    I noticed a bottle of Penderyn - a bit of a curiosity which I've not tried before - Welsh whisky - in the local Tescos yesterday. The price was reduced to 22 for shoppers showing a Tesco loyalty card.

    I have heard good things about this, though it doesn't originate from the country in which I now live.
