Look for Glen Marnoch on a map and you will search in vain. There is no distillery of that name, nor an actual glen. If it existed it would stretch all the way from Speyside to Islay via the Highlands – these being the three non-age statement expressions that have appeared in the Aldi-owned brand’s range.
As well as the three standard ‘limited edition’ single malts, Glen Marnoch has also been bottled as a 12- and 18-year-old Highland, and an 18-, 24- and 28-year-old Speyside. This is scandalous and Aldi should be taken to task by Trading Standards”
