Credit Crunch

Hi All, With the state of the world today,has it made a major impact on buying/drinking of SMS? I my case it has big time, I have just had a £525 4 weekly pay cut and put on a 3 day week. I find with the household bills I can no longer afford the SMS I once could.I'm now looking at supermarket malts/vatted malts.Has anyone got any they can recommend to me.My taste are Islay, Island and sherried Speysides. Cheers, Drew.

Hi Drew,
Sorry to hear how you've been hit by this global economic downturn. I hope you're able to weather it and make a good comeback.
Clan MacGregor is an inexpensive supermarket Scotch. I bought it as a cooking whisky, but found it to be an adequate dram. Not the best, by any means, but adequate.

Shit happens but goes away... :-) I found 'The Ileach' very good QPR! Anders

Seems like a couple of trips ago, we found a supermarket Islay that was pretty good. It wasn't one of your bigger chains, and we found a bottle at a less-than-pretty store in Northallerton (Yorkshire). As I remember, it might have been ASDA??

I can attest to that. Also the Dun Bheagan, Finlaggan and Smokehead, all young south Islays, often thought to be Lagavulins, that have been distributed in North America. I like these better than many older and much more expensive Islays. They are very energetic, in-your-face malts, with tons of peat, smoke and phenols.
I don't recommend the McClelland's Islay, a young Bowmore that doesn't excite my palate. But if you're a Bowmore fan, which I'm not, it might be worth looking for.
They don't have supermarket malts where I live, but if they did, I'd certainly be trying all the supermarket Islays. In fact, send me some and I'll happily share my opinion.
