Asked in my local Aldi (Nuneaton) yesterday about 24yr old Glen Marnoch and staff knew nothing about it so perhaps offer is only in certain localities Sad
The Glen Marnoch 24 is mentioned on the Aldi website as "Thursday Special Buys 24th November 2011" so i would check again on Thursday if you are after a bottle, the site also states "While stocks last" so i wouldnt think there will be many bottles per store.

Was worth queing for an hour and a half for this, a very tasty smooth whisky - an excellent dram - well done Aldi for selling this splendid whisky at an affordable price. This will be the only time I can afford a 40year old whisky. Very Happy

Aldi have a Glen Marnoch 12 for £17.99. Also signs of an out of stock 18 for £19.99 which apparently was a weekly deal earlier in November.

Did we all miss this one? Lots of news about Aldi whisky last Christmas, and I've heard nothing about plans for this year. Is the Glen Marnoch a Dalmore....?

The answer is based on this snippet:

"Glen Marnoch 12 year old (£12.99 in Aldi) is actually a 12 yr old Dalmore (£35 - £40 per bottle). Aldi bought the whole vat cheap" {courtesy of SingleTrack}.

Have found this review suggesting Glen Marnoch 12, 18 and 24 yr holds on sale right now - have only seen the 12 and that was in 2 separate stores.

i picked up a bottle of the 24y/o last Thursday for £29.99

I didnt count how many there were but id guess 15-20. Not been back to the store since so not sure if they sold out but there certainly wasnt any signs of a stampeed to get a bottle

I opened it that night and didnt think much of it. Pretty tame, not very complex with not much of a finish. Not bad for the price but for a fiver more i wish i'd just picked up another bottle of laga 16 from waitrose.

...but never can have too many different bottles in the cabinet

There was no Glen Marnock 24 year old left in my local Aldi.

I have had the Glen Marnock 18 before and it was very drinkable considering i paid £20 for it.

Have found a bottle of 18 in a local Aldi which they had fiendishly hidden in the back "on the specials pallet next to the duvet sets" B-) will report back later

The 18 is good, a full bodied highland dram, Oakey, vanilla, citrus. Excellent for £20!
