I tried to sort delivery, during initial lockdown, as local shops were refusing. They refused also, but, that doesn't stop me from trying again. Should I try store with best offers, or one closest to ferry?
Do Drop Store deliver to the Isles for £12? As we get free delivery, I have been using them (as have extended family) for the likes of Vodka and Gin and they have Ron Centenario Rum (not Zacapa) that I have had a bottle of and ordered more. They actually have an offer on it for the 7 and 9 as a two bottle bundle. A bit of a mystery is the brand these days but going on taste the 7 and 9 were a hit. (y)
Sadly, I'm on Western Isles, directly between Lewis & Harris nowadays :( So, MUP is an issue, but no Asda/Lidl/Aldi/Sainsbury's ... Only a large Tesco Metro, & slightly larger Co-op. It's madness. The Tesco & Co-op here, are right at the top end for profits, in the country,& Aldi/Lidl utterly ignore us.
I have a bottle of Rumbullion from Xmas I am yet to try. It's worth a look if near an Asda because each store seems to have different deals, although a lot of deals reported are the same in different stores. I was chuffed to get 5 bottles of Woods Old Navy which down south away from MUP would be dirt cheap.
Though the paper covered gin was Rumbullion for a moment! Got soooo excited.
Never miss a 'Bourbon' deal again!

Just been to 3 asda no good, asda merry hill, asda Brierley hill and asda Dudley..
It is fairly random what is reduced and what isn't. Pulling together reports from friends and family. I think Woods Navy rum is reduced everywhere because they are not going to stock it anymore. Jameson Stout whisky seems to be reduced pretty much everywhere. A lot of JD and Jim Beam bourbons reduced in various stores. Couple of flavoured gins such as the slipsmith lemon drizzle , Witley, etc, reduced in many stores. Few other spirits such as Courvoisier. Then there are some more limited crazy deals. There was a big empty space in my nearest Asda where Johnnie Walker Green label had been reduced to to the minimum allowed in Scotland. That's a little over £15 for a whisky that is normally around £40. Even with minimum pricing, someone got the deal of the year there! So if your local has JW Green Label at full price right now, bring a sleeping bag and camp out in front of it - there is a good chance it will get reduced to a silly price.
Noice, shame tese wouldn't be available in Scotland due to min pricing
Went to the smallish Bristol filton ASDA, crazy amount of these 'special price' deals, came away a happy man. Went to the massive ASDA at long well green and very few deals, possibly more in the small ASDA as they needed to clear more space? Worth checking the wine, beer, and port too, picked up some Cockburn's lbv 2015 for £3.98 (lol) . Their own brand cola cube gin was reduced in both stores to a tenner though and there were loads left.
nearly every deal on this site is instore only these days . so pot luck
Just popped to Benton Asda for a bottle.... I don’t even like the stuff hahaha. Good deal!
It’s just luck as to what you might find (if anything) in your local branch. I had gone in hoping to get the Jack Daniels Rye that some people have found but it was still full price, but I thought that this might well be worth trying at less than £10.
Same at the Woodchurch store today. (y) Picked up one for my son and mentioned it to a couple who were looking at whiskies in the usual spirits section - they decided to get 2 bottles! :) Also, Jameson Stout Edition @ £10.74, the green labelled IPA was next to it but at a higher price (although I didn't scan it to verify)
I don’t agree. Not sure what “ generic Lidl” bourbon tastes like, but the bourbon makes a huge difference to a Manhattan, particularly as it makes up two-thirds of the drink. Otherwise, why spend best part of £30 for a top vermouth and £8 for the best cherries to mix them with any old tat? I have tried making Manhattans with a variety of vermouths and bourbons, and this particular combo is one of my favourites, although Bulleit edges it for me.
Might as well buy generic LIDL stuff if you're gonna do that to be honest.
Sounds like a great plan.
101 is better. The equivalent is MM46.
I’ve never tried this but it’s been on my list for a while. I really like WT 101. Is this comparable in any way?
Same price in Scotland - quite a lot of discounted spirits sitting along side this. Whitley Neill Gin also £15.05 so presumably £13.50 outside of Scotland and Wales. Flor de Cana 5 Year Old Black Label Rum was £14.75, which is above minimum-pricing so possibly the same price nationally. Too many to remember. Worth a look if your are passing a co-op.
Shelf edge label in York shop was full price but scanned at £13.50. Thanks OP.
Picked up a few here in south Wales. £15.05 due to minimum pricing-which is still a stonking deal!..
This is 1L so not bad if you like JB (not a fan personally) but feel obligated to mention that Buffalo Trace (75cl) is £18 delivered on Amazon or £16.25 via Subscribe & Save (you can cancel it as soon as it arrives or set it for say, once every six months). Buffalo Trace (75cl) on Amazon
Personally I prefer this to Bulleit but both very good
It very literally is watered down. The Buffalo Trace we get in the UK is only 40%. Which, as most bourbon enthusiasts know, is weak and taste-destroying. It may seem insignificant by mere math, but even a 43% or 45% bourbon tends to have so much more character than a 40% bourbon like your standard Jack/Jim or this Buffalo Trace. I'm not saying this is a bad deal, though. It's ok. But it's only ok. I always prefer spending a few more quid on a stronger bourbon when possible. That said, this is still infinitely preferable to Jack or Jim, which are just genuinely bad and harsh and the sort of liquors that make people hate liquor.
Love this stuff, much prefer it to bulleit (the rye isn't bad though) and wild turkey. Even makers mark to be honest
Went for this since Bulleit is oos, some say it's better & others say this is
Like a bit of this, am new to bourbon but my fave so far was knob creek.
THANKS A MIL for submitting this deal (highfive) worth going to have a look they seem to have quite a few spirits discounted aswell. Jack Daniels 70cl - £14 Jameson Black Barrel 70cl - £17.25 Brooklyn Gin 70cl - £20 Sipsmith Sloe GIn 50cl - £12.50 Slingsby Rhubarb Gin 70cl - £20 just to name a few...!
Oops Blackheath Standard
Available @£17.00 Sainsbury's Blackheart Standard
Just picked up this and the monkey shoulder in Manchester - full price on shelf - scanned at the half price - happy days
Has anyone else not received it yet? It's our of stock on Amazon and I am left thinking if I should cancel my order.
Or just Rebel as it has now been rebranded, the standard release is bang average (This is a wheat based bourbon like Weller or Maker's Mark). It will be interesting to see what occurs with the Brand now that the parent (Luxco) has been purchased by MGP, we might see some decent MGP juice at a decent price under the Rebel label.
Not had it for years and years but I recall Rebel Yell being good. Must get a bottle. I think it was the 90’s last I had it though..
You might get a little more from Bulleit, slightly higher proof point and rye content.
