For an old fashioned **** up?
Good price, if I didn't already have 4 bottles of bourbon I'd buy some.
Heat! Got a real soft spot for Woodford.
YES! Thank you! Can never have enough of this around.
great bourbon, great price!
super price heat added,love this stuff
Bought this yesterday good post and good price :). Also noticed Morissons have Monkey Shoulder for £22. Would post as a deal but in a rush
Monkey shoulder is utter tripe

Woodford reserve however has to be one of if not the best sub 50quid supermarket bourbons
Great drink for Autumn. Hot
I've just picked up a bottle, it occasionally comes on offer at this price.

Interesting..I got a bottle of EC as a present and have yet to try it and was going to get this WR to supplement my collection. Think I still will but good to know EC is highly rated.
Woodford reserve is lovely stuff. My go to bourbon!

Elijah Craig
Four Roses Small Batch
Knob Creek
Buffalo Trace
All of these are in supermarkets and in my opinion all beat Woodford for taste. And if you include Amazon products there's another 20 or so under £50 that beat Woodford (Blanton's, Willett, WL Weller, so many...)

Elijah Craig is in Waitrose and M&S
Four Roses Small Batch is in (some) Tesco
Knob Creek is in (most) Tesco
Almost forgot Eagle Rare is in Waitrose and also better than WR

​I'd say 4 Roses Small Batch is the best American Whiskey I've had, and I've had quite a few... Still amazed that you can pick it up in Tesco, really really worth checking out, especially when they (very occasionally) have it on offer.

Other than that, Buffalo Trace (everyday price £20, occasionally on offer at £17) is the real value in UK supermarkets.

Cheers think i,m going to try my local tescos- definitely fancy trying four roses small batch
I love a good old fashioned
had the knob creek, prefer WR tbh, buffalo trace is a close one tho
There's a few names there I shall try, I know my local Tesco has the four roses one.

Any others suggested under 30?

I've never seen Knob Creek in Tesco! The best place to buy Elijah Craig is M&S, it's a full £10 cheaper than it is on Amazon. Elijah is the best one I've tried so far, haven't managed to get hold of Knob Creek yet though...
Who would want to swim in knob creek? Are they more dangerous than pyranhas
Bulleit is £21 on amazon right now - I probably prefer WR but Bulleit isn't terrible either
don't bother with Wild Turkey 81 unless it's on sale for £15
Haven't tried all these but value for money wise Clarke's Bourbon from Aldi is very good.
Yeah, even though I had 4 bottles, (Rowan's Creek, Blantons single barrel, bullit and Knob creek) I still bought a bottle of this.

Also, for those who haven't tried Blantons, give it a try it's my favourite by far but can set you back about £40-£50 on Amazon.

same here I keep a bottle of WR around, it looks nice if nothing else, have about 25 bourbons on my shelf right now.
agree with you on Blantons and right now only £35 on amazon for the green label

it's very good stuff. I wouldn't put ice in mine but each to their own.
hopefully you got it for sub £30
If u can get the four roses Bourbon tesco are selling at the moment for £14 down from £29(do a self scan as my ticket still said £29 but scanned at £14) it represents much better value. I'm supping on it now, and it's nearly as good as Woodford, not quite, but I'd put it in my top three Bourbons along with Elijah Craig. Still this is an OK price, not as good as when it was reduced to £14 last year though, got told off by the Mrs for buying too many bottles!
Oh, tesco also had oban 14yr old for £24 a bottle, I might add, cheapest i have ever seen it. Tbh first time I have ever seen it reduced. Usually a firm £45-£50. Think it's been posted already.
