“A bit light and with a simple but promising nose. Unfortunately the rest of the whisky isn't up to the level, but serious you can't ask much more for that price. It doesn't feel like 24 years old whisky.”
But although it is sold as 24 years old and had an incredible price, you can find better drams for that price without the glossy 24 years old age statement.
This dram has a amber-like color.
Nose (89): more than average. honey, raisins, wood, spices. Not a bad nose, but simple. It doesn't smell of old at all.
Palate (85): powerful. honey, spices, floral, pepper. A bit light. Perhaps bottling it at 46% would have done the trick. Not sure Aldi customers would mind about it either.
Finish (85): average. honey, spices, citrus.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Glen Marnoch 24 Year Old (Aldi) with 86 points over 100.
