Ten days of… cheap whisky

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Not the best choice if you're looking for cheap whiskyThe holiday season has arrived, everyone is trying to save some money in order to go on vacation. The financial crisis isn’t helping us either…

This is the time to look at some cheaper whisky (make that “more accessible” whisky), available for € 50 or less. I know there are good bottles to be found in this market segment.

It will be quite a random anti-crisis selection, we’ll have newly released Scotch single malts (both official bottlings and independent releases) but also Spanish and American whisky and a single grain. There’s even an uncommon brand of Japanese whisky that we haven’t tried before.

    I would call it rather affordable whisky ))
    Looking forward to Spanish one, I guess this is gonna be “DYC”.

    In the case of DYC, cheap is the perfect word ;-)
    You can buy a whole case for € 50…

  • george: i see you have tried st magdalene and say it is harder to find i am a collector of st magdalene and i have 40 bottles i am selling these date from 196
  • sjoerd972: I wish the guys at Bushmills would demand the labels to say "Northern Ireland" so we didn't have to speculate on the booze's origins.
