Glen Marnoch 24 Bottling Note

Glen Marnoch - Aldi (yes, Aldi!)'s 24 year old single malt whisky! We tasted this alongside the sterling Glenbridge 40 year old in a tasting led by none other than whisky legend Jim Murray. This was distilled in 1987 and bottled in 2011…

We’re sadly sold out of this, but if you’re after a bottle of Scotch then feel free to browse our site single malt whisky.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Red apples, bourbon, gristy, vanilla. Heat brings out more bourbon and rye spice.

Palate: Lean, slightly bitter, not a huge deal of depth. An enormous hit of almost Saccharine sweetness before the rye spice develops into a slightly acrid note?

Finish: Acrid saccharine turns slightly alkali, and slightly mouth-watering (not in a good way). Becomes really very off-putting at the death.

Wow! What a surprise. A cracking whisky for under 20 quid.
Dunno what the nay sayers are complaining about. I gotta get another bottle of this whisky that bends the knee to no other.

I have had many single malts from Scotland and Ireland, some I like very much, the glen marnoch comes in the range that I like. Waiting for another delivery at aldi!! Still, their other singles are pretty good (except the really cheap blended bottles which are passable when mixed).

I loved it, great price from Aldi

Exellent whisky

Bought this whiskyin 2013 and still sipping it today. Really nice fruity flavour to it and you can smell the appels when you opens the cork.

Nowt wrong here

It's back in my local Aldi. Bought a 24 year old and an 18 year old. Just having a glass of the 24 year old now, and it's a decent drop of whisky, not up there with the best obviously, but certainly worth £50.

I had 3 bottles of Glen Monarch 24 yr old whisky. It went rather quick. Very smooth and fantastic taste. My son does not like whisky until he tried iMonarch 24. A pity it's all gone.?

There is not a bad Malt, just ones that don't suit everyone!!

I had it bought as a gift and I thought it was similar to Fettercairn in character, not one that I would go out of my way to buy but quite drinkable. I have just been bought a bottle of the Speyside malt and the Speyside Bourbon at £18 and £19 respectively so will be interesting to see what these two are like.

Pulled a cork on a bottle before Xmas. Loved it!. I have spent twice as much in the past on whisky which wasn't as good. I highly recommend this if you can still find a bottle. At £50 it is a BARGAIN.

This whisky is extremely poor, not worth an outlay of £20 never mind £50 or more. Just does nothing!

Mr David Brown

I received a bottle of Glen Marnoch for Christmas and have just emptied it, with the wife's help, I must say that we enjoyed it. It's not the best scotch in the world, but I enjoyed it very much. Sad to see it go.

Mr McGregor

As a single malt drinker of over fifty, I suggest the idiot who wrote this review wouldn't know the difference between a good whisky and a bottle of bleach. He is obviously in the wrong job because at £50 this smooth single malt ranks up in the premier league of whiskies.

Mr thompson

Whoever wrote "unpleasant 5th june has something wrong around the mouth area. Even the most harsh of whisky from a rogue distillery would not get such a review. This is clearly a swipe at Aldi rather than the whisky. Person has no Spirit!!!

26th January 2015

Forget the 'experts' opinion...this is fine.

This stands up very well to some of the more expensive brands, but as with many things it shouldn't simply come down to cost (not that I saw it at £92 a bottle at the local Aldi) it comes down to drinking enjoyment, and this provides that.

I can only assume that those who reviewed it got out of bed on the wrong side that morning. This is an enjoyable single malt. Not clever, not overly complex and certainly no hint of 'acrid' about it.

Sample it and enjoy.

Mr Phil Roberts

My wife bought me a bottle for my 65th birthday.
I absolutely loved it. A beautiful finish and after taste.
Strongly recommend it.

'Master of Malt' could you be more contradictory?

"We’re sadly sold out of this" and "£92.10" are your introductions ...

... and then such a negative review underneath.

If you really disliked it that much, why are you "sadly' sold out and why were you selling it at around twice the price it was available at Aldi?? Surely if you thought it was so poor, you wouldn't have bought stock and if you had somehow got hold of stock you would sell it at a discount not massive premium if so bad?

