Speyside 28yo Single Malt - £39.99;
Cognac 1989 26yo (Grande Chanmpagne) - £29.99;
Armagnac 1975 - £24.99.

There's also a beautifully presented 40yo Tawny Port.

I've already picked up the 28yo single malt (believe it to be a Mortlach), the 1989 Cognac and got a 40yo tawny Port from last year still. Had the 30yo tawny a few years back and it was incredible.

The one I've passed on this year is the Armagnac. 2 years ago they did a 1973 vintage and I found it a bit irrelevant. This year's looks much darker and may be a different parcel of eau de vie but I've already spent too much on other stuff (Lidl whiskies too).

I saw it today and it does look really tempting and darker in colour. AFAIK you can't add colour to Armagnac, but you can with cognac and brandy. It did look good. I'm going to hold fire for a couple of weeks and wait to see if funds allow me to go side by side with the version released 2 years ago. I have to say that whilst it wasn't the best spirit I've had, I did like the change up and it compared well to a Laubade XO I had open at the time. Fairly one dimensional, but at half the price of the XO I couldn't grumble.

Got a few of the 28yo Glen Marnoch's as well as the 40yo Port & the Cognac.

Looking forward to cracking them open over Christmas and hogmanay

We are talking bargains and for £19.99 the glen marnoch 12 is in my view a defo bargain.
