    has anyone got an opinion on these? i seem to be developing a taste for whisky, but decent whisky isnt cheap. are the aldi and lidl single malts worth considering, or are they a case of getting what you pay for?

    Great question, and I will follow your thread closely as I'm interested too. Read an article, and I cant find it right now - that the Aldi Speyside won an award for whisky of the year. Saw it this morning for £17.99.
     
  3. Both do an islay blend which are very good if you like a peaty whisky

    Lidl's Ben Bracken Islay is not bad for the price...
    Not in the same league as, say, Lagavulin 16 - but that's almost three times the price...

    Keep an eye on their website, they do have some really great ones that come up. Occasionally they will make the national papers when one wins an award however these then get snapped up quickly.

    Dont have a Lidl nearby - if Aldi have some of the Speyside in stock this weekend, will buy a bottle.
