Redbreast 21 Year Old
70cl / 46%
Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
The oldest expression from Redbreast so far, this is a combination of malted and unmalted barley matured in a mixture of Bourbon barrels and first fill Oloroso casks resulting in a rich and complex whiskey.

Tasting Notes:
Producer's Notes

Nose: Remarkable aroma spanning fresh tropical fruits, nuts and rich dried fruit.

Taste: Soft vanilla, toasted oak, sherry nuttiness with a dusting of pot still spices. Luscious fleshy fruit notes complete the creamy mouth feel.

Finish: Lingers, seemingly forever, to oak and pot still spices and then the final bow from the barley – where it all began.

Tasting Notes by Tim F

Nose: Wonderful notes of almond, blackcurrant and autumn leaves, with lightly-singed melon and fresh ginger.  A coppery note, with chamois leather and classic sherried raisin notes, plus flapjacks and syrup hints.  Further notes of bramble, tweed and old orange liqueur.

Palate: Unctuous, deep and silky-smooth, with bramble berries and copper to the fore.  Develops raisin syrup, porridge, apple pie and hints of clove, cinnamon and wood glue. The sherry shows well without being dominant and the spicy pot still character is present but more restrained than in the exuberant 12 year old.

Finish: Long, warming, honey and raisin with the spices lingering.

Comment: Absolutely wonderful. It’s a premium price-bracket, but the liquid more than justifies the cost.
