Found Talisker Storm for 34.99 at Binny's in Chicago. It sells for $90 here in Ontario, so relative to my local price it was a steal.

Bottle of Parker's 13 yr old wheat for £66.49 in October from a provisional store. Spotted it at the back of the shelf. Guy knew it was worth way more but as it was priced said he had to sell it to me!

@mscottydunc That is a fantastic price! I wish I could pick up a bottle for that. In my area it is $63.59

@MuddyFunster that is an amazing find. I can't believe it has sat of the shelf that long. I had a bottle of the higher ABV version at 68.7%. Do let us know what you think!

@Nozinan I very much enjoyed my taste of the Lagavulin 12yo CS 2015. I certainly hope to pick up a bottle before it all disappears from shelves. I had to pass on on a bottle while I was on vacation (my whisky budget and my available trunk space were both maxed). My main motivation is that I still have an unopened bottle of Lagavulin 12yo CS from 2003. I would love to open it along side the 2015 batch. I would love to compare what they were bottling in 2003 alongside the spirit they were distilling at the same time.

@MuddyFunster Parker Beam may be smiling down on this Steal of a Deal transaction.

Funny to read the posting from 5 years ago. You can see what happened with the prices of good whisky. I felt it was time to take advantage of the Brexit and the devaluation of the pound. I ordered 3 bottles of Talisker 18 in the UK for € 82,- a bottle. Free shipping within 3 days! That's a 25% discount, in my region you can't find a Talisker 18 for under € 100,-.


A tip for other European (some ship overseas) costumers on Connosr: this dutch site, www.whiskyprijzen.com helps me a lot in finding 'Steal of a deals'.

@DutchGaelisch try whiskysite.nl currently got an offer on Glen Garioch 15 Renaissance at €70, HP18 at 90 and PC12 at 100 I would need to put a decent order in to make shipping worthwhile to U.K. And a little short on whisky tokens after Xmas. Shipping inside Netherlands is only €6.95 no matter how many bottles ordered.

I was buying all my bourbon from a different site in the Netherlands but prices have started to balance by the time shipping to U.K. is taken into account and the poor exchange rate. Bad luck for me good luck for Scotch lovers on the continent. :-(

Fine purchase of the Talisker 18 the one advantage of living in U.K. At the moment is that the Scotch pricing has not changed, fingers crossed Sturgeon does not manage to split the nation. I really will feel depressed if I have to pay import duty on Scotch.

@Pete1969 Whiskysite is great, I bought 3 bottles of HP 18 for € 62,- a bottle. This was in 2014, 2 bottles of them are still unopened in my 'stock'.

@Dreambuie , $45 is the best price I ever see for Ardbeg Ten in the US. Usually, I see it around $55.

I'm not sure this is fully in the spirit of this thread, but I just grabbed a couple of bottles of Gooderham & Worts, which is on sale for $35 at the LCBO. That's 22% off regular price, which is about as good a sale as you'll see from the LCBO on a non-discontinued product. The sale ends on January 25th, so any G&W fans in Ontario reading this may want to strike while the iron is hot.

@Nelom I don't mind it, and I love a good deal, but the bottle I bought when it was first released (in 2014?) is still over 2/3 full, so unless someone needs me to pick some up for them (which I would do), I will pass.

Ardbeg Ten "reduced to clear" (why?!) in Tesco tonight, down to £23.50. Sorely tempted as that is surely a steal, but it isn't my favourite type of whisky. This year I'm trying to look beyond bagging a bargain for a bargain's sake. Walked away empty handed but glad to have saved the pennies for something less of a steal, but more to my taste.

Bottle of Tesco's "Finest" 12 year old Speyside ...down to £13. Rumoured to be Tamnavulin. I couldn't leave it on the shelf at that price, despite my last post.

Contrary to my most recent posts in this thread, I try not to buy my whisky from Tesco.

Great price for the Talisker DE 2005 @Pete1969 . Where did you pick that up from?

Tesco have knocked a tenner off to £42 and had a booklet of vouchers on doorstep when got back off holiday. Spend £40 and get £8 off, even the wife couldn't stop me buying a bottle for £34. It is worth getting a Tesco club card just for the vouchers you get occasionally, I don't shop there regularly but top up spirits from there usually rum offers for mixing but the whisky selection is Ok.

Got another voucher for next week and the DE will still be on offer but tempted to get Caol Ila 12 for £30 and Jim Beam white for £13 will knock it down to £35 for the 2 bottles. Need a cheap mixing bourbon after my holiday the drinks at the hotel were poor and the wife ended up drinking the bottle of Woodford Double Oak I bought at airport (with Coke) and has decided she likes it, I do love her but she is not getting into my bourbon collection if she wants Coke with it.

I wouldn't let her have the Glenfiddich Distillers I had bought with Coke so have returned with that intact.

The current edition Johnnie Walker Green Label 15 Year Old for AUD $57 (USD $43.75) a 700ml bottle, not a bad price for a good, honest pure malt blend in my opinion.

That's pretty good, thanks for the heads-up
