About This Single Pot Still Whiskey

Adam’s Notes

I finally managed to find an excuse to crack open this bottle… Christmas! After all, Redbreast is often described as the quintessential Christmas dram. Although, whatever you’re celebrating this winter – this might well be the perfect bottle for the occasion. In my videos for this year’s sale, I gave the Redbreast a shoutout as being top of my list for whiskies at The Strath that I wanted to try – and boy did it not disappoint. Find out more about this wonderful single pot still Irish whiskey, including my first impressions in the video below.

Only existing premium members are invited to come and try this special whisky in-store for free – but it’s on a 10% discount for all members during its run. Please note that signing up after Dec 11th does not qualify you for this dram – you’ll have to wait until January’s premium dram.

How We Review Whiskies

Score

Whiskies are rated by our members on the visuals (out of 5), aroma (out of 25), taste (out of 40), & finish (out of 30). With a total score out of 100.

Based on how scoring occurred for our early reviews, the following guide is given to members –

0-60 awful • 60-70 bad • 70-80 okay • 80-85 good • 85-90 great • 90-95 awesome • 95+ amazing

The individual scores are collected, and outliers are removed via the “agreeable group” statistical method to reduce bias and taste preferences (ie, people who score a peated whisky lowly because they don’t like peat). This gives us a better idea of the overall quality of the whisky in the eyes of our members.

 

Flavour Profile

Along with scoring the whisky, members are invited to choose up to three of the below flavour profiles which they think match the whisky. The profile that is most commonly chosen is then the official flavour profile for the dram.

fresh & floral
eg – blossoms, cut grass, apples, pears

fruity & spicy
eg – peach, vanilla, coconut, nutmeg

malty & dry
eg – breakfast cereal, nuts, cookies

rich & round
eg – raisins, figs, oak tannins, dates

smoky & earthy
eg – wood smoke, bacon, iodine

 

Dram Association Nickname

The nickname is usually given by the writer of the initial review and tasting notes. It is based on their tasting notes and used to refer to the whisky to keep its true identity hidden for those who enjoy blind tasting.
