This is a smashing deal for a 12 year single malt. I tried some last night and it has a great, long citrus/honey flavour and nose. I highly recommend it. Much better in my opinion than the 10-year old £16 Aberlour at ASDA, which is also a smashing deal. (I purchased the Aberlour and now regret not saving my money for an extra bottle of this!)

All other high-end grocery store brand whiskies are £20, so if you vote cold you should certainly explain yourself. This is a FANTASTIC DEAL!

will this go nice with Panda Pop Coke?
good deal, hot
Nice... their Islay own brand is also very good ..was it the same price too?

edit : no, it would appear not - looking at their website :-(

Their 50cl bottle of this is also on special offer (£13.79) - I picked up one the other night. Higher cost per litre but as they are moving to smaller bottles across the range, it may be the only available option unless you can find the old 70cl stock in store.

I believe, that the change from 70 to 50cl co-incides with an increase in the ABV to 46%, and it is now non-chill filtered, hopefully also no caramel! Sadly they seem to have forgotten it's still a supermarket own brand in a shrunken bottle when they decided on the RRP!

not tried this one, thanks OP
I had a very interesting evening discussing the merits of a bottle of this. We went through 3/4 of the bottle before realising we didn't care anymore....
Some years back when I was living in Canada we had a newfie guy in redoing the bathrooms. My brother had brought over a bottle of 18 year old Bowmore as a birthday present and I offered him a drink. He poured himself a huge measure (must have been significantly more than a quadruple) sniffed it, grimaced and then [to my horror] poured in the contents of a can of some nasty cola which he had on the side. He took a sip, spluttered and said in his uncivilized newfie way "Dats aboot da worst ting I evah did taste" and he proceeded to pour the stuff down the sink. Never will I make such a mistake again.

Did they ever find him in the U bend?
Has anyone ordered this? I ordered 4 bottles, but when delivered the Speyside was unavailable (what a surprise), and they had replaced them with 4 bottles of Islay whisky AT FULL PRICE.

I sent them back of course, but take care you check your receipt if there has been a substitution.
All gone in Hull store, may be the same elsewhere. Why not try hotukdeals.com/dea…449 instead, smaller bottle, higher ABV
