    On offer in my local (small) Co-op for £15.50. Irresistable and a nice drop IMHO.

    Is this one of the whisky of the month offers? Mine has litre bottles of a reasonable Speyside on offer occasionally reduced from £25 to £15.

    Yes, it's their 'Malt of the Month'. It was Glenfiddich last month but Aberlour is a regular offer.

    Aberlour also happens to be a fairly well established Substance Misuse Treatment organisation north o' the border Rich. I'm beginning to smell a rat!

    I picked up the 12 year old Aberlour in France for about £17. It's one of my favourite. Sainsbury's also has 14yr old Scapa (Orkney Islands) for £19.99 at the moment, a great one. I love Whisky.

    Aldi, Highland Earl blended Scotch, 7.49 a bottle. Arrrrrgh burp.

    I suppose when you're nailed it all tastes exactly the same.

    It's amazing what you can get used to when you're desperate. When I first tried to give up smoking I substituted sucking on a ciggie for tugging on a whisky bottle. Got quite addicted to 'Claymore' which was the cheapest scotch I could grab. Rough as old boots, but I grew to quite like it before realising I was doing myself more harm with spirits than I had been with tobacco and started smoking again. In fact I was quite disappointed with the vacuous silky kiss of Jameson's ( my previous tipple of choice ) when I went back to it.

    I picked up a bottle of "Glen McWilliams" in Andorra a few years back for the princely sum of £1.75!
    I bought it for my pal - we make a point of buying each other a bottle of the roughest, cheapest spirit that we can find every time we go on holiday!

    As you could guess, it tastes like white spirit!
