Highland Earl
« on: Nov 21, 2020, 05:08:43 PM »
I really enjoy a glass whisky in the evening. I have took a liking to Highland Earl a blended whisky made just for Aldi so quite cheap. But I wonder who makes it  ??? ??? ??? ???

I have tried malt whisky Raven but never found one I like. Just as well because I am only paying 15 ltr for this one.

Never tried Highland Earl.  I do keep a bottle of 'Famous Grouse' for mixing.

I've recently got a taste for "Sweet smoke" from the Isla Bay distillery  in Girvan.  My favourites - "The Glenlivit" 18 y.o and Lagavuilin 16 y.o have become ridiculously expensive of late.

Famous Grouse is what I get for Christmas and Birth day presents so I am pretty sure you will like this one but its an Aldi brand. I drink both neat.

Highland earl came out top of the blended whiskies.It is very reputable and going quickly up the league tables.Aldi is no longer considered cheap and nasty.

Cheap in price, but one of the best blended whiskies I have ever tried EM.


I see you have been a member of the PF for quite a spell EM long before the break away.

We have The "Wolfburn" Distillery up here in Thurso. After ceasing to operate in the 1860s it reopened in 2013. I love their mascot of the Sea Wolf that stands outside. According to ancient lore, the sea wolf 'did live both on sea and land. ' Walking on water is not its only gift, it also brings good luck to all those fortunate enough to see it. ;D ;D
