Day three of our fast paced run through the UK supermarkets and we have went a little upmarket to Sainsburys which is perhaps thought of as being one step below Waitrose in the snob stakes. For the previous outings see:

 

Glen Moray Classic Sherry Cask Finish

glen-moray-classic-sherry-cask-finish-whisky

  • Incredible value at £22
  • Any Glen Moray bottles are worth buying
  • This one is a stereotypical Christmas-y one

Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old

  • I think better than the MUCH more expensive 18
  • Try to get for around £35
  • Rich sherried influence and natural colour, good strength and non chill-filtration
  • A stable in many whisky cabinets

Glenfiddich IPA

  • A fruity one for a whisky and beer drinker
  • Good value if you can find for £40
  • Part of a 3 bottle limited edition collection including XX, Winter Storm and Fire & Cane

The Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky – Distiller’s Reserve

  • Japanese whisky is silly expensive now but this is still ok at £47
  • Cheaper than online retailers in Sainsburys just now
  • Makes a great gift purely on where it is from such is the way whisky has evolved.
  • Uses red wine, sherry and Mizunara casks
