Walkers Glenfiddich Mincemeat Tarts

The Review

Baked with melt in the mouth all butter pastry and luxury mincemeat flavoured with Glenfiddich Whisky

‘My initial thoughts weren’t favorable, the tart was dry in appearance although had a good weight to it. There was a strong smell of Glenfiddich which put me off before I’d tasted it. However I was pleasantly surprised after tasting it, although I ate it cold I think these pies would benefit from being heating and served with vanilla ice cream. There was a lingering aftertaste of Glennfiddich which I needed to wash away with a cup of tea. Not recommended for mince pie virgins.’ – Paul

‘First impressions of this luxury mince ‘tart’ were poor. Upon opening the box I was greeted with what can only be described as a awful whiskey scent cloud. However after the smell had dispersed the taste and texture was not that disappointing, on reflection a  fairly good mince pie with substantial filling.’ – Adam

‘Pastry dry, crunchy raisens, bad after taste and smells bad, yuks!’ – Su

    A friend gave me some of your mince pies, they were delicious. I live in Devon, so I would like to know where I can purchase some.

    If I am unable to purchase these delightful mince pies locally could I please have your Scottish address?

    Hello S Harder,

    We’re just a review site so they’re not actually our pies, however you should be able to buy Walkers Glenfiddich Mincemeat Tarts at any good super market, or local convenience store. This will need to be during the Mince Pie season which starts around mid October, but does get earlier every year so you could get lucky. As for finding them in Devon, this shouldn’t a problem as these Scottish Pies have travelled even further south, across the English Channel to the shores of Guernsey when you’ve probably seen on the Spotlight evening news.

    I wish you luck in your quest and please send us a review if and when you taste these pies again. If you happen to be visiting London at Christmas time be sure to hunt down some Konditor & Cook Mince Pies for the ultimate experience.

    Now, I’m making my breakfast with these lovely mincemeat tarts and 2 oz of JD Silver Select. Weather is chilly outside and these couple of tastes makes love, not war!

    I liked the smell of Scotch, so if you don’t then I’d suggest buying something else.

    Also the pastry and mincemeat were good and overall it was a very enjoyable experience.

    Someone brought them in to work and everyone else who had one thought they were the business too.

    Not quite up to homemade shortcrust ones, so only 9/10, but the best shop-bought ones I’ve had in ages…

    I bought 2 boxes to take away at Christmas to our Cyprus home. I noticed the sell by date was march 2012 and I had purchased them around about beginning of Dec.
    The first box was fine because it was opened in Dec. BY Jan 11th when we opened the other box the mince pies were hard to get out of the casings. The aluminium casings had developed holes. Maybe it was the whiskey content but we had to throw them away. Why on earth was there such a long sell by date on them. I will never buy any more.
