Cask Islay
Howard Foster
Excellent Islay Whisky

Finally got round to tasting this ( big collection !). The tasting notes are pretty accurate. It is everything you would expect from an Islay whisky and at 46%, natural colour and non chill filtered it is excellent value for money. Would definitely buy another bottle.

Dear Howard,

Thank you for taking the time to post this review about our Cask Islay. We are delighted you are enjoying it and the fact you would buy another bottle is the ultimate praise - thank you!

exemplary ordering and delivery service

the knowledgeable service and exemplary safe packaging + prompt secure delivery by DPD were very reassuring .... the surprise additional sample of Ardmore 9 yer old will provide an exciting contrast ..... i will contemplate the bottle and share with best friends in due course.. ( memories of the BFFD 2019 smugglers edition bode well ) thanks for the exciting local collaboration

Dear Howard,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review and for your kind words. I am delighted you are enjoying our whiskies and are happy with our service. And I hope you and your friend enjoy sharing the bottle.

Nectar

Fruity and subtle. Can't go wrong here.

Dear Andrew,

Thank you for your review of our Tamnavulin - really pleased you are enjoying it.

The best service

Described delivery service 3-5 working days. I have received mine next day after buying... what can makes you more happy if not your order arrived few days earlier?...
Great Job Guys... Will add another review when open bottle.... Thank you.. Cheers

First order from A. D. Rattray

Fantastic service, lovely Whisky. My wallet is going to take a hit (but not that bad, as prices are great as well).

Dear Steve,

Thank you for your positive feedback and for taking the time to post this review. We really appreciate it... even if you wallet doesn't !

Brilliant Tamnavulin

Absolutely loved this bottling, a great expression from a distillery that I have avoided generally due to the generic supermarket bottlings.

Ignore the 1 star review, purely based on delivery (why review this product if not received? Daft) from other user, this whisky is fantastic, but I’m yet to have a bad Ratray bottle...

Cheers!

Dear James,

Thank you for your positive feedback and for taking the time to post this review about our Tamnavulin. We really appreciate your kind words and ongoing support.

25 year old delight.

You’ve done it again! The Cameronbridge 25 is absolutely delicious. I did find that a tiny drop of water helped open it up, but I’m amazed you can do it for the price. Thank you all at A. D. Rattray.

Dear Jeffrey,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review about our Cameronbridge 25YO. We are delighted with your feedback.

Islay Cask Strength

Tremendous bottling by Rattary. At 46% it is a lovely half. Well done 👍

Dear Robert,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review on our Cask Islay. We are really pleased you are enjoying it.

Exceptional taste

I think this is now my favorite whiskey, I love the sweet honey taste and goes down smooth as you like
I am a whiskey collector and have various whiskies that I have tried and some not as very expensive but I certainly will be
buying this one to drink

Dear John,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review of our Stronachie 10 Year Old. I am delighted you are enjoying it.

Not arrived yet 😕

Bottle not arrived, now 5 days late. Charged £15 for two phone calls to DPD to progress delivery by my mobile phone provider. Have emailed AD and await a response.

Previous experience of AD delivery was v good.

Dear Mark,

We are very sorry that your order did not arrive in the time expected. Your parcel had been routed onto the wrong delivery van by DPD and subsequently was held at their depot. As soon as we were notified of this, we dispatched another bottle to you, rather than have any further delay while retrieving the original parcel. We strive to provide a high standard of service to all our customers, however there are time that things do go wrong and when that happens, we always make sure to put things right. Again, please accept our sincere apologies that this has happened, and we hope that you are now enjoying your bottle of Tamnavulin.

Amazing service

I’ve used AD Rattray about six times, and they have been excellent. Delivery was real quick and their whiskies are the best money can buy. Brilliant.

Dear John,

Thank you so much for your very kind words and continued support. We really appreciate it!

Super quick free delivery

Always impresses with customer service. Not actually tried the malt but every other malt I’ve ordered has been fantastic.

