Thanks for the heads up, never used them before is that the items in the Marked Down section of their site or did you get a newsletter?

So I haven't had whiskey in a while. I picked up bottle of Paddy's and discovered that I could hardly get it down. It was so SWEET, like syrup. Tried Jamesons....sweet.

WTF?
Try a Scotch already. Something smooth and non peaty like Glenmorangie.

I need another suggestion for a whisky to try but nothing too peaty please. I would prefer something in the region of R500 or less.

I have tried, and enjoy, the following;

Singleton
Highland Park
Glenfiddich
Glen Livet
Glenmorangie
Glen Grant
Loch Lomond
Nikka
Black Bottle

I checked on Makro's site last night and they seem to have a wide variety available.

These are excellent drams that fall within your palate and price range at Makro.

Check out the Dewars 12 year old, around R300 and well worth the money. Also, it's better than the 15 year old which is sub-R400. Also, check out the Aficionados sale, there's a Balblair around R360.
