Whisky Reviews for The Antiquary 12-year-old

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.43 points

  1. Totoro scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Incredibly nice blend, seems at least a couple of years older that its stated age. Good-quality casks, very good value for money. I'd prefer this over, say, Johnnie Walker Black, or the Dewar's 18-year-old any day.