Or is the first part of the page just rubbish? which means we should trust the rest of your review :)

11th December 2014

What utter nonsense some people say

I've had better for more than twice the price and worse for more than twice the price. Not as much depth as some, yes, but nicely rounded and not at all "acrid". Utter tosh.

6th December 2014

Not for me

Having read the tasting note I definitely not be buying this offering.

27th November 2014


Soz, bought 17/9. Don't have a time machine. Blame the whiskey.

17th September 2014

Sub £30 bargain

Bought today, 19/09/2014 at Aldi Port Sunlight for £29.99. Excellent sipping whiskey, sorry MoM couldn't disagree more.

17th September 2014


I hadn't known the (Aldi) story behind the whisky and was surprised that a 24 year old single malt tasted so - dare I say it - cheap. Harsh, acrid and without the depth or complexity I would expect of a malt of half the age. Not recommended.

This whisky was very good.. An excellent brand given tips price. I'm going back next week to see if Aldi' has more.

Glen Marnoch 24 yr old single malt

As always "each to his own". My view- wonderful!

19th April 2014

Still in stock in my local aldi...

Not at all bad local aldi Peterborough still has this and 18 yo in stock.... Obviously not rocketed off the shelf at Xmas.

It's certainly not a great whiskey, but the review makes it sound rubbish it is certainly not. I am lucky enough to have similarly aged whiskey in my collection and this does feel a bit washed out compared to those. Would assume not grade a to hit to bottle of the brand. Sort of similar to tomintoul 21 in term of big apple flavours but not much else. Compared to a standard 35 bottle like a macallen gold in same price point this is better. Worth a try it's not al all bad. Personally the 18 is more to my liking 30 quid and bit more complex than 24 but not at all bad for the outlay..that said u can get glenfarclas 12 for this money and that's a whole lot better than this.

A great single malt , a great finish and what great value well done Aldi

glen marnoch 24yr old

Just picked up a Bootle fromAldi. Am pleasantly surprised, it may not be as complex as one might expect for a 24 yr old but its very nice. I get areal milk chocolate aroma and taste nice long finish too. Will give the 18yr old a go next.

12th November 2013

Good stuff and for 35 quid..... It's good get some...

This is a very very nice whiskey... It has the aged flavour profiles vanilla heat, hits of pepper on wood. It's is sweet but pleasant mellow older scotch.
There is apple and it's complex ok there are far better whiskey out there that are this age but for this price..... If your comparing it to s supermarket 10-12 year old for that price this gives you something very different for that price point. The 18 year old is also very good indeed... Don't knock it give it a go pleasantly surprising.

The 40 year old glen bridge is also great great stuff at fifty quid but hard to get it only managed to have a taste from a pals and yes it's not as good as a producers labeled stuff, and us likely to be casks brought by aldi which did not make the grade for them to bottle but... It's good stuff and worth the cash....

November 2013

it's back in stock in Aldi! It's drinking very well!

3rd November 2013

Decent price but expected more

I expected more from the flavour of this dram. There was virtually no depth or complexity to it and I have to agree with the notes from MOM. For this price there are better whiskies to be had; my advice would be to not be drawn in by the age like I was.

2nd November 2013

Mr Taylor

The chaps at master of malt, do you really know whisky? this whisky tastes like nothing of the above. Glorious tasting whisky and a fantastic price.

14th July 2013


Oh dear, it's from Aldi. Who cares because it actually tastes rather nice. Whoever wrote that about the 'finish' was a sad, snobby ****!

29th June 2013

Mr Mersey

Next time it comes in I am willing to give it a try!.


25th December 2012

Very good and rediculous price

this is a lot better than the review given by the "chaps at Master of Malt"....I actually prefer the 18 year old expression but this is very smooth and satisfying.and at under £30 it is, and was a steal....Aldi sold out pretty much immediately...I have put some down in my cellar.....and I do that often.(STRUTH)

26th November 2012

Good buy at a great price. Trouble is my wife loves it !!

This little tipple as a bit of a gem, Aldi shines through for selling this little baby.
