  1. zholthran scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A lot better than price, (no) name and buying place (best-known German discounter) makes you think. Blind tasting highly recommended!

    At ALDI there is this Blackstone 18yo for the price of CHF 26.90. According to not so unbelievable Internet sources it should be a Glen Ord (Diageo). Refuse me to give this drop a bad mark, just because it is a cheap no-name.
    • Nose
      Malt, steamed apple slices, fruit (plums), oak, nut
    • Taste
      nutty and slightly alcoholic
    • Finish
      Milk chocolate, oak, hazelnut, rather short, with an alcoholic touch. The dryness even causes some sherry bottlenecks to close.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Nice nose, otherwise a bit flat, but not unpleasant. Do not bother and there are certainly worse malts
