    Good discussion. I'll weigh in more when I can, but:

    Anyone tried the Glenfiddich Fire & Cane? It's apparently their only wide-distribution peated expression (what I heard is that their other peated whiskies were only available in duty free shops).

    I got one a couple days ago, and it ain't bad. Pretty different for them.

    Wife brought me a bottle of Old Pulteney Noss Head on her way back from England. Not bad, clean and sharp pretty straight forward but drinkable.

    An $18 Supermarket Whisky Was Just Named World's Best Scotch

    Thoughts? Anyone try that one?

    Can't say I've ever heard of Lidl or Queen Margot Scotch. Probably little wonder, as I live near none of their retail locations. Also, I wouldn't consider a blend to be world's best Scotch, unless it won a taste test with all single malts. Possible, as there are some good blends, but unlikely. I question the placement, after the article, of a video ad for an old fashioned, a drink containing no Scotch. I don't question that Queen Margot Scotch is good, but it is unlikely I will ever see it.

    Lidl is Aldi's closest competition on the hard discount food supermarket (yeah, it's not just about food, but it's their core business) in Continental western Europe, and Lidl about twice as good as Aldi in terms of quality/price - both are German firms, BTW, and have legally limited surface >> in other words they cannot open huge hypermarkets. Both are low-end quality food chainstores, but in recent years, Lidl has done improvements.

    Yet, I still wouldn't even try the Margot blended scotch.

    Yes, my reaction was one of incredulity that an 8-year old blended scotch could garner such a rating of course. But it it's cheap and good, what the hell.

    I scanned the story the other day too. Did they say it was the best blended Scotch or simply, best Scotch?

    According to another source it won best blended scotch 12 years and under.

    Ah now it makes sense - fake whisky news.

    Being in the American West, I had not heard of Aidl or Lidl before. The nearest city has a few large liquor supermarkets. Some of them seem to have their own brands of liquor, in addition to the world brands they can stock. I guess there are brands that don't distribute out here. If their sales depend on fake whisky news, I won't miss them.

    To change the subject slightly, from Scotch to Irish, it's the time of year (St Patrick's Day) when Irish whiskey and stout are sold for lower prices for a week or a month. So I decided to try an Irish whiskey I had never had. The Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey.



    Good stuff.
