Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Yellow bananas, dates and parma ham, warm copper, Christmas cake and a little sherry hit.
Palate: Big, dried fruit and aromatic spices. Jaffa cakes, fresh vanilla pods. Sweet creamy oak.
Finish: Warming and massively complex, a touch of butterscotch.
Comment: Serious stuff, actually just stunning and a very welcome addition to the growing pot still canon.
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Oily, fruit cake mix, honey and sherry.
Palate: Mouth-coating, unctuous, with vanilla, rich spice, Jaffa oranges and dried fruits.
Finish: Long and fruity, with sherry, grain and ginger notes.
Comment: Redbreast is one of the world's great whiskeys. Delicious!
