Anyone tried the Glen marnoch aldi range yet? I had the islay last night and it was surprisingly good! Very similar to laphroaig 10.

Anyone tried Auchentoshan American Oak? It appears to be heavily discounted on amazon at the moment but reviews are mixed. I also prefer an age statement but understand why this isn't always used! I'm ...
