We can't actually ship Crabbie's Yardhead to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

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

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.

Possibly the worst malt whisky I've ever tasted. Taste more like a (bad) blended whisky.

Offer it to unwanted guests

Consistently awful throughout the years judging by the reviews. The worst single malt I have ever had. I don't know much about whiskey to tell exactly what's wrong. To me it's just impossible to drink it without mixing it with something else to kill the awful taste. I don't do this even to cheap blends. Literally had chills on my back after the first sip.

Not Great

Not great for a malt-seems very young, but I guess could be improved by longer in wood. Reminds me of the first English Distillery Whiskey from Norfolk, which is now improving with time. I suppose reasonable value at the £16 I paid in Morrisons.

This has got to be the worst single malt I have ever tasted. Don't waste your money and buy a bottle of the cheapest blended whisky you can find and you will be far more pleased.

Disgusting tastes like it was made and bottled a few weeks ago
Harsh ,sharp ,no nice taste to it at all
The supermarket cheapo own blended stuff is nicer
Avoid this

Still the best taste for me over two years already. The new red 12 old, not the peated one is really more sophisticated, but not as sharp as I like it to be. Congratulations Sir Crabbi! Forever in my heart.