Dear Chris,

Thank you for reviewing our Warehouse Collection Tobermory. I am delighted you are happy with our service and hope you enjoy the whisky once you get time to try it.

Ordered this from the new cask collection no 63. Arrived promptly. Very well packaged. I like the bottle shape which sits very well with the presentation box. All in all I am very happy with my purchase and I haven't even opened the bottle yet!

Dear Ian,

Thank you for reviewing our Invergordon 1988. I am delighted you are happy with your purchase and hope that you also enjoy the whisky once you get time to try it.

Craigallachie 10yr old

Normally only buy the 13yr old but to see the 10yr old is a nice change. Perhaps a wee bit more strength at 43% or 46% but none the less an excellent nip.

Dear Robert,

Thank you for reviewing our House Malt Craigellachie 10YO. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback.

Glenrothes 9yr old

Another excellent buy. Unusual age at very decent price. Long may it continue.

Dear Robert,

Thank you for reviewing our House Malt Glenrothes 9YO. We really appreciate it!

Brilliant, as always

Fantastic service, as I have come to expect. Setting the gold standard in my opinion for modern whisky.

This is my first time buying a personalised bottle, and I will certainly be doing it again. The same quality I have come to expect from the other products Ratray offer. Cheers!

Cask Islay
Howard Foster
First Class

What a great company. Ordered my whiskey and arrived very promptly the next day. Nicely packaged and love the sample that you get which looks excellent and can’t wait to try it. Such a nice touch. Will leave another review when I have sampled both the Cask Islay and the sample of Ardmore 9 year old at a cool 59% ABV. When I am next up in Ayrshire I really look forward to visiting the Whiskey Experience but this is definitely an on line shop that I will be using again. Just excellent...!

Dear Howard,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review and for your kind words. I am delighted you are happy with our service and look forward to reading your thoughts on the whiskies you have selected, once you get time to enjoy them. And we really hope we can welcome you in person to our shop when that is possible.

Stronachie 10 Year Old
Davaidh Macleod
A quite outstanding 10 y.o. Speyside

I don't remember how I 'found ' Stronachie but boy am I glad I did. For it is simply the best 10 y.o. I have ever tasted, and is in my top five whiskies of all time. I am a tour guide for the American market and visit a lot of distilleries all over Scotland, so although not 'an expert' I have learnt a lot in the last six years. I have repeat ordered this whisky (along with Royal Brackla 12) more times than any other and all friends and others who have tasted it agree with my praise of it. I am just going to order another couple of bottles (one as a thank you present).
Finally thank you to A D Rattray for your unstinting quest for perfection (someone has to do it after all!) and thank you to Benrinnes Distillery for producing (and of course all the other distilleries in Scotland) such a wonderful nectar.
My observation on Stronachie: Light , sweet, malty, amazingly smooth with a finish that lingers gently and helps to set you up for the next one.

Dear Davaidh,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review about our Stronachie malt. We are delighted you are enjoying it! Thank you for your kind words and for recommending it to others.

Great whisky!

Brilliant example of the orkney style at a good price (Both compared to anything from HP around that age and other 18 year old whiskies). Highly Recommend!

Dear Chay,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review on our Cask Orkney. I am really pleased you are enjoying it.

Unbelievable

This whiskey for the price is insane. The intense smoke favour really reminds me of some of the official release cask strength Lagaluvins. Perhaps it is Lagaluvin? Anyway would recommend this to anyone, and especially at this price! I might need to pick up another...

Dear Benjamin,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review on our Cask Islay Bourbon Edition. I am really pleased you are enjoying it.

Cask Islay

Excellent. Prompt delivery. Well packaged. As always. Great price. Very tasty. Will get some more. Especially if Scotland keep winning the rugby!! Bourbon cask perhaps next. Thanks. Look forward to the wee bonus too

Dear Jwb,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review on our Cask Islay. We really appreciate it! And fingers crossed for Scotland in the Rugby!!
