Aberlour 18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 500ml $149.99 + Shipping (Free with $200 Spend) @ Nicks Wine Merchants

80

I find that Nicks has a great whiskey/whisky selection and I have found some absolute crackers there. That and with my whiskey clubs and others that I am subscribed to, I think I may have a problem.

This is sold out most places (and yes they were the 700ml bottles for around $220)

Quintessentially Speyside, the self-proclaimed flagship was (until relatively recently) reserved exclusively for the French market (the French drink more single malt than the Scots, hence, the best stocks were selected.) Described as "the richest and most indulgent Aberlour", it is invariably a house favourite for both beginners and seasoned malt lovers. No surprise that it was runner up for Best Single Malt Scotch (18 Years) at the 2015 International Whisky Competition

      Yep - love the Sherry - I am a huge fan of Glendronach

    What's your best bang for buck discovery?
    I picked up a mortlach 14 on clearance and love it

    • This was amazing:

      Unfortunately all age statements have gone up considerably.

      The Mortloch is a nice drinker at around 43% alcohol I think - Sherry and something else.

      If you like Sherry grab a Glendronach 15yr - but they are $140 plus

      Ummm so a best for buck - When the Lagavulin 16 goes for under $90 with cashrewards/ boozebud/first choice deals you can't go past it - delicious

    • Best bang for buck recently was a Glengoyne 12 ($82 at BWS) which to me taste almost identical to the Glenmorangie Nectar D'or.
      Also thoroughly enjoyed the Bunnahabain 12 (nice sherry) which was $89 at Dans recently.

      Glenfarclas 105! Nicks have the 1l bottle for $120.

      If you find a good batch of Aberlour A'bunadh then that's very good too.

  • The Deanston 12 is always around $80 at First Choice/Liquorland and sometimes in the 2 for $150. Worth the money.

      Thats on my list. Like the idea of 46% + NCF. Is there something similar you compare it to in terms of taste?

    Aberlour 18 is almost the finest tasting single malt on earth, second only to the 16 y.o double cask - but it's close!

  • Glengoyne or Arran 10's are decent and fairly similar
