The western Highland malts can be dry with a hint of peatiness which contrasts with the floral, fruity northern & southern highland malts.

Islay Single Malt

12 years old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Islay malts are different to all other whiskies. This single Islay malt is distinctively smokey on the nose, deliciously fruity to tasty & glides to a smooth peppery, smokey, lingering finish. Islay ("eye-luh") is a wind-swept island off the west coast of Scotland. The malts from this region are particularly distinctive. The smokey character inherent in Islay malts is tantalisingly different from all other malts & combined with their fascinating, dry, lingering finish, these malts are truly great whiskies.

Speyside Single Malt

12 years old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Wonderfully fragrant with top notes of pear drops & rose petal. The inviting bouquet leads to a fascinating balanced taste with clear hints of vanilla & citrus fruits. The after taste is long & mildly dry. Speyside is a sub-region of the Highland malt whisky producing region, situated on the east coast of Scotland. The Speyside region produces come of the finest malts in Scotland, renowned for their floral & fruity characteristics.

All £13.50 each was £18

Not a bad price for a single malt, tastes ok too but i have only tried the Highland one today.

ENJOY

X) Honestly some people

They have Bowmore for £18 something, and Laphroig @ £20.

Even the Glen Moray 8 year which is usually the cheapest malt in supermarkets isn't rated all that badly (though i've never tried it) and is usually around £16 a bottle.

If you're bothering with a single malt, might as well buy a good one.

If you really are on a budget and want a decent drinkable whisky, Johnnie Walker Red is £13.50 at the moment I reckon, and probably better than this stuff, single malt or not...

Thanks, at least some people know what they are talking about

Speyside is my fav out of these. Great value for a single malt, Cheers.

I'll confess to the uneducated opinion. I've done some googling and it seems that it's not the usual supermarket own brand crap, and is actually fairly decent (the Islay in paticular)

Respect to you.

I haven't tasted it either and probably won't. I've gone off whisky though I used to like a nice malt.

Actually maybe I will have a bottle at Christmas, this might be a suitable Great Recession candidate

Islay one is much better

I've a bottle of the Islay one, and it is very good. It is a 12 year old single malt, and it comes from one of the Islay distilleries, so it has to be good, and it is. This is a cracking buy.

I believe these have gone back up to £18, but there could be a £5 off voucher in the £40 booklet they offer for a £40 spend.

Suberb value Islay Malt - bought another bottle today at £13.50. Nice smokey taste - anybody got any idea which distillery it is from?
