Bargain hunt #2

I started searching all of the UK supermarkets such as ASDA, Morrison, Tesco and Sainsbury’s particularly using their online grocery shopping websites to compare list prices and offers. Again with a price range of £20 to £25 maximum I picked up the following:

Talisker 10 year old Island single malt scotch whisky [Diageo]

Talisker 10YO

Dalwhinnie 15 year old Highland single malt scotch whisky [Diageo]

Singleton of Dufftown 12 year old single malt scotch whisky [Diageo]


Cragganmore 12 year old speyside single malt scotch whisky [Diageo]


Laphroaig 10 year old Islay single malt scotch whisky [http://www.laphroaig.com/]


Tobermory 10 year old Island single malt scotch whisky

Having cut my teeth on a basic range of scotch malt whiskies I inadvertently [due to the offers available] acquired a fair portion of the Diageo range of classic malts. Of these the Cragganmore [light and floral], Singleton [malty] and Talisker [smoky and salty] disappeared very very quickly and I would snap them up again if there were not so many other distilleries & whiskies out there waiting to be tried.

  1. I have to agree, these are solid malts (note: I have not tried the Singleton). Prices in the U.S. are pretty high right now, though, leaving the Laphroaig and Talisker as the best value for your money over here (in my opinion).
