All Scotch Whisky Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
Why are these being linked to whisky? Is someone deliberately linking them or is the system picking up Jura. It's properly getting on my wick now.
Great price for this bottle. I’ve got the 15 and the 105 but waiting on the 21 or 25 to drop
got a 25 year glenfarclas for about 90 imho not worth 55 for a 17 year aged
Nice whisky from a nice distillery....they had an albino deer resident in the grounds there when I briefly worked at Glenfarclas in 1982 ;)
Had almost the same experience (Xmas 3 years ago), I am quite sulphur tolerant but this was very strong. Had a couple of other bottles in the past with no problem but that put me off the 15, for a while anyway.
My 15 year old bottle had a sulpher taste. opening that after Xmas dinner was my biggest whisky disappointment. You could tell there was a good whisky there under it but the sulpher destroyed it. stray batch ? or have others had similar issues.
Aaah well, Asda and Morrisons got the description wrong on their website/app as 40% ABV. in fact, just the packaging has been changed, ABV is still 43%
Double Black is good, quite peaty. Blue is excellent but not sure it's worth £100+ though.
This is far nicer than any of these you’ve stated. The double black is also worth a try and again better than the original black and the red
really nice scotch and definitely worth this price. grabbed a bottle off amazon last time for this price. many say it's the best of Johnny Walker range.(and that blue, platinum,etc are just over price. I only tried red, black and green, red is just a mixer,black is great neat and green definitely superior.
Thanks for the confirmation (y) on another note, it looks like 43% ABV version is being replaced by 40% ABV version though
Trolling on a deals site, how sad.
Finding Dory is more entertaining than I remember. ;)
Another clueless muppet :D Well this one for example - currently my favourite dram and I've got about 30 to choose from (mostly single malts). https://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/p/37968/jp-wisers-18-year-old
Lol. A "decent" blend. WHat's one of those? :D
Had the Standard 17 , which i was not blown away by on first opening but really enjoyed more and more the further i went down the bottle. whats the difference with this one?
I know you didn't, just having a bit of banter. Totally agree re: the cheese and sausages too. (highfive)
I didn't suggest anywhere that either of the brands mentioned were what I would consider quality. Quantity and quality aren't interchangeable. Look at Richmond sausages and Cathedral City cheese. Both described as the nation's favourite, and both cr4p.
;) I take your point re: marketing but selling bucketloads doesn't equate to quality. (cheeky)
Tried four stores and non have even heard of this deal.
Yes, but only after you have had a few down (embarrassed) (angel)
YTD count =16 then. I will be sure to add this info again when this next gets posted (sometime in the next 2 weeks i suspect).
This has been posted 16 times in less than a year. Why would you stock up on something when it can virtually always be had at this price or less? Not worth £25 IMO, especially when you have Old Pultney 12 and Strathisla 12 often in this price bracket or less.
If you know anyone going to Spain, ask them to pick you up a bottle of the 12yo, it works out about that same price as the gold reserve and is readily available there 👌
The_Bounty_Bear: WARNING -...This is a Cardhu Gold deal police alert. The posting of a £25 deal for Cardhu Gold will alert the Cardhu Deal police because. It's nearly ALWAYS £25 somewhere. It has a artificially high RRP that makes £25 seem like a huge discount. It has numerous postings on this site in which comments will tell you it's worth £25. Please search the word Cardhu to see how often this gets posted at £25
Sorry, had to vote cold for how recently this has been much lower as BritishDragon said. This looks a pretty standard price to me..
I'll just wait for this or the Quarter cask at between £25-£28. Comes around every year or two, then I stock up in a big way. Just avoid the Select. It's drinkable, but not a patch on the 10 or Quarter
used to be £25 on a regular basis but has been £28 quite recently. sorry cold
Fair price for this. The price of whisky these days though! Just goes up and up (flirt)
Not if you follow my instructions on the description
Yes - sure is!
Does anyone know if this is in-store as well please guys?
Not in England it aint No bugger wants to accept it. Even the banks question you constantly about where you get it
"That's a pity because I've got good Scottish money, it's very strong right now the currency - it's £1 to the pound."
Scottish money off tesco vouchers work on alcohol down south as well.(can't use them for alcohol up here)
thanks for the post. ordered and arrived.
Those 2 are very much entry level single malts. I'd definitely recommend spending about a fiver more to get a Highland Park 12, Old Pulteney 12 or Aberlour 12 (or even this Strathisla deal). The difference in quality is significant.
I think the Glenlivet Founders Reserve is very easy to drink, Auchentoshan American Wood is the easier to drink.
