Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is light and well-balanced. There are notes of malted barley and honey, a touch of spice and fresh fruit salad. The palate is of medium-body with notes of calvados and barley, a touch of honey and mixed peels and notes of oak. The finish is quite long with oak and caramel.

User Reviews of the Antiquary 12 Year Old

Tony Barnes

Was given a tip by a friend, told that it is hard to find but well worth it. Wife got me a bottle for Xmas 2015, only have a double once a month, a very special indulgence to be drunk on it's own, no ice (I have marble ice cubes that chill but don't dilute or influence the taste), no additives, no sharing. As yet (and I am 65yrs old), this is the only whisky I would confidently recommend to a whisky drinker, knowing that it will be a remarkable addition to their 'whisknology'.

A fine blend

Malty. Long finish with hints if citrus, honey and vanilla. Some pepper onbthe finish. However it is a nice mouthful of chewy malt. A nice 12 year old.

Great Scotch

Smooth Scotch whisky with a good burn and light after tones. A well balanced refreshment.

attractive shape of the bottle, stylish bottle shape

nose is OK, but first sip is a bit sharp and having no enticing taste, but the second glass and further, till the bottom of the bottle are fantastic. I' m a Polish, leaving in PL, more accustomed to vodka ( what we call potato juice), but since I started 12 tears The Antiquary it can be my favorite (good Scotch is my hobby)

Great for the price. Has it's pluses and minuses.

Got it for under $30, and it is definitely better than a lot of other Scotches in that range. The nose and entry are the weakest points. Nose is a bit rough and sour. Grainy for sure. Entry reminds me of your average cheap blended scotch, but once it's on the tongue there is a wonderful mix of wood, white grapes, vanilla and slight spice. The finish is the best part. Outstanding in fact. Lingers for a very long time with a balanced toffee sweetness and maybe some creamy coffee.

Antiquary found again

I used to buy several cases of 12 at a time of this exceptional whisky. I look forward to my French friends enjoying it.

25th November 2012


its not bad for a blend, i can get the barley.... sugar honey... struggling with a fruit salad? remnants of calvados (unless you've tasted a good one) not to knock a winner; shoot a grouse instead... plenty oak but no pete, sorry peat, no offence!
