    I think the Islay and Speyside are exceptional value at under £18. They are better than some £30 whiskies Iíve bought in the past imo, well worth a try if you like whisky.
    Same goes for their wine as well.

    The young doctor is a bit of a connosieur of the "grappa" and reckons Aldi/Lidl can't be beaten for value.

    Don't know how they do it but Aldi seem to pick a bunch of winners for their alcohol offer.

    Schwaben Bršu, again:



    Cheers!

    ĄI believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialismď

    Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition.

    Very nice indeed.

    A great bunch of lads the Irish when it comes to whisky distilling.

    Settle ‘Earl Grey’ IPA.
    Tastes just like the tea it takes it’s name from.
    I’m getting pissed. On tea. What a time to be alive.

    Sounds good, I’d like to try that, quite partial to Earl Grey. Is it just the bergamot flavour or tea as well?

    Queen Margot 8 yr old whisky. It’s a blend from Lidl and at £13 a bottle it needs to be tried! I can see why it’s won gold awards and got good reviews.
    Buy a bottle tomorrow and thank Uncle Bryn later on

    Several pints of Abbot at the Plough Inn in our village.
    It is a decent pint, and Brooke and Martin keep a decent cellar so the beer is in good nick.
    Mind you, coupled with the homemade multi-meat pizza, topped with lots of jalapeno, onions, garlic and tomatoes, it has resulted in a sewerage-treatment plant-blocking tom tit this morning.
    Several flushes required to get that one down the pipes!

    Having a mate up north, there is a factory just north of Edinburgh that produces industrial quantities of raw spirit that is sold to the whisky distillers to form the base of their "cheaper" lines.
    This processed base spirit is cheap and doesn't have any character that the traditional distilleries embody into their product.
    It is this low-cost industrially-produced base that enables whisky producers to produce a relatively cheap brand to offer, rather than the much higher priced traditionally distilled spirit.
    I'm not saying that is the base for the Lidl offering, but given the price point it would indicate a possible use in their product.
    And, yes, I am a bit of a whisky snob!

    Most cheap blends (Grouse, Teachers, etc) will be a blend of grain whisky and single malts. I don't think the Lidl whisky would be any different.

    I like my whiskey like I like my women, 18 years old and mixed up with coke.
