They would legally have to age it according to the youngest whisky in the bottle, but to call it a '3yr whisky' would be inaccurate. Hence the lack of an age statement. Some NAS whiskies are fantastic, and not worth ruling out - see Glen Scotia Double Cask.


People who instantly say a whisky is rubbish just because it's a NAS are clueless.

Thanks Moderator, your assistance is greatly appreciated
Good they don't call it scotch! No age so cold for me! Also expect more of these. Offers with Trump Levying 25% for US scotch imports
Picked up last one in sleaford earlier. Love this stuff

Dont rule a whisky out cause it has no age statement

Yes there are quite a lot of bad ones, hiding young whisky at an over inflated price but there are some gems out there too

Here are some NAS whiskies i have really enjoyed as much as any age statement whisky at their price points

Glen Scotia Double Cask
Laphroiag Quarter Cask
Tomatin Legacy
Douglas Laing Rock Oyster
Douglas Laing The Epicurian
Compass Box The Spice Tree
Tamdhu cask strength
Glenmorangie a Mid Winters Night dram
Glenlivet Nadurra (Peated cask and First Fill)
Arran Sherry cask
Aberlour A'bunadh

Note: A'bunadh should be avoided now due to the massive price increase they put on it !

Some others to consider that are decent enough

Any Glen Moray NAS
Talisker Storm
Naked Grouse
Sheep Dip
Bruichladdie The Classic Laddie
Deanston Virgin Oak


And dont forget your Bourbons. Most bourbons under £30 dont have age statements and there are loads there i really enjoy.

As for the Ardmore posted. Its okay as a £20 whisky. Nothing bad here but not my favorite but for £18 you may like it a lot so HEAT from me

Good list. To that I'd add the couple of Bunnahabhain NAS I've had (I'm not going to attempt to spell them) and some Irish whiskies (The Irishman, Writers Tears), maybe even a Japanese one (The Chita when it comes on offer?).
I'd also say I've never tasted a bad Compass Box whisky - they know there stuff.
I've had some terrible age-statement whiskies mind.

You know what i forgot Irish whiskies.

Writers Tears i loved. I left the last 3rd of the bottle for ages and when i picked it back up it was amazing.

Green Spot is super as well.

I really need to start heading up the price tree of some irish whiskies and see what else is out there.

Got a bottle of Dingle coming for my birthday as my parents visited the distillery on holiday (but had to get the whisky at local shop as the distillery cannot sell to the public...whats that all about )

The worst whisky ( and the biggest disapointment in whisky) i have had was a whisky with a signifcant age statement. Over powering sulphur that drowned anything else that might have been in the bottle. Think i got a bad batch as this distillery is well known for inconsitent bottles. I know others say they do great whiskies, but that one bottle has made me very wary of them.

Stand up:

Glenfarclas 15 year old.

I'm surprised, I've enjoyed every bottle of Farclas I've had, you're right it might have been the bottle?
An old whisky I didn't particularly like would be the Chivas Regal 18.
Good shout for the Green Spot, and I've a mate who loves the Yellow Spot (I've tasted it and it is beautiful mind).

I really like the Irish stuff, love the "pear drop" taste you often get.

And i quite liked Chivas 18. Would i pay £50 a bottle for it , no way. Got it on deal at £35 but not sure i would revisit even at that price. Glad i brought it , enjoyed it but didnt love it enough to buy again (except on super duper discount)

Shows taste is very subjective and you should not rule a whisky out cause of NAS.

Agreed, I have tasted all the NAS you mention, bar 1 the sheep dip, and there is not a bad one amongst them. Compass box spice tree is a favourite of mine.
