Found 3rd Aug 2013
Was passing the Tesco superstore in Dudley, so popped in and found this little bargain on the shelf, Oak aged for 15years... look forward to trying it later tonight! (there were a few more bottles left on the shelf).

Good stuff. Try the J&B Rare I think only Tesco seem to sell it but its amazing my personal favorite usually under £20 a bottle.

Update: its going down very nicely

But I have to say that I prefer the regular 12 year old I usually drink

@ 004800 - thanks for the tip, will give it a shot (pardon the pun)
@ andywedge - I already put both merchant and price into the original post ... not sure why you didn't see it, but thanks if you fixed something

Saw this today in local tesco but saw an offer on the rich oak which I personally prefer

Yea its lovely and a great price, if you can give the glenfiddich 14 a try its amazing

very good price

Will pop down my local later

Is this the Oak Aged 14 or the standard 15 year (solera vat)? I didn't realize there was a 15 year oak, but I could be wrong.

It's oak-aged in store? Is that a new service Tesco are offering?

Looks like it's the solera, which is the 15 year old, and well worth getting at this price.

I actually prefer the 14 year old Oak Aged though.

we've got several litre bottles of whisky of various brands, some in cardboard boxes/tubes which we've had 10/20 yrs if not more, would they be any good?, they have been stored upright. Recently we poured gin/sherry/wine/port down the sink as we have no use for it, but we kept the brandy/whisky/champagne. Oh, we don't drink, they have been gifts over the years

The age provides character to the whisky in the cask. The character is derived from the type of wood and the alcohol that may have been stored in it previously (e.g., sherry). So, unfortunately it won't be enhanced in the cabinet in a bottle.

They will be fine and you are correct to store upright.

Yes excellent stuff. I used to get hammered on it when I worked in London occasionally;) In fact I worked on the same street as their wine merchant shop, just over 20 years ago.

Definately the 15 Solera?
The Tesco at Bradley Stoke Bristol has the 14yo Rich Oak at that price.

Its all subjective, but my personal fave is the 15yo Solera (if you like richer, sherried drams then this one is the key of the bunch). The 15yo Distillery edition is like the 12 year old but amped up in the alcohol and flavour departments, and has some added age. The 18 year old has good complexity and is smooth as silk.

If this is the 15YO Solera cask then this a good deal and a nice whisky as well

Yes it was the 15yr old solera I picked up, but I'm convinced it must have been a missprice, because I've tried a couple of local tesco's and only been able to find the 14yr old rich oak at this price (that didn't stop me stocking up though!).... Glenfiddich just don't do any bad Whisky, and I never suffer the next morning after one too many.

Hi, Whisky should keep and remain drinkable as long as no significant evaporation has taken place from within the sealed bottle.

I collect older sealed whiskies perferablly with good original packaging. Should you be looking to sell any whisky or cognac I am always interested. Please understand that the whisky once bottled no longer matures as it had done in the wooden cask it was bottled from, so it's age remains as it was when bottled.
