Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength Whisky 1 Litre - £46.49 @ Sold by The Grapevine and Fulfilled by Amazon

30
Found 31st Jan
1 litre of a cask strength (60%) very well regarded whisky.

Sold by a third party but fulfilled by Amazon.

£3 cheaper to buy the 1 litre bottle than the 70 CL, so essentially half a standard sized bottle of whisky free

Great way to fall off the dry January band wagon

30cl more does not equate to "essentially half a bottle free"

5cl more would be half a bottle free, and it's £3 cheaper, so it's pretty accurate.

No, but the other £3 you save works out just over 4cl of whisky (based on the cost of the 70cl bottle), add that to the 30cl and that is essentially half a bottle free.

Thanks for your wonderfully helpful input though, just maybe engage the brain a little more before typing your insightful comments next time

Exactly - just over 34%, not half.

Looks like you need to follow your own advice.

For £49.50 you would get 1.06L of whisky at this price, i.e. an additional 360ml, which is a little over 50% 'free' whisky.

Not sure where your 34% comes from. [Edit - just realised this is using the 1L bottle as 'base' for free whisky which is incorrect].

Anyway, great deal and purchased.

I think Ben was referring to half of the 70cl bottle for free, NOT half of the 1l bottle. Half of the 70cl bottle is only 35cl.

Not incorrect - it's equally correct.

Fine, however, the aforementioned product is the 1L bottle. I used that as the basis.

I think that's enough of the internet for me today

Is this page to give heat for a good deal or the Jeremy Kyle show. I got to the bottom of the comments and forgot what the deal was! Heat given anyway.

after all that i still don't want to buy at that price

So this would be the 'alternate facts' phenomenon I've heard so much about...

This is a fairly standard price, it's nearly always £40 - £45 when I've looked in the past from Amazon sellers.

It's fairly decent stuff, kept me going for a good 6 weeks or so.

​Sorry but not equally correct. Even if you worked out the correct percentage of a litre this is rarely used in percentage change calculations or in percent extra advertising. You would've been better off apologising instead of appearing like a petulant child.

I work out things per litre or kilo. The 1L bottle is 35% cheaper per litre than the 70cl bottle. Fact. Not opinion.

i believe the statement you were attempting to correct was however quite clear in referencing the size of bottle as "standard" - I think every other reader interprets a standard bottle as 70cl, hence - essentially half a standard sized bottle of whisky free - is a more accurate statement.

Your continued refusal to admit egg on your face, either that you misread a post, or got your calculation wrong is churlish and reminds me of my 16 year old son - never accepts he is wrong....

You rest no case. The OP amended the description to include a "standard bottle", as per post #11, after my initial comment.

Well after all this I decided to buy the Oban for £35 anyway.

I never want to see half a bottle of free whisky again!!

Bought one of these recently as it's a lot cheaper than the 700ml per litre. It's a real sherry bomb of a whisky, deffo helps with a splash of water to bring out more of the flavours and take a little of the alcohol content out, despite being such a high % it tastes very smooth considering. Great buy!

it's £43.38 now. can somebody work out how much extra that is over the 70cl bottle please.
