Customer Rating
A sumptuous single pot still whiskey with a great degree of ageing, Redbreast 15 is richer, earthier and stronger than its 12 year old sibling. An essential part of any whiskey-drinker's education.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Aromas of fruit compote, cinnamon and clove. Good clean streak running through it, but the rich spiciness dominates.

    Palate: A touch drier than expected, with austere peppery spice making its presence felt, but sweetened up with spicy oak and fresh apple and mango.

    Finish: Dry, peppery, spicy.

  • Tasting Notes by Robin Laing, World Whiskies Awards 2012

    Deep dark honey, marzipan, caramel and fudge balance. Sandalwood, mango, wood and tea bags - rich and aromatic. Palate is amazing! Liquorice Allsorts, sugarcoated fennel seeds, crystallised ginger, sweet cinnamon, sherry, children's cough medicine and toffees.

    Redbreast is a very good whiskey and one of the bests in its style, Single Pot Still Irish Whisky. This is a different style and also very good indeed as any other style of good whisky(ey) in the world. I have experienced the 12, 15 and CS, they are all very good, but I prefer the 15 because is the sweetest one. Due to unmalted barley influence and the proccess itself, all they have a common characteristic in their taste, and some of them are very delicious like Jameson 12 (Blended made with Pot Still content), Power's, Greenspot,etc. An other style of Irish whiskey I like very much too and is also one of my favourites is Bushmills 21.

    We may live in DRC but some of us love and know our whiskies. Last week we had a sampling evening around the campfire and, as money was not the object, some very fine whiskies were sampled. My offering was the Redbreast 15.... it was unanimous.... it won gloriously

    This is one of the great whiskeys of the world, and a shining example of the rich and complex flavors the single pot still style can deliver. This is expensive, but very much on my list of favorites. This is worth traveling to find. Bottles once opened tend to disappear into blissful enjoyment quite quickly.

    Nose is sticky tofee pudding with dried fruit aromas. Palate. Very smooth stone fruit flavours. Finish. Peppery liquorice flavour lingers on the roof of your mouth.

    Amazing drink fo an evening of romantic solitude. Very nice and slightly growing effect that makes you feel being embraced by this spiritual spirit.

    Cinnamon, cinnamon, cinnamon. On the nose, in the taste & through the finish. Mix in honey & mango notes on the nose. Mango, honey & smokey char on the taste. The finish brings in the pepper & cloves that brings alive a truly lovely single pot still.

    Bought this while passing through Ireland, a few reviews I've read from sources in the states think it's a little too bold and they favor the 12 yo. Personally, I like the 15 better for sipping. Still very smooth but a little more complex and aromatic to me.

    Wau, this is something. The infusion of honeyd fruit compote, herbal notes and spiciness towards to the perfect balance. The best irish Potstill and actually one of the best whisk(e)y I have had in recent years. Even better than Redbreast CS B1/12. Unchillfilteration shows in extra complexity and extra worth of money, this is a bargain. However, I suggest to decant the whiskey first to full get experience. This one opens up slowly, but when it opens up it just go on and on...

    A good step up from the 12. It offers much more character. This one is nearly as good as the first edition back in 2005. I''m glad they desided to keep it. Redbreast is back and it''s here to stay.

    best you can get, no need to look any further

    Brilliant, 46% but no harsh alcohol taste. Long mellow caramel flavour. Lovely nose, develops a definite hint of fine cognac in the glass. Hope Tullamore DEW can produce somthing like this in their new distillery for bicentenary 2029.

    WITHOUT QUESTION ....THE BEST WHISKEY IN THE WORLD.

  • HPK 13 November 2011

    Gets smoother by the drink, sweeter than Middleton with a heavier, oilier texture. It almost has the taste of whiskey/cognac mixture. Complex flavour. I haven't tried the 12 year but this is one to savour!

    This whiskey proves there is something to the pot still,traditional if nothing else. The pure pot still gives a fantastic taste and this is top class, Jameson's more upmarket brands are also potstilled with great taste.

  • TWE Admin 27 June 2011

    No, this is the second edition bottling
