Wow, just wow!
So, just stick this disclaimer out there; my whiskey knowledge is based entirely on how it smells and how it tastes to me. I have no training nor expertise whatsoever. If like me you like smooth but full bodied whiskey then look no further. This stuff is wonderful. It smells incredible but the taste, my god. It's divine. I normally drink original Jameson's whiskey and love the stuff, this is a whole other level. There's no burn whatsoever, no peat or smokiness, there's no sharpness or bitter after taste. It's simply smooth, full bodied in the mouth and tastes fantastic. Don't know what else I can add. Lovely stuff.
The water of life
For many years, despite being Irish myself, I would have loudly proclaimed the superiority of Scotch whisky over Irish whiskey, citing comparisons like the rough reek of Bushmills vs the smooth caramel of Ballantines. In recent years, the distillery at Midleton, Co. Cork has upped its game tremendously and has been putting out high-quality bottlings like Caskmates and Black Barrel in the crowded sub-£30 market. This, however, is on a totally different level. Finally, I understand whiskey's appeal: the marriage of ghostly, delicate smoothness, utterly bereft of burn, with full-bodied nutty treacley richness is a very addictive combination. The unmalted grain used in the mash imparts a buttery note, and the finish in sherry casks gives those trademark late-hitting cocoa undertones that make this a very fine dram indeed. This is one of the finest drops I've ever tried, but buyer beware: it can lay waste to your wallet, being extremely moreish, and not too cheap even on offer! Well worth it though, I recommend this without reservation to all interested in the water of life, from neophytes to hardened fanatics.
The best irish whiskey, hands down
If I had to pick any whisk(e)y in the world that I could only ever buy again, this would be it. It is without doubt the best I've tasted. It's a full bodied pot still with a hard to describe thick creamy taste that lasts for ages. At 40%, there's zero alcohol burn and goes down incredibly easy. Greenspot is one which people compare this to, but I find them very different. Greenspot has a more green apple note than this. If you haven't tried Redbreast 12, do yourself a favor and get yourself a bottle. I always keep a new one hidden away for when the open one runs dry!

Tried this at a posh restaurant and it’s amazing
First time I had this it was at a posh restaurant.. so this isn’t a cheap tasting rum. With cola it’s amazing - and on its own it’s just as good if not better. I’ve had many people try it and everyone loves it. It’s probably my favourite rum! It has a sweet yet bitter almost old taste - maybe it’s a placebo effect but honestly it’s what I imagine the peaky blinders to drink!
Blue glass this time- confirmed pukka by Sadlers!
The Pesky Blinders gin is fantastic, we love it! I was confused as I received a blue-tinged bottle from Amazon, but Sadlers have confirmed that a batch was made with bluish glass and it's not fake. Apparently will return to colourless in the new year.
Amazing recommend highly
My man loved this as a gift it was for his Christmas but he was so excited a gave him it early thank you for your fine drink

Trash smooth worth trying
I am only going on a recommendation. My nurse who visits weekly needed a lift so it was a littlexmas gift to show my appreciation. He drinks jack Daniels and had never tried this one but as he said he's hooked much easier than the normal one and smoother.
I’m much more of a Scotch & Irish man, but I decided to give this a try after hearing good things. I’ve had this both neat and with rocks and it was decent both ways, though I think I marginally preferred it with rocks. I’m not a JD drinker by any means, and if I’m honest, normal JD is the reason why I’ve never given bourbon much of a chance, until purchasing this on a lockdown whim (you all do it too don’t judge me!) So you can imagine I was going into this with low enough expectations. I’ve had a few tumbler of this now, on a few separate occasions, usually after a big dinner and a long day at work; I have to say I really enjoy it for what it is. I find it’s easy to drink, has a distinctive taste and is nice enough to be a treat after a long day, plus it’s not exactly expensive. It has a little bit of a bite to it but isn’t in the same category as the likes of scotch or Japanese. I think it’s a decent drink overall, I suspect anyone who likes whiskey will enjoy it, and many who don’t likely will too; probably a decent present as the box is also beautiful and the label is very nice. For the price I paid I don’t think you can go too far wrong with this.
For JD collections
Purchased for the shelf display of JD which I love. On offer at 22 quid so well worth it. Came in a box which was unblemished if for a gift. Not as expensive as the Sinatra or discontinued silver select I have, but just as cherished. The single barrel barrel strength at 64.5% is the best if you can get it at a reasonable price (I got 1 for 55 and the other for 62)
