One Litre Scotch Super Deals
This is where the value is! Fabulous prices on big-name brands at direct import prices including Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, Glenfarclas, Highland Park, Bowmore and more. Many bottlings otherwise available via duty free only.
As the coronavirus continues to create havoc across the globe, no industry has taken the brunt of its force more than the travel industry. With flights cancelled and borders closed, international travel has ground to a halt. The immediate effect on Travel Retail / Duty Free has been so great, word is that some distilleries are suspending the production of one litre bottlings usually reserved for Travel Retail / Duty Free. Until the travel industry is back on its feet and there is renewed demand from international tourists, supplies of one litre whiskies and other spirits will most likely start to dry up. Already re-stocks of many Glenfarclas, Macallan, Bowmore, Balvenie whiskies, just to name a few, are becoming difficult to procure. Now is the time to grab these one litre super deals on Scotch whisky as supply is not guaranteed for the foreseeable future.

Whether you know one or are one, every Old Parr deserves a blend as good as this! In Jim Murray's words, "blending Parr excellence!"
Usually available at Duty Free stores only, Old Parr is named after Tom Parr (pictured on the label), once reputed to be the oldest man in England. Launched in 1909, the brand later found success in export markets such as Japan, Mexico and South America where it was easily identified in its distinctive dimpled and rounded square bottle. The basis of the blend today is Cragganmore, however Glendullan has also been a major component since World War II.
Tasting note: Deep gold / bright copper penny colour. An attractive mix of cocoa, vanilla and breakfast fruit toast with exposure drawing out a fruit'n'nut chocolate aspect. Concentrated for the genre, with a spicy backbone that includes muesli, dried grass and light stewed fruit flavours, ending honeyed yet fresh, grainy, peppery and with excellent length. Quite richly styled. Gets better each time you taste it. 40% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... Perhaps on about the fourth or fifth mouthfeel, the penny drops that this is not only exceptionally good whisky; it is blending Parr excellence. 91.5 points- Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2016
Golden amber color. Aromas of honeyed nut toast and cereal with a soft, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body with a vanilla toffee and pepper finish. A very pleasant, easy-going blend. International Review of Spirits Award: Silver Medal
