The Glenlivet 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve - £33 @ Tesco

Found 5th Dec 2014
Normally this is around the £42 mark, knocked down to £33. For a 15 year old malt that's not a bad price at all, especially for this as its meant to be a very good drop of scotch.

Tasting notes from the master of malt:

The nose is rich and oaked. There are notes of chewy resinous wood with a well-balanced acidity. Fudge and Madeira with apple crumble with calvados. The palate is full and rich with winter spice; cinnamon and cloves, thick oak with developing aridity. The finish is long and dry with a peppery note.

What a ripoff

If this was £20 I would def buy it and it would go super hot.

If it was £20 I'd buy it by the caseload and they'd probably be losing money on it. Still not a bad deal. Good scotch ain't cheap. As the other guy said, there's a Glenlivet 12 for £20, that's a good deal too. Or if you can stretch to an extra fiver, Highland Park 12 is £25.

That said I've heard good things about the £13 vatted malt Lidi do, I just don't know what its called.

Bought this on Friday for £27 in Brent Cross Tesco
