    Haven't tried either of these yet, but I have tried the speyside and the Highland from the aldi range, very decent for the price, a few of the guys on here have given the Islay a go and have enjoyed them.

    I think his original whisky is 35-40 I think but this is the newest one in the range.

    Thanks [MENTION=13439404]mcdee[/MENTION] I shall look out for it. Off for a few scoops with pals tonight so might be the opportunity to sample a dram or 2.
