Redbreast 12 has always been a christmas favourite of mine - £40 in the sales in the UK ... i just wish the cask strength was as reasonably priced here as in the US (£80-90 here )

Nose Dark fruits with cinnamon dashed baked pear and custard Raisins and fresh fig

Palate A thick creamy body with orange peel and raisins. Cinnamon plays a major role here alongside wood spice and baked pear. White biscuit much like that found on either side of a cream biscuit- nice for those in the uk. And a dash of vanilla ice cream

The finish is long and creamy. Butter, raisins and pear which seems to be a staple of this particular dram

This is an exceptional pot still whiskey which matches the dreaded ‘smooth’ness with character. Chef’s suggest that certain taste profiles go with eachother whilst others dont... this whiskey delivers with profiles that match and compliment eachother which in my opinion is a rare thing to find.

@conorrob - I think your score is about where I'd have put this, for what it's worth. I found it to be very enjoyable and a good example of pot still whiskey. I also hate to tell you that I picked up a 12 CS for c£70 on Amazon over xmas. Sorry! blush I agree though, £85-90 is way too much and I wouldn't have paid that.
