Black Bottle Blended Scotch Whisky - £10.00 @ Tesco

Found 19th Dec 2011
Ok, its not a malt, but its a very highly regarded blend amongst the whisky aficionados! If you like your islay style malts (peated), then this would be a great blend for you!

Seriously a bargain! quite hard to find in general stores, and usually in the 15-20 mark.

This one was spotted in Yate, Bristol Tesco's. They also have several other bottles of Malts, which are not normally in most Tesco's I go to in the area! I wish they would be consistent, it would save me petrol! lol

Hope this is of some use to you Malties out there!

Nice one. Hot

nice find.

yep great price. hot.

Excellent price for an excellent Scotch, will have a look tomorrow.

This is a suberb blend of Islay whiskies, and at £10 is a real steal.

Unavailable!

Local or national?

It's showing on the Tesco website so I assume it will be national.

Had loads in Broadstair's Tesco extra, not sure what its like but bearing in mind shop own brands are £12+ for a 70cl bottle this is a good deal, also comes in a nice presentation box, ideal New Years present maybe, obviously this will taste like monkey sick to a true die hard whiskey drinker but if no likely not lighty! Have some heat OP.

Any good??? I noticed this few days ago and it is nice looking boxed Whisky

this has got some rave reviews. would buy a bottle but ive had enough of drinking for this year.

It's recommended in the book "101 Whiskys to Try Before You Die"

Definately the best blended whiskey you can get.

Made up of only Islay Malts and (95% Bunnahabhain)

Well worth trying and infinately superior to the likes of Bells or Grouse

Keep it hidden away for 2 days then!

Check out Ralfy's review on youtube, he loves the stuff

will have a gander on the way home,cheers!!!

My dad really likes this, excellent price just wish it was available in my local store it would have made getting it a great deal easier and cheaper! heat added

Damn good whisky, discovered it at a Game Fair the other year and have been keeping it as an easy dram ever since. Pick up a couple of bottles

Posted this a couple of weeks back to mild response! Well done this poster! grrrr

Found mine in Yate, Bristol Tesco. But none since in the surrounding area!

Might try some, I got some Talisker (obviously not a blended whisky) when it was on offer, but it was actually quite horrible.

hmm worth a look

They've had this in Tesco Dudley for ages. Got one the week before xmas for this price.

I am no expert but my dad likes the Islay malts and so I bought 2 bottles for myself at that price and gave him a double. He likes it very much and so I have managed to get him a bottle too. Price looks vaild til 3/1/12 according to their website, but getting hold of it is gonna be the main problem I reckon.

Definitelynot the best blended whiskey, as it's a whisky not a whiskEy (It's Scottish - not Irish), and it's extremely difficult to say it's the best, though I will cede it is most probably one of the best.
You are correct in saying it's a blend of Islay single malts, but it contains more besides - which is why it is a 'blend' and not a 'blended malt'.
I cannot agree either that it is 'infinitely' superior - mainly because the others might at some time improve, but again I shall agree with you in that I also consider it to be of a far higher quality than most.
In short; it is a very, very good blend, but it's not a blended malt, nor is it a single malt - and it's not a single single malt, nor could it ever be a single single single malt.
Whisky is indeed a fairly sophisticated business, but for the unsophisticated among us - this is a very good deal. Heat added


Jeepers, did I really write that? oO See what happens when people can't get to the shops.:D

Happy New Year Fitz, enjoy your BB X)

This is a regular buy for me every New Year no matter the cost; On the Rocks and enjoy in moderation.................Happy New Year to All

Just been given another bottle, very happy
