Speyside whiskies - deal comparison

UPDATED on 18-July-2013

Updates to pricing. Significant change of pricing - end of many promotions at Asda and others. Apart from very few - most whisky prices are close to normal level...

Link to my rum & brandy comparison table deal: hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…712

-----------------------------------

As I'm a Speyside whisky fan - here is the little comparison table that should help you to plan your shopping trips!

The selection here is what I like rather than a complete list of all available malts. These are widely sold at most of the supermarket chains. If you like the other whisky, I can share my little excel file (send me a pm) and you can create other comparison tables, i.e. Islay whiskies etc.

(see picture below)

I will try to keep it up to date similar to SIM Only hottest deal...
Please PM me when prices change, and I will make necessary changes as soon as I can.

No worries, I got tired of comparing the prices all the time before going to shops, then writing it down etc - now all I need is the link to the table. I hope you find it useful.

Ryszard Ochódzki always rules:-)!

Great idea. Bought some of the abelour 10 yesterday, pleasantly surprised for the price.

Aberlour's a bargain at £18

So is Glenfiddich and Glenlivet @ £20!

The good deals included in the list have already been posted separately:

hotukdeals.com/dea…954

Could be useful for those looking for specifics though.

Not convinced I would call Glenmorangie a 'Speyside'.

Very true, however to me (personal opinion) it carries the "speyside character" despite being a highland dram.

Why no morrisons? They have the same price as tesco for glenfiddich ATM.

Good work otherwise!

Is there an online pricing for whisky on Morrison's website - I couln't find it?...

Obviously this is a single malt thread but has anyone tried Lochlan blended? I really like it (too much) . It's down from £18 to £15 in Tesco. ..what I call a midweek whisky (_;)

jura is also only £20 a bottke in Tesco at the moment. nice work fella! have some heat

I think I'd be worried if I were planning my shopping trips based on the price of whiskey haha.

Good effort, though. =]

No dalwhinnie has to be a cold deal and yeah its not a speyside malt.Nevermind ill save my pennies.

Nice bit of "research" Rys. Slainte mhar.Tgr.

So just to clarify, you're voting a Speyside Malt comparison deal cold because it doesn't have Dalwhinnie in it. Even though you openly state that Dalwhinnie isn't a Speyside Malt?

Interesting logic.

Start with one of the best - Glenlivet 15yo French Oak, pour yourself a decent amount into a glass neat say about 50-100ml and add two ice cubes. Wait 20 sec for ice to start melting, then have your first sip. Skip the ice cubes for the second and third glass. Drink slowly, by sipping small amounts.

And a golden advice on how to drink "high voltage" (% vol) spirits - inhale (and hold), drink, exhale slowly through your mouth. Even harsh spirits are then made smooth. A method designed and perfected in Eastern Europe...

Ice cubes in Glenlivet 15?!? Good way to close up all those aromas. Stick with Bells.

It's a not bad tipple that Glenlivet, not done it with cubes mind, saying that i don't do cubes at all. Not on the list but will be buying a bottle of The Old Pulteney from Tesco 25 bar.

Water please... (preferably scottish bottled water)..

Of those listed, Aberlour 10 is the best deal IMO... it tastes better than a 10 year old should.. a really nice smoky drop that is

For a newbie, small amount of ice will make it even smoother - it'll dillute the drink a bit, reduce the harshness caused by a relatively high alcohol concentration, also by cooling it a notch. As one develops the taste for whisky, there is certainly no point in adding ice. Water - maybe - for these that do not appreciate the "bite" of (especially) the cask strength, but we are then talking about fairly advanced whisky fan, rather than someone who's just trying something more sophisticated than cheap blends or JD&Coke...

Don't get me wrong, I know how to drink and appreciate a good dram, and the above is just an easy introduction into good single malts for someone not used to drinking spirits neat - for the taste and not just to get plastered fast...

Thanks for the tips.

I just moved to glasgow and had my first tipple of Glenmorangie a couple weeks ago, not as harsh as I thought it was going to be

I can't be arrised to post a new deal but Glenmorangie 10yo is £20,38 at Costco from 10 - 30 June for anyone interested.
Almost a fiver cheaper than in the table above but nice one to OP for taking the time to collate that lot.
Heat added,

Fantastic work!

I know that Costco isn't something that is accessible to everyone, but I always check the prices in the supermarkets before my trips there. So this table is fantastic.

FYI 70 cl Glenmorangie 10 yr will be £20.38 (inc VAT) 10th - 30th June. One of my absolute faves. Normally £19.99 ex VAT

Max purchase 12....... Shame ,

Nice work.

Anyone know any deals on Islay whiskies at the moment? Anyone tried the M&S own brand?

Just drink the stuff and stop moaning, typical scots. I doubt you can tell the difference between Bells.

no … no laphroaig?http://www.luxist.com/2008/06/05/prince-charles-visits-laphroaig-confirms-royal-warrant/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laphroaig_distillery



Perhaps you missed the key word in the title of the post "Speyside" (_;)

It is easy to tell the difference between Bells products and just about any whisky.

Just by looking at them I can manage it.
