    Whisky is pretty much a staple over the festive period. What else is Father Christmas going to drink to keep him going when he does the rounds on December 24th? (Okay, maybe it’s brandy, it’s been a while since I did the whole ‘leave a drink out for Santa’ thing.)

    Anyway, the point is, there are some brilliant Black Friday whisky deals on right now, and if you like a warming tipple as the winter nights draw in, we suggest it’s worth taking advantage of them.
