Customer Rating

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

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Rather closed and restrained; takes time to unravel. Tightly knit malt, lots of spiciness lurking underneath.

    Palate: Mint and menthol appear from nowhere, along with a big, rich spiciness, and suddenly you realise the complexity you’re dealing with: cinnamon and clove, apple, mango, biscuit, oats, white pepper, but all well defined and distinct.

    Finish: Very long lasting, with the spices and fruit all lingering. This needs time to contemplate.

  • 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.

    I have tried this now twice along with the 12 year old at the same tasting. My friends and I all greatly prefer the 12. Perhaps we got a bad bottle of 21, but it was not very good.

    I have to admit I didn''t think they could get better than the old 15 year old and expected the extra age would damage this but it''s so well balanced. This is truly amazing. I live for such whiskeys.

    Took Peters advice and bought it for myself as a birthday gift. This is a very good whisky for this price area. Highly recommended!

    Nose: It's a lot less 'harsh' than I would have expected. There's hints of nuts and fruit. Palate: It's oak, sherry, maybe some vanilla, AND OMG IT'S CREAMY. Finish: Lasts pretty long, definitely longer than the 12 and 15 but it lasts long in a good way. Comment: Amazing whiskey for the price. Well worth it. This would make a fine birthday / christmas gift for yourself.
