Something for the weekend?


Spotted in my local Carrefour:


A bottle of The Singleton for only 125TL. That’s £32, or $48 at current exchange rates.

This is pretty decent value for Turkey, where imported spirits can be pricey. You can even see in this photo that Talisker 10 Year Old is twice as expensive at 250TL/£64/$96, and Lagavulin is an eye-watering 320TL.

The Singleton isn’t the super-sexiest of single malts in terms of marketing, but it’s a good quality, pleasant example of the Dufftown style, so I may well have to rescue a bottle of this for regular dramming purposes.
