The dram everyone was talking about last month!
This was released with much publicity by Aldi, a chain of supermarkets in the UK.
It’s well sherries with the usual array of dark fruits, Christmassy spices, Demerara, dates, walnuts.
The finish lets it down slightly I think compared to the nose and first few seconds of the palate.
For £100 whisky I’d be quite impressed, at £50 it’s remarkable vfm and surely being sold at a loss. As you can see, even the box and bottle are towards the upper end of the market and that costs money…
Many thanks to Stu for the sample!
