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

Really not good...

I received a bottle of Crabbie's Yardhead for Xmas from my brother-in-law and each year we swap whiskeys we believe the other has not tried. I have given this whiskey two shots so far and both were very bleh, at least for my pallet. Almost a sour taste without any real smoke, peat, etc. Nothing particularly interesting or special for me and it just tastes like cheap blends I've had in the past. I have a dozen bottles of various types on my shelf right now and this is easily the one I'm least likely to pickup. I may try it as a mix ... but I have some pretty solid mix whiskeys which are the same price or cheaper...

Very good Single Malt Scotch Whisky

One of the best single malts out of Scotland I have tried. Here in Canada we have several distillers who have perfected the building of single malt whiskies that would challenge even the best from Scotland. I am still glad I purchased this because it has a distinct taste that I find very enjoyable. Congratulations Crabbie's.

Perfect for Crabbies Whisky Mac

I was told to buy Crabbies Ginger Wine instead of supermarket brand to try a whisky mac. Found Yardhead, read the back of the bottle bought it and POW! Whisky Mac.

I won't drink it ahead of my other malts, but it's a better mixer than most cheap Whisky.

A good mixer

I thought that this was a decent whiskey for the price. Johnny Red is every bit as good and cheaper again. Either are great for cocktails, especially rusty nails!

A taste of Leith

Easy drinking with a chunk of ice BUT the real way to enjoy it is as a hot toddy.. how? Heated small mug, add a teaspoon of honey, a nip of Crabbies Green Ginger, a nip of Yardheid (Leith speak) top off with boiling water... keeps the cauld oot!..

Great cold cure

Great for a homemade Lemsip!

2 generous teaspoons of honey, a double measure of yardhead a good squeeze of half a lemon and top up the mug with boiling water. Perfect!

Awful. Avoid.

This is on the level of Bells. Among the worst I’ve ever had. Borderline undrinkable neat and a cheaper whisky would work just as well with a mixer.

A nice solid base for whisky and ginger ale.

This whisky is marketed as a mixer, so I don't understand the complaints that it tastes awful. Admittedly it's pretty bland neat, but then the makers themselves recognise this and it really does come into its own when mixed with ginger beer and a slice of lemon. As a base for a whisky Mac it's good enough and given the low price quite a bargain too. Straight though and it's the pits but then its marked up as to be mixed so can't complain.

Not brilliant, lacks any real taste.

Really poor. Tastes like a blend base. Very little flavour. Bought because it was cheap. Not good. Probably okayish to add to other things, as Crabbies did with their Ginger Wine. On its own, nah.
