considering the 2 free glasses, it's a pretty good price - but honestly Cardhu gold is the worst single malt I've ever purchased and I ended up mixing it with Coke - which actually tasted really nice. It's sickeningly sweet and has too much caramel colouring.
Long may it last!
I tend to find these sort of deals in Tesco. I suppose it depends on the store and what they have over stocked.
I've done well out of Asad recenttly - I think they must have been clearing the shelves for christmas stock but this is the second single malt scotch I've got for £15 - the last one was back on sale on the shelves at full price a couple of weeks later so I don't know why they needed to get rid of the one I got!
No worries, got a little excited there, couldn't miss out on a deal like that (lol) Good find!
Been keeping an eye out for weeks at our local one and never even seen them
These are last year's edition, this year it is Missoni which are £8 in Sainsbury's. I bought these from B&M in Cleveleys yesterday for £2.99, plenty left.
Me too all my locals are oos
Yup, they were indeed £2.99 in B&M. Are they still though? Not in mine thats for sure, I've been keeping an eye out for them.
yes for a set of 3
I've got the black one of this and it's really good. Ordered one of these as price is good compared to Amazon
Wow :o strawberry gin, nice. Price not too bad too
Back in stock! Nice find Op..
now showing oos :(
Bought a few got free shipping over £75
£4.95 for delivery so true total is £39.85. although the gift set is nice for anyone just wanting the whiskey by itself its currently £30 on amazon delivered. Link here.
These reviews have put me off, it's an above average price brand but doesn't look like their whisky is worth the money. Glenfarclas 15yo is a much better shout at less than £50. 'Dalmore to me seem to put all the emphasis on creating a premium brand rather than creating good whisky. This is chill filtered, colourant added and bottled at the minimum legal strength in the UK of 40%. But sold at quite a premium price in a very flashy bottle.' 'Very disappointed with this one. Fantastic packaging but you can't drink that! Beautifully presented colour wise. That's all the good bits out of the way. Totally lacking anything like a complex nose, just a whiff of caramel. Taste barely exists. Slight caramel taste then alcohol burn' 'I am just now finishing a bottle of the pre-2008 whisky, which is superb. But it obviously is not the same whisky as the new-fangled Dalmore 12 yr. My old bottle is 43% ABV, and is not the dark amber color (i.e. the pre-2008 whisky probably does not have caramel food coloring'
12 was average at best. No way worth the premium price. In no rush to go further up the price ladder with them.
Not that impressive going off the reviews I've read. They also add colourants to their whiskies which gives it the dark brown colouring.
The Dalmore range really is an impressive tasting whisky, you most certainly get what you pay for! :)
Nearly twice the price of the 15yo posted the other day. Is it twice as good or does the law of diminshing returens apply here?
Me 2 selling fast tho
Yeh picked these up. £2.99 B&M
Only £2.99 in b&m.
Thought it was an amplifier or motorbike deal for a minute.
Reyka is the best by a long way imo
My sister, to my surprise, likes Ciroc out of all the more premium vodkas. Don't see as much love out there on the forums for this one. Still yet to try the Kirkland Signature Vodka (the French version, not American) which gets a lot of love and many comparisons to Grey Goose https://www.chowhound.com/post/grey-goose-kirkland-signature-brand-vodka-653475 Though I can see the top comment on that (older) chowhound link says "Neither Grey Goose or Kirkland are the best vodkas for the price. Sobieski Polish vodka is the cheapest and the best,. It ranks right up there with Grey Goose and other expensive brands. In fall 2007, Sobieski Vodka was ranked the #1 premium vodka in a blind-tasting of 108 vodkas, the largest review of vodkas in U.S. history from the Beverage Testing Institute and earned a Gold Medal and Best Buy Award. It was also ranked #1 in a blind tasting conducted among 25 major vodka brands by one of France's top wine and spirits publication, La Revue du Vin de France." Never heard of Sobieski, will have to look out for that one.
For me, Belvedere is the best vodka out there at around £30 for 70cl. Bison Grass is the best value for money, and Green Mark is pretty decent too. Grey Goose should be around the £15 mark for what it is, it's just down to clever marketing that they can get away with charging £30+ for it. On par with Russian Standard & Smirnoff in terms of taste, unfortunately.
Green Mark at sainsbury is ok too was £15 a litre the other day . Grey Goose is way overpriced , and in numerous taste tests doesn't do that well . I got a bottle of Russian Standard Platinum a few years back in a tesco clearance for £11 and did a side by side taste test with grey goose and RS Platinum was by FAR the better . Let's face it how many people sit and drink neat vodka ? Once you chuck tonic /coke etc into it whats the point of paying ridiculous prices for something you have no chance of telling the difference from stuff half the price.
Way overpriced! Absolute is much better & nearly half the price! & I tried Russian Standard last week & I actually think it's the best Vodka out there atm & that's on offer at Morrisons for £15L so I'd rather buy 2 of those ;)
Brockmans save 1.99 pay 5.95 postage: great deal!!!
I "luvs" gin x thanks
