Glen Marnoch 28 Year Old
I've got a large collection of supermarket malt samples to get through, but recently I had this 2016 release of a 28 year old Speyside single malt from Aldi, courtesy of a sample from my good friend Barry at The Whiskyphiles blog.
For under £40 a 28 year old single malt sounds initially like an absolute bargain, but is it?
The nose, Like the Ben Bracken 27, is actually pretty good, sweet, christmas cake , and inticing, the palate feels better, matching the nose much more, but the finish once again lets it down, as it disappears as quickly as it arrives.
Slightly better than Lidl's effort, and £10 cheaper, this is more of an easy sipper, but for that price, and that age, I want more.
Thanks again to Barry from The Whiskyphiles for the Sample (and picture)
plum skins, prunes, puff of cask char, lots of dried fruits and hints of Christmas cake, really inticing
Sweet juicy fresh fruity fresh mint, menthol and a touch of spice
Sweet, touch of cinnamon and gone quick
