You are kidding? That's like calling the Ford Focus the 'King of cars'. Mass produced, and barely decent.
So glad I stopped drinking this years ago. Like most things in life, you gets what you pays for.

It's 25% off all malt whiskeys at the moment at Asda.

Nice :-)
Just picked me up a Bottle!

Asda do much better whiskies and Glenfiddich is never "normally £25-£27". The Rocks one in the tin is a great deal.

There are a fair few decent distilleries in Scotland, and they all produce decent batches of Whiskies here and there (although they can also mass produce some cheaper Whiskys themselves, but it's the Single cask/small batch Whiskies you need to look at).

I tend to stick to Tomintoul, Dalmore, and Cragganmore for frequently used drams for sharing with friends and family, but spend a fair bit more on bottles just for me (had a bottle of Wemyss "Tropical Spice", which was incredible, but alas they only produced 760 or so bottles, so the one I had is the only one I'll ever have :(), but it all depends what type of single malt you like.

Hunt around on some online Whisky shops (I use Royal Mile Whiskies, and The Whisky exchange. They normally have pretty nice drams for a reasonable price).
But like I said, you gets what you pays for, so don't expect a fantastic bottle for £20.

My point was just that Glenfiddich 10/12yr olds are at the lower end of the single malt scale, so someone calling them the 'King of Whiskies' is pretty far from the truth.
£18 is still good for an 'OK' Whisky, so this is in no way a bad deal.

Oh Christ yes. I know I slated it, but it's not THAT bad.


Waitrose have a 15yr old Dalmore on offer for around £37 I think, that's a fairly decent dram for the money.

Glenfiddich is the best selling malt in the world, so it can't be that bad.

Damn, there's no snob like a Whisk(e)y snob!

Glenfiddich is definitely better than just an ok Whisky it's actually a damn fine one and probably one of the best in it's price range.

Yes, there are better but you're looking at serious dosh to buy them.

Good deal this.

I'll pick myself up a bottle of Glenmorangie for Christmas.

Yes, I'm a Whisky snob, I wont deny it. But I'm still right :p.
I also thought Glenfiddich was great, until a Scottish friend introduced me to his collection, and I haven't bought a bottle since.
I did also say this isn't a bad deal, I was just responding to the 'King' comment. I wouldn't refuse a glass if it was offered to me.

Being the best selling malt in the world doesn't mean it's the best quality, or anywhere near it. I'd go as far as saying there are hundreds of better malts around right now, but they aren't mass produced, so they will never be the best selling because there aren't enough of them to sell.

My bottle of Wemyss Tropical Spice got raving reviews, some experts calling it the best Whisky they'd tasted in the last 10 years. But there were less than 800 bottles of this single cask whisky, so what chance would have of being 'a best selling malt in the world'?
Yes, it cost me £75 (which even now I think was worth it, and I'm just an IT techie on an average wage), but there's not a chance I would have swapped it for 4 bottles of Glenfiddich, I would have missed out on the pleasure of drinking the stuff.

Not to say there aren't cheaper Whiskies that aren't great, I got a bottle of Tomintoul 16yr old for £20 a few months ago on special offer, and it's a lovely dram. But again, although they produce a fair amount, it's nowehere near the likes of Glenfiddich or Glenmorangie (they put the price up a bit since then as they keep selling out, so was obvious it was a little TOO cheap - around the £30 mark I think).

Glenfiddich is just good value for under £20, nothing more. It's quite a light, bland single malt. It's the Ford Focus of the Whisky world (or Toyota Corolla if we're going to stick with the 'best selling xxxxxx in the world').

All the fellow alcoholics get to Co-op well before I ever manage to, so might as well go to Asda!

Well, tesco have a bottle of 18 yr old 'The Glenlivet' in a presentation box for £30.

Bottled directly at the distillery, I think it's good deal for a decent whisky to see me through the xmas period.

I am with Jukkie all the way.The far better buy amongst Asda's 25% off offerings is their own 12yr old Islay (probably Caol Ila) and has bags of light smoky peaty flavour at the remarkable price of £13.50. For a bit extra there is the Balvenie Doublewood or Signature or the Bruichladdich, Talisker or Highland Park. The only reason that Glenfiddich is the biggest selling whisky in the world is the marketing and production volumes.

Needs to get out more

Needs to get out more


What does knowing a bit about Whisky have to do with getting out?
It was nearly Twenty to Ten in the evening when I made that post, and I had work the next day. Where else should I have been?

Logic fail.

Maybe I should just refuse to give people advice if they ask for it in the future, what sort of world would we live in if that was everyone's attitude?
