Crazily cheap price for a 24yr old single malt.

Very little is known about the specifics of the origin of these Glen Marnoch single malts, however the 12 yr old one they sell is well regarded and is typical of a speyside malt.

Regardless, a 24 yr old for little more than many a 12 yr old is quite unbelievable value.

From aldi.co.uk

A very pleasant malt, full-bodied, sweet, honeyed, fruity (hint of oranges) and light oak. The whisky offers a pleasant medium length fruit vanilla finish. Originating from the Highland region of Scotland – the largest Scotch Whisky producing region.

don't forget the £5 off a £30 aldi spend voucher in the mirror today.

Sadly its the same bargain that gets a mention rather than a recommendation for the whisky.

I'm sort of tempted to get one, but would love an opinion on the taste of one. There stuff is generally decent though

Not voting, but the reviews aren't too hot:

Well I managed to get 2 bottles of it this morning from my local Aldi. That's 2 christmas presents bought before I even get to December. It's a first for me. Going back when the 40yr old whiskey comes in.

The 25-year is vile. I tried one glass and the sink was the place for the remainder.

I am also passing on the 40-year. It is a marketing ploy to shift a poor dram. The distillery is "unknown", the name is fictional (they made a name that sounded speyside like) and the price mentioned of £300 (RRP) is bull. It is genuinely not worth £49.99 or anywhere near. It is just a case of those not in the know buying "thinking" they are getting a bargain.

Have to agree, if a Whisky was of the required quality, it happily sells for whatever its worth. Ardbeg Uigeadail was initially £30-£40 (might even being less than £30 to start with), once people realised how good it was the price shot up. Ardbeg Rollercoaster was the same. Good Whisky sells for the price is worth, age helps smooth things out, but if its bad to start with, no amount of smoothing will help.
