jazzpianofingers gave this whisky 78 points

Attempting to lure us malt drinker away from our internet comforts and into Aldi stores for the Christmas madness is another selection of astonishingly grand vintage and/or age statement single malts and other spirits, for peanuts [£40, Nov ’17], Tasted blind.

https://whiskylovingpianist.wordpress.com/2017/11/15/al-di-leaves-are-brown/

  • N: Whilst no one is expecting craft strengths at this price from this store, this comes across a little more powerful than 40%. After admiring its pale golden hue, nosing, I immediately find myself in joyous vintage [1970’s] bourbon cask territory, the candy-ish orchard fruits flying out with serious intent. Underpinned by a familiar & generalised honeyed grassy yeasty>aspirin cereal profile, those vibrant fruits quickly become muddy and clay-like. Speyside, Ireland? Certainly it’s a single malt.
  • T: Fairly modest, well tempered/blended old juice. Honeyed vanilla cereal notes in the main with a touch of warm sweet lemon on the side and again, a little underlying aspirin. Plenty of 3rd/4th/5th?] refill action so guessing age becomes more tricky. Give or take 20 years, more?
  • F: Finishes short.
  • C: The price is rather more astonishing than the juice, but the juice itself isn’t half bad either. Bearing in mind this doesn’t like oxygen one bit, just keep pouring small measures for repeated fruity whiffs of yesteryear [hopefully]. Possibly a Glen Moray or something of that ilk? Top marks for presentation Aldi.
