I noticed my local Tesco are now selling quite a few 18 year old malts now including Highland Park 18. Unfortunately they are selling the HP18 for £59.99 so it is still cheaper to buy it online including postage costs.
McKay i also noticed my local Tesco was now selling Highland Park 18 and was also disappointed with the £59.99 price tag. It would be nice if they where to take 20% off this price before Christmas like they have with many of there other malts.
I see both Tesco and Asda have the Glenfiddich 12 year old for £16. The other bottlings from Glenfiddich also have good reductions.
Unusual to see such reductions on Glenfiddich, i guess some of the other malt whisky brands are starting to get noticed by the general public and are eating into Glenfiddichs market share forcing them to reduce prices.
Any price reductions are all good for us, whatever the reason.
Depending where you live, most Malts are below £20 in Elgin last week, both in Asda & Tesco.
However I spoke to Robert Fleming of Tomintoul Distillery last week whilst visiting the area and he said that it's very bad that those big supermarkets, who buy drinks on a large scale, drop the prices so much.
Small companies other than the big 3, Diageo, Pernot-Ricard and W.Grants feel the pinch during the Festive Season .
I was in my local Tesco yesterday and most of the offers available over the Christmas period have disappeared but there are still a few good deals to be had most notably the Ardbeg Ten is just over £19 and the offer is set to run untilthe end of January. Also noticed the Old Pulteney on offer about £18 i think.
Rene i can see how smaller companies like Tomintoul struggle to get a fare share of the market at Christmas when the supermarkets slash the prices of the big brands so much.