No connoisseur but I got this last time it was on offer. Just finished that bottle in fact. Delicious and far easier to drink than recent non-aged purchases of similar price (see pics). Perhaps I'll try with water this time to qualify those poetic tasting notes...
ditto. I never read tasting notes. only matters what you taste yourself IMO.
I buy this at Christmas from Tesco, always £25, my mum loves it
Decent price. Sometimes comes down to £25 on Amazon, but hasn't for a while. Probably cheapest at the moment!
Peaty and tasty
One of my faves this, i remember about 2 years ago it was being sold off cheap as at the time there were murmurs of it being discontinued in favour off their nas offerings, i remember snagging about 4 bottles at 19 quid each. Might be dearer now (as whisky is really fashionable these days) but im just glad its still around, heat from me <3 (y)
Two's not greedy. ;)
Ok, is this the one that has been voted one of the best whiskies in the world by Jim Murray every year.
Heat for the reduction. They're doing jack Daniels rye for £24 at moment and I prefer that, but I've no proof so can't post
It's nice, personally I like all of the dufftown range, you can't go past their 12yo though (y)
I heard the no age Ines are where they have blended different aged whiskeys from different casks. So could be a mix of a 20, a 15, a 12, a 6 and a splash of 3 to brighten it up. Legally if they were to display the age it would have to be the youngest (minimum 3), so instead the blended whiskeys tend to have no age statement
Got a bottle of this sat I. The kitchen, far too smokey for my taste, seemed burnt but voted hot as this is a great price
Now expired, good find though.
It has to be at least 3 years old to be called scotch whisky, not just whisky.
indeed but its been a while since the 10 has been £25-£26. i purchased a bottle of this at £18 on clearance. it's okay (and not as bad as some think to me) but the 10 is much superior . spend the few quid extra and get either Quarter Cask or the 10. Just know what your buying though. Laphroiag's are one of the most peaty/smokey whiskies you can get. You will have a marmite type situation.
I completely agree. The 10yr is often around £28 to £30.
Pretty poor in comparison to the 10YO and Quarter Cask. The quarter cask is often reduced (had it for £26.90 recently) and IMO is in a different league to this.
Same price at Amazon for those who don't have a Tesco nearby. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Laphroaig-Select-Single-Scotch-Whisky/dp/B00KF56G4E
You mean not available to the people voting. Cos it was obviously available to the OP and anybody else who can get to that store.
It’s getting voted down because it’s not available at this price.
Since it's re-release it has dropped to £30 at Morrisons a few times. You are getting a lot of whisky for your money @ £30. Really good stuff. Good deal !!
Yeah, I'm not sure if people are just comparing this to Johnnie Walker Red prices or just voting down whisky over £20, or if this is genuinely a bad deal but I've not seen it cheaper for a long time.
How on earth is this cold? It's absolutely delicious.
15 to 20 is a 33% hike 8)
I think you mean the 13 year old version? I got a few bottles too on the same Amazon deal....cant say I like the normal version but the 13 is pretty decent at least for that price
Thanks, will get myself a bottle.
I have few bottles of the 10 year old version of this. They were £15 on Amazon last Christmas so i got a few .They used to serve these cheaper ones on the now closed Kingfisher airlines when i went to India many years ago.
Ugh, sorry but I can't stand this one. I find it tastes chemical. Glad if you like it though.
Fair enough, I’ve yet to try anything from Jura.
Jura's entry level brands hardly set the world alight and £50 could buy something a lot more special
Why is this so cold?
Haven't had this particular dram but seems like a good price for 18yo. Not sure why this is in the fridge?
Good price for this. Heat added.
This whisky is almost perpetually £21-£22 at either Tesco or Asda, in fact it's currently £21 at tesco and £22 at Asda, so you do not need to be a member of the Amazon Prime private club to enjoy this deal. It's a nice whisky that I would argue is one of the best you can get regularly for under £23, but as I type Old Pulteney 12yr is also £22 at Tesco and I would argue that's the better buy at the price point. American Oak is more vanilla/coconut sweetness, very simple, pleasant. Old Pulteney is like salted toffee and butterscotch with a really briney aftertaste, more complex and rounded than the American Oak.
£27.99 (21 + 6.99) if you are not a member of the Amazon Prime private club.
I'm waiting for @sam_of_london to come along again and say she likes Scotch better.
Good price, Got a bottle same price in Tesco . For thoese not on Amazon prime.
Great price and great find! Thanks OP! (highfive)
I prefer "island" whiskies, tried Bowmore no. 1 but found it kind of odd. Can anyone tell me whether the 12 is very different, ie better, please? Make my mind up for me (y)
A very enjoyable malt at a good price.
Thanks Op this is a very drinkable malt one of my faves! (y) From the Master of Malt site; Classic stuff and the heart of the Bowmore range. Smoky, fruity, coastal, delicious
