I've just picked up two bottles of Ben Bracken Islay Single Malt Scotch Whiskey in Lidl. This was distilled in 1993 and is in store at £39.99. This first went on sale in 2016 and has been been back in store now and again, but in the past i've not seen stock.

This has also won an award:

Which branch was this in?
Any idea which distillery this comes from?
They advertised this in their Xmas brochure by accident. I was gutted.

I was unaware it had come back into stock. If it was old stock you have found the last two I suspect

High Wycombe. The bottles I picked up were the only ones on shelf.

That sounds about right as I did try and pick these up around then without luck. The store had this clearly priced up on the shelf so to me this comes across as they've put out fresh stock.
Darlington have stock too ..i was in this afternoon
glen alba 22 year old was 14.99 lidl on Cottingham road Hull last week. No idea whether any left.
Sounds great on paper doesn’t it? The reality is not so rosey. I think personally for the money your better off buying a younger more established Islay Single Malt. I would recommend Kilchoman Machir Bay, Ardbeg 10, Laphroaig QCor the New Lagavulin 8 for the same money (the latter £8 premium).

Have you tried it? I have and it's far better than the standard Islay's.

A lame attempt at sarcasm or are you for real?

It's an Islay single malt, so already comes from one of the established distilleries.

Yes, i have. I love Islay whisky and I had to try this given the age and region. Its rather disappointing. Definitely Bowmore. I’d give it a 80/100 at best. However, don’t listen to me, I’m fussy when it comes to Islay whisky. Lagavulin 8 is a masterpiece at £48 a bottle. Seriously, buy that instead of this.
Bit expensive for Lidl, innit !!
I got the 27 year old at Christmas for £30, amazing bargain. Really nice, as said, it's got to be one of about 5 distilleries, all of which would want far more for anything approaching 20 years.

I think you should just have left it as "don't listen to me"
