That's the best price I've ever seen for HP 12.
If only our favourite specialist dealers could get the same deals as the supermarkets.....
Best I've seen too. All about buying power I guess, and it's hard for anyone to compete with Tesco in that department.

Glenmorangie 15 is the bargain of the moment though at Asda or Tesco. It is worth the usual £30 but at £23 or £24 it is ridiculously good.
JW Green for those who like that kind of thing, £20 in Asda (I bought one in December). Chivas Regal £16.50ish in Asda.
Also got a Glen Moray (12yo finished in chenin blanc casks) for £11.99, the 1L NAS was also on offer. This stuff looks like it has been kicking around a warehouse for some time and the bottling code suggests as such.
I now don't buy a standard malt until it's on offer at the supermarket!
They have also discounted the JMR Peaty, Spice and Smooth etc down to £11.99.
So if you believe another thread they are actually giving you one penny to take it off them!! And no I don't work for HM customs.
They also had Auchentoshan 10yo or Select at half-price but out of stock.
One Bush and two Buff was scooped by me to widen my international selection.
I'm really starting to appreciate decent bourbons like Elijah Craig and Buffalo Trace. Also some Black Bush has gotten me into the smooth but spicy Irish sherried stuff hence me going for the Bushmills 16.
Again Black Bush was a few quid off at Sainsbury's as well. Must be specials with St Paddys day now only a few weeks away.

Also they are raising the tax on alcohol here
Good thing germany is close enough to justify the petrol costs of a trip.
Drammer, very soon you will see many more countries increasing duty on alcohol - thanks to the EU's new "minimum duty" legislation.
