Tesco has a single Islay malt at an incredibly good price - has anyone tasted it? Any ideas as to what it is?
Ditto their Highland malt
Ps. Click the search button above and then enter Tesco and you will see various posts about supermarket whisky.
Other good UK supermarket own-label islays include Morrisons (formerly Safeway), Sainsburys and Asda which I have tried. Jim Murray's Whisky Bible highly rates the Sainsburys, which is the most expensive at £15.99 but still excellent value IMHO.
Asda price for the Islay Pure is currently at £12.78 (knocking £1 off after Tesco re-launched theirs) which is great value - bottled by Douglas Macniven. Apparently the Waitrose and Majestic own-label Islays are good as well, but I haven't tried (yet!) - Waitrose being very new to Edinburgh.
I'm fairly sure most of these supermarket islays are either Bowmore or Caol Ila - and as such very good value for the novice like me.
I say novice at whisky but perhaps I'm a bit of an expert at supermarket price wars! (BTW AsdaWalMart currently has Glenlivet 18yo on offer at half price of £17.48 for anyone interested )

Just found this out myself. First Asda had none left so I had to go to a second shop and bought the last one.
What a price for a great malt!
It was interesting to read above about the half-price 18-year old Glenlivet,
I don't remember that offer in the Asda stores in N.E. Scotland.
