Aldi the German discount supermarket chain is to sell 3000 bottles of 30 year old scotch whisky called Glen Orrin across their Scottish stores in an effort to bring in more customers over the festive period. This is not the first time they have done this with a similar offer last year. The bottles will go on sale at 10am on the 9th of December and the blended whisky is expected to sell out within minutes. The discounted price of just £49.99 is around a third of what you would normally pay for a whisky aged 30 years. We at the Scottish Whisky Store have not got to the bottom of what exactly Glen Orrin whisky is a blend of however, it is believed to contain mostly Speyside whisky.
Whisky guru Jim Murray has already given his expert opinion of the whisky and comments that “This is a clean, charming blend from the old school of whisky. The grains have made a first-class job of drawing out the most lively vanillas and, when fully warmed in the hand, the delightfully sharp marmalade is at its zenith.”
As a whisky gift this is a cracker of a Christmas present at a real value price. With the popularity of quality whisky rising there is certain to be someone in your family who would appreciate it, and if you can’t make it to Aldi on the 9th December don’t worry we have plenty whisky gifts to buy online.
