This is a blended malt but the Shackleton in the blue box that is usually £30 is on offer sometimes for a s low as £20 and is an easy sipper with a nice profile.
Chivas Regal 12 year is still worth a punt and I have heard though I have not tried it myself the Highland Black 8 year from Aldi is pretty decent and well worth the money. _________________ Pour me a glass please.
Ballantine's Finest and Chivas Regal 12 are both decent blends for the price when found on offer and are a step up in quality from the standard Bells, Whyte & Mackay blends. There are a few blended malts around these days such as the Shackleton and Monkey Shoulder which can often be found around £20
I too would mention Aldi's Highland Black at about £13.50 but like others say there are often blended malts available for under £20 such as Naked Grouse. Aldi themselves have a blended malt for about £15 but also their three malts are actually also under £20 as are many supermarkets own label. Then there are even named malts that often meet that price bracket including Glen Moray. Also worth mentioning the pair of Aerstones often £20.
To my palate, Compass Box Great King Street - Artist's Blend is light-years better than any other blend in that price range, as well as then many blends at the price range above (£50-60 or so). It costs £26.
