Went to the Waitrose in Milton Keynes today. It doesn't carry the full Waitrose malts range, but there was plenty of Lagavulin 16 year old and loads of Aberlour a'Bunadh.
I was after Batch 26 of a'Bunadh, as JM scored it very, very highly. After going through box after box of Batch 28, I eventually found one solitary bottle of Batch 26. Into the trolley it went. Hope that it lives up to JM's billing.
Heavy hints being dropped with daughter that dad would quite like Aberlour 16yo for Christmas.
Being as organised as usual I went in to Waitrose yesterday and found that I had missed the A'bunadh and Nadurra deals, but there is still plenty of good stuff like Caol Ila DE for £27 instead of £40, the Aberlour 16 that Paul mentions above and Springbank 10yo for £23 or £24 I cant remember. Loads of others too. As far as I can see the rest fo the deals run until 5th Jan. 2010.
It is better to have drunk it all than never to have drunk at all.
