Have a google for Aloe jucunda and see if it matches up.

I'm no expert.......

Hi Habanerocat,

Thanks for the reply - having googled Aloe jucunda I do see strong similarities, though in the pictures I have seen, the spines appear red - mine are white. Could this just be an age effect as this is a young plant?

I think you may find this is Aloe juvenna, this is a young one but which has long extended growth when it gets older and is columnar. Aloe jucunda is a clumping flat rosette.

I think I agree with Liz: A. juvenna. A bit more growing may confirm it.
