Crabbie's Yardhead Bottling Note

A no-age-statement single malt from Crabbie's! John Crabbie’s original premises were at Yardheads in Leith, hence the name of the whisky. As the brand new distillery gets up and running, Crabbie's has released this single malt from an undisclosed distillery for us to enjoy! A brilliant spirit to try out some whisky cocktails with - may we suggest a Highball?

Crabbie's Yardhead Reviews

Soft & drinkable - good introductory whisky.

Had a few neat drams of it this evening round a friends - enjoyed it - perfectly acceptable single malt.

Not great

After the first dram I nearly put it to the emergency reserve cluster at the back of the cupboard but persevered. I had a couple more and things improved slightly but not a lot. It's thin in both in colour and taste with very little character. Would be passable in cocktails and mixed drinks and you always have the 'single malt' bragging rights I guess. Not for me when I can get the likes of Old Pulteney and Glenmorangie for six or seven quid more.

Tasted like old toenails - smelt horrible tasted worse and would avoid at all cost - better whiskey out their for a bargain price

Disappointing, perhaps you get what you pay for.

Bland, with a taste of a sticky plaster, on a cut finger. One star because it’s cheap for a single malt.

No redeeming features whatsoever. A very smooth single malt. Always neat.

I was drawn to Crabbies Yardhead whisky as a discounted brand with an unusual bottle design, and the reputation of the Crabbies brand. It is now a firm favourite and I reuse the bottles in wine making and as candle holders.

Maybe not for ‘experts’ or box collectors.

I like this whisky very much and find some of the negative comments rather surprising. It is smooth, mellow and (thankfully) not smokey, peaty or oaky.
I have shared it with a number of friends and neighbours all of whom are whisky and water drinkers and nobody has turned their nose up at it. I am currently on my fourth bottle and anticipate buying many more.
I also approve of the absence of wasteful and unnecessary packaging (no box).

Good for the price.

Like many other reviewers I bought it because of price. I was pleasantly surprised. If I’d have blond tasted it I would have thought I was drinking a good, smooth blend not a single malt. Not a huge amount of character, but smooth and rounded.

Amazing choice for that price!

I really recommend to try it only with proper atmosphere...

It's rubbish!

More like a blend, nothing like a smooth single malt.

14th May 2021

Decent whisky, wouldnt put label by taste as sngle malt, more like blended or too young

Its drinkable but, its not one of those you want to enjoy with lots of flavours coming in your mouth, its just sweet and bit watery, by a colour it seems really light, which i wouldn’t expect from a good single malt, its more like a cheap blended whisky’s not a single malt, and even smell doesn’t seem rich, but for this price i would say its decent
