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 hate to do this, because it the price is exorbitant, but this is the best Irish whiskey I have had. There are cheaper alternatives that come close but the complexity in this is something else.

    Started with the 12 then 15 now onto the 21, all top class but this 21 is definitely a bit special. Best whiskey on the market. Doesn't get any smoother.

    My first sip of Red Breast 21 was delicious to every single tastebud. I actually enjoy whiskeys and I'm not one to get caught in the "hype" of name or price point. The notes have been described by others but its really a personal palate experience. Sip by sip, I savored every drop and picked up a bottle at The Loop on the way home.

    Redbreast 21 – best whiskey. Nothing compares, it is quite an unforgettable experience. I brought one bottle from Ireland last year and shared with special friends. Everyone shared the same opinion about one of the best ever tasted.

    I don't normally spend this kind of money on spirits. I was treated this one at a fancy local restaurant. Frankly I've never tasted anything like this. The complexity was amazing. The aroma was very refined like a classy cologne. Each sip produced a remarkable ensemble of flavors that slowly developed in my mouth, even the aftertaste continued to develop. I understand that this whiskey is in short supply so I bought a bottle but due to the price I'm saving it for very special occasions.

    A lovely sip. Purchased as a gift to myself after a rather arduous school year, and worth every cent. Aromatic. Creamy. Rich, warm, spicy finish. I believe I need just a bit more, please.

    Bought a bottle of 21 and found myself appreciating fine Irish whisky. Other than living in Ireland, this is the closest to the green ire.

    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.
