Derek Mather, owner of the Artisan restaurant in Lanarkshire which stocks more than 1,700 whiskies, said: “If you like a mature speyside whisky, then you will love this one. It’s a really nice, mellow whisky, which is fantastic value for money.”

I was reading earlier that a 30 year old whisky like this can cost £150.

If you look at Whisky exchange cheapest 30 year old is £123. I have seen it for £95 at the airports in the past

I missed out on Lidl's version last year so don't want to miss this one.

Is this only available from Sunday the 8th or before? I'd really appreciate if someone could clarify. Many thanks in advance.

I like how it's 30 year old and was sold for £49.99 last year but this years is £5 dearer.

I dont shoplift but would be very tempted at this price.

It should be all about the flavour, not the age. I have no idea what this tastes like but would prefer to buy two bottles of Jura Superstition and have some money left over than take a chance.

Lol thought it was last year , still got 2bottles :-)

blended

If single this should be nice if blended then not sure apart from giving as a gift with the 30year label on it

Ok so blended I see....

If someone can shed light to this compared to standard malts like glenmorangie glenfidditch

i think ill pass and go for decent single malt this xmas
i would LOVE to try a good 30 year old malt but i guess thats a bridge too far at this price

Not that likely, depends on the rarity factor and if the stuff is actually any good. It's not bad but there's better out there for the money. For a gift as a way of impressing with age this is a fine gift, however it's not about the age, it's about the taste.

ewwaxo

I like single malts. I tried a few expensive blended ones but just aren't as smooth going I guess unless I'm picking wrong ones. Apart from blue label which is nice

Maybe this is what I need for my uncle who looks at age and will get high just off that lol I think £50 would be better spent on single malts regardless of age prob taste Nicer neat

That Aldi whisky may or may not be good - haven't tasted it - but would have to be pretty impressive to be a bargain at that price. You can get something lovely like a bottle of Ardbeg Uigeadail for similar money, or two bottles of very nice malts from other distilleries, for that price.

Best value for a single malt 30 year old in my book goes to Glenfarclas, would cost a fair bit more than this though.

As above, the Ardbeg uigeadail is fantastic stuff, if I had about £50 to blow, it would be at or near the top of my list, and if the person receiving the gift knows anything about Whisky, they'll appreciate it a lot more than a 30 year old Aldi relabelled jobbie.

I think each store only has about 6 bottles .

There was not much about last year .

The reviews in the article are hardly glowing and the £40 for the 33 year old single malt in Lidl last year, which was highly regarding by Jim Murray was a better deal. But that was last year, so I still think this is a good deal. Won't be rushing out though

I have never heard so much rowlocks in my life. If you are old enough to appreciate a good whisky, you are already TOO old. Your taste sensations have gone and all that is happening now is an exercise in spin from the marketing people. I will say the same thing about wine. Total crapola.

I got the 18 year old one last year as it was meant to be something special, but really it was pants. I'm sticking to the known brands this year e.g. Talisker

A 30 year old whiskey will be sublime!!

All this talk of quality and I can't help but think of this line I read "Aldi, one step up from rummaging about in bins"

Still, I don't drink so not really sure why I'm here.

They literally have one or two per store. If you can't queue at opening time, forget it!

nice find

Get some Jim Beam.

This didn't even appear in Jim Murray's whiskey bible. I won't be taking a punt

Probably did under a different name. These aldi/lidl ones are often just casks bought from elsewhere and given a funny name. Usually ones that didn't quite meet the standards of the distillery, or casks that won't be used again. Although saying that the 40yr stuff that Aldi sold a few years ago was meant to be amazing, even Jim Murray liked it. And the other end of the scale, Lidl did a 28 year old which tasted like burnt rubber and panned by everyone who bought a bottle.
