Aldi Whisky – Glen Orrin Pure Malt Blended Scotch Whisky, 40% Alc/vol aged in oak. Distilled, Blended and Bottled in Scotland for ALDI stores.
This time Jim thought it would be a good idea to visit ALDI and check out their own brand Whiskies.
They had on show two blends, one aged 8 years and they also had a Pure Malt priced at only £10.99 and this was the one that was chosen for tonights tasting.

Nose…Slight perfumeand citrus notes, not too harsh.
Taste…Easy drinking with a little tingle, fruit boilings, but dry vanilla coming in, but not too complex.
Finish…Short to medium finish leaving you with a dry oakiness.
Nose…Fruity, light floral noteswith no spiciness
Taste…Heavy alcohol taste, nothing added ( maybe too pure ) nothing to enhance the flavour like sherry etc. but still enjoyable.
Finish…Short finish, leaving an oakiness aftertaste.
That was okay, not a bad wee vatted malt for the price and would go down well at a bar-b-q when someone is loking for a long drink, adding ice and soda would make it a refreshing dram.
This bottle at that price would make a few people buy this one rather than paying the same for an ordinery blend.
Do not let the ALDI label put you off this is not a bad wee Whisky.
