Ok so it's been all over the news of late being one of the best blends in the world. So I thought why not give it a go. The price is good thirteen pounds I must be honest I don't drink blended whisky that often but this one isn't bad I do find it a bit harsh and yes I've had betters blends but had to pay for them well done Lidl. My go to single malt at the moment is Lidl Ben Bracken speyside which has me thinking why in the past I've paid so much money drinking the more expensive stuff as I always thought these cant be as good. So would I recommend Queen Margot well if price is the issue then yes it's good but if you can pay a bit more I'd still go for the Lidl single malts.
I know what you mean but if money is an issue then I would say this is a good choice better than Bells etc in my opinion yes single malts are better but this ain't bad. I know it's a personal thing reviews.
If money are tight I def recommend Compass Box Great Kings Street blends, there are a fruity and a smoky one. Their 50cl bottles are like 26 quid, they are worlds apart from any other cheap (and many expensive) blends and better than the vast majority of single malts of that price range.

Cheap yes, harsh yes, Any good, no not for me, stick to single malts unless you find a real decent blend.
There are hundreds of great older blends available at auction for peanuts compared to the high prices of aged malts, they should not be overlooked.
Remember in the 50`s. 60`s & 70`s no one was bottling single malts hardly and all the best casks went into blends plus the % malt content was a good bit higher than it is nowadays.
I have had some older blends that were much better than 4 figure malts. _________________ Pour me a glass please.
