‘Tis the season to buy whisky – Online!

If you’re quick, you might just get your ChristmasWhis order in for whisky from two fab online whisky retailers:
Royal Mile Whiskies and Master of Malt. Although word out is midday 22nd December for last orders, it would be advisable to check with them by phone before ordering.

Royal Mile Whiskies is a multi-award winning whisky shop with two outlets I know of (Edinburgh and London) and an excellent website. It doesn’t always compete on price with the supermarkets if you are after standard bottlings, but is practically unbeatable for the specialist and unusual whiskies. The staff are extremely knowledgeable, and are always keen to help. They have a wide range of gifts and accessories for the whisky aficionado and newbie alike.

I quite fancy this gift pack of 2 20cl Caol Ila Islay malts £39.95 + post and packaging.
(Pronounced: “cull ee-lah”. Well, near enough.)

Master of Malt have a genius idea: whisky tasting sets. These are different selections of 15ml (and 30ml) sampling bottles. Ideal try-before-you-buy, or for a DIY tasting evening.

Here are some examples:

Bourbon Tasting Set · £24.95

I’m very tempted by this:

Extreme Whisky Tasting Set · £31.95
which contains the following delights:
– Yoichi 20 Year Old
– Bowmore 26 Year Old – Single Cask (Master of Malt)
– Parker’s 27 Year Old Heritage Collection
– Bruichladdich Octomore 02.2 Orpheus
– George T Stagg

And if you miss the deadline, there’s always hogmanay.
