Only their entry level one, but 70cl of Four Roses for €14 where I am on holiday. Also got a bottle of Gentleman Jack for €25 which is more or less UK price. Triple measure of Four Roses single barrel for €12 in the club I was in on Saturday which is a fair enough price for somewhere like that.

Can usually get Woodford for £25 (normal price) in Asda and Tesco near me.

WT81 is currently £18 on Amazon, in fact it's almost continuously under £20.

I've just ordered a bottle of WT Rare Breed for £45 with free delivery <divax>

Had a bottle of that 3 or 4 years ago, decent stuff. Good strength and has a nice kick to it.

No idea but prices in supermarkets seem to be the same.

But I've given up booze for July so maybe I've just not noticed <laugh>

I've definitely noticed a slight increase over the last few months. I'd guess around 10% on average but more or less depending on distributor I suppose.

There are so many bourbon offers on in the supermarkets anyway that even if there was a rise it probably wouldn't matter half the time.

I'd say it does though. From the top of my head until around Feb/March or so, Maker's Mark, Woodford Reserve and Bulleit could all regularly be picked up for £20 a bottle quite often between most of the big supermarkets and Amazon. Bulleit often down to £18.

Bulleit has been £22-£25 a bottle for months now, Woodford at least £25 and Maker's Mark reduced to below £23 today for the first time in months (£20 on Amazon!).

Even Buffalo Trace has been consistently £16-£18 a bottle for years now, but in the past few months has risen to £19-£20 a bottle at least.

Jim Beam Double Oak was £16-£20 a bottle nearly all of last year and up to about March/April again. Going rate now is £20-£25.

Why do I notice these things? <erk>

It's okay to admit you have a problem, this is a safe space <laugh>

Fair enough, I rarely pay full price for anything, just rotate what I drink based on offers <ok>

The bourbon prices at my local Waitrose have actually gone down since the tarif was implemented.

They were selling standard Jim Beam for just £12.70 and Buffalo Trace was down to £14.95.

So many deals, what a time to not be drinking <urgh>
