• Redbreast 12 Year Old
Product Description

A well-balanced single pot still Irish whiskey, Redbreast 12 Year Old has been matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, creating a sweet-and-spicy character. The nose holds aromas of sweet fruit, toasted oak and warm spices, and the palate offers notes of buttery hot-cross-buns, dried fruits, baking spices and spicy oak.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Michael Jackson

    • Nose

      Clean, fresh. Hint of linseed. Nuts. Cake.

    • Palate

      By far the biggest of this selection. Assertive and complex, with lots of development and seemingly infinite dimension. Ginger cake, brazil nuts, treacle.

    • Finish

      Liquorice-like sherry notes.

    • Comment

      Delicious, soothing, contemplative. A great whiskey. Makes me want to get on a plane to Dublin immediately.

  • Tasting Notes by Jim Murray

    • Nose

      With Green Spot, the most impressive of Irish noses. There's a fruity, almost rye-like quality, and deft, honeyed sweetness, a touch of sherry, cream soda vanilla and some peppery notes. Breathtaking.

    • Palate

      The flavours take off in all directions. Spiciness and a pot still backbone softened by sherry. Very firm with some toffee.

    • Finish

      Oily, some liquorice and enormous sweet-sour complexity. Spicy and long.

    • Comment

      Not quite perfect, but still an astonishing experience.

  • Tasting Notes by Peter Mulryan

    • Nose

      The very Irish nose tweak of resin, sherry and linseed.

    • Palate

      Fat and oily. Layers of satin ginger, silk honey and hints of spicy liquorice.

    • Finish

      Vanilla pods and marsala.

    • Comment

      This is what real pure pot still whiskey is all about, a glorious contradiction of soft fruit and firm grain, oily seeds and sweet wood. World beating stuff.

  • Tasting Notes by Dave Broom

    • Nose

      Intense and full blooded. Pot still richness: citrus oils, hot sealing wax, leather, tobacco, tea, maraschino, overripe fruits, marzipan. Exemplary.

    • Palate

      Ridiculously big. Oozes into the mouth and erupts. Spices galore to the finish. Oily and unctuous.

    • Finish

      Long, rich, oily.

    • Comment

      Whiskey covering the entire spectrum of aroma, taste, feel, flavour. World class.

    Benji,

    Redbreast 12 is all kinds of delicious! The nose is beautiful, it’s smooth to drink and full of magnificent fruity, nutty, honey and cakey flavours. It really is as good as non-peated whisky gets.
