Budget supermarket Lidl’s own brand single malt whisky “nearing perfection”

The Daily Mail (I know, I’m sorry) reports on Lidl’s own brand 33 year old single malt whisky that has drawn praise from whisky connoisseurs:

A packet of nice honey-glazed ham here, a block of rather tasty Stilton there: everyone knows there are surprisingly good deals to be found in discount supermarkets such as Lidl and Aldi.

But sometimes these deals are less surprising, more jaw-dropping.

A whisky being sold in Lidl for under £40 a bottle has become the latest food and drink sensation, after experts claimed it is a ‘superstar’ spirit worth at least £100.

Whisky buffs are set to clear the 33-year-old Maxwell Single Malt Scotch Whisky off shelves of the budget chain, after reviews described it as ‘nearing perfection’ and ‘a whiskey that gives us all a reason to live’.

The little-known liquor, launched in the chain’s UK stores today, is set to become a collector’s item, according to reports.
