Excellent Experience!

Really enjoyed our chat with the representative at Rattray’s. He was very knowledgeable and informative - also sold us an excellent bottle of whisky!! What’s not to like.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review and for your kind words. We really appreciate it.

An Astonishing whisky for an unbelievable price.

Every year when I visit Girvan and the surrounding area, I take a trip to the distillery. I often sample some new whisky and take a bottle back home to Yorkshire with me. This year, the distillery was closed, but I couldn't leave without ordering a bottle. I ordered this as I have been a big fan of whisky aged in bourbon barrels recently, and hoped it would be okay having not sampled it.

As the review title tells you, I am blown away by this one.

By far my favourite whisky in 5 years of purchasing from A.D. Such a rich flavour and the smokiness is just the right level of intensity. The cask strength gives it a pleasing warmth and after taste and the smell is so inviting when you first pour.

I wholeheartedly recommend.

Dear Chris,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review and for your kind words. I am delighted you are enjoying our Cask Islay Bourbon Edition. Hopefully we will be back open for your next visit.

Late delivery.

Sorry to say DPD has let your service down.Three days late and have just received another email saying there are further delays.Not your fault,and I really enjoy your whisky range,but having to wait around as the delivery date continually changes,is somewhat annoying.

Dear Sam,

We are very sorry that the delivery to you via DPD has been problematic. We strive to offer the very best service to our customers but unfortunately we are at the mercy of our couriers when parcels leave us. We are finding that there has been an impact on our delivery times due to the nationwide shortage of drivers with some of our parcels now taking the full 5 working days delivery time that we quote. We are working with DPD and our other couriers to maintain a good service for our customers but I am sorry we have missed the mark for you on this occasion. I am pleased you are enjoying our whiskies and hope that if you order from us again, you will have a much better experience.

Very good service

The site was easily navigated, the whisky I ordered as a gift arrived within 3 days so I can’t review the whisky but I’m sure it is very good

Dear David,

Thank you for your positive feedback and for taking the time to post this review. We really appreciate it and hope that the gift recipient enjoys their whisky.

Christmas Stocking filler!

Ive already started my Christmas shopping and this is the perfect stocking or under the tree present for all the men in your life. I have bought they before and they are always received with great enthusiasm. Perfect for the whiskey beginner in deciding their favourite tipple.

Dear Tanya,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review of our Little Dram Sets. We definitely agree, they make wonderful stocking fillers. And good for you getting ahead start on your Christmas shopping!

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!

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

Dear Wladyslaw,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review. We really appreciate it! We are at the mercy of the courier network but strive to provide the very best service we can. Really pleased your bottle arrived earlier than expected and we look forward to your review after you try it.

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.

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,
