I just got my hands on 2 bottles of Redbreast Blend.
one is lighter in colour than the other too.
There is a 71 on the bottom of one of the bottles.the label is a bit faded but if it's from 1971 it looks great.
the other one is perfect.
i tried buying on a few years back on whiskyauctions.com but it hit €150 and i pulled out.thankfully these didn't go so high.
happy days :D

I have been informed that they are a recent release.i should have known they are from Dillan's and not Gilbey's.they also have a bar code and Der Grun Point. but rare as hens teeth all the same.

This is good whisky Jazz. Enjoy.


I've got a bottle of this stashed as well, but won't be opened until I retire.

I haven't posted in more than 2 months yet no whisky purchases...all tequila.

Fina Estampa Blanco & Reposado - my favorite tequila so far. Dangerously drinkable, this has the gorgeous softness/fruitiness/sweetness of a good highland, with still plenty of agave hit in the rep. Looking forward to trying the Anejo.
El Espolon Blanco & Reposado - I prefer the blanco, though both are delicious and at less than $20 the best value tequilas I've tried. For a Los Altos distillery this has all the earthy/vegetal/peppery agave notes of a complex lowland.
Corzo Reposado - a little too soft, tasty enough though.
Casa Noble 2 year Anejo - lovely as an occasional treat, I find it a little dominated by vanilla with not enough agave notes. Going down marvelously tonight though, I enjoy it most as an accompaniment to a margarita or after several other tequilas.

HS, any particular one stand out to you that is a repeat purchase?

Both Fina Estampas and the Espolon Blanco will undoubtedly be repeat purchases (and as I said, I'm definitely going to try the Fina Estampa Anejo). All the above have mostly been for sipping, but the FE rep makes the best margarita I've ever had (3 oz of FE reposado, juice of 3 small limes, juice of 1/2 small navel orange, 4 teaspoons agave nectar).

I've tried several other 100% de agave tequilas at bars recently (Pura Vida silver - bleh; Campo Azul blanco - sour; Herradura reposado - bitter; Corralejo reposado - very soft but tasty; Cazadores anejo - delicious, must buy).

My next tequila purchases are likely to be Siete Lequas (silver only available locally), Chinaco, and 1921. Unfortunately Fortaleza (Los Abuelos) isn't distributed in Texas -though it's in your neck of the woods - as that's the one I'd most like to try. I'm gravitating more towards blancos and reposados than anejos, as I really love the taste of agave, but I'll give some more anejos a try too.

It's fantastic. This isn't my first bottle, and won't be my last. The best rye imo, cost wise that is. It's half the price of a Saz 18 over here (my overall fave), and i'd settle for 2 High Wests anyday. Yeah, i love it, damn bottles don't seem to last 5 mins though.

Killer acquisition as always, Dramtastic!

Bah, my whisky-related activities has been a little on the low-down recently due to re-enrolment at university, and also trying to save money for an overseas trip. Last thing I received was the Spirit of Unity benefit whisky. Yet to open it, though.

Finally! After months of looking, I acquired a bottle of "Snow Phoenix" in the metal case. $89.95 at the LCBO in Thunder Bay enroute to Longlac. (Europeans, you'll have to look at a google map to see where the heck I've gone. Let's just say it's 9 hours away by road from the Manitoba border and not yet in the middle of Ontario.

HAPPY CANADA DAY!
