Top 10 whiskies that won’t break the bank

With Christmas closing in the drinks business offers some help with gift ideas and we revisit a feature published earlier this year, looking at whiskies that cost less than £40.

whiskyThere is a huge choice of whiskies in this price bracket and it can be difficult to know which to choose. If you are buying Scotch as a present one key tip is to try and found out if the intended recipient prefers whisky from a particular region. This could be Highland or Speyside, Islay or Islands, whiskies from the latter two tend to be more peated and smoky.

This list is based on the whiskies costing less than £40, that this scribe has tasted and by no means have I got close to trying them all. So this is my own list, based on the whiskies that I have tasted and based on my own tastes, which as you will see has a slight leaning towards peated whisky.

    Good choice, Andy. I like this one a lot, too…

    One has to wonder what the author knows about whisky, after his article describes Talisker as an Islay whisky and compares it to Lagavulin and Laphroaig. Talisker of course is from the only distillery on the Isle of Skye, as any whisky drinker would know.

      Doh!! try reading the article again Ash. Think you will find it was a direct comparison with the Islay whiskies. It did not say it was an Islay whisky.

    Ash – read the Talisker article properly – it was only a comparison with the Islay whiskies.

    You are, what is known in Scotland, as a bletherin erse!!

    Great choices Andy
