Pete's review is positive
Asda have decided to head firmly for the premium end of the own-label market with the arrival of Tasgall – a 30 year old blend of Highland and Speyside malts and Lowland grain whiskies, currently selling at a reasonable-sounding £60, which is reviewed here. There is also a slightly cheaper 25 year old version available, at £50.

The nose is sweet and soft, filled with gently spiced honey and a touch of ryegrass – there’s something mildly bourbon-y about it. Water reduces the sweetness a touch, but it’s still gently spiced and a lot of raw oak is revealed with little hints of vanilla.

In the mouth an initially sticky sweet honey is quickly joined by rich old oak tannins that balance the sweetness perfectly. There are rich fruitcake spices running through it, giving a delicious finish that doesn’t overlinger. Watered, the flavours are all somewhat muted – the richness is lost without much to take its place.

Definitely one to enjoy neat, I love this whisky. It’s rich, smooth and very approachable and, as my tasting notes say, fantastically drinkable. It doesn’t particularly taste its age, and so perhaps the price is harder to justify – at £60 it earns 4 stars; if it was £15 cheaper, it would be 4.5

Anyone tried these?

I'd give the JD apple punch a miss even at £5

Took a punt on the 30, don't like the island flavours so much but my mate does.

Looks like a bargain, a nice blend is underrated.

Thanks OP. Has to be worth a punt at this price!

I think so..

Got the 30 yr old. Many thanks to the OP. Hogmanay here we come.

Can confirm winter jack is £5 in Leamington Spa

Popped in on the way past one to see if they had the 30 but 1 lonely bottle left of the 25 so picked it up to keep it company...

Thought so

Ordered this for delivery and they sent me out some Balantines ><_

Heat - Bargain. A 25 year old or 30 year old blend can cost up to ten times the price! And the reviews are favourable too.

Just purchased the 25 and im seriously impressed... Ill defiantly be picking up another bottle

Just ordered a bottle of each with a bottle of sourmix to take it to £51 then used voucher JAN10FOS to get it all for £41 to collect. Voucher is £10 off a £50 shop first time customer.

The jack Daniels winter punch tastes awful.
