All Whisky Discounts, Offers and Sale - March 2019
Love this stuff - 2 bought. Thanks OP
I agree. I've bought this for 25 at amazon last time myself. I've also took advantage of tesco 25 + off vouchers some time ago. But amazon lightning deals are for 1 item only. I'd rather pay 30 and sip, rather than have a bottle of regular JD.
Has been cheaper but as good a price as you’ll find at the moment
I love you hic
I know bourbon is technically whiskey but doesn't taste anything like any whisky spelling itself "whisky" that I've ever tried nor anything like any Irish whiskey I've ever tasted, which is what i was getting at but didn't necessarily convey with my choice of words.
While I'm not going to argue about the liqueur mixed bourbons (they have their place but not pure whiskey) I'd like to know how you came to the conclusion that bourbon isn't whiskey? The distillation process is much the same as scotch or Irish and it just represents one of the subsets of whiskey as a whole (Scotch, Irish, Bourbon, Rye, Japanese etc.).
This is still £23/litre and bourbon really isn't whisky or Irish whiskey. This is bourbon but the American's want to call it whiskey for the worldwide appeal. The honey thing is undrinkable - there isn't a mixer that can save it and it's far too sweet to drink neat or over ice. I'll try & drown the rest of my bottle in cocktails. Don't get me wrong - I like a JD and coke but there's nothing premium about it and I would suggest there is similar/better for cheaper for drinking at home - there are regular offers on Bells, various decent spiced rums (e.g. Morgan's, Bacardi Oakheart) for £16/litre, Lamb's Navy rum for £18/litre, really decent Lidl/Aldi whiskys that are good enough be drank with a splash of water or over ice for a bit more. Or spend a bit more on a decent Scotch or aged rum that will knock spots off this. It may be a good price for JD but that doesn't necessarily make it money well spent - you are paying a premium for a big brand and there is a lot more out there.
Your best bet is to go onto youtube and just type it in, many many reviews for both and suggestions on how to drink it etc.
Surely the only reason to decant Whisky is so your guests don't know you're a cheap-arse? Tesco value looks the same a a 30yr Single Malt :D
Well a decanter probably won't seal as well as a cork in a bottle, especially a cheap decanter like the one in this bargain, so that could have played a part in the whisky tasting worse. It depends on how long they left the whisky in the decanter for of course. There's only one practical use for a whisky decanter: Once you've drank half a 700ml bottle, pour it into a 350ml decanter and you reduce the flavour loss due to oxidation - provided you finish it off within a few months (because of the weaker seal on the decanter). Thre problem is that 350ml whisky decanters are rarer than moon dust!
I'm with you. But reading a few tasting notes recently, and a few have stated the first tasting was dramatically different/worse to when coming back a few days later (coincidently on Asian whiskies). I wonder if decanting accelerates the process
I never understood why anybody would decant a bottle of whisky.
Funnily enough, I was going to post this tonight. It's been that price for a week, well worth it. I picked one up at the whisky festival last November after tasting it. No brainer for that price.
I like sherry finished whiskies and at £27 for a normally £40+ whisky i thought i would give it a try.
It's a NAS, but probably a good one by all accounts. The Sauternes Finish is £30 in Sainsbury's.
Grouse is a very decent blended whisky drunk by millions.
I'm guessing you clean your toilet with it? Must be very expensive! ;)
Harsh stuff for cleaning the toilet
It’s lovely. My favourite blend and quite cheap... Beats many £25 single malts
This is on of the few blended whiskys I like and this is a good price. Heat!
This is a blend but a blended malt so no grain whiskies in it. £19 for a blended malt is a cracking price even if it is often reduced. For that reason it should be voted hot.
James says it’s always this price so voting cold
Nice malt and a good price. My only criticism is that as a representative of "island" character, it is a little too peaty, but if one can make peace with that it is a hell of a time
Curse you - posting interesting sounding whisky for me to try. Just hope it's delivered when I'm in and the missus is out. ;)
Also on offer at MOM https://www.masterofmalt.com/whiskies/douglas-laing/rock-oyster-whisky/?srh=1
CCC back up appears to have been around £35 for most of this year, so a decent saving :)
New link as the original now takes you to another seller https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B00SYPX528/ref=mw_dp_olp?ie=UTF8&condition=new
I like my whisky with coke....now I wait.
Harry Nilsson. 8)
Yeah. Who needs a flippin glass? ;) (highfive)
You put the lime in the coconut
Hang on....where's the whiskey?
The fact of the matter is that this is a very decent price if Auchentoshan suits you. It's a brand name amongst but slightly above the "own brand" names, and it seems to have survived since 1823?
£20 in ASDA too. It's alright, nowt special.
Pay a few ££ more and get an age statement malt.
You’re right. I saw it at tidydeals.com this very morning. Did you post it there?
I'm happy if it helped someone. Please remind us how many deals have you posted in the last 2-3 months? Aaaa... none. You just like to go around commenting on people's deal's that are not good enough. Go on and post a HOT deal ffs.
Probably the P&P putting people off, seems like it would be worth a go at £22 in-store though.
:))) any reason why is cold . Is it cheaper somewhere else? Let us know. Thx
Yep - me too. Ideal, just in time for the weekend.
Spot on! I just got this update from Amazon. We are pleased to report that the following item will dispatch sooner than expected: "Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old Whisky 70 cl" Previous estimated arrival date: April 06 2019 - April 24 2019 New estimated arrival date: March 29 2019
What he said. Great whisky - really interesting and not too peaty. £30 is good value for me. I've a bottle open and one on the way from Amazon at the same price.
£150....nice investment. Managed to get a Glenfarclas 25 for £85 back in November.
it was £150 on lightning deal....the prices now are insane.
Seems a very good price - and early reviews are positive. Probably not one for me, given the smokiness - but I'm sure Islay fans will like it. I'll probably look more towards the Sea Cask (Speyside) rather than the Land Cask version. Sea Cask version (also £20) is here: https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/301869306
Decent, this is (y)
Brilliant, thanks. For some reason it was only coming up at £36 for Pantry for me. Ordered at £30 now. Cheers!
There isn't a finer whisky for the price. If there is, please let me know
amazon.co.uk/dp/B004EY1T4E?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE Edited to add need prime
Can't see it lower than £36. Can you give me a link please?
£30 on amazon Edited to add 1-2 month wait, but I can wait 😁
22 I think, it's a good dram at the price.
What’s the usual price?
surpisingly good whisky
Not in Chester ;(
Most unlikely! Will check tomorrow as it's my fave every day tipple. Heat added.
I need this in my life
Not my type of whisky but this is a good £10-15 less than other places. Good price
By once, do you mean right now at this very moment and in quantities large?
tasted their signature cocktail at the airport last year https://www.elitetraveler.com/features/cocktail-week-copper-dog-whisky-apple-dog
I really like this. Better than a lot of single malts
I had. Glass of this once, but I knocked it over, there was a poodle all over the floor😁
Not seen this sub £20 b4. Good share op
Very good price. Heat!
