12 years old,I thought they were not allowed to sell stuff past their sell by date!(_;)
been this price for a couple of weeks, along with glenfiddich 12 year old which is 20 pound something.
Nice enough whisky, and a major component of Johnny Walkers.

However the description is pure marketing b*ll*cks copied and pasted from somewhere.

"limited quantities" - current production is over 2 million litres / year!
"proper way / traditional way" - it's made the same as every other single malt, and it couldn't legally be called malt whisky if it wasn't made from malted barley, water and distilled in copper stills before being matured in oak casks for over 3 years!

Ho hum, but have a little heat for the deal, though the original price is Sainsbury's over inflated for 4 weeks price to make the discount appear larger. It usually sells for around £28/bottle!
