It's a not a brand anyone has heard of, so £30 is probably the right price, Id have thought?

Jim Murray rated it very highly:

Bargain, at the original £45 price, and a huge bargain at £30.

Might even be possible to make a tidy profit on the purchase if so inclined:

Cheers, picked up a couple in Newport.
Price on shelf edge was wrong/not updated again, so worth checking.
Expensive few days for the whiskyphiles at Lidl...um...16 bottles of the various sorts in total...just waiting for those last 2 bottles of Ben Bracken 22YO Islay to be reduced...
#5
Prefer the 25yo glenalba, picked one up at the weekend, not on offer but still excellent at £32.

It's a bargain based on it's taste, not whether it's well known or not.
Lidl will be using whisky from a well-known distillary, they won't have set one up themselves.

Do you mean the 22 yo? If you do it is on offer at £15 (from £30) so get yourself down sharpish.

I bought two bottles of the 22YO today in Brigg. It as marked-up at "29.99, but took it to the cash til and it went through at £14.99 each. Everyone was amazed as they had no idea at the tills and shop....

Bells is very famous - I've got a bottle here you can have for £50?

He has a point, in that if you stick this in a Glenlivet bottle it'd sell for 10x this much, probably more

Sell it in Lidl and price is about right. Wouldn't really matter if it's the same stuff, people pay for the brand

He hasn't got a point at all. Glenlivet Founders Reserve can sometimes be got for just over £20 and it's an awful whisky.

Founders Reserve is NAS....

I think you've missed the point, try reading it again?!

I'm well aware it's NAS but the OP is ambiguous - I think you need to consider that maybe your interpretation might be wrong?

No, the point stands and is obviously the case here.

The point is that whisky goes by its reputation, Bells is a cheap blend - everyone knows this. Glenalba is an unknown brand of malt so doesn't have a reputation so you'd expect it to cost a lot less as it has no reputation, even if it is actually very good.

Interestingly if you look at the bottom of the label it is from the "clydesdale scotch whisky company" Other whiskys registered here are Whyte & Mackay, Dalmore, Isle of Jura, Tamnavulin...Glen alba has also been winning awards notably glen alba 22 winning "best 'special release' blended whisky of 2015 at the world whisky awards. (beating johnnie walker Blue at 5x the price)

Yet to try a bottle, but I bought several.
