Please note this is 350 ml bottle. In same store 700 ml bottle costs £32!
Given its age they should be selling it off cheap.I bet you could find a bottle of newer stuff cheaper. Will it not have gone past its use by date?

Christmas presents? a bit early
Confirmed nationwide - we purchased yesterday at Edinburgh Gyle store. Great price!
What size is this bottle please. And does anyone know when it finishes?
I think it may be 35cl, but am hoping for at least 70cl.

lol...hope you are joking.. whisky gets costly by age!
At the time writing this title does not specify bottle size.

Misleading title that is more of a strategic move to get more votes as people just see the £10 and Glenfiddich and would vote hot without looking at the later text assuming it's the 70cl bottle. Although a good deal, as it is only half 35cl it's not a smashingly good deal.

The title should say 35cl. Refrained from voting either way for now.

Haha the Glenfiddich 50 year old that got bottled the other year sells for £16,000 a bottle. Apparently takes out of this world but will never be drank, just bought by people to be collected.
Crap deal as mention above. Lack of information, and when you read it fully, works out to be bad value.
Bottle size needs adding to title otherwise its misleading!

Haha, maybe I should click on the deal to read through before voting in future,
but it would appear that I'm not alone in wrongly voting hot where I would not have voted either way.

I have done it myself mate, I think we all have at some point
It's not a great deal. But it's a reasonable price for a bog standard single malt.
In most stores the 70cl bottle is over £32, the exception being Sainsburys who are doing it £10 off for £22.79.

So £10 for half of that is HOT!

Honestly couldn't say the older ones were any superior, they all tasted different but nothing worth paying a premium for! I guess I'm not a connoisseur... though plenty of friends willing to take them off our hands.



Not sure exactly what you mean by older (if you mean the age printed on the bottle ignore me) but once bottled the ageing process stops, the age of a whisky is how long it was in a wooden cask getting flavour and colour from the cask. So an old bottle could be a younger whisky than a newer bottle.

Exactly. If you have a bottle of 12 year old whisky from 1960 you still have a bottle o 12 year old whisky.

Just funny to see how people react to my original posting of the deal. I think it is a good deal because you cannot find it for that low price in any other supermarket. Please note my price comparison figures with other leading supermarkets. Of course we live in a imperfect world and there will be one or two irrational people we got to live with! So no offence felt.

That bloody angels share is demoralizing, in relative terms is 64 years old, This new learning amazes me, Sir Bedevere......my maths is atrocious.

So are you saying a 12 year old bottle from 1960 will taste exactly the same as a 12 year old bottle from 2012. I don't believe that..
Nope it'll probably not be that nice, I'd have thought it would evaporate a bit as well, not sure. But just because a cheap bottle of glenfiddich is from 1947, you haven't got a 70year old whiskey

I voted hot on the basis its probably about as cheap as it'll get for a while with no Christmas rush, also the small bottles are not often cheap. Great gift for someone you only half like!

OK thou pedants. You have a 52 year old bottle of 12 year old whisky (_;)

I didn't say that at all. But I'm not sure if whisky can "go off".

It's how long it's actually aged, whiskey doesn't age in the bottle, it ages in the wood (oak, hickory etc) barrels, once it's sealed in the bottle the aging process stops completely.

Also this deal isn't that great, Glenmorangie is a far better buy and the 75cl bottle can be had on a good deal for £18, but that deal only happens at Tesco occasionally as far as I know.

Would it be true to say that these were all bottled? The important thing is the age BEFORE bottling.

Some say that whisky does still age in the bottle, but this is disputed by others, and may just represent a change in taste rather than a true aging.
10 year Talisker (20cl) is £7.25 in Sainsburys that I bought for a friends anniversary (among other bits) but the reviews of it are a lot better than this one, persoanlly I can't stand any of it!
i've gone for JD instead. 2 x 50cl for £23 from tesco. A completely different kinda drink, but good for the hot weather i guess..
Yep at over £30 for a 70cl bottle a tenner for a 35cl bottle is a good saving hell by two!
