Nah you can get them for a tenner. Why is Bells the most popular blend in UK though? Crazy. Give me a Grouse any day.
At least the Glenlivet is in an ordinary cardboard box and not the chav leatherette offering I saw in Asda yesterday Actually I must buy one of those as well

Talisker 10 at £20
Laphroiag CS at £25
Glenlivet 18 at £27
HP 12 at £20
Macallan FO 10 at £20
Ardbeg 10 at £22
All prices rounded to the nearest quid so I don't appear too sad
Bought a Talisker, a couple of Laphroiag CS and a Glenlivet 18. I suppose I'll go back to stock up on a couple after looking round at the other local offerings.
Has anyone seen the vile box they've put the Glenlivet 12 in now? All it needs is a bit of Burberry check.....
You people are soooo lucky to be able to walk into a shop and just buy a bottle of Laphroaig Cask Strength without worrying about borders, international flights and grumpy customs officers.

Especially as the shop in question is part of the Walmart group!
Supermarkets here compete like mad with each other so most of the time there are deals to be had. I'll have to go back for some Ardbeg 10, having seen the prices elsewhere.

But Lawrence, look at what we have! 1)Long cold winters with short days, 2)short summers with mosquitos, blackflies, deerflies, horseflies and no-see-ums; 3)hockey damn near all year long (see 1); 4) the longest undefended border in the world; 5)... which allows Mr Tattieheid to come and go whenever he wants
So, being able to wander into Sainsbury's (or whoever) for a LQC just pales in comparison, does it not?

Loch Fyne Whiskies http://www.lwf.co.uk
They are a brilliant shop and mail order business specializing in Scotch whisky. We have been talking about some of the comments made by the owener, Richard Joynson, in another thread.

Some good deals at Waitrose http://www.waitrosewine.com and free delivery too.
Abelour A'bunadh £25
Caol Ila 18 yo £32
Talisker 18 yo £34
stand out for me.
A'bunadh at £25 and Laphroaig 10 yo cask strength for £25 at Tesco are the best "bang for your buck" malts available in the UK right now IMHO.

Does anyone remember how much Ardbeg Very Young cost when it was in the shops?
About £28 IIRC

I've been looking for it, but have been unable to find it?
seen it in a shop in glasgow, dont ask me street name or that as it all weegieland to me. although it was central and one of those "ethnic minority" shops. (couldnt think of a correct way to describe them there)
Didn't find 'The Whisky Shop' Inverness, but only had an hour in the centre, Where abouts is it??
