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.

    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.

    No, this is the second edition bottling

    Do you know if it is the first edition ?

    One of the greatest whiskies in the world.

  • Danny Hughes 22 January 2011

    This is my second favorite Irish whiskey. It is bold and rich with hints of honey and vanilla. It has a waxy mouth feel, with layers of complexity and a nice long finish. If you like this, I would also highly recommend Green Spot.Also, the normal nose of this whiskey is normally sweet and inviting, with no sulpher at all! I expect that those who mentioned this in their comments somehow got bad bottles.

    Just bought a bottle of this from the Systembolaget in Sweden. Got to agree with the sulphury aroma. Although not very strong but it's there, more akin towards burnt gunpowder than rubber. I wonder how big batches they bottle each time. A very good Irish whiskey none the less. Quite different from the 12 yo.

    Sounds like a bad bottle. You could bring it back to the store. Irish Distillers' stuff shouldn't taste sulphury, as they don't use casks that have been sulphured. They import the sherry casks in the winter to avoid spoiling too. The 2005 edition of the Redbreast 15 is one of the greatest whiskies I've ever tasted.

    I purchased a bottle from Ireland (a different store - NOT FROM The WHISKY EXCHANGE). When the bottle was opened there was a very strong sulphur aroma. The smell was of very burnt match sticks and "natural gas". The taste was sort of powdery and burnt. So I'm assuming that there was a problem with that bottle or cask. I thought I should let others know in case. I've never had a bad bottle from TWE or of the 12 yr. old Redbreast, which is magnificent.
