I suppose everyone is different, some people are happy with Bells after all.

Have you had it? What was wrong with it?

Being a single malt doesn't automatically make a whisky great. I am not saying that the OP thought this but plenty of people would.

Good point, I have actually tied it and its not bad, not a Macallan, but then its not a Macallan price!

You've got to remember there's no such place as Glen Marnoch. Aldi, like all other supermarkets, buy in their whisky from established distilleries, although for obvious reasons they tend to keep their cards close to their chest as to where each expression comes from. Sainsbury's Highland Single Malt won the Gold award for best NAS a few years back, and it's priced at a similar price point. There were mutterings that it is actually a Dalmore given the bottler named on the label.

Aldi's Christmas special this year was a 28yr Glen Marnoch that was bottled at a specific ABV that only one distillery uses...and their similar age expression regularly charges hands for 6 times what Aldi were asking for...

*shudders* bells really is a poor whisky. But as my dad once told me

"there are no bad whiskies, just some are better than others" ;)

Hmmmmm, rather go without than drink that paintstripper and I am a Whisky man.

I've tried the Speyside and Islay bottles of this Glen Marnoch.
For the price you pay, they are at best acceptable. Certainly worth the extra cost when compared to the likes of the mainstream blended brands, however I find them to be lacklustre on the finish. They are over and done in a very short time, so you will find yourself reaching for another sip very quickly.
If you are prepared to pay a little more money, you can obtain better quality whisky if you shop around.
Aberlour 12 and Laphroaig 10 can regularly be obtained for £25 from most supermarkets and Amazon Lightning Deals throws up some bargain delights.
Deanston Virgin Oak was on Amazon last week for £26, an absolute bargain for just £8 more than this.

Oh I agree, I'm a whisky drinker too. Bells truly is awful. I would do without rather than drink that.

Better off buying the Glen Moray Sherry Cask (not the standard) from Sainsburys for £22 if you want a cheap whisky with some flavour.
