Bargain alert: Jack Daniels Single Barrel is reduced from £45 to £25 at Tesco (until 17th June). And the regular JD 1-litre bottle is only £20 instead of £32.

Stocked up on this a few nights ago for my wedding bar :datass:


Jack Daniels seems to be getting reduced everywhere though, what’s going on?

Got a bottle of Laphroaig off the back of our wedding anniversary party. Last time I tasted it was 15 years ago when I bought a bottle for an ex and I strawberry floating hated it. Popped it open last night and...really enjoyed it. I didn't think I'd like the super peatiness of it but it was actually a lot smoother than I remember, even if the aftertaste does stick around like an unwanted housemate.

Pretty, pretty good.

Just finished off my current bottle of whisky so I’m looking for a new one, how did people find the vanilla flavoured whisky? I love the sound of it so to those who’ve tried it which would you recommend?

I can't help you with a specific vanilla-related-recommendation, but I got a bottle of Monkey Shoulder for Father's Day and it's a lovely Speyside :datass:

I'm going to treat myself to another bottle for my collection when I get paid - thinking of getting some Woodford Reserve as I'm keen to try a proper bourbon, anyone else had it?

I’ve had a few bottles of Monkey Shoulder over the years, it is a lovely drink, it’s probably my go to bottle when I don’t know what to buy.

I’ve just had a couple of bottles from Glenmorangie, I enjoyed it but fancied something a little different this time, hence why I asked about the vanilla flavoured ones as I thought they sounded nice and something different. I’ve seen a Jim Bean vanilla one so might just try that.

Try Eagle Rare bourbon if you want something different. Very smooth. It coats the inside of your mouth like butter.

I don’t like the sound of that. When a whisky has a subtle vanilla-like hint to it, it can be wonderful, but adding vanilla flavouring seems coarse.

I had a bottle a few years ago. Unfortunately I found it slightly disappointing. Maybe it was because I was expecting it to be great, and it was just a bit... ordinary.

Oh is that what the Jim Bean one is like? I was hoping it’d just be a subtle taste/hint of vanilla, nothing over the top.

I haven’t tried it, so it might be fine.

Managed to pick up a bottle of Ardbeg Uigeadail from Amazon as a fairly decent price.

Have to say I'd recommend it.
