sourced from the daily fail, but i visited Aldi in Alloa today and got 2 bottles. Its reputed to be worth 2-3 times that price so we'll see. source :

I'm half tempted to check what that 30yo speyside is, but I don't think there's an Aldi south of London...

Aldi's wines and spirits are extremely good
value already but they have announced
that they are going upmarket to attract a
class of person that like even better wines
etc. Maybe this is the start of it.

So, did anyone get their hands on the 40yr single malt last time, 6 per store.

You're quite right, there's one within 15 miles which surprises me as I'm sure they were 50+miles last time I looked after seeing a deal on here (admittedly a couple of years back, maybe more) so I assumed they were all up north like Home Bargains etc. Still a fair walk for a bottle of whisky though :)

Bought this last time round in March (ish) this year. Very nice and well worth the 30 quid and more.
#11
They've got 30 year old port for £29.99 also. And not too far from the door!
#12
I confirm the brandy is perfectly quaffable. hic!
#13
How does it compare to a Remy Martin?
#14
I've managed to get a bottle of the 1973 brandy :) - thought it was worth it before it sells out! I am not sure whether it would really retail at £107...but that said its seems likely to be a steal at this price and I was surprised there were any bottles left in store. This review from last year sung its praises: http://www.bacononthebeech.com/2012/12/aldi-1973-vintage-bordeaux-naploeon.html

Cheapo - very smooth, to the point of almost being too smooth! Nice though and not overpowering like a cheaper brandy. Definitely an easy drinking tipple for a cold winters evening!

Can't be worse than that new stuff they're calling "remy" truly awful.
i've still got 2 bottles of the old vsop,dark bottle remy,boxed and un opened,ill sell them on flog it in 30 year time and pay off my mortgage :)
#17
Over a week old thread, doubt there will be stock =/
#18
I can never find this deal :(
#19
Ooh, brought back a tawny port from Oz, which had been bottled in the year of my parents marriage and they loved it. Wish I had seen this thread then.
#20
I recommend their Southerrn Belle Bourbon & Orange liqueur, £9.99 a bottle, can't stop drinking the stuff, straight over ice!
#21
Wish I could get hold of some for my parents 40th wedding anniversary.

there might be a £5 off coupon in the daily mirror next week (unless it was yesterday - i lose track - they've been appearing at monthly intervals).

i fancy a bottle of armagnac - although i expect they'll soon disappear if the poster who says it's 6 bottles per store is correct.

waitrose is selling half-price champagne and cava - although the original price might be excessive.

tesco cava got a good review in a newspaper and that's only around £6 a bottle - can't remember if it was finest that the critic liked.

There were certainly more than 6 bottles of the Brandy in my local Aldi when i bought it and some El Dorado Rum last week so you may still get lucky. I know my local Aldi still has the 15 yr old El Dorado left though the Brandy has gone...

get some christmas pudding while you're there.

i read that aldi's £3.89 xmas pud has been rated superior to a £40 cake from fortnum and mason and above a £20 pudding form harrods.
