1. Scottisch whiskys
The results of the Scotch Whisky Masters 2018 have recently been announced. Among those results was a gold medal for Aldi’s £13-a-bottle blended whisky, Highland Black 8 Year Old. I purchased it for 12,99€ in my Aldi local store.
Otherwise you cannot go wrong with a Scottish whisky (for me), even if I tried Japanese ones too and I must say that they really are worth trying !
I confirm: pretty good for the cheap price, however some other whiskies are more interesting or tastier (and obviousmy much more expensive).

2. A Bordeaux Whisky
Pier1, or Pier2, also available in a Coffret with 2 glasses. About 50€ a bottle. You can either buy it directly at the Moon Harbour distillery, or in a spirits shop in Bordeaux (I saw it in a few ones now). You can also get a voucher for a distillery visit + 1 bottle (or a Coffret), several options available.
1) My visit at the Moon Harbour distillery, and 2) a private evening I attended. As you can see, the place is really great to host an event.
