I love these 3 whiskies and they still have great post Prime Day deals

Three deliciously discounted drams to add to your whisky collection

This year's Amazon Prime Day may be over, but the deals continue - including on beer, wine and spirits. However, with so much choice, how can you find the right bottle of whisky to add to your drinks cabinet?

Well, I've been making good use of the Prime Day sales over the years to get my hands on some fine Scotch, Irish and even Japanese whiskies - often with major discounts. And this year's event was no different.

I found three of my favourites that were part of the event, and the best news is that they're all still available with post Prime Day price cuts.

I'll soon be enjoying them along with the best gin deals and best bourbon deals - hopefully you will too.

Aberlour 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky:  was £42

Aberlour 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky: was £42, now £38 at Amazon
A real favourite of thousands of Amazon customers, this 12-year-old single malt is double cask matured. It results in a spicy yet fruity flavour that is best served neat.

Jameson Black Barrel Blended Irish Whiskey:  was £36.95

Jameson Black Barrel Blended Irish Whiskey: was £36.95, now £25 at Amazon
One of the finest reasonably priced (especially in the sales) whiskies from the Jameson distillery - this is matured in a combination of barrels, including those that have been double-charred to give it a richer flavour than conventional Jameson blends.

Nikka From The Barrel Blended Japanese Whisky:  was £45.60

Nikka From The Barrel Blended Japanese Whisky: was £45.60, now £40.99 at Amazon
One of my favourite Japanese whiskies which always has a place in my cabinet, Nikka From The Barrel only comes in a 50cl bottle due to its 51% ABV but is still super smooth to drink. It is blended from different 10-year-old liquids taken from Nikka's Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries.

To be honest, there were a fair few other whiskies in this year's Amazon Prime Day sales I could recommend, but the three above are perennial faves. They each also still come with decent discounts.

You no longer need to be a Prime member to benefit neither, although you might still want to sign up for decent Lightning deals on spirits, free same- and next-day delivery, and future Amazon sales events. We suspect Prime Day 2 could be coming in October, too.
