After Aldi's superb whisky a few years ago (was it an aged Mortlach? It was fantastic!) I look forward to their Christmas leaflet.
This year's is very poor indeed.
Their "For The Connoisseur" section features their Baileys knock-offs
A bottle of "French XO Brandy" for £14, and a wholly missable opportunity to buy a 4.5 litre bottle of tawny port for £99.
I'm not saying Christmas is ruined, but they're not helping things.
"For the Connoisseur" indeed.

First world problems, eh? Laughing

I’m disappointed too, although grateful for the awesome drams they did put out during their ‘golden years’. Yes, it was a Mortlach, fortunately I put some aside 👍🏾

Ant in Wales, November 19th Lidl’s are doing a rare islay 16 year old for £34.99, maybe that will help cheer your mood.

Yes,I saw that and thought worth a whirl.
Not Lagavulin, surely?

Been thinking about this. Could be Laga but why would you bother? it's so close to the normal price point...

Then I thought maybe Caol Ila or Bowmore.

According to the brochure in shop it's going to be 43% ABV.

Will be keeping an eye out for that, thanks.
