I happened on a bottle of The Glenlivet, 12 years old, in the clearance dept at Tesco for £19 & have been tippling that for the past few days. Why clearance I don't know, it's not exactly going to go off. A nice find & a quality item.
I've seen all kinds of stuff in the clearance section at my local Tesco - and wondered why. Stuff like that has an indefinite shelf life.
It could be for some trivial reason such as a marked bottle or damaged label... dunno.

It is probably because their 2019 Christmas stock has a new bar-code and/or box, label etc. with a new price-point. Shelf-life won't be the issue.

My local branches of Tesco have a bay devoted to goods which would have been called "bin-ends" in a vintners, though few of the products are alcoholic. They just seem to be end-of-line goods, which no longer justify much space on other shelves.

The startling thing is that the prices are not clearance prices at all! Everything is horribly mixed up; I nearly bought a paté intended for cats - but it was too dear! :willy:

A friend who is a non drinker recently traveled and asked if we'd like to use her alcohol allowance to get some booze. The Glenlivet is my tipple of choice and when we travel, we buy bottles of the Master Distiller's Reserve, available here (in Australia) only duty free.
Being a non drinker, our friend bought a numbered small batch series of the Master Distiller's Reserve costing 3 times the price of what we were expecting to pay. I was okay with that!
I've not opened it yet, but I've no doubt it'll be smooooooooooth.

What a find! I keep an eye open for single malt bargains for Techy.

I need whiskey. Chrissy and I have now had a winter virus thing for around three weeks and every time we think it's gone, it returns.

Chicken jambalaya.

Can't say I'm impressed. Seems oddly 'bland'.

Went all out last night and made homemade linguine with butter and morels. This lunchtime I fried the leftover pasta and added parmesan and an egg yolk, yum. Sort of carbonara without the bacon, there's a word for it but I forget.
