We came, we saw, we poured some fantastic drams - but just like a good bottle of whisky, nothing lasts forever. So it is that Amazon Prime Day has gone into hibernation for another year, but we hope you were lucky enough to treat yourself to some of the strong stuff with the help of Louder.
The deals listed below were the best we managed to unearth over the Prime Day event, but we’ve kept them listed here just in case you want another look. Some deals still appear to be running, but they likely won't last long, so get in now if you're after a tasty drop.
We’ve now got a few weeks to catch our breath before Black Friday descends on November 27 and Cyber Monday on November 30 – but you can be sure than Team Louder will be on hand once again to show you to some of the best deals around.

Prime Day whisky deals: Under £30
Chivas Regal Whisky Blending Kit: Was
£29.95, now £16.00
We really like this idea - a blending kit courtesy of Chivas Regal. Mix and match from the 5cl pours in the pack to create something unique, with a flavour profile to suit your particular palette. It’s a great way to learn to separate the fruity, floral, citrus and smoky flavours and aromas from whisky.
Chivas Regal 12 year old: Was
£29.95, now £23
For less than 20 notes, you can’t go wrong here. This popular blend is ideal for sipping or mixing – and makes a decent High Ball. Blends can get a bad wrap from the whisky snobs, but Chivas is always a decent drop - and versatile, too. And let's not forget, there's a confident age statement on the bottle – and that should also be celebrated.
Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack: Was
£36, now £29.59
While Jack Daniel’s Old No.7 might be more iconic this version of the famous Tennessee whiskey is more robust and carries more flavour. Mix it if you want or even drop a chunk or two of ice on it, but this is also a tasty drop neat.
Glenmorangie 10 year old: Was
£37.49, now £26
This classic Highland single malt has long been a dependable dram and one that’s enjoyed by those beginning their whisky journey and experienced quaffers alike. Light and fruity with a nice whack of malt, you really can’t go wrong.
Johnnie Walker Double Black: Was
£42.50, now £32.69
The Double Black was originally bottled for the travel retail sector, but was popular enough for Diageo to take stock and give it a general release. Smokier than the standard 12 year old Black Label, this blended whisky is a good dram for a cold night – and this is a great price.
Eagle Rare: was
£36, now £30
This 10 year old bourbon comes from Buffalo Trace but unlike their standard offering at 40% – which would be great at a higher ABV –the Eagle Rare weighs in a more respectable 45%. It’s nutty, has some citrus notes and is packed with cinnamon and vanilla flavours.
Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair: Was
£36, now £32
This non-age statement expression from the team at Islay’s Bunnahabhain distillery is bottled, as always, at a robust 46.3% ABV. Sherry casks have been used in its maturation and it’s a cracker of a dram. Note: The view from Bunnahabhain over to Jura is knockout, so if you’re over on the island, a distillery trip is a must.
Prime Day whisky deals: Under £40
Redbreast 12 year old: Was
£49.99, now £37.38
This is a fabulous single pot still Irish whisky. In fact, you could pick up anything from the Redbreast range and we’re pretty confident you wouldn’t be disappointed. The 12 is their entry level and is simply excellent – and with a chunk of change off it right now, this is a bargain.
Prime Day whisky deals: Under £50
Oban Little Bay Reserve - Night's Watch: Was £65 now £46.99
This one really stands out on your whisky shelf thanks to its striking all-black presentation - a salute to the hardy souls of the Night's Watch. Luckily, the juice in the bottle is just as good and carries a whiff of smoke, but not the heavy peat that can be found in whiskies from Lagavulin, Ardbeg and Laphroaig. A great price for a lovely dram.
Prime Day whisky deals: Under £100
Aberlour A'Bunadh: £91 , now £77.12
A few years ago, a bottle of this heavily sherried expression from Aberlour was cheap as chips. Sadly, the price has rocketed since, but this is much more like it, thanks to a whisky-soaked saving of 35%.
Lagavulin 9 House Lannister: Was
£65 now £51.43
In our opinion, whisky from Lagavulin is heard to beat - and if you're ever on the island of Islay, a warehouse tasting at the distillery is essential. This 9 year old has a different character from the 8, 12 and 16 years old Lagavulins, making it one to savour and explore.
Cedar Ridge Slipknot No. 9 Whiskey: Was
£68.20, now £64.95
Iowa heavyweights Slipknot hooked up with Cedar Ridge distillery to create this banging American whiskey. You might think this is a marketing gimmick, but the liquid is very good indeed and a lot of care and attention has gone into its making.
Jack Daniel's Frank Sinatra Edition: Was £139.50, now £99.99
This is not your standard Old No. 7. This special Frank Sinatra edition is a cut above the rock'n'roll favourite - especially if you’re after something to sip rather than mix. It’s helped by the fact it’s bottled at 45% ABV and allows flavours of apple, orange and vanilla to come to the fore. For a litre, this is great deal.
Prime Day whisky deals: Over £100
Johnnie Walker Blue Label: Was
£189, now £129.98
Johnnie Walker's Blue Label is a whisky you've got to try at least once. It's a dram that more experienced whisky drinkers tend to ignore, but if you feel like splashing out, now is as good a time as any. Sure, there are plenty of other whisky options at this price, but the Blue is still worth experiencing - especially at this price.

Glencairn Whisky Tasting Glasses
To get the most out of your whisky, glassware is important. Tumblers are great if you’re going to add a chunk of ice to a bourbon, but the Glencairn is the industry standard. Its tulip shape allows aromas to be more focused and attend any whisky festival and these will be the glass of choice.
